getting around St. John

We are planning a honeymoon trip to St. John this summer and are trying to figure out which area to rent a villa in. We are interesting in checking out the park and the north shore beaches and would like to eat out for most dinners. Does anyone have recommendations on areas or specific villas? Any estimations on how long it takes to drive between places in a rental car? Thank you!

We stayed at The Gatehouse in Peter Bay and it was incredible! The killer view looks right over Cinnamon Bay on the North shore. Perfect honeymoon spot for the $$ thru destinationstjohn.com

The north shore road takes you straight to the house- about 15 beautiful minutes away from Cruz Bay.

You will love this side of the island within the national park. I think if you click on my forum name there is a review from our October trip.

Good luck & congrats on your upcomming marriage and choosing St. John for a magical honeymoon trip! They don't call it Love City for nothin' ~~~~~~

If you want to be close to a large number of restaurants, stay closer to Cruz Bay. We stayed in Coral Bay in January, and absolutely loved the laid back life. There are several here, it's just not as "lively" as the Cruz Bay area. Driving from one end of the island to the other, although it's only a few miles long, can take you 30-45 minutes because of all of the curves and hills. The North Shore is a gorgeous drive, and I think we would always stay in the Coral Bay area. Hangin' with the locals was the highlight of our trip! You'll love it, no matter where you decide.
