Overview

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

Condo, 3 bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

Available for vacation rental directly from the owners, Beautiful Morning is a fabulous 3 bedroom (2 kings, 2 twins), *new* Queen sleeper sofa in living room, 2 bath resort condo located waterfront right in Cruz Bay. At Grande Bay Resort, you get the best of both worlds. You're within a brief walk of all that Cruz Bay has to offer - shopping , casual & fine dining, nightlife, watersports, and yet the Resort's beachside location and amenities provide an unmistakable feeling of seclusion. Beautiful Morning's prime corner location in the upper building offers unobstructed views from the Cruz Bay ferry dock all the way over Pillsbury Sound to the evening lights of St. Thomas.

You'll be welcomed at the ferry dock by our experienced guide, who will assist you with luggage and jeep rental, and then escort you to the condo for a brief orientation. During your stay she is available to ensure that your vacation is relaxing and carefree.

Grande Bay Resort has a beautiful freeform heated pool situated on an elevated coral stone sun deck overlooking the beach. This area also contains a generously sized, tiled spa/hot tub. The resort is the only in town with a spacious waterfront gym which features treadmills, a recumbent bike trainer, an elliptical, live weights, and A PILATES machine! The view of the beach and harbor from the deck and the gym is inspiring.

If you rent a jeep, you'll enjoy a reserved covered parking spot next to the elevator that takes you right to your door. The condo is in the upper building, ensuring privacy and a commanding view. Landscaped walkways take you to the lower building's elevator to reach street level, or simply walk down the steps alongside the gorgeous waterfall.

The condo features a beautiful new kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances, including a built-in microwave and dishwasher. We have bar seating for four facing the kitchen, which is wonderfully equipped for you cooks with an extensive array of high-quality cookware, knives and utensils; a Cuisinart coffee maker with separate grinder; a toaster and a separate toaster oven. There is even a full supply of baking equipment should a special occasion come up. Serve everything on our large collection of tropical colored Fiestaware. For the all-important happy hour, there is a commercial-strength blender for those frozen tropical drinks (yes, the refrigerator has an icemaker), and glassware appropriate for all beverages, from wine to martinis, including plastic glasses you can take outside or down to the pool deck. Enjoy the view from the dining table inside, which seats six comfortably, or enjoy dining al fresco on the large wraparound fully covered front balcony, which has its own dining table for four.

The wraparound front balcony is a unique feature of this condo. Because of the architecture of the resort, our balcony is quite large (about 8' by 15'), and open on three sides so that it features cross-breezes most of the time. The views are spellbinding, ranging from the hills above town, to the comings and goings in the harbor and beach below, to the outer cays in Pillsbury Sound, all the way over to the twinkling lights of St. Thomas in the distance. It is a magical spot at any time of day, whether for morning coffee, a mid-afternoon nap in the chaise lounge, a cocktail at sunset, for dinner al fresco high above town, or for just sitting listening to the surf late at night.

About Beckie Tobin

We fell in love with St. John the minute we arrived. With all the natural beauty of the national parks, the gorgeous beaches and the quaint little town of Cruz Bay-it's the perfect island getaway!

Beckie Tobin purchased this condo in 2014

Why Beckie Tobin chose Cruz Bay

We have stayed in villas all over St. John and found that we like staying 'in town' the best. Cruz Bay is a great little town for a vacation - there is a lot going on but it is very laid-back. We love being able to walk just about anywhere in Cruz Bay without dealing with the hassles of parking or having to drive home after an evening out. We found the perfect spot; close enough to the action while remaining peaceful and private.

What makes this condo unique

We chose our specific unit because it's in the upper building in the 'line' most convenient to the pool and spa. Our line is also the only one not looking out directly over the front building. This way we enjoy unobstructed views of Cruz Bay and beyond, and it feels a little more removed from the bustle of town. As described above, our front balcony is a wonderful spot.

Great 11 Days in Cruz Bay

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property with good view of Cruz Bay and other islands. Close to everything - restaurants, bars, Cruz Bay beach. Very convenient. Rent a car or use taxi's to get to the north shore (National Park) beaches. Villa was was in great shape, nice furnishings, great ice maker. We hope to come back next year! Nothing but great things to say about the Villa

A great stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Morning was the perfect unit for our girls' trip. We had plenty of space and found the condo to be accurately described, well equipped, and in an absolutely perfect location (we didn't rent a car so walking into town - maybe 50 yards - was essential). The pre-stocking of food was perfect and meant we could get right on with vacation instead of worrying about grocery shopping. We've previously stayed in the Ritz Residences on St Thomas (which are fantastic) but thoroughly enjoyed being on STJ and are happy to have found this unit for our stay. The owner and on-island team were all great to work with, helpful and responsive. I'd definitely stay here again.

Breathtaking Views!

  • 5 of 5

The Beautiful Morning condo is appropriately named! It felt like paradise to get up each morning and see the beautiful views of the harbor. The condo is very comfortable and felt like home (we could have stayed there for weeks!). With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, it comfortably fit our family of 5 and you could have easily slept one or two more people there if desired. This condo had all of the amenities, including all of the kitchen utensils, televisions, beach towels, beach chairs and even snorkel equipment. The convenience of the condo to the restaurants and shops downtown was perfect. Close enough to walk there within 5 minutes. The balcony was spacious and it also overlooks the pool and hot tub which are also beautiful. Between the location of the condo, the views it provides, and the comfort that we experienced, we will definitely keep this one on our list to stay again. Also, the owner was very attentive to us before the trip and ensured that everything we needed was addressed in advance. Her rep met us when we arrived at the ferry dock and escorted us to our room, ensuring that we had all information necessary before we began our stay. Great people to deal with! We will definitely recommend this condo to our friends.

Great location and great views...just one small issue

  • 4 of 5

We were so grateful to find this condo...we were only staying in St. John for a few days and they were happy to accommodate us. The location was AMAZING...seriously. Walking distance to Cruz Bay and easy to find. The covered parking spot was a huge bonus as well since we had an open-top jeep. The property management company was easy to get a hold of and we connected no problems. The actual condo was beautiful, clean, and had amazing views. My only issue was that it backs up to a property with a rooster...and that rooster was perched on a branch outside our window both mornings we were there and crowed from 3am-10am. It was maddening. So my advice would be...bring ear plugs :)
