St John is a fantastic vacation spot if you like island escape with acitivities such as hiking, snorkeling, or just sun bathing on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world! Astral Ridge provided us a wonderful space to start our island vacation. After the roughly 30 minute drive (it may be quicker once you get used to the roads...be very careful if this is your first trip), we made it to Coral Bay from Cruz Bay. Coral Bay is a charming town with a few shops and great local restaurants. We met with Bob, who manages the property. He made sure we had everything we needed upon arrival. The managers of this property are fantastic and will make sure you have the best possible experience. The rough, steep road heading to the driveway was a little overwhelimg at first. But the chickens, goats, donkeys, or deer you may see on the way up is quite entertaining (just be careful at night). You have to work to get the the villa, but it is totally worth it! The first view from the villa is absolutely breathtaking. The pictures don't give the view it deserves, you must see for yourself. The villa is beautiful, quite, and absolutely peaceful. Keep in mind that most shops and restaurants are in Cruz Bay, so it's a drive to get there. But the island is small and Coral Bay is close to the main hiking trails and beaches. We were very fortunate to find Atral Ridge, and I'm glad we did! This vacation was one to Remember. Thank you Brian and Bob for taking care of us!!
