Nice place, lots of space, good location, great host!

  • 5 of 5

The Schooner Bay unit was a great base for our trip. It's spacious with plenty of room to hang out and should sleep a family of 4 very comfortably. There's a coffee pot and microwave and stove and we were able to make the occasional breakfast in to save a little money while we were there.

The location was great: really nice view, and the Schooner Bay staff were very nice. We walked into Christiansted easily (~10 minutes or so) for dinner. I really appreciated being close to the Seaside Market (grocery store) which was good for dinner, snacks, sunscreen...

Tom was a great host for us. He helped us with a few activities (snorkeling tour and a sailboat sunset tour) and was very responsive when we had questions.

Schooner Bay #109 is perfect for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a GREAT 10-night stay at Schooner Bay #109! It's perfectly positioned for easy access into town for great restaurants and shopping or quick drives to the many different beaches. Everything you need to truly experience the best of the Caribbean. There's a full service market located right around the corner as well as No Bones Cafe about 100 yards away for a great night out. We didn't want to leave but sadly reality had to return. We will definitely be back as soon as possible!!

Excellent visit!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this condo for a week in May. Outstanding location and extremely safe. My wife walked to town while I went scuba diving. Convenient to downtown and has a great bar/restaurant right around the corner. All the conveniences for a marvelous vacation. Nicely furnished and all appliances worked! Owner was highly responsive to inquiries. Great pool!

The description of the condo provided was accurate and helpful. Have been to St. Croix several times. This was the best for the price. Highly recommended and will rent again whenever I return.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and comfortable for the 2 of us. Had family staying at Colony Cove a few miles away, they had the better view, ocean front, we had better pool and with all of the shops, restaurants ( The Bistro for Breakfast, talked to the Bidens ) they agreed we had the better deal.

It was just as advertised. The island was gorgeous. If you could get to / from airport there would be very little need for a vehicle unless you want explore the island. Exactly as advertised.
