At Island Oasis its all about you! Every possible effort is made to ensure your comfort, relaxation and enjoyment from the moment you open the door. Mattresses ordered from the 5 star Bellagio resort; china plates to enjoy the fine Cruzan meals you prepare; a huge assortment of cocktail glasses for the libations you create on those beautiful Caribbean days and nights;wine cooler to keep things cool; all the kitchen tools that the fussiest of gourmet cooks would demand; a keypad lock programmed with your own personal code so no worries about keys;flat screen tv; free wifi; décor and views that will make you want to stay forever and the list goes on!

The kitchen is complete with all the tools to make a gourmet meal or just whip up a few tropical drinks and, for the java lovers in the crowd, a cappuccino /espresso maker. The outdoor gallery is approximately 30 feet by 10 feet with exits from the living area and master bedroom and a stunning view of palm trees, sea and sand; just sit back relax and stay a while!!

There are several beachfront condo buildings in St. Croix that are located in a high density neighborhood across the street from a large housing project. Island Oasis is unique in that it is located in a quiet and safe residential neighborhood on a 5 acre, lush, tropical, beachfront property.

Just pack up for the day and take an adventure to a private cove or beach and enjoy the sun, sparkling waters and the quiet lap of the waves drifting in. Most roads are paved so navigating around the island is reasonably easy. Road signs can be misleading so having a GPS can make your adventure a bit smoother.

The people of St. Croix are incredibly friendly and are eager to help you plan your day or suggest some little known places to explore or visit. Their helpful ways, bright smiles and easy going relaxed attitude will make the memories of your island adventure last an eternity!

About Cynthia Shaw

We currently live in Mississauga, Ontario Canada. In 2009 we went on a condo vacation in St. Croix and fell in love with the island and the people. We immediately bought a condo there and have been happy with our choice ever since. There was something about the island that just seemed to be a perfect fit in our life. It was reasonably accessible and offered so many of the activities that we enjoy such as snorkeling, golf, fine dining etc and was such a quiet peaceful place to be. Many days when we went off on a beach adventure we were the only ones on the beach. It was like we were on our own private island. We know first hand how important it is to make a condo vacation worry and stress free for our guests and strive to make sure that all your needs are taken care of. We are easily accessible 24/7 in the event you have any questions or concerns. No request is too big or too small!! We all work hard for our vacations and we feel that you deserve the best and, the best is what you will get!

Cynthia Shaw purchased this condo in 2009

Why Cynthia Shaw chose USVI/St. Croix

We decided to buy a condo in the Pelican Cove condominium complex as it was one of the more upscale complexes on the island. The grounds were very tropical and impeccably maintained. The surrounding neighborhood was much better then many other complexes and the location was central to all parts of the island make travelling around very easy.

What makes this condo unique

Our favorite part of the unit is the large outdoor gallery where you can sit and enjoy the gentle Caribbean breezes and enjoy the fabulous beach and sea view. The layout of the unit is great with large rooms thru out. Much of the complex is owner occupied so typically it is very quiet and low key.We also love the fact that you can see the ocean from almost every room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cynthia: We loved our stay! As a previous guest wrote: "we appreciate you having such a carefree condo and hope future guests will continue to care for it so that we can all come again and enjoy this beautiful place".



We appreciate the decor very much and that you keep quality linens on site. That was a huge blessing for us as we only had romm for 1 beach towel.



We also enjoyed the grill and thank you for supplying the propane. We used it twice and enjoyed our dinners very much.



All the best and thanks again!

Great Visit

  • 5 of 5

We spent a couple of weeks at Island Oasis in July 2017 and have nothing but wonderful things to say about the condo. Centrally located and situated in a quiet area near Christiansted, returning back to the condo after days of adventuring across St. Croix felt like returning home. We traveled with our two teenage daughters, and there was ample room for everyone. The pool is amazing, and the neighborhood chickens were a welcome treat every morning. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed, and there are markets nearby to restock. The owner made sure all of our questions were answered upon arrival, and even accommodated us with a late checkout (our flight was late afternoon). If there was one thing that didn't exactly meet our expectations, it was the beach located on the property which was narrow, rocky, and overrun with sargassum. Not really a swimming beach. But because there are SO MANY AMAZING BEACHES in St. Croix, this wasn't an issue for us. We would stay at Island Oasis again in a second and highly recommend it.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Island Oasis condominium. It was all that was advertised with beautiful views, very nicely furnished, and great setting. The beaches within walking distance were wonderful for walking, swimming and snorkeling. One had a reef to snorkel around, the other more open space for swimming. Beautiful pool and hot tub were always inviting and well cared for grounds around the buildings. Plenty of beaches to visit and easy to access with a rental car. Cynthia was a delight to work with and responded quickly prior to the trip with lots of information and even more quickly while we stayed there to do whatever she could to assist us. She is a wonderful host with a beautiful condo. We loved our time and particularly enjoyed Buck Island and Rainbow Beach. Took a diving lesson along the Pier with Adventures in Diving and ate frequently at the bar just west of the pier. Very relaxing vacation in a beautiful, slow paced setting.

