Perfect Vacation in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a beautiful home with an amazing view of Coral Bay and everything you could possibly need for a perfect vacation. Directions to the house were great and we had no problems at all finding it. The drive up to the house is bumpy but this is the norm for the area and it was easier to get to than other houses we've stayed at on STJ. The parking area was also pretty flat and easy to turn around in which was another big plus. The home itself is even more beautiful than the pictures! We loved everything about it! So much space, a gorgeous view, and too many amenities to list here. We really enjoyed having the snorkel gear, beach chairs, cooler, and especially the beach umbrellas and sun tent since the shade is gone from the beaches post-hurricane. It was also fun to look at the fish and coral identification books each day after our snorkel trips and read a few stories from the Tales of St. John book. We also enjoyed playing some of the Caribbean music from the CD collection in the house to set the mood for our vacation. The master bedroom is huge and we used the extra twin-sized mattress that is available so our 6 year old daughter could sleep downstairs with us and there was still plenty of room to spare. We found the beds to be firm, but comfortable and loved that they were king-sized! After sleeping downstairs a few nights we decided to try out the upstairs bedroom with the A/C because we like the cold air and also the white noise it makes. We found both rooms to be very comfortable. Both of the showers had great water pressure and it was nice to have the option to shower indoors or in the screened shower. I also really liked that the downstairs (open air) porch is just as big as the screened porch upstairs and has the same great view. There are a couple of comfy chairs out there too. Rik and Ann were great about responding to questions I had both before and during our stay and we had the pleasure of meeting them for a drink one evening. We loved staying in this beautiful home and I hope we can stay here again soon!

Loved the privacy, porch and views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Little Palm 05/19/2018 - 05/26/2018. We absolutely loved the place. It was everything they described, and even better in person. The kitchen/great room is more than adequate, but we never sat in the great room or even turned on the television. Its all about the incredible screened in veranda. Roomy, well furnished and bug free! We ate there, read there, talked there, everything on the veranda. Great view of Coral Bay harbor, and conveniently located to the restaurants, bars and convenience/grocery stores in town. The "Outdoor" orchid shower is beautiful and private. Everything for the beach is there too.

We met Rik and Ann one night for drinks and live music at Pickles and had a great time meeting them and their friends. Really a great community down there. Most places were open, and a couple places opened while we were there. If a quiet place with great access to beautiful beaches, great food and really nice people is what you are looking for, Little Palm is the answer. Rik and Ann were really great about getting back to us when we had questions before and after we decided on Little Palm which is a huge plus. Strongly recommend.

Beautiful peaceful villa perched above Coral Bay with owners that we happen to know & love.

  • 5 of 5

Little Palm Villa is a lovely property that makes you want to sit & relax on it’s wrap around porch the whole day but then you would miss all the fabulous beaches and snorkeling and restaurants and eating.

Fun and Functional Villa with Spacious and Open Design Thats Perfect for this Location

  • 5 of 5

We have never stayed in a building like this before, but would like again soon. The first impression when walking in for the first time... "Wow, this place is big!" The great room on the main floor flows out on to the deck without a barrier. The deck has a fresh covering of insect screen that allows you to feel like your are living in the trees without the unwanted visitors. The overhang on the roof provides plenty of shade and protection from periodic rain bursts while taking in the view of Coral Bay, ocean and green hills. The staircase to the lower level is also enclosed in screens and has a nice little garden in the middle. The lower level has a second bedroom a bathroom with a second walk-in shower. The deck on the lower level is not screened, and has some clothes drying lines that we used daily for our swim suits and towels and instead of the electric dryer for our mid-trip cloths washing.

The kitchen has nice functional appliances, coffee maker and toaster and microwave etc. We used the kitchen and outdoor grill most days for meals to save a few bucks and get some variety and found everything we needed to implement our meal plans.

The wifi worked well, about 25mps, sufficient bandwidth to watch Roku box on TV while using phone and/or tablet to surf web.

St John is still working to recover from the violent hurricanes from the fall of 2017. They are open for business, but there are some sights and sounds of cleanup and reconstruction in taking place on the island. Everyone made us feel welcome.

Lastly, The owners of Little Palm are great! They live in the house when it is not being rented and stay in the area when it is being rented. This arrangement has advantages that we have never experienced in a rental villa situation. It's in their nature to continue to work on and improve the unit while living in it. They know the area and the people living there. We enjoyed learning about their life on St John and got several ideas about things to do and see while meeting them for some cocktails during a local music event. While not invasive, they are available to help you enjoy your stay.

Hints: The downstairs shower is inches away from the water heater and easier to regulate water temp. Also, leaving the driveway is a little blind, I would give the horn a honk just so anyone heading down hill will be aware that you are entering the road.

Amazing View property!

  • 5 of 5

The property is a real gem. What a great view of Coral Bay and the mountains. Birds singing every morning and evening, we wanted to stay longer, still miss it. Rik and Ann are excellent hosts and the home has everything just bring your shorts and sandals.

Good Morning view is unbeatable

  • 4 of 5

Little Palm Villa is truly amazing. We arrived late in the night and were exhausted. The home is open air with an open floor plan so it was hot and we just went straight to bed in the A/C. The next morning I woke up and turned on the ceiling fans, made coffee, and sat down at the table and took a deep breath. This is the islands anyways and the open air concept here made us realize how lucky we were to be on vacation in such a beautiful place. When you walk in the door, there is an open bathroom to the right. It's screened in and private. I loved taking showers in there and listening to the birds. There is another bathroom downstairs with a great shower and a ceiling fan if you prefer to not be outside. Once in the door you are in a beautiful open space. The kitchen has EVERYTHING, really, and the window overlooks the sweet flowers blooming in the courtyard. I loved being in the kitchen and seeing that amazing view - ALL THE TIME! There's a ton of space, plenty for a family or two couples. It was just the two of us. There are three tables to enjoy eating, chairs and ottomans on the big screened porch to sit and read or nap. There are two TVs with Roku which included Netflix and other free streaming sites. There's a great little bar too. On the way downstairs, there is a space with everything you need for the beach - snorkel sets, beach chairs, umbrellas, a large cooler, and some smaller ones. You really don't need to bring anything with you. Downstairs is a bedroom with a king bed and another porch, a full bath, and a portable A/C unit. There is a hot tub which we did not use. There are plenty of beach towels too and a washer/dryer. We opted to stay upstairs in the small bedroom with the wall A/C unit. We slept very well. Coral Bay is great. Skinny Legs - fun for drinks and burgers. Aqua Bistro - nice bar next to the bay as does Thirsty Donkey. Shop at Dolphin Market next to Aqua Bistro. Clean and well stocked. Lime Inn in Cruz Bay is great. Rent a jeep from Lionel Jeep. Justin, bartender at Skinny Legs, also works water sports at Cinnamon. Salt Pond Bay - sea turtles, relaxing, a hike though. Francis Bay was our favorite. Park right next to the beach-spend the day. Leinster is a long hike and Saloman is strenuous but so worth it! You can swim around to Honeymoon. Haulover has the floating bar. Saving BVI day trips and Reef Bay Trail for next time! Love St John and plan to call it home soon. Thank you guys!
