Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Bay House was completed in 2000 and is similar in design to the popular villa One Particular Harbor, with both homes having been built by the same designer/builder. From the parking area of this 2-level home you ascend stone stairs to the upper level, which houses the kitchen, dining and living rooms and half bath. Three screened sliding glass doors in the great room open to dazzling harbor views and a 420 sq. ft. wraparound covered deck. Interior stairs take you down to the two equal sized, air-conditioned bedrooms and the bedroom deck on the lower level. Every area of the great room has an enticing water view, and every bedroom looks out at Coral Bay.

The 20 x 10 foot pool and the sun deck are located at mid level on the southeast side of the house and enjoy sun from morning to mid afternoon, plus lovely harbor views and cooling breezes.

CARIBBEAN VILLAS’ COMMENTS. Whether from the great room, covered deck, sun deck or pool, the Bay House offers a “postcard from the islands” view of Coral Bay Harbor and the East End of St John. This enticing location is high enough to pick up the cooling breezes blowing off the ocean, yet close enough to the harbor to feel that you’re a part of the nautical scene spread below you. The upper deck is well above ground level but the tight railings on all levels provide good safety for children and the two adjoining bedrooms on the lower floor are also good for a family with children. Coral Bay is St John’s largest harbor and the harbor is usually full of cruising sailboats from everywhere, along with the colorful Caribbean sailors who crew these boats. This nautical essence gives Coral Bay a romantic and out of the ordinary character that our guests seem to greatly enjoy. With its superb harbor views and warm summer breezes, Bay House also has a romantic flair, especially at night and this is a good choice for honeymooners and couples. Bay House is also a fine home for couples looking for an appealing yet affordable villa.

Its location is perfect - a three minute walk to Coco Lobo shopping, Aqua Bistro restaurant and Lily's Market. Another minute walk gets you to Sweet Plantains and Island Blues restaurants and twelve more minutes walk, (three minute drive) takes you to Donkey Diner and Skinny Legs restaurants and shopping. Overall, if you’re a devotee of Coral Bay (and many of our guests are) this is an excellent location, a lovely home, and a very good price.

LIVING/DINING/KITCHEN. The living room is furnished with comfortable furniture for four and is equipped with a cable TV/VCR/DVD and a stereo system with a CD player. WiFi is available. Screened sliding glass doors provide picturesque views from anywhere on the top floor and ceiling fans and the trade winds keep the interior cool.

Bay House offers a choice of interior or exterior dining. The inside dining table seats 4, while both upper and lower decks offer dining for 4 with scenic harbor views. There is a gas grill, cooler and beach chairs available for guests.

The kitchen is well-equipped with a stainless steel four-burner gas stove and oven, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, blender, cookware, dinnerware and a telephone. A washer/dryer, iron and ironing board, are also included.

BEDROOMS. The bedrooms are equal in size, one with a king bed and the other with 2 twin beds that convert to a king. Both bedrooms are air-conditioned and have tiled baths with showers. Each bedroom has screened sliding glass doors that open on to the lower deck offering cooling trade winds and harbor views.

LOCATION. To get to the Bay House you drive from Cruz Bay to Coral Bay (Coral Bay - Western hillside), and turn onto the scenic harbor road that runs along the west side of Coral Bay. Just after you pass the Aqua Bistro restaurant you make a short climb up the hill that overlooks Coral Bay Harbor and you’re home. Bay House is set in a peaceful and convenient spot with classic St John views – sailboats floating on a coral sea bordered by lush green hills. The view sweeps more than 180 degrees, from the northern hills surrounding Coral Bay, over Coral Bay Harbor to the East End of St. John and then southeast out to the Caribbean and the British Virgin Islands.

Coral Bay is St. John’s “other” community. It is a colorful, laid back and friendly small town. The name Coral Bay also refers to the neighborhood that surrounds St. John’s largest bay (Coral Bay).

The delightful National Park beaches at Salt Pond Bay and Lameshur Bay are a 10 minute drive, and it’s a very scenic 20-30 minute drive over Bordeaux Mountain into Cruz Bay, all on paved roads. For restaurants and bars in the Coral Bay area, you can walk to the Aqua Bisto, Sweet Plantains or Island Blues Restaurants and Caribbean inspired shops, or drive 2-10 minutes to 6 other restaurants, gas and groceries.

