About the location: Great close in location close enough and far enough to Cruz Bay. We are a family of 4 with 10 and 12 years old girls. It's a 15 minutes walk to Cruz Bay. From the Saint John Visitor Center to Salamon Beach is a 20 minutes walk on the trail, another 8 minutes to Honeymoon Beach, another 10 minutes to Caneel resort. You can buy drinks/chips at Honeymoon beach and foods at Caneel resort. Due to the steep hill, walking back is harder but you get used to it the second time. 7 minutes walk to Candi for great BBQ. Many great restaurants are in town. Cruz Landing has the best Bushwacker and happy hour appetizers. We stayed late in town to enjoy the music and the festivities.
Because of the location, we do not need to rent a jeep. We took Taxi to Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay.
About the property: Great little place. Clean with all the things you ever need. We traveled twice a year and always used VRBO but this is the first place that we feel like we have every thing we need. Feel like home actually.
About the hosts: Don't know what else to say except they are the best with great communication during the booking. You always feel the hosts are close enough and available if you need anything and yet far enough to give you the time to enjoy your vacation. The Drive around the island and the trip to the market weres an unexpected bonus.
