About St John Guest Suites

We have been in love with St John since our Honeymoon 28 years ago. Every year I would tell my husband, 'I do not want a Birthday Present, Valentines Hoopla or Christmas Gift, I just want a week alone with you on St John! And that is what we did, through the lean years and the flush years. We would come back to our favorite island, St John!

Having traveled extensively around the World and the Caribbean for business, we would always say, 'it's nice but it is not St John.' When the St John Bug bites you, it becomes a passion!! I really can not pick one thing that makes St John so special for us. We love the National Park, its trails, beaches and fabulous snorkeling! Crystal clear warm water, sand like talcum powder, uncrowded beaches and new sea life to discover each day! We adore the local citizens of the island who have always welcomed us warmly and graciously! There are not many places left in the world where you are greeted everywhere you go with a 'Good Morning' 'Good Afternoon' Have A Wonderful Day'! And tourists are expected to return the greeting or start the greeting before doing business with a person. The slower pace of 'Island Time' is very easy to fall into. 'Limin' (hanging out, usually with a drink) is a way of life! The perfect year round weather, the temperature only fluctuates 8-10 degrees between Winter and Summer. Wearing Flip Flops year round is a definite added plus! Our fabulous restaurants, from gourmet 5 star restaurants, to our local Caribbean fare sometimes purchased from a truck. Either of these meals could easily be your favorite of the week. I think our favorite part of St John, Is now that we really live here! Every year when we got off the ferry it felt like we were coming home and now we really are :)

St John Guest Suites purchased this hotel in 2011

Why St John Guest Suites chose Cruz Bay

We looked at many homes for sale on St John, but I really wanted to build to get the house I really wanted. I wanted to be North Chocolate Hole, with a panoramic ocean view. I did not want to be in a new development which means you might have to put up with building noise for another 10-20 years. I wanted an established neighborhood, like Rock Ridge Road and I wanted to be at the top. And well we are :)

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 7 nights in the Sugar Cane Suite. It was spotlessly clean with a nicely stocked kitchen, very comfortable bed, patio with propane barbecue and exquisite ocean views. The manager was extremely attentive - met us at the ferry, waited for us to pick-up our rental jeep and escorted us to the property. The pool is from a postcard and we usually had it to ourselves! The venue sits high up on Gifft Hill and the drive there is on a windy road with hairpin turns so careful driving is a must! Since it is outside of town, it offered privacy and a quiet related atmosphere. We enjoyed it so much we plan to go back again next spring. Also, our daughter and her fiancé are looking for a honeymoon spot next year and we are hoping they follow our St. John recommendation of staying at the St. John Suites!

Another amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place has been our best find after several years of vacations on St. John. The property is beautiful and impeccable - from the finishes to the setting to the views. We have stayed here three times and have the fourth visit already on the calendar. Beth and Jim are terrific hosts - available for whatever you need but provide complete privacy as well. The luxury quality of the rooms, pool, outdoor kitchen space, beach gear - and again, the views! - will impress. Can't wait to be back there!

This place was great. We'll be back to St. John one day and unless we choose to stay on the Coral Bay side we will definitely book St. John Guest Suites again.

Beautiful space to have on St John

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at St Johns Suites in the Pool House Suite celebrating our 32nd anniversary in May 2016. Beth & Jim were not on the island during this time however they left us in good hands with Marc who met us at our jeep rental and assured that all of our needs were met that week. Beth & Jim have a beautiful property that is well appointed with everything you may need for the week. We were grateful for the chairs/ cooler to take along with us daily as we explored as many of the beautiful beaches that we could. Hiking and snorkeling during the day, with a dip into the beautiful infinity pool when we returned to the suite was well enjoyed. There's a very nice outdoor kitchen to prepare a meal and enjoy the gorgeous views from this property. All of the information shared with us prior to arriving was extremely helpful in planning our week. Beth & Jim offer great suggestions for restaurants; La Tapa was incredible and our anniversary dinner at ZoZo's was pretty special. We highly recommend staying at St John Guest Suites it will not disappoint you. We look forward to returning again one day. Thank you Beth & Jim for offering such a beautiful place to rent.

Loved coming "home" to St John Guest suites

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary at St John and stayed in the Pool House suite. With it being our first time to St John we were unsure about how the location would work out. When we first arrived we had some concern that it was too far away from beaches, restaurants, etc. but as we settled into St John we decided it was the perfect place to retreat to after long days of exploring St. John. No matter where you stay in St. John you're going to want to do a fair amount of driving in order to explore all the amazing beaches and restaurants in both Cruz Bay and Coral Bay. St John Guest Suites is sort of on the "local" side of the island if there is one and it made us feel more at home. The accommodations were clean and luxurious, and the AC worked inviting after long days in the sun. One of the best parts is all the valuable information Beth provides. We felt so well prepared. It just couldn't have been a better experience for our first trip to St. John. We also loved Mark who met us at the jeep rental and provided a lot of tips. We made a lot of use out of the beach chairs and rafts the guest suites provide. Highly recommend St John Guest Suites, you won't be disappointed.
