Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-8)

Welcome to our brand new beautifully furnished and decorated condo in the new Cruz Bay luxury resort, Grande Bay. Our condo can be rented either as a one bedroom unit ('Sugar"),, or as a studio unit ('Spice"). each sleeping up to four people. We are currently offering s introductory discounts to introduce you to our home. Grande Bay is a 48 unit resort directly on the water and only a three to five minute walk to 'downtown' Cruz Bay with the ferry and all its restaurants, bars and shops. We have spectacular views of the Caribbean and harbor with St Thomas in the distance from both balconies. We have an especially good location 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 town. It is quiet, private and has great panoramic views. Use our apartment as your base to explore the most magnificent island on earth.

Our large two bedroom unit comes fully equipped with high end furnishings in the Caribbean style. We have a very unique and welcoming floor plan. On one side of the condo is a traditional one bedroom apartment ('Sugar'), complete with master bedroom with a king sized four poster bed, dresser, desk and its own balcony. It also has a flat screen cable TV. We then have a living room with queen sleeper sofa, and there is an elegant glass-topped dining room table. You can eat there or on the magnificent balcony looking out over the water. Or you can sit on the stools at the granite kitchen counter overlooking the fully equipped stainless steel kitchen. In the evening, enjoy the 40' flat screen cable TV with Blu-Ray or our stereo with CD player or just sit on the balcony and enjoy the view.

Next door is the studio apartment ('Spice') with a Caribbean style king bed in the sleeping area and a queen sleeper sofa and table in the living area of the studio, complete with its own second 40' flat screen cable TV and stereo. The studio has its own balcony with the same magnificent views. We also have a separate small apartment sized kitchen with sink and small refrigerator, microwave, grill and small electric appliances, and a separate apartment sized washer and dryer.

Also, the one bedroom side and the studio are internally connected and can be configured to form a large two bedroom apartment, but both also have their separate outside entrances and the internal door between them can be left open or closed Each side sleeps up to four people (four in beds; four on sleeper sofas), so we are perfect for a family or two couples or families traveling together. And you can rent the condo in its entirety as the full two bedroom or separately as either a one bedroom apartment or as a studio apartment.

Use our apartment as your base to discover the paradise that is St John! If you rent a car, park in our garage beneath the building (parking is at a real 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 imaginable. In the evening, walk to one of the many bars or restaurants in town, or listen to music at the Beach Bar, just two 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 terrific choices! But most importantly, just relax and enjoy this very special spot. We are certain that you will love St John and Grande Bay as much as we do -- it would be virtually impossible not to.

Grande Bay Studio

  • 4 of 5

Exactly what I expected: a perfectly fine studio with everything you would expect to find, and then some, especially if you have no plans to cook. The then some: beach chairs , coolers, and water toys. Being in town (the essential reason my wife and I chose this place) simplifies access to shopping, restaurants, markets.

Perfect place for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

On our previous 2 visits to St. John we stayed in villas and rented a car. This time we wanted to be in town and we LOVED our stay in this condo! The studio was plenty big for me and my husband and it was so great being able to walk to lots of restaurants, bars and shopping. Hopping a taxi to different beaches was a breeze and we never had to think about parking or driving those twisty roads at night! The condo is lovely and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We were able to have breakfast and snacks/drinks and ate out for lunch and dinner. The view is fabulous and we spent most of our time on the balcony, where our tiny pet lizard often joined us. Overall, we were so pleased with Grande Bay and the condo and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Tom was very easy to work with as was the management company.

A long Dive Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I have been to St John many times and know the area well. When planning a guys scuba weekend, I knew the best place to stay would be right in Cruz Bay. Through VRBO, I found "Sugar N' Spice". Upon arrival at the ferry dock, we were greeted and escorted to the Condo. Once there, we were given the lay of the land, which included all of the amenities at Grande Bay. The condo overlooks Cruz Bay, but is protected from the hustle and bustle and loud noises. If you are into scuba diving, Grande Bay is a 2 minute walk to Low Key Dive Shop. Also, Grande Bay sponsors a managers reception at "Drink" on Mondays and Thursdays. Free drinks and apps.

The condo was very well appointed and upscale. The view is top notch and the location unbeatable. HIGHLY recommend "Sugar N' Spice". You will not be disappointed!!

Perfect vacation stay!

  • 5 of 5

Like all the other reviewers said, you can't beat the location! We've been to St. John many times but this was our first stay at Grande Bay and the convenience of being so close to town will definitely bring us back. The greeter was very helpful before and after we arrived. We stayed in the studio unit and had a great view from the balcony looking out over Cruz Bay. We would sit out in the morning with our coffee and watch all the activity going on in the harbor. It was exactly the way you would imagine paradise.

We were also pleasantly surprised to see that the studio included a washer and dryer. The unit was clean and updated. There were beach chairs and coolers to use as well as beach towels. I would recommend staying here to anyone and would definitely love to come back!

What a fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property, and would certainly recommend it to anyone. Outstanding views over Cruz Bay (it is among the highest units), and great location - within walking distance to car rentals, restaurants, shopping, right by the beach - everything was perfect. Oh, and the bed was sooo comfortable!

We Are a Five Minute Walk from the Center of Cruz Bay. 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 very best in the world. In ten minutes you will be at Hawksnest, and then on to Oppenheimer, Trunk Bay, Cinnamon, Francis Bay and beyond, to name a few, all within the protected boundaries of the National Park. You can take your beach towels, chairs and coolers from the unit, so pack a lunch and make it a day.
