If you really want to have TA wonderful day on the water, you might look into a day boat trip with Captain John Brandi at Palm Tree Charters. They accommodate 6 people and either you decide where you want to go or the Captain can help you make a plain advance. They video their trips on you tube. Take a look for Palm Tree Charters on U tube..

Villa Altagracia would be a good fit. Close to town, pool, ac in bedrooms and pretty good view of St. Thomas. Catered To I think still reps this property.

Drake's View, wow! What a gorgeous villa. I am a sucker for that mountaintop view, and it's hard to beat the one at DV. Love that semi-circular patio! Looks like a Max Parrish painting. (No, I've never stayed there, but I like to look...)

It sounds like everything is falling into place. You will have a wonderful time!

Okay, that does it, I'm gonna book that cheap airfare for mid-July before it disappears! Can't afford Drake's View, but I have my eye on another mountain view villa...
