Why Ben Achenbach & Earl Parson chose Estate La Grande Princess

After traveling through most of the U.S. including all three U.S. Virgin Islands, we decided St. Croix was the best location for our vacation home. We chose our home away from home in Pelican Cove because of its central location, proximity to the beach, and beautiful views of the Caribbean.

What makes this condo unique

St. Croix has a calm, laid back vibe. For a tiny island, there is so much to do and see, including the best scuba dive sites in the Caribbean, excellent snorkeling, suburb restaurants, unique shopping, and gorgeous sunsets. With temps in the 80s and continual tropical breezes, St. Croix is a great place to relax and rejuviate.

Nice, clean, quiet location near the water.

  • 4 of 5

Nice clean condo with plenty of room! Air conditioning worked wonderfully. We were able to cycle it on and off as needed. This is a quiet, well maintained gated complex. Nice view of the ocean. I enjoyed eating breakfast on the balcony while feeling the ocean breeze and watching the waves. I would like to thank Ben for being accommodating with our change of arrival and departure dates. We unfortunately got stuck in Miami do to bad weather and we had to make some changes. So thank you Ben for being understanding and rearranging that for us. I would suggest that you arrive during daylight hours as we arrived late and it was pretty difficult to find the property in the dark. I think Google Maps was a little confused and with there not really being street signs its a little tough. But super easy to find after you know where you are going! My one suggestion for driving would be to find the Resort: The Palms at Pelican Cove and go into the resort, then just to your right is the gate to Pelican Cove Condos. My one complaint would be that the beach here is not really good for swimming. When I had read information on this location it said we had access to a beach good for swimming next door at The Palms at Pelican Cove and you do have access to the beach however we walked quite a ways down the beach and never really found a good spot for the kids to swim. There is a lot of moss in this area. My next suggestion would be to verify the gate code before your arrive. The code that we received in the check in instructions didn't work and it was around 11pm by the time we found the property and so as you can imagine the office was closed and no one answers calls that late. We got lucky and someone came behind us and we were able to follow them in, but if I had to do it again I would verify that code before hand. Also the gate codes got changed while we were staying there, apparently the complex changes them a couple times a year and we weren't notified of that. We did receive the correct code after asking, but would of liked to have been informed. It made me a little nervous every time we left that we may not be able to get back in. Condo was well equipped with anything you could need for a day at beach. The kids made good use of the Body Boards! It was a plus having beach towels available and a washer/dryer in the condo. We would definitely stay here again.

Be sure Check out Monday nights show! Moko Jumbies/line dancing! It was a so much fun!

Caribbean Paradise

  • 4 of 5

This was our first week long vacation in St Croix. Sur La Mer was a very nice comfortable condo. It has a great view from the balcony. It's in the English building 2nd back from the ocean. Being an end unit was nice because of the windows and more cross ventilation of airflow. It was comfortably furnished, had plenty of towels and dishes. Pelican Cove complex is very nice and has one of the largest pools on the island. We spent every evening hanging out in the pool. October is one of the slower months and all but two days we were the only ones in the pool. This condo is centrally located but far enough away from town that there is no noise or light pollution but close enough to grocery stores. Christensted is approx. 10 minutes away. We ran out of propane in the gas grill on our first night and Earl the property manager promptly refilled both tanks for us. Sur La Mer is a great bargain for the cost, we highly recommend it.

Quiet, right on the water, great location near Christiansted

  • 5 of 5

Roomy beach apartment with ocean views – plenty of space in each room with a large balcony. Very comfortable. Short drive to Christiansted. It's about a half-hour or so to Fredriksted but on St. Croix, nothing is too far. Our rental agent was very helpful with all our communications and concerns, including providing us a stroller as we were travelling with our two-year old. The resort itself has a great pool and hot tub. The unit is about a five minute walk to the beach, right near great swimming on Pelican Bay. Some of the shoreline has a lot of coral, but there is a designated swimming area that is great. There is a restaurant on the premises as well which is very convenient. Also – just down the road from a grocery store. We stayed in December which was very quiet. Technically the "rainy season" – but just the occasional rain shower – nothing that interrupted the sunshine for too long.

We hope to see you again in the future...please accept our offer of 10% off your next stay and have a great Holiday !! Earl

Spacious convenient condo

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed there in April 2015. the condo is spacious, but out dated. Being so close to the beach, you can see that the cabinet hinges in the bathrooms and kitchen have rusted onto the cabinets. The beach is nice, but it is too rough for swimming and if you snorkel go with a buddy as there is quite the rip tide. Something I ordinarily don't expect when I have rented condos, bring/buy toilet paper. Each bathroom had about an eighth of a roll. We called and the rental did deliver one new roll very quickly. We did buy another roll. The condo is conveniently located and you can get to any attractions fairly quickly. We did have a power outage (which I understand is quite common on the Island). There were no written instructions on what to do. We started conserving water (not flushing; did not shower), but then we realized that the water pump is on a generator. Would have been nice to know that from the start.

Perfect Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Two of us singles shared this lovely, well-appointed unit for eleven days. Very quiet, spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with spices (and rum!) and useful items like beach towels, lawn chairs for the beach and four sets of snorkelling gear are provided.. We spent time at the pool as well as swimming and snorkelling at the hotel's beach. The hotel offers diverse evening entertainment with the Monday Caribbean Night highly recommended. We rented a car for side trips to Christiansted, Buck Island (use Llewellyn's Charter to get there), Point Udall for sunrise, and went with Bush Tribe for kayaking the biolumenescent bay at Salt River. The nearby Salud restaurant is excellent. The quiet (no blaring music, TVs or late night partying in other units) made this the perfect place to escape the sub-zero temperatures "back home" for a little while.
