About Marsha Blair

Marsha Blair purchased this condo in 2008

Why Marsha Blair chose Estate Enighed

We discovered St John after visiting St Thomas for 25 straight years and finding that island becoming more and more congested. St John proved the exact opposite and we immediately fell in love with the island's laid back lifestyle and spectacular beaches. We stayed at Grande Bay for three months a few years ago and love its proximity to the restaurants and night life of Cruz Bay, while remaining in walking distance from Grande Bay.

What makes this condo unique

Grande Bay is a short walking distance to town, where you'll find many restaurants and shops as well as the ferry dock and taxis. You can stay at Grande Bay and enjoy the pool or venture out and explore the many beaches the island offers. There is an underground parking garage and a security officer always on duty. The fully equipped fitness center is on site and overlooks Cruz Bay beach and harbor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'm a little behind on getting this to you but I just wanted to write a quick thank you for letting myself and my friends stay at the Southern Serenity a couple of weeks ago in May! I cannot express how much we enjoyed ourselves and your beautiful condo! With the comfort of home in a destination so beautiful it was the perfect place to spend our week! We were there specifically for a destination wedding however we were able to enjoy all of the beautiful beaches and restaurants that St. John had to offer. The pictures we took from your patio just do not do it any justice- just to sit out there in the morning and watch the sunrise and the boats come in was breathtaking!! We were beyond comfortable with the space the condo provided, and the extra luxury of having beach chairs and coolers available to us was such a welcomed treat that made for long relaxing beach days!!

Highly recommended this 3 bedroom

  • 5 of 5

This 3 bedroom was so beautiful and was perfect for our family. The view of Cruz bay was absolutely breathtaking and was so convenient when walking into town. From the moment we arrived in town we were greeted from the property manager at the ferry, which was amazing. In addition, any questions we had the property manager was glad to answer and got back to us very quickly. My husband and I are already trying to figure out when we can get back to this beautiful condo and island. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for their own slice of heaven while in St. John!!!

It was good to be back

  • 5 of 5

It was so nice to get back to Saint John/ Its been less than a year since we saw it last and with Irma and Maria we were not sure what to expect. We had braced ourselves for the worse but found things to be in pretty good order. The Condo itself has been fully restored with some updates that help. Just a few punch list items that having us in there probably did not help them knock out.

But StJ was back. if you had never been to Cruz Bay you would never know those two storms came through. Most of the north Shore beaches actually GAINED sand. The down side and the heartbreaking side if the salt wash that killed the low spots behind Cinnamon, behind Maho and on Coral Bay. Just big brown areas there but the whole rest of the island is lush and Green like we love and why we will keep coming back!

Beautiful unit with great views!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very clean and beautifully furnished. Everything we needed to be comfortable was provided. There's a fantastic coffee shop and convenience store up the hill for anything extra you may need. Much cheaper that the super market in town. Lovely pool, great views and close to town. Highly recommended.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best complex to stay in if you want to be close to town. It was the closest place to Cruz Bay. Just next door were the bars and restaurants and the taxi stand was a 5 minute walk. We did not rent a car and didn't need one, we were able to walk everywhere or get a taxi. The condo was really nice and clean. It was well taken care of and the owners were very responsive in making sure everything was taken care of. We would definitely stay here again if we ever came back to St John.
