Considering you can pay more than double at the Westin around the bay without even so much as a view of the sea at the opening rate, this is a true gem. Who needs daily maid service and a sleep number bed if you can have an oceanfront studio with fridge, etc and a great porch... so close to the water you can wink at the fish. The crashing waves on the beach at night are the most soothing sound EVER. Even better, the recommendations that Frank gave us for our day trips were spot on and made our weekend pefect. We have been to St John before, and Franks recommendations made this by far our best trip. I almost didn't want to write this review so I could keep this place a secret.
The only real thing to do on site is lounge on the porch and read and listen to the ocean sounds - the beach is rocky, but the location is perfectly placed so you can walk into town for drinks and dinner and slither home to bed after many fruity cocktails.
Save the money you would spend on Caneel or Westin and definitely rent a jeep and get out and about and SEE this glorious island and stay at Coconut Coast! Don't just sit at a resort on the beach. You can go to cheaper islands like a Jamaican all-inclusive if that is all you want to do. In St John you want to hike, snorkel, dive and eat at great local restaurants.
