Stonegarden Cottage offers you a private retreat where you will enjoy your dream vacation on Saint John in the US Virgin Islands. Offering the privacy, comfort and views of a villa, this unique rental home beckons many of our loyal guests back year after year.
This beautiful St. John vacation rental offers a gorgeous island view and on-site nature trails, close proximity to pristine National Park Beaches and restaurants and shops of Coral Bay - the peaceful side of St. John.
The cottage nestles within a shady, tropical forest, high up the steep slopes of St. John's Bordeaux Mountain. At the foot of the mountain lies picturesque Coral Bay harbor; beyond unfolds a panorama of peninsulas, islands, beaches and glowing turquoise channels that run east as far as Virgin Gorda and the Anegada Passage. This is the view Islands Magazine chose as the top spot in the world to watch the sunrise of the new millennium.
The Upper and Lower Levels of the cottage can be rented together or separately.
Lower Level: For the couple looking for a combination of affordability and comfort, the Lower Level is a perfect choice. Private and quiet, this charming apartment has tasteful decor, art by Caribbean artists, stained-glass windows and beautiful views to the British Virgins.
Enjoy the comfortable amenities of a queen-size bed, air-conditioning, private bath with shower, a fully equipped kitchenette, dining table and chairs, and comfortable reading chair and lamp. You'll especially enjoy the private dining deck with its bistro table and chairs, lovely harbor view and direct access to the trails of Guavaberry Woods. Stairs down from the deck lead to a private garden with a hammock and grill for your use. There are sitting areas around the property where you can relax and enjoy the peaceful and cool woods, tropical fruit trees and flowering plants. The Lower Level has its own separate entrance, driveway and parking space.
The unit was built underneath the deck of the main house and with solid cypress ceiling panels to ensure you peace and quiet. A perfect getaway for the couple looking for affordable comfort and privacy.
Onsite Nature Trails: The best of St. John's natural beauty and astonishing biodiversity lies on-site at your doorstep. A trellised archway of hanging tropical flowers greets you as you enter and walk down a short stone stairway to the front door. The large (2/3 acre) hillside property is an ecological wonderland that invites wandering -- beautiful hand-crafted stone paths and gravel trails on several different levels lead you through the lush hardwood foliage of Guavaberry Woods, where picturesque and unique ponds, a meditation garden, bridge and benches, plus gardens of orchids, frangipani, hibiscus, bouganvilla, citrus and tropical fruit trees delight the eye.
Cool Retreat: Steady tradewinds, an easterly view and the lush surrounding forest make Stonegarden Cottage a comfortable tropical getaway year-round -- cool, quiet and peaceful. After a day on blazing white sand beaches or out on the glittering sea, it is delightful to return up the mountain to your forest retreat, savor a frozen drink while enjoying the view or gaze into a lily pond while hearing the breeze rustle the treetops.

Reviews for this vacation apartment rental in Coral Bay, St John, Virgin Islands
"We enjoyed our stay at Stonegarden Cottage immensely!!! The (LowerLevel) was perfect! Cozy yet not crowded for the two of us! The colors inside and out are so cheery and 'islandish'! It was amazingly clean and well kept... We had everything we needed for cooking and for enjoying our time at the cottage and away from the cottage!
Thom and Jackie were so friendly, helpful, attentive and prompt! The gas grill tank valve was not opening.. Thom came right over and changed out the tank so quickly, with the most positive attitude. One day we locked our house and car keys in the cottage. We felt so badly calling them. They came over within minutes to rescue us, with a smile and an amazingly positive attitude!
The stone paths, benches, porch, bridge and front patio allowed us to enjoy the outside and the view while we were at the cottage. They added square footage to our cute little cottage!
We spent time out there daily enjoying the geckos and foliage!
We could not have asked for better hosts than Thom and Jackie! They desired to make our stay comfortable and stress free! They deserve the greatest of praise!
Thanks so much for allowing us to stay at your cottage!"

"We loved our stay at Stonegarden Cottage. The lower level was very clean and comfortable. We were amazed that the cool breezes coming in the windows were enough to keep the room cool throughout our stay. This was a first. Despite assertions that the breezes are enough in other villas, that never seemed to be the case. At Stonegarden we never needed to use the A/C! The cottage was equipped with everything that we needed....It was nice to have some non perishable foodstuffs there, such as cooking oil, spices, coffee,etc. and the filtered water was a godsend.
Jackie and Thom were wonderful. They showed us around, pointed out things, and answered our questions. They were eager to help us if anything had come up. Luckily , it didn't.
We enjoyed the paths and tried to imagine the stream bed with water rushing down it as it must do during the fall.....
We very much enjoyed our vacation in Stonegarden Cottage and look forward to doing so again when next we travel to St John."

"Perfect from start to finish! "
My wife and I spent 8 nights in the lower level of this wonderful house. Everything is exactly as advertised-and more! The view is amazing; we spent every evening on the upper deck. (We were fortunate that the main level was not rented so we got the run of that deck also! ) The constant breeze coming up from coral bay made those evenings very pleasant and bug free. We never turned on the a/c as it was very comfortable at night in the apartment with the windows open. We had everything we needed for our stay- coolers, chairs , dishes and grille etc. As first time visitors to saint John we had lots of questions even though we had done thorough research on the island. From my first phone inquiry to Thia the experience was very smooth. She was very helpful with ideas and pointers for our visit and the whole experience from then through booking and the trip itself was a no problem experience. Their on-site managers, Emily and Anthony are an absolute delight. They gave us spot on recommendations for restaurants, beaches and grocery stores; and were just super pleasant to talk to all around. We already are making plans to rent both levels when we return in a year with friends! If you're fortunate enough to get to visit this jewel of an island i would highly recommend stonegarden cottage. While you're here don't miss aqua bistro, miss Lucy's on jazz night, and shipwreck landing! Oh, and if you want a beach to yourself- put the jeep in 4wd and venture out to great lameshur beach. It's rocky but the snorkeling is great and everyone seems to go on to little lameshur where the ruins are and the beach is sandy. We spent two afternoons there and had it to ourselves 98 percent of the time!"
