“Our favorite spot on St John”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have stayed in this beautiful studio apartment for three years and plan to return every year until we can no longer travel. The apartment is very clean and well-maintained. With the owners right upstairs, nothing is ever in need of repair. We seldom eat out so it was nice to have a fully-stocked kitchen. The owners are very friendly yet non-intrusive. They picked us up from the ferry and took us to the market our first night. They have been on-island for many years so they know all the "little tricks" about how to keep the expenses down. We love the deck overlooking Cruz Bay and the ability to walk into town. There are many hiking trails starting in Cruz Bay so you can easily walk from the apartment to some of the beaches. We would highly recommend this property for adults who want a quiet retreat.

“WOW!... Paradise Found!!!”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Sonnenskuss has it all:
* Beginning with a great first impression; our host met us at the ferry, brought us to the market and then on to what became our 'home away from home' retreat just in time for an AWESOME SUNSET!!!
* Private and secluded, (bordering the National Park), peaceful sanctuary amidst lush tropical gardens and a magnificent water feature, loved by hummingbirds and bananaquits, all of which was created by our host, a landscape architect
* Exclusive guest parking
* Sincere host hospitality
* Expansive view overlooking Cruz Bay, the sea and nearby islands from your own deck 250 feet above sea level
*AWESOME SUNSETS!!!
* Persistent prevailing trade winds
* On site help, advice and guidance from hosts with 50 years of St John experience
* Daily delivery of colorful fresh hibiscus flowers, lowered to our apartment door
* Beautiful, bright, white, cool, large living space, very comfortable and well appointed
* And if that is not enough, all this at an extremely affordable rate!
* And did I mention the AWESOME SUNSETS!!!?
