family of four on a budget

We are looking at a visit to St. John the first week of January. We have two girls, 5 and 8. Tips on places to stay, ways to prepare and ways to stay within our budget would be greatly appreciated. Also, all this talk of bugs is a little concerning....any advice? Thanks for your time.

Starlit Escape is a great family villa on St. John, with family-level prices, private pool and all the amenities you would need. Just google Starlit Escape to find it.

The no-seeums multiplied after the rains in the fall; they're back down to normal levels now. It's always a good idea to take some deet-based repellent along with you to the beach, just in case!

If you want something affordable look into the Cinnamon Bay campground. They do not consist of much but it is an experience you and your kids will never forget. It also has one of the nicest beaches and it is practically in your front yard. If you are not in too the great outdoors consider staying somewhere else. Maho Bay also has cabins that I think are affordable.
