Maho makes TripAdvisor Top 10

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

TripAdvisor’s new Top 10 Travelers’ Choice Caribbean Beaches includes Maho Bay.

“The snorkeling is absolutely amazing…It’s a postcard like setting…”

Here is why you should always take TripAdvisor reviews with a grain of salt though.

Among the 18 “average” reviews of Maho Bay are comments like “Greasy and blah food,” “very little sun exposure,” “crowded and no sea turtles as promised,” “attractions are the planes coming in to land,” and “my kids were quickly bored here.”

You will see no planes, restaurants or bored people at this Maho Bay. Revisit, if it’s been awhile, below…

January WAPA bills should be lower

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority has reset rates for the first six months of 2015 to 39.1 cents per kilowatt hour, down from 48.6 cents.

The decrease is thanks to the worldwide drop in fuel costs, and WAPA’s forecast for savings from its switch to propane starting this year.

“We are pleased to pass along these initial cost savings to our customers, and look forward to further rate decreases as our propane conversion project becomes fully implemented,” said WAPA executive director Hugo Hodge, Jr. in a statement.

You can read WAPA’s announcement here.

And watch an animation of its propane conversion project with partner Vitol below…

Sunset Ridge promotional video

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

Sunset Ridge owners have put together a great video (thanks to the filmmaker sons of one of the owners, one son who’s now among owners too), including some Steve Simonsen drone video.

Sunset Ridge owners are very proud of the property they share. Watch the video and you’ll see why…

St. John’s worst speed bump

Friday, January 9th, 2015

Most of the speed bumps between town and the Westin are tolerable. They’re plentiful, but tolerable.

Not this one. The speed bump by the basketball court is on an angle, so it bumps you four times, not just twice, first left, then right, then left and right again.

It really doesn’t matter how slow you take it. Hold onto your drink…

Put some new shoes on…

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

I sang Paolo Nutini from the dumpster to town when I saw this fantastic find.

Unfortunately, they weren’t my size. (But that song always puts me in a good mood.)
