About the Property

2BR/1BA Townhome near Town/NP Beaches; Sea & Sunset Views; A/C; Private Terrace

Affordable Elegance!

Bliss: a totally renovated 2BR/1BA, 2-story penthouse unit at Cruz Views (#1). Only unit available direct through owner! If you look at the picture of the peach-colored building, that whole building is Bliss (like a stand-alone, private villa of your own at condo prices--the best of both worlds!!)

The location can NOT be beat! Close to everything--walkable down to town with its fabulous restaurants and charming shops, 5 minutes from National Park Beaches--yet up in the hills high enough to be a peaceful retreat.

Not only completely remodeled, Bliss also has all updated furnishings including new beds as well as all new bedding including 1800 thread count sheets!, kitchen supplies, appliances, entertainment systems, and Central Air-Conditioning to keep you comfortable all year long!

Bliss's upstairs bedroom provides you with the option of either 2 twin beds or 1 extremely comfortable king bed.

The amazing Caribbean views--including Pillsbury Sound with a myriad of cays and small islands nestled within it, St. Thomas with it's nightly 'twinkly light' display, and daytime views of sailboats skimming along the surface, even regattas--are also yours within the unit itself. Half the time when I watch tv in the living area, I'm instead looking outside the windows at the view! Views from the upstairs bedroom are incredible.

Bliss also includes your own private parking spot right above the unit and--set among a lovely tropical garden frequently scented with jasmine--is a beautiful saline-filtered pool (gentle on your skin) shared with the guests from the other 9 units but often yours alone!

Not only is there a gas grill, tables, chairs, and chaise lounges on the pool deck but also a gazebo--offering great Caribbean views as well--where guests frequently gather at the end of the day to toast the sunset together and share their beach/snorkeling/hiking/sailing adventures of the day.

You also have your own little private tropical garden enclosed within Bliss's private deck area, where you'll find your beach chairs and coolers as well.

Bliss: offering you all the comforts of home along with the unique tropical experience of enjoying the Caribbean of the past--since St. John is 2/3 National Park, most of its pristine beaches and tropical forest covered hills have thankfully been preserved in their original state, unmarred and unscarred by the rampant development characterizing most other Caribbean islands today.

Welcome to my dream--my home in Paradise!





Keywords: Penthouse Unit #1 at Cruz Views, now rented direct by owner, this 2 bedroom St. John vacation rental in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) offers all contemporary comforts along with timeless 'old Caribbean' views, tropical gardens, pool, in a private, quiet, location but near to all the best that
St. John has to offer: Its world-reknown National Park Beaches are a 5-minute drive, you can walk down to town, Cruz Bay, but are up high enough to be away from the noise and busyness, relax, retreat, and enjoy magnificent Virgin Island sunset views, affordable luxury for a honeymoon, anniversary, family vacation; this stand-alone townhouse-type vacation rental is part of a small, quiet, intimate complex with just 10 units--St. John's best kept secret.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: There's only one thing better than being in that incredible water around St. John and that's being in it while holding your newest grandchild :-)

Why the Owner Chose Estate Enighed, Saint John, USVI:
From the moment I first stepped on the old wooden dock in Cruz Bay, I felt like I was at peace and at home. That was more than 20 years ago and I still get that feeling every time I'm there. The natural beauty that characterizes St. John--largely unspoiled by any development on the 2/3 of the island that's National Park, the swimming and snorkeling right off the beach in that incredibly clear, warm, turquoise water--even in the midst of winter!, the smells, the sounds, the wildlife, the community feel of the island--I just love it!!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
It is SO nice to be anywhere I want to go--beach, restaurant, shopping, groceries, ferry, barge--in just a matter of minutes. At the same time I can stay comfortably ensconced in the comforts of the condo, cooking in while enjoying the cooling effects of the a/c, enjoying the views, quietly relaxing on the deck with my husband or friends or reading a book, or swimming my laps in the pool and enjoying the company and conversation with other guests under the gazebo while toasting the sunset together. Just an utterly lovely way to relax, retreat, or refresh myself. That's why I named the condo BLISS, which means 'peaceful joy, utter contentment, or blessedness.' It's what I feel when I'm there.
