    A TRUE GEM!!!

    We can’t even find the right words to describe how spectacular this place is. If you want to experience the nature in its purest form on St. John there is no better location than this one. There are tons of beaches around and within walking distance you can enjoy a nice day at Salt Pond (amazing sandy beach with very few people). I can’t thank Liz and Russ enough for being the best hosts that I’ve ever met. They gave us great recommendations on local food and snorkeling and were very respectful of our privacy. We will be most definitely coming back! Vladimir & Yulia

    Perfect stay

    We had a great time and it was perfect for just two people. No door on the bathroom was a little different, but we didnt mind. It was clean and had everything we needed.

    Charming and peaceful

    We truly enjoyed our stay in the little cottage. Liz was a lovely lady and hostess. We felt quite at home. Liz thinks of lots of little details that help make your stay more convenient. The cottage was spotless. We would recommend to anyone who loves nature and more authentic experience. Hope to return.

    The perfect place for us to enjoy our time on St John

    This was a perfect place for us to stay. We found the accomodations to be exactly as described - clean, comfortable, well furnished etc. We can't wait to go back.

    Peaceful and relaxing cottage

    We just got done staying in the cottage, and it was wonderful. Everything you could possible need for a relaxing week at the beach was provided and was easy to find. The design was bright and cheery with shelves full of books and tropical decorations. It was the perfect size for two people, and very private, with a secluded porch on the one side that overlooked the salt pond and the green mountainsides. We spent many hours there reading and relaxing in the lounge chairs. Sleeping was perfect! The bed was comfy, and a warm dry breeze would blow through the room all night keeping it the perfect temperature. In the morning the sun would light up the bright, cheery room and you couldn't help but wake up with a smile on your face. Secluded beaches and hiking are very close ( jeep is a must ) and the beaches are still beautiful, even though the snorkeling will take a few years to recover after the storms. Restaurants and groceries are a quick drive away. Our favorites were Wok on the Beach, and Miss Lucy's along with Pizza in Paradise. Liz was quick and detailed in all her communications, and we will definitely be coming back back here several time a year.

    Perfect getaway

    First time to St John and Lameshur Cottages. Loved every minute of our stay. We were in the studio cottage. The space is bright and cheery and perfect for two people. The cottages are off the beaten path, which is exactly what we wanted. If you prefer to be within walking distance of restaurants or nightlife action, you should look elsewhere. If you enjoy peace and quiet and green mountain views, close to several stunning bays with excellent snorkeling, look no further. Communication was a breeze. Can’t think of a single thing that would have improved our stay (except maybe a little less rain and fewer bug bites).

    We loved our stay in the 2-person cottage. So quiet, but movies and music too. Great view of the National Park’s eastward mountains. Most of the best snorkeling sites are very nearby. Liz was so attentive and helpful. High recommendations!

    What a life! The American Caribbean Paradise!

    Disclaimer: It is out of respect for the establishment we share this information, we’d rather not for fear of everyone finding out about it and ruining it, taking all the space, or changing it in any way! SAVE CORAL BAY! What a life! We always knew there was a special island for us – with a private cottage in the American Paradise. Our simply appointed Caribbean love shack was the perfect escape from the ferry tourists and bourgeois of Cruz Bay. Bright & loveable, we had basic accoutrements we needed for cooking (groceries are expensive, new cookware would be nice) and relaxing after epic beach days on our sublime valley veranda. Perched upon cliff’s edge, the cottage radiated charm & comfort, with picturesque Caribbean shutters and cotton curtains drifting in the gentle winds. The cottage is intimate & romantic, but the highfalutin may not appreciate its coziness (i.e. no bathroom door to close, only a curtain – petite shower stall, no curtain). A small dining table nestled between rooms served as a good setting for morning breakfasts basking in the sunrise (I diverge to mention one must get up and hit the road early to secure ample parking and shade if Caribbean fantasy beach dreams are to be fulfilled). The couch/bed was comfy (slightly awkward centered in the room but adequate and understandable given some rain), island breezes constant, and stars: Spectacular! There were no bugs, and after we returned home, we laughed about water conservation (drinking water is a luxury – buy a case of bottled water at Starfish Market in Cruz Bay), toilet sensitivity (NO PAPER IN THE TOILET!), and food receptacles (leave no food out!). The phones were off, television or internet went unused - it was heavenly, and then we took a little footpath to a beach like no other - anywhere. Garbage must be disposed of down the road, and most surrounding structures were destroyed. Regardless, our retreat was at the far end of our Virgin Pirate Paradise - we loved & treasured it. The daily drives to all the beaches weren’t long and the views: Breathtaking! After settling in, we realized we were particularly lucky to be staying there, the price was right and the homespun atmosphere idyllic. Russ and Liz were fabulous to work with, and the Coral Bay side of the island is far superior, if you’re looking for relaxed, unpretentious, and colorful, approachable characters. There are no words for how truly special this place is, a plucked dusky jewel! Just Go!

    Perfect Cottage for This Couple

    My husband and I stayed in the Studio at Lameshur Cottages for one week in early May. What a find! We need look no further for the perfect place for us on St. John. The cottage was impeccably clean, the bed comfortable. Linens and towels, including beach towels, of good quality and sufficient quantity for our stay. We prepared most of our meals at the cottage. Kitchen appliances, utensils, cookware, and dishes met or exceeded our needs. Plenty of books for recreational reading as well as field guides, island guidebooks, maps, you name it! Now for the good part: location, location, location! The cottages (there is also a two-bedroom) are perched high on a hillside at the end of the paved road beyond the town of Coral Bay between Salt Pond Bay and Lameshur Bays, both good snorkeling sites. At the end of the paved road, the cottages are private and quiet with very little traffic. We are avid birders and enjoyed bird watching from the large covered deck. Up close we had bananaquits, bull thrushes, hummingbirds, and other small birds while the nearby pond provided plenty of egrets and frigate birds. The owner was quick to respond to our questions both before and during our stay. She provided us with easy to follow directions for reaching the cottage as well as detailed information regarding local shopping, grocery, and restaurants. We look forward to returning to St. John and staying at Lameshur Cottages.
