My significant other and I will be on St John for 8 days mid May. It's our first time, so we're still a little unsure where to stay.
We've been thinking of staying 3 or 4 nights in Cruz Bay to get familiar with everything and then head over to Coral Bay for another 4 or 5 nights. When in Cruz Bay we thought about staying close to the center so we don't have to rent a car. We hope to go on day trips to other islands or on a sailing trip. When going to Coral Bay we'd obviously rent a car.
Does this make sense? Would it be better to just stay in Coral Bay? We've had trouble finding a good villa in Cruz Bay which is in walkable distance to the center. We're aiming for between $150-$180 per night. Any ideas for the period of 05/17-05/20 or 21?
In Coral Bay we're thinking about Paper Moon, New Moon or the Coconut Hill Villa (with the amazing 60 mile views). Any other ideas there?
Generally we plan to go snorkeling, swimming and hiking on the island, but also want to do day trips.
Hope somebody can give us some recommendations :)
