Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Cruz Bay - St. John Escape

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Imagine yourself in this new luxury Waterfront , 1 BR/ 1 BA retreat that offers spectacular views of the turquoise Caribbean sea, the charming harbor and enchanting Cruz Bay town – all at an affordable price. Elegantly situated only a short walk from charming Cruz Bay, this exquisitely appointed and fully equipped corner accommodation features an over sized covered terrace, designer furnishings, central A/C in every room, 2 flat screen TVs w/ DVD, Ipod/Iphone docking stations, guide books, tasteful artwork and complete kitchen.

Your St. John escape will have you high up in the upper building of Grande Bay Resort, the ideal location on St. John for convenience. An enjoyable 5 minute stroll gets you into town so renting a vehicle will not be necessary. A Reserved Parking spot in the covered garage is available for those who do rent a jeep.

Cruz Bay offers excellent shopping, fine restaurants, evening entertainment and affordable transportation to the famous St. John National Park beaches. One of the benefits of your stay in this rental is the option to take a 20 minute walk to two of St. John’s most pristine and private beaches, Salomon and Honeymoon beaches.

Inside your unit you will have beautiful views from all of the living areas and kitchen. No obstructed views here. This is a highly desirable End Unit with the most sweeping views in the entire resort. You will be staying in a Full Size 1 bedroom, not a smaller “lock out” unit that is part of a two bedroom offered by others. The bedroom features a King Size bed with a separate private patio, flat screen TV, and a safe to store your valuables. This unit is ideal for a couple.

The living room has a queen size sleeper sofa, bar area and entertainment center. Our fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances has all you need to fix everything from a gourmet meal to blending refreshing frozen island drinks. When it is time to venture out onto the beautiful island, no need to fret about beach supplies, your new home-away-from-home comes fully stocked with beach towels, chairs and coolers. In the evening you can enjoy the flat screen TV and our DVD collection, surf the net with our free wi-fi (also, free long distance and domestic telephone calls), listen to your favorite music or our CD's on the stereo with CD player, or just sit on the balcony and enjoy the view.

You will want to spend lots of time relaxing on the outside terrace which is mostly covered, but also has an uncovered area to work on that tan. From the terrace you will never tire of the unobstructed views ranging from the deserted off shore islands nestled in the Windward Passage to the sailboats skimming through Pillsbury Sound to the dramatic Sunsets resting upon St. Thomas.

You will not soon forget this romantic spot for sharing evening sunset cocktails and the twinkling lights. Because of its covered privacy, we often fall asleep here on the lounge chairs under the stars with the cool breezes and the sound of the nearby surf.

Kick back and relax at your island get-a-way. You’ll come for the views and the closeness to town; you’ll want to stay for a lifetime!!

Other amenities: Pool, Hot Tub, Sun Deck and Gym (including PILATES machine).Enjoy the million dollar views!!

About The Owner

My wife and I live in Wilmington, NC, but absolutely love our 2nd home on St. John. We have been traveling to St. John every year since 2001 and are excited every time we get to go back to our St. John escape.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Cruz Bay

We couldn't find a better location on St. John that would give us both spectacular views and the convenience of being so close to town. Being able to walk everywhere means a lot to us. We don't always feel like we need to rent a jeep which is a plus. It is also nice not to have to worry about driving after having maybe one too many Painkillers at the Beach Bar. Having a reserved parking space in the covered garage is a great benefit. No more parking hassles driving into Cruz Bay.

What makes this condo unique

We love that we have a view of the water from every living area. We have sweeping views that we never tire of from the terrace. The terrace is furnished for outdoor dining and it is the perfect spot for sipping morning coffee and checking out all that is going on in the harbor. Cocktails while watching the unbelievable St. John sunsets are always a highlight of the day. We can't get over how easy it is to do everything we want on St. John starting right from our condo. It is so easy to get to all the shops, restaurants and bars. There are also hikes into the National Park we can take starting right from our place. Maybe our favorite thing to do is to walk to Salomon beach on the great National Park trail.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time on our honeymoon!! There are so many adventures that we did that it is hard to choose our favorite. We loved how beautiful the view is from your home and the kitchen is a wonderful break from going out. Reading a book, watching the world go by, drinking coffee and eating fresh fruit on your balcony was the ultimate relaxation we wanted. Thank you so much, we can't wait to come back!!!

