Sion Farm Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 King Bedrooms (1 can be made into twin beds), 2 Full Baths, Sleeps 4+

Sea Breeze is an upscale, newly and meticulously renovated 2 BR Condo in quiet Pelican Cove on the North Shore of St. Croix. All furnishings are new and include such details as a coffee grinder and smoothie maker/blender! The ocean view from the LR, MBR and patio is gorgeous. The beach is great and snorkel equipment is provided! There is a huge (Chlorine-Free!!) freshwater pool w/ tennis court. It has A/C throughout, free Wireless Internet access, 2 cable TVs. Sea Breeze is next to a resort serving B/L/D. St. Croix is a US territory and so uses the US Dollar and English. It is more laid back than St. Thomas (lacking the often daily crowds of thousands from cruise ships). It has great shopping, many remarkable beaches, golf courses, a casino, many fine restaurants, botanical gardens, horseback riding, water sports, and, tours of historic forts, plantations and even of the famous Cruzan Rum Factory. Diving & snorkeling are world renown!

About Sid Binks

Originally from Buffalo, NY, I moved to Washington, DC to study clinical psychology in 1986. Having never been to the Caribbean, it was simply amazing to see and experience its beauty and warmth. My first thought was, 'Why doesn't everyone live here?'

Sid Binks purchased this condo in 2004

Why Sid Binks chose St. Croix

On that very first trip, we bought Seabreeze. We just couldn't let go of our very first vacation to the Caribbean, and especially, the turquoise water. We LOVE sharing Seabreeze with fellow vacationers like us. We get excited when people tell us, 'This is our first trip!' because we know first hand what they are in for and we like being a small part of it!

What makes this condo unique

There are many benefits of this particular condo. Seabreeze is in a community of four small buildings. It is large, first floor and in the building right on the water with fantastic views from the patio, living room and master bedroom. It is fully air-conditioned, has free WiFi available and is on a great beach to snorkel because of a terrific coral reef. The pool is huge and newly renovated with non-chlorine-based filtration. The community is also located central to most activities on the island but remains quiet and relaxing. It is very near a resort resort which has a great bar and restaurant to visit when you don't want to cook! And, there Monday nite Caribbean Cultural Nite of Entertainment is wonderful fun!

Fabulous Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in St. Croix! The condo was perfect with all the amenities. The owners thought of everything from books to read while relaxing on the beach to an espresso machine. It was great to have snorkeling equipment and beach towels waiting for your arrival. The views of the beach from the bedroom and living area were spectacular. We especially loved the notebook made for guests detailing all the restaurants and other activities to enjoy while vacationing at St. Croix. We would absolutely stay here again the next time we're in St. Croix!

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Pelican Bay property over Christmas and is was AWESOME!!!! There were two couples and one child and it suited us perfectly! The beach was literally steps away and the pool was just as close for those who didn't like the surf.

The property was perfectly managed with greeting at the airport and escort to the property (which was great because our flight was very late). The accomodations provided all we could ask for from beach towels to pool accessories and all the kitchen supplies you would need. There was also bug spray and sun screen, just in case you forgot. An added bonus was a washer/dryer that allowed us to pack light.

The info on the island and recommdations allowed us to visit some local spots that we wouldn't otherwise known about which was awesome!

All in all, I'd would highly recommend this property for two couples, plus a child or two. Everyone will have their privacy but also the chance to socialize. I'd re-book in a heatbeat!!

Owner's Response: Hello! Thank you for taking the time to write the review, and thank you for such a great review! It was a pleasure meeting you all. So happy that you enjoyed the condo and the island. From talking with you, I know you were planning on exploring the island. So glad that you were able to find some of those local spots. It really does make a difference to interact with locals. I feel it enriches my experience when I do. The owners really try to provide everything you might want, except food, of course. And, some of our guests have left behind items we did not think of - for example, recent guests really wanted beach umbrellas, and they left them behind in the unit. We want you to be comfortable, and have everything you need. I hope you return! It would be a pleasure to welcome you back to Seabreeze and St. Croix! Christie Powers Property Manager

PARADISE as Advertised!

  • 5 of 5

1st things 1st. The unit I rented from Sid was IMMACULATE! You could eat off the floors. Read the listing carefully because Sid provides everything he says he does and then some. The listing says "Just bring your toothbrush" all else is provided. The truth is...I'm sure if I looked around a little I would have fornd a toothbrush too. 2 Patios looking out at the Carribean just a few meters away. The Palms Hotel and restaurant also just a few meters away. I'm a little reluctant to place this GLOWING review because I am definitely returning and would definintely stay here again and don't want everyone to know about my "secret paradise'" destination. Sids realtor, Christie Powers, was there for anything and everything I might need...which wasn't much. So...come to paradise on St Croix...stay at Sids Seabreeze condo and enjoy...just don't do it when I come back. I've got 'dibs'!

