About the property

Spacious 1 BR / 1 BA condo with amazing view, tropical pool and great breezes

Sea Dreams, a spacious 1 BR / 1 BA beachfront condo, is located on the top floor of the Harbour Beach Village Condominium complex. Our small, private gated community is right on the beach about a mile south of the charming town of Frederiksted and offers amazing views of the Caribbean Sea, a beautiful sandy beach with crystal clear calm water, and the best sunsets on island. Sea Dreams feels very spacious with cathedral ceilings in the living room and bedroom and a large screened in gallery where you will spend most of your time. The bathroom is quite large and has a tub/shower combo and double sinks. Ceiling fans are in every room, with two in the gallery. The bedroom is air-conditioned but with the many windows and consistent easterly breezes it is seldom needed. For those who like to cook, Sea Dreams has a fully equipped kitchen with a UV water purification system for clean fresh water straight from the tap. When chilling around the condo there is Cable TV, WI-FI, and a stereo system, with comfortable seating throughout the living room and gallery.

Harbour Beach Village Condominiums has a large freshwater beachfront pool with plenty of lounge chairs. If you like to grill, there is a covered outdoor pavilion overlooking the sea with a gas BBQ grill, dining table and chairs, and a porch swing for your enjoyment. There are sand chairs adjacent to the pavilion for use on the beach and if you decide to explore other beaches, Sea Dreams has beach chairs, umbrellas and pool noodles for you to take with you. We have recently added two new bicycles to our list of amenities so if you want a little leisurely exercise, or just don't feel like driving, you can easily bike to Frederiksted and the beaches north of town.

If you are seeking a quite and secure, well-equipped, home away from home, on a beautiful tropical sandy beach with fabulous views and calm seas, then Sea Dreams is your destination! Whether you prefer an active vacation full of different excursions every day, or dream of nothing more than lounging the day away on a serene beach with the waves gently lapping at the shore, Sea Dreams will meet your every need!

About James Early

We moved here from Virginia and have lived on the north shore of St. Croix near the Cane Bay since 2005. We love St. Croix and know that you will too!

James Early purchased this condo in 2015

Why James Early chose Estate Two Brothers

The west coast of St. Croix has the prettiest beaches and Harbour Beach Village is located on a beautiful white sand beach. Sandy Point, a National Wildlife Refuge and where the final scene of the Shawshank Redemption was filmed, is just a short walk to the south. The Caribbean Sea waves gently lapping at the shore are so relaxing and the view is fantastic from our little slice of paradise.

What makes this condo unique

Sea Dreams is located on the 3rd floor (no elevators) of this 18 community condominium complex. The cathedral ceilings of the living room and bedroom that are only available on the top floor units create a feeling of openness. The view from our top floor screened in gallery is unrivaled and is the perfect spot to catch the elusive Green Flash at sunset.

Our retirement vacation, March 24 through April 7, 2018

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in the comfortable, serene condo, Sweet Dreams. It was really perfect! After exploring the island each day, we would gratefully return home to the beautiful ocean , thunderous waves, and so many shades of blue. Everything we needed was right there, including the Art Gallery where we spent hours relaxing and marveling at the ocean right at our feet. The sunsets were superb! We both really liked the furnishings, the art collection and were not disappointed, despite the ongoing recovery process on the island. Jim was right; all our concerns ahead of time were not actualized. The island is special and so are the people who were consistently warm and friendly. We are strongly recommending Sea Dreams to our friends and to future vacationers. Jim, we appreciate all you did for us, including the search for a medical supply item we needed. Thank you, Nancy and Mark Foster

Amazing Place to Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous week at Sea Dreams in St Croix for our 30th anniversary! Owner/Jim did a great job in keeping us updated as hurricane damage progressed and offered helpful info about the island. So glad we kept our plans and discovered this incredible place! The condo was spacious and well appointed with EVERYTHING you could need to enjoy your Caribbean dream vacation. The view of the sea can be seen as you walk in the door and from every room (I’ve never seen water that many shades of blue!) and the snokeling directly in front of the condo was some of the best on the island. If you are headed to St Croix I highly recommend your checking out Sea Dreams. We will be back! Thanks, Jiim, for sharing this wonderful place with us and for your help and hospitality before and during our amazing vacation!

Amazing! Would book again in a heartbeat.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Sea Dreams. Jim couldn’t have been more kind or thorough in orienting us to his condo. The view when you first walk in is breathtaking. The condo is beautifully furnished and has every convenience. The bedroom is air-conditioned, has an exceptionally comfortable mattress, and the same gorgeous views of the water.

It’s quiet yet accessible to town. The complex has a pool, outdoor grill, and hammock. In Jim’s secure storage area are beach chairs, pool noodles, bikes, and a washer and dryer.

St Croix is open for business!! We especially loved diving with N2theBlue, but if you prefer staying close to the surface, there’s awesome snorkeling right outside the door.

We look forward to returning; Sea Dreams exceeded our expectations.

Thanks, Jim, for everything...including sharing the Diet Cokes from your private stash.

