One discount per reservation with a minimum stay of 7 nights and excluding the holiday weeks of Christmas, New Year’s, President’s Week, Easter, the 4th of July (St John Carnival) and Thanksgiving.

Like multiple hundred others, we used to visit Sandcastle Hotel on Jost Van Dyke annually.  Since Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the 6 magical overnight rooms on White Bay are not yet rebuilt. We wanted to help Soggy 'families' who stay on that amazing stretch of sand year after year by offering a Return to Soggy Dollar special with a stay at our villa.

Great Expectations will provide you and your Soggy family a great St. John vacation with sunrise and sunset views, multiple pools, a Great Room to relax in, as well as your own private bedrooms. Use our Great Room and pool area is a short-term replacement for the dining room morning coffees and swims at Soggy Dollar. Plus, we'll make it easy for you to get back to Jost Van Dyke and enjoy White Bay.  While you can't stay overnight, you can still head over for a day to play.
