Still in the process of narrowing down villas and locations in STJ. Thinking for a first visit, the Virgin Grande area may work best for us for its convenience to town, paved roads (based on Jeep Cam videos online) and sunset views.
How does this area compare to staying closer to the North Shore, Chocolate Hole or Bordeaux/Maney Peak area? Concerned about comments I've read that it's not as convenient driving through Cruz Bay to visit the North Shore beaches (which we plan to do a lot of). Is this (or anything else) need to be a concern?
Also, any comments about safety and/or driving conditions in relation to staying in Virgin Grande would be so much appreciated.
Lastly, villas we're considering in that area are: Marbella, Infinity, Rapture, Kalorama and Casa de Sonadores. Any thoughts/comments on those? Any others you'd recommend in that area (or the other areas mentioned)?
Thank you again for your help!
