Perfect island getaway
Orchid Cottage was the perfect place for our family to spend time on St. John...immaculately clean, comfortable, convenient to northern beaches, and with beautiful views in the midst of the National Park. Tennis was an added bonus. Susanne and Bill were helpful and welcoming.
Superb spot.. remember its the national park though!
Honestly one of the best finds on VRBO.. we used both floors, left early doors each day and were back each evening as lets be frank, the beaches are just superb. The place is great.. the showers are great.. the kitchen is great for what you need. There is condiments, herbs spices, all you can think of. Beach towels and chairs, even tennis rackets.. though I took my own. The owners are just great too which is a real plus. Remember its the national park though so nature is everywhere... including the bugs you may not like.. but spray up and you will be fine!
This property is beautiful, peaceful and private, yet close to beaches and cruz bay. We have stayed in upper level 3 times (never used lower level) and we hope to stay here again. Upper level perfect for a couple and maybe one child (there isn't much privacy or room though, so only good if child young).
Perfect place for our adventures!
Our main goal in visiting St. John is the National Park and Orchid Cottage sits right in the middle of all the park main attractions; its beaches and trails. We were able to snorkel 7 days in a row due to its convenient location and the views our eyes opened to every morning confirmed we were in paradise. Orchid Cottage is well equipped for easy living. A lovely place to spend as much time as possible. Thank you, Suzanne and Bill for sharing your heaven with us.
Wonderful stay at Orchid Cottage
My husband and I stayed at Orchid Cottage for a week (late March into early April.) The location was excellent. Centrally located to beaches, Cruz Bay or Coral Bay. The views are just wonderful and the cool breeze from being up in the hills was a welcome relief after a hot day on the south side of St. John. We played tennis on the adjacent court every day - most of the time in the morning, but the court is nicely shaded for play in the late afternoon. The cottage is very sweet and perfect for a couple. I must say it was extremely satisfactory and better than I had imagined from the pictures. Hosts Bill and Suzanne were very helpful although we only saw them on the day we arrived and the morning we departed. Definitely need to have a vehicle as the cottage is a ways off the major road. Also wanted to add that because of the slope of the driveway and entry, it could be difficult access to the cottage for anyone with mobility issues. I feel very lucky we found this rental on VRBO!
Loved our two visits to Orchid Cottage
My husband and I stayed at Orchid Cottage two years in a row. It is a lovely, quiet place to call home for a week on St. John. I LOVE the outdoor shower and the amazing views. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking, and the patio with grill is a great place to eat outside. Also, a lovely spot just to lounge and read. Suzanne and Bill are wonderful, thoughtful hosts, who will help out with any problems. (I inadvertently locked us out one day, and Suzanne came from Cruz Bay to our rescue!) With all the rain this past year, the plants around the cottage were in all their glory, adding to the charm. I recommend it highly to a couple if you want to be close to Cruz Bay and beaches, yet in a quiet spot. Also, if you play tennis. The courts look great.