Beautiful condo with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from having had the pleasure of renting this beautiful condo for 7 nights and I can't express how pleased we were with our entire experience! Cynthia, the owner, is top notch and has everything covered. She is only a phone call or text away and responds immediately to any questions you might have. Her condo is very homey and spacious and has all of the amenities you would ever need, including pots, pans, cookware, laundry detergent for the included washer/dryer, snorkel equipment, water shoes, cooler for the beach, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, bath robe, and the list goes on and on....It was very convenient having a front door lock that uses a code of your choosing so you don't need to worry about losing any keys or locking yourself out! There are hermit crabs, roosters, chickens, hens and kitties that will come visit you on the back porch as well! We took care of them during our stay and are hopeful that other guests will do the same! The condos were very safe and we never felt uncomfortable. The staff is very helpful and if you ask, they will gladly cut open a coconut for you to drink the coconut water or to eat the coconut. The pool is the nicest pool we have seen on the island and they keep it sparkling clean. It has Olympic lanes for swimming and it was usually just us there so we felt like we were in our own little oasis. We swam and snorkeled next door at the resort and they had very good food and service as well there. We originally had reservations to stay at the Renaissance Carambola and we did go visit there to take the hike to the Carambola tide pools (highly recommend). We asked to see one of the rooms and although the resort itself was gorgeous, the rooms were very small and it was more of a hotel-room feel with zero amenities verses having an entire condo with a patio and grill, living room, dining room, full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a washer and dryer for less money! We definitely made the right choice by going with Island Oasis and will definitely be back!

Fabulously fun

  • 5 of 5

St Croix was wonderful and so was Cynthia's place. Three of us stayed at Pelican Cove for 8 days. The condo supplied everything that we needed. There was lots of condiments and such so we did not have to buy spices or mustards etc.

Make sure you have the gate code!! We arrived late and did not have the code. Luckily someone returning from The Palms let us through. Also make sure you rent a car. If you want to see everything, like us, you need it to get around. The roads are very challenging with deep potholes. Driving on the left hand side of the street also had its challenges.

At the condo we would sit out on the patio each morning. A few of the mornings there was a mother hen and her 7 chicks with a few roosters milling around. There is little geckos everywhere. A few hermit crabs came to see us. There are cats also though you can shoo them away easy enough. Take bug spray as there were some very nasty little mosquitoes. The bites only itch for a short time but we did get several of them.

If you want to do a great snorkelling trip to Buck Island, we went with LLewllyn on his catamaran. He is a good guide and the groups are only 6 to 7 people. His partner Dave also is a lot of fun.

In the rainforest, there is an obscure little bar where you can feed pigs beer. It is entertaining, though I thought their pens were too small. We also saw the Mocko Jumbies at The Palms next door. The buffet food was average but they were entertaining on Monday nights and not costly.

The best snorkelling with the most fish, I thought , was at The Fredricksted pier. Buck Island's coral trails were also very interesting. The see thru Kayak tour was my favorite. Kayaking in the dark to this nearby bioluminescent Bay in the Salt River National Historical Park was very surreal. I was in the same Kayak as tour guide Michelle and she was great. The phytoplankton lit up a light green when you disturbed the water. Waaayy cool. Make sure you don't forget (like I did) to take some extra dollars if you want to tip.

All in all a fabulous trip. Ignore it if your phone says that it is going to rain all the time. It does NOT!!! It only rained short periods if at all. Enjoy.

A little slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the condo for 5 weeks and have booked again for next year. Located about mid-island near Christiansted, the location worked well for travelling around the island. The Pelican Cove condominium complex is well maintained. It is a gated community and we never worried about security. We enjoyed the pool and watching the ocean. The pool is large and never over crowded. The condo owner, Cynthia, is very easy to work with and very responsive. The condo is well stocked with bedding, towels and all we needed to prepare meals. We spent many hours on the porch reading and relaxing. We rented kayaks at Virgin Kayaks (located nearby) and enjoyed their pedaling kayaks. For groceries, we shopped at Food Town (closest), Pueblo and Plaza Extra. We also shopped at Cost U Less. Shopping was an adventure. You do pay more for groceries on the island so be prepared. So many restaurants to pick from and there are restaurant guides you can easily pick up. Cynthia also provides helpful information in a binder. This was our first trip to St. Croix and we fell in love with this beautiful island and the condo was definitely our oasis!
