My wife and I recently stayed at Serendip Condos while vacationing on St. John. We selected Serendip after an exhaustive search of properties on the island, as its description and price met what we were looking for. A few phone calls to Ted Johnson, resident manager, also helped seal the deal, as he was genuinely interested in helping us plan a memorable vacation.
The complex is set up on a lush hillside, overlooking Cruz Bay. My wife and I opted not to rent a vehicle during our stay and managed the walk into Cruz Bay (just under a mile) quite easily. Our 'Bravo' unit had a nicely equipped full kitchen, and we took advantage of the two markets located just down the hill (Pine Peace and Starfish) to provide fixings for a few meals enjoyed on our large balcony overlooking the bay. The on-site grill was handy in grilling up a few steaks, and it afforded an opportunity to chat with Ted Johnson and get good sight-seeing tips!
The units are nicely appointed with island-themed decorations and are equipped with practical items (i.e. tote bags, beach blankets, a cooler, kitchen appliances/dishes) to assist in making the stay on the island a little more cost-friendly. A large 3-ring binder filled with important island information was also extremely helpful, as was the free WIFI, should you happen to bring a laptop.
Like many who have visited St. John, we hope to return again one day. Thanks to Ted Johnson, with his ability to manage a very nice property and his willingness to make our stay a memorable one, Serendip Condos would be our first choice for lodging.
