|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Angels' Roost is located high on a mountainside in Coral Bay in peaceful and secluded Upper Carolina. You will soon find yourself relaxing in your spacious and comfortable villa surrounded by tropical foliage and colorful flowers.
The panoramic view of the surrounding mountains covered with lush tropical foliage descends to the valley below and the ever changing azure waters of the Caribbean.
We had a wonderful stay at Angel’s Roost and we have the best of memories about it. The house is comfortable and beautiful; the views are breathtaking. However, above all – the hosts are incredibly friendly and helpful. Thank You Jane and Larry :)
My husband and I were in desparate need of a warm,welcoming place to escape the PA winter this year.We were very fortunate to find Jane and Larry's Angels Roost. Private,clean, with lush surroundings and view of Coral Bay to enjoy with your morning coffee! This studio apartment has all the amenities needed to have a great time on St. John.Felt like coming home after each day's adventures to beaches,hiking, seeing the ruins. Close to grocery and several places to eat out. Jane and Larry are very special hosts and we felt it a privilege to share their home on this beautiful island! Hope to get back some day!
Everything about Angel's Roost is perfect. The view of Coral Bay is gorgeous from high in the Upper Carolina hills. Sitting at the outside table, enjoying our morning coffee was our favorite time of day, put your feet up on the railing, snap a photo and your friends will disown you :-) This was our second year here. We stumbled on the property by chance as the tanned owners were dining in a restaurant where we both work in the Northeast and happily produced a card with their rental information. Our week of choice was open in 2014, thanks to a last minute school vacation week cancellation, and it set the stage for what is now a yearly trek to the Island of St. John and especially the lazy, eclectic Coral Bay side.
Jane and Larry provided us with everything we would ever need. You can tell they love their home. The personal touches are everywhere and it is SPOTLESS and seriously comfortable. We love the walk-in tiled shower, clean well appointed kitchen and beautiful arched doorways that lead to the deck. I had a daily commitment to work online and the WiFI never had a hiccup. We would watch the Weather Channel every morning as New England got dumped on with record breaking snow, so lucky to be where we were.. Every day we would go to the nearby beaches. The Upper Carolinas are a short drive away from all the white sandy beaches you would ever hope for. On the way, stop at the smoothie stand and get free rum in your smoothie - why not!? Every night, we would spend time in the area bars & restaurants, rubbing tanned elbows with tourists and islanders alike. Everyone is so friendly.
I would be remiss if I didn't write more about how wonderful Jane and Larry are as hosts - and great friends. Their knowledge of the island and its inhabitants is unparalleled. They are warm and friendly, and we consider them role models on how to live on the island and enjoy life. As other reviewers have mentioned, Jane & Larry live on property, but you wouldn't know it. If we needed or wanted to chat, we simply rang the bell and they would appear. If only life were always that simple! We know we'll see them "up here" in the Summer months, but really look forward to our next visit "down there" in the Winter. Book this property, and you'll go back year after year, and you really can't give a better recommendation than that!
Angels' Roost is the perfect apartment on the perfect island of St. John. If you enjoy ocean views, soft warm breezes, star lit nights, peepers, a comfortable bed, impeccable cleanliness, privacy, and friendly hosts, this is the place for you. Known as "regulars", we arrange a year ahead of time to make sure we can return the next year. You are minutes to the North Shore beaches, hiking trails, one of a kind restaurants and shops. The snorkeling, exploring plantation ruins, and 4 wheeling are exceptional on St. John. Once you enjoy the natural beauty plus comfort, you will want to go back.
I met the owner Jane at a beach the first year we came to St John. We stopped to check out Angels Roost and fell in love. This year was our sixth year and we are already booked for next Jan.
The minute I walk in we feel we are at home in our home away from home. We love the open concept and view from any part of the apartment. There are 3 large, double screened doors looking out over Coral Bay and the mountain . I have read where many do not want to rent where owners live on premise. I disagree. Larry and Jane might live above but are invisible unless you need something. There is a private entrance for renters and bell to ring if you should need anything.
Location on Upper Carolina is 10 minutes from North Shore, 5 minutes from Coral Bay restaurants. It is close to East side and Salt Pond.The landscaping and flowers are carefully tended by owners.
We cook breakfast and every other supper in. The grill is wonderful and kitchen is stocked with everything needed. Filtered water is a nice bonus.
We are big Packer fans and enjoy watching the playoff games from the living room. WiFi and I phone reception are great.
One criteria I have is cleanliness. Angel Roost is spotless with attention to detail.
I love the washer and dryer located off porch and even bring less clothes and do laundry every couple days.
When we return from the beach we jump in the shower, big enough for 2 . We have appetizers and drinks out on large wrap around porch. The only thing I can think of to improve would be a lounge chair on the lovely deck.
I love the breezes you get being high up and have never felt the need for air conditioning. There are 3 large ceiling fans.
We have rented large villas with family that had pools and hot tubs. We never utilized them much in Jan. Angels Roost is perfect island getaway for my husband and I.
I highly recommend this tranquil, comfortable perfectly located apartment.
You can't get better than this! Georgous views, completely comfortable, great owners that welcome you with open arms! This is a must go! You will not be disappointed!!
