Looking at the pictures, we could only hope that The Cottage would be as romantic in reality as it appeared online. Following a long, long day travelling by air from Wisconson, we arrived at our destination. At first sight, we knew we made the right decision. For two of us, this place was perfect....views of the harbor from every window, a crystral clear pool outside the door/window that no one used, and a kitchenette to brew coffee and make breakfast made it ideal.

Town was a short walk downhill. Nice if you're heading out for happy hour or dinner; the trip back is uphill but not bad if you take your time and watch the stars. Loved being able to walk into Cruz Bay. The trail to Salomon Bay and Honeymoon Bay is easy if you wear walking shoes. Rent a jeep; it's worth the $60-$70/day to see the other beaches on the island.

All restaraunts are great! Just pick your atmosphere. Get out and explore. Have a Bushwacker at the Beach Bar. Walk the Reef Bay Trail. Have a burger at Skinny Legs in Coral Bay. Enjoy St. John and the people. Of all the places we've visited in the Caribbbean, we'lll come here again.

You could just sit on the veranda all day (and night) and take in the great views of the bay and the harbor. But then you'd miss the incredible beaches close by. This is really a great place.

Stayed week of 15 May. The location was perfect. Great view and cool breeze. Never had to use AC. The condo has everything you need. Stayed in Palm Breezes. The only negative was the noise of the construction below but they can't do anything about that and if you're out at the beach during the day it's not a problem. We didn't have a bad meal. ZoZo's at Gallow's Point was wonderful, highly recommend. The Fish Trap was the only disappointment, it was overrated.

Lovely place, could not ask for more comfortable surroundings. Great view of Cruz Bay. Clean and well stocked kitchen. The pool and grounds were well-manicured and lovely. Would highly recommend this property.

P.S. Please note that there is a large condominum complex being built below Battery Hill and there is construction noise at this time.

The property is very lovely with nice views of the Cruz Bay, small pool, clean units but there is a new resort going up right next door and I mean right next door. They are using jackhammers from 8:30am until approx. 4pm every day, but Sunday. Large machinery is in place as they have just began. If you are in the East Bldg. the side next to the construction is unbearable, next to the pool is a little better. Also, if you have a unit with no air in the living room you must leave your doors open during the day and the noice is awful. Location is good because you may walk to town, but think twice for the $$ you can be someplace else.

I've stayed at Battery Hill on 2 of my 3 stays on St. John and will be returning for a 3rd stay this summer. It has a great location close to town so you can walk to dinner and not have to attempt parking in Cruz Bay. I've stayed in two different units, B1 - Panacea is the best. It is well appointed, has a wonderful porch to relax in after a day of snorkeling on the most beautiful beaches in the world. My other stay was at the Westin, which was OK, but not for me, too crowded. I will always return to Battery Hill in the future.

What a place. Excellent location (walk to Cruz Bay)and the property was in top notch condition. Beautiful views, night & day and a great pool & deck overlooking the harbor. Everything you can imagine was in the condo, from a blender for those all important drinks to a cigar cutter.
Highly recommend and we will probably being staying there again this year.
