GRANDE BAY: 'SUGAR N' SPICE': LUXURY 2BR, 1BR, STUDIO: INTRO DISCOUNTS

Cruz Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-8)

Welcome to our brand new two bedroom, two bath condo in the new Cruz Bay luxury resort, Grande Bay. Our condo can be rented either as a large two bedroom unit ('Sugar N'Spice'), sleeping up to eight people, or as a one bedroom unit ('Sugar') or studio unit ('Spice') each sleeping up to four people. We are currently offering s introductory discounts to introduce you to our home. Grande Bay is a 48 unit resort directly on the water and only a three to five minute walk to 'downtown' Cruz Bay with the ferry and all its restaurants, bars and shops. We have spectacular views of the Caribbean and harbor with St Thomas in the distance from both balconies. We have an especially good location within Grande Bay. We are on the second floor (really the third floor since the garage is the ground floor) of the rear Building C closest to the pool and away from town. It is quiet, private and has great panoramic views. Use our apartment as your base to explore the most magnificent island on earth.

Our large two bedroom unit comes fully equipped with high end furnishings in the Caribbean style. We have a very unique and welcoming floor plan. On one side of the condo is a traditional one bedroom apartment ('Sugar'), complete with master bedroom with a king sized four poster bed, dresser, desk and its own balcony. It also has a flat screen cable TV. We then have a living room with queen sleeper sofa, and there is an elegant glass-topped dining room table. You can eat there or on the magnificent balcony looking out over the water. Or you can sit on the stools at the granite kitchen counter overlooking the fully equipped stainless steel kitchen. In the evening, enjoy the 40' flat screen cable TV with Blu-Ray or our stereo with CD player or just sit on the balcony and enjoy the view.

Our second bedroom is really a connected studio apartment ('Spice') with its own bath. We have a Caribbean style king bed in the sleeping area and a queen sleeper sofa and table in the living area of the studio, complete with its own second 40' flat screen cable TV and stereo. The studio has its own balcony with the same magnificent views. We also have a separate small apartment sized kitchen with sink and small refrigerator and a separate apartment sized washer and dryer. The one bedroom side and the studio are internally connected to form a large two bedroom apartment, but both also have their separate outside entrances and the internal door between them can be left open or closed Each side sleeps up to four people (four in beds; four on sleeper sofas), so we are perfect for a family or two couples or families traveling together. And you can rent the condo in its entirety as the full two bedroom or separately as either a one bedroom apartment or as a studio apartment.

Use our apartment as your base to discover the paradise that is St John! If you rent a car, park in our garage beneath the building (parking is at a real premium in Cruz Bay). After a day at the beach, come relax pool side or sit in the hot tub and soak in the view. Or if you want to be more vigorous, come work out in our state of the art fitness center with the best views imaginable. In the evening, walk to one of the many bars or restaurants in town, or listen to music at the Beach Bar, just two minutes away. Or get some of the best and cheapest barbecue ever from Uncle Joe's and sit on the balcony and watch the sun set as you eat your dinner. So many terrific choices! But most importantly, just relax and enjoy this very special spot. We are certain that you will love St John and Grande Bay as much as we do -- it would be virtually impossible not to.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5
We stayed a week in the one bedroom apartment last August and everything went very well for our family of three.
We strongly recommend to rent this apartment in Cruz Bay.
The location is excellent, restaurants, bars, car rentals and markets are within walking distance. Your are also very close to the pier. In a few minutes you can reach the apartment without having to carry the baggage under the sun (very strong in August).
The kitchen is very well equipped and there's everything you need to cook what you want (both microwave and electric oven and pots of different sizes).
Washer and dryer are available to guests, as well as beach chairs, beach towels and cooler.
The sofa bed in the living room was comfortable for our 7 years old son (but also for an adult).
The wifi works very well.
There's a convenient parking located in the basement; each unit has an assigned space.
The resort has a nice pool and a relaxing hot tub: great places to stay waiting for the sunset after a day in the beautiful beaches of St. John.
The balcony offer an amazing view of Cruz Bay.
Try Uncle Joe's BBQ before leaving. The restaurant is very basic, but the combo plate (pork and chicken with beans rice) is so tasty!
St. John is an unforgettable island and we hope to return in the future.

Pleasently surprised!!!

  • 5 of 5
When you rent (sight unseen), you really are never 100% sure of what you are getting. Pictures can be deceiving. However, in this case, the pictures were very much true and even better than expected! Pictures we were given were 100% accurate. What was not shown was all the "extras". There was a safe, WASHER & DRYER (bonus!), beach towels, beach chairs, floats and a cooler, which I used to do my ALS Challenge...Extras that you didn't need to bring or buy!
I was a little concerned about not having a stove for 2 weeks. Not to worry! There was a microwave and toaster oven. There was also an electric hot plate which was as good as a stove top and an electric fry pan. But...there was also an electric Weber Grill on the patio which was over looking beautiful Cruz Bay!
The unit we rented was close to the pool, across the street from the water and also across the street to many restaurants and shops. All within walking distance to the ferry and Mongoose Junction.
I would highly recommend this property (and have done so) and would definitely stay there again.

Summer snorkel trip

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in the Grande Bay "Sugar N' Spice " Studio unit for 7 days and were extremely pleased with everything the unit and complex had. The studio was more than adequate for us with its kitchenette area as we ate out for lunch and dinner every day. We had coffee and Danish from the lobby sometimes for breakfast or took a 5 minute walk to The Landing for a reasonable and delicious breakfast. The location of Grande Bay is so convenient to downtown and the views of Cruz Bay are just stunning. STJ is a place people come to visit and many just never leave. I can completely understand that and we are already trying to figure out the dates for our next trip next summer. I hope to stay in this very unit again. Everything about the rental process was smooth and easy and the unit exactly like the photos. We shared a car with two other couples who were staying in the same complex but had it just been the two of us we probably would have done without as there are so many good restaurant within walking distance and you can always take a cab to a beautiful beach with excellent snorkeling.

10 Year Vow Renewal

  • 4 of 5
Hi Tom,

We had a wonderful stay in the studio at Grande Bay. The accommodations were perfect for the two of us and the unit was extremely clean and well maintained. The views were amazing and a perfect location to watch the 4th of July fireworks in the bay. The workout facility was great and the free morning coffee in the residence center was an added bonus. Love, love, loved the Nespresso machine.

The beach chairs with the back straps came in handy. We found that the pockets on them carried everything we needed for the hike to Solomon and Honeymoon beach.

A special shout out to the management team, in particular, Marie. She couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating to every request or inquiry. Please let the management company know that we were very impressed with her professionalism and eagerness to assist with any minor detail.

On a side note, you may want to have the dresser repaired. The drawers are simply sitting in the stand and not attached. On several occasions, when opening the drawers they almost fell out and onto our feet. We decided to avoid a catastrophe while on vacation that the best way to get our clothes out or into the drawer was to take the entire drawer out of the base and place it onto the bed. Kind of a pain for my husband since I make several wardrobe changes throughout the day but better than a broken toe or foot.

Thank you again for all of your help in making our 10 year Vow Renewal celebration a truly memorable occasion. We will definitely be back.

A note for future vacationers - check your cell phone plan before making calls. We found it was $2.00 a minute but the text and data were free. Also, Cactus Juice was our best friend to help with the biting critters.

Best Regards,
Charlotte and Ron
