We are thinking of going to St. John in March, maybe April of 07. We have been to Maui for 5 years in a row and the flight from WI is just a killer! Although everyone has told us there is no place like Hawaii.. we'd like to try somewhere else. Eveyone seems to like St. John the best of all the USVI. We like Maui over the other Hawaiian Islands because it is still quiet, but you can go into Lahaina at night for a few bars, a little music and some local shopping. We usually asks the locals where to eat and have found some great out of the way places! Also, like that people don't hassle you to buy stuff like Jamacia, and that you can drink the water! My husband is an avid snorkeler so great snorkeling is a must! We have rented from a private owner in Mauii and it has worked out great! We would be traveling with 4 adults, 2 of whom are police officers. Having a family member who rents her luxury condo in Maryland, I understand and have had to fix what can happen from unscrupulous renters! No worries here! Does anyone have any suggestions of where to stay or somewhere they have stayed that is nice. Looking around $2500 a week tops. Thanks for the help!
