Caribbean Family Vacations at Kismet

Kismet and St. John are the perfect marriage of space and location for a memorable Caribbean family vacation or reunion.

Kismet is not only elegant and exciting for adults, but provides an extensive selection of equipment and materials for your children's comfort, entertainment, interest and education.

With all the family amenities Kismet has to offer, everyone will find their favorite place to play. From the Billiard Room and Home Theater to the Tower with 360 degree panoramic views, all of these features are enhanced even more by Kismet's location on St. John, US Virgin Islands.

Let your toddler enjoy the toys, games and books provided at the villa; a pack-n-play is also available. And a Bugaboo stroller is perfect for a walk around the neighborhood with your baby or toddler. During nap time or while you savor an after dinner drink, one of the baby monitors will help you fully relax while keeping you in tune with their needs.

Your older children will stay entertained with the play station, Wii and the Billiard Room. They will also enjoy a morning matinee in the Home Theater with Bambi, Cinderella, or Nemo; we have many children's films to choose from.

The large dining areas encourage communal meals both in the Dining Room and in the Courtyard next to the Pool and Hot Tub, with a dining booster seat to include everyone in the celebratory meals.

The Master Bedroom Suite is centrally located so the head of the household is close by but also has the space Mom and Dad need to have their vacation renewal time, while spacious and separate Guest Suites allow privacy for grandparents to take an afternoon respite or for the little ones who need a quiet spot for a nap.

Your baby, on his/her first trip to St. John, will sleep comfortably in a full size crib.

For young children who are not quite ready for a "grown up" bed, Kismet provides a variety of Areo beds.

There's plenty of room in the Pool Courtyard or the Lower Courtyard for the teens to work on their tans between taking in the view in the Tower and games in the Billiard Room, as the toddler is taught the basics of swimming in the pool.

Kismet's Gourmet Kitchen, with separate refrigerated drink drawers, ice maker and soft ice cream maker, makes afternoon pool parties with the whole family a snap. The bar in the Great Room enhances a delightful, comfortable living area overlooking the pool. And the Home Theater inspires families to bring their old home movies on DVD's to play again as they create new memories at Kismet.

In addition to Kismet's many family amenities, our 24/7 on-site Estate Managers, live outside the common area in an apartment over the garage, and will handle any request, usual or unusual. The Estate Managers, Adrian and Michelle, have a toddler themselves and so are well experienced in the ways of children.

Family Vacation Activities on St John

St. John is an ideal location for a family vacation. With a plethora of day activities, your children will be able to let go and play hard while learning new skills. Let them discover the magic of sailing with friendly and helpful charter boat captains, boogie board on the soft white sand, learn how to snorkel and discover the beauties under the sea on St. John, described in the May, 2010, issue of Caribbean Travel & Life as one of the top 5 (first one listed) most spectacular snorkel spots.

St. John's beauty and the many ways to explore it, is something every family member, regardless of age, will fall in love with. St John Island activities are for all ages and athletic abilities.

For a day at the beach, adults and children alike will enjoy building sand castles with the colorful selection of shovels and pails, and the comfort of beach chairs and an umbrella. And the "beach shower" with foot bat is located in the driveway and makes clean-up a snap, no matter how much of the beach the little ones bring home in their suits.

Sunday at Hawksnest Beach is unofficial family day for many of the island residents with children. The beach is filled with kids who are open and friendly and always ready to meet a new friend. This is a good place to get to know the true magic of St. John on a deeper level, through the families on St. John who are lucky enough to call it home.

The shoppers in the family will enjoy the unique and eclectic shops in Cruz Bay and Coral Bay.

Hike trails in the Virgin Islands National Park and explore the ruins, learning the history and archeology. Trails vary in length and level of difficulty, and there are many that younger family members can hike with no problem.

The Park also features underwater snorkel trails which family members of all ages will find fascinating.

St. John Dining with Children

There are many restaurants that are very family friendly for the nights you want to dine out. Please see our favorite St John restaurants for various times of the day. The Estate Managers would be glad to make your reservations.
