Where to Lay Your Head Accommodations Part 3: Condos, Cottages, and Guesthouses

This is a great catchall category and one that we hope others might chime in on. We will include as many links as we can think of but we are bound to miss someone. For those that we have inadvertently missed; it is not personal or purposeful.

This category may provide one the best choices for first time visitors especially if your choice of St. John for a vacation is on the tenuous side. Most of the condo units for rent are on the more populous western side of the island with the most services and stores. They represent a range of price points and distances to town, some are right in the middle of it all.
