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. There were many taxis close by to take visitors to the nearby beaches. The apartment was the perfect size for a couple. We had one bedroom and 1 1/2... More

We've been coming to the Island for 22 years and this was our first time at GB. We rented from an owner & it couldn't have been easier! We were very lucky to get a good price, a great view & all the little extras - coolers, chairs, parking space, snorkel gear, etc. It was so convenient to be able... More

love love loved it! Great location, an easy walk to some bars and food. Right off the Ferry Dock. Easy cab ride to Trunk Bay and other awesome places! Would go back in a heartbeat. We were nervous because it was 'across the road' from the beach but it turned out to not be an issue. the road is tiny!

This was our fourth stay at Grande Bay and the resort itself is 5*. We rented through VRBO and our unit was just ok, but we got a good rate. We had a 1 BR unit in the lower building B202. Upon arrival the unit had a funky mildew smell that made all our clothes smell. The villa also had... More

Dear JesseS: I "highly recommend" that you come back! Thank you so much for the wonderful and complimentary review. I am indeed privileged to work with such a talented group of people! Location is something you have but caring and helpfulness has to come from within and to borrow a commercial phrase "These guys are good"!! Kind regards, Paul More
