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!!

Great week in St. John!

  • 5 of 5

Jim & Marsha,

We really enjoyed our week in St. John and your condo was wonderful & perfect location! Being able to walk everwhere in town in less than 15 minutes was perfect! We rented jeeps and traveled to different beaches each day. We enjoyed happy hour on your deck each evening before we walked to dinner. We did drive one night to ZoZo's and it was so worth it. We had a perfect week of weather. Hope to return someday soon!

Big Beautiful Condo in Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four adults and one child stayed at Southern Serenity the week after Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. The condo is beautiful with quality furnishings. The beds were very comfortable and highly recommended by my (very picky) husband who has a bad back! Great location in town to minimize driving combined with a dedicated parking spot to make trips to the beaches a breeze if you rent a car. Our greeter Gina was great to work with and arranged for rental equipment for our baby's needs. The owners are great people and were very responsive to our communications. I can't say enough good things about Southern Serenity, and if you choose to stay here I know you will agree!

Great place, would definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Grande Bay for two nights and we would most definitely recommend staying there. It's an amazing location, right in Cruz Bay. You can walk right into town and to the ferry. You have your own parking spot, which comes in handy considering how hard it can get to find a parking spot in town. We had an overall excellent stay at Grande Bay, the only issue was that one of our rooms was not ready in time. Grande Bay is one of the best places to stay in St. John and I had a great experience there!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed at Southern Serenity back in Sept. (a great time to go) and loved it. The unit itself was great and the location could not be beat. Views were great and had a short walk to the Beach Bar. Didn't realize how much time we saved by not having to find a parking place. Unit was furnished great but I understand they have some new furniture arriving in late fall. St John Villa management was great also. Hope we can stay there again, may have to reserve two of the Blair's condos if we all can't fit in Southern Serenity. By the way views from this unit were fantastic.
