Livin’ Life Smilin’ survived Hurricanes Irma and Maria and is ready for you to enjoy! Amazing unobstructed views, sounds of the waves below, secluded yet near it all!

Enjoy the breezes and beautiful St. John National Park ocean views from the expansive decks of this 3 bedroom, three bathroom house (includes two private enclosed outdoor showers). All bedrooms have separately controlled air conditioning. There are also fans in each bedroom and the main living area has 3 large ceiling fans as well as 4 sliding glass doors to bring in the great trade wind breezes.

Livin' Life Smilin' has a spacious living area and master bedroom upstairs with plenty of natural light from the many windows and glass doors. Comfortable seating and outdoor dining area, in addition to an outdoor grill and washer and dryer. Two levels of large open deck space. Two lower level separate entry bedrooms are located downstairs. Lower level deck includes comfortable rocking chairs and a hammock for lounging and stargazing! All bedrooms have access to decks.

Internet (Hughes) and television (Dish) have now been installed and confirmed working! The house also has a DVD player and a large DVD library with selections for all ages and interests. Feel free to bring your own DVD’s if you have specific television watching interests.

Livin' Life Smilin' is conveniently located near Coral Bay shops and restaurants and hiking trails. Beautiful landscaping, great ocean breezes, plenty of parking, internet, a well stocked kitchen and washer and dryer make this home the perfect getaway for couples or families!

If you are looking for a vacation rental with the feeling of being away from it all, yet close to restaurants, grocery stores, beaches and hiking, then "Livin' Life Smilin' is the perfect choice for you!

Please note -

If you have never been to St. John you should realize that the roads can be very rough and roads and driveways can also be steep. We highly recommend that you rent a vehicle which is either 4 wheel drive or all wheel drive. Jeeps are the preferred and most commonly rented vehicle on the island.

We also recommend that you rent your vehicle on St. John and not on St. Thomas. The car barge from St. Thomas is not always reliable and it is not unheard of to wait for several hours to get a spot on the car barge. Also, if you have a problem with your car while on St. John, resolving that problem with a St. Thomas rental can be time consuming.

*Cleaning Fees -If only the top level (1-2 Guests) is rented the cleaning fee is $100.00 total. If both levels are rented (3-6 Guests) the cleaning fee is $200.00 total

Great family getaway

We had a wonderful stay at “Livin Life Smilin” and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet family-friendly getaway with access to all you need for a great vacation: close access to serene beaches, coziness of Coral Bay, and the off shore breezes from the east side of St John. The villa’s proximity to the national park made for quick access to public beaches not frequented by visitors from St Thomas and Cruz Bay, which allowed us on several occasion to have entire picturesque beaches all to ourselves.

Awesome House!

We had a wonderful vacation at Livin Life Smilin! It was a very comfortable and well stocked home. The views are breathtaking and the breezes kept us cool. Perfect sunrises to start your day! The Antares group were wonderful to work with from booking to the end if our stay.

Nice family stay

We really enjoyed our stay at Estate Zootenvaal. Our family of 4 had plenty of room to spread out and not feel cramped. One of my favorite things was the outdoor showers! Everything was as described and conveniently close to Coral Bay for restaurants and grocery. Great communication throughout the process with both the owner and property manager. The drive way was a bit rough but manageable with 4-wheel drive. We would stay there again for sure!

Gorgeous views

We enjoyed our stay here. The views were stunning, spending time on the decks was lovely. The house was very comfortable for us. In a convenient spot close to Coral Bay shops and restaurants. We made good use of the beach chairs and coolers. Thank you to our hosts!

Perfect! Great views, location, and comfort!

We loved staying at Livin Life Smilin! The views were wonderful with incredible stargazing - we even saw the lunar eclipse from the deck! The house itself was well-equipped, clean, and comfortable, especially the mattresses. We never needed the AC because the cooling breezes kept us comfortable. The layout provided privacy for both couples but still felt cozy. The location was perfect - quiet but close to Coral Bay and Skinny Legs. We visited Brown Bay for the first time - we had the beach to ourselves for most of the day and the snorkeling was the best we saw. We'll be back!

Thank you for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Livin' Life Smilin'! And it sounds like you enjoyed one of our favorite spots - Skinny Legs! Brown Bay is our favorite trail since it is so close to the house and you rarely see anyone on it or at the Brown Bay beach - we hike it almost every day when we are on the island. We hope to welcome you back in the near future! - Steve and Pam

Great house, great location, incredible views!

Absolutely loved our experience in St John and at Livin Life Smilin'. Great location as we loved the laid back feel of Coral Bay. Exploring the beaches never dissappointed - hiking to brown bay with conch everywhere, snorkling with sea turtles at Mahoe Bay, etc, etc - every beach offered something unique. Some very good restaurants but we loved Skinny Legs down the road. The house was perfect for 6 of us - 2 adults, 2 kids 13yr, 2 'kids' 21yrs old - the upstairs/ downstairs set up was great offering some separation when needed. The management team and owner were great / very responsive and offered recommendations and helped answer all our questions as it was our first time to St John. The deck and views were outstanding - highly recommended - miss it already!!

Todd, Thank you for your review - we are so glad you enjoyed your stay on St. John and at our home, Livin' Life Smilin'! Brown Bay trail is our favorite also and you just can't beat Skinny Legs for burgers and drinks! We hope to welcome you again to our piece of paradise! Steve and Pam
