Peaceful vacation getaway
Joan’s condo was excellent! I have stayed at Crystal cove for eight straight years and hers is the nicest one yet. The condo is very close to the beach and when you sit on her porch, you can hear the waves of the ocean. I would definitely stay there again.
I am so glad your stay was positive; I hope to be able to rent to you again next year!
Well appointed, home away from home!
This unit is very clean, and had everything we needed plus more! Having beach towels there for us was great! Plenty of space for our family of 4, we were very comfortable. Ground floor & close to the beach made relaxing so easy. The view and unit were better than we could have imagined! Easy to travel into Red Hook for groceries and a meal. Norma greeted us upon our arrival and checked in on us to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The beach was fabulous and the snorkeling was amazing! Overall, the unit was very clean, plenty of pots & pans, all beds were comfortable, great location and view, the grill was a plus, good parking, plenty of seating in the living room, and newer appliances. We were very pleased with everything you provided for us to enjoy, we will be returning!
So glad you enjoyed your stay; we look forward to having you stay with us again!
Great Spot if you love the beach
Great condo - great location. Walk right out onto the beach of your dreams with breathtaking views of St John and BVI. Quiet and comfortable with room for four. 1 minute by car to Red Hook and the ferry or car barge to St John. Snorkleing and swimming fantastic. You will be very sad when you have to leave esp with Mamma Norma always there to help with any of your needs! Will hopefully come back soon! Thanks Joan.
Nice Condo, great location
The condo was nice and could easily handle 4 people. It was very close to the beautiful beach. The beach had people on it throughout the day but was never crowded. All of the other vacationers and residents were friendly and helpful. Red Hook is a very short drive (mile) from the condo and it had several places to eat and a grocery store.
Fantastic Family Vacation
Joan, thanks again for sharing your place with us. You were very accommodating and easy to deal with. We had a wonderful stay at Crystal Cove. Your condo was everything we hoped for - it was updated with comfortable beds (no small feat for our standards), the right size, had everything we needed for the week and the location was absolutely perfect. We have traveled throughout the Caribbean and Sapphire Beach is one of the absolute best beaches we have experienced. The unit itself was less than a minute walk from the sandy beach so it made going back-and-forth for meals and drinks very easy. I could even watch my daughter play on the beach from the screened porch. We made it in to Red Hook each night and enjoyed your recommendations there too. We hope to be able to make it back again, maybe even next year.
This was our first trip to St. Thomas so I selected this unit based on other VRBO reviews. We couldn't have been more pleased. Our building was closest to the beach so maybe a 50 yd walk. Great view of other islands, particularly St. John. Convenient to Red Hook, which is where you can catch the ferries to other islands. And there are lots of great restaurants in Red Hook so really no need to go elsewhere. Condo was comfortable and the owner was very accommodating. We only saw "Norma" (mentioned in other reviews) once during our stay but probably because we spent a lot of our time exploring. We did cook breakfast most mornings and the condo was outfitted to make that quite easy. If there is a negative, it's the iguana that lives in the tree that overhangs the back porch. He liked to leave little "presents". We never found a hose with which we could rinse it all off so just had to step gingerly. But truly a wonderful place to stay! Faced east so saw some gorgeous sunrises!
