Wonderful stay at Sol cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent four nights at the Sol cottage. We found everything as described - the cottage was spotless and well equipped with everything needed to explore St. John. After arriving later than expected, the deli supplies were a Godsend. A very thoughtful touch. A short drive back to town will connect you with the many things St. Johns has to offer. We did have a bit of trouble initially locating the cottage the directions but a call to our host put us on track. We enjoyed the screened in porch. The outdoor shower was the best! We found the upstairs quite lovely -- a comfortable bed, a separate bathroom and even books to read. (As noted by others, the spiral staircase might pose a problem to those with mobility issues.) A great place to stay!

Loved this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time exploring St. John and were very happy with our accommodations. We rented a jeep and it was wonderful to have a comfortable bed and 'home base' after a long day of hiking, exploring the beautiful beaches or taking a charter around the island.

We chose this location for it's proximity to Reef Bay and the connecting trails. It was a wonderful decision. We took about 1 1/2 hr to hike to the petroglyphs via Parrot Bay Beach to Reef bay beach and another hour to explore par force and the Reef bay great house. We enjoyed the hermit crabs that were abundant at the Reef bay plantation that was about a 45 minute hike.

This was the perfect place for our romantic getaway!

Peaceful, immaculate private cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Sol Cottage. The area is totally peaceful, with only the sound of crickets and frogs at night. This was the cleanest and most well-supplied rental we have stayed at, with beach chairs, coolers, beach towels, and even a welcome array of deli supplies that gave us an easy dinner after we arrived.

The cottage is a steep and winding 10 minute drive from Cruz Bay, and like many other times on the island we appreciated having a Jeep instead of a 2wd sedan. The trade-off for peaceful quiet evenings is that there are no restaurants or stores close by, but that is the point! We loved the walk south up Hilltop Lane for beautiful sunrise and sunset views. We also hiked to the petroglyphs from the cottage, but you should plan on more than the 30 minutes listed in the posting. (About 2 1/4 miles one-way, with 3/4 mile on soft sand along Reef Bay.) A beautiful hike, but slower than the distance would imply since much of it isn't on a trail.

The screened-in porch was absolutely wonderful, surrounded by palm trees and a perfect place for breakfasts or relaxing after a long day. The open air shower was fantastic also, keeping the extra humidity out of the house and providing some fun times with tree frogs that live in the decorative conch shells lining the top. (Don't worry frog-o-phobes, they never crawled down inside of the shower.) We found Sol Cottage to be the perfect private peaceful escape for us, and a great base for exploring the island!

Adorable Charming Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Dear James,

Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay at the SOL Cottage!! The cottage itself was very roomy, having a screened in very decorative porch, liked having two floors, two ceiling fans, many windows, which kept the place cool with a nice breeze. The cottage being surrounded by tropical plants and trees plus the sounds of various birds was a feeling of being outside. The shower was amazing looking up seeing the sun beam through the trees!

The kitchen was well equipped, with Keurig coffee machine (with filter to add coffee grounds), nice new size refrigerator, hot plates, toaster oven and microwave. The cottage was close to a wide variety of beaches, our favorite being Francis Bay. It was also close to town (Cruz Bay) with two grocery stores to pick up supplies. The TV worked very well too! The free Wi-Fi with free calling to the states was an added bonus. Very nicely decorated too!! Thanks so much for the delicious snacks/sandwiches on our arrival, which really a nice treat! Everything was great from start to finish. You being such a wonderful and very helpful host as well! If we could rate higher than the five stars we definitely would!! We definitely try to visit again hoping for 2018!

Cute tropical cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at SOL cottage. It was very nicely decorated, comfortable, and super clean. At the end of long days out snorkeling we really enjoyed coming back to the outdoor shower. The kitchen was equipped well enough for any of the meals we wanted to prepare. The location was close enough to Cruz Bay to quickly run to town for groceries or a night out. We really enjoyed our stay and think it would be very hard to find a better value for the money on St. John!

Best Deal on St. John

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for me, & I wish I'd stayed longer rather than doing half of my trip at other places. It was SUCH a great deal compared to the other places on St. John, & had everything I needed. Marc bought me a bag of groceries when I arrived, which was SO kind & unexpected! There were also fancy, unexpected touches like bougainvilla bouquets & fancy folding on the towels & toilet paper, like you'd see in a resort.

It took me 10 minutes to drive into Cruz Bay. There was a cute frog who came to visit me outside the cottage, & I loved the jungle noises at night. If you don't mind an outdoor shower (buggy) & occasional bugs in the house, this place is perfect. I appreciated having a closet with plenty of hangers, & 2 bathrooms. It was nice staying a bit outside of the busy town, & Marc gave me total privacy even though the cottage sits on his property just feet away. I highly recommend Sol Cottage!
