Overview

Coral Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

La Bella Villa is a unique, hand-crafted home made of island stone and masonry. It has a gorgeous view of Coral Bay and of beautiful Bordeaux Mountain. The house itself has all the character and warmth of a traditional Caribbean home, yet it is modern, well equipped, clean, and comfortable. Romantics will adore this picturesque and idyllic home and marvel at the architectural touches.

The house faces Coral Bay: its 12 by 40 foot long covered porch lures you into sitting outside to read, watch the view, talk and simply enjoy comfortable outside living. Each room has a beautiful view and each bedroom is individually appointed with island art and touches. And you’ll love the magnificent mahogany shutters and doors (all fully screened, of course) all around the house.

Behind a Caribbean stone wall and next to the villa, La Bella Villa’s pool deck provides the perfect place for enjoying St. John’s sun and the views of Coral Bay and Bordeaux Mountain. The fresh water outdoor pool has ready access to a shower from the deck area as well as an entrance to the kitchen. With lounge chairs, a table and umbrella for reading by the pool, beach towels, and a nearby gas grill, you have all the comforts for an afternoon in the sun. We also provide beach chairs and a cooler for beach outings.

Opening from the pool deck, the kitchen is a NEFF custom kitchen featuring a granite sink and concrete counters. It is modern and fully equipped.

The living room is furnished with traditional Caribbean furniture. With vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans, tiled floors and Caribbean art, it has a relaxing and inviting interior. For your entertainment, a British Colonial-style armoire houses the entertainment center, including a nice collection of movies, CDs, and games for guests’ pleasure.

The beautiful mahogany doors open to the 500 square foot deck with a fabulous view of Coral Bay. The porch has a wooden table which seats 6 for relaxed, al fresco dining. A comfy sofa and wicker rocking chairs make the porch an outdoor living room, cooled by breezes from Coral Bay and by ceiling fans.

La Bella Villa sleeps 4 comfortably in its two bedrooms, and has a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room for up to 2 more. The master bedroom features a romantic, British Colonial king-sized four-poster bed with luxurious linens, sconce lights above the bed, mahogany closets, a floor mirror, ceiling fans for a comfortable breeze, and views through jalousied/screened doors onto the porch and to Coral Bay itself. The master bath has a full, island style, walk-in tiled shower, footed sink, and comfortable privacy.

The second bedroom features a queen-sized bed as well as palm tree lamps on mahogany night stands. Overlooking the pool and with windows on three sides, this charming bedroom also features luxurious linens, Caribbean art, a ceiling fan for a cool breeze, and mahogany doors and window shutters.

After a day in the pool or at the beach, it is a short drive to one of the many fine or fun restaurants for which St. John is well known, including the famous Skinny Legs, Sweet Plantains, Aqua Bistro, Shipwreck Landing and others right in Coral Bay. A 20-minute ride takes you to Cruz Bay which features numerous other great restaurants and more shopping.

Perhaps best of all is the great access to the popular, beautiful North Shore beaches and the opportunity to explore South Shore and East End beaches, which are less frequented.

A variety of birds frequent the immediate area which, depending upon the season, may include the largest hummingbirds you have ever seen, even parrots, and our popular native bird, the little but gorgeous bananaquit. Coral Bay, which is a little more funky and laid back than the Cruz Bay area of St. John, is also known for the island donkeys and goats that wander the streets and occasionally come near the villa. Our very own iguana family lives in the trees off the decks. And the night sounds of the tree frogs will lull you into a deep restful sleep.

Couples and families – adventurers, romantics, or those wanting just to relax -- will adore this picturesque and idyllic villa. We have a 5-day minimum stay.

About Sally or Franz Jaggar

Sitting at Sun Dog Cafe in Mongoose Junction, just enjoying St. John.

Sally or Franz Jaggar purchased this house in 2004

Why Sally or Franz Jaggar chose Coral Bay

St. John is our dream destination. Despite California roots, we'll never move there because the water is cold and the ocean is...gray! When we saw this villa, we fell in love with it! And have never wavered in our delight with Bella Villa -- or St. John -- since!

What makes this house unique

La Bella Villa is heaven in the Caribbean. AND it has a fabulous outdoor shower complete with a fossilized fish. Who could ask for more?

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful time in St. John. LaBella Villa is absolutely beautiful and the perfect place for us to stay. We were only sidelined one day from rain, and boy did it rain. 4 1/2" of rain. It definitely refilled your cisterns! We explored the island daily and snorkeled in a different bay every day. The underwater world there is so beautiful. It was by far the best snorkeling I have ever done. So glad we chose 10 days although next time it will be two weeks.....and there will be a next time. We all just loved St. John and your wonderful villa. Thank you again for sharing and the pleasure of staying there.

