Coral Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Tropical 2BR eco-cottage;If you loved Maho Bay,you'll love this!On hiking trail!

DON'T MISS THE MOVIE ON THE 'AMMENITIES' PAGE! Coral Bay Eco-Retreat: Tropical living off-the-grid, Live simply and close to nature on beautiful St. John. If you liked Maho Bay Camp, you'll LOVE this place! A hiker's and lovers' paradise, private and remote, open-air and silence. Solar-powered, located on historic Johnny Horn Trail, a one mile hike to primo snorkeling at Waterlemon Cay and Leinster Bay. Romantic with stunning views and spacious private decks overlooking Caribbean Sea, Coral Bay and the British Virgin Islands. On the border of the Virgin Islands National Park, only half a mile to Coral Bay restaurants, bars and buses to Salt Pond or Cruz Bay. With two bedrooms (including the Love Nest and the Life's a Beach Loft), the retreat is best suited for a couple or two firends. An option is a couple and a third person such as a child over 8 years old. This allows options with sleeping arrangements and weather management options.

Located directly on the historic Johnny Horn Trail (mile hike to famous snorkeling Waterlemon Cay beach!) and bordering the Virgin Islands National Park, this off-the-grid eco-retreat is an open-air/partially screened home that is solar-powered, cooled by the tradewinds, sustained by tropical showers and warmed by the sun. Overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Hurricane Hole and the British Virgin Islands to Virgin Gorda, the view is stunning and the sunrises are spectacular.

Coral Bay Eco-Retreat offers the unique opportunity to be in a remote location, yet only half a mile from the heart of Coral Bay and a mile hike to the beach. It's perfect for hikers and adventurers wanting to get away from it all and experience island eco-living “off the beaten path” in a tropical setting. Experience quiet for writing, relaxing or contemplation, punctuated by the sounds of the surf, birds, tree frogs, island sheep and donkeys. One guest claimed, 'As I watched the sun go down, I felt my blood pressure do the same!' Others have called this home a treehouse, as it is surrounded by trees, has trees growing through the decks, and even has a tree growing right next to the bed!

The large open deck is nestled among the trees and is perfect for admiring the view, meditating during sunrise (we call it the Morning Show) or for star-gazing on a balmy Caribbean night. It offers a glass-top solar umbrella table for outdoor dining with a view, a Weber grill and a Pawley Island hammock for two for the owner's favorite sport: hammock-warming! It is accessed by 'the stairway to heaven', 44 steps up to the house, lighted by solar lights and dotted with hoop-vine, night-blooming cirrus and turpentine trees.

The deck connects through double cypress doors to the screened-in living room which has a large comfy sofa, old-style rocking chair, books, DVD player/screen, charging area for electronic devices and Caribbean art, mostly of Caribbean women, created by Caribbean women. Generally, a strong cell phone signal is usually available, especially for AT&T and free wireless internet..

The island-style open-air kitchen features a very busy hummingbird feeder and a coconut banana quit feeder, attracting many tiny yellow banana quits (official bird of the Virgin Islands) who land on your hand to enjoy sugar, greeting you each morning. This old-time Caribbean style kitchen has a mermaid theme with hanging island baskets and kitchen antiques collected on down-island travels including iron skillets, kettles, even an old island school bell. The porch-style kitchen overlooks a herb /aloe/papaya/spinach/basil/banana/pineapple garden and utilizes solar-warmed rainwater that is gravity-fed from a small water tower made of recycled 'drums'. For true water conservation and in keeping with old island traditions, the “dishwasher” is a dishpan/bamboo dishdrainer in which dishwater is saved for deck and garden plants. It has a spacious solar-powered Sunfrost frig (no freezer), a non-electronic six-burner stove and oven (no microwave), a bar-style seating area overlooking the view, dishes, bamboo and eco-cookware coffee-bean grinder and a stove-top toaster. Eight gallons of purified island drinking water (in recycled gallon jugs) are provided.

Two bedrooms offer fabulous views from your pillow, both with queen beds with natural cotton bedding in tropical colors, lots of pillows, a heavenly, puffy duvet and romantic and practical mosquito netting. Cooled by the tradewinds, there are also low-wattage reading lights. The downstairs 'Love Nest', open-to-nature bedroom, has a private full bath, garden with island mural (created by our first guest), massage table area and deck with a tree growing bedside and a coconut shell bird feeder . The white 'Life's a Beach' loft bedroom is screened-in and accessed by a stairway from the living room, features a Caribbean style hip roof/ceiling, boat-style awning/hatches, a modified four-poster bed and photos of St. John beaches.

