Recent Cruz Bay reviews

  • Calicaribe, USVI

    "This is absolutely a slice of HEAVEN. The westerly view is breathtaking, day or night. The Villa is one of a kind, feels like home, very private. It is so much more than you would expect and the moment you step inside, you feel relaxed. The near by beaches offer magnificent water sports, or just soak up the sun. I will make it back to Calicaribe and would recommend it to family and friends. Thanks for opening up your home, for the world to enjoy."

  • BEST condo in Cruz Bay!

    "Stop looking – this is the most perfect condo rental on St John – and if you need a bit more or less space, just ask – they have a few different models. As others have stated, the condo is just as pictured in the photos – everything is perfect for your stay on St John. The location is great –you can walk to EVERYTHING in town in minutes. The north shore beaches are just a 10-20 minute scenic drive. The condo is well equipped with all of the supplies you might need – extra toiletries, sunscreen, beach toys/chairs, etc. We brought our own snorkel gear but after some equipment failures, it was so nice to be able to just borrow the snorkel/fins/mask from the condo vs worry about spending our vacation time shopping for gear or deal with renting some. The entire rental process (booking condo/paying for it/check –in/check-out) was seamless and so easy. The owners and management company were very responsive and helpful with the couple questions we asked. We look forward to our next trip to St John and when we go, we most definitely plan to stay here again."

    "The view is heavenly and indescribable. There's no better place to stay in St. John than this! The property is right there in town so everything is within walking distance. The property itself is beautiful. The bedrooms are spacious enough and very private. This condo has everything you could ever need. Two thumbs up!"

  • Beautiful Home

    "Sea Cruz is a beautiful home with a world class view of the Caribbean and St. Thomas. This trip was our second stay at Sea Cruz and we are already talking about booking our third. It’s obvious a lot of thought went into designing, decorating and landscaping Sea Cruz, it feels like home only with a view you could never tire of. My wife and I love to be on the huge porch when the sun is setting over St. Thomas. Very convenient location for the beaches, grocery store and restaurants."

Things to See near Cruz Bay Resort Rentals

The National Park Visitor Center in Cruz Bay is the perfect place to familiarize yourself with the island's many attractions, diverse history and culture, and all the activities available. Park rangers can provide you information on various hiking and walking trails that you can explore on your own. Maps and guide books can also be purchased here.

The Virgin Islands National Park is one of St. John’s greatest attractions. The park is home to historic plantation ruins, acres of lush forests, and a coastline of beautiful beaches and pristine coral reefs. The area was once a sugar plantation and now efforts to restore the natural vegetation are bearing fruit. Also of interest in the park are ancient rock paintings known as pyterglyphs. There are several hiking trails that you can follow and beautiful beaches on which to enjoy a picnic.

The Ivan Jaden Museum is a tribute to a well known Russian tenor that came to live on St. John. He lived to the ripe old age of 94. The museum has an interesting collection of artifacts from his life, including several photographs and books in both Russian and English. The Elaine Ione Sprauve Museum is housed in a beautifully restored 1757 plantation house. Exhibits include newspaper clippings, paintings and rare antiques that showcase the history and culture of the island.

Getting to Cruz Bay Villas

St. John does not have a commercial airport. Your nearest flight connection would be into St. Thomas. From there, you can get a bus or taxi to the ferry port at Red Hook or Charlotte Amalie which has passenger ferries operating to Cruz Bay on St. John. The ferries run hourly from the morning until late at night, weather permitting. In the low season, the ferries still run but with less frequency. A car barge operates between St. Thomas and St. John on a regular schedule; this is a great option if you have hired a car and want to explore some of the neighboring islands as well. On St. John, there is a fairly reliable bus service that runs between Cruz Bay, Salt Pond Bay and Coral Bay. This is an inexpensive way to get around the island. Several car rental agencies can be found Cruz Bay and offer relatively reasonable rates. Scooters and bicycles can also be hired on a daily basis and this is a great option for exploring the island.
