We stayed at Little Lagoon for 2 weeks on our first visit to St John - 2 adults and a 4 year old. The day we left I was ready to come back to the island and back to stay with Donna and Ernest. They provided excellent instructions for getting from Cruz Bay over to Coral Bay to the Coccoloba shops where Ernest met us and had us follow him to the house. If this is place is actually 100 yards from the beach, I'd be surprised. The water (and some chairs and great snorkeling) are SO, SO close. We rented L.L North because South was already booked. I'd forgotten that only South has air conditioning in the bedroom and so when we arrived was afraid that 2 weeks without AC at night would be torturous. But it was not. We were there in February/March and there was always a breeze. That plus plenty of fans kept us comfortable at night, and we were barely there during the day. For the 3 of us, North was fine. I think next time we'd still like to get South, but if you're just one or two people or three who are not staying a long time, North is fine. Don't plan to do major cooking with this kitchenette (no counter/prep space) but breakfast basics or a simple supper are possible. Plus you can't beat the price, if budget is a huge concern. We were basically comfortable with the the 3 of us in North, but with 3 of us, all of our stuff for 2 weeks, and using the couch for a bed, seating, dining...next time we'll stay in South. That said, the apartment was immaculate, they left us a beautiful vase of fresh flowers from the property, were super helpful and informative and I just can't say enough how great a place this was to stay. Donna and Ernest are so kind -if we lived there I'd want to be friends and hang out with them. We really liked having that little beach right there, but also being close to the other east and south beaches. The north/west beaches are more "crowded" but even that is a stretch. You'll find just about everything you need (except a gas station!) in Coral Bay. We grocery shopped there, bought gifts there, ate there and were in Cruz Bay only to arrive and depart. It's definitely the quiet side of the island, so be aware of that, but you almost feel like a native! Our son enjoyed the swings, Ernest lent us a boogie board, they often came out when we got back in the evening to see where we'd been or to make recommendations. It was a wonderful vacation. I'm ready to return. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
