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😊👍👍👍👍👍

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.

Amazing. Even better than the pictures. Just incredible.

  • 5 of 5

Crucial Hacienda was just amazing. We cooked a lot, great kitchen, well equipped, beautiful pool, most incredible outdoor seating (where we spent most of our time lounging!). I get the complaint about the master bed (XXtra firm), but a memory foam pad would fix that. Close to the amazing snorkeling beach at Divi Carina (right down the driveway). Dan the property mgr was great! This is a completely perfect rental in a perfect location!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the great review! We always hoped the house would be as enjoyable for others as it is for us. The new comfort pad for the top of the mattress is being delivered as we speak. Thanks for the constructive criticism. We take it seriously and act upon it so that when you consider coming back to the island the house will meet all of your expectations. Thanks again for choosing our home.

Gorgeous East End Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED staying at this home! Great accommodations and even better view. Our mornings were spent on the covered porch drinking coffee and enjoying the beautiful breeze. So thankful for the use of multiple fridges, washer/dryer, coolers, pool toys, and more!

Agree with other reviews that the master bed could use a pad. :-)

Perfect Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 (4 adults and 2 older children). It was the perfect set up for us. The house is beautiful, with plenty of space for everyone. We appreciated being able to check in early and having someone meet us at the airport to drive us to the house. As previously mentioned, the bed in the master is very, very firm. I would recommend a pad to help. And the living room furniture is nice, but could use updating to be more comfortable. It was fabulous to have a full kitchen and laundry. We cooked almost every morning and at least half of the dinners. Lots of spices at the house along with some other staples. Ate outside and enjoyed the view. It is a remote location, but we enjoyed it and had no problem driving where we wanted to. We did spend a day at the Divi which is just down the hill. They were very nice to us and let us use their facilities even though we were not guests. The pizza place there is pretty darn good. Also note, at night/dusk, there must be mosquitoes that come out. I never saw them, but each night I had at least another 3 to 4 bites, even with spraying myself with bug spray. They must even get into the master bedroom as I would get bit just sitting in there relaxing. Others in my group had no bites, but I am prone to being bitten, so they loved me. There are plenty of coolers for the beach, but no beach chairs. Having chairs would be a nice addition. We did not really use the pool much as it was too cold for most of us. The winds were blowing pretty good our entire stay, so it kept it cool around the house. I would definitely recommend this house and would return. The views are to die for!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your helpful review. We agree with everything that you mentioned and will look into a pad on the master bed. Having some portable chairs to take to the beach is a great idea and we should have thought of it first. Also, thanks for reminding everyone about the small mosquitoes that do tend to be prevalent at sun up and sun down. Remember, not only Divi but most other resorts on the island allow for the full use of their facilities to visitors and all beaches are open to the public. If you do return, always remind us that you are a return visitor. We always offer a 15% discount for returners. Thanks again for choosing our home.
