“Perfect Retreat for Couples”
Just returned from a wonderful stay at anchorage aweigh. The house was immaculate and just as described in the listing with spectacular views down into Coral Bay. The outdoor area had such extremely comfortable furniture (dining table too) that we rarely spent a moment inside. We enjoyed the use of the pool, which with it's southern sunny exposure was warm enough for us even in February. The kitchen was well stocked and even had spices, oils, condiments, etc for our use. The house is located up Seagrape Hill, which is a completely paved road (not all secondary roads are in St. John). It was an easy drive down to Coral Bay where we greatly enjoyed the local restuarants Skinny Legs, Aqua Bistro and especially the Coral Bay Caribbean Oasis (we got delicious and inexpensive take-out from them). We also found the location to be centrally located to all our favorite beaches, whether on the North Shore, East End, or Salt Pond area. The owners were extremely easy to work with and very prompt at answering all my questions.
“Fabulous couples getaway!”
This house was an incredible getaway for us. A second honeymoon after 22 years! Great privacy - beautiful pool - - incredible views fo Coral Bay - easy access to wonderful beaches - national parks - national reefs, etc... A great retreat in a beautiful location. Be sure to check out Skinny Legs for a great burger at the bottom of the hill and Miss Lucy's for great food and an opportunity to dine with domesticated goats and a cat. Great community! Will definitely return to anchorage aweigh if our travels take us back to Usvi! Great hosts from afar.
“"It's not Heaven, just paradise."- best honey moon spot ever!”
Anchorage aweigh provided an absolutely perfect place for my husband and I to stay while we were on our honey moon on St. John! The house was very modern, quaint, and romantic. We loved all of the outdoor space, and the outdoor shower was amazing. The house had everything we needed for cooking, making drinks, and going to the beach (coolers, towels, beach chairs).The air condition in the bedroom was definitely a plus, even though with the windows open upstairs the temperature was perfect. We loved eating breakfast and drinking coffee out on the deck in the morning, packing lunch and taking a cooler to all of the beautiful beaches in St. John. We went to a new one every day, all within 20 minutes or so from the house. The pool was so nice to have as well, and we loved to either start or end the day having a cocktail and reading in the comfortable chairs there. Once we became acclimated with the intense hills and driving, all the stress melts away on St. John. Anchorage aweigh was definitely a big part of that, as it is very private and quiet, yet close enough to restaurants in Coral Bay and Cruz Bay. Loves and Lill's Market were within 5 minutes for quick groceries and Star Fish Market in Cruz Bay was only 25 min away. We loved staying in Coral Bay, as it was definitely peaceful with breathtaking views. We were very happy we brought bug spray though, as the mosquitos were pretty thick--especially after a rain. We asbsolutely loved our stay and will definitely return to this little piece of Heaven on Earth! Thank you for sharing it with us!
“That's what I'm talking about.”
Privacy. Views of Coral Bay. Comfort. Anchorage aweigh had it all, packed into a one BR with a wonderful pool and view of Coral Bay. Kitchen utensils, towels, chairs, grill, deck furniture were all selected with the same care you would for your own home.
“Wedding and Honeymoon Heaven”
Our stay at anchorage aweigh was unreal. The privacy was astounding, and the view was breath-taking. The only thing that threatened our comfort in the villa was the mosquitos, but the villa equips you with an electric flyswatter that takes care of that! The kitchen had everything you could possibly need to cook, but we never made it to that point because Skinny Legs and Donkey Diner down the hill were too tempting! Besides those, there are plenty of restaurant options in Coral Bay. We spent every day at the beach, so it was nice that anchorage aweigh is only 5-10 minutes away from the most beautiful beaches in the world. The air-conditioned bedroom was a lifesaver, too. We slept like babies. Oh, and the pool! So refreshing! The night before our wedding, I stayed in the Westin so we could get ready separately. I can honestly recommend anchorage aweigh over a 4-star resort any day! Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home!
“We found the perfect place to stay.”
