“Beautiful views and comfortable”

Reviewed 12 Feb 2012

You can expect to experience exactly how Bambooshay Villa is described, and then some. My husband and I spent the Holidays of 2011 at Bambooshay and enjoyed every minute there. Comfortable, clean, bright and cheery, delightfully decorated, we felt right at home. Quiet with lovely views of Coral Bay, we could watch the lights of the boats, listen to music drift up the mountain sides in the evening as we soaked in the hot tub, which was set at a perfect temperature. We used the kitchen for many of our meals. But the best surprise was the thoughtfulness of the owners. They supplied great details and suggestions of what to see and do. The best surprise for us was this: Knowing travelers aren't going to schlepp to St. John beach toys and furniture, or a library of books about the island, they supply them! Mats, chairs, guidebooks, even binoculars and trail guides! I call that going the extra mile to make sure their guests have a wonderful time, and we did. We will return.

“Two years and counting!”

This was our second time staying at Bambooshay and we've already booked for next year. St. John is the perfect vacation for us and Bambooshay completes it. Bambooshay is everything we need and the location is perfect. The balcony is very private and affords beautiful vistas both during the day and at night. The cottage is always very clean and tidy when we arrive. It has all the amenities we require. It's less than a 5 minute drive to the great restaurants and bars in Coral Bay. It's close to our favorite hiking and snorkeling sites. Prior to visiting St. John we stayed at all-inclusive 5-star resorts in the Carribean. St. John and Bambooshay is the only vacation that we have taken that we have not wanted to try some place else the following year. The owners, Scott and Lori, are very accommodating. The first year they gave us great tips for making our vacation that much better. It's great!

“A private oasis in in paradise”

We traveled to St John to elope and were married on the nearby Francis bay. Our stay at Bambooshay was a last minute decision and we were actually surprised how nice it was upon arrival. The photographs do not do justice to this beautiful simple home overlooking coral bay. Everything you would need is provided, to make for a wonderful stay, rent a jeep and explore, you won't be disappointed. We will be returning!!

“Best vacation I've ever taken”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2011

Bambooshay is an adorable cottage! The deck overlooking Coral Bay is an ideal place for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of St. John Island. It's a short drive to several beautiful beaches and funky eateries. Don't miss Donkey Diner and Skinny Legs! My favorite things to do: snorkeling (amazing!); hanging out on the beach with friends or my latest novel; sitting on the Bambooshay deck enjoying the sunset and then the millions of stars and moonlight; watching for wild donkeys as I drive around the island. Thanks Scott & Lori for sharing your little piece of paradise!

Thanks for sharing your house in the land of fun and sun. Bambooshay from the deck coral bay a great view. Look for sea shells and wriggle your toes in the sand. Eat some tasty seafood. Go for a long walk ,catch some rays, take a nap, go swimming,read a book. Great place to spend a relaxing fun time.

“Bambooshay Getaway”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2011

We absolutely fell in love with St. John and Bambooshay. The view from the balcony was amazing and just exactly as you see it on the website. The villa was clean and exactly what we expected. We had everything we needed when we were there. Scott and Lori gave us a great deal of information ahead of time so we knew where to shop, dine and explore. The hiking, beaches and snorkeling were some of the best we have experienced. We have stayed at all inclusive resorts before; but this vacation was by far the best!

“A great experience!”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2011

Everything was top-notch. It was very well-equipped with good-quality amenities, and a gorgeous view of Coral Bay. The switch-backs going up are tight -- get a 4-wheel drive! We had absolutely no complaints, and are looking forward to our next stay there. I highly recommend it to all my friends!

“A Cozy Place with an amazing View”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2011

Bambooshay Villa offered us a great home base for our first visit to St. John. My wife and I brought our 9 month old baby and had a very pleasant stay. We spent a lot of time on the beautiful deck, especially while the baby napped. It was a simple, cozy, no frills place with an amazing view. A fantastic place for a couple. A little tight for three though, especially since the bedroom door was broken which made it difficult to properly separate the sleeping baby from common area.

“Breathtaking views of Coral Bay”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2011

This is the second year that we have stayed at BambooShay, a delightful cottage with the most amazing views of Coral Bay. There is a huge deck and at night we could see thousands of stars and sometimes shooting stars! Only 5 minutes from most of the restaurants and stores in Coral Bay, Bambooshay is also just a short drive away from the best beaches on St John. It is just up the hill from Skinny Legs and the Donkey Diner. The house is small but very clean and has all the amenities you would need including a washer and dryer. The owners were easy to deal with and there is also a caretaker on the island who is available if anything comes up. BambooShay is charming, reasonably priced, and the view and location can't be beat!
