Cruz Bay, St. John »
Tropical Breeze Villa was virtually undamaged by hurricanes Irma and Maria, and is the largest unit at Battery Hill--an elegantly cozy 9-unit condominium complex on the crest of a hill overlooking Grande Bay and quaint Cruz Bay village. This comfortable unit boasts a spacious living area, a fully equipped kitchen, modern island decor, a queen sized master bedroom and a pair of twin beds in the large loft bedroom. Visually, the exposed beams and rustic cedar plank cathedral ceiling invoke images of a Vermont barn. Five Hunter ceiling fans spaced throughout the unit supplement the nearly constant natural breezes. For added comfort, there are three air conditioners spaced throughout the unit.
With the completion of a second bathroom in early 2010, Tropical Breeze stands out as one of only three 2 bedroom/2 bath rental units at Battery Hill. In addition, the Tropical Breeze kitchen was extensively remodeled in 2010. Improvements include new mahogany cabinets, granite counters and stainless steel appliances.
Tropical Breeze is on the top (3rd) floor of the outermost building; as a result, it offers incredible unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea and inland St. John. On clear days, St. Croix--nearly 40 miles distant--may be seen on the southern horizon.
Battery Hill’s pool deck is a great spot to enjoy cocktails while grilling a burger or some fresh local fish on the nearby Weber grill. After a refreshing dip in the pool, you’ll find the Tropical Breeze balcony deck an irresistible spot for alfresco dining, capturing a sunset, watching the moon rise, or gazing at the stars. The views are magical.
As a guest at Battery Hill, you will enjoy luxurious 'home away from home' accommodations and conveniences such as cable TV and WiFi service. Our on-island manager will assure that your arrival/check-in goes smoothly and is always available for your special needs.
Locating a parking spot in downtown Cruz Bay can present the ultimate challenge. Our near-town location means that when you feel it’s time to grab a beer or tropical drink at one of the popular pubs, or enjoy a sumptuous meal at one of Cruz Bay’s many world-class restaurants, or, perhaps, just do a bit of shopping, it will all be within easy walking distance. At Battery Hill, renting a vehicle is an option, not a necessity. If you do choose to rent a vehicle, rest assured that Battery Hill, unlike some other properties, offers ample off-street parking.
And, as you evaluate the various accommodations available to you, keep in mind that, as described earlier, we "overlook" Grande Bay. We are literally next door neighbors, but situated higher on the hillside. The Tropical Breeze deck, being about 4 stories above the Grande Bay roof line, offers unobstructed views.
The nearest beach, at Frank Bay, can be reached in five minutes by foot. Taxi service to the National Park’s spectacular north shore beaches is both readily available and inexpensive.
All you need to do is kick back and enjoy!!
A word of caution: if you see Tropical Breeze being offered for rent on Craig's List at rates way below those published here, it's a scam. Don't fall for it; we do not advertise there.
Please note: The stairs in the unit may not be suitable for children under six.
