East End apartment description

Our seaview retreat is a fully furnished 1 bedroom/1 bath extension to our house in a peaceful residential neighborhood. It has a private entrance, paved parking, pocket meditation garden, pool access, and refreshing tropical breezes with a wrap-around sea view. A beautiful 5-minute walk takes you to a pristine beach that you’re most likely to have all to yourself. There are lounge chairs in the shade, and even a small snorkeling reef right off the beach. When you return, an outdoor shower lets you wash away the sand while still gazing at the sea.The retreat has been completely remodeled and refurbished in a crisp, breezy tropical motif. It sleeps 1 to 4, featuring a comfy queen size bed in the bedroom and a full-size futon in the living room. The kitchen has all you need to prepare meals and tropical drinks that you can enjoy indoors or al fresco looking out to sea. The retreat promises you a peaceful, nurturing environment just moments away from all the island attractions.

                                    My boyfriend and I stayed here for nine amazing nights! We absolutely loved the spot for the following reasons (including but not limited to!) -Very private - the owners are upstairs but there is a private entrance and you are in your own world at the apt (your own driveway and walk way included). - Owners are extremely helpful and sweet. Any issues we had were dealt with immediately and with a smile :-) - Great location: you do need a car to see ALL of st croix but they are only a short walk to a cute little quiet beach that, every time we went, we were virtually the only people on. - AMAZING views - just stand on the porch or even in the living room and stare out to the ocean. - All the amenities you need - full kitchen, good internet, tv for those quiet evenings (of which we had approximately one), cool and comfortable - That AMAZING trade wind breeze that is constantly coming through the windows. MORE MORE MORE - definitely recommend, definitely will stay there again on our next trip!

                                    My wife and I had a great time and a great stay at this rental. Martha and Peter were gracious host and the apartment has everything you need. We had lots of privacy and watch the sun come up and set from the porch. It is located on the east end in the best neighborhood on the island. It is a quick walk down to a great beach that is mostly deserted. It is in driving distance to so many things to do on the island and there is a little beach bar and restaurant a short walk from this apartment. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone wanting to visit the island and for a great price!!

                                    I can't speak highly enough about my experience at this lovely apartment on the East End of St. Croix. Martha and Peter were lovely hosts, providing privacy or society, whatever I chose. The apartment is spacious and nicely appointed with a comfortable bed, and furnishings that along with lovely ocean breezes made my time there effortless. The views are terrific, the proximity to the beach perfect. And there's a pool, to boot. Martha was always able to provide all the information I needed and introduced me to aspects of the island I might not have discovered on my own. Quiet and beautiful. A lovely place hosted by lovely people. I look forward to my return.

                                    Owner response: Paul, it was wonderful having you here. I hope you'll be able to return -- and next time we'll take you out to catch the lobsters ourselves!

                                    This apartment was just as described in the write up. It is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood so you will need a car. Owners were friendly and helpful. Since we had a car we were able to travel freely around the island and explore the many beaches.

                                    My boyfriend and I stayed at this property for a month and it was very hard to leave. We found it so hard to leave, that we are actually currently living on St Croix! This property had everything that we wanted and more. 1) Great Location - we walked to the neighborhood beach everyday down the street to snorkel and walk on the beach. There is also a trail connecting this beach to the next beach over - several great snorkeling spots and the beach was clean and not crowded. 2) Peace and Quite - the neighborhood is quiet, which is what we look for while we are on vacation. You can sit on the porch and relax and enjoy the sea view, breezes and look at a nearby historic sugar mill, windmill base. 3) Property had everything we needed - the kitchen is well stocked and has everything you will need to cook a meal if you prefer not to go out. There is no AC, which we thought would be tough to live without, but we quickly got used to having the windows open and enjoyed the breezes and fresh air. Great selection of TV channels. Use of the owners swimming pool. Owners have a really sweet dog that we loved on everyday. 4) Great location - several great restaurants within a 5-10 minute drive. Christiansted is about 15 minutes away and worth walking around. We dove with SCUBA while staying at this property, which is a great dive shop. 5) Knowledgeable, caring and friendly owners - The owners are just fabulous and we really appreciated their hospitality. Peter and Martha gauge your various interests and needs and react accordingly. Peter is an experienced Captain, so I highly recommend booking a day cruise on their sailboat the Lightheart, during your stay. We really enjoyed this memorable visit and now have 2 new great friends! Thanks Peter and Martha!

                                    As one of the very first visitors, the only thing more beautiful than the lodging, views and beaches are the two owners! As a general island neophyte and non-seaside dweller, not only were the accomodations amazing, but the knowledge, expertise and guidance provided to make best use of our time was invaluable. The views, breezes, and expansive beaches coupled with wonderful lodging made me wonder why I didn’t purchase a one-way ticket

                                    Owner response: Thanks so much! We couldn't have had better first guests, and we're so happy you enjoyed your stay. We'd love to welcome you and your family back any time.

                                  About the owner: Martha and Peter are delighted to welcome you to their beautiful island retreat. Peter is originally from Miami, Florida, and Martha from Austin, Texas. They relocated to St. Croix after a year of cruising the Caribbean aboard their 40-foot sailboat Lightheart. At every island they asked each other: “Could you imagine us living here?” Only on St. Croix did the answer come back yes. Absolutely, enthusiastically yes! Peter had a stellar 26-year career as an attorney, practicing primarily in Sarasota, Florida. His greater love, however, was his sailboat racing career which took him all over the world gathering championships and training younger sailors. Peter has also been a commercial and test pilot, lifeguard on Miami Beach, firefighter, school teacher and personal life coach. He currently is thrilled to be taking charter clients for day trips and extended cruising trips on Lightheart, as well as teaching sailing through his association with the American Sailing Association. Martha practiced law in Austin for a few years, but the bulk of her career has been as a facilitator of personal growth and professional development experiences for both individuals and business clients. She has done much of her work in experiential “adventure learning” environments from sailboats to mountain tops; and she also loves delighting her business clients with extraordinarily effective business meetings delivered in the context of an island vacation. Martha offers personal life coaching and executive coaching island retreats, and also coaches via telephone and internet from her breezy tropical perch on a hill overlooking the Caribbean.

                                  Why the Owner Chose East End:
                                  We searched the entire island, but knew the instant we saw this property that it had what we wanted. The views and easy access to the sea were paramount, but the bones of a great home were present too. We developed - and continue to develop the property to reflect our values of beauty, privacy, peace, comfort, convenience, and harmony with nature. If that’s what you’d like as your base from which to explore all that St. Croix has to offer, we think you've just found your place too.
