Anchors Aweigh is Truly a hidden treasure. You can not put into words the true beauty of the views that you see. Absolutely breathtaking. The villa was magnificent! Private Outside showers - Genius idea! The morning Sunrise took my breath away. Total Zen! A must to be had by all!

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Anchorage Aweigh took my breath away. Truly. The pictures were beautiful, but when I walked in the door I was captivated. To experience this villa and the views from such a beautiful orientation will rank this as a top vacation in my lifetime. I WILL be back! Every inch had a stunning view of Coral Bay. From the smiley face in the bay to the rainbow over the Moravian Church, I knew I was some place special.

If cleanliness is next to godliness, then this is another reason to call this place heavenly. I felt like the first visitor ever. The villa is beautifully appointed and well supplied. The bed was amazingly comfortable and the view at night from the bedroom was so pretty. The outdoor shower was just plain sexy!

Patty and Scott, our hosts, we're so friendly and helpful. The knew about local restaurants, the BEST beaches, hikes, and beautiful snorkeling locations.

“Beautiful Vacation Rental”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Anchorage Aweigh is a lovely site that is beautifully kept and oh-so-comfortable. Scott and Patricia make every effort to provide a private, luxurious getaway for their guests with a sweeping views from the breezy screened deck, sparkling pool, and lovely furnishings to ensure a restful visit. We toured St. John with John and Patricia's suggestions, which were spot-on. We saw areas of the island that were only known to locals, and enjoyed an experience that was so much more than the tourist getaway. The beaches were spectacular, and our dinners out were delightful. Coral Bay is a bit off the beaten track, though likely to develop over the next years since most of St. John is a national park, leaving only Coral Bay and Cruz Bay for private development. You can experience both upscale and local elements in Coral Bay, which is a mix that we treasure. The house is nothing short of spectacular, with all the comforts of a luxury resort, but yours alone! John even repaired our flat tire when we arrived. Highly recommended.

“Great Views, Great Place, Great Owners”
Reviewed 14 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at Anchorage Aweigh, a surprise gift for my upcoming birthday. The hillside views are amazing, and the location lends itself to strong breezes day and night, which make the patios a wonderful place to be. The pool is a terrific start and end to each day, and the owners are wise enough to even have a shaded corner of the pool for the days that you take in too much sun. The house was designed and built superbly, which means when you shut the doors and windows at night and turn on the AC, you will not hear a peep from outside. A morning cup of coffee on the ledge of the downstairs outdoor shower is truly a 'bucket list' experience.

As they will recommend, you really want a capable 4x4 to both get to and from the property and explore this less populated side of the island - the journey out to the Lameshur beaches almost require it. You will also want to check the VINow website for when the cruise ships arise (usually Tuesdays and Thursdays) , and you will want to avoid Cruz bay and the 2 or 3 beaches they have excursions to (Trunk, Cinnamon, etc) - don't worry, there are many better beaches much closer to the cottage!

If money is no object you can find interesting places for all 3 meals, but food and dining is extremely expensive on the island, so we tried to eat breakfast in and take sandwiches out to the beaches for lunch, which let us splurge for dinners. Truth be told, if you keep it simple with Skinny Legs burgers and takeout pizza from Indigo Grill, you probably wont be eating too much cheaper if you cook at the villa. Dry goods seemed to be more expensive, so I would travel with cereal, crackers, nachos, coffee etc if you have room in the bags. Dehydrated fruits would also be good, as the cost of fruit and veggies on the island are steep.

The real treat for us were the owners - kind and knowledgeable, helpful but not overbearing, available but always respectful of our privacy. They maintain the property very well and their love for the island and the house shows. I couldn't ask for a better vacation location, and we hope to be repeat guests of Scott and Patricia for many years to come.

My wife and I stayed at this fabulous villa the first week in May this year. It was our first trip to St. John and the USVI. Friends had recommended we stay in Coral Bay for a relaxing vacation. It was a great choice! Anchorage Aweigh offers a fantastic view of the harbor and quaint community. It is a short drive to several bars and restaurants where we enjoyed some of our meals. Scott and Patricia are wonderful hosts who know all the best places to explore. Anchorage Aweigh is a great villa in a wonderful location in Coral Bay. Highly recommended.
