We recently returned from what can only be described as a perfect vacation experience at Anchorage Aweigh. Scott and Patricia, the friendly owners, have created a gorgeous home overlooking equally gorgeous Coral Bay. The attention to detail in this stunning home is amazing, and is made even more so by the fact that the owners built this home themselves. The house was immaculately clean when we arrived and Scott and Patrica anticipated our every need, from a well stocked kitchen to coolers and beach chairs.

My husband and I were traveling with friends, and the house is perfect for two couples traveling together. There are two equally lovely master bedrooms on separate floors, each with air conditioning comfortable beds with luxury linens (and great pillows!), private bathrooms with fabulous outdoor showers with plenty of luxurious towels. I saw several reviews here stating the lack of hot water for showers. We didn’t experience that at all. Even with all four of us showering after a day at the beach we found hot water was always available.

We spent a lot of time on the wrap around porch, enjoying our breakfast out there before setting off for the day’s adventures, and sitting back with a glass of wine and the lovely views in the late afternoon before going out to dinner at one of Coral Bay’s great restaurants.

We also enjoyed a dip in the saline pool most afternoons after a day at one of the beautiful St. John beaches.

Scott and Patricia were living in the cottage on the property, and were available for a friendly chat and to give advice if we wanted, but also were very thoughtful of our privacy and had we not initiated conversation, we probably wouldn’t have known they were around. Three cheers for perfect VRBO owners! Thank you Scott and Patricia for sharing your home with us. All four of us agreed that we had a perfect stay at Anchorage Aweigh and would highly recommend this beautiful home to anyone.

“Perfect in Coral Bay”
Reviewed 16 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Lovely villa rental in the quiet part of St John- Coral Bay on the eastern end of the tiny island. 2 couples traveled together. We could not have asked for a better rental. Perched up on Sea Grape Hill, we were minutes from great dining, great bars, a small but pretty well stocked grocery store. The lovely beaches of the north shore including Honeymoon, Maho, Hawksnest, Cinnamon and Trunk were only about 15-20 minutes away by car. But for us, the villa as well as Scott and Patricia was really a wonderful centerpiece to our great visit to the island. Scott and Patricia could not have been kinder, helpful- Scott met us at Courtesy Car Rental in Cruz Bay (the "busy" part of St John) and we followed him back to the villa. They suggested several great places to dine. Answered any questions we had etc etc. The home they have built is stunning- 2 beautifully decorated and comfortable bedrooms on separate levels of the home for privacy, both with outdoor showers (the shower on the lower level overlooks the beautiful harbor of Coral Bay). Soft soft soft towels as beach towels. Wonderful wraparound porches where we spend quite a bit of time taking in the beauty of the area. The kitchen was well stocked. Wit so many great places to dine, we never made a dinner there but had breakfasts and sometimes lunch, dining on the outside porch. The rental was absolutely spotless when we arrived and very well maintained. If/when we return to St John, we would hope to stay at this beautiful property again.

Words cannot capture the magical adventure we experienced while in Coral Bay, St. John! The excitement, the wildlife, the water, the new friends, the food, the ambiance, the hiking, the driving, the snorkeling, the beaches, the sunsets, the kayaking...

The villa was beautiful, clean and comfortable and centrally located to all our needs. We had as much privacy as we chose, while our hosts were available and incredibly generous with guidance and kindness. The showers were awesome, and the bed was very comfortable. So much care had been taken to create an island paradise.

We had all the amenities to cook a few meals and were close enough to run out when we wanted to either grab a casual meal between beaches or go out for a fine dining experience.

We praise God for such a wonderful way to celebrate our 20th anniversary! We would choose to come here again!

“Perfect get away”
Reviewed 11 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon. Scott and Patricia were the perfect hosts and treated us as if we were family. They helped us find our way from the ferry dock to our rental car location and showed us around coral bay. The view is better than any of the pictures and the pool is an amazing plus. We spent our days exploring all the great hiking and snorkeling spots and our evenings dining at the local restaurants. The highlight of the trip was kayaking and snorkeling the mangroves with Scott, Patricia and their friends. Could not have ask for a better week. We will be returning in the near future.

“Perfection”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at this property five years ago for our honeymoon and loved it, we didn't even consider other places in Coral Bay.. Since our last visit the owners had built a new house on the property and it is stunning!

The house had every amenity we could possibly need, the kitchen was very well appointed, and the bed was heavenly! We love the comfort of the entire house and the views from every room were amazing and you can't forget the refreshing pool. The owners were onsite the second week of our visit and we found that they were helpful and loved hearing about our daily adventures as well as offering additional places to visit.

The location of this property is very conveniently located in Coral Bay and very easy to get to. The food in Coral Bay is just as good if not better than the Cruz Bay side of the island with Skinny Legs, Miss Lucy's, Aqua Bistro, The Tourist Trap, and many others offering great food and entertainment.

My wife and I can't say enough about the property and the amazing work that these owners have put into it. We are already planning our next trip and wouldn't think of staying anywhere besides Anchorage Aweigh.
