"Our family had taken a trip to St. John 15 years ago when our children were teens and stayed at Maho Bay, an eco camping experience and it was wonderful. This time we returned with adult children and decided a house would be more appropriate, given the differences in personalities and expectations. Alan and Sarah's home was perfect for a quieter stay on the east end. We rented two cars to allow flexibility in sightseeing and meeting up later. The double porches were great at allowing a constant breeze throughout the house, the DIVI resort was a quick walk down the hill for those who wanted to just spend time on the beach and the kitchen allowed us to have half our meals at "home", thus saving us money for some meals at the great restaurants scattered throughout the island. The rental process was smooth, any small concerns we had while we were there were quickly handled via email and the caretaker. The rental cost was worth every penny and we would return to this house just for the sunrises and gentle, warm breezes. Thanks for sharing your home with strangers."

"We really enjoyed our two week stay at Peace of St. Croix. It was clean, well-equipped (look for the beach chairs under the bed), and very quiet. The pool was great. It's location was convenient to Christiansted and the East End beaches as well as points south. All kinds of information about the island and its attractions was thoughtfully provided in a 3 ring binder to make it easy for first-timers to get to know what the island has to offer. We highly recommend it!"

"We stayed in this condo for 3 weeks. It's perfect for a couple. In theory two more persons could sleep on the convertible sofa, but it would be crowded in my opinion.
The owner is very responsive to questions and issues (of which we had a couple of minor ones). The condo was clean when we arrived. My wife and I are tall, so the KING bed was much appreciated.
Some general notes:
Roads on St. Croix can be very curvy and challenging after dark. However, the condo's location on the east end is close enough to Christiansted that we felt comfortable driving there after dark. Places you can walk to include: Cheeseburgers in America's Paradise (next to the condo complex), Shoreline at Chaney Bay, and Tamarind Bay (with two restaurants - Deep End and Galleon). Beyond that, you'll need a car.
The trip from the airport is fairly straightforward. The owner gave me a suggested route which I studied on-line for orientation. The owner also sent us a list of recommended car rental companies. We used an independent car rental (Skyline). They met us at the airport with the car. UNIQUELY IN THE US, VIRGIN ISLANDS DRIVE ON THE LEFT. However, cars do not have the driver's wheel on the right (as they normally would in left side driving countries). It's unlikely you'll need to pass anyone, so having the wheel on the left is not a major problem.
We're not beach people, but I noticed that nearby Chaney Bay is a nice beach open to non-residents - be polite and buy something from their restaurant while using their beach.
Various internet postings suggest that St. Croix has a problem with robberies, burglaries, etc. We encountered no such issues. Perhaps in high season, and when a cruise ship is calling, there might be more opportunistic crime against visitors. We live in a large US city, so we're used to common crime avoidance habits (e.g.: be aware of your surroundings, don't leave valuables visible, etc.). These precautions should be observed in St. Croix as anywhere.
Talk to locals about restaurants. Many open air places that appear to be snack bars actually have full menus with various cuisines.
We would book this condo again!"
