Guest Safety & Security
Guests of St. John vacation villas will find that the island is relatively safe and secure. Keeping these few health and security concerns in mind will help to ensure that your vacation is enjoyable and hassle-free.
As is true for any vacation destination, we recommend keeping your villa and your rental car locked. You are most likely to be the victim of a crime if you leave valuables unguarded on Trunk Bay.
Driving on St. John can be challenging as hills and winding roads are normal. Stay alert and drive carefully to avoid a trip to the hospital.
Do not underestimate the power of the Caribbean sun – many a traveler has had his or her vacation spoiled by painful sunburns or sunstroke. Protect yourself with sunscreen and avoid the strong midday rays.
For major medical problems, contact the Myrah Keating Smith Community Health Center (340-693-8900). For minor medical issues, it’s best to avoid the St. John hospital and the insurance hassles that may evolve. Instead, visit the local pharmacy in Cruz Bay.
For the police, ambulance, or in case of fire, call 911.
