St John is no different than other popular vacation spots.  You can find a places to buy for a wide range of prices.  Before you can begin your search for vacation homes, you need to decide what you want to have in your vacation home.  Do you want ocean or mountain views?  Do you need a private pool?  Is it important to be close to a golf course?  Remember that the more items you desire, the more you may pay for your piece of real estate.

Once you have narrowed down your list to your “must haves”, you can begin to search for your own piece of St John.  If you are open to owning a private home, you may spend more money on the outset, but may be able to make more when you rent it out.  If you want a vacation experience that feels as close to home as possible, this is a good option for your family.  Another plus is that you will have everything you need to cook your meals and will save money by not eating out for every meal. In addition, you can leave some belongings there in a locked closet to save on the hassle of packing and going back and forth.

If you want that home-like feeling, but are not comfortable buying a private home, there are many options for duplexes and townhomes around the island of St John.  Again, you will have everything you need to save money by eating meals at your cabin instead of going out.  Staying in for some meals is often necessary for families with small children who get tired of being taken out all of the time and want to stay home with their toys.

There is no shortage of condos on the island of St John.  You are sure to find a place that has everything you hoped to have with a reasonable price.  There are small condominiums with a few amenities if you only want a place to sleep, or you can choose a large condo with several pools, golf courses and many other amenities that hardly make it necessary to visit the beach.  To keep your costs reasonable, do not pay for things you will not need or want.

By thinking through your wants and needs, you can ensure that you make the right choice for your budget, as well as for your family now and in the future. St John can be a great place for vacationing or for living. Pack your bags and you are on your way.
