We loved staying in the Lily Suite! It was the perfect size and we really loved being so close to the water listening to the waves crash. The management, Julie and Dave, went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcomed, including helping celebrate a birthday! The neighborhood peacocks, chickens, roosters and kitties were a pleasant bonus. This was a definitely an 'island feel' place and we can't wait to come back!

Our visit to St. John was greatly enhanced by our choice to stay at Coconut Coast Villas. CCV is one of the few properties right on the water and is in a quiet and lovely location. We enjoyed the short walk into Cruz Bay and the closeness to the natural world with its many kinds of birds and other creatures, including iguanas, lizards, and turtles. Some of our favorite time was spent on the large balcony of our well appointed room , looking over the water and listening to the rustling of palm trees as cool breezes blew through them. Our delightful hosts, Dave and Julie were were both attentive and respectful, knowing when to be helpful and when to allow guests their privacy. They were consistent in their helpfulness, answering questions, responding to issues, acquainting us and others about events happening on the island. They were very knowledgeable about St. John and great about making suggestions of places to visit. They went out of their way to make our vacation a wonderful experience, including picking us up and dropping us off at the ferry dock. We really enjoyed our visit to CCV- and to St. John. We were welcomed like family and look forward to returning- soon!

We loved the Poinsettia unit: peaceful & quiet with balcony overlooking the ocean, constant breezes, sound of waves lapping at rocky beach below. When I started to feel bored, the car barge would pass by & grab my attention for a few minutes!
Unit had a well-equipped kitchenette & plenty of storage space; everything was immaculate.
Julie & David were very friendly, attentive to our needs, & helpful in recommending places to go. It was always a pleasure conversing with them, & they were always willing to give us directions, info on parking, & answers to our questions.
I am glad that CCV remains quaint, minimizing any negative impact on Turner Bay & the salt pond. (Contrast this to the way the Westin is destroying Great Cruz Bay). We preferred CCV's home-like atmosphere over larger impersonal resorts. We highly recommend it & would definitely stay there again.

We so enjoyed our time here! The rooms are lovely, the location very convenient and the view very pleasant, especially a rocky area for the waves to wonderfully crash on! The managers couldn't have been warmer or more helpful, they thoroughly enjoy their work and their guests reap the benefits. We had so many questions and they answered every one patiently! They have great plans to upgrade and perfect things in maintaining the property, but we hardly noticed any imperfections. Our favorite thing about staying here was the integrity of the place, being true to where they are. You feel comfortable (American style) while still knowing you are in the islands! They have drawn a great balance in allowing the location to impact you while providing creature comforts. We are planning to return!

We had the pleasure of staying at CCV for a few nights of our week long stay on St John. We stayed at Concordia Eco-resort the other nights. Everything was so wonderful at CCV. The condo had an awesome deck facing the ocean, and the sounds of the waves was magical. Our 2 and 3 year olds LOVED the rocky beach (we found lots of animals in the rocks, including 2 octopi). No it is not a sandy shore, but our kids still loved it in the morning before we went to the sandy beaches. We rented a car during our stay. After I booked our trip, we heard some rumors about it not being such a safe location and to watch our belongings and watch out for personal safety. Then I practically had an anxiety attack about taking a 2 and 3 yr old there on vacation....rest assured, I never felt an OUNCE of apprehension or even bad vibe from anyone and I thought CCV felt very safe (we were on the ground floor, too). The managers were beyond lovely and accommodating. They were even kind enough to pick us up at the ferry bc our rental car wasn't available until the next day. I wish we would have just stayed here our entire stay (and skipped the militant yogis at Concordia).

As far as the other reviews for this wonderful place, I read some things about their decor being dated and the television being difficult to turn on. Honestly, if you go to St. John, are you really going to watch tv and look at pictures/wallpaper on the walls? Come on! We had a lovely unit and it was very clean and comfy. In fact, we are saving now with hopes to return in December, and we definitely want to stay at CCV again.

I think one tiny thing I might recommend, but this would be for both places we stayed at would possibly investigate getting some mosquito bed curtains-like the ones that hang from the ceiling, over your bed, to make a tent. I think it's a given that anywhere on the island is going to have a few Mosquitos and our preschoolers definitely left our room door/patio door open more times than normal, but I think the tents might be a good idea for any place on the island. Just my two cents- I still give this place a 5 star rating, it was wonderful and the managers were just so kind and absolutely outstanding :)

I love Coconut Coast Villas. CCV has new managers -- David & Julie, who have been managing the property for only a few months but off to an excellent start at making their guest's stay a pleasant one. Every time I had a question or a request (and I think it was every day), Julie was in the office and promptly assisted me. Also, David & Julie have started picking up and dropping their guests off at the ferry dock at no charge. Before you had to walk or catch a cab. Also, there is now a large dry board posted near the laundry facilities listing the predicted temperature, chance of rain, activities scheduled for that day on the island, etc. -- helpful in planning what you want to do for the day. When we were leaving, David & Julie told us they were in the process of updating CCV's website. I can't wait to see the results. If you are lucky enough to travel to St. John, I highly recommend that you stay at Coconut Coast Villas -- I guarantee I'll be back in February 2015.

We loved our stay at Coconut Coast! It was a perfect transition from our stay on a sailboat in the BVI. It was a short (10 min?) walk from town but I like the peace and solitude more than the hustle and noise of being in the main part of Cruz Bay (as were the other places I looked into). On one side is a rocky beach that meant we could listen to the waves as we slept and there were always breezes off the water. The other side is the salt pond (beautiful heron each day and the daytime shortcut path is like walking through a jungle - very cool and peaceful). We say three peacocks on the property too.

Julie and David were wonderful hosts! They kept in touch by email and saved us a couple of expensive taxi rides by picking us up and dropping us off at the ferry dock. David even made two trips on our way in since there were 6 of us plus luggage and we didn't all fit. They gave us and orientation to the island, advice on beaches, restaurants, etc. and there is beach equipment for guests to use (noodles, beach chairs, fins, masks.)

We were traveling with our two kids (6 and 8) and my in-laws. We got a two bedroom suite and it was perfect. Julie put an air mattress on one bedroom floor for the kids (3 bedroom suite more than needed and 2 hotel rooms elsewhere was more expensive and less space overall). We loved having a large living/dining/kitchen area to hang out in and be able to stay up past kids' bedtime without having to creep around. We weren't there long enough to cook but the full fridge was perfect for cold drinks and milk for cereal in the morning. Food gets expensive and not as easy to find at the beaches so packing a lunch for the beach is a good idea that we didn't figure out until the last day. There are pot/pans, dinnerware, etc. for your use. They provide dish soap and paper towels too.

The kids loved the little pool and the hot tub. We were mostly at the beaches so didn't spend much time there but it was well kept and had plenty of lounge chairs. Towels are not problem - there is a room to drop off dirty towels and grab new bath or beach/pool towels. The washer and dryer are available for use after 3:00 (washer free, dryer $1). Parking was right in front (a real problem in Cruz Bay itself) and we had a rental car for two days.

The place isn't the newest but its very well kept and clean. We didn't see a single bug (except a mosquito or two but they are everywhere on the island). We would definitely stay here again without a second thought. Julie and David are wonderfully helpful. They have office hours and can be contacted quickly by email outside of that. Free wi-fi in the rooms too! Also, very comfortable beds.

Room Tip: Ask for a top room - vaulted ceiling!
