BEACHFRONT SUITE AT QUIET FRIIS BAY

Johns Folly House Rental Photos and Description

Awaken at Pelican Beach to amazing sunrises here on the peaceful Coral Bay side of St. John USVI. Pelican Beach, one of the few St. John vacation rentals available directly on the beach, features fabulous outside living spaces with breathtaking views, cool evening breezes and almost daily visits from soaring, diving pelicans. At this unique, waterfront St. John accommodation, you will be lulled into peaceful bliss by the sound of the surf, both day and night.

Spend a lazy afternoon under the Seagrape tree canopy on our deck directly on a beautiful pebble and sand beach. Gazing out on the clear blue and aqua tranquil waters, don't be surprised to actually see a fish swimming by or to be dazzled by the air acrobatics of a leaping eagle ray. The semi private beach is available within footsteps from the grounds with some of the best snorkeling on the island because it is seldom disturbed. You never know what to expect from the amazing sea life.

Relax in our round gazebo, with its comfortable large furniture, and absorb the panoramic views from Tortola (BVI), East End (St. John), Flannigan Island (US) and Norman Island (BVI). Sun bathe during the day or dine in the evening shade on our large deck, just above the Seagrape trees.

Pelican Beach is a large waterfront home with a separate vacation rental unit. Owners are on premises in the upstairs section of the home. Captain J can arrange to take you out snorkeling to remote St. John destinations on Serena Sea, a 1959 Gilligan's Island type boat. If island hopping and visiting the British Virgin Islands is desired, we can take you on our Glacier Bay powerboat, Knot E Buoys. Private yoga classes and massages can be provided on the premises.

The newly remodel indoor living space provides two bedrooms with comfortable queen beds, fully equipped kitchen with full size appliances and a ceramic tiled bath with laundry facilities. The owner's sister is an artist, so unique touches can be found throughout. The furnishing and artwork reflect the owner's significant travels throughout the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.

Wind down after a day of snorkeling and swimming in the screened in living room with amazing views and evening breezes. To finish off that busy day of vacationing, relax in your bedroom to watch a movie or favorite TV show. Each bedroom has its own cable TV with over 100 channels.

The landscaped grounds include a variety of palm trees, flowering plants to attract humming birds and many species of cactus and succulents.

Miss Lucy's restaurant is a very short walk for evening dining, Sunday Jazz Brunch or a casual lunch from this one of a kind vacation rental on St. John, USVI.

In addition to the North Shore beaches, many other beaches such as Salt Pond Beach and remote Lameshur Bay are a short drive away.

Coral Bay, with a variety of restaurants and shopping, is a 7 - 10 minute drive.

Pelican Beach, described by many as paradise found, far away from the stress of everyday living.

About Nancy Stromp & Jason Hayman

We live on premises in the upstairs section of the home.

We started vacationing in St. John about ten years ago. We often dreamed about a life away from our hectic lives in New Jersey. We wanted a more peaceful and tranquil life. So in 2009, we decided to take the plunge and we purchased Pelican Beach on Friis Bay.

Nancy is living her dream. She left her corporate financial executive life and is semi-retired. She is happy to no longer have a desk job. She is currently the yoga director at Concordia Eco-Resorts. She has been practicing yoga for almost 20 years and is part of the St. John yoga teacher group, Do Yoga St. John.

Jason is living a life above and beyond his expectations. Jason has recently become a commercial boat captain and is nicknamed “Captain J”. Please visit pelicanbeachexcursions.com for information about charters for a fun day trip around St. John or to the British Virgin Islands. In addition, he is working on his instructors level certification for scuba diving.

Nancy Stromp & Jason Hayman purchased this house in 2009

Lovely Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We found Pelican House online and wondered if it could be as wonderful as it looked online. We telephoned with endless questions so warmly and willingly answered by Nancy & Jason. That certainly invoked confidence. We were well instructed what to expect upon arrival to ST Thomas, how to ferry to ST John & where to meet them after we picked up our jeep. How nice to make that journey knowing that after we met, we would be escorted to the house to ensure we would find the home easily. So, how did we feel upon viewing this location that we hoped would be good? IT SURPASSED OUR EXPECTATIONS!!! We were promptly given the tour of our space and amenities. Few places are as good as advertised but how wonderful to see our spectacular view, and numerous spaces available to fit the mood. There is an amazing gazebo with comfortable furniture that is a space I can still close my eyes and imagine myself at. A separate outdoor deck for lounging, dining & grilling are at your disposal. Or simply walk down the steps to your private beach with chairs, kayaks, life vets. You can swim, snorkel, kayak or do nothing. The sea grape trees give shade to such a lovely spot. At the house there is also a screened living/dining space that was so comfortable. Two bedrooms but it was just my husband and myself so we chose the bedroom facing the water, standing up each day to the glory of our view and sleeping to the sounds of the waves. The kitchen is equipped with all you need but if you need something just ask. Soda, water and a bottle of rum was a nice gift to get us started on our vacation! Noodles to swim with, extra suntan lotion, beach towels, folding beach chairs to take around the island all there for your use. We covered the island with our jeep and went to so many of the beautiful beaches each with different attributes and snorkel opportunities. Saw barracuda, puffer, tarpon, mutton snapper, squid, and all the colorful fish you can imagine. Market nearby for emergency but better options/prices in Coral Bay. Went to Annaberg Sugar Plantation Ruins. Interesting and loved the view too. Saw mongoose, deer, iguana. We also took advantage of Jason's services as a boat captain. He met with us and arranged a trip tailored to us. I am extremely sensitive to motion so only did part of the trip but got to see sea stars & sea cucumbers. My husband spent a full day at sea, stops & BVI. He had a blast! Thx Jason & Nancy! Enough? GO! It's private, quiet & beautiful!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
Pelican Beach is just as described by the owners and so much more. This is a rare property on the water with owners who go above and beyond. The love and attention that they have put into, and are continuing to put into, Pelican Beach is obvious. They take great pride in Pelican Beach and were always available for any questions we might have had. The provisions for their guests in terms of the fully equipped kitchen, the beds, furniture, etc. were exceptional. The outdoor space at Pelican Beach is amazing. There are so many areas in which to take it all in. My favorite spot was the water deck in the morning with my coffee watching the sunrise. Nancy and Jason also provide (at no extra charge) a kayak, paddle board, beach chairs, beach towels, etc.. Getting to Coral Bay is an adventure in itself, but so worth it! We would return to Pelican Beach and hope to in the future!

