SAVE 15% 8/16-9/6! RAINBOW BEACH HOUSE - A BEACHFRONT VILLA LOCATED IN CORAL BAY

Coral Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 plus bedrooms, 4 baths, sleeps 10, a/c, hot tub, pool

With a white sand beach for a front yard, Rainbow Beach is one of the fortunate few homes on St. John that is a true beachfront villa. Rainbow is located on a quiet cove on the western shore of Coral Bay and the swimming, snorkeling and boating in the warm Caribbean waters, 50 feet from your deck, is one of Rainbow’s best features. There are only four villas on this small beach, so this setting is tranquil, restful and romantic. Rainbow Beach also includes a pool, a hot tub and a sunny deck with lovely views. The breezes blow cool and gentle, and it’s a 5 minute drive to restaurants and bars in Coral Bay.

The house has four bedrooms with baths plus a loft (1 king, 2 queens, 2 twins, and queen platform beds in the loft ) and all the bedrooms have a/c, TV, iPod clock radios and water views. The bedrooms are located on both levels (2 up, 2 down) on opposite ends of the house, so all have good privacy. Two bedrooms open to the upper level pool deck, and the ground level bedrooms open to the beach. There’s also a loft bedroom above the great room that sleeps 2 – 4 kids, or one couple.

The great room contains the living, and dining areas, plus the kitchen. There’s a table for eight in the interior dining area, or fire up the gas grill and dine on the deck. The great room has a 50” flat screen TV and stereo/CD with an iPod connection, seating for 6 – 8 and beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea and the National Park as well as Tortola in the British Virgin Islands.

Rainbow Beach is one of only a handful of villas in Coral Bay that sit on a white sand beach – it is first and foremost, a beach house. It was designed for families, couples, or anyone who loves to be in the sun, sand and water for most of the day, and then in the hot tub and pool at night. It will accommodate 10 people, but it's also a perfect romantic hideaway for one or two couples. With lots of suntan oil, sand, music and food and drink in the mix, this house is a fun time beach house that's very enjoyable without being overly sophisticated. It was intended for fun in the sun and pure relaxation; and it dishes out plenty of both.

My occupation (trial lawyer and real estate developer) has lots of rewarding moments, but its also a very stressful way to earn a living. Relaxation and unwinding is not an option, its an absolute necessity and when it comes to relaxation, Rainbow Beach is pure magic. If you need to unwind, this is a fantastic place to do it. This location also has a very romantic essence. It has always worked for me, and I bet it will do the same for you

Dave Rifkin purchased this villa in 1992

We looked for years for a beachfront site on St. John to build a vacation home for my family. The National Park beaches are gorgeous and the Park owns most of the islands beachfront property, so there just isn’t a lot of private beachfront property on St. John. So when this property came on the market, we pounced on it and it has proven to be one of the best decisions we ever made. We designed the house to accommodate a large family, but it's also designed so the upper level is perfect for just one or two couples. Maybe it's the turquoise waters right outside your windows, or the lapping of the sea on the shore, or the softly blowing, warm, moist trade winds, but there's something very romantic about Rainbow Beach. Over the years we've rented to a lot of honeymooners, couples and lovers, and the guest comments make it real clear that this is a house with a genuine romantic essence.

I like to be in the water, or on the water, 2-3 hours a day - swimming, snorkeling and boating. I’m a self confessed beach nut, and the Caribbean sun and the warm sea are what makes every day at Rainbow Beach another day in heaven for me. At night you can always find me in the hot tub with some good music and a cold drink under a star filled sky – the sun’s down, but I’m still in heaven. If you or your family like being in the water and on the water, I think you’ll really enjoy Rainbow Beach

THANK YOU FOR AN AMAZING VACATION - BEAUTIFUL HOME AND PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
I was lucky enough to spend nearly a week in the Rainbow Beach House and enjoyed every minute of my stay.

The home is beautiful and comfortably accommodated our group of 10 people. The main living room area is great for entertaining a large party and the kitchen is spacious enough to allow for multiple chefs!

There is a massive porch located right outside of the living room with excellent views of the bay. We had a really nice time swimming in the pool and unwinding in the Jacuzzi after a day at the beach. There's a grill on the porch which we used nightly and we also grilled up a bunch of Spiny Caribbean lobsters we caught in the bay right outside the home!

The ocean is just a few steps from the house and has really beautiful reefs and tropical fish. When we weren't lounging in the pool we were out front snorkeling!

Words cannot describe the amazing vacation we all had at the Rainbow Beach House. Highly recommended and looking forward to returning on our next trip to the Caribbean!

PARADISE FOUND - BEST VACATION SPOT IN THE CARIBBEAN - AMAZING VALUE

  • 5 of 5
I just stayed at Rainbow Beach House - all I can say is, WOW! We had the most incredible stay and I wish it never had to end.

