Overview

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.

Perfect for our first trip to St John

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the 1 BR condo for 8 days. The condo was very modern and nicely furnished. The view of Cruz Bay from the balcony was beautiful. We enjoyed every morning while drinking our coffee and eating a bowl of cereal. We never cooked a meal, but certainly could have with the nice kitchen. The tiled floor was pretty and clean. The king mattress was more comfortable than ours at home, which tells me its time to replace my home mattress. There were about 6 folding beach chairs and 3 different size coolers available. We used 2 backpack chairs and the soft cooler with a shoulder strap every day to explore 8 different beaches in 8 days. The parking space for our rented Jeep was a plus as parking in Cruz Bay looked like a hassle. We could walk to any restaurant in Cruz Bay within minutes. The pool and outdoor hot tub looked nice, but we didn't use them as the beaches are what we came for. The folks at the amenity desk were very nice, and the owner Tom was quick to respond by email with any questions about St John. I would definitely recommend this condo if you plan to stay in Cruz Bay.

Fabulous Studio-

  • 4 of 5

Tom was great to deal with- offered info on Grande Bay and the island prior to our visit. The studio is clean and was stocked with many extras- detergent, soap, spices etc. Saved us time and money. We loved sitting outside on the patio to enjoy morning coffee and look at the boats on Cruz Bay. This one is a winner!

Grande Bay was a perfect spot. Great location! You are right on top of great views and all the nightlife, bars and restaurants in Cruz Bay. So many spots to choose from. There was never nothing to do, just not enough time. Some of the best beaches were a small hike or cab ride away. Trunk Bay is officially my happy place. Gorgeous!!! Took a fun day trip right from Cruz Bay where Grande Bay is, right by all the transportation (ferry and cab) on the Bad Kitty to all the different islands. Adventurous day of sight seeing and snorkeling. Not sure why we chose to come home. Thanks for your hospitality Tom. Best, Nikki and Trent

We had a wonderful time at St. John. Our stay at Grande Bay was excellent, we determined it to be a great place for us to return to next year! Our view as amazing, pool deck was great and we could walk to bars, restaurants and shopping! Great people, great weather, great food and drinks! What more can you ask for? Can't wait to come back next year!

Great rental in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in he studio for our honeymoon. The location was wonderful and the unit was clean and as described. Tom was very helpful and responsive from the beginning and once we got there, the property management company was so helpful with the little requests we had. Very quiet unit tucked away from all he nightlife, even though it's just a 2 minute walk up the street. I highly recommend!

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to St John for our honeymoon and are already talking about our next trip! Tom was so helpful and responsive during the planning process. The property management company took over when we got here and helped with any last minute accommodations. The location can't be beat and the studio unit was very clean. We walked to Cruz Bay for happy hours and dinners a few nights. We didn't hear any noise from the neighbors or the nightlife in Cruz Bay. I would recommend renting a car just to go explore the rest of St John. We will be returning and staying in either the studio or 1 bedroom Tom owns.
