Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Dramatically perched 60 ft. over the calm Caribbean Sea, 'Cliffhanger' presents stunning views across Coral Harbor and into Hurricane Hole. Completely re-modeled and professionally decorated in 2011, this waterfront villa offers everything new; a new modern full kitchen with all the amenities, new bathrooms with stunning detail, and all new furniture, appliances, and electronics. 'Cliffhanger' is ideal for couples and perfect for families, as it comfortably accommodates up to 6 guests with its 3 air conditioned bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The master bedroom, kitchen, extra bathroom and living space is located on the main level. The other two bedrooms, each with their own entrance off the lower deck, can be reached via an exterior staircase. Having our home set up this way allows us to offer the master bedroom alone or in combination with either one or two of the downstairs bedrooms. Gaze into the mesmerizing blue and watch boats from all parts of the globe as they glide through the turquoise waters of Coral Bay Harbor. Spot turtles and sting rays from the sprawling dramatic deck while mixing drinks at the outdoor bar. Cheer on sailboat races from the comfort of your hammock.

'Cliffhanger' is located waterfront to Coral Bay with surf sounds around the entire property. From the villa you can easily access the Virgin Islands National Park and white sand beaches for hiking, water sports such as sailing, snorkeling, or diving, or just plain lounging on the beach. The Village of Coral Bay is just under 1/2 mile away, with many shops, restaurants, bars, and access to an array of adventurous activities. The still-pristine island of St. John is the smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands and lies just 3 miles east of St. Thomas and a mile from the nearest of the British Virgin Islands. Nearly two-thirds of the island is national park, with forests and nature trails for your enjoyment. Nature lovers will be amazed by St. John's ecological diversity.

Conveniently located with paved access to the front door, high speed internet, cable TV, soft linens, spacious decks both in the sun and in the shade, big blue ocean views from every room, and lush outdoor environment; these are but a few of the features that make 'Cliffhanger' the perfect choice for your St. John vacation.

A dream vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Cliffhanger is a dream! Everything about it is spectacular - the views, its proximity to the water, its perfect location in town. It's close to everything and yet completely hidden, with no hairpin turns to navigate to get to. The sound of the water is everywhere and the warm breezes are healing. Of all the places we've stayed in on St John, Cliffhanger in Coral Bay is hands down our favorite place. And this is despite the fact that 3 of our 5 full days there were rainy and windy. Watching boats move into and out of the safe haven of Coral Bay harbor as soft rain fell on the bay was mesmerizing. Owner Denise is absolutely great to work with, very responsive, very nice and extremely helpful. We're already getting our calendars lined up to return next year.

RELAX AND UNWIND

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful vacation home with another couple and found it to be as spectacular as other reviewers noted. This is our second visit to St. John and this home did not disappoint. It was spotless, furnished nicely, had everything we needed, was close to the beaches and the local restaurants. We slept like a rock with the comfortable beds and the sound of the ocean waves hitting the shores below. We spent 2 of our 7 days right there at the house and found it was our most enjoyable restful days we spent there. So many nooks and crannies to settle in and relax whether it be the comfortable lounge chairs, hammock, chairs down beside the water, and even reading in bed looking out over the water. It was especially well set up for multiple couples. When we wanted time alone we simply went to our separate deck on the lower level and felt like we had the place all to ourselves. Our days were spent eating breakfast in, packing a lunch and heading to the beach, stopping for happy hour in the afternoon at the Café Concordia for our $4. Painkillers. Yummm. Then we headed back to the house for some reading, relaxation and a nap before heading our for dinner and coming back home for playing cards and board games. We all agreed it was the most restful vacation we ever had. On a calm water morning we headed down below to our own waterfront and snorkeled to the left near the rocks jutting out of the water. Not to be missed! Some of the best snorkeling we did. Fish galore and some really cool coral and rock formations. That was an unexpected treat for never leaving home. Denise was wonderful to work with and we had no issues at all. Would definitely return to this wonderful home. Enjoy!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words about Cliffhanger. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed relaxation time and snorkeling at our home. We are very fortunate to have the water access at the bottom of our property. We know you have to work your way into the sea, but it sure is great to be able to hike back up the path for a nice cool drink after a great swim! We are glad you took advantage of every minute! Please come back and stay with us again.

