Cruz Bay Cottage
"I have no hesitation to recommend this cottage to anybody reading this review. We had a perfect vacation and all aspects of the experience exceeded my expectations. What you will get is a quaint cottage on a hillside with a spectacular view. The bed was as comfortable as anything offered in the best hotel. The cottage, although compact, is perfect for two people. The chairs on the porch provide a comfortable place to relax as you watch the ferries come and go and the sun setting in the distance. If I were to say anything negative, (to give balance to this "review"), is that the road from town to the cottage does not have a sidewalk or really any room to walk along without worrying about the traffic. But this is hardly the owner's fault. We had a car so it was not a problem for us and when going the quarter mile or so into town we drove and parked at the car rental lot. I have to also mention how Janet met us at the ferry, brought us to the cottage and then took us to the car rental. That was really nice and much appreciated. We had no reason to call Janet during our stay because there was no need. It was comforting, nonetheless to know she or her husband were only minutes away if we needed something. The cottage was clean and organized and well equipped. I did not seem to be able to get comfortable on the wicker couch or chair in the "living room", but that had the benefit of moving me to the best place, the porch. The cottage has air conditioning which might be more efficient if there were glass windows. We used the air conditioner briefly to cool the place off as we had just ice and snow. Coming from the Midwest, I could not really quite understand the Caribbean Island design of louvers and shutters. (But then again if I lived where it never got cold or snowed I might forego glass windows too). Each window, had a good screen and either wood or metal louvers or shutters. What more do you need! All in all, this little architectural detail added to the exquisite charm of this place. If you want my opinion, you will get everything you see in the pictures or read in the description and more. As for my recommendation, (other than to rent this place), I think to fully explore the island you need a car. My only concession in the overall experience was to drink Coors Light at the local bar on the main street nearby and only because the one dollar price was cheaper than a bottle of water - the two being nearly equivalent in taste. Thank you Janet."

"My wife and I just returned home and we can't wait to return. What a lovely property, and Lee the on-site owner is a most gracious and helpful host. We stayed in the 1-BR apartment (Sugar Bird Nest), and it offered everything we needed and more. Previous tenants have left amenities behind like cooking oil and spices, so make sure you do an inventory before you buy. We left unused sunscreen, Meyer's Rum and some other things so it's a nice "use some/leave some" arrangement. Lee has everything for the beach...towels, beach chairs, coolers, and ice-packs. The view overlooking Pillsbury Sound is fantastic and the large, screened-in balcony makes for a comfortable venue to enjoy morning coffee or for outdoor dining. The Jacuzzi's a nice touch and we were able to use it several times and the gas grill was great for grilling fish. You will need a car, but we were able to use a small 2-WD Yaris from Budget rental car at STT, so don't feel like you have to pay double for a 4-WD Jeep. It was especially nice having a washer/dryer at our disposal as well. We'll remember it for next time so we can pack light. Thank you to Lee for offering such a clean and well-maintained home away from home! We will miss you and Gigi until next time."

"My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of staying in this condo in September 2014. There isn't a better location than this condo and it has everything you need. It is located walking distance to everything in Cruz Bay (Restaurants, Bars, Shops, Beaches and right next to the ferry). The property greeter met us as soon as we got to St. John and was willing to help us with anything during our stay. The staff at Grande Bay was extremely helpful and nice. The condo itself is everything you could ask for. It has a large patio with beautiful views of Cruz Bay, a very comfortable bed and decent sized living space. I recommend this condo to anyone that want to be within walking distance to everything in Cruz Bay!"
