Newly constructed in 2014, Moonglow Cottage is an octagonal home with spectacular views of Coral Bay and the islands beyond. Vistas abound from every part of this spacious Caribbean home... there are gentle breezes and an ocean view from every room! The screened outdoor dining veranda is only steps away from a well-appointed gourmet kitchen with owner-created ceramic tiles complementing the stainless steel and granite. An air conditioned bedroom with a king size four-poster bed awaits after a late evening soak in our round intimate spa. The moon and the twinkling lights of the British Virgins are your only distraction!

Our week at the Moonglow cottage was a dream. It was so relaxing and very easy to forget about all our daily worries. The view is breathtaking, every night the sky took different colors and after dark, the moon would brighten up the dark ocean.
The cottage was sparkly clean, in the kitc
We loved our relaxing stay at Moonglow. It was very clean and comfortable. The home owner along with the care taker were very helpful. We would defiantly stay here again!
Such a comfy and well stocked home. Wouldn’t change a thing! Mary Lou is such a thoughtful owner and Bob McNabb is available on island if you need anything. We always enjoy Moonglow and Coral Bay and will be back soon!

Stepping onto St. John USVI is like traveling in a time capsule back to when life was simpler and folks appreciated the small joys that life brings you: the beauty of nature, of the creatures that inhabit the world other than the humanoids. Moon Glow is the most serene setting. We don’t care fo
Wonderful home for a couple, beautifully furnished, great king bedroom, fantastic high views which included Tortola and a hot tub! The road up to the house is rough but has room for cars to pass each other which is a plus for this location. The owners are terrific to deal with and the house manag
The Virgin Islands National Park is St John's largest and most popular attraction. It covers 3/5 of St John's landmass and includes 12,624 land and marine acres that encompass pristine beaches, coral reefs, hiking trails, wild donkeys and 800 types of plants. There are also ancient artifacts from the pre-Columbian settlers and remnants of colonial sugar plantations. Twenty-two hiking trails cover more than 20 miles; the park visitor's center has maps. Guided walks are open to the public - ask at the visitor center for details.
This lovely little town, known locally as "Love City," is the heart of St John. The streets are lined with shops, restaurants, and bars, which are all within easy walking distance of each other. You can easily spend an afternoon lazily wandering around soaking in the mellow, laid-back vibe and charm of the town, then spend the evening noshing in one of the numerous restaurants. After dinner, head to one of the beachside bars at Wharfside Village and down a brew or two with your bare feet in the sand.
Salt Pond Bay is one of the top snorkeling destinations on St John; and while there are certainly lots of fans of this location – I think there are other STJ destinations that trump Salt Pond for snorkeling. That said, you should definitely make the trek. Some of the best sights are a rock hump that's off the center of the bay. While the sea grass beds offer a great opportunity to see a sea turtle, ray or giant hermit crabs ( usually in a large Queen Conch shell)!
