Where on St. John for getaway?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are looking at St. Thomas in the VI for a trip this summer, our first real vacation in 10 years. I like what I've read about St. Thomas (better beaches than St. Croix), but I can't seem to find accomodations that meet my desires. What we'd LIKE is "a bit upscale, on a beach, friendly staff, updated room with a view. But far enough away from hustle and bustle to be serene". Is the Ritz-Carlton or Wyndham Resort the ONLY option?? If so, I think we'd rather go homier B&B-style. This trip is for letting go, no clock, drinks when we feel like it, snorkeling, beaches, all free-style with little or no schedule, 6 nights. Money is not really an issue, we can rent a car or dine out at will, rent or buy gear, hire a small boat for day trip around the island, etc.
ANY suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated, as we aren't familiar with the Virgin Islands at all, and don't feel like we're getting much more than the standard fare from the usual online resources. Thanks.
