Property description

Please note: That our video was taken before renovating. Please refer to the photos for the most up-to-date look of our condo.

As you open the door the gentle breezes of the Caribbean trade winds whisper welcome home! At last you have arrived at St. Croix Splendor! Two steps in the door and you catch your breath at the spectacular view of ocean and palm trees; four steps in and you are in awe of the magnificent décor enhanced by cathedral ceilings and spectacular kitchen. You don't have to step any further to know that you made the right choice for your vacation in paradise! (Our current video does not have all of our updates. The photos are more up-to-date.)

St. Croix Splendor is located beachfront in the upscale condo complex of Pelican Cove. Within minutes to Christiansted, great restaurants, shopping and numerous outdoor activities, St. Croix Splendor's location offers the perfect balance between quiet serenity and bustling activity. Lounge by the stunning pool, relax in the hot tub, hike down the beach, hit the courts, take a day trip to Buck Island or just read a book. Do it all or doing nothing; it's your vacation your way!

The condo itself offers a warm and welcoming space for all. The living/dining is open concept with fabulous view of ocean and palms. Newly furnished in a designer style, the space would be considered elegantly comfortable with a casual twist. Big screen TV, DVDs, free WIFI and cable are just a few of the tools to entertain you! The master bedroom is fit for a king and queen with its king size four poster bed, walk in closet and full en suite bath. The guest bedroom has its own bath and has both a queen and a twin bed. Light sleepers beware; with the comfortable beds and soft ocean breezes you'll sleep better than ever before! The kitchen, as previously noted, is renovated from top to bottom with stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets and sparkling finishes. It provides all the conveniences of home and more. Cook up a storm or eat Island light; everything is there for any option you choose. The grand finale is the outdoor gallery overlooking the beach and the Caribbean Sea. Enjoy a cool cocktail, grill up a meal or lounge lazily in blissful thought; life simply couldn't get any better!

Activities on St. Croix are varied and fabulously fun with kite surfing, fantastic diving and snorkeling, championship golfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, sunset sails, hiking, swimming, sunning and more awaiting you. Never a dull moment if you're one to keep busy!

St. Croix is an Island like no other. The ambiance will enchant you, the tranquility will entrap you and its beauty will entice you to return again and again. We hope you will enjoy all it has to offer from the comforts of St. Croix Splendor! We look forward to you booking your stay!

This room also features a ceiling fan, TV and DVD player. The condo's layout separates the bedrooms with the 2 bathrooms for added privacy.

If you like to snorkel or haven't tried snorkeling, yet, St. Croix is a great place be. From this condo, if you walk down the beach to the front of the Palms Resort and go straight out from there, the snorkeling is splendid. It is well worth taking a sail to Buck Island to snorkel and enjoy the great beach . The reef and sea-life are spectacular! The pool here is one of the largest on the island and is a freshwater pool.

Car: Recommended

St. Croix is on the largest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands. The island has a natural beauty that is both charming and awe-inspiring. It's wondrous landscapes, hillsides views, beaches, and historic downtown areas have all vacationers would need. Add to all this a casino, golf courses, tennis courts, art galleries, shopping, live theater and a myriad of activities on and in the beautiful blue Caribbean Sea and you can't miss having the time of your life. Families would have plenty to do and would love staying at convenient St. Croix Splendor, your condo on Pelican Cove Beach. With the amenities we offer, you wouldn't need to leave the property once you've bought groceries. Don't forget this is a U.S. territory and English is the first language.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Our names are Kris and Russ. We named our condo St. Croix Splendor. Both of us were raised on Minnesota farms. Russ spent most of his life farming. We are retired now and are making the most of our free time. We enjoy being active all year round and certainly owning this condo gives us much to look forward to when the weather turns cold at home. We want others to experience our piece of paradise when we are not able to be here. Sandra at Calabash Realtors manages our property. (She is standing with us in our owner photo.) She handles most of the communications. She also may meet you at the airport or the property. Sandra is a convenient resource, since the office she works at is very close to our condo.

Why the Owner Chose Sion Farm, St. Croix, USVI:
We chose the Christiansted area of St. Croix for several reasons. Location was key. Our condo is quite central to the small island. St. Croix is about 27 miles long across its northern coastline, where Christiansted sits in a bay near the center of this length. Since the island is only 7 miles to the southern coastline, we have easy access to everywhere on the island. The vast majority of shopping destinations and restaurants are in and around downtown Christiansted and its boardwalk along the harbor. While it is ideal to live outside of the downtown area, we didn’t want to be far from it since it is the best spot for us to go and for our visitors to go to experience the variety St. Croix has to offer. St. Croix Splendor is situated where we can easily walk to the neighboring resort to dine out or get in the car and drive to any beach in no longer than 25 minutes. Many of the beaches are near great places to eat and drink. It didn’t take more than a couple of days during our first visit to St. Croix to realize that this is where we wanted a second home. The palm trees, the sand, the warm waters with its many colors of blue and the friendly islanders had us hooked. .

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
When we first walked into this condo we were swept away by the grandness of the space created by the cathedral ceilings in the Great Room and the spaciousness of all the rooms. When we continued on to the 3rd floor balcony and took in the view, we were in awe. Even now we never tire of using our balcony. We eat all our meals that we cook at home there and often bring take-out home to eat there, as well. We just can't get enough of the ambiance. This property is a standout from all the other rental properties that we've seen in coastal areas. It was clear immediately when we drove onto the property that the complex and the grounds are well maintained, secure, and in its own little paradise on the beach. From our particular condo, when we turn our focus off the mesmerizing, turquoise sea, we have some nice views of St. Croix's hillsides and the gorgeous tropical landscape right outside. This property is a standout from all the other rental properties that we've seen in coastal areas. It was clear immediately when we drove onto the property that the complex and the grounds are well maintained, secure, and in its own little paradise on the beach. It is a serene experience to walk around the lush tropical foliage and hear the rustling palm leaves and the waves. Even the parking lot is pretty. From our particular condo, when we turn our focus off the mesmerizing, turquoise sea, we have some nice views of St. Croix's hillsides and the gorgeous tropical landscape right outside. We are fortunate to have our rental manager, Sandra, who is from St. Croix and is very close by to insure your vacation goes smoothly. Who wouldn't want to call this home even if it is for a week?!
