About the neighbourhood
1-27A Gerda Marsh Drive, Coral Bay, St. John, VI 00830. Catch 'n' Keep is nestled in a quiet cul de sac off a secondary road with only neighbors passing by, and there is shaded parking right next to the entrance. Two small markets nearby make life easier, as do a choice of eateries for those who really want to relax! Well-sited to catch the Trade Winds, the cottage is fully screened and has Hunter ceiling fans. Six large double doors open onto two covered decks where you can grill out with a Weber gas grill and dine in the fresh air. Or lounge in the hammocks and enjoy the country view, tropical breezes, and beautiful evening sky.
