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

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

Imagine yourself in this 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.

Enjoy all new furnishings throughout. 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. Enjoy the spectacular island photography on the walls.

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!!

To reduce the wear and tear of our second home and maintain its overall quality, we only rent to a maximum of two adults.

About The Owner

We 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!!!

We had a wonderful time at Grande Bay Cruz Bay, St. John! Low season is definitely the time to come. Quiet and peaceful. Places to park at the beaches!!

Grande Bay met all our needs and more. It was so easy to walk to where we wanted to go. We highly recommend it.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I absolutely loved our 1st trip to St. John. We have friends who have been going many years and love it. The island is amazing and the Langer’s condo was a perfect place to stay. The location, size, and amenities are everything you will need for your trip. You are a short walk to town for all the shops and restaurants. Markets are nearby as well. The view from the corner condo was amazing every morning and evening. It was wonderful to sit on the patio every morning with coffee and look at the Carolina blue sky and bay. We can’t wait for next year to come and go back. You will not be disappointed with this condo!

Outstanding! Everything you could possibly need! Close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

St. John Escape was everything we expected and more! You cannot beat this location. You are within walking distance of all of Cruz Bay's shops and restaurants. There is even a parking spot in case you rent a jeep (which is a must do).

The unit had everything we needed for a week in paradise. St. John Escape comes with all of your beach necessities (chairs, coolers, towels) and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen (not you'll ever want to cook with all of the awesome restaurants just a stones throw away from the condo).

We enjoyed the stunning views of Cruz Bay Harbor from the deck each and every morning and evening. We would most definitely stay here again and would recommend to family and friends.

Beautiful view, clean and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

The Langers condo was a great choice. Clean and all the appliances work great. Eveything we needed was there and it was great to have a refrigerator and microwave. Beautiful corner view.. I was concerned with mosquitos but never saw any. One warning, we were very close to the carnival that ran every night from june 28 thru july 4. The bands and djs can play until 4 am and were very loud. Other than that, the location was pretty quiet.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for sharing your review with our future guests. We agree that Carnival is a fun time, and it goes on well beyond when most of us want it to! If we are there during that time, we bring ear plugs to help with sleeping. But it's also a really fun time to be there for the parade and fireworks on the final day. You'll have a fantastic vantage point for fireworks from our balcony. Cheers!

Beautiful inside and out! Perfect place to stay for our honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

This condo at the Grand Bay Resort was a perfect place to stay for our honeymoon! The condo was up to date and clean with a breathtaking view. We could walk to several shops and restaurants downtown. The staff was very helpful in guiding us where to go and what to do since it was our first time visiting the island. Truly a wonderful experience!

Beautiful Cruz Bay stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this beautifully appointed condo overlooking Cruz Bay. Leslie was SO easy to work with! Her St John assistant, Alex, was ALSO so completely helpful from before we even arrived, offering to set dinner reservations, order snorkeling equipment, arrange for Jeep rental--it was like having a personal concierge. We loved having the washer/dryer available, as well as coolers and chairs to take to the beaches. They even had cold waters in the refrigerator upon our arrival. We felt like it was home! We also received our security deposit back very soon after we returned home. Thank you again for a wonderful vacation!
