Cruz Bay condo description

2 Bedrooms, Private Balcony, Pool, Sleeps 4

Sand Dollar is a fully equipped two-bedroom island getaway overlooking Cruz Bay Harbor in beautiful St. John, USVI. Located in Battery Hill, an intimate and private gated condominium community, Sand Dollar is a five-minute walk to gourmet restaurants, boutiques, convenience stores, beach bars, the taxi stand, the ferry dock, and the private beach at Frank Bay.

Sand Dollar' has two bedrooms, each with its own air conditioning unit. The master bedroom features a queen-size bed. The guest bedroom has two twin beds. All beds are dressed with soft white linens and topped with ample pillows.

The living room is furnished with comfortable wicker furniture upholstered in tropical fabrics, a flat-screen TV with DVDs, and a computer desk.

Two sets of double doors lead to the private covered porch that overlooks the harbor and downtown activity. Furnished with table and chairs for four, the porch provides views of Cruz Bay Harbor and the beautiful Caribbean Sea, making it a perfect spot for morning coffee and evening cocktails.

The indoor dining area is adjacent to the galley-style kitchen , which is fully equipped, right down to wine glasses for every occasion and a blender for making frozen tropical drinks.

Sand Dollar has high-speed Wifi, cable TV, and cell phone service. A full bath with tile shower and sumptuous towels is shared by both bedrooms. Although Sand Dollar is cooled by tropical breezes, each room has a ceiling fan.

With just nine homes in Battery Hill, guests can enjoy a peaceful and quiet haven in which to enjoy the charm and ambiance of this special West Indian paradise. The private pool and sundeck is for the exclusive use of Battery Hill owners and guests. The property is surrounded by lush Caribbean greenery, and there is a gas grill as well as a laundry facility for guests to use.

About two-thirds of St. John is national park land. The park service maintains a network of hiking trails throughout the island that are accessible from many locations. Some lead to ruins of sugar plantations, others past petroglyphs and waterfalls.

Guests can rent a jeep to explore the island or take a safari taxi to any of the North Shore’s beautiful white-sand beaches. Trunk Bay, the most photographed beach on the island, is only ten minutes away and features the island’s popular underwater snorkeling trail.

From town it's an easy hike to Solomon Bay and Honeymoon Bay, two of the North Shore's beaches that are not accessible by jeep or taxi. From Honeymoon Bay it’s a short walk to Caneel Bay where you can enjoy lunch and a tropical drink, and then take a taxi back to town.

Sand Dollar has everything needed for a relaxing and affordable family vacation, making it the perfect “home away from home” on St. John.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We fell in love with the warm tropical breezes, pristine beaches, crystal-clear water, and the unspoiled beauty of this paradise island during our first visit in 1998. We love the laid-back lifestyle of island living, where the biggest decision of the day is which of the beautiful white-sand beaches to go to. After years of renting on St. John, we discovered how important it is to stay at a clean, comfortable, convenient, and relaxing vacation getaway, which is why Sand Dollar has always been our favorite “home away from home” -- first as renters and now as owners. We hope you will feel just as much at home at Sand Dollar as we always have.

Why the Owner Chose Cruz Bay:
We love the simplicity and beauty of St. John. The tranquil turquoise waters, the white sand, the glorious views of the Caribbean islands in the distance, and the spectacular sunsets over St. Thomas can't be beat.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We always leave in a more relaxed state of mind and body.
