Grande Bay Gorgeous 2br With Million Dollar View

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property


Southern Serenity IV - the perfect 2 bedroom condo, the perfect location in Cruz Bay and the perfect resort - Grande Bay Resort. Everything you need to make your vacation on St John perfect.

Our gorgeous condo is located very high within the Grande Bay Resort in the upper buildings - actually three stories up because the garage is on the ground floor - to give you a beautiful view to start your mornings or have a night-cap and enjoy the priceless view overlooking Cruz Bay and nine gorgeous Caribbean islands, including St Thomas. An elevator takes you right to your doorstep.

Southern Serenity IV is a spacious, two bedroom lockout condo, but can be rented as a one-bedroom or studio, if you need less space. Each side has its own outside entrance and the door that separates the one-bedroom side from the studio can also be locked for privacy.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped with granite countertops, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, dishes, glassware, coffee pot, blender, pots and pans, and many other kitchen gadgets – everything you need whether practicing your gourmet skills or just snacking. Our goal is to make certain you have everything you need to make your stay on St John absolutely fantastic.

The living room has a queen sleeper-sofa, chair, dining area, plasma TV and a stereo system that plays CDs or your Ipod. WIFI and telephone service within the United States are FREE for your use. The artwork is done by local artists.

The king bedroom features island décor, with a dresser, full-length mirror, large closet and its own private balcony.

The studio has a king bed, queen sleeper, bath and its own kitchenette, plus its own balcony overlooking Cruz Bay.

The large main balcony is the perfect place to start your day. Its million dollar view simply cannot be matched anywhere on the island. Most quests eat most of their meals there, or if they are not cooking, find this the perfect spot for evening cocktails before dinner.

Grande Bay Resort provides a fantastic swimming pool and large pool deck to sunbathe. There is also a large Jacuzzi. Our gym features the very best equipment for a good workout. The Resort is just steps away from the center of Cruz Bay where you can enjoy shopping, several beach bars and more than 70 local restaurants, ranging from island-casual to elegant. Many guests and locals gather each evening during the Beach Bar's Happy Hour to watch the sunset.

St John is unique among Caribbean Islands in that 75% of the island is controlled by the U.S. National Park Service. That means that there are not rows and rows of hotels along the beaches, which is the primary reason our beaches are the best found in the Caribbean. There are as many as 75 little bays where you can snorkel, more than 20 beaches with wonderful sand, and numerous hiking trails up and down the steep mountains that bring so much beauty to our little island. We have travelled to almost every island in the Caribbean and none are as beautiful or tranquil as St John.

We provide everything to make your stay pleasant. We are stocked with linens and towels in each bath, beach towels, beach chairs, coolers and some floats and snorkel gear. We provide FREE wifi and telephone service to the States. If you do not have your own gear, there is also a dive shop right beside the resort that rents gear. Paddleboards, kayaks, dingys and motorboats can also be rented.

If this is your first trip to the island, please let us know and we will send you our recommendations for restaurants and beaches. Our manager will also make recommendations upon your arrival.

Once you book, our management company, St John Villa Company, will contact you to assist you with any needs you may have, from arranging jeep rentals to provisioning and also arrange to meet you at the ferry dock on your arrival and escort you to the condo.

Our two bedroom, Southern Serenity IV, is #813243

Past guests at any of our St John properties are entitled to a 10% discount on room rates. Approximately 65% of our guests are returning guests, which we believe makes a big statement about their experience on prior trips. We invite you to browse our reviews.

About Marsha Blair

Jim and Marsha are married with three grown children and seven grandchildren, which add to their very busy lives. They live on a little barrier island off the coast of North Carolina called Emerald Isle. They love travel, golf and meeting people from around the world.

Marsha Blair purchased this condo in 2016

Why Marsha Blair chose Estate Enighed

We discovered St John after visiting St Thomas for 25 straight years and finding that island becoming more and more congested. St John proved the exact opposite and we immediately fell in love with the island's laid back lifestyle and spectacular beaches. We stayed at Grande Bay Resort for three months a few years ago and love its proximity to the restaurants and night life of Cruz Bay, while remaining within walking distance to Grande Bay.

What makes this condo unique

Grande Bay is just steps from Cruz Bay, where you'll find many restaurants and shops, as well as the ferry dock and taxis. You can stay at Grande Bay and enjoy the pool or venture out and explore the many beaches the island offers. There is an underground parking garage and a security is always on duty. The fully equipped fitness center is on property where you can work-out while taking in the beauty of Cruz Bay.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 2nd stay in this unit and cannot recommend it highly enough. It is in an ideal location. Great view. Safe area. It was a very quick walk to the dock and most restaurants and bars, so you do not have to mess with the parking in Cruz Bay or worry about drinking. The condo itself was nicely decorated and probably the best equipped of any I have stayed at. It was stocked with laundry soap, dish soap, toiletries, coffee filters etc. as well as the beach essentials- multiple coolers, high quality beach chairs and beach towels. There was on site parking for our Jeep rental, which we used to explore all of the great north shore beaches during the day. The owners are a delight to work with. We will definitely be returning for a 3rd trip!

Great area and condo was perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect condo for 2 couples traveling together. We each had our own bathroom and king size bedroom and plenty of space. The view is amazing from the balconies and we enjoyed our stay here very much! It is just a short walk from the pier to the condo and was easy to do with our luggage in tow. Everything you need in regard to food, drinks and shopping is within walking distance. Gina was very helpful in booking all of our tours prior to us arriving. I highly recommend Grand Bay and this condo if you are traveling with more than 2 people!
