DOLPHIN'S PARADISE AT PELICAN COVE: BEACHFRONT TROPICAL ISLAND RETREAT

St. Croix Condo Rental Photos and Description

This condo features 2 large bedrooms with 2 full baths and sleeps 4

Enjoy the Caribbean lifestyle in our two-bedroom two-bath, tropical retreat in the quiet Pelican Cove on St. Croix's North shore.

Featuring large bedrooms with 4-poster beds, en-suite bathrooms and an open floor plan, the easily accessible first-floor condo is nicely appointed with quality items such as a new mangowood living set, rattan dining set, HDTVs (with over 100 channels) and free wireless internet access.

* Scuba dive: learn to scuba-dive at scenic Cane Bay or complete your certifications; take hosted dive trips from Dive Experience and other local companies

* Snorkel at many wonderful sights around the island: just out the doors of the condo at Pelican Cove, or for a must-see: go to the nation's only underwater national park: Buck Island

* Bring your golf clubs and check out one or all of the three golf courses on St. Croix: at the Buccaneer, at Carambola Golf & Country Club, and The Reef

* Tour historic Fort Christian and Fort Frederik

* Like rum? Tour the Cruzan Rum Distillery and the Captain Morgan distillery or just stop by the visitor's center

* Visit the St. George Village Botanical Gardens

* Check out sunrise or sunset from Point Udall, the easternmost point in the US.

About Richelle Ahlvers

After vacationing in beach destinations around the world, we tried the US Virgin Islands and fell in love with St. Croix. We purchased our condo here in May of 2012, and rent it out when we aren't using it ourselves.

Richelle Ahlvers purchased this condo in 2012

Why Richelle Ahlvers chose St. Croix

We looked at condo complexes all over the island, but the relaxed, quiet atmosphere at Pelican Cove, easy access to the beach, beautiful pool, well maintained grounds, and open floor plans with large rooms in the condos themselves made it a no-brainer to pick Pelican Cove over the others. The close proximity to Christiansted and some of our favorite restaurants to hang out along the boardwalk didn't hurt either...

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a wonderful vacation. When we got to the condo we found a clean, well stocked home base where we could relax, hang out, and enjoy a tropical drink or two between adventures around the island. It is located on the same property as the resort so it was easy to walk over to ask for assistance or grab a meal when we didn't want an evening out. The residents are friendly and the island small enough to navigate easily. We found some beach yoga classes, did some scuba diving and swimming, and a little shopping and sightseeing as well. All in all, a lovely relaxing vacation.



The free wifi was great. All our cell phones had good service on the island except for the one Verizon phone but it was nice to also have the wifi option for the iPad.

Convenient and relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous stay at your condo! We arrived on May 1st , 2014, for a 1 week stay. My husband did the St Croix 70.3 Ironman so we wanted a place that was close enough to race venue without being right in Christiansted, and had a kitchen so we could cook some of our own meals. This turned out to be an excellent choice!
From an athlete’s perspective, the location was ideal. It was about 15 minutes to race venue, and easy to get to. The kitchen was fully equipped and we cooked 2 out of 3 meals per day at the condo. 2 grocery stores are right on the way from Christiansted to the condo, making stopping off for groceries very convenient. It is very quiet, so napping and sleeping were no problem. If you are coming to St Croix for an event of this kind, this is a great place to stay.
After the race, we had 3 days to relax and enjoy the area and just hanging out in the condo. Our welcome packet, sent well ahead of our stay, had everything we needed to orient ourselves before we arrived. We took a taxi from the airport to the condo with no problems. The condo was very clean, and well maintained. The décor is delightful, sunny, island type décor with bright colors, rattan type furniture. Plenty of room to move around the condo and relax in the living room, the back patio, or set up your laptop at the kitchen bar or dining table. We stayed in the master bedroom and the bed was very comfortable (didn’t sleep in the 2nd room but assume it’s just as comfy!). There was plenty of room to hang clothes or put them in the dresser and get the suitcase out of the way. The toilet / shower area has a door to close it off from the vanity area and the bedroom which is nice for the one trying to sleep while the other showers.
The kitchen has everything you need to make your own coffee, snacks and full meals.
The back patio is quite large, with plenty of seating to enjoy the outdoors. The back patio faces the water, which is a short walk from the condo. You can see the water through the beautiful palm trees from the back patio.
If you like to sunbathe on the beach, there are chairs available at the condo’s beachfront. If you’d rather sunbathe by a pool, there is plenty of seating at the pool. The pool is quite large if you want to get some swimming in. We swam in the ocean in front of the hotel just North of the condo (walking distance… maybe 100 yds?), as there was less reef in that location.

