EL NIDO ST JOHN - NEWLY RENOVATED, BACK ON THE MARKET, MORE AMAZING THEN BEFORE

Cruz Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

Welcome to this One Bedroom Condo with Gorgeous Panoramic Waterviews!

Welcome to El Nido St John! We invite you to come and stay…. A comfortable, well appointed residence in paradise awaits you!

Spanish for 'the nest,' El Nido (pronounced eL-NEE-doh) is a charming, spacious, one bedroom condominium located within a lovely tropical setting high on a hillside in Estate Pastory. Just one mile from the center of Cruz Bay Town on an easily accessible paved road, this very convenient location affords you close proximity to beaches, hiking trails, restaurants and shopping while still maintaining its quiet, residential neighborhood feel. The higher elevation allows the private deck of El Nido St John to take the best advantage of stunning 180-degree water views and breathtaking sunsets. Relax and enjoy your morning coffee, an afternoon cocktail, or dine al-fresco while absorbing the beauty of the ever-changing vistas. From the peek-a-boo views of St Croix and Vieques, across the blue waters of Pillsbury Sound to the coast of St Thomas, then out to the Caribbean Sea and beyond, the scenic water views are awe inspiring. From your high perch you will also appreciate the constant flow of the trade winds that create wonderful cooling breezes across the deck and through the many windows.

El Nido has everything you will need to make your stay on St John relaxing and memorable. In this top floor unit you will find a newly laid travertine tile floor and fresh paint along with a newly renovated, fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen features mahogany cabinets, quartz countertops, an elevated bar area with molten ocean hand blown glass pendant lighting, and new appliances. The teak dining table and chairs is the perfect compliment to this beautiful space. The new addition of a very comfortable mahogany and abaca weave living room sofa and loveseat provides the perfect balance for the recently opened floor plan. The separate bedroom with queen size bed and orthopedic mattress displays more fresh paint and a continuation of the travertine tile floor. New linens give the bedroom a relaxing feel conducive to a restful nights sleep. The newly remodeled bathroom and installation of three new tropical themed ceiling fans completes our off-season improvement efforts. All this along with the original mahogany wood accents, lovely high cathedral ceilings, and beautiful artwork created by local artists who live and work on St John, makes us confident you will find the improved, open and airy interior of El Nido St John a very appealing, truly inviting space.

In addition to the attractive interior is the exceptional outdoor living space that El Nido provides. The covered, private deck is absolutely the golden egg in this nest! As evening approaches take the time to sit and enjoy the beauty of the sunsets that are uniquely accessible to you from the tranquil deck of El Nido St John. The sunsets that can be observed from here are an unforgettable, truly magical experience. You may find a desire to linger as the stars come out, the moon rises, and the lights begin to twinkle in the distance...

**El Nido St John is a smoke-free environment. Smoking is not permitted in the unit or on the deck**

Guestbook comments from the manager
Our stay here was wonderful. It was tough to get a taxi from the villa at first, but once we got used to it, and got settled, it was fine. We love the breeze and the view from here. El Nido is a nice comfortable place to stay. We’ve enjoyed ourselves and thank you for allowing us to stay in your villa. My brother’s wedding at Trunk Bay was beautiful and the island hopping we did the next day was phenomenal. Thanks again.

We were both born and raised on Long Island in New York. It took a long time for us to find each other and become a couple, so we are doing the best we can now to make the most of the rest of our time together. We may have missed some things due to our late start but life happens and we wouldn't have it any other way!

June Julian purchased this condo in 2012

While trying to escape the always cold, often snowy Northeast winters, we discovered the beautiful Virgin Island of St. John. Like so many others, we began visiting this lovely Island when disembarking from cruise ships porting in St Thomas. I fell in love with the Island almost instantly and clearly remember the day I was sitting in the sand at Trunk Bay and made the statement that St John was my favorite place on the planet. My husband's love affair began after we spent our first true vacation on St John in a wonderful guest house in Coral Bay. I think driving on the left was what convinced him! We love the people, the beauty, and the laid back atmosphere that is the true foundation of St John. The decision to buy was truly serendipity. The right place, the right property, the right time.

El Nido - The perfect size, a perfect view and a perfect location. There is no better feeling than sitting out on the deck enjoying the sunset and knowing we are truly blessed to be able to do so. We would love to share that feeling with you. For us it is about having guests come and stay at El Nido while enjoying the beautiful island of St John. Our goal is to make you feel the way we feel when we are here - to be so glad you chose this place and so happy to be just where you are!

