Hey there, we are planning a trip to St John in early July. Going with another couple, we are all in mid 30's. This is what we want, 2 bedroom Villa that is nice, meaning pictures are what you get. I prefer a newer villa with nice appliciances, pool, etc. The list is narrowed down to 3, thought some of you could help me decide or throw a new one in the mix. Location is somewhat important, we are a bit concerned about the having to drive to a beach, but I know it will be fine. We will be renting a car. Also, we are really trying to stay in the budget of $3,000 to $3,500 max, for a week in a villa.
Can someone give me tips of pricing for groceries, restaurants, etc. We want to cook at the villa but maybe go to dinner or something in town a couple of nites. I know this is a silly question but how much spending money should we bring for a week? My husband might do a fishing trip, but what other day activities cost? Are restaurants expensive? Is there any bars in the town?
1-My first pick, which I'm leaning to is Bongo Bongo. I have read the reviews and everything is great, it's new, not too too far from Cruz Bay.
2- Reef Madness - I like this one but it looks far, on the other side of the island. Is there anything close by like a town to get groceries, etc?
3- Orchid Hill Villa- Doesn't look too bad and close to Cruz Bay
