We came to stay at Gallows Point by chance, having booked what was supposed to be a cottage elsewhere on the island, which, instead, turned out to be a cinder block structure with no view, amenities, no charm whatsoever. We didn't event put our bags down but immediately got on the phone to find other accommodations. It was a holiday week and we were extremely lucky to book Gallows for several days at the end of our planned vacation. (We managed to get a room at the Weston for the first half.). Gallows had a spectacular duplex unit with a vaulted ceiling, loft bedroom, full kitchen, large balcony and stunning views. We were in heaven! We have returned every year since. Gallows Point is a five minute walk from the one cluster of restaurants on the island and the ferry landing. The staff are wonderful. Many have been there for years and years. It is the perfect base from which to explore the island. (We snorkel every day at a different spot - gorgeous and varied.) When the day is done, you get to park the car, jump in the gallows Point pool or take another snorkel off their (tiny) beach) and then freshen up and walk to dinner with no need to skip that second or third glass of wine -- you're not driving. For us, St. John is the perfect easy winter escape and Gallows Point has the perfect combination of location, casual, but beautiful accommodations, gorgeous views, and a very welcoming staff. We've already put our deposit down for next year.
