Blue Wrasse - Cute Little Cottage Newly Renovated!

Bedrooms 1
Half Baths2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 - 5 nights


About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Wonderful location for a family on a budget that survived Hurricane Irma with no damage. Newly renovated in 2018 with lower level brand new half bath added and new flooring and deck! Gorgeous views of Coral Bay. Cute little cottage (this is not a luxury villa) sleeps up to 6: two on queen size bed in bedroom, two in king size bed in the loft, and two on the pullout futon. Updated kitchen is fully stocked with all the necessary utensils, plates, cups, and cooking supplies.

This cottage sits at the bottom of the lot and thus has many steps (82) down to the unit. This cottage is probably not for the elderly.

The cottage has air conditioning throughout, with the exception of the screened in porch and screened-in bathroom - what a view from the full bathroom! The bathroom was recently renovated with all new tile and fixtures. A second (half) bath was recently added on the lower level bedroom which too has been renovated.

Relax on the deck and porch while sipping cocktails looking at the boats anchored just below. Plenty of nearby restaurants and beaches to keep you busy all day long!

In order to keep our rental rates as low as they are, the cottage only comes with 1 bath towel, 1 washcloth, and 1 beach towel per registered guest per week and linens for the number of registered guests at arrival. The cottage does not include in-stay housekeeping or towel/linen service. If you would like in-stay cleaning services you can arrange that directly with our on-island managers at your own cost. Additionally, if you feel you may need more at your arrival, please ask when making your reservation to pre-pay for 1 additional of each towel per person per week ($50 for 2 guests, $75 for 4 guests, and $100 for 6 guests) and we will add that fee to your reservation. There are several laundromats on the island as well if you would prefer to clean your own towels during your stay.

For those who have been to St John before you can rest easy that the road to the house is a concrete straightaway with no switchbacks!

Why John Hilbert chose Estate Carolina

We just love the peace and quiet of Coral Bay and the view from the cottage is spectacular! We bought this particular house because the drive to the house is up a simple straight concrete road with no switchbacks and no issues

What makes this cottage unique

The porch and view for this price is undoubtably the best feature of Blue Wrasse Cottage but the accessibility is also wonderful. Many if not most rentals on St John require a SUV to get to them and have harrowing drives around steep turns and in many cases unpaved roads. Not at Blue Wrasse Cottage - simple easy drive straight up a concrete road!

The property was in excellent shape!

The island is coming back! The views, beaches, hiking and people, coupled with the property, is the reason we will be going back. There is no other way to go to the islands.

An Ideal Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had the good fortune to rent out this beautiful property on our New Year's trip to St. John. Though the island was still in recovery from recent hurricanes, the cottage was in great condition. The location was ideal - private and quiet but convenient for getting around. The property managers were extremely helpful and gave some great tips on what to do on the island. The cottage itself had a wonderfully equipped kitchen and great views. It was amazing!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words! Hope you can come visit again! Thanks for supporting St John!

Our stay at the Blue Wrasse Cottage was wonderful! It was exactly what we were looking for. The tree house explanation is perfect! It was very cool. This trip only consisted of my wife and I, but we definitely are going to go back and take the kids. They would love the tree house feel with that amazing view. Everything was nice and clean. Coral Bay was really nice with excellent restaurants. The drive to the beaches every day was not very far at all. Cinnamon Bay was only about a 15 minute drive, along with all the other beaches in the area. We will definitely be back!

Blue Wrasse St. John

  • 5 of 5

Villa was in great condition and was perfect for our group.

Location in Coral Bay was close to secluded beaches and great restaurants.

Minimized the drive to reach the beaches and snorkeling that we wanted to get to.

Treetop Millionare Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Very friendly, accommodating owners. Property was set up with everything to keep your mind occupied and relaxed. Shed at top made travel around St. John less stressful with its beach chairs and snorkel gear. View out window is even better than the pictures. We plan to return if still a available next year
