About Jill Kemp
We (the owners Tim & Jane) finished building New Moon in 2002. The lot was hand cleared in order to retain as much natural vegetation as possible. In addition to building the entire house himself, owner/cabinetmaker Tim handbuilt all of the beautiful mahogany cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom, as well as the bar in the kitchen, and the armoire upstairs. While we love St John (and Coral Bay in particular) we decided to go cruising in our sailboat to check out other parts of the world. Until we return, we hope you will enjoy staying at our home and exploring the island of St. John!
Jill Kemp purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Jill Kemp chose Upper Carolina
St. John is a wonderful island with so much to offer (including a U.S. national park and national marine sanctuary!). Being *water people* we love the snorkeling and diving all around us. Sailing in the Virgin Islands is also great - we enjoy day sails and overnight trips all over the US and British Virgin Islands from Coral Bay. And hiking in the national park is beautiful - the Johnny Horn trail is within walking distance of our house.
What makes this Cottage unique
Tim sailed into St John on his sailboat in the mid-1990s and started looking for property to buy soon after. He chose this lot because he liked the quieter Coral Bay side and it was a good neighborhood (cul de sac road). The cottage offers a beautiful secluded setting in the trees, with a water view. It's very convenient to the various shops and restaurants in Coral Bay.

Honeymoon in Paradise
Our first impressions of new moon was amazing The View was spectacular we felt at home the moment we arrived. The greetings by the wildlife was nice, the Sounds were all soothing, the breeze was comforting and it was very peaceful, seeing the mountains was like no other place we've ever seen, it was an amazing way to start off our marriage and we look forward to coming back. Thank you so much Ms Jill for all your help with preparing the cabin. We couldn't have found a better place for our first time in virgin islands.
The perfect getaway!
Everything about our stay was absolutely perfect! The property is well maintained and stocked with everything you could need. The location is located conveniently near Coral Bay, but is very peaceful and quiet. There is an abundance of wildlife on the property, including the frequent bananaquit visits! You get a lovely view of Coral Bay, and the cool ocean breeze at night. Just be prepared with bug spray, especially in the evenings! The property manager, Jill, was so friendly and helpful whenever we had any questions. We will be staying here again the next chance we get.
This was our third stay in New Moon and it was just a fabulous as before. We love the villa and enjoy working with Jill. We will definitely stay here again!
New Moon had everything we wanted an more. They have all the little things you need at the cabin for two people. Everything worked great and made our trip very enjoyable.
A perfect honeymoon
I could not imagine a better place for my husband and I to have enjoyed our honeymoon! Everything was perfect and as advertised! We will be back!
Perfect for just the two of us, but truly, if you have mobility issues this isn’t the place for you just due to all the stairs. I was 5 was post knee surgery and stairs were on my list on PT activities so that worked out well for me.😁�
Best stocked kitchen I’ve ever seen with a VRBO place with utensils, pots, pans, dishes, etc. The Manager Jill was super helpful and gave great recommendations of restaurants, and available/responsive to questions.
