Available for vacation rental directly from the owners, Beautiful Morning is a fabulous 3 bedroom (2 kings, 2 twins), 2 bath resort condo located waterfront right in Cruz Bay. At Grande Bay Resort, you get the best of both worlds. You're within a brief walk of all that Cruz Bay has to offer - shopping , casual & fine dining, nightlife, watersports, and yet the Resort's beachside location and amenities provide an unmistakable feeling of seclusion. Sugarbird's prime corner location in the upper building offers unobstructed views from the Cruz Bay ferry dock all the way over Pillsbury Sound to the evening lights of St. Thomas.
You'll be welcomed at the ferry dock by our experienced guide, who will assist you with luggage and jeep rental, and then escort you to the condo for a brief orientation. During your stay she is available to ensure that your vacation is relaxing and carefree.
Grande Bay Resort has a beautiful freeform heated pool situated on an elevated coral stone sun deck overlooking the beach. This area also contains a generously sized, tiled spa/hot tub. The resort is the only in town with a spacious waterfront gym which features treadmills, a recumbent bike trainer, an elliptical, live weights, and A PILATES machine! The view of the beach and harbor from the deck and the gym is inspiring.
If you rent a jeep, you'll enjoy a reserved covered parking spot next to the elevator that takes you right to your door. The condo is in the upper building, ensuring privacy and a commanding view. Landscaped walkways take you to the lower building's elevator to reach street level, or simply walk down the steps alongside the gorgeous waterfall.
The condo features a beautiful new kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances, including a built-in microwave and dishwasher. We have bar seating for four facing the kitchen, which is wonderfully equipped for you cooks with an extensive array of high-quality cookware, knives and utensils; a Cuisinart coffee maker with separate grinder; a toaster and a separate toaster oven. There is even a full supply of baking equipment should a special occasion come up. Serve everything on our large collection of tropical colored Fiestaware. For the all-important happy hour, there is a commercial-strength blender for those frozen tropical drinks (yes, the refrigerator has an icemaker), and glassware appropriate for all beverages, from wine to martinis, including plastic glasses you can take outside or down to the pool deck. Enjoy the view from the dining table inside, which seats six comfortably, or enjoy dining al fresco on the large wraparound fully covered front balcony, which has its own dining table for four.
The wraparound front balcony is a unique feature of this condo. Because of the architecture of the resort, our balcony is quite large (about 8' by 15'), and open on three sides so that it features cross-breezes most of the time. The views are spellbinding, ranging from the hills above town, to the comings and goings in the harbor and beach below, to the outer cays in Pillsbury Sound, all the way over to the twinkling lights of St. Thomas in the distance. It is a magical spot at any time of day, whether for morning coffee, a mid-afternoon nap in the chaise lounge, a cocktail at sunset, for dinner al fresco high above town, or for just sitting listening to the surf late at night.

We fell in love with St. John the minute we arrived. With all the natural beauty of the national parks, the gorgeous beaches and the quaint little town of Cruz Bay-it's the perfect island getaway!
Beckie Tobin purchased this condo in 2008
We have stayed in villas all over St. John and found that we like staying 'in town' the best. Cruz Bay is a great little town for a vacation - there is a lot going on but it is very laid-back. We love being able to walk just about anywhere in Cruz Bay without dealing with the hassles of parking or having to drive home after an evening out. We found the perfect spot; close enough to the action while remaining peaceful and private.
We chose our specific unit because it's in the upper building in the 'line' most convenient to the pool and spa. Our line is also the only one not looking out directly over the front building. This way we enjoy unobstructed views of Cruz Bay and beyond, and it feels a little more removed from the bustle of town. As described above, our front balcony is a wonderful spot.
It goes without saying that St John was beautiful... but this condo made the trip! Absolutely beautifully decorated with the most amazing views of Cruz Bay.. So close to the action but far enough away to not hear a sound when on the balcony. I can honestly say that it was the most beautiful place I could have stayed on the island, and will not stay anywhere else provided its available. The place was spotless, beautiful kitchen (with everything you could possibly imagine) and once again, I dont think you can have a view any better on the island. What makes it even better is that the owners are wonderful to deal with. They want you to enjoy yourself and will help you in any way possible. Wonderful Place! Cant wait to go back!
If you are staying in St. John, then there is no better location than Grande Bay Resort. The proximity to town is terrific, and the views from the property are simply beautiful. The unit itself was clean, functional and relaxing. It is well-furnished and filled with almost everything you could possible need. The wrap-around balcony was terrific and the views from it alone are worth it. The owner - Beckie - was extremely responsive and very helpful with questions or recommendations. I would recommend the unit without hesitation. Thank you for a wonderful visit!
This condo was excellent and had all the amenities that were stated. It had a beautiful kitchen with dishes, pots etc. as well as a washer/dryer, everything you would need for a stay. It was located within walking distance to the ferry, restaurants and local shops. There was not a need to have a car, as you could take a taxi to Trunk Bay or one of the other beaches. It had a beautiful view, really nice balcony, our party had five adults and could easily sleep eight. Also I dealt with Beckie who was wonderful, gave many helpful suggestions, on which restaurants were good and reasonable, others that were more fine dining and answered all of my questions. She also answered all of my questions about the condo. I would definitely recommend this condo!!
We really enjoyed our stay in this unit. Its beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you need. Awesome views and the balcony is great! We will definitely be back and will stay in St. John much longer next time.
This condo was everything and more than we expected. Very comfortable and well supplied with everything we needed. We loved the location to Cruz Bay. We didn't need a car and could walk to restaurants, shopping, ferry dock and more. There were taxi's readily available if you chose to venture out a little further. Would definitely recommend this condo.
The condo is absolutely wonderful and is perfectly located in St. John. Easy to walk into Cruz Bay to enjoy the restaurants, bars, and shopping and an easy drive or taxi ride to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Having a dedicated parking spot is definitely a plus, as parking in Cruz Bay can be a bit tricky. The condo itself is beautiful and well maintained, with everything you could possibly need from coolers and beach chairs to pots and pans. We had a great stay and I highly recommend Beautiful Morning!
From the resort, via a brief walk on the beach and sidewalks thru Wharfside Village and Cruz Bay, you can access the Lind Point trail and walk to numerous beaches that are the best the Caribbean has to offer, including Honeymoon beach at Caneel Bay. By car or taxi, you will enjoy the world famous Trunk Bay beach, routinely rated in the top-10 beaches in the world, with an underwater snorkel trail. Add to that list, Hawksnest, Cinnamon Bay, Maho Bay, and others to discover.
