Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for a week and we could not have been happier. Our hosts were so nice and welcoming - and the apartment was spacious and clean. They had fresh flowers, fruit and coconut cookies waiting for us when we arrived. Great views and close proximity (everything's close in St John's!) to Cruz Bay. We will stay here again!!

Great Stay on St. John.

  • 5 of 5

Ralph and Janet were very hospitable and easy to work with. The apartment is located very close to all the activities in Cruz Bay and easily accessible with a car. The apartment was clean and cool - a nice breeze ran through all the time, but the air conditioner was nice at night. Would recommend to anyone looking for a low key, affordable place to stay after long days on the beach.

Great host and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a business trip and couldn't have loved it more. Ralph was the best host ever and the location was close and convenient to town. Everyone in town knows Ralph (tell the taxi driver to take you to Ralph's house!) so if you are looking for a great local place to stay- look no further!

Owner's Response: For guests who who are curious about St. John during the past six decades, you might enjoy chatting with Ralph who was born on the island and lived all his life here except for the occasional trip off-island. You will get information that would not necessarily appear online or in a book. Ask him what it was like growing up in St. John in the 1940's.

Comfortable, clean, relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our host, Ralph Prince, met us at the ferry and led us to our apartment. He showed us around and pointed out the fresh fruit on the table and fresh flowers, and then pretty much left us alone for the remainder of our trip. We did see him a few times as we were coming and going at which point he always was extremely friendly and asked if we needed anything.

The apartment was absolutely fantastic. There was a wonderful breeze blowing through the windows in the evening making a comfortable temperature in the main area, and the air-conditioners in the bedrooms made sleeping wonderful. The space was big enough to cook dinner and host our son, who lives in Saint John, and his friends.

We would definitely recommend this place to others and also stay here again when coming back to the islands.

Car: recommended

Prince Apartment is on the third floor of an owner-occupied house. It is located near the top of a steep hill. It is a great walk for the physically fit, but might be challenging for older persons.

Places to visit include the National Park Visitor Center, Trunk Bay, Annaberg, and the Cinnamon Bay Museum.
