We were fairly apprehensive about staying somewhere with no reviews, especially given the potential for recent hurricane damage, but took the plunge after seeing that the owners had other well-reviewed properties. We were thrilled that we did. The property is exactly as described and pictured, and the view of Coral Bay is breathtaking. To begin our stay, we were met by the owners’ very welcoming property owner and shown to the property, which is located just a few switchbacks above a well-stocked grocery store. Though you certainly have neighbors, the property is fairly secluded and private. You may hear some music occasionally from the Aqua Bistro down the hill, but otherwise this is a very peaceful getaway. The pool views are as pictured – breathtaking, as is the view from the balcony. While there is no full-sized oven, you’ll find you can make do with the toaster oven and the cooktop, and in high season there are plenty of nearby open restaurants. Though almost all rentals on STJ are 4WD anyway, it’s worth re-emphasizing that a 4 wheel drive is extremely useful, both in getting to Coral Bay itself and then navigating the switchbacks up to the property. Overall, we loved our stay in Coral Bay and can’t wait to come back.
