Vacationing with your kids and grandkids? Getting married? Traveling with 4 or more couples?
For reservations of 7 days or more, occasionally, we offer special discounts for reservations made directly with us so that rather than having to pay a rental agent fee, we are able to pass the savings on to you of up to $1,000 off our weekly rates for grandparents, brides, grooms, and LGBT weddings, 4 or more couples, and other good and deserving people!
One discount per reservation with a minimum stay of one week excluding the holiday weeks of Christmas, New Year’s, President’s Week, Easter, the 4th of July (St John Carnival) and Thanksgiving.
Great Expectations fortunately took very little damage from September’s hurricanes in the Caribbean. To support our friends and staff whose lives and homes were affected – we will be donating 5% of new 2018 reservations collected in 2018 to the St John Community Foundation.
Check out our current availability and please come and enjoy the beauty and tranquiilty of St. John while helping others at the same time.
Return to Soggy Dollar
We visit Sandcastle Hotel on Jost Van Dyke annually like many others. But, since Hurricanes Irma and Maria, we've found out that the 6 magical rooms on White Bay will not be rebuilt for 12-24+ months. We wanted to help Soggy 'families' who stay on that amazing stretch of sand 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: sunrise and sunset views, multiple pools, and 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 on White Bay. Plus, we'll make it easy for you to get back to Jost Van Dyke and enjoy White Bay.
We've been back to White Bay multiple times throughout the rebuild process in October, November, and December. Soggy Dollar, Hendos, and the other beach businesses are coming along quite nicely. If you haven't noticed, the Soggy Cam is back online! While you can't stay overnight, you can still head over for a day to play.
