A great place to stay in Coral Bay!

This was a wonderful house, perfect for our family of 4. It was very clean with a nice kitchen. The view is amazing. And there are good restaurants at the bottom of the hill (definitely need a 4-wheel drive vehicle!).

Thanks very much for the great review. We are happy to have Rhumb Runners back after the storms. Several of our repeat guests have really appreciated the remodeling and improvements that we made to the Villa. Hope to see you again. Mike and Chris

Beautiful property with outstanding view and GREAT owners!

Beautiful property, comfortable and very private. Rooms and bathrooms have good size and are very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. Location of the house is a little difficult to access because it is almost at the top of the mountain but with a 4WD Jeep should have no problem to get there. Actually I will advise to rent your 4WD in St John and NOT in St Thomas. We had some problems with Budget Rent a Car in St Thomas airport and we don't need problems while in vacations, right? The owners are super nice and ready to help. Consequences of the hurricanes are still a little visible in the surroundings but the house is in perfect condition. Thank you Mike and Chris for letting us use your little piece of heaven.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a wonderful review of our Villa. We loved having you guys stay with us and we would love to have you come back soon. Also great advice on the car rental...we always recommend our guests renting their cars on St John, and also to rent a car as soon as you make a booking. 4WD is a must on St John... Just a point of clarification; our Villa is on a paved road at the top of our hill.... Bordeaux is our mountain, and is about a thousand feet higher than our house...but you still need 4WD to get to our house and pretty much every thing else on St John... St John has come back, and Coral Bay has made great strides considering what Irma did to our community...Thanks again for staying with us...we are so happy you had a great time...Mike and Chris

Literally the best place I’ve ever been in my life

We have worked very hard getting Rhumb Runner Villa back to her former self...with many new improved features: all new and expanded deck, new furniture, new floors, the house was painted inside and out, the list goes on...Thanks again for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Fabulous!

The villa was even better than the pictures. It was clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable and had everything you need including wonderful beach chairs, nice beach towels and a cooler. The absolute best part was the incredible, surreal view from the wrap around deck! We also loved the pool especially each afternoon after a few hours at a new and fabulous beach! The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. We would recommend this villa to anybody - in a heartbeat!

Home Away From Home BUT In A Paradise Setting!

Rhumb Runner is definitely home away from home BUT in a Paradise setting. We celebrated 40 years of wedding bliss - and it was! The house does not lack in amenities. The view of Coral Bay was spectacular and the morning sunrise was a nice way to ease into the day. Michael & Chris were very helpful and made our planning for this getaway stress free. The snorkeling was excellent - Maho Bay became our favorite - early morning with a picnic breakfast - not a better way to start the day. Then a dip in the pool back at the house to plan the rest of our day was refreshing. And a stop by the Nat'l Park Office in Cruz Bay to get all the details is a must. We would definitely recommend Rhumb Runner and hope to go back some day. P.S. But the cherry on the top was walking into the house the evening of Thanksgiving to find two plates of Thanksgiving Dinner and pumpkin pie with a nice bottle of wine waiting for us... talk about taking care of your guests above & beyond!!

A slice of heaven!

This was our 5th visit to Rhumb Runners. How do you describe paradise? When we arrive I take a deep breath and remind myself how lucky we are to have found this beautiful, perfect, location and house to stay in. Coral Bay overall is a wonderful spot, close to less crowded beaches, convenient food store and great selection of restaurants. The house was lovely the first time we saw it many years ago, but Mike and Cris continue to put in improvements over the years, new kitchen, flat screen TV, original artwork, new chairs, the list goes on. They added some great beach chairs, easy to sling on your back and hike with. We used the grill on the deck and the kitchen to cook some great meals. Of course the views are priceless. I saw another review that mentioned a steep drive up. I've been to several other houses, and this is one of the easiest to get to with this kind of view. My sister was staying in another house about the same height but the view was more hills, less water. In addition to the beautiful views this is a very private location. Loved going to the beaches early, the snorkeling was great, turtles, rays, all kinds of fish, but is was wonderful to relax at the house in the afternoon. Our 23 year old son loved it as well, we were a little worried he would get bored with his parents but we all agreed it was a fabulous trip. Can't wait to go back, I wouldn't dream of staying in another house!!!

