Cruz Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-8)

Welcome to our brand new two bedroom, two bath condo in the new Cruz Bay luxury resort, Grande Bay. Our condo can be rented either as a large two bedroom unit ('Sugar N'Spice'), sleeping up to eight people, or as a one bedroom unit ('Sugar') or studio unit ('Spice') each sleeping up to four people. We are currently offering s introductory discounts to introduce you to our home. Grande Bay is a 48 unit resort directly on the water and only a three to five minute walk to 'downtown' Cruz Bay with the ferry and all its restaurants, bars and shops. We have spectacular views of the Caribbean and harbor with St Thomas in the distance from both balconies. We have an especially good location within Grande Bay. We are on the second floor (really the third floor since the garage is the ground floor) of the rear Building C closest to the pool and away from town. It is quiet, private and has great panoramic views. Use our apartment as your base to explore the most magnificent island on earth.

Our large two bedroom unit comes fully equipped with high end furnishings in the Caribbean style. We have a very unique and welcoming floor plan. On one side of the condo is a traditional one bedroom apartment ('Sugar'), complete with master bedroom with a king sized four poster bed, dresser, desk and its own balcony. It also has a flat screen cable TV. We then have a living room with queen sleeper sofa, and there is an elegant glass-topped dining room table. You can eat there or on the magnificent balcony looking out over the water. Or you can sit on the stools at the granite kitchen counter overlooking the fully equipped stainless steel kitchen. In the evening, enjoy the 40' flat screen cable TV with Blu-Ray or our stereo with CD player or just sit on the balcony and enjoy the view.

Our second bedroom is really a connected studio apartment ('Spice') with its own bath. We have a Caribbean style king bed in the sleeping area and a queen sleeper sofa and table in the living area of the studio, complete with its own second 40' flat screen cable TV and stereo. The studio has its own balcony with the same magnificent views. We also have a separate small apartment sized kitchen with sink and small refrigerator and a separate apartment sized washer and dryer. The one bedroom side and the studio are internally connected to form a large two bedroom apartment, but both also have their separate outside entrances and the internal door between them can be left open or closed Each side sleeps up to four people (four in beds; four on sleeper sofas), so we are perfect for a family or two couples or families traveling together. And you can rent the condo in its entirety as the full two bedroom or separately as either a one bedroom apartment or as a studio apartment.

Use our apartment as your base to discover the paradise that is St John! If you rent a car, park in our garage beneath the building (parking is at a real premium in Cruz Bay). After a day at the beach, come relax pool side or sit in the hot tub and soak in the view. Or if you want to be more vigorous, come work out in our state of the art fitness center with the best views imaginable. In the evening, walk to one of the many bars or restaurants in town, or listen to music at the Beach Bar, just two minutes away. Or get some of the best and cheapest barbecue ever from Uncle Joe's and sit on the balcony and watch the sun set as you eat your dinner. So many terrific choices! But most importantly, just relax and enjoy this very special spot. We are certain that you will love St John and Grande Bay as much as we do -- it would be virtually impossible not to.

Amazing vacation in amazing condo

  • 5 of 5

Amazing vacation! Condo is perfectly located for access to town, beaches, restaurants, groceries, etc. It is extremely clean and all essentials are included (paper products, cleaning products, washer soap, etc). It even includes free long distance phone service so you can check on things back home. It is updated with newer furniture throughout and the kitchen is complete with more dishes than you will use. The pool and hot tub were also very clean. The view is beautiful and the proximity to the ferry makes the trip easy. Upon arrival by ferry, you are greeted personally and escorted to the condo. Everything in Cruz Bay is within walking distance. To travel the island, we rented a car from St John Rentals. The parking assigned to this condo is right out your door! The owner Tom is very easy to work with and responds quickly to any questions. He provides many suggestions of places to go and things to do and we enjoyed them all. Every beach is gorgeous and the snorkeling is a must. Tom provides beach chairs, coolers and noodle floats! Along with sunscreen, pack some bug spray for the noseeums! Other than those pesky bugs, the island wildlife is unbelievable ...cats, dogs, goats, roosters, chickens, iguanas, deer and donkeys! We saw 15 donkeys playing on Salomon Beach. You won't see the frogs but you will hear them singing at night. And then there are all the underwater sights....coral, conch, urchins, turtles, stingrays and even the occasional nurse shark. Make sure to walk around the many ruins of sugar plantations. Everyone on the island was very friendly and accommodating. We always felt safe walking around. Even driving on the left side of the very hilly roads wasn't difficult. We definitely want to return...maybe longer next time and will stay at this condo again. If you like relaxing beaches, good food and drinks, make your reservation with Tom!

Nice spacious condo on Cruz Bay

  • 5 of 5

I've been to St John many times. The Grande Bay resort was new to me. I rented this condo from Tom and loved it. There are two sections you can rent - a one bedroom condo w/living area, kitchen, bedroom, two balconies; and the other unit attached (think adjoining hotel room) is a one bedroom smaller unit. The unit had everything we needed - washer/dryer, plenty of towels, kitchen was fully stocked (we didnt cook but you could easily make meals there), beach items (flotation, coolers, etc), great views of Cruz Bay from the front balcony.

The location is perfect. You can walk to most anything in Cruz Bay (restaurants, shops, grocery store, hiking trails). no need to rent a car unless you want to explore the entire island. you can take taxis to the beaches.

The concierge service that comes with the rental is amazing. If you've never been to St John, the process to arrive and orient yourself can be challenging. The concierge proactively reaches out to you well in advance of your trip to see what you need. They meet you at the ferry dock and escort you to the condo. They can arrange anything for your - boat charters, restaurant reservations, sightseeing, give advice, etc. At no cost to you.

Tom was a responsive owner and provided great service. I would highly recommend this condo and would come back again.

Very nice, clean and updated property. Great view!

  • 4 of 5

Nice location, easy walk to all the shops and restaurants in Cruz Bay. Wonderful morning and evening views of sunset and sunrise. Very clean property with underground parking. Pool area was nicely maintained. The sleeper sofa is a bit uncomfortable, but the bathroom is large, bedroom is large and kitchen was fully stocked with appliances and dry goods left by other renters. Would definitely rent again!
