Most gorgeous view ever. True to photos on home away/ vrbo!

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped. Comfortable. True to photos on home away. Most gorgeous view ever. Plenty of space. Dan the property manager was very helpful and even checked in on us. He was very accommodating when our flights changed due to weather in meeting us at the airport and driving with us to find the house. Would definitely rent again! Loved it😊👍👍👍👍👍

Owner's Response: WOW! And thank you so much for the wonderful review. It makes us so happy when people enjoy their vacation at our home and on the island of St. Croix. Dan also appreciates the kind words. We hope to offer great service and good value for your money but you are right, the view and the outdoor living space is what takes the cake. Remember, if you do wish to return to our home, remind us you are a return visitor. We offer a 15% discount for all return visitors. Thanks again for your kind words.

This property was everything the pictures showed with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a beautiful private setting. The kitchen was well equipped with about every appliance you would need. The outdoor veranda is very large with views that you can't get enough of. Our flight home was late in the afternoon and the owner's were very accommodating in letting us stay until we needed to leave for the airport. I have been to St. Croix two times before and this was by far the best accommodation I have stayed at and look forward to staying here again on my next trip to the island.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. You are very gracious. We and the island residents are so glad you chose to come to St. Croix after their devastating hurricane. We appreciate you wonderful support and hope to see you again in the future. All our best to you and yours. George

Pictures don't do it justice!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing week we just spent at this property! The only thing I could really criticize was that our vacation was not long enough. We were with another family and the kids LOVED the pool! The view was unbelievable and staying on the South/East side of the island offered a secluded location to truly relax and enjoy. You are able to drive 5 minutes down the road and pull off on a lovely beach that is quiet (we were the only ones there each time we went) and full of coral and shells. The property itself has plenty of room, a beautiful and huge terrace area to grill and eat and read during any of the storms that may come in while you are visiting. The owners were lovely to deal with while booking and their property manager met us at the airport to guide us to the house when we arrived. Again, my only regret was that our we could only stay for a week. It was just what we needed! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

We hope that it is also considered a good value. In that light, remember we offer a 15% discount for all returning visitors. Thanks again and have a great fall.

Amazing hilltop home!

  • 5 of 5

The house is true to the photos and we all loved our stay. The views are just spectacular and the house is amazing. It's really nice that the house is well equipped with lots of pantry stapples. The outdoor seating is great and that's where we spent most of our time. The grill was great for barbeques and the oven is brand new. We really enjoyed all the house has to offer and would definitely return for another stay. Sad to be leaving this amazing island!

Owner's Response: Thanks Chris for your kind remarks. We continue to try to improve the qualities of the house-the new oven and the mattress pad in the Master bedroom-so we always welcome input on how we can make the house better. We hope you have a great summer and if you choose to return to St. Croix, we are ready to offer you the 15% discount we offer all returners. Thanks again for choosing our home!

A great place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great family vacation spot. Everything is available in the house as described.

Dave the property manager was helpful and guided us from the airport to the house and explained everything to us. When we had questions he was accessible.

Owners, George and Lori Hopkins did a great job on maintaining it. Def loved the scenery, kids loved the pool.

Would definitely come back!

Our hope is always that you will find our home as advertised and a good value for your hard earned dollars, but also that the experience is relaxing and with a limitation of the stress that commonly comes with travel. Thank you again.
