Overview

About the property

2 Bed/2 Bath, 3rd BR Loft, Stunning View of Coral Bay and Beyond

Look no further than Casa YaYa for your perfect St. John retreat. The moment you enter, the view will take your breath away. Casa YaYa boasts one of the prettiest views on the island. Located on the western hillside overlooking beautiful Coral Bay, we are located in a quiet area with wonderful breezes and full sun until mid to late afternoon. If privacy is what you desire, this is the villa for you.

If you ever decide to come inside, the Caribbean decor and comfort will have you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. This one level villa (with 2nd story loft) is unique for its large 10 foot openings along the entire east side allowing beautiful sunshine and cooling breezes to invade the villa. The view from each room is unparalleled. It boasts a large great room and kitchen. The two master bedrooms are located on opposite sides of the great room for maximum privacy. Each air conditioned bedroom features a king sized bed and affords the same spectacular view as the great room. Both bathrooms have outdoor showers that are highly desired in this tropical climate. The 2nd story loft is open to the great room and features a queen sized bed and is accessed by a traditional style loft ladder.

Enjoy the privacy that this villa has to offer while lounging in the newly constructed 20x12x5 pool. Sunbathe on the newly expanded sun deck. Unwind in one of the hammock swings. All of this is possible as you take in the view of Coral Bay, Tortola and the Sir Francis Drake Passage to Virgin Gorda. Don't forget to watch the sunrise and moonrise, which are visible from every room in the house.

Located in Coral Bay, where many of the locals choose to live, we are in close proximity to comfortable island dining whether you are looking for the very casual to more upscale. Situated between the more quiet eastern beaches and the world famous north shore beaches, Casa YaYa is only minutes from each. Hiking trails abound and are also only minutes away. A night out in Cruz Bay, dining and shopping, is just a short (but curvy) 20-30 minute drive on island roads where speeds are rarely over 20 miles per hour. The island is 2/3 National Park land and therefore protected from over development.

Our On Island Coordinator and Staff will ensure that your stay is comfortable and that your needs are met.

Casa YaYa will not disappoint and will leave you dreaming of your return!

About Cindy Humphreys

We are landlocked midwesterners who have fallen in love with St John and the 'island life.' We love for others to discover the true beauty of St. John and believe that Casa YaYa is the perfect place for this to occur.

Cindy Humphreys purchased this villa in 2012

Why Cindy Humphreys chose St John

From the moment we stepped through the door, we were mesmerized by 'the view.' We looked at several properties and this is the only one that left us eager to return! We are confident that the comfortable surrounds afforded here will complement the scenic beauty of Casa YaYa.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Casa YaYa was even better than expected! We loved staying on the East side of the island where it was quieter with less traffic, yet there were still plenty of hikes, beaches and restaurants close by. What a perfect deck to relax on and enjoy the views. Being able to open all the sliders and let in the breezes every day was also fantastic! The owner, Cindy, and the greeter on island, Gwen, were both very helpful, nice and so easy to communicate with. Pick Casa YaYa for your next trip to St. John!

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We have been coming to St. John since 1980 and must say we liked it much more then when no one else knew about it and we had the island all to ourselves. We have chosen to stay in the Coral Bay area every visit except two. Reason why? The views are fantastic. A lot of people ask us why we don't stay closer to the water or near Cruz Bay. My favorite things in the world are oceans and mountains. This house has everything that I love - views of the eastern end of St. John and the British V.I.. This is the only house we have stayed at that has a warm pool. All the others are chilly. The fact that you have a pool cover allows for this. Great communication with the owners and Gwen (house manager on site). Really shouldn't be writing this because we don't want any more people coming here.

Great villa with amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The view does not get old! Very clean and comfortable villa. Loved the deck and the pool. Beds were very comfortable. Not sure how many hours I spent on the deck just staring out over the east end of St. John and the BVI's... couldn't get enough! Perfect house for a perfect vacation. Definitely hope to go back!

Fantastic Villa in Coral Bay

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this place or the views enough justice. After a very long day of traveling, we were immediately blown away after entering Casa Yaya to see it in person. The deck is much larger in person, and the views of Coral Bay can't be put into words. We loved the laid back vibe in Coral Bay as opposed to Cruz Bay. From the deck at night, we enjoyed the faint sounds of bands/music down in Coral Bay while watching the full moon rise over the water. In the morning, the sunrises were just as enjoyable as we had our morning coffee. Then, we'd hit up Triple B for breakfast or pick up sandwiches at Pickles in Paradise before our short drive to the North Shore beaches for the day. The bed and pillows were super comfortable after a full day in the sun and just the right amount of Painkillers! Casa Yaya was the perfect spot for us - can't wait to go back and relax here again some day!

Beautiful, clean property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean property with scenic views and awesome breezes!! The process of securing the home, arriving and leaving was seamless. The home is located on the far side of the island from the ferry/Cruz Bay, but there is a grocery and restaurant nearby if you prefer the seclusion. We would highly recommend this property!

A beautiful Villa and unbelievable view of so many islands.

  • 5 of 5

There was four of us that stayed at Casa YaYa and we absolutely loved it there. The villa is very private with the two master bedroom suites with outside showers- one on each side- both of them great.

The whole house is very comfortable with plenty of room. We spent most of our time outside by the pool enjoying the breathtaking view. It had everything we could possibly need including comfortable lounge chairs & pool floats. There was also coolers, snorkel equip. noodles and chairs to take to the beach- which there are so many near by.

The location is very close to everything- including many bars, excellent restaurants, grocery stores and shopping.

Gwen (property manager) was very helpful and told us to call her if there was anything we needed. Also the owner Cindy was in touch with us by email and was very accommodating. Everything was perfect.

We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone.
