About Anna May Charrington

This couple has 3 married children who also enjoy hiking and snorkeling on St. John. He is an environmental engineer; she is a communications director.

Anna May Charrington purchased this studio in 2011

Why Anna May Charrington chose Estate Enighed

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

What makes this studio unique

We love the ever-changing vistas of the harbor: pelicans diving, sailboats coming and going. Hiking and snorkeling are our favorite activities. The proximity to town is another plus - we love leaving the car behind and walking to the many wonderful restaurants in Cruz Bay.

Perfect Everything!

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting St John since the early 80's...We have stayed at the Westin, Gallows Point and we have also rented several houses....We stayed at Grande Bay on 2 other occasions. We have not been back since the last hurricane so we were anxious to return! This Studio could not have been better! It is well equipped for anything you need for the beach ( beach chairs, towels ). grill to bar b que, toiletries etc! The view is just beautiful! The staff in Grande Bay were the nicest and friendliest people. The location is so perfect to walk to shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again next visit!

We loved our stay in St.John. The condo was lovely , well equipped and very convenient. We would recommend it to everyone! The location is perfect. You were so thoughtful to keep us updated after the hurricane.

The front desk lady was most helpful and all the island people were lovely.

It was a perfect vacation spot. Thank you for allowing us to stay.

Amazing vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The condo was amazing. They provided everything you needed for a good time...a tent, towels, chairs, cooler, snorkel gear, and floats. We didn't get a chance to hang at the pool because there were so many beaches to go see. St. John still had some growing to do but it has came so far in such a short period of time. We would definitely come back to St. John and stay at Grande Bay.

Fantastic first experience on St. John

  • 5 of 5

We spent our first week ever March 19-26, 2018 on St. John in this Grande Bay studio and loved every minute of our time! The communication after our booking and prior to our visit was outstanding - and Anna and Peter continued to offer hospitality and kindness to make our first STJVI visit exceptional. (we will definitely be returning) The studio was darling as well as comfortable and offered great views of Cruz Bay over morning coffee and evening cocktails. Our days were spent on the beautiful beaches (Trunk, Hawksnest, Cinnamon, Maho, Frances, Salt Pond) and we soon found that our favorite beach on St. John was 'the next one'. Each night we enjoyed walking from the studio to the shops and great restaurants & bars (the Landing, North Shore Deli,High Tide, Morgan's Mango, Longboard, Greengo's, Woody's, Rhumb Line, Banana Deck .....) nearby. Scenic jeep rides took us to Starfish Market (great grocery/bakery) and Columbo's (for a smoothie) as well as visits to Skinnylegs, Lucy's and Aqua Bistro in Coral Bay. Although the island is still recovering/reblooming after the hurricanes, we were met with beauty in our surroundings and the people at each turn. Can't wait to come back!