We arrived on 8/27/2013 and were immediately greeted by the management company upon arriving in Cruz Bay - we got the keys, rented a Jeep and were off to the house in less than 10 minutes. It could NOT have been easier. They provided us with detailed directions to get the house - it was simple - and one of the most beautiful, picturesque car rides imaginable.

Upon arriving in Johnson's Bay, an exclusive gated enclave of high end homes in Coral Bay, we pulled up to Rainbow Beach House and knew we had arrived in PARADISE! The house was exactly as we'd imagined it'd be - just perfect.

We had a group of 10 - 6 adults (3 couples) and 4 children. The 3 master bedrooms - there is one that is truly the master bedroom because of its size, the other 2 are VERY close tied/2nds and are definitely master bedroom quality - are all very comfortable, with private baths en-suite. The 4th bedroom has 2 twin beds, perfect for children or single adults (and I suppose they could easily be combined to make a large bed), plus the loft which is very spacious and has 2 full/queen beds suitable for adults.

The house couldn't have been more perfect - huge kitchen with a great layout for group dinners, entertaining and relaxing. The outdoor patio is HUGE and could easily accommodate a dinner party for 20 adults. The Weber barbeque worked like new and got tons of use while we were there - grilled lobsters, burgers, steaks... you name it!

I was told by the manager that repairs had been made on the house to improve the dishwasher - it worked perfectly for us without any issue. The pool and jacuzzi are serene - I spent a lot of time just lounging there, reading and enjoying the view of Coral Bay and Tortola, in the distance. The colors of the sea will make you feel at ease.

In front of the house, we spotted large sting rays, sea turtles and beautiful fish - plus, the location in Coral Bay is very accessible to all of the best beaches on the island (Saltpond Bay - definitely a must see - it's magnificent. Many of the small restaurants in Coral Bay are excellent, too - as is the little grocery store.

We couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay at Rainbow Beach House - I hope we'll be able to return again within the next 6 months. Our family hasn't stopped talking about it since we've been home - it was a perfect vacation!

A BIT OF A DISAPPOINTMENT

  • 3 of 5
This property is for sale and I hope someone buys it soon. It could us some new owner energy. Things are a bit tattered all around. The pictures look better then real life. we were 10 people and no one really wanted to go swimming right by the house, not really a beach. Location is well away from things , sometimes that was good and sometimes it wasn't. Its not a 20 min. ride to cruz bay, More like 45mins at least. The neighbor says this is a very strong house so it has good potential. Someone buy it and fix it up!!! We love St john and enjoyed the beaches. sitting outside at night was great. We had no problems with bugs. Our favorite beachon St.john ,this time,was salt pond beach. Very close, not to many people, great snorkling, even enjoyed the little hike we had to take to get to it. 5-10 mins. Love city conven, store was a good deal.Not to far away. A few bars in between with some good rums if you like that sort of thing.
Would I stay there again? No. For the money I spent ,it should have been better kept up. I forgot to mention the $10.oo sound system that was a pain to even get to work. And no light in the pool at night.( we really missed that)And losing power in one of the lower bedrooms ,so there was no air and those poeple had to sleep in one of the other bedrooms with the people that were already there. If you stay there , tell me I'm wrong about it being sort of run dowm and not well looked after.

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
This is truly paradise! We love the layout of this villa. There are beautiful views from every room. It is so nice having the pool on the deck and private beach just below. We had fun swimming, snorkeling and rafting right out in front of the villa. There are also a number of beautiful beaches nearby, as well as, walking & hiking trails. The property was very clean and well-maintained. We highly recommend this villa. Can't wait to go back!!!

AMONG THE BEST IN THE ISLANDS

  • 5 of 5
My family and I enjoyed a tranquil week at this villa in Coral Bay on St. John recently. The appointments were wonderful and the views were outstanding. There is plenty of room for the whole family or group to spread out and all will enjoy the lovely pool and jacuzzi. This is a jewel and close to all the great parts of the island.

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
I have vacationed at the stunning Rainbow Beach Villa twice: The first time was with a group of 9 friends to celebrate college graduation. I could not stay away and recently came back years later for a romantic getaway. There is something mesmerizing about this property that will always drag me back! This property provides everything you could possibly desire: private beach, great pool, hot tub, unbelievable sunsets, star-watching, and an incredible tropical environment. Rainbow Beach is in a great location, close to beautiful beaches and great restaurants, but the best part is you never have to leave home! Rainbow Beach simply has everything you need. Whether i need a week away from the stresses of life and work and i am seeking relaxation, or i am planning a week of island entertainment and fun, this is the place for me. I have recommended this rental to friends and family and everyone has come back with spectacular reviews! I have been to many tropical places, but nothing compares to Rainbow Beach.
