Not a Care in the World!

What a wonderful vacation I had at Meritage! The views are spectacular off the wide verandas which are furnished with comfy wicker chairs. I never tired of seeing the views of Hart Bay, Chocolate Hole and St Thomas in the early morning light or in the light of the amazing sunsets! The night skies are a stargazer's delight! My favorite way to enjoy the views was from the deck pool. What luxury to cool off in the pool overlooking Hart Bay! The sounds of the rolling waves quickly lull you into a relaxed state. A rum punch from the living room bar can help with that too!
All the tastefully decorated rooms are clean and comfortable with private bathrooms and if you don't want to use the air conditioning, the quiet ceiling fans cool the air nicely. Although we spent most of week out and about beach hopping and in the nearby town of Cruz Bay, it was just as lovely to spend a day at Meritage, walking the trials and lazing in the hammock with a good book. Cooking and dining at the villa was easy with a workable kitchen and ample dining area.
I have such great memories of my stay at Meritage and the island - from being greeted by Sinbad the manager, a colorful island character who regaled us with much humor and conviviality, to learning how to snorkel and seeing such incredible ocean life. The bad news is that the week flew by too fast, the good news is that I am so relaxed after staying at Meritage on St John that I have not a care in the world! Wish I could bottle this feeling!

We are glad to hear you had such a wonderful time at Meritage Great House and on St.John. Our wish is to make all our quest feel like it is their second home, away from home, in the Islands. Hope you come back to join us soon.
