After twelve visits to the island we decided on Moonglow Cottage for our first Christmas time visit. We have rented many homes mostly in Coral Bay some have been repeat visits. We have rented larger homes when traveling with others. For this visit we were looking for a peaceful, private place with a view for two. What a view Moonglow Cottage has. We have stayed right above Moonglow and remember how amazing this Calabash area is. What sets this quaint cottage apart from all of the other beautiful places we have stayed on the island besides the view is the privacy it offers. The owners have created a well-designed and decorated space with ample room for two. We felt very "at home" from the moment we arrived. They thought of everything you could need or want during your stay. We enjoyed the hot tub, the outdoor garden, grill and patio area, the outdoor shower with a view! Seemed like no matter where you were there was an amazing view. We experienced many beautiful sunrises and moonglows at night all photographed both on our cameras and in our hearts forever. This was a very memorable Christmas for us. We look forward to returning to Moonglow Cottage. As they say, "Soon come"...- Tara Perrotti
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 kitchen we had everything we needed (even a milk frother!) and the towels were the softest ever (after coming back from the trip I had to go to Pottery barn to get some for our house).
We highly recommend you to choose this place if you want to get away and relax. We were close to some of the most beautiful beaches on the island and the wonderful part about Coral bay is that it is not so crowded!
Can`t wait to return!!!!! Thank you!!!!- Cristina K.
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!- Tia R.
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!- Doug and Diane P.
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 for the crazy night life of Cruz Bay. Been there. Done that. We want to sit at the beach and listen to the waves lapping on the shore and watch the deer and the pelicans and the iguanas and the birds. We want to snorkel with the turtles and the squid and the rays and the coral and watch the sunset. Stop at Coral Bay for a leisurely supper in our damp swimsuits and fill up on some yummy tropical delights before heading back to stargaze on the deck! This home smacks of the Caribbean in its simplicity and comfort and cooling breezes. You may have a visitor or two in the drive or the shower...lizards or frogs or deer... and get
lulled asleep by the tree frogs. Moon Glow is a little bit of heaven on earth! We will return again and again as long as we are able. Thank you, Mary Lou and Larry for allowing us to share your bounty!- Barbara J.
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 manager lives near by if you have questions. The snorkeling post hurricanes was much better than anticipated. The beaches are amazing. I highly recommend this home!- Jody M.
