Everything You Could Ask For and More!

We stayed at the Iguana Inn just two weeks ago, and it was everything I had hoped for and more. The internet representation of this property is realistically represented in the description and photographs. However, photographs alone cannot convey the beauty and ambiance of this lovely home. Nor can they relate the warm hospitality and helpfulness of its owners. This was our first, but not last, visit to St. John, a breathtakingly beautiful island. We were greeted by a lovely woman who gave us the lay of the land, assisted us with getting our rental car, and took us to the house. After a tiring trip, we were greeted with a bottle of local rum and a provisioned refrigerator! Being new to the island we didn't have the hassle of having to "forage" for food the moment we got there. This was such a big bonus for us! This beautiful home has everything you need for your comfort and enjoyment. The open air architecture, beautiful stonework, and tasteful appointments add to the island experience. In particular, you will find very comfortable beds, and fluffy towels. There's plenty of room for family gatherings in the main living area and a large deck with a panoramic view of the islands where you can enjoy the balmy breezes on high. You will find good restaurants, good food, and some nice shops when you aren't at the beautiful beaches snorkeling. The island is lush, green, and very tropical, and believe it or not, no flies!!! There are beautiful birds, and you will find the mongoose and iguanas quite entertaining...all adding to the island experience. The owners were very informative, friendly and answered all of my questions. Additionally, you will definitely require a rental car even though this property is only about 2 miles from town....The location is private but very conveniently located to everything. I highly recommend Varlack car rentals for reliable transportation. Our friends rented a car from another agency and their car broke down!
It's only been about a week since we left St. John, and I'm already longing to return. You can't go wrong with staying at the Iguana Inn!
