ONE DAY SCENERIO

Enjoy morning coffee lounging on 4 captain chairs on the balcony watching the boats and ferries and a full view of the ocean, harbor, and distant islands.. Then consider visiting world, top-10 Trunk Bay beach by car (your reserved parking space is next to the elevator) or use the taxi shuttle at the gazebo. At the beach, sink your toes in the sand, soak up the sun or lounge in the shade before a mid-day snorkel on the National Park underwater trail.

Stroll along the beach, doze, or read in your beach chair. Return to your place and dress informally for dinner at one of the many great restaurants, including Waterfront Bistro, Morgans Mango, Rhumb Lines, or Lime Inn, just a block or two away. All this and its just the first day of your vacation in paradise. Tomorrow you might drive or take the $1 new VItran bus to Salt Pond Bay, where sighting southern sting rays and green turtles is almost guaranteed. Hike up Ram Head for a glimpse of St. Croix 40 miles away before stopping at Shipwreck Landing or Skinny Legs for an afternoon rum punch.

Spend the evening on our balcony savoring Uncle Joe's take-out barbecue, watching the sunset and twinkling lights of St. Thomas - a perfect way to enjoy the evening. Tomorrow you might be ready for more snorkeling at Waterlemon Cay or Hawksnest. If it is Thursday or Sunday, you can take the 8:00 a.m. day ferry to Virgin Gorda to visit the Baths. On Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, another 8:00 ferry travels to Jost Van Dyke, where Foxys, the Soggy Dollar Bar, and the Blow Hole are attractions.

This 1-bedroom, 1 bath condo features a state-of-the-art kitchen with granite countertops, stainless-steel dishwasher and side-by-side fridge, microwave, blender, Keurig and standard coffee maker and toaster. A good night's sleep is guaranteed in the king-size bed. There is an ideal reserved parking space next to the elevator accessing the unit.

About The Owner

This couple has 3 married children who also enjoy hiking and snorkeling on St. John. He is an environmental engineer; she is a communications director.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Cruz Bay

After years of exploring the Virgin Islands through bareboat sailing rentals, we settled on St. John because of the spectacular scenery, the warmth of the island people, and the perfect weather.

What makes this condo unique

From our balcony, we enjoy the nonstop breezes and the ever-changing vistas of Cruz Bay Harbor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us!! We loved everything about it, especially the best parking spot on the island!! The views are incredible and the sunsets spectacular. We visited a new beach every day and saw some amazing sea turtles, sting rays and many beautiful fish on our snorkeling adventures. On our last day we rented a dinghy and had a glorious day on the ocean. We loved your condo and all its furnishings. It is truly beautiful but yet extremely comfortable at the same time. Thanks again!

The condo was well maintained and had every amenity needed on vacation. Very clean with great views

  • 5 of 5

From the second you step into condo, you feel right at home. The kitchen was fully equipped with all appliances and ample cleaning supplies. The spacious living room overlooked the marina with a wrap around patio. Comfortable chairs and chaise occupied the patio with an electric grill. The fold out couch has memory foam mattress which gives you a great night sleep. The large bedroom with onsuite allowed plenty of room along with the powder bath. Having a full size washer/dryer gave relief from dirty clothes and linen. All detergent was supplied.

It was a amazing place to stay and being so to all restaurants and bars was wonderful. Everything was within a short walking distance.

I had the pleasure of meeting the owners and was overwhelmed with their kindness and generosity! It will be a place I stay again. I greatly enjoyed my time there and give this villa a five star rating. Such a phenomenal experience that leaves me wanting to return as soon as possible!

Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

This property fulfilled all it's promises! We had cooler, snorkel gear, and rafts for relaxing in water on all the beautiful beaches. The pool was very nice too with a hot tub! This condo had the most comfortable beds, kitchen had all necessary gadgets and dishes we needed, and the view from the patio of the bay was outstanding. I really liked having the 1/2 bath as brought my son and friend so they had their private bath and didn't have to use the full bath off master bedroom except for showering. There were really no negatives to this place except we had to leave! The nearby restaurants were wonderful and loved the Jost van Dyke - The Soggy Dollar Bar sail trip that took us to White Bay which was beautiful too. All the people were very friendly at this resort. Loved it and hope to come back again!

High quality condo. Very comfortable. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

We loved watching the boats coming and going at Cruz Bay from the balcony. The bed was comfortable. It was nice to have a cooler and beach chairs for our use. We enjoyed walking to restaurants. The only down side is that the balconies are a bit close. The end unit is a plus.