We enjoyed our 2nd stay at El Nido in May. What a wonderful, peaceful, beautiful place to be! We felt so comfortable returning, it felt like coming home. June and John are so gracious and giving, always concerned that you are comfortable. They are so great with the "little things" that mean so much, Gail meeting us at the dock to get our rental car, then going to El Nido to make sure we were settled in, the meal waiting for us so we could relax that first evening.
At El Nido you are surrounded by beauty, cool breezes, and the views are magnificent. We enjoyed the deck each morning and evening, our favorite place to be! Driving to the beaches and into town was convenient and the driveway very easy to maneuver.The condo is extremely clean, comfortable bed, nice linens, everything you could possible need in the kitchen, lots of informative books on activities at St John, and nice chairs and towels for the beach.
St John is a very special place on this earth, El NIdo is the perfect place to enjoy it. We would recommend it to everyone, and we look forward to returning soon.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Where do I start? Location location location. Upon arrival we were greeted by Peter who got us settled in and gave us some great tips. There was a gift basket waiting for us with a nice meal so we did not have to go out as we arrived in the early evening. The view from the condo was spectacular and the area very quiet aside from the roosters and goats who serenaded us every morning. Beautiful evening breezes lulled you to sleep. The unit was perfect and very comfortable with nice ammenities and reminded us of a beautiful Caribbean cottage with a lot of island touches. Cruz Bay was an easy 1 mile drive and a great little town with plenty to do and see. We met a neighbor, a boat captain, who gave us the name of a boat for sunset cruise. Kekoa was the perfect sailboat and crew for our needs. The beaches are spectacular affording us our most relaxing vacation ever. I highly recommend El Nido hope to return there in future.

Heaven On Earth

  • 5 of 5
The accommodations were exactly as advertised, but even better than expected. The whole apartment was very clean and well cared for. The views from the front deck were gorgeous and we enjoyed being close to Cruz Bay, the center of all activity on the island. While we were close to Cruz Bay, you really would not want to be at El Nido without a car. But since we wanted a car to explore the rest of the island, that was no problem. The owner (June) was a pleasure to deal with and her on island manager (Peter) promptly met us at the ferry dock, transported us to our car rental agency, and led us to and got us acquainted with El Nido.

El Nido was well equipped with a number of local guidebooks and maps, not to mention a three ring binder of information about area restaurants and activities. It came with a number of appointments that really helped us out when it came to packing lighter - for instance, a cooler, beach towels, beach chairs and a hair dryer. The kitchen had everything you need in the way of pans, glassware, plates and utensils.

If you plan to cook in the kitchen, we recommend the fresh seafood from the sea food market at The Fish Trap. The Starfish market has a decent selection, but the prices are high enough to make you reconsider eating out. ? If you are a couple traveling alone, I don't think you could find a better place to stay than El Nido.

We loved El Nido, and hope to visit again when we return to St. John. The home was beautiful and clean. The view of St. John and St. Thomas from the porch was stunning. The pool was refreshing, and the beach was located very near by. El Nido was everything we hoped for, and more. It was hard leaving. Highly recommended.

STAY HERE!

  • 5 of 5
Where do I begin. First, June the property owner was just so delightful. I had a last minute travel issue and luckily her beautiful rental was available. She not only put my mind at ease but she stayed in touch throughout my stay via e-mail. You will see it will feel like you are renting more from a friend than a stranger. The price for the space was just very reasonable considering what you get. What do you get you ask? Read on!

June sends you more information that you could imagine for your trip. Everything from taxi/ferry schedules to the "do's and don'ts" of the islands. She also has a team (Peter and Gail) who whisk you away from Cruz Bay dock. You start with a bug hug from Gail (well I did, I'm a hugger) and great conversation until you reach the market. Yes, they stop at the market for you! After a brief stop at the market we make our way to the condo, mind you it is an 1.25 mile journey from Cruz Bay. Yes, that's it! You are not far from all the amenities Cruz Bay offers but you are far enough (and high enough) to enjoy some peace and tranquility. The condo is just what you would want, imagine, build for yourself. Subtle wood and beige walls with beautiful water color paintings and floral pattern furniture make this place just pop when you walk in. You have a full kitchen (we cooked every day) and your own private deck/balcony to watch the sunsets. YOU WILL WANT TO BE HOME FOR EVERY SUNSET! Grab some of the amazing gift basket food items (yes June thinks of that too) play your favorite island music and just relax and watch the sun go down. The bathroom was perfect. Wonderful shower and plenty of things there that you may have forgotten. Again, it really feels like a friend's house! Sunscreen, bug spray, beach towels, soap, shampoo it's all there if you need it. We found ourselves reading some of the books on the island at night and planning our next day of adventures. If you are adventurous you can walk to town and back. It's really not that bad of a walk if you are physically fit and active. If not, be sure to rent a jeep! Great way to see the island. My gal and I are triathletes so we spent most of our time hiking and swimming. We had breakfast every morning on the deck and just spent more time relaxing in our little home there than anything else. Do yourself the favor, stay here, leave happy.
Spread the love.

Owner's Response: We are happy we were able to "rescue" your Christmas trip. We try our best to portray an accurate description of El Nido in our listing so there are no surprises when our guests arrive. Affirming that it felt more like staying at a friend’s house then renting from strangers means a great deal to us. We make every effort to ensure our guests feel comfortable and it is rewarding to know that you believe we succeeded. Thank you so much and it was a great pleasure to have you as our guest.

St John claims some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Enjoy sunbathing on stunning powdered sand beaches. Swim and snorkel in crystal clear waters among brightly colored tropical fish over amazing coral reefs. Hike trails to see ruins or ancient petroglyphs while enjoying the lush and varied tropical vegetation. Consider a motor or sail boat charter, truly a wonderful way to experience the real beauty of the Island from above and below the water.
