I grew up and got married in NYC and moved to St Croix in 1971. I love St. Croix. My three children grew up in St. Croix, one was born on there. It's a wonderful place for children to grow up on. I lived and worked there for 37 years. I am now living in Florida but do hope to return to St. Croix. There is no better place to live or to vacation in.

C. D. Cortes purchased this house in 1973

The view from this property is fantastic. Every room offers a wonderful sea view. The trade winds breezes that go throughout the house are marvelous and keeps the house comfortable especially at night. There are many mature fruit trees such as mango, plumb(Caribbean), genip, sour sop, carambola, sugar apples, guavas, and limes that I planted because I love these fruits.

The house is located on the West End of St. Croix which offer the most beautiful white sand beaches on St. Croix. My very favorite is Dorch Beach. The snorkeling is great at this beach and it is only 5 minutes away from the house.

Great location and very helpful owner !

  • 5 of 5
We appreciated very much since the beginning contacts with Carmen who answered all our questions about property, car rental, activities, restaurants and other islands. Upon arrival we found all the needed information and everything was as expected with no surprises and all was very clean.
The house is conveniently situated on little hill with very quiet surroundings (with no rooster around...), though close to grocery shopping, Armstrong Ice Cream, restaurants and Frederiksted. The garden (mango time...) and the balcony with great views were appreciated.
We enjoyed snorkelling at Frederiksted pier, even at first a bit skeptical about doing that in a harbour. We found nice calm conditions, clear waters with lots of fishes, corals, turtles and even some sea horses. Diving with N2TheBlue was also a great experience.
We would definitely return to St-Croix and this property.

Great place for the price

I have stayed at this property for years. Last summer I went there twice, first I went with my two children and husband, later my husband and I went just to do some scuba diving. We enjoy staying in this home because it is very open and airy. You can see the beautiful sea view from every room. It has a spacious patio and a large porch overlooking the valley and sea view. We had everything we needed to cook at home. The home is nicely furnished. The children enjoy picking and eating the fruits. Last year the mangos were plentiful and they were delicious. My kids would go pick them then sit on the porch and eat them for breakfast. The porch is also my favorite spot to read during the day or star gazing at night. There is such a nice breeze through the house you don’t need to turn on the fans.
.
The beach is only a few minutes away by car from the house and that’s where we spend most of our days. We are already making plans for our trip back next summer. We can’t wait to go back.

Amazing sea view form the Patio, Lovely property

  • 5 of 5
St. Croix is beautiful and this home was perfect for our family. We cooked daily in the quaint kitchen. The beaches were less than 10 mins from the house. Our favorites are Dorche and Rainbow in Frederiksted. The house is clean and airy. The patio over looks the property with a amazing view of the sunrise and sunset. A nice surprise was the fast reliable internet. We ate fresh mango and star fruit from the many fruit tress on the property. Make sure you hike up to the tide pools and visit Cane bay. The owner is very responsive and gave us many ideas or where to go. I am already planning a a trip for this summer. I would recommend this property for families.
