Myself, my wife and 19-year-old son; USVI and BVI suggestions for Sept. 2-19

Hello!

Myself, my wife and our college son will land in St. Thomas on Sept.2 or 3, departing around Sept. 19.

My wife wants to spend a bit of time in Virgin Gorda, but that's about all the plans we have so far.

We're pretty open on what to do and see.

I'd appreciate suggestions for reasonably-priced lodging where our son can have something separate from our room.

I'm figuring on spending a few days in St. Thomas after the flight, taking a ferry to Tortola, spending time in the BVIs and then back to the USVIs for a few days before returning home to Seattle.

We have been to the area before, but would appreciate any suggestions for lodging and things to do.

In Virgin Gorda, I did e-mail with Olde Yard Village, which offers a two bedroom ground floor at $225.00 per night, plus 7% tax. If you stay 3 nights you get the fourth one free. They have a swimming pool, which I want. Anybody ever stay there?

Any suggestions for Tortola and St. Thomas?

Thanks!

Erik in Seattle.

As far as Tortola goes, any of the little places on Cane Garden Bay are quite reasonably price, Ole Works Inn, Rhymers...

What about a yacht charter or a sailboat? There are several great charter companies in the Caribbean and you can visit all sorts of small, quiet, private places and beaches. Sailboat and yachts are one of the best ways to see the BVI and your son will have option to go snorkeling, diving, along with swimming.

Best Regards,
Julia

Lacitis: Have you thought about St. John? During that time of year, you should be able to find good deals on hotels and villas all over the islands. For villas/condos etc. try www.caribbeandays.com The site seems to offer a lot of choices on a lot of islands.
