“Not for everyone”
Reviewed 8 March 2006

The location is good if you want to walk into town, but the town isn't very nice and doesn't feel very safe. There is no meaningful beach to walk to. This is not a scenic place by any means

We spent a wonderful week in beautiful St. John, staying in Palm Breezes, a penthouse condo with phenomenal views of the turquoise sea, the harbor and the town of Cruz Bay. We enjoyed breakfasts by the pool and cocktails on the balcony, beachcombing during the day and walking into town each evening for dinner at a different restaurant. This unit is well named, as it gets terrific ocean breezes and is fully AC to boot. Palm Breezes is quite family friendly as well, with a large loft bedroom immediately claimed by the four teens we had on the trip, cards and games, and room to spread out. It is decorated in a tropical style that puts you in vacation mode. We highly recommend it.

St. John is one of the best places in the world! I have never been before and did not know what to expect. I stayed at the Battery Hill Panacea, which is a two-bedroom condo up on a hill with views that are breathtaking. The condo has a balcony in which you can see the ferry come to shore with all the boats and excitement down below. The porter was handy if you needed anything in the condo. The pool was quaint with views of the other islands and romantic sunsets. What I thought was a great aspect of the condo was the proximity of its location to all the action down below. I had my own parking space and could walk everywhere. Parking in St. John is nonexistent pretty much. So, you need to be able to leave your car at your vacation spot, so that you can walk to the fun. This condo was perfect for that. I would stay at the Battery Hill Panacea again. Enjoy!

I stayed here last May and I certainly enjoyed every thing about it. Obviously you have to walk to town and walk back if you don’t have transportation. Rent a jeep if you dont want to walk five minutes down a hill and five minutes back up the hill. I felt very safe and never had and predators of any type.... except for the local kitty. The cottage is three feet from the pool and looks as if it were the pool house at some point. I would not rent that condo as someone could accidentally walk in thinking it’s a shower/bath house. Just use common sense that the good lord gave you and have a good time. And a drink for me.

Looking at the pictures, we could only hope that The Cottage would be as romantic in reality as it appeared online. Following a long, long day travelling by air from Wisconson, we arrived at our destination. At first sight, we knew we made the right decision. For two of us, this place was perfect....views of the harbor from every window, a crystral clear pool outside the door/window that no one used, and a kitchenette to brew coffee and make breakfast made it ideal.

Town was a short walk downhill. Nice if you're heading out for happy hour or dinner; the trip back is uphill but not bad if you take your time and watch the stars. Loved being able to walk into Cruz Bay. The trail to Salomon Bay and Honeymoon Bay is easy if you wear walking shoes. Rent a jeep; it's worth the $60-$70/day to see the other beaches on the island.

All restaraunts are great! Just pick your atmosphere. Get out and explore. Have a Bushwacker at the Beach Bar. Walk the Reef Bay Trail. Have a burger at Skinny Legs in Coral Bay. Enjoy St. John and the people. Of all the places we've visited in the Caribbbean, we'lll come here again.

You could just sit on the veranda all day (and night) and take in the great views of the bay and the harbor. But then you'd miss the incredible beaches close by. This is really a great place.

Stayed week of 15 May. The location was perfect. Great view and cool breeze. Never had to use AC. The condo has everything you need. Stayed in Palm Breezes. The only negative was the noise of the construction below but they can't do anything about that and if you're out at the beach during the day it's not a problem. We didn't have a bad meal. ZoZo's at Gallow's Point was wonderful, highly recommend. The Fish Trap was the only disappointment, it was overrated.
