We love our guests. Visitors to St John are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They love our island with a passion. They follow every social media update about every topic that covers St John. Their desktop is photo of St John. Some have a “beach bar” set up in their yards or basements. Some even engage in local politics. Most develop life long love affairs with St John, coming back every year or even sometimes multiple times a year. Some people yell it to the heavens about how great it is. Others keep it close to their chest so no one else will find out.
Tourists are funny people. Do they drive us crazy? Of course!! Even so, we happily help make their trip special and keep them coming back. We get the craziest requests and calls sometimes. Sometimes I have to leave my dinner hot on the table to help them out. Sometimes they call for extra blankets because they like the AC too cold. Sometimes they call to report about Iguanas poaching the pool. Sometimes they call because they hit the wrong button on the remote and just want to watch Judge Judy. They call when they get flat tires or lose their keys. They call when goats get stuck inside the fence. They call because they cannot figure out for the life of them how to open a coconut or cook a lobster.
The point is, they can call and we will always answer.
Now, most people read some reviews before booking a house. I have said it before, don’t read them! Or do, that’s fine, they are all good. What you cannot read before booking is the guest book entries. That is where I find the most insightful “reviews” of their trip.
We wanted to share some quotes from some of our guest books with you to give you an idea about how our guests feel after a stay in one of our homes. Enjoy!
“Thank you for providing such a lovely comfortable home for our St John stay.
