CASA YAYA: BREATHTAKING VIEWS FROM THIS ST JOHN VILLA. ROMANCE ABOUNDS!

Coral Bay House Rental Photos and Description

2 BR/2 BA, 3rd BR Loft, Stunning View of Coral Bay and Beyond

Look no further than Casa YaYa for your perfect St. John retreat. The moment you enter, the view will take your breath away. Casa YaYa boasts one of the prettiest views on the island. Located on the western hillside overlooking beautiful Coral Bay, we are located in a quiet area with wonderful breezes and full sun until mid to late afternoon. If privacy is what you desire, this is the villa for you.

If you ever decide to come inside, the Caribbean decor and comfort will have you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. This one level villa (with 2nd story loft) is unique for its large 10 foot openings along the entire east side allowing beautiful sunshine and cooling breezes to invade the villa. The view from each room is unparalleled. It boasts a large great room and kitchen. Two bedrooms are located on opposite sides of the great room for maximum privacy. Each air conditioned bedroom features a king sized bed and affords the same spectacular view as the great room. Both bathrooms have outdoor showers that are highly desired in this tropical climate. The 2nd story loft features a queen sized bed and is accessed by a traditional style loft ladder.

Enjoy the privacy that this villa has to offer while lounging in the newly constructed 20x12x5 pool. Sunbathe on the newly expanded sun deck. Unwind in one of the hammock swings. All of this is possible as you take in the view of Coral Bay, Tortola and the Sir Francis Drake Passage to Virgin Gorda. And don't forget to watch the sunrise and moonrise, which are visible from every room in the house.

Located in Coral Bay, where many of the locals choose to live, we are in close proximity to comfortable island dining whether you are looking for the very casual to more upscale. Situated between the more quiet eastern beaches and the world famous north shore beaches, Casa YaYa is only minutes from each. Hiking trails abound and are also only minutes away. A night out in Cruz Bay, dining and shopping, is just a short (but curvy) 20-30 minute drive on island roads where speeds are rarely over 20 miles per hour. The island is 2/3 National Park land and therefore protected from over development.

Casa YaYa will not disappoint and will leave you dreaming of your return!

******We are excited to announce that Casa YaYa was featured in the October 11-13,2013 weekend edition of USA TODAY, both online and in print! Look for it!

We are landlocked midwesterners who have fallen in love with St John and the 'island life.' We love for others to discover the true beauty of St. John and believe that Casa YaYa is the perfect place for this to occur.

Cindy Humphreys purchased this house in 2012

From the moment we stepped through the door, we were mesmerized by 'the view.' We looked at several properties and this is the only one that left us eager to return! We are confident that the comfortable surrounds afforded here will complement the scenic beauty of Casa YaYa.

CASA YAYA EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
When we walked into the villa for the first time we (husband, 2 kids: ages 12 & 14, and I) were exclaiming how beautiful the inside of the villa was and then we walked out to the deck and were blown away with the view of Coral Bay and beyond. The bedrooms are very spacious with great shelving and closet for all your belongings. Coming from MN, we enjoyed having air conditioning in the bedrooms. We actually enjoyed the outdoor showers too - very private and refreshing after a hot day at the beach. The kitchen is well stocked and we grilled two nights and enjoyed romantic dining (at least for my husband and I) on the deck table. We ate after the sun had set so the track lighting outside was really nice and not a single bug bite just a few shy geckos to accompany us! The kids had a great time in the well kept pool. The main room is beautiful too. The huge sliding screen doors and ceiling fans cooled the room nicely in the mornings and evenings. We were gone beach exploring during the day. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation and want to soak in the amazing views of Coral Bay then this is the villa for you. This was our first visit to St. John. We rented a car and explored a lot of the island. We were very happy we didn't stay on the Cruz Bay side. Coral Bay is more laid back with incredibly friendly people. The woman who runs Ekaete Pink Corner was super nice. We think she makes the best Conch Fritters on the island. The kids enjoyed her smoothies and ice cream too. The people and food at the Oasis restaurant were fantastic too. We wished we had brought more cash on this trip - that is definitely what we would do differently on our next visit. Casa YaYa is in a perfect location. It is nice to be higher up so you don't hear the restaurant noise, there was more of a breeze, and the road leading to the villa was a lot better than others we saw. The road is steep to the villa but we became quite adept at driving it towards the end. You are on an adventure after all! When we return to St. John, hopefully soon, we will definitely stay at Casa YaYa again if it's available. The villa is gorgeous (the pictures don't do it justice - hard to believe but true), comfortable, perfect location, and well managed! We couldn't ask for a better place to enjoy St. John from.

