About Terry Anderson, OWNER

We purchased this property when we decided to add a little 'Caribbean Soul' to our lives. We are all avid divers and the diving on the island is really good!

Terry Anderson, OWNER purchased this condo in 2006

Why Terry Anderson, OWNER chose USVI/St. Croix

We decided to be as close to the beach as possible, without actually being right on the beach for a lot of reasons. Pelican Cove offered us what we were looking for... a minute walk to the beach which we see from our back gallery without the 'issues' that being on the water bring them... like heavy corrosion from the salt air!e

What makes this condo unique

The island is very diverse... it is the largest of the three Virgin Islands yet has the fewest people per square mile... we like the open spaces that abound. Warm weather and relaxing are the primary draw and we find the condo to be a perfect 'home base'.

Peaceful beachside condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our second trip to St Croix, first to this condo, won't be the last! Location is great! Brerakfast on the patio with ocean breezes and view. Then a walk on the beach, where we rarely saw more than 1-2 other people. We would recommend a car for access to the rest of the island. We have been to many carribean islands and St Croix is one of our favorite. No cruise ships! Very peaceful and friendly. Great for beach snorkeling and diving.The condo was great with lots of room and well maintained, as were the grounds. The owner Terry was very helpful with pre arrival directions, and suggestions for activities and sites to explore. We snorkeled in Cane Bay, explored Christiansted, tasted many of the islands restaraunts, travelled to Pt. Udall, explored Fredriksted, and enjoyed the barbecue just up the road. Visit to Cruzan rum distillery, and then tried our own hand at various island drinks. The best part of the stay was the location. Sleeping with ocean breezes, the privacy and quiet of the condo, and the walk to the beach every morning and evening would be enough to make this a worthy destination. Thanks Terry! We will be back for a longer stay next year!

St. Croix vacation

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at Pelican Cove in previous years, but not this location. The owner did an amazing job of accommodating guests with wonderful 'home away from home' amenities.

Day one we arrived and the air conditioning unit in the living space was not working; unfortunately, this went on for 2 1/2 days. Thank goodness that the bedroom units were functioning properly. It still made it unbearable during the day and uncomfortable for preparing meals. The other concern was the lack of cleanliness in the condo. I had to mop the living room floor and the kitchen after I noticed how dirty my feet were after walking around the condo on the first day. The shower liner in the master bath was dirty and should have been changed or tossed and the comforter was stained and could have used a good cleaning too.

The owner was receptive to our concerns and followed up to ensure repairs were made in a timely manner.

We enjoyed the island and will return.

Thank you for sharing your Caribbean home!

Owner's Response: I t was unusual that a 4 month old A/C unit would not work... it ended up being a loose wire from the installers and had worked well for the quests who left the day before you got there. Thank you for letting me me know about it.... sorry it took two days to diagnose and repair... but it is an Island with limited services... no excuse... just a fact. As far as the floors go... this is a first time in 11 years of owning this property the state of "clean" was questioned... the cleaning staff takes great pride in the work they do and I did mention it to them they were very apologetic to me... and to you! And finally... i'm sorry your vacation was not all you had expected... this is the first 4 star rating I have had in 80 reviews!! For me it should always be 5 stars!

4th time better then ever

  • 5 of 5

So what can we say, another fantastic 3 weeks come and gone at this marvelous condo in St Croix. If you are reading this, then you better hustle over to the booking page, Just don 't take my weeks. The condo is everything that is described and more. First of all if you are coming, you will need a vehicle. I suggest Judi of Croix. Better service and pricing then the big national companies. Cars are new and well kept. Next the owner. Terry is amazing. He does not let anything go wrong. From the time you start dealing him, to the day you arrive, everything is done professionally. Breakfast every day is on the veranda. You rise to the sound of the ocean and the call of that 6am Rooster that we began to feed this year. Groceries can be found within 2 miles of the condo. Remember you drive on the left side and you immediately are on Island time...everything is done slowly. While you are on the beach, we found that the Buccaneer beach the best for sun bathing. They even have a restaurant on the beach where the ladies will come and take your order. We ate most ,lunches directly on the pier at Rum Runners. Lots to see if you want to take the time to do it, but we are beach bum senior citizens, so you find us under the sun.

The condo is equipped with everything and I mean everything. The neighbors are amazing and ready ot help. The pool is outstanding and the largest on the island. The Iguanas come out to play during the days and chickens run around all over the island.

So there you have an unbiased opinion. Once you come, you'll be back every year. We are from the Cape Cod area (Mattapoisett) but have met people from across the country at the Pelican Cove complex.

Magnificent condo on the water

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th time at this condo. The only word that describes it is magnificent. My wife and I have traveled the world and have decided St Croix is now our yearly visit. The owner of this condo is the easiest to talk with. Every item you can imagine is waiting for you. The first floor unit is great for anyone who has trouble climbing stairs. The unit is air conditioned but most times you will only need to open the glass doors to get cross ventilation.

Our mornings are spent having coffee on the veranda. The beach being so close is wonderful but we have explored the island and find the beach at the Buccaneer to be the best. If you need a vehicle, forget the national brands. Contact Brian at Judi of Croix. Each year we rent from him and the vehicles are in great shape, and at a much less cost then the major brands.

The unit itself is stocked with anything and everything you could need. If you need groceries you simply drive out of the condo (remember you are driving on the left side) and head for Food Town or any of the other grocery stores on the island. A doctor who takes walk ins and a pharmacy are 1/4 of a mile away.

What can we say, if you are coming to St Croix, then condo E-104 is your destination. We will be back for our 5th year next year.

Fantasic stay at Sea Escape!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for such a wonderful 2 weeks!! St Croix is a wonderful place for both relaxing and adventure! The condo was so homey and comfortable. It had just what we needed and it was great to have all the kitchen amenities there to fix small or large meals. Being able to do laundry and access our Apple TV at night made it even more like home!! Access to the beach was great and we took walks to find sea glass almost every day. We found some great snorkeling straight out from where the condos are if you are brave enough to walk out over the turtle grass and avoid the sea urchins!! (FYI, water shoes are a MUST for St Croix as the beach terrain can be varied). We used Judi of St Croix car rental as they delivered to the condo.(Brian was great) As first time visitors we didn't want to drive on the left arriving after dark, and boy was that a good idea. Be forewarned you WILL get lost on St Croix, but that is all a part of the adventure!! Rent a car for sure and explore!! Other high points include LaReins Chicken Shack, Isaacs Bay, Buck Island and the sunset in Frederiksted. Many many other wonderful things but you will find your own favorites!! Thanks so much to Terry for this wonderful stay!! The condo was just what we needed an more!! Highly recommend to anyone thinking of St Croix for the first time, or maybe a return visit!!

We had a wonderful time on our vacation at St Croix! The condo was comfortable and spacious, with an amazing view of the sea! The kitchen was well equipped so we went to the local grocers and ate several of our meals at the condo on the balcony, enjoying the view and listening to the surf. We loved being able to walk down to the beach from the back yard of the condo and taking walks along the waters edge. It was so peaceful and it felt like you had your own private beach! Some of our favorite places to eat was a local dive called Blue's BBQ, (the best BBQ on the Island). Also we frequented the restaurant at The Palms Resort, which was a short walking distance next door. We used a taxi for transportation, and they were exceptional with so much knowledge of the islands history. We enjoyed snorkeling at Bucks Island, browsing the shops and touring the historical buildings in Christiansted. We appreciated how friendly and helpful the people were! We would definitely recommend staying at the condo when visiting St.Croix!
