Overview

St. Croix Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

'Blue tranquility' at Sugar Beach Condominiums, where the only thing we 'overlook' is the tranquil, blue Caribbean Sea!

Our unit, #205, is a luxurious 1400 sq foot condominium, located on the second floor, which features a 200 sq foot gallery overlooking the beach and the Caribbean Sea. Why stay in a cramped hotel room, when you can enjoy all these lovely features? A condo rental offers much, much more than a hotel room.

On the expansive gallery, which overlooks the beach, you can relax with a glass of wine while you enjoy spectacular views and stunning sunrises.

This condo is furnished with lovely tropical decor,and has flat screen TVs' in both bedrooms, as well as a 42' flat screen HDTV with DVD player in the living room, and programs via satellite dish. There is a stereo system with iPod dock in the living room, as well as iPod/MP3 radios in both bedrooms. There are sliding doors on to the gallery from both the master bedroom and the living room, and lovely teak Adirondack chairs to relax in and enjoy the tropical breezes.

We are the only unit at Sugar Beach that provides free, secure wireless internet, two safes to secure your belongings, and flat-screen TV's with DVD players in each bedroom as well as in the living room.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, huge closets, safe, and sliding doors leading on to the gallery, which over looks the beach. The second bedroom has twin beds which can be combined. Both the bathrooms are newly renovated, open and spacious, with lovely travertine tile, granite counters and new fixtures.

We have an off-site property manager, DJ Johns from Sunrise Properties on St Croix, who oversees our property, and maintains our unit to our high level of standards, and is available should you have any concerns. She will check in with you during your stay, and can suggest places to dine and visit. By utilizing an individual to manage our condo, we are able to provide you with a personalized level of service--luxurious linens, plush towels, over-sized beach towels and a welcome gift upon arrival. Arrangements can also be made to stock the frig and pantry.

We are able to offer lower rates than the Sugar Beach rental pool, and do not tack their additional service fee, saving you up to $50 per night.

On site there is a freshwater pool, nestled by historic sugar mill ruin, with club house, and 2 tennis courts. Our beach offers wonderful snorkeling and lounge chairs to relax upon. Sugar beach is about 7 miles from the airport and 2 miles from historic Christiansted.

About Karen & John

We always dreamed of a retirement spot on a tropical island, and we are so happy that we found that place here, at our 'Blue Tranquility' at Sugar Beach. After purchasing our condo, we discovered scuba, and became certified divers, and enjoy the 100+ dive sites available around St Croix.

John & I are 'island people' at heart. Home is on Long Island, New York, where we enjoy summer waterspouts and local beaches. I have lived on Long Island all my life, and love the proximity to the beaches (but I could do without the cold, snowy winters!)

Karen & John purchased this condo in 2007

Why Karen & John chose St. Croix

We chose our condo on St Croix for its 'million-dollar' view. Once we stepped out on the gallery, and saw the turquoise water and fabulous view, we were hooked! We looked at over 30 properties, but this one kept drawing us back. How lucky we were that the rest of the place was as lovely. St Croix is our favorite Caribbean island, charming and laid-back, and the local people, Crucians, are so warm and friendly.

What makes this condo unique

St Croix offers the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the Caribbean. There are many beautiful beaches, great restaurants, and many watersports a short drive away. Restaurants and shopping are a 5 minute drive, 2 restaurants in walking distance, and, of course, the famous beer-drinking pig. We have owned our condo since 2007, and still have not done everything there is to do on the island!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful week with one of the best views in the Caribbean!!! Right on the water. This condo is so equipped all you need is your swimming suit and time for relaxation. Close to many things but still off the beaten path that it is refreshing to come home. Gallery (covered balcony here) faces north for great sunrises, sunsets, and the ever welcome breeze from the ocean. Karen and John are so attentive and thoughtful that they have secure wifi, travel brochures, fully stocked kitchen, and so much more. The pool is also very nice just to relax around. We were here during the St. Patrick's Day parade and had a blast there too. Beware of the cruise ships coming in but there is lots to do here so you may not even know it unless you try to dive peir (it is off limits while the cruise ships are here) or go to downtown Fredicksted. Not nearly as touristy as some other islands so perfect to sit back and relax. We

are scuba divers and this was perfect!!! Huge gallery to hang up gear and relax on after a great day of diving the peir (when the cruise ships are out), sites around Fredricksted with N2 the Blue, or Davis Bay with Sweet Bottom Dive shop. Bbq by the pool is great for grilling that burger after a long day on vacation. Best value for my money in a long time. Shop at Costuless (small Costco) and Plaza Extra for "cheaper" groceries but this is an island so things are not cheap, except for maybe the rum. I have to come back for the Cruzan rum tour and many other things and I will make sure that every time I do, I will be staying here. Also great snokeling and ocean swimming right out the door in a little with turtle grass and a wall.

