We have rented villas several times in St John, and this is the best yet! Our favorite areas were the pool/hot tub area and the kitchen/porch/great room area. Both were perfect for our gathering of 3 generations, from baby to grandad. We used the outside grill and the kitchen for almost all meals, although we did squeeze in a visit to Rhumb Lines in Cruz Bay and Skinny Legs in Coral Bay, our favs. The constant breezes thru the great room were wonderful, and we never had to turn on AC in there! Tommy was GREAT, helping us check in, promptly checking with us when problems arose, and coming by to be sure everything was going well. We love the North Shore area because of the great views and nearby beaches. Some of the trees on this property have grown to the point that views weren't as good as at other villas, especially from the BR areas. But from the upstairs porch...perfect! The rooms were nice sized and were well-equipped, and the beds and pillows slept great. Kitchen was well-equipped. Because of the baby and grandparents, we took a car down to the beach. It wasn't the "down" that got us, but the "up"! We would definitely stay here again, but probably not during high season. I think the St John feel is more obvious in quieter times, when there are fewer people in town, on the beaches and roads, and fewer boats at anchor. But that's just how I like it. We will also check out the other properties owned by this group. If they are as nice as Coco de Mer, we would rent them, too! One little suggestion: we have stayed at villas which had more snorkel gear and newer beach chairs that one can carry on your back like backpacks. That would be a nice improvement here! Thanks for a lovely vacation.
My family of 6 stayed at Coco de Mer for Christmas. We had a fabulous time at this incredible home. First, the views were absolutely amazing. The best part of the 9 days we spent there was sitting on the deck off the family room and enjoying the gentle breeze and picture perfect view. Morning coffee was a treat to take in the view of Cinnamon Bay from this balcony. The house has everything .. from the well stocked kitchen to the thoughtful lounge chairs. Each bedroom was spacious with a great private bathroom - and its own balcony. The home is perfectly located to what my family considers the best beach in St John, Cinnamon Bay. Having stayed in other parts of St John, we love Peter Bay the best. It offers a variety of water sports - all incredibly convenient to this house. We will definitely return to this wonderful home.
Great place for a gathering! Beautiful home with a beautiful view! Would have given it 5 stars but the air was out in 3 of the 5 bedrooms. We did ask if it could get fixed, but the repairman wasn't able to complete before our departure.

My family of four spent a wonderful week at Coco with good friends. The kids entertained themselves--playing in the pool, picking limes, searching for lizards in the trees. And for the grown ups, coffee in the morning or a cocktail at night on the balcony is instant relaxation, with the breeze wafting through the lush trees and the incredible view.
The set-up at Coco de Mer is fantastic. Each bedroom is private, the central pool area is great, and the kitchen and living room is spacious and well-appointed. The grounds are incredibly lush. We also liked the location near Cinnamon Bay on the North Shore--quiet and secluded, but within easy striking distance of Cruz Bay to the west, Coral Bay to the East, and all the incredible beaches and hikes in between.
Hard to imagine a more pleasant place to unwind and spend quality time with family and friends.
