Coral Bay is a small unspoiled village on the eastern end of St. John. It borders the Virgin Islands National Park. There are five restaurants within a ten minute drive from the house including the well-known Skinny Legs Bar, Indigo Grill, Oasis, Pickles, and Aqua Bistro. Many pristine north shore beaches, including Maho, Trunk and Cinnamon are 10 minutes away. Cruz Bay, a hub of activity where the ferry from St. Thomas is located, is 30 minutes from Coral Bay.
There are many wonderful homes and cottages for rent on St. John. We designed our home to include the best features from all of our rental and camping experiences over the years including upscale villas, Maho Bay Campground, Cinnamon Bay and Concordia Eco-retreat. Skyloft features affordability, privacy, outdoor living and cooking, screened-in sleeping, two spectacular outdoor showers, a small private pool, unbeatable views and a shaded, undeveloped, sitting area at the edge of a mature tropical forest.
MEET THE OWNERS
We have vacationed on the island of St. John for over 25 consecutive years. We started as campers at the Cinnamon Bay Campground, graduated to a decade of bareboat chartering in the USVI and BVI, and then began renting vacation homes in Coral Bay. At first, we visited once a year, then twice a year, then on occasion, three times a year. It was pretty clear that we liked St. John and Coral Bay.
We purchased the property in 2002, finalized building plans in 2013, began construction in 2014 and completed the project in January of 2015. Coralina Skyloft, named for its small footprint and spectacular VIP view of all the 'action' in Coral Bay, is our vision of simple, upscale, relaxing, tropical living. We are happy to share Skyloft with you. Welcome!

What our guests are saying
Skyloft was spotlessly clean when we arrived, the kitchen was easy to use, the bed was comfortable. In the tropics in late July and we never turned the AC on once, the breezes and ceiling fan were perfect. Plus, the owners supplied snorkeling gear, beach chairs, beach towels and coolers for use. This was our 20th wedding anniversary trip, and I can say without qualification that this was the best trip we've ever taken. We definitely plan to come back to St. John and, when we do, we'll be staying at Skyloft ... Is it possible to give a place more than 5 stars?JEFF -Aug 2016
Skyloft is an amazing property! My husband and I had never been to St. John and debated whether we wanted to stay in Cruz Bay or Coral Bay. Coral Bay was definitely the place for us! We loved the tranquility of that side of the island and waking up to the sounds of roosters and donkeys. The view was impeccable. The villa was thoughtfully planned out with all necessities provided. We thoroughly enjoyed driving to the beaches (north, east, and south shore were super convenient) during the day and returning to the cool refreshing pool in the evening ... Definitely get a jeep to make the at first daunting but quickly comfortable bumpy drive up the hill!KELLY -July 2016
The property was beautiful. The listing pictures truly did not do justice to the view. I'm generally not one to want to sit 'at home' on vacation, but the view from the main deck was enough to keep us there some evenings. Skyloft is well-appointed and very well thought out. It's clean and well-maintained, very easy to feel at home there for a week. It's everything you need for a couple, especially if you're spending most of your day enjoying the island anyway.KEITH -July 2016
Can't say enough about this fabulous property. Was beyond my expectations. The set up of the 2 buildings with the covered outside dining/living area made it seem we were living outside. Sun, stars, birds, wind and a view to die for. We spent almost all our time here, why go anywhere else and miss the chance to completely relax?NANCY -March 2016
