Quiet nights on St. John
Very interesting driving on St. John! Our time at Pine Cone was very nice. Owner if very helpful with all our questions. She had her husband pick us up at the dock and drive us to our Jeep rental which they arranged for us. We stopped along the way to Star Market for groceries and led us to our rental. Took us a few days to get use to where it is because of driving on the island. Everything looks exactly like it does on the pictures. It was nice to have the kitchen all equipped. The linens and towels were nice. We had beach towels, chairs and blow up tubes for swimming. It was also nice to have a washer and dryer. The beaches were great for snorkeling, where we saw many assortments of fish and turtles! We did the hike to Waterlemon beach which is not that easy since you are walking on stones etc. The other hike was on the Lind trail which took us to Solomon Beach. That was more difficult because it is through roots of trees, rocks and a steeper incline. But all worth it. We hit every beach we could and they were all amazing. Our favorite place to have a drink and sandwich was the Beach Bar. Had to have a Pain Killer! We liked the food at Sun Dog cafe and we also ate at Greengos .I would highly recommend Pine Cone. We had a great time on St. John and had a great host!
Great place about 12 minutes from Cruz Bay downtown
My wife and I stayed here the last full week of May. While a winding drive from downtown (most of St John is hilly), it's a great place to come back to after snorkeling (enough beaches to go to a different 1 each day).
Master bedroom: solid A/C unit + nice sized TV. Plenty of storage for clothes + nice size bathroom attached (albeit with no door). A washer/dryer room allowed us to take 1/2 the clothes we normally would.
A deck wraps around back side of house, offering a view of Fish Bay from the 4-person patio dining table. The long stretch of deck faced the mountains (normally lush, but not now due to an extended rain drought). On the back side of deck is a wonderful 6+ person hot tub + lounge chairs.
The kitchen/living room/dining area was nice sized and open, with plenty of seating. Kitchen was furnished with all the utensils needed to dine. We used the grill once. It's not the fastest to heat up but did fine for cooking steaks we got at 1 of 2 grocery stores. While kitchen/living room/dining area is not air conditioned, the fan in the living room area + all the windows did a nice job of keeping up good air flow.
We did not see the extra bedroom as it was locked, so we can't comment on how it compares to the master.
All you need for the beach in way of coolers (plus a small ice pack), chairs, towels, umbrellas and even inflatables is in the house.
For TV/internet/cell: wireless was decent (not sure for streaming), AT&T cell phone service worked and there is cable w/high def channels.
As to noise: it was pretty quiet. Yes, as it is high up, sounds did carry from neighbors and even those in the valley below, but everyone seemed respectful.
Advice: rent a vehicle (a jeep suggested)! There are plenty of options. We suggest parking at the top of the driveway, like most residents do. And take it slow on the dips in the road once you reach road at bottom of Sky Top Drive. Wow!
On your way in to town, there are 2 gas stations. Stay in good shape on gas, especially if you go to the other side of the island (Coral Bay), where there is NO gas station.
Food: we stopped a lot at Star Fish Market on our way to a beach. They have great wraps, big enough for 2, plus nice bakery and many other items for dining. There is a second market closer to the Westin, but we prefer Star Fish. For dining, we're not fancy: great beers/happy hour at Tap Room, enjoyed Gringos for Mexican & High Tide for conch fritters + sunset watching.
We'll be back!
Great rental property!!
My girlfriend and I stayed here for 11 nights in March. We loved every minute of our stay the house was spotless when we arrived and was very accommodating with everything you would need to cook or stuff for the beach. The bed was comfortable location was great and the owner was very helpful. We also rented a jeep from Catherine and that went just as smoothly. One of the greatest things of this location is if you walk from the house up the hill there's an entrance to a trail that brings you to the Sieban ruins with the beautiful baobab tree all walking distance from the house!! Can't wait to return
