Overview

St. Croix Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Br, 1 Bath 2nd Floor Waterfront Condo 2 Patios. Sleeps 2.

One of our Four beautiful Sunset Beach Condos, an absolutely perfect choice for your vacation, “Mermaid’s Balcony” is a waterfront condo located on Sunset Beach. It offers spectacular beach vistas, the relaxing sound of ocean waves and tropical island breezes. Truly paradise, this unit has it all: sunsets, snorkeling, relaxation, and privacy. It is an upper-level 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath condo on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Wake up every morning to crystal blue water and watch postcard sunsets in the evenings from your private, spacious balcony. Enjoy a walk on the beach, treasure hunting, or simply relax with your favorite beverage and a book on the gorgeous white sand beach just steps from your door. St Croix has some of the best snorkeling in the Caribbean and this beach is no exception. You will be amazed by your undersea adventures!

Just minutes from your beachside condo, you can enjoy Stand-up paddle boarding, jet skiing, horseback riding, scuba diving, hiking, kayaking, ATV tours, and bicycling. Also on Island is eighteen holes of the most beautiful and challenging golf in the Caribbean at Carambola Golf Club. This course was established in 1966 and designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. It is considered by many to be the finest course in the Virgin Islands.

Frederiksted is within walking distance, where you will find many local shops and restaurants. You can also enjoy a walk on the pier or a leisurely stroll along the waterfront. The pier is a great place to fish, swim, snorkel and dive or take a refreshing plunge into the sea! Regularly scheduled events on the West side of St. Croix include Sunset Jazz concerts, Wine Club and live music at most beach bars on Sundays. And the Carnival parades are not to be missed!

Diving in St Croix is exceptionally diverse. There is near-shore and beach diving, walls, reefs, pinnacles, wrecks and one of the most spectacular pier dives in the Caribbean, located just minutes from the condo. Buck Island, the only underwater National Park in America, is a short boat-ride away and is an international diving and snorkeling destination. No experience is necessary as they will teach you all you need to know for your first dive.

About Cheryl Wooden

Our first trip to St Croix was in 1995. In 2006 after numerous trips to the Island, we decided to move from our Nations Capitol, Washington DC to the Island we love so much. We love our Island living, Sun, Sand, beautiful water and wonderful people.

Cheryl Wooden purchased this condo in 2013

Why Cheryl Wooden chose St. Croix

Prior to moving to the Island we made many, many trips to St Croix. Our family enjoyed our stay at the Sunset Beach condos and were very excited when we found out two units were for sale. We quickly bought them both. This is where we spend our days on the beach. We know you will enjoy it here as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

Wonderful snorkeling right out your door. Most days you will think you have your own private beach, a rare commodity these days. Every evening enjoy the best sunsets on the island.

We were extremely happy with our stay! The condo is very clean, cutely decorated and exactly as described...right on the beach �� We plan on returning to St. Croix as we absolutely fell in love with the island! Cheryl was a awesome owner and very helpful throughout the whole process. We highly recommend renting from Cheryl and Deb.

Thank you so much!!

The Condo was nice and clean. The bed was comfortable. It had everything we needed, dun screen, snorkeling equipment, etc. , except groceries and diet Dr. Peppers, which are hard to find on the island. The owner and her family are very nice and eager to help with any issues or questions. We met some nice people in the other condos. We felt safe and did not have to worry about our safety. The people on the island are very friendly. you will need a rental car with good ground clearance since the roads have a lot of pot holes.

Beautiful sunsets!! Condo had everything you need to make you feel at home. It was very clean and comfortable. Loved the sounds of the beach. Great dinners and beach close by at Sand Castles and Rhythms at Rainbow Beach. Loved the Cruzan Rum Tour. If you want a relaxed stress free vacation, this is where to be.

Perfect Location for a Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay in Mermaid's Balcony was fantastic. The condo was spotless and had everything we needed for our stay, including all the kitchen amenities.

Soothed by the sound of the water outside our balcony during the day and night, Caribbean breezes allowed us to sleep with the windows open most nights – even in the heat of September.

The west end of the island seemed much less crowded than Christiansted and still had accessible grocery stores, laundromat, bakeries, etc., and on the day(s) that we visited anything east of the airport, it was a very manageable drive using the St. Croix highway.

There is plenty to do on the west side, too: exploring the rain forest, hiking the Caledonia Gut, Cruzan rum factory tour, Sandy Point beach (stunning!) and a short drive to hike Trumbull trail to the tide pools.

Most of all, the beaches on the west side were calm, sandy and relaxing - with plenty of snorkeling opportunities.

Cheryl was a breeze to work with and was on top of every detail. You’ll be happy you chose Mermaid's Balcony!

Perfect beach view and location

  • 5 of 5

If you want to step outside to be on the beach, this is the perfect condo. We loved having dinner on the balcony while enjoying the sunset or watching the dolphins swim by while having breakfast. The beach is great for swimming and snorkeling and it's a short walk on the beach to restaurants and stand-up paddle board rental. The pier and Fredriksted stores and restaurants are just a bit further, within easy walking distance.

The condo is well-equiped and air-conditioned. We visited in June but didn't need the A/C on most days. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking, including the wine bottle opener. The bathroom is spacious and has a very nice shower, helpful after all that beach time. The king-sized bed was comfortable and the bedroom has plenty of storage space. The condo provides beach chairs and plenty of beach towels.

Cheryl was extremely helpful and accommodating. She had some great ideas of things to do on the island and she made sure we had everything we needed to make our visit enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, the very first thing all of our guests say is "It really is right on the beach", usually followed by "It's even better than I had imagined". I also got to learn a little bit about Ham radio from our guests, thanks as I found it to be very interesting.
