Grande Bay:'Sugar N' Spice': 1BR or Studio; 2018 IRMA DISCOUNTS: GREAT REVIEWS

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo


About the property

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-8)

Welcome to our brand new beautifully furnished and decorated condo in the new Cruz Bay luxury resort, Grande Bay. We came through Hurricane Irma in very good shape and are looking forward to welcoming our St John friends and visitors -- old and new -- in 2018 and are offering an Irma 10% discount to encourage visitors to come back to our magnificent island of St John and enjoy everything it has to offer while supporting our local St John friends in their amazing recovery efforts.

Our condo can be rented either as a one bedroom unit ('Sugar"),, or as a studio unit ('Spice"). each sleeping up to four people. We are currently offering s introductory discounts to introduce you to our home. Grande Bay is a 48 unit resort directly on the water and only a three to five minute walk to 'downtown' Cruz Bay with the ferry and all its restaurants, bars and shops. We have spectacular views of the Caribbean and harbor with St Thomas in the distance from both balconies. We have an especially good location within Grande Bay. We are on the second floor (really the third floor since the garage is the ground floor) of the rear Building C closest to the pool and away from town. It is quiet, private and has great panoramic views. Use our apartment as your base to explore the most magnificent island on earth.

Our large two bedroom unit comes fully equipped with high end furnishings in the Caribbean style. We have a very unique and welcoming floor plan. On one side of the condo is a traditional one bedroom apartment ('Sugar'), complete with master bedroom with a king sized four poster bed, dresser, desk and its own balcony. It also has a flat screen cable TV. We then have a living room with queen sleeper sofa, and there is an elegant glass-topped dining room table. You can eat there or on the magnificent balcony looking out over the water. Or you can sit on the stools at the granite kitchen counter overlooking the fully equipped stainless steel kitchen. In the evening, enjoy the 40' flat screen cable TV with Blu-Ray or our stereo with CD player or just sit on the balcony and enjoy the view.

Next door is the studio apartment ('Spice') with a Caribbean style king bed in the sleeping area and a queen sleeper sofa and table in the living area of the studio, complete with its own second 40' flat screen cable TV and stereo. The studio has its own balcony with the same magnificent views. We also have a separate small apartment sized kitchen with sink and small refrigerator, microwave, grill and small electric appliances, and a separate apartment sized washer and dryer.

Also, the one bedroom side and the studio are internally connected and can be configured to form a large two bedroom apartment, but both also have their separate outside entrances and the internal door between them can be left open or closed Each side sleeps up to four people (four in beds; four on sleeper sofas), so we are perfect for a family or two couples or families traveling together. And you can rent the condo in its entirety as the full two bedroom or separately as either a one bedroom apartment or as a studio apartment.

Use our apartment as your base to discover the paradise that is St John! If you rent a car, park in our garage beneath the building (parking is at a real premium in Cruz Bay). After a day at the beach, come relax pool side or sit in the hot tub and soak in the view. Or if you want to be more vigorous, come work out in our state of the art fitness center with the best views imaginable. In the evening, walk to one of the many bars or restaurants in town, or listen to music at the Beach Bar, just two minutes away. Or get some of the best and cheapest barbecue ever from Uncle Joe's and sit on the balcony and watch the sun set as you eat your dinner. So many terrific choices! But most importantly, just relax and enjoy this very special spot. We are certain that you will love St John and Grande Bay as much as we do -- it would be virtually impossible not to.

First trip back to St. John after the hurricanes

  • 5 of 5

We have been to St. John many times. This was the first time we have stayed at a condo and at Grande Bay. What we most appreciated was the location with a short walk to town restaurants and shopping. We rented a car for the week and the parking garage was so convenient. My husband was thrilled that he didn't have to hunt for a parking place every night. Sugar N Spice was everything we could ask for. The condo was clean, well equipped, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The view from the patio overlooked Great Cruz Bay and we were even greeted a couple times by early mornings rainbows over the bay. Beautiful. The king size bed was very comfortable. My sister used the sofa bed and was surprised about the comfort of that bed as well. Another plus was the spacious closet space in the bedroom. The kitchen was also well equipped with everything one might need. Tom was extremely helpful quickly answering all of our questions as we planned our trip. Although we were sad to see the damage to the island from the recent two hurricanes, we were impressed by how much work has been done to restore its beauty. Some businesses are closed but we found great restaurants every evening. If you love St. John as much as we do, please come visit again this year. You won't be disappointed. We were very happy staying at this condo and hope to return again next year.

St. John, Cruz Bay Post Irma, Jan. 2018

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Cruz Bay is looking great! While the streets were more quiet than usual, many places were open. It was a short stay for us so we didn't even make it everywhere. I was very pleased with Grande Bay and Mr. Hill's studio. Very nice accommodations! Well cared for and managed (Rachelle is great!)

I usually stay in houses in Coral Bay so staying in Cruz was a new experience. I loved it! The view from the studio was so nice. And although there are neighbors, it feels very private. Grande Bay is ideally located for walking to shops and restaurants. I know there was a hurricane 5 mos. ago, but I just returned from Belize in October, and I'd say Cruz Bay was in better shape than Belize on a good day! Pack your bags and go. It was awesome!

Perfection! Destination Paradise - You won't regret

  • 5 of 5

You can't go wrong, trust me, I'm meticulous.

My wife and I were putting together something last minute for our anniversary and a much needed get-a-way. I've never used VRBO and approached with caution. Tom responded right away and was very helpful, patient, and answered all my questions. I felt very comfortable and booked the trip. When we arrived we were greated and taken care of so nicely, the staff on site is great. When we walked in the condo, not only was it beautiful, very clean, comfy, with a great view of paradise, Tom had provided more than you would ever want/need on vacation or at home. I was amazed. He takes it to the next level. Tom also provided a list of solid recommendations. We found his favorites to be ours as well. Location is Perfect. As I stated in the title, Perfection, you can't go wrong. Tied with Bora Bora for best vacation ever.

Best yet

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to St. John and our first to stay on the West side / Cruz Bay. We won't stay anywhere else again. The Grande Bay property in general is top notch with fantastic views / amenities / staff, combined with the best location on the entire island. Within Grande Bay, this unit was just perfect. Roomy layout, well appointed kitchen, GREAT views, and stocked with everything you could need. We loved the beach chairs and coolers and the reserved parking spot in just below the unit.

On top of everything that St. John has to offer in terms of natural splendor, it was so nice to be able to bounce outside and be within minutes of restaurants, shops, ice cream, snorkel shops, dock for boat cruises, and many other locations that we have not experienced as much in our previous trips. Just really amazing.

Perhaps the biggest surprise to my wife and I was just how welcoming everyone in the area was. We love St. John for many reasons but this trip, with our marvelous accommodations, was truly capped by the friendliness of everyone we encountered. We can't wait to come back with more family members in tow, and we plan to repeat our stay here.

Grande Bay Studio

  • 4 of 5

Exactly what I expected: a perfectly fine studio with everything you would expect to find, and then some, especially if you have no plans to cook. The then some: beach chairs , coolers, and water toys. Being in town (the essential reason my wife and I chose this place) simplifies access to shopping, restaurants, markets.
