Our most excellent adventure

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

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....

THE Get-Away of Get-Aways!

I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a secluded, relaxing, private place to retire to after a day's exploration of the island(s). My husband and I stayed a week in December and while there were some rain storms, the temperature was moderate and the continual wind kept the bugs at bay. We only needed repellant when we were hiking and only used the air conditioner one night as the breeze filtered through the windows and caressed us to sleep with the sound of the waves against the sand in the background. I've seen people complain about the donkeys and roosters keeping them awake but after the first night, those sounds became integral to my rest so don't let that deter you! The nighttime symphony of tree frogs is so soothing, you won't truly need to explore the rest of the landscape as the foliage and wildlife right there at Surf Sound will keep you entertained and engage your sense of wonderment. For views, attentive landlords and complete peace, you cannot and will not beat Surf Sound Cottage.

Nov. 14-27 stay @ Surfsound Cottage

My wife and myself had a wonderful 13 night stay at Surfsound Cottage. Denise, the owner was very easy to work with and provided more than enough info. to make our arrival(at night)and entire stay very simple and carefree. The cottage has all the ammenities of home, with a huge kitchen to do our own cooking as needed. The place was spotless and clean and was delightfully decorated in a "island" decor. The driveway up to the cottage was a challenge on arrival but by the second day we had no problem negotiating it at all. We have traveled to STJ many times and are completely used to the mountianous terain so the drive up to Surfsound is nothing out of the ordinary. The location, by itself, on a hillside overlooking John's Folly was very relaxing. Waking to the sound of the surf was exactly what we needed not to mention the great sunrises seen from our wonderful bedroom. The views of some of the British Virgin Islands was our "happy hour" on the great covered veranda almost every afternoon. The bedroom has air conditioning but we never used it because to gentle tradewinds on the hillside always kept us comfortable and cool. The location also was very close to the southshore beaches which we love the most. The cottage is also close to the National Park for day hikes and to Coral Bay for great meals out at lunch or dinner. We highly reccomend this as a great getaway vacation for couples that love adventure and the great out of doors. This is definately the best side of the island for those who like peace and tranquility. Thank you so much, Denise, we will be back and reccomend your little piece of "paradise" to all our friends.

The cottage had everything that we needed, clean and comfortable. Beautiful view, with a great porch that was hard to leave each day. Driveway was a little intimidating at first but easily mastered after the first few trips. Really appreciated the private sun deck, which also made for great stargazing. Loved it! It was exactly what we needed. Plan on returning!
