The covered deck is huge and the views out to the BVI's are fabulous -- wake up early for at least one sunrise. The apartment is very spacious, spotlessly clean and the Queen pillow-top mattress is especially comfy. Plenty of windows open for a cross-breeze and if the winds die down there's ceiling fans in each of the rooms. With a complete kitchen plus a gas grill, you can cook as much as you like or pop down the hill to one of the many restaurants around Coral Bay. When the sun goes down, lie in the hammock to stargaze and listen as the tree frogs and birds create "jungle" surround sounds. Slice of Life is truly a great apartment and a great deal.
My husband and I stayed at A Slice of Life for a week and could not have asked for a better stay. The Villa has everything you need and more, including beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, a kayak and plenty of items you need to cook most anything. We loved waking up to the beautiful views of Hurricaine Hole and the BVI's. We saw deer in the yard each morning too. The owner made suggestions for his favorite beaches and restaraunts which were all fabulous. Coral Bay is definitely the quiter side of the island which we enjoyed very much, but has plenty of restaraunts less than 5 minutes away and about 25 minutes to the North beaches along a beautiful route. Our first but not our last stay here!
It's a little bit of an adventure getting to Slice of Life, what with planes, rental car, vehicle ferry, winding left handed roads, and some steep inclines. Then you get to this little slice of paradise and you know you've made a great decision. John "Fitz" was very welcoming letting us know the ins and outs of the studio and giving us a few pointers on exploring the island by 4X4. The kitchen was well appointed with everything you would need. My wife was very impressed with the towels (they were super soft). No surprises here, it was everything advertised and more. You are in the tropics so use bug spray on the deck, especially around dusk (this was expected). The view out of the front deck was amazing. We ended up getting out 3 different maps to try to figure out all the islands and hills we were seeing. The view seems to go on forever. There was a nice set of binoculars, a nice sound system that easily hooked up to our iPhone, and a large TV that we never turned on. Wake up for sunrise, it's perfect. I will recommend this property to friends and relatives. My wife and I plan to return in the future. Great stay. Thanks Fitz.
We stayed two weeks on St John. I choose this place because it was reasonably priced, had what we needed and looked well maintained. It was everything that we imagined and wanted it to be. Relaxing and comfortable. A great getaway. Great location...about 1/2 way between everything. The ride getting up to the house is bumpy but so worth it. A shorts ways away is the Dolphin Market where we would stop a lot. The Aqua Bistro is right next door to that which I thought was the best food on the island. Thank you John!!! We are coming back next year!
True to other reviews, the property was in great condition - very clean, spacious, quiet and comfortable. The amenities are well maintained and very convenient, especially the gorgeous porch and outdoor bbq.
Its Coral Bay location is ideal to enjoy a leisurely holiday on the island. The location is very convenient in terms of visiting spectacular beaches and snorkeling sites, restaurants and nature trails. The off-the-beach snorkeling stands out as some of the best we've done - rich corals, tropical fish, turtles, rays, etc. The location is also a short drive from Cruz Bay and its many shops, grocery stores (recommend Dolphin), restaurants, etc.
The owner, John, is very hospitable, knowledgeable and welcoming. He was very responsive to any information/ requests and helpful in recommending best off-the-beach snorkeling, beaches and local restaurants (especially Oasis in Coral Bay).
Overall, the trip was very successful, relaxing, comfortable, and yet adventurous and exciting. The owner's hospitality and advice, gorgeous property and it's ideal location on St. John made all the difference.
The Slice of Life is a wonderful place to stay on St John. Fritz is a great host and everything wrote on all of the other reviews is totally true. My wife and I spent a week in April and enjoyed it immensely. The place was the best deal we have ever found in the Carribean. Spacious, quiet and beautiful. The views were great and it's a great location from which to.go off and see the island. If you like beautiful beaches and great food, this is the place to go.
