first time trip to st johns with little ones.

we would like to take a family trip to st johns over Easter Brake (Sunday to Sunday). We have 3 kids 2,7,9. we are looking for a nice beach, but we really dont want to spend alot of money on resorts. A nice cottage on the Beach would be wonderful Can anyone help me with this quest? We would like to go out to eat at dinner but I can cook lunches and AM food.A nice tiki bar would be a bonus.! anyone have ideas?

There are very few options for beachfront on St John (no "s") as so much of the land is under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service. What few accommodations there are, are very expensive. No beach cottages and tiki bars. You could take a look at the Cinnamon Bay campgrounds for a rustic experience!

If you're on a budget, St John is probably not the place for you and you might find St Thomas to be a better option. You could take a look on www.vrbo.com for condo units at Sapphire where you can be right on a beautiful beach and just a short drive away from the Red Hook ferry terminal from where you can take a day trip to St John. Wherever you stay in the USVI you'll need to budget a rental car. Taxis charge per person and the shortest trip is $5 pp.

Thank you we will keep looking. Money really isnt the issue. We dont want to soend money on frufru things. Because we plan on being on the beach 75% of the time with our little ones. sapphire looks good.

Agree with STT Resident. You might also look at the Buccaneer in St Croix. It is a very nice resort, on the beach and it has a lot of programs for kids.

Gibney Cottages. Right on the beach but no pool. A lot of families with young children really enjoy The Westin. Although it is a man made beach everyone still enjoys it. And the kids love the pool. You could take a quick cab to Trunk Bay. Anywhere you end up (STT ot STJ) will be awesome.
