Welcome to the Island Harmony community. David and I are so pleased to have you and will make every effort to ensure your stay with us is enjoyable. We are also most happy to provide you with all the peace and privacy you might require.

By way of a very brief introduction, I have been an islander since I was 7 years old. My family arrived by freighter in 1959 and proceeded to build a family run business consisting of a West Indian style guest house and restaurant overlooking the sea on St Croix. Every child’s dream come true, my childhood friends were monkeys, talking birds, horses, and all the wonders that the sea affords, coupled with a fresh array of new faces visiting from all around the world every week. What a privilege and adventure!

In 1984, David who had been bare boating in the Caribbean for many years, came home from a vacation and put a sign in his front yard that said simply ‘EVERYTHING FOR SALE” and some short time later, he boarded a plane to St John with his wife, 2 young children and 20 duffel bags of belongings to start his island adventure living aboard a Morgan 42 sail boat in Coral Bay Harbor. He proceeded to build a successful building contractors business for the next 26 years and many of the lovely homes and rental Villas on the island are his handiwork. Now nearing retirement, he is focusing on our long and short term rental homes and remodeling jobs.

Sharon & David

Sharon purchased this apartment in 1994

David and I designed and built this property together 1994. If I can sum up the dream, which I named Island Harmony many years before it became a reality, it was to design, and build a harmonious, beautiful environment that affords peace and tranquility for all its occupants. You are most welcome to join us! We look forward to meeting you and sharing this special island paradise.

WHY CORAL BAY????

Coral Bay is on the “quiet side” of the island. We still have donkeys, goats, chickens, and iguanas roaming our streets. Our sleepy little village is populated with some of the friendliest locals you will find on St John. Sit at the bar and make new friends easily.

Another really great feature of this side of the island is that we face the British Virgin Islands, argueably some of the best sailing in the world. The views are perpetually dotted with outlying islands and white sails with the occasional cruise ship meandering by.

We are a short 10 - 15 minute drive from the fabulous and pristine North Shore Beaches and have a wonderful assortment of shops bars and restaurants. All very relaxed and tropical.

This is simply as close as I, Sharon, could get to my childhood on the island of St Croix as it was in 1959.

GREAT WEEK - COMFORTABLE AND PRIVATE

We had a great week at Harmony by the Pool.  Samantha was so helpful and friendly.   Whenever we needed something or had any questions she was right there for us.   The house was very comfortable and private.  Exploring the island was a lot of fun.  We hit a different beach every day.  They all have their special charms. The view from Concordia and the food were excellent. You don't need an alarm clock on this island.  First thing I'm going to do when I get home is get a couple of roosters that crow so I can pretend I'm still on St. John. Stay to the left.

AMAZING 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY AT HARMONY

Thank you to Samantha for everything – We had an amazing five year anniversary trip and Harmony by the Pool was the perfect place to stay. A few highlights – Aqua Bistro on Friday night for Ponzu tuna, Skinny Legs for a great burger and nice St John merchandise, day trip to Jost van Dyke, half day snorkel sail on Kekoa, nice dinner at Asolare, Salt Pond bay for a quiet beach followed by lobster rolls at the tourist trap. Thanks for an unforgettable five days!

A great week at Harmony by the Pool

During our past trips to St. John we stayed at full private villas as we were with other couples. I was not sure what to expect by staying in an apartment. We ended up being thoroughly delighted with our stay.

The pictures are very good at representing what you get. We had a king bedroom which had a lot of storage for clothes and supplies and an excellent ceiling fan. The kitchen was small but had all the needed appliances and was perfect for our needs. We did breakfast at home each day and packed lunches but went out most nights, so we did not use all the available utensils. The living room was comfortable and also has a ceiling fan. The TV is there but we did not even turn it on. When we're on St. John we really like to keep the rest of the world out! The best thing was a huge covered wrap around deck with a hammock, two chairs and a table with 4 chairs. We spent most of our time here. The breezes at this property were fantastic. We were not sure how we would feel with no A/C, but we never needed it. The deck gave us a great view and the pool deck an even better one.

The pool area was also delightful for sitting and reading or just view gazing. You could have both sun and shade. The water in the pool was chilly, but I believe that is often the case with villas up in the hills. I still took a few dips and enjoyed the ambiance. There were lounge chairs there also.

Sharon was extremely helpful with booking and arranging our rental car and efficient getting all the paperwork done by email. Samantha and Erik were managing the property while we were there and also stay in the unit above us. They were never intrusive, but were right there if we had a question or problem. The deck is totally private and we were hardly aware that there were other people around. They also run Sam and Jack's deli and will deliver your dinner right to the villa. We took advantage of this one evening and it was great to have that service. And the food was great, too! Try the Tiramisu.

The only reason I did not give this the full 5 stars is because the road up and onto the property was very challenging. You must have 4WD and some high clearance. We had a jeep and managed fine. It is definitely doable, but renters need to be prepared.

We would definitely go back to this property if we are traveling alone.

Enjoyed Harmony by the Pool Stay

After staying in Cruz Bay area of St John for our annual vacations over the last 10+ years (Westin Hotel & other VRBO locations), we decided it was time for a stay in Coral Bay. Well let me tell you, we enjoyed our stay at Harmony By The Pool. We were very happy with the move to the quiet side of the island. We ordered home cooked style meals & deserts from Jack & Sams deli in town which are delivered directly to our doorstep that night...location, location, location! Talk about service. The views from the house are great (a full moon glittered over Coral Bay for several nights) and the constant Trade Winds keep things nice and cool at night. Can't wait for the next trip (we missed 3 snow storms this year!) so anyone else interested in staying better book early. Our wonderful stay was a great bang for the buck too!

WILL DREAM OF THE VIEW AFTER WE HAVE GONE!

We have been here for 6+ days. And it has been wonderful celebrating my husbands 60th birthday in such an awesome setting. Been to many Caribbean islands; this is the most beautiful! Thanks for such a lovely place to stay. The view is fantastic! I will dream of this view after we have gone. My husband says the road is “fun”! Thanks so much for allowing us to experience paradise with a view.

More: Samantha and Sharon have been awesome, very accommodating and beyond what is expected. We loved the Stormy Petrol BVI tour – awesome! We loved Cinnamon Bay. All the beaches were fabulous! Every place we went was fabulous! We hope to be back again some day!
