Cruz Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Br/1 Ba, King Bed w/Queen Sleeper for a couple or small family with 1-2 kids.

Everything you need for a fabulous St. John vacation without the high price tag! One of the best values on island.

We do our best to ensure you love your time here as much as we did when Kachi Ra was our home.

Air conditioned bedroom is the perfect place to get a good night's sleep at the end of your days exploring this beautiful island. Cozy, casual with rich mahogany surroundings in a quiet, safe, residential neighborhood full of mature growth trees, new furniture, flat screen tv, wireless internet and digital cable.

Kachi Ra (Kachee'-rah) is just 20 steps away from a great pool and gas grill on an expansive sun deck with lounges and views of Little St. James and Pillsbury Sound.

Located only one mile from the ferry dock, Kachi Ra is within walking distance of town and a very short ride by car.

This is a very quiet, serene place with all new furnishings. Drop us an e-mail or give us a call!

About Andrea Chouiniere

Ted purchased this condo in 1999, fresh out of college. I met him in 2005, and it was here at this condo that we fell in love and started a family. We moved out of the condo in 2010 to better accommodate our growing family, and started renting it out long-term. We now rent it out short-term to accommodate budget-savvy travelers like ourselves, and we hope island visitors enjoy their time at Kachi Ra as much as we did.

Why Andrea Chouiniere chose Cruz Bay

The condo is located in a quiet neighborhood, very convenient to Cruz Bay and North Shore beaches. The condominium complex is home to a mix of long-term residents, condo owners, and short-term rentals. It's a peaceful place where neighbors look out for one another. You can't beat the pool right outside your door, great for a dip in the quiet morning hours or for a refreshing swim after a long day at the beach.

What makes this condo unique

My husband worked hard to constantly improve the condo during our years living there. He handmade the gorgeous bathroom countertop, which evokes a nautical feel. He retiled the bathroom shower in a gorgeous dark slate, painted the kitchen cabinets, and built out the desk space and shelving himself. There are lots of little handmade touches throughout Kachi Ra that make it unique.

What a pleasant place!!

  • 4 of 5

Andrea was so very pleasant to work with! The property was beautiful & very clean. Plenty of beach towels & all amenities were much appreciated (extra pillows, sheets & blankets). Thanks to Andrea for the great directions... would have been lost without them! We would definitely stay there again!!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very scenic property that made it very easy for us to explore St John. The condo is comfortable and clean with everything you need. The grounds are beautiful. The location made it easy to drive the mile or so into Cruz Bay for restaurants. We loved the options in Mongoose Junction, especially the Sun Dog Cafe. The row of waterfront restaurants was great too. We found it easy to access all of the national park beaches, as well as visit Coral Bay and the east end.

Peaceful and Private

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful and private, yet so conveniently located to hiking (trail head right on the property) and Cruz Bay. Having a table & chairs on the porch was especially nice as we liked to have our breakfast outside. The pool was wonderful and had spectacular views. We did walk into town on the weekends for dinner when the buses weren't running (only one mile), but would usually take a taxi back. A beautiful property that we hope to visit again.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay for a week from Dec 14-21 - the condo had everything we needed. We ended up cooking dinner for the entire week and it was so convenient to have the gas grill on the pool deck right outside our front door. Found everything we needed at the Starfish Supermarket in Cruz Bay - only a mile away - where you have the option of tons of restaurants if you choose to eat out.

We enjoyed great snorkeling at Waterlemon Cay and South Haulover. Also, enjoyed a great day at Trunk Bay - where the beach is beautiful and there are full facilities - nice to have flush toilets and showers to rinse off the salt water residue. Made spending the entire day there very enjoyable - just pick a day when there aren't lots of cruise ships in St Thomas.

Owners of the condo were great - very responsive in answering any questions and addressing any concerns..

Perfectly wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned (today) from a 6 night stay ay Kachi Ra and we absolutely loved it. It was quiet and yet only a mile from the center of town. The condo is clean, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. It was just perfect! The breeze was so constant and delightful that we never used the AC. We've been to St. John many other times and it's been very hot so we wanted AC but in this case we did not need it at all. It was extra nice to sleep with the soft breeze blowing. We couldn't be happier with our choice and can't wait to return!
