The owners of this condo have been visiting this island for 10 years and wish to share their condo with the world. The beauty of the Caribbean Sea, the beauty of the Island and the hospitality shown by the people that live on this Island are the reasons that we purchased this condo.
Christine Obbagy purchased this condo in 2003
We fell in love with the Island of St John the first time we visited in 1999. The location of this condo is perfect as it is a short 3 minute walk from the Ferry Dock, shopping and most restaurants. The Island itself is over 2/3 National Park with approximately 30 pristine beaches without a hotel to be seen.
We rented the studio for a week (wish we had stayed longer) and loved every minute of our stay. It is very clean and has everything needed to be comfortable. Truly a home away from home.
The view is fantastic, right across from the harbor beach. We watched pelicans diving for fish every morning while enjoying coffee on the balcony.
The location is perfect, restaurants and shops are all within walking distance. We did rent a car for a few days and a parking space was provided. It was very quiet and peaceful and the perfect place to recharge and relax. Highly recommended!
The condo was absolutely the best place to stay in St John. We traveled with another couple and the the way the condo is set up for a 2/2 is perfect for 2 couples. Both couples are provided privacy by being able to close the both connecting the main condo with the suite. The condo is located in the perfect location. You are in walking distance to all the bars and shops in Cruz Bay, which makes evening hang outs much more relaxing. No need to worry about driving through the St. John hills at night time. Our typical day was as followed: wake up and go get a cup of coffee and danish from the main lounge area, then enjoy the view of cruz bay while we sipped our office. next we would take our rented jeep and paddle board (rented from CaribbeanPaddle.com) to the different beaches on St. John (Maho being our favorite) and in the afternoon return back to condo, park the jeep and walk to the bars, restaurants and shops in Cruz Bay. We particularly liked Mongoose Junction- Tap Room (beers and Apps), Sun Dog (decent food, prices) and in Cruz Bay- Beach Bar & High Tides. Our Market Smoothies is another must stop. Fresh Coconuts with rum added!
Overall I would rent this condo time and time again. The location is prime and the condo itself is modern, up to date and the view cant be beat!! Thank you Christine for making the condo rental transaction go so smooth! Looking forward to renting again in the near future!!
My husband and I just returned from staying at this unit in Grande Bay and I wanted to write a review expressing how happy we were with the service, and the accommodations overall. The owner, Christine, was such a pleasure to work with; upon arrival, we were greeted by her Grande Bay greeter who escorted us to our unit and told us all about the condo and Cruz Bay area. We stayed our 1st night in the 1-BR unit then had to switch to the studio unit for the rest of our stay. Both units were exceptional as far as location, views, cleanliness, and amenities. We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay; LOVED that we could walk into town so easily at our leisure and not worry about having to drive to restaurants, etc. We did rent a Jeep for 2 days to tour the island on our own and it worked out perfectly. Otherwise, we hopped cabs from town to the beaches when needed.
Christine was so nice to offer us plenty of info ahead of time of our arrival, regarding activities to pursue in St. John, places to eat etc. There were no glitches at all with the booking process and the rates really were very competitive vs. other condo-type facilities in the area. We HIGHLY recommend a stay at this beautiful place!
We could not have been happier with this condo! Our group of four had the large one-bedroom & the adjoining studio - & the set-up was perfect. The accommodations were very comfortable & the furnishings are all up-to-date & well-maintained. Both the King bed in the one-bedroom & the Queen in the studio were super-comfortable & the location is absolutely ideal. We didn't bother renting a car & did not miss one. Every day we visited a different beach & either walked/hiked or simply hopped in a taxi. You're so close to all the bars & restaurants in Cruz Bay but we heard no noise from the street - even on New Years Eve! We had coffee on the balcony every morning, overlooking Cruz Bay & enjoyed a pre-dinner cocktail there every evening.
We ate out almost every night but did cook one night & having the grill was great. Two grocery stores are within walking distance & the kitchen is well-stocked (there were even condiments in the fridge!). We tapped into Rachelle at the Villa management company's expertise around excursions & logistics & she could not have been more helpful. The owner was wonderful to work with, as well. All in all - a perfect vacation! We can't wait to go back!
We traveled to St John for a wedding and had never been there before. I picked this condo unit because it is across from the beach. We're in the 55+ age group and traveling with 20 year olds. The condo is an easy walk into town and I knew the 20 years old would appreciate coming and going to town without a car. They stayed in the studio unit and I found I really appreciated how you could shut the door to the studio and it didn't wake me up when they came home late at night. Plus I was able to get up early and lounge around without disturbing them. The condo was set up for a vacation rental. The place was really clean, beds are comfortable, good quality linens, washer/dryer in each unit with laundry detergent, barbecue on the balcony, short walk to the pool, lovely views at the pool, kitchen had ample cooking supplies, appliances all worked great, plenty of kitchen cabinet space for food. I thought I would be cooking more then I did, we usually had breakfast, then out for the day, came back and had drinks then out for the night. We rented a small car in St Thomas, the parking place was located right next to the elevator. You don't need a car if you plan on staying in Cruz Bay, we had to be here and there because of the wedding. We found having the car made our trip a lot easier and there were places we visited where I didn't see any taxis waiting. I was a little anxious about getting to the condo once we arrived but the greeter was texting me as soon as our plane landed. We didn't have an exact time for arriving on St. John because we got lost on st Thomas looking for cost-u-less. The greeter was very patient, she texted me through out the day, once we did arrive on St. John she was there with a sign stating our name, we followed her to the condo, she opened the condo for us and showed us around, very pleasant and helpful woman. I'm not in the best physical shape and I found the walk into town was never a problem for me. We really enjoyed having drinks and food at the beach restaurants and the condo was so close if you needed anything. The owner of the condo was easy to work with and I felt if there was an issue she would've been right on it. She did have pride of ownership and it showed in the unit. The condo complex is clean clean clean and very quiet, no one ever disturbed us. We enjoyed the beaches at Trunk Bay, Hawksnest, and Salt Pond Bay ( a little hike required ). Shopping at Mongoose junction. I will stay at this condo again :-)
I'm not sure what I could add to the other glowing reviews, but we had an awesome time in St. John. Our two daughters met us here after their fall semesters ended and it was great having both the one bedroom and adjoining studio. It gave us plenty of space to spread out. The villa was very clean and well equipped. The view of Cruz Bay was spectacular and you are within walking distance of all the restaurants and shopping in Cruz Bay, as well as the ferry to St Thomas. No need to rent a car, but if you want to explore the rest of the Island, St John Car Rental is right up the street. We rented a small boat and were able to explore all the north shore beaches ourselves, and also did the day trip to the British Virgin Islands on the Bad Kitty which was a great day. As this was our first time in St John, Christine was very helpful in giving us the lay of the land. We can't wait to go back and would definitely stay here again.
