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**
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!
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.
It was hard to believe all of the phenomenal reviews that this location got. However, after staying there for a week, I can say now that they are all completely true, and that the view, as well as the condo, is even better in person. The pictures are not adjusted in any way. The condo is beautiful and recently updated. The view is outstanding no matter what time of day, and the breeze that comes through the windows makes the place cool and pleasant at any hour. June was very easy to deal with and provided some wonderful information. She always responded quickly to all communication prior to the trip. Peter and Gail were very helpful, and even mailed back my girlfriends bracelet home to us when they found it after we left. There is certainly not enough room for me to review the island of St John. But I can say with all honesty that it was paradise every day and that I will be returning soon, hopefully to stay again at El Nido! All my thanks to June as well as Peter and Gail for helping me make this trip a possibility.
We found El Nido on the web as we planned our first trip to the USVI. We corresponded with June as we planned our trip. We were quite pleased with Peter's assistance and recommendations upon arrival and with the very nice, well equipped accommodations and a view that can't be beat. I won't repeat what other reviewers have already said. We're bird watchers and photographers. We had excellent views of hummingbirds feeding and bananquits nesting right outside the door. We ate many meals on the balcony, breakfast was especially nice. The coin-op washer and dryer allowed us to pack light. The only drawback was that music from a nearby home one evening was loud (not in the condo complex). It stopped at 10pm. The jewel in the crown was when a snow storm closed our home airport in Boston, we needed to extend our stay. Peter and June found a way to let us stay for two extra glorious days on St. John. Thank you! We'll be back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Nido. We ate breakfast on the balcony every morning with the spectacular view. The owner provided a cooler and beach chairs which was so nice. There was no air conditioning, but it wasn't needed with the constant pleasant breeze. We also greatly appreciated having WiFi and a
drying rack on the balcony for our wet swimsuits. The caretaker met us at the ferry and drove us to our car rental company. He was available by text or phone all week with our questions. We can't wait to return to El Nido!
El Nido was the perfect location to be out of town but still close to everything. We rented a jeep (liked having an assigned parking space) and ventured all over the island. A great home base away from home. Peter was also a superb host and answered all of our questions. We would certainly come back and recommend this rental!
We found El Nido to be exceptionally well appointed with top quality furnishings and appliances (no dishwasher, which wasn't a problem for us). We did not rent a jeep but found the hiking trail behind the condo convenient to access town, Solomon and Honeymoon beaches. The tower on the Upper Lind trail provided stunning views of Jost Van Dyke, St. Thomas, as well as the Cays in the Windward Passage. The views from the deck of the condo were spectacular as well. We found the bus stop on Supreme Corner was great for getting to town or to Coral Bay if you wish. It is a very nice bus for $1. We found the bus time (at the corner) by watching for it from the balcony, though the schedule is published online (when it leaves from Coral Bay and Cruz Bay only).
Great place to call home. My girlfriend and I stayed for about a week and had a wonderful time.
We were greeted at the dock by Gail and she promptly brought us to our car rental outfitter (we rented from Bougainvillea Leasing and had a good experience, they also had parking in Cruz bay which was very helpful). From there the house had some welcome food and beverages which were very nice after a long day of travel. The grocery store was close so we stocked up that night as well.
The rest of the week was spent beach hopping along with some short hikes, we had breakfast at the house every morning and packed lunch most days... the cooler and beach chairs provided we're used every day of our trip. We also cooked dinner in a few nights which was nice, you couldn't beat the sunset. The house had a great cross breeze and the lack of AC was never an issue. At the end of the day we would go back and recommend to friends!
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.
