My vacation in St John was incredibly relaxing. The house is great!  The views are beautiful, I spent every morning eating my breakfast on the covered porch just taking in the was different every day. The beaches of St John are all beautiful, each one that we went to had its own personality. — JH 4/08/08
It was truly a week in paradise – St. John's is so beautiful – waking up to the sunrises and listening to the ocean was like stepping out of time. The cottage was comfortable, quiet and secluded except for an occasional visit from the wild donkeys and goats. We could walk to Salt Pond Bay to swim and Miss Lucy's for a great Caribbean meal. Everyday was an adventure. Thank you so much, we can't wait to come back. — Vicki and Zara, New York 3/31/08
Thank you!  I had an absolutely wonderful time. Your cottage is so comfortable and adorable, I wish I could spend another month down there! — Polly, Massachusettes 2/12/2008
This side of the island [Coral Bay side] is definitely an island paradise! You can choose a relaxing day and just stay on a beach all day, or you can get all the exercise you want by going  snorkeling  or by hiking in the park. All of it so close by! Either way, we enjoyed waking up to the sound of the ocean every morning – it puts us in the island mood!  — Marta, NY 12/07
We have rented various homes all over St. John over many years, and can say that we have finally found the PERFECT one for us! It is comfortable, perfectly located in peace and solitude, and convenient to the hiking trails and less-populated beaches that we prefer. The community of Coral Bay is eclectic, fun and very welcoming.  And with the VITRAN bus service so convenient, we didn't even rent a car this last visit! Fun and relaxing, convenient and economical .... what more could we ask for? — JL & SV 7/08/07
As soon as your airplane brings you close enough to view the islands you realize what a treat is in store for you.  Beautiful, tranquil beaches, lazy day island lifestyle, or plenty to do if you're so inclined (Shopping on St. Thomas!!). Surfside Cottage is a wonderful retreat from a busy life. Sitting in the "outside room" watching the ocean, sipping a cool drink is a wonderful way to pass an hour or two. Beautiful sunsets. Plan to stay as long as you possibly can, you won't want to leave!! — DC,  NY 3/2007
Photos of the stunning Carribean views from this property will never do it justice, come stay and see for yourself!  You could simply sit on the deck soaking up the sun and taking in the vistas for the entire time and have a great vacation!  St. John offers a variety of different beaches, all with their own unique character to find your special spot.  The snorkling opportunities are first-rate. If you have the opportunity to stay at this prime location while enjoying a clean, friendly, and beautiful island like St. John, don't miss your chance!  — Emily, Upstate New York, 2006
Another great week! The perfect location allows for absolute privacy and a constant cooling breeze at the house, and there's alway the beautiful beaches, great shopping, fabulous food...  we can't wait to go back again!   — D.O.  3/06, 5/07, 4/08
