POOL STEPS FROM YOUR DOOR, RENTALS MANAGED BY OWNER!

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've just taken over the short-term rental management of our condo and we're doing 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!

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • wheelchair accessible

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 we've rented it long-term ever since. We've now made the move to short-term, and we hope island visitors enjoy their time at Kachi Ra as much as we did.

Andrea Chouiniere purchased this condo in 1999

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.

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.

A CLEAN, SPACIOUS, HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 4 of 5
Thank you for letting us stay at Kachi Ra! We had a wonderful stay. Everything was top notch. Having a towels, fridge and the cooler available to us was excellent. We used it almost everyday. We had everything we needed and a ton of space for 2 people. Thank you again.

A PERFECT SPOT

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I are very familiar with Pastory Estate where Kachira is located. She and her husband owned one of the condos there. We were so happy with Kachira. Alex was very helpful. It was great to be able to walk right out to the pool. Internet service was the best ever on Island. We have stayed in other places where the internet connection left a lot to be desired. We lost cable for a couple of days but who needs TV when you have a deck over looking the water and people to talk with. We hope that we can stay there again in 2014. The kitchen was well stocked but next time could we have a couple of wine glasses?

My husband and I would highly recommend Kachira as your "home away from home" while staying on the beautiful Island of St. John. From booking through Tom and talking to him on the phone I could tell he wanted to do anything to accomodate us during our stay. When we got off the ferry Alex was there to greet us and took us straight to the market for a few groceries. He was a very sweet young man who like his dad went out of his way to make sure everything was okay. He even came back the next day to take us to get our jeep. Thank you Alex for being such a great host and bringing us an extension cord so we could vacuum out the sand in our jeep rental. Everything was great the whole week. All in all, I would (and hope to) definitely come back to Kachira again.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY!

  • 4 of 5
My husband & I just returned from our stay at the Kachi Ra condo in St. John. We had a fabulous time and the villa fit our needs perfectly. I would highly recommend renting a car to get around the island. Even though the villa is just 1 mile from town, the road isn't a safe walk. We met another group of vacationers and one of the locals at the pool while hanging out in the late afternoons so we enjoyed having that experience as well. Alex was a very friendly and reliable greeter to us during our stay. I would recommend this property to others.

RELAXING ST JOHN VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at a variety of locations on the island and was very pleased with Kachi Ra. Thanks Alex for everything from lugging my very heavy luggage up the stairs to making sure I had a blowdryer. Nice views and everything we needed at a vacation property. I would highly recommend to a couple just wanting to relax and chill out away from town but close enough to enjoy it anytime you wish.
