Looking for condo resort on St. John

Jump to last reply

We haven't been to St. John in twenty years. Back then it was not developed and had very few tourists. First question, are there many tourists who come over from St. Thomas from the cruise ships? Secondly, we stayed at Caneel when we visited twenty years ago. It was very nice but our tastes have changed in regard to accomodations. We prefer condos as we like to eat in as much as eating out.

I have seen many posts regarding the crime on St. John with regard to renting villas. Is there a gated condo resort located closer to the beaches? I'm talking about possibly ten or more condos together with a pool. Kind of what you would find on Cayman or Turks and Caicos. What I've read so far seems to say condos are only situated up on the bluffs not close to the beaches. Also, does caneel have condos now?

If St. John's has become very touristy, would you suggest Curacao. We love to dive, snorkel with our children, and go on adventures around the island. Shopping in my opinion is about the same any where you go in the caribbean... crystal, jewelry etc. really not looking for the "port of call" feel.

Thanks
