About Marsha Blair

Jim and Marsha are married with three grown children and seven grandchildren, which add to their busy lives. They live on a little barrier island off the coast of North Carolina called Emerald Isle. They love travel, golf and meeting people from around the world.

Marsha Blair purchased this condo in 2008

Why Marsha Blair chose Cruz Bay

We discovered St John after visiting St Thomas for 25 straight years and finding that island becoming more and more congested. St John proved the exact opposite and we immediately fell in love with the island's laid back lifestyle and spectacular beaches. We stayed at Grande Bay for three months a few years ago and love its proximity to the restaurants and night life of Cruz Bay, while remaining in walking distance from Grande Bay.

What makes this condo unique

Grande Bay is a short walking distance to town, where you'll find many restaurants and shops as well as the ferry dock and taxis. You can stay at Grande Bay and enjoy the pool or venture out and explore the many beaches the island offers. There is an underground parking garage and a security officer always on duty. The fully equipped fitness center is on site and overlooks Cruz Bay beach and harbor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'm a little behind on getting this to you but I just wanted to write a quick thank you for letting myself and my friends stay at the Southern Serenity a couple of weeks ago in May! I cannot express how much we enjoyed ourselves and your beautiful condo! With the comfort of home in a destination so beautiful it was the perfect place to spend our week! We were there specifically for a destination wedding however we were able to enjoy all of the beautiful beaches and restaurants that St. John had to offer. The pictures we took from your patio just do not do it any justice- just to sit out there in the morning and watch the sunrise and the boats come in was breathtaking!! We were beyond comfortable with the space the condo provided, and the extra luxury of having beach chairs and coolers available to us was such a welcomed treat that made for long relaxing beach days!!

heavenly and indescribable!

  • 5 out of 5
The view is heavenly and indescribable. There's no better place to stay in St. John than this! The property is right there in town so everything is within walking distance. The property itself is beautiful. The bedrooms are spacious enough and very private. This condo has everything you could ever need. Two thumbs up!

Great property with great amenities and location.

  • 5 out of 5
Southern Serenity is a great property. All the amenities of Grande Bay with the covered parking, outdoor storage, pool, and fitness facility made our vacation extra nice. The 3 bedroom condo was very clean and had a great layout for our family (two teenage kids). Everyone had space to spread out and feel comfortable. The location is perfect, we walked into Cruz Bay everyday for everything. Would highly recommend the condo and the property.

Jim and Emily

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived at Southern Serenity on a beautiful Saturday morning...the roof top ferry view, warm breezes, aquamarine water, island music, and mojitos at the Rum Hut ushered us right into our vacation in paradise. The condo was all that we could ever wish for! It was so well equipped with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen (of the highest quality too) and included everything we needed for fabulous beach excursions. We lounged in the mornings at the breakfast bar, and enjoyed the sunrise, and watching Cruz Bay come to life, with all of the boats coming and going. Cocktails at the sunset bar became a nightly tradition. Some amazing photo opportunities! We loved the island music, spectacular beaches, gift shops, a dinghy cruise, everything island life has to offer. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful vacation home. We will look forward to a return trip! Jim and Emily

Amazing!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a group of 8 who all fell in love with Southern Serenity. We stayed for 10 nights and it wasn't nearly enough. The condo was beautiful and well equipped. The property is clean and nicely furnished. It felt like we were home from the first day there. Every day was started with coffee on the balcony either watching to sun come over the hills or a rain shower that would be followed up by a rainbow. The sunsets were equally beautiful each evening. The location is ideal. If you rent a car having off street parking is another huge plus. Coming back to reality is tough but just makes me want to plan our next stay at this beautiful condo in my happy place! Thank you so very Glenn and Kathy for sharing your piece of paradise with us. We hope to be back soon!

Wonderful stay...

  • 5 out of 5
Everything was perfect! Location is the absolute best. View as well. Condo was very clean, well maintained, thoroughly stocked with everything we needed for the week. Very comfortable rooms. We (three couples) travel quite a bit and so far, never the same place twice, just because we always want new experiences. However, there is so much to do and see that one week was not enough and we would definitely stay again at Southern Serenity.
