“Amazing accommodations, fantastic staff, gorgeous views...can't say enough great things”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Our group was 3 married couples, early 30's. We stayed in the 3BR condo on the 3rd floor.

Upon our arrival to St. John's via the Red Hook ferry, Delbert was waiting in the Sea Shore Allure truck to pick us up and drive us to the condo - just a few minutes' drive. You are within a 5-10 minute walk to Cruz Bay where all the restaurants, bars, and shopping are best.

Each of the 3BRs had its own en suite bathroom. All beds were kings, great linens. All bathrooms were unique and beautifully constructed - stone walls, a grotto style shower, and plenty of well-lighted counter space.

The views from the living room and 2 of the bedrooms were overlooking the seaside pool/whirlpool and the ocean. The beach there is nice to check out, but not a place to lay out or walk really - sea urchins along the shoreline, too, so you can't get in the water past your toes. With that being said, you can hear the waves lapping on the shore from the condo balconies, which is key, in my opinion.

The kitchen was so well-stocked with quality appliances, equipment, entertaining serving pieces....there was nothing we needed that we couldn't find.

We used the beach towels, beach chairs and coolers provided each day to go to different beaches - very handy.

The only "downside" to our stay at Sea Shore Allure was the rolling blackout conducted by St. John's on our last morning - the power goes out for a couple of hours. Ours happened on Sunday morning, FYI.

I would give this property my highest rating, and will stay there again when I go back to SJVI. Next time we will rent the Sea Shore Allure boat for a private outing.

First time to visit SJVI. Stayed at Sea Shore Allure based on Trip Advisor reviews. Was not disappointed! One BR condo extremely well appointed - we wanted for nothing! Very comfortable in every sense. Absolutely gorgeous view. Staff very friendly and helpful. Fully stocked laundry facilities on site. Grocery stores within very close proximity. Within 10 minutes walk of ferry dock.

The only 2 negatives about this accommodation is the bedroom windows overlook someone's backyard with trash and messy storage area, so can't open windows and enjoy sound of surf. Also, it's situated on a point at the end of a residential area. There are no street lights, so very dark if out walking after dark. A bit creepy because some of the yards are overgrown with abandoned cars sitting in them, beware of dog signs, etc. We felt safe, but a flashlight advisable if out after dark.

Have been to St. John three times and several other Caribbean islands. This was the best place to stay, and we will return. Shei was very helpful, arranging our Jeep rental, shopping for us so we would have provisions upon arrival, just being all-around responsive. Upon arrival, Delbert met us at Park Service dock and drove us to Sea Shore Allure. Wow, what a gorgeous place! Has everything that you expect in a luxury accommodation. Recommend that you book a trip to BVI on Magnum, V.I., their boat. We did and had a fantastic day with Delbert. Cannot wait to go back!

This was a great place to stay. The condo was super modern, clean and had all the comforts of home. Came equipped with all kitchen supplies (including a fun little food welcome basket:)), TV with cable/DVD player, etc. Our balcony looked over the water, and it was just a short 5 minute walk to all the restaurants and bars in Cruz Bay. The staff is really helpful and will help you book day trips and will coordinate a Jeep rental for you. Overall, great place to stay!

Arrived from St. Thomas on ferry , greeted by Delbert and taken to car rental place , then followed him back to Seashore Allure.... Beautiful!! Given extensive tour of grounds and unit by Delbert, he is super friendly... The 3 BR unit was completely first class, has everything one could possibly need ( ice chests, beach chairs, full kitchen complement... Even laundry detergent, fabric softener , sugar,etc!).Welcome basket with fruit and snacks, just what you need after a long day of travel. Very close to restaurants, grocery. View lovely, beach rocky but we beach hopped every day, not really swim accessible at Seashore. Condo pristine, beyond clean- this place is taken care of as you would your home. Only one issue, not within the control of Seashore Allure--water pressure low, but I think this may be an island -wide issue , just be prepared. Hope to return one day, recommend this place highly!

We stayed for a week with our kids, spouses and grandson and had a great time. By far the best place we have stayed to date! Shei and Delbert went about and beyond. Delbert picked us up at the ferry, dropped off our luggage and took us to the grocery store. They have thought of everything from spices, coolers, beach chairs, ziplock bags, you name it! They left a welcome basket with fruit, chips, coffee and rum. The entire place is absolutely beautiful! We decided to stay another week and had to move to another condo. While the new place was nice, but was nothing compared to Sea Shore and Shei and Delbert's attentiveness!!!

This place is terrific. The units are extremely well designed, like new and maintained in an outstanding fashion. Our unit was the best equipped condo unit I have ever stayed in. They have everything. There was no need to worry about buying paper towels, coffee filters, spices etc etc etc. We were in unit 3 on the ground floor and it had a great view. The service was A+++. We had planned to rent a car at STT and take the ferry over. Hertz let us down but no problem as I called Shea and she had someone pick us up. When there appeared that there were no cars available on the whole island Shea was able to find us a jeep. She also made reservations for a snorkel/cruise which was great. The walk to town is not scenic but it was short. This place is great and represents great value.
