Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Cruz Bay - Grande Bay Paradise

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)


The only one-bedroom unit with extra powder room

Huge balcony with grill, great views (20 by 9, 20 x 4)

End unit with optimal breezes

Ideal parking space next to elevator to unit

Colorful decor and local art

Located one block from Cruz Bay restaurants and ferry, Grande Bay features a beautiful pool, sun deck, hot tub, exercise facility and WIFI. This complex completed in 2007 combines LUXURY and LOCATION.


Sleeps 2-4 persons, 1 bedroom with king-size bed, living room with queen sleeper sofa, bath and separate powder room. Two flat screen TVs w/ DVD players in living room and bedroom with 57 cable stations.


Enjoy morning coffee lounging on 4 captain chairs on the oversized-balcony watching the boats and ferries and a full view of the ocean, harbor, distant islands, and the lights of St. Thomas. Then consider visiting world, top-10 Trunk Bay beach by car (your reserved parking space is next to the elevator) or use the taxi shuttle at the gazebo. At the beach, sink your toes in the sand, soak up the sun or lounge in the shade before a mid-day snorkel on the National Park underwater trail.

Stroll along the beach, doze, or read in your beach chair. Return to your place and dress informally for dinner at one of the many great restaurants, including Waterfront Bistro, Morgans Mango, Rhumb Lines, or High Tide, just a block or two away. All this and its just the first day of your vacation in paradise. Tomorrow you might drive or take the $1 new VItran bus to Salt Pond Bay, where sighting southern sting rays and green turtles is almost guaranteed. Hike up Ram Head for a glimpse of St. Croix 40 miles away before stopping at Shipwreck Landing or Skinny Legs for an afternoon rum punch.

Spend the evening on our breeze-swept balcony savoring Uncle Joe's take-out barbecue, watching the sunset and twinkling lights of St. Thomas - a perfect way to enjoy the evening. Tomorrow you might be ready for more snorkeling at Waterlemon Cay or Cinnamon Bay. If it is Thursday or Sunday, you can take the 8:00 a.m. day ferry to Virgin Gorda to visit the Baths. On Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, another 8:00 ferry travels to Jost Van Dyke, where Foxys, the Soggy Dollar Bar, and the Blow Hole are attractions.

This 1-bedroom, 1.5 bath condo features a state-of-the-art kitchen with granite countertops, stainless-steel dishwasher and side-by-side fridge, microwave, blender, coffee maker and toaster. A good night's sleep is guaranteed in the king-size Tommy Bahama bed and comfortable sleeper sofa. There is an ideal reserved parking space next to the elevator accessing the unit.

About The Owner

This couple has 3 married children who also enjoy hiking and snorkeling on St. John. He is an environmental engineer; she is a communications director.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Cruz Bay

After years of exploring the Virgin Islands through bareboat sailing rentals, we settled on St. John because of the spectacular scenery, the warmth of the island people, and the perfect weather.

What makes this condo unique

We practically LIVE on our oversized balcony, enjoying the nonstop breezes and watching the ever-changing vistas of Cruz Bay Harbor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us!! We loved everything about it, especially the best parking spot on the island!! The views are incredible and the sunsets spectacular. We visited a new beach every day and saw some amazing sea turtles, sting rays and many beautiful fish on our snorkeling adventures. On our last day we rented a dinghy and had a glorious day on the ocean. We loved your condo and all its furnishings. It is truly beautiful but yet extremely comfortable at the same time. Thanks again!

Perfect in every way!!!

  • 5 of 5

The best vacation ever according to the kids and we completely agree. Grande Bay in Cruz Bay has wonderful views and easy walking distance to dining and shopping. Cruz Bay is the perfect launching point to beaches and bays all across the island. The accommodations were perfect for our family of four. Rent a jeep on the property and enjoy the adventures and memories that we are sure to repeat again!

