  • Weekend stay

    "I have been to STJ on many occasions usually staying for a week. This year we chartered a boat for a week and stayed on STJ for 3 nights. I would highly recommend staying at Grand Bay and this condo. We did not want to rent a car but was able to rent one for the day through Grand Bay. The condo is located within walking distance to the shops, bars, restaurants and ferry in Cruz Bay as well as Mongoose Junction. The Condo was very nicely furnished, clean and the ac worked very well. We were during tropical storm Bertha. The staff kept us informed of the storm, provided us with umbrellas and flashlights. I would definitely stay at Grand Bay again and in particular this condo!"

  • A gem!

    "We have rented many times through VRBO. On the Rocks is by far the best-stocked rental ever. As others have said, you do NOT need to bring anything but your clothes and some toiletries with you. Margaret was so easy to work with. She made arranging this rental a breeze. She even set up our jeep rental for us, met us at the ferry and gave us a quick orienting tour of Cruz Bay. She was so helpful, non-intrusive, warm and friendly. We enjoyed listening to her stories and suggestions. The kitchen is so well stocked-including plastic containers, many herbs and spices, plenty of pots and utensils. And, I highly recommend you check out what items are already there before you get anything from the grocery store. Margaret even had a nice basket of snack items for us. The bedding and towels are good--and there are PLENTY of towels. Lots of snorkel gear. Plenty of books. You name it, she's already got it. We enjoyed snorkeling right from the beach there-and saw plenty-including sting rays. The pool is such a nice extra. We had many dinners at the house-used the gas grill and ate out next to the pool. She has journals there with many years of remarks from many renters--so many come back year after year. It is a great location-if you want to be close enough to 'town' but also not 'surrounded' by crowds."

  • Hands down the best, it will make you want to move!!

    "My wife and I stayed at Pure Joy cottage for our honeymoon in september, and my goodness what an amazing experience it was. The cottage is secluded and quit with the most generous, helpful, and accommodating owner. The porch looks out onto the ocean with a beautiful view of Cruz Bay with st. Thomas and some other small isands in perfect view; making every morning the best you will have. We drank coffee on the porch every morning then packed lunch for the day. the cottage is loaded with brooks and guides to the island, with the most amazing beaches and snorkeling, USE THEM and you can find just about anything you want, from sharks too sea turtles we saw it all. There is a really nice full kitchen, which we used alot due to the fact the fish verity on the island you can buy at the groceries, offers a fun cooking experience. The cottage is conveniently 3 minutes out of the town Great Cruz bay which is the biggest on the island, filled with amazing restaurants, fun little bars, and amazing locals that welcome and guide you in anyway they can. This cottage in perticular made our vacation, it is everything you need and more, with an amazing bed that makes you sleep in, a beautiful bathroom with a very large shower (with great water pressure may I add better then any hotel! We know it matters) and did I mention the HOTTUB! which by the way has the same amazing view as it is on the porch. If you love to relax and do it on your own do what we did, though it was a chance , it was well worth taking we went in so called "hurricane season" or down season, some restaurants were closed, but we had two or three days at Jumbie bay and francis bay that we had the beach to ourselves.. literally the only people it's a truly unique experience that offered the opportunity to really take it all in. Beautiful weather the entire trip. Pure Joy has it all and ymis sure to blow yoyr expections out of the water.We have suggested this to everyone we know and will continue to go to Pure Joy for the rest of our lives , as that's what this place is... Pure Joy P.s. say hello to the iguanas in the trees the porch over looks! They are always an entertaining bunch to watch in the morning with your coffee. NOW GOO RELAX AND HAVE SOME FUN !!"
