30+years resident. Came here to go diving and never left. This is my home and don't plan to live anywhere else. Originally from Tennessee.

Always loved to go to the beach. Living here I have best of both worlds. Love to grow things I can eat so a garden is one of my passions besides the ocean.

Built house in 2007.

Cynthia Smith purchased this apartment in 2007

Centrally located here to town or Coral Bay.

It's always cool here. Quiet safe and clean.

Spend less money on accommodation's and have money for Sailing trips and dining out.

Sweet cottage in a residential neighborhood.
Cynthia is a great host. This is perfect for a single or couple. You should rent a car if you are staying here. Great value!

TRIP OF A LIFE TIME

  • 5 of 5
Cynthia was a pleasure to work with. From the very beginning she was helpful and informative. The accommodations are exactly as pictured. The kitchen is small but has dishes for you. I recommend this place for a couple or for only two people. More people than that and it will be crowded. The porch is awesome to have coffee on in the morning and watch the geckos jump around on the screens. The cooler, chairs, and snorkel gear she provided was a life saver and we really appreciated it. You will need to rent a jeep to get around the island, down her road, and into her driveway. You should probably do this any ways to explore the island! Eden Lounge is in the middle of the jungle so there are jungle noises- but you will get used to it! Because she is willing to provide budget accommodations in a wonderful setting we got to have an authentic Caribbean experience and have a trip of a life time. Thank you Cynthia!!

CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, AFFORDABLE

  • 4 of 5
Eden Lounge provides a very affordable option to St. John's mostly upper crust accommodations. It is a newer property (2006) and so is in very good condition. Cynthia was attentive to our needs, provided excellent recommendations for activities and restaurants and a good source of general island info, having been a long-time resident. Though there are other houses close by, we never really saw or heard from them for the most part. Mostly, it felt like we were living in the jungle. This is a property for a single or couple only. We would definitely recommend it for those on a modest budget like us to be able to fully enjoy everything St. John has to offer. Must rent a vehicle!

SIMPLE, PLEASANT, AFFORDABLE

  • 3 of 5
Cynthia was very accommodating, even met us at the ferry upon arrival to make sure we got to her place OK in the dark. If you are looking for an ocean/beach view, this is not the place for you. However, it did the trick for us, allowing us a pleasant, affordable place to stay while spending our days exploring the islands. Our daughter even made a new friend, the gecko that visited us daily on the porch (no worries, outside the apartment.) Amenities are basic and limited. Based on the location of the apartment, you are in the middle of the forest and there are a lot of night sounds. If you are budget conscious and looking for a simple place to stay, this is for you. Even if unsure, it's worth contacting Cynthia to learn more.

ENJOYABLE STAY IN A BEAUTIFUL PLACE.

  • 4 of 5
Eden's Lounge was exactly what we bargained for. We could have not found a better place for the price. Krista, Cynthia's daughter, was great and extremely accomadating to our needs. The grounds around the condo are clean and well kept. Bear in mind, this condo is not a resort, it has the essentials.

BUDGET APARTMENT

  • 2 of 5
If you are looking for one of the least expensive accommodations on the island then this apartment might work for you. However, just remember that you get what you pay for. The highlights of this rental are the beautiful grounds that surround the property. The flowers, fruit trees and overall landscape is well maintained and creates a serene environment. Another highlight would be the new king size bed and air conditioner. There is also a new flat screen TV with cable, which is great if you are traveling with kids. On the flip side, there are some drawbacks to consider as well. For instance, being that the property owner lives right above the rental there is not much privacy. Blinds or roll up shades could easily solve this problem. Moreover, the property could use some maintenance. The screened in living room needs to be repaired, which would greatly help the insect problem. Another downside was the lack of a dresser or clean place to store clothing. There is a small utility room with a hanging shoe caddy and some hangers, however, the room was unorganized with a musky odor. Keeping the price in mind, we overall enjoyed our stay at Eden Lounge. This property has a lot of potential and would function much better with some maintenance and storage solutions. I would recommend this rental for a couple or small family on a very tight budget. The property is centrally located and only minutes from St. John's beautiful beaches and restaurants. However, if you are planning on a longer stay you may want to consider the pro and cons of budget accommodations.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your constructive remarks. Took a couple days to clean and repair screen door. When guests are here I try very hard to give guests privacy. Never had anyone complain about it. I will work on making future guests happy. Thanks again.
