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...

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!
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!
