Welcome to Egret's Rest at Grande Bay Resort. Located on beautiful St. John, also known as the jewel of the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. John is a volcanic island offering white sand beaches, turquoise waters, mountain vistas and historical ruins. The Virgin Islands National Park encompasses over half of the island's nineteen square miles. Surrounded by coral reefs and seagrass beds, St. John offers excellent snorkeling from shore as well as diving excursions. If you prefer to hike, there are over twenty maintained hiking trails for your enjoyment.

Your home away from home at Grande Bay is located WATERFRONT and offers an unobstructed view of Cruz Bay Harbor. Enjoy breakfast or dinner on the large balcony while listening to the waves lapping the shoreline.

Egret's Rest is a private and large one bedroom suite with a full kitchen and bathroom, it is NOT a lock out suite, so is very spacious. Our suite features a king sized bed, a full bathroom with access from the bedroom or hallway for privacy. A fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and all the items necessary to create a wonderful island meal or a refreshing blended drink.

The combined living and dining rooms have been recently redecorated with new furnishings and offer space to spread out and relax after a day of touring St. John's many beaches. We offer a queen sized sleeper sofa along with a flat screen TV and DVD player.

You'll also enjoy the rear garden balcony off of the master bedroom and the large front balcony with an unobstructed view of Cruz Bay Harbor and beyond.

In addition to all linens, we also provide beach chairs and coolers for your day out and about and a washer and dryer so that you can pack light.

Our suite includes free wi-fi internet service and free phone service to the Continental US as well as a safe for your valuables. For your added convenience, we have a reserved parking space if you choose to rent a vehicle for your stay.

The resort offers a large pool deck overlooking the ocean along with swimming pool and hot tub. The resort also boasts a spacious exercise room with new equipment (even a Pilates machine!) that offers ocean views. Grande Bay is staffed 24 hours a day to answer any questions you may have or assist with your vacation.

Due to our convenient location right in Cruz Bay, you can easily walk to shops, restaurants, bars and even some beaches at your leisure.

We know you will love St. John as much as we do!

About Tracy Pajewski, Owner

We have been visitors to St. John since our first trip in February of 2002. Since that visit, we have been back at least once a year and have shared the island with our children, friends and family members. We know that we are blessed to be able to realize our dream of owning property on St. John. We feel that we have found our place in paradise and we love sharing it with others

Tracy Pajewski, Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why Tracy Pajewski, Owner chose Cruz Bay

We searched for years for the perfect place on St. John and came to love Grande Bay. The location right in town can not be beat. For us, the perfect day includes making breakfast, heading to a beach or two then coming home to clean up and head out to enjoy dinner. Grande Bay provides us with all the amenities of home with a full kitchen, large showers, comfortable furnishings and an easy walk to the perfect restaurant or bar. We know that you will love it as much as we do!

What makes this condo unique

When we have the opportunity to stay at Grande Bay, we enjoy having breakfast on the balcony while listening to the waves and watching Cruz Bay come to life. We love taking the beach chairs and coolers to a different beach each day and snorkeling or hiking up to Ram Head, Margaret Hill or along another amazing trail. We enjoy all the comforts of home along with a staff that will assist us or answer any questions we might have. If we decide to forgo the beach, we have the option of relaxing on the pool deck and enjoying the pool and hot tub. If we're feeling energetic, we like to take advantage of the exercise room overlooking the ocean. We especially like parking our rental car and walking into town less than 100 yards for a delicious meal or island drink.

Terrific Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Egret's Rest is just as it is pictured........nicely appointed, convenient, great open floor plan, very clean and comfortable. This was our first visit to St John (for a family wedding/vacation) and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kitchen is well equipped if you choose to cook, or local restaurants are within easy walking distance. Loved having our morning coffee and.breakfast on the balcony.......what a spectacular view!

Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Egret's Rest is one of the best condos we have stayed at in Grande Bay, Christmas being our 2nd time staying in the condo. I love that the floor plan is so open, we had our friends over for breakfast one morning and all 7 of us had room to enjoy breakfast and the view. It's always clean and stocked well. We definitely will be back to stay again!

Egret’s Rest is almost perfect

  • 5 of 5

Egret’s Rest is very clean, properly maintained and well-appointed in its furnishings and decor. Its kitchen has everything you’ll for whatever meals you want to prepare. The bath is very nice. The condo is extremely comfortable with lots of space. The washer and dryer make it possible to pack light. The unit was stocked with dish soap, Cascade pods, Tide and bleach. Tracy has provided small, medium and large coolers for beach trips, as well as chairs and other beach gear. The free long distance and local calling are great, especially if your cellular service is with Verizon and you have bupkis for signal. The pictures of the condo are exactly what you’ll find. The only drawback, and it is a small one, is that the mattress is on the soft side.

The view from the third floor was fantastic. The balcony overlooking Cruz Bay was great for morning coffee. Leave the Jeep you rented in the condo’s reserved parking spot while wandering around Wharfside Village and out to Mongoose Junction. There are many restaurants and shops within walking distance, so no need for the great (and expensive) parking hunt in Cruz Bay. Being on the third floor, we did not experience the construction or other noise that some have noted in Grande Bay reviews.

Tracy, the owner, is quick to respond to questions or concerns you may have. Gina, Tracy’s on-island representative met us at the ferry terminal, made certain we were settled in before she left and let us know that she was available if we needed any assistance.

When we go back, Egret’s Rest will be at the top the list of where we will stay.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Grande Bay 3 times in the last year and this by far is our favorite condo! We stayed in a penthouse in April, which compared to Egrets Rest was so small. We had 3 adults on this trip and plenty of space to stretch out. The view was spectacular!! I can't wait to be back in the Egrets in December!!

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at this property and couldn't have been happier. The unit is super clean and well maintained. The owner and the management company are very easy to work with and quickly respond to any communication. The owner has not overlooked even the smallest detail in creating a warm and inviting space. Easy walk to town and close to grocery stores as well. Best experience I have had to date renting in the Grande Bay complex. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Fantastic Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed here and it was wonderful. The location to download was great. We would go out and explore all the beaches and snorkel all day then come back and walk 5 seconds to the restaurants and ice cream shop. The condo had everything we needed. It was very clean and spacious. There were even some beach toys, chairs and noodles in the storage container that we were able to use which was great. The view from the balcony was awesome! I wish I was back there right now.
