Views & great for multiple couples / friends

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for new year's. The views here are phenomenal and you really feel like you are hovering over the ocean. The house is perfect for a group of couples traveling together or families. Each couple has their own bedroom and bathroom. House has a great "open air feeling" with lots of doors and windows to access views and breezes. The house has lots of privacy and is nestled down the hill from the Contessa but secluded and distanced from the mansion. We traveled with 4 couples and this house could not have been more perfect with lots of privacy for each couple and large common areas for afternoon and evening socializing. We rented 2 cars and easily moved about the island to attractions, snorkeling and provisions. Great restaurants nearby as well as the Divi resort and casino (spa and recreation launches). We leveraged the resort for group transportation to Frederiksted for Carnival and for renting snorkeling gear. We utilized the spa there on several occasions and highly recommend booking a massage there with their qualified CMT's. A large outdoor patio on the house opens to the indoor living room to create an enormous outdoor/indoor living space that can easily convert back to separate space simply by closing the doors. This house had everything we needed and all desires were met. we left feeling refreshed and great memories of this magical place!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the great review and the kind words. We also travel with four couples and are always looking for such a property that offers four bedrooms each with their own bath. It sounded like such fun, we wish we were there with you. Thanks also for the great tip on the Carnival services and other activities. We hope you will consider us again sometime. Thank you again.

We had a great stay at the Crucian Hacienda. The property was well maintained and clean. We had a group of 8 adults (4 couples). Each bedroom had its own in suite bathroom, so there was good privacy for each couple. One couple did comment that they would have liked a door separating the bathroom from the bedroom. All the beds were comfortable except for the master bedroom. It has a very firm mattress, but this was okay for one couple. The kitchen was large and very functional, though we did not do much cooking. The living room was adequately sized and opened up to the best feature of the property.. the covered patio. We spent most of our time out there enjoying the ocean breeze. The furniture was comfortable for the patio, more so than the living room furniture. The view from the property is wonderful. The pool area was perfect for us, and overall the temperature of the pool was fine.. a little cool in the evening perhaps. The a/c units worked great when we used them, which was mostly at night. There was enough hot water for showers. The cell phone service was a little spotty at times, but the internet worked pretty.. with 8 adults trying to use it at the same time, we did cause some slow down. Power went out once on us, but the emergency generator kicked right on. There is a bit more driving involved when u stay at this end of the island, but for us it was not an issue. One tank of gas for the whole week was all we used in the rental. The property manager was great. Met us at the airport and led the way to the property, pointing out spots to shop, eat and relax along the way. Our flight arrived earlier than usual check in time, but we were accommodated and allowed to arrive at the property earlier. Overall, this was one of our best vacations. I highly recommend the property for a group such as ours or a family. It felt very private and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dana for your wonderful review. We appreciate all of the thorough input which could be helpful to those trying to make a choice on which home to choose. We agree with you on the living room furniture and are in the process of replacing the cushions. We also realize the remoteness of the home makes for spotty phone and internet but hopefully makes up for it in the serenity it offers. I'm glad it was not to much of an inconvenience. Remember, if you choose to return to the island, we offer a 15% discount for all return renters. Thanks again for choosing our home.

Relaxing and So Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Crucian Hacienda - what a wonderful place to stay! My husband and I truly enjoyed this house and have already recommended this home to several of our friends. The Panoramic views can not be beat. Sunrises were so pretty and sitting outside looking at the stars at night made this vacation truly memorable. The property is kept up nicely and house layout is perfect for a large group of people. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything needed for cooking. It was so appreciated that the property manager met us at the airport and made sure we made it to the property. Driving in St Croix was challenging and we did get lost a couple of times but this did not deter us from wanting to come back again!! Loved the location of where the house is located on the island - it felt secluded and offered the privacy we were looking for. The owners were very easy to communicate with and very responsive!

Winter Family Get-away

  • 5 of 5

Our whole group had a great time at Crucian Hacienda at Carina Bay. Dan, the property manager, was great to work with. He met us at the airport, even though it was late. He made sure we all got to the property okay and gave us a quick overview of the place.

Each bedroom having a private bathroom was really nice. The overall layout allows for private space as well as shared space. The pool and veranda were very popular. As another review mentioned, the interior lighting for the living room was rather dark. Though we didn't spend a lot of our time inside! The dining table outside only offers six chairs so it was not easy for the eight of use to dine together. A couple of us had to sit in the outside living room space. Not a huge deal, though; we made it work.

The views from the property are outstanding. My husband enjoyed many a morning walk around the neighborhood exploring. Our group of eight had two cars so that we could do our own thing. We enjoyed exploring your island and even went up to Point Udall for the sunrise.

I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for making our January one to remember.

Owner's Response: Terri, thank you so much for choosing our home and also for the great review. We truly appreciate the constructive criticisms with regards to the internal lighting and the outdoor dinning table seating. We will get on that right away. We had hoped that new bulbs and a thorough cleaning would have been adequate but, no doubt, new lighting of some type may be necessary, along with a couple more chairs for the table. If you decide to come back to the island, we do offer a 15% discount on return renters. Thanks again for choosing our home and your kind comments.

What an amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

Crucian Hacienda at Carina Bay was hands down a perfect fit for our party. The house is well kept and a great location to the Divi Resort, Casino, and Jack and Issacs Bay. Our experience was one for the books. The veranda and pool (despite being a tad to cold to swim in December) were in constant use and definitely our favorite part of the house. We definitely plan to visit again.

Amazing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our whole experience at Crucian Hacienda at Carina Bay was top notch. What a gorgeous house with even more incredible views!!

The bedrooms were all very comfortable, it was nice that we each had our own bathroom. Due to a few windy rainstorms, we did have to utilize the living room area more than once. Our one and only complaint there is a lack of lighting inside. A table lamp or standing lamp in the living room would have helped. The kitchen was fully equipped, and we loved having the use of two refrigerators. The lighting was a factor, once again, in the kitchen. Possibly the use of higher wattage bulbs in the hanging lights would have helped. We know that energy is trying to be saved, but it was difficult to read/cook with our 'old' eyes. Thank you for the welcome bottle of Cruzan Rum.

We spent our Christmas week with family enjoying the views and weather. Though a a little windy at times, the air was always warm. We were looking for a relaxed, non-commercial holiday and we got just that. All our activities were comprised of hiking, swimming, a boat snorkel cruise, and a trip to Cruzan Rum for some tastings. We didn't have any trouble getting use to driving on the 'wrong' side of the road. The roads were narrow and quite twisty in places, but fairly pot-hole free.

Your house and island are true paradise. Because of our flight troubles, we thank you for allowing us to arrive early. We also would like to thank Dan for all his help in guiding us from the airport and for the extra pick-up at Duggan's.

We thank you for sharing your house with us.
