"Grande Bay is a great resort to stay in... It is very close to the heart of Cruz Bay and walking distance to almost everything.. except the beaches! Accommodations were clean and comfortable and amenities left for renters to use is very convenient as well. Looking forward to my next visit!"

"My husband and I recently returned from three weeks at the Hawks Nest and are already planning to return next winter! This was our second stay and while the cottage is close to Cruz Bay and within walking distance of several beautiful north shore beaches, it has a very secluded and private feel. We think of it as the coolest tree house ever! The well equipped kitchen has everything needed to prepare meals and we ate most of them at the cottage. Occasionally we would get carry out from one of our favorite restaurants and light a candle and enjoy the meal on the deck. The sunset views and lights on St. Thomas after dark are absolutely stunning. Falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean and the tree frogs at night was very relaxing. Birds and geckos will come to visit and we were diligent to keep all food in the refrigerator/cooler/microwave. They will help themselves to anything left out! The owners and property management folks at Cimmaron were very friendly and helpful with any questions we had. While the great location of the Hawks Nest does not make it absolutely necessary to rent a car, we always do and end up using it almost every day. There are lots of great places to explore on the east end and south shore and having a car makes it easier. If you ever had a fantasy to live like the Swiss Family Robinson (with modern creature comforts) then this is the place for you! We have visited many places in the Caribbean looking for the one place we would want to return to year after year and the Hawks Nest is it."

"A true testomony of our love of Andura was that we came back, as we had a flawless vacation here last year. We did notice some differences however which we did not expect based upon the pricey,yet competitive, rate of such luxury. This year the bronze wall fountain did not function and was not repaired during our stay. Seems like a little issue unless you had experienced the hundreds of hummingbirds using it as their tropical bar last year. We came in on Super Bowl Sunday and alas none of the televisions worked. Of course you may also be thinking that we were on vacation, who needs TV? It would have nice to have at least been able to watch the big game. The TV / satellite issue was partially resolved mid-week after two calls so we could finally get music in the great room. To this day we are unable to switch it to the gazebo/ pool area speakers. One of our party is a a wonderful amateur chef. He delights in using what we have on hand to create delectable dishes. But alas, the beautiful commercial gas range had electronic sparking issues all week and did not appear to have been cleaned in quite some time. (Resulting in stained clothes.) Light fixtures need cleaning outside and light bulbs need to be replaced. All this being said we know is genuinely minor but... We have grown to expect clean, properly functioning facilities, especially if we are willing to pay the price. If we were the owners we would want to know these things and would drill down to whose resposility it is to keep it at 100%. We love this place and do not want to see it decline. Just sayin'."
