Re: Best options staying 1 night on STT in-bound to STJ?

We have stayed at the Emerald Beach and also more recently at the Lindbergh Bay Hotel and Villas. Both were clean and both had pools and a bar. The Emerald is much livelier than the Lindbergh. The Lindbergh is much closer to the airport. You can walk to either from the airport and than taxi the next...

Re: Suggestions for overnight stay on Tortola

How awesome to own a home on Jost! I'm sure that was no small feat, buying in another country. Let me know if it is on the rental market. Congratulations!! Thanks, it was a challenge, but all worth the struggles in the end! It is a rental for now. Check out Hideaway Villa on Facebook or www.sandygr...

Re: Suggestions for overnight stay on Tortola

Might be better to call them vs emails. I have learned that the phone and personal conversation is your best bet when making plans in the BVI. There are other places to stay in Cane Garden Bay, a google search or a search on Trip Advisor should bring them up. With only staying one night CGB will giv...

Re: Suggestions for overnight stay on Tortola

We have stayed twice on Tortola. Once at the Sugar Mill and once at The Heritage Inn. Both are isolated enough that I wouldn't try them if I was only there for an evening. For a one night stay I would certainly look at the places in Cane Garden Bay such as Myett's. Do look at the cruise ship schedul...

Re: Taxi ? for Tortola

Not a long ride in the taxi at all. There will be many waiting when you get of the ferry at West End. The ride is 10-15 minutes as others have stated. The pricing already stated sounds right. We like to use Iris Penn (let me know if you want her phone number). She is always waiting for us when we as...

Re: When and/or was your 1st Time on STJ

Oh my head, you wonderful folks just turned me into a blubbering hot mess as I read through each and every story of "your first times" on St John. This thread was going strong when I was planning our first trip to St John in 2011. :D I spent the first 44 years of my life in the continental...

Re: Mia or JFK

The better option for me when traveling to the islands is which flight has the earliest arrival to my destination. If there is no difference in arrival time, I tend to go through JFK due to our starting location. Does that make sense?
