We just wanted to thank you for allowing us to enjoy your Grande Bay condo for the past 11 days!! We had an amazing honeymoon and could not have asked for a better choice! We were fortunate to have 2 friends that live on St. Thomas, so they were able to show us around both St. John and St. Thomas!! We went to the Baths, Trunk Bay, Megan's Bay, Jost Van Dyke, etc!! Such a beautiful place in paradise you have!! I hope we are able to make it back sooner than later!! Everyone was very nice and helpful as well!!

Incredible stay at Grande Bay
Incredible stay at Grande Bay
Our stay at Grande Bay condo was outstanding! We could not have asked for a more incredible experience, from the beginning to the end. We were kindly greeted at the Cruz Bay ferry and driven just a few blocks away to the beautiful condo. It was in excellent condition with nice furniture for the time we spent indoors. The beds were very comfortable and made with nice linens which only added to a good stay. Time and attention have been given to this condo making sure nothing was overlooked for the enjoyment of vacationers, many colorful thick beach towels, beach chairs, a great grill on the deck for cooking out as well as a kitchen stocked with all you could need to prepare a nice meal in. We are looking forward to returning as soon as possible! We will be booking this condo and Thank the owners for all the extras they provided. A+++

This visit to St. John has been our first since the late 1970's. Truth be told, this was definitely 6 days in "paradise"! Your accommodations were superb - we wanted for nothing as our units were more than "fully equipped." Our sincere appreciation to Holly and Laurie who went the extra mile! Our favorite restaurant was the Lime Inn. We especially enjoyed watching Ziggy, the pig on her daily beach walks

We leased the 2 bedroom unit in August 2012 for the last week of June 2013, so we had been planning this vacation for a long time. We were definitely not disappointed. The condo was just as described. Both the 1 bedroom and the studio are furnished very nicely. There is not a single thing that we would change. It was very convenient having the washer/dryer in the bedroom. To start our day on the balcony with our morning coffee watching the boats go out for the day was wonderful. The location could not be better. In 5 minutes you can be downtown at some very good restaurants. We were little bit worried about the noise from downtown, but even with the festival beginning while we were there, it was not a problem. Even if you lease through VRBO from the owner, the owner has a management company on the island to meet you upon arrival and assist when needed. This is a good personal touch. We had a small A/C problem in the studio that was taken care of in 15 minutes. One could not ask for better care. We hope to return next year.

Best Location! My wife & I just returned from an amazing stay in the 1 bedroom unit. Grande Bay has the best location in town, and Anna May has kept this beautiful condo in pristine condition - as pictures and description implies. This unit has amenities galore. The balcony overlooking the bay was perfect for morning coffee or evening cocktails. The pre-trip & arrival were seamless thanks to Anna May's communication and Laurie meeting us at the dock to take us to the condo - No stress at all! All bars, restaurants, & shopping are just a stone throws away. We loved everything about this unit & will most definitely reach out to Anna May again for a chance to stay here on our next visit.

My husband and I stayed in the 1 bedroom condo for 8 nights. After a rough winter, we had a fantastic vacation! This condo is not only in the perfect location, it is very clean, spacious, and tropically beautiful. Everything you need for the beach, making meals, and even doing some laundry is all supplied. They even have extra sun block lotion and bug spray which you'll need when you have your early morning coffe on the scenic deck. I miss the sound of the water lapping against the shore! Even though it is close to town, it's not noisy at all at night. We chose not to rent a car because the condo is within easy walking distance to all the shops, resaurants, Dolphin Market, and open air taxis that take you to all the beaches. You can even walk to some of the trails. If you want to explore more of the island, you can rent a car for just a day. We chose Grande Bay initially because of the very close proximity to downtown Cruz Bay but we will be returning to Grande Bay and staying in one of Anna May and Peter's condos because they were so kind and accomodating when an unexpected health issue arose and travel needed to be postponed. The description and photos of this condo are true to form. It is very clear that these owners take great pride in their property. If you book with them, believe me, you'll be very happy you did - they've thought of everything!

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this lovely two-bedroom unit. The decor was "island"y and inviting, the views were spectacular and every amenity you could possibly need was there waiting for us, including some nice cold Caribes in the refrigerator. We have stayed on St. John for the past 22 years and each year is better than the one before. Many thanks to the owners for their kind hospitality. We will be back!!

Our first visit to St John. Pre-trip, we had several friendly and very helpful phone and email conversations wirh Anna May. Arriving in St John, we were greeted by Laurie and given a quick town tour before getting to the condo. It contained everything we could need and then some...in-unit laundry, teriffic king bed, ample kitchen space, patios front & back, (even the wine and cheese we had asked to have on hand). It was as pretty as pictured, and the entire property was clean and well-cared for. We opted to taxi to beaches and walk instead of renting a car, and it worked fine....everything is right at hand in town. The dinners at local restaurants were exceptional, and the staffs and townspeople were friendly and helpful. We're sorry we only had 5 days, and have recommended Grande Bay to everyone we've talked to, both on tSt John and at home. Thank you for a great VRBO experience!

The perfect vacation!!
The perfect vacation!!
Our trip on St. John was perfect! Our accomodations had ALL the ammenites, we couldn't of ask for more. It's exactly what you see in the pictures, and It was great to be that close to town. The place was very clean and decorated nicely. The restaurants are all amazing... Rhumb Lines and LaTapa's were two of our favorites, We rented paddle boards right in town which you could watch them from our balcony. Also rented a Dinghy for a day, and traveled the shoreline stopping for snokeling or just relaxing on one of the many beaches. We are looking forward to returning to St. John, and we would not hesistate in renting here again. Thanks again for a memorable trip!

About the owner: As an environmental engineer and a communications director with full schedules, we enjoy returning to St. John often to relax and enjoy the beauty all around us. Our three adults children are frequent visitors as well.
Why the Owner Chose Cruz Bay:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love to hike all over the island, and there is scarcely a trail we have not traveled. After a full day, it's a pleasure to relax in the hot tub. Sometimes we prepare dinner on our balcony grill; other times it's nice to walk the block to many outstanding restaurants.
