Twenty years married! We wanted a second honeymoon and were thinking about a trip back to the Caribbean when we discovered Kathryn’s Joy. We were impressed with the pictures and thought are they photo-shopped? Too good to be true. The condo is exactly as described. We enjoyed the sound of the ocean 24/7 and many sunrises and morning hours relaxing on the deck. It was hot in August, just as expected, so we left the windows open night and day for the terrific breeze. The condo is a bit of paradise.
As first timers to St. Croix we did our research and talked with Joe about what to do, where to go and where to eat. We rented a jeep and did excursions daily and a different restaurant nightly. We love the ocean and beaches of St. Croix. The water temperature was perfect for 90 degree weather. We took a Big-Beard sailing trip to Buck Island and went snorkeling . We rented paddle boards. We discovered the prettiest beach we’d ever seen while driving to Frederiksted, so we pulled over and spent the afternoon there. We spent many days on the beaches of the nearby local resorts, where their staff catered to us.
While we did some grocery shopping we’re foodies and we wanted to explore the restaurants. We had many options and only went to one restaurant twice, because it was so good! The local fish, Wahoo, was amazing and the service was outstanding everywhere we went. The locals are a relaxed and friendly people.
At the end of the week, we were thinking when can we come back. Next time we might even bring our teenagers with us!
One Tip: Talk to Joe, the owner. He’s lived on that Island and he knows it well. Tell him what you are interested in. He and his team really helped ensure our high expectations were met.
