Wow, talk about a surprise. I researched for a couple days on where to stay- let's face it, St. John is expensive, but this place was very reasonably priced. I booked this B&B for two nights, and I think we ended staying three. Best thing about this place (of the many?) Karen and Hank. Great people. They are amazing at keeping in contact, great with instructions, and wonderful to have breakfast with. Next best thing? Attention to detail. Everything is well done- the place is immaculate, has a really cool nautical theme, and has everything from a BBQ grill to rum and coke waiting for you in your room. We traveled 10 days in the VIs, and this was by far the best B&B we stayed at.
It is in the treetops, and not on a beach, so be ready for that- but, the hill it's on is surrounded by trees, and there is a really neat creek-thing in the back- beautiful. It is about 10ish minutes from town- fun drive. Room we stayed in had two a/c units, fridge, nice bathroom, etc. The shower is outside, which is really cool- the girl was hesitant at first, but she was sold after the first shower.
Rent a Jeep (you'll need one on St. John), get a bushwacker at Woody's, and stay here. This is where I'll stay from now on- no need to pay $400 a night- and hey, you don't get Karen and Hank at those places!
