About the Property
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Gayle's Haven is a 1st floor, 1200 sqft, 1 bed, 1 bath, situated on a picture-perfect-white-sand beach with amazing views of sea and sunsets from your kitchen, bedroom & private veranda. It is located on one of the prettiest beaches on St. Croix, minutes from downtown Frederiksted. The condo is well appointed with cable and wifi, beach towels, beach chairs and cooler; and the fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook, prepare frozen concoctions and dine at home. This is a private rental done right…

*If you're looking for seclusion, the community has a pool, secure beach entry, and gazebo with BBQ and hammock.
*If you want to get out, you are a walk away from a 5 star, beachfront restaurant, and a 5 minute drive from downtown Frederiksted and some fantastic beach bar/restaurant options.
*1 King Bed
*Bath and Beach towels
*The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook, drink frozen concoctions and dine at home.
*Cable television and WIFI
*Beautiful view of the Frederiksted pier
*Picture-perfect Caribbean sunsets
Our rates and fees include a thorough and professional pre-cleaning as well as complimentary "arrival service". Someone will meet you at the airport, help transport luggage, and lead you to your lodging. Once there, they'll orient you with the grounds and condo.
A rental car is strongly recommended for getting around the island, but it is possible to get around downtown Frederiksted with a bike rental from Freedom City Cycles.
*For car rentals we suggest Centerline, Avis, Hertz or Budget (they conveniently have airport pickup locations). *Avis often has great coupons online and discounts for USAA members, ADP Payroll participants and Costco Members. *Taxi service is available but can be difficult to obtain, especially at night.
*Romantic September- If you're looking for an exclusive feel for a romantic getaway, September is the time to do it, *and* you'll save on rental costs... The island is quiet in September- there are historically less tourists so some (not all) touristy places and restaurants close; but the beach is still open and the ocean temps are luxuriously like bath water.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: I am from St. Croix (a Crucian) and I live in Colorado full time. We bought this little piece of St. Croix for my mother, who sadly passed away in 2015. Gayle loved her retreat at Harbour Beach Village, and we believe you will too. We hope our guests will have fun, do a lot of relaxing and enjoy our family haven for a little while.
Why the Owner Chose Southwest, St. Croix, USVI:
Enjoy the comforts of home while vacationing! We've set up Gayle's Haven as a home and not a hotel. All you need is your clothes and toiletries and you're ready for a relaxing vacation with delicious sea breezes and the sounds of the ocean. Rentals for snorkeling, scuba, ocean kayaking and more are available in nearby Frederiksted (5-10 minute drive). If you're struggling to pick which side of the island to stay, check out my insider scoop, "Which side of the island." You'll find the link below.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The beach: Frederiksted has the most beautiful beaches on St. Croix. White sand, no seaweed, and Caribbean blue-green waters. It is picture perfect. The Owner: As a local, JoAnn knows St. Croix and can help you figure out your vacation. As a full-time Colorado resident for the last decade+, JoAnn is accustomed to stellar customer service and continuously strives to offer better/new options for her guests.
