This was one of my best vacations ever! The property is clean and private. The beach is only steps away from the bungalow and we snorkeled everyday. Every day was like living in paradise. We will definitely vacation here again!

my husband and i rented out this property in fredericksted recently and when you walk in the unit, the view just takes your breath away! the sliding glass doors open to a nice covered patio and beyond that is the pool, and steps away is the ocean. you can't beat the location of this unit if you like the laid back feel of the west end of st. croix. this was our 6th trip to st. croix and we have always stayed on the west end, however the location of this unit was the best for us. you are located close by to rhythm's at rainbow beach (close enough to walk) where there is a nice beach bar/restaurant and activities like jet skis and beach chairs and umbrellas for rent. the property is more spacious than i expected, plenty of room so you don't feel cooped up, the bathroom is huge with double sinks. yes, there are things that could be updated, but if you like a self catering type of vacation and don't want to be in the car constantly, this is the place for you! with the beach in your backyard there is no reason to have to go anywhere, it's like your own private beach. there is good snorkeling right outside your door!! there weren't any tennants in the unit next to us, so we had the pool all to ourselves everyday. steve takes care of the property, so any questions or concerns you have, you contact him and he is there to help. the owner teri was very nice to deal with when booking the place and lives in the area also. there isn't any cable or satellite tv, just a tv to watch dvds, but we didn't even turn it on. the wifi worked most of the time on my laptop; you just had to find the spot where the signal was the strongest, which is normal on islands, not a big deal for us. my husband and i will definitely rent this unit again on our return trip to st. croix!!

This place was way beyond our expectations. We searched long and hard for a place that would allow us to walk out onto the beach, first thing in the morning. The ocean was literally just steps from the backdoor and there was a pool, which was a great bonus.This property was very well maintained and had the most incredible views! The beaches were so remote and covered in beautiful brain coral. If you are looking for a private and romantic get away, we highly recommend it! There were only 2 days where a cruise ship dropped a bunch of people off. But it wasn't bad because it is SO remote, it didn't seem too crowded. We walked everywhere we needed to go. Coconuts was our go-to for drinks. Everyone was so friendly, we felt like regulars by the end of our trip. Otherwise, Turtle's Deli was our other favorite spot. There was a little rain everyday, but its a great excuse to get out of the sun for a little bit and take a nap.

gorgeous sandy beach, great location, very comfortable chalet/apartment
gorgeous sandy beach, great location, very comfortable chalet/apartment
I wanted to get-away to write up an important proposal for work and had the idea to just take off for a few days somewhere by nature to get inspired. This rental turned out to be ideal for me. The chalet apartment was neat and clean, the kitchen well-stocked. A snorkel and mask, beach chair and umbrella, an igloo for beverages, even little packets of forks and knives and napkins were provided and made it so convenient to hang out at the beach to write. During the time I was there only a couple of fishermen showed up otherwise it was essentially empty. The villa across the courtyard has it's own entrance and I really did not see anyone else. I had my own little tropical paradise! It was just great to get up in the morning and walk just a few short steps to the beach and be set for the day to writing. When I needed a break for inspiration I walked literally one step into the spectacular water for a really nice swim, or snorkel to see the fish. It was so convenient to just pack up a sandwich, or take a 5 minute walk to a casual beach restaurant right on the ocean for a nice meal. I came away feeling relaxed, refreshed and looking forward to my next stay...for pure fun!

my companion and I spent a week at the house and had a wonderful time. It's isolated but close enough to run to town with no problem. Frederiksted is the most laid back part of the island and that's just what we were looking for. (There's a great beach party just down the road on Sunday evenings!)There are people in the other two rentals, but one apt is not home all day and the other was out of town until the last night. It got a little loud and crowded then, but all great guys. We had no water when we arrived late at night, but Steve took care of it as soon as he could and we had no more problems.He had lots of good recommendations for things to do too. The only improvements I would mention are an ice chest available for guests and better beach chairs. Minor details; we would definitely return. My friend thought we had the best place on the island! He even slept in the hammock one night. Thanks to Teri and Steve for a great time!

I found Shangrala
I found Shangrala
I read about it in books it is not a myth i have found Shangrala. This property is what you see in movies postcards. Those photos of place are true you will be living in a postcard. I felt like i was in my own personal resort. So this is how the other half lives. The town is in walking distance beachside cafe 2 blocks away and suprise food is good . A little down the way you have to try jet skiing in the water. Also recommend swimming at sunset hence the term shangrala. Rain forest 1mile away its all here. The condo was nice clean has everything you need, I will surely come back for the price you pay is a far as i know a very fair price. The owners were friendly and helpful was very easy to set up. So if your coming to usvi forget St Thomas as i was pricing around and this type of compound was listing at 3.000 aweek .So come down for the charm of St. Croix and all the stuff to do here but i will tell you you might not want to leave. Bottom line this was a perfect vaction only problem for me was i had to leave ,Will be back very soon . Thank you St. Croix for wonderful memories. Mike Dominguez

Beautiful location, but typical island issues
Beautiful location, but typical island issues
We stayed at Prosperity 3C (the actual address) for little over a week. The location and beach access were the best part of the stay. We've used VRBO several times in the past 5 years, and I'd have to honestly rate this one as the least desireable overall of the ones we've used. Not that there was any misrepresentation in the condo description, but the condition was a bit run down, and quite dirty. I cleaned the bathroom floor, and found a moldy coffee filter with grinds in the barely capable coffee maker. For the price we paid, I think these things should have been taken care of. We could not get in contact with the owner, but were able to reach a very attentive gentleman whose number had been provided to us. When I could not find the remote for the A/C (which we needed at night), he responded and provided us with extra fans (another tenant had apparently taken the remote). If it wasn't for the excellent location, my wife and I would have rated this property at two stars.

Private Beach Getaway
Private Beach Getaway
My husband and I stayed at this special little breach front property the week after Thanksgiving 2010. The cove-like beach, about 75-80 yards long, is just as beautiful and pristine as described-white sand sprinkled with bits of coral and purple and pink whelk shells-quite a few of which had been appropriated by hermit crabs before I picked them up. The water is at least seven shades of blue with the cruise ship pier in the distance. Because the beach faces nearly due west, it made for spectacular sunset viewing from the gazebo in the walled in garden area, where we practically lived when we were not actually on the beach. On only one day did anyone else even venture into the cove, and they were fishermen casting nets for bait who were interesting to watch. Although the pool next door was available and entirely vacant all day, we never used it because the beach was so much more enticing to us. Incidentally, there were beach chairs and beach towels supplied with the house. The house itself has a tropical feel with wrap-around views of the sea, and is completely functional, if perhaps, a bit over furnished. There is a very steep staircase (almost ladder-like, but very solid) to the upper bedroom and a very commodious bathroom. Michael, the rental agent who lives next door in the bigger house, was like having one's own concierge. He simply could not have been more accommodating and did everything possible to make our visit more enjoyable, recommending sites to see and places to dine. Because we had read that public transportation was ubiquitous, we had elected not to rent a car for this vacation. Although we corrected that omission once we were there, Michael took us to a supermarket on our arrival and even supplied us with his own toaster when he realized our little kitchen did not have one. His enthusiasm for St.Croix is infectious and he seemed to know everything about the island and just about everyone on it. I would heartedly recommend this property and Michael to friends.
