Great Week

Our family of 4 just returned from a week long stay in the villa. The views were amazing and the house had everything we needed. The house was clean, well supplied and offered use of beach chairs and cooler, which was super handy on our beach days. The Sonos system was an extra bonus!! We loved our stay and would recommend to anyone!

Awesome Vacation

My wife, two adult sons and I really enjoyed this vacation. Easy access to great beaches, good restaurants and the house is great. Road to the house is rough, but no problem with 4WD.

Secret Seashell, beautiful and Private

The house was exactly like the pictures, clean and in great conditions . Jared was easy to communicate with and very responsive. While there is ac in the bedrooms, it would have been nice to have it in the living area especially if this was a family vacation and we were cooking more and playing games in the living area. Yes, the road was a little rough from the main road to the property, not any worse than a country road in Texas. The privacy was perfect for our honeymoon.

Comfortable, clean, and very private

The place was very clean, pretty new, and because of the condition of the road leading in, also very private. It was nice to be able to relax by the pool after a day on the beach. The sound system is very nice, just load the Sonos app on your phone before you get there. While the description correctly states that there is A/C, note that it is only in the bedrooms. Jared is also a key positive in the rental experience. Any questions we had leading up to the visit were promptly and thoroughly answered. All in all, it was a very pleasant stay, and well above most other rental properties we have stayed at.

Beautiful property, great outside entertaining

The property is clean and well maintained. Jared, the property Manager was very helpful when we arrived. The road to the house is a dirt road with pot holes but don’t let that detour you. It’s not that long and the property provides a lot of privacy. We felt safe with the electric gate closed for privacy and security. Recommend that you rent one of the jeeps that are all over the island. We frequented Aqua Oasis for a late lunch and drinks. We loved sitting at the outside bar. Groceries at the Dolphin were plentiful. Shopping at Skinny Legs had a surprisingly good inventory. We’ve been to St John two times before but we’ve never stayed on Coral Bay before. It adds some travel time because so much of the activities start in Cruz Bay or St Thomas. We booked a trip through “Stormy Pirates” to go to The Baths on Virgin Gorda and White Bay on Jost Van Dyke. The tour started on St Thomas but we were picked up and dropped off on Cruz Bay. Highly recommend. Don’t forget your passport. Thank you St John for your hospitality. We’ll be back.

Great St John Location

Estate Fortsberg was a great St John location near Coral Bay that our family really enjoyed! The road to get there was a bit challenging (less then 1 mile off main road), but you are rewarded with the extra privacy and excellent ocean views. The house itself was great! Everything that we needed for our party of five: Kitchen is well-stocked, the bedrooms are very comfortable, and the outdoor entertainment area (pool + cabana) is awesome! As many other reviews have stated, the house is extremely clean and the service from Jared was great. Thanks so much for providing the great home base for our vacation!

Fantastic Property

Everything was very nice, immaculate. And don't be intimidated by the road! It is indeed an interesting road (!) but imminently passable. We enjoyed the pool, the outdoor shower, the gas grill, etc. In fact, we did not eat at a restaurant the entire trip -- we stocked the kitchen, returned to the grocery store once, and really enjoyed preparing meals in the house. Wonderful hospitality at a fantastic property. We highly recommend. The only negatives were: we had no cell service there, so you should either be OK w/ that or make sure your carrier works with WIFI calling. I would not let that dissuade you.

Perfect Quiet Location with Amazing Views

The house is beautiful!! Even better than the online photos. Location is great & views are amazing!! Nice breeze. One thing to note is that the two bedrooms are accessed outside and below the main rooms & master bedroom. No inside stairs. Not a problem with older kids but something to consider if children are smaller. We’d definitely book this house again! Easy check in & check out process.

We did not want to leave!!

The house is just as described and looks like the pictures. The view is to die for and the outside area is incredible- this is where we spent our time when we were not at the beaches or on the water. It was great to have six beach chairs ( looked almost new), a large rolling cooler, and a sun umbrella provided as we went to the beach every day. The beds and pillows were so comfortable ( and I am into comfort) and the house was very clean. There is mention of the rough road to the house but there are rough roads all over St John. That is a small price to pay for staying on an island that has no traffic lights and is not crowded. The house is centrally located on the island and an easy drive to Coral Bay where there are fantastic restaurants. Another great benefit of staying at this house is the manager, Jared. He arranged a taxi for us from the airport and then met us at the Ferry. He waited while we picked up our rental vehicles and went grocery shopping. Jared took us to the house and showed us the "lay of the land." In addition, Jared is a musician and told us about several places where we could hear local music on the Island, which we did. We almost felt like we were "locals." One piece of advice- the house is surrounded by a lot of vegetation, ( with various critters) so keep dry goods in the refrigerator and/or microwave and you will have no problem. We will be back!!

Beautiful, spotless, comfortable! We loved Secret Seashell!

This house was beyond clean. This house was beyond comfortable. It was well stocked. The views were amazing. We spent a lot of our time at the house out by the pool. Having an outdoor fridge, speakers, a grill, and pool, and oh yeah - 80 degree weather every day - made this perfect. Like someone else said, the rough road in was intimidating at first, but when you get used to it you actually value it because it guarantees your privacy! We brought our twin fifteen-year-old daughters and they were just as thrilled as my husband and I were. Even though Secret Seashell is at the Coral Bay end of the island, we made trips to Cruz Bay and lots of beaches with no problem. We actually loved being at the quieter end of the island. There’s still a great grocery store nearby and Skinny Legs is just down the road for a decent meal. Back to talking about the house, another amazing thing was the outdoor shower off the master bedroom. It was so relaxing taking a warm shower with a view of the ocean! Our daughters insisted on using this shower too. What else? The WiFi was nice to have. Overall, this place is incredible and we’d recommend it to everyone!
