We stayed at Casa Del Mar 11/29-12/6.
The home was very beautiful, but pictures don't do it justice. There are scenic views from the patio of Buck Island, and on a clear day,--St. Thomas and St. John. I loved the fact that there was an arrival service to greet us. This was my first time renting a vacation home so I was kind of nervous about the basic amenities(i.e. towels, soap..), but they had everything and then some. It was literally like a home away from home. There were dishes, cooking utensils, washer and dryer, etc...all the things you need(but didn't think of)to feel comfortable and we didn't have to ask for anything...it was all there. Rooms were clean and decorated nicely. The nearest store is 10-20 minutes away. Downtown Christiansted is 15 minutes. The nearest beach wasn't more than 3 miles up the road. Diva Carina Casino was 5 miles away. Staff was very polite, very businesslike and communicated well. The only downside was that our phones and the internet hardly worked, but that is common on the island. Prior to us arriving the staff found that the refrigerator wasn't cooling properly. They promptly alerted us what was going on and made sure that the problem was fixed in a timely manner. They were very apologetic and even gave us a credit on our stay, without us asking. Thank you Kent, Mr. and Mrs. Taylor, Stan and Gayle and the staff at Champagne Vacation Rentals for your hospitality. My mom is from the island, and although we were here for my grandfather's funeral, you made our stay a pleasant one.
