AirBnB review

(Review of our AirBnB room in Charlotte Amalie.)

The listing is 100% accurate. Our room was clean and comfortable. We wanted to take the bed home with us. Cat Lady and I felt very safe. The view from the room is stunning. The weather of course can't be beat, and the air conditioning works well if you need it to sleep.

Our hosts (and Tiffany the cat) went out of their way to make us comfortable. Joanna was kind enough to pick us up at our prior accommodations, drop us off at the airport, as well as get us to the safari bus to Red Hook. ($2 bus vs. $20 taxi, for the win!) She also showed us how to harvest her magic aloe plant when Cat Lady got sunburned.

Future guests should plan on EITHER renting a car OR hiring taxis ($6 to $10 and up per person per trip) OR being in excellent physical shape to climb everywhere. Cat Lady and I opted for a combination of the latter two approaches. The home has an elevation of about 600 feet above sea level, (which is where most activities are), and it's best to understand this when making your plans.
