Property description

Welcome island lovers, St. John is the most unspoiled island in the Caribbean! Once on St. John, location is everything, and our upper building, 2-bedroom condo offers abundant space & privacy for 2-couples, or a family of 5-6. If you don’t need 2 bedrooms/2 baths then please inquire about our 1Br Suite with full-kitchen or our Studio with kitchenette.

If this will be your first-time visit to St. John – what took you so long? Seriously, if you are considering other islands, happy to highlight why St. John is the right choice for most, and why Grande Bay’s location in Cruz Bay is unbeatable. But, we are not the right choice for all. For example, if you want a big casino, then St. John is not right for you. If you want the Ritz, stay on St. Thomas. And, if you want daily maid service or room service, then our condo is not the right place either. (Although we can provide daily maid service for an extra fee.) But if you want a resort experience for condo prices, with everything that St. John has to offer a walk, hike, brief drive away, then keep reading.

And all you scuba divers should know that Low Key Watersports, the dive shop on St. John, is now directly next door to Grande Bay, so you can roll out of bed for your morning dives!

Location is THE key – from our condo you have easy access to the pool and hot-tub, as our upper building location within the resort is the closest proximity to the elevated pool and sun-deck. Our upper building condo is offered as a One-Bedroom with 4-poster King bed, separate family room & a full kitchen, or as a Studio with 2-poster Queen bed & kitchenette, or combine the two and you have spacious 2 Bedroom/2 Bath condo great for two couples, or an extended family. There is additional sofa-bedding in both units to accommodate families of 6-8 dependent on age of kids & sleeping arrangements.

Our Studio + 1Br = TWO bedroom condo is unique — there is an electric grill on the private deck of the 1Br, and the owner’s kayak is available for your use! Guests have complimentary snorkel gear when staying in either the Studio & 1Br side, and island artwork throughout the condo keeps you in the island spirit when indoors. (Check out our pictures.)

The grill, parking space, and kayak use conveys with the larger 1Br side (or when renting both sides as a Two-Bedroom.) There is a separate stack washer/dryer in both the Studio and 1BR, so you can pack light regardless of which unit you select!

The owners have traveled extensively in the Caribbean and collected art from the USVI to the Grenadines, and our condo is decorated with one-of-a-kind underwater oil paintings by a famous French artist who resides in the Grenadines. Everything about this condo is focused on increasing your enjoyment of the Caribbean and the unspoiled island of St. John.

While away, you can remain connected to home, as all condos at GRANDE BAY have FREE LONG-DISTANCE calling to the USA, so if you need to check-in with the mainland, you can! (There is a cordless land-line in each of the two units, with distinct phone numbers, and wireless service.)

This condo is a rare lock-out, not many at Grande Bay, and really the most flexible layout for owners and guests. You can rent the larger ONE BEDROOM side only, the STUDIO side only, or both, as they are separated by a lock-out door in between.

With both sides rented, we can sleep two families up to six, 7-8 depending on the age/size of the kids & coziness! From the water toys, to the luxurious bedding, our condo has it all, including the closest proximity of any to the resort pool, sun deck, the gym and the hot-tub. The gym includes a top of the line PILATES machine, treadmills, a recumbent bike trainer, an elliptical, & live weights. And the pool is truly unique, with ceramic inserts of turtles and other sea-life, designed by the owner of this condo.

The smaller Studio with kitchenette, on its own, is really perfect for a couple, and is the most economical choice. Regardless of your choice, you will have spectacular Caribbean views from the private front terraces of either, and enjoy all that Grande Bay Resort has to offer. 

Here’s more detail – the private master bedroom of the larger 1Br side has a KING size solid teak, four poster bed in the West Indian style, with a pillow-top mattress and Ralph Lauren fine cotton bedding. The bedroom also has an en-suite full bath, its own 42′ LCD TV with DVD player (no cable in MBR), a safe in the large closet, and an oversized stack washer/dryer in a dedicated closet. The main living area of the one-bedroom side includes a love seat, and easy chair with ottoman, a queen sleeper sofa, a wall mounted 42′ LCD TV connected to cable with DVD and library of DVD’s, an iPod player, board games, and a desk. There is alos a bar with three stools ideal for breakfast indoors. The front terrace can accommodate four for breakfast, with a rattan coffee table, four chairs, and two side tables. It is really another room, and with a view that makes it hard to leave! It is also in constant shade, and remains cool with a great breeze. 

