What I meant is that don't need a 2 bedroom villa for $4000 a week for 2 people.

How about a studio at Coconut Coast ? Walking distance to town and won't break the bank.




Coconut Coast is a great suggestion albeit after a night in town we have gotten lost on the walk back. There are a few hills.

I can highly recommend Ilios, a 3-bedroom villa overlooking Hart Bay. The 1-week rate for 2 persons is about $2000 plus tax in off season (mid April to mid December), and double that in high season.

Wife and I stayed there for 8 days in Nov 2014. Large private pool. Large master bedroom with balcony overlooking pool with views to Hart Bay and Caribbean. Master BR unit is separate from the living/dining room/kitchen unit. Short walk on a private trail to the rocky beach at Harts Bay. Less than 10 minute drive to Cruz Bay.

We've also stayed several times in this 1 bedroom penthouse villa at Grand Bay. $300-$425/night plus tax. Fair bit of outdoor patio space with unobstructed views across Cruz Bay. Shared pool, hottub, fitness center. Indoor parking garage. Short walk to Cruz Bay restaurants and Dolphin Market.

I got it! http://www.stjohnguestsuites.com/current-rates.html

Really nice owners, nearly new units.

What your friends are seeking is very much in demand in STJ and there just isn't many nice, 1BR units in that price range with a pool and AC. They shouldn't wait to book.

Jay and Cleo both have very good recommendations. I know both owners, great people. Grande Bay is super convenient to walk and includes a reserved parking spot. St. John Guest Suites has killer views and a lot fewer people.

...my favorite vill is Allesandra - https://www.vrbo.com/729405?k_clickid=e7...fcpQaAq1j8P8HAQ

Cheers, RickG

If staying on St John for a week, are there any good grocery stores to provision from or do you have to shop in STT? Thanks

Starfish Market and Dolphin Market in Cruz Bay offer plenty of selection. Unless you are renting a car on St. Thomas and taking the car ferry over I wouldn't bother with provisioning on St. Thomas.

Not sure why but the responses seem clustered in Cruz Bay area, which certainly has more choices for bars, restaurants, but we have gravitated to Coral Bay for a much more laid back and relaxing time. Several very good restaurants, including Aqua Bistro, Shipwreck Landing and Miss Lucy's...no crowds, access to beaches, and much quieter. We have rented several one bedroom places with a pool (that does not have to shared!) for reasonable rates. There is a grocery next to Aqua Bistro as well. And should you crave anything they don't carry, a ride into Cruz Bay is not more than 20 minutes.

I'll frequently recommend Coral Bay after the first trip. Getting to Coral Bay in the dark after a long day of travel can be overwhelming. Not really an issue in this case.

Cheers, RickG
