Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this condo. It's in a perfect location to enjoy the island. You really must rent a car though. Otherwise you will waste so much time waiting on safaris or taxis. We spent every evening in Red Hook. Only a 2 minute drive home. The pool is very close and it's perfect to cool off in. Close to Coki Beach, Magen's Bay and Secret Harbour, which are my favorite beaches. Easy to jump on ferry to St John. Stocked with all the necessary supplies.

Clean, quiet and close to great beaches

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very nice. Close to Red Hook, Coki Beach (great dive shop here), and Magen's Bay. Furnishings were comfortable. Felt like home away from home. Got a chance to talk to the owner. Though I was in a panicked state with a late arrival and got lost, she was able to help me figure things out.

Recommendations for future travelers

. When the owners send the welcome email, make sure you find it. Mine was in the spam folder and made for an anxious arrival.

. Make sure you have a paper map of the island (you cannot buy one

there). Cell service is at best 2G (so google maps didn't always

work for me) and street markings are not what you are used to. (I

realize there are only two or three roads on the island, but it can get

confusing with the twists and turns).

. You don't really need a car. At times I was glad to have one, at others, I didn't really need it. The paradise buses run frequently. As long as you can plan your outings, it should work.

. Food in general is a little more expensive, but Cruzan Bay rum is cheaper, so it balances out. :)

. 'Attractions' tend to close early (4 pm), so go early then relax on the beach afterwards.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with Homeaway and it was great. Amy and Howard's apartment is perfect for some beach time, snorkeling and visit Red Hook. Everything was as described and the information "package" they left us was very detailed and accurate. I highly recommend them. We surely come back.

Great and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad that we chose this place to stay. My friend and I didn't want anything too "touristy". If that's what you're looking for go here. We met a lot of local who we sweet and kind. The condo is so homey and spacious. It's not that far from sapphire beach and you are right in between most of the attractions. Howie was very nice and gave us a list of places to venture! Thank you for the perfect stay and vacation.

Would go back again to this rental

  • 4 of 5

The place was clean. Easy to get to from the airport with our rental ( which we barely used). It had snorkel gear in the rental that we used, which was very nice. The large blow up floats were not holding air that well, but we got lil new ones at the corner store and left them for the next people. The location is great to the ferry ( lot parking is cheap there), the view of the marina off the balcony is perfect, and the few minute walk to the beach is fine. The only thing we didnt know was we needed tokens for the laundry ( we went to clean the beach towels at the end of the week before we left after using them the whole stay) and you can only get tokens when the office is open-not in the laundry room...if thats the only thing to complain about .... :)))) thanks for the nice stay, we would definitely consider the place again in the future.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have been happier with a accommodations. The place was perfect. My older brother snagged the place a few days before our arrival. The condo was spacious, clean and comfortable. I was a little apprehensive renting from homeaway, but was glad my brother took the chance. We usually get a hotel on the beach. This was much better than staying in a hotel. The owners beach recommendations were excellent. We took the Nightwind sailboat out of Sapphire marina and had a blast. My brother grabbed the bedroom and I had the futon in the living room. I couldn't believe how comfortable the futon was to sleep on. I'm getting one for my guest room. I was really surprised how many restaurants and bars there were super close to the condo. I thought it was going to be dead once the sun went down. I'm definitely coming back
