My Wife and I stayed at the Tropical Breeze May 26 - June 2, 2014. Having been to St. John before, I knew that being in a location with a view of the sunset and a short walk to town was essential in our decision on where to stay. Tropical Breeze gave us a fabulous, un obstructed view of the sunsets that we took photos of each evening. Then as the night falls you have the twinkling lights of St. Thomas in the distance. The deck is huge and without a cover that would obstruct a view. The condo is located on the third floor, however, don't let that point discourage you from choosing this place. The stairs are easy to climb as they are not steep and have landings. You essentially are in "The Penthouse".

Each night after the sunset, we could sit out on the balcony / deck and listen to various styles of music that changed each night, coming from the Beach Bar down the hill. Everything from smooth-jazz, steel drum band and old time rock and roll, could be heard depending on the night.

Sandy the owner was truly a blessing to us, as he sent great correspondence to us giving the best advice on what to expect. However, we never did connect with Doug the property manager, which was okay, considering we arrived after hours and he had the place unlocked, the lights on and the ceiling fans running with the window all open. Thanks Doug!

Beach towels, dishes, cooler beach chairs and everything else needed to have a seamless vacation was provided by Tropical Breeze. Recommendations: We rented a Jeep at the St. Thomas airport and to a car ferry from Red Hook Bay to Cruz Bay on St. John. The other thing, as soon as you get there, go to the Star Fish Market and grocery shop. The liquor store is directly across from the super market. Don't forget to pick up your pineapple juice and Mount Gay Eclipse rum for delicious island beach drink! Two places to go for a great meal are Sam & Jack's Deli, located on the third floor of the Star Fish Market and De' Coal Pot (which was kind of hard to find but definitely worth the hunt). Both are highly rated in Trip Advisor.

Can't hardly wait to return to Tropical Breeze. Thank you Sandy for sharing your slice of paradise with us on our second honeymoon.

Paul and Holly

Stayed at Panacea at Battery Hill to celebrate some milestones at the end of May. The owner could not have been nicer. As we were somewhat uncertain as to whether or not we'd be able to make the trip, he amended is cancellation policy for us. The location was unbeatable-an easy walk into town. However, I will say the return UP the hill every night was a challenge! The unit was spotless, had plenty of towels, beach chairs and a cooler were supplied, and the dipping pool crystal clear. Every morning we enjoyed breakfast on the deck with a beautiful view, the company of the iguanas in the trees, the lovely flowers, and the beautiful birds. Furnishings were comfortable and plentiful. Cimmaron Property Management, who manages the property, was helpful and very easy to deal with. I would highly recommend staying here.

We recently spent a great week at Sea Grape. Prior to the trip, the owner was extremely patient and helpful answering our questions. We felt completely at home as soon as we walked in. The view and location are outstanding! I can't think of anything that we needed that wasn't already stocked at Sea Grape. We would definitely stay there again!

We stayed on the top floor of Battery Hill condo's for vacation week. It was very nice, clean, just like the pictures. The beds were not very comfortable, and the upstairs bathroom needs a shade, but the deck/view are spectacular.
Doug, the property manager, suggested we eat at P & P restaurant, owned by his cousin. IGNORE this advice, This place was a total rip-off and gave me a negative view of the accommodations as a result. I don;t mind expensive dinner, this place just sucked (and cost $200 for 4 of us with tip).
The condo's are great if you know about the music coming up from the Beach Bar and want to live in more natural breeze, less A/C.

The queen sized bed is very comfortable and the air conditioner is excellent. The condo is well appointed and designed. The view from the deck is unbelievable. The couches and chairs are comfy. Only negative is the loud live music playing from downhill from 9-12:00 pm every night. When the band is good, it's fun. When they're not, is a grind. It's loud in the living area, but the sleeping area is very quiet with the a/c on. There is also a lot of noise from guests walking up and downstairs having loud conversations. The breeze from the bay is steady so the condo is always comfortable.

We stayed in Rainbows End Oct 5-12 2013. This condo was the best place I've stayed in. The views and whole property of Battery Hill is amazing. I've stayed all around Cruz Bay area and this was the best place. We had great communications with the owner and management company from the time of booking until the time we left. I give praise to the management company on the day we locked our keys in the condo. We contacted Cimarron and they had a guy out within 20 minutes. (That's fast for Island time). The condo was very clean upon arrival. The pool was perfect for cocktails and listening to live music from the Beach Bar after a day exploring and beach bumming. The view from the pool looking out onto Cruz Bay was awesome. We cook a lot of our meals in while on St. John, and the kitchen and BBQ grill was perfect. Rainbows End is very convenient to Cruz Bay with just a short stroll down the hill. Being on top of the hill, we never needed the a/c until bed time. We will definitely be back to Rainbows End.

This was our first time visiting St. John. The whole island is paradise! Rainbows End has wonderful views, convenient to town with cute shops and restaurants. Great private deck, with a great view! Cable, wi-fi, cooler and beach chairs, what more could you want? We spent four hours a day at the beaches. Our favorite beach was Maho and Trunk Bay. Rent a Jeep because the entire island is beautiful and you don't want to miss seeing anything.

Room Tip: Choose Rainbows End you can't go wrong.
