Thanks for your review Darrell! It was my pleasure to pick you up from the ferry dock and ensure you guys had everything you needed before settling in. Robert and I were glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and especially the view. The roads of St. John are quite steep at times, so we do apologize if you found it a bit unsettling. Thank you for your suggestion about the light or candle on the deck table. Robert and I will see what we can do about that in order to enhance the space for future guests. Thank you again Darrell, we hope to see you again soon.

I will take a look and see what we can do about relocating the microwave for our future guests' convenience. We hope to see you both again soon! Take care!
Everything we needed

Thank you for your suggestion for the small table next the door and the hooks in the bathroom. Sometimes we are unaware of things our guests would like to see, so we truly appreciate you sharing your feedback. We will look into adding a small table for guest belongings and some hooks for hanging towels. Thanks again Elizabeth, we hope to see you again soon!
