About Cynthia Smith

30+years resident. Came here to go diving and never left. This is my home and don't plan to live anywhere else. Originally from Tennessee.

Always loved to go to the beach. Living here I have best of both worlds. Love to grow things I can eat so a garden is one of my passions besides the ocean.

Built house in 2007.

Cynthia Smith purchased this apartment in 2007

There are so many things to do here. Why spend your money on expensive Hotel. Stay here and save money. Centrally located here to town or Coral Bay. Comfortable bed and a hot shower what more do you need.

Quiet Garden Setting for a Perfect Island Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
My adult daughter and I found the Eden Lounge Villa the perfect place for a tropical island retreat on St. John. It is ideally located close to the pristine beaches and the many restaurants, bars & live music of Cruz Bay activities too! The cozy garden studio apartment is nestled in a lush, hillside setting with peaceful, calm surroundings. The new unit is pleasant, bright, clean and decorated with cheerful Caribbean pastels and original art pieces. A comfortable King size bed and sleeper couch come with fresh sheets, and both bath and beach towels are provided. There is also a flat screen TV with cable. You'll find a full size refrigerator, range/oven and all the dishes and cooking utensils for your convenience. An airy, screened-in breakfast nook and sitting area overlook the jungle-like greenery which add serenity to the lovely apartment. (Even in the middle of the summer there was a gentle, cool breeze, so we never needed to turn on the air conditioner.) The property owner, Cynthia, had beach chairs, a cooler and snorkeling equipment available for our use and an extensive collection of books on the history, flora, fauna and fishes of St. John! We had a great time hiking and exploring the entire island. We have traveled world-wide and really enjoy meeting the local residents of the areas where we stay. This was by far our favorite vacation destination ever. Thanks goes to Cynthia for sharing her beautiful home and heartfelt hospitality at the Eden Lounge Villa on Gift Hill, St. John! Enjoy...

Great for budget minded visitors

Sweet cottage in a residential neighborhood.
Cynthia is a great host. This is perfect for a single or couple. You should rent a car if you are staying here. Great value!

Trip of a Life Time

  • 5 out of 5
Cynthia was a pleasure to work with. From the very beginning she was helpful and informative. The accommodations are exactly as pictured. The kitchen is small but has dishes for you. I recommend this place for a couple or for only two people. More people than that and it will be crowded. The porch is awesome to have coffee on in the morning and watch the geckos jump around on the screens. The cooler, chairs, and snorkel gear she provided was a life saver and we really appreciated it. You will need to rent a jeep to get around the island, down her road, and into her driveway. You should probably do this any ways to explore the island! Eden Lounge is in the middle of the jungle so there are jungle noises- but you will get used to it! Because she is willing to provide budget accommodations in a wonderful setting we got to have an authentic Caribbean experience and have a trip of a life time. Thank you Cynthia!!

Clean, Comfortable, Affordable

  • 4 out of 5
Eden Lounge provides a very affordable option to St. John's mostly upper crust accommodations. It is a newer property (2006) and so is in very good condition. Cynthia was attentive to our needs, provided excellent recommendations for activities and restaurants and a good source of general island info, having been a long-time resident. Though there are other houses close by, we never really saw or heard from them for the most part. Mostly, it felt like we were living in the jungle. This is a property for a single or couple only. We would definitely recommend it for those on a modest budget like us to be able to fully enjoy everything St. John has to offer. Must rent a vehicle!

Simple, pleasant, affordable

  • 3 out of 5
Cynthia was very accommodating, even met us at the ferry upon arrival to make sure we got to her place OK in the dark. If you are looking for an ocean/beach view, this is not the place for you. However, it did the trick for us, allowing us a pleasant, affordable place to stay while spending our days exploring the islands. Our daughter even made a new friend, the gecko that visited us daily on the porch (no worries, outside the apartment.) Amenities are basic and limited. Based on the location of the apartment, you are in the middle of the forest and there are a lot of night sounds. If you are budget conscious and looking for a simple place to stay, this is for you. Even if unsure, it's worth contacting Cynthia to learn more.

Enjoyable stay in a beautiful place.

  • 4 out of 5
Eden's Lounge was exactly what we bargained for. We could have not found a better place for the price. Krista, Cynthia's daughter, was great and extremely accomadating to our needs. The grounds around the condo are clean and well kept. Bear in mind, this condo is not a resort, it has the essentials.
