About Sharon

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

Why Sharon chose Coral Bay

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Thank you so much Sharon, Samantha & Erik for  providing us with a comfortable place to stay here on St. John! We loved every minute of our vacation. We enjoy swimming and snorkeling on the Cinnamon Bay beach and Trunk beach. Go early in the morning and you will have the whole beach to yourself. Go to Aqua Bistro on Friday night for their tuna special and some live music. Make sure to buy delicious food at Sam & Jack’s Deli – we especially loved the salads. We had a great time and we are definitely planning our next vacation in paradise!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
This is an absolutely amazing place to stay. It's extremely quiet and has an incredible view of Coral Bay. My girlfriend and I stayed here for several days and it was so great we're already planning to come back next year and stay here. The location is close to all of the best beaches and close to a bunch of great places to eat just down the hill. You MUST rent a car if you stay here to get around as it's up a very very steep hill from Coral Bay and it's impossible to get beach to beach by taxi. Sam, who let me onto the property is extremely friendly and the pool is a great feature as well. This location is far from any resorts and you want me bothered by large crowds if you like to really get away. I'd recommend this property to anyone.

10 Days in Paradise

Great stay, Samantha and Erik took care of us well. We enjoyed our stay on St. John -- even the rain the first day was enjoyable looking out over the valley below -- nice view. Potter and Madison (the dogs) were our greeters every day and we loved it.

Phenomenal Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5
Celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with a trip to St. John. “Big” trips like this aren’t in our budget very often so we really did a lot of research when planning where to stay and what to do. Picked St. John because of the unspoiled beaches and lots and National Park land. Picked Harmony by the Pool because it looked great online and seemed like an excellent value. Extremely happy with both decisions.

Harmony by the Pool was just great! It is on the Coral Bay side of the island. If you want quiet relaxation, romance, a base for adventures, and local flavor, this is where you want to be. View from the pool and huge deck is incredible. Sharon (owner) made the booking process a breeze and sent a ton of great information to help make our trip a success. Sam and Eric (caretakers) were extremely friendly and helpful.

Recommendations:
- Wear lots of bug spray and sun screen
- Eat at Aqua Bistro and Sam and Jack’s Deli
- Burger and drinks at Skinny Legs
- Boom Boom and pulled pork at the Tourist Trap
- Go to Trunk Bay before 7:30 a.m. You’ll avoid the fee and maybe have the beach to yourselves like we did
- Kayak and snorkel on Hidden Reef Eco-Tours
- Do the sunset cruise on SailPepper
- Take a day trip to St. Thomas and ride horses on the beach with Golden Age Ranch
- If you only do one hike, make it Ram Head
- If you’re Catholic, don’t skip Mass; loved the hymns on steel drum and tambourine at Our Lady of Mount Carmel

One week in paradise

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to St. John and we just fell in love with the island and the place where we were staying. Harmony by the Pool is a private and very quite property with an amazing view of Coral Bay from the wrap around deck – everything we needed to relax and get away from our hectic lives back home. The apartment is a very clean 1 bedroom with a well equipped kitchen in case you want to cook your own meals and an incredibly comfortable king bed.
Sharon was extremely helpful with answering all our questions and booking our rental car.
On the day we arrived, Samantha met us in front of the Aqua Bistro and showed us the way to the property.
We got up early in the morning and headed out to explore north shore beaches and hiking trails just a short drive away. Our entire stay was filled with peace and tranquility at this amazing place.
I just want to mention that the road onto the property was quite challenging like most roads on St. John and you definitely need a 4WD. Thank you, Sharon for recommending to rent a jeep!

Scenic Retreat...

  • 5 of 5
Our one week stay at HBTP was too short, another week would have been great. The property is well represented by the photos. Every morning you are greeted by a beautiful sunrise over Coral Bay, enjoy them all, they vary so much from day to day. We enjoyed the beautiful beaches, friendly people
and relaxing evenings sipping beverages by the pool. Your hosts are wonderful and available if needed. Food delivery is rare for most properties, and is certainly an added bonus for those late returns from the beach. The kitchen is well stocked and extra care has been taken to provide some necessary items. There are two markets within a few minutes drive for small things you may have forgotten in Cruz Bay. Please try the local restaurants in the area, you won't be disappointed. We will not hesitate to stay in this lovely apartment again. We highly recommend this property to anyone seeking a peaceful vacation in paradise. Upon booking we received a package full of St. John information. Their attention to detail can't be beat. Thank you Sam, Sharon and Erik for making our first visit to St. John a memorable one. Hope to see you in 2015. Dani & Joel.
