What a view!

  • 5 of 5

We watched the sun rise and set each day with no obstacles to our view! Amazing verandah - lots of space in condo and nice-size d bedrooms. The owner is very responsive to any needs you may have. Location is great - you can walk to town and back though the traffic is a bit dangerous and I wouldn't recommend walking in the dark. Big kitchen and full-size appliances. We also felt like we had our own private beach! It's a great find!

Personal Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our time at Barefoot Beach House was absolutely amazingly....from our first communication with the owners to our departure! The location is perfect and has everything you need to stay and relax or seek out an adventure. We traveled with my parents and children (ages ranging from 3 - 63). The kids had a blast playing in the sand and water right outside the front door. The water was calm enough for them to play without being constantly knocked over. The house was stocked with everything you need and more. The biggest problem we had was making ourselves leave our personal paradise. We had great snorkeling right outside our door and were within walking distance of the local beach bar (Rythm's). Thank you Doug and Sherri for sharing your wonderful home with us!

Amazing location and wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beachfront property for our annual getaway in May 2014. First of all, the owners were really wonderful people. Before we arrived, when Doug learned that I have 2 young children, he promised to make the lanai safer for the kids by reducing the gap between the logs, so no one could slip. When we arrive they were still in their house downstairs, they were very friendly and checked on us for the next 2 days before they had to leave back to the mainland. My wife injured her foot, stepping on a sea urchin, they were very helpful calling one of their friends who assured them that it wasn't poisonous.

The location was amazing, right on the beach. Very clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable. The bedrooms had ceiling fans, which while opening the windows brought a very nice breeze all night long. The lanai was spacious with a magnificent view.

We travel a lot, and this was one of the best vacations we had. We will definitely visit St. Croix again and hope to find this property available when we decide to do so.

Living the island dream!

  • 5 of 5

Our travel group had an awesome week at the Barefoot Beach House! Two members of our group had never been to the Caribbean before, so this was a great introduction to "island life" for them. We enjoyed snorkeling off the beach every day, and were thrilled to see 2 sea turtles, as well as many species of fish.We enjoyed long morning walks on the beach hunting for sea glass and taking in the scenery. The beaches of the West are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen...even when we had planned on 'just a walk', we would often end up unable to resist taking a swim at some newly found gem! Doug and Sheri are gracious hosts, and have thought of everything you'll need for a great experience, from the welcome basket to an ample supply of sunscreen. The neighbors are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. There is much to do on St. Croix, but we found ourselves spending most of our time right here enjoying our "private" paradise! Whether listening to the waves on the beach, enjoying the azure water, or just hanging out on the deck; it doesn't get any better than this! We are already missing this beautiful place, and cannot wait to return! Thank You to Doug and Sheri, for letting us live the island dream!

Perfect retreat on the island's most beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had two wonderful weeks at the Barefoot Beach House and would recommend it to anyone! We traveled with our two daughters, ages 7 and 10, and our mother-in-law who joined us for a few days and stayed in the apartment on the first floor. The accommodations are spare but spotlessly clean and perfectly comfortable for an island vacation.

First of all, the location cannot be beat. The beach is quiet and the water is crystal clear. We snorkeled every day (thanks to equipment at the house - a huge bonus!) and saw all sorts of ocean life, including sea turtles. We hunted for sea glass every morning and enjoyed amazing sunsets every night. Whenever we asked locals which beach they'd recommend, they always said the beaches in Frederiksted were the best, and they were right!

Rainbow Beach (and Rhythms, a local bar/restaurant) is a few hundred yards away, offering some fun, social atmosphere when you're in the mood, but it was never loud or intrusive. Even though people occasionally walked by, everyone was friendly and far from a nuisance. We really felt like we had our own private beach.

The town of Frederiksted (minutes away by car) was pretty sleepy in August, but we found lots to do regardless. We jumped off the pier, ate at local restaurants (DEFINITELY recommend Turtle's Deli!), toured Fort Frederik, and took in the beautiful colonial architecture. A cruise ship came in one day, and we loved how everything "came alive" with musicians, vendors, and tourists aplenty. Still, we were happy to have our quiet Frederiksted back once the ship departed. :)

We rented a jeep and traveled all over the island and took advantage of everything St. Croix had to offer, but we were always so grateful to return to easily the most beautiful spot -- our own beach in Frederiksted!

Doug and Sheri were very easy to work with. They were quick to respond to any emails we sent before and during our stay. They made sure the house was clean and well appointed with everything we needed to be comfortable during our trip. We're already missing Charlie the sea turtle and the view from the deck!
