GRANDE BAY RESORT, CLOSEST TO POOL, A STUDIO, 1BR OR 2BR W/GRILL & SNORKEL GEAR

Cruz Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom + 2 Convertible bed(s), 2 Bath (Sleeps 2-8)

This popular TWO bedroom condo is offered as EITHER a one bedroom, a studio or a two-bedroom when you rent both sides. The larger one-bedroom side comes with parking and the Char-broil grill on the terrace, and the King bed master suite. The Studio has a queen bed & futon. Both have private front terraces with bay view.

The upper building location of this condo within Grande Bay resort is simply the BEST. And, the recently installed artwork & furnishings inside the condo are spectacular. And to top it off, all condos at GRANDE BAY now have FREE LONG-DISTANCE calling to the USA, so if you need to check-in with the mainland, you can!

This condo is a rare lock-out, not many at Grande Bay, and really the most flexible layout for owners and guests. You can rent the STUDIO side only, or the ONE BEDROOM side only, or both, as they are separated by a lock-out door in between, like the best suites in a hotel.

With both sides rented, we can sleep two families of 4-8.

The Grande Bay Resort is the Only in St. John with a heated pool situated on an elevated sun deck with a commanding view about 30' above the water, with its own waterfall to add to the unique sights and sound of the resort. The view from the deck and the gym is unparalleled. The pool itself is unique, and will delight young & old with the ceramic tile inserts of an eagle ray, hawksbill turtles, an octopus, amongst other aquatic life, all chosen by the owner of this unit. Grande Bay is the only resort in town with a spacious waterfront gym. It is well-equipped with modern equipment.

This condo, like all in Grande Bay, features a state-of-the-art kitchen with granite countertops, all stainless-steel appliances, and a built-in microwave. The owner of this unit expanded the granite countertop to provide proper bar seating for three facing the kitchen, and has equipped the kitchen with a restaurant quality oversized Kitchen-aid blender for Pina Coldas, a coffee maker, a pop-up toaster & separate toaster oven, and an extensive supply of restaurant quality cookware. The Master bedroom features a 4-poster solid teak bed with pillow top mattress, and full bath. In the living room is a queen size futon sofa by Ligne Roset, the most ergonomic, easy to fold-out and comfortable sleeper sofa made. And facing the TV is the mahogany day bed/love seat.

The condo is decorated and furnished to keep you in the island mood while indoors or out on one of two private terraces. The front terrace is the place to be anytime of day to enjoy the beach, harbor and distant Caribbean views. There is ample rattan seating, a coffee table and the entire terrace is covered to protect from sun or any rain shower. There is also a rear terrace that provides for outdoor reading and enjoyment in seclusion with two umbrella chairs you can also take to the beach. (There are beach chairs you can take to the nearby beaches.) The first floor units at Grande Bay are the only with larger rear terraces, at the ground level in the back, that provide a comfortable seating area for two. You will find some whimsy here as well. At Grande Bay, the easy island life is all about enjoying the beach, the water, and the location!

I have travelled throughout the caribbean and the world and am trully impressed by this place. The location of the place is amazing. Arrived and could not believe its proximity to the pool and town. A few minute walk to an amazing trail which leads to some of the best beaches i have ever been Being next door to Low Key Dive Shop is great: I was able to dive and my daughter came along for snorkeling and in the end took up diving. Having both the Studio and one-bedroom is ample room for our family, heck, could have done just the one-bedroom, but having separate TV room for kids in Studio is nice. Have already paddled the owner’s kayak to Honeymoon beach, what a joy with view of coral and aquatic life via porthole. Artwork in condo is amazing….really family friendly owner and property manager providing great tips on what to do, where to go. He is very knowledgeable about the island and gave advice on hikes, beaches and restaurants. . We will be back.

