Property description

JANUARY 23 - FEBRUARY 6 ARE THE ONLY TWO WEEKS LEFT FOR RENT IN 2016.
Set on a one-mile beach bordering a calm-water bay, this West Indian–style resort adjoins a nature/bird sanctuary. Historic Christiansted is three miles away.

Guests enjoy the beach (two minute walk from our cottage), snorkel off the beach, sunbathe around a lovely sea-view pool, or enjoy the shaded pool gazebo. The resort’s restaurant is right at the beach and probably the most beautiful/romantic setting on the island. The separate bar area is also right at the beach.

Our cottage is a luxury studio, one-half of a two-unit building. The resort has the feeling of a little village with 35 small cottages in a lovely setting. We are on a low slope with a lovely covered porch facing flowering gardens with views of the ocean. One minute walk to our beach. Kitchenette with cooktop, refrigerator, microwave, dishes, pots and pans, etc. We have a terrific, covered porch where we read, paint, eat by candlelight, rock in the rocking chair, watch sunsets, etc.

What we love about Chenay Bay is the beautiful surroundings, the relaxed, quiet, friendly atmosphere. Children are welcome. Honeymoon couples are here often as well. Many people have been coming back for over ten years. If you want beaches right here at Chenay bay we have three beaches, each with their own character. At the resort a lovely beach (voted best beach on St. Croix by the Virgin Island Daily News)with palm trees and sun umbrellas. It has never been crowded in the many years we have been here. Great for kids too. Adjacent to the left is a long beach with no development which borders the nature preserve. Great for walking and collecting shells. On the right is another very long beach with minimal development where you can walk for 1/2 hour or more before you turn back.

A woman from Italy who has traveled the Carribean and the world came here for the first time and said (after driving around and checking out the other resorts on the island) that this place and this island are so delightful and relaxing that she wants to come back next year.
I talked to a fellow coming home on the plane who came down to St. Croix for the first time to scuba dive. He said it was the best he had ever experienced.

A couple from North Carolina told me they drove all over the island checking the 'best' beaches in the guidebook and thought Chenay Bay was the best. Many other beaches and resorts are quite windy. Chenay Bay is in a cove and protected by a small island.

There is so much to do on St. Croix. (Caribbean Travel and Life magazine featured St. Croix as “the next hip Caribbean destination” in an 11-page feature spread.) Chenay Bay is very conveniently located near Christiansted, a delightful small, historic city with interesting shops, art galleries, terrific restaurants, oceanside bars. Martha Stewart came here on vacation with her family and wrote a blog about her great time.

The Fort in Christiansted is a National Park run by the National Park Service. Interesting self-guided tours. The Botanical Gardens, 30 minute drive, should not be missed. See examples of all the plants on the island. Also historic ruins. Very beautiful.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We first came to Chenay Bay in 2000 when we visited our son who opened and managed the Cape Air station at the airport. Chenay Bay was just starting to sell timeshares at that time. We found the low-key, quiet, atmosphere along with the beautiful beaches, flowers and trees so pleasant that we bought two weeks. Over the years since then we bought more weeks. The cottage we have is just right for us with it's lovely porch with ocean views and no other cottages behind us.
