The staff was very helpful and welcoming. The condo was cute, well appointed and well maintained with nice view of Cruz Bay. Bed was comfortable and ac works great. Yes you can hear the music from the establishments down the hill but with window shut and ac on had no problem sleeping at night and I am a light sleeper. I can't wait to go back. I will say walking back up the hill is not for the faint of heart or over indulged but was a great way not to feel so guilty about experiencing the excellent food and beverage to be found in Cruz bay. I can't wait to come back!
this was a cute and very convienient 2 bedroom condo.

I'd like to start w/ the great service again that cimmaron did from start to finish on the reservation, paperwork, pickup, checkout.
The Good- The location of this condo is fantastic and easy walk to town. It was appointed nicely and not misrepresented. It had all things needed for great meals to be made. The view is filtered, but great to have a covered deck. We used the pool daily and was a nice touch.
The Fair-With town so close, it is noisy and all sound goes upward, i.e,music, ferry noise, sirens, chickens. The beds/frames are very squeaky and not very comfortable pillows. We also weren't there to spend time in the condo. The beauty of St john is the beaches, hiking.
Would I stay there again? Yes, maybe another unit in Battery Hill with a better view. But we had a blast and will be back again. Jll
