Getting Around The Island

Car Rentals on St. John

Orchid Court is tucked within the Virgin Islands National Park, and off the route of public transport. You should plan on renting a car in order to enjoy as much of St. John as possible. Be sure to make your car rental reservation in advance, especially when visiting durning peak season.

We drive on the left in the Virgin Islands. The roads on St. John are full of surprising vistas and an occasional herd of goats. They are also narrow, winding and often steep. You will be glad that the speed limit is 25 mph in most areas.


We recommend a short wheel base vehicle such as Jeep Wrangler or Suzuki Vitara. It is best to avoid large SUV's.

By the way, parking at your island home will not be a problem, since Orchid Court has its own private driveway entrance and parking area.
