Perfect Vacation Retreat for a Couple Seeking Privacy in Paradise
We have stayed on St. John many times in the past but usually in Cruz Bay. We wanted to try Coral Bay for our Getaway this year and Harbor View did not disappoint! It is in the perfect location, close to great restaurants as well as trails and beaches. We felt as if we were on an island by ourselves when at "our cottage", yet we did not have to travel far to enjoy the beauty of St. John.
The pool and deck were a delightful retreat after a day swimming, snorkeling and hiking at various beaches and trails. Since we ate in most nights, the grill and kitchen helped a great deal. A big bonus was the washer and dryer (thanks to those who left detergent!) as we were there for 12 days.
The views from the deck are stunning as are the soothing breezes. We truly enjoyed every moment of our stay and can't wait to come back.
Amazing deck, but could use some TLC and thoughtful touches.
We stayed at Harbor View in June 2017 for our honeymoon. We decided on this cottage due to the outdoor space, grill and private pool. We LOVED our time on St. John but had mixed feelings on the property.
Pros: The cottage is well located in Coral Bay, a short walk down a steep hill to Indigo and Skinny Legs. The view is spectacular, and the porch is perfect for everything from lounging to eating meals. The pool is big enough and we spent time on the floats provided. The manager, Jane and greeter, Fred were both very nice and responsive it was helpful to follow Fred to the house while getting used to driving on the left. The property has beach chairs and a cooler, the chairs are the backpack type. We did not experience any of the ant problems that other reviewers noted, and saw traps throughout the house. Jane was very nice and accommodated our request to check out a few hours late on the day we left, which was a huge help.
Cons: Overall, we felt like the house hasn't been particularly well maintained and is worn - the blue canopy on the porch has come undone from the rails and flaps around in the breeze and has ripped in a few places which is noisy. AC is only in the bedroom, but cools the room down with shut doors. There is peeling paint around the property and rust on some of the amenities (grill, windows, shower). The utensils in the kitchen are sparse and shoddy (grill tongs have been repaired with a piece of wire) and there's not many pots or pans. A tree has overgrown and blocks the harbor view from the pool and should be trimmed down so that it looks like the pictures on this site. There was also no bar soap, shampoo or conditioner provided. It seems this property is solely for renters (from our impression it doesn't seem like it's a vacation property that has owners that visit regularly) and therefore things exist in order to to check boxes for potential customers while browsing (grill, pool, king size bed). We were looking for a bit more luxury on our honeymoon - the sheets weren't comfortable, the bedspread was stained and worn so if you're celebrating something and want to feel pampered, you may want to look elsewhere. We don't regret our choice, but would have valued more thoughtful touches.
Tips: As others noted there are early morning animal noises. We are early risers but if you're a partier or late sleeper take note. The only showers are outdoors and there is no dishwasher. Buy ice, there's only one cube tray provided.
Awesome location and unbeatable views of Coral Bay.
Well appointed with cooler and beach chairs. Not much else needed in paradise!
Short walk to Skinny Legs and Indigo Grill at the bottom of Seagrape Hill. Felt adventurous our last night and grabbed a flash light. Little bit of a workout back up the hill but doable.
The house is relatively new and has nice views of coral bay. It is on the opposite side of the island from the nicest and most popular beaches. By jeep it took us about 15 minutes on rt 20 to get to Trunk Bay. A little less for cinnamon and about 25 mins to Cruz Bay (town center). There is plently of hiking, restaurants, bars, etc on the coral bay side. It is a little more rugged on that end of the island. The house could use a few more items like better pots and pans, and a better corkscrew for wine. They do provide a cooler and two beach chairs which was nice. We didnt use the pool at all as it was a little cool for us and we prefered swimming at the beach. There were also an abundance of ants that we could not seem to get rid of. They are very small and didnt bother us much. We sprayed a few times and they were gone for a day. Furniture could use a refresh. The mgmt co is very responsive. They meet you at the ferry and escort you to the house. We were running low on propane for the grill and it was delivered the next day after a simple text. Overall it was a good deal for the price but we might try to book earlier next time and spend a little more to be on the north shore.
My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon & we're already missing the harbor view cottage! This cottage was the absolute PERFECT spot for our honeymoon. The view is incredible - we spent many sunrises and sunsets taking it all in. The house is exactly as described in pictures and perfect for two people. Jane was so helpful and responsive to my emails - she was a great property manager to work with. She had a coworker meet us at our rental car agency and we followed him to the house where he gave us all of the necessary information that we needed. The house is in the perfect spot in Coral Bay - it's close to restaurants/bars and the grocery store. I can't recommend this property enough - definitely stay here!!
Perfection in the sun!
We have just had our second stay at Harbor View....and once again it was amazing. There is so much to love about this little gem....location, views, deck, pool, convenience, it can just go on and on. We found it difficult on some days to leave and go exploring or beaching because it really is heaven right there. There is a reason that we have been visiting St John for 18 years and Harbor View is yet just another reason. Until next year, Harbor View!
Perfect getaway for couples or honeymooners! High-end furnishings and excellent water views! Beaches are less than a 10 minute scenic drive.
