The Inquiring Iguana wants to know …
"If I'm going to swim, I want to do it in the ocean," said Dreamshark in Minneapolis, on the TripAdvisor St. John forum. "So if you love having a pool at tour villa, tell me how you use it."
Tinkerbelle was quick to say she likes "a dip in the pool first thing in the morning before coffee." And, to top off the day, "an evening swim after dinner, staring at the stars."
Wishiwasinthevis is also a fan of pools. "I love the ocean, however I prefer to look at it than be in it. I'm not a fan if salt. I also love the smell of chlorine!"
Mountainmom spoke for several people when she said a pool is the thing when the family stays in. "We like villa days where we cook and stay and never see another soul. Swimming in the pool after laying in the sun is such a treat."
Localsailor considered the question from a practical perspective. "The real advantage of a pool is that you can get buckets if water from it to flush the toilets when the power is off for hours or days at a time."
Pools are also good for families, when there are kids who need to rest and the adults can continue to have a good time.
How about you? Is the lack of a pool at a villa a deal killer?