Open-air bathrooms feature fixtures with water-conservation flushes, a half bath on the main-floor and an indoor shower and an outdoor garden shower. Rain water is collected from the roof, stored in cisterns, considered precious, limited and carefully conserved. Guests are encouraged to take the St. John Eco-Challenge: take cool-water, St John eco-showers (not hot), limit flushing, turn off lights, dry your hair in the breeze and leave a zero 'island eco-footprint, flip-flop style'!

At this eco-retreat, you are at one with nature; the perfect place for you if you're okay with walking up hills (from the driveway to the house!), up steps (44 of them to the house), love to hike and drive a rough trail in four-wheel drive. If you're not highly allergic, critter-phobic or sensitive to tropical gheckos (little lizards) or occasion flying bugs who visit this open-air home, you'll love it! Generally, the tradewinds keep mosquitoes and no-see-ums to a minimum and frogs and hermit crabs are our natural bug exterminators! Since it's off-the-grid, there are no hair dryers, microwave, dishwasher, hot water (Note: It is solar-warmed), air conditioners...or even a kitchen sink! But in their place are awesome views, privacy, gentle breezes, only natural sounds and star-lit nights...and high speed internet! Take the St. John Eco Challenge and see how small your environmental carbon footprint can be!

If you want a great view, peace and quiet, eco-adventure and a natural setting, then Coral Bay Eco-retreat is the home for you! Must love birds!

About Allison Smith

26 year resident of St. John, Allison offers her eco-home to fellow nature-lover guests as a haven for relaxation and rejuvenation. She built the home herself (with a little help from her friends!) over a period of 15 years during a time of minimal access to basic construction services; ie she took materials up the rigorous Johnny Horn Trail in her jeep! She's created a natural home, complete with birds that land in your hand and hopes that you'll find the same serenity as you watch the sunrise from your bed! She lives on a nearby smaller island and is readily available to help in any way. She grew up in Florida and sailed to the Virgin Islands in her own sailboat, spending six months at sea en route. She has devoted her life to that of service, first as a school counselor, then as the 'island shrink' and founder and director of the islands first non-profit organization, the People Moving Forward Foundation. Later she and her daughter founded Viva Villas, a successful property management company on St. John and Sunshine Jeep rental. Guided to create spiritual growth opportunities, she created Rejuvenation Vacations, specializing in retreats for relaxation, yoga and spiritual growth. She has taught workshops and classes on A Course in Miracles, prosperity consciousness, living an optimum life experience and coordinates retreats for individuals on St. John. She has a beautiful daughter, Angie, and five fabulous grandchildren, three of whom are on St. John.

Allison Smith purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Allison Smith chose Coral Bay

The Coral Bay Eco Retreat offers an opportunity to experience off-the-grid living in a tropical setting. The energy of the area, overlooking the VI National Park as well as bordering it provides a serene and peaceful setting with an awesome view and silence, a rare commodity in these times! At one point, it was a haven for 'rescue goats' who had been injured or abandoned, as an adjunct to the island's animal care center, hosting as many as 15 little goats in a stable built by her and her grandson. This house is like no other, unique and sweet, simple and close to nature.

What makes this cottage unique

* Location! Located on the historic Johnny Horn Trail, on the border of the Virgin Islands National Park, you're only a half mile jeep ride or hike from the heart of Coral Bay with its shops, bars and restaurants and a mile from the beaches of the VI National Park including the famous snorkeling of Waterlemon Cay. Peaceful and quiet!

* Unique home: open air, solar-powered, gathered rain water, trees growing through the decks, birds that land in your hand!Totally sustainable.

* Massage table on site for home-based massage visits

So wonderful I'm tempted to keep it a secret

  • 5 of 5

Allison's house-not to mention Allison--are everything you could ask for if you want a peaceful, private, quiet, bright and colorful, clean, cozy, comfortable and unique retreat. It was exactly what I was looking for. It is perfectly appointed with the essentials: cooking equipment, utensils, stove, fridge, grill, coolers, drinking water supplied, basic cooking spices, guide books, maps--even an onsite massage table! I was so entranced by the birds, hammock and views that I had no use for the tv/video equipment, but it's there if you want it. Allison also provided a local cell phone, which came in handy because my carrier (Verizon) had no service there. The outdoor bed, bathroom and kitchen were my favorite things, besides the bananaquits Allison has trained to eat out of your hand.

Allison was the consummate host, leading me from Cruz Bay to Coral Bay, stopping along the way to point out premium views, and then up the steep, rough hill to the house in my first-ever 4WD adventure. (I loved the drive after my virgin ascent--very proud of myself every time I conquered it.) She picked up my grocery order before meeting me, and helped me carry it up those infamous 44 steps--which, rather than a hassle, were a great way to enforce a bit of exercise, which made me feel productive and healthy on days when I otherwise just happily lazed around. On get-up-and-go days, it was lovely to be located smack dab on the Johnny Horne Trail.

