The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Surf Sound Cottage is the perfect rustic getaway if you are looking for peace and tranquility. Susan is a pleasure to work with and offers exceptional details to make the most of your time on the island. The house is charming, well taken care of and spacious for 2. The views are spectacular and the breezes most welcoming. For August we actually felt chilly with the 20 mph winds. Most of our time was spent outside of the house enjoying the sights and sounds of the island and as we traveled around we were delighted to know that the Johns Foley area or East End was the nicest and most relaxing of areas to be in and if you are looking for fewer crowds & added peacefulness you will find it over here. Having a Jeep is a must, not just to navigate the driveway but the terrain of the island as a whole. It will take your further and deeper into the uncharted off road tracks and well worth the spend.
Just cool breezes, tranquility and the sound of the crashing waves with the occasional rooster for added ambiance is what you will experience here, this is a nature lover’s space… I’m particular to vbo homes when travelling and Susan does a great job of representing her lovely cottage. You won’t be disappointed if you are looking for something unpretentious, relaxing and out of the way- you will find here.
Let’s talk accommodations because that really important to know…. the space is super clean. :-) The kitchen is well stocked, but prices at the market make for dining out to be easier on the wallet. If you’re looking to watch TV on your vacation, you might as well pick up a book, that’s not the focus here. The Bed is comfy but unlike the couch, not so much… the bathroom is really nice- some might think that’s important…lol . We actually opened up the house and enjoyed the natural sounds and breezes that kept us cool all through the night. The open patio out front was my most favorite space to chill. All and all I HIGHLY recommend Surf Sound Cottage and would come back in a heartbeat when we journey to this way again…you won’t find a lovelier hostess and more delightful space for the value.
Thank you Susan, for sharing your perfect slice of paradise with us, we will cherish the memories always.
Sincerely,
Brett & Elizabeth C.

Secluded cottage with great views, new appliances, and comfortable bed

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at Surf Sound Cottage for four nights. Dealing with owner was easy and efficient. A list of recommended food stores, restaurant, activities, etc which came in very handy. Had an issue and called owner and she was available and pleasant/helpful with answer. Location is a 20 min drive to Cruz Bay/downtown but near Concordia Resort which has great restaurant for dinner. Near North shore/ East Shore/ South shore snorkel areas. Clean, affordable, cute property would rec'd without hesitation. However: MUST get 4 wheel drive to get to top of the hill of property, without a doubt! Good idea to bring a flashlight with you as lighting outside property not very bright. Buy case water downtown as you should use that for coffee water and cooking, in my opinion. Only downfall in my situation was only bedroom had air conditioning, and it is very humid and sticky; with allergies this was difficult for me and I spent a large percentage of time when in cottage at night in the bedroom with AC on. Nice of owner to leave a pre-paid calling card so long distance land line calls can be made as cell service and wifi comes and goes. Wifi sign-on code is written on the box in the bedroom on the dresser; Being short, I did not see it until 2nd day! Great place to stay while visiting St. John. Received my deposit back in a timely manner and pleasant note from owner.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5
This was our 12th visit to St. John and our 2nd to this house. Every day when we returned to the house it felt like we were home. The view is outstanding. This is where we plan to stay whenever we return to St. John.

First Timers to St. John and VRBO

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in darkness and it really wasn't that bad. Your passenger has to be a competent navigator. We used our smart phone's GPS to guide us to the house and all our destinations throughout our visit. The driveway wasn't that bad either, we found it easier to go forward up the majority, and then back into the parking spot. Anyway, property was amazing, the privacy was amazing, the views were amazing. There were beach chairs, ample snorkeling gear, coolers and other beach essentials.

A few minuses that were fairly minor. The sunsets early and it gets dark. That leaves a lot of time for movies. The living room furniture isn't arranged for optimum movie watching. Because of that, we used the pull out bed, which is incredibly uncomfortable. The property manager made an unannounced visit, which was probably the biggest issue we had. Other than that, we have no other complaints.

Our most excellent adventure

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spontaneously decided to head to St. John over spring break. We had no air fare, housing, or plan. Thanks to Denise's flexibility, we were able to book Surf Sound Cottage. It was fantastic. The pictures do not do it justice. We loved the privacy and the covered deck. The cottage was outfitted just the way we needed it (beach chairs, snorkel gear, coolers, etc.) We just brought the beer! We welcomed each morning's sunrise and did not find the driveway or the native animals (goats, chickens, donkeys) a burden. In fact, they all contributed to the ambiance. We particularly loved the "sky deck" where we watched the stars from the comfort of a couple of lounge chairs. We explored several beaches we had never visited in the Coral Bay area and found them more fun (and significantly less crowded) than those in the Cruz Bay area. We recommend this cottage highly and thank Denise for sharing a little bit of her "heaven" on earth with us. We will be back!

Unforgettable Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful find! My husband and I had the vacation of a lifetime at the Surf Sound Cottage and find ourselves constantly plotting ways to take some time off and return. The house is adorable and very well maintained. It was truly a "home away from home," with every amenity we could have needed right at our fingertips (coffeemaker, towels, beach chairs, cooler, washer/dryer, etc.). There is also snorkeling gear available if you're the adventurous sort, however, my husband and I found ourselves much more attracted to the blender and the phenomenal view. We were a little intimidated by the driveway at first, but it proved to be much easier than it seemed, and we came to love the seclusion of being the sole resident off of a solitary driveway that can only be accessed by Jeep. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone who appreciates unspoiled landscapes and the slower pace of life at the "Quiet Side of the Quiet Island." We can't wait to come back....
