We moved to St. Croix 18 years ago from crowded Laguna Beach, CA and would never again consider living any other place. We are both from California and love the ocean. If we had not already found our current home in St. Croix we would be living in this Villa in a heartbeat.

Check-out: 11:00 AM
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
We had some check-in issues, but Teri did a great job taking care of them when she found out. The location is phenomenal: steps away from the beach and easy walking distance to some nice beach bars. Far enough from town to avoid the "town noise" (not that Frederiskted is particularly noisy, it was just very quiet at Teri's property).
Great fun 2nd time visit
We loved our stay at Teri's spot. Second visit and it is great. Amazing views and beautiful water. We stayed upstairs in the studio and it was great.
See you again soon!
Beautiful week right on the beach
Upsides: The apartment is steps from the included beach. The beach is lovely for swimming/snorkeling. Excellent reef immediately in front. We saw an octopus there, as well as myriad tropical fish. We carried most meals down to the patio around the pool, and ate overlooking the ocean. Spectacular. Cruise ship was in town one day, and all the stores opened. Otherwise nice and quiet. A short walk to West End Water Sports, where you can rent kayaks, etc. Great lunch spot there. Sunset dinners in nearby Fredricksted at Sandcastle by the Beach (Hotel/restaurant) were moderately priced and excellent.
To be aware: Steep flight of stairs up to entry. Kitchen somewhat rudimentary. Mini coffee maker, etc. Trundle bed with slight step off in middle. One set of windows looking out over ocean, slightly high/small (not a "picture window"), and metal hurricane shutters reduce light, apartment feels slightly closed in. No nearby place to work out. Excellent gym with daily or weekly access (Beeston Hill Fitness) but 8 miles away.
Overall worked very well for us.
Perfect and beautiful location. Couldn't have been anymore pleased. We fell in love with Frederiksted.
The only 2 suggestions I have is a small television (for late at night) and maybe just a curtain to separate the bathroom area from main area.
It had everything else we needed. It was clean and comfortable, and affordable.
The wifi was spotty, yes. But if you come on vacation and your main concern is wifi, you are missing the point. ; )
The ocean just steps from the house is your very own aquarium. It was the best snorkleing spot we found all week. I saw someone comment that there are sea urchins everywhere in front. And yes, there is. And we had a wonderful time observing them!! There is a place to the right of the house maybe 5ft down that is completely sandy and urchin free if that is a concern.
And the sunsets here. Oh my. We've been to several Caribbean islands and these were more than breathtaking. We are having one of our photos of the sunsets taken at the property framed.
Teri, the owner, is also wonderful. She checked on us via telephone a couple of times and and was there for any questions we had.
Thank you so much for sharing your property with us!
What a wonderful vacation! The apartment was lovely and the beach was perfect. Terri was great and made the process easy.
We had a great time. The apartment was ok. The internet connection was week, but you spend a lot of time outside anytime so that is not big problem. We enjoyed our mornings and evenings on the beach. We explored island and we are definitely coming back. Next time we may rent apartment downstairs.
Spectacular snorkeling just steps from your oceanfront patio, scuba diving for an incredible underwater extravaganza at one of the world's top rated scuba sites just one mile away, unforgettable tropical sunsets
