Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, 2 Large Balconies, Sleeps 8

Blue Coral is a magnificent, luxury 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo villa with spectacular views of the Caribbean waters and surrounding islands. It was included in Destination Magazine as one of the best Villas and is the most sought after 3 bedroom villa in Cruz Bay!

The town of Cruz Bay, the ferry dock and taxi stand are just a short walk away. Even though we are really close to the bars/restaurants/shopping - you will not hear any noise from the town. That differentiates us from some other places in Cruz Bay.

Our place is also the highest elevation in Palm Terrace (the 6 unit condo complex) with the best views. Please take a moment to read the wonderful reviews we have received.

In Cruz Bay you will find plenty of shopping, many fine restaurants, and active night life as well as, two grocery stores, a bank, a library and several churches.

Furnished with a king bed and three queen beds, it is ideal for a family or a few couples. Top quality linens and towels are provided as well as beach towels, beach chairs and coolers. Each of the three baths has a large, walk-in shower. There are large closets throughout as well as a laundry room within the condo. The dining room boasts a carved mahogany table that comfortably seats eight.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped with granite countertops, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, dishes, glassware, coffee pot (including espresso maker), blender, pots and pans, and many other kitchen gadgets.

The main balcony provides an outdoor water-wall and comfortable seating for dining and drinking while enjoying the exquisite views of the Caribbean water and surrounding islands. The balcony off the master suite commands panoramic views and ultra-comfortable lounges as well as a teak table and chairs for an intimate dining experience. Balcony ceiling fans were recently installed to provide additional comfort.

The unit has central air conditioning and each room has a ceiling fan. The great room has cathedral ceilings and a 65'' Hi-Def wall-mounted flatscreen TV. All three bedrooms also have Hi-Def wall-mounted flatscreen TVs. WIFI and local telephone service are included.

If you feel you must work while in paradise, there is an office area off of the Blue Bedroom.

Ample parking is available. Relax by the pool in one of the many lounge chairs. Grill your steaks by the pool on one of the two large stainless steel grills.

Our island host will greet you upon your arrival at the ferry dock. They will lead you to your accommodations and; share an extensive knowledge of the island, including local amenities, restaurants, beaches and hiking trails and ensure you have everything you need to make your experience wonderful.

Blue Coral is smoke-free.

About Linda Olson

Stu and Linda live in Great Falls, Va. They bought Blue Coral in 2013 and try to get there whenever it is not rented. They have two grown children who also love to visit St. John as often as possible.

Linda Olson purchased this condo in 2013

Why Linda Olson chose Cruz Bay

Views, price, square footage, walking distance to town, attention to detail, number of bathrooms (most other 3 bedrooms have only 2 bathrooms), luxury accommodations, no town noise (only nature noises)

What makes this condo unique

Blue Coral has the highest elevation, therefore the best views. Our balcony is made of glass so no view is obstructed. We also added fans to the balconies which keeps it cool and keeps the bugs away. We recently redecorated and added a TV to each bedroom. We change all towels and bedding annually so you will never be disappointed with quality.

Roomy, Convenient, Well Equipped Condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay on St. John at Blue Coral. Clean and comfortable, convenient to dining and amenities in Cruz Bay, beautiful views from the balconies. It cam with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable bedding, and air conditioning that worked well. The management company was very responsive and helpful arranging sailing trips, snorkeling, and transportation from the airport and around the island. We were there for my sons wedding and was a great place to stay for the five of us. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the beautiful island of St. John U.S. VI

"Blue Coral", Palm Villas

  • 4 of 5

The three bedroom condo was spacious, well appointed and well equipped with a generous supply of lush towels, beach towels, beach chairs, cooler and various items for the beach. The ocean view was nice but somewhat limited. For those who are sure of foot, walking to town was possible. Parking was ample and conveniently located to the unit but the spaces were on a steep hill and difficult to unload passengers and beach gear. While we experienced several inconveniences with HVAC and plumbing, the owners and management company were very quick to respond. I would recomend updating the bed linens which were worn and mismatched. Overall we had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay in "Blue Coral".

Owner's Response: Dear Marc, We're so glad that you enjoyed our place. Our bed linens are 600+ thread count and replaced often. We'll make sure that new ones are replaced promptly. We also had a brand new A/C system installed in response to your concerns. We try, as best we can, to be proactive in regards to the appearance and function of our villa. Kind regards, Stu Olson

Great place ot stay near Cruz Bay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at the Blue Coral. Clean and comfortable. Well equipped kitchen. Comfortable beds. A/C works well. We were able to walk down to Cruz Bay in the evening for drinks and dinner. We loved not having to drive and park since parking in town is at a premium.

Beautiful condo near town

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Blue Coral. The location is excellent - quiet street. initially the walk to Cruz Bay seemed like it might be long (it's a big hill!) but actually turned out to be less than 10 minutes and great way to work off drinks and dinner. The condo itself is beautifully furnished and has gorgeous views (best sunset photos I've taken in years). Nicely appointed kitchen if you want to prepare meals yourself, plenty of beach towels/chairs, comfortable beds and couches, books to read, small office area. Only drawback is not enough water. Four of us took brief showers daily and we did one load of laundry and by day 5 or our 7 day stay, the water was just a trickle and not enough for any of us to shower. Went home rather grungy. But still had a wonderful stay and would gladly go back to Blue Coral in the future

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome! Our family of 6 loved this vacation! The location of the property was perfect! A five minute walk to downtown! The house had everything we needed! We will be renting again on our next trip to St. John!

Hill-top location with fabulous ocean views. Balconies also overlook wildlife preserve. Minutes to the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Options of quiet solitude or nightlife activity. Fantastic restaurants, shopping and quaint bars. St. John is 3/4 National Park so it is unspoiled and accessible.
