Christmas on St. John

One of my favorite times on St. John is the week before Christmas.  Everyone is happy, the music has started back up, the restaurants are open and ready for the new season.  The beaches are not as crowded and the charter boats are ready to take you out.  Here are some homes that are still available for Christmas.
