About Christine Obbagy

The owners of this condo have been visiting this island for 10 years and wish to share their condo with the world. The beauty of the Caribbean Sea, the beauty of the Island and the hospitality shown by the people that live on this Island are the reasons that we purchased this condo.

Christine Obbagy purchased this condo in 2003

Why Christine Obbagy chose Cruz Bay

We fell in love with the Island of St John the first time we visited in 1999. The location of this condo is perfect as it is a short 3 minute walk from the Ferry Dock, shopping and most restaurants. The Island itself is over 2/3 National Park with approximately 30 pristine beaches without a hotel to be seen.

Great condo, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great, the staff was always available and helpful. The location to everything on St John was perfect. It was an easy walk from the condo to the taxi station and all shopping and restaurants. The view and sound from the balcony was wonderful. I highly recommend this condo and St John. There's plenty to do, we always felt safe and the island is just a relaxing place to get away from it all.

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

From scheduling to our arrival, both Christine and the property management Agent, Alex, were excellent. The place is new, clean all delivered in a beautiful view. We rented snorkeling gear and it was waiting for us in the condo. Restaurants are very good....little expensive, but this is St. Johns. Zozo's has a beautiful location and the Beach Bar is a great place to meet people. There is really nothing I could say for improvements, other than let me become Christine's best friend for life:) This is my second time, but not my last and Christine's will be my choice for housing. Enjoy.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the studio for a week (wish we had stayed longer) and loved every minute of our stay. It is very clean and has everything needed to be comfortable. Truly a home away from home.

The view is fantastic, right across from the harbor beach. We watched pelicans diving for fish every morning while enjoying coffee on the balcony.

The location is perfect, restaurants and shops are all within walking distance. We did rent a car for a few days and a parking space was provided. It was very quiet and peaceful and the perfect place to recharge and relax. Highly recommended!

Absolute best place to stay in St John

  • 5 of 5

The condo was absolutely the best place to stay in St John. We traveled with another couple and the the way the condo is set up for a 2/2 is perfect for 2 couples. Both couples are provided privacy by being able to close the both connecting the main condo with the suite. The condo is located in the perfect location. You are in walking distance to all the bars and shops in Cruz Bay, which makes evening hang outs much more relaxing. No need to worry about driving through the St. John hills at night time. Our typical day was as followed: wake up and go get a cup of coffee and danish from the main lounge area, then enjoy the view of cruz bay while we sipped our office. next we would take our rented jeep and paddle board (rented from to the different beaches on St. John (Maho being our favorite) and in the afternoon return back to condo, park the jeep and walk to the bars, restaurants and shops in Cruz Bay. We particularly liked Mongoose Junction- Tap Room (beers and Apps), Sun Dog (decent food, prices) and in Cruz Bay- Beach Bar & High Tides. Our Market Smoothies is another must stop. Fresh Coconuts with rum added!

Overall I would rent this condo time and time again. The location is prime and the condo itself is modern, up to date and the view cant be beat!! Thank you Christine for making the condo rental transaction go so smooth! Looking forward to renting again in the near future!!
