First of all, let’s be clear this is not a hotel. Nor is it a resort in the way many of us might think about a resort...there is a small pool, not on a beach, no food amenities, no spa, etc. You make your own bed, you make (and have to go to a food market to buy) your own

My husband and I needed a last minute place to stay for 6 days, due to leaving an Airbnb villa. When I walked in, everyone was so polite and happy at the front desk. I talked to Dawn and she immediately found one of her units that was available. Dawn gave up her parking spot

Cruz Bay is the go to stay and play in St John. Grand Bay is clean, professional worth $400/500 a night. Virgin Bistro great restaurant to eat at. I think Zo Zo’s was destroyed with Hurricane Irma but that was great when we stayed back in 2016

If I were just reviewing the resort manager Rachelle, this would be a 5-star review. She is full of energy and in good spirits. She has a genuine concern for her guests and wants to make their stay a good one. Pros: Everything you need to make your stay easy. We did not lack

My wife and I stayed here for 8 days while visiting our daughter and son-in-law. It was perfect. Only a 5 minute walk from the ferry (4 minutes from my daughter’s shop the Turquoise Turtle), and right across the street from Cruz Bay. All restaurants and charter boat pickups are

What is the cheapest way from airport to hotel
Taxi from STT airport to ferry at Redhook. 45-60 minute taxi ride, for a 15 minute ferry crossing. Ferry rates are $6 per adult one way- each bag is $2.50 ( luggage). Ferry runs every hour on the hour. Hotel is within blocks from the ferry dock- short walk or probably a cheap taxi ride if you’re not renting a vehicle. Most expensive part is the taxi ride from STT airport to Redhook, to get on the ferry to Cruz Bay, STJ. There is a ferry in Charlotte Amalie, closer to the airport, but it’s schedule varies and that crossing is 45 minutes.

Hi, Im wondering if the resort has a BBQ on site for guests to use?thx debbie
Every condo has a balcony & every balcony has a grill (electric for safety) I presume. A fun, laid back night........very reasonable is take-out from "Uncle Joe's Barbecue". Located just up from Longboard's. Follow the smell!! Don't overlook the grilled ribeye from Banana Deck, across the street from "the Beach Bar"...my fav.

Considering a three year old and a bad knee &.....long flight, taxi rides, ferry rides, street/sidewalk conditions, steps, no baby pool, and overall......save for a special vacation for you and your husband only. Look more towards southern Fl. with a room ground level that allows one to access beach from your room. Just saying.....from a 64 year old looking back!!! For sure, don't give up the Grande Bay idea. We go every year and it is our fav! Please get back with more enquiries for more questions.
