Overview

Cruz Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Bath, (Sleeps 4-8)

'Somewhere In The Sun' is a one bedroom, studio or Two Bedroom luxury condo located in the new Grande Bay Condominium Resort on beautiful St. John -- the best of the U.S. Virgin Islands -- and the perfect spot for a romantic interlude for two or for a small family getaway. The moment you disembark the ferry on St. John you will be greeted by our on-island managers, escorted to your island home and begin your transport to 'another life' on our island paradise.

GREAT ROOM / BALCONY

The rattan furnishings in the great room including a sofa, side chairs, occasional tables, dining table for four, entertainment center with flat screen TV with cable channels, DVD player, and stereo with IPOD docking station. The sofa converts to a queen-size bed. Comfortable furnishings, artwork, accessories, and tile floors throughout bring everything together with a Caribbean flair.

Through sliding glass doors off the great room you can enjoy al fresco dining or cocktails on the 80 square foot, tiled, covered balcony with a view to the ferry dock and waterfront buildings in Cruz Bay harbor and, in the distance, Pillsbury Sound between St. John and St. Thomas with its beautiful azure water and sailboats tacking in the wind.

KITCHEN

The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen includes granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, as well as coffee maker, blender, toaster, teapot, dishes, glassware, cookware, and utensils -- everything you will need to prepare snacks for the beach, exotic island drinks, or a gourmet dinner. A breakfast bar overlooks the kitchen and separates it from the great room.

ONE BEDROOM SIDE / BATH/ BALCONY

The tropical decor continues in the bedroom/bath suite which features a king size bed, nightstands with reading lamps, chest of drawers, TV/DVD combo, and CD player. The ensuite bath has a large granite-topped vanity and a tiled shower. All linens and towels are provided and a washer/dryer and iron/ironing board are available for your use. A small covered balcony is located off the bedroom.

STUDIO SIDE / BATH/ BALCONY

The studio side has an additional bath and features a king size bed, nightstands with reading lamps, chest of drawers, TV/DVD combo. The ensuite bath has a large granite-topped vanity and a tiled shower. There is a kitchenette with mini fridge, microwave, blender, coffee maker and hot plate. All linens and towels are provided and a washer/dryer and iron/ironing board are available for your use.

EXTRAS

RESORT AMENITIES

A cascading waterfall runs in front of the large deck area at Grande Bay Resort. The deck features a pool and hot tub and overlooks Cruz Bay harbor with sailboats gently swaying on their moorings. You can relax poolside in the lounge chairs -- tanning by day, watching the sunset over St. Thomas at dusk, and viewing the sparkling stars at night. An air conditioned work out facility with new state-of-the-art exercise equipment (including Pilates machine) is located below the pool deck.

If you decide to rent a vehicle (reservations should be made in advance), a reserved parking space is available in the parking garage at Grande Bay. However, renting a vehicle is optional because of the convenient location of Somewhere In The Sun. You are within walking distance of the eclectic duty-free shopping and dining options in the town of Cruz Bay.

The small beach at Frank Bay is less than a 10 minute walk and Solomon and Honeymoon beaches can be reached on a scenic 30 minute hike. Many of the water sport activities originate right in Cruz Bay. Without a vehicle, you are within short walking distance of the VITRAN bus stop and the taxi stand, both located by the ferry dock.

Local taxis regularly provide transportation to the most famous of St. John's beaches on the north shore.

There currently is no requirement for U.S. citizens to have a passport when traveling to the U.S. Virgin Islands. If you wish to venture to the nearby British Virgin Islands, a passport is required.

Once again all I can say is that this place is paradise. Thank you so much for letting us stay here for our friends wedding. It was at Waterfront Bistro and it was a fantastic time.Me and Bry discovered THE BEST Chicken Ceasar salad. Erin discovered Bushwakers and I dont think I have ever seen her so happy and I had a few painkillers for Mike too... My favorite! Thanks so much again!

Weekend stay

  • 5 of 5
I have been to STJ on many occasions usually staying for a week. This year we chartered a boat for a week and stayed on STJ for 3 nights. I would highly recommend staying at Grand Bay and this condo. We did not want to rent a car but was able to rent one for the day through Grand Bay. The condo is located within walking distance to the shops, bars, restaurants and ferry in Cruz Bay as well as Mongoose Junction. The Condo was very nicely furnished, clean and the ac worked very well. We were during tropical storm Bertha. The staff kept us informed of the storm, provided us with umbrellas and flashlights. I would definitely stay at Grand Bay again and in particular this condo!

Clean and convenient. Love the location (close to everything) and availability of coolers, towels, chairs. CJ and Maria were so helpful with ideas and arrangements. Great spring break with our senior and sophomore. Biggest decisions each day were which fabulous beach to choose for snorkeling and where to have a fun dinner. Parasailing and Bad Kitty tour outstanding!

Absolutely perfect, great value

  • 5 of 5
The location was perfect. The studio more than fit the need of my husband and I. We travel to St John often and would love to rent this unit again. Having a balcony was great. We have stayed at other places, but would definitely rent this unit again. It was very clean and beautifully decorated. Having an in room washer and dryer was perfect, since we tend to travel light. The resort was beautifully kept, very clean.

Destination wedding travelers

The owner was very nice and responded promptly and made good suggestions for ways to make our visit to St. John better. The condo was very clean, well stocked and resembled the pictures on line. It is located close to town and is within walking distance of most shops as promised.

Condo unit we rented only had one bedroom and one bath with a sleeper sofa in the living room. It is advertised as suitable for 4 guests. Since the only bathroom is in the master bedroom, it would probably not work well for 4 non-related persons.

Also, property manager was not very responsive - we ended up having to call owner to confirm arrival plans and for AC issues because manager did not return our calls or texts promptly. Owner was prompt in telling us how to address issues but we had several hours of no AC when we could not reach manager. AC problem turned out to be something very simple - don't turn off light in entry way ceiling area as that controls AC as well. (Switch is on ceiling by AC filter). Once we knew what the problem was, we flipped the switch on and everything went well.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the studio. It was perfect for just the two of us. The refrigerator, coffee maker and washer/dryer all came in very handy! The room was very clean and big. We loved being able to sit out on the balcony in the morning before heading out to the beach. We didn't rent a car, since this property is so close to everything. We used the chairs for a day at Trunk Bay...just perfect! This place is absolutey worth every penny.

Great Room

  • 5 of 5
Grande Bay is a great place to vacation. It offers upscale amenities and is located centrally to Cruz Bay activities. We could walk to all the restaurants and bars in town and it is located close to the taxi stand which makes it easy to travel around the island. Parking was available if you had a car. The room was very nice and spacious with a seating area and kitchenette. The pool and spa area are great an offer amazing views looking over Cruz Bay Harbour and the town.
