Our stay at Sunset View Platinum Condo was a pleasant experience. My husband and I were first time visitors to the Caribbean and first time users of a vacation rental. We wanted to stay in Cruz Bay for a taste of the local flair and accessibility to essentials and entertainment. Sunset View perfectly fits the description. For groceries, Dolphin Market is around the corner while the ferry building for island hopping, Mongoose Junction for gift shopping and dining, and the National Park Visitors Center for hiking and beach maps are an easy 8 minute stroll. Many other shops, restaurants, and businesses are just steps away. The condo includes a convenient parking space since parking in town can be difficult during high season. Taxis can take you almost anywhere around St. John, although we chose to rent a car in order to come and go as we please. If renting a vehicle, consider a narrower width to fit between the two poles marking the condo’s parking space.
The studio is comfortably spacious. Sliding shutters separate the sleeping quarters from the living area. We were happy with the amount of closet space for storing our snorkeling gear and luggage, the laundry unit, fully equipped kitchen, newly tiled shower, and comfortable dining and living room. Even better were the air conditioning unit and ceiling fans for the warm evenings. Our hostess and condo owner Rebecca left thoughtful touches such as extra bed linens, beach chairs and small cooler, DVD’s, and plenty of reading for those balmy evenings while viewing the sunset from the balcony. She was easy to reach prior and during our stay and also supplied an extensive list of recommendations for activities, restaurants, and modes of transportation. One of the recommended restaurants, ZoZo’s is very popular. For fine dining and a great sunset view, be sure to make reservations for the bar a week or two in advance during high season. We were too late but found the dining room also allows comfortable viewing, excellent service, and fine Italian cuisine. Many of Rebecca’s other suggestions also satisfied our appetites. We enjoyed our stay at Sunset View for its comfort and convenience and highly recommend it to anyone looking for the same.
