The cottage is on the quiet side of the island which is why we chose this place. Coral Bay is close by and has a good selection of restaurants and grocery shopping. Salt Pond Bay, which has pretty good snorkeling and an excellent hiking trail, is within walking distance if you're not bringing a lot stuff with you. The cottage itself was clean and comfortable for our needs, including my tween son. We cooked in a lot and had all the utensils, pots, etc. needed to make meals. There is an impressive collection of books to read from fiction selections to helpful info books about the island. Liz is an excellent communicator and always answered any of my questions within an hour. I really appreciated her flexibility and concern in making sure we were comfortable.

Lameshur Cottage is exactly what we expected. It's located on the quieter side of the island. The property shows all the time and love Liz and Russ put into the place. The openness of the main house was refreshing and my husband and I felt connected even when in different rooms. The open shower was our favorite. Loved that it felt like showering outdoors, but inside. Liz is fantastic about communications during the booking, before you arrive, and during your stay. Please make sure to print the directions Liz will send you before you go to the island. I'm so use to doing everything on my phone, and ended up not having service but on a couple places on the island. So, I rang Liz after we picked up our rental jeep, and she was very helpful giving us directions. She even sent a follow up text asking if we made it. The cottage was super clean. When we arrived and walked in the door, it smelled like freshly laundered linens and island breeze. We spent every day exploring the island and going to as many bays as we could, so coming home to the cottage and relaxing on the deck or in the hot tub was such a lovely way to end the day. The cottage is stocked with a great variety of books and music. You can't help but relax and enjoy while staying at Lameshur Cottages...just bring plenty of bug spray with you...that's also part of island life... :) Thanks Liz!

Spent a wonderful week at Lameshur Cottage. Cottage was perfect for our group of 4. We started each day with coffee on the screened in deck and ended the days in the hot tub with lots of sand, water, and fun in between. Nice accommodations with ceiling fans making sleeping very comfortable at night while providing a good breeze throughout the day. Kitchen had everything we needed. Truly paradise with the accommodations, setting, privacy, and scenery! Host Liz and Russ were fantastic. They are very knowledgeable of the island, very friendly, and were very helpful throughout the week. This was our 4th trip to St. John and 1st stay in Coral Bay. When we make a 5th trip we will be booking Lameshur Cottage!

We loved Lameshur Cottage and it was just as described and worked perfect for our needs. The feeling is very "island style" with simple furnishings but very tastefully decorated and super comfortable. It has everything you need for a self-sufficient vacation. We cooked breakfast in, picnic for the beach, and out to dinner each night! Liz and Russ are both very friendly, helpful and available but not intrusive in the least. If you are into a laid back, very remote destination in a beautiful setting with drop dead gorgeous beaches and snorkeling minutes away then this place is absolutely wonderful. If you are looking for "glitz and glamour" or a "party atmosphere", go elsewhere! Peace and tranquility rule in Coral Bay! We look forward to another visit soon.

Located in the hills between Salt Pond and Lameshur Bay these cottages are ideal for rest and relaxation. When we got there the sun was going down and Russ met us at the top of the driveway with a flashlight. He helped us unpack and proceeded to give us the full tour of the facility making us feel comfortable from the moment we arrived. The cottage had everything we could want and more. The kitchen was fully equipped including all the pans and utensils that we could want. Russ even pointed out the baking pans in case we wanted to make a cake while we were there although that was not on our agenda The walls of the cottage are lined with great books and classic DVD's and CD's. Every room had a ceiling fan that, along with the great breezes provided more than enough cooling power throughout our 11 night stay. The beds and furniture were extremely comfortable. A selection of beach chairs was provided along with beach towels and cooler and beach bag making it so easy for us to pack for our trip. Although mosquito nets were offered we did not even feel the need to apply bug spray during our entire stay. The peace and tranquility of this place cannot be exaggerated. Sitting on a hill surrounded by beuatiful flowering bushes there is little traffic yet it is located between some of the best snorkeling beaches on the island. At night the deck provides for some remarkable star gazing. We can't wait to go back.
