Our hidden gem in the Caribbean
We came back to Siempre Azul in summer 2019, eleven years after our first visit during our honeymoon in 2011. It was just as fabulous as we remembered! The gentle waves of the ocean are like one of the settings on the white noise sound machine we use for our kids at home-- except it's the real deal.
The house is perfect for a romantic getaway, located on the less populated side of St. John, but not too far from a few shops and restaurants. On a map or viewed from the water, the property shares a little peninsula with another property, but you can't even see that other house, and they can't see you. It's like being on a private island. We love it.
We watched the sunrise from the lounge chairs in the front yard,
we took outdoor showers every day, and we ate all our meals outside on the front balcony. Down in the yard, the mosquitos and gnats can get you, but on the balcony they stay away-- maybe because of the way the breeze blows through there. It's such an amazing place to sit and gaze at the water and the horizon.
Something that wasn't there last time (or maybe in our honeymoon bliss we just didn't notice it!) are laundry facilities down in the cellar. Having access to those machines was great since we'd packed in only roller carry-ons and could wash a load of clothes mid-week.
The kitchen is well stocked with everything needed for cooking a full meal. We made grilled steaks, oven-roasted potatoes, cheesy omelets, cookies, toasted pecans, pancakes on the griddle, and even smoothies in the blender. We also boiled and then grilled a fresh lobster we caught that day from the water across Coral Bay.
The owner is incredibly responsive and attentive, just as he was eleven years ago. You really get the feeling he's trusting you as a friend with his private home.
As we left, we talked of course about "next time" and wondered what we would do if "our" little house ever changed hands and wasn't available. We decided we'd try to find something as close to it and as similar as possible!
This was a completely awesome experience and property. First, Chris was great from the beginning of the booking process all the way through to the end of the stay. He was always quick to respond to my questions and ready with information to make my stay better.
Now about the property, it was awesome. Very well built and well maintained. It was the perfect place for my wife and I to spend our 25th wedding anniversary. We really liked the location on the Coral Bay side, and had plenty of options for restaurants and a small grocery store. It was a great location to launch out and take in beautiful beaches. After a long day on the beach the hot tub was the perfect place to unwind before a peaceful nights sleep. Want to go back now and stay right there.
30th Wedding Anniversary Trip
The location by the ocean looking out across Coral Bay toward BVI is amazing! Apart from an occasional boat or the wandering local goat herd, there was no one around to invade your private little oasis. Given the impact that hurricanes Irma and Maria had on St. John, this property weathered things very well. Unfortunately, it is evident the total island recovery will take some time. Regardless, we look forward to returning to St. John in the future to witness the revitalization of this eartly paradise. It is one of our favorite destinations.
Glad you enjoyed my ocean front property for your 30th anniversary. Please come back again sometime.
Have a great 2019 summer!

Awesome House and View!
Everything about this home, location and view met our expectations. Perfect for a two person getaway. We hit the beaches in the morning/early afternoon and returned home most evenings to cook in the well-stocked kitchen, soak in the hot tub and enjoy a game of horse shoes. Will definitely return.
Glad the house was everything you expected. I appreciate you taking the time to write this great review. Please come back again.

We couldn't have picked a better place for our anniversary trip to St. John. We have visited St. John several times in the past but had always stayed on the Cruz Bay side. I was a little apprehensive about staying way over on the east side, but it was absolutely amazing. The house was perfect...great view, right on the water, amazing hot tub, easy drive, and you can walk to Miss Lucy's! Getting to the sights and beaches was easy...maybe even quicker than from the west end. Salt Pond is less than 5 minutes away! We were also amazed at the amount of grocery stores and restaurants. Thank you to Chris (owner) and Steve (manager) for helping us with such a fabulous trip!
Into Spring on St. John
We really enjoyed this house, and Chris, the owner was super helpful. If you take a look at the drone video available on YouTube, you will get a very accurate view of the place. The only real surprise for us was that the pond adjacent to the house is a bit stinky. Mostly not a problem, because the prevailing winds blow the other way. But when the wind changes direction, it's a bit funky. Loved the very private feel of the place. We spent most of our 10 days on St. John just hanging out at the house, relaxing. Just sitting on the balcony, gazing out at Coral Bay, and enjoying the gentle breezes was very nice. The house is clean and well maintained. There is plenty of gear in the kitchen for meal prep, and there is even some beach gear in the garage.
L'île de Saint- John est le plus petit et le plus silencieux des îles Vierges américaines. 8 mile, 30 minutes en voiture panoramique à l'est vous emmènera de Cruz Bay, le restaurant principal et une excellente zone commerçante à la plus petite communauté de Coral Bay. Siempre Azul est pas loin de la plage Salt Pond à la pointe sud. Sentier de randonnée Ramshead commence ici et serpente dans la montagne pour un éblouissement 200 pi. Élevée vue panoramique. Plusieurs plages locales se trouvent ici tandis que les plages célèbres de Saint John sont parsemées le long de la Côte-Nord. Les découvertes archéologiques, de nombreuses ruines et sentiers de randonnée intéressants abondent.
