Cruz Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

STOWAWAY is a breezy two story unit; excellent for two couples or a family. It is part of a small, 8 unit group known as VILLAS ON THE UPPER DECK. It is located just above town, making car rental optional. Three grocery stores are a short walk away.

The first floor consists of living, dining, kitchen, laundry, half bath, dining deck, front deck, and entry. The upper floor has two very separate bedrooms each with its own bath and deck. One bedroom has an added sleeping loft.

Gardens, tropical trees and a new pool create a West Indies feeling. Views are wonderful.

You will be met at the ferry, taken to the grocery and settled into your villa by a native, who will be able to answer all your questions and be available by phone during your stay.

Keywords: Cottage-like West Indian town house with great views. Affords privacy for two couples or a family.

As a yacht designer married to a yacht dealer, I have sailed most of the Caribbean. St John is by far the best place to live and vacation. If it isn't first in some particular category, it is surely 2nd or 3rd. I have my home, Callaloo, mid island on St John, and I keep my boat in Coral Bay. This villa has been a permanent residence until now. This year it was completely refurbished, and I'm offering it below market to jump-start the vacation rentals.

Before buying in St. John, I considered settling on St. Barths. I weighed the pros and cons of each place. St. Barths offers a bit of Paris (a place I adore), but St. John offered a lot more of everything else. Dependable, affordable phone and internet service, 22 beaches, good dining (although pricey), affordable air fares, hiking trails, and the heavy hand of the US Government which keeps St. John safe, beautiful, and accessible to all. We respect nature, wildlife, beaches, reefs, and the sea. We adore our wild donkeys!

Great Value on St. John

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 spent 9 relaxing nts in March at the Stowaway. The lay out worked well for us. 2 kids shared the spare room and our younger one slept in the loft in our room. Condo is clean & comfortable and well stocked (coolers, beach towels, beach chairs & umbrella were much appreciated!). Condo is perched on hillside with about 10 other units overlooking Westin - spectacular view! My husband booked with Cruz Bay Divers at the Westin for scuba diving. It was nice to be relaxing at the pool and see his dive boat pull up at the dock and know when he would be back to the condo shortly. Markets & town are quick 5 min drive. North shore beaches are about 15-20 minute drive - very convenient. Marcia was very helpful prior to the trip (we opted to rent car at STT and car ferry over on her advice- worked well). Our greeter, T-bird (the local songbird on the island) was so friendly and offered her number during our stay (which we did use to text her and ask a couple of questions). I looked at all kinds of properties for our stay on STJ. I was so glad I chose this one once we arrived - location (close to everything, yet quiet and peaceful), value (everything on STJ is expensive so the price was right on this condo) and that beautiful view!

Great February escape from Michigan!!

  • 5 of 5
We so look forward to our annual visit to Stowaway! Owners Georgia and David are wonderful hosts and take care of all our needs! Marcia is always so helpful with our reservations and any pre-trip questions. The views are breathtaking, the beaches beautiful and the people of St. John are very friendly! Every beach has it's own charm and we are always discovering something new! The island is rich in history and highly recommend reading 'Night of the Silent Drums'. Already looking forward to our next visit!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
We have been to St John and St Thomas ten times over the course of thirty years, and have stayed at several different venues (hotels, campgrounds, villas, etc). But we will have to say that getting to know Georgia and David here (and their little piece of paradise) was quite a treat! They treated us like family, and were most accommodating. It was so nice to have everything clean and in working order. We only wished we could stay longer than the two weeks we were here. We hope to visit again soon. Thanks again!

RELAXATION WITH A VIEW

  • 5 of 5
Another wonderful week away from the cold and snow. Our 4th year at Stowaway which has become our "home away from home". Georgia and David continue to out do themselves to make your stay perfect. Everything we needed and more. Sitting on the deck overlooking the island made us forget about the almost 100 inches of snow back home. Over the 14 years we have visited St. John- Stowaway has proven to be our favorite place to call home while in paradise. Love the bedrooms being upstairs and sitting on the upper decks overlooking the lights of St. Thomas and St. John while enjoying the evening breezes after a day in the sun. A perfect stay again.

Spacious, Well Appointed Property with Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four spent 5 days at The Stowaway. The unit was absolutely perfect for our family- well-appointed, clean, comfortable, and spacious. We really appreciated the well stocked kitchen supplies and the thoughtful amenities that were provided, such as shampoo, laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, etc. Our favorite part of the unit was the outdoor living spaces- decks off the first floor main living area and decks on the second floor off of both of the bedrooms. The views from the unit and the decks are absolutely stunning. The owners of the property are very friendly, helpful, and gracious and were available at any time if we had any questions. I would highly recommend this property for a family or two couples. We absolutely loved it and hoped to return in the future.

Perfect Vacation for a Celebration and Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5
I decided I wanted to celebrate my 30th birthday on St. John and, after this trip, I couldn't have imagined being anyplace else. It was perfect! I would describe Stowaway as a very clean and comfortable property. It had everything we needed! We really appreciate the extras including the beach chairs, noodles, and cooler. After being delayed two days in arrival, once we walked through the front door, the views were breathtaking.

I would highly recommend renting a jeep at the airport and stopping for provisions at the Food Center on St. Thomas (much more affordable than on St. John). It is more cost effective when traveling with a group. The directions from the airport to the ferry dock were great. T-Bird was awesome and met us at the ferry dock to guide us to the condo- some steep and winding roads, but were amazed at how close to town we were! Stowaway is in a great location- about a 5 minute drive to Cruz Bay and 20 minutes to the Northshore beaches.

Our vacation was very low-key and stress-free. We went on an adventure to Coral Bay, then ended up at Cinnamon Bay for the rest of the day. We beach-hopped from Hawksnest to Trunk and Cinnamon. Snorkeling was incredible at Trunk Bay. Our favorite, by far, was Cinnamon Bay. We appreciated the use of the beach towels, beach chairs, noodles, and cooler! We cooked breakfast and packed lunches/drinks in the cooler every day. We brought some frozen chicken and steaks with us, so we took advantage of the gas grill a couple of nights. The nights we did not cook in, we went to Spyglass (delicious fried key lime pie), Waterfront Bistro, and Ocean Grill (our favorite meal and the freshest fish- we saw the guys carrying them through the restaurant straight from the dock!) T-Bird was also singing at Ocean Grill the night we were there- she was great! We also partook in Woody's famous Happy Hour a couple of afternoons!

Overall, we had a wonderful trip. Even with our delayed arrival, we had a great time. Marcia, Georgia, and T-Brid were all extremely responsive and a wealth of information. THANK YOU!! They truly want you to love the island as much as they do and its very hard not to! We were very depressed leaving and will definitely be back in the near future and would love to stay at Stowaway again.
