Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Cruz Bay

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, (Sleeps 6)

'The Nest' with views of Cruz Bay (across the street) are magical. All amenities have been selected by the owners to create a five-star experience, complete with a property manager to greet you as your ferry arrives to answer any questions and provide any information you need. Having lived on the island for years, she can provide you with any resources you need to tailor your stay to your specific requirements. She will provide you with information and recommendations for car rentals, water sport rentals, how to find the perfect beach, walking trails or restaurants and must do activities.

'The Nest' at Grande Bay Resort is perfectly situated in the heart of Cruz Bay and you can walk to ferries, shops (including grocery), restaurants, bars, wonderful walking trails and some beautiful beaches such as Honeymoon Beach. You can also catch an open-air taxi which will

shuttle you around the island.

The Grande Bay complex sports St John's only heated pool and spa with a large deck, waterfall and waterfront gym with new equipment.

This three-bedroom home is situated on the corner and has AC, two king beds, two twin beds and a sleeper sofa. All bedrooms have very comfortable beds dressed in luxury linens, wall-mounted flat screen TV's, and I-Pod docking stations. There are two full bathrooms and an excellent floor plan which allows privacy when resting in the bedrooms and ample opportunities to socialize in the living area and patios.

The kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a wrap-around bar for seating. The dining area has a glass-top table and six chairs. There are magnificent views from the wrap-around porch which are visible also from the kitchen/living room. While seated on the patio enjoying your favorite beverage you can watch the ferry/sailboats navigate the harbor and the locals and visitors enjoying the Cruz Bay lifestyle.

This home is the perfect place to enjoy a luxurious stay while accessing some of the most pristine beaches, marvelous walking trails, or partaking of all the water sports you desire. You are only a ferry trip away from other islands should you wish to venture out.

The beauty of St. John is that you can do nothing or go all out and have the vacation of your dreams.

About Matt

Matt is from the Midwest and Jenn is from the West Coast. We now call Minneapolis home, we are career oriented and love to visit St John when time allows. We've made many new friends on St John and truly enjoy every minute we spend on island. We hope you enjoy our island home as much as we do.

Matt purchased this condo in 2008

Why Matt chose Cruz Bay

Location, location, location...we enjoy being within walking distance to all that Cruz Bay and St John have to offer. We are a short 5 minute walk from the ferry or walk down the beach to boat rentals and fantastic restaurants. Our unit is easily accessible by using one flight of stairs so we do not require the elevator.

What makes this condo unique

Being less than a five minute walk to 10 different restaurants and shopping. Every morning we pickup the Lind Point trail and hike to Caneel Bay. We have a beautiful corner unit with a wrap around balcony where we enjoy many meals and the occasional evening cocktail hour.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Matt,



Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful condo. We leave tomorrow but I wanted to take a moment to let you know our vacation was amazing! Everything you could possibly want or need is in your condo. We loved sitting on the balcony overlooking Cruz Bay each morning and night. Beautifully furnished and decorated. Loved having TV's in each bedroom and the living room to lay back and relax at night and watch a little TV after long days at the beaches.



Your kitchen is well equipped with everything anyone could possibly need. And, the condo was very clean. Just beautiful!



Being able to walk to the restaurants, bars, casino, shopping, and taxi's was so convenient. Even though a lot of the restaurants were closed due to low season, we had a fabulous time. The weather was perfect EVERY day. We went to Cinnamon Bay, Maho, and Hawksnest beaches. Maho is our favorite.



We took a catamaran trip to Jost Van Dyke on Kekoa. That was the highlight of our trip. We would highly recommend Kekoa.



Laurie Crandall was fabulous too. We provided her with our grocery shopping list and she stocked the kitchen for our arrival. Nice not to have to run to the grocery store when we arrived.



We hope to come back to St. John in April or May. We'll check your condo's availability soon!.



Thank you again Matt.

A Piece of Paradise !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at "The Nest" for a week. It was amazing! I don't know where to start ! It was a perfect location! You can walk to all the great little shops, eating and drinking establishments. It's a short walk from the Ferry. People watching from the large veranda was one of our favorite pastimes in the evenings and early mornings! The condo was immaculate with furnishings and clean. The kitchen and bathroom was well stocked with everything you need! Loved looking through the small library of books the condo stocked on St. Johns and the surrounding areas. The workout room was well equipped with the latest workout machines. Loved working out while watching the yachts on Cruz Bay. The pool was a lovely place to come back to after a long day of hiking or a visit to the many beaches!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our Family of 5 had an amazing week at this condo. We loved the location and all the amenities. This condo has it all !! We have stayed twice at the Westin......no comparison. The "Nest" was everything we could have wished for. Matt was great to deal with and very knowledgeable about the Island. We are "craving" a return some day.

Perfect--as always!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the Nest and as always it was the "perfect" spot. We love the veranda for morning coffee, people watching and evening cocktails. It's so close to all the restaurants and bars, love not having to drive. The condo has everything we need for a comfortable stay. We had previously stayed at other locations but once we found the Nest we knew we had found "our" spot! We will be back very soon.

Awesome condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for just one night at the end of a week long sailing trip. Very convenient to the ferry dock, restaurants, shops, etc. Condo is immaculate and very comfortable. Only issue we had was not being able to stay longer. Owner was very helpful in arranging the stay. Description and photos on VRBO match the real life experience.
