Place is nothing short of perfect for us and we are still here. Pool is great and a view of the bay. Accommodations are super, new, and clean. You will be checked in by Dawn who takes care of everything and does it well. Only complaint is we have to leave tomorrow. Very short walk to everything in Cruz Bay,... More

We just had a fantastic weekend staying in an independently owned 1 bedroom, Egret's Rest. The condo was impeccably clean and supplied with all the little fun extras that make it special... coffee, make-up remover pads, condiments, even beach coolers, chairs & noodles. Our balcony was the perfect spot to watch the ferries & people in Cruz Bay. The resort... More

Stayed in a 1 bedroom unit via VRBO directly from owner. What a wonderful experience. Covered parking, with walking distance of bars, many dining options, sailing and boat tours, car rental locations, etc. Well appointed rooms including full kitchens, a pool deck overlooking the bay, and more. There is some construction going on beyond one end of the resort but... More

I think it's pretty much general knowledge how beautiful St. John is, The questions are....Where to stay? Where to go? What to do?. Before I get into some tips, I just want to say that St. John lives up to it's reputation for spectacular beaches. What makes them great is not only the blue water and white sand, but that... More

Really did my homework using the TA forum. We do not know anyone who had ever been to St. John. Grande Bay's location was the selling point.

Grande Bay in Cruz Bay proved to be a great location for our vacation. We were within walking distance to all the restaurants and even a small grocery store in town.
