ELEGANT PENTHOUSE CONDO/INCREDIBLE OCEAN VIEWS / WALK TO TOWN LOCATION

Cruz Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Wonderful for an affordable family vacation or romantic getaway, Palm Breezes is a penthouse condo in the intimate Battery Hill complex. We are close to the best beaches, and a short walk to the charming town of Cruz Bay with its busy harbor, exceptional restaurants and unique shops. The complex has a sparkling pool with surrounding deck that offers splendid views of the Caribbean and has a gas grill and deck furniture for your use. We enjoy almost constant ocean breezes and sea views in three directions. We provide on-island management service at no additional cost.

The covered balcony is furnished for outdoor dining. It is perfect for sipping morning coffee and provides a beautiful view of the harbor, the town and open ocean. At night, it is a romantic spot for sharing evening cocktails and the twinkling lights of St. Thomas.

You will appreciate our new granite kitchen, beach rock shower and new tile floor, As we are close to everything, a rental car is not necessary.

Comfort and Convenience: This condominium is brightly furnished in tropical décor, designed to put you in 'Island Mode'. You will enjoy the fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and a comfortable living room stocked with cable TV, VCR/DVD, stereo and a selection of books and games. The second bedroom is a large loft, and provides plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax. The MBR has a queen size bed, the upstairs loft is furnished with one queen and two single beds.

Nearby Beaches, Snorkeling, Hiking: The island of St. John is hilly and scenic, and boasts some of the best beaches anywhere. You can walk to Frank, Soloman and Honeymoon beaches. Trunk Bay, the most photographed beach in the world, is about ten minutes away, and offers a popular underwater snorkeling trail. Salt Pond beach is another sure fire snorkeling opportunity--we rarely leave without seeing amazing sea turtles. As over two thirds of the island is a national park, St. John provides many hiking opportunities, ranging from the easy to the challenging. Some wind past ruins of sugar mills; another takes you to an ancient pool and petroglyphs. Palm Breezes is the perfect spot to anchor your perfect vacation.

We are now empty nesters, a lawyer and a law professor, who very much enjoy get togethers with family and friends "on island". Our first trip to St. John was in 2002, we came back a year later with our two then teenage children, then purchased our property in 2004. We fell in love with the peace and beauty of St. John and knew we would always want to return.

We wanted to be somewhere we would not be tied to a car--we do like to walk and from Palm Breezes it is an easy walk into town for dinner or just drinks at the Beach Bar. We also are mesmerized by the beautiful views, they melt away the stress of our NJ existence!

Being able to walk into town is a real plus. Also, if we decide to drive to a North Shore beach, and some want to head back earlier than others, the sun worshippers can stay as long as they like, as it is easy to catch a cab back into town and then walk home. We also love the beautiful pool and pool deck--the perfect place for an umbrella drink after returning home from the beach or to grill on a "cook in" night.

Great Vacation Getaway

This fully furnished condo on the top floor of a small tower is as good as the pictures indicate; terrific views, and a full kitchen were the highlights for us. Not a lot of people traffic in the small condo complex made for a nice private vacation. The pool area was perfect for our lazy days but the real attraction is the island itself. We can't imagine better beaches anywhere. Pristine beaches are a 15 minute drive, the town and its active nightlife can be walked to from your condo. I recommend renting a Jeep, not only convenient for things like grocery shopping but really fun, although taxis will work. What a way to break up the winter.

In a word....perfect. From my first email to Pat, the owner, to the final checkout it went as well as could be. We hardly had both feet on the ground on St John when I heard from Meghan at the property management company. She was available day and night to answer questions.

The condo was lovely and the views amazing. Well equipped and clean, there was no downside...

The perfect vacation .....many many thanks

We just returned home from a great one week vacation, due in large part to our decision to stay at Palm Breezes. Here are the notable highlights for us:

Owner Pat - accessible, responsive and easy to work with.

Property mgr. Dave @ Cimmaron - very helpful, professional and a good guy.

