A vacation rental that was beyond perfect with a dream view
Submitted: February 5, 2013
Stayed: January 2013
The guest house was the perfect fit for our vacation plans. Not only was it in a convenient location (right off the new bypass) but the amenities were tenfold for the price! Roger and Kat were more than accommodating and so very helpful. Their knowledge was much more valuable than any hotel concierge I have encountered. This listing is very accurate and the previous reviewers were not fibbing - a bottle of rum and some breakfast items await you upon your arrival! The pictures with this listing are beautiful but to see it in person is truly breathtaking. The guest house was very clean and the shutters were so amazing and really added an 'open air' experience for us that we truly enjoyed. I would recommend this property to any couple looking to visit St. Croix. We already want to go back and have only been home 2 weeks today! You will not be disappointed if you book with Kat and Roger!
Our recommendations for activities: (YOU MUST RENT A CAR! There is too much to see on this island to not have a vehicle.) Buck Island snorkeling experience, renting snorkel gear at Cane Bay and Rainbow Beaches, drive to Sandy Point (weekends only), drive to Point Udall for a sunrise, drive to F'Stead for a sunset, Jet skiing at Rainbow Beach (was fun but too limited to where you can ski - maybe one of the tours they offer would allow for an optimized experience)
Our recommendations for restaurants: The Bistro and Avocado Pit for breakfast, Turtle Deli for lunch (so good we ate here 3x during our 7 day stay!), Blue Water Terrace (huge portions) and The Galleon for dinner (great steak)
Owner's Response: As you see we have had so many great comments but that is a reflection of our wonderful guests. To see our guests explore and enjoy the wonder of St. Croix with such enthusiasm is heartfelt for us. Your joy makes us happy! That seems to be the attitude of the people of St. Croix--come visit, let us share with your our relatively undiscovered charms--our secluded beaches, amazing water sports, our friendly people, great restaurants and historic sites and of course our rum! To our guests thank you so much for staying with us you have enriched our lives these past years more than you can know. To all our island's guests thank you for making St. Croix even better!
