Management response:

I'm so glad you enjoyed the tropical oil paintings throughout the unit. Most of them are done by a local artist, Nancy Byrnes. I really feel that they capture the feel of the island from the grazing goats to the swaying palm trees.

Coming in the front door and looking through the condo and out to the lawn and ocean is magical. So glad we stayed on St John first and...

Management response:

I have to agree that the view is magical, Glad you could put our library of movies and our sports equipment to good use. Thanks for writing.
