Why David Michael chose St John

We love the local side of St John. Everyone is so welcoming in Coral Bay and we feel at home there. The home has a private feel, but so close to town and the beaches.Not to mention we have our own personal ruins in our back yard!!

What makes this villa unique

What we love most about the house is the mornings,and the beautiful sunrise we wake up to everyday over Coral Bay.What a great way to start your day! The deck right off the bedroom provides privacy, and tranquilityTrue relaxation..I like the fact both North Shore and South shore beaches are only 10 min away.Also, In my opinion some of the best restaurants in St John are in Coral Bay only minutes away.

Peaceful and relaxing with all of the amenities!

Daebreak was an amazing experience and in lovely Coral Bay away from the crazy touristy area of Cruz Bay. Locals are so friendly and helpful! We loved sleeping at night to the sound of nature and the cool Caribbean breezes!

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and the Coral Bay area! The house is spacious, very private and peaceful, and has everything you need and more. It's comfortable and clean, and has great views from the upstairs bedroom. Convenient location and easy to find.

David, the owner, was very easy to deal with. He provided us with a lot of useful information and answered all of our questions.

Special thanks to the property managers, Jackie and Tom. They contacted us before the trip to make sure all our questions are answered, and made sure everything was perfect for our arrival. We had a pleasure to meet them in person, and what a wonderful couple! Thank you so much for everything!

We enjoyed every single minute of our vacation, and would definitely stay at Daebreak again.

Decent, but could use a little upkeep.

  • 2 of 5

If you are looking for a 5 star hotel type/room service accommodation, this is not it.

If you are in St John for its nature, beautiful beaches and want to do this on a budget, then DaeBreak could work.

This is our second time renting DaeBreak. Please beware that the last few hundred yards of the road that leads to the house are not paved. I would not attempt it in any type of car but a 4x4 with high ground clearance.


Dealing with the owners is very simple and straight forward.

The new property manager called in advance to make sure all my questions are answered.

A welcome note with local contact numbers was left on the counter.

The house was clean with plenty of towels (beach and bath) prepared for us.

Internet worked perfectly.

Outdoor deck under a beautiful tree always worked great for breakfast or dinners. You would not want to be indoors when the weather is so beautiful.

Kitchen was stocked with plenty of dishes/pots/pans/aluminum foil/plastic wrap/trash bags/etc.

Outdoor grill worked great and all utensils were provided.


Many of the windows do not work and would not close. The screens are not all tight so we had plenty of mosquitoes in the house.

Because windows do not close, you will hear everything that happens around - dogs, donkeys, roosters, neighbors playing music in their houses, tires on the gravel. This may not be a big deal in the afternoon, but it is a bummer at 6am.

Although there are many of fans in the house (ceiling and portable), the upstairs bedroom does get hot by the evening (even with all curtains down) and even with all fans on, it felt very warm.

Downstairs folding couch is broken and can't unfold straight. Sleeping on it was impossible.

A mattress in the bedroom is very soft and bumpy - quite uncomfortable.

There are quite a few things in the house that seem to be held up by a duct tape or not working - the house could use a face lift and some newer furniture.

Great secluded cottage with wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

We loved Daebreak. It is a lovely cottage, secluded and surrounded by nature. With great views from upstairs. It's also just a 40 ft hike up the hill from the backyard to some amazing ruins. Very worth the short hike. The property managers Tom and Jackie are also phenomenal! For those looking for an off the beaten path location you won't do better than this. It's roughly a half in on a dirt road mile (steep in places) so a jeep is a must. You will fall asleep to the sounds of frogs and wake up to the birds singing.

Great place!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you like a quiet place this is it. Beautiful scenery and comfortable house. Definitely like the quiet side of the island. Having a four wheel drive vehicle like a jeep is a must.I will definitely come again. The owner was very responsive and the couple who are the property managers were great.

A great Getaway in Paradise

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house. The wooden floors and ceiling were beautiful. It was plenty big for 2 people and I think with the porch bed and additional outdoor bathroom could comfortably accommodate 3 people. I loved waking up in the morning and lifting my head from the pillow to see Coral Bay. The kitchen had everything we could have needed, and David was sure to have the propane tank for the grill filled before we arrived. David was also available within minutes when we got slightly lost getting to Daebreak. The outdoor shower was great, as was the walk to the ruins. The wrap around deck(s) offered several places to sit depending on the time of the day and how strong the sun was. I loved the privacy of the house, and the proximity to the east end beaches and restaurants. It is a beautiful home.

The house was generally clean, but there were specific areas that need attention: the curtain in the upstairs bathroom needs to be washed; the floor underneath the queen bed needs to be vacuumed or swept; the ropes on the blinds in the bedroom need to be untangled. Once I know these things are taken care of, I would definitely recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Dear Barbara, Thank you for taking the time to write this nice review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I wanted to let you know that I hired new property managers and they have already addressed the issues that you mentioned. I am so excited to finally have someone taking care of the house who really cares and pays attention to detail. It is so hard being back here in New England and not being able to address some of the important issues that get overlooked but I am confident that the house will be in tip top shape now that Tom and Jackie are at the helm. I look forward to hearing from you again soon and hope that if you come back to St. John that you will stay with us again at Daebreak. Best, David
