  • Second time around

    "A true testomony of our love of Andura was that we came back, as we had a flawless vacation here last year. We did notice some differences however which we did not expect based upon the pricey,yet competitive, rate of such luxury. This year the bronze wall fountain did not function and was not repaired during our stay. Seems like a little issue unless you had experienced the hundreds of hummingbirds using it as their tropical bar last year. We came in on Super Bowl Sunday and alas none of the televisions worked. Of course you may also be thinking that we were on vacation, who needs TV? It would have nice to have at least been able to watch the big game. The TV / satellite issue was partially resolved mid-week after two calls so we could finally get music in the great room. To this day we are unable to switch it to the gazebo/ pool area speakers. One of our party is a a wonderful amateur chef. He delights in using what we have on hand to create delectable dishes. But alas, the beautiful commercial gas range had electronic sparking issues all week and did not appear to have been cleaned in quite some time. (Resulting in stained clothes.) Light fixtures need cleaning outside and light bulbs need to be replaced. All this being said we know is genuinely minor but... We have grown to expect clean, properly functioning facilities, especially if we are willing to pay the price. If we were the owners we would want to know these things and would drill down to whose resposility it is to keep it at 100%. We love this place and do not want to see it decline. Just sayin'."

  • Amazing Week!

    "This was our first trip to St. John and it was amazing! Bambooshay was a perfect spot and exceeded our needs. We started every morning with coffee on the deck and finished every evening on the deck! Explored many beaches and hiking trails really can't pick a favorite. Enjoyed the local flavors at Skinny Legs, Aqua Bistro, Shipwreck, Concordia. It was hard to leave but we will back."

  • Our Winter Escape to Rhumb Runners

    "We (a Medicare eligible but far from immobile couple) returned to our hill farm home in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region late Saturday night, Feb. 28, 2015 from a week at Rhumb Runners to find that the brutal, relentless winter we had escaped was still going strong. That week was a wonderful respite and Rhumb Runners, the Coral Bay area and the east end of St. John were what made it so. Perched high above a busy area next to Coral Bay harbor (up 5 switchbacks on a challenging, but paved, road, which our Jeep Wrangler from Cool Breeze rentals was able to handle when dry without resort to 4-wheel drive, absolutely required when the road was wet or in some other situations encountered), Rhumb Runners was ideal for us. Rhumb Runners is private, bright, clean, roomy, airy (no shortage of wind), with exceptional views of the harbor, east end and the BVI beyond, and a nice, very private pool. Chris and Mike were ideal hosts, took care of small problems (e.g., replacing a new, but non-functioning microwave) and interesting company to be with, although after introducing us to the place, they let us have our space to ourselves. Aside from occasional showers (mostly brief downpours in the middle of the night), the weather was good (much better than NH!!!). We had dinner each night at local restaurants, examples: best conch fritters in 18 years BVI and USVI experience at Miss Lucy’s; great grilled yellow snapper escobiche at Concordia; best seared tuna had anywhere at Aqua Bistro. We enjoyed the local beaches: Salt Pond (a hike downhill, uphill back), Round Bay (called Haulover south, uncrowded and steps from your car) and Vie’s at Hansen Bay in the east end (an uncrowded, sandy beach for which a donation of $2.50 per person was requested and happily provided). We also went to Waterlemon Bay beach (requires a level hike of maybe 2/3rds mile in and out, but what was said to be best snorkeling was too far out for swimmers of our level). Driving by other north shore beaches to the west we found that they mostly lacked sun early in the day and became very crowded later. So, to sum up, we had a great week and very much enjoyed our stay at Rhumb Runners, which we highly recommend."
