My Wife and I visited recently with our four adult daughters and the home was great. The large home is well laid out and very comfortable. We often cook as a family and there is plenty of room in the kitchen for multiple cooks. We had never been to St Croix before and we are always concerned about safety when visiting the Caribbean but Alex's home is in a great location in a gated community and at no time did we ever feel unsafe. The home is in great location to explore the Island during the day and come home to your own private retreat at night. We explored many beaches on the island but our favorite was at the Carambola beach resort that was included in our stay. We did have a issue with a newer Refrigerator on Easter Sunday and the property manager had a replacement unit available the very next day. Problems are always going to arise but it is how they are handled that counts and they did a wonderful job. Also we really loved St Croix and we are already planning a return trip.
This is the perfect home for vacation. It had everything you will need for vacation and more. Clean, roomy and very quiet will recommend to others. I give this home five stars cause its the most it would allow.
We spent our family spring break vacation at the Carambola house. We had an excellent time. This beautiful home is in a great location on the island, offered great amenities, and was excellent for kids.
We will definitely be returning soon for our next family vacation!!
We had a group of 4 couples. The house and the grounds were spacious and luxurious. We had plenty of space for alone time and plenty of choices for gatherings. We look forward to returning again.
On my recent mini vacation to St.Croix, I stayed 3 nights in this beautiful home. The scenery was amazing and the home was well prepared. I suggest anybody wanting to maximize their Cruzan experience consider renting this home. You won't be disappointed.
This house is very spacious and tranquil. With amazing views over looking the hills and the ocean. We stayed for a week and really didn't want to leave.
We have rented many times before, but this house really makes you feel at home.
I highly recommend this rental to anyone that is looking for a great house for vacation. It's in a great save neighborhood, very close to the airport and many great beaches.
