This was our fourth time staying on St John and our third rental and some might say the third one IS the charm. La Dolce Vita is now number one, correction, the only one on our list for future visits to St John! The waterfront view of Coral Bay is spectacular, the location is very private, the Coral Bay shops and eateries are low key and close by, props to "Pickles in Paradise" for a phenomenal spicy pulled pork! Back at La Dolce Vita walk the native stone footpath down to the oceanside deck to sit waterside and if you're up for a slightly adventurous entry into the water you will be rewarded with opportunities to spot porcupine fish, corals, sponges, lobster rays and conch. Afterwards a refreshing outdoor shower and maybe a relaxing sit in the hot tub. La Dolce Vitas' owners have paid attention to every detail, the kitchen is first rate and well supported, the living area has three eight foot sliding doors and overlooks the water it is surrounded by a wraparound covered deck, a wonderful place to sit and relax while watching the weather change or the sailing ships which come and go from Coral Bay. The middle level consists of two bedrooms (one of which is a nicely appointed studio complete with a smaller kitchen and full bath) and another fantastic wraparound covered deck. You will be lulled to sleep by the trade winds and ocean sounds and if it gets too hot in the bedroom windows can be shut and the air conditioning can be put to use. There are native stone walks which inter-connect the living space, an outdoor shower (yes there are also three additional indoor shower/baths) an open sun deck complete with wonderful reclining deck chairs, outdoor table, hot tub and also waterfront deck. It was so nice to take trips to all the wonderful cays, beaches and into town (Cruz Bay) all the while knowing that La Dolce Vita was our home base. La Dolce Vita does truly feel like home thanks to the efforts of its owners Dorothy and Fernando and by this I mean the obvious Love and attention to detail they've put into La Dolce Vita to truly make it your home away from home.
