"Well, it is day one of Skyflower withdrawal and we are doing as good as can be expected for leaving behind paradise for home in the midwest! We are expecting our first baby this year, so our focus for this vacation was the perfect, romantic week to celebrate our last months as a two person family. A lot of research went into finding our paradise, and we cannot believe how beyond expectations this trip was for us.
Pictures and words cannot even begin to express the true beauty of the Skyflower property. It is so much more than what is presented in this listing (everything listed is completely accurate). The minute we exited our jeep and headed down the stairs to Skyflower Suite, we knew we had found something special. No matter where we went on the island, nothing rivaled the view right outside our door from the expansive deck. But the view is not limited to breakfasts with Jan's delicious homemade banana muffins with tea or reading out on the deck - the view can be seen from the living area, kitchen, outdoor shower, and even lying in the comfortable king sized bed. There is nothing like waking up and looking out the door to see a beautiful sunrise over the surrounding islands.
To say Bill and Jan were gracious hosts is an understatement. I am so glad our time in St. John overlapped with the time they spend on the island. Besides being a wealth of knowledge for St. John, they are such genuine and nice people. Our stay would not have been as perfect as it was without their guidance to the best beaches, restaurants, etc., and we thoroughly enjoyed conversations with them on their deck. They hosted a cocktail hour with us before dinner one night, which was great. They even had a small gift for us (the most adorable sea turtle onesie for our future daughter)!
We would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone considering a trip to the Coral Bay side of St. John. For first timers like us, do not let the advice of "there's not as much to do on the Coral Bay side" fool you. We ate at a different restaurant every night, there is a small plaza with shops, restaurants, and a grocery store right at the bottom of the street from the property and many other attractions on the east side of the island are only a 10-15 minute drive. We did not return to the Cruz Bay side until it was (sadly)P time to leave.
Thank you so much Bill and Jan for a wonderful experience! We are truly grateful for everything and hope to see you again in the future!"

"My husband and I stayed at Palm Breezes. This was our first time visiting St. John. The condo is perfect. It met all of our needs and the owner and the management company were available to help with any of our concerns. Dave met us at the ferry dock and drove us to the condo which is just a short drive from Cruz Bay. The view from the balcony is spectacular - we enjoyed having drinks there every night. The pool was refreshing after an afternoon of shopping. The condo is well equipped, clean and comfortable. Its location is great - just a short walk into town. We absolutely loved our time on St. John and at Palm Breezes!!"

"My wife and I just returned from our first stay in St. John and Island Dreams was the perfect place for us. It's location is quiet and private and the view of Coral Bay was beautiful. We spent hours sitting by the pool and enjoying the view along with the island breeze. Beaches for snorkeling are only a short drive away. We grilled out almost every night and the kitchen was completely stocked with everything we needed. If you are looking for a place to completely unwind and remember who you are, this is the place!"

"From the moment we arrived on St John we knew we were in a special place. Laurie, Craig and their team exceeded our expectations in making sure all of our accommodations were perfect. Staying at the Grande Bay Resort was an ideal location for beach hopping and allowed us the luxury of walking to the shops, bars and restaurants in Cruz Bay. Mornings with coffee and in the evenings with a cocktail(s), the view from our balcony was a great way to start and end our day. Snorkeling with the sea turtles was a highlight we will never forget.
We have already begun planning our return visit next year!"
