Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Edan Lounge for 5 days because we had friends getting married on the island. Edan Lounge met all of our needs and was in a great location for us! We were 10 minutes from downtown Cruz Bay and another 10 minutes up to the beaches (Trunk Bay, Hawksnest, etc.) and only 5 minutes from our friends staying on the island. We spent minimal time at the villa during the day and ate out most of the time, but the room was relaxing, clean and air conditioned. Plus, showers were always hot!

This is a great little spot if you don't want to spend a fortune and a perfect location if you have a rental to get around with. We would stay at Cynthia's again if we return to the island!

Great Home Base for an Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Cynthia is a wonderful host and the place is exactly how it is depicted in the description. Cynthia even provided a Christmas tree since we were staying over the holiday. We enjoyed how close it was to Cruz Bay yet far enough away to seem like we were in the middle of a tropical jungle. The Eden Lounge is well equipped for making meals at home. We loved eating on the screened porch. That room is definitely the best!! I highly recommend the Eden Lounge. It was just perfect for our 8 day stay! Just rent a jeep, bring your bathing suit and snorkel gear, and you will be all set for the vacation of a lifetime.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a most wonderful 6-day stay at Eden Lounge. Perfect directions to follow to the home, great location a few miles from Cruz Bay, peaceful sleeping at night with stiff breezes and tree frog sounds! The home is beautifully constructed and maintained and I felt at ease the moment I walked in the door. Furnishings are simple and elegant with beautiful artwork adorning the walls. I strongly recommend Cynthia's Eden Lounge to travelers. The outside living room is a highlight!!

Stay at Eden Lounge!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute wonderful time at the Eden Lounge! The property was nice and clean and it had everything we needed in it! We needed a little help locating it so we called Cynthia and she was very happy to help us and stayed on the phone till we got there. The property is only about 10-15 mins away from Cruz Bay as well which was extremely convenient! I've told a few friends about the Eden Lounge and would definitely stay there again! Thank you Cynthia!!!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Cynthia is so kind and helpful! The place is perfect, a nice little drive away from Cruz Bay, but close enough to get dinner and drinks, etc. We saw geckos, deer, chickens, and goats wandering on the property. My daughter loved it! The place is simple and clean and has all the amenities we needed. The outside porch area was great as we had our daughter with us who goes to bed earlier. We had a great time here and hope to come back! It's a little hard to find, but we have found that so are most things on St. John! Once you find it though, you never forget where it is!

Quiet Garden Setting for a Perfect Island Retreat

  • 5 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...
