About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom with Ocean Views

Good Day Sunshine is a charming townhome that sits on top of a breezy hill overlooking three bays: Great Cruz Bay, Chocolate Hole and Rendezvous Bay, as well as outer islands and, on a clear day, St. Croix. Located in small 11 unit group known as Upper Deck Villas.

Decorated in cheerful Caribbean colors, there are local artwork and owner's photos of the island on the walls. Located within a small development of seven two-story buildings in a quiet, landscaped setting, this well-maintained condo has two upstairs bedrooms. There are queen sized beds in each bedroom. One bedroom has private deck with panoramic ocean views. Both bedrooms are air-conditioned.

One bathroom is located on each floor for easy access.

Grocery stores and restaurants, as well as take-out food are available only a few minutes away. National Park beaches are located 10-15 minutes away, but you can also enjoy the pool just a few steps away.

Quiet neighborhood just outside the hustle and bustle of downtown Cruz Bay.

About Corina Gordon

I fell in love with St. John as a child on a family vacation. Growing up and living in the mountains of Telluride, CO, I had long dreamed of having a beach retreat. I fell in love with St. John all over again when visiting in late 2012. To me it offers the best of both worlds, beautiful beaches, remote feel and security of being a U.S. territory.

Corina Gordon purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Corina Gordon chose Estate Bethany

Many properties were looked at on the quest to find the perfect spot. Nothing compared to the views, pool and Cruz Bay convenience as Upper Deck Villas.

What makes this townhome unique

Panoramic ocean views, beautiful pool and constant trade winds make Upper Deck Villas the ideal location.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our hosts were delightful and very helpful. The property was clean and comfortable. Well located from town and the beaches. The view is unbelievable. The stay was great! I would would go back to this location again. The food in allthe places were pretty good. A little pricey but this is island food. No fast food places here. Lime Inn was the best.

Good Day Sunshine was a great property with nice amenities and spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in St. John thanks to Corina and her property, Good Day Sunshine! Corina was very helpful and provided personalized service including assistance with transportation from the ferry, on site tour of the property as well as tips for local sight seeing locations and great restaurants! Good Day Sunshine was located in a quiet area that allowed for relaxation and quality family time. The property offered nice amenities including a well equipped kitchen, comfortable sleeping, quality linens, high speed internet, satellite TV, washer/dryer as well as beach chairs and coolers that made our trips to the beach easy! The property also has a pool which was great for early morning or evening swims! The villa was well maintained and clean! We would highly recommend Good Day Sunshine to anyone looking for a fun, relaxing and affordable vacation. We hope to return in the future!

Good Day Sunshine is a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Good Day Sunshine is aptly named with upper and lower decks, awesome views of the Caribbean, and cool breezes. The villa is centrally located to all the enjoyments of the island while tucked away in a private and serene setting. The villa has all the comforts of home, very clean, comfy beds, and lots open spaces to bring in the amazing views of the Caribbean and island.

Corina Gordon was great to work with and I would highly recommend renting this villa. Visiting St John is like being in paradise and staying at Good Day Sunshine made it all the better!

First of all - Good Day Sunshine is one of the best, most affordable places on the island. You have 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths which made the stay for 4 us super comfortable. The breezes kept the unit cool and the a/c took care of the night. This unit is in an ideal location for staying on the island. And the proximtity to Cruz Bay where the ferry arrives means your arrival and (unfortunately) departure is made easier. Corina was great upon welcoming and available if we needed her. Over all - I highly recommend this unit if you plan on visiting St John. I am hoping to rebook for August...

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my 26 year old daughter and myself were all captivated by St. John! It started with a rainbow to greet us when we docked. We had constant communication from our greeter who was right there to meet us at the dock. She gave us a brief tour of Cruz Bay. We booked our jeep through Corina as well, which helped move things along. The photos of our rental did not do it justice! We loved the balconies and the views were to die for! We did notice the water in the pool was gone due to a last minute problem, and it was corrected the next day. We utilized the cooler and the beach chairs daily. We always love traveling to a place where we feel safe, and that we did! We traveled everywhere and enjoyed parasailing, snorkeling, hiking, shopping, paddle boarding, and eating! Every place we ate was excellent! I loved hearing why people moved here too! I would highly recommend Good Day Sunshine for the view, breezes, pool, and the attention to detail by the management!

Beautiful views, great stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo on St John. The views from the decks are amazing and the condo is very clean and comfortable. Corina was extremely welcoming and very helpful with area recommendations. The location is within just minutes of Cruz Bay shops and restaurants. I feel that renting a jeep is a must on the island. We loved Trunk Bay, Waterlemon Cay, Francis Bay and Hansen Bay.

Great place!! Absolutely loved it!!

Great place to stay with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The property has a spectacular view. Couldn't have asked for a more convenient location, only about 5 minutes to Cruz bay or Mongoose junction. I would highly recommend this property and will definitely be back.
