GRANDE BAY 3 BR 'THE-NEST' CELEBRITY STYLE BALCONY & VIEWS

Cruz Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, (Sleeps 6)

'The Nest' with views of Cruz Bay (across the street) are magical. All amenities have been selected by the owners to create a five-star experience, complete with a property manager to greet you as your ferry arrives to answer any questions and provide any information you need. Having lived on the island for years, she can provide you with any resources you need to tailor your stay to your specific requirements. She will provide you with information and recommendations for car rentals, water sport rentals, how to find the perfect beach, walking trails or restaurants and must do activities.

'The Nest' at Grande Bay Resort is perfectly situated in the heart of Cruz Bay and you can walk to ferries, shops (including grocery), restaurants, bars, wonderful walking trails and some beautiful beaches such as Honeymoon Beach. You can also catch an open-air taxi which will

shuttle you around the island.

The Grande Bay complex sports St John's only heated pool and spa with a large deck, waterfall and waterfront gym with new equipment.

This three-bedroom home is situated on the corner and has AC, two king beds, two twin beds and a sleeper sofa. All bedrooms have very comfortable beds dressed in luxury linens, wall-mounted flat screen TV's, and I-Pod docking stations. There are two full bathrooms and an excellent floor plan which allows privacy when resting in the bedrooms and ample opportunities to socialize in the living area and patios.

The kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a wrap-around bar for seating. The dining area has a glass-top table and six chairs. There are magnificent views from the wrap-around porch which are visible also from the kitchen/living room. While seated on the patio enjoying your favorite beverage you can watch the ferry/sailboats navigate the harbor and the locals and visitors enjoying the Cruz Bay lifestyle.

This home is the perfect place to enjoy a luxurious stay while accessing some of the most pristine beaches, marvelous walking trails, or partaking of all the water sports you desire. You are only a ferry trip away from other islands should you wish to venture out.

The beauty of St. John is that you can do nothing or go all out and have the vacation of your dreams.

Matt is from the Midwest and Jenn is from the West Coast. We now call Minneapolis home, we are career oriented and love to visit St John when time allows. We've made many new friends on St John and truly enjoy every minute we spend on island. We hope you enjoy our island home as much as we do.

Matt purchased this condo in 2008

Location, location, location...we enjoy being within walking distance to all that Cruz Bay and St John have to offer. We are a short 5 minute walk from the ferry or walk down the beach to boat rentals and fantastic restaurants. Our unit is easily accessible by using one flight of stairs so we do not require the elevator.

Being less than a five minute walk to 10 different restaurants and shopping. Every morning we pickup the Lind Point trail and hike to Caneel Bay. We have a beautiful corner unit with a wrap around balcony where we enjoy many meals and the occasional evening cocktail hour.

Wonderful Condo and Location!

We have been to the beautiful island of St. John many times, but this was by far the best condo and location yet! Our favorite thing to do was sitting on the large wrap-around balcony letting the island breezes waft over us as we enjoyed the clear blue Caribbean waters lapping up on the beach in front of us. It sounds too good to be true, and it felt like it, too! The condo is large and well-appointed, and we were within walking distance of all of Cruz Bay's restaurants, shopping, and water excursions. You really don't need a rental car, which can be quite a savings, as it is easy to grab a cab to the beaches. There are also a couple of beautiful beaches accessed by a walking path. We plan to make our trip to St. John an annual one, and from now on, we will be staying at The Nest!

We cannot begin to tell you how wonderful our week at The Nest truly was!. It has been a long time since we have been able to get away, and what a perfect place to go. The island was incredible; the unit just perfect; the view, beautiful; the weather, 82 degrees every day??? It truly could NOT have been a better week for all of us. The pictures on your site only touched on how perfect the property was. We shopped, we dined, we strolled, we hiked, we fished, we danced...all within walking distance from The Nest. The most challenging part of our whole week was picking what we wanted to do next. Again, we simply could not have had a better time, short of a second week to do some of the things we didn’t get a chance to do. The place was PERFECT!! I would go back in a heartbeat, and I will SO recommend it to anyone that asks.

Owner's Response: Hi Mike,
Sounds like you were able to accomplish a lot during your stay! We enjoy The Nest's proximity to everything in Cruz Bay too. Hope you can make it back again soon. Best, Matt

Honeymoon Paradise

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 10, 2014

Matt and Jen,

Prior to our trip to "The Nest" in St John, we were told that St John would be the perfect destination for our Honeymoon. Needless to say, from the second we stepped off the plane, we felt like we were in paradise.

St John and "The Nest" were exactly what we were looking for, and exceeded our already high expectations.

The weather was perfect the entire week, with the exception of a 20 minute rain shower on the morning of our departure.

The beaches and water looked exactly like they do on postcards, if not even more beautiful. Our favorite beaches were Cinnamon Bay and Trunk Bay, although they were all simply amazing, especially considering their close proximity to Cruz Bay and the condo.

As advertised, the location of "The Nest" was A+. Our furthest walk to restaurants, bars, shopping, etc was 5 minutes, but our favorite spot "Beach Bar" was literally a one minute walk from the condo. We also enjoyed Banana Deck, Lime Inn, and a few other local restaurants in Cruz Bay, all of which were great dinner spots. Our favorite meal was at Zozo's at Caneel Bay, which was the only time we had to drive the entire week(with the exception of the 10-15 minute drive to the beaches).

All in all, "The Nest" was in a perfect location for everything. We enjoyed having coffee on the patio overlooking Cruz Bay in the morning, and enjoyed a cold beverage or two in the late afternoon/evening watching the sun go down on St John.

Thanks for making our Honeymoon so memorable...we definitely plan on returning to "The Nest" for future anniversaries!

So glad you found The Nest were able to make it part of your honeymoon. We share the same thoughts on restaurants and the in town location of The Nest. Congratulations on your nuptials and hope you can make a return trip! Best, Matt & Jenn

We have been vacationing on St. John for 24 years, and know the island well. We have stayed all over the island, and know the "housing/hotel" options well. Our first visit to "The Nest" was in its inaugural year...since then, we've lost count on how many times we've repeated at "The Nest". This has become our vacation home when traveling to St. John. We can choose to stay elsewhere, but why would we? The Nest is the most comfortable, best value, and best location on St. John. Can't wait for the next visit!!

Very Nice!

Very convenient to town. Very comfortable with clean and good quality furnishings. This is a corner unit in the complex just one floor up from the basement that is furthest away from the louder bars down the street (in case you want to sleep).The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and very roomy. The basement garage was a nice feature with the private storage area with a supply of beach chairs, etc. right next to your assigned parking place. If the complex allows them, a BBQ grill would have been nice on the porch. BIGGEST PLUS is that the property management company is excellent!

Owner's Response: Hi Jim,
Excellent to hear you had a good time! We do our best to keep the kitchen well stocked and your suggestion of a BBQ is great. I just ordered one that will will ship to STJ later this week. Thanks for the kudos to Laurie, we are lucky to have them. Hope you can make it back next year. Matt
