Dancing  Dolphins Villa is just 5 minutes to the quaint village of Coral Bay and  just 10 minutes from the first in the string of world-famous beaches  within the Virgin Islands National Park along the north shore of St.  John.  

Near  the main house entrance and covered parking, guests can enjoy a lovely  1400 square foot patio with loungers, wet bar, shaded sitting area, gas  BBQ grill, and an outdoor table perfect for alfresco dining. After a day  of beaching, sightseeing or shopping, the 'tiki bar' invites guests to  relax with a cool drink and an occasional dip in the refreshing pool  with the dolphin fountain bubbling in the background.  

With  traditional island design, Dancing Dolphins Villa features AC  throughout, beautiful mahogany framed, arched windows, creative native  stone accents, tile flooring, teak cabinetry and stone counters.

Entering  the main level of the villa, guests are greeted by a large formal  dining table, great room with comfortable seating areas framed by full  wall sliding glass doors that open to a full width deck overlooking  gorgeous Coral Bay and the Caribbean Sea beyond. A fully equipped  gourmet kitchen and an adjacent casual dining area completes the great  room.  

For  guests who may be working remotely while on vacation, or those needing a  private location for home schooling, a small study is conveniently  located on the main level just off of the Great Room.  

Access  to the lower level is by a partially covered stone walkway between the  driveway and main house. A large foyer on the lower level is perfect  spot to stow luggage and have those beach bags ready to go! A shared  full bathroom is located immediately off the foyer. Adjacent to the  foyer is an open sitting area with a comfortable couch and chair,  television, elliptical trainer and small desk. All lower level bedrooms  are accessed from these lounge areas. 

Through  December of 2020... former onsite caretaker Rob lives discreetly on the  west end of the property, in a quiet separate cottage. Rob is longtime  resident, musician, culinary artist, and captain of Harmony Charters...  one of the most beautiful sailing vessels in Coral Bay... we highly  recommend going sailing! Just ask us how! Beginning January 2021,  Dancing Dolphins new owners may be using the caretaker cottage from time  to time; please inquire. Your privacy is ensured.

My husband I recently stayed at Dancing Dolphin, in beautiful Coral Bay.

The home is wonderful with stunning views from every room. Rob, the manager, was very helpful and friendly. We would love to come back with family and friends soon!

Great house. Spacious, comfortable, with lots of amenities.

My family of 6 stayed at Dancing Dolphins the week after Christmas. We’ve been coming to St. John for over twenty years and have stayed at many houses in that time. This was one of the best. The house has a lot of space (4 bedrooms, though 3 are on a different level from the master and accessed through a separate entrance) and is fully air conditioned. The villa has a lot of great amenities, a very nice (though small - but not tiny by St. John standards) pool, and a great outdoor seating area with bar. The view over Coral Bay is absolutely stunning. Location is great, probably a 5-10 minute drive to the nearest north shore beach (Francis).

Spacious Luxury

My adult family of 6 plus a 3 year old stayed at Dancing Dolphins on St. John for a week in May 2018 and really enjoyed the house and its location over Coral Bay. Rob and Joy, the caretakers, were gracious, unobtrusive and always smiling when we needed them. We were grateful that the hurricanes had not damaged the house much and that needed repairs were done well. Curtains were not up in the bedrooms yet, but I suspect they are on their way. The home is designed well, with a beautiful master suite on the upper floor, connected to a small office, living area, large galley kitchen and large dining room. Sweeping views from all rooms! Outside, there is a really nice shaded living area and bar overlooking the splash pool. Downstairs, there is a nice bathroom, two bedrooms separated by a large and cool shaded living area. Both bedrooms have equally great views. There is a large washer-dryer set downstairs and an array of diving fins to borrow. Both levels of the house have porches that make great gathering areas or quiet places for books. All the photos on the site are accurate and nicely done. There is a nice market/grocery (Dolphin Market) less than 10 minutes away and it served us well with our food needs. It will run out of a few things from time to time but the staff knows when they'll be resupplied. Nice places to eat on the Coral Bay side (Miss Lucy's for lunch, Pickles in Paradise, Aqua Bistro). We are all cooks and enjoyed the kitchen. It is about a 20 minute drive to Cruz Bay, where you can find Mongoose Junction and more places to go, such as Longboard and Lime Inn. A few sketchy people wandering about downtown, but we never felt unsafe. The main beaches are 10+ minutes away and we enjoyed those awesome attractions! Unfortunately, Cinnamon Bay Campground is devastated and abandoned - the concessionaire has disappeared. Parking lots and beach are open, though! Trunk Bay fees are waived for now but the facilities are open and park rangers are on site. Caneel Bay is closed, so there is practically no access to those beaches. Overall, we had a wonderful time at Dancing Dolphins and can't say enough about the hospitality of Captain Rob (who we missed playing the accordion but Pickles was absolutely packed the night he played there) and Joy. We had great communication with the owners before and after the hurricanes. Book it.