  • 5 of 5
This home was the perfect vacation spot for our family of 4. A secluded beach front with great snorkeling, lots of places to sit and relax outside, close to many restaurants and other beautiful beaches. A favorite memory was falling asleep at night hearing the waves and feeling the breeze off the water. It was one of our best vacations ever. We looked at many places on the VRBO site and I'm so thankful I picked Pelican Bay.

perfect setting for de-stressing!

  • 5 of 5
This is our 2nd year back at Pelican Beach. The location is perfect. There's nothing better than relaxing with your morning coffee or evening libation overlooking the east end of St. John and the BVI just across the water. Miss Lucy's beachfront restaurant is a 2 minute beach walk from the house; Coral Bay is 5 minutes by car.

Beautiful and Peaceful Place to Stay on St. John

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just returned from St. John and the best vacation in our 25 years of marriage. We traveled with two friends (also celebrating their 25th anniversary), and we had an amazingly good time. Nancy and Jason’s rental suite was perfect for us. They are great hosts, and we really loved getting to know them and hearing about their experiences in moving to St. John and renovating their unique home. They were also there for us with great advice about the island, yet we felt like we had total privacy. The room layout is great, with all the space we needed. We loved the screened porch which runs the full width of the suite, with nice breezes and the sounds of the beach. The gazebo was awesome too – very comfortable, and with a priceless view.

They have provided a lot of extras with the rental suite such as sunblock, insect repellent, and a great selection of chilled soft drinks. They also have beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, paper plates, a Trail Bandit hiking trail map of the island, information on charters and restaurants, etc. The WiFi worked great, and having a telephone (with free long distance) was convenient.

We were incredibly satisfied by Pelican Beach, and would never look for another place to stay when we return to St. John. You can hear the waves from inside your suite, and take nice walks along the beach whenever you like. We snorkeled every day on various beaches, and some of the best snorkeling we did was right there on the beach in Friis Bay. For Sunday brunch at Miss Lucy’s, we took a one minute walk down the beach. The home faces due east, and the sunrises over East End and the British Virgin Islands were amazing.

We explored the whole island during our week in St. John, and have no doubt that staying on the Coral Bay side was the right thing for us to do. There is a really cool collection of restaurants, from the very nice and casual Miss Lucy’s, Aqua Bistro, Shipwreck Landing and Café Concordia to the awesome and super-casual Tourist Trap (three visits there), Ekaete Pink Corner and Vie’s Snack Shack. There is also a nice grocery store called Calabash Market. Coral Bay was very peaceful, and we felt like we were out in the country. Great beaches and hiking (Ram’s Head was my favorite) on the south and east side of the island too.

We are already dreaming and planning for a return trip. St. John is a national treasure, and I pray that it will be protected and conserved just the way it is now.

Best Vacation of our Lives!

  • 5 of 5
Wow......It was by far the most beautiful trip we have ever been on. Jason and Nancy made us feel like it was our own Villa. Beautiful views, great pelican entertainment and awesome accommodations. I started checking on air fair the minute we got back for next year! Everything in the villa was high end. We bought groceries for the week (very expensive so be ready) and cooked most of our meals there. The beaches on St. John are quiet, calm, blue and beautiful. Very family friendly. The locals on the Island really are fun to engage with and the rum drinks are delicious. (Pain Killer was my favorite). I wasn't prepared for "open air" living....I didn't know it meant no A/C. Normal for St. John. I got used to it by the first evening. I put a damp cloth on the back of my neck and slept like a baby. We went in Sept which next time we plan to go in April. Sept most of the restaurants and shops are closed for the month so it is really quiet. If you want an experience that isn't cookie cutter and you like adventure this is the place to be! A great change from your all-inclusive resort vacations. This one has loads more personality. We loved it!
