First off, I want to say that we are blessed to have been spared by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. our place is now vacation ready so pack your bags and enjoy some St. Croix sunshine and turquoise waters!
Welcome to Paradise at The Reef! Our condo is situated in a secure and gated, masterpiece villa complex on the East end of the island. You will enjoy privacy, awesome trade wind breezes and, of course, fabulous views. We have made special efforts to put beach charm and character into our home to get that true "island living" feel. The condo is fully appointed with stylish furnishings and decor, 1 loft-style master bedroom with comfortable, queen sized bed, upgraded linens, updated en suite master bathroom facilities, window ac unit, (works terrific). The downstairs bedroom has a nice, comfy, single daybed. There is a full sized, side by side washer and dryer housed in this room as well for laundry convenience. A half bath is located downstairs. The living room is spacious with plenty of seating and has a couch with a lounger section that can easily sleep an extra person. There is also a very comfortable, queen size insta-bed available for extra sleeping needs that can be set up in the living room. The condo has ceiling fans and other fans located in all of the rooms. As you prepare your meals, enjoy the Caribbean views in this fully updated and open kitchen featuring granite counter tops and modern, self closing cabinets. It is completely equipped with everything you need to cook and dine, stainless steel appliances, full size, french door style refrigerator, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, small appliances, breakfast bar with sea grass bar stools for indoor dining. All the comforts of home can be found here to include a big screen TV downstairs and flat screen upstairs in master bedroom. Dish satellite and internet/Wi-fi service are available in the condo.
Open up the windows and enjoy the tropical breezes. The windows come with screens attached to the shutters so if you are concerned about mosquitoes, keep the windows closed and crank open the shutters for views and breezes. There are also screen doors on the front and back of the condo which allows you to leave the solid front and back doors open for cross breezes. Relax on the large, recently painted patio with your favorite beverage while taking in the breathtaking views of the Caribbean and Buck Island. Nice outdoor patio table/chairs with over-sized umbrella for dining "al fresco" . Enjoy the sites and sounds of the sugar birds and hummingbirds while having your morning coffee. To attract the sugar birds, lay out a bowl of sugar for them and they will come flocking. The onsite amenities include a gorgeous swimming pool with pavilion overlooking the Caribbean, a 9 hole golf course and tennis courts (under construction since Hurricane Maria). For fun in the sun, the beach is directly across the road from the resort. Though Maria took a toll on our beach and Duggan's Restaurant, our maintenance crew is working hard to bring the beach back to its former beauty with better improvements to the Reef beach. Duggan's Restaurant is being rebuilt with plans to open by March or April 2018. Once re-opened, enjoy an exquisite meal or relax at the bar in this open-air, beachfront restaurant. There is also TLC Sandwich Shop on the premises located next to the Golf Pro Shop that serves terrific breakfast and deli style sandwiches.
There is so much to do here in St. Croix; scuba diving, snorkeling, Buck Island tours, sunset cruises, fabulous restaurants and beaches, and so much more. Each side of the island offers its own beauty. Now that you have viewed all of the pictures just imagine yourself in this fabulous place. You're just a click away to making a dream become a reality. Let our piece of paradise be your home away from home.
We know reviews are very important in making your decision whether or not to book with us. We hope you won't be discouraged by the lack of reviews/comments on our condo. We are new owners and have lived in the condo since January 2016 and decided to list our condo with VRBO in October of 2016. Sadly, Hurricane Maria forced us to suspend from renting our condo for a few months for obvious reasons. We have completed necessary repairs from the hurricane and again, we have truly made this a wonderful home and it is now ready to share with people who have a love for the tropics, white, sandy beaches and the allure of the Caribbean. We hope you will give us a try and let us know how you enjoyed your stay at The Flamingo Beach House and the breathtaking island of St. Croix.
One final updated note: Nature has a way of bringing back even more beauty and life after a catastrophic disaster. This amazing island and its people have bounced back with zeal and vibrancy. They have gained strength and determination. They are and always will be VI Strong! Come and check us out for yourself!!
