Stay Left My Friend!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the St. Croix experience, especially driving on the left side of the road! :)

Kathryn's Joy was a very clean, comfy condo. The view and the ocean breezes are unmatched! It was so peaceful! Royal, the property manager was a huge help when using the really contrary laundry equipment. Joe, the owner was extremely responsive to any questions we had before and during our stay. There is still some rebuilding and repairs from the most recent hurricane around the area but we found those inconveniences to be really very minor. Fun was had by all! Hope to return some day!

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

The view was spectacular!!! The owner Joe was so accommodating, he called and checked on us and made sure that we were all set up! This home was definitely a home away from home!

Beautiful Oceanside Condo

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here 2 times and will come back for more. The patio facing the water is really the money shot. The compound is nice and quiet and clean. The location is central to the activities on the island. We have had a party of 4 adults stay very comfortably and of course it can be very romantic for just 2. This unit is more private than the others in the same complex so it is our choice. The management is very helpful and informative if you need help or have a question. We look forward to this stay anytime.

Best little condo at this location.

  • 5 of 5

This is good and honest accommodation, and at a really good price. It is not luxury, nor does it pretend to be.

It is your home away from home, and a superb base for 4 people exploring St Croix, ideally located on trade wind coastline.

The interior of the condo is very, very tasteful, and adds to the vacation feeling.

The whole area is marked by the proximity of the ocean. There is a logic to that, I think.


Joe's condo looks to be the finest in the area. Water found its way in to the living room floor during heavy rainfall, but this issue was brought to Joe's attention, and is part of an upcoming repair.

Note that there is no air conditioning, but door screens allows a constant flow of air from the sea.

And sea is not far away!! The sound of waves is present at all times.

(Should you suffer from tinnitus, this place will give perfect relief, as gentle rolling waves will mask the tone you normally hear. Worked so well for me!).

Brian next door is caretaker of the condo. Promised to be there for us, day or night. And he was!!

All the sudden a need unrelated to the condo, and he helped us out! Bravo!

Joe, the owner, was exceptionally generous with his guides and list of places go/eat.

I would have loved to meet you in person, Joe. People around spoke well of you too.

I am happy though, that we got an upgrade at Budget Car Rental. The roads on the virgin island calls for a jeep, and there are hidden speed bumps everywhere, also on the road to the condo.

The pool is great. Really relaxed, and usually we were there all alone. Deep in one end.

Thanks for having us!

Owner's Response: It was my pleasure Mogens to help you and your family enjoy your visit to the island. My hope is that you return again for more island exploring (and frosty rum drinks as well of course!) Best, Joe

The price is right! Little goldmine!

  • 4 of 5

Oceanfront within just a few footsteps and beautiful scenery! Perfect ocean breeze to keep you cool. Quick and easy access to town and commuting. Beautiful furniture! Updated bathrooms. Nice private beach area and pool access shared with other tenants however, we were generally alone. Nice, quiet, and peaceful. The owner and Brian (director of condos) was very accommodating and helpful with recommendations of things to do and places to eat. Also it came stocked with many items you wouldn't expect such as kitchen, toiletry, beach towels, and much more necessities that kept us from having to go out and buy. I would highly recommend this condo! The only reason I didn't rate this a 5 star is due to a couple of minor things that wouldn't be detrimental to your stay.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

Kathryn's Joy is a wonderful ocean-front condo. The bedrooms and bathrooms are clean, comfortable and well updated. The living area is great and the kitchen has everything you need for a tropical get away! The star of the condo is the huge ocean front patio that features space to eat and relax! Loved watching the surfers! The owner, Joe, is outstanding with many helpful tips and suggestions that makes your St Croix stay that much more enjoyable!
