About Teri-owner

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.

Beautiful week right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful location!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

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.

Paradise Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Want a beautiful setting to spend time in paradise? You couldn't ask for more! Comfortable accommodations allow you to watch an incredible sunset on your own patio or deck. Fall asleep listening to the waves lap the shore as the moon glistens across the water. Have morning coffee enjoying the morning breeze. Truly the perfect place to escape, gather your thoughts and renew.

The owner and staff couldn't be more generous or accomadating. The location is far enough away to feel like your on a secluded island yet close enough to enjoy everything St. Croix has to offer. Family friendly, yet even with multiple unit available, private enough for that romantic getaway.

If you're coming to the island, I can't recommend this VRBO enough! I've been here twice in the past 6 month. As far as I'm concerned it's the only option when deciding where to stay! Thank you! 🌴

Nicely Located with a Wonderful View

  • 4 of 5

Our property was beautiful, stepping right out onto the patio with a pool and then the ocean. Our landlord was very nice and the property manager was never too far away and very helpful. This place is a short walk to several great bars and into town. We were lucky that the other condo, located on the same property was vacant for the first 4 days, making it seem as if we had the ocean to ourselves which was awesome. (if you don't plan on renting a car, ask the landlady to have her property manager pick you up, she'll charge you a better rate than the cabs at the airport)

Our only criticism were:

1. No bathroom door to separate the living area from the restroom.

2. The air conditioner was LOUD and not very cold. We did bring this to the property managers attention and it did seem a little better, but still loud.

3. The apartment is located on a busy road used for quarry trucks, which could sometimes be a little distracting.

4. *this has nothing to do with the property but...Sea Urchins live in these waters, know what they look like so you can avoid them. We hear their sting can be very distracting from a nice vacation.

None of our complaints would prevent us from renting this unit again, in fact we're already looking into maybe renting the bigger space with some friends! Hope this helps and happy vacationing!!