BEAUTIFUL VILLA WITH EXTRAORDINARY VIEW

  • 5 of 5
Casa YaYa is a unique villa and beautifully appointed. The view overlooking Coral Bay and beyond to the BVI will stop you in your tracks! You'll never tire of taking in the ever-changing sun and shadows over the layers of islands surrounded by turquoise sea. It's like being on a "stage." Sunrises are majestic! The villa is larger than the photos depict - lovely comfortable living room and a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need if you wish to prepare meals. Both bathrooms are large with plenty of counter space and HUGE open-air showers - very cool! The island-style carved bedroom furniture is gorgeous and complimented by high-end linens and spreads. Ample closet space for hanging clothes, and there are these fantastic "cubby holes" in the closets for more storage - better than drawers! I wish we had these at home! The loft would be perfect for kids or teens. Casa YaYa is unique in that it has a bit of a Hacienda feel overlooking a spectacular Caribbean view - could it get any better? The extremely large new deck is awesome and the pool is crystal clear and inviting. We planned a couple of stay-in villa/pool days as well as beach mornings, hikes and a kayak trip to Honeymoon Beach and Henley Cay. You'll want some "no-rush-lazy" villa days - just so you can completely unwind, soak up the sun, swim in the new pool and watch the color changes in "The View!" The cushions for the loungers and chairs are luxurious and the dining set is large and very upscale. We really enjoyed relaxing in the hammock swing chairs, too. This is our 3rd trip to St. John, but first time staying in Coral Bay. We love, love, love Coral Bay! Easy to get around and very close to restaurants. The look of the casual restaurants may surprise you, but no worries - they serve up some of the most delicious food we've had and the staff is so friendly. If you have the time, make sure to include a trip to the BVI. Plenty of group excursions to choose from and some nice "private" options (there are choices that won't break the bank!) that will customize your trip to anywhere you want to go, unlike the crowded boats that carry 30 people and only go to the touristy places. Cindy was a dream to work with and really cares that everything is in order for your stay. Thank you for your quick responses and help in planning our trip from start to finish. Mary, our greeter, and Tammy, our island contact, were both wonderful. Casa YaYa - FABULOUS!

Casa YaYa has a bit of a Hacienda feel overlooking a spectacular Caribbean view - could it get any better?

The newly renovated deck is awesome and the pool is crystal clear and inviting. We planned for a couple of stay-in villa/pool days, as well as beach mornings, hikes and a kayak trip (through Arawak). You'll want some villa days - just so you can completely unwind, soak up the sun, swim in the new pool and watch the color changes in "The View"!

This is our 3rd trip to St. John, but first time staying in Coral Bay. We love, love, love Coral Bay! Easy to get around and very close to restaurants. We liked Pickles, Skinny Legs, The Tourist Trap (don't let the exterior scare you - delicious food) and Aqua Bistro (went twice - once sit-down dinner, once appetizer spread and drinks at bar). In Cruz Bay, don't miss Tuesday Lobster Night at Morgan's Mango, next to Mongoose Junction (best shopping).

For the best "private" trip to the BVI, try Palm Tree Charters. Owner John Brandi will customize your trip to anywhere you want to go/8 hrs. For private parties of 1-6, $595 plus gas (about $100). We've taken 2 trips with him and stopped at Waterlemon Cay, Norman Island (great snorkeling at the Caves and Indians), Sandy Spit, Peter Island, Jost Van Dyke (Foxy's Taboo - amazing food/cute shop), Nice to have a boat to yourself to visit secret secluded spots, without the crowded boats that carry 30 people that only go to the touristy places.

Cindy - thanks so much for your quick responses and help in planning our trip from start to finish. Casa YaYa - FABULOUS!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that you had such a fantastic time at Casa YaYa! We want our guests to love it as much as we do and it sounds as though you did. We, too, find that we have to drag ourselves away from the sun deck, pool and stunning view! We look forward to seeing you in the future. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us! Cindy and Bill

WONDERFUL.

  • 5 of 5
Casa Yaya was the perfect selection for 2 empty nest couples sharing a vacation on St John. The beautiful master bedrooms on each end of the house, easy access ( steep but accessible from the main road in around 5 minutes ) and incredibles views were all we could hope for. The communication with the home owner was excellent. Highly recommended.
