Salty Sway make over!

Out with the old, in with the new! Salty Sway Villas just got a make over. The past couple of weeks have been spent making Salty Sway “brand new”. We got all the old furniture out and got all the new stuff in. The master bedroom got new beds, new memory foam toppers, new nightstands, lamps – the works! All the sheets we use are now luxury Egyptian Cotton sheets. The upstairs bedroom also got a new bed along with new quilts and shams. We are still missing some small decor articles, but with the new dining table and sofa the place looks so much better! And look at that view! You can see the Caribbean Sea from anywhere in the kitchen, dining area or living room. Stay tuned for more updates on Salty Sway!

Sunday on St. John

Yesterday we enjoyed a wonderful day at our neighboring island; St. John. We took the car ferry over to Cruz Bay. We were lucky enough to see dolphins in the marina before the ferry left!  First we stopped at Mongoose Junction for some luck and shopping. Then we headed over to Leinster Bay to snorkel with a scenic drive along the coast and beaches. After a 30 minute hike we came to the beach. We were rewarded with turtles and even a stingray when we first came under water. St. John is beautiful! We are looking forward to our next visit! Here is a little clip of our trip to St. John made with our GoPro – Hero 4 Silver.
