“A Beautiful Spot”

Three generations (7 people) aged 7 to 82 stayed at Aurora over Thanksgiving 2013. Over the past several years, we've rented homes in different islands throughout the Caribbean and the Aurora is the best one we've rented. All of the rooms are large and the house is very well maintained. It was very clean and the kitchen was amply supplied with utensils. The wi-fi was adequate, but not super fast. The pool was just right for our 7 year old. The only shortcomings we found in the house were that you have to go outside to get from one room to another. Each bedroom is locked separatel,y as is the living/dining/ kitchen area. The corridors between rooms are not covered, so you get wet when it rains. It rained everty day we were there, but each rain lasted about two minutes and then it was sunny again. The views from the several porches are terrific. We watched the sunsets every evening while having sundowners.

We rented the house through Catered to..Vacation Homes. Although I was somewhat concerned about this company because of their rather punitive contract, e.g. $75 fine if the gagbage isn't emptied, $75 fine for a lost key, they turned out to be very helpful and responsive. A representatvie met us at the ferry when we arrived and took took the house to explain how it worked. They also called us the second day we were there to make sure every thing was okay.

We rented two jeeps from Bougainville Leasing and the jeeps were in prime condition and everything went well. They were expensive, as is everything on St. John.

We prearranged through Super Taxi to have a taxi take us from the airport in St. Thomas to the ferry at Red Hook and return. Their quoted price was $75 each way for seven of us, which is significantly cheaper than the listed rates of other taxis. They were a few minutes late meeting us at the airport and never showed up for the return trip from the ferry, so we had to make other arrangements to get to the airport. I would not use them again.

We enjoyed our time at St. John. The beaches were great and the people wer friendly. Our meals at various restaurants wre very good and very expensive. I don't think this is a good place to go if you're on a strict budget.