Comfortable, accomadating, private, beautiful inside and out

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week here with my wife, mom and daughter. What a wonderful condo. This place is truly charming. Very accomadating. Slept all comfortable, cable tv, washer dryer, stove fridge, microwave, toaster, all utensils, etc. etc. The end unit made it private with awesome views from the large balcony. Anna was very nice and informative. Hope to be back soon. Thank you Anna 😊

Beautiful condo in Cruz Bay

  • 5 of 5

If you want a comfortable, well equipped place to stay within walking distance of the dining, shopping and ferry in Cruz Bay, this is a great choice. The view from the balcony is beautiful and we enjoyed our coffee sitting out there every morning. Be aware that it's not real private though - if the next door neighbors are outside on their balcony, you will see them and they will see you. Since it's an end unit, you only have to worry about this on one side. It didn't bother us but it's something I think people should be aware of. Other than that, I can't imagine anything about this condo that people wouldn't love!

The management company was great to work with. Suzanne met us at the ferry and took us to pick up our rental car (which she'd arranged) before taking us to the condo. The unit was very clean and well equipped. Other amenities included a pool and workout room which were available to us, as well as coffee and muffins every morning. There's wifi in the condo, but if you need to print anything (such as boarding passes), it's nice to be able to do that in the rental office.

We rented a car and I'm glad we did because we saw much more of the island this way. The beaches were all beautiful so I can't really pick a favorite. We did have some favorite restaurants though - I highly recommend Rhumb Lines (tuna in particular!) and Morgan's Mango for lobster on Tues. night. Make a reservation for lobster night if you can. It was pretty crowded and people without reservations seemed to have a fairly long wait. If you're in Coral Bay, you should try Miss Lucy's. We had lunch there and the grouper reuben was delicious! If you don't like goats, cats and chickens joining you for lunch, you might not like it here, but that's what made it so interesting to me. Also it's right on the water so you can't beat the view.

Obviously we loved our trip to St. John and would not hesitate to rent this condo again if we go back. I highly recommend it. The owners and management company couldn't have been easier to work with. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us for a few days!

WOW!! We had an amazing vacation. The Condo has the best location in St. John. We have been to the island before and stayed in many places, from now on, this is where we want to stay. The View is amazing, it is walking distance from the ferry terminal and Town. We only used our car to explore the many different beaches on the island. No car, no problem, the taxis are walking distance. Every night we could walk to the happy hours on the beach or restaurants in town. New years eve we were in the middle of the action no need to drive. The apartment is equipped with everything you need for the beach, chairs, cooler, umbrellas. The kitchen is fully equipped, there is even an electric grill on the balcony. The private parking spot is a must when staying in Cruz bay. It's all Great!!

Thank you Peter and Anna May

Celebrated 25th Anniversary and 50th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

This vacation exceeded all of my expectations! You will appreciate the care and quality of furnishings Anna May and Peter have put into this condo. From the exceptional condo to the convenient location there is simply no better place to stay. We loved every minute and had the pleasure to meet the owners who are most precious couple. Our vacation was something to remember and we dream every day of coming back. If this doesn't speak to you I don't know what will - my husband is not particularly a beach person and he has stated many times "why can't we just move there!" There were so many activities and places to see and visit that each day we enjoyed doing or seeing something new. We snorkeled, went deep sea fishing, went to the sugar plantation ruins, took an excursions to the BVI and soggy dollar, saw sea turtles, rented a dinghy and motored around the island, rented a jeep and explored the interior of the island, saw the donkeys roaming the island as well as many dear and other animals, shopping of course, and ate fabulous food every meal! We cooked in the last night because we caught fresh fish deep sea fishing and that was a real treat!

So there is a lot to see and do but also was the most relaxing vacation to date! Can't wait to come back ! I do not want to go anywhere else!

10 stars on this place for sure!! Don't look anywhere else. Rent this one and you won't be disappointed.

Thank you Peter and Anna May for making my Anniversary and Birthday unforgettable!

Other activities include shopping, kayaking, parasailing and boating. Walk along the beach, doze off while reading in your beach chair, and take a quick shower before heading back to town (1 block walk). Dress informally for dinner in one of the many great restaurants, such as Zozo's, Morgan's Mango, the Waterfront Bistro, or High Tide, just a block or two away. All this and it's just the first day of your vacation in paradise. Tomorrow you might drive or take the $1 Vitran to Salt Pond Bay.
