Earlier this week, we launched our latest raffle which will benefit the Animal Care Center here on St. John. One hundred percent of the proceeds (after PayPal takes its fee) will be donated to the Animal Care Center, an amazing nonprofit organization that continues to support the island’s dogs and cats throughout this pandemic. The winner of this raffle will win a five-night stay at Aquamare at Grande Bay. It’s a pretty amazing spot…
Aquamare is a beautifully appointed two-bedroom suite with some of the best unobstructed views of Cruz Bay harbor, as well as convenient access to Grande Bay Resort’s fine amenities, including outdoor pool and spa, fitness center, and morning coffee.
Aquamare offers spectacular views of St. John’s cays from the suite’s private balcony as well as upscale amenities including a Keurig beverage maker, Kohler shower tower and washroom accessories, and flat screen TVs in all rooms. You won’t find finer furnishings or décor than offered at Aquamare, including beautiful artwork, travertine flooring throughout, specialty bathroom features, and luxurious bedding. The winner of this prize will enjoy every second of their vacation in St. John while staying in this indulgent condo.
Aquamare can accommodate up to six guests. The master bedroom houses a luxurious king size bed and full bath. The second bedroom contains another king size bed and access to an additional full bath. In the living area, there is a comfortable queen sized sleeper sofa.
Grande Bay Resort is situated hillside overlooking Cruz Bay on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Set near Wharfside Village and a leisurely three minute stroll from the ferry dock, this St. John resort overlooks the emerald and blue waters of Cruz Bay with St. Thomas to the west. For added convenience, this unit comes with a reserved parking space if you choose to rent a vehicle for your stay. Although a rental vehicle is not necessary due to Aquamare’s in-town location.
Grande Bay Resort offers a large pool deck overlooking the ocean along with swimming pool and hot tub. The resort also boasts a spacious exercise room with new equipment that offers ocean views. Due to its location right in Cruz Bay, you can easily walk to shops, restaurants, bars and even some beaches at your leisure.
The winner of this raffle will also receive $1,000 courtesy of 340 Real Estate Co. Tickets are just $20.
