About the property

Update on Coral Caribe Villa: We had minimal damage from Hurricane Irma. We received power back to the villa on December 7, 2017. A big THANK YOU goes out to all the linemen that have come to St John to restore power. Their hard work is much appreciated. Three months without power was definitely frustrating. We had a new internet service hooked up in mid February. It is working better than our previous carrier. Wi-Fi calling is also an option. Scott, our son and manager has AT&T for cell service, which works great at the house. We also have an AT&T booster. Cell service, depending on your provider works in Cruz Bay and is spotty for the rest of the island. All beaches and trails in the National Park are open, thanks to the hard work of volunteers and National Park employees. Most businesses in Cruz Bay are open. Grocery stores are open and fully stocked. St John is ready for tourists to come back and enjoy this wonderful piece of paradise.

We have reduced our prices for the 2018 season. The island is recovering slowly but surely. We would love to share our villa with those who would like to vacation on St John. Things will be a bit different on the island, but it will still be the beautiful St John, we all know.

We have added a sleeper sofa and a half bath, so the property can now accommodate 4 people.

Coral Caribe is nestled on a hill overlooking beautiful Fish Bay on the southern shore of St John. This beautiful 1 bedroom upper villa has everything to make your vacation complete. Kitchen has all necessary appliances and utensils. Dining room table seats 4 or enjoy your meals on the expansive deck. Relax on the lounge chairs out on the deck. Wake up to a gorgeous view of Fish Bay from the king-size bed. Full bathroom is located off the bedroom. Ceiling fans and the trade winds usually create a comfortable temperature in the house. There is an air conditioner if needed. Comfortable rattan furniture to watch television or gaze out the patio doors and enjoy the view. On clear days, you can see St Croix. Beach chairs, beach towels and coolers are provided for your use, as you enjoy your adventures to the many beautiful beaches on the island. Beaches on the north shore are approximately a twenty minute drive. St John is two thirds National Park, so you can also hike the many trails on the island. Cruz Bay is about a ten minute drive from the villa. You can enjoy many dining options as well as music at the local establishments. The water at the house runs through a UV filtration system, so it is safe to drink. Bathroom towels are provided. Wi-Fi is available. AT&T and Sprint carriers normally work on the island, although cell phone service is spotty. Our manager/son, Scott (who lives on the lower level) will greet you at the ferry dock. He can bring you to Coral Caribe Villa or take you to a Jeep Rental of your choice and you can follow him to the house. You may also want to stop in town to pick up groceries on your way. There is limited Taxi service to the villa. A Jeep rental is recommended. Air mattresses available for additional guests. $25 per night per additional guest.

About Melisa Sprangers

It was always our dream to own a house on St John. We spent our honeymoon at Cinnamon Bay Campground and fell in love with the island. We have been back many times to vacation. My husband is a contractor and I have a small accounting business. We hope to start spending winters in St John, to get away from the cold of Wisconsin.

Melisa Sprangers purchased this villa in 2016

Why Melisa Sprangers chose Fish Bay

We finally found this house with a fantastic view in the very quiet neighborhood of Fish Bay. We purchased the house in June of 2016. With the help of our son/manager and a few other people, we have updated and remodeled. The upper level is ready to rent. The two bedroom lower level is still work in progress. We hope many people will enjoy our piece of paradise!

What makes this villa unique

We love the beautiful view of Fish Bay. I love listening to all the birds, frogs and insects outside when we go to bed at night. The sounds are so soothing. The abundance of stars in the sky in St John is amazing. I can sit on the deck for hours gazing at the stars and watching cruise ships leave St Thomas, all lit up. If you have any questions about the property, you can always call 920-540-9156, we will try to answer everything we can and make your vacation a memorable one.

Truly great stay

  • 5 of 5

Coral Caribe ranks among the best vacation rentals we've ever stayed in - and there have been quite a few. It's everything you want - great location, responsive owners, clean, incredibly well appointed (right down to fresh smelling towels :), perfect layout, great bed, ridiculously lovely view (also from said bed), easy parking, bird shenanigans to watch, really nice kitchen with every implement we reached for, breezes and the distant sound of waves, and just plain comfy. We loved every moment of being there. If you're still unsure, let that go, this is the place you want.

Thank you Melissa, Scott and James for doing it right. We'll be back!

Lovely, private & Secluded with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week at Coral Caribe in Fish Bay. This upper level 1 bedroom villa is lovely, with tropical colors, a full wall of sliders overlooking the huge deck and glorious Fish Bay. All the usual amenities (full kitchen, toaster, BLENDER, beach chairs & noodles, coolers, linens, beach towels) and good accessible parking for your jeep. The road leading to the villa is steep and curvy, of course, BUT PAVED so it's a breeze. Close to Cruz Bay - about 10-15 minutes, but very private and secluded location. Breezy, especially in the evenings/over night. No bugs. Lovely bird and insect sounds hum and sing. Really great. Hosts are wonderful.

You should have my contact information. Melisa

Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 8 days at Coral Caribe. It was everything we had thought it would be and more. The view from the deck is fantastic. I spent many nights in my enoo hammock on the porch. The breeze at night is great. Melissa and her family were very welcoming and provided us with everything we needed. We look forward to our next visit.

Happy, Light, Airy, Beautiful View, a Charming Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great attention to detail, everything we needed was there. I needed a flashlight - found one. I needed some scissors - found them. Great supplies, toiletries, etc. were there.

Power plant had a huge fire while there, entire island blacked-out, but we were fine, they turned on a generator.

Would happily return again and again.

You do need a 4-wheel drive, this road and many on island are steep with switch-backs, and a little rough. No problems with our trusty jeep. (which we got for an amazing rate by renting from Budget Downtown location (Contant) on St. Thomas. Very near airport, short taxi ride, and the rate was 1/3 of the going jeep rates everywhere else.)

Our favorite property on St. John

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed on three other St. John properties in the past but the Coral Caribe Villa was our favorite! It was absolutely perfect for the two of us. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spacious, having free movie channels was a surprise, the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and the location of the villa was ideal to explore the island. The outside deck and the view from there could not have been any nicer. We really enjoyed ourselves and hated to leave. Hopefully we will be able to return to the villa and to the beautiful island of St. John again at some point in the future.
