About the Property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Buena Vida is located in Cruz Bay and was completed and began renting in late 2010. This is a one bedroom, one bath 1,212 sq/ft Penthouse unit on the top level of the first row of Grande Bay. In addition to having unobstructed views, this Penthouse has a Caribbean influenced design that incorporates airy vaulted ceilings and interior living areas that are surrounded by three outdoor living verandas and decks. The front veranda looks to the west, north and east and has great views of Cruz Bay Harbor, and sunsets over St Thomas. On the east side is a veranda that also has views that stretch from west to east. On the west side is a comfortable lanai (an outdoor living area) plus a sun patio off the master bedroom. The air-conditioned interior contains a second living area, the kitchen and the bedroom and bath.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: We are two couples who are old friends from the midwest. We were looking for a great warm place to escape to from the cold winters.

Why Great Cruz Bay Estates (Bethany, Cruz Bay, St. John 00830, USVI):
The property is well located on the island and convenient to all services. It is with in easy walking distance from the ferry dock so no car is really needed. It's great if you get in late and are ready to just walk to the condo. The short walk takes you past a number of restaurants and beach bars in case you need a snack or a drink on the way home.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Location close to ferry dock, restaurants and shopping. Beautiful views of St. John, St. Thomas, Cruz Bay Harbor and the Caribbean Sea.
