We stayed at Seashore Allure for 8 nights and we were so thrilled with our choice. We were considering Grande Bay, but fortunately we found Seashore Allure and we know we made the right decision to stay here. The condo was just beautiful. Each bedroom had its own character and all of them were stellar. Frankly, I couldn't decide which room to take and which to give to each of the kids - I liked them all.
It was an absolute treat to wake up each morning and see the gorgeous view of the water from our bedroom. It was also such a luxury to hear the waves at night -- we would leave the window open and be lulled to sleep by the waves. We really felt like we were away on vacation.
The patio was awesome - it was large, with a great eating area, and it looked over the pool and bay. We ate all our meals out there. Actually, the condo had two balconies and I enjoyed reading at night with the kids on the upper balcony. The kitchen was beautiful and large, and they really did think of everything. I don't think I have ever been to a better stocked condo. The living area was also very comfortable. The bathrooms were beautiful with gorgeous rock, stone and shell work - really high end.
The location of this condo was perfect for us -- so close to Cruz Bay but away from all of the noise, and, as mentioned, it was right on the water. We never had a problem parking in Cruz Bay, and, for those inclined, it was a short walk to town. The markets are also a short drive/walk from this condo.
The kids loved the pool which overlooked the bay. We all enjoyed the hot tub. The hot tub roof deck afforded wonderful views - one of St Thomas lit up at night and also an amazing view of the stars over the bay. They provided beach chairs, coolers and pool toys which we used and enjoyed.
Now, the last thing I want to mention is the wonderful people working at Sea Shore Allure. They made our stay so comfortable and were so lovely to all of us. Karin gave us great advice about St. John geared specifically to us including activities for the kids and restaurants we'd enjoy. We dealt with her with our reservation and travel plans and she could not have been more helpful or terrific. Kristin got us to the ferry on such short notice and was so sweet and accommodating about it. (Thanks!) Delbert and Edward were extremely friendly and helpful with advice, and Delbert fixed a tv immediately that wasn't working properly (even though we didn't ask him to). They were all terrific. The service exceeded all of our expectations as did the condo. We hated to leave and look forward to returning. I can't believe I'm telling anyone about this place because I should just keep it a secret!!
