We had a day of stress due to airplane problems were left stranded in St Thomas. Fortunately our taxi driver called Lorna and made the booking for us . In the morning we woke to a majestic view of the Bay and sounds of birds .
The apt was very well equipped for the 6 of us and decorated tastefully . Most of all Lorna went to the extra mile to make us comfortable, it would be advisable if staying for a few days to have a rental cat to access the beach and shopping .
Stayed at Pelican way with my family in late December. What a perfect location to get away from the igloo of the Northeast. We stayed in the Frangipani Villa, with modern furnishings, and luxurious bathroom, among other pleasures. My simple pleasure was rising to the scenic view each morning, and chirping birds just outside my window, seemingly beckoning us to enjoy the beauty at hand.
Jos Van Dyke and a few other islands in the British Virgin Islands is visible in the distance, as are a few largely uninhabited islands close by..
The owner, Ms. Bartlette, was quite gracious in assisting us as we tried to figure out the island, and decide the best spots on the islands. But I really didn't leave much, as I devoured a few books on the back porch, overlooking the lush forest and ocean.
Use 4-wheel drive vehicle, which are plentiful on the islands, as the terrain can be a bit challenging for small cars.
I'm plotting my return.
