Perfectly situated vacation rental for two

Well built, nicely furnished vacation home. Very exciting drive up the hills to arrive here. Fitz built this place, and it is very well done. Yes, he lives upstairs; however, you won't know it between the insulated walls and ceiling and his own busy schedule. In addition, he was very helpful in guiding us to destinations for beach play, snorkeling, and dining. This very comfortable, clean home is well situated on the hill for a breeze to blow through; for lounging in the hammock; playing cards or reading on the deck, and more. Yes, those photos are exactly what you see when you are there! We used the backpack chairs to carry our gear from the Jeep to the beach. St. John (and all the VI) are pro-eco communities that catch rain and filter it. We have stayed on other islands and the water was not palatable; however, the water at Slice of Life was great tasting. It is encouraged, island wide, to conserve water by minimal flushing and brief showering, and to keep the septic safe by not flushing paper. We were happy to help! St. John is not a party island, and the residents (and guests) usually follow the sun with activity. You will be serenaded by multitudes of birds (yes, some roosters, too), the bray of donkeys, the call of goats and sheep, and will likely see the deer that walk up the driveway each morning. As a very light sleeper, I was worried about staying awake, but the bed is so comfortable, and the activites are so fun, that I fell asleep quickly each night. We will be returning to Slice of Life! Between the great accomodations and the excellent host, it is at the top of our VRBO experiences! Thanks Fitz!!
