About the property

Spectacular views at Pelican Cove - Your own luxury Caribbean Penthouse

1,665 sq. ft. Penthouse – 3rd floor with exclusive 4th floor master suite, soaring ceilings and two large covered balconies one for dining and grilling, including teak wood bar. The upper balcony is an exclusive 4th floor private oasis, which features spectacular panoramic Caribbean views. This truly sets our property apart from all others. Enjoy watching the sky and listening to the surf with a gentle breeze from your perch on top of this idyllic beachfront condo.

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.

Nightlife ...

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.

Pelican Cove is one of the top three condominiums on St. Croix, and is the most centrally located. Our gated community has an on-site maintenance staff, who are always eager to be of assistance.

We come several times a year to avail ourselves of it's unique benefits and to make sure the property is well maintained for our guests; many return year-after-year.

The weather is typically tropical and sunny and varies little between seasons although summer is slightly more humid. The temperature averages in the 80's during the day and 70's at night. Brief showers of rain (most last only minutes) provide a total annual rainfall of about 45 inches. Trade winds gently blow across the island, keeping the humidity low.

English is the language spoken by residents. As a U.S. territory, the island is governed by U.S. laws and uses the U.S. dollar as it's currency. US citizens need no passports, just a picture ID - easy in and out.

Why Jim Andreas chose Estate La Grande Princess

Why the Owners Chose North Shore ...

St. Croix is the largest, most diverse, and friendliest of the US Virgin Islands. It isn't too touristy, but there is so much to do and see, yet it feels like a small town.

St. Croix is a best kept secret of the Caribbean.

What makes this condo unique

Wake up every morning to spectacular views, sunshine, warm tropical breezes, and the gently sound of the waves. Great place to paint, read, write, sleep, recover, relax, revive your spirit, enjoy your loved ones ... and have fun.

Privacy - this condo has no overlooking balconies, it's in the quietest building on the property because of the beautiful wild nature preserve next door. It's large enough for everyone to have their own space and open enough for everyone to have fun together. The huge pool is the best on the Island - without chlorine, and we have a great staff that is so willing to help!

This Penthouse at Pelican Cove has it all within walking distance, Caribbean Sea, chlorine free pool, tennis, two restaurants/pubs, and beach. Because there are only 47 units on an expansive and beautifully landscaped 8+ acres, you have the beach mostly to yourself - private, quiet, but centrally located, near shopping, water sports, town, airport, and The Palms Hotel, etc. The beach is beautiful and ever changing. You'll never get tired of walking it, getting in the sea, or simply watching the waves roll in.

Three great public golf courses nearby - Carambola Gold Club, a Robert Trent Jones design and Buccaneer Golf Club are the best. Great restaurants and Crucian fare wait. Rum and other refreshments are inexpensive.

There is simply always something fun to do every day in St. Croix.

An outstanding value rental.

Reviewed March 1, 2015 NEW FlipKey

We have rented villas and condos in the past and this condo was one of he best equipped condos we've ever rented. It was very spacious and all furnishings were in excellent condition. We spent much of our time on the spacious terraces which had lovely private views. Communication with the condo owners was excellent. The pool area was larger than some of the hotels we visited. The other condo owners were very friendly always greeting us and saying hello. We highly recommend renting this condo.

Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

Overall the condo was very nice. Beds and furniture was comfortable and the unit was clean. I stayed for 3 weeks for work. I had family visit while I was there and there is plenty of room for a larger group. Good location about 5 min drive to Christensted. The washer and dryer were a nice feature and the seating on the upper deck were very nice. Easy walk to the Palm restaurant and bar. Food is fairly good. I was staying during the slow season so many units were unoccupied. The pool is very nice and was usually deserted.

All a person could want on St. Croix!

  • 5 of 5

I'm certain the owners have heard this before but this place is paradise! The beautifully appointed condo is the perfect home base for all our island explorations. We enjoyed beginning our day with a gorgeous sunrise from the penthouse bed! Walking along the beach was the first activity which was always followed with a swim in the very large pool. So refreshing! The pool was well maintained. We often went exploring the island during the day but loved coming back to that penthouse outdoor balcony! The views in 3 directions were breathtaking!! The owner, Jim, really seemed sincere in wanting us to thoroughly enjoy our stay. All the amenities you could desire were there for us to use. We greatly appreciated the use of Jim's beach towels and beach chairs. Would totally love to come back - such a beautiful place. Thank you immensely, Jim!

Absolutely Stunning.

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot properly describe the beauty of St.Croix and this property. The condo has everything you need for a comfortable and memorable vacation, including linens, towels (shower & beach), water shoes, chairs, washer/dryer & a fully equipped kitchen. Located north east, pelican cove is just a short drive to anything you would need. Our favorite place was cane bay (only 15 min drive). I would reccomend renting a car, if you want to visit multiple places.. taxis can get a expensive & so is the food. However, the beauty of St.Croix, the water, the skies, the people, the beaches... Its worth every penny.

I would highly reccomend this property for anyone who wants the seclusion of a condo along with the convenience to the culture and beauty that St.Croix has to offer.

Thank you for giving my family & I a vacation we'll never forget!

Great property and loaction!

  • 5 of 5

I took my two teenager's and one of their friends to St Croix in July. We had an incredible time. This rental was perfect. Clean, well stocked, perfectly situated. The pool and private beach were beautiful. We headed out most days to explore the island and hike, swim and snorkel. It was so nice to come back at night to this rental and relax at the pool or on the deck that overlooked the ocean. All the amenities of home made it a great spot for us.

12 glorious days

  • 5 of 5

We had 12 glorious days at Pelican Cove. What a fabulous spot.

This was truly one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever taken.

We have stayed on many Islands for the last 10 years, and

decided to stay at a beach and pool guest abode.

The best decision ever!

The views are great.

Snorkeling at Buck Island superior.

Enjoying reading on the beautiful

outdoor bedroom suite porch (love the hammock!).

Everything about this home is ideal.

We'll be back.

Thank you to Jim for allowing us to stay at your paradise.
