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 :)

Peaceful getaway with great views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We loved the property. Everything was perfect. Chris gave excellent suggestions for dinner and was fantastic. Really relaxed vibe in a beautiful setting. The room (Sugar Cane) was great. Roomy with gorgeous views to wake up to. Highly recommend. Thanks, Chris and Jen for making our trip absolutely wonderful.

Absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The Sugar Cane Suite at St. John Guest Suites exceeded our expectations during our recent stay! This place had everything we could have hoped for in a place to stay: super clean and welcoming, appliances and facilities that worked (not always the case on the island) and a spectacular view of the south shore. Chris and Jen were wonderful to work with from the time that we booked the suite until we left on the ferry. No need to shop around for a place to stay the next time we visit the island...we'll be back at St. John Guest Suites for sure!

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!
