We've been coming to the Rock for 24 years and sadly, we never 'stayed' in Coral Bay and now I don't ever see me going back to the other side! Sweet Wind Villa is a pure little Gem! We felt like Peter Pan & Wendy in Neverland! There is such a wonderful spirit about this place and the view, there is no other view!! The pictures do not do it justice! We made sure to be 'home' for the viewing - Moon & Stars - every evening. This was the perfect Happy Hour! We even saw a Whale go by - we had never seen one in STJ before and it was magical! Our bedroom was super comfy and we could view the stars while lying in our bed. The outdoor shower was just fantastic after our runs on the nearby trails. I love to cook and it was obvious Nina is a cook herself - the kitchen was incredibly well stocked! We felt so grateful to be able to stay at such special place ~ we are so hoping to get back soon! We wish we could keep this place a secret - Thank you so much Nina!

The best part of having a rental villa is meeting folks and seeing them enjoy the place . I love watching their reactions when they first step out of the jeep and the view captures them.

“Awesome!”

If you are looking for the most amazing view on the island, This. Is. It. The villa had a deck that juts out over a cliff and gives you views of Hurricane Hole for amazing sunrises and sunsets. Is on the other side of the island from Cruz Bay, But who needs touristy hustle and bustle! The restraunts on this end of the island are amazing and the hiking is even better. Nina, the owner is so kind and sweet and wnnts to make your stay super enjoyable. The house was built by her and she has amazing artistic touches throughout, not to mention an upgraded kitchen which I LOVED. This is my second stay here and I would never stay anywhere else now!

“Can't wait to go back”

We just returned from a week at Sweet Wind. It was fantastic. The Villa is beautifully decorated and perfectly laid out for traveling with our two teenage boys. We loved the quiet and tranquility. Nina was very respectful of our privacy but we had a wonderful time listening to stories about her very interesting life. She was a great source of insider tips on restaurants, snorkeling spots, beaches, and out of the way places to visit. Our days ended on the deck admiring the stars and gorgeous view of Hurricane Hole. Can't wait to go back!

If you go, try a burger at Skinny Legs and seafood at Aqua Bistro. As is typical on the island, the driveway is steep. Four wheel drive is helpful for negotiating the driveway, the car ferry, and the rest of the island.

We researched a number of villas in Coral Bay and decided on Sweet Winds. The villa is 4/10 of a mile out of town and was exactly what we had hoped for. There is a nautical theme throughout. Nina the owner couldn't have been more helpful or pleasant. A car is needed and it needs to be 4 wheel drive. The driveway is short but very steep.
The view is second to none, and there are wonderful sunrises as the deck faces East. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to go back if health issues allow.

We found Sweet Wind to be just as advertised. It is beautiful, eccentric and funky. Chilling is easy. Cooked a lot, hung out, went adventuring every day. Well equipped yet everything does not work perfectly. Interesting details in the architecture and decoration that make it a comfortable and aesthetic experience. What a view! We would definitely go back when possible.

This was our second trip to Sweet Wind Villa. We had such a lovely time in 2012 that we didn't think twice to book with Nina's lovely home again.
We have two children, 2 and 4.5, and Nina made us all feel welcome and comfortable, providing a pack and play and booster seat. She took a list of staples that we would need and stocked the fridge for us with milk, eggs, bread, etc... So that we wouldn't have to go shopping our first night. (There are two convenient stores located right in coral bay.) We ate out about half the nights of our stay and cooked in the rest. We packed picnic lunches for the beaches.
This time we traveled with another family and their 2 year old. The house is perfectly set up for two groups - one bedroom is set on one side of the house, while the other two are on the opposite side - perfect to give each family their own privacy. The kids loved showering together in the outdoor shower after a sandy day at the beach, and running around the fully enclosed decks that circle the house.
We look forward to returning again next year!
The views of Hurricane Hole are so beautiful, and both years we saw double rainbows off the balcony after a late afternoon rainstorm. Nina clearly loves the home, as shown in the careful details throughout.
The restaurants in coral bay, just a short drive away, were great. Skinny Legs and Donkey Diner are particularly family friendly.
