Overview

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.

Our On Island Coordinator and Staff will ensure that your stay is comfortable and that your needs are met.

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!

About Cindy Humphreys

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

Why Cindy Humphreys chose Coral Bay

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.

To die for

Nothing bad to say about a tropical island really. I could probably stay in a hut on the beach and be in paradise, but this house is just over the top wonderful. The home is actually quite a bit bigger than the photos make it out to be, the deck is expansive and the view is unbelievable. The home is clean, the rooms are beautiful and the kitchen is fully stocked. The only comment I would make is that a jeep is needed or strongly advised to get to the home. We rented a small compact car and while it made it to the home with no worries we did need to take it slow on the gravel road and gun it up the driveway. So spend the extra bucks for a jeep. you'll be happy you did.

The owners are VERY nice and easy to contact if needed. I would and WILL recommenced this home to everyone and anyone who mentions the Virgin Islands.

We will be coming back next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your nice review. Nothing makes us happier than to know that our guests love Casa YaYa as much as we do! We agree with the 4x4 suggestion. Not only to navigate the short, rocky part of the road that leads to Casa YaYa but also some of the beaches and off the beaten path areas that are great to explore. Looking forward to having you back next year!

Fantastic View with a pool!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful villa! The view overlooking Coral Bay and East End and the well maintained pool are what makes Casa Yaya the best choice for where to stay on St. John. It is the perfect size for two couples. If planning to stay at Casa Yaya I recommend a Jeep or a vehicle with four wheel drive. Like many small roads on the island, it is not paved and has a few deep wholes. A few things to do while on St. John, go to Salt Pond, hike up to Ramshead, snorkel afterwards, then head to the Tourist Trap (small yellow building right before Salt Pond) for the surf and turf tacos. And you must have the signature drink "Drink Right, Keep Left", best island drink I had. I also recommend doing a day trip to the BVI. We went out with WetWoody's and had a great time snorkeling at Norman Island, having lunch at Tortola, then visiting Soggy Dollar on Jost Van Dyke. Our favorite beaches on St. John were Francis Bay (for snorkeling) and Hawksnest for swimming. If you need snorkel gear make sure to stop at Crappies in Coral Bay. Overall great trip. Cindy, the owner, was great to work with and was quick to respond. Plan ahead, this place is popular but now I know why!

AMAZING!!

This was my first stay in Casa Ya Ya and Wow, what a stay I had! Beautiful home, lots of windows, refreshing breeze blowing in and the sun deck and the view was the most beautiful and relaxing place ever! I didn't want to leave. I love St John and will definitely visit Coral Bay again. The locals are so warm and friendly. Already making plans to return next summer.

Wonderful Week at Casa Yaya on St. John

  • 5 of 5
My husband and another couple and I just returned from a week stay at Casa Yaya earlier this week. We had a wonderful time! Cindy was great to work with-- very responsive during the booking process and happily answered all of our questions on many occasions. One of the reasons we were initially drawn to Casa Yaya over other villas (besides the house itself) was because of her prompt responses and willingness to help.

The house is exactly as it is described and pictured-- maybe better. The view from the balcony off the back deck is amazing! Views of Coral Bay, the East End, some of the BVI's, and out to the right just the open ocean. The location of the house is great too- tucked in on the hillside with a few neighboring properties (but not on top of you, there is total privacy here). We met our greeter, Sally, in Coral Bay and she was very helpful in showing us to the house and making recommendations on restaurants and activities.

We utilized the kitchen most nights because everything you need to cook is available to you. We loved having the washer&dryer as well and used it often! It was nice to be able to wash beach towels and clothes since they were often wet and sandy from the beach. The view from the main room (and the bedrooms, for that matter) is unreal- you can see the green hills and blue water from everywhere inside the house. AC in the bedrooms was a nice touch.

We rented jeeps and ventured out for most of the day everyday. Some of our favorite activities were: Snorkeling around Waterlemon Cay, a Kekoa Sailing trip, lounging on the beach at Maho Bay, and hiking the Leinster Bay Trail. It was nice to return to the house each evening to clean up and relax before the next day. We also spent several evenings on the back patio after dinner.

You will not find a better owner to work with, or a better property to stay in for your trip to St. John. Highly recommend this villa! Hope to return sometime in the future.

Not going to be long with this review. If you want to spend a week of bliss on the island of St. John, then book your stay at Casa Yaya. The house is the perfect place to stay for a couple or a family. Cindy is wonderful to work with. You won't find a better experience than 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.
