About Lyn Osborne

I was born and raised on the beautiful island of St. Croix. Since then I have gotten the opportunity to live in a few different places. First the east coast, then South Korea and now finally the southern US where I have made my home. Living on the mainland and now having children of my own made me yearn for my childhood days back on island. So I purchased a tiny bit of paradise so that my family and I can enjoy the sandy shores of home at my leisure! For me there is nothing more important that being able to share the food, sun ,fun and music of my culture with my kids!

Lyn Osborne purchased this condo in 2014

Why Lyn Osborne chose USVI/St. Croix

Stunningly decorated and ground floor beachfront....

What a perfect spot to wake to the sunrise over the Caribbean, relax on the quiet beach and just unwind. Quiet, gated and secure. Steps from a fantastic restaurant, walking distance to the grocery and a short ride into Christiansted town for the eats, shopping and nightlife St. Croix has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

This unit offers ease of access. No stairs to climb and direct beach access from both the unit and pool area. Huge sliding glass doors off the living area and the master provide access to the patio from which you can step right out on to the sandy shores. Full sized washer and dryer in unit with many extras such as coffee, tea, beach towels, snorkeling equipment and the list goes on!

Everything was clean and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

I feel very fortunate to have stayed at our particular condo for 1 week. The only problem we had was a power interruption and that was due to weather, even so it was fixed the next day. Appliances were all modern and worked well. We had a great time.

Family of Four St. Croix Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Spent seven nights at this condo and the only negative is that we had to leave. This place was the perfect spot for myself, husband and our two 13 year olds. The condo itself is beautifully decorated and even had fresh flowers in a vase on our arrival. The rum and well stocked ice in the freezer were also well appreciated. We loved the giant sliding glass doors/patio views and enjoyed breakfast on the patio table overlooking the ocean every morning. The location was perfect for visiting all points of the island. Even after spending hours visiting beaches during the day, our kids appreciated swimming in the pool every evening. The property was a quiet, peaceful place with lots of friendly staff and neighbors. Especially appreciated Junie with Security who showed the kids a giant crab and shared personal stories about the island life. Lyn's communication and hospitality was above and beyond. Our flights were delayed a whole day and she graciously offered us another night if we wanted to extend our vacation. Sadly, we could not take her up on that offer, but we did take the late check out. We would not hesitate to stay here again. It was simply perfect.

Amazing place, perfect location, incredible value!

  • 5 of 5

We've traveled all over - Caribbean islands, Mexico, Hawaii, you name it - and Lyn's place ranks with the best.

UNIT: Newly renovated with everything you could need. Kitchen appliances, cookware, and cooking spices...washer and dryer...air-conditioned bedrooms for sleeping...everything was great. The outdoor balcony was our absolute favorite. A large space with several chairs/tables and directly on the beach with an ocean view that would normally cost you hundreds more (per night!).

PROPERTY: The combination of grassy areas, plants, and beach access gave it the much desired island feel. Nice pool and two large grills that looked new and we used more than once. Friendly neighbors and a soothing environment - no crazy parties here.

LOCATION: Along with being directly on the beach and within walking distance to two beach restaurants/bars (Breezes was excellent, Golden Rail was okay), it has great proximity to several spots on the island. Christiansted is within 5 minutes (check out the boardwalk, surrounding shops, and fort, along with restaurants You Are Here and Angry Nate's). Several other places are a 20-30 minute drive away (our favorites were the Carambola beach, Eat At Cane Bay, La Reine Chicken Shack, Rhythms at Rainbow Beach, and golf at the Buccaneer). Last but not least, you must check out Buck Island via Big Beards or a different tour for one of the best islands and snorkeling in the world.

LYN: I've dealt with several VRBO owners, almost always excellent, but Lyn was the best. Great communication and extremely warm and helpful every step of the way. I highly recommend her and her place for a wonderful visit to St. Croix.
