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.

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
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.
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.
We had a great week at this Grande Bay condo. The location was perfect, the condo was clean and spacious. We had coffee on the balcony every morning and nothing could beat that view. Great vacation and a perfect place to stay.
Our family had a wonderful five nights in Beautiful Morning at Grande Bay. The unit was clean and well stocked with the basic essentials including soap, shampoo, kitchen basics, etc. The property manager, Crandall on St. John, met us at the ferry and took us to the unit and gave us a full tour and introduction to the unit. We rented a car from Crandall on St. John as well. Because the unit comes with a parking spot, the rented Jeep made it easy to get around the island.
We used the provisioning service to stock the refrigerator prior to arrival. It was great to have that done ahead of time so that we did not have to focus on food shopping as soon as we arrived.
Grande Bay is walking distance from town which made going out at night very easy.
We loved the unit, the view and the convenience of the location. We would have no reservations about renting this unit again.
The condo had lovely views. However, there was construction going on all day long that was very loud. It made it impossible to relax at the condo. There is a long list of chores to complete before the 10:00 AM check out. Two of the three coolers that are available were not functional. The house phone was also not working even though free outside calls were promised. The location is great, within walking distance of restaurants and bars. It is very expensive to stay here during high season, which made the annoyances disappointing.
We just returned from 12 gorgeous days in St. John, our 2nd time staying at Beautiful Morning and it was fantastic! BM has everything you would ever need to make your vacation the best it can be. From beach chairs to coolers, beach toys to snorkel gear they are not missing a thing.
Not to mention the location and view just cannot be beat!
The management team, Crandall, is easy to deal with and will help you with anything you need. If you are fortunate enough to deal with the owner, you will not be disappointed. They are extremely nice and accommodating.
I would HIGHLY recommend this condo, but book early- I can guarantee we will be for many years to come!
We had a great two weeks in Beautiful Morning. Plenty of room inside and out! The views of Cruz Bay and St Thomas are always welcomed! Kitchen was very nice and the ice maker was awesome!
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
From the resort, via a brief walk on the beach and sidewalks thru Wharfside Village and Cruz Bay, you can access the Lind Point trail and walk to numerous beaches that are the best the Caribbean has to offer, including Honeymoon beach at Caneel Bay. By car or taxi, you will enjoy the world famous Trunk Bay beach, routinely rated in the top-10 beaches in the world, with an underwater snorkel trail. Add to that list, Hawksnest, Cinnamon Bay, Maho Bay, and others to discover.
