This was our first time on St. John, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but Creolla was perfect for our needs. Our greeter was very helpful and gave us just the right amount of information without giving too much. The house was very clean. We wanted a quiet place and didn't want much in the way of night life, and Creolla fit the bill. We really enjoyed the Coral Bay side of the island, away from the busier Cruz Bay side. We had a spectacular view of the bay from the deck and gazebo, where we ate most of our meals. The other added benefit of being high up on the mountainside was the cooler temps and nice breeze. We felt like we were on top of the island, yet some of the best beaches were only 10 minutes away. The island's best smoothie stand is right at the base of the access road - who could ask for anything more? Service from the property managers was prompt. When the hot tub pump wouldn't turn off due to a broken switch, someone came right away to address it. We hope to go back to St. John next year, and will definitely want to stay at Creolla.
