Grande Bay

Grande Bay condos, overlook the quaint town of Cruz Bay on St. John.  Near Wharfside Village and a variety of shops and restaurants, and a short 3-minute walk to the ferry dock and other shopping/dining areas, this resort offers up the best of Cruz Bay.  Grande Bay is the ideal place to own or rent, with breathtaking views and an unmatched luxury.  With fully-furnished condominium style guest suites, supreme privacy, salt water pool, access to watersports and convenience of all that Cruz Bay has to offer, Grande Bay has it all.  The spacious studio, one, two and three bedroom residences are located beachfront in Cruz Bay, combining local color and community with enough privacy to feel like your own secluded getaway.

Grande Bay Resort is a true opportunity to own a piece of paradise with the advantages of second home ownership being augmented by amenities and the personal service and detail of a luxury resort.


Sea Cliff

Sea Cliff St Thomas – a waterfront complex that offers the use of three pools and a tennis court, and it allows owners to have dogs.  It’s got the full monty.  Located directly on the water in Bolongo Bay, each one of the 75 units enjoys a waterfront living.  There are 43 one-bedroom, 25 two-bedroom and seven three-bedroom units.

Sea Cliff Villas is the skirt surrounding Regatta Point, another condominium complex which shares a security gate with Sea Cliff.  And neighboring these two complexes is Watergate East, also on the water, but not behind a security gate.  The three complexes have a reciprocal relationship which means residents can use each other’s pools, as well as the Regatta Point tennis court.

Another advantage of living here is being able to walk to one of three beachfront restaurants.  The Bolongo Bay Beach Resort is home to Iggies Beach Bar and Grill for a burger, fries and a beer.  Or for more upscale dining there’s The Lobster Grille at Bolongo Bay.  Additionally, Mim’s Seaside Bistro is situated on Bolongo Bay and specializes in seafood.

Sea Cliff Villas were built in the 1980s, according to the association’s office.  Their lack of curbside appeal – the buildings are boxy and bulky – is softened somewhat by the fact that they literally are oceanfront.  There’s a trail that leads from Sea Cliff to the Bolongo Bay Beach Resort’s beach, and keep in mind, all beaches in the VI are public, regardless of whether a resort or a residence is alongside.  The beach directly in front of the complex is rocky – not too bad for strolling but hardly a place to lounge and swim.


Fairway Village

Fairway Village condominiums occupy a unique location in that they are within the gates of Mahogany Run, but they are not actually part of the Mahogany Run condominium complex.  Fairway Village is a separate entity entirely.  Nevertheless, the complex enjoys the benefits of a security gate and security guards, and residents are walking distance from The Grille, a delightful bistro located in the clubhouse at Mahogany Run, a famous golf course, should Fairway Village residents also be duffers.

Fairway Village is a modest version of the Mahogany Run condominiums in that they are mostly studios, and their views are almost exclusively of the golf course, though some boast distant ocean views.  The complex consists of 31 units – only a few are one bedroom. Depending on which level the condo is on, you could scale a few short flights to reach home.  Fairway Village boasts a beautifully and newly refinished pool exclusively for the use of its residents.

Like Mahogany Run, Fairway Village is located on the cool north side of the island, facing the Atlantic, and is a stone’s throw from world famous Magens Bay Beach.  In addition to restaurants nearby, Fairway Village is close to the center of the island, Tutu, where conveniences abound.


Sirenusa

Sirenusa is an Italian-inspired, luxuriously appointed villa resort community nestled high in the hills over Cruz Bay, St. John.  Surrounded by panoramic views of the Caribbean, this 22-villa compound offers vacationers accommodations ranging from two to six bedrooms, with a capacity for up to 12 guests. Each residence enjoys superior finishes such as tongue-and-groove ceilings, expansive windows, stone flooring and hardwood inlays.  Some villas feature a private pool. Fully outfitted  with top-of the-line appliances, Sirenusa (pronounced “seer-a-NU-sa”) feels like your home away from home.  The villas are all stocked with essential cooking and personal grooming necessities.  If you would like your kitchen fully provisioned, or a private chef commissioned, the staff at Sirenusa will cater to your needs.

Recreational and fitness opportunities, as well as a meeting room for business executives, are found just steps away from your private villa in the Sirenusa Clubhouse.  There, you can enjoy state-of-the-art exercise equipment, play a game of pool, or take a swim in the pool whose large, gracious patio is a perfect setting for a romantic sunset dinner or a small wedding reception. Sirenusa is dedicated to making your vacation or celebration a cherished memory.


Elysian Beach Resort

There is a vitality about the Elysian that the three other condominium complexes which share the Cowpet Bay waterfront don’t quite have.  The Elysian Beach Resort has been a resort destination – a hotel service used to operate for owners who chose to rent – so there’s a spa, a hair salon (CHECK!), a large ocean-side pool, a tennis court, a mini  convenience store, as well as two restaurants on the property.  It’s got it all, not to mention, proximity to Red Hook, where services abound.