Allison was also a godsend when my travel was screwed up on my way down--she was so understanding about the stress the situation created, which helped me let it go; she arranged my stop-gap accommodations in St. Thomas; and gave very helpful advice for the hours I was stuck there.

In short, if I ever return to the Virgin Islands, this is without a doubt where I will stay. I will arrange my travel dates so that I can get it, because no matter how many other great places to stay there may be, I found my home at this house.

Owner's Response: Dear R, Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. I'm totally pleased that you feel you've "found your home" here at my retreat and I look forward to your return.....for a longer time! You were wonderful in the setting, soaking up the vibes and the nature, and I love it when a woman is here for a solo retreat. As you know, this is my vision for the house, as an oasis of rejuvenation and relaxation in the desert of modern living stress. You do so much good for so many people, it's a pleasure to be able to support and nurture YOU! I hope your year goes well and that you'll be going back up the Johnny Horn Trail and the 44 steps soon! All the best, Allison

A true home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This little retreat was amazing. It was hard to leave and venture out into Coral Bay because this place was a vacation by itself. The view was amazing . . . There were so many moments while at the eco-retreat that we realized that Allison had gone above and beyond to make this place one you will never forget. If you want to step away from the busy life and into a place that you can rest and replenish the soul . . . this is it!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much. I'm so glad you were able to rest and replenish your soul at the retreat house....that was my intention and desire in creating it. I always felt that the land was such a miracle in itself, the natural energy so unusual, that it would have a higher purpose in addition to being a venue for a relaxing vacation. I'm glad you were inspired by it and enjoyed it and I hope you'll come back! All the best, Allison

Memorable Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect escape from New England's winter! Every day there was a new, beautiful sunrise (we have lots of sunrise pictures!). Being home (back to cold/snow) we have had time to reflect. This was one of our all time most memorable adventures. To be in an open-aired living environment for two weeks was unique in itself. We had no problem adjusting to the off-grid experience - limited water usage, cool showers, solar electricity, natural 'air conditioning'! It was private and remote. The 4-wheel jeep ride up/down the access road became routine. As did the exercise of walking up/down the steep hill/stairs to reach this true tree house. It was quiet. It had gorgeous views. Nature was all around us. We loved the bananaquits and the hummingbirds. Even came to enjoy the shy encounters with the geckos and Freddy! We found ourselves so relaxed and comfortable that we did not feel the need to leave this place. Although we did take a daily trip down to the Oasis Restaurant for dinner take-out. Highly recommend! Our evenings were as memorable sitting waiting for and watching the moonrise. Moonlight became our nightlight! The starry sky was spectacular and we spent many hours sitting on the deck watching it and enjoying the solitude. This is definitely a wonderful place to reconnect with your loved one and find peace within yourself.

When we left we felt we were ready to rejoin the pace of life, but we now reflect upon those two week as a very special time and a longing escape there again. Maybe next year?

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your beautiful heart-felt review.You practically brought me to tears.....you SO got the retreat house and my vision!! As you know, the creation of this retreat is a spiritual journey as a place where one can reconnect with Spirit and Nature and each other in meaningful, magical ways. (And it financially supports my journey as a Unity minister-in-seminary-school.) I'm so gratified and blessed to have had you as my guests. I can almost feel the energy of the retreat house as you describe it....I did a LOL about Freddy. I do hope you can come back and I'm so glad you were able to spend the time here, far away from that dreadful winter in the States this year. Please take care of yourselves and stay in love!!! (and write that book....you're such a beautiful writer). Love, Allison

Loved, loved loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this off the grid getaway.....talk about disconnecting...in the best of ways...this is a great place to do that. We loved being out doors laying in the double hammock, eating under the solar lit umbrella and cooking in the open air kitchen with the bananaquits. The view is the best we have ever had in St John. My very favorite part was the outdoor bed, with mosquito netting, that had the most phenomenal view of the sunrise....from the pillow. Allison was very responsive when we were making the plans. And the house was well thought out and definitely had everything we needed. I definitely recommend to people who like the outdoors and really want to get away.

Tree House Living at it's Finest

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I both agreed that our favorite part of our St. John vacation was greeting the sun each morning in our cozy tree house bed; the muted pastel of the sunrise sky perfectly complimented by the baby blue accents of the deck made even softer seen through the gossamer of the rustling, romantic netting surrounding us, the cacophonous sounds of the jungle ready with a serenade. Breaking the spell and getting out of bed was rewarded with a strong cup of coffee and breakfast taken on the upstairs deck where the sweeping views were even more impressive.

Allison was a wonderful host and made sure that we had everything we needed for a self-sufficient getaway. She provided wonderful information and plenty of communication before our arrival to ensure we had a relaxing and stress-free vacation. That strong coffee I brought from home was on Allison's recommendation. Our rental car was waiting for us at the ferry was thanks to Allison contacting our car company in advance of our arrival. Allison greeted us there herself and gave us an escort from Cruz Bay to the cottage, making sure to point out important sign-posts and landmarks which were vital to our navigation throughout the trip. We even had groceries waiting for us upon arrival (provided by St. John Provisions) thanks to a recommendation from Allison.

