This was our first visit to St. Croix and my husband and I fell in love with the island. Within 24 hours of arriving we were trying to figure out how to never leave! We snorkeled several times in front of the condo and took a trip to buck island with Big Beards. We spent an entire day just driving the island... all the way to Point Udall and back. It was breathtaking. In Frederiksted, Pier 69 has great breakfast, Pollys has amazing coffee, Turtles has fantastic and huge sandwiches. The drinks at Coconuts can't be beat and Blue Moon offered up great dinner. Villa Morales was recommended by many locals and proved to be outstanding!
In Christiansted, we hit Angry Nates more than once (Fish Tacos!!) and RumRunners. The jewelry shopping there was glorious. Sonyas (for traditional Crucian Hook Bracelets!) and Crucian Gold were my favorite. There is a great souvenir shop called Many Hands (i believe) that sells all local items. Local post cards, art, sculptures, ceramics. I loved buying local and putting the money back in the community.
The SeaBreeze was just what I expected, quaint and comfortable with an amazing proximity to the water. We spent nearly every day on the gallery from 5-7pm with a rum cocktail (from the Cruzan distillery!) watching the sunset. Twice we saw dolphins a few hundred yards out! The diving pelicans were entertaining as well and the jumping fish. The neighbors were So nice and helpful too! When at the condo if we weren't on the gallery or the beach/water we were sleeping in the amazing king size temperpedic bed. It was exactly what we needed after our busy days when we were sore from all the snorkeling and running around!
Eric was wonderfully helpful. Available anytime we had a question. The condo is stocked with extras that really came in handy. Oh and the electronic lock is fantastic! no need to worry about carrying (and possible losing!) a key!
The only negatives we had about the island- hardly any street signs. luckily we brought our GPS and got around the island with little issue. We set coconuts as our home destination and we were free to explore without a worry of getting lost. I also missed the availability of fresh produce. I completely understand why there isn't too much available and what is available is pricey... but honestly for, the fresh Mahi-mahi I had daily pretty much made up for it. No place is perfect and these two tiny things certainly won't deter us from returning. St. Croix really hooked us!
Owner's Response: Wow...While our extended SeaBreeze family certainly enjoys hearing nice comments about our condo and the services and amenities we provide
we are always extremely happy when our guests have Great things to say about the Island of St Croix and their experiences while visiting.
While not everything is perfect in paradise there are so many positives and great places to visit and explore and it seems like the SeaBreeze guests took advantage of them and had a memorable time. We are very happy that you enjoyed your trip and stay at our condo.
