ELEGANT HOME - WALK TO THE BEACH

St. Croix House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Baths, Sleeps 7

Pink House St Croix is an elegant 3 bedroom home, and beautiful garden scape located a short walk from a white sand / reef flanked beach. Decorated in period antiques and mahogany, the interior features vaulted spaces and ceiling fans throughout, air conditioned bedrooms and Mexican tile floors. Coral stone outdoor living space and stone walls bring the gardens and Caribbean Sea view in. The Pink House is located just minutes east of golf at the Buccaneer, Buck Island excursions, restaurants, shopping and the art scene in Christiansted.

The house and location are truly exceptional. It is a vacation home that feels like a home. Comfortable furniture, great views, original art, conveniences, appliances and elegant touches like a mahogany grandfather clock that gently chimes in the quarter hours. Broadband and Satelite TV too (for those who absolutely can't leave work / civilization behind). For more information and another 40 pictures see our website below

Our house faces northeast catching the prevailing trade winds, morning sun and afternoon shade. It has some history - 150 foot walk off our back patio sits the ruins of the Cecilia plantation mill (Circa 1804). And it is comforting to know that it is well built - one of the few (approximately 10% of all homes) on the island that did not loose its roof during the 100 year storm 'hurricane Hugo' in 1989.

The location is unique. It is not on a remote hill side, not separated from the beach by the busy East End Road. It's a neighborhood home built around a great beach, and quiet community. The gardens are a labor of love for my wife who is an avid gardener in two very distinct climate zones. A slide show on our web site below highlights some of flowering trees, vines, bushes and cacti and fragrant plants of on our property (all photos shot on the same day).

Our beach is one of the best kept secrets on the island - beautiful white sand, lush foliage and ample shade, gradual sandy entry where you can then swim to coral reefs at Pull Point and Candle Reef and a view of Buck Island that is fantastic.

Our web site is loaded with photographs and information.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"The pink house made for a great vacation for our family. Kris was a completely accommodating homeowner who made our entire experience positive. Kris went out of his way to provide us with as much information as possible to make sure that we had a great vacation. The house is very spacious and gives you plenty of room to enjoy each others company while still providing privacy in its three bedrooms. The GPS map that Kris provided made getting around the island much easier and made left sided driving much less hectic. It also made it possible for us to fully explore the island without being worried about getting lost. Kris gave us a number of restaurant recommendations which we found to be very helpful in deciding where to eat. Overall, we had a great rental experience and would definitely recommend the pink house for your vacation."

DREAM BEACH VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Great beach vacation home! Thank you for letting us stay and enjoy the two beautiful beaches walking distance away! We enjoyed the nice layout of the house, luxurious decor and well equipped kitchen! Nice private residential neighborhood! Our son loved the hermit crabs, geckos, pelicans, herons and hummingbirds!

I WISH I COULD BE THERE RIGHT NOW! *SIGH*

(If I click my heals together, can I go back???)

The home is so incredibly comfortable. When you open all the windows and doors and let the warm breeze relax your nerves... aaaaaahhhhh....

The Pink House has all the comforts of home: beautiful furniture, plenty of beautiful linens, a nice open kitchen, perfect view, and plenty of space within the home.

The community is quiet. Plenty of safe roads to walk on. The access to the beach is just a quick stroll. And the beach is... paradise.

If you decide to venture out and explore the island, the owners have provided plenty of information on where to go, where to eat, maps, menus, and a GPS!

My time at The Pink House will never be forgotten! Thank you!

PERFECT ESCAPE!

  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed at the Pink House with a group of my girlfriends. We had the best time- the house is beautiful, spacious and clean and stocked with everything we needed for fun. The beds are comfortable, & the rooms are inviting. What could be better than relaxing with a cup of coffee on the porch or enjoying the gentle island breeze and the sway of the curtains? The location is also fantastic- short walk to a private beach and only a few minutes drive from the shopping and dining in Christianstead. Can't wait for my next stay!!
