My husband & I have stayed at this great little place on our three trips to the USVI - before & after vacationing on St John. The location on historic Blackbeard's Hill affords stunning views of Charlotte Amalie & the harbor. The rooms are clean, comfortable & secure - with special touches like beach towels, wifi & plush sheets. Managers...

Thank you for finding us! We see a lot of flight delays and cancellations leading to missed ferrys to the other islands and are happy to provide one night stays for our Guests. While it is always best to make a reservation, we welcome stranded Visitors! (And we love to here everyone's story too!)

The title says it all. I've stayed here a bunch of times, and if you read my reviews you'll see that I've always enjoyed it. But John and Gwen keep finding little ways to make it even better every time I come, which is impressive, considering how much I liked it to begin with! Green Iguana is the best hotel...

We are happy you enjoyed your stay on either end of your sailing adventure! Lots of our Guests enjoy "detoxing" from everyday life at the beginning and then as a "vacation after the vacation" before heading home! We hope to see you again next year!
