My wife and I spent a week at La Bella Villa on our honeymoon. From start to finish, the trip was relaxing and care free! Nancy (the property manager for the house) and her husband met us on the dock in Cruz Bay. They took us to get our rental jeep and waited while we stocked up at the grocery store. We felt welcome and at ease from the moment she met us! The house is situated a short drive from Coral Bay - not too far from activity but just the right amount of privacy. The porch overlooking the bay got a lot of use whether reading, taking a quick nap or enjoying an afternoon drink. And what a view! Many times did we find ourselves gazing out at the water and taking it all in. The accommodations are fantastic! We particularly both loved the outdoor shower. Proximity to the beaches could not be easier and we had great time in Coral Bay. Shipwreak Landing and Donkey Diner are two of the best restaurants on the island and they are minutes from La Bella Villa's front door! We were just there two weeks ago and can't wait to go back!!
La Bella Villa was the perfect spot for our family of 4 to call home during our week on St. John. It is a charming stone house with amazing Caribbean character. Palms swaying, a huge terra cotta veranda, teak doors and shutters, a huge relaxing pool deck, and all the modern comforts and amenities! The views really took our breath away - any time of day! You look right out to the center of Coral Bay which is just enchanting. It took us not more than 10 min. to get to the first of the Northshore beaches - easy drive and of course, just a couple of minutes to all Coral Bay restaurants/shops. The house was simply love at first sight!
La Bella Villa is a treasure tucked away in a hill overlooking Coral Bay. We stayed there several nights, and loved the privacy and beauty of the place. It features amazing stonework, high ceilings, modern kitchen, and stunning views of the island's green hills and bay. Wooden shutters are perfect for keeping the island breezes circulating inside. The outdoor shower was also a real treat, and we loved waking up to the sounds of doves cooing. A fabulous romantic getaway!
My wife, myself, and our 2 kids (ages 10 and 6) returned to Atlanta from St. John and La Bella Villa 3 days ago and wish we could go back tomorrow. The back deck and its view of Coral Bay was the spot for morning coffee/tea, evening wine and cocktails, and family games. The side deck with the pool and view of Bordeaux Mountain was perfect for evening plunges in the pool or just lounging. From the house beautiful beaches such as Trunk Bay, Cinnamon Bay, Maho Bay, and Salt Pond (there were more, just too many to mention) were easily reachable. I almost forgot to mention the incredible outdoor shower. None of us ever used the indoor one. If I was told I had to come up with a negative, I would say sometimes the kids room did not get the cross ventialtion of the master. Thus 2 window units might be worth it. And though we really didn't need her, it was obvious Nancy, the caretaker, was ready to assist. Since it was September, the island was very quiet and some establishments in Coral Bay was closed. We went to Cruz Bay a few times. But we enjoyed the quiet. Perhaps we were blessed to have great weather in September. But when we plan our return to the island, it may well again be during September. As my wife and kids have already stated "Best family vacation ever!"
The view was outstanding & location perfect. LOVED the outdoor shower and the porch overlooking Coral Bay. We will be back!
This is the best vacation my wife and I have been on. The house was perfect, our greeter was very helpful, and the entire island was nice. We will definitely be back as soon as possible.
