Overview

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

Wonderful time, great condo

  • of 5

We have a family of 4, the youngest child being 6 and she had no problem walking up the road. The live music came in through the patio at night because we opened the door to hear it, but it didn't keep the kids awake. Hardest part is that we chose not to rent a car, but really enjoyed the walks as we needed the exercise. Condo is clean and comes with a safe with a key which is nice. Great value, great place!!

Owner's Response: Kacie, we are so glad you enjoyed your trip. We often sit outside at night as well and enjoy the music! We also walk a great deal in an effort to keep off the vacation pounds!

Views beyond belief

We spent a little over three weeks at Palm Breezes and have nothing but praise for the owner's attention, the management companies willingness to help with anything, the neighbors and of course the spectacular views.

Thanks so much!

Palm Breezes, St John

  • 5 of 5

Palm Breezes was the perfect place for our family of 5! Everyone from the owner to the property manager was very helpful. Incredible views of Cruz Bay made even sitting on the balcony feel like a vacation. Condo was well maintained and upgraded and was everything it was advertised to be! An easy walk to town with great dining options plus many open air taxis to take you where ever you want to go. We did not have a bad meal but really like the Banana deck and the Beach Bar! We also had a nice snorkeling trip with Capt Bob on the Spree II. We hope to make this an annual family tradition!

Relaxing respite with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Palm Breezes made our first visit to St. John such a pleasant one! A Cimarron representative met us at the ferry dock and showed us to the villa and gave us all the info. The views were incredible, able to see water from three sides of the unit, including the Cruz Bay harbor. Being at the top of Battery Hill, everything in town was so close, yet we felt perfectly removed from it all at the same time. New windows were installed right before our visit, which was nice. We were glad to have the A/C units in the condo too, for the option to use A/C or open windows and let in the breeze. The condo had everything we needed in the kitchen, plus a comfortable sitting area in the living room and the balcony table, where we ate breakfast most mornings. The master bedroom had lovely views and good storage space and decor. We didn't use the loft because it was just two of us, but the space was good up there if you had more people staying. It was handy having the laundry unit downstairs, we were able to pack a bit lighter and do a load a few times when we were just relaxing. The pool had a cooler temperature, but did use it once just to try. Lovely views from the pool patio as well. It's definitely a hike up the hill, but certainly manageable, and a great way to get a mini workout after dinner! We drove to the grocery, but otherwise always walked into town for dinner. You certainly don't need a car here if you want to just stay in Cruz Bay and take a taxi to the closer beaches, but we did rent a Jeep so we could explore the other side of the island near Coral Bay as well. Cimarron was available if we needed anything. The laundry detergent was already provided. Bathroom was nice and had plush pink and blue towels and big beach towels as well. Beach chairs were available too. We highly recommend Palm Breezes, and Pat was a breeze to email with, too!

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!!
