About Paul & Rachelle Tomlinson

We are Paul & Rachelle and live in New Baltimore Michigan, north of Detroit. Paul is the owner of a footwear store. Rachelle is a Supervisor at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. We enjoy traveling, boating, jet skiing, swimming, wine tasting, and cooking.

Paul & Rachelle Tomlinson purchased this condo in 2015

Why Paul & Rachelle Tomlinson chose USVI/St. Croix

We've spent years searching for a desirable location with lots of sunshine & warm weather. We chose St. Croix because of the beautiful tropical climate of 80 + degrees year round, fabulous assortment of uncrowded crystal clear water beaches with natural settings, less developed island landscape, and relaxed stress free life style. We traveled to many carribean locations, but St. Croix was a unique experience for us.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with Schooner Bay & the Christiansted area because of its close location to everything. Our condo has amazing harbor & ocean views - day and night from every room, including the master shower. We LOVE stepping right out our door to enjoy the private palm tree lined tropical oasis outside living area with water views. Our end unit provides the convenience of being right next to the crystal clear clean pool so we can jump in and cool off all day & night. We LOVE being able to walk to several restaurants & bars including No Bones, Maria's Cantina, the coffee bistro, Miriam's, Seaside Market, Sharkey's and the Downtown Christiansted boardwalk restaurants, bars, shops, & art galleries.

Spacious and clean with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in this condo. The owners were very nice and very accommodating. The condo is filled with everything you need, and the manager made sure the condo was clean and showed us around. The view is absolutely fantastic! It's in a good neighborhood and there are many excellent restaurants and beaches near by. This was the best place we've rented in St. Croix through VRBO.

Fun in the sun (:

  • 5 of 5

My friend from England met me for a holiday at Paul and Rachelle's condo. Wow, beautiful and very comfortable. The decor is beautiful, the pool is right there and the beds are super comfortable. The condo is filled with every necessity you will need for the perfect vacation-bring clothes and nothing else. Paul and Rachelle make sure every detail of a perfect holiday is taken care for you. We enjoyed several of the local beaches, but fell in love with the beach at Hotel on the Cay-incredible water and killer cocktails. We ate at several of the local establishments-we had coffee and breakfast at the condo which was great. I am a vegan and was able to eat at all of the cafes in town. We loves our stay and could not ask for better host then Paul and Rachelle and we loved loved loved our condo at Gallow's Bay.

The only thing I would have done different was to rent car-we are both walkers but seeing the island by car is a must. We met wonderful people who were kind enough to drive us to the far away beaches. Thank you to Paul and Rachelle for an amazing holiday.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved Paul and Rachelle's condo. It was beautifully decorated with a great view. They had thought of everything you could possibly need. We rented a car and went to some beautiful beachs and did some snorkeling. Mike picked us up at the airport and gave us a grand tour. He was very friendly and went out of his way to accomadate us. I would definitely recommend this condo and St. Croix. We went to the Cruzan distillery and brought back 6 bottles of rum each. By the way, you do not have to pay to check your alcohol on the airlines. The only suggestion that I would make (and this is not a complaint by any means) is to get king size pillows for the king size bed. Which by the way, was very comfortable. Paul and Rachelle were so helpful to send us an abundance of info prior to our trip to help us figure out what we wanted to do. Thanks for your hospitality Paul and Rachelle.

The PERFECT place to stay on St. Croix!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were very fortunate to have the opportunity to stay at Paul and Rachelle's condominium in Christiansted for our first visit to St. Croix. The location of the condominium on Gallows Bay overlooking the spectacular Christiansted Harbor is ideal. It is just minutes to the historic waterfront and downtown shops of Christiansted. The condo itself is lovely and was extremely comfortable for our family of four. We also very much appreciated how Paul and Rachelle and their property manager, Mike, went to great lengths to orient us to St. Croix before our stay. We hope to return as soon as possible! Thank you so much, Paul and Rachelle!

Beautiful condo, Great location, Chill Island, Wonderful Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time in St. Croix. The first two times we stayed at the Palms at Pelican Cove Resort, but this time wanted to stay for two weeks in more of a "home" environment. Staying at Schooner Bay was the perfect place for us.

The condo is beautiful and more than spacious enough for the two of us. Well stocked and appointed from arrival drinks and cooking supplies to beach gear and sunscreen! Mike greeted us at the airport even though we rented a jeep there, and escorted us back to the condo and gave us the tour. He said he was available if we needed him for anything, but we didn't.

There is a beautiful view of Christiansted and the harbor, and the lovely pool is right up a path and a few stairs from the condo entrance. Although there is no beach right at the condo or within close walking distance, there are so many close beaches nearby that you can drive to quickly, pull you car up to the trees lining the beach and sit on the water, usually with the beach to yourself or no more than a dozen others to share with. Our favorite chill beaches were Cheney Beach (5 minutes; you can go in through the resort or drive in directly through the nature preserve) and Rainbow Beach north of Fredericksted (about 30 minutes). The location of the condo is close to town and central on the island, so no destination is more than 30 minutes.

You CAN walk to Christiansted, but it's a good walk and since we had a car we drove. There are a few local restaurants near the condo, some shops and coffee/lunch places. And the Schooner Bay market is in the neighborhood for all your essentials also.

When we arrived, the condo was closed up and had the AC on and was cool. We immediately turned off the AC, opened all the windows and left it that way for the two weeks. It's not the breeziest location on the island, but there is still enough of a breeze that with the help of the ceiling fans it stayed comfortable without the AC on.

We HIGHLY recommend this condo. Two very small issues to mention, though neither are in the control of the owners and would in no way keep us from staying again: 1) from mid-afternoon on the sun does come in the sun porch directly, making it hot to sit, but we enjoyed our breakfasts out there and could use it until mid-afternoon; 2) the condo sits 100-200 yards above a working harbor. With the AC off and windows open it can be a little noisy at times.

All in all, a WONDERFUL two weeks!!!

Owner's Response: David, thank you so much for your wonderful review. We know you have been to St. Croix several times in the past, and other islands also. we are truly thrilled you enjoyed the special things Heaven and Earth, Schooner Bay, and the island has to offer (Special place isn't it.) The highlights of you review are exactly why we purchased at Schooners Bay, and is always home to us. We are honored you could share this with us. See you at "HOME" the next time you come down. Mike Rachelle and Paul
