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!

Excellent Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed staying here. The place was immaculate had almost everything we could have wanted(A BBQ grill on the porch would have been ideal). It was so nice to be able to cook and do laundry at our place, our walk right down the beach to the restaurant.

The condo served as a perfect base camp for exploring the island. We rented a car and found that it was a pretty short trip to either side of the island. Buck Island is a must(though the reef is far from the islands best) and I recommend sailing there on Teroro or Dragonfly. They really sail, not the pretend sailing(with the motor on) that other charters do. If you like snorkeling, go near the wall. The Cruzan tour was ok but the drinks were delicious and plentiful. Point Udall and Jack's/Isaac's beach(a short hike) were our favorite.

Wow! This is a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

St. Croix is beautiful and this condo is the perfect place to relax after a day on the beach or some great sightseeing. Hands down my favorite adventure was snorkeling on Buck Island. Clear water, perfect temperature and a variety of colorful fish make for the perfect day. Of course we enjoyed lazy days on the beach and a couple (maybe more!) drinks with interesting locals.

We forgot our towels and I had a moment of disappointment until I realized that this condo has it all just waiting for us to have fun. The condo was very clean and it was obvious that they really tried to think of all the little things that would make our stay more comfortable. Four of us were traveling together and we had plenty of room; space to be together and privacy when we wanted. I have already recommended this property to friends and will again without hesitation. The location is an easy drive from anything you might want to do. Coming in late at night I felt very safe.

Beautiful fully equiped condo ready for a great vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Second trip to St Croix, was just as fun as the first. Best vacation spot you`ll find. So much to see & do on the island. We rented jet skiis, Took an ATV tour through the jungle, did the night kayak tour with the bioluminessence, took the Cruzan rum tour and so much more. The snorkling in St Croix is also some of the best you can find. The food & drinks you`ll find are also fantastic. (try the bushwacker or the BBC frozen drinks). Rent a car & stay on the left. Sure to have a great time !!!

Always Good to come home to Sea Escape

  • 5 of 5

Another visit to the Island and our home away form home in Pelican Cove!

This trip we ventured to the Botanical Gardens and had a great experience with the ruins and the flowers.

Check out this lovely spot along with all the other sites and beaches that St. Croix has to offer.

As always the condo was clean and inviting... felt like our home away from home the moment we opened the door and walked to the back gallery to listen to the ocean and watch the waves rolling in!

Thank you so much... we are looking forward to our next visit

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!