Incredible Stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our four children (ages 14, 10, 7, and 3 at the time) came to stay for 9 days in July 2013. It was incredible. Sally was incredibly helpful at helping us make the plans and giving us advice on what we needed to bring (food is expensive on the island and she helped us out with what items would be useful) and what to do. The house is well kept and beautiful. The island is incredible. The beaches and snorkeling are out of this world. We loved the outdoor shower and the incredible views. The pool was very nice. The porches are wonderful and we ate out there much of the time. We hope to return in Spring or Summer of 2015.

Beautiful views, perfect for families

  • 5 of 5
It has been almost a year since we left La Bella Villa and St. John and we still talk about how much we enjoyed our time there. The home was the absolutely perfect base for us and our 1.5 year old child. It was a short drive to all of the good beaches and to quiet Coral Bay. The home itself was very well suited for small, mobile children (high railings on the porch, pool separated from main deck and living area, large second bedroom, etc.). Sally was very helpful providing us with information before our arrival and Nancy took care of all of our needs during our stay. This was the perfect vacation to really unwind.

We can't wait to return with both kids in 2015!

Beautifully Appointed, Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5
La Bella Villa is a treasure tucked away in a hill overlooking Coral Bay. We stayed there several nights, and loved the privacy and beauty of the place. It features amazing stonework, high ceilings, modern kitchen, and stunning views of the island's green hills and bay. Wooden shutters are perfect for keeping the island breezes circulating inside. The outdoor shower was also a real treat, and we loved waking up to the sounds of doves cooing. A fabulous romantic getaway!

Love at first sight!!

  • 5 of 5
La Bella Villa was the perfect spot for our family of 4 to call home during our week on St. John. It is a charming stone house with amazing Caribbean character. Palms swaying, a spacious terra cotta veranda, teak doors and shutters, a huge relaxing pool deck, and all the modern comforts and amenities! The views really took our breath away - any time of day! You look right out to the center of Coral Bay which is just enchanting. It took us not more than 10 min. to get to the first of the Northshore beaches - easy drive and of course, just a couple of minutes to all Coral Bay restaurants/shops. The owners and property manager were lovely to deal with....the house was simply paradise!

Owner's Response: La Bella Villa seems to be especially well suited to families with children, honeymooners who want a special place with extra privacy, and couples. We love sharing its Caribbean features with those who already love St. John or who are first time visitors!

Fantastic week

  • 5 of 5
We shared La Bella Villa with another couple for a fantastic week in November. Loved the laid back vibe of Coral Bay, where we chartered a boat to snorkel the BVI's and hang out at the Soggy Dollar.

The main deck at La Bella Villa was a great place to spend mornings reading. The side deck and pool were our end-of-the-day hang out. We LOVED the out door stone and tile shower! Nice breezes kept out bedroom pleasant at night.

The house was well provisioned and in great shape. Can't wait to return!

La Bella Villa - How soon can we go back!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a week at La Bella Villa on our honeymoon. From start to finish, the trip was relaxing and care free! Nancy (the property manager for the house) and her husband met us on the dock in Cruz Bay. They took us to get our rental jeep and waited while we stocked up at the grocery store. We felt welcome and at ease from the moment she met us! The house is situated a short drive from Coral Bay - not too far from activity but just the right amount of privacy. The porch overlooking the bay got a lot of use whether reading, taking a quick nap or enjoying an afternoon drink. And what a view! Many times did we find ourselves gazing out at the water and taking it all in. The accommodations are fantastic! We particularly both loved the outdoor shower. Proximity to the beaches could not be easier and we had great time in Coral Bay. Shipwreak Landing and Donkey Diner are two of the best restaurants on the island and they are minutes from La Bella Villa's front door! We were just there two weeks ago and can't wait to go back!!

La Bella Villa is just off Centerline Road in a little neighborhood of 7 houses, most of which are inhabited by year-round residents. Bella Villa is itself up a slight hill so it has an unobstructed view both of magnificent Coral Bay and also, toward the west, of Bordeaux Mountain. This placement accounts for the privacy, nearly constant breezes, magnificent views and easy access to Coral Bay, which is less than a mile further down the road. Watching the sun and shadows on Coral Bay and the changing shadows on Bordeaux gives guests a great sense of peace and perspective. The views are to die for!

La Bella Villa is about 2 minutes from Skinny Legs!
