Great Cruz Bay Estates Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Bath, (Sleeps 4-8)

'Somewhere In The Sun' is a one bedroom, studio or Two Bedroom luxury condo located in the new Grande Bay Condominium Resort on beautiful St. John -- the best of the U.S. Virgin Islands -- and the perfect spot for a romantic interlude for two or for a small family getaway. The moment you disembark the ferry on St. John you will be greeted by our on-island managers, escorted to your island home and begin your transport to 'another life' on our island paradise.

GREAT ROOM / BALCONY

The rattan furnishings in the great room including a sofa, side chairs, occasional tables, dining table for four, entertainment center with flat screen TV with cable channels, DVD player, and stereo with IPOD docking station. The sofa converts to a queen-size bed. Comfortable furnishings, artwork, accessories, and tile floors throughout bring everything together with a Caribbean flair.

Through sliding glass doors off the great room you can enjoy al fresco dining or cocktails on the 80 square foot, tiled, covered balcony with a view to the ferry dock and waterfront buildings in Cruz Bay harbor and, in the distance, Pillsbury Sound between St. John and St. Thomas with its beautiful azure water and sailboats tacking in the wind.

KITCHEN

The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen includes granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, as well as coffee maker, blender, toaster, teapot, dishes, glassware, cookware, and utensils -- everything you will need to prepare snacks for the beach, exotic island drinks, or a gourmet dinner. A breakfast bar overlooks the kitchen and separates it from the great room.

ONE BEDROOM SIDE / BATH/ BALCONY

The tropical decor continues in the bedroom/bath suite which features a king size bed, nightstands with reading lamps, chest of drawers, TV/DVD combo, and CD player. The ensuite bath has a large granite-topped vanity and a tiled shower. All linens and towels are provided and a washer/dryer and iron/ironing board are available for your use. A small covered balcony is located off the bedroom.

STUDIO SIDE / BATH/ BALCONY

The studio side has an additional bath and features a king size bed, nightstands with reading lamps, chest of drawers, TV/DVD combo. The ensuite bath has a large granite-topped vanity and a tiled shower. There is a kitchenette with mini fridge, microwave, blender, coffee maker and hot plate. All linens and towels are provided and a washer/dryer and iron/ironing board are available for your use.

EXTRAS

RESORT AMENITIES

A cascading waterfall runs in front of the large deck area at Grande Bay Resort. The deck features a pool and hot tub and overlooks Cruz Bay harbor with sailboats gently swaying on their moorings. You can relax poolside in the lounge chairs -- tanning by day, watching the sunset over St. Thomas at dusk, and viewing the sparkling stars at night. An air conditioned work out facility with new state-of-the-art exercise equipment (including Pilates machine) is located below the pool deck.

If you decide to rent a vehicle (reservations should be made in advance), a reserved parking space is available in the parking garage at Grande Bay. However, renting a vehicle is optional because of the convenient location of Somewhere In The Sun. You are within walking distance of the eclectic duty-free shopping and dining options in the town of Cruz Bay.

The small beach at Frank Bay is less than a 10 minute walk and Solomon and Honeymoon beaches can be reached on a scenic 30 minute hike. Many of the water sport activities originate right in Cruz Bay. Without a vehicle, you are within short walking distance of the VITRAN bus stop and the taxi stand, both located by the ferry dock.

Local taxis regularly provide transportation to the most famous of St. John's beaches on the north shore.

There currently is no requirement for U.S. citizens to have a passport when traveling to the U.S. Virgin Islands. If you wish to venture to the nearby British Virgin Islands, a passport is required.

It was at Waterfront Bistro and it was a fantastic time.Me and Bry discovered THE BEST Chicken Ceasar salad. Erin discovered Bushwakers and I dont think I have ever seen her so happy and I had a few painkillers for Mike too... My favorite! Thanks so much again!

Wonderful condo for a wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

I rented both sides of the condo for a girls' weekend with 7 friends. The management team met us on the dock and escorted us to the property. They were friendly and efficient. The condo was exactly as described with everything we needed to be comfortable. There was even extras such as sunblock, bug spray, and some beverages in the fridge. Everything was nice and clean too. I couldn't have been happier!

a perfect spot on St John

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults, 2 teenagers and 1 child) utilized both condos for a week, both very clean, beautifully appointed. The nice, quiet environment is literally steps away from the beach and great spots to eat and drink, We opted not to rent a jeep and relied on taxis to go to one of the many beaches everyday. And after great long days on the beach we would hop in the pool. Nothing short of fantastic. The taxi stand is a couple of minutes away and we never had to wait to find a taxi in Town or at the end of a day leaving the beach to get back. I highly recommend this beautiful vacation home and will be a repeat customer.

Location excellent

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location right in Cruz bay and walking distance to restaurant and quick hike to Solomon beach. Nice property. Only advice for improvement would be a better mattress and new beach chairs. Chairs were rusty and came off on clothes. Otherwise very nice. Not lot of view from this particular unit.

Comfortable Getaway Condo Walking Distance to Cruz Bay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to St. John and the location of the condo could not be beat. While we rented a Jeep to get around the island, we didn't need it to go into town. Parking at the condo was easy and convenient. The condo (we had the one bedroom with full kitchen) was a great amount of space and we appreciated the in-condo accessibility of the washer/dryer. The staff meets you at the ferry dock and walks you over to check you in. The whole process was very easy and we would definitely recommend it as a place to stay.

Weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

I have been to STJ on many occasions usually staying for a week. This year we chartered a boat for a week and stayed on STJ for 3 nights. I would highly recommend staying at Grand Bay and this condo. We did not want to rent a car but was able to rent one for the day through Grand Bay. The condo is located within walking distance to the shops, bars, restaurants and ferry in Cruz Bay as well as Mongoose Junction. The Condo was very nicely furnished, clean and the ac worked very well. We were during tropical storm Bertha. The staff kept us informed of the storm, provided us with umbrellas and flashlights. I would definitely stay at Grand Bay again and in particular this condo!

Family of 4 with teenagers

  • 5 of 5

Clean and convenient. Love the location (close to everything) and availability of coolers, towels, chairs. CJ and Maria were so helpful with ideas and arrangements. Great spring break with our senior and sophomore. Biggest decisions each day were which fabulous beach to choose for snorkeling and where to have a fun dinner. Parasailing and Bad Kitty tour outstanding!
