My husband and I stayed in a studio condo for 2 nights before our villa rental became available. This is our 6th trip to St. John and I was pleasantly surprised by this resort. The location is terrific and the views of the harbor and its constant activity were entertaining...no need for the TV ;-). The staff were very helpful....

Dear JesseS: I "highly recommend" that you come back! Thank you so much for the wonderful and complimentary review. I am indeed privileged to work with such a talented group of people! Location is something you have but caring and helpfulness has to come from within and to borrow a commercial phrase "These guys are good"!! Kind regards, Paul

We stayed in C202 and rented from VRBO. We had a one bedroom and a studio. It was perfect for 4 adults and one toddler. The location couldn't be better. You can walk to everything in Cruz Bay. The condo has an awesome view from both balconies. Nice pool! I would def stay here again!

Dear Anonymous222, I am glad you enjoyed our location and the cleanliness of the rooms. I am concerned about your comment regarding "overbearing staff" and would like to address your view. That has not been the experience of many other guests and really warrants addressing. Please feel free to reach out to me privately at 340-693-4662 to discuss your impressions....
