CORAL BAY ECO RETREAT:TROPICAL LIFE OFF THE GRID,HIKE TO BEACH!

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 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 decks overlooking Caribbean Sea, Coral Bay and the British Virgin Islands. Only half a mile to Coral Bay restaurants, bars and buses to Salt Pond or Cruz Bay.

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 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 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 and turpentine trees.

The deck connects through double cypress doors to the 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 garden and utilizes solar-warmed rainwater that is gravity-fed from a small water tower. For true water conservation and in keeping with old island traditions, the “dishwasher” is a set of dishpans 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. A Stefani ceramic eco-water filter and several gallons of purified island drinking water 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 duvet and romantic and practical mosquito netting. Cooled by the tradewinds, there are also fans and low-wattage reading lights for your comfort. The downstairs 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 loft bedroom is 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 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 an '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 warm), air conditioners...or even a kitchen sink! But in their place are awesome views, privacy, gentle breezes 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!

Speaks english

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

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.

* Location! Located on the historic Johnny Horn Trail, 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!

* Massage table on site for home-based massage visits

The Eco Retreat is incredibly beautiful! The house is amazing. The view is stunning. Honestly, the best on the Island! The beds are soooo comfortable! Every minute of my stay was magical, from the 4wd trek up the Johnny Horn Trail, to my hike to Brown Bay (awesome!). In late afternoon, after a day at one of the gorgeous Northern beaches, or a hike through the woods, I thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor shower, which had warmed up just enough. Evening rituals of simple food, sunset and the gentle glow of sun powered lanterns coming on, just as the stars began to appear, thrilled me. I woke to perfect sunrises each morning and Bananquits making a ruckus just beside the bed. I made friends with the frogs, the rowdy birds and even had coffee with a couple of very civilized crabs. I explored the East end and Coral Bay, where I met absolutely wonderful people at Oasis, Pickles and Skinny Legs. Allison is the perfect host. In advance, she provided exactly the info I needed to make my stay wonderful and she was available throughout my visit. She met me at the Ferry, took me to get a few groceries and pick up my Jeep (essential) and then provided a scenic tour up the Northern coast past beautiful beaches. Her attention to the tiniest details throughout the house made this one of my favorite places ever! I will go back. There is no question. Thank you Allison for an amazing introduction to the Island!

Owner's Response: Hi Alison....one Alison to another!! Thank you so much for your review and your kind words. As the solo retreat person, you fulfilled my vision of the retreat house being the setting for a "Leave Me Alone!!" retreat, an opportunity to unplug from the intensity of stressful personal and professional lives in the incredible pristine beauty of the Virgin Islands, with the simplicity of living close to nature, interacting with birds, sleeping in open air next to a tree, without the complications of technology and interpersonal issues....just "to be", with the biggest decisions of the day being which bathing suit to wear and which beach to go to and what to order for dinner!! The only thing we missed was the massage therapist who comes to the house! I'm so glad you were here and had the opportunity to relax and rejuvenate. I hope you'll come back soon, my friend! Love, The Other Allison!!

We just returned from a week spent at this beautiful home overlooking Coral Bay and the BVI. This retreat exceeded our expectations in every way. The views are absolutely amazing. We would wake up to incredible sunrises over the east end and after feeding the bananaquits, the last day even out of our hand, we would make breakfast in the very efficiently laid out outdoor kitchen. Breakfast in this spectacular setting is among our favorite memories. We are among the sad Maho Bay refugees who needed to find a new place to stay after the famous Eco Resort's closure in May 2013 and this house fit the bill perfectly. For a similar price, this home provided far more creature comforts than the Maho Bay Camps.
We cannot recommend this home enough. If you're looking for an authentic St John experience, this is the place to stay. While we visited Cruz Bay a couple of times during our week, we found that there were plenty of Coral Bay restaurant options to meet our needs and also enjoyed meeting the very friendly locals. The popular bar Skinny Legs is just down the hill and they often have live music. Their hamburgers were great too.
The perfect host, Allison met us in Cruz Bay upon our arrival and even stopped at a local market in Cruz Bay allowing us the chance to pick up some supplies before we followed her to her home in Coral Bay. We found that having a rental jeep definitely added to our enjoyment of the island allowing us to get to the most beautiful beaches in the world, all just minutes away with a jeep. Besides, the chance to use four wheel drive and driving on the left added to the adventure.
We're already looking forward to our next visit.

Owner's Response: Thanks Tom and Mark for your kind review and for being such great guests. Your enthusiasm and appreciation of the Coral Bay Eco Retreat, of our little community of Coral Bay and St. John in general is wonderful and so authentic! You were both so fun, appreciative of nature and laid back, soaking up the sun and the vibes.....island guys for sure. It was a pleasure to hear of your adventures and experiences at the cottage and around the island. I appreciate how considerate and conscientious were were...even my tech advisers! I hope you're staying warm back there in the polar country of New York. Our temperatures here have plummeted into the 80's! You were the perfect guests...come back soon...and I hope you get many visitors to your hummingbird feeder! All the best, Allison

We expected a lot from the Coral Bay Eco Retreat but we were still surprised by the beauty and the spectacular view of this place. It was a tropical heaven with all the Bananakeets (we got to feed them from our hands), hummingbirds, frogs, cute little lizards and the choir of grasshoppers.

The house was well equipped and everything was well thought out which made our stay easy and pleasant. The electricity is limited but we were fine with that. There were lots of places for hanging out and reading a book or just for gazing at the views, and more than enough room for a couple. The house had two bedrooms but we used only the open air bedroom on the lower floor. Description at Homeaway gives a detailed and accurate description of the house.

