Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom sleeps 4 newly renovated luxury condo w/stunning view

Enjoy the warm tropical breezes as you sit on your 30 foot gallery (porch) and gaze at the Caribbean. This luxury 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo was totally renovated in 2010. It has everything you need to enjoy a vacation in beautiful St. Croix, with all new stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, washer & dryer, large walk-in shower. There are beautiful travertine tiles throughout & min-split air conditioners & ceiling fans in each room. Each bedroom has a queen size bed. Each bathroom has a beautiful tiled shower. The gallery has brand new teak furniture to relax on as you enjoy the beautiful Caribbean view. The condo is equipped with wifi. It is well stocked with beach towels, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and some snorkel equipment. We also provide soap, shampoo, plenty of sheets and towels, coffee, tea, cooking oil and spices.

There are two pools on the property, and a tennis court. It is a short walk to Gallows Bay, with several restaurants, bank & post office. The town of Christiansted is less than a mile away. It has historic sights, lovely shops, restaurants, and galleries. From town, various snorkeling, diving, fishing, and sightseeing tours are available. There is a beautiful beach in town and many other beaches a short drive away.

Schooner Bay has 62 units. Ours is in the back of the complex. it is in a beautiful spot on a hill that is cooled by tropical breezes. It is quiet and private.

There is a bus that runs from Christiansted to Fredericksted (the town on the other side of the island) Taxies are readily available and there are several car rental businesses.

St. Croix is a wonderful place! The weather is perfect, the water is beautiful, the food is delicious, there's lots to do and the people are so warm and friendly. Everyone you pass on the street greets you with a 'Good morning, good afternoon, or good night' There are also many talented artists with shops and galleries in town and fun, unusual activities like hermit crab races and 'jump ups' (street festivals.)

Lonely planet travel guide named the US Virgin Islands number one in their top ten US travel destinations for 2012.

I would be happy to answer any questions and/or provide more information to make your stay more enjoyable.

About Veronica Rowe

My husband and I live in the Catskill Mountains of New York when we are not in St. Croix. We fell in love with St. Croix on our first visit and bought our condo in 2005. Since then we have enjoyed meeting people there and learning about the island culture and customs. We totally renovated the condo in 2010. It is gorgeous and we know that you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Veronica Rowe purchased this condo in 2005

Why Veronica Rowe chose East End

We loved the property as soon as we saw it. (We had looked at many condos prior to Schooner Bay) We were captivated by the Caribbean view as soon as we walked though the door! The unit is solidly built and the property well maintained. Although attached to the next unit, our condo is set back so as to be private and quiet. The pools were very nice and the landscaping was lovely. Schooner Bay is in a great location (just outside of Christiansted)

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is gorgeous with a fabulous view. Everything is new, comfortable and efficient! We are close to the town of Christiansted as well as many beaches and activities. It is totally relaxing, easy & beautiful!!!!!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife, young son and I stayed here during the month of July for 6 days...it was an absolutely beautiful condo! It was so well stocked, it was staying in your own home. The view was just wonderful, and it's situated on the top of a hill over looking the lush lanscape and the bay. We didn't rent a car, and the walk to Christiansted was about half a mile, which we enjoyed. Staying here really allowed us to experience the island like it should be, very glad we didn't stay at a resort. Every morning and evening walking into the boardwalk area, we were greeted by so many people we almost exhausted from saying good morning to all the smiling people! The restaurants were fantastic and many in walking distance.... the Savant was our favorite! Also if you have some nerve do the 1/2 day Tan Tan rides into the rain forest and Tidal pools, it's an amazing way to see parts of the island you'd never see any other way. We loved Big Beards boat ride to Buck Island for snorkeling...it was just breathtaking. One thing we wished we had done was spend the day at Cane Beach/Bay....we were there for the Tan Tan ride for just a few, and it was just spectacular....Also, I can't say enough about the owner Veronica, she made this trip even better...she knows the great places to see and do, so listen to her! :)

Very good location central to all. Very clean condo. Very high quality furnishings and condo has all the staples you could need. Beach chairs and snorkel gear to use. The owner gave tons of insider info for us to decide what and where to do things. The owner was super attentive when there was one small issue with one of the two beautiful pools, she took care of it timely. Check in and out was smooth and easy. Every one of us was extremely pleased with the condo and hope to come back again and stay here. This is a real value too.

Wonderful condo and host

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this beautiful condo when we came for the Ironman race. It was so close to everything we could easily walk to what we needed. The views are amazing and the property is beautifully decorated. This property has EVERYTHING you could possibly need on a stay. We had our adult kids as well as a 1 year old and needed to cook a lot. The kitchen had everything we needed which was a first on one of our stays (we travel a lot and book through airbnb and homeaway). The host, Veronica, was extremely communicative and provided an abundance of information for our stay which made it easy once we got there. I would definitely stay here again on our next trip to St. Croix!

wonderful getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay at this condo. It is convenient to town, well stocked with everything including snorkel gear, beach chairs, plenty of towels, even a beach umbrella! It is an easy walk to great shops and restaurants and a short drive to fabulous beaches. Despite that, I totally enjoyed sitting in the comfortable lounge chairs enjoying the terrific Caribbean view and the wonderful tropical breezes.

Amazing Property and Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

The owner is very easy to work with, informative and has lots of experience and suggestions of things to see and do during your stay. Entry and exit into the unit was a breeze. As shown in the pictures, the unit was beautiful and clean with every accessory you would need. Beds are comfortable and sheets are soft. Due to the East facing location of this unit, the breeze is fantastic in the afternoons and evenings to keep you cool and the bugs away. The location of the property is ideal for shopping and restaurants that you can walk to. Both pools were very nice with great views. Complex has an on site security officer at night. I would highly recommend this property when visiting St. Croix.

Wonderful condo and location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is lovely! It is very comfortable and has a beautiful updated kitchen and bathrooms. We enjoyed our breakfast every morning sitting out on the gallery enjoying the sunshine and a fabulous view. The condo is centrally located on the island so it is reasonably accessible to lots of activities. It's located within Christensted not far from groceries, restaurants shops, and the boardwalk. We enjoyed walking to dinner most evenings. We are very grateful to the owners of this condo for having the use of their vacation home.

Schooner Bay Property ID 556849_March 2016

  • 5 of 5

Unit is well stocked with everything you will need to have a relaxing trip to St. Croix; right down to a set of beach chairs and snorkel gear. The owners' attention to detail is obvious. The unit is plenty spacious for a group of 3 or 4 to feel at home. The washer and dryer in unit made it easy to pack light. The Schooner Bay Condos are just a short drive (or walk) from the boardwalk.