We could not have been more happy with our stay at anchorage aweigh. It is a short drive up Sea Grape Hill, which is a fun hill to drive. Look the video up on Google! Marc met us at the villa and gave us a quick rundown of information. The minute we walked in we knew we had made a great choice. The villa was fresh and clean. Everything about it was perfect, the view, the pool, the location. The owners have thought of everything you could every need. The ipod dock was great to listen to our music while sitting on the deck taking in the view, they have a complete kitchen and all the utensils that you will need to fix dinners there, as the restaurants get quite expensive eating out every night. Coral Bay is the quieter side of the island, and that is just what we wanted. There are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from in Coral Bay. We brought hot cereals and some bagels with us to have for breakfast at the villa. Then we would head out to one of the beautiful beaches or a hike that are a short drive from the villa. After a morning/early afternoon at the beach, we came back to the villa for a shower and to relax in the pool and then out to dinner. The outdoor shower is lovely...either taking a shower during the heat of the day or under the stars. The only person I would caution is someone that has problems with stairs, as there is a steep spiral staircase that you have to go up and down to get to the bedroom. We loved it, but someone that has a problem with stairs may not. Otherwise, this villa is awesome!
“Dream vacation come true”
We read so many great reviews about this rental, including the owner's blog about its construction, we decided to spend our 20-years-late-honeymoon in St. John. The villa is everything that you might read; beautiful, quiet, semi-secluded, well-appointed and convenient, comfortable. Mark, the property manager, was helpful and in touch with us via email before our arrival. He met us at the ferry when we arrived and had our rental car waiting for us. The entire trip couldn't have been easier. Little touches like beach chairs, coolers, and beach towels made our trip packing a lot easier and our stay even more convenient. The road and driveway are steep but after a couple of times up and down you get used to it. We were enchanted with the sights and sounds from the villa; children playing in the schoolyard, the church bells and singing on Sunday, wild donkeys and chickens, a chorus of insects humming at night, the amazing view of the bay. The pool was clean and we enjoyed it every day. I couldn't say enough about the whole experience. I hope we can return!
“A Week that was Quiet, Relaxing, and Beautiful”
We had a wonderful time celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary at anchorage aweigh. The house was so welcoming and decorated very nice. We enjoyed the swimming pool, outdoor shower, porch views as well as all the other amenities included. The cooler and beach chairs came in very handy to take along to the beaches. The owners provided someone to meet us at the ferry, take us to get our rental car, buy groceries, and to the house. Skinny Legs and aqua Bistro were our favorite restaurants. The prices were very reasonable and the food was good. Chauteau Bordeaux is a must for lunch and has awesome views of St John and other neighboring islands. There are plenty of fantastic beaches within a short driving distance. St. John is a peaceful and beautiful Island to stay on. This was our first visit and we will definitely be coming back.
“Second Time around - It's Still our Home away From Home Paradise”
My husband and I stayed at anchorage aweigh again in august and it did not disappoint. We stayed there last summer and enjoyed our stay so much that we felt like there was no other place we wanted to stay on our return visit to paradise! The cottage is perfect for two people who want privacy, a convenient location, easy access, as well as comfortable and clean surroundings. The air conditioned bedroom is on the lower level accessed by a spiral staircase. We absolutely love the saline pool! It is the perfect way to begin your day and/or end your day. Nothing like coming "home” from being on the beach all day, fixing your beverage of choice, and floating in the pool! The landscaping around the pool is lovely. The owners have planted palm trees and added an umbrella to provide shade if you want to lounge around the pool during the day. The kitchen is well stocked with all cooking essentials including a refrigerator with an ice maker. We loved beginning our day on the covered porch with our coffee watching the sugar birds and looking at the beautiful Coral Bay harbor and hillside. We feel that anchorage aweigh is an exceptional value for all the amenities that are provided its guest and we hope to return for another visit.
“Wonderful vacation place with all amenities for total relaxation”
We found beautiful snorkeling beaches to meet the needs of the beginner or the advanced swimmers. We spent time on the wrap a round deck for shade and relaxation any time of day. The kitchen is well equipped for dining in or availability of dining out provides a variety of choices. We enjoyed the birds and wildlife seen everywhere on the island and most of it within sight from the villa deck. The pool was great way to begin and end the day or anytime in between. The views from the villa and pool were exceptional. We were able to watch a storm come across the harbor and see the boats turn in synchronized dance with the change of tide.