Owner's Response: I am thankful that Sea Dreams and St. Croix met your expectations and you enjoyed your vacation! You and Tom are always welcome back and I will make sure there are a few Diet Cokes waiting in the fridge to go along with the welcome bottle of rum on the kitchen counter.

Spacious Aerie with Picture Perfect Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Located about a half mile south of Fredericksted and fronting an expanse of the Caribbean, Sea Dreams is a spacious third floor condo with an open air or screened in lounge perfect for viewing dramatic sunsets. The large, air-conditioned bedroom and the big living room benefit from being on the top floor with exposed wooden trussing making for very high ceilings. The king size bed is extra comfy with loads of pillows; convenient side tables and seating in front of the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the sea add more charm. Spacious functional bathroom with double sinks and a very good tub and shower. The kitchen is well-equipped and a cinch to cook in with all sorts of small appliances--coffee maker, blender, you name it--and loads of pots, pans, cutlery, dish towels, etc.

Jim, the affable owner, exhibits sincere concern in making your stay enjoyable and worry free, meeting you at the airport to escort you to the property and giving the grand tour. He checks in unobtrusively via texting during your stay to ensure the condo is meeting your expectations. For example, he went out of his way to hook up temporary cable service when the island provider had not yet reconnected some four months after Hurricane Maria. All in all, Sea Dreams provides roomy, gracious and restful lodgings with an attentive caretaker and a picture perfect view.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Bob, for taking a chance on both Sea Dreams and St. Croix following Hurricane Maria's unwelcome visit. As you discovered, St. Croix has rebounded well and is ready to provide visitors with a fabulous vacation experience. I hope you return before long to continue your excellent island restaurant reviews!

Beautiful and amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We were skeptical about coming in December due to the hurricane damages but I am sure glad we did. James was very up front and honest about power being delivered by a generator and that the shore line and beach area was not the same. I very much appreciated his feedback and our time at Sea Dreams was still very special and worth the stay. Sea Dreams is a beautiful condo located right on the beach. The views from this condo are breath taking and everything you need you have at your finger tips. He even has two bikes that we rode in town and this was really nice. I highly recommend this condo and do not let the bad reviews from the hurricane scare you away from this booking. I cannot tell you the last time we saw more beautiful sun sets and had a better seat than what we did in Sea Dreams. Thank you Jim for all you did in making our vacation special. Randy and Savannah Brunnemann

Owner's Response: I am glad you and Savannah enjoyed your stay at Sea Dreams! We finally got utility company power back this past week along with a significant increase in the beach sand, so things are definitely moving in the right direction! Thanks again for taking a chance on a post hurricane stay at Sea Dreams and I hope to see you again on island before long.

Awesome place to stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know what to say, everything was perfect!!! Beautiful and amazing place!! The beach is peaceful,clean and very private. Waves are very calm on this side of the island. Great place for snorkeling. Many fish. Saw a small octopus 30 ft out in the ocean. Hurricane Irma did come by but did not damage anything. Owners are amazing. They go out of their way to make sure you are happy. Everything you need is at the condo. If you do not enjoy your stay , you might need medical help. Haha. Great place to stay!!!

Owner's Response: You two certainly had an extraordinary STX experience and I am really glad you were able to get back home before Maria paid us a visit. Having the ability to handle anything mother nature can throw at you while enjoying a pain killer shows that you are truly Crucian ready! I hope you give St. Croix another chance before long and look forward to seeing you again under better circumstances.

Sea Dreams is located at the Harbour Beach Village Condominium complex just south of Frederiksted on St. Croix. Sea Dreams beach is one of the prettiest on St. Croix. Beaches on the west end of the island typically have calmer water due to being on the leeward side of the island.

The town of Frederiksted was established in 1751 and it is the second largest town on St. Croix. It was originally protected by Fort Frederik, which dates back to 1700. Today, the fort houses a museum. Frederiksted is often referred to by locals as "Freedom City" because it and the fort is the site where then Governor General Peter Van Scholten read the proclamation abolishing slavery in 1848.

Frederiksted is home to one of two deep water ports on St. Croix and is the sole port for cruise ships visiting the island. Passengers disembark at the Frederiksted Pier, where they may explore the town, enjoy the beaches, rent a car, or catch a waiting taxi that will take them to other points of interest on St. Croix.

The Frederiksted Pier and the west end reefs offer scuba diving and snorkeling in calm waters and many expansive beaches. Adjacent to the pier are several restaurants and beach bars such as The Blue Moon, Rhythms at Rainbow Beach, Freedom City Bar & Grill, Sandcastle Beachside Café, Paradise St. Croix, Coconuts, and Polly's at the Pier . There are several water sports companies - N2theBlue Scuba Diving, Freedom City Surf Shop, SCUBA and West End Water Sports. Retail shopping is somewhat limited but opens and livens up when a ship comes to port.

Sunset Jazz is featured every third Friday of the month on the waterfront in Frederiksted, from 6:00 to 9:00. Admission is free as this is a community sponsored event featuring local food and drinks.

Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge One of the top beaches in the US Virgin Islands and is the location for the last scene from the movie Shawshank Redemption. Sandy Point is just down the beach to the south of Sea Dreams.
