Property description

Introductory discounted offer for our brand new one bedroom ('Sugar') and studio ('Spice') condo in the new Cruz Bay luxury resort, Grande Bay. This 48 unit resort is directly on the water and only a three minute walk to 'downtown' with all its restaurants, bars and shops. Spectacular views of the water with St Thomas in the distance. Our unit is particularly well located within Grande Bay. We are on the second floor (really the third floor since the garage is the ground floor) of the rear Building C closest to the pool and away from the town side. We love this location becasue: (1) we are off the street so there is no street noise and more privacy; (2) we are up high so we have those wonderful panoramic views; and (3) we are away from the town side, so it is quiet (no Beach Bar and no nearby construction) Use our apartment as your base to explore the most magnificent island on earth!

Our one bedroom unit ('Sugar') comes fully equipped with high end furnishings in the Caribbean style. The master bedroom comes with a king sized four poster bed, dresser and desk, and has its own balcony. It also has its own flat screen TV with cable. The living room has a queen sleeper sofa, and there is an elegant glass-topped dining room table. Eat there or on our magnificent balcony looking out over the water. In the evening, enjoy our 40' flat screen TV with cable and blueray, surf the web with our free wi-fi (and free domestic long distance telephone calls, listen to your favorite music on our stereo with CD player, or just sit on the balcony and enjoy the cool sea breezes. Our kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, including a breakfast bar. And there is wireless high speed internet throughout, and you have your own washer/dryer.

Alternatively, you could rent our large studio ('Spice') equipped with a king bed and a queen sleeper sofa in the studio's living/sitting area, and a small dining table. There is a magnificent balcony with wonderful views of the Caribbean. The studio's own 40' flat screen TV with cable is hidden behind a handsome armoire. The studio has a kitchenette, complete with sink, small refrigerator, microwave and granite countertop, and is fully equipped. There is wireless high speed internet throughout with your own washer/dryer.

Use our apartment as your base to discover the paradise that is St John! You can walk to two of the most beautiful beaches, Solomon and Honeymoon, in 30 minutes along the National Park Service trail through the woods. Or rent a car or take a taxi to explore the North Shore beaches, some of the best in the world. In ten minutes you will be at Hawksnest, and then on to Oppenheimer, Trunk Bay, Cinnamon Bay and Francis Bay to name a few, all within the protected boundries of the National Park. You can take your beach towels, chairs and coolers from the unit, so make it a day. If you rent a car, park in our garage beneath the building (parking is at a premium in Cruz Bay). After a day at the beach, come relax pool side or sit in the hot tub and soak in the view. Or if you want to be more vigorous, come work out in our state of the art fitness center with the best views of any fitness center anywhere. In the evening, walk to any of the many bars or restaurants in town or just hang out and listen to music at the Beach Bar, 2 minutes away. Or get some of the best and cheapest barbecue ever from Uncle Joe's and sit on the balcony and watch the sun set as you eat your dinner. So many choices!!

Check out our reviews and I think you'll get a very good sense of the kind of experience you can expect to have renting from us. And by renting directly from us, the owners, you can avoid the significant booking fee imposed by vrbo on rentals made through them.

Most importantly, just relax and enjoy this very special spot. We are sure you will love St John and Grande Bay as much as we do -- it would be virtually impossible not to.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Betty and I and our three daughters, Katie, Maggie and Jackie, have been coming to St John continuously for over 20 years. It was love at first sight and we all think of it as our second home. When the Grande Bay project was announced, we jumped at the chance to own our own place in paradise.

Why the Owner Chose Upper Carolina (Coral Bay, St. John, USVI):
Grande Bay is in a wonderful location -- so convenient to town, yet with spectacular water views. We specifically chose to be in the rear building on the second floor away from the street and any noise and higher up to maximize the spectacular view. We think we have the best location within Grande Bay which itself has the best location of any condo in St John. And be advised that our's is a full one bedroom condo with a full sized kitchen and living/dining room; the penthouses at Grande Bay are lovely, but have much smaller kitchens and very small living rooms. We absolutely love our location and unit!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The view simply can't be beat!
