Great condo and location
The condo was perfect for a group of 4. We spend late afternoons out by the pool enjoying a beverage and a few snacks. CimmaronStJohn was great to work with. They were available as needed and around most days cleaning the walks and pool area. It was only a 5 minute walk down to the shops and restaurants or to catch a taxi for the beach. (A few minutes longer on the way back as it was uphill..) I would recommend Panacea to any small group planning to visit St John.
Great condo for a family
Here are the things I loved about this condo: we had plenty of room for a family of 4 adults. We really appreciated having the extra bed in the alcove, making it like a 3-bedroom unit. The condo is in excellent condition, very clean and well-equipped, with TV, Netflix, and a good selection of DVD's. Lots of soft towels are provided and the kitchen is pretty well equipped as well. The location was really convenient to Cruz Bay, so we never needed to drive to dinner and we were also able to walk to the harbor and the National Park trails. The walk is steep down and up, so if the hills can't be managed, taxis are readily available. Cimmarron St. John does a good job meeting you and giving orientation to the condo. They are also responsive to requests for repairs and for planning trips. A few things to be aware of are that the condo is located right above the town, so it is noisy at night. However, if you shut the windows the noise can be managed. This condo doesn't have a much of a view from the outdoor deck, you need to go down to the pool (a few steps away) to have a view. There were plenty of mosquitoes indoors and out, although they only seemed to bother me and not the rest of my family. I used a lot of bug spray inside and outside the condo, and didn't use the outdoor deck because of the mosquitoes. There are beach chairs available, but they are shared with the other 8 condos in Battery Hill, so we had a couple of days that no chairs were available. Overall, it was a very good place for our family.
Great condo with great location
Pawan is very accommodating and made sure that our visit went as smoothly as possible. Our return flight home was cancelled due to snow in the states and Pawan was more than accommodative to let us stay the extra night in paradise. The central location in Cruz Bay allows you to not rent a jeep, but still have good access to all of the island via taxis or the bus. There is ample parking if you do rent a Jeep. The walk to the dock area of Cruz Bay is a short one, but is a bit of a climb on the way back up. We found the condo to be very well equipped and clean upon our arrival. Throughout the stay everything was in working order and we could not have enjoyed it more. We have stayed in other condos on St John, and Panacea has the most space we have found, easily accommodating up to 6 people. There is a large deck attached to Panacea that we used most nights to enjoy the breezes. During your stay Panacea is managed by Cimmarron who is very responsive to any request. We planned to take a deep sea fishing trip and they suggested a charter company upon our arrival who turned out to be fantastic. One of the best fishing charters I have been on. This was our sixth year in a row to St John, but easily the best accommodations. We will be staying at Panacea again in our future trips to St John.
Panacea is a wonderful villa in our favorite location on Battery Hill. We've been to St. John 20 times and like to try different places and this is one of our favorites for location and convenience to downtown Cruz Bay. The villa is perfectly equipped and in very good condition. Parking is convenient for rental cars and there are beach chairs and coolers available for those wonderful days on the beach. The on-island agent, Cimmaron, handled the check-in and check-out process with ease. They called on first day when power went out island-wide, to provide updates and help answer any questions. We had a lovely week with friends, who stayed in another Battery Hill unit. It's a great way to spend a holiday week. My only caveat is the construction going on right next door. Pawan proactively and graciously extended a discount for our week for any inconvenience, which was appreciated.

Adorable condo in a perfect location!
We had such an amazing stay at Panacea! This was our 4th stay on St. John, but our first stay at Panacea. We have previously stayed at the Westin and another condo in Cruz Bay and this is definitely our favorite place to stay so far! First off, the booking process of the condo was seamless. Pawan, the owner, responded to all emails in a very timely manner which made our vacation planning super easy and stress free! The condo has a nice island feel with the decor and is very comfortable. It was the perfect size for a couple people to stay (we had 4 of us) without getting in the way of one another. We loved having the extra sun room and deck off the living room as both areas gave just a little added space if we wanted some alone time to just relax. The condo was very well supplied with everything from linens, to kitchen supplies...anything we needed to make it feel like home for the week was available. Also, I know this may sound silly, but the wifi connection was the best we've had out of any of the places we have past stayed which was great when we wanted to connect back to the real world ;)
Battery Hill, the condo complex, is very well maintained and has some great ammenities as well. There is a pool with a gorgeous view of Cruz bay which we came back to every evening after the beach to have a cocktail and enjoy the sunset. There is also a grill if you decide to cook and stay in for dinner, beach chairs you can bring to the beach, and laundry on site. There is a parking spot for each unit in case you are planning to rent a car as well, which I highly recommend!
Lastly, the location can't be beat! The condo is situated right above Cruz bay and all the shopping and restaurants. It is just a short walk down to town. You can either go down a large hill (where you end up by Woody's) or a couple smaller hills (where you end up by the Beach Bar). The walk back up can be a little challenging, but we decided it was our exercise for the week and managed to walk it every day and night! If you choose not to walk, it's only a $5 taxi ride per person which is definitely the most inexpensive ride from/into town.
I would definitely recommend Panacea if you are looking for a relaxing place to stay close to all the action of Cruz bay! We will definitely be staying there again the next time we are on the island!
