Step back in time in Christiansted

Anchored by an ancient fort, Christiansted is a step back in time. The port city sits on Saint Croix, the largest of the US Virgin Islands. Unlike other Caribbean islands, Christiansted swaps glitz and glamor for a laid-back vibe. This means you'll soon find yourself chatting to friendly islanders, sipping rum cocktails and slipping into Saint Croix time. As well as discovering the city, Christiansted vacation rentals provide an ideal base for exploring postcard-perfect beaches, historic plantations and botanic gardens.

Things to do

Tour Christiansted's rum distillery

Dotted with ancient cannons, Fort Christiansvaern watches over the waterfront. It's part of the Christiansted National Historic Site, which offers sweeping views over the waterfront. Over the centuries it's sheltered islanders from pirate raids, Danish invasions and tropical hurricanes. For a glimpse at the island's rum industry, head to the historic Cruzan Rum Distillery. You can learn about the oak-barrel ageing process, peer into the warehouses and sip on plenty of tasters. Can't get enough? Why not pick up a bottle and enjoy sunset rum cocktails on the deck of your Christiansted vacation rentals condo?

Natural features

Christiansted: The "Garden of the Antilles"

In fact, the island is so fertile that it was once known as the "Garden of the Antilles". On the coast you'll find golden beaches, swaying coconut palms and world-class marine sanctuaries.
