Christiansted apartment description

This 17th century property is located in the heart of downtown Christiansted. The property comprises of two buildings. A main commercial/residential structure that faces King St and a smaller building both characteristic of the Danish West Indian style. This one bedroom apartment is the downstairs of the smaller building and nestled in the back courtyard. It features a full kitchen, bathroom and living room/dining area. Both adorable and affordable this is a great vacation rental option for singles and couples who want to immerse themselves in small-island town life.

We are one block away from the best bakery in town where locals line up every morning to get Crucian style 'titi bread' 'butter bread', 'bush tea' and other breakfast favorites. In a two to three block radius are some of the best local food spots serving up dishes like roti, stewed oxtail, curry goat, salt fish and ducanna, kallaloo and other Crucian/Caribbean delicacies. We are also five minutes away from fine dining restaurants, historic churches and cemeteries, exquisite handmade jewelry shops, museums, nightlife, cool bars and restaurants on the boardwalk, great duty-free shopping, the seaplane (in case you want to hop over to/or are hopping over from St. Thomas) and even the beach! On the boardwalk you can organize sailing, jet skiing, fishing, and head over to Buck Island or the Cay for swimming and snorkeling. And because of the great town location you are just a taxi ride away from everything else that St. Croix has to offer. If you choose to rent a car there is agency in walking distance.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: My husband is a musician and I am a visual artist. Although my family is originally from Barbados & Trinidad & Tobago I grew up in the Virgin Islands (both St. Thomas & St. Croix). I left to study at Columbia University in NY and then later at the Institute Superior de Arte in Havana, Cuba where I met my future husband who at the time was studying to be an opera singer. We met my third day in Havana and have been inseparable ever since. I currently teach at the University of the Virgin Islands, work as a professional artist and manage our real estate investments. My husband works in developing our new business (a Latin Dance Studio & Nightclub slated to open Sept. 2013) and has his own salsa band and Latin jazz trio. Since leaving Cuba in 2005, we have traveled many places in the world, but both agree that St. Croix is something special. That's why we have chosen to build our lives and raise a family here.

                      Why the Owner Chose Christiansted:
                      We were attracted to this property because we were looking for our own space to teach our salsa classes. We saw it on a Friday afternoon and had an offer in on Monday morning. We love the location and the historical architectural details. We did 80% of the work ourselves, but in true Caribbean form many friends have helped us along the way. This has been a project of a lifetime and a dream come true for both of us. But most of all we are happy to bring more joy and beauty into our community and share it with locals and visitors alike.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      There are many beautiful hotels, villas and luxury homes on St. Croix that sell a particular vision of an island paradise. What this property offers is authentic urban island living. You will get a chance to immerse yourself in our beautiful Crucian culture without compromising comfort or style. If you want to stretch your vacation dollars to be able to experience the culture and all St. Croix has to offer, this is the rental for you.
