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.

Casa YaYa

  • 5 of 5

Paradise found! The views are spectacular, the deck and pool area are awesome, comfy beds, great breezes throughout the house! What a great property. Cindy was so quick to respond and easy to work with. They have thought of everything you could want in the house. We were so beach ready everyday with the chairs and coolers! Coral Bay is truly a gem! We are so glad we stayed on this part of the island instead of Cruz Bay! It has a personality of its own. We LOVED it! Good restaurants! Aqua Bistro was our family favorite. We travelled with our 2 teenagers, 19 and 15. Our favorite beaches were Maho and Cinnamon. We did a boat day through the BVI with Good Day Charters! It was an incredible day! We definitely hope for a return trip to Casa YaYa! Thanks Cindy and Bill!

Casa Ya Ya

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a spot in paradise. Great property, super views, very good restaurants and beach accessibility, great owners to work with at a very fair price. Best beaches in our opinion, Maho (get there early-snorkeling off the right side and around the corner) and Salt Pond (quiet local beach and hit the Tourist Trap on the way home) great food at Shipwreck Landing, Miss Lucy's, and burgers at Skinny Legs. Catch the Hot Club Band somewhere if you can…really good/fun. Information book at the house has all you need, just pick up a map of St. John at the ferry terminal and be ready for an adventure. If boating is your thing a trip to the BVIs on Palm Tree Charters is the way to go, Jimmy and Bridgett are wonderful. Thanks Cindy and Bill for opening your home to us!

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Ya Ya. The house offers everything needed plus more. The view is incredible, pool and deck area amazing, the interior is spacious and comfortable, and the beds are great!

Access to shopping, restaurants, and beaches is easy. We are already planning a return next year for two more weeks.

Casa Yaya- Best view on the island

  • 5 of 5

This villa is outstanding!

We are seasoned VRBO travelers and would highly suggest you put this on your bucket list.

When traveling we look for owners that we feel are responsive and trustworthy, Cindy and Bill are that and much more. When searching online for a villa, we had narrowed are choice to about 3 or 4 villas and Cindy was so quick to respond and answered all our questions without delay. You can tell she loves this island and loves to share her villa with others.

We really enjoyed the amazing view and sunrises and had the luxury of siting out on the deck with a full moon on the last evening. We were traveling with my daughter and husband and really liked the floor plan of Casa Yaya. Two master bedrooms separated by the great room... Each master with an awesome outdoor shower.

We also loved the pool and used it daily after exploring the island and the many beaches.

Our favorite beaches were Little Lamshure and Francis Bay. We saw squid, sting rays, turtles and a nurse shark.

Loved every minute of our trip!

Thank you for sharing your amazing villa with us.

To die for

  • 5 of 5

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!
