2 Bed/2 Bath Condo With Caribbean Sea And Buck Island Views For A Great Value!

Save!!! 10% on 7 night stay. Save 15% on 28 night stay.

Ard na Mara is a quaint, casual and very comfortable 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa within The Reef Condominium Community on St. Croix's very desirable East End. The Reef is a gated residential community of about 100 one and two bedroom villas situated on a hill overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea and Buck Island (a National Monument boasting one of only two underwater snorkel trails in the world). The Community amenities include a beautiful reef protected beach (with available lounge chairs and a couple of hammocks), a resort style swimming pool, a nine hole golf course, a new nine hole DISC GOLF course (the only such course in the Caribbean), and two tennis courts.

The villa has a well equipped kitchen with everything you need to make full meals and dine al fresco on the patio while taking in Caribbean Sea and Buck Island views. There is also a high top table with 4 stools in the dining area. A brand new (July 2017) split unit AC keeps the downstairs very comfortable during summer months when the floor to ceiling louvered windows and the trade winds aren't cooling the villa quite enough. The casual living room has a 50" flat screen TV with a Dish Network subscription; although we doubt you'll be watching much TV while you're here with so much beauty to enjoy outside. There is also free WiFi and cell phone reception tends to be pretty good. (There is no Verizon service on island. If you have Verizon please be aware of roaming charges).

This villa was once a one bedroom unit, but it has been creatively converted into a two bedroom. The upstairs has a lovely, open, loft style bedroom with a king sized bed with 12 inch cool gel memory foam mattress, flat screen TV and an en suite bath. This bedroom has a brand new split unit AC to keep you cool. The full upstairs bathroom features a stand up shower with a skylight allowing you to enjoy the warm Caribbean sun even in the shower! The downstairs bedroom has a comfortable queen sized bed, and an awesome indoor/outdoor shower. The shower is entered from the bedroom and is fully protected, and completely private, but the "roof" is just a screen. If you've never had the opportunity to shower outside in the tropics, you're in for a treat. We think being able to feel the breeze and hear the ocean tends to make one feel a bit more connected to nature.

In addition to the standard necessities such as toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, laundry detergent, etc. Available for guest use are beach towels, beach chairs, snorkel gear, a propane BBQ grill, and of course, a cooler for trips to the beach!

Alisha Vare is our on island concierge manager. She will greet you at the airport, assist with obtaining your luggage and rental vehicle and then escort you across the island from the airport out to the East End where the villa is located. We drive on the left side of the road, but our cars are American, right hand drive vehicles. Having someone to follow for the first time driving on the island can be very comforting. We aim to keep the villa well stocked, clean, comfortable and organized so that all you have to worry about is enjoying your vacation and relaxing!

About Karla Ellington

We live in Georgia . I am a pharmacist and my husband is an aircraft mechanic. We both grew up in small towns in Georgia but always wanted

to live the beach life.

Karla Ellington purchased this condo in 2017

Why Karla Ellington chose Teagues Bay

We went on many cruises around the Caribbean and kept returning to VI. We

came to St. Croix and fell in love with the people and the area. After touring

many houses and condominiums we found this property., this is to be our retirement home in 10 years or so. But we are happy to share it with you until

that time.

What makes this condo unique

We named it Ard Na Mara . This means loosely translated house on the hill

overlooking the sea in Gaelic irish , which we felt was very descriptive of

our home. We hope you will enjoy staying here as much as we do and

enjoy all that the island has to offer.

Great stay from start to finish.

  • 4 of 5

This condo and the Reef community had everything we expected.

The condo was neat, clean and comfortable . It has a nice location up on the hill overlooking the entire complex and of course Buck Island.

The property manager was always willing to help but we really did not need much.

The Reef community is maintained very well and plenty of friendly owners/renters to share time with.

Ard na Mara is about a 15 minute drive East of Christiansted (one of two towns on St. Croix), where there are many lovely shops and restaurants to enjoy. It is about a 10 minute drive further East and around to the South side of the island where Divi Resort and Casino is located. Divi boasts: Card games, dice games, live entertainment, a "snack shack", a great pizza parlor, two restaurants, and even a mini golf course and game room!

Fredriksted is the town on the West End of the island and it's about a 40 minute drive from the villa. The Fredriksted pier is known for great snorkeling, when cruise ships aren't in port (snorkeling and diving the pier is not allowed when cruise ships are present).

St. Croix's moderate rain forest and it's beautiful, lush vegetation are about a 30 minute drive away. Don't forget to see the beer drinking pigs at Norma's (yep, you read that right!).
