This is our 5th villa rental on St. John and we haven't been disappointed yet! Cocoa Reef is situated on a side road in Fish Bay, easy parking on street. Only set back is the house set up is not ideal for young children, as all the bedrooms are only accessible outside.
The main room consists of kitchen/dining/living and a full bath and is detatched from all bedrooms by a breezeway (great for playing cards in the shade).
Cocoa Reef has a great deck with pool and outdoor shower, kids loved hanging out in pool!
Dave and others at Cimmaron very accomodating. Would rent from them again!!
