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.

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!

Perfect condo for our first trip!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to St John and we could not have been more satisfied! Tom's condo was the PERFECT location! You could walk to almost everything in Cruz Bay which was a huge help since parking is limited. The views were incredible from the condo and even though it was a condo, you felt secluded because of the quietness. The inside was updated and very clean! Tom was so easy to deal with and always responded quickly. We are definitely looking forward to coming back to St John and staying at Sugar n Spice!

The Hill's Condo is Ideally Located and Beautifully Appointed

  • 5 of 5

Tom and Betty Hill's Grande Bay condo served as a pefect base of operations after exploring the beautiful island of St. John. Located on Cruz Bay, the walk to restaurants and shops is literally five minutes away.

The condo was eceptionally clean, comfortable and well stocked with all the comforts of home. The pool/spa area was relaxing as well as the well equipped weight and exercise facility. Our family actually navigated the island quite well without renting a Jeep...taxis and hiking worked out perfectly for us....again, as a direct result of the condo being centrally located.

St. John's beaches are world class and absolutely breathtaking....Honeymoon Beach and Cinnamon Bay were two of our favorites. Trunk Bay, while gorgeous, was too crowded for our taste. A day trip to Virgin Gorda was a highlight (one of dozens) of our trip. The hiking is fun and intermediate at its most strenuous.

We will definitely rent from the Hills again and recommend their condo to all! Five well deserved stars from our family!

This one's a gem!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a comfortable, clean, well appointed, conveniently located studio apartment with an easy to deal with owner and an awesome greeter then look no further! This is the unit for you! We loved our stay in this studio. We felt like we had checked in to a really luxurious hotel. This was our first visit to Grande Bay and from the initial inquiry to the final checkout everything went smoothly. The owner Tom, our greeter Alex, and all of the staff at Grande Bay were a pleasure to work with. The facilities at Grande Bay are well maintained. We enjoyed the pool area and chatting with the very friendly other guests. The folks at the front desk were always smiling and helpful. This rental is truly worth the 5 star rating. We hope to return to it next year!

Sugar & Spice delivers as promised

  • 5 of 5

Thank You for a fabulous, clean, comfy stay in both units. Beautiful property with fantastic views. Being in town was convenient given the fact that we were traveling with 2 25 year olds. Common areas (pool and hot tub) were never crowded and residents were welcoming and pleasant.

Thanks again!
