“Amazing stay in Coral Bay STJ!”
Reviewed 29 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

This was our 2nd trip to STJ with our teenage children. We highly recommend this villa for anyone wanting to stay in Coral Bay on St John and would definitely return to Anchorage Aweigh. The owners, Scott and Patricia built this villa themselves and live in the villa next door. They took meticulous care in planning and building this amazing villa and it shows in the workmanship and attention to details. The layout provides great privacy, protection from the seasonal winds, and breathtaking views. It has 2 king bedrooms each with their own outdoor showers (oh so relaxing!), fully furnished kitchen, on site laundry, beach towels and chairs, coolers, and a grill if you want to cook outside. The covered patio was perfect for a sunrise breakfast and coffee, listening to the wildlife, and simply relaxing out of the sun and in the light breeze. They also have many books and DVDs to choose from for your entertainment and the pool was a nice place to take a dip after a long day at the beach, hiking or kayaking. St John is truly an amazing place to visit with so much to do and see or if you just want to get away, this villa would provide a peaceful retreat with the comforts of home away from home. The communications and rental transactions were as easy as can be. Scott also offered advise on rental Jeep places, things to do, and some off the beaten path activities. Well done Scott and Patricia! Thank you for renting to us.

“Top notch communication and accommodations!”
Reviewed 21 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Anchorage Aweigh is a gem. Attention has been given to every detail. A smile and a calm comes over you the minute you walk in the door. Owners were off island at the time, but left Jane ( the caretaker) to see to our needs. What a lovely girl! Thank you for allowing us to share "a piece of paradise" with you.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 23 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.
