Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at Coconut Hill Cottage for our honeymoon. The place was very well kept and had everything that we needed. The views from the porch overlooking Coral Bay are fantastic. The place is very private and quiet and was perfect to come back to after a day of snorkeling or a dinner out.

Beautiful views- worth the climb up the mountain

  • 5 of 5

A great property- updated, freshly painted, well apportioned. A 4 wheel drive is a must (without it you may not have enough traction to climb the hills especially if it's raining), but the views are stunning. Both bedrooms with air conditioned are located downstairs, accessed via an outdoor staircase- no problems at all using the outside staircase, still very private. The pool is lovely (we didn't find it cold as mentioned by other reviews- nice temp and refreshing). Great gas grill- cooked several dinners on it, poured a glass of nice wine, and watched the sun tuck behind the mountains- gorgeous and breathtaking.

Parking is tight if someone else is staying at the lower cottage. Although completely private spaces, you do share parking. Once you get used to it, it isn't a problem.

We love the Coral Bay side of the island and keep returning to it time and time again. Our time at Coconut Hill was wonderful, if not too short. Can't wait to get back.

Beautiful view. Soft breezes.

  • 5 of 5

This house is set a considerable way up Bordeaux Mt. and is not for the faint at heart. We tried to head up the hill early. Watching the light change in the bay below was worth missing out on Cruz Bay craziness. We missed music and would bring a small iPod speaker next time.

Beach towels and chairs terrific help. We hit every beach. The pool was great in the morning sun. Something about floating with that view was very serene.

Amenities good. Solar lights near pool would have be helpful. Sharper knives and some storage containers with lids too.

Beds , towels, dryer, porch all were absolutely perfect. Slept like a baby with wind blowing in the window. Exterior stairs were no big deal! We were used to it in the first day.

Thank you Susan and

Bob. I highly recommend this beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review and especially your suggestions to make the house even better for future guests... we have taken care of everything including a new Bluetooth speaker. The only thing we are hesitant to do is put solar lights by the pool because they cannot be shut off will attract insects. Thanks again....we are so glad you enjoyed your stay!

Wonderful view, accomadations, and owners!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here on an extended retirement vacation. It was like a home away from home with every amenity we could need. Susan and Bob are super people, and made the stay even more enjoyable. We had a few visitors during our stay and the bedrooms and baths on the parking level gave them and ourselves some privacy. We ended up sleeping in the loft on the upper level (main living area). The view from the loft is magnificent and as I awoke a few times each night I would just look out on the mountains and water and fall back asleep. The screened in porch was a great place to relax and dine, the pool area is great, although water was a bit chilly! Most days we would load up the supplied beach chairs and a cooler and head off to one of the beautiful beaches! Francis Bay was our favorite (get there early for parking) and do a little hike to Solomon and Honeymoon beaches, they are beautiful. We rented a jeep (a must) from Courtesy in St. Thomas near the airport as they are one of the few that let you take a vehicle over to St. John. Driving around the island is part of the adventure and it's really a short drive to the beaches and restaurants from the villa. Indigo grill was one of our favorites but we had good meals at every restaurant in the Coral Bay end. We ventured over to Cruz Bay a few times a week to try the many restaurants there. Rhumb Lines, Longboard, La Tapa were our favorite but I was surprised to never have a bad meal! Even though there is a small villa that shared the parking lot, there is no invasion of privacy. We were so fortunate to find this place and be able to stay for so long, next time we make it to St. John we will stay here again, can't begin to describe the comfort we felt here and how much we enjoyed getting to know Susan and Bob! Miss you and "our" home! Just to put it out there- we completed the "8 tuff miles"!

Great house, Great location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Coconut Cottage. The location was great with beautiful views. The house was well equipped with comfy furniture and everything you would need to hit the beaches or just sit back and relax. We loved the porch where we could eat our meals and sip our coffee with the most beautiful island breezes. Our only disappointment was that the pool was very cool but we knew that from other reviews. 4 week drive is surely a plus most anywhere on the island and this is no exception. Well worth it!! We loved our stay and would return. Our host was most responsive and helpful.
