This villa is equipped with many extras for a comfortable stay. There were many spices, a nice welcome basket, numerous beach towels, bug spray (needed often) and much more. The rooms were clean and each has its own unique charm.
Another plus to staying here is the villa is close to the town of Cruz Bay. You need a vehicle but easily can get into town or anywhere. We used the villa as home base and did many side trips to awesome beaches and coves. Every day we snorkeled. Some of the best snorkeling is in the bay in front of the villa. It has a rocky entrance but once in the water the effort is worth it! If we are lucky then this will just be our first visit to Vida De Mar. Thanks for sharing this wonderful piece of paradise!
Activity and Interests
St. John is the smallest of the three US Virgin Islands, but many people say that the island, nicknamed "Love Island", is the most beautiful. Only nine miles long and three miles wide, two thirds of the island is National Park, donated to the US by multimillionaire Laurence Rockefeller in 1956.
St. John is best known for its beautiful, picture-perfect white sand beaches surrounded by turquoise waters that are so clear, you can see for what seems like miles down. Diving and snorkeling on St. John are some of the best in the world. Hiking trails abound on St. John, usually beginning at the top of a lush green mountain and ending at yet another pristine beach, with interesting historical ruins along the way.
Getting around the island is easy. Cruz Bay, the major town where the ferry docks is on the west end of the island facing Red Hook in St. Thomas. The ferry ride from Red Hook runs hourly and is only a quick twenty minute ride.
St. John's selection of restaurants is second-to-none. It is amazingly hard to get anything other than a fabulous meal anywhere you go. There is something for everyone as far as dining goes: Everything from open-air breezy places for BBQ or a fresh fish sandwich to candlelit five-star cuisine at the top of a mountain.
Shopping on St. John is also a treat. Many local artists have unique and gorgeous paintings, sculptures, jewelry and photographs for sale. There are numerous galleries in Cruz Bay and Coral Bay to meet any style or decor. Also, there are many clothing, food, furniture, camera and other local shops specializing in island favorites.
