My husband and I had the pleasure of being the first visitors to this property since Irma/Maria. The hurricanes hit this property and some rebuilding/refurbishments were required, but they were all complete by the time we arrived and the place was great!! You can see that the whole island is working hard to recover, some places faster than others, but that was a huge reason we wanted to go to this island - we wanted to bring tourism hopefully to help the economy in some way! We loved this home and would stay there again.
Andrew suggested a jeep rental place in Cruz Bay and they were excellent. I did some price hunting and it was the best deal I could find on the island, so thank you Andrew! So helpful. We ventured all the steep, windy roads to this home and were thankful we got a jeep! At first, I had to take a couple of attempts to make the hairpin turn to/from the property but by the end of our stay, I was a pro. Ha! It was so fun to be up on that peak, with beautiful views from the deck AND from the driveway!
There was bottled water and a jug of water in the fridge upon arrival, which was nice to have since we didn't make it to the grocery store right away once on the island. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, including salt and pepper. In the bedroom closet we found beach towels and the toiletries in the restroom (shampoo, conditioner, bar soap) were fully stocked. We weren't expecting those things so it was a nice find!! Also, during our stay, Andrew was always just a text or call away, very responsive and helpful when we had questions.
The home is very tucked away and very private, but it took us a little time to get used to no curtains in the bathroom or bedroom. It was special to have all of the natural light, waking up to that early morning sun and watching little lizards run around outside while I laid in bed was really fun.
Having a cup of iced coffee on the deck in the morning was our absolute favorite part of this place! Such great breezes up there! Maho Beach being less than 10min away was a huge perk, as well! Especially at night to see the huge crabs and sea turtle heads popping up! ((Not a fan of the no-see-ums that love Maho as well, though... take BUG SPRAY to this beach!))
Thankful for our amazing Honeymoon in St. John! Hope this helps!
We stayed at Little Palm Villa in late June 2018. We LOVED it. The moment we walked in we felt the cool breezes in the open air setting. The entire home is screened in and we never saw any sign of unwanted pests. The screens work very well. I really enjoyed the outdoor shower. The views from the deck were amazing as well. The home is fully stocked, beyond what youd expect. The main floor bedroom has A.c. but we never even turned it on. The driveway is steep and a bit bumpy but nothing major and adds to the Coral Bay experience.
We would highly recommend this villa and the owners Rik & Ann. They were a pleasure to meet and rent from. We met them for cocktails and enjoyed it. We'll be back for sure.