Trip of a lifetime!

My husband and I brought our 16 yr. old son, and the 3 of us enjoyed the most lovely week of our lives together at Rhumb Runners. This villa has the best view if Coral Bay one could hope for; sitting on the deck watching the boats in the harbor and looking our towards Tortola was sublime. It is high on a hill with breezes, no bugs, and a huge kitchen for cooking in after a long day of hitting the beach. We would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from it all in paradise.

Great Place, Wonderful Owners

This home exceeded our expectations. We stayed for first two weeks of February and found the description of the house to be very accurate. Mike and Chris have gone to great lengths to make this a beautiful place. The art work and decor are extremely tasteful. The owners take care to maintain the cottage and it was very clean. The layout of the home is simple but functional and our party of four were very comfortable in this space. Mike met us at the base of the road and lead us up the hill. He spent about 20 minutes orienting us to the home and island living. The introduction was appreciated and helpful. Some of the earlier reviews make reference to the steepness of the road. One gets used to this quite quickly and its not an issue, but a four wheel drive is very much worth having. We primarily snorkeled and the location is great for this activity. On any given day you can get to calm water quite easily by use of opposite sides of the island. Our whole family gives "Rhumb Runners" high marks! Eric and Kathie Dreier

Pictures don't do it justice!

We had a wonderful time at this house. This was our first trip to St John and we wanted to be away from the "big city " in Cruz Bay. The Coral Bay location of this house was perfect for us with easy access to north, south, and east side beaches. There is a great grocery store at the bottom of the driveway that could not be more convenient (and it was very well stocked). The house itself was perfect for my husband and me. It is very private and secluded and the pool was a great break from the ocean in the afternoon. The owners were great to work with in the planning process and were very responsive to all of our questions. We would definitely rent here again!

Our Winter Escape to Rhumb Runners

We (a Medicare eligible but far from immobile couple) returned to our hill farm home in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region late Saturday night, Feb. 28, 2015 from a week at Rhumb Runners to find that the brutal, relentless winter we had escaped was still going strong. That week was a wonderful respite and Rhumb Runners, the Coral Bay area and the east end of St. John were what made it so. Perched high above a busy area next to Coral Bay harbor (up 5 switchbacks on a challenging, but paved, road, which our Jeep Wrangler from Cool Breeze rentals was able to handle when dry without resort to 4-wheel drive, absolutely required when the road was wet or in some other situations encountered), Rhumb Runners was ideal for us. Rhumb Runners is private, bright, clean, roomy, airy (no shortage of wind), with exceptional views of the harbor, east end and the BVI beyond, and a nice, very private pool. Chris and Mike were ideal hosts, took care of small problems (e.g., replacing a new, but non-functioning microwave) and interesting company to be with, although after introducing us to the place, they let us have our space to ourselves. Aside from occasional showers (mostly brief downpours in the middle of the night), the weather was good (much better than NH!!!). We had dinner each night at local restaurants, examples: best conch fritters in 18 years BVI and USVI experience at Miss Lucy’s; great grilled yellow snapper escobiche at Concordia; best seared tuna had anywhere at Aqua Bistro. We enjoyed the local beaches: Salt Pond (a hike downhill, uphill back), Round Bay (called Haulover south, uncrowded and steps from your car) and Vie’s at Hansen Bay in the east end (an uncrowded, sandy beach for which a donation of $2.50 per person was requested and happily provided). We also went to Waterlemon Bay beach (requires a level hike of maybe 2/3rds mile in and out, but what was said to be best snorkeling was too far out for swimmers of our level). Driving by other north shore beaches to the west we found that they mostly lacked sun early in the day and became very crowded later. So, to sum up, we had a great week and very much enjoyed our stay at Rhumb Runners, which we highly recommend.
