WHY MARE BLU VILLA?
Average temperatures in St. John are a wonderful 86 degrees...
To really enjoy yourselves on St. John - we highly recommend that you rent a car for your villa vacation! Having your own rental car gives you the freedom to do what you want, when you want. This way you will be able to see and enjoy much more of St. John. When traveling to the US Virgin Islands, your foreign or U.S. driver's license is valid here for 90 days.
You should rent a car on St. John in advance to your arrival. Our villa escort will meet you in Cruz Bay, St. John, at either the passenger ferry dock or the car ferry dock, as applicable. We can recommend a private taxi to meet you at the airport and drive you to the St. John Ferry at Red Hook.
PRIVATE TAXI SERVICE:

You may also rent a car on St. Thomas. If that is your choice, then you will drive your rental car to Red Hook and take the car ferry to St John. This will entail navigating St. Thomas and most likely very heavy traffic. The car ferries to St. John have NOT been reliable.
Please note there are a limited number of rental cars available. Please book early. And lastly - please remember that we drive on the left side of the road in this part of the Caribbean!
If for any reason you can't find your escort, please stay where you are until we find you. For this reason, we ask that you remember to take our property manager Duane, telephone number 340-514-0117 with you when you travel. We have very limited street addresses here, and most roads are not at all clearly marked. Escorts are provided to help you get acquainted with our roads, guide you to your villa, give you a quick tour of the home and its features, give you keys to the home, the gate code and get you started on a wonderful vacation.