The house is located near a hiking trail on a steep hill in Coral Bay. For the first two days we hiked from the house and then rented a jeep for the remainder of our stay. St John is a beautiful island - our favorite one of the Virgin Islands - so we strongly recommend renting a jeep for at least a couple of days so you can travel around. It also makes grocery shopping a lot easier!

Allison is a fantastic hostess! She gave us a ride from Cruz Bay and showed us around the island on the way to the house. She also helped us renting the jeep on the very busy holiday season. The booking, payments etc were all well handled. She also mailed us a pair of headphones which we forgot at the house.

We highly recommend this house and wish to come back some day!

Owner's Response: Thanks Tiina for your kind words! You two were so much fun and so perfect for the house. I'm glad to hear you got the package that I sent all the way back to Europe and I truly hope you'll return to the Retreat some day soon! Stay warm! All the best, Allison

What a beautiful, amazing place to stay.this very private cottage sits you at the top of some amazing views. In the mornings, I often sent friends and family spectacular photos of what I could see from right outside my bed. Once you get out if bed you are treated To a delightful cacophony of several bird species, an vid rant donkeys. Every morning i would make omelettes with the fuzzy wild basil growing in the garden. The outdoor shower was a great treat, and the evenings of falling asleep to a chorus of tree frogs (and the occasional scattered evening rain storm) was something that I'll not soon forget.
Locally, you have pretty muc all you need with the love city mini mart, Oasis, and pickles in Paradise. Vegetarians, take note! We had no problem even in this tiny market finding tofu, oasis posts one vegetarian meal a day and all of their sides are vegetarian, and pickles has a vegetarian meal on Thursday nights!
be sure to check out the Ram Head trail which was the best hike we went on.

Allison is a fantastic host. She has really out a lot of thought into the design and functionality of this house, and she's put a lot of attention into the details. From the gear in the kitchen tithe hand held mosquito zappers to the hammock and had picked basil leaves by the stove, to the sugar for the birds and the humming bird food, we were never short or shy of anything. The trip to the house, she escorted us and stopped at a few stops To show us around. She was attentive and informative and always accessible while respecting our privacy. She even taught us how to work our 4 wheel drive and where to engage it.

It's really hard to not write a good review on such a wonderful amazing place, but Allison brought it over the top. Thank you for everything!
Owner's Response: Hi Lisa
Thanks for the great review! It was such a pleasure to have you here and I'm so glad you loved it...and the birds. You two were such great sports with the rainy season and all....but it sure didn't slow you down! It's such a blessing to me to have my cottage embraced by wonderful people like you who truly "get it" and love being close to nature, close to the sea, all at Coral Bay Eco Retreat. I hope you've had a chance to see the little movie I put up on You Tube and that you see many hummingbirds this year at your feeder. Thanks again for enjoying the cottage, for your kind words and for now becoming a friend. "May you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend....and come back!". Hope you have fab winter holidays!
All the best,
Allison

Allison-
We can’t say enough how much we enjoyed your eco-retreat. The beauty of the surrounding and the welcome feel of the home were incredible.
Neither Johnny or I are morning people but waking up with sunrise gave a new meaning to each day. Every morning the birds were waiting for a little sugar treat and it was so much fun be able to feed them out of our hands. We set on the deck every morning enjoying coffee and tea, listening to the humming bird and bananaquits flying around, and watch the sun take its place above us. Can it get any better?!
The location of the tree-house is awesome. The place is located uphill on a winding road, close to the town, but high enough to feel in peace and provide an amazing view of the bays and surrounding hills. The road is hikeable but I would not recommend unless you are really-really determined to get some exercise. I would definitely advise renting 4WD for the whole stay and I am so happy that my boyfriend decided to rent a jeep thought I was very convinced we didn’t need one. There are so many beaches to explore and we would have probably missed most of them as there are no other good ways to get around except for hiking. Cruz Bay seems to have a good taxi service but I haven’t seen too many taxis come to Coral Bay. Same goes for the buses, you would probably spend more time waiting for one than relaxing on a beach. We rented a jeep from Amalia car rental and they picked us up at the airport. You can always rent a car on St Johns.
The local grocery stores in Coral Bay have pretty much everything and Cruz Bay is only 15-20 min drive if you are looking for something more specific. Cruz Bay has better choices as far as meats and fish (thought I was very surprised to see that fish is cheaper in the states). If you don’t feel like cooking every day, check out Oasis in Coral Bay. The food is great and you can take it to go, oh, and drinks only $3-4. The menu changes daily but they post their menu on Facebook every morning so you can check it out before you go down there. https://www.facebook.com/#!/coralbayoasis
e loved that the house was built with preserving environment in mind. The outdoor shower, the rainwater “dishwasher”, the solar powered lights, everything was remarkable and I wish there were more people on this earth that had the same attitude toward the environment as Allison does.
Thank you for everything Allison, you have created an amazing piece of heaven and we cannot wait to come back aga
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words and for taking the time to share your thoughts and insights with others. You are the best guests!!! Now friends...."May you arrive as guests and leave as friends!". I'm so glad that you were a great match for the cottage and loved it (and the birds). Folks with good vibes like you and Johnny bring so much to the house, the love fills it and surrounds it.....and us! I hope you have a beautiful holiday and come back soon!
All the best, Allison

The Coral Bay Eco Retreat is located in Coral Bay, St. John 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.
