New Moon Escape was amazing
My wife and I stayed here for a week. We were the second users since the hurricanes. The location is perfect for great access to all the beaches and hiking trails. The New Moon team was great to work with and we really enjoyed our time in the home. The pool was so nice to have at the end of a hot day. We really enjoyed our time there and will be back!
Thank you so much for visiting the island and being wonderful guests at New Moon Escape. The island needs support from everyone right now and you helped, so thank you for doing your part! The home and island are so beautiful and we are glad you got to experience that first hand. Hope to see you again!
Lush tropical gardens with large lawn surround house.Well equipped kitchen, good sized living area. Bedroom very small, king size bed fills room can only access bed from one side, no room for side tables or lamps.Needs better lighting in kitchen and livingroom, since no cable or internet yet, we like to read but that was difficult.Clean well kept property, flat driveway easy access. Island is rebounding, visit St John!
Thank you for visiting St John and supporting the island! You made a difference! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and we will work on the lighting. Good news is High Speed Internet is back! So movies after a long day at the beach are possible!!
Lush, peaceful escape
New Moon was a comfortable, charming home base for our first visit to St. John. The lush landscaping was beautiful. The screened porch was perfect for morning coffee and evening drinks (while listening to the incredible chorus of nature's night-time sounds). The pool and hammock were appreciated after days spent exploring. And we enjoyed looking for the lizards around the property, and the goats, donkeys and chickens along the dirt road. In addition, Jared was a very responsive host.
As others have noted, this home is close to Coral Bay, including a couple of groceries and restaurants, and not far from beautiful beaches and trails. We especially loved Salt Pond Bay and the Ram Head and Drunk Bay trails there, and Maho and Francis beaches on the north side. But on St. John, beauty and adventure is everywhere!
We love the beauty and adventure that is here around every corner and we are so glad you got to experience that and recognize the tremendous beauty of this little island. So glad you had a great stay and we would love to have you back!
Peaceful, private and very island green
New Moon Escape proved to be a great island home for our wonderful 10th trip to St John. We appreciated the private feel, screened patio, pool in the afternoons, all the trees & plants and the listed amenities functioned as promised. Clearly the road has more than it's share of bumps, but slow and steady makes it a non-issue. It's very apparent the owners have a lot of pride in the property and work hard to keep it maintained. Thank you for sharing your wonderful island escape. Dennis & Linda Lovett, Riverside, CA
Yes, the property is well loved and has served as a comfortable, relaxing, inspiring, nature oasis and home base for many family vacations. Our company loves taking care of this beautiful home for the very kind owners and loves making tourists feel welcomed and relaxed. Thanks again and hope to see you soon.
Worth the driving adventure!
The value of this beautifully-landscaped villa made the insides-jarring drive worthwhile. The kitchen is well-equipped with up-to-date appliances. It was a pleasure to relax on the screen porch or the pool deck, with the outdoor shower and pool welcome refreshers after a day of exploring the island and its beaches. The location is also convenient to Love City Mini-Mart, dining.and the dinghy dock!
We are so glad you loved your stay and were up for the adventure. St John is an amazing little island with so much to see and explore and you experienced it fully! Thank you for being such wonderful guests!
Fully enjoyed our 6 days at New Moon Escape!
We loved New Moon's location, cleanliness, amenities & it's all-around character and coziness. The property is beautifully landscaped and having the pool & outdoor shower gave us the perfect excuse to lay low, play yahtzee, read excessively & enjoy a down day after being on the go so much. Thank you to Jared for everything- it was all easy & smoothe (except that one "road" called King's Hill. I assure you, it's not a road but we somehow made it. Don't do it. It's a donkey trail, I'm almost positive.) That being said, we loved every bit of our trip & will definitely return.
Thanks for being such great guests and for the nice words. King Hill road is actually a federal (USA) highway if you can believe it. Makes the road to New Moon Escape seem like a cakewalk. I always warn people not to use GPS to navigate here because it will sometimes send them down that "highway" to get into Coral Bay. Looking forward to seeing you when you come back
New Moon Escape is located in a lush surrounding, just under one mile from the coast. Perfect for bird-watching by day and stargazing at night. From the villa you can easily access the Virgin Islands National Park. Nearby White sand beaches, hiking and water sports such as sailing, snorkeling, diving and just plain laying on the beach. Coral Bay is just under one mile away, with many shops, restaurants, bars and access to an array of adventurous activities. The still-pristine island of St. John is the smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands and lies just 3 miles east of St. Thomas and a mile from the nearest of the British Virgin Islands. Nearly two-thirds of the island is national park, with forests and nature trails for your enjoyment. Nature lovers will be amazed by St. John's ecological diversity.
This home is located off the beaten path and is accessed by a dirt road 3/4 mile long
