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.
Looking for that last minute booking to spend Christmas with us here in the Islands? Island Cottage in Coral Bay is offering a 1 Bedroom, with a Queen Bed + Convertible bed, 1 Bath that sleeps 3-4 and a hot tub with a view. Available for Christmas 12/17 – 28th, $200 off December rental of one week or longer.
An Island Cottage Sunrise
Wake up Christmas morning here.
Available for Christmas and the New Year, Coconut Retreat is a well equipped one bedroom, one bath small cottage perfect for 1- 2 people across the street from the water in Coral Bay. Great grocery shopping next door at Calabash Market and Shipwreck Landing Restaurant for lunch and dinner just over the hill.
