About the property

Ocean View And Breezes, Quiet 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Private Space On 1 Acre

Our quiet haven is located in a residential neighborhood on a 1 acre parcel with a sea view. It is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath private space on it's own level with lots of windows creating a light and airy atmosphere and a spacious covered front porch with outdoor furniture for your relaxing and al fresco dining pleasure. It provides privacy and serenity with beautiful sea views, views of the rolling green hills and sea breezes in America's tropical paradise and overlooks the St. Croix Yacht Club. It is St. Croix's east end living at its finest. No shared Condominium walls!! There is a view of the castle and we are very close to many beaches, (5 minutes from 2 wonderful beaches) 2 minutes from the closest golf course, The Divi Casino and Point Udall. You will find we have provided many amenities, including wifi, a writing table, satellite TV, microwave, coffee maker, new stainless steel refrigerator with ice maker, and even a blender. The haven is a part of our home on it's own separate level with its own private entrance, offering complete privacy. Your initial access is extremely easy, you will be provided with the combination to the easy to locate and well lit lock box to retrieve your keys. And we now, as of March 2016, have a newly paved road for smooth access.

There are so many interesting and fun things to do here on St. Croix. That makes it incredibly hard to pick. I am happy to help you decide how you would like to spend your time here.

You may pay with confidence, we use the safe and secure Home Away/VRBO booking system.

About Sarah Bucknell

We bought the lot where our home and apartment sit in 2006. We were sailing the world on our 44' sailboat and in Thailand. In 2011 we sailed into Christiansted Harbor and put the boat on the market, it sold and we built the house! It took 10 months, we have lived here since August of 2012. We love it!! We would love to talk to you about your visit, send us an email and we can set up a time for a chat.

Sarah Bucknell purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Sarah Bucknell chose East End

We love the view from our home and it's proximity to beaches, the yacht club and nice restaurants. We had been coming to St. Croix since 1997 on our sailboat and knew we would live here one day after our boating life adventure.

What makes this apartment unique

Fun for birdwatchers, our property is located on a skinny part of the island, it is a great joy to watch the many Pelicans and Frigate Birds flying over head to get to the other side. We see many hawks hunting in the valley just below us. We can hear the ocean and feel the sea breeze in our beautiful spot.

Sarah and GB have a stunning property in the rolling hills out east. Their hospitality is unmatched!

  • 5 of 5

Sarah and GB's property is perfect! I've stayed in several places on the island, and this one was my favorite. You can shoot out to Udall for sunrise and snorkeling at Isaac's Bay in 10 minutes. You can wake up each morning and enjoy coffee with a breeze you won't find unless you're in the hills. It was a short drive from Christiansted with several places to eat on the way.

Sarah and GB make you feel at home in paradise. Their home clean and looks like it belongs on a St. Croix postcard. The two of them know the island well and are happy to give you advice when needed. I look forward to staying with them again.

5 stars indeed!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely setting and apartment. It was just right the right size for the two of us. Sarah and GB were most helpful too. We would recommend this property to anyone - especially if they like peace and quiet. The balcony was a plus - kitchen and bedroom most ample - bed most comfortable - coolers, beach towels available. Thank you!

Great view and tranquility

  • 4 of 5

I found everything that I read about this property previously to be accurate. It is very clean, quiet and well appointed. Though there is no washing machine we washed and hung clothes and the plentiful supply of beach towels on the provided line. The barbecue worked great. There are 3 eating out choices within 2 miles. The weather was breezy which kept us from getting uncomfortable along with the ceiling fans. They had coolers, beach chairs and were great with directions and information. The only caveat I have is with the destination. Really no place to run or walk long distances safely because of the infrastructure of the island. So if you are a triathlete this is not a training paradise..but you can work on your swim in lots of different parts of the islands. Rent a jeep though as the roads are a little rough.

Fantastic and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described and the hosts Sarah and GB were awesome. The apartment is up on a hill with an awesome view of the Atlantic, the yacht club, and Buck Island. Wonderful stay.

Christmas in St Croix 2016

  • 4 of 5

We love St. Croix and the east end. We have spent many years going there. This year we stayed for 17 days with Sarah and GB at there lovely home. It was a well furnished, cute apartment under the main house. Sarah and GB were great hosts, very personable and a wealth of information about the island. The views are great and close to many beaches. The only thing that would make it better is having laundry facitilties. We stayed 17 nights and it would have been nice to be able to wash and dry towels and sheets, but it won't deter us from staying there another time we visit beautiful St. Croix.
