Perfect year round vacationing for the whole family. Any time is a beautiful time at the edge of the Caribbean Sea. Our 1600 sq ft Condo is located on 6 beautifully landscaped acres with a lagoon. A cozy, sandy beach with lounge chairs, tiki huts & palm trees are at the edge of the Caribbean Sea with fantastic snorkeling. Our large salt water pool offers a shade deck. We also offer a half basketball court and a shuffleboard court.There are also three nice picnic/grilling areas with tables and coin-op laundry facilities are available in the service building.
This large unit is beautifully appointed with art works and very nicely furnished. It has a new fully equipped kitchen including all your basic condiments. New flat screen 32' TV. The 2 galleries offer wonderful views of the lagoon, the Caribbean Sea and Long Reef, Buck Island, Green Cay and Christiansted Harbour. ALL STEPS FROM THE CARIBBEAN!
My name is Karen and my husband is DC. We have traveled the world literally and fell totally in love with St Croix, USVI. Our first trip here was for 2 weeks in July of '07. We returned in the summer of '08 for two weeks. We knew this was the place, in all the world, for us!. We came down in Jan '09 for 3 months with only 2 weeks reserved, we found a rental unit at Mill Harbour and loved every minute. We purchased our first condo at Mill Harbour in March of '09 for our new home. By the following year we were living in STX for 8 months a year.It has been great! We've met fantastic people that are now not only guest, but new friends. We unexpectedly just purchased our 3rd unit in Jan '13. We've had a fun time renovating this new 2 bedroom/2bath garden unit (listing #3506560) into a very special, comfortable home away from home. You'll love every minute!
Karen Current purchased this condo in 2009
This unit is a very special 3 bdrm/3bath unit overlooking the Caribbean Sea & the Lagoon. It is beautifully decorated and very well supplied. Your Welcome Basket of goodies & snacks along with chilled wine and Cruzan Rum will relax you onto 'island time'. If you prefer, a chilled glass of water, soda or an ice cold beer, are at your finger tips.
The unit is 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 galleries with beautiful views if the Caribbean Sea and the Pastoral Gardens.
This was the best getaway. We were greeted at the gate by DC and Karen. Wonderful owners that oriented us to the condo and great info regarding the island.
The condo was clean and spacious with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. We enjoyed sunrise coffee on the balcony every morning and rum punch at night for the full moon rising. We had a refrigerator stocked by our wonderful hosts, with beer, soda and wine. On the counter was a bottle of St. Croix's best Cruzan Rum. The condo was stocked with plenty of towels. We never had to use the air conditioner due to the warm trade winds blowing through the condo. You can purchase internet for the short stay if needed. We enjoyed snorkeling right in front of the complex. The restaurant on site is in the process of changing. Great bar! They serve outstanding pizza.
You will need a car. The roads have many potholes so drive slow and drive left. The grocery store close by to stock up. Thank you Karen and DC. We appreciated your quick response with our inquiry with 3 week notice.
Karen & DC met us at the condo. They're wonderful hosts, attentive to any need you may have. They even get you started with Cruzan rum & island beer. Having a 3rd floor unit, we were able to keep the doors & curtains open all the time. The breeze flowing through the condo was so nice. We loved waking up to the sun rising over the hill. The meals we ate there were enjoyed out on the balcony table. The upstairs patio is nice as well. If the moon's not too bright, it's a good spot for stargazing. WiFi is available for a fee.
The garden is lovely & well-maintained. Mongooses love to run around in it, too. The beach is nice & clean, although small. We would've liked to have taken longer beach walks. But for a small beach, it was never crowded. Lounge chairs are provided at the beach & pool.
The complex has a small bar/restaurant. We had a good pizza there on Super Bowl night. Breezes restaurant (excellent food) is a short walk up the beach or up the street. There's a grocery store within walking distance. Otherwise you need a car to get around. It's a short drive into Christiansted where there's lots of restaurants, excursions, & shopping.
We especially enjoyed the Bombay Club for dinner. Order from the specials menu. Angry Nate's and You Are Here had yummy fish tacos. Caribbean Sea Adventures provided a fun excursion to Buck Island, and they're wonderful with beginner snorkelers. The Cruzan Rum factory tour & shop is a great value. And if you like jewelry, shop at Crucian Gold. It's a local shop with locally crafted jewelry. It's affordable, too. I love the bracelet I got there.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to St. Croix. It's such a lovely island. We hated to come home to the cold & snow.
