Horizons Cottage on St. John is located on the quiet, breezy southeast end of the island with fantastic vistas of the sea & the British Virgin Islands, this 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath cottage can sleep 6. With a wrap around deck on the main floor, you can always find shade and a wind free place to sit and enjoy the views. Enjoy the enchanting sunrise & moon rise views over the sea from the downstairs deck. Fall asleep to the sounds of tree frogs & gentle waves.
Inside, Horizons is a very comfortable, fully tiled open floor plan home with high speed wireless internet, smart TV with Netflix. There are lots of books and games as well. Great location near Salt Pond Bay, Lameshur beaches and National Park land.
The reason I don't take credit cards is it saves us both money! I've been renting my homes since 2004 and am trusted by all that know me. I like to have personal conversations with each guest... Not the animated replies homeaway wants me to do.

I fell in love with St. John when I was in college. I told my mother I was going to live here when my kids graduated from college...and I do!
Susan purchased this house in 2002
The views are unbelievable, hearing the waves, seeing all the boats that comes in and out of Coral Bay and around the BVI. Watching the rains and other weather move through the area... The house felt like "home " right away. Private, quiet...
I've been mentioning some of the benefits above:) I'm also on the east side of the island, where the trade winds come from. It's usually windy and always much cooler than most locations on island. I'm near the end of a dead end road on the far side of the island. National Park land is all around, Salt Pond Bay is 1/2 mile away and Lameshur bays are 1-2 miles away. Did I mention the views? Everyone asks why I don't have better photos as they don't do the views justice. I've asked them to try!!! You have to see the views in person to feel the vastness
We were lucky enough to stay on St. John for two and a half weeks for our honeymoon. During that time, we stayed in three villas. One near Cruz Bay, one near Fish Bay and the third was Horizons Cottage near Coral Bay.
Horizons had the nicest views hands down, more "goodies", most comfortable bed and was the least expensive of all the places we stayed! What a great deal.
Horizons Cottage is in a cute little neighborhood with a lunch restaurant/bar (The Tourist Trap-good food!) within walking distance..and a "real" dinner restaurant also around the corner at Concordia. You can also walk to Salt Pond Bay, my favorite snorkel spot on St. John.
We will definitely be back to Horizons. Now I see why you're booked so quickly in season! Thanks again for a wonderful stay.
I had major surgery March 2015 and after recoup I needed desperatly to get away, go somewhere peaceful and beautiful both for my spirit and as my first trip as a healthy person again. Due to circumstances the only dates I could travel was in August! I can not tell you how hesitant I was, August heat, bugs and on and on.. When I heard Horizons did not have AC I had my reservations. and almost did not book. Thankfully I did! Horizons is built on the side of a mountain over looking the sea with row upon row of open windows . The trade winds blew directly into the house 24/7 providing the most natural A/C I have ever experienced. Never a moment of discomfort, never a moment or regret. For those considering off season rental, go for it! the island is quite, the house is perfect, and the trades are blowing.
thank You Sue
What an amazing stay we had at this place. Being urban dwellers we especially appreciated the outdoor decks on both floors that boasts quite an impressive view. The house itself is well equipped and nicely set up so we felt right at home. As someone who is adverse to air conditioning the air circulation in this place is really wonderful that you do not need AC even in what they consider the hottest month here. I would highly recommend this place!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at the horizons cottage. Sue was a gracious hostess in every way. From hooking us up with a car rental ( awesome Jeep) complete information about the island. That was just the beginning her home is so comfortable we were truly blessed and felt very spoiled. If you have not been to St John, Horizon cottage offers you comfort and the beauty of the island right there out the Windows and onto the 2 tier decks in the back of the cottage! WOW!!
Blessings to all,
Bruce & Elena Cummings
We just (yesterday) came back from Horizons from a 10 day stay. We loved the house, the deck, the location and the sunrises. We were also down there during a full moon which sparkled like diamonds on the water. Sue was amazing as being helpful when needed but always gave us our space. She is a lovely person whose soul seems to be at one with the beauty of St. John. If you are looking for natural beauty mixed with peace and serenity in a well kept home with a million dollar view, Horizons is that place. We will be gong back. Ed St. Jean (NH).
We loved our stay at the Horizons Cottage. Incredible views and cottage was in great shape and clean. Sue made the process so easy and provided a contact to rent a car.
We appreciated having beach chairs, towels, snorkel gear and a cooler available at the cottage.
East end/coral bay is the place to be for relaxing vacation. Close (<3 minutes) to Salt Pond beach and Ram's Head hike. Views of BVIs and st Thomas. Make sure to hit the tourist trap and skinny legs.
We loved our trip and cannot wait to go back. Thank you Sue.
We had a great time at Great Horizons Cottage..spotless clean..all the amenities..including beach gear! GREAT views..2 minute drive to Salt Pond..gorgeous bay..10 minute drive to Coral bay--- Was really nice to be on the Coral Bay side of the island versus busy Cruz Bay.
We had everything we needed for a great vacation. We would MOST definitely rent this cottage again.
We are located on the quiet south east side of the island where the tradewinds blow year round keeping it cool and mosquito free. With Salt Pond Bay and Lameshur Bays within a mile, you won't have to go far to get some of the best snorkeling on the island on secluded beaches. The National Park land is near with lots of hiking trails. We look down on John's Folly Bay and the mouth of Coral Bay with views of the open ocean and lots of the British Virgin Islands.
