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

Still beautiful

House was perfect for us in terms of layout. Well equipped. All of the basic kitchen items, as well as some not so basic, were provided. We snorkeled every day all around the island. Enjoyed Skinny Legs, trivia night at Oasis, and Aqua Bistro. Great vacation.

We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation at Livin' Life Smilin' and we hope to welcome you back in the future! Steve and Pam

This was our second trip to Livin' Life Smilin' and it was just as wonderful as our first. The house is very comfortable with incredible views and wonderful stargazing. The location is perfect - quiet yet close enough to Coral Bay center's restaurants and stores. We enjoyed many of the South and East End beaches and found the snorkeling to be surprising good, with new coral growth and lots of fish. We certainly hope to return!!

Quiet, beautiful and perfect!

We would highly recommend Livin Life Smilin to families wishing to visit St. John. Coral Bay is close enough to Cruz Bay to drive for cruises or more restaurant choices but less touristy and more authentic. The set up of the house works well for a family with teens- master bedroom on main floor with 2 separate bedrooms and bathrooms below. The house is stocked with most of what you’d want/ need in the way of dishes, body boards, beach chairs, movies, a few games and even corn hole to play on the multi- layer deck. The view from the house overlooks Hurricane Bay- so you wake up every morning to gorgeous sunrises over the water. We would definitely return to Livin Life Smilin and know that anyone who chooses to stay here will not be disappointed.

Steffany, We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Livin' Life Smilin'! We love to wake up to those beautiful sunrises and we have also spent many nights with family and friends in lively corn hole games! We hope to welcome you back again! Steve and Pam

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!
