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.

About The Owner

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.

Why The Owner chose Cruz Bay

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!

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pat, We are back from St. John and I wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed your condo, Palm Breezes. It was just perfect for us three "girls". The view was gorgeous, the location was excellent, and we did use the pool. The walk up the hill at night gave us a chance to work off our dinner and drinks. We did rent a jeep from Spencer's and went all the way to Coral Bay, twice. Driving was quite an experience, but I got used to it quickly. Enjoyed Hawksnest Bay, Trunk Bay, Jumbie Bay and Cinnamon Bay beaches. It is truly a paradise there. Can't wait to go back again. It was great renting from you and I would recommend your place to others. Thank you for helping to make it a wonderful vacation

Palm Breezes Has It All!

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking to truly get away from it all, Palm Breezes is your place!!! Its location in what I like to call Paradise is like no other. In the mornings you can sit on the balcony and take it the gorgeous views; at night you can walk (or take a short taxi ride) to town for a night of great food and drink at Cruz Bay's many restaurants. During the day you can explore the town or venture to the many magnificent beaches St. John has to offer. Aside from its great location set at, I believe, the highest point of Cruz Bay, Palm Breezes offers a comfortable, quiet get away. It is stocked with all you need for your stay. AC is available but the breezes are so amazing we just couldn't close the place up. In the afternoons when we got back from a day of snorkeling (Trunk Bay must be one of your stops), hiking or shopping in town, we'd take a dip in the pool. Battery Hill itself is very well kept with beautiful grounds. A truly remarkable getaway in the most beautiful place. When you're at Palm Breezes, you can't help but relax. I would definitely recommend the condo to anyone planning a trip to St. John, they would not be disappointed. We hope to return there someday ourselves as it was at the top of our list!

Best Family Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time staying here! The condo is in a excellent location, the kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook meals and the view is amazing! We didn't even use our AC most days because there is such a wonderful breeze. Our sons ages 12 and 18 enjoyed the upstairs bedroom and we all agreed the beds were comfy. We absolutely look forward to returning asap!!

Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from an amazing vacation in St. John and loved our stay at Palm Breezes. The condo is in a great location, with great views of Cruz Bay. Watching the sunset from the balcony was truly a highlight. The condo was very comfortable and we had everything we needed. We enjoyed having the windows open and cool breezes blowing through the condo. There was no need for the AC most of the time. The grounds were well maintained. Beautiful plants and flowers were everywhere. The rental process went well and Pat was great! We hope to return again sometime soon.

Great Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5
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.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
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

Views, views and more views

  • 5 of 5
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.
