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.

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

PERFECTION.

  • 5 of 5
In one word: Perfection. I cannot say enough about this rental unit! It is nicely decorated, fully furnished, and in pristine condition. It boasts beautiful views. We (my husband, myself, my dad and sister) stayed in the studio, which was a perfect fit for us. The pullout sofa was perfect, we grilled out, visited the pool a few times, made coffee in our room or went to the clubhouse for coffee. The workout center is perfect for a morning run! What we really liked about this rental as opposed to other condos in Grande Bay are the considerable amenities, which really came in handy. The owner provided everything we might need or want, including a little extra. The beach chairs came in handy on our dinghy trip to Waterlemon Cay. We used the sunscreen, shampoo and conditioner, burner, spices and seasonings, plastic cups, all of which were provided.

I highly recommend adventurers, families, or honeymooners stay here! It is the perfect price and layout for a fun-filled vacation, with a close proximity to all the action in Cruz Bay yet quiet enough to enjoy a good snooze at any time.

Don't wait!!!!

We found this condo to be well-furnished and well-maintained. It deserves all the high ratings. A car is needed to get to the beaches but it is nice to be able to walk to, and especially from, all the restaurants.

PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the studio, and it was perfect for the two of us. The balcony view is amazing - perfect place to eat breakfast in the morning and watch the sunset in the evening! The listing and photos are accurate and the condo was clean and nicely decorated. It is the perfect location for walking to dinner/shopping or walking to catch the ferry/excursion boats. Tom provided a detailed list of beaches and restaurants that was so helpful. The beaches and food at St John cannot be beat! (We highly recommend Rhumb Lines, Morgan's Mango, and Deli Grotto) This was our first trip to St John, and we are hoping it is the first of many. We plan to rent from Tom again for our next trip!

WONDERFUL HONEYMOON WEEK

  • 5 of 5
The condo is amazing and the view from the balcony stunning. It is also wonderfully stocked (there is salt/pepper, sugar, and coffee/tea, plus filters, which you never know if there will be any so you bring some and they are the wrong size) and every imaginable kitchen item you could ever need. The internet was never out, and the people at the amenities building were always helpful. The management company folks who greeted us and answered questions were also top notch. We were married on the island on 5/21 and it was a wonderful experience to walk to the church through town. We loved how quickly we could go to the restaurants/shops/bars (minutes) and also that it is far enough removed from the sounds when Beach Bar gets going in the evenings. Coolers and beach chairs, noodles for snorkeling, beach towels, all available.
We were afraid we would not be able to get to a store the first night but there are two mini-marts close by for milk for your tea or coffee in the morning. The amenities building also has pastries and tea and coffee every morning. Worth the splurge! The only con is that there are a ton of steps, although it was quite a workout, not for everyone. Would def. stay here again.