Great Property and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
Went on a "Girls' Week." Plenty of room for all four women. This is a great condo and the entire property is well-maintained. We spent some time at the pool, which had lounge chairs in shady and sunny spots depending upon your desire. We ate about half of our meals in the condo, which has a well-stocked kitchen, and half at area restaurants. Make sure to check with the very friendly owner -- she knows some great places to eat!

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Condo at Pelican Cove was a great stay. We spent 2 1/2 weeks in February. Of the many places I have been, this was by far the quietest and most relaxing. The Caribbean Sea is within view and the trade winds that come off it allowed us to sleep with the door walls open. So at night, all we heard was the gentle breeze and the sound of the sea. Also, day was quiet. Because of the way condos are situated, heard almost no noise in morning or throughout day. Also, to my delight, there were no "pool pigs" who put towels out on poolside chairs to claim them for day. So, the lovely pool was available when I wanted to use it. Grounds were very well maintained and groomed. Condo too was equipped with all that we needed. Owner was helpful and easily reached for any questions.

Beach was rocky and not swimable but there is a nice beach with snorkeling just next door at the Palms resort, walkable. Condo is centrally located but I would definitely recommend a car; driving was not that difficult, "wide rights, narrow lefts and shoulder to shoulder." St. Croix is a quiet island, not much shopping or too many things to due but enough restaurants and other points of interest. I would say that relaxation is the key. Would definitely stay at this condo again.

Great vacation in St. Croix

  • 5 of 5
We spent two wonderful and relaxing weeks at this condo in St. Croix. It is exactly as pictured in the listing. The location is very convenient to sight-seeing, grocery shopping, and restaurants. The kitchen has every possible gadget, cookware, glassware, etc that you could possibly need for fixing your own meals, or there are any number of good restaurants on the island to try out. We would definitely recommend renting a car and taking your time to see the entire island. Don't miss the two rum distillery tours! (Captain Morgan and Cruzan rums are both made here). We were lucky to be here for the jump-up in February (I think they're held about 4 times a year) and for the agricultural fair--both very interesting and a great way to catch some of the local culture. Christiansted has some old buildings and churches that are fun to explore. We attended the Sunday service at the Lutheran church and were warmly welcomed, a very enjoyable experience. The scenery from Pt. Udall is just beautiful (I'm sure the sunrise would be spectacular, but we never made it around that early!) You can take some scenic drives up in the mountains, and visit the beer-drinking pigs, something you just don't see every day.
The pool at this complex is especially nice, and is kept perfectly clean every day. The grounds are also very well maintained. There is WiFi in the condo, along with TVs with all kinds of channels (not that you will likely spend much time sitting around and watching TV, but it's nice to keep up with the news and such).
Richelle was very easy to work with, and responded very quickly to any questions we had. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone planning a vacation in St. Croix.

Historic St Croix

  • 5 of 5
The accomodations are clean, well-kept and comfortable. The view, the pool and the beach are all very nice. I really enjoyed exploring historic Christiansted and tracing the early steps of Alexander Hamilton and Christopher Columbus.

St. Croix is the largest of the US Virgin Islands, with a relaxed and welcoming island lifestyle. With everything from tropical rainforest to national underwater reefs, there's plenty to see and explore.

If you'd like to learn how to scuba-dive, St. Croix's famous Cane Bay is a perfect location for your first dive experience, and don't forget to check out Point Udall, the easternmost point of the US.

There's also lots of local culture to soak in, so relax with some local Cruzan rum during a tour of the Cruzan rum distillery, or just kick back at one of the islands' great restaurants and enjoy.

Or, if you're looking for a quiet getaway, we can arrange to have your groceries stocked so you never have to leave the condo and poolside too. Whatever you decide, we know you'll enjoy St Croix as much as we do!
