Located in Coral Bay, Winter Moon is easy to find and easy to get to. We spent 13 days there and loved every single minute. The apartment is the bottom floor of a private residence and is just beautiful; large, airy, and comfortable. Everywhere you look you can see the love and care that the owners have put into making Winter Moon special. Lots of windows and fans kept the apartment very comfortable and refreshing; we never even thought of turning on the A/C. Nights were quite comfortable and we slept better than we have in years.
The view must be one of the most spectacular on St John. Whether watching a beautiful sunrise over Hurricane Hole or marveling at an incoming thunderstorm, we were always enthralled. Many mornings we would get so lost in the view and the wildlife that we would forget our plans to go to the beach and end up getting a late start. For the first time I understood villa gravity and would have been perfectly happy spending the entire day at the apartment reading, relaxing, and enjoying the scenery.
Winter Moon is located in a very quiet and private area and we always felt totally safe and secure. The owners, Roy and Peggy, are friendly and accommodating hosts with lots of great stories and information about St John. They are there when you need them but never intrusive – a real art.
We found it very nice that the driveway to the house was not an obstacle course and that there is only one step up into the apartment which is all on one floor. We are not old nor are we out of shape; still, one floor makes everything easier and safer when in strange surroundings.
This was our 6th trip to St John and we felt it was our best vacation ever. I know that Winter Moon was a big reason why the trip was so special and can recommend it without any reservations. It is also a terrific deal. I just hope that Roy and Peggy can fit us in next year once everyone finds out about this great place.
