A wonderful retreat. Convenient location. Friendly hosts. Everything we needed, plus more.
Inner Beauty / Estate Eden provided a wonderful retreat during our vacation in St. John. Very convenient location for all of the snorkeling and hiking we enjoyed during our stay. The house was comfortable and well-kept, with some engaging artistic touches and high ceilings to avoid feeling cramped. AC in the bedroom was very pleasant. We loved all the ceiling fans in the evening. Also, little things like the porch table for gear and the clothesline were daily conveniences.
A good TV and speaker system, as well as the Amazon Prime video account, enabled us to kick back and enjoy a movie every evening after dinner. In the mornings we put on YouTube coral reef videos. Little things, but fun.
Very human, friendly hosts; always enjoyed encounters with them coming to and from the house. Mark and Mark were available when needed, but not intrusive.
We are already looking forward to our return to Inner Beauty / Estate Eden. It had everything we needed, plus more. Thanks so much to Mark & Mark!!!

Perfect little paradise
Our stay at Inner Beauty was perfect for us- quiet, beautiful and comfortable. Mark and Mark were lovely hosts and provided everything we needed. Loved it!
Great location, beautiful setting!
This place is a wonderful retreat in Coral Bay. Easy access to all the beaches on the east side of the island. And all the restaurants in Coral Bay are 5 minutes or less away. It is laid back eclectic St John living at it's best. Set in a lush garden setting the home is exactly as shown and was immaculately clean, with all the amenities one would need to self cater if you choose to including a nice gas grill. We highly recommend this place and look forward to another opportunity to stay here. The hosts were most welcoming and available for any questions but we hardly saw them. We LOVE St. John with all it's quirkiness. It has immense beauty both above and below the water, friendly people (and donkeys!), unspoiled beaches with few crowds, and some very nice restaurants. If you are looking for a perfect authentic Caribbean experience, you cannot beat Coral Bay!
Spacious, comfortable and convenient
We stayed at the unit between Dec 24 and Dec 31. There were three of us - we (the parents) and our 15-year-old son, who slept in the living room. The apartment is very spacious, there was plenty of room for the three of us to be absolutely comfortable. The apartment is unusually well stocked, there were even first aid items and sun screen lotions. In general, all the details are extremely thought out. The beach is within a short walking distance but it isn't well taken care of so I would not consider it as a bonus. The location is very convenient for staying in Coral Bay. It is a quarter of a mile to Skinny Legs and the grill place. East End beaches are very close and it is less than 15 minutes to Maho Bay. The garden is lovely. There is a smart tv with netflix and Amazon Prime, which we used. Wi-fi works great. Really, the only complaint we had is that one night there was a truck parked in the next house and in the middle of the night the owner left it running for what seemed forever before driving off. My husband even got up and went to see what was that terrible racket. But, as I said, this only happened once. Everything else was great.
Convenient and everything we needed
We stayed for 5 days while we were looking at real estate and meeting with architects to build a home on our land in St. John. The space was comfortable and very well outfitted for the two of us. We would definitely stay again.
Great stay, great owners
We (my wife and I) spent 7 days at 'Inner Beauty' run by Mark...it was great. This is a quiet, very clean and relaxing place to stay. The bathroom, floors, decorations were all very nice, and clean. The property is on the quiet side of St. John on Coral Bay...it's got on site parking, right near your front door...it's has some very nice landscaping around the outside. I liked this place as well because it's private, not like a hotel or condo with people on all sides of your room.
It's got a full kitchen, TV (bring some movies as there's no cable) but the TV has full hook ups (hdmi) and there's a dvd player.
We were able to drive to the north beaches and south beaches easy, snorkeled A LOT. There are also some of the best places to eat on the island right near by.
We rented a jeep for our stay...made things real easy.
No beach view really but close to beaches and very tropical feeling with all the landscaping outside.
The owners are very respectful and professional. There's AC in the bedroom, nice for sleeping at night. Everything is screened in, no bugs in the house at all.
The down side, maybe quicker showers to conserve water but not a big deal and probably about every property you'll run in to this...it's island living.
Clean, clean, clean...and I'm fairly picky.
They could charge a lot more than they do for a stay here...it's nice.
Hope this helps anyone looking at this as a place to stay.
