  • The photos don't do this house justice--the view when you walk in is just drop dead…

  • Best of both worlds - a great view over the bay combined with quick access to a beach…

    R&R? Unplug Here and You'll Want to Stay Forever

    This is an absolutely magical place filed with rainbows, gorgeous vistas, beach proximity and PRIVACY. Coral Bay is a hop skip & a jump and the shops/restaurants are all open and happy to see you. Extremely well equipped for cooking, etc. We wanted for nothing. The quasi-private beach provided great snorkeling and sunning. Shared the beach with one other couple...all week. Awesome! I love airplane views, but being 75 steps from this beach wins! We will be back!!

    Cameron Cove will make your heart happy

    My husband, children (9 & 12), and I spent 6 days at Cameron Cove. STJ is just what we needed after a COVID winter on the east coast. We arrived after sunset & were greeted with an awesome view of boats in the bay all lit up. When we woke up the next morning, we couldn’t believe the view. It’s stunning. Our favorite part of every day was enjoying breakfast on the deck, watching the boats, and also the wild donkeys and goats frolicking on the shoreline and the properties below. The house faces west, making the sunsets over the hills of Coral Bay the second favorite part of our days. The house is tucked in the East End of the island at the very end to Rt. 10. It is a little bit of a hike. You will 100% need a 4WD vehicle, and I highly recommend a Jeep Wrangler if you can . That said, the drive is worth it. That end of the island is really a gem. The shoreline is accessible via a path from the side of the house. Its steep and a little overgrown. I recommend wearing water shoes if you use it. The shoreline is beautiful and made up of rocks and coral which are very fun to climb and to snorkel from. Many snorkel charters anchor out to snorkel Pelican Rock, which you can easily swim to from the shoreline (just beware of the urchin). If you want sandy beach, Hansen Bay Beach is 3-minutes drive. For a donation, you can enjoy the beach and all of their toys, including paddle boards and kayaks. It was a perfect place for our family - very relaxed and fun and no need for spending lots of money on renting those items. It’s a special place and just as nice as the other hot spots on STJ. We visited in April and the weather was perfect. No need to use the air conditioning. The fans and open sliders kept us comfortable. Thalia, the housekeeper, was very helpful and kind, and always very responsive. We didn’t need to call her much, but she picked up immediately when we did. The house is 100% what you expect of a beach rental in this price range and in this location. It is remote island living, so you need to adjust your expectations. It could use some updating, but it's clean, safe and comfortable. Overall, we loved staying here and would go back! Some advice: - Book a late afternoon/evening return flight, or plan to stay on STT the night before. - Stop at CostULess on STT for water &food, and Starfish Market in Cruz Bay for groceries before coming out to the east end. - Highly recommend pre-booking ferry with LoveCity Ferries in advance of your trip.

    Little slice of heaven

    Great location, very peaceful, beautiful view from the deck. House layout was great for our family, kids used one room with the wife and I in the other and the common room in between. Deck ran the length of the house. We ate in most nights on the deck watching the sun set over the bay and mountains. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking equipment to create any type of meal. We made great use of the blender in the evenings. We snorkeled all over St John's but found the best snorkeling at Cameron Cove's own beach. Two awesome reefs, Pelican rock and one to the south. We saw turtles, rays, lobster, conch and numerous fish. Highly recommend for anyone looking to enjoy St Johns.

    Great spot on the East End

    Beautiful and quiet spot on the East end with an easy walk to the beach and good snorkeling right there.

    Relaxing stay at Cameron Cove

    The location of the property was great for isolation and relaxation and the views were amazing! The access to the private beach was great and we snorkeled and paddle boarded right off the beach several days. We saw a sting ray, a turtle and lots of colorful fish. As other reviews had mentioned, the beach was rocky but there is a small spot of sand to put some beach chairs down so it was not bad. We did go to the North shore beaches: Maho, Cinnamon Bay and Trunk Bay which were beautiful soft sand beaches about 25 minutes away but they were definitely more crowded so you need to go early to get a parking spot. The view off the back deck of the house was amazing and the nightly sunsets were beautiful! There were board games provided and we played Yahtzee every night as a family. It was lots of fun! The only cons for the house were that the water pressure was pretty bad. The shower was a trickle and it made washing dishes a longer chore. There was no bath soap or other toiletries provided so we had to run to the store to grab a bar of soap on the first day. Also the path to the private beach was pretty overgrown. As another review mentioned, the outdoor shower area could use some clean up but it still worked for getting sand off shoes etc. We ended up using the outdoor hose by the front door as it was easier to rinse snorkel items off with using that. But other than those items, the house was great and we would stay here again!

    Peaceful, Quiet, Great Views

    The cottage overlooks the inlet that flows into Coral Bay from a location far out on the east end road and has stunning views- turquoise water, boats coming and going, magnificent sunsets, and star filled nights. The setting is tranquil and close enough to the water that you hear the waves lapping against the shore. Linda is very responsive and helpful and Thalia, who oversees the property locally, also stopped by to make sure everything was fine. We were looking for week of relaxation and Cameron Cove delivered.

    Christmas week at Cameron Cove

    This was our fourth visit to the island and the first time staying at a house with beach access. The beach is rocky, so no spreading out on a sand, but it is one of the best snorkeling spots on the island. The house is well equipped with a huge balcony overlooking the bay. I gave it four stars because there most of the beach chairs were broken and we got replacements only the day before our departure. Also, there were a couple of things which could use some clean up - the outdoor shower being one of them. Another great improvement would be a few chairs on the beach. Other houses with beach access seemed to have those as well as kayaks. But, as I said, the house itself is fine and the location amazing

    Nice, but be careful

    Be careful with this place. It is really far away from everything and driving is challenging in St. John. The nice sand beaches are 25 to 40 minutes from this location. There were several broken items when we were there, dishwasher, closet doors, etc. Unless you really want to be away from everything and I mean really far away, you might want to pick another place. Additionally we were not warned / informed of any of the broken items and non appeared to be scheduled to be fixed while we were there. We won't be going back there.

    One of the best locations on the island

    We spent a fabulous week at Cameron Cove. The cottage has a great floor plan, with both bedrooms having their own bathroom and access to the deck and sea view. The huge partially roofed deck is a great feature and we spent most of our time out there, just taking in the view and watching boats go by and looking for turtles in the bay. The bay has it's own young reef which was teaming with life. Pelican rocks are a short swim away, as is Hansen Bay. 2 minute walk to your own little beach, which is virtually private. Great snorkeling. Wish we could have stayed longer - would book this house again without any hesitation.
