“Sea Cottage is all we needed for a 3 week vacation away from it all”
Reviewed April 9, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Sea Cottage is easy to get to at the top of the mountain on the way to Coral Bay, from Cruz Bay. The road through the mountain to Sea Cottage is well maintained and mostly paved. It is down the mountain a little from the road, private, quiet with a spectacular view of the Caribbean. The wrap around deck made it difficult to leave! My husband and I loved being there, a perfect romantic run away.

“I've dreaded writing this!”

I'm afraid to write the truth about our visit, thinking others will find this beautiful little place as enchanting and wonderful as we did. And since we are planning on a return visit next year, I worry that a favorable review might limit our available dates. Having said that ,in all seriousness I feel obligated to report the truth. Hopefully this will not put Jorge and Monika on the spot for greater expectations. This is a special place for special people. I will not go in to great detail except to say if you love your mate, calming breezes, flash rain showers, your own lovingly prepared breakfast on the covered porch high above Coral Bay, being barefoot, showers in the moonlight, sunlight,rain while being buzzed by humming birds and an absolute stunning view. . .
Oh hell book it! If not you'll be sorry. Thank you Jorge and Monika, you're the best.

“Private, peaceful and serene cottage with beautiful views”

Sea cottage is even better in person...the tree frogs, the sugar birds, the views... My fiancé and I enjoyed every second of our stay here. The cottage is tucked away on a private plot on Bordeaux Mountain and has every amenity you would possibly need...even has beach chairs, a cooler and beach towels for excursions to the beach!! The cottage is light, airy and bright with beautiful, rustic Terracotta tile floors, white walls and local art. The outdoor shower was amazing, surrounded by tropical trees. I recommend this cottage to anyone who loves simple sophistication, nature and solitude... afterall, isn't that what St. John is all about?! We are already planning our trip to go back next year!

“Pure relaxation”

If you are looking for peace and quiet and escaping the craziness of the world.. this is your place. Sea cottage is a perfect getaway for two. The wrap around porch is gorgeous and has the most romantic surreal setting. The outdoor shower was amazing and the views off the porch are breath taking. Monika and Jorge are the most genuine people who truly were the fantastic hosts. This is a non-tourist spot where you can escape the real world and enjoy peaceful heaven. The sound of tree frogs put us swiftly to sleep and the beautiful sunrise awoke us. Needless to say we will be back for sure!

“Heaven on Earth”

Perfection is the word that comes to mind. Sea Cottage is a perfect retreat for two. Monika and Jorge are wonderful hosts and have created a very special place. The outdoor shower is just beyond words, along with the view that will keep you in awe throughout your stay. The cool breeze through the cottage at night is heavenly.

For all that this snug retreat gives you, it is a bargain. Why stay in an overpriced resort room when you can have all this along with privacy for a fraction of the cost? St. John proved to be the slice of heaven we were looking for our wedding and honeymoon. We will treasure our time at Sea Cottage forever. Thanks Monika and Jorge!

“The best view ever, didn't want to leave the porch, so relaxing.”
Reviewed May 13, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Be prepare to walk up and down 34 steps, there's a roosters, or as they call it a chicken that likes to let you know he's on the Mt. The donkeys, deer and other animals are cool. otherwise it's very private and quiet, you barely see Monika or Jorge, sorry I miss you Jorge, Karl wanted to tell you about a badder tank. Their dogs are really good. We'll be back after we ski the alps.

The Sea Cottage is just the way it is shown. There is everything to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. The view is beautifully different every time you look. The outdoor shower with hot soft rain water, followed by a big fluffy white towel was wonderful. We loved sleeping with the windows open with the cool breeze. On top of all this, the owners Monica and Jorge were just as lovely. We were met at the fairy dock and followed them to the cottage. The music and lights were on soft and low....so inviting. showing us around the cottage, and giving some helpful tips. They also gave us a canvas bag with one of Monica's paintings on the front, full of brochures. We can't wait until next year...We will be back.
