Beautiful

Its so much better in person. I wanted to get away from everything including people, and this was the perfect choice. Coffee on the upper balcony with the ocean sounds and breeze .... every day should start this way!

Thank you Kathleen. We are so glad you enjoyed your time on island at Kiddel Bay Cottage! We agree this is the perfect place on St John to get away from it all. We loved having you as guests and hope to welcome you back soon!

Perfect spot

This is an amazing location. A short walk to an amazing pebble beach which hardly anyone else goes to. It is a great house and the management is very responsive. We will be back. The only issue is the water pressure which is quite low and makes showers a very slow process.

Thank you Jeff! We are so glad you enjoyed your time on island at Kiddel Bay Cottage! Thank you for the heads up on water pressure. We will definitely work on getting that issue resolved asap! We loved having you as guests and we hope to hear from you again soon! -Your Island Hosts

We loved our stay at Kiddel Bay Cottage

We loved our stay at Kiddel Bay Cottage. What an amazing view! We were two couples and rented out the upper level which worked perfectly. You definitely need a jeep for getting up the road to the cottage, but once there you feel you are all alone. Salt Pond bay (which is our favorite beach) in only a couple minutes away and Coral Bay is about a 15 minute drive and offers enough restaurants to get you through the week. The cottage has a view of the ocean from all rooms and a fantastic deck. Kitchen is well stocked. Definitely rent snorkel gear as you are sure to see many turtles, stingrays, fish and we even encountered an adorable octopus when only knee deep in the water. We love St John and will definitely be back to Kiddel Bay Cottage!

Thank you Sarah! We are so glad you enjoyed your time on island at Kiddel Bay Cottage! We agree this is truly a unique spot with so many great snorkeling beaches nearby! Very cool you saw an octopus that close to the shore! We loved having you as our guests and would love to welcome you back to the Cottage soon! -Your Island Hosts

Perfect location if you truly want to get away from it all!

We loved Kiddel Bay Cottage! We traveled as two couples and rented the upper level which worked out perfectly. Only minutes to Salt Pond Bay (our favorite). About a 15 minutes drive to Coral Bay where you will find provisions and enough restaurants to get you through the week. This is the quiet.....you feel completely alone.....end of the island. Definitely need a jeep to get up the road to the house. Spectacular view and well equipped house. Rent snorkel gear as the snorkeling on St John is awesome.

Thank you Sarah! We are so glad you enjoyed your time on island at Kiddel Bay Cottage! We agree, this unique spot makes you feel like you have the island almost to yourselves ~ And Salt Pond is our favorite as well :) We loved having you as guests and we hope to welcome you back to the Cottage soon! -Your Island Hosts

Wonderful visit in Kiddel Bay!

This is a really special house, and I can't say enough great things about the team at Antares Property Management who helped our family tremendously when some of our travel logistics went awry. The house itself is very comfortable. We used the top and bottom floors, and it was nice to be able to spread out a bit for some separate time, but there was also plenty of room for all of us to gather for meals, etc. That said, there isn't a great indoor solution for a large group to gather for a meal; the largest tables are outside, so when if rains, or is otherwise uncomfortable outside, that becomes an issue. Also, only the downstairs part of the house has a dishwasher, so we blended the plates from top and bottom together a few times to make use of that. The location is remote, which we found wonderful. The nighttime sky and sounds were spectacular; it was fun to see cruise ships going by; and we could see sunrise and sunset from our decks. The walk down to the beach was steep in places, but there was also a road, and we drove the older members of our family down to Kiddel Bay because the path was a little too difficult for one of them. The beach at Kiddle Bay is rocky and beautiful, but perhaps challenging to get in and out of with bare feet. You will find a way, however, because the water is freakishly clear there. A nice morning walk down the road gets you also to the deserted Grootpan Bay which is also rocky but amazing. And driving a very short distance on the paved road gets you to Salt Pond Bay where the snorkeling is also fantastic. We would definitely stay here again!

Thank you so much Marti, for taking the time to review. We are so glad you enjoyed your time on island at Kiddel Bay Cottage! We agree this is a special property with great beaches and snorkeling nearby, and little light pollution! We appreciate your suggestion on more indoor dining areas. We will definitely take that into consideration and do our best to resolve that issue. Thank you for letting us be your island hosts! We loved having you as guests and we hope to hear from you again soon!

Perfection in Paradise

Kiddle Bay Cottage went above and beyond our expectations. Kelsey was great at answering my questions and meeting up upon our arrival was super smooth. She made herself available for any questions or concerns during the week, but we had none! Waking up to a private beach with amazing snorkeling and breathtaking views. Falling asleep to the sounds of the waves and the night critters. With air conditioning in every bedroom, even uncomfortable nights were perfect in Kiddle Bay. The kitchen was just right for meal prep for our family of six. Parking was much easier than other homes on the island and with the sandy beaches of Salt Pond Bay just done the road, you barely have to drive if you don’t want to! We won’t even look around the next time we come to St. John; Kiddle Bay Cottage is the obvious choice!

There’s no place like Kiddel Bay!

We have been to St. John a dozen times and this is our favorite spot. Close to Coral Bay, Kiddel Bay cottage is a perfect place for those who want some privacy but quick access to your own beach. The cottage is freshly updated, clean, comfortable and fully outfitted with everything you need. The beach, while rocky (don’t forget your watershoes), has some of the best water and snorkeling on St. John. There are great hikes right outside your door, and Salt Pond Bay are an easy walk from the cottage. But the absolutely best part of this cottage is sitting on one of the decks and enjoying the view. We’ve been to homes in some of St. John’s most luxurious neighborhoods and, the truth is, the view at Kiddel Bay cottage is far superior. The nighttime sky is absolutely unforgettable, as is waking up in the night and seeing a lighted cruise ship make its way past your own little bay. True, you do have to drive a little to get to sandy beaches and restaurants, but for us, that’s all part of the St. John adventure. Highly recommended!

Thank you Jody for your kind words! We are so glad you enjoyed your time on island at Kiddel Bay Cottage! It is truly a unique experience and a hidden gem! We are so glad you got to experience Kiddel Bay Cottage and we hope to welcome you back again soon! - Your Island Hosts
