Close to town, but not loud. Wonderful view from the balcony. Reserved spot for a rental car (jeep) Elevators Modern Great kitchen, washer/dryer. We travel in the summer and fall to get the low season rates. We live in Florida so do not need to escape the cold of winter. Fall is a GREAT time to go.

We stayed in a VRBO one bedroom that was great. Second floor. No noise from street below. Could sit on our balcony and watch the ferries and boats in harbor. We were about 40 feet from the water. The ability to walk to all restaurants and bars and ferry was one of the best features. Pool and hot tub were...

If you are looking for complete comfort, high quality and convenience to the Cruz Bay restaurants/bars, the Grande Bay is the place to stay in St. John. We visit St. John every year and have stayed here for the past 4 years. From booking our trips with Dawn to the impeccable customer service from Paul and Suzanne during this visit,...

With it being our first time in St John I was debating whether to stay in town or not. We were so glad we chose Grande Bay. Fantastic views of the bay and only 100 yards from Cruz Bay. The location was easy to walk to all of the bars, restaurants, and jeep rental places in Cruz Bay. The pool,...

We stayed in a condo at Grande Bay with our 3 children (19, 17, & 9) and it was the perfect fit for our needs exceeding our expectations! The location was great, within walking distance of our favorite spots, The Beach Bar, Joe's Rum Hut and of course, Woody's!! We rented a Jeep and had a parking spot in the...

Nice pool, nice staff, Clean and so close to EVERYTHING!! We love that we could walk and have a few cocktails and not worry about driving around. You can hear the ocean if you open your patio door. Wifi is not the best BUT at least there is wifi :)

Our family of 5 was very comfortable in a 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo on the first level of Grande Bay. This location was an easy walk to anything in Cruz Bay... ferry, restaurants, bars, shopping and pick up for some boat excursions. The view from our balcony was a beautiful view of the bay. Communication from the staff prior...

Good location with nice balconies and views. Note: Bring your own coffee. On our first morning, after a late delayed arrival, we couldn't find any, but were told they had coffee in the lobby. Not only did it not open until 8am (most folks I know need coffee way earlier than that), but when we stumbled down at 8:02, we...

Dear TravelingMel33, Thank you for your feedback on your stay. I couldn't agree more that being "attacked" by our external marketer was not an ideal way to begin your stay, especially when you didn't even have coffee yet! I have spoken to the sales team and have asked them to be a little more astute and perceptive in dealing with...
