Testimonials for Pelican Beach - Friis Bay

Relaxation Found at Pelican Beach

My husband and I just returned from a week in this beautiful home.  The house location is perfect and convenient to anything you may need.  We fell asleep to the sound of the waves every night and enjoyed the gentle ocean breezes that keep you more than comfortable.  The open air floor-plan is well suited to the area - AC not needed!  Coral Bay is the simpler more peaceful side of the island that offers a tranquil getaway from the congestion of Cruz Bay.

Although just upstairs, owners Nancy and Jason have made every effort to create a private experience for their guests.  We never felt their presence, yet were pleased to know they were only a phone call away with helpful information regarding running spots, restaurants etc.  We recommend hiring Jason for a day of snorkeling.  He is an excellent boat captain with a wealth of knowledge.

Don’t worry if you’ve forgotten something – most likely they’ve thought of it for you with a well-stocked vanity of toiletries, fridge with cold drinks and condiments and a counter full of various types of sunscreen and bug spray. We did most of our cooking at the house and found everything we needed.  Even food wrap and storage containers for the leftovers!  Coolers for picnic outings and day trips…they’ve thought of everything!  We have rented many houses over the years and the Pelican Beach house was the most well-equipped home we’ve stayed in.  It felt like a family member had prepped it for us with care.

Peace, serenity, rustling palms, the ebb and flow of the sea – St. John at its very best.  In the 30 years I’ve been coming to St. John I’ve never found a location so close to the water and with such easy access to its own sandy beach! I’ve spent hours sitting on the waterside deck under the shade of the seagrapes just reading, painting and/or sipping adult beverages.  Pelican Beach is convenient to the best that Coral Bay has to offer – Sunday jazz brunch at Miss Lucy’s, yoga at Concordia, lobster rolls at Larry’s Tourist Trap and the best burgers in the world at Skinny Legs! Be sure to ask the homeowner to make you a painkiller. I guarantee you won’t be feeling any pain!

Pelican Beach is heaven on earth – breathtaking views, the bluest of ocean blues, outrageous snorkeling right out your door, a beautiful living space with all the amenities, and the BEST innkeepers!

I dream of this place! Such breathtaking views and soothing sights, sounds, and smells of the island. A true paradise! The snorkeling is awesome, right off the beach! Close to all Coral Bay has to offer: great food! Wonderful hiking and natural beauty all around. Can’t beat the hospitality of the owners. I plan for Pelican Beach to be my tranquil yearly (or more often if possible) escape.
