Excelled expection

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding place, the views are amazing. Loved looking at the boats in coral bay and being able to see the BVI. The place was as advertised, with everything you need for a great vacation. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need. Sitting at the bar by the pool in the morning was one of the best parts. It was nice to have the beach chairs, umbrella and coolers. Definitely would recommend the place and would love to come back. Best VRBO experience ever!

A great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and cozy home in a central location with an awesome view. No need for AC. WIFI was surprisingly strong. Has everything you might need and the pool is a huge bonus though we didn't end up using it as much as I expected. The only possible negative is that you have to go outside and up stairs to get from the master bedroom to the kitchen. That would probably be a positive though if you come with more than one couple or kids.

Amazing View! Updated Cottage with awesome outdoor private pool!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have used VRBO on many occasions and we've seen the pictures of properties, shown up and things are not exactly like pictured on VRBO. THIS IS NOT THE CASE with the coconut hill cottage! Pictures are not only accurate but the property is amazing. The view itself would be enough but the cottage is nicely furnished and decorated with a private porch and pool! We would spend our afternoon in the heat of the day on the porch with drinks and it was more than we could have asked for on our honeymoon. Restuarants and awesome snorkeling (Saltpond Bay) are within 5-10 minutes of the cottage. We would recommend a jeep as the cottage sits on a mountain (like most of St. John).

Sue and Bob were also amazing. Good communicators, flexible and I even left a bathingsuit behind that Sue was nice enough to send to me.

Rent this place. You will not be disappointed!

The house was exactly what the pictures show. Stunning views and very clean property.

  • 5 of 5

The house is stocked up with all the necessities, beach chairs, coolers and beach towels which we used everyday. Having the washer / dryer is a big plus point.

The owners Bob and Sue were very helpful. Will highly recommend this property without hesitation.

Fantastic rental with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely vacation on St. John while staying at the Coconut Hill Cottage. The cottage is a wonderful place to stay on the quieter side of the island in Coral Bay. It was so nice to experience all of the activities the island has to offer then return to the serenity of the cottage. The views from the deck and screened porch are absolutely incredible, it is the perfect place for your morning coffee/tea and evening cocktails. There was plenty of room for our family of 4, we have 2 young adult children, my husband and myself. When we were ready to go to sleep the kids had the upstairs to themselves. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. It was wonderful to have beach towels, chairs, coolers and an umbrella at our disposal as well as a washer and dryer. Sue and Bob were fantastic and checked on us to see if we needed anything and recommended things to do. There are great restaurants, a new market, a place to rent snorkeling gear (Crabby's) and power boat rentals with a captain, all in the small town of Coral Bay. Indigo Grill was our favorite restaurant! If you are looking for something more peaceful than Cruz Bay then Coconut Hill Cottage in Coral Bay is perfect!

Thanks again Sue and Bob,

The Griffin Family

You can stop searching now!

  • 5 of 5

I hear you. You've been searching for the right place. Its so hard to choose. Will it be as nice as the pictures? Will it be clean? Listen up, this place is absolutely incredible! First things first, the view will blow you away. It has got to be one of the most amazing things I have ever seen and I have been all over the world. Seriously. Next up, the house. Bob and Sue (the owners) have thought of everything you might need and then some. Furnishings are beautiful and comfortable. Towels are soft. Cool ocean breezes are complimentary. Say you want to find a great restaurant, the best place for drinks, a secret secluded beach...put down the guide book and ask Bob and Sue. The love St. John and want you to also. They'll show you the best of the best St. John has to offer. Believe me, this makes the whole experience! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