St. John is back!

The property is wonderful, great views, great location. Coral Bay is back in full swing, restaurants, markets, shops open and fully stocked. Beaches are empty, parking is easy, even the St. Thomas airport was a breeze. Now is the time to go!

Easter 2018 vacation to remember

We were not sure what to expect so close to the passing of Irmaria (the two hurricanes that devastated the island in Sept 2017) but we were amazed at how nice the island is recovering, and especially how nice Dancing Dolphins has recovered. We have stayed on St John a number of times in different places (Cruz Bay, Bordeux Mtn, Coral Bay) but the location of Dancing Dolphins is our favorite. The Upper Carolina region above Coral bay has great views, and the paved roads are a major plus in my book. The location of Dancing Dolphins is awesome to have as home base, minutes from north shore beaches (Francis, Maho, and others) as well as minutes to Salt Pond or Hansen. We visited all during our stay. Dancing Dolphins made the most amazing home base on St John. Plenty of room for my wife and I, our two daughters 15 and 10, and my parents that were along for their 50 wedding anniversary. The upper floor has the perfect layout, with kitchen, living area, dining area, office and master suite, all on one level. Every room has incredible views of Coral bay and beyond. Steps outside the dining area is the pool area where we spent most mornings drinking coffee, and watching the sun come up over the boats in Coral Bay. The pool was very inviting and my daughters loved cooling off after a day soaking up the hot sun on the beach. We also found the shaded gazebo by the pool to be an afternoon and morning favorite. The overhead fans provided enough breeze to be comfortable during the hot day, and kept the bugs away even at night. The lower level of Dancing Dolphins has the other three bed rooms, a sitting area, with work out machine (which we didnt use) and another amazing bathroom. The showers had enough windows to make you feel like they were outside, and most nights we showered by moonlight. The stone work in the baths and rest of the house was truly a work of art. The views from all level of the house were simple amazing. The only thing better than the views are the property owners and caretakers. They truly made us feel welcome, and were full of interesting local knowledge. They went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We look forward to returning to Dancing Dolphins as soon as possible for our next trip to St John. - The Albrechts

Go to St. John and go to paradise ☺

We are a happy family of 5 traveling with my in-laws. We would highly recommend having your vacation on St. John in the Dolphin House. Everything worked really well and the house was super clean upon arrival (remember that this was the first visitors in the house after the hurricanes). We were really happy that everything was ready and they must have been so busy. The on site manager was the perfect host and helped us settle in and keeping up whether everything worked as it should, and still kept privat. Our children loved the pool and it was surrounded by a nice pool area with covered patio for shade and sun beds where you could enjoy the stunning view. The house was spacious and the rooms were lovely. There was room for everybody. We made our meals ourselves and the kitchen was perfectly equipped. The house had snorkels and fins, and we went snorkeling on the beautiful beaches of St. John. It was so exciting and we saw rays and turtles.

Overall we had a awesome time and can’t wait to stay here again.

The villa was perfect. Every morning we woke to an amazing view. The beds where so comfy. The kitchen was so nice and useful if you plan on cooking there was everything u needed right in the kitchen. The pool area was so nice to have as an extra hang out area. I love the lay out of the villa making it privacy not an issue. There was nothing we didn’t like. We enjoyed ourselves so much.