The residences at the Elysian, also known as Cowpet Beach Resort, are designed with a rental option in mind.  Each bedroom has a porch facing the ocean, and a door to the outside.  The common living area can be used as a studio, and the door accessing the bedroom can be locked to enable the owner to rent the bedroom, which includes a full bath, and a station for a mini fridge.   Most units have a bedroom flanking both sides of the common living area, essentially providing for two rentals, while the owner enjoys a studio with a full kitchen, full bath and a laundry room.  Some Elysian units have a loft bedroom/bathroom, with a large balcony.  If being able to host guests or earn rental income is important, you may still enjoy plenty of living area, even if you’ve sectioned off a bedroom or two for private use.

Architecturally, the Elysian is perhaps the most attractive of the Cowpet area condominiums.  Some units require you to climb a couple flights of stairs from the parking lot.  Views from the Elysian can be somewhat removed from the ocean.  Many units overlook the parking lot, or the buildings housing the resort’s amenities.  But palm trees abound, a pool adds some cache to the vista, and regardless of what comes first, the sandy beach and blue ocean are where your gaze lands, and they provide a welcome sight as you sip morning coffee or evening drinks from your porch.


Secret Harbor


The Pinnacle

The Pinnacle is one of the newer condominium complexes on St. Thomas, age approximately 20 years.  While that may sound dated, the five buildings spread over two tiers are sleek and attractive, and the 15 units in the complex have a modern and spacious feel.  The master bat­hrooms in the units are known for a his & hers entrance with individual toilets and vanities, and a shared shower in between.

The square footage of the condominiums ranges from just over 1,800 feet for a 2-bedroom to more than 2,200 feet for a 3-bedroom unit.  There is one 4-bedroom unit.  Some units are two story townhomes.
What distinguishes the Pinnacle is its situation, high over the Charlotte Amalie harbor, which means you enjoy dazzling views, day and night.  The lights from the harbor are nothing short of romantic.  That, along with the comings and goings of the cruise ships make your morning coffee and evening drinks a very special pleasure from your Pinnacle deck.
Gated, with lovely landscaping, a large pool and a tennis court, the Pinnacle is an exclusive choice for condo buyers.

Yacht Haven Grande

Yacht Haven Grande St. Thomas consists of twelve luxurious residences overlooking a world class mega-yacht marina and majestic harbor.  The Residences at Yacht Haven Grande St. Thomas offer an extraordinary opportunity to live in one of the most special destinations in the Caribbean.  This playground of island beauty and urban style offers fabulous shopping, gourmet & casual restaurants, elegant office spaces, world class amenities and exclusive privileges for just twelve residents – to shop, eat, work or spend the day on your yacht, within footsteps of your residence.

The Residences are located near the Yacht Haven Grande Yacht Club, which is the center of Yacht Haven Grande St. Thomas.  The Club offers incomparable 360 degree views of the largest natural harbor in the Caribbean, with spectacular views of Water Island, Hassel Island and the incredible mega-yachts at our state-of-the-art marina. Residents will have access to Yacht Haven Grande’s fitness center and a magnificently landscaped recreation area equipped with swimming pool, tennis courts and a putting green.

Mahogany Run

When you’re talking condominium complexes on St. Thomas, you can’t help but talk about time-tested Mahogany Run.  Built around a 100-acre golf course by the same name, Mahogany Run Condos consists of 241 units bordering the Atlantic, many with spectacular views extending to the British Virgin Islands.

There are two entrances to the complex – both gated with security guards.  The main entrance leads to the golf course and clubhouse, with a popular restaurant, as well as to dozens of luxury homes, many of them waterfront.  The condominiums in the main section of Mahogany Run offer views ranging from breathtaking ocean panoramas to pastoral, golf course scenes.  And there are two pools to choose from. The other entrance to Mahogany Run is down the road from the main gate and is called “Tennis Village.”  Why Tennis Village?  No one seems to know because you won’t find any tennis courts there, or on the main property.  What you will find, however, are three-bedroom condominiums, not available in the central complex.  Of the 241 units at Mahogany Run, most are two-bedrooms, and several are one bedroom and studio apartments, but only about a dozen units are three-bedrooms, and all of those are in Tennis Village, which shares its entrance with the Old Stone Farmhouse – one of the finest restaurants on the island.

One of the aspects of Mahogany Run that recommends it to condo buyers is layout.  The boxy blueprint that many condos adopted is not evident here.  Mahogany Run apartments tend to feel more like small homes, with layouts that speak to imagination and good planning – plenty of windows out onto the views rivaled only by plenty of closet and storage space.

Living in Mahogany Run has many advantages, including proximity to a world famous beach, to restaurants, as well as to Tutu, a central location for shopping and the home to the island’s only movie theater.
