Why Tom Yaegel chose Christiansted

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 74-78 degrees.

Perfect place to stay on St. Croix

  • 5 of 5

The Schooner Bay property is well maintained, secure, and perfectly located near Christiansted. Tom was an excellent host, providing great pre-arrival information, checking in with us after arrival to make sure all was well, and checking in with us a few days before departure. The condo had everything we needed and was clean and comfortable. We really appreciated the personal attention.

Nice, clean - great internet

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here 3+ weeks looking for long term place to live. Tom's place is clean, new furniture. Nice view of the harbor and close to downtown and the boardwalk.

We didn't have cable the first couple of weeks, but it was finally restored just before we left. Noise and lights from the dock where supply ferry's coming in can be a distraction once in a while - but nothing terribly out of hand. Road you have to take to get to complex needs a lot of work as well. Internet there is great~!

I thought pricing may have been a bit high for the place, but we needed a place and this one worked. We would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much, Bill and Angie. Glad you enjoyed your stay and you can't beat the convenience of the Schooner Bay location. Sorry about the road in front. Public Works and the Port Authority have a plan to improve the road which we hope will be implemented soon plus the supply dock is going to be relocated to the south shore. Very happy you liked the decor and cleanliness. My wife, Ann, and Carmel, our housekeeper, work hard to keep the place nice for guests and I will be sure to pass your compliments on to them. All the best in your search for a home here in St. Croix.

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!!

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.
