This couple has 3 married children who also enjoy hiking and snorkeling on St. John. He is an environmental engineer; she is a communications director.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2011

After years of exploring the Virgin Islands through bareboat sailing rentals, we chose St. John because of the spectacular scenery, the warmth of the island people, and the perfect weather.

We love the ever-changing vistas of the harbor: pelicans diving, sailboats coming and going. Hiking and snorkeling are our favorite activities. The proximity to town is another plus - we love leaving the car behind and walking to the many wonderful restaurants in Cruz Bay.

Wonderful Time on a Wonderful Island

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the Grande Bay Studio. The views from the condo were just as beautiful as described. This unit was located within easy walking distance from the rest of the town, making it easy for us to walk to dinner, the ferry terminal, the car rentals or the grocery store. The unit was clean and well maintained, and the decorations were bright and sunny. My wife and I enjoyed renting a car for one day and using it to explore the far reaches of this beautiful island. The rest of the time we had no issues getting a taxi to take us to any beach that we could have wanted. The restaurants on this island are somewhat pricey, but my wife and I found that the prices at the Dolphin Market are extremely reasonable as long as you don't get the "American" brand food. We cooked many a lovely dinner in the condo using the microwave and the one electric stove eye that was provided.

We enjoyed taking taxi rides to the beaches along the north shore, just make sure you bring a phone so you can call a taxi when you are ready to head back to Cruz Bay. Also, make sure you book at least one sailing trip out of Cruz Bay to enjoy the wonderful Caribbean Waters. The Dive Shop right next door is extremely helpful with setting up reservations and for helping you with your snorkel gear.

Pros:
1. Great Location
2. Beautiful Room and Comfortable Bed
3. Clean and spacious
4. Satellite TV
5. Great Guide Book Supplied by the owners to help you get around and find things.
6. Wonderful Soft Bed and clean linens.
7. Comes with a cooler.
8. Great views from the porch. Perfect for a late breakfast or a sunset dinner.

Cons:
1. Really close to the ocean side bars. Don't expect to go to bed early on the weekends. Just stay up late and enjoy the music and watch the stars.
2. The unit was missing spatulas and had only one stirring spoon. Not a deal breaker, just bring your own if you plan on cooking.
3. The room was too nice. We wanted to stay in bed all day and risked missing out on the wonderful beaches of St. John.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments.
We have purchased a spatula for your use next time. We are actually staying here in the studio right now for ten nights and, being at the far end away from the Beach Bar, have not lost any sleep to date.

Found Our Place to Stay in St. John

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place! We have visited St. John the last 5 summers and have finally found a place to repeat. Great location. Wonderful host and hostess in Laurie and Craig. Easy to rent and do business with Anna May. All the amenities were available. We didn't want to leave. Already thinking about reserving for next year!

Great Place to Stay!!

  • 5 of 5
This is was mine and my husbands first trip to St. John. This beautiful studio condo could not have been more perfect! Its very roomy with all the amenities we needed for our 10 day stay. We were picked up at the ferry and given a brief tour around downtown as well as the Grande Bay resort area. Perfect location to walking distance to everything in St. John! We even had a parking spot given to us for our jeep at no charge! One day our beach chair broke, we called and had a new one by that afternoon. Such a great experience! We loved our stay and can't wait to come back to visit!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
Being our first visit to St John, we can say that this studio condo was the best! The owners were VERY helpful in exchanging emails to set our trip up, and were helpful in extending our trip by a couple days. The studio apt was perfect for the two of us. The pictures don't do justice! The kitchenette has all the amenities for a small breakfast or lunch, and the washer/dryer unit was a big plus. You can't get any closer to the beach than this apt when staying at Grande Bay. Everything was perfect, even the beach chairs and small coolers that they provide. The onsite property manager picked us up at the ferry dock, (even though it's walking distance) and gave us a quick tour of Cruz Bay before dropping us off. Upon leaving, we both agreed that this was the only place to stay when visiting the USVI's, or BVI's. PERFECT location. Walking distance stores,bars, and restaurants, not even loud during the evening hours. Thank you so much, and we can't wait to get back!

Perfect location on Cruz Bay. Beautiful, clean studio with everything we need plus an amazing view! We returned for the second year in a row, so that says everything about how we feel about this amazing spot. Love the 1 minute or less walk to the Beach Bar and to the dinghy rentals. You don't need a car, as you can take the bus or a cab (or hitchhike) to Coral Bay/ Salt Pond Bay area, which we highly recommend. Are already looking forward to our 3rd annual trip. Thanks for allowing us to stay at your lovely villa.

A perfect stay in St John

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was perfect for our first trip to St John. The location was great, and even though we rented a car to have the flexibility to explore the beaches, it is really not necessary. One of our favorite beaches was Salomon Bay beach, just a short, easy hike away. From there, the Caneel resort is just next door, we really enjoyed having lunch and relaxing there for a couple of hours before heading back. It is also possible to take a cab back to the condo from there instead of walking. The condo itself was just as beautiful in person as in the photos. Just the right amount of space for the two of us. Having the washer and dryer was awesome and the kitchenette had all the basics we needed. Another great perk was having coffee and pastries every morning at the main office. The ladies working there were so nice and helpful. It was great to chat with them about our plans and get their recommendations at the beginning of each day, especially since this was our first visit to the island which was planned within 2 weeks! The rest of the Grande Bay staff was fantastic as well, very helpful any time we needed anything, and always with a smile! The owner was great to work with, she was really on top of things and gave us all the important information we needed before arriving. Hope we can come back soon and stay here again many times in the years to come!