Delightful and comfortable house on Coral Bay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented many houses over the years on a number of Caribbean islands. They have all been lovely, in their various ways. Cliffhanger, where we stayed for two weeks, is one of the very best. As well as being attractively furnished (nice fabrics!), it is meticulously maintained, with great attention to detail. I like to cook and especially appreciated the updated kitchen, easily the best equipped that I have come across. We found the beds to be extremely comfortable; the linens are of high quality, The views and the proximity to the water are a treat. Coral Bay has everything one needs (groceries, restaurants, a good deli) and is relaxed and easy to navigate--such a contrast to Cruz Bay. (By the way, I highly recommend the fish tacos and vegetarian chili at Indigo Grill.) It's an easy drive to several beautiful beaches. Owner Denise is a very gracious and highly competent person, with whom I have enjoyed corresponding. Jared, who runs a real estate and maintenance business on St. John, responded quickly to several requests. In sum, we really enjoyed the house and recommend it enthusiastically to others!

Beautiful home over looking the water

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed staying at your beautiful home. Really loved the level parking area. The home itself was really clean. We had iguana visiting us everyday which was really neat. Got some really great pictures of them and the beautiful clear water below. Even saw a shark. Loved being over the water. And having the little grocery store and a place to rent snorkel gear just a minute down the road. Skinny Legs and Shipwreck Landing restaurants were great and right there by the house. We did a lot of grilling at the house and enjoyed eating on the deck watching the sunset. I particularly enjoyed the sunrises every morning between 5 and 530 sitting outside or laying in the hammock watching the day come in.

We went out on a snorkel sunset sail with Kiote sails. (Right here in Coral Bay by Skinny Legs). That was such a great time. After that Jimmy the captain would sound his horn every time he would go out again and give us a wave. Enjoyed Maho Beach a lot (great beach for seeing the Sea Turtles) and also visited Little Lamshure Bay and Salt Pond (brought back our own natural sea salt to cook with) plus went out on the Kekoa Catamaran in Cruz Bay. Enjoyed everything! Thanks again so much for opening up your home for us to enjoy. Absolutely enjoyed and so glad we chose Cliffhanger as our vacation spot. Its location is ideal for peace and quiet but within minutes of things you need. One thing worth mentioning. Rent a Jeep on St John if you really want to enjoy seeing the island. You will need it for the steep hills and sharp curves.

Great Location and House

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at the Cliff Hanger Villa for 6 days. The house was exactly as described and the views were amazing. This was our third time visiting St. John and this is by far the best place we have stayed. Denise was very responsive and was a pleasure to work with. We are already planning our next trip down and will be staying at the Cliff Hanger.

Amazing views - quality property

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for a blissful 6 days at Cliffhanger. I am a 20 year visitor of this island and have stayed many places across all bays in all types of housing. The quality of this property along with the amazing view was by far the most spectacular I have ever experienced. Getting waterfront property on St. John for a reasonable price is a unicorn on this island - I am so glad I caught a unicorn! It was spacious, clean and modern. The views were beyond beautiful - to left the coral bay harbor with all of it's sail boats, straight ahead a view of the East End with the BVI in the distance, and to the right the open ocean. It was spectacular. The house is located directly off of the main street and I rarely heard a sound. It was wonderful not to have to climb the side of the mountain or down a very steep path to get to your place, something that is common on this island. There were two very large decks - one on the main level and one the lower level so you could be in the sun or in the shade. The property is spacious with three bedrooms. Said differently, if you are with a group and need a break from the crowd, you could easily go hide away on the lower deck in your own room for privacy. :) The hammock and the little path to the shore were so fun! The kitchen was spectacular with every amenity you could imagine. Jared (the property manager), his wife Angie and their little daughter were wonderful people to work with. Denise, the owner, was fantastic. They know the definition of real customer service. The pictures truly did not do it justice. I would highly recommend this space and I look forward to the opportunity to stay here again at some point in the future! IT was convenient, modern and easily accessible. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask Denise for my contact information. I am happy to make myself available to any of her customers. Highly recommended!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write up such a detailed, wonderful review. We are so happy you enjoyed your time at Cliffhanger. It is very convenient for our guests to have a parking pad street level so they don't have to drive up any bumpy, dirt roads. It is nice to know that we are able to provide our guests with a place they can feel at home in during their stay on St. John. Please come back and visit us again :)
