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!

We were so pleased with our choice of the Sea Cottage in the Bordeaux Mountain section of St. John. Here for our honeymoon, it was the perfect romantic hide-away. The view from the patio where we shared breakfast each morning was nothing short of truly spectacular. Quiet and peaceful, perfect location to hit the restaurants in Coral Bay along with all the beaches on the North Shore. We highly, highly recommend you look at the Sea Cottage when making your plans to stay on St. John.

Celebrating our Anniversary at the Sea Cottage was one of our best vacations ever! As soon as you step into the Sea Cottage you can feel the tranquil and peaceful surroundings take you in and put your mind and body automatically into island time. The craftsmanship, attention to detail and decorating with local artist pieces shows the care and thought in building the Cottage. It is centrally located which makes it very convenient to get to any part of the Island. Monica and Jorge were the perfect hosts; from meeting you on the island, making you feel welcome in their home and answering any questions you may have to what St. John has to offer. Eating outside on the patio and taking in the relaxing views was such a great way to enjoy your meals. The views are something that you see in tourist guides of the Island. It was fun feeding the Sugar Birds and watching them while we sat outside. Staying at this Cottage was such a great way to reconnect and relax with your significant other. Monica & Jorge, Thank you again for your generous hospitality and sharing your piece of paradise with us. We very much look forward to returning to the Sea Cottage and seeing you again soon!

The cottage, the view and surrounding tropical forest are just amazing. The cottage had everything you need for a short or extended stay. Although it is not large, it is well designed, providing all kinds of places for storage of clothes, groceries, and everything else we brought with us. It is the perfect amount of space for a couple. We also really enjoyed the outdoor shower. The furnishings in the kitchen, along with the grill on the deck, provided us with everything we needed to prepare some memorable meals. It is so relaxing to sit out on the deck, sipping your morning coffee, enjoying the view across the tropical forest all the way down to the ocean, feeding and watching the birds, and just doing nothing! The location is perfect to get to both ends of the island, and everything in between, to do some great snorkeling, hiking, and exploring plantation ruins. The towns of Cruz Bay and Coral Bay both offer great restaurants and shopping. Both also have grocery stores that met our needs. Last, but not least, Monika was a wonderful host. She met us and we followed her to the cottage. A few turns off the main highway and we arrived. She showed us everything we needed to know about the cottage, answered all of our questions, and shared great information on the area. If you are looking for a private, non-resort vacation, this would be hard to beat. We have a lot of great memories from our time at the Sea Cottage. Our only regret is that we didn’t plan to stay a little longer. Thank you Monika and Jorge for sharing your cottage with us and we hope to be back again in the near future.

Our stay at the sea cottage was simply magnificent. Monica and Jorge have really thought of everything a couple would need in order to have a comfortable, convenient, and life changing stay at the Sea Cottage. We loved sitting on the porch, drinking coffee, and swinging in the hammock in the morning times. We cooked in the kitchen most nights and had everything we needed. We even had our gas tank run out one evening and Jorge was over to fix it within 30 minutes. The island itself is simply breathtaking and the Sea Cottage provides the perfect haven for a vacation in paradise. Would recommend this property to anyone and we will definitely be back. Thank you, Monica and Jorge!

The saying "if it seems to be too good to be true, it probably is" applies in most cases but Sea Cottage is a shining exception. Review after review talked about how perfect the cottage is, how amazing the setting is, how wonderful the view is, how accommodating the owners are, how each detail is taken care of, on and on, over and over. As a first time vacationer through vrbo.com, I was hesitant and a little nervous about the process. All of that hesitation and all of those nerves proved to be silly. Sea Cottage is a gem. The owners are fantastic people, who I can't wait to see again in the future. Details like the beach chairs, beach towels and cooler, a well stocked kitchen, thick fluffy towels, the wonderful assortment of playlists on the iPod, the hammock (ohhhh, the hammock - loved the hammock), the outdoor shower (ohhhh, the outdoor shower - loved the outdoor shower more than the hammock), the journal of previous guests and the sugar bird feeder make the experience of staying at the Sea Cottage so special, so magical, so unbelievably cool. I would recommend Sea Cottage without a moments hesitation. Staying here will turn a trip to St. John into something beyond your imagination. In my opinion, your searching for the perfect spot should stop now. You have found it. Selecting any other property on St. John would be a mistake. Staying at Sea Cottage will be the best decision you make ... after you have decided on St. John. NOTE: As of November 2013, AT&T is the most reliable cell service provider on island. If you must be in contact with the mainland, I would recommend looking into a temporary AT&T phone. Our regional carrier told us that texting would work but that proved to be spotty at best ... most of the time we could not send or receive texts.

