St. John is a volcanic island offering white sand beaches, turquoise waters, mountain vistas and historical ruins. The Virgin Islands National Park encompasses over half of the island's nineteen square miles. Surrounded by coral reefs and seagrass beds, St. John offers excellent snorkeling from shore as well as diving excursions. If you prefer to hike, there are over twenty maintained hiking trails for your enjoyment.

About Tracy Pajewski, Owner

We have been visitors to St. John since our first trip in February of 2002. Since that visit, we have been back at least once a year and have shared the island with our children, friends and family members. We know that we are blessed to be able to realize our dream of owning property on St. John. We feel that we have found our place in paradise and we love sharing it with others.

Tracy Pajewski, Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why Tracy Pajewski, Owner chose Estate Enighed

We searched for years for the perfect place on St. John and came to love Grande Bay. The location right in town can not be beat. For us, the perfect day includes making breakfast, heading to a beach or two then coming home to clean up and head out to enjoy dinner. Grande Bay provides us with all the amenities of home with a full kitchen, large showers, comfortable furnishings and an easy walk to the perfect restaurant or bar. We know that you will love it as much as we do!

What makes this condo unique

When we have the opportunity to stay at Grande Bay, we enjoy having breakfast on the balcony while listening to the waves and watching Cruz Bay come to life. We love taking the beach chairs and coolers to a different beach each day and snorkeling or hiking up to Ram Head or along another amazing trail. We enjoy all the comforts of home along with staff that will assist us or answer any questions we might have. If we decide to forgo the beach, we have the option of relaxing on the pool deck and enjoying the pool and hot tub. We especially like parking our rental car and walking into town less than 100 yards for a delicious meal or island drink

We had an amazing week in this beautiful, perfectly put-together unit. With just two of us, it was wonderful to sleep right by the slider to the balcony, so that we could enjoy hearing the waves in the harbor lapping the shore all night. The studio unit had everything we needed and was clean and comfortable. Tracy (owner) was so easy to work with, and her staff did a great job of offering us assistance with arrival details, equipment and excursions, if wanted. Thank you all for a wonderful experience - we will definitely be back to Seaside Properties!!!

Great Getaway - Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little spot to get away from it all. Well appointed and clean. The views of the water were fantastic and the short walk across the street to the beach was great for our toddler. Strollers could be a little tricky with the narrow streets and walkways...we ventured without one. 50/50 on if we would do that again. There is apparently a baby place that rents backpacks and maybe strollers but we didn't see an ad for that until the last day. The rental person did a fantastic job of greeting us at the boat and giving us several tips on what to see and where to eat. We rented a jeep on St. John for a couple days to see coral bay, grab groceries and visit a few of the beaches. Maho and trunk bay were fun beaches. Renting on St Thomas might be a better option logicstically with a kiddo if you have long flights. The pedestrian ferry was great though and parking can be tricky. Baby food is cha ching and limited selection so bring what you need if your little one is picky or if you buy organic. Most everything else grocery wise has a more typical selection. The only downside was that Carnival was going on nearly every night we were there and it was LOUD late into the night. Thankfully our little one was exhausted from playing all day and slept through it. If we go back to St John we will definitely consider staying here again!

Amazing Suite & PERFECT location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to St. John (our favorite vacation destination), but our first time staying in the heart of Cruz Bay. The location of the Seaside studio suite at Grande Bay Resort could not have been any better! We loved that we were easily able to walk into town to all of the bars, shops and restaurants and even to some beaches. We rented a jeep, but at this location it's not a necessity as it's easy to catch a cab to get to the beaches, and it's an easy (and beautiful) hike to get to Honeymoon Beach. The Seaside suite is super clean and cute and has everything you need for your stay. (we appreciated the beach towels! There were also beach chairs and coolers available) We enjoyed grilling on the patio, and the beautiful views of the bay. There is also a pool and hot tub at Grande Bay, with amazing views! (we were the only ones using it, one of the pluses of being there during the down season!) Tracy, the owner, is super friendly & so was Sarah who picked us up at the ferry dock...thank you both for making our stay enjoyable! This vacation was amazing....we stayed on the go hiking and beach hopping...but, also found time to relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounded's such a peaceful place. I am already missing Seaside and St.'s a beautiful island which keeps bringing us back; I know when we return we will stay at Seaside again. If I could give Seaside 10 stars, I would!

Location can't be beat

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly spacious and clean studio with a great view of the bay. Loved getting up early and having a cup of coffee on the balcony. Had everything you could possibly need for making breakfast and lunch (you buy your own food of course) and also for the beach. Beach chairs and good size cooler are available. The air conditioning was not working correctly the day we arrived but one call to the front desk and it was handled promptly. One of the beach chairs broke and their management company replaced it right away with a brand new one. This is very we'll run and the studio itself is very comfortable, no need for anything larger unless you want to cook a lot when on vacation. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Owner is easy and pleasant to work with.
