This gorgeous villa sits high up on Seagrape Hill in Coral Bay. The location was perfect for us, who love visiting the East End beaches and the southeast beaches. North Shore beaches, especially Maho and Franicis, are also a short drive.
The road to the villa has some interesting switchbacks along the way, and the driveway is a little steep but manageable. We got used to them soon enough.
The amenities this villa offers are all first class - from cooking utensils and pots & pans to a separate icemaker (in addition to the one in the freezer). All the furnishings and the decor are unique and very well selected. We got the impression that the owners have put immense love and care into their island home, and we appreciated all the details all around this beautiful home.
We found the pool to be pretty warm - warm enough even for me to enjoy it at night under the starry sky. Night dips are almost always a little too cold for me to try but some nights I stayed in the pool at Reef Madness for over an hour, which was very unusual. I enjoyed it every second of it.
The view of Coral Bay below and Bordeaux Mountain are so serene. We loved watching Coral Bay waking up in the morning, brightly lit in the afternoon sun, sprinkled with raindrops, easing into twilight, and quietly twinkling at night.
We loved our time at Reef Madness so much that we are returning to stay there next year.
Needless to say, I definitely recommend this wonderfully unique home on the beautiful island of St. John.
