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
