Why Tom Yaegel chose USVI/St. Croix

St. Croix is the perfect place to be laid back and relax. It's unique combination of culture, history and the perfect tropical setting are unsurpassed in the Caribbean. Under the US flag, there is less stress coming and going than foreign islands. Plus you have the convenience of the US Post office and US banks and the protection of US laws. Perhaps the greatest benefit is the weather- perfect year around. Average 12 month daytime high is 85-88 degrees. Average nighttime low is 75-78 degrees.

What makes this condo unique

Centrally located, close to Christiansted town with its array of waterfront shops, restaurants and historical sites. Plus we're close to great beaches such as the Buccaneer, Shoys and Tamarind Reef.

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.

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.

First Visit to St Croix

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to St Croix, and we found the island and people comfortable and friendly. Tom went out of his way to be sure we had information about the island before we arrived, then checked in with us early in the week. He also went "above and beyond" by helping us with the return of a very important travel voucher accidentally left in the unit. We appreciated his care and concern. There were also lots of little extras, like an endless supply of beach towels, which made our stay more pleasant. The condo is in a great location with a nice view of the Christenstaad harbor ( note: posted view is from the pool and does not represent view from the unit).

However both the condo and the complex have seen their better days. Pools were reasonably maintained but the tennis court was a mess, and this is one of the reasons we chose this location. The condo was very clean but dated; beds not that comfortable; kitchen appliances and dishes just average. We have stayed in much nicer places on other islands for about the same price. Although we may return to St Croix again I'd search for something a bit more upscale next time.

Owner's Response: We really enjoyed having Gail and her family stay with us and we are glad they enjoyed everything. Just about all fixtures and cabinetry as well as granite counter tops in kitchen and baths as well as appliances and split system central air conditioning systems are new within the past 5 years. Bed linens, towels,etc are replaced as needed on an ongoing basis. We do need to replace the guest bedroom twin bed box springs and mattresses and that has been scheduled. I also happen to be president of the condominium and can say that the swimming pools and surroundings have been thoroughly renovated within the last 2 years. All buildings except for some exterior rails and trim have also recently been repainted and the rails and trim are now (as of 4/26/15) in progress. In regard to the tennis court, we do not have a tennis court resurfacing company on a small island like St. Croix and we are reliant on contracting with a professional company when they can come to the island to work on several courts in a trip. We are fortunate that such a professional tennis court resurfacing company is coming to St. Croix this June and we have contracted with them to completely resurface our court and do other renovations to the facility at that time with all work to be completed by June 30, 2015.
