Property description

Welcome to El Nido St John! We invite you to come and stay…. A comfortable, well-appointed residence in paradise awaits you!

Spanish for 'the nest,' El Nido (pronounced eL-NEE-doh) is a charming, spacious, one bedroom condominium featuring amazing panoramic water views. Just one mile from the center of Cruz Bay Town, the condo is situated within a lush tropical setting high on a hillside in a quiet neighborhood. This very convenient location on an easily accessible paved road, gives you close and simple proximity to beaches, hiking trails, restaurants and shopping.

El Nido has everything you will need to make your stay on St John relaxing and memorable. In this recently renovated, top floor unit you will discover a newly laid travertine tile floor, fresh paint, and an attractively remodeled and fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen features mahogany cabinets, quartz countertops, an elevated bar area with hand blown glass pendant lighting, and new appliances. A teak dining table and chairs set is the perfect complement to this beautiful space. The comfortable new mahogany and abaca weave living room sofa and loveseat provides the perfect balance for the now open floor plan. The separate bedroom encourages a restful night’s sleep with a queen size bed with orthopedic mattress, more fresh paint, a continuation of the travertine tile floor, beautiful artwork, and new linens that echo the blue of the Caribbean Sea. The remodeled bathroom and three new tropical themed ceiling fans completes our off-season improvement efforts. All this, along with the original mahogany wood accents, lovely high cathedral ceilings that augment the constant flow of the trade winds through the many windows, the amazing artwork created by local artists who live and work on St John, makes us confident you will find the enhanced, open and airy interior of El Nido St John a very appealing, truly inviting space.

In addition to the attractive interior is the exceptional outdoor living space that El Nido provides. The high elevation and location of the unit within the condo complex affords the covered, private deck of El Nido St John stunning, far and wide ranging water views. Enjoy your morning coffee, an afternoon cocktail or dining al-fresco while absorbing the beauty of the ever changing seascape. As evening approaches take the time to relax and enjoy the splendor of the truly magical and unforgettable sunsets uniquely accessible to you from this secluded spot. You may find a desire to linger here as the stars come out and the lights begin to twinkle in the distance...

**El Nido St John is a smoke-free environment. Smoking is not permitted in the unit or on the deck**

Location

Car: Recommended

St John claims some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Enjoy sunbathing on stunning powdered sand beaches. Swim and snorkel in crystal clear waters among brightly colored tropical fish over amazing coral reefs. Hike trails to see ruins or ancient petroglyphs while enjoying the lush and varied tropical vegetation. Consider a motor or sail boat charter, truly a wonderful way to experience the real beauty of the Island from above and below the water.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We were both born and raised on Long Island in New York. It took a long time for us to find each other and become a couple, so we are doing the best we can now to make the most of the rest of our time together. We may have missed some things due to our late start but life happens and we wouldn't have it any other way!

Why the Owner Chose Cruz Bay:
While trying to escape the always cold, often snowy Northeast winters, we discovered the beautiful Virgin Island of St. John. Like so many others, we began visiting this lovely Island when disembarking from cruise ships porting in St Thomas. I fell in love with the Island almost instantly and clearly remember the day I was sitting in the sand at Trunk Bay and made the statement that St John was my favorite place on the planet. My husband's love affair began after we spent our first true vacation on St John in a wonderful guest house in Coral Bay. I think driving on the left was what convinced him! We love the people, the beauty, and the laid back atmosphere that is the true foundation of St John. The decision to buy was truly serendipity. The right place, the right property, the right time.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
El Nido - The perfect size, a perfect view and a perfect location. There is no better feeling than sitting out on the deck enjoying the sunset and knowing we are truly blessed to be able to do so. We would love to share that feeling with you. For us it is about having guests come and stay at El Nido while enjoying the beautiful island of St John. Our goal is to make you feel the way we feel when we are here - to be so glad you chose this place and so happy to be just where you are!