Great stay in STJ

We fully enjoyed our time in St. John and this condo was the perfect place for our family. We rented it as the two bedroom as there were five adults. The arrangement was perfect for complete privacy but also for opening the adjoining doors for socializing. Views from both units were great and the balconies were different so it was fun to switch off. Beds were comfortable, areas were clean and both units were stocked with everything needed in bathroom, kitchen, entertainment and outdoors. We did not use the kayak, chairs or coolers but we did use the snorkel gear. The location is perfect for walking to Cruz Bay and on to the Lind Point Trail. Close to action but quiet and very safe. We will definitely consider this condo for future visits.

Top notch units in a great facility with even better location

I am only now writing this review due to the misleading review posted a few weeks ago. We rented the entire unit with our kids and 2 year old granddaughter. Our experience could not be more different than portrayed by the disgruntled reviewer. The units were very clean, well stocked and we had only one issue during a 10 day stay, and that was the air conditioner in the main unit began to leak one evening. That problem was reported and immediately responded to by the management.

We found both the owner, John as well as the on island management to be top notch and accommodating of all our needs. We rented our vehicle directly from the on island management folks and it was a wonderful full sized Tahoe. We used the kayak and the outside grill extensively and found the availability of the washer/dryer units to be a lifesaver.
The location of the unit within the building is great for the view and the facility location right next to the bars and restaurants was great as well.
We will undoubtedly return to this unit again if available. We have been coming to ST. John for over 30 years and have rented villas, stayed in hotels (Westin) and condos such as Gallows, Battery Hill and Lavender Hill. This one is the most convenient and it compares very favorably with Gallows Point.

We just completed our 3rd visit to the Jordan's condo on St. John and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves again. We cannot express how much we appreciate the maintenance and upkeep of the unit, the furnishings and many amenities which the Jordan's provide and the cleanliness and service provided by Laurie Crandall and her crew. Each time we stay there have been upgrades and/or changes in the furnishings, such as a new sleeper sofa in the living room and new mattresses on the beds. John Jordan and Laurie are always a pleasure to work with, before, during and after the stay. We also enjoy the pool (before and after going to the beach) and the location of the property is ideal for us. We often walk over to Honeymoon beach (through National Park) and have lunch at Caneel Bay. Honeymoon has great snorkeling and the beach is usually pretty quiet. The lunch at Caneel is a bit pricey but excellent in every way.
We like that we can easily stroll into Cruz Bay town whenever we want or need anything but the unit is removed from all town noise. Each time we have stayed we take both sides of the unit and our extended family have all been very comfortable. The only problem we have is getting ourselves to check out on time.

This was our third stay in the one bedroom studio at Grand Bay. We absolutely love it. We have again rented the studio for two weeks this summer for our fourth stay. Grand Bay has a wonderful location. Contrary to a previous review that I read the studio is always very clean and well maintained with high-end bed sheets, fresh beach towels and the kitchenette is well-stocked. The owner’s pride in ownership is obvious, most recently from the new high-quality mattress installed in the Studio just prior to our arrival. We can't wait to go back in June, we are counting down the days! The owner is wonderful to work with and takes very good care of his guests. We never hesitate to recommend his property. Enjoy your stay, you won't regret it.

This popular TWO or ONE bedroom condo is THE ONLY at Grande Bay Resort that comes with a sea kayak, snorkel gear, AND is offered as EITHER a two-bedroom, a STUDIO, or a one bedroom with King bed master suite.

The location of this luxury condo within Grande Bay is the closest of any to the pool and sun-deck. The two private front terraces command gorgeous Caribbean blue views, and the island artwork & furnishings inside the condo are spectacular. You can keep in touch with home, via WiFi and FREE LONG-DISTANCE calling to the USA!

This condo is a rare lock-out, not many at Grande Bay, and really the most flexible layout for owners and guests. You can rent the STUDIO side only, great for a couple, or the FULL, ONE BEDROOM side only, perfect for family of 3-4, or both, as they are separated by a lock-out door in between, like the best suites of major hotels. With both sides rented, we can sleep two families of up to 8, with 4-adults and 4-kids. We are family/kid friendly!

Other Activities: shopping, boating, parasailing, kayaking, mini golf, health/beauty spa
