About Tim Graham

Buying Three Birds was a dream come true. We've vacationed in the Carribean for 25 years and never found a more beautiful spot than St. John. We're honored to share Three Birds and St. John with you.

Tim Graham purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Tim Graham chose Coral Bay

This home has it all, the views, the breeze, the tranquility and of course location. It's the perfect spot from which to explore St. John. Close to world famous North Shore Beaches, and popular South Shore Salt Pond. Easy access to Cruz Bay, Coral Bay, and close to off-the-beaten-path locations, East End, Skinny Legs and Miss Lucy's.

What makes this cottage unique

Three Birds is Carribean style home that catches the views, the sunshine, and a beautiful breeze. Sitting on the national park border, it is surrounded by bougainvillea and sugar birds.

I just stayed at this house for 6 nights with my husband and 1 year old daughter. The house is cozy and clean with spectacular views and deck spaces. It was a great home base for exploring the different beaches and hiking trails. We mostly ate at restaurants in and around Coral Bay and found several that we enjoyed. The house was well equipped with chairs, beach towels and snorkel gear. The mountain breezes were incredible and we loved waking up to the sounds of birds and the buzz of hummingbirds... felt like we were in a treehouse! The owners and property manager were very friendly and checked in with us several times, as well as left a welcome package and drinking water. Highly recommend staying here! We are sad we are home, and would love to come back in the future.

Good People

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked a week at Three Birds during Presidents week in February to have a babymoon and celebrate my 40th birthday! Due to the Zika Virus we had to cancel 4 weeks prior to leaving. We were absolutely devastated to have to cancel our wonderful vacation and in addition to that the allotted time period given by HomeAway had already past and we had already paid for the house in full.

We called Tim, the owner to explain the situation. He was flexible and understanding given our situation despite the fact that he knew in the short amount of time he would be unable to book his house for one of the busiest weeks on St. John . We were pleasantly surprised by his willingness to work with us and gave us half of our money back and half to use as a deposit at a later time.

We are so looking forward to staying at Three Birds after our baby is born! We recommend renting from Tim, he is a great guy who does the right thing :)

Best views in Coral Bay!

We've rented in Coral Bay many times... this is a great house with spectacular view and a constant breeze that eliminates the blood hour... no mosquitos! New beach chairs, towels, snorkel gear and multiple coolers... this is important stuff. We ran out of gas for the stove... and Deborah was at the house in 15 minutes. We'll be back! Thanks Deborah and Tim

"Simply Paradise" it truly is!!! We absolutely loved everything about our vacation here!! This home is charming and the views from the back porch AND the front porch are spectacular!!!! We thought we would miss air conditioning but the cross breeze was more than sufficient and so nice to get fresh air!!! We loved the open air feeling of the master shower!!! All the restaurant recommendations were fabulous! Anything and everything we needed the owners were immediately available to help and answer questions. This side of the island is now our favorite!!! Quiet, quaint and beautiful! And of course the bays here are absolutely GORGEOUS!! We have been to St John twice before and this is by far our favorite location and home!! We have stayed in many rentals and never before have we had the attention and help these owners provided.

The Best

  • 5 of 5

If you are like us & don't want the golf courses,hot tubs & all the people, then the Three Birds is the best place to go. The cottage is simple but perfect for an island get away. The views outstanding, the breezes are wonderful on the deck & porch. The location of the cottage is such that you feel like you are totally isolated. Driving on St. John is always an adventure but we were met at the docks by Debra (a great person)who drove us to our car rental & then led us to the grocery store & then to Three Birds. Perfect! Owners are the best for help & information. Hope we can return again. And if you want a great meal ($$) go to the Aqua Bistro in Coral Bay--the best!
