Cruz Bay condo description

Everything you need for a fabulous St. John vacation without the high price tag! One of the best values on island.

We've just taken over the short-term rental management of our condo and we're doing our best to ensure you love your time here as much as we did when Kachi Ra was our home.

Air conditioned bedroom is the perfect place to get a good night's sleep at the end of your days exploring this beautiful island. Cozy, casual with rich mahogany surroundings in a quiet, safe, residential neighborhood full of mature growth trees, new furniture, flat screen tv, wireless internet and digital cable.

Kachi Ra (Kachee'-rah) is just 20 steps away from a great pool and gas grill on an expansive sun deck with lounges and views of Little St. James and Pillsbury Sound.

Located only one mile from the ferry dock, Kachi Ra is within walking distance of town and a very short ride by car.

This is a very quiet, serene place with all new furnishings. Drop us an e-mail or give us a call!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: Ted purchased this condo in 1999, fresh out of college. I met him in 2005, and it was here at this condo that we fell in love and started a family. We moved out of the condo in 2010 to better accommodate our growing family, and we've rented it long-term ever since. We've now made the move to short-term, and we hope island visitors enjoy their time at Kachi Ra as much as we did.

                      Why the Owner Chose Cruz Bay:
                      The condo is located in a quiet neighborhood, very convenient to Cruz Bay and North Shore beaches. The condominium complex is home to a mix of long-term residents, condo owners, and short-term rentals. It's a peaceful place where neighbors look out for one another. You can't beat the pool right outside your door, great for a dip in the quiet morning hours or for a refreshing swim after a long day at the beach.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      My husband worked hard to constantly improve the condo during our years living there. He handmade the gorgeous bathroom countertop, which evokes a nautical feel. He retiled the bathroom shower in a gorgeous dark slate, painted the kitchen cabinets, and built out the desk space and shelving himself. There are lots of little handmade touches throughout Kachi Ra that make it unique.
