The manager of the Westin Resort and Villas says the past season was one of the best ever, and summer doesn’t look too bad, either. Matt Balcik told the St. John Source, "The summer looks like 85 to 90 percent occupancy." Even September, he added, is 60 to 65 percent booked. Balcik said St. John has become a ‘hot’ location, and the growing wedding business helps, too. He estimated the resort hosts as many as 70 nuptials a month.
Property managers at villas also said the season was good., Robin Clair said the winter season at the four-unit Estate Zootenvaal was "non-stop. It was beautiful, wonderful." And Lauren Morrissette said her 10-room Estate Lindholm bed and breakfast is booked solid through July 4.
