  • A little piece of paradise

    "A friend and I stayed here for nine days in Jan-Feb 2015, and we loved it. We chose Frederksted because snorkeling on the west end of the island isn't impeded by sea grass (which can be a problem elsewhere). And we chose this condo because it's right on the beach...literally steps from some great snorkeling and swimming! Plus it's a small complex, off the beaten path, very quiet and well maintained, with a beautiful pool from which you can watch the fabulous sunsets. But it's also not far from a variety of nice beaches, bars, good food, occasional live music (ie Reggae band), shops, and other small town amenities, as well as a large supermarket within driving distance. You can get by without a car, but we rented a jeep and felt it was worth the expense for shopping and checking out the rest of the island. Ours was a completely positive experience, but here are some things to consider when booking: the condo is on the 3rd floor (so has stairs), there's a spectacular view from the screened in veranda (but the proximity to the crashing surf means it's loud at night), and there's just one AC unit in the bedroom (but with the trade winds, we never actually needed it). Also, when they say "just bring your bikini" they mean it! We way overpacked. The condo has towels, shampoo/conditioner/soap, hair dryer, kitchen stuff, sugar, coffee, seasonings, some beach stuff, and more. No need to dress up, unless you want to. There's a washer/dryer/detergent on site. Bring your own mask and fins for snorkeling, tho. Wear sunscreen and hat! Our favorite day trip was on Captain Lew's catamaran for snorkeling and swimming on Buck Island (east side of the island). Lew and his "first mate" David are funny and laid back...not touristy at all. Lew is actually a musician, a cool cat who lived and recorded in New York years ago, and still plays local venues (currently at Cheeseburgers in Paradise). The snorkeling at Buck Island was good, but we saw essentially the same creatues right in front of our own condo, albeit in lesser numbers. Also, Lew let us shower at the yacht club after, so were desalinated enough to check out C'sted (Christiansed) before heading back to F'sted. Lew recommended lunch at Kim's (he's friends with the family), and it was good, authentic Caribbean food...I got the fresh local grouper. C'sted is more upscale and tourist oriented than F'sted, but both were nice in their own way, and local folks are friendly and helpful if you make the initial effort."

  • Great condo and location!

    "Beautiful condo - everything we needed was there, and a pool with a spectacular view. Location is perfect for travelers without a car as grocery store and several great restaurants are very close. Don't miss the Golden Rail restaurant at the marina for local color and musicians. Christiansted is about a 15 minute walk for more restaurants, shopping and the 90 second ferry to Protestant Key beach. Take the $2.50 taxi from Christiansted to Frederiksted! The owner is wonderful and answered any questions promptly. If we return to St Croix we wouldn't stay anyplace else!!"

  • Perfect!

    "Smugglers was the perfect house for anyone wanting to enjoy this island! Being on the east end was excellent because after exploring you could retreat to the quiet oasis and enjoy a swim. At first it seemed a little far but we ended up loving that it was private with a private beach... The view is spectacular from anywhere in the home. I found the house to be the highlight of our vacation. The set up of the home was ideal to include the landscaping, location, bedrooms, pool, deck, outside music, air conditioning for sleeping, all the extras (games) & on & on. We truly found relaxation on this trip because of that awesome view and lovely home! Thank you to the owners, well done...."

  • Island Perfection

    "Start with an excellent greeting at the airport, add a well decorated and well equipped condo, a comfortable bed and a beautiful sea view and you have perfection. The west end of the island is easy to drive around and a great starting point for exploring the entire island. Good food and fun bars are plentiful in Frederiksted and the surrounding area - breakfast at Polly's is a great way to start the day. The condo has everything that a person could ask for and special touches like coffee to get you started the next morning. The people of St Croix will always have a special place in our heart - as will this condo!"
