About The Owner

As an environmental engineer and a communications director with full schedules, we enjoy returning to St. John often to relax and enjoy the beauty all around us. Our three adults children are frequent visitors as well.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Great Cruz Bay

After years of exploring the Virgin Islands through bareboat sailing rentals, we settled on St. John because of the spectacular scenery, the warmth of the island people, and the perfect weather.

What makes this condo unique

We love to hike all over the island, and there is scarcely a trail we have not traveled. After a full day, it's a pleasure to relax in the hot tub. Sometimes we prepare dinner on our balcony grill; other times it's nice to walk the block to many outstanding restaurants.

Very nice condo with beautiful harbor view

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we've stayed in this condo, so we obviously love it. You can't beat the location, just steps from several restaurants, bars and shops in Cruz Bay. The owner provides beach towels, beach chairs and coolers. The king size bed is very comfortable and the kitchen is modern and had everything we needed.

Another great visit to St. John

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Grande Bay was perfect. The two adjoining units provided for time together but also privacy for each couple. We love the location as it is great for walking to dinner at many wonderful restaurants. The welcome complimentary cocktail gathering is a nice way to get tips from regular visitors. The service was perfect from initial inquiry through our return home. I will definitely rent here again in the future. Thanks for your help and great hospitality.

Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted to thank you for allowing us to enjoy your Grande Bay condo for the past 11 days!! We had an amazing honeymoon and could not have asked for a better choice! We were fortunate to have 2 friends that live on St. Thomas, so they were able to show us around both St. John and St. Thomas!! We went to the Baths, Trunk Bay, Megan's Bay, Jost Van Dyke, etc!! Such a beautiful place in paradise you have!! I hope we are able to make it back sooner than later!! Everyone was very nice and helpful as well!!

A 10 in All Respects

  • 5 of 5

We leased the 2 bedroom unit in August 2012 for the last week of June 2013, so we had been planning this vacation for a long time. We were definitely not disappointed. The condo was just as described. Both the 1 bedroom and the studio are furnished very nicely. There is not a single thing that we would change. It was very convenient having the washer/dryer in the bedroom. To start our day on the balcony with our morning coffee watching the boats go out for the day was wonderful. The location could not be better. In 5 minutes you can be downtown at some very good restaurants. We were little bit worried about the noise from downtown, but even with the festival beginning while we were there, it was not a problem. Even if you lease through VRBO from the owner, the owner has a management company on the island to meet you upon arrival and assist when needed. This is a good personal touch. We had a small A/C problem in the studio that was taken care of in 15 minutes. One could not ask for better care. We hope to return next year.

True Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the 1 bedroom condo for 8 nights. After a rough winter, we had a fantastic vacation! This condo is not only in the perfect location, it is very clean, spacious, and tropically beautiful. Everything you need for the beach, making meals, and even doing some laundry is all supplied. They even have extra sun block lotion and bug spray which you'll need when you have your early morning coffe on the scenic deck. I miss the sound of the water lapping against the shore! Even though it is close to town, it's not noisy at all at night. We chose not to rent a car because the condo is within easy walking distance to all the shops, resaurants, Dolphin Market, and open air taxis that take you to all the beaches. You can even walk to some of the trails. If you want to explore more of the island, you can rent a car for just a day.

We chose Grande Bay initially because of the very close proximity to downtown Cruz Bay but we will be returning to Grande Bay and staying in one of Anna May and Peter's condos because they were so kind and accomodating when an unexpected health issue arose and travel needed to be postponed.

The description and photos of this condo are true to form. It is very clear that these owners take great pride in their property. If you book with them, believe me, you'll be very happy you did - they've thought of everything!

St. John Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this lovely two-bedroom unit. The decor was "island"y and inviting, the views were spectacular and every amenity you could possibly need was there waiting for us, including some nice cold Caribes in the refrigerator. We have stayed on St. John for the past 22 years and each year is better than the one before. Many thanks to the owners for their kind hospitality. We will be back!!

This property is one block from town restaurants and shops, as well as the ferry from St. Thomas. The building is 40 feet from the waterfront in the Cruz Bay harbor, where there is a beach. However, the world-renowned beaches are 5 minute away by safari taxis ($5-$6 per person each way) or a 30 minute walk via the Lind Point Trail behind the National Park Service.
