Villa Video: Lunazul

Monday, August 31st, 2015

Want views? Here they are.

Lunazul is near the top of Bordeaux Mountain on the Coral Bay side, straight up Costanzo Road.

Lunazul is both a vacation rental, and for sale.

Two cottages, four bedrooms: Live in one and rent the other. Rent all four bedrooms, or move the family in and put up a “Do Not Disturb” sign.

We really liked this place. Check out Lunazul, below….

Villa Video: Solar powered Villa Tiffany

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

Here’s a solar-powered 3-bedroom villa in Coral Bay with 180-degree, mountaintop views.

The villa is about 900 feet above Shipwreck landing in Freemans Ground.

Villa Tiffany is managed by James M. Miller Property Management and starts at less than $2,700 a week in low season.

That’s a lot of view for the money. Check out the Villa Tiffany video below…

Jeep Cam: Overlook to Overlook

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

On your way to the North Shore beaches, take a couple of minutes to pull over at the overlooks. No matter how many times you’ve visited St. John, the views are always breathtaking.

Jeep Cam goes from the Cruz Bay overlook to the Caneel Bay overlook in two minutes…

A healthier Painkiller

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

This is why you should limit the number of Painkillers you treat yourself too. Coco Lopez solidifies in the refrigerator it is so full of fat and sugars.

One tablespoon contains 130 calories, 23 percent of your daily saturated fat allowance and 20 grams of sugars. Watch a bartender make a Painkiller and you’ll see twice that goes in.

Let’s see if a healthier Painkiller passes a blind taste test, (like replacing French roast with Folger’s crystals.)

Half a St. John bartender’s 120-calorie pour of rum and just a half a tablespoon of Coco Lopez.

Let’s see what happens…

Painkiller 101

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Soggy Dollar owner Jerry will never share the exact recipe for a Painkiller, but the ingredients are pretty basic.

We found a Pussers bottle in the freezer and that is the original Painkiller rum (though you’ll have to go to Barbados or Tortola – or Annapolis – to get it that way.)

With a little refresher course from an expert, here’s how you make a Painkiller…

Bar Wars 2015

Monday, July 20th, 2015

Sunday was Bar Wars 2015 on the beach in front of the Beach Bar.

It’s an obstacle course-relay race pitting local bartender teams against each other and, in keeping with their profession, there is drinking.

If you watch nothing else of this short video, watch the last 10 seconds. No beer goes to waste in Bar Wars, not even that spilled on a tray.

Jeep Cam: Concordia

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

A drive along the quiet upper Concordia road pays off with spectacular views, and a nice place to sit and enjoy them.

If you keep driving down the hill, you can park and take a very short hike to Drunk Bay.

An Awesome Vacation Video

Monday, July 13th, 2015

That’s how Justin and Lauren Crews from San Diego end their St. John vacation video. We all know that have-to-go-home feeling.

Justin and Lauren discovered St. John on their honeymoon four years ago.

Justin’s vacation video unique. We know his camera rigging because he told us. Set aside a few minutes in your day to watch, and see if you can figure out how he did it…

Time Lapse, Turtle Beach

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Here’s another GoPro time lapse video from On-StJohn.com reader Michael Sengstock.

Enjoy three sunny hours on Caneel Bay’s Turtle Beach in just three minutes. Awesome Mike…