Great views and convenient for a Coral Bay vacation.

  • 4 of 5

This house is right in Coral Bay a short distance from Dolphin Market and Aqua Bistro. It is perfect for couples or a group of 4 with two large bedrooms with on suite baths. The views of the harbor are wonderful, and the pool is refreshing after days at the beach or out exploring. If you're looking for a place to relax and take things easy, then this is the place. The arrival and departure arrangements were the easiest we've ever had. Terri makes sure that everything is as hassle-free as possible and is just fabulous at making sure things are taken care of. We recommend without hesitation.

Loved this Villa and Coral Bay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting the USVI. We loved the location of the Villa, right in Coral Bay. We could easily walk to the plaza down the hill which had a grocery store, restaurant, shops, and ATM (although the walk back, up a very steep hill, might be difficult for some). Coral Bay did not feel crowded, like it did in Cruz Bay. The Villa itself was very clean and comfortable. We cooked several meals in the kitchen, which had all necessary pot/ pans and tools. Our family of four slept well at night. The decks had incredible views, lovely breezes, and our kids enjoyed the pool. We visited several beaches, did some snorkeling, and went on a few hikes, all within 15-20 minutes drive. If we ever return to St. John, we would definitely choose this Villa again!

What a view!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Bay House was very well maintained and spacious for a big family of 4. All of us are six feet plus and we had plenty of room without feeling like we were in each-others space. It had all the amenities you would ever need for cooking and making drinks. The pool was awesome. We took a dip every morning and every evening. When not at one of 39 beaches, we spent most of our time on the pool and upper decks. All I can say is WHAT A BREEZE! All day and all night the cooling trade-winds blew. We enjoyed coffee in the morning and dinners in the evenings out there. The owner and management company were a pure joy to work with when setting up our recent stay. We loved it so much so that we are already planning our next stay!

Perfect house

  • 5 of 5

Bay House was perfect. Great location on Coral bay. The house was well maintained and had everything we needed, including beach chairs, towels and a cooler. The location was great, just up the hill from three restaurants and the grocery store, made for an easy walk to dinner if we chose to go out. Highly recommend the Carribean Oasis restaurant. The location allowed us to sit on our porch and enjoy the great local music from the nearby bar. There are some very talented musicians on St. John! The outdoor space is beautiful with the covered porch and the pool deck. The property manager was great. As first timers to St. John, she gave us great advice for snorkeling and the best times to se the more popular beaches. Thanks Terry! We had a wonderful week and will definitely be back to St. John and Bay House.

If You Could Only Bottle This Breeze

  • 4 of 5

I am sadly writing this on the drive back to Connecticut. Bay House was truly lovely. It was our 3rd time visiting St John and first time renting this particular villa. The view of Coral Bay is arresting and you have opportunities throughout the villa to experience it from the balconies. The rooms are painted blue and white - very soothing. The beds were quite comfy and we arrived to beautifully arranged linen in both rooms, fresh flowers in the kitchen window and on the dining table. The kitchen was well-appointed with everything you need, including a grill right on the deck. I love tiled flooring and the villa is tiled throughout. Our 3- and 6-year old sons loved coming back from the beach to play in the pool, play the checkers set that was there, and looking out for goats! Pristine beaches were a cool 20 minutes drive away - our faves are Maho, Jumbie, and a worthwhile trail hike to Leinester. Right at the bottom of the villa is the Crabby Shack where my hubby was able to rent a kayak and take our 6-year old out for $30 for 2 hours. Excellent experience. Then 6-minutes from the villa is Carolina's Corral where I was able to take our 3-year old for a 45-minute donkey ride for $25 - he was ecstatic! Fave restaurant in Coral Bay is Miss Lucy's - 15 minutes up on the same main road as the villa. Faves in Cruz Bay - Across the Street ( wonderful fish tacos and onion rings & drinks!!) and Ocean Grill in Mongoose Grill - wonderful everything!! The most beautiful part of our weeklong stay at Bay House was the incomparable sea breeze we got - we never used the AC. Between the view and the breeze - it was divine. Terry, the property manager was gracious and patient as we endured a 2-hour Budget rental car fiasco and met us when we eventually got to our meet up point for her to guide us to the villa. She was the tight balance of attentive and responsive without being intrusive. Thank you!!
