About Home Sweet Home

My husband and I moved to St Croix in 2005 right out of college with a few duffel bags and a hope to find paradise. We found the beautiful island to have a special feel to it and Instantly fell in love. After a few years on the island, we got engaged and married on a beautiful full moon, winter night. Our first "home" on island was a unit a few doors down from our unit now. We loved the location, area and amazing view so much that we decided to purchase in that complex. We currently live In Atlanta, Georgia and our amazing property manager, Carissa, takes wonderful care of our home and our guests.

Home Sweet Home purchased this condo in 2006

Why Home Sweet Home chose Estate La Grande Princess

This condo has been our home away from home for 4 years and we lived there permanently for 4 years. We had many great times with friends and family at this condo and know you will have the same. The view is just amazing with the fresh ocean air blowing through the condo. You can walk right out on the grass and be mesmerized by the full moons, whales splashing in the ocean and the twinkling lights from Christiansted.

What makes this condo unique

The Central Location and amazing views from the condo and bedroom is what made us fall in love with our condo. We feel that you will feel the same. We offer free watersports activities with the rental of the condo.

Bella Vista was great. It had a security gate that gave a good impression of security in the area. Carissa, the manager, met us in the airport and made the arrival very easy, she's an angel. She was very professional, communicative and made the process of arriving easy and painless. She even guided us to the grocery and done a welcome with wine and cold drinks. The condo was clean and very comfy. The furniture was clean and modern. There is a fantastic view from the terrasse and everything around the condo is very relaxing and quiet. The air conditioning system helps you to cool down in the heat. The condo is located perfect to explore the island close to Christiansted and great beaches. We would certainly stay here again.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything we needed. Great view, location, and service. Carissa was so welcoming and responded quickly to any of our needs. She even met us at the airport and drove us to the grocery store. The condo is located in a gated community with more than enough space for two. We wanted a place with a kitchen and view, so this was perfect. There were plenty of bath and beach towels and in unit laundry. We were within 20 mins to Christiansted, 40 minutes to Frederiksted, and 40 minutes to Point Udall. We were always out and about, so this really fit our needs in terms of having a place to sleep, shower, and eat breakfast. If you are looking for more of a resort type place with beach access and a luxurious pool in your backyard, this is not for you. St. Croix in general is not a resort type place. It has great food, beaches, and people. All the beaches are very accessible with plenty of parking. We have stayed at the Renaissance in Carmabola, its really pretty--and I would recommend you check the property out for a drink, but I do not think its worth it. We met a couple who was staying there this trip and everyday they were at Rainbows beach with us---much better food and lower price too! Also this water was so calm and clear. This is where you can get the jet ski rental too! So I would choose to stay at this Bella Vista anyday and drive to all the beautiful beaches on St. Croix. Will stay here next time we visit :)

Fabulous View - Stress Free Vacation

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost we need to thank Carissa for all her help and thoughtfulness. Driving on the left and on the lookout for the ever elusive street signs, it was a huge help her meeting us at the car rental and taking us to the condo. Not that you can get lost on the island but we certainly gave it several good tries (you really can't get lost....always wound up someplace familiar). The condo had everything we needed, even dumbbells (did have good intentions to use them). Going to the beach was super easy.... carryall, towels, cooler were all at the condo. Did I mention the view??? That's probably what got us talking to a realtor. Always a nice breeze and sitting in the lawn chairs looking at the ocean was the relaxation we were looking for. The complex is a good size but was very, very quiet and everyone exceptionally nice. The condo is centrally located on the north side of the island, easy to get anywhere but tucked away from any human and/or auto traffic. We rented a Jeep soft top from Olympic which was perfect for quick maneuvering on good and the frequent not so good roads. Went to some great restaurants, especially enjoyed Duggan's Reef....hmmmm so good. The only real sticker shock was at the grocery stores. Just don't send your husband into the store without strict instructions....$7.00 for M&Ms?? Again, Carissa, thanks for all of your help, you help make a long awaited vacation a huge success!! Will we be back?...Absolutely!!!

Very comfortable condo with a million dollar view!

  • 5 of 5

Hands down the best place to stay in St Croix. The condo is centrally located with a Million dollar view. The property manager , Carissa was amazing. She was extremely helpful with planning our trip / wedding! She answered any and all questions and had great recommendations on where to go. The condo is very comfortable. The owners have provided lots of beach towels , a beach carry bag, and a coolers. All this things were very convenient to have during our trip. I was also very excited they had a yoga mat as well for us to use. I practice yoga daily but had no room in my suit case for my mat. I knew I could practice without the mat but it was nice to be able to use it during our stay.

Good value; Outstanding Service

  • 4 of 5

This condo is a great value. It is very large, in a gated condo community (staffed with security guards), it was clean and in a great location for exploring the island (a rental car is essential). The condo buildings, like many on the island, are a little on the older side and there are a few dated elements in the condo, but the bathroom has been completely updated and, overall, we found it to be very comfortable. There is a decently comfortable pull-out couch if you are traveling with a child. The kitchen did have a great coffee machine and a good blender and toaster oven. The variety of kitchen utensils and tools were basic, but sufficed. We did take out one night and cooked several meals for ourselves. The view from the condo is gorgeous and our rental included a full day at Rainbow Beach, which was really great--the owner sets you up for a fun and comfortable day at a really nice beach. We liked it so much, we spent a second day there later in the week.

The condo manager was fantastic. Carissa was incredibly accessible, attentive, helpful and friendly. She gave us several good recommendations for restaurants and activities and really went out of her way to make us comfortable. As a property manager, she is excellent and really enhanced our stay. As for St. Croix itself, we loved it. This was our first time to the island and felt there was a nice variety of activities and restaurants and a diverse topography to enjoy. We hope to be back!

Beautiful View of the Coast

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful, quiet get away! I heard a lot of ratings of hotels on the island that were negative because of party noise and rooster noise. The only noise in this place was the crash of the waves and the wind. The pool is excellent but why would you use it when you have the blue waters of the Carribean to swim in. I got stung by a sea urchin and Carissa got several local remedies for me to treat it. She even offered to go to the grocery store to get what I needed. She checked up on me several times after she found I was injured. We arrived to a bottle of wine and champaigne in the fridge as a congrats for my new marriage. She met us at the air port so we did not have to find the place on our own. She sent me places that may not be on trip advisors that the locals eat at and tours that I should not miss. They did not disappoint. The rental came with 30 minutes free jet ski time in the bay as well as beach chairs and an umbrella next to Rhythm's a cool bar and eatery that plays reggae while on the beach. How cool is that? Don't miss a Buck Island tour or the Bio-lumenescent bay tour with Virgin Kayaks. I held a Cone Jelly Fish that lit up electric blue. Gambled at the Casino at Divi Carina and left the Island $500 up. Wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Hello, My Honeymooners! I hope you're still enjoying your honeymoon even though your back on the mainland. :-) Talk about a great story to tell when you got back. Your sea urchin experience is quite a tale to tell about your trip here. I'm so glad it wasn't as serious as it could have been. You guys handled it like pros. I hope you'll be back for more of the good adventures you enjoyed while you were here. Thank you for all your kind words. You two were wonderful to have as our guests. See ya next year for your First Anniversary!! :-)
