Cruz Bay condo description

Welcome to our brand new two bedroom, two bath condo in the new Cruz Bay luxury resort, Grande Bay. Our condo can be rented either as a large two bedroom unit, sleeping up to eight people ('Sugar N' Spice'), or as a one bedroom unit ('Sugar') or studio unit ('Spice'), each sleeping up to four people. We are currently offering special introductory discounts to introduce you to our home. Grande Bay is a 48 unit resort directly on the water and only a three to five minute walk to 'downtown' Cruz Bay with the ferry and all its restaurants, bars and shops. We have spectacular views of the water and harbor with St Thomas in the distance from both of our main balconies. We have a particularly good location within Grande Bay. We are on the second floor (really the third floor, since the ground floor is the garage) of the rear Building C, closest to the pool and away from town. We especially like this location because: (1) we are off the street and don't have any street noise and have more privacy; (2) we are up high so we have great panoramic views; and (3) we are away from town so it is quieter (no Beach Bar or nearby construction) Use our apartment as your base to explore the most magnificent island on earth!

Our large two bedroom unit comes fully equipped with high end furnishings in the Caribbean style. We have a very unique and welcoming floor plan. On one side of the condo is a traditional one bedroom apartment, complete with master bedroom with a king sized four poster bed, dresser, desk and its own balcony. We then have a living room with queen sleeper sofa, and there is an elegant glass-topped dining room table. You can eat there or on the magnificent balcony looking out over the water. Or you can sit on the stools at the granite kitchen counter overlooking the fully equipped stainless steel kitchen. In the evening, enjoy the 40' Sony flat screen cable TV with Blu-Ray, surf the net with our free wi-fi (also, free long distance domestic telephone calls), listen to your favorite music on our stereo with CD player, or just sit on the balcony and enjoy the view.

Our second bedroom is really a connected studio apartment with its own bath. We have a Caribbean style king bed in the sleeping area and a queen sleeper sofa and table in the living area of the studio, complete with its own second Sony 40' flat screen cable TV with full cable service and stereo. The studio has its own balcony with the same magnificent views. We also have a separate small apartment sized kitchen with sink and small refrigerator, microwave and small electric appliances (coffee maker, blender, toaster/oven, etc) and a separate apartment sized washer and dryer (in addition to the ones in the other side of the condo).

The one bedroom side and the studio are internally connected to form a large two bedroom apartment, but both also have their separate outside entrances and the internal door between them can be left open or locked closed Each side sleeps up to four people (four in beds; four on sleeper sofas), so we are perfect for a family or two couples or families traveling together. And you can rent the condo in its entirety as the full two bedroom or separately as either a one bedroom apartment or as a studio apartment (see the floor plan below).

Use our apartment as your base to discover the paradise that is St John! You can walk to two of the most beautiful beaches, Solomon and Honeymoon, in 30 minutes along the National Park Service trail through the woods. Or rent a car or take a taxi to explore the North Shore beaches -- some of the very best in the world. In ten minutes you will be at Hawksnest, and then on to Oppenheimer, Trunk Bay, Cinnamon, Francis Bay and beyond, to name a few, all within the protected boundaries of the National Park. You can take your beach towels, chairs and coolers from the unit, so pack a lunch and make it a day. If you rent a car, park in our garage beneath the building (parking is at a real premium in Cruz Bay). After a day at the beach, come relax pool side or sit in the hot tub and soak in the view. Or if you want to be more vigorous, come work out in our state of the art fitness center with the best views imaginable. We have treadmills, elipticals, bikes, weights, a strength tower, and, yes, even a pilates machine! In the evening, walk to one of the many bars or restaurants in town, or listen to music at the Beach Bar, just two minutes away. Or get some of the best and cheapest barbecue ever from Uncle Joe's and sit on the balcony and watch the sun set as you eat your dinner. So many terrific choices!!

But most importantly, just relax and enjoy this very special spot. We are certain that you will love St John and Grande Bay as much as we do -- it would be virtually impossible not to.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Betty and I and our three daughters have been coming to St John continuously for well over 20 years. For us, it was love at first sight and we all think of St John as our second home. When the Grande Bay project was announced, we jumped at the chance to own our own place in paradise.

                      Why the Owner Chose Cruz Bay:
                      Grande Bay is in a wonderful location -- so convenient to town, yet with spectacular water views and close to the wonderful North Shore beaches. Grande Bay has four buildings -- two in front and two in the rear up the hill, above the front buildings. We specifically chose to be in the rear building (Building C) higher up with more expansive views and away from any street noise. We think we have the very best location within the Grande Bay complex, which itself has the best location of any condo development on St John. And we love the flexibility of our two bedroom 'lockout' unit, which can be utilized either as a large two bedroom, two bath unit; or can be separately used as two units: a one bedroom and a studio unit.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Again, the flexibility of a large two bedroom unit which can also be used as separate one bedroom and studio units is magnificent. It allows for more privacy for the large group who want the whole two bedroom and allows us to share our unit with smaller groups who just want or need a smaller place.
