'Slice of Life' apartment in Coral Bay, St. John gives you just that! An opportunity to experience a slice of life on a beautiful Caribbean island. Watch great sunrises and view beautiful full moons as you relax on the spacious covered deck. Quiet, breezy and comfortable, 'Slice of Life' is an affordably priced retreat to enjoy all St. John has to offer. Kayaks are available for use and the owner can arrange for diving trips.
Keywords: Private one bedroom unit with large porch, full kitchen and bath. Nice breeze, great view!
The covered deck is huge and the views out to the BVI's are fabulous -- wake up early for at least one sunrise. The apartment is very spacious, spotlessly clean and the Queen pillow-top mattress is especially comfy. Plenty of windows open for a cross-breeze and if the winds die down there's ceiling fans in each of the rooms. With a complete kitchen plus a gas grill, you can cook as much as you like or pop down the hill to one of the many restaurants around Coral Bay. When the sun goes down, lie in the hammock to stargaze and listen as the tree frogs and birds create "jungle" surround sounds. Slice of Life is truly a great apartment and a great deal.
We stayed two weeks on St John. I choose this place because it was reasonably priced, had what we needed and looked well maintained. It was everything that we imagined and wanted it to be. Relaxing and comfortable. A great getaway. Great location...about 1/2 way between everything. The ride getting up to the house is bumpy but so worth it. A shorts ways away is the Dolphin Market where we would stop a lot. The Aqua Bistro is right next door to that which I thought was the best food on the island. Thank you John!!! We are coming back next year!
True to other reviews, the property was in great condition - very clean, spacious, quiet and comfortable. The amenities are well maintained and very convenient, especially the gorgeous porch and outdoor bbq.
Its Coral Bay location is ideal to enjoy a leisurely holiday on the island. The location is very convenient in terms of visiting spectacular beaches and snorkeling sites, restaurants and nature trails. The off-the-beach snorkeling stands out as some of the best we've done - rich corals, tropical fish, turtles, rays, etc. The location is also a short drive from Cruz Bay and its many shops, grocery stores (recommend Dolphin), restaurants, etc.
The owner, John, is very hospitable, knowledgeable and welcoming. He was very responsive to any information/ requests and helpful in recommending best off-the-beach snorkeling, beaches and local restaurants (especially Oasis in Coral Bay).
Overall, the trip was very successful, relaxing, comfortable, and yet adventurous and exciting. The owner's hospitality and advice, gorgeous property and it's ideal location on St. John made all the difference.
The Slice of Life is a wonderful place to stay on St John. Fritz is a great host and everything wrote on all of the other reviews is totally true. My wife and I spent a week in April and enjoyed it immensely. The place was the best deal we have ever found in the Carribean. Spacious, quiet and beautiful. The views were great and it's a great location from which to.go off and see the island. If you like beautiful beaches and great food, this is the place to go.
We spent 3 great nights at the Slice of Life, and wish we could have stayed longer. The wrap around porch with views, BBQ, and hammock is a great place to spend all your time. John the owner goes above and beyond to get you there and settle in, and then makes himself available only if you need him. Otherwise, you're on your own in his place that is just like the photos. No roughing it here -- it was comfortable, clean and spacious. A great breeze never stops blowing through a very nice apartment. The hill up to his place is an adventure, like all on the island, and you park a few steps from your front door that looks out over the beautiful bay. Easy to hop in your car and get moving.
The place has everything you could need, a spacious bathroom, Bose with great sound, fully stocked kitchen, and John can recommend great snorkel spots. Might be the best bargain on the island. John, thanks for your above-and-beyond hosting.
My husband and I got back from our trip a few days ago and we are eager to return! This was our first time to the Caribbean and the Slice of Life was a perfect place to stay. John was very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The apartment has everything you would need in the kitchen, a lovely bathroom (which really should be highlighted in the pictures because it is very unique!), a cozy living room and a nice sized bedroom. There are plenty of travel books for your use to help you navigate around the island and a few menus to help you pick a dinner place. Having been provided beach towels, chairs, and coolers was great too - gave us a few less things to pack. The only thing we would change (and it wasn't that big of a deal for us) would be to add some blinds. We made it work just fine and now that we think about it, having them may have restricted the views a bit.
We cannot wait to return and will probably look up John and the Slice of Life again. (John - kindly tell Squeaky we said goodbye. We didn't see him before we took off and feel terrible. He became a great friend and we'd hate to hurt his feelings.) :)
