              Other Amenities

                  • Strongly suggest renting a 4 wheel vehicle for sightseeing from the many car rentals near the St John ferry dock or from St Thomas airport. There are steep, windy paved roads all the way from the dock to the lower level of villa 'Iola' and the drive past the lower driveway to the upper level car port parking is a typical, unpaved, bumpy, steep, island road. You can also take the bus from the nearby 'Tourist Trap', an outdoor restaurant to go across island from Salt Pond to Cruz Bay (town) for only $1. It runs from 6:00AM to 7:00PM every hour on the hour. There are hiking trials all over the island and many beaches to choose from. Over one half of the island is part of the National Park with old slave plantation ruins and great adventure. Our beaches are renown for great snorkeling. We are off the beaten path!!!...moreless

                              'Iola' is located 10 minutes past Coral Bay 'Town' on the quiet end of St John. Suggest you rent a 4wd vehicle to enjoy the adventures and all the places you want to explore. From Cruz Bay cross the island via Centerline Road which takes about 35 minutes.

                              Other Activities: St John has over 40 hiking trails thru the national park & over 22 beaches

                              About the owner: We first visited St John on our honeymoon. We fell in love with this island immediately and never left. Come see for yourself. Warning! St John can be addictive. Many lose their soles and leave their souls behind.

                              Paradise for sailors, beach lovers, snorkelers and hikers. Over 23 beaches and hiking trails too.
