Overview

St. Croix House Rental Photos and Description

House & Cottage 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 8)

#7 Estate Granard on St. Croix's rural South Shore is comprised of a main house and a cottage, both of which are available for short-term rental. The Main House is 3 bedrooms and 3 baths with a spacious, modern kitchen, living area and breezy front gallery-style porch with ocean views. Sunrise on this porch is a magical experience, one you will never forget. It is the perfect spot for morning coffee, lazy afternoons, sunset cocktails and conversations long into the evening. The Cottage is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath studio with a full kitchen and its own East-facing porch.

Surrounded by 300 acres of beautiful grassland, this property is peaceful, yet an easy 10-minute drive to the shops and restaurants of historic Christiansted. Beaches, grocery stores and St. Croix airport are also just minutes away. Centrally located on St. Croix, this is an ideal spot from which you can easily head east or west, minimizing travel time as you enjoy the many beautiful beaches and historic sites of this American paradise.

We’ve chosen to keep this property as close to natural Caribbean life as possible, cooling the house with ceiling fans rather than artificial air conditioning. You will not lack for the comforts of modern life here — from WiFi to online movies. But you will also experience life at nature’s pace, simple elegance in a soothing private environment.

About Barbara Walsh

Barbara, Mike and Mary Walsh decided to buy the property at #7 Estate Granard in early 2011. Mike and Barbara have lived on St. Croix since 1976 and raised their three daughters here. Mary, Mikes' sister, is an Emmy-winning producer from CBS News in Washington DC and has been visiting St. Croix for over 30 years. St. Croix is a special place for the whole family.

Barbara Walsh purchased this house in 2011

Why Barbara Walsh chose St. Croix

This historic property overlooks some of the best preserved Caribbean landscape in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The house was built in 1967 with a Studio Cottage added later. Although we rescued the house from the bush, it's clean lines and open front porch invite you to stay awhile.

What makes this house unique

From the house one has easy access to beaches, downtown Christiansted or Frederiksted, local farmers markets, water sports, adventure tours and a wide variety of cultural events. There is so much to do on St. Croix! Art, architecture, agriculture, sports and history. We can help you find yoga class, dance class, chi gong, massage and more. The best part is to return after a day of exploring and relax at this welcoming island home.

My Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
We love staying at this home in paradise. It's very spacious and comfortable. Great for families, couples, or Girls /Guys Getaway. Wonderful kitchen with everything you need to prepare meals. Beautifully decorated with local art. The beds were comfortable, with nice linens and towels. The porch is Wonderful! The view of the south shore and suger mill is very peaceful. The proprieters keep the place very clean and the landscape perfectly manicured. They were extreamly helpful and easy to make arraignments with. The property is secured with a large metal gate. The location is mid island making it easy to get to any part of the island that you want to explore. We loved driving to many different beaches to snorkel and visit both Christianstead and Fredrickstead. Driving through the Rain Forest is cool. The cuisine is excellent on St. Croix. This is truly American Paridise!

Sublime retreat

  • 5 of 5
The layout of this home is lovely: spacious bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The kitchen is wonderful to work in, and is connected to the dining and living area. The expansive front porch is a lovely place to soak up the breezes and view. The spaces are artfully laid out, well designed, comfortable; a joy to be in. This a great place for a peaceful retreat - away from it all but close to the conveniences of Christiansted. Very near the Art Farm for access to fresh local produce. Quiet privacy on the south side of the island.

Beautiful place, wonderful hosts

We had a great time here - the location is excellent, near beaches and easily accessible from the road. Very comfortable for 5 people - all the necessities of home. great views - we even had horses in the yard one day! (they had come over from a neighbors and were a bit hard for the owners of our property to convince to leave though..). the owners are lovely and very helpful with our requests for information.

We had the perfect island getaway at the home called Cruzan Classic. The view of the south shore is absolutely stunning! The home is secluded, so you have peace and quiet in a natural setting, and complete privacy since there's not another house in sight. We took the host's challenge of visiting 7 different beaches in 7 days, which was a blast... Cruzan Classic is strategically located, although it has all the privacy we'd need, town was just 10 minutes away. We went in several mornings a week to attend yoga classes, and later to visit Christiansted's many fine restaraunts. The town has an astounding number of jewelry artists who craft their own beautiful variations is either sterling or gold.

Cruzan Classic was perfect for creating meals, with it's fully stocked kitchen - dining on the patio was unforgettable. The home is worth visiting for the artwork, which is showcased throughout the place - it's clear that the home is designed with an artist's eye.
We would recommend this location to everyone, and definitely give it 5 stars !
