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.

The Location Makes Up for Some Negatives

  • 4 of 5

This property is a bit run down, with many things that need a good cleaning (the basic level of cleanliness was OK), a coat of paint, and repair. The house is right on the beach, overlooking the Fredericksted harbor, about 1/2 mile from town. The beach is uncrowded most days, with local families and cruise ship folks on weekends. The road is very close & noisy esp. on weekends. If you are older, overweight, or have any problem getting around I do not recommend this property. The "stairs" leading upstairs are steep and narrow with a rickety railing. The gate and steps leading to the beach are broken and difficult. Do not count on communicating or catching up with work via the Internet as the WiFi signal is weak and unreliable. Cell phone service is AT&T only - Verizon roaming costs $1.99/min. Sleeping arrangements & bathroom access are only practical for two people. The price is right for those with a sense of adventure and who don't mind a challenge. Theresa the owner was friendly and helpful. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Lovely beach location

  • 5 of 5

After a less than ideal experience the first night we arrived at another VRBO rental, we lucked into this place. The first thing is the location. It is RIGHT on the beach, a short walk from a couple of lovely beach restaurant/bars and from town. The beach is barely ever occupied, so we had it pretty much to ourselves. Watched the sunset from the water every evening. The place is very quiet other than the sound of the waves and the occasional car passing. It is well maintained with everything we needed, a nice sized kitchen and living room area on the main floor, a climb up a steep ladder/stair to the second floor with the very comfortable pair of twin beds made up as a king bed and a large bathroom. Everything worked well except the wifi, which was sporadic. Being walking distance from town and restaurants was great. The owner and maintainer were very accessible and responsive and it made for a lovely vacation. Highly recommended, and I hope we can get back there soon!
