“Especially loved the Beauty Lounge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

Saphia at the Beauty Lounge did my hair and makeup for my wedding and it turned out fantastic! She was very friendly. I was nervous never having met her before and it being my big day, but she exceeded expectations and even tamed my frizz which is not an easy feat in the Caribbean.

The jewelry store near her was nice as well. It had a good price range and I was able to take home a nice necklace.

Downstairs was a deli that made the most delicious smoothies and made a great lunch.

“Cute eclectic indoor/outdoor mall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Wanted to find a place to eat a late lunch and eat indoors with AC. Mongoose Junction was the perfect fit. Found a local who pointed us to a deli with great food and after cooling down and eating lunch we set off in the little tropical garden shopping village. Only a short walk from the ferry

“Interesting little place to shop and eat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Visited 8/5 on anniversary trip. Fascinating architecture with stores and restaurants on multiple levels. Had a bad experience with a cranky clerk at Caravan jewelry, but staff in other stores were pleasant and helpful. Most shops were air conditioned, so it was a nice break from the st. john heat.

“Bamboula is a great stop!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

If you're looking for unique gifts for taking home - this is the spot! This store offers locally made merchandise that isn't found in other stores and the prices aren't bad either.

Enjoyed shops with one of a kind items. Loved Bamboula! and Made In St. John! Also enjoyed listening to live reggae band called Invisions that played at Virgin Fire.
