Dramatically perched 60 ft. over the calm Caribbean Sea, 'Cliffhanger' presents stunning views across Coral Harbor and into Hurricane Hole. Completely re-modeled and professionally decorated in 2011, this waterfront villa offers everything new; a new modern full kitchen with all the amenities, new bathrooms with stunning detail, and all new furniture, appliances, and electronics. 'Cliffhanger' is ideal for couples and perfect for families, as it comfortably accommodates up to 6 guests with its 3 air conditioned bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The master bedroom, kitchen, extra bathroom and living space is located on the main level. The other two bedrooms, each with their own entrance off the lower deck, can be reached via an exterior staircase. Having our home set up this way allows us to offer the master bedroom alone or in combination with either one or two of the downstairs bedrooms. Gaze into the mesmerizing blue and watch boats from all parts of the globe as they glide through the turquoise waters of Coral Bay Harbor. Spot turtles and sting rays from the sprawling dramatic deck while mixing drinks at the outdoor bar. Cheer on sailboat races from the comfort of your hammock.
'Cliffhanger' is located waterfront to Coral Bay with surf sounds around the entire property. From the villa you can easily access the Virgin Islands National Park and white sand beaches for hiking, water sports such as sailing, snorkeling, or diving, or just plain lounging on the beach. The Village of Coral Bay is just under 1/2 mile away, with many shops, restaurants, bars, and access to an array of adventurous activities. The still-pristine island of St. John is the smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands and lies just 3 miles east of St. Thomas and a mile from the nearest of the British Virgin Islands. Nearly two-thirds of the island is national park, with forests and nature trails for your enjoyment. Nature lovers will be amazed by St. John's ecological diversity.
Conveniently located with paved access to the front door, high speed internet, cable TV, soft linens, spacious decks both in the sun and in the shade, big blue ocean views from every room, and lush outdoor environment; these are but a few of the features that make 'Cliffhanger' the perfect choice for your St. John vacation.

This morning as I began thinking about this year's family vacation, my mind went back to last year's trip in paradise. The combination of the island of St. John with its beautiful, vibrant, lush scenery in every direction and the villa (Cliffhanger) where we stayed made our trip perfect in every way. I sat down to write this review months ago, but must have gotten side-tracked--there are just so many wonderful things to mention, that it's difficult to put into words. Cliffhanger is even more beautiful than its pictures show. I remember reading that it advertised a "parking spot," which I thought was odd, but we soon realized how lucky we were to have such a convenient, safe, easy place to park. Many of the other private villas have steep, narrow, winding driveways which we certainly would not have wanted to maneuver--especially after a rainstorm. Actually, speaking of rain….we were stranded at Cliffhanger our last day there due to a tropical storm. We were not at all disappointed with having to stay inside the beautifully decorated, comfortable villa playing games and looking at the gorgeous views of Coral Bay during a storm. Once there was a break in the rain, we made our way over to one of restaurants close by for a quick bite. Cliffhanger is certainly beautifully decorated inside, but outside is wonderful as well. It has oversized decking with plenty of seats in the shade as well as the sun. It is spacious and includes everything needed for a wonderful vacation. We took advantage of having Jared (who helps manage Cliffhanger) grocery shop for us prior to our arrival, so we were fully stocked and ready to go as soon as we arrived. Cliffhanger's convenient location had a couple of really good restaurants nearby that were walkable! Aqua Bistro was our favorite in Coral Bay, but Shipwreck also offered a really good meal. Our entire family loved everything about St. John, and when we return we will certainly be looking into staying at Cliffhanger again!
If you choose Cliffhanger, you will never want to leave, I promise. This was our first time to St. John and I know we would never want to stay anywhere else. We loved staying in Coral Bay...it was quiet but close to everything we could want in terms of restaurants, groceries, beaches and snorkeling. Coming home to this spectacular house every day was truly luxurious. The views are incredible, the house is gorgeously decorated and you will want for nothing. My husband and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary here and each day we would come home and talk about what a fantastic respite Cliffhanger was at the end of a day at the beach. We raved about it so much, my in-laws have already booked a trip to Cliffhanger for Jan. Truly, it really doesn't get any better. For those who like water access right from the house and are comfortable with steep stairs...we swam & snorkeled right from the bottom of the stairs...an easy rocky entry and great explorations. Denise, the homeowner, is one of the best property owners I have ever worked with. Jared and Austin, the property managers, were fantastic as well. I can't wait to return, and bring the kids next time!
This home is completely as advertised and served as a perfect basecamp and retreat for my wife and me. The house is in impeccable shape and was spotlessly clean. It's comfortable, quiet, nicely appointed and has spectacular views. We found the location convenient to great beaches and snorkeling sites, hiking trails, several good restaurants, a small market and a kayak/snorkel rental shop. We took great advantage of the well outfitted kitchen and outdoor grill (better than the grill I use at home). The parking pad right off the road made access to the house much easier than many nearby houses. Denise was great to work with and Jared, the caretaker, was a big help getting us set up. We can't wait to return.
The "Cliffhanger" is absolutely amazing. This made for the most memorable family vacation. This was our 3rd time staying on St John and this was the best trip yet. Denise and Jared were absolutely wonderful with communicating and making sure we had everything we needed. The villa is absolutely spectacular you can't ask for anything more in a vacation home. The kitchen was well equipped with dishes, utensils and the blender was an added bonus :) The bathroom fixtures were top of the line and showers were all ceramic and glass block very fancy. The beds were extremely comfortable so comfortable it was hard to get up in the morning. The Cliffhanger was extremely clean and everything was in perfect condition.The views from the villa were breathtaking and was very peaceful on Coral Bay. We will most definitely stay at the Cliffhanger again and would highly recommend renting this villa for the perfect island vacation, as you will not be disappointed.
I just recently took clients to St John and stayed at Cliffhanger. It was wonderful, the absolute best view of Coral Bay. House was great. Everyone loved it and we will be back.
My husband and I recently visited St. John for the 3rd time. We had never stayed at Cliffhanger, but we were so glad we did! The house is absolutely beautiful inside and out, and the views are amazing! The house is very well taken care of. We had no problems with anything while we were there. We were especially pleased with the parking just off the road instead of a steep driveway. We enjoyed having breakfast out on the deck looking out at Coral Bay. We are very big fans of Coral Bay and really enjoy the restaurants on that side of the island. There are many to choose from, and they are all within minutes of the house. Denise was absolutely wonderful to work with! She regularly emailed me to make sure we didn't need anything before arriving and was willing to answer any questions we had. If you are looking for a beautiful, comfortable house while staying on St. John, I highly recommend Cliffhanger. We will definitely stay there again on our next trip. Thanks Denise!
