Beautiful luxury "camping" experience
Posted Mar 20, 2017
My boyfriend and I stayed in an Eco-Studio for 2 nights and had a really hard time leaving at the end of our short stay. We are from Minnesota and do a fair amount of real camping (tents, campfires, etc) in the Midwest, but have never been to USVI before and had no idea what to expect. Overall, we both loved the studio we stayed in and plan on returning for a longer stay in the future. I don't think either of us could do anything closer to camping on the islands because of the climate. It was about 80 deg. and sunny every day of our stay and only dropped 2-4 deg. at night. This was 70 deg. hotter than where we came from, so the fans in the studio were certainly appreciated. The strong ocean breeze also kept us from overheating in the sun and we couldn't have asked for better weather. The view from our balcony was absolutely gorgeous, day and night, and we couldn't get enough of it. During the day, beautiful forest, wildlife, and ocean views and at night, more stars in the sky than I had ever seen before. At night there were a few bugs (type of ants and gnats maybe) inside even though we always kept the front door and the screen door shut, but they were harmless, minor nuisances. The screen door was floppy and not firmly on the track, so that might be how they got in. The hike down to the beach was much further and steeper than I expected, but it was absolutely worth it! Snorkeling in Salt Pond Bay was fantastic! We saw more marine life than I can list here!
