Caribbean Jewels exceeded our expectations in size and decor. We had based our choice on the proximity to the North Shore Beaches, the gorgeous Coral Bay view, and having the master on the main floor with an open layout.
The villa is lovely and furnished with very good towels and linens, a very comfortable king bed downstairs, plenty of dishes, big, thick beach towels and new, light beach chairs. The Destination St John website photos are very accurate, and the folks there are great to work with. The grill is different but works well. The living area and deck furniture is new and very comfortable. The pool area stayed sunny until around three and the the water was refreshingly cool, but approachable. We don't watch much TV but did enjoy the Sirius Radio. Although we found we didn't need it at night or most other times, the air conditioning in the master suite worked well. Six ceiling fans and many open windows kept the great room comfortable. The view is exceptionally beautiful!
The narrow road was not a joy, but it was not a surprise, and the rough unpaved section is short. I must say that turning onto Callaloo Rd is something like diving off the edge of the earth and not knowing if the net is there!
There had been rumors about complaining neighbors, but we did not see nor hear from them. Our daily pool time was usually between two and four; we did not play music there, and our voices were kept at a normal conversational level.
There is also one house just below Caribbean Jewels but we only heard an occasional car passing by and the faint sound of children in the pool. The landscape provides well for visual privacy.
Yes! We just may go back!
