The Love Palace is such a wonderful place to have a weekend getaway. I stayed here with my husband twice already and it’s unlike any other place in St. John. The attention to detail in each and every room is absolutely unmatched! Beyond the wonderful accommodations, the hosts were also extremely warm and caring - taking care of our every need. Thank you so much for being such gracious hosts, we hope to be back again soon!
When you book vacation homes online there is always a bit of anxiety that the pictures may not be what you actual get. However The Love Palace was better than described! The house is beautiful and the views are breathtaking! If you can escape for a few days or even longer, I highly recommend it!
Very comfortable home perfect for our group of two couples. Right near the restaurants and bars in Cruz Bay and 10 minute walk to the beach. Host was very friendly and gave great recommendations on the best beaches in St John and helped us find a car rental.
My family had a great time in this beautiful, very convenient located house. It's very close to the town and easy to get by car , or by foot, close to the beach. It has a lots of outdoor space and gorgeous view. You can relax in a bathtub and enjoy the view.
We didn't want to leave the house and definitely will come back again!
First of you get of the ferry and I was surprised that the place was only an 8 minute walk up from the ferry. That's a big deal bc you're going to want to be close to Cruz Bay to swing by for dinner at Long Board and the other places and happy hour at Beach Bar. On the walk up from the ferry you swing by Dolphin Market (smaller of the 2 main super markets) which is about 5 mins from the house and you've got your first day provisions and liquor done on the walk over. Win!
The other nice thing about being walking distance to Cruz Bay is that you can walk from the house to NPS dock in like 10 mins and from there walk the leisurely trail to Solomon and Honeymoon beaches. Great local beaches with a lot less people.
Back to the house it's setup clearly by people that enjoy coming to STJ. Unlike other vacation rentals there's nice gas stove, new quality cookware, a German knife (I know cooking nerd), spices and a gas grill in good condition. All of which for a foodie like me is a big deal on vacation.
The bedroom is really cool. 2 walls are opening doors so you have unobstructed views of Cruz Bay, St Thomas and all the pretty sail boats coming and going straight from bed or the really cool tub. The rest of the house is really nice and airy while the property has a very cool island vibe with bananas and mangoes growing right in front of you.