Owner's Response: You know you've got "dibs"! Any time you want to return, we would love to have you stay again at Seabreeze! It would be a pleasure to welcome you back. I am delighted that you enjoyed the condo so much, and now consider it your home away from home. I believe the pictures don't do it justice - you have to come and experience it. Thank you for taking the time to write the review, and thank you for being such a great guest. Please return!

Absolutely AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

Front the moment the plane landed in St. Croix, we knew that our vacation was going to be amazing! Arriving at the Pelican Cove, we were awed by its proximity to the ocean - the blue gorgeous ocean!

Entering Unit # 104, we were engulfed by the sense of the 'beach' simply from the decor of the unit. The unit is decorated so tastefully with art and other artifacts from St. Croix that makes you want to learn more about St. Croix and enjoy every single moment that you are inside of the unit and around the island.

What added to the feeling of being 'on' the beach, other than the fact that we can see the ocean from the living and bedroom and it literally being 20 feet or so away from the water, was the beach equipment that is available to use for everyone- such as snorkeling gear, beach shoes, towels, chairs, and umbrellas. We loved it!!! It was perfect.

In addition, having a full kitchen at the unit was a huge plus as we cooked breakfast every morning, felt right at home, and ate at the beautiful patio. The patio, overlooking the water and palm trees was amazing equipped with a round table with 4 chairs along with patio furniture and side tables. We spent a lot of morning and late evening on that patio listening to the ocean and enjoying glasses of wine.

The bedrooms were spacious and pristine. The sheets, pillows, and covers smelled very nice - a combination of the detergent scent and definitely the beach. The closets were very spacious too with many hangers and plenty of towels. The bathroom options was great too. One had a tub and another had a shower.

In conclusion, Sea Breeze at Pelican Cove definitely lived up to its name and to our expectations - to the tune that we are already planning on going back in January for another 10 days.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great, right on the beach!!! Loved waking up each morning and hearing the waves! We toured both ends of the island and some in the middle to(we got a little lost); but was pretty easy to find way around. You have to try Blues' Backyard BBQ. It is only 5-10 mins from condo. Once on the main road turn right and its not far up the road on the left!!!!!! Butters makes the best mixed drinks!!!!

We are so looking forward to coming back next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write. It is an amazing condo, and right on the beach! Sounds like you did a lot of exploring - getting lost is part of the fun! You are on an island, you can't be lost for long. And, next time, it will be even easier to get around. It was great meeting you, and we would love to have you return anytime!

Always a Seabreeze

  • 5 of 5

We spent a glorious month in the Seabreeze Condo. It was clean, up to date, very well equipped, quiet, and the best ocean view possible. There was always a breeze so there was no need to use the AC. Christie met us at the airport and escorted us to the condo and gave an introductory tour to acquaint us with the unit. During our stay both Chris and Christie were eager to help with questions. Since this was our second trip to St. Croix, were eager to experience the island again. We enjoy St. Croix for the laid back lifestyle, the beaches, restaurants, culture, and historical estates. There are good hikes, great snorkeling, and wonderful people everywhere.

Owner's Response: We so enjoyed meeting Judy and her husband! They were wonderful renters. We encourage questions, whether it's about the condo, or about the island. Our goal is to have our renters have a wonderful time on St. Croix - whatever that means to them. Some people just want to sit on a beach and relax. Judy, however, wanted to get out and explore. I liked running into them out and about. And, it was fun to see them get a gradual tan - more tan each time I saw them. I hope they return to St. Croix, and hope they return to Seabreeze! It would be a pleasure having them rent with us again!

Pelican Cove
Car: recommended

The Pelican Cove Community is ideally located on the central North Shore only minutes from the town of Christiansted, the capital. It is beachfront and very peaceful and quiet. It is next door a resort serving breakfast, lunch and dinner for when you don't want to eat in. Because of its central location, it is a short drive (5-15 minutes) to most places on the island. The St. Croix airport (STX) has direct flights from a number of cities including but not limited to Miami (American Airlines), Charlotte (US Airways), St. Thomas. Daily excursions by ferry or Seaplane (Seabourne Airlines) can be had to San Juan and St. Thomas from Christiansted Harbor - 10 minutes from the Condo!.

Other Activities: Kayaking by moonlight with flourescent fish, horseback riding in the rain forest and on the beach, touring a rum factory, walking on historic rum plantations and enjoying outdoor botanical gardens are just a few of the fun things to do!
