3 Bedroom 2 Bath Sleeps 6 - 3 1/2 miles east of Christiansted, St Croix, US Virgin Islands. DSL Wireless Internet Service.
You are cordially invited to a Caribbean Island Holiday in the West Indies. Enjoy the comfort of a private residence in 'America's Paradise'. This home is both private and secluded, built by the owner and cherished by many long time return guests. Located in a rural area of open countryside and rolling hills just 3.5 miles east of Christiansted. The private swimming pool, surrounded in tropical landscape, are a highlight. Take a night swim under the open starry sky. Wake up in your quiet sanctuary, step out onto the poolside, sip a cup of the local coffee, and listen to the peaceful song of the mountain dove. Estate Tipperary has been a secret retreat for many return vacationers; for some it was their very special honeymoon.
Beverly was the one who had this dream and made it all happen. Because she has been the sole contractor, builder, and owner, this villa has remained a very special place for her and her family. She feels strongly that everyone should experience a welcome, relaxing, memorable stay on St. Croix. There are many amenities, including an open mahogany wet bar, a complimentary bottle of the local Cruzan Rum with a fresh lime, DSL WIRELESS INTERNET, Cable TV, DVD,VCR, two outdoor showers, coolers, beach chairs, outdoor sensor lights, ample parking on private property, and a historic Danish brick garden walkway from driveway to swimming pool.
I built this house in 1964 and again after Hurricane Hugo in 1989.
Bev Collins purchased this house in 1964
Just love this place with the water gut and enormous Ironwood trees.
Lots of lawn to play on and the pool is tucked in close to the house and only a few minutes to beaches, restaurants and town!
Bev & Chip's house is a special gem on St. Croix. Their house is not only perfectly comfortable with all the necessary amenities and is well known on the island. The design and layout are spectacular and it is wonderful to stay in a house that holds so much history.
We will return to St. Croix and we will hope we can stay at Bev & Chip's house again.
Found our perfect home for stays on St. Croix. Privacy, but minutes away from wonderful beaches and shopping / restaurants. Lots of room to relax & a nice clean pool to cool off in after a day in the sun. We would always choose to stay here whenever we visit. Bev was a fantastic host!
I think after staying here we are spoiled and couldn't stay anywhere else. So many comforts made it feel like home. Everything from listening to the birds while having our coffee by the pool in the mornings to grilling dinner in the evenings and swimming with our daughter. We truly enjoyed our stay. Loved having a washer and dryer. Bev was always just a call away though we had everything we needed. The information packet was a great guide and we really enjoyed the beaches that were recommended. We were all so sad to leave. I hope that the next time we get to stay more than 12 days on St. Croix and at this beautiful home. Thanks Bev! ~ Sherry, Cody, & Morgan.
The rooms were much larger than the pictures. Everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, even aprons. The washer came in really handy since we were there about three weeks. It was so great to hang things on the line for that fresh air smell.
Bev is really on the ball. I called one morning when the coffee pot didn't work, within 15 minutes we had another coffee pot. That's service!
Our family, consisting of three generations, loved getting in the pool in the mornings, especially with all the pool toys. Myself, I liked just floating around on the plastic air chairs.
The location was great for us, very central. Since we had lived on St. Croix in the 60's we had a lot to see and show my granddaughters (like the school their mom went to where we lived, etc.).
We also drove up to The Leap and was so glad to see people still working with wood. We enjoyed the large Cruzan Rum Factory. Cheney Bay was a great place to paddle board but watch for sea urchins. Rainbow beach in F'sted had ski-dos.
As for eating, Harvey's in town had good local food, fungi, kaloo, goat, salt fish, etc. Kim's also had great fish, especially grouper. We ate at Buccaneer to celebrate birthdays-very elegant and delicious. Duggin's Reef had the best lobsters. Then there was the food wagon in the evening by the dock in C'sted (use to be Lucy's). Also the taco place on the right going into town-great taco's. It looks like it might have been a filling station at one time.
The beautiful home couldn't have suited us more.
My family and I loved our stay at this home. The pool was amazing and we enjoyed it every night after our daytime adventures. The house is so inviting and it had everything we needed. The neighborhood was quiet and easy to find. The grounds were lovely. Our family had a wonderful vacation and the home was perfect. Bev was so helpful and she ensured we had a great stay. I highly recommend this house for your stay in St. Croix. I am already planning our next visit.
This was our second stay at Tipperary with Bev as our host. We came to St. Croix for the Ironman 70.3 and Sprint triathlon. From our stay last year, we were looking forward to the serene and peaceful house and grounds, and especially the pool. The house is nicely appointed in a nautical / aeronautical motif, with lots of natural woods and warmth. Having stayed on Bev's other listing (https://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p323499), the house reminds me of the 45' CHP Trawler. The house is just a few miles from the center of Christiansted, and just a mile from Cheeseburgers in Paradise, one of our favorite hangouts. Beaches are less than 5 minutes away, and easy to find. As usual, the house was immaculate and completely furnished. Lots of towels and utensils, and we wanted for nothing. We pulled the pickup under the spacious carport and easily laid out our scuba diving and biking and gear in the shade. The pool was crystal clear and inviting, and we spent a lot of time swimming and lounging, withe the cooing of the doves in the background. I highly recommend this property, and we're already planning our return next year. Bev is a wonderful host, she thinks of everything, and she even came out on the bike course to cheer us on. Thanks, Bev!
