Great Cruz Bay Estates Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Enjoy the beauty of the untouched, protected island of St. John, while enjoying the convenience of staying near some of the best shopping and restaurants in the Caribbean.

Imagine your stay at the Grand Bay Resort, St. John's newest luxury condominium development located right in the harbor of Cruz Bay. From your 1BR/1BA condo, enjoy sweeping views of the beautiful turquoise water in Cruz Bay, lounge on your large, breezy balcony as you watch the St. John Ferry arrive and activities at the local beach bar while listening to nightly concerts of Caribbean music.

When you venture out only 5 minutes you will find excellent shopping, fantastic restaurants, and affordable transportation to the untouched, protected beaches of the St. John in the National Park.

Take a 20 minute nature walk to two of St. John's most pristine and private beaches, Salomon and Honeymoon Beach or rent a dinghy right outside of your condo and boat the whole north shore of St. John.

A 2 minute walk from your condo to rent a jeep and you will explore the full beauty of this 'untouched' island. We have you covered with available beach towels, chairs and coolers. Don't worry about the parking, we have a reserved parking spot just for you at your Cruz Bay condo - a rare commodity in downtown St. John.

Prepare a gourmet meal in your brand new, fully equipped kitchen with its granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Washer and dryer, bar area, queen size sleeper sofa, flat screen TV w/DVD, and IPod docking station are also included for your use.

Bring with you a desire to get away from it all, see the natural beauty of this island and leave your cares behind. We have the rest covered!

About John Story

We went to St. John for the first time in 1989 and fell in love with the island’s beauty and atmosphere. During the past 20 plus years the island hasn’t changed much. Our favorite activities on St. John are spending time on Salomon Beach, exploring the island with a car, snorkeling, hiking, renting a dingy and boating the North Shore and enjoying the wonderful restaurants.

We purchased our condo in 2003 and have loved it ever since. Every time we stayed on St. John we stayed away from Cruz Bay and then had to drive to Cruz Bay in the evening for dinner and the activities. We love Grande Bay because we can walk to everything in Cruz Bay and Salomon Beach.

John Story purchased this condo in 2003

Why John Story chose Cruz Bay

We purchased our condo because of all of the islands we visited, St. John was our favorite. The main reason we love this island is because 2/3 of the island is national park. Even though this island will become more populated, there will still be great beaches and scenery for a long time to come because of the protected areas in the National Park.

What makes this condo unique

We purchased our unit because it is in Cruz Bay with a parking space. We usually rent a jeep and now we always have a place to park in town. We love having dinner in town and shopping the local stores. We also can walk to our favorite beach, Salomon Beach.

Beautiful condo, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have visited St John several times and love to stay at Grande Bay condos. St. John is the perfect mix of prestine beaches and layed back atmosphere and this condo is right in the heart of Cruz Bay, making it an easy walk to dinner and the night life scene. The condo is beautifully decorated, spacious, and even nicer than the pictures show! The owner, John, responded quickly and was very easy to work with. We hope to return soon!

Wonderful stay!

Most beautiful place I have ever stayed in St. John. Absolutely immaculate and a perfect location. My husband had never been to St. John before and now he can't wait to go back.

Thank you to John and Diane for sharing their lovely home.

Great place for our 1st extended stay on St. John

  • 5 of 5

This unit was the perfect spot for us as first time extended visitors to St. John. We own a timeshare so was expecting the basics of a kitchen and laundry but not all the details of full coffee and sugar canisters along with detergent and fabric softener and shampoo with conditioner in the shower. Since I did bring our own supplies we used them and left the extras for the next guests.

It was great to use the 3 beach towels and chairs. Happily surprised to find the pool noodles and fins too. We also used the Grand Bay concierge to rent a car during our stay since we didn't plan for that in advance. Very convenient and affordable!

We were met at the ferry and shown right to the unit and got a quick walk through of all the amenities. The location was just so convenient to everything. We had a great time and were very sad to have to leave. We’ll definitely be back again someday!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I returned yesterday from a 12-day stay at this wonderful condo. This was our first trip to St. John, and we couldn't have selected a better place. The size and layout of the condo were perfect for us, and we loved being right in Cruz Bay. The bed and furniture were very comfortable (my husband is 6' 6" so this isn't always the case.) The owner was very helpful as we planned the trip, sharing tips and information that he has accumulated over the years. The only thing that could have been better was the view from the balcony, but we knew that ahead of time and it didn't matter to us.

Best Vacation Ever!

We had a wonderful time on St. John and really enjoyed your condo. I'm not sure when, but we definitely want to return for another visit. We had perfect weather. Your condo is in a perfect location. We had breakfast every morning on the balcony and walked to dinner every night...loved everything about it! Thanks!
