About The Owner

Stacey McCarthy has three children 11,9 & 2. I am very sad to share that my amazing husband, Kevin of almost 17 years was killed in a tragic car accident on Nov. 3, 2016. We are getting things together as best we can so thank you for your interest in our property. I hope to do half the job my husband did with responding to rentals since he took over after our 2 yo. was born. Kevin & I loved to spend time together on St. John and have so many wonderful memories of the island together. He purchased the condo so that we could continue to enjoy beach time after moving from my hometown on the Gulf Coast.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Great Cruz Bay

Ideal Oceanfront Location, all amenities of home; ability to travel light!

What makes this condo unique

MOST IMPORTANT is convenience of the location so we can WALK everywhere & there's no hassle with driving or paying for a cab-(can be expensive)if you want to come to town each night from somewhere else & don't want to drive back up te mountain after enjoying cocktails... Equally important to us is the AMAZING view ! We literally step from the Ferry Boat to the sand, grab the Carribean Painkiller from one of the restaurants/bars and we stroll to the unit. We also really enjoy the afternoon -evening music that is playing in town from Condo patio--There's nothing like a day of beach going, afternoon cocktails, dinner, & then waking up to the panhorammic view of Surrounding Carribean Islands.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I think this unit is very warm and inviting and has all the things I like to have when staying away from home. Most of all the location and the view is my favorite!

We rented the one bedroom, and the lock out studio for 10 nights. After reading the reviews and knowing Grande Bay is a high end resort we booked both sides .

We must start with the tragic, unfortunate circumstance of the owner passing away suddenly six weeks before our arrival. However the problems with this condo have existed for much longer. .The first clue, was the instruction to contact the property manager who lives on Island. His is a is a non working website. When we got off the ferry, most passengers were met by their property manager, we were on our own. Our key was at the front desk of Grande Bay providing access. The one bedroom side of the condo was sparsely furnished with a broken chair on the patio and worn out bar stools. There was no bedside table in the bedroom making reading in bed impossible. The lack of lamps was a real problem. (just horrible overhead lighting. When alerted to the damp black mold problem, the property manger said "Its a problem on all of ST John". With that in mind, we took a tour of another condo in the same building. No mold beautifully furnished and night a day different from our unit. The clue was there were "Be dry" bags with old disgusting moldy water hanging throughout both sides of the condo indicating manager was are of the dampness problem. The condo is privately owned but the Grande Bay people were nice enough to send maintenance to change the a/c filter and scrub the black mold off the ceiling and a/c vents. My wife who is allergic to black mold, had to go to the on island clinic for bronchial medicine and an inhaler. We were told the studio kitchen was "self contained" and we would be able to prepare meals after the one bedroom was rented to others. The was no way to prepare anything as the kitchen had NO APPLIANCES other than a microwave. We looked in the drawers for utensils and instead found a tool box with nails and screws instead of kitchen stuff. The condo had potential but when we rented it was a VERY EXPENSIVE NIGHTMARE. We tried to move but had already paid in full with NO REFUNDS (now we know why) and everything on St John was rented for the holidays. This was our third trip to St John and we LOVE the island. Until this stay we have had great experiences with rentals. The kicker. When we asked for a late check out on New Years Day.. the manager, who we NEVER MET, emailed me that we had to be out by 10am or 'WE WOULD BE ESCORTED OUT. Avoid!!!!!

Owner's Response: WOW! Thanks for your sentiment that my husband was tragically killed 6 weeks prior. My three children and I are having a hard time and certainly don't like to hear such a drastically negative response regarding something we have worked very hard at as a couple. I am dumbfounded as to the fact that we have never had anyone post such a bad review. Although, I guess it was not so bad if you wanted to stay longer. This is interesting to me. I am definitely sorry to hear this from you. Did you contact Peter or ANYONE? Most of our guests, including the one who was in just before you AND who posted a great review, find our unit to be exactly what they need. Due to the location of our property at Grande Bay, it is not always necessary for someone to be met as it is walking distance from the ferry. It is very typical unless the guest specifically asks to be met or has never been to the island, for our guests pick up a key at the front desk, similar to what one would do at any other condo or home rented from a real estate agency. However, we strive to assist all needs if someone requests to be met or otherwise. This condo is not set up as a full service hotel, although we strive to do our best and there are great amenities available to you. Being on an humid island, it is not unusual for someone to place damp rids in various places. Usually the problem is due to guests leaving patio doors open. The patio table and chairs sets are not broken? Typically, our guests will notify Peter immediately if something is broken. Did you attempt to do this? I am shocked that you would post such things without contacting us first. My husband's email is still accessed daily and I heard nothing about this from Peter regarding this discomfort on your part. Did you contact VRBO? We had other renters coming in therefore, could not give you an additional nights' stay. I don't think it is necessary for you to be so publicly rude without contacting the owners first. I will address the items you mentioned, but the bar stools are definitely not destroyed. There is a full set of silverware, a skillet, toaster oven, blender, mini fridge in the unit. I am not sure what you are talking about with regards to this situation of having no ability to cook. It is a kitchenette, not a full kitchen. There may have been some nails in a drawer for hanging pictures, etc. but seriously? This grieving widow is bewildered.

A friend and I recently stayed at this property. I was perfect in every way. Very close and within walking distance of all the great restaurants and bars. Beautiful view of Cruz Bay. Quiet, clean and comfortable and worth every penny. Has everything you need to make your island stay a memorable one. Highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. I am so glad that you had a nice stay and found our condo to be clean and comfortable with all of the items available for your needs. My late husband Kevin and I have worked very hard to ensure all of our guests have everything they need and if not that we address any unmet needs. The unit was painted in September and I am so glad to hear that you felt it to be what you expected. We always strive to ensure if it is no beyond satisfactory, that a guest contact us with any problems or concerns, so I am pleased to hear your review. Please come back again! Thank you, Stacey McCarthy

Great location in Cruz Bay, lovely studio

  • 5 of 5

The studio was just what we needed for our stay in Cruz Bay. It was clean, well-designed , and had a wonderful smell to it...sounds bizarre but it was really a most pleasant smell. The unit had everything we needed -- the kitchenette had a small fridge, coffee maker, plates, glasses, etc., the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was clean. The description and pictures were very accurate. The view from the terrace is lovely. The reserved parking spot was taken by the occupants of the one-bedroom unit but we were able to find a free unassigned spot for the night -- for longer stays you might want to make sure you have a spot as parking in Cruz Bay can be a challenge.

On all our previous trips to St. John we have just stayed in Cruz Bay but on this trip we decided to spend most of the trip staying out on the East End (in or near Coral Bay). At the end, though, we needed our Cruz Bay "fix" and we had wanted to try Grande Bay so this place was perfect. We walked to dinner at a great new restaurant in Cruz Bay called Extra Virgin, and then the next day to shops for some souvenirs.

It was very quick and easy working with Kevin on the reservation which we really appreciated. We will definitely consider staying there again when we return to St. John.

Stunning destination with a perfect place to stay and see it all. Condo did not disappoint. Very spacious for my wife and I with extra room for another couple (on our next trip). All the amenities you would expect and more- you don't need to bring anything from home other than your clothes and flip flops! Cant wait to do it again!
