About this cottage

New Moon is a charming one bedroom house for rent in Coral Bay, on the island of St. John. Surrounded by trees, with beautiful views of Coral Bay and Bordeaux Mountain, New Moon provides the perfect couples’ getaway. New Moon offers a spacious kitchen, beautifully appointed with hardwood mahogany cabinets and bar. This intimate residence will make you feel right at home as you enjoy all St. John has to offer. New Moon provides the perfect base from which to explore the white sand beaches of St. John and the unspoiled beauty of the Virgin Islands National Park. Located 10-15 minutes from beaches and trails on either the North or South shore of St. John, swimming, snorkeling and hiking opportunities abound. A variety of restaurants, shops and bars are less than ½ mile away in Coral Bay, and the bustling nightlife and shopping of downtown Cruz Bay can be reached via a scenic 25 minute drive.

New Moon sleeps just two people, but can be rented in conjunction with Just Enough (see VRBO listing 51729) for parties of up to four people. Both New Moon and Just Enough were custom built by their owner with the protection of the environment in mind. While separated by lush foliage, the houses are on the same property, connected by a short trail. This design allows for family or friends to have separate space and privacy, but the proximity to enjoy a vacation together. Each two-story house includes a bedroom and bathroom upstairs, living space and a fully equipped kitchen downstairs, and wrap-around decks on both floors from which to enjoy the views and stargazing.

    Belated Honeymoon!

    Perfect for just the two of us, but truly, if you have mobility issues this isn’t the place for you just due to all the stairs. I was 5 was post knee surgery and stairs were on my list on PT activities so that worked out well for me.😁 Best stocked kitchen I’ve ever seen with a VRBO place with utensils, pots, pans, dishes, etc. The Manager Jill was super helpful and gave great recommendations of restaurants, and available/responsive to questions.

    A Great Getaway Spot!

    The cottage is a fantastic spot for a couple looking to get away from everything. You get to wake up to birds singing, drink coffee in a nice kitchen, go to the beach (or maybe a hike!) a short drive away. Jill will even lend you some beach chairs. You can also relax on the stretchers/hammock in the varanda and have a meal outside overlooking coral bay. The bedroom and bathroom are large and comfortable. You get out of there feeling well-rested and reset. My spouse and I loved the week we spent there and will definitely consider contacting Jill again if we visit the island soon.

    Want to go back!

    We stayed here in Feb 2019 and loved the view! Having a well equipped kitchen was excellent and included more than just the basics, such as the cooler and ice packs you could bring to the beach. It's private from all the surrounding trees but you can still hear the neighbors around you. The cottage was very clean and we would definitely stay here again!

    Honeymoon in Paradise

    Our first impressions of new moon was amazing The View was spectacular we felt at home the moment we arrived. The greetings by the wildlife was nice, the Sounds were all soothing, the breeze was comforting and it was very peaceful, seeing the mountains was like no other place we've ever seen, it was an amazing way to start off our marriage and we look forward to coming back. Thank you so much Ms Jill for all your help with preparing the cabin. We couldn't have found a better place for our first time in virgin islands.

    Beautiful unit with awesome view

    Property is very nice with very functional kitchen and interesting shower in the upstairs. View are awesome as are the sounds of nature at night. You have to go up and down a few stairs to the car but the view is worth the walk.

    Beautiful tree house

    My friend and I had a great time at New Moon. Highly recommend renting a solid jeep for both the drive over to Coral Bay as well as the steep drive up to the property. Really clean and all the necessary kitchen amenities. Good little super market down the hill from the cottage where you can stock up and cook on certain nights. For eating out, it was a little tricky this time of year to get reservations with the holiday in Coral Bay and Cruz Bay. Coral Bay restaurants would run out of food pretty early (by even 6:30) so we would have to try multiple places and then still sometimes just resort to cooking. A bit easier in Cruz Bay but at the holiday time restaurants still fill up fast. Beautiful beaches all around and we had fun adventuring to different ones each day. Highly recommend and would visit again!

    Private and wonderful!

    My husband and I loved staying at New Moon. This was our third time on the island and the only time we had a consistent hot shower! The house was perfectly equipped- nothing fancy, but relaxing and everything we needed nonetheless. My favorite thing was having coffee on the patio in the mornings and the cool breeze while we slept. This was the perfect spot to isolate while soaking in the perfect beaches on St. John. We’d love to return one day soon. Thanks for a great stay!
