Alternative to ST JOHN

Jump to last reply

Trying to plan our semi-annual trip with no kids and need your help! With three little ones and stressful jobs - we are prioritizing relaxation, romantic dinners and fun "together time". We had been leaning towards the Florida keys but are rethinking due to cruise ship inundation. Thinking it might be a bit too hectic for our tastes. We will be traveling the first week of APRIL out of NYC.

A bit about us -- couple in mid 30s. We like sightseeing but also a good amount of relaxation time. Our usual pattern is doing activities or sightseeing in morning/afternoon but stopping for early cocktail hour. Husband loves boats and we hope to rent one for a day or two. I love art, gardens, beaches, snorkeling and dancing. We appreciate beautiful hotels, foodie type restaurants and an upbeat, classy nightlife scene. We love St John -- but have been there 4 times and need an alternative. We did not enjoy St Thomas.

Would love a beachfront villa rental with character. Something romantic (but not cheesy Sandals - romantic). Budget up to $600/700 a night.

Thanks in advance!!