Immaculately clean, well maintained condo w/ample supply of towels and linens.

Semi-enclosed porch perfect for meals and sitting out of the sun and wind.

Spacious upper loft that sleeps four - we'll ventilated with windows and ceiling fans.

The pool, while small, is just right for a quick refreshing swim.

Nice big beach towels, chairs, cooler and a few toys all available for a day at the beach.

Washer & dryer (no longer coin-op as mentioned in a previous review).

Proximity to town - a very quick walk in, a challenging but rewarding hike back up.

Gallows Point Gourmet - close by for good coffee, beer, snorkel gear, sunscreen etc.

Unobstructed views in all directions w/great light all day & excellent cross ventilation.

We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids 9 & 7) and this unit had everything we needed and more. The weather, light and maritime activity is in a constant state of change and completely visible from this top floor condo. Our kids loved the pool and friendly iguanas sunning in the shrubbery nearby. We especially enjoyed the brightness of the light, wicker furnishings, Caribbean themed decor and overall functionality of this unit. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: I am so glad to hear that New Year holiday was so enjoyable--I can't picture a better spot than St. John to ring it it!

St. John, USVI - Where Rainbows Begin!

In a word, Palm Breezes is a "gem". The condo is tastefully decorated and a very comfortable place to stay. It is equipped with everything you could possibly need for your time in St. John. And the location, high on a hill overlooking Cruz Bay, provides fantastic vistas from every angle in the condo. The ten minute walk to town makes it a very convenient location for both shopping and dining. There is a binder filled with excellent information on beaches, dining, menus, etc. I would recommend a car for convenience to the beaches, trails, sightseeing, exploring, etc. We rented a Jeep Wrangler from Spencer's, which worked out well. Property management met us at the ferry and introduced us to the condo/property. Laundry facilities made it very convenient for a mid-week wash/dry. The property itself is very well maintained. The pool was beautiful -- although I must confess - when I have the Caribbean at my fingertips, I do not indulge in a pool. The grill appeared to be brand new - but look at it was all we did. With so many tempting places to eat, we indulged a little. Recommendation: the fish is so fresh on the island, try the mahi, mahi and/or grouper. Morgan's Mango - Tuesday nights - Caribbean Lobster night (when in season). Fab! Also, definitely try the local beer at The Tap Room - if you're lucky maybe you'll get to meet "Cheech," one of the owners - a very interesting guy. A highlight of our vacation, and hence the title of this review . . . we witnessed a double rainbow from the balcony after a quick rain shower . . . the main rainbow began in the center of town - a sight I've never witnessed before and a memory I shall never forget. Just awesome!

Wonderful Location!

Just returned from our weeks vacation @ Palm Breezes 12/29-1/5. Communicating with the owner Pat was very easy and she shared many details via phone & email before we committed to our date. The description and photos were completely accurate, although I will have to say the views from the balcony are priceless and the breeze is incredible. Each day we found ourselves lucky to eat breakfast with such an amazing view! The mgmt company met us early on Saturday since they didn't have a previous renter leaving that day and drove us to the unit where they gave a detailed description of the area with maps, etc. The condo also has a very large binder giving info on surrounding activities & restaurants.

We were a family of 4 and had plenty of space and used the kitchen & outdoor grill for meals. We did check 1 bag full of snacks, cereal, bagels, etc. which I would recommend since a box of crackers cost $6. For items we didn't bring, we found the Starfish market to be the best quality and the pricing wasn't that much different than Dolphin.

The condo supplied plenty of towels for bath & beach. Since we only brought carry-on bags it was nice to have the washer & dryer to do a mid-week cleaning. Access to a cooler & beach chairs made the daily beach trips easy & the refrig has an ice maker! We had a rented suv which we used during the day and walked into town in the evening which we loved..lots of walking uphil but we needed it after dinner & rum drinks. We found the area to be very safe and my college age son made a few trips to the beach bar solo to hear some local music. This condo was a great choice and I know we'll be back again!
