  • ESTATE CONTANT BEATS WESTIN CANEEL BAY HANDS DOWN

    "ESTATE CONTANT BEATS THE WESTIN, & CANEEL BAY HANDS DOWN MAKES MY TOP TEN LIST FOR A GENUINE CARRIBEAN EXPERIENCE The Tenant Estate lodgings by Escape Together--—may not be a big luxury hotel with fancy furniture, and its view may not be as glorious as some (though it comes close). But if you are looking for great hosts, a great place and a genuine Caribbean experience this it! With our hosts guidance, we found ourselves engaging with local people as if we were natives, taking back roads to far towns in quest of adventure, lunching in the most idyllic tropical havens.. I learned from experience that the big name hotels are like a comfort zone with their designer pools, water sports, and welcome bars, but once you enter its hard to escape them except for the obligatory Taxi Ride to Cruz Bay to do officially sanctioned tourist things, or the for an obligatory for dinner or that one trip to the beach. Robert and his Wife’s open, friendly, Caribbean starts to rub off on you from the moment you arrive and show you around the flat. It’s clear from the get go that they have thought of everything, from strong internet connectivity, the sine qua non of any great hotel today, to fans and AC to combat warm air, and from beach chairs, to sun screen, and Off. As you sit on the beautiful porch at Content Estates and stare off a three masted schooner at anchor in the bay below, you find your brain, disconnecting, and your body relaxing from a world where it may be your misfortune to think too hard about just about everything. It dawns on you, "Wow! I am really on vacation." Robert and family, my hosts at Estate Contant helped me realize the best part of a Saint John vacation is not just Pina Coladas, balmy temperatures, turquoise blue waters, but the wonderful people on remarkable island. Robert gave me a great tip for interacting with locals. "Just say, Good morning, Good Afternoon, Good evening to locals and it will make a world of difference. " I did and people consistently responded with great smiles, a helping hand, even hugs! Robert is full of local tips and lore . . . Back roads to far towns, the Fish Ruben in Coral Bay, Hit Maho beach for snorkeling and sea turtles, dinner at Candies Barbecue, a local hangout down the road, One thing is certain I will be back again next year. Couldn’t fit it all in. I wish I had booked in at Escape Together for a week longer. Take my advice, stay here when you come to Saint John"

  • Treetop Retreat

    "We were so happy we chose Sonnenskuss for our stay on St John. This being our forth visit to the island, we use to do Maho and Concordia, we wanted to be close to town. This is the perfect one bedroom very comfortable open air apartment. The views from the deck in the morning over coffee and in the evening for sunset are spectacular, even saw some beautiful rainbows on the rainy days. Gary is so accommodating, from the flowers in the coconut shell in the morning to having a beautiful water fall piece in a beautiful lush green sanctuary area (only needs a small seat so you can enjoy the area and your coffee) Even though we rented a car for the ten days we enjoyed being able to walk to town each evening, have dinner and drinks and work off some of those calories on the hill back up to the room. We chose to have our breakfast's and lunches in the apartment or when we were out hiking or on the beaches and went to town for dinners so we did not do a lot of cooking. It was also wonderful to spend a little time upstairs talking to Charlotte, what a wonderful lady! You can't go wrong if you are a looking quiet room with a great view, just don't tell too many people, we look forward to returning again."

    "Our family was blessed to have found such a beautiful home on the south side of St. John with easy access to all the island has to offer. Superb home with open island feel and plenty of space to unwind. Gorgeous views along the expansive porch overlooking the ocean below that provides ample shade to stay cool on hot days. The exterior landscaping and pool area were fantastic along with a high quality gas grill to cook fresh fish from The Fish Trap in Cruz Bay. Each bedroom is spacious and relaxing and spread out in the home from each other for privacy. The kitchen has every amenity that you could ever require a coffee maker, blender, pots and pans, cooking knives, etc... There was a full spice rack for your creations. Making the arrangements was easy and Hilarie assisted with our jeep rental. Any questions or concerns were promptly addressed however we really didn't have any issues since the home was great. As someone else noted, the end of the road is gravel and a bit bumpy but don't be alarmed since it keeps other people from adventuring to the home for privacy and once you make it to the home the first time it is not a problem. Going for walks down the road to boatmen point is nice and there is always the Easterly Trade Winds to keep you cool. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay on the island and would strongly recommend Hart Bay Ridge and working with Hilarie. Wifi throughout the home is great for teenagers. Excellent TV and satellite with Blu Ray in two spots in the home to watch movies or listen to music."
