Palm Breezes is back, fully restored after the hurricanes and better than ever!
Wonderful for an affordable family vacation or romantic getaway, Palm Breezes is a penthouse condo in the intimate Battery Hill complex. We are close to the best beaches, and a short walk to the charming town of Cruz Bay with its busy harbor, exceptional restaurants and unique shops. The complex has a sparkling pool with surrounding deck that offers splendid views of the Caribbean and has a gas grill and deck furniture for your use. We enjoy almost constant ocean breezes and sea views in three directions. We provide on-island management service at no additional cost.
The covered balcony is furnished for outdoor dining. It is perfect for sipping morning coffee and provides a beautiful view of the harbor, the town and open ocean. At night, it is a romantic spot for sharing evening cocktails and the twinkling lights of St. Thomas.
You will appreciate our new granite kitchen, beach rock shower and new tile floor. The soaring two story beamed wooden ceilings are gleaming white and provide a wide open feel.
As we are close to everything, a rental car is nice, but not necessary.
Comfort and Convenience: This condominium is brightly furnished in tropical décor, designed to put you in 'Island Mode'. You will enjoy the fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and a comfortable living room stocked with cable TV, VCR/DVD, stereo and a selection of books and games. The second bedroom is a large loft, and provides plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax. The MBR has a queen size bed, the upstairs loft is furnished with one queen and two single beds.
Nearby Beaches, Snorkeling, Hiking: The island of St. John is hilly and scenic, and boasts some of the best beaches anywhere. You can walk to Frank, Soloman and Honeymoon beaches. Trunk Bay, the most photographed beach in the world, is about ten minutes away, and offers a popular underwater snorkeling trail. Salt Pond beach is another sure fire snorkeling opportunity--we rarely leave without seeing amazing sea turtles. As over two thirds of the island is a national park, St. John provides many hiking opportunities, ranging from the easy to the challenging. Some wind past ruins of sugar mills; another takes you to an ancient pool and petroglyphs. Palm Breezes is the perfect spot to anchor your perfect vacation.

We are now empty nesters, a lawyer and a law professor, who very much enjoy get togethers with family and friends 'on island'. Our first trip to St. John was in 2002, we came back a year later with our two then teenage children, then purchased our property in 2004. We fell in love with the peace and beauty of St. John and knew we would always want to return.
Why Owner chose Estate Enighed
We wanted to be somewhere we would not be tied to a car--we do like to walk and from Palm Breezes it is an easy walk into town for dinner or just drinks at the Beach Bar. We also are mesmerized by the beautiful views, they melt away the stress of our NJ existence!
What makes this Condo unique
Being able to walk into town is a real plus. Also, if we decide to drive to a North Shore beach, and some want to head back earlier than others, the sun worshippers can stay as long as they like, as it is easy to catch a cab back into town and then walk home. We also love the beautiful pool and pool deck--the perfect place for an umbrella drink after returning home from the beach or to grill on a 'cook in' night.

Will keep coming back!
It was our fifth stay at this complex and our third in this unit. We keep coming back because of the location, the view, and the well managed care
Great view with cooling breezes!
Great place to stay. Cruze Bay is a small town with very little parking. While this wouldn't be accommodating to a person not able to walk the streets leading into town, it worked quite well for us. The views of the bay were always there to greet us. Would love to get this property again.
Great Stay - Second Time!
This was my second stay at Palm Breezes. First time with my sister, niece and nephew in Feb 2016 - this time with my husband and two teenage boys. The unit is exactly as described - fully and thoughtfully furnished - within walking distance of all the action (lsland style - laid back) that Cruz Bay has to offer. A few things that were different in July vs February. More mosquitoes - not enough to put me off, but I noticed them. Just bring or buy repellent, especially for early morning coffee or early evening cocktails on the patio. More bait pods encountered while snorkeling - huge 10s of thousands of silver bait fish at Trunk Bay!! We then swam right into huge tarpon feeding on them! And less...visitors, so shorter / no waits for dining.
The kitchen is so well stocked that I really suggest eating in dinner a few nights to save $$ - we bought rib eye steaks at Starfish Market and they were very reasonable. The grill and my husband did a great job with them.
The construction that began next door in Jan/Feb 2016 continues - we did not notice any noise, but the workers do park along the street making it essentially one lane. Just take your time and be prepared to pull over..or walk.
Wonderful stay again, I am already trying to figure out to get back soon.
Palm Breeze is the Perfect Place
Our family of three loved staying at Palm Breezes. Great views of Cruz Bay and so convenient to walk down into town for dinner. The condo was well equipped and comfortable and we liked that they provided towels, a cooler and beach chairs. We met some of the owners and everyone was so friendly. We really felt like we were coming home at the end of each day.
As a side note, Pat had mentioned that previous guests had had a good experience snorkeling with Pirate Girl. We also had a wonderful day with her, but please note that she goes by Flying Pirate Girl now. Thanks Pat for letting us stay at your island home! We plan to return!
Great Place with Great Views!
Place was clean and tidy and all the essentials that you may have forgot were provided such as towels, beach bags and beach chairs. We did not need a rental because it was so close to everything. Only negative is that it was up an unbelievably steep hill but the views at the top made it amazing!
The property is lovely! We didn't have a car the first 3 days so we got our exercise!
We did not want to leave this wonderful view that we got up to in the morning! The condo had everything we needed, even on our day trips, the chairs, towels, cooler and even sunscreen & Aloe:) Perfect for a family or two couples. Amazing time and would love to come back!
St. John is the smallest, friendliest and least developed of the Virgin Islands. From this condominium you are perfectly located to enjoy St. John's peaceful and beautiful views, its pristine beaches, warm fish filled waters and romantic outdoor dining restaurants.
Other Activities: Hiking, Bird Watching, Trips to Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola
