About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

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, As we are close to everything, a rental car is 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.

About The Owner

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 The Owner chose Cruz Bay

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pat, We are back from St. John and I wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed your condo, Palm Breezes. It was just perfect for us three "girls". The view was gorgeous, the location was excellent, and we did use the pool. The walk up the hill at night gave us a chance to work off our dinner and drinks. We did rent a jeep from Spencer's and went all the way to Coral Bay, twice. Driving was quite an experience, but I got used to it quickly. Enjoyed Hawksnest Bay, Trunk Bay, Jumbie Bay and Cinnamon Bay beaches. It is truly a paradise there. Can't wait to go back again. It was great renting from you and I would recommend your place to others. Thank you for helping to make it a wonderful vacation

We had a great stay at Palm Breezes! The location is fantastic. We enjoyed the close proximity to town and the amenities. We could sit on the patio and enjoy the sights and sounds of Cruz Bay all night. I would highly reccomend this condo!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

I vacation down in the USVI every year, and this is the second time for me at Pat's condo. It continues to meet all expectations, with a 5 star rating. Incredible view, walking distance to Cruz Bay, nice pool (usually it will all be to yourselves), bbq grill. Condo has everything you need,..cable and AC very dependable (the condo sets high up on the hill and gets an incredible breeze, so you will debate about using the AC). I was there in the rainy season, and got to take for granted the morning rainbow !

Great stay with a million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Palm Breezes! Beautiful condo perfectly located close to town with all the comforts of home. I can honestly say that I believe Palm Breezes has the BEST view of Cruz Bay. The condo is positioned on the top of the hill which provides stunning views out of every window. There is nothing better than waking up to that view. Highly recommend staying here, as long as you are willing to make the sometimes sweaty trek up the hill from town. But the view from the top is well worth it. We will be back!

Best deal on the island for us

  • 5 of 5

Our recent trip was the second time staying in this unit. It is perfectly located high enough for a gorgeous view of Cruz Bay but also near enough to town to walk to restaurants, shopping, and the grocery (Dolphin Market). We rent a car so that we can travel to distant beaches and there is ample free parking on site. The unit and pool areas are very well maintained and clean. Beach chairs, towels, and bags are provided as well as free on-site laundry. We would also make a huge recommendation to charter with Pirate Girl charters. It was the best day we've spent on St. John ever. She is an excellent tour guide and caters the day to your interests. Our kids enjoyed it as much or more that we did.

  • 5 of 5

I must say that we definitely were pleased with every aspect of this rental property. Beds are comfortable, decor appeasing and location fantastic! Well stocked kitchen and a view from every room, especially the balcony. I would highly recommend this vacation rental. One thing I would suggest is better lighting in the bathroom .And that's a simple fix ! Loved it!
