Destination guide

Estate Johns Folly is a little corner of heaven

Saint John may be the smallest of the Virgin Islands, but don't let that put you off. It hasn't suffered from the rampant overdevelopment found on other Caribbean islands, most probably because more than half of it is made up of protected lands. This has resulted in the perfect environment to kick back and take in views uninterrupted by ugly resorts. If you've bagged an Estate Johns Folly vacation rental in the south-east of the island, you'll be staying around a gorgeous forested bay flanked by warm, shallow Caribbean waters. Though it feels remote, you'll never be far from all the island has to offer.

Things to do

Rum ruins on Estate Johns Folly

If you're itching for a little history, you can drive to the north of the island, where you can amble through the Annaberg Sugar Plantation, once the center of rum production on the island during the 18th century. Afterwards, consider complementing it by swinging by the Elaine Ione Sprauve Library & Museum which houses artifacts and old island photography in a former plantation estate. If you're traveling with kids in tow and they've tired of the beaches, however unlikely, you can drop into Pastory Gardens to practice your putting skills on the 18-hole mini golf course.

Activities

Estate Johns Folly is ideal for beach bums

If you're looking for a quiet retreat, you don't have to look any further than an Estate Johns Folly vacation rental. However, if you tire of being a beach bum, the rest of the island teems with things to do. It's unthinkable to visit Saint John and not spend at least a morning with masks and flippers on, checking out the underwater world. For such a small island, there are some gorgeous wild hiking trails across the protected land. Return to your little oasis and watch the famously dramatic sunset dipping down behind the ocean, preferably accompanied by a little rum sundowner.

Weather

See Estate Johns Folly without the crowds

December to March sees the peak season in Saint John, with vacationers escaping the cold weather back home. While it's true that the weather is glorious around this time – expect bright blue skies and a balmy temperature that hovers around the 80s, with light sea breezes – it's also the most crowded. If you want to avoid the hordes and score a deal on an Estate Johns Folly vacation rental, try to visit between April and June, when the families have all but left and the rainy season has yet to start their tropical downpours.

Natural features

See humpback whales on Estate Johns Folly

Though the island has some colorful critters to spot, the real magic happens in the surrounding seas. When you stay in any Estate Johns Folly vacation rental, you'll be within a stone's throw of the water, with residents including playful sea lions, harmless reef sharks and curious turtles, not to mention a whole gamut of colorful fish and corals. If you visit at the right time, you could be face-to-face with one of the gentle humpback whales who come to raise their calves in the calm waters, or dolphins that leap out of the sea in the boat's wake.
