Why Anna May Charrington chose Estate Enighed
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.

Fantastic first experience on St. John
We spent our first week ever March 19-26, 2018 on St. John in this Grande Bay studio and loved every minute of our time! The communication after our booking and prior to our visit was outstanding - and Anna and Peter continued to offer hospitality and kindness to make our first STJVI visit exceptional. (we will definitely be returning) The studio was darling as well as comfortable and offered great views of Cruz Bay over morning coffee and evening cocktails. Our days were spent on the beautiful beaches (Trunk, Hawksnest, Cinnamon, Maho, Frances, Salt Pond) and we soon found that our favorite beach on St. John was 'the next one'. Each night we enjoyed walking from the studio to the shops and great restaurants & bars (the Landing, North Shore Deli,High Tide, Morgan's Mango, Longboard, Greengo's, Woody's, Rhumb Line, Banana Deck .....) nearby. Scenic jeep rides took us to Starfish Market (great grocery/bakery) and Columbo's (for a smoothie) as well as visits to Skinnylegs, Lucy's and Aqua Bistro in Coral Bay. Although the island is still recovering/reblooming after the hurricanes, we were met with beauty in our surroundings and the people at each turn. Can't wait to come back!
Perfect for us!
The quick take: We have been home less than two weeks and we have already booked Surfside Studio for an even longer stay next year! We loved it that much!
My wife and I have vacationed in St. John every winter for the last eighteen years. We love the the beautiful beaches, the fun restaurants and bars, the relaxed atmosphere and the friendly people. This year we found a condo that gave us everything we want.
The location is ideal. Sitting on our balcony in the morning, we enjoyed our breakfast and coffee while taking in the spectacular view of the beach, the boats in the harbor, and St. Thomas in the distance. It was so beautiful. Combine that with the hypnotic sound of the waves, and it wasn't surprising that we were sometimes slow in getting out to the beach. The restaurants, bars, and shopping of Cruz Bay are all a short walk away, as are the taxis to take you to the beach. There is no need for a car, which is a big plus for us.
The condo is very well stocked with the essentials, super clean, well maintained, and the bed is very comfortable. It's obvious that the owners want their renters to have a great experience.
We'll end the review by speaking of the owners, Anna May and Peter. They are delightful. We were luckily there while they were staying in another of their condos. They were very friendly and happy to share their knowledge of the island-- one more reason we loved our trip so much!
Great in-town location
This was the first time I've stayed in Cruz Bay (been staying @ Cinnamon Bay campground for almost 40 years :) We really enjoyed this little gem. The studio was roomy enough for me & 17-year old daughter, the bed was really comfortable, and the outside deck had a fabulous view of the bay, the Wharfside waterfront stores (most still not open, but High Tide had full menu), and we saw rainbows from the deck almost every morning. Having washer & drying in unit was big bonus. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend!
Very nice studio.
Everything went exactly as planned. It was nice to have a full size fridge in the studio. Bed was nice and comfy! This is a very nice studio.
Excellent!!! As always!!!
Very clean, comfortable, cozy studio that is very well appointed. AC is great but really did not need it much bcuz the unit stays cool. Comfy bed and sheets. Well equipped kitchenette! Great view too and so convenient to town. This is my 3rd stay at Grande Bay and I willbe back again! Thank you!!!!
We had a lovely time in Cruz Bay and loved the condo where we stayed
The information you provided us in advance of our trip was extremely helpful. Everyone - from the woman who picked us up from the Ferry to the front desk - to the wonderful older gentleman in the basement whose water we mistakenly thought was ours for the taking - was polite, friendly and very anxious to make our visit a good one. The condo was exactly as pictured; we enjoyed breakfast and our evening wine sitting on the deck overlooking the bay. The only complaint we had for the entire trip was that it was very noisy when sitting on the deck with the music from the Beach Bar nearby. Would we come back? Yes. Thank you for making our trip a memorable one. Donna and Glenn
It is a short one block walk into Cruz Bay for restaurants, bars, and shopping.
