Villa in Paradise
We had an incredible time at this wonderful house. Our host was incredibly welcoming and made us feel at home, giving a great tour of the house and an overview of the area. The beach is close and beautiful, the snorkeling was great. Coral Bay has great food options, and the villa was wonderfully secluded. The owners live nearby on site if anything comes up— you could yell and they’d come running to help.
JUST THE PERFECT LOCATION
We so enjoyed staying at this villa. great size, lovely views, clean, walking distance from beach and two kayaks that got us to explore around the bay and enjoy the floating taco bar that just opened. So much fun!! Thank you
hope to see you next year! would like to ask you to consider sharing photos of your famiy enjoying the house. We'd love to include them on our VRBO site next season.
(P.S.....You left the house in a pristine condition! Really appreciate it!!!)

Serene and beautiful views
This was our first experience staying out near Coral Bay and East End. This villa is set in a very natural setting, open aired, and sounds of nature are all around you. If you want a retreat away from it all, this place is for you. Mark and Nicholas are so warm and friendly, full of information to help you enjoy your stay on island. If you don’t mind about a 15-20 minute drive from Coral Bay to East End, seeing the donkeys and deer along the way in addition to a lot of beautiful views, then this place is for you. Definitely a place to unwind. Mark and Nicholas, thank you for sharing your home with us and it was a pleasure to meet the both of you and your beautiful daughter.
Charmed was the perfect getaway with ocean views, private beach, and accommodating owners
We spent a week at Charmed with another couple. The villa was perfect with ocean views from the decks and cool evening breezes. Loved the use of coolers, beach chairs, and snorkeling equipment. The private beach had the best snorkeling and we loved looking for sea glass. Mark and Nicholas were very accommodating and had helpful tips on where to eat and the best beaches to visit. They told us about Brown’s Bay Hike and Beach. The hike and snorkeling was fabulous. Absolutely loved our stay and would book this villa again!
Epic Views and Serenity
I would like to first say the owner's were very helpful and close by so that was always reassuring. Thank you both!
Now for leaving a review for others :This was our first time to St. Johns and we chose this Island for a getaway that was away from the commercialism and be surrounded by unspoiled nature. This part of the island was just that. We really never wanted to leave the bay because we had plenty to do right there. We did explore out to visit some "not to be missed beaches" and see the Island from the water and from terrain. Wow! (4-Wheel drive is an ABSOLUTE here)
I know this is mentioned but you really do just walk down to the beach from the house. They have Kayaks, fins, nets, there is a sitting area. Get out to the bay early as soon as the sun hits the water on the other side of the bay for best snorkeling .
A lot of the beaches can be rocky and have some plants so ladies the one shoe you need to bring on the trip is some kind of light weight ,water friendly sandal that straps onto your feet. Leave your heels at home. :)
The views from morning to night are incredible. STARS! we turned out all the lights and you can see the milky way...
There is a street that continues one to the end of the island (there is only one) it goes up and around the end of the island that you can walk from the house and the views from there are like nothing else!
So many amazing animals that reside there. Geckos, Goats, Donkeys, Deer, Chickens, Exotic Birds...I could go on.
*There is the cutest house gecko that lives behind the stone mirror in the 1/2 bathroom upstairs. So don't be surprised to seem him when you go in there.
We stayed in early February and this was my BUG REVIEW. I personally only dislike mosquitos and they came out at dusk but I found them most hungry in the morning so be mindful when you step outside with your early morning coffee. :)
*The owners supplied those jolt rackets for pesky bugs too in addition to some spray.
We can't wait to come back!
Wonderful relaxing time with beautiful views
My wife and I had an delightful vacation at the Getaway. The place had everything we needed and Mark and Nicholas were wonderful hosts who were ever helpful.
The location is serene and peaceful. I spent a lot of time hanging out in the balcony, taking in the views, watching birds, and sipping rum cocktails. The pool and the outdoor shower are great for refreshing evening time dips. The private beach is convenient not only when you dont want to make a trip to the north shore beaches, but it also has some great snorkeling on it's own right.
Mark has some great tips on good hikes, and good snorkeling. He also hooked us up with snorkeling gear, beach chairs, kayaks, PFDs and coolers.
We would certainly stay here again next time we visit, and would definitely recommend to friends as well!
