Conveniently located to all that is St John; the palm guarded white sand beaches, the Virgin Islands National Park, the many restaurants and bars, sailing, hiking, shopping and just plain relaxing await.

Area Information
The still-pristine island of St. John is the smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands and lies just 3 miles east of St. Thomas and a mile from the nearest of the British Virgin Islands. Nearly two-thirds of the island is national park, with forests and nature trails for your enjoyment. Nature lovers will be amazed by St. John's ecological diversity, from cactus-laden desert bluffs to lush tropical forests singing with tree frogs and painted by orchids.

The true treasure of St. John is its beaches, white with soft, sugary sand and edged by coconut palms, gentle waters, and pristine coral reefs. World-famous Trunk Bay is here, as are spectacular Hawksnest Bay and Cinnamon Bay. Part of the national park land is underwater and home to amazing coral reefs, plant life, tropical fish and turtles.

Beyond the spectacular natural beauty, St. John is a colorful and artistic community filled with unique shops, boutiques and vendors. The shelves are filled with local artwork and distinctive jewelry as well as exotic imports. All of the restaurants are locally owned, each serving up tantalizing flavors and atmosphere for even the most discerning palate. Local seafood such as mahi mahi, Caribbean lobster, conch, wahoo, yellowtail snapper and tuna are always fresh and available.

Getting out on the water is a must for every Virgin Island vacation. Sailing, fishing, scuba diving and powerboat charters are widely available, as well as sea kayak and dinghy rentals. Our favorite is sailing. The fresh tradewinds, calm seas and protected anchorages make the Virgin Islands one of the top sailing destinations in the world. Hundreds of nearby islands await your exploration, all just a short boat ride away. Some of the best snorkeling and diving spots are only accessible by boat.

Many visitors will be captivated by the fascinating history of St. John and the Caribbean. From the Taino, Arawak and Carib Indians, to the days of piracy, to the Danish sugar plantations, St. John has amazing stories of slavery and freedom, rebellion and discovery. Many remnants of those days have been preserved here. Upon your exploration you will find Danish sugar mill ruins, archeological digs, and petroglyphs from the ancient tribes that first inhabited St. John.

There is so much to do and see on this tiny 27-square-mile mountainous island that many visitors find themselves coming back year after year.

A great place to vacation!

March 22, 2011

My best friend and I decided we needed to get away - after a lot of planning and internet surfing we decided on Starlit Escape as our home base. What a great decision. The location is great - easy to get to south shore beaches, north shore beaches - everything in Coral Bay - and not too bad a ride to "town" (Cruz Bay). The house is beautiful and well maintained. There are 4 bedrooms - 3 baths and a loft. Very spacious and there are 3 decks to relax on. The pool was nice and clean and very pleasant to relax in. The real crown jewel is the "Happy Hour Tower". We had coffee up there every morning and star gazed every night. There is electricity and a blender up there too. The road to the house was a bit bumpy the first couple of days but we adjusted and it was simply a part of our adventure. The town of Coral Bay is great. A very laid back friendly vibe to it. There are enough places to eat/shop to keep most people occupied. All in all, I would LOVE to go and spend another week at Starlit Escape. A nice bonus is the owners. They are really nice - easy to work with and very helpful. I would recommend Starlit Escapte to anyone looking for a relaxing, peaceful vacation.
