About the best thing I can say about this place was that is was affordable. The grounds were very run down, but our unit was not too bad. It was clean, and was equipped with satellite, flat screen tv's, fully stocked kitchen,etc. a little disappointing that wi-fi was not included, and we had to pay for it. The beach was beautiful, and they did provide snorkeling equipment and chairs available (only until 6 pm, so if you want to sit out on the beach and watch the sunset, be sure and take your own or a towel!). The coral was beautiful, and we saw sea turtles and sting ray in addition to the many species of fish. I thought the office was a little "sketchy", as it was in a unit that didn't have any sign letting you know where it was, and I was somewhat reluctant to give them my credit card, and had to ask them for a receipt to make sure it was charged the amount I had booked it for. One of the reason we booked here was because it was on the Safari route, and we wouldn't have to use a taxi for transportation....however, we failed to realize that in order to get to the pick up route, we had to hike up a huge hill. Needless to say, we ended up calling for taxi services anyway! Location was good, close to Red Hook and the ferry to St. John island, so that was another plus. Overall, not too bad...it could've been a lot worse.
