About the Property

2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Beautiful, fully-equipped and recently renovated, two-bedroom, 1700-square-foot, duplex condominium in Saint Croix, the largest and most varied of the US Virgin Islands.

The condominium is in great condition, but the most stunning feature is the unobstructed view from its living room and outside balcony: the town of Christiansted one mile down an undeveloped hillside, waves breaking over the coral reefs offshore, and an expanse of water ranging in color from turquoise to deep blue. Buck Island and its white beaches can be seen to the east, and, on the frequently clear days, so can Saint John and the British Virgin Islands, some 40 miles across the Caribbean to the north. Sailboats bob in the harbor and every hour throughout the day seaplanes can be seen taking off for the 20-minute flight to Saint Thomas.


In addition to a colorful, fully-stocked kitchen, the unit includes a dining room, living room, and half bathroom on the upper floor, and two bedrooms - one of them a very big master with a separate vanity area - two full baths and an open air atrium on the lower level. The unit is perfect for a family of four to six, for two couples (assuming they get along), or for one couple who want a larger-than-usual space to themselves.


But enough from me. Email me and I will send you the evaluations from recent renters. And whether you rent from us or stay someplace else, do try Saint Croix. As a local radio personality says frequently, it is truly 'one of the world's most beautiful islands.'

Questa Verde Condominiums; 1 mile from Christiansted.

Questa Verde Condos are a gated community with a spectacular pool. It's about a mile by the way the crow flies to St. Croix's main town, Christiansted. On a clear day from many units, including ours, you can see St. John and the British Virgin Islands, 40 miles across the Caribbean.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: After selling our apartment in Brooklyn, NY in 2003, we did the next logical thing -- we bought my grandfather’s condo in St. Croix, in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Well, it was logical for me, anyway, having visited him there over many years since I was 18. Melinda had quite a different perspective. At first it was ludicrous, even infuriating to her that our fruitless search for a primary home in New York would be followed by the purchase of a secondary one in the Caribbean. Domestic relations got even worse when she saw the condition of the place; in the last 10 years my grandfather had allowed it to get long in the tooth. deteriorate. For an island where the temperature never goes below 70 degrees, there was suddenly a lot of frost in the air. But thanks to the intervention of a mutual friend named Dianna Huber, who visited us in St. Croix that first year and essentially served as marriage counselor, we got through the troubled times and Melinda eventually warmed to the task of renovating it. Every visitor since says she did a fabulous job. You will too.

Why Christiansted, St. Croix, USVI:
Spacious, 'fun,' and with one of the most picturesque views you'll find anywhere in the Caribbean.
