2021 Dreaming, ...Booked

Postby sherban » Sat Jan 23, 2021 11:10 am

I recently checked out American Airlines website from CLT to STT, wow...I'm motivated to book before rates go up! RT direct under $400. nice!

I've been scouring the villa sites, obsessing & fantasizing about a 2021 trip and updating the Google villa map (link below) during the process.

Question- Is the new Ferry the way to go these days...hands down better than the Red Hook gig? Any new villas on the market that ya'll are excited about?

Happy New Year! ....Booked May 4-14!

We'll still be here through the end of May.

TracyinWI has https://grandebaystj.com/ and we are converted GrandeBay fans. She also has her lower unit at Into The Mystic renting in Coral Bay - https://intothemysticvi.com/. Other friends have their lower unit Banana Sweet that is very nice - https://www.antares.vi/en/2166326/banan ... -apartment.

https://www.antaresvi.com/ is a new management company that is doing very well.

Cheers, RickG

Hello! If you prefer mountaintop locations on the Coral Bay side of the island, Treetops villa would be perfect for you! Three bedrooms, three baths, pool, hot tub, large kitchen and living area, and great location on Bordeaux Mountain. You can find more info (and book) on https://treetops-stjohn.com/.

Ok...Thanks for the idea, I appreciate it! I updated the Treetops map pin with your website link too.

To me the Crown Bay Ferry is a much better choice as I would prefer to be on the water longer than on the road.

Did you already book a villa? I was looking at a few recently for our upcoming trips. I LOVE the views from SEAclusion on Ajax Peak. We stay on Seagrape Hill alot (Sea Palace Retreat, In Harmony Retreat and Seagrape Estate) with Greg Kinslow. Randy & Marcia have Reef Madness up there too.

Staying at Flanders Villa and Sea Palace Retreat for our two trips this summer.

Yes, we booked Sapphire Sunrise (used to be Casa Bueno) up on Bordeaux Mtn. We secured plane reservations first and then chose from available villas...
