Super location......BUT!!!

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I absolutely loved the location as far as the beach/water was concerned. It was less than a mile walk into Frederiksted, you can walk down the beach or the road. There are 2 beach bars you also can walk to, one to the left and one to the right....both less than a half mile away. The one to the right(Rythems) we spent several days there, the food was good and usually had entertainment.

Now for the not so good. As much as the location was great on the backside the front of the house was about 12 feet off the road. It's a pretty busy road so the noise is loud well into the night. There are 3 ceiling fans in the unit, only 1 worked. Since there's only AC in the bedroom it can get pretty toasty without the ceiling fans working. The pool was unusable the 4 weeks we were there, dirty and green. My wife and I didn't come for the pool since the ocean is so beautiful. This rental property has 2 other rental units( 1 beside and 1 above) on the property so if you are looking for privacy it's not here.

We stayed for a week (one bedroom apt) and it was terrific. Teri and her assistant, Steve, were very responsive to our (small) requests and we loved our vacation! The apartment is nice and looks just like the photos. The real gem is the location-really just ten steps to the most magnificent beach and clearest water one can imagine. Good snorkeling and the walk on the beach to town was easy and fun. We hope to be back again soon!

St Croix Paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you are traveling to the United States Virgin Islands, don't stay anywhere else, this St. Croix gem is perfection! Communication with Teri was excellent. The place was clean and had everything we needed. The location is easy to find and just minutes away from downtown Frederiksted. Once there, you'll realize you are in one of the most beautiful places in the world, and it's at your doorstep. Just outside your patio door is the beautiful Caribbean, and long beautiful beaches to your left and right. The pool is clean and well maintained. Getting around the neighborhood is simple, there is minimal traffic, and stores nearby. But, why drive when you can walk along the beach all the way into Frederiksted. Polly's Cafe is excellent. Locals are friendly and easy going. So, get some good books, your swimsuits and flip flops, message Teri, and book your next trip to paradise now. We are sure glad we did!

Close to Paradise...

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time! Thank you, Teri and Steve and Fredericksted and St. Croix for a truly lovely, relaxing, and rejuvenating vacation. The chalet is amazing. From the moment we first opened the front door and saw the incredible view through the glass wall in the back, the place was awesome. Even before breakfast, decisions were hard… do we swim in the pool, swim in the ocean, snorkel, or simply lay on a chaise on the back patio and relax. Decisions like that filled the day. We had great neighbors in the other dwellings on the property which is important, because a noisy neighbor could be a problem and a good neighbor can add to the fun. Also, the rubber feet and fins that were provided for snorkeling were all in the big house, so we shared. There is no tv, which is not a problem, and the wi-fi is sporadic, which is a problem. And a larger table for eating either inside or outside would have been nice. But the view and the temperature, and the fabulous little lizards made us forget all problems. It is only a ten minute walk into town and a number of good restaurants, but if you want to get food for the kitchen and cook in the apartment, we highly suggest Plaza Extra Supermarket about 5 miles past town on Route 70. And driving on the other side of the road is actually fun (so my husband tells me). This place is highly recommended!

Second stay, better than the first!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here... It really is a piece of paradise. It's the best "room with a view" on the island! Bbq, pool (never used it since the beach is there), beach, sunset, local rum, daily visits from beaitiful birds and iguanas..... What more can you desire for a relaxing stay!! The location is great, a quick and scenic 30 minute drive to Christiansted, but far enough away that you don't get the touristy feel of the capital. Teri and Steve are great! We notified Teri of a non-issue for us, we just wanted her to be aware... Steve took care of it before we could even return from our coffe run (Polly's in Frederiksted is the best). Frederiksted is a quiet little center, full of yummy food and local shops. Its a couple minutes drive, or five/ten minutes walk. If you want to get a local vibe, it's the place to spend your days. We ate at Rose's a few times when we weren't grilling freshly caught fish or locally raised beef.. If you like west Indian food, try her cooking! The snorkeling right outside the door is some of the best in the island, and there are a couple of dive shops close by if you want to scuba... Bonus: The west end has the best sandy beaches, and is closer to the rainforest.

We love this place, there isn't another like it!!

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our 10 day stay at this wonderful property. The location was great and the views from the property were fantastic. We ended up having the complex to ourselves which was great. This was our 1st time doing a vacation rental and we were very happy with it. Teri and Steve took care of the two small issues quickly. The property is just a short drive or walk from Fredricksted so you can soak up the local culture. This is not a new property but has been maintained well and had everything we needed and then some. There were no one else booked in any of the other units so we had the complex to ourselves. I would highly recommend this property and we hope to go back and stay there again.
