St. Croix is the largest, most diverse, and friendliest of the US Virgin Islands. It isn't too touristy; it feels like a small town, and yet there is much to do and see.
Accommodations: Penthouse condominium, 3 bedrooms (beds... 1 King, 1 Queen, 2 Twins/King) There are two full baths with double sinks and a half-bath. The master suite has a view of Buck Island from shower. Everything you need is included - linens, completely equipped kitchen, in-unit private laundry, towels, and and beach chairs.
The sea is a protected coral reef, great for beach combing wave washed shells and sea glass. Access to the Pelican Cove beach is only a few feet from our back door. Lounge chairs await on the secluded strip of sandy beach. While all beach edges on the Island are public, Pelican Cove has a private manicured beach cut into its property line. More often than not, the beach is occupied only by sea birds and white egrets.
A few steps walking down the beach is excellent swimming and great snorkeling. St. Croix is famous for diving and snorkeling! Kayaking is minutes away with phosphorescent night trips available. Horseback riding on the beach can be arranged.
Our huge private pool (for Pelican Cove guests) is crystal clear and purified without unpleasant chlorine. There is also an open-air, hot tub adjacent to the pool.
This secluded area is ideal for teenagers to be independent and yet close to the property.
The pool setting is large enough to allow couples their privacy and families plenty of space for fun.
The Palms Resort is only a five minute walk along a lighted path and presents a wide variety of live entertainment to all. 'There's something fun for everyone almost every night of the week!' There is no need to leave the area for fun and food - 2 restaurants/pubs are right next door, but not intrusive. Ideal for an evening out without needing to travel in a car.
Duty Free Shopping in downtown Christiansted and a myriad of restaurants and night life are a ten minute drive from the condo. St Croix also features St George Botanical Gardens, Buck Island National Park, the Whim Plantation experience, many guided tours (snorkeling, diving and sunset cruises), golf courses and a casino.
This Penthouse luxury condo feels like a whole villa - private, quiet, two levels, not a soul peeking into your balcony areas, white egrets nesting in the wild within view.
