My husband and I stayed at this property at the end of June/early July for our honeymoon...which ended up being great because St. John was celebrating carnival! We didn't rent a car and had no trouble navigating the island. However, we like to do things "off the beaten path"...I don't think everyone would enjoy the safari buses or "gypsy" taxi drivers, but we really enjoyed both and you can't beat the price. $1 per person go travel to Red Hook?!
Billy's list of transportation, activities, etc. was amazing. We went to Coki Beach - interact with locals and snorkeling, St. John - hiking/beautiful beaches/carnival, Red Hook for groceries and restaurants/bars, Charlotte Amalie for shopping/pier/more food (avoid at all costs on Tuesdays and Wednesdays - cruise ships come in these days), Magen's Bay - beautiful and great to relax, Linquist Beach - this one was a little to windy and too much sea grass for me, but my husband enjoyed it.
Some of our favorite restaurants were Duffy's (not so much the food, but the atmosphere and bartender were great), XO Bistro (amazing food and cocktails, fine dining atmosphere), Greengos (Mexican cuisine in Charlotte Amalie - fun sitting in the shopping corridors), Tap & Still (great burgers). Latitude 18 was our absolute favorite. Laid back, live music, great food, and friendly locals right on the water.
The actual condo was perfect for us because we were out and about except to shower and sleep. I did cook breakfast almost every morning (there was plenty of cooking equipment for this), but we ate at a different beach or restaurant for every other meal. There were plenty of towels (for showers and the beach), bedding, and toiletries. We loved the coolers, so we could save on...
