Overview

Bordeaux Mountain Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Wonderful location for a family on a budget or for those who used to stay at Maho! Gorgeous views of Coral Bay. Cute little cottage (this is not a luxury villa) sleeps up to 6: two on queen size bed in bedroom, two in king size bed in the loft, and two on full size sleeper sofa. Updated kitchen is fully stocked with all the necessary utensils, plates, cups, and cooking supplies.

This cottage sits at the bottom of the lot and thus has many steps (82) down to the unit. This cottage is probably not for the elderly.

The cottage has air conditioning throughout, with the exception of the screened in porch and screened-in bathroom - what a view from the bathroom! The bathroom was recently renovated with all new tile and fixtures.

Relax on the new deck and porch while sipping cocktails looking at the boats anchored just below. Plenty of nearby restaurants and beaches to keep you busy all day long!

For those who have been to St John before you can rest easy that the road to the house is a concrete straightaway with no switchbacks!

Why The Owner chose Bordeaux Mountain

We just love the peace and quiet of Coral Bay. We bought this particular house because the drive to the house is up a simple straight concrete road with no switchbacks and no issues.

Cozy Cottage with great views

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I recently spent 10 delightful days on St John at The Blue Wrasse. Everything is as advertised with great views, a nice kitchen, and some very nice extras like a bountiful supply of beach towels (much appreciated!), snorkeling gear and beach chairs.

I also want to mention that the on-island caretaker, Jim, was extremely helpful when my wife and I first arrived after dark and had trouble with our rental vehicle. After a long day of travel he was instrumental in helping us get things straightened out and even made a quick run to Love's market for some much needed supplies. Thanks Jim!! Above and beyond!!

The only negative during our stay was a leaky ceiling in the lower bedroom. For part of our stay we were joined by my wife's brother and his wife. My wife and I took the lower level bedroom and were there on a day when we had an all day rainstorm (complete with island flooding). During that time the ceiling to the bedroom leaked a considerable amount. I suspect it has to do with the fact that part of the bedroom sits below the screened porch. During the rainstorms the porch took in quite a lot of wind blown water and the results were a leaky, damp, wet lower level. Fortunately the leaking did not directly affect the bed but it still made for a floor slippery and an unpleasant dampness. I should say that conditions on the island that day were exceptional with regard to the wind and rain and we didn't experience any leaking on days when we had normal rain showers.

All in all this is a cozy and comfortable bargain of a place.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! Yes, you are right that was an exceptionally bad and unusual day with a tropical storm that passed just over St John and flooding all over the island from over 9 inches of rain. I'm glad to hear the other days with normal rain didn't have any leaks. Come again!

Best spot on St John yet! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5
Been traveling to St John since 1999 and this was the best place we have stayed at. Even better that its such a great deal! The new bathroom was fantastic (I think it was completed just before our stay). We slept in the lower master bedroom and the mattress was comfortable and the A/C unit had been replaced so we slept peacefully and great. Our son slept up on the kingsize bed in the loft and loved having his own space.

Of course the best part of the cottage is the views. Wow! Its so secluded and private which really makes it a relaxing spot at the end of a day at the beach.

The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you could ever need.

I`ve had two knee replacements but the stairs are obviously fairly new and have a nice railing so I found them to not be a problem.

Again, this would be a great place to stay even if it weren't so inexpensive. The fact that its also cheap is just a bonus! We will be back.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay as well as our improvements. Yes, that was a new A/C unit in the bedroom as well as a new mattress in the master. Loving the new bathroom tile too!

Come back again!

Nice stay.

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I were looking for an inexpensive place that would hold us and possibly a daughter or three if they decided to come down. Blue Wrasse fit the bill. Take a close look at the posted pictures. They are pretty much spot on as to what you are getting.

The main floor of the cottage is one room (probably 16x16 or 20x20) that includes a well stocked kitchen, a pretty comfortable couch, a small two chair dining "bar", a small HDTV with cable and wi-fi, door to the outdoor screened-in toilet/shower room, front door to the screened-in porch, and the ladder up to the small loft.

The outdoor screened-in toilet/shower room included a sink with small mirror, full size toilet, and a shower area just outside the door back into the house. The area would be small/cramped if more than two or three people are staying at once.

The small loft above the main floor is reached by a ladder in the corner of the main room by the bathroom door and includes what we thought was a king sized mattress on the floor of the loft. I think now it was a twin sized mattress against the wall and a twin sized box spring on the open side of the loft. I never took the time to pick up the open side "mattress" to confirm but there was a definite difference in firmness from one side to the other. The ceiling in the loft is low so watch your head getting into and out of bed. The ladder can be a bit tricky as well. We slept in the loft all nights except the first night (see below for reason). The provided fan, along with the AC was perfect for sleeping.

The main bedroom is reached by going out of the main room, through the screened-in porch, then out on the deck and down a flight of stairs. The main bedroom is build below the main room. This room included a queen sized bed (comfortable), a 6 drawer chest, a small child-size bed, and a small refrigerator. We slept in this room the first night, but the AC unit was so loud that we could not sleep when the condenser kicked on. Not sure if the unit is going bad, or the noise is just a product of the installation method, but it was beyond loud. It could be heard upstairs when running as well.

We counted 110 steps from parking area to the screen door of the cottage. Made that up/down 2 or 3 times a day.

My only complaint was the loud AC in the main bedroom.

Includes beach chairs and a small cooler. Bring or rent snorkel gear - has some but... Purchase gallon jugs of drinking water. Grill works perfectly.

Sweet Repeat

  • 5 of 5
This was our second two week stay at The Blue Wrasse, and it was as wonderful as the first! We love the amenities offered -- gas grill, full size range, microwave, fully equipped kitchen (with cook's tools, blender, coffee maker and toaster), new cotton sheets, beach towels and chairs, fans, etc. The cottage is a fabulous home away from home with an open air shower, screened in porch and killer view of Coral Harbor. There is air conditioning if needed. We like sleeping in the loft with its king size bed. All windows, except one, and the porch are screened, so mosquitoes are not a problem as they can be on island. Although we are both over 55, we are physically active and have no problems with the stairs from the parking area down to the cottage. We love the quieter Coral Bay area, and with a rental car, all beaches, snorkeling spots, trails, grocery stores, and dining options are accessible. Love City Market is close by and has a good selection of groceries, sunscreen, beer and wine. The Starfish Market, Pine Peace Market, the Chelsea Drugstore and Starfish Wine & Cheese in Cruz Bay are great places for any provisions. The Starfish Market also has a great deli for meals and sandwiches for your picnics. The Papaya Cafe Bookstore in The Market Place at Cruz Bay has heavenly coffee and a wonderful selection of new and used books. The Friends of the National Park store in Mongoose Junction is great for gifts and t shirts. Our favorite places to eat are The High Tide, Pickles in Paradise, Cafe Livin', and The Tourist Trap. The Starfish Market also has a great deli for meals and sandwiches for your picnics. The caretaker and property owner are very responsive to the comfort and safety of their guests. Our only concern, when it came time to book this year, was how quickly the calendar fills up! We are already looking forward to our next visit!!!

Clean, budget friendly lodging

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the Blue Wrasse. It provided a clean, comfortable and reasonably priced place to stay on St. John. The owner and manager were very helpful with trip planning tips and respectful of our privacy when arranging for a plumber to fix a small leak. The Blue Wrasse was very clean and a great place to relax after a day exploring the islands. The sunrises were gorgeous. We found it very easy to cook dinner each night in the clean kitchen. There were plenty of towels, including beach towels, for our family of 5 to use for the week. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to other families.