The studio has a 2-poster, queen bed, with NEW (installed early Dec.’14) double pillow-top mattress, a solid mahogany day bed perfect for naps or a petite child for overnight, and another full-bath, with kitchenette. The sitting area has has an easy chair in addition to the day-bed/sofa, a desk, and another 42′ flat panel TV with its own library of DVD’s. The private terrace of the studio has two solid teak african meditation chairs, and a bar-height table for two for breakfast and sunset drinks. The view is extraordinary, and provides the setting for morning or evening relaxation at its best!

Like all condos at Grande Bay, you have all the luxuries expected in a high-end resort. The full-kitchen on the one-bedroom side is well equipped, everything you need is there for any meals you want to prepare. The efficiency kitchen on the Studio side has a fridge, microwave, and other kitchenware as well, including a kitchen sink!

The Grande Bay Resort is truly unique. It is the ONLY resort in St. John with a heated pool situated on an elevated sun deck with a commanding view about 30′ above the water, with its own waterfall to add to the unique sights and sound of the resort. At Grande Bay, and St. John in general, the island life is all about enjoying the color of the island, the world class beaches, the crystal clear water, and the location!

Other Amenities

  • Great location within the Grande Bay resort, in desirable upper building, accessed via elevator in the reception building, with stroll by elevated sun deck and pool. Condo is less than 100′ from the pool and sun deck on the first floor. View of beach and bay from front terrace highlights outdoor enjoyment and two 42″ LCD TV’s make into time perfect for kids and adults.

The studio unit at Grand Bay was very beautiful, clean and comfortable. The Grand Bay amenities and it's location right by Cruz Bay was perfect for all of our fun St. John adventures. Crandall of St. John Property Management provided a greeter to escort us to our rental, and arranged for us to be able to pre-order groceries and have them delivered and stocked for our arrival. They made everything super convenient for us! Thank you!

We had a great time in St John. The one bedroom condo in Grande Bay was perfect for us. The view every morning was hard to leave! Grande Bay makes it so easy to walk to everything in Cruz Bay like restaurants, shopping, even the beach! 7-102 condo. We can't wait to go back. Everyone was so friendly and there were no lines in the peak season of Feb!! St John was not as expensive as I thought either.

My husband and I had a fabulous time at Johns condo! The studio was perfect for two - very clean and comfortable.the property manager met us at the ferry and brought us to Grande Bay- he gave us great beach and restaurant advice! we spent the days beach hopping and the nights out at dinner and at the bars around Cruz bay! Perfect location if you're looking to explore St John! We cannot wait to come back!

Thank you so very much for letting us rent your Studio condo last week. We had an incredible vacation. The condo was perfect and the views breathe taking. The island of St. John’s is just beautiful as well as all of the beaches. Our favorite beach was Lameshur Bay with a close runner up at Francis. We loved visiting a different beach each day. Our time on the island went by way too fast.

Dorothy Scanlon    March 30, 2015    Pink Marlin Studio   

Just back from a week in Cruz Bay staying in the Pink Marlin and already trying to figure out when we can go back. Crandall on St John took great care of us - wonderful communication prior to our trip, arranged a vehicle parked in our parking spot that we didn't have to pickup or return (huge bonus), met us at the ferry dock and gave us a tour of the unit. My family of 4 (3 adults, 1 child) were very comfortable with both sides of the condo and the quick trip to the pool every day made my 10 year old very happy! This condo's location in Grande Bay and Grande Bay's location in Cruz Bay made for a very relaxing, easy vacation. Thank you for the great service - We will be back!

I had the pleasure of staying at the Pink Marlin and I loved it! Laurie has always been a great facilitator from my arrival to the dock on St.John to the amenities request and getting around St.John. I am looking forward to booking my next vacation with the Crandalls the next time I venture to St. John. Truly a vacation to enjoy!
