As a yacht designer married to a yacht dealer, I have sailed most of the Caribbean. St John is by far the best place to live and vacation. If it isn't first in some particular category, it is surely 2nd or 3rd. I have my home, Callaloo, mid island on St John, and I keep my boat in Coral Bay. This villa has been a permanent residence until now. This year it was completely refurbished, and I'm offering it below market to jump-start the vacation rentals.
Before buying in St. John, I considered settling on St. Barths. I weighed the pros and cons of each place. St. Barths offers a bit of Paris (a place I adore), but St. John offered a lot more of everything else. Dependable, affordable phone and internet service, 22 beaches, good dining (although pricey), affordable air fares, hiking trails, and the heavy hand of the US Government which keeps St. John safe, beautiful, and accessible to all. We respect nature, wildlife, beaches, reefs, and the sea. We adore our wild donkeys!
