 The Sweet Sunrise Reviews

A little bit of heaven at the Sunrise Sweet/Joy of Life Villa
“We felt very at home while staying in this studio villa. Every detail has been thought of to make guests comfortable. It is a very large studio with a complete kitchen, nice furnishings, nice bathroom and a screened in porch. An extra bonus is the outside shower. There is an indoor shower also. We often watched the sunrise from the comfort of the king size bed, what a treat. The television with the Netflix subscription and the many movies stocked in the villa is also a nice extra. We were amazed by the views from the large deck every single day and the sunrises were often spectacular. We always ate breakfast on the deck and enjoyed the warm breeze and the view. The location on Coral Bay could not be better. It is minutes from all the fun and good food restaurants. It is also an easy drive over to the North Shore Beaches. We spent a good amount of time on the east end and enjoyed the beach at Hansen Bay. The villa owners keep kayaks and paddle boards there for their renters. The woman who owns the land at that beach charges just a few dollars for parking, no need to arrive early to get a spot. She provides chairs and loungers under the shade of beautiful old trees, plus interesting conversation if you are so inclined. We really appreciated the quality beach chairs and cooler and noodles for floating, made beach time so enjoyable. We were invited to join Karen and Jeff, the villa owners, at their weekly beach BBQ, with friends, and had a wonderful day. Karen and Jeff answered all our questions and gave us tips about things to do while on the island and Karen provides provisioning services if you would like some basics in the villa when you arrive. We found that to be very helpful after a long travel day. We highly recommend this villa and hope to return to enjoy it all again.

Outstanding hosts, impeccably clean property, every amenity, gorgeous view, heavenly experience!
We have traveled all over the world occupying many properties, this one far exceeded our highest expectations! Honestly, the owners could not do any better to serve our needs. We never rent a studio, often we will rent a two or three bedroom property for the two of us just because we want it all! This is advertised as a studio, which it is, BUT, it is large, boasts stunning views, you see the sunrise every morning and the stars at night will send you off to beautiful dreams. The hosts provide all kinds of water sport activity toys, we enjoy paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling, beach combing, photography and peace, and quiet. It’s all here folks, look no further. The hosts are gracious, even though they occupy the property up about 50 steps, you never know they are there. We found them to be as caring as they care for this home. We left the property knowing it will be one of our desires to return OFTEN! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with travelers. As prior VRBO homeowners, we know how difficult it is to keep up an island property and they take care so well. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to enjoy the “Joy of Life”. We look forward to sharing our experience with our friends and recommending your property to many! Happy new year! We wish you a beautiful life!

Sunrise sweet is a magical place.
Sunrise Sweet is a comfortable, tastefully decorated, light and airy space overlooking Coral Bay towards Tortola, with a daily spectacular view of the sunrise, and nightly viewing of the constellations and Milky Way. My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at the Sunrise Sweet and we already look forward to returning. Karen and Jeff take a lot of pride in their property and were always happy to answer questions or give advice about adventures on the Island. They made themselves invisible, but could always be found. We had a tire that needed air and Jeff went out of his way to fill it for us in the rain! Thanks again, Jeff! The villa was clean and neat and full of natural light. There is air conditioning but we were happy sleeping with the windows open and the trade wind breezes airing the room. We particularly appreciated the comfortable king size bed. We arrived in the evening and drove our jeep to Coral Bay. Karen met us in the center of Coral Bay and led us to the property which we really appreciated. Snorkeling gear and beach chairs and towels and noodles and coolers were provided and we used them every day. It was a wonderful vacation and the Sunrise Sweet is a magical spot.
