Much of Bliss (inside and out), and the whole, private complex of Cruz Views (all 10 units) is brand new, thanks to our extensive renovation in 2018.
I took advantage of our 'renovation down time' to add a new, much larger picture window to capture more expansive sea and sunset views from our living area. I also made our deck area larger and added more privacy fencing, along with more orchids, bougainvillea and jasmine.
You'll enjoy new bed and bath linens, new living area furniture, new cabinets and backsplash, new art, new TVs, new games, and new DVDs.
What remains the same is the mesmerizing sea and sunset views from both inside and out, quiet privacy, and close proximity to all the amazing National Park Beaches on the North Shore and Cruz Bay with its multitude of great restaurants and charming shops.
Bliss also, of course, has full central air-conditioning.
Bliss is the only Cruz Views unit available direct through owner! If you look at the picture of the sand-colored building, that whole building is Bliss (like a stand-alone, private villa of your own at condo prices--the best of both worlds!!)
The location can NOT be beat! Close to everything--walkable down to town with its fabulous restaurants and charming shops, 5 minutes from National Park Beaches--yet up in the hills high enough to be a peaceful retreat.
Bliss's upstairs bedroom provides you with the option of either 2 Twin Beds or 1 extremely comfortable King Bed.
The amazing Caribbean views--including Pillsbury Sound with a myriad of cays and small islands nestled within it, St. Thomas with it's nightly 'twinkly light' display, and daytime views of sailboats skimming along the surface, even regattas--are also yours within the unit itself. Half the time when I watch tv in the living area, I'm instead looking outside the windows at the view! Views from the upstairs bedroom are incredible.
Bliss also includes your own private parking spot right above the unit and--set among a lovely tropical garden frequently scented with jasmine--is a beautiful saline-filtered pool (gentle on your skin) shared with the guests from the other 9 units but often yours alone!
Not only is there a gas grill, tables, chairs, and chaise lounges on the pool deck but also a gazebo--offering great Caribbean views as well--where guests frequently gather at the end of the day to toast the sunset together and share their beach/snorkeling/hiking/sailing adventures of the day.
You also have your own little private tropical garden enclosed within Bliss's private deck area, where you'll find your beach chairs and coolers as well.
Bliss: offering you all the comforts of home along with the unique tropical experience of enjoying the Caribbean of the past--since St. John is 2/3 National Park, most of its pristine beaches and tropical forest covered hills have thankfully been preserved in their original state, unmarred and unscarred by the rampant development characterizing most other Caribbean islands today.
Welcome to my dream--my home in Paradise!
