Destination guide

Laid-back living in Estate Emmaus

Dominated by the Virgin Islands National Park, Saint John is the smallest and most unspoiled of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Nestled on the island's southeastern side, Estate Emmaus is a quiet community that sits within sight of the impossibly-blue waters of Coral Bay Harbor. Far from the hustle and bustle of Cruz Bay, the island's main town, Estate Emmaus vacation rentals serve up the perfect base for travelers who prefer to stay off the beaten track. Life here goes by at a laid-back pace, with an array of relaxed outdoor activities and quaint waterfront dining spots quite literally on the doorstep.

Things to do

Natural wonders galore in Estate Emmaus

By far the most-lauded attraction on Saint John is the Virgin Islands National Park. Home to a herd of around 300 wild donkeys, the park occupies more than half the island. Hiking through its lush surroundings is a popular pastime, though it's also worth hiring a jeep to venture a little further afield. Discover early Carib relics and the ruins of several 18th-century sugar plantations, including the landmark Annaberg Plantation. Be sure to look out for the remains of America Hill Estate House, thought to be the base for rum-runners in the days of prohibition.


Winter sun in idyllic Estate Emmaus

Near-perfect temperatures bless Saint John for much of the year, with averages coming in somewhere between the low 70s and high 80s, regardless of the season. That said, many travelers are keen to avoid the threat of hurricanes, opting instead to enjoy their Estate Emmaus vacation during the winter months of December through March. This peak winter season offers plenty of sun, the least rain and refreshingly-cool waters. Be aware, though, that demand for Estate Emmaus vacation rentals is high at this time of year, so it pays to secure your favorite spot well in advance.

Picture-perfect landscapes in Estate Emmaus

Expect to see parrotfish, angelfish and even the odd barracuda. If you prefer amenities close at hand, you might head to the beach at Trunk Bay, in the island's northwest, where a small entrance fee guarantees the perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by.
