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.
St. John is the smallest, friendliest and least developed of the Virgin Islands. From this condominium you are perfectly located to enjoy St. John's peaceful and beautiful views, its pristine beaches, warm fish filled waters and romantic outdoor dining restaurants.
