"Where to start? We needed a place to unplug and unwind and this was perfect! The view was amazing, like postcard amazing. The beach was rocky and rough and awesome for shell hunting. The path over to Neltjeburg Bay was AMAZING!!!! We used to live on island and I thought you had to go to St. John to see views like that while hiking, here it's in your own backyard. The best restaraunt on island (Thirteen) is right up the hill. We ate there once and then ordered a carryout our last night. The condo had everything you could need/want and then some. Very well stocked. The owner was prompt and went above and beyond. Was even willng to try to find us a car to borrow while there when our rental fell through. YOU HAVE TO HAVE A CAR. Preferably an SUV. Driving back and forth to different places we never took that same way twice (even when we tried:-)) and it was a great way to see ALL of the island. If you are wanted a base to island hop or explore everyday this is probably not the place for you. It's 45\60 minutes from Red Hook and 30 minutes to Charlotte Amalie. However if you are on vacation to sit, relax and take in postcard views of beach, palm trees and blue oceans, explore trails and private beaches, listen to waves hitting the shore lulling you to sleep, and not have to worry about if you left something at home, THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!! We have a 3 and 5 year old and I would have felt totally comfortable bringing them. The local kids were always out playing. I think kids would have a blast here. The locals were great. Friendly and willing to answer any questions but never once bothered us. We never even used to pool. Wifi worked great when we needed it."