A view to die for!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to St Croix, first time in this condo. Wish we had found this place years ago-the view was spectacular! I think we spent all our time on the gallery, it was peaceful and serene, a great place to read a book or enjoy a glass of wine.

The property has a nice beach, and beautiful pool area. Units are situated so that you have complete privacy, no one is facing you or looks on to your gallery.

St Croix has a lot to offer, water sports and scuba being the top activities. Looking forward to our next trip there.

We recently returned from eight nights at Blue Tranquility. This condo is right on the beach! We visited a number of resorts and beaches, and none had such proximity to the ocean. It's also a short drive to Christiansted, and groceries are less than a 1/2 mile away. We ate every meal on the gallery, and spent most evenings there as well. The pool was very nice and warm. It was kept very clean. The sugar mill makes it picturesque. We were often the only ones at the pool, although there were plenty of chairs and loungers. The tennis courts were adequate. The beach itself is not the nicest beach as the sand is course, but we used this as an opportunity to beach hop. The whole island was battling sargassum, but the staff tried to clean it up. The condo is well-equipped, and the beds were comfortable. Resort management was responsive. The owners were quick to reply when we made our reservation. We were very pleased with our stay at Blue Tranquility.

Love, love, love!

My husband and I stayed in this unit for a week in February 2014. It would certainly be spacious enough for another couple or kids as we had more than enough room to ourselves. We've stayed in many oceanfront/beachfront type condos and hotels and we've never been as close to the lapping water of the ocean as this. It's quite unbelievable! We enjoyed the gallery (outdoor seating area) the most and spent every morning and evening there. It's very private to other guests both in nearby condos or on the beach. We had the beach and all the beach lounge chairs to ourselves almost every day. It's a very quiet place (which is what we were looking for). We didn't use the pool at all but it looked clean and very quiet as well. The beds were comfortable (and we're furniture people who are picky) as well as the outdoor seating! It was nice to relax at the end of a long day and watch TV with American channels. I had excellent communication with the owner and the caretaker in the island. I recommend renting a car and exploring the island and all the unique restaurants. The condo's location is also very desirable on the island as it's a 4 minute drive to Christiansted shops and boardwalk restaurants and close to a beautiful drive to Cane Bay and their restaurants. It was a centralized place where you could get to many different places from. A grocery store is very close as well. The condo was clean and well cared for and I would definitely return and recommend it!

Relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family have a wonderful stay at Bluetranquility. Condo was comfortable and well stocked. Our favorite part was the gallery overlooking the beach. What a view to wake up to! Pool was very nice, most of the time we had it all to ourselves. We bought our 9 year old son a fishing pole and he enjoyed fishing a short walk from the condo. Ocean water is gorgeous and warmer than the pool. We will definitely try to visit again!

Thoroughly enjoyed

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited St. Croix for the 2nd time this year, this time to celebrate our anniversary. We were very glad we chose this condo at Sugar Beach. It was extremely clean, well stocked, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The location is great, a quick drive to Christiansted. We loved walking to Breezez each night for happy hour and really enjoyed meeting the locals who were there as well. The pool was great, never crowded. They have on site security and an awesome view.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo!! Beautiful and clean and right on the beach!! Lay in bed and listen to the waves as you sleep!! Wake up and watch the sunrise from the Gallery!! Must rent a vehicle for your stay, we recomend a jeep as roads are a little rough! Definately LOVED Big Beards Buck Island tour!! Snorkled for first time and it was AMAZING!!! Loved the rain forest also, crazy looking trees! If you want to try authentic island food go to "Cheap and Good Food" tiny place but food was great!
