About The Owner

This couple has 3 married children who also enjoy hiking and snorkeling on St. John. He is an environmental engineer; she is a communications director.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2011

Why The Owner chose Cruz Bay

After years of exploring the Virgin Islands through bareboat sailing rentals, we chose St. John because of the spectacular scenery, the warmth of the island people, and the perfect weather.

What makes this studio unique

We love the ever-changing vistas of the harbor: pelicans diving, sailboats coming and going. Hiking and snorkeling are our favorite activities. The proximity to town is another plus - we love leaving the car behind and walking to the many wonderful restaurants in Cruz Bay.

Very nice, clean and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The studio had everything that we needed. We were only there from late Wednesday until early Saturday morning. You can walk to all the restauants from the studio. We did rent a car for the two days and they were good enough to get us a free parking place. You just need to ask and see if it is possible. Everyone was super nice and we really did enjoy St John. I plan on coming back.

Perfect little condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here our first time on St John. We loved the location - walked to and from the ferry, walked to lunch and dinner earch day, walked to the grocery store, and was picked up in front of the lobby every day we went to the beaches. Used the chairs and cooler each day. The bed was very comfortable. You can hear the waves from your bed when it's quiet enough :) We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub - even had them to ourselves at times. I would go back again tomorrow and would definitely recommend to any couple.

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

2nd time staying here - just as great as the first time - perfect for 2 people. Location to town is wonderful and the décor is so nice. View from the balcony is so beautiful. I miss my coffee on the balcony already.

The unit was very nice in every respect. It's close proximity to Cruz Bay was fantastic!

  • 4 of 5

What impressed us the most was how well organized the owner is with this unit. From our first contact with them we began receiving information not only about the unit but the island itself. It was our first visit to St John and their willingness to share all the information was very helpful. In addition the management company that takes care of the unit sent us information as well and was kind enough to meet us at the dock at 7am in the morning when we arrived from Tortola, drove us around town and took care of our luggage till the unit was ready.

The unit itself is very nice and based on the pictures and description on VRBO was exactly as we expected. It was very helpful that they provided beach chairs, cooler and towels and they were used every day. The location to town is perfect and an easy walk and the drive to the beaches was 15 or 20 minutes.

There is parking available which is critical if you rent a jeep, a nice workout room and a lovely pool and hot tub area. The reception area is well staffed and they were extremely helpful to all our needs.

I would not hesitate to recommend this studio unit to anyone and would look forward to a return visit in the near future.

Great Balcony and Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as expected -- clean and quaint, with a gorgeous balcony overlooking the Cruz Bay harbor. The best part is the location, as all of the many shops and restaurants in Cruz Bay are within walking distance. The staff was very friendly, and the gym was small but serviceable for maintaining some level of fitness while in paradise.

Most of the beaches are not walkable, so you will need to take a taxi or rent a car to get to those. I suggest renting a car for at least a day or more to get the most out of the island -- there are plenty of jeep rental places around Cruz Bay.

Long and short: we will almost certainly stay here again if we go back!

Wonderful Condo & Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 6 nights in this beautiful condo. Everything was exactly as pictured and the location could not be better! While there is no dedicated parking spot for this studio, management was able to find one for us to use for the week which was greatly appreciated. We rented a jeep, toured the island and really enjoyed being able to walk into town for happy hour and dinner. Rooftop pool, hot tub and views are even better than described. Wonderful condo and we will definitely be back to stay! Enjoy!
