Mooncottage romantic villas in St John was a labor of love. It wasn’t easy to build here. It took 7 years to complete. We bought the property in 1998 and opened our doors in 2004. And my greatest pleasure is always to read the Guest Book upon my return. It is filled with heart warming things that people have experienced here. Last year we held a contest on Facebook and asked our former guests to tell us a short story about their experience here. Many relationships and (and familied) started here.

Our Mooncottage end-to-end experience is recommended. 

When arriving at STT airport, we recommend you take our private taxi driver (90 bucks and worth it.) They will take you to the Redhook "People" Ferry. Leaves every hour on the hour until 11 PM. We recommend well in advance that you hire Courtest Car Rental "Greg" who will pick you up at the ferry dock. Also, we offer "provisioning" set up in advance from one of our local partners so that what you want to eat and drink for a few days is waiting for you. Then a 20-minute drive to Coral Bay and our delightful onsite manager Jalyane will meet you and escort you to the villa. Voila.
