Frequent visitors to Grande Bay often say 'This is the nicest unit we have stayed in.' It is in the front building on the ideal second floor next to the water.
Picture yourself here! This premiere, quiet one-bedroom condo just feet from the ocean offers views overlooking aqua waters from the roofed front balcony with balustrade. (No building in between.) Inside, floor to ceiling turquoise drapes frame glass doors of the living room decorated in shades of aqua, blue, and spring green. A queen size sleeper sofa and chair offer seating for the Sony flat screen TV with DVD player. Original artwork enhances the tropical atmosphere.
The gourmet kitchen is equipped with a stainless steel side-by-side refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, microwave and freestanding stove/oven, blender, coffeemaker, and toaster oven. Granite countertops extend out, offering barstool seating for four. Guaranteeing a quiet night's sleep in this tranquil setting, the spacious master bedroom with full bath features Lexington Tommy Bahama furnishings: king-size bed, night tables, and bureau. A back balcony offers sunny views of the ever-blooming, tropical landscaping.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011
After years of exploring the Virgin Islands through bareboat sailing rentals, we settled on St. John because of the spectacular scenery, the warmth of the island people, and the perfect weather.
We love the ever-changing vistas of the harbor: pelicans diving, sailboats coming and going. The proximity to town is another plus - we love leaving the car behind and walking to the many wonderful restaurants in Cruz Bay.
Anna May and Peter's unit is nothing short of perfection. Well equipped kitchen, washer dryer, plenty of bath towels, comfy patio furniture. The parking spot for this unit is also very convenient! We had a wonderful visit to Grande Bay, and we loved the proximity to Cruz Bay. The ONLY reason that this is not a 5 star review is that there is a studio unit attached to this 1 bedroom ( also owned by Anna May and Peter). On our first morning, we were woken by the clinging and clanging of pans/ silverware- I'm not really sure what all the commotion was- But it continued the next day as well. I can describe it best as when you have a 1 year old and you let them "play" in the kitchen. It was LOUD. That is not something that the owners can control however- but it might be something to take into consideration if you are a very light sleeper- Hopefully it was an isolated event. Would we return to this condo? Absolutely!
Loved the location. This unit had everything we needed. The ceiling fan on the balcony was a favorite for a cool breeze. Nicely decorated and comfortable. Would definitely book this unit again. Oct. 13 - 22, 2016.
It was such a great trip!. The condo was absolutely beautiful, full of upgrades, and convenient to everything in Cruz Bay. We will definitely be reserving that unit AGAIN. Thanks for allowing us to stay.
Really enjoyed our stay. Condo has everything you could need. The location is great, so convenient to walk everywhere and not need a car. We did rent a jeep for four of the 14 days we were here and the assigned parking spot was great. Fantastic view sitting on the balcony watching the ferries and boats come and go. Would definitely return
My husband I stayed from July 28th through August 8th and really enjoyed the unit. It was perfect for the two of us. Everything was cleaned and well maintained. The bed was very comfortable - I slept like a baby! We really enjoyed being right in Cruz Bay and walking to the shops, restaurants, and bars. I already miss sitting on the deck watching the water and the boats coming and going! It was a such a pleasure to meet you Peter and Anna May while we were there- thank you for allowing us to rent your lovely unit. We will definitely return and recommend to others.
We stayed in the unit mid-July and had a great time. There were 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 kids, which worked great for this property. The location is fantastic. The unit itself was clean, the provided beach chairs, coolers and beach toys for our kids. The parking spot provided with the unit was very convenient - right next to the elevator. One thing we really appreciated was the 3-ring binder in the condo that contained information on St John - including reviews/directions to each of the beaches, menus for local restaurants and reviews of 'things to do' while on the island. It was very helpful!
We loved staying at Grande Bay - wouldn't stay anywhere else if visiting St John in the future.
