Periwinkle Cottage of Coral Bay is a perfect rendition of a traditional West Indian cottage with modern amenities such as ceiling fans and screens. Located at the end of a private road, Periwinkle has a million dollar view of Coral Bay, historic Fortsberg, and Norman Island in the BVI. Periwinkle is close to the village of Coral Bay with its variety of restaurants, shops, and grocery stores. The location is ideal for exploring St John's best beaches on the North Shore, the South Shore, and the East End.

You enter Periwinkle through a vine-covered arbor into a quiet brick courtyard. The upper level living area is open and airy with vaulted ceilings and fans. The living room has three wicker chairs, a love seat, tables and reading lamps. All upholstery is covered with cotton slipcovers which are washed regularly. The kitchen is well-equipped for home cooking.

Beyond the living area is the upper gallery, equipped with Phantom screens which may be raised or lowered. The gallery dining table seats four guests. Two places to lounge on the gallery include a sofa and a hammock.

A staircase to the lower level leads to a 10' by 20' pool on the tiled pool deck furnished with chaise lounges and tables. Nearby are two equal-sized bedrooms, each with a private tiled bathroom.

Every room in Periwinkle Cottage has stunning views of Coral Bay.

Picture Perfect Cottage in Coral Bay
Posted on: 5/16/2018

We could not have asked for a better stay on St. John. Periwinkle Cottage was EXACTLY what we were looking for for this trip! When we arrived onto St. Thomas, we were in immediate contact with our hosts, Wayne and Rosanne. They were so helpful meeting us after getting off the ferry, taking us up to cottage, and showing us around! They were available by way of text and answered every question we had, not only about the property, but about the island itself! (They even brought us out a new propane tank, at the drop of a hat, when ours ran out while cooking dinner)
The cottage was immaculate when we arrived! Someone took great pride in making sure it was well stocked, beautifully decorated, and in great working condition! We had everything we needed the entire time we were there! The view of the bay from the pool is amazing!
We are so glad we decided to keep our trip booked after the hurricanes hit. Although the island was still in repair (lots of debris, trash being collected, working on lines, and fewer vegetation) we still couldn't have asked for better food, friendlier people on the island, and most of all the amazing beaches! They were still gorgeous, and the water was still crystal blue! The perfect amount of relaxation and adventure this couple on their baby-moon, before twins arrive, wanted!!
Thank You!!

Great spot!

This was our first stay at Periwinkle but not the first in Coral Bay. We loved the cottage. Everything about it! Views are great, deck, pool, hot tub, grounds and very private. We'll definitely go back!

A dreamy 2 weeks on my favorite island were made possible by the relentlessly perfect weather, the coral bay vibe and this ideally located and designed cottage. Simple, complete and convenient to everything. My new favorite st John destination.

I stayed here in the beginning of June with my boyfriend and another couple. We loved this rental so much! We were speechless for a while just taking in the view. The property managers were awesome and easy to meet up with so they could take us to the house. The pool and hot tub were an awesome thing to come back to after a day on the beach. The driveway up to the cottage is a little rocky, but we managed to do it perfectly fine with little struggle in a AWD Toyota Yaris that we rented. I saw lots of reviews saying a Jeep would be the only way to get up there and got nervous about our rental car but we had no problems! This house was truly a delight to stay in. The upstairs living area was indoor/outdoor and it was amazing at night with the breezes. I would recommend this cottage to anyone! Would even consider using it again if I ever came back with 4 people again. This place does not disappoint!

My husband and I spent a perfect week at Periwinkle in June. House was beautifully appointed with quality dishes, cookware, linens/towels, etc. Pool and hot tub were both spotless and so much fun, and the view is to die for. Screened in porch is huge and perfect for relaxing and eating meals. Close to Love City market for supplies and Skinny Legs for burgers. We chose Coral Bay for the quiet, and were very pleased with our decision. The location of Periwinkle added to that solitude, as the house is situated up a dead-end hill with only the sounds of goats and chickens to listen to. Also a short drive to Salt Pond Bay beach which was our favorite for hanging in the shade and basic snorkeling. Would 100% recommend this perfect spot and look forward to returning asap.

Goats and chickens and donkeys, oh my!

Stayed here for 12 days in September with 2 daughters. Great location just a few minutes from groceries and dining in Coral Bay and convenient to all the best beaches. East facing slope so we got to enjoy the sun & moon rises. We loved the pool and hot tub. Hung out on the screened porch and enjoyed the hammock. Nice breezes and no need for A/C. The outside grill was nice. Wi-Fi worked great. Books were a plus. Beds were comfy. Drank the tap water with no ill effects :) Privacy was great (except for one unannounced visit for pool maintenance). Kept doors unlocked and felt safe. The last .2 miles to the villa was a bit bumpy, but we got used to that :) Of the 4 places I've stayed on St John this was the best deal.

A Gem!

We just returned from our most favorite family vacation to date. Periwinkle Cottage was perfectly suited to our family of four. We loved the indoor outdoor living and the views from every room. It was even more beautiful than we had expected from the pictures and very clean. The ceilings were higher than we thought, and there was such an open and airy feel. We didn't even turn on the A/C due to the breezes and fans that also kept mosquitoes at bay.

Having reusable containers and coolers already at the house enabled us to pack lunches for the beach. There were also four beach chairs that came in very handy. We rented snorkel gear from Crabby's near the Coral Bay Dolphin Market which is a very close to the cottage.

Periwinkle Cottage is an absolute gem! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends and family, and we hope to return to it someday.

Thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing vacation.

This trip was our second visit to Periwinkle cottage. We love the cottage, the view, the location, and especially the nearby beaches. Thank you for sharing your home.
