Overview

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 featuring amazing panoramic water views. Just one mile from the center of Cruz Bay Town, the condo is situated within a lush 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. Enjoy your morning coffee, an afternoon cocktail or dining al-fresco while absorbing the beauty of the ever changing seascape. As evening approaches take the time to relax and enjoy the splendor of the truly magical and unforgettable sunsets uniquely accessible to you from this secluded spot. You may find a desire to linger here as the stars come out 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**

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.

A Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to both St. John and to El Nido, and it won't be our last. We were met by Peter who guided us to the condo and answered all our questions. The condo is truly spectacular to say the least, georgous view from the deck, an amazing cooling breeze, all the comforts of home, clean, and at first sight you can see it has been recently renovated and the decor is just perfect beachy but classy!! The welcome basket was a nice touch along with the beach towels, chairs and cooler. The town is just a quick ride with so many places to eat and have a good time. The beaches are so beautiful and only a short drive, dont forget your snorkel equipment because each beach has fish to see. June our host was extremely pleasant to deal with she helped us with our questions and truly cares that your comfortable and enjoying your stay. We couldn't have asked for anything more it was a fantastic getaway.

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.

Beautiful and relaxing

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.

Map

Car: recommended

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.
