Enjoyable but....

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Jackies penthouse on St. John. We had rented this unit before so we knew that it would be comfortable and have all the amenities of home. Where it is located right in the center of Cruz Bay and we were able to walk every night to our favorites restaurants and even to the Dolphin supermarket. The only problem we had was the airconditioning. When we arrived the temperature inside the condo was 88 degrees! Although we worked with Susan ( property manager) and Jackie the problem was not fixed until Friday-the day before we left. I will say that due to their diligence, we had the air condoning recharged every night so that we could sleep comfortably. I just love the penthouse and would rent again.

Outstanding visit to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My goodness what a wonderful place to stay in St.John! Jackie was awesome preparing my wife and I with information for our trip that helped things go so well. Susan was right there to pick us up at the Cruz Bay ferry dock and helped get us orientated with the town and Grande Bay Resort. We walked into a wonderfully decorated and spotless home. The view of the island and sea was incredible. We found everything we could need in the home and the bed was so comfortable. We enjoyed the Cruzan Rum and cold beer left for us in the fridge by Jackie upon arrival. The town of Cruz Bay has everything you need for food and shopping. The people that live on the island were wonderful and we felt so safe at all times. We did not rent a car the taxi's are everywhere with average cost to a beach around $7 per person one way. We always found a taxi waiting when leaving any beach to come back to town. We snorkeled every day and found Cinnamon Bay to be one of our favorites, don't miss Trunk bay as well. The hike out of Cruz Bay that starts at the USVI National Park down to Solomon Bay (about 1-mile) was fun and the we had the beach to ourselves with great snorkeling and shady palm trees. When arriving back from the beach a dip in the pool was great! Our favorite restaurant was steps away from the Ferry Dock called Uncle Joe's BBQ. We would have a cold beer with the locals down there and take our meal back to the condo to enjoy it on the patio with the wonderful view. At night you can look at the lights from St.Thomas and enjoy the sun setting over the island. We loved everything about our vacation so much we have already booked with Jackie again for a future visit! The only real problem my wife and I had was the day we had to leave...tears in our eyes...you will as well.

Enjoy Paradise! Mitch and Sandy from Michigan

Perfect get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely hands down without any doubt the best place to stay when in St. John, period! We know we've rented villas and homes all over the island for many years and never really considered staying at Grande Bay, I don't know why we just never considered it an option. Wrong thinking on our part. Jackies vacation home is an amazing one bedroom condo thats virtually supplied with everything you need, just follow her guidelines on what you really need and your basically all set to have some fun. The furnishings are perfect as well as the mattress/sheets & Linens. If you want to cook, she has all the pots pans & spices, there was even some butter in the frig when we arrived. I would say that two couples could stay there very comfortably.

The view from the condo has to be one of the best in the whole complex. It has three balcony's from which you can just sit and watch the ferry's come and go all day if you wanted, the scene is always changing. But the best part is you can walk right into Cruz Bay in a minute, so you really don't even need a car (they are expensive to rent) cost us $1100 for a little over a week. The open air taxi's can take you almost anywhere you want to go.

We liked it so much we actually toured the new building and were so impressed with the unit and how well they actually kept up with the maintenance of everything we went ahead and bought a 2-bedroom unit since we come every year.

Fantastic Grande Bay unit

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Grande Bay a few times now and this is by far the nicest unit we've experienced. The unit is clean and well laid out. The Living room is a bit small, but you don't spend much time in there since you have 2 patios facing the ocean. If I could make one suggestion it would be to add a 'bar ledge' on the outside patio that is in the sunlight. A lot of units at Grande Bay have these and they seem super convenient.

Jackie is great to work with and we will be back sometime next year.

Perfect vacation home for St. John

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this unit. Limited parking on the island makes this location perfect with restaurants and shopping in Cruz Bay just a short walk away. Renting a car is a must however, allowing the freedom to "beach-hop", and tour the island without having to waste time waiting on a taxi. We purchased breakfast and lunch items at the Market Place grocery store, enjoyed breakfast and the beautiful view from the two large balcony's overlooking Cruz Bay, and made sandwiches for a beach picnic. In the evening we would return to the room, clean up and walk to one of the many restaurants Cruz Bay has to offer. The penthouse unit is very clean and comfortable, with plenty of room for two people. Designated parking near the elevator, three balconies, nice sized kitchen fully furnished, comfortable living room with a beautiful view, washer/dryer, office space with desk and large bedroom. Jackie the owner and Susan the on-island property manager were pleasant and accommodating in all our communications.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful unit at the Grand Bay Resort. The location is perfect walking access to the ferry, restaurants, shopping and the trails to Solomon and Honeymoon beaches so you don't need a car, which hassle in St. John that is better to avoid. The views from the 2 of the 3 patios are great and we lived on those patios. The living area is a bit on the small side, but the patios more than overcome that as does the desk and work area that allowed us a place for our things without having them in the way. We look forward to returning!