What a charming cottage in a captivating environment for a reunion of two childhood best friends to take time away from busy lives and catch-up on the last 25 years. The cottage is clean, comfortable, cheerfully decorated with a well appointed kitchen. The wrap-around deck with breath-taking views was a perfect spot for enjoying meals or an evening cocktail. The beaches were within a 10 to 15 minute drive. Our favorite is Salt Pond. The owners are a delightful couple. They met us at the ferry, helped us rent our jeep and led us to the local grocery store to stock up on food for the week. We were then able to follow them to the cottage where they answered all our "island" questions. Their gracious welcoming to St. John took all the stress out of a late night arrival. Sea Cottage is well equipped for your vacation needs. A hairdryer, iron, 4 beach towels, 2 beach chairs, beach umbrella and cooler added to the convenience of our vacation. There is even a rain umbrella if Mother Nature is not fully cooperative. I would recommend this lovely home as well as St. John with it's remarkably, beautiful beaches as well as a non-commercial atmosphere.

Our experience at Sea Cottage could not have been better. From the moment we booked our stay, Monika and Jorge were accommodating, thoughtful, and provided useful information regarding Jeep rentals, et cetera. One we arrived at Sea Cottage, the view was even more spectacular in person. Jorge showed us around the cottage prior to leaving, which was wonderful. Sea Cottage proved to be a perfect "home base" for our stay on St. John. It was wonderful to drive back to the cottage on Bordeaux Mountain and enjoy the mountain breeze at night. The veranda was gorgeous and was a beautiful place to sit at night and enjoy the lights in the distance and the stars above our heads. The cottage is private, beautifully decorated, and unparalleled for the price we paid. It is a beautiful place for couples to spend time with one another. We are eagerly looking forward to returning to Sea Cottage on our next trip to St. John. You will not find more attentive, friendly, or knowledgeable homeowners to rent from. I highly, highly recommend Sea Cottage.

My wife and I were looking for another location to stay for our 8th anniversary after two previous stays at Maho Bay Eco Resort (we got engaged there). We found the ideal location at "Sea Cottage" after a search on VRBO.com. Everything in the description sold us, and Monika and Jorge were the perfect hosts. The quiet days, absolute privacy (end of the road), and amphibian symphony (cacophony) at night provided and ideal setting for this couple (we were quite tempted to stay another week (or two)!). A Toyota Yaris (rent at Cyril E. King Airport in St. Thomas and ferry over - Budget) was quite adequate for the entire island (drive slowly on the deeper ruts!). Like the other reviews, the outdoor shower was wonderful (especially during the full Harvest Moon), and the far-off lightning storm was a great show. We absolutely would recommend Sea Cottage for a couple looking for the ideal stay on St. John. We're looking forward to our next visit already!

Recommended for: Adventure seekers, romantic getaway, sightseeing.


Steve and Rebecca , MD , 09/2013

Sea Cottage is a charming cottage that glows like a charm on the mountainside. The photos are accurate but being there is so much better. Secluded on the quiet side of St. John, high up on Bordeaux Mt, the views are spectacular and the breezes delightful. The tree frogs are the only sound breaking the quiet serenity of your locale. Sugar birds and chameleon lizards, we loved being tucked away in this sunny haven. The sunrise welcomes you each morning to decide again, which beach shall we snorkel at today? I miss that daily task and look forward to a chance to return again. Lovely landlords.
