My girlfriend and I had a great time during our stay! It was our 2nd time vacationing in St. John after staying in Chocolate Hole in 2017.

Our visit to La Mer was perfect for two people. Patti (property manager) communicated with us whenever necessary and gave us some great advice for roaming the island. She was very accommodating and helped us with any questions we had.

The views from the deck were breathtaking! We only used the pool twice, but it was absolutely gorgeous! It was 82 and sunny all week, but by the time we were ready for bed we only needed to use the fans for a comfortable sleep. Air conditioning is available.

The condo is only a 5-6 minute walk to downtown Cruz Bay (a bit hilly on the way back, but very manageable). Amenities were sufficient and the place was spotless! Beach chairs, a cooler, towels etc. are all provided and we couldn’t think of anything else we needed all week. Dolphin Market is only about a 10 minute walk if you need groceries, but there are plenty of restaurants to choose from downtown. Taxis ($5-$7 per person each way) are also readily available right next to the ferry dock and we used them every day to get to the beaches (Maho Bay was our favorite)!

Overall, our stay was perfect. Thank you for having us at La Mer!Matt & Shaylyn - May 2019
