Family Vacation in St. John
"We had a truly special time on St. John and staying at Larimar. This condo was a great value, super-convenient, and we loved it. We were close to all the restaurants, activities and trails, but in a quiet neighborhood. If were get to come back, we would rent it again. We had the pool to ourselves every day. Every meal we ate at the condo was on the spacious and shaded porch. We walked to downtown Cruz Bay for at least one meal each day, and while the hills were steep, they were short. The views of the boats and ships in the Bay, and the tiny salt pond, kept me occupied with binoculars for hours. We watched birds and lizards and iguanas A LOT. We appreciated the convenient parking along the street. We have two teenagers so the walking was easy, but if you have kids who are under 8, they might get worn out with all the fun St. John provides and THEN the uphill walk home. Wifi was key and worked flawlessly. The kitchen is well equipped and tidy. Finishes and linens are just fine - nothing special but comfortable and not so precious that you worried about dirty feet and sandy towels. And speaking of towels, they provide you with a TON and you cannot imagine why until you have used almost every single one - hiking to beaches, swimming in pool.
One caveat - there is not AC. If you "run hot" this condo might not be okay for a summer rental. In the winter/spring, I'm sure it is fine, but it was about 90 degrees all week for us. We were fine with the ceiling and floor fans. Oh, and bring earplugs sleeping - the local chickens and peacocks wake up very early and the screen-only windows don't let you shut them out.
Steve and Lisa got us settled and gave us the quick tour of town. They were available for any hitch or problem, but we never needed them. We would recommend a day sail charter and snorkeling with Captain Phil of the Wayward Sailor and also the ranger-guided hike on the Reef Bay Trail. Enjoy!"

Peaceful hillside retreat in St. John with stunning views
"Ginger Thomas villa was so cute and comfortable. Loved the Temper-pedic beds that provided a great night's sleep every night. Modern appliances and decor. Clean villa. The pool was divine. Loved the glass block shower. And the views of Cruz Bay were stunning at all times of the day, especially sunset. Owners supplied beach chairs, beach towels, kitchen towels, and stocked the bathroom with mango-based toiletries that smelled great. Loved the location as it was far enough away from town. Loved listening to the sound of crickets, birds, and tree frogs.
The only thing I would add would be a small ceiling fan and a small cafe table with 2 chairs in the kitchen area. October was unusually warm - locals said it hasn't been that hot in 5 years- for those days that you want to eat inside instead of using the table and chairs outside under the covered veranda."

"Having been to the Islands a few times, I knew exactly what I wanted on St. John. This condo exceeded my expectations. It was spotless, well maintained and completely furnished. That includes beach chairs, coolers, and beach towels. The washer and dryer was handy and now I know my next stay will only involve a carry on bag. The best part is it's a breeze to walk all over Cruz Bay and even the Dolphin Market for supplies. A short walk gets you to car rentals and taxis to beaches. Finally, the view from the balcony absolutely made the stay as this was how we began and ended our day. You simply can't go wrong in this one. I'll be back as soon as I can."
