Upper Carolina Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Lovely, one bedroom apartment with beautiful mountain and Caribbean views. Located but five minutes from the island's fantastic north shore beaches. Several hiking trials are also nearby.

Comfortable, quiet accommodations in a tropical setting. Cool evening breezes abound, due to the 900 foot mountain elevation. Deep sea fishing and day sail charters are available, as are trail rides and other diversions.

Central to the communities of both Coral Bay and Cruz Bay with their many fine restaurants and shops.

No smoking, please. Five night minimum stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bob and Anne, In our first trip to the US Virgin Islands, we couldn't have found

a more hospitable host and hostess, a more beautiful view from our windows

and deck, or a more wonderful experience. This was a much needed

vacation; a break from reality, and our near approaching commitments...a

calm before the storm. Speaking of storms, Hurricane Omar ended up being

what we like to say-Weak Sauce. But it was a nice treat to have a lovely meal

with you both between rain showers. When we weren't enjoying this lovely

apartment, we were having incredible adventures snorkeling in Francis Bay,

Waterlemon Cay, Haulover Bay, and Leinster Bay. It was by far the best

snorkeling Ollie and I have ever experienced. Thank you for such a fabulous

place to stay while we visited St. John. We hope we can make it back to this

tropical paradise.

Signed, Ollie and Sarah

Perfect Villa!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Bob and Anne's villa for two weeks and were very impressed! Bob and Anne were wonderful hosts and we could not have asked for better accomadations. The Northshore is a mere 5 minutes away and Skinny Legs is a short drive away in Coral Bay. We already knew the island very well so the privacy was perfect! I would highly recommend booking Paradise on the Rocks! Thank you Bob and Anne and we will be back:)

A lovely vacation rental with great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Bob and Anne's for our first trip to St. John. Everything was perfect; almost everything you will need is provided and they are great hosts. Our routine for that week was: having breakfast on the patio, snorkeling / hiking during the daytime and hanging out in Coral Bay in the evenings (it's a little less touristy than Cruz Bay)! They were very kind to give us a little tour of the neighboring beaches and a lot of useful advice since they know the island well.

Thank you so much Bob and Anne for your hospitality! We hope to see you again sometime! :-)

It IS paradise

  • 5 of 5

The perfect location for a couple or single traveller. Perched up in the trees on Ajax Peak, this lovely and very comfortable lower level apartment has lush surroundings and looks out over Coral Bay. Since a car is a must you will appreciate the easy access and secure level parking. Beautiful Francis,Maho and Leinster Bays are but a 5 minute drive.

We love the privacy and secluded setting.Our wonderful hosts, Anne and Bob supply all the necesseties and more. All you need is some food and a bathing suit! We have been coming to the island for 9 years and have stayed here the last 6 years. Just love it. It IS paradise!

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from the best vacation ever. We stayed with Bob and Anne for one week and everything was great. The apartment is as it looks on line. It is very clean and efficient and contained everything we needed, even beach chairs and a cooler. The central location is great and is only 5 minutes from Maho Bay. Bob and Anne are terrific hosts and were there to give us advice and ideas but they do not intrude on your privacy. We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a really nice place to stay at a very reasonable rate. Joan and Rob

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Paradise on the Rocks very much. This was our first visit to St John and we were stunned by its beautiful bays, pristine beaches, and breathtaking vistas. The apartment was clean, comfortable and very well appointed, and even included beach chairs and a cooler. The deck was great; nice view, surrounded by bougainvilleas and framed with a large banana tree. (If you haven't tried a mango banana, you're missing something!) Anne and Bob were wonderful hosts. We were welcomed with flowers and wine and Bob even took us for an orientation tour. Their suggestions and recommendations were priceless.
