Although called a B&B, it is a resort in miniature. Wonderful little tropical estate they have inside the national park boundaries. Easy walk down the hill into Cruz Bay. The estate being up on a hill, the views looking out over Cruz Bay with the sea and other islands beyond are beautiful. The rooms are very clean, very pleasant. The breakfast patio is delightful, with a little kitchen and bar area where you can serve yourself a simple but good breakfast. The bar is self serve, honor system, available 24 hours. Lauren is the hostess. She is very nice. Wonderful place.
Hiking trails through the forest take you down to Honeymoon beach, an exquisite stretch of sand, palms, azure waters. Also walking distance is the Caneel Bay resort, where you can use their beaches and (at least off season) wander around the grounds. Rent a jeep and drive out to the southeast point of St. John where you can hike the Salt Pond Bay trail, the Drunk Bay trail and the Ram Head trail. The latter trail takes you ultimately out to a rocky point 200 feet above the water. This trail is simply breathtaking. The view at the end is other-worldly.
In 2004 we (meaning my boyfriend) and I finally made St. John, our dream home a reality. Well for a little while anyway by buyinfg a condo on the island.
Yes there is a pool for the condo community to use and we all have balconies with grat views of Cruz Bay and right over the hill is the USVI National Park.
