Property description

“Petit Tre’sor” (a small treasure) at Cruz Bay Villas is a charming one-bedroom condo (sleeps four with a queen-size bed in master bedroom and a sofa bed in the living room) located only a 10-minute walk from Cruz Bay and yet high on the side of a hill overlooking Pillsbury Sound to St. Thomas. This beautiful condo is situated just perfectly to enjoy the adjacent 20' x 10' x 9' deep pool, wrap-around deck, many palm trees, views, and breezes. The condo unit with new air conditioning and ceiling fans features high ceilings throughout. The private screened-in porch (with a teak dining table and new conversation set) is the perfect quiet spot to enjoy your morning coffee while feeding the bananaquit birds, or to linger over a candle-lit evening meal. Petit Tre'sur is one of only two rentals in the pool complex and is situated on about an acre of land with lush tropical forest affording lots of privacy


Sleeps four with queen-sized bed in master bedroom and sleep sofa in living room; large driveway with no steps to unit; cable; WIFI; microwave, blender, toaster, coffee maker, new frig, new stove, beach towels, beach cooler, 2 beach chairs.

Location

Car: Recommended

Petit Tre’sor, a charming, one-bedroom condo with high ceilings and amazing views, is a ten-minute walk from Cruz Bay yet 200' above sea level overlooking Pillsbury Sound. Enjoy the adjacent pool and large screened porch -- both perfect spots to enjoy your morning coffee while feeding bananaquit birds.

Petit Tre'sor sits 200 feet above sea level looking over the coral-colored roofs of downtown Cruz Bay and onto Pillsbury Sound. Downtown Cruz Bay is a ten-minute walk down the hill (or a $4 taxi ride for each person). Cruz Bay is a quaint West Indian village with many restaurants, bars, and shops (including Wharfside Village and Mongoose Junction. One of three supermarkets is a five-minute walk down the hill. Petit Tre'sor has private parking for two cars/jeeps on a driveway just adjacent to the condo and on the same level. Passenger ferries depart from the Cruz Bay dock to St. Thomas and many of the British Virgin Islands; car ferries can take your rental car or Jeep to St. Thomas and back. Most importantly, the Virgin Islands National Park begins next to the town, and all of its world-class beaches are a short drive away. Guests may choose to take a safari taxi to anywhere on the island or a public bus from downtown to Coral Bay and Salt Pond beach.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2000

About: I am a retired University of Massachusetts dean who has owned our beautiful St. John condo for 13 years.In the mid-1970's, I taught English at the University of the Virgin Islands and my wife taught 4th grade at the Pine Peace School (St. Thomas). We loved St. John then, and later traveled often with our two sons there as they were growing up.

Why Cruz Bay:
All of our guests commend our condo's access to town and attractions, privacy, quiet, and amenities. Some have even said, they prefer our little piece of heaven to their stays at Westin or Caneel Bay resorts!