There's several reasons why DC and Karen's condo is getting 5-star reviews. We've rented several places. I'd have to say that they pay more attention to details here. For example, usually places don't supply enough towels. We usually pack our own. But to our surprise, there were plenty! Not only are the condiments, etc. passed on, but DC went to the store and gave us a nice start of fruits, wine, rum, etc. These may be little things, but they go a long way for an enjoyable stay.
The place is beautiful and comfortable. We really enjoyed the nice breeze that blows through the unit. AC is provided, but usually unnecessary. My wife and I really enjoyed the upstairs patio.
The location is excellent. Just a few minutes drive to Christiansted. Since I'm a kiteboarding addict, I was happy to find a great place to launch just a short walk down the beach. I really want to go back soon.
My family arrived at the Mill Harbor condo greeted by DC and Karen, the two friendliest property owners we have ever experienced. Their condo suited us well as it was clean, comfortable and stocked with everything we would ever need for dining in or simply relaxing at night catching a movie or watching TV. Nice touch with a bottle of wine and beer in the fridge on arrival! Blockbuster and the Pueblo market are conveniently located only 3/4 mile from the condo. A big plus was having a large number of beach towels for our excursions to the water. Unfortunately, while visiting Dorsch Beach we had two of our backpacks taken but DC and Karen came to our rescue with a new set of keys, security gate keycard and offer to provide us cash to get through our visit - what incredible consideration! Our favorite beach was by far Shoys Beach and the highlight of the trip was taking the all day Big Beard sailing excursion to Buck Island for snorkling through the Underwater National Park and then enjoying a beachside BBQ lunch (rum punch was awesome!). We would also highly recommend the Tutto Bene restaurant - excellent food, service and quality people. What could have turned our visit into a nightmare was by far offset by DC and Karen's condo experience and their genuine concern for their guests.
We stayed at the Mill Harbor condo for a week over Easter week. The condo was perfect for my 1 1/2 year old twins, husband and I, and our babysitter. The condo was well appointed and had everything that we needed,including, snorkeling gear, toys and 2 pack-n-plays. The condo was very clean and well kept. The view from the lanai and roof top deck is top notch.The condo complex has a small beach with chairs and some shade umbrellas along with a pool and a resturant on site(Smuggler's Cove). It is close to town, restaurants and the grocery store.
Karen and DC are lovely hosts who helped us with navigation, restuarant selection and kid friendly venues. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this home for vacation(it would have been nice to have a 2 week vacation!)
Our month long stay at Mill Harbour in DC & Karen's unit was a delight. The condo is very comfortable, extremly well equipped and stocked and they are fabulous owners who cannot do enough to make your stay enjoyable.
As expected the ocean swimming is fair; however, the snorkling--especially the man-made reef less than 100 yards from shore--is fabulous and the beach area and pool are very picturesque and relaxing. Smugglers Cove can be a little noisy at times; however, usually quiets down by 10:30. Although laundry facilities were available in close proximity at a cost, the only disappointment was no washer and dryer in the unit as listed in the kitchen description.
As all beaches are public in St. Croix, there are many choices of beautiful beaches--favorite: Sandy Point; great restaurants--favorites: Kendricks, Blue Water Terrace, Cultured Pelican, Blue Moon; and varied activities from snorkling
tours--Buck Island with Capt. Heinz to Caribbean Mocho Jumpies Shows, Sunset Jazz in Frederickstad and Botonical Garden to name a few.
The St. Patrick's Day Parade was a truly fun-filled Caribbean experience!
Although restaurant prices are on the high side, especially the dinner menus, portions are large and no tax compensates for the cost. Food shopping is expensive--brought alot from home--and found Plaza Extra to be the best.
Definitely returning--already made a reservation!
Located at the edge of the Caribbean Sea ... about 2 and a half miles from the heart of Christiansted. This location is perfect year-round, with much to do, see and experience every day! We are adjacent to the Nature Conservancy and beaches are everywhere, three golf courses, local shops, history surrounds you on the island of 7 flags.
