Spanish for 'the nest,' El Nido (pronounced eL-NEE-doh) is a charming, spacious, one bedroom condominium with amazing panoramic water views. Just one mile from the center of Cruz Bay Town, the condo is situated within a beautiful tropical setting high on a hillside in a quiet neighborhood. This very convenient location on an easily accessible paved road, gives you close and simple proximity to beaches, hiking trails, restaurants and shopping.
El Nido has everything you will need to make your stay on St John relaxing and memorable. In this recently renovated, top floor unit you will discover a newly laid travertine tile floor, fresh paint, and an attractively remodeled and fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen features mahogany cabinets, quartz countertops, an elevated bar area with hand blown glass pendant lighting, and new appliances. A teak dining table and chairs set is the perfect complement to this beautiful space. The comfortable new mahogany and abaca weave living room sofa and loveseat provides the perfect balance for the now open floor plan. The separate bedroom encourages a restful night’s sleep with a queen size bed with orthopedic mattress, more fresh paint, a continuation of the travertine tile floor, beautiful artwork, and new linens that echo the blue of the Caribbean Sea. The remodeled bathroom and 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 that augment the constant flow of the trade winds through the many windows, the amazing artwork created by local artists who live and work on St John, makes us confident you will find the enhanced, 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 high elevation and location of the unit within the condo complex affords the covered, private deck of El Nido St John stunning, far and wide ranging water views.

About June Julian
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
Why June Julian chose Cruz Bay
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.
What makes this condo unique
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!
Guestbook comments from the owner
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.
