"After 20 years of marriage, my wife and I made our first trip to the US Virgin Islands. Saint John was all we were told it would be .... and more. Making this the perfect "second honeymoon", was largely due to finding Memory Makers. The flight to Saint Thomas airport from Virginia was easy and short. An exhilarating taxi ride to red Hook ( the island roads all twist and turn) and a fast ferry trip to Cruz Bay landed us a mere three blocks from the condo.The condo was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. There are even beach things in a bin on the patio balcony.To call the condo luxurious, is a bit of an understatement. Marble and glass everywhere, wonderful bathrooms, the best bed I ever slept on, exquisite decorations ... and a TV/entertainment system on steroids. But, the better thing is how "comfortable" it is. Every item we needed for cooking, comfort, laundry, etc. was already there. On an island where shopping is not as simple as in the states, this is a huge plus. The view from the balcony was the best I could have asked for. Full view of the bay and harbor, the other islands in the background , and stunning sunsets. The owners had made great suggestions for day trips, places to eat, and things to see. There was a dive shop right at the end of the condos, a quick walk of a block to The Beach Bar ( great for quick snacks, rum punch, and Limin' D'coconut). The rest of the shops and restaurants are in the next few blocks. Transportation on the island is simple - you just climb in the back of any "taxi" ( cleverly converted pick-up trucks) and go anywhere on the island for $5. There are more restaurants than one could visit in a month, and as far as we could tell, all are excellent. The weather is nice (warm and sunny), and you can easily walk anywhere in Cruz Bay.
We recommend any who comes to take a day trip to Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. Visiting Foxy's and Soggy Dollar are something everyone should do at least once in their life.
To sum it all up, Memory Makers made our vacation more enjoyable, and made us promise to come back again next year."
