Week in St John-USVI
Renting the property was a smooth process. The owner was very easy to work with and very responsive to all questions. The property manager was likewise very helpful.
Overall, the property was very good, and we would recommend it to anyone. The beds were excellent, the outdoor showers worked well, and the kitchen was reasonably well-equipped. The small pool was a nice amenity that I wasn't sure we would use given we spent our days at the beach, but it turned out to be very relaxing at night. The beach chairs and cooler were helpful
It was located within 15-20 minutes of the North Shore beaches (Maho, Trunk Bay, Hawksnest, etc.), 7 minutes from Coral Bay, 15-20 minutes from the East End, and about 30 minutes from Cruz Bay. The location was ideal for accessing all parts of the island within a reasonable period of time.
I think it would be helpful to note the property is located up a series of steep switchbacks and at the top of a very steep driveway. The photos are also a bit dated. The view over Coral Bay is nice, but not the pristine one implied by the pictures in the advertisement. I also wish the kitchen was a little better stocked. Because food prices/supplies are relatively high on the island, it is a deterrent to cook if you have to buy a lot of supplies (e.g., spices).
The biggest drawback is the main room gets very hot and stuffy even with the sliding glass doors open. If a floor fan was available that would help dramatically. It was pleasant sitting on the porch, but the living room wasnt really comfortbale to sit at night. Because the couch outside isn't that comfortable and very buggy at night, not being able to sit inside was a bit annoying.
Overall, a very good property with a terrifically nice owner and property manager. Recommended
We hope you enjoyed your stay. Most of St. John is very hilly. Seagrape Hill is paved. Yes, it is a bit steep. The only picture we have not updated is the Moravian Church without its roof. We would like to keep the memory of how it was before we lived through Irma as our memory. Thanks for choosing Anchorage Aweigh.
Perfect Week for our Family Vacay!
We had a wonderful stay at Anchorage Aweigh and were so impressed with this property! This was our third visit (once as a couple, twice as a family-our boys are now 18 and 21!) , and first time staying on the Coral Bay side of the island and it was great to explore the East End, Salt Pond, hike to Ram's Head and be close to our fave, Maho Bay (small note--don't go snorkeling with the jeep key in your pocket! oops- "vacation brain"!) We rented snorkel equip for the week at Crabby's in town. Snorkeling at Leinster/Waterlemon was a bit longer walk than we remembered and wasn't that great /not much to see. Salt Pond was beautiful and a stop at Miss Lucy's for lunch was the best! At Maho we saw turtles! rays! an Eagle Ray! That was the best location by far (if you don't count Lovango Cay on our boat trip) --and great new vendors across the road for Paddleboard Rentals etc! ( Just don't return your board a few minutes late or they will charge you extra--they are not on "island time" as we'd hoped )Also recommend a late afternoon sun set visit to Trunk Bay! Took some amazing photos there but bring your bug spray! The house had everything we could need and was so private and well appointed! The views from the porch and the pool are spectacular. Beds super comfy! For cooking meals we still ended up going over to St. John Market /Starfish to find certain things but not a big deal as we were over there for other reasons one or two days. We did use the local groceries too! This time we rented with St. John Car Rental and they are the best we have rented with--nice 2019 model jeeps. I think we are finally used to driving on the island /negotiating the hills, goat and sheep roadblocks and steep inclines etc with confidence! Had a nice 1/2 day boat trip with On the Sea Charters too, to access other snorkeling locales not reachable by land. Explored the different Cays and uninhabited islands around St. John. We will miss the wonderful pool, and the great morning views w/our coffee watching the town and wildlife wake up ! Thank you for the cooler, ice packs, backpack beach chairs and just everything in the kitchen and bathrooms that made our visit easier and more fun! Dave loved the ceiling fans on the porch --what a great place to relax and watch the harbor! Daniel was loving the Direct TV on NHL Draft Day! We will count the days until we return! Thank you Scott and Patricia for sharing your slice of paradise with us!
Thank you so much!! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay on St. John and at Anchorage Aweigh. Yes, the driving takes some getting used to, but the vistas are amazing! We hope you will be back and take advantage of our repeat guest discount. Best Regards, Patricia
Amazing property, location, and stay!
My husband and I, as well as my Mom and her boyfriend, stayed here in mid-June this year and everything went perfectly. The property manager was extremely helpful and accommodating and gave us wonderful suggestions. We were so glad we stayed in Coral Bay, it was the perfect location on the island. The drive up to the property is not for the faint of heart (very steep, as St. John roads are) but it was a super fun adventure driving around the island to the different beaches. The property itself was extremely clean, well appointed, and comfortable with all the amenities you would expect and more. The showers with the views outside were amazing, and the view from the decks and pool as well. We had a perfect stay and would highly recommend to anyone visiting St. John.
Perfect, just perfect
This is a great place for one or two couples. We loved the proximity to Coral Bay, could watch the town waking up each morning, listen to the music from Indigo or Pickles at night from the covered porches ( and the screen porch one night!) and yet still had wonderful breezes. Our days consisted of leaving for snorkeling in the mornings, picking up a sandwich at Pickles and back to the pool late afternoon. The pool was divine, nicely situated with two lounge chairs and plantings around - it felt very private. The king bed was very comfortable and always love the outdoor shower. The appliances are newer, the furniture comfortable, and kitchen well stocked. Note that there is not a Keurig, take regular coffee.
Thank you, Kathleen! We are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation on St. John. We are so happy that Anchorage Aweigh fit your needs. The pool is indeed very private and soothing after a day at the beach. We hope you are able to return to Anchorage Aweigh in the future! Best Regards, Patricia
Beautiful Villa- Scary ride
The villa is beautiful. The views have changed since the hurricane two years ago. The pictures on the site have not been updated. It would have been nice to know the drive up the hill has 5 switchbacks next to a cliff and parking it straight up and the turn around is very difficult. It takes about 5 turns to back up and be able to not hit anything to get back down the drive. You need to be a very confident driver. But the villa is very nice with the pool.
St John is a very challenging place to drive. It is very mountainous with steep drop-offs and narrow roads. Not for the faint of heart.
Coral Bay heaven
The view is spectacular. The house is well maintained and comfortable. But the salt water pool is the icing on the cake. Annette met us and guided us to the house. As with other St John rentals, the access roads are hair raising. Be sure to rent a Jeep. I’m not sure a regular vehicle can get there. But once we got used to it, it wasn’t too bad. The beds are comfortable. Lots of towels, including beach towels. Loved the view from the outdoor shower stall.
There were also nice beach chairs and a cooler.
Be sure go to Aqua Bistro and Skinny Legs for a meal. Rhumbline provided fabulous live music most nights that was enjoyable from the pool or porch. The goats and chickens “sing” along.
I hope to return to Anchorage Aweigh as soon as possible.
Thanks so very much for your kindness. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time at Anchorage Aweigh. We love the pool! It's also nice to have the music to enjoy right at home if you don't feel like going out. We welcome you back to Anchorage Aweigh anytime! Best Regards, Patricia
