We booked Seaside, VRBO #386798, as our first Grande Bay experience. After 30+ visits to St. John over 20 years we have enjoyed staying in every corner of our favorite island in every accommodation imaginable, from camping to celebrity villas. Being able to stay right on Cruz Bay Beach with a reserved parking spot is great. Even better is staying... More

We keep coming back to St John. We have traveled the world and seen the best beaches of Australia, New Zealand, Bora-Bora and many other places, but in all honesty, St John is as good as it gets. The beaches are next to none - probably because so much of the island is preserved as National Parks and not covered... More

St John can be a difficult place to get to from Chicago but Grande Bay was just a perfect home once there. We rented a condo managed by Crandall Properties at Grande Bay. I just can't say enough about Crandall. A smiling face met us at the barge dock and whisked us to our condo by the sea. Beautiful views... More

New towels are provided daily. Every room including studios have a washer and a dryer and I enjoyed my balcony over looking the water with... More

This was just our 3rd vacation on St John but I haven't seen a property that compares to Grande Bay if you want to be close to "town", have a great view and stay at a high quality property. It was perfect for us to be able to walk a block into Cruz Bay for whatever we needed in the... More

We would definitely stay here again. The staff was fabulous. Our room was beautiful. The location is perfect for walking to dinner. It looks like all the rooms have a view. The resort has coolers and beach chairs for your use.

My new husband and I spent our honeymoon at Grande Bay Oct 13-21 in one of the studio suites. This was my husband and I's first time to St. Johns and to say we were impressed with Grande Bay does not seem adequate! The staff was so incredibly friendly and happy to help! I personally thought Grande Bay has the... More

My wife and I celebrated our 27th Anniversay in early September. I surprised her with a trip to our favorite island, the same island that we spent our honeymoon at. We first stayed at the Grande Bay in January 2013 and had the best vacation of our lives. It was a no brainer when deciding where we would stay this... More