Amazing trip to St John

  • 5 out of 5
Our vacation was amazing. From the first contact with the owners to our tearful good bye to St John our vacation was amazing. Leslie and Peter have an amazing place with all the comforts of home. Including free local and long distance calls from the room. We took advantage of the free Wi-Fi to facetime with the kids while we were away. That was an amazing bonus to the spacious floor plan that included a full kitchen, that was fully stocked with pots, pans, silverware, glassware, as well as spices and coffee filters.

The place was amazing, but the views were breathtaking. Every morning I enjoyed my coffee on the veranda and watched the ferries come into and out of Cruz Bay harbor. Then we took our rented jeep for a spin to the beach. It was nice that parking in the garage was included in the rental fee. And the St John Villa company made it very easy. They had a greeter meet us at the ferry dock. They escorted us to our room (5 minute walk from the ferry), showed us around the rental property, and then took us to the jeep rental. They even showed us the market to get groceries for the week. They also used them to book a snorkel trip on the Bad Kitty, which I'm now suggesting to everyone reading this.

It was nice to have breakfast at our place then venture out for the day. At night, we parked the jeep in the garage, and walked into Cruz Bay for dinner. The meals at Lime Inn were amazing, and the Cruz Bay Landing had an awesome Mahi Mahi fresh catch special.

We also spent one evening relaxing in the pool and hot tub at Grande Bay. The facilities were not large, but very nicely kept. And since we were there at low season there was only one other couple using the facilities. Actually, they were the only other couple we saw staying at the resort during our stay. That may be because the unit is tucked into the far upper left corner of the complex, just remote enough to feel private. But close enough to town to have everything at your finger tips.

We are already planning our next trip back, and this place will be our place to stay.
Thank you Leslie and Peter for sharing your lovely house with us.

Absolutely Spectacular!

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our stay at this wonderful Grande Bay condo. Not only that the Grande Bay resort has a perfect location in St John but the condo itself has some of the best views in the whole development. The unit is very comfortable, clean, and well equipped. There is no question that we will be back (hopefully very soon). Just like the title indicates, "This Is the One You Are Looking for!"

Grand Bay

  • out of 5
This was an amazing vacation! The Grand Bay condo was perfect! Location is ideal, everything needed is available, and the view is breathtaking. The only suggestion for a more comfortable stay would be an upgrade in the mattress. After a long day in the sun, a comfortable bed is nice. Great trip!

Perfect

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I went to St. John for the second time and decided we wanted to stay at grande bay due to the close proximity to town. This condo is perfect. There are elevators up to the condo so don't worry about having to lug heavy luggage upstairs. There is central air. It only goes down to 74 but it feels very cold compared to outside. The condo is a great size with awesome views. We loved swimming in the pool and relaxing in the hot tub. When we were there the washing machine broke and the manager of the unit offered to wash our laundry for us. We gratefully declined but it was nice knowing that they cared. It was nice having an ice machine to pack the coolers for the beach. And having a dishwasher was awesome too. It allowed us to save money by cooking at the condo but it also made it relaxing that we didn't have to do dishes. We walked to the grocery store from the condo twice which was nice too that we didn't have to rent a jeep.

Amazing Stay - Again!

  • 5 out of 5
I'll keep this one quick, since our last review was so long...another amazing stay at the island's best kept secret location. Everyone I met was so insanely jealous when I mentioned what a deal I was getting, compared to the astronomical prices they were paying at the other resorts.

Hand's down the best location on the island and most professionally run operation. Not a single issue over our entire stay and everything we needed was provided for us.

I'll say it again, you're crazy if you pass up the opportunity to stay in this fantastic unit.

Thank you Leslie and Peter!

Cheers - Leslie & Peter