The well appointed kitchen provided most of our meals, the only disappointment being that the gas grill was not working properly during our stay. The cottage was exactly as described and we had no issues limiting our water or power needs as required for the house's ecosystem. The only word of warning I would add to this review is that the mosquitoes were savage. My husband and I used some serious Deet based repellant and it was still not enough to avoid dozens of bites on our legs and arms. The nets were mostly sufficient (though some slipped through stray holes) but as soon as we were in the open we were beset upon immediately and had to spray ourselves liberally. Certainly a small price to pay for the wonderful experience of open air-living but should be taken into account. All of the many other critters (lizards, birds, bees, geckos etc) were delightful and welcome. If we ever visit St. John again we would not hesitate to book Allison's cottage again for our stay.

Owner's Response: Hi M and thank you for the beautifully written review. You sound like an artist with your words! And you eloquently described the morning experience, my favorite time at the cottage as well, especially with "the morning show"/sunrise. I love that you can watch it without lifting your head from the pillow. I didn't know there was a problem with the grill while you were here. It was working great when it was cleaned prior to your arrival and it's working now, so maybe it was a lighting issue? Sometimes it's hard to light if it's too windy and you have to block the wind while you light it or use the hand lighter instead of the red button igniter. I think the mosquitoes were unseasonably difficult all over the island when you were here as it was right after a big rain and generally three days after a rain they come out big time. Usually the tradewinds keep them away except in places where it's not breezy or at sunrise/sunset when the tides change and the wind subsides. The screened-in loft can also be a sanctuary from them. I'm so sorry about your bites and I hope they healed quickly after you left the tropics and got into the snow! And that you could still show off your tan when you got to Boston. All in all, it sounds like you loved the house and I'll look forward to your return. Thanks again! Allison

Vacation of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

This was the vacation of a lifetime for us. Allison is correct in saying that if you loved Maho Bay Camps, you’ll love her Eco Retreat. It’s better! There is privacy, the most amazing view and there are more levels of comfort. We loved being able to pack our snorkeling gear and hike to Waterlemon Bay or Brown Bay. If you wish to explore the entire island, you need to rent a car. We had a Jeep for a part of our stay. Allison is an amazing person, businesswoman and host. She went above and beyond, and is a pleasure to correspond with and talk to. We did not miss a thing at the cottage and when our travels take us back to St. John, we hope to find her place available for rent.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review and for joining us at the retreat house/tree house! I'm so glad you loved it, that the internet worked so well and that you were able to experience the beauty of St. John, hiking and all. I didn't even mind picking you up on Thanksgiving and I'm really glad the pre-order worked out so well. I'm always learning and so appreciate your feedback...on many levels. Take good care of yourselves, especially with the travel to India, and your Mom and come back soon!

Car: not necessary

The Coral Bay Eco Retreat is located in Coral Bay, St. John on the border of the Virgin Islands National Park, off the historic and challenging Johnny Horn trail, about half a mile from the beautiful Emmaus Moravian Church, a mile from the beach, a few miles from an organic farm. The Trail requires an adventurous spirit and is traveled only by 4 wheel drive vehicle, horseback or hiking. Hiking up the trail takes you to the historic Annaberg Sugar ruins, the Brown Bay Trail, Leinster Bay and the snorkeling gem, Waterlemon Cay.

Hiking or driving down the trail leads to the “heart of Coral Bay” with its popular restaurants and bars that often have live entertainment and where you can hang out with friendly “locals” such as Skinny Legs, Pickles, Island Blues, Aqua Bistro and Donkey Diner. There are two Coral Bay island markets with ATM’s and two mail services amd shops including the CocoLobo complex. The Vitran bus stop is at the end of the Trail and offers an opportunity to travel west to the Reef Bay Trail and on to Cruz Bay or east to Shipwreck Landing, Miss Lucy’s, yoga classes at Concordia and beautiful Salt Pond Bay…and it only cost a buck! Beware, taking that bus sometimes involves long waits as it runs on island time. If you have a jeep or are a hitch-hiker (it’s generally safe on St. John), you can also access nearby Josephine’s organic farm or the world-famous northshore beaches of St. John, less than a mile-hike away.

Notes:
Although this is a two-bedroom home, it is requested that a maximum of two guests enjoy the home, primarily because it is off-the-grid and in terms of sustainability of rainwater and solar power, more than two guests is too much on the eco-system of the property. It is ideal for two people who want separate areas as well as a romantic setting with extra space for both guests to have their own space as well as the intimacy of the Love Nest or the Loft.
