Renting a car is necessary and required when staying at Into the Mystic Villa. We are located on an one lane paved road with three switchbacks. Although you can walk to restaurants and a few shops from the villa, it is a steep walk back up and a car is needed to get to beaches. Four wheel drive is not necessary but it is recommended.
When renting on St. John, most of the car rental agencies are within walking distance of the ferry dock in Cruz Bay. Many will meet you at the dock upon your arrival. Please see the links below for Car Rental options on St. John. Please note that most companies close by 5:00pm – this is important when booking flights. There are two gas stations on the island – both are located in Cruz Bay.
At this time, we are not recommending renting a vehicle on St. Thomas. Due to the increased traffic on the car barge due to hurricane repairs and unpredictable service schedules, there is a good chance you will be waiting for several hours for a barge. We will let you know if this situation improves.
