Hi everyone
So my husband and I fell in love with St. John. We stayed at the Westin last month and we can't stop thinking about St. John. The Westin was great, but pricey. I'm obsessed with visiting again and willing on staying at a hotel for less. (Hey I'm ready to just camp out in Cruz Bay in the middle of the plaza.) I've seen the Trinidad Inn online, but that seems like the only one for less than $200 a night (off season). Orbits,'s are't much help.

Does anyone know of a less expensive place or hotel on St. John? Or a better website?

Take a look at the website for Calabash Cottages. These are villas, not hotels, but they are wonderfully romantic with great views.

Look at Sailview in Coral Bay. They are very reasonably priced both in high and low season. I haven't stayed there (yet!) but the reviews are wonderful for it. Its a bit of a drive out of Cruz Bay but I love the Coral Bay side better and at this price a visit to St John is worth the extra driving.

I use VRBO, I've found some nice places with reasonable rates. Also look at Lindholm Estate, we stayed there a couple years ago, it's very nice and the owners are wonderful!

Hello Bee-
A lot of people don't know that if you rent villas directly fron the owners at the Westin, you can get some pretty good deals. Try for a complete list of owner weeks available with prices.

I found this nice condo on VRBO and the cost per night is actually cheaper than the hotels.
The location works nice for us since we are only staying 4 nights. The condo is called Kachira

I'm a little late to this thread but we are staying at the Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel next week. Everything I have seen so far was good review so I hope to report back here in 2 weeks how it went.
