About Mike and Chris Jordan
Chris and Mike Jordan left San Francisco in 1991 on their sailboat, Rhumb Runner. After 6 years of sailing along the Pacific Coast of North America, getting married while transiting the Panama Canal,cruising the Western Caribbean, and sailing the Eastern Caribbean chain of islands, they settled on the most beautiful island, St John, where they have made their home. They maintain and care for their home themselves and enjoy sharing the island's culture and beauty with visitors to St John.

Great place for our family vacation
Had a lovely time at Rhumb Runner. Glad we were forewarned about the goat population on the mountain; we did have visitors. Views were great and we enjoyed the pool after a day at one of the many beautiful beaches. House had everything you could possibly need. Drive up/down the mountain is a bit heart stopping until you get used to it. Thank goodness for the Jeep. Michael and Chris were very communicative and sent detailed check in instructions. Nearby restaurants were very good (Aqua Bistro at bottom of hill and Skinny Legs a 5 minute drive. Highly recommend.
Million dollar view
We loved our stay at Rhumb Runners! The house was clean and comfortable with pretty decor and wonderful breezes. We loved having the pool to come home to after exploring all the beaches of St. John. The view from the deck is really breathtaking! I can’t imagine a better view anywhere. The owners and property manager were great to deal with and answered questions promptly. It was a pleasure from start to finish and we would love to stay here again someday. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us!
Nice Coral Bay escape.
Hosts were wonderful too!
Perfect location with gorgeous views of coral bay
This home was in a great location if you are staying in the Coral Bay Area . It does sit up on a steep hill , but we were able to walk down to the local area for dinner and music . The home is lovely with full wrap deck , open living , dining and beautiful updated kitchen . There were steady breezes and we never had to use the air conditioners . Only clitch was we had to conserve water and limit showers due to low water availability. Pool was nice at the end of a hot day at the beach . Would recommend and would return on our next St John visit.
Debbie, thanks for the lovely review and we are happy that you enjoyed our Villa. Also, thanks for leaving it in great shape, but a big thank you for doing a great job conserving water. As you know our water truck broke down and could not deliver water. Thankfully it has been repaired and everything is in good order...but we do ask our guests to conserve water as much as possible, especially in the dry season ( we are experiencing a very severe dry season which makes the owners of the water trucks very happy).
Don't know if you have read the book, 'Don't Stop The Carnival' written by Herman Wouk about the islands....it's a classic written in the early 60s... One of the stories in the book was about the main characters buying a hotel and having a grand opening of their hotel when their cistern broke, losing all the water. But they had tons of champagne....so the Marquis read, when you entered the hotel..."Champagne si...agua no"....Thankfully we still had water for your stay. As I say to folks who stay with us, 'our Islands aren't third world...but right around 2.8 world'....
It's the islands, Mon!
Glad you had a good time and please come back!
A great place to stay in Coral Bay!
This was a wonderful house, perfect for our family of 4. It was very clean with a nice kitchen. The view is amazing. And there are good restaurants at the bottom of the hill (definitely need a 4-wheel drive vehicle!).
Thanks very much for the great review. We are happy to have Rhumb Runners back after the storms. Several of our repeat guests have really appreciated the remodeling and improvements that we made to the Villa. Hope to see you again. Mike and Chris
Beautiful property with outstanding view and GREAT owners!
Beautiful property, comfortable and very private. Rooms and bathrooms have good size and are very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. Location of the house is a little difficult to access because it is almost at the top of the mountain but with a 4WD Jeep should have no problem to get there. Actually I will advise to rent your 4WD in St John and NOT in St Thomas. We had some problems with Budget Rent a Car in St Thomas airport and we don't need problems while in vacations, right? The owners are super nice and ready to help. Consequences of the hurricanes are still a little visible in the surroundings but the house is in perfect condition. Thank you Mike and Chris for letting us use your little piece of heaven.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a wonderful review of our Villa. We loved having you guys stay with us and we would love to have you come back soon. Also great advice on the car rental...we always recommend our guests renting their cars on St John, and also to rent a car as soon as you make a booking. 4WD is a must on St John... Just a point of clarification; our Villa is on a paved road at the top of our hill.... Bordeaux is our mountain, and is about a thousand feet higher than our house...but you still need 4WD to get to our house and pretty much every thing else on St John... St John has come back, and Coral Bay has made great strides considering what Irma did to our community...Thanks again for staying with us...we are so happy you had a great time...Mike and Chris
