A house stereo provides poolside, porch, and great room entertainment with Dish network and Sirius radio. Netflix and Amazon Prime available (on renter's account) in great room. All bedrooms have carved plantation style beds and beautiful furnishings and linens. All bedrooms have air conditioning and Bose iPod docks.

Car: Recommended

St. John offers excellent snorkeling and diving. Boating is some of the best in the world. The island is 2/3 National Park with 22 marked hiking trails. While it is Nature's Paradise, St. John is also known for its superlative restaurants. Casual, slow-paced island living at its best.
