Recent Christiansted reviews

  • Lovely Unit in St. Croix

    "I expected a lot after having read the reviews of this condo. The condo is beautifully furnished. It is in a great location. It is outfitted with just about everything you would need, beach towels, sunscreen, DVDs, books, WI-FI, etc. There were even fresh flowers in a vase when we arrived. Cynthia, the owner, provided us with a lot of pre-trip info which helped us have a good start to the trip. The unit was very clean and the first floor location was great. We visited in August so there were fewer tourists, less tourists on the roads and no waits at restaurants. We had been a little worried about driving on the left side, but after the first day, it seemed natural. We would definitely recommend renting a car and making a tour of all the islands sites. Pelican's Cove's location was perfectly situated for touring, just watch out for the speed bumps. Don't miss the Curzan tour, Whim plantation, Cane Bay, and the winding mountain road to Carambola. Caribbean night at the Palms, Monday nights, was great! we had our best meal at Rowdy Joe's, and the ice cream at Armstrong's was worth the trip. Overall, St. Croix was a great place for a vacation, and Cynthia's condo at Pelican Cove was the perfect place to stay. We would definitely come back!"

  • Great location with an outstanding view

    "We stayed at Miss Bea Haven over Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time exploring St. Croix and relaxing at this gorgeous property. With very easy access to both Christiansted and the east end of the island, Miss Bea Haven offered a great location to explore the island. A few nearby grocery options made it easy to pick up food and make meals at the house (which is stocked with everything you need in the way of appliances). Though the bedroom had air conditioning, we enjoyed having the louvred windows open and night listening to the passing rain showers and enjoying the cool breezes. Overall, we would definitely recommend Miss Bea Haven and look forward to going back."

  • Perfect Get Away

    "My husband and I had the best 5 days in the cottage to begin our Caribbean vacation. It was truly a stunning place, both inside the cottage and outside. The seclusion made it just the perfect get away for us. We bought groceries and really hardly left the cottage. The ocean views blew us away, the breeze being just the right amount. We were able to experience nature in its true form (while having the comforts of home) from the amazing colors of the sunset and sunrise, the moonlight and one night the milky way! Coming from an urban setting seeing the stars in its full glory was exquisite and memorable. We have already decided this was a place to return to in the future. One thing to note, being so isolated, a 4x4 may be something to consider and be forewarned of the critters from small to big. Our last night there we encountered 2 giant centipedes (around 10 inches) in the bathroom which made our city folk skin cringe more than a bit. Overall, an experience of a lifetime to be in this cottage on this beautiful island."

  • Fantastic Stay

    "The stay here was amazing. From the view to the amenities to the helpfulness of the owners, it was truly a wonderful experience. The amazing view and sound of the ocean was incomparable. When we got home, our house sounded too quiet because there was no sound of the waves crashing on the shore. The condo is close and convenient to everything and the property itself is maintained well, quiet and relaxing. The balcony is large and you could look out over the water for hours. The inside of the unit is very comfortable, decorated nicely and has all the comforts of home. There is a restaurant within walking distance at the Palms at Pelican Cove (that has a theme most nights, including Caribbean night on Thursdays) and there are many other places to eat, shop and explore a short car ride away. The pool area was very nice and quiet too and the beach was great to sit at and look out at the water. The owners provided a lot of information and helpful tips to enjoy beautiful St. Croix. Nothing is far away from this location. It is a great place to stay on a very special island."

Christiansted Travel Tips

Getting to Christiansted Vacation Rentals

Christiansted is one of the main towns on the island of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It was once the capital of the Danish West Indies and many of the historic landmarks reflect the colonial architecture of that era. Henry Rolston International Airport is one of the two major airports in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The airport hosts regularly scheduled direct flights with the U.S. mainland on several North American airlines. To cater to the European market, there are also direct commercial flights between St. Croix and several major European cities. There are also regular regional flights from neighboring islands including Puerto Rico, San Juan and St. Thomas.

Activities and Things to Do near Christiansted Resort Rentals

St. Croix is famous for its beautiful tropical coral reefs and abundant marine life. Divers can expect to see huge gorgonian fans, masses of tropical reef fish and enjoy pristine diving conditions. If you are happier on top of the water instead of underneath it, you can still enjoy the marvels of the reefs on various snorkeling excursions.

Kayaks and windsurfers are available for rent at many of the resorts and beaches. Kayaking is a great way to explore the coastline. If you want to improve your windsurfing skills, you can always sign up for a few classes at the local surf shop. Kite boarding is another popular activity along the coast.

Nature lovers can view some of the turtle nesting sites. There are several environmental groups that conduct studies on the turtles' nesting habits and they are always glad for volunteers who can assist with their monitoring and research.

For those that want a bit of pampering, there are several health spas that offer massage and a range of other beauty treatments. Some have treatment rooms overlooking the beautiful coastline where you can relax and enjoy your treatment.

There are three golf courses on St. Croix and tee-off times can be arranged by calling the golf club or resort. Several resorts have tennis courts where you can enjoy a game with a group of friends. Because the days can be quite hot, many of the courts are lit so you can enjoy an evening game when the temperatures are moderately cooler.

Travelers to Christiansted Villas

People that choose to stay at Christiansted vacation homes are those that enjoy stylish tropical vacations. It is a popular vacation destination for corporate executives looking for a break away from busy city life. Scuba divers are drawn to the pristine coral reefs and almost perfect diving conditions. Sun lovers come to soak up the sun’s rays on the beautiful sandy beaches. St. Croix is a destination that invites relaxation. It is also a wonderfully romantic destination and popular with honeymooners or couples celebrating special wedding anniversaries.

Best Season to USVI St. Croix Vacation Rentals

St. Croix has what some people refer to as a perpetual summer season. The tropical climate is consistently warm throughout the year with little seasonal variation. The only thing that distinguishes the seasons are the amounts of rainfall and humidity. While Christiansted can be visited year-round, the only season to be cautious of is the rainy season when tropical storms or hurricanes occur on occasion. This is between June and November, with most storms occurring in August and September. The island is well equipped to deal with hurricanes and has storm shelters. With the exception of tropical storms, rain showers do not generally last long. These showers usually occur in the early morning or evening, and are short-lived. The days, while humid, are still wonderfully sunny. The driest months are February and March and this is also the peak tourist season. Year-round, the water temperatures remain fairly constant, providing excellent diving and snorkeling conditions.
