St. Croix Condo Rental Photos and Description

Stunning 2 bed 2 bath beachfront condo in sought after Pelican Cove Condo omplex

Welcome to Island Oasis a breathtaking ground floor unit in the sought after Pelican Cove condominium complex. Located in an amazing setting with extensive tropical landscaping thru out, Island Oasis has a stunning view of the beautiful blue Caribbean sea and is just steps from the soft white sand of the beach. The amenities at Pelican Cove are second to none boasting an amazing pool (one of the largest in St. Croix) with hot tub,tennis right next door, a fabulous restaurant right next door and a superb location just minutes from Christiansted, Frideriksted, activities, golf, restaurants and more.

At Island Oasis its all about you! Every possible effort is made to ensure your comfort, relaxation and enjoyment from the moment you open the door. Mattresses ordered from the 5 star Bellagio resort; china plates to enjoy the fine Cruzan meals you prepare; a huge assortment of cocktail glasses for the libations you create on those beautiful Caribbean days and nights;wine cooler to keep things cool; all the kitchen tools that the fussiest of gourmet cooks would demand; a keypad lock programmed with your own personal code so no worries about keys;flat screen tv; free wifi; décor and views that will make you want to stay forever and the list goes on! Owner visits to the property are frequent so rest assured that everything will be in top notch shape upon your arrival.

The floor plan at Island Oasis encompasses 1250 square feet with an open spacious layout and nine foot ceilings. The master bedroom features a king size bed, walk in closet and full en-suite bath with a second separate vanity area; open the sliding doors and let the soft sound of the waves lull you to sleep. The guest bedroom offers two twin beds which can be converted to a king size, a walk in closet and full bath with shower. All towels (beach and bath) and linens (including Egyptian cotton sheets)are provided for you. The kitchen is complete with all the tools to make a gourmet meal or just whip up a few tropical drinks and, for the java lovers in the crowd, a cappuccino /espresso maker. The outdoor gallery is approximately 30 feet by 10 feet with exits from the living area and master bedroom and a stunning view of palm trees, sea and sand; just sit back relax and stay a while!!

There are several beachfront condo buildings in St. Croix that are located in a high density neighborhood across the street from a large housing project. Island Oasis is unique in that it is located in a quiet and safe residential neighborhood on a 5 acre, lush, tropical, beachfront property. The grounds and amenities are always immaculate beckoning you to enjoy all there is to offer! Don't be surprised if one of the staff cuts down a coconut for you to enjoy by the beach or pool! If there's anything missing that you think you need, no worries; we got you covered!

The island of St. Croix offers a multitude of outdoor activities, fabulous golf, beaches, shopping of all kinds and world class restaurants. The beaches are indescribably beautiful and are free for all to use. Just pack up for the day and take an adventure to a private cove or beach and enjoy the sun, sparkling waters and the quiet lap of the waves drifting in. Most roads are paved so navigating around the island is reasonably easy. Road signs can be misleading so having a GPS can make your adventure a bit smoother.

The people of St. Croix are incredibly friendly and are eager to help you plan your day or suggest some little known places to explore or visit. Their helpful ways, bright smiles and easy going relaxed attitude will make the memories of your island adventure last an eternity!

About Cynthia Shaw

We currently live in Mississauga, Ontario Canada. In 2009 we went on a condo vacation in St. Croix and fell in love with the island and the people. We immediately bought a condo there and have been happy with our choice ever since. There was something about the island that just seemed to be a perfect fit in our life. It was reasonably accessible and offered so many of the activities that we enjoy such as snorkeling, golf, fine dining etc and was such a quiet peaceful place to be. Many days when we went off on a beach adventure we were the only ones on the beach. It was like we were on our own private island. We know first hand how important it is to make a condo vacation worry and stress free for our guests and strive to make sure that all your needs are taken care of. We are easily accessible 24/7 in the event you have any questions or concerns. No request is too big or too small!! We all work hard for our vacations and we feel that you deserve the best and, the best is what you will get!

Cynthia Shaw purchased this condo in 2009

Why Cynthia Shaw chose St. Croix

We decided to buy a condo in the Pelican Cove condominium complex as it was one of the more upscale complexes on the island. The grounds were very tropical and impeccably maintained. The surrounding neighborhood was much better then many other complexes and the location was central to all parts of the island make travelling around very easy.

What makes this condo unique

Our favorite part of the unit is the large outdoor gallery where you can sit and enjoy the gentle Caribbean breezes and enjoy the fabulous beach and sea view. The layout of the unit is great with large rooms thru out. Much of the complex is owner occupied so typically it is very quiet and low key.We also love the fact that you can see the ocean from almost every room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cynthia: We loved our stay! As a previous guest wrote: "we appreciate you having such a carefree condo and hope future guests will continue to care for it so that we can all come again and enjoy this beautiful place".



We appreciate the decor very much and that you keep quality linens on site. That was a huge blessing for us as we only had romm for 1 beach towel.



We also enjoyed the grill and thank you for supplying the propane. We used it twice and enjoyed our dinners very much.



All the best and thanks again!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Cynthia for a wonderful place for us to stay! Everything was perfect.... the decor, the location, the comfort of home.

There is a nice beach for swimming a couple minutes of a walk. Very close to everything the island has to offer. The snorkeling equipment the hostess provided sure came in handy. Right at the complex we were able to snorkel and see wonderful sights, even better was the pier within a 10 of minute drive.

Thanks again for providing a "multi-generational" group to have a blast!

Beautiful home and great owner

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful just as advertised. The location is excellent right next to the palms hotel with easy access to their amenities and the pictures don't do the view justice.

Cynthia called us upon arrival and was available if needed and when above and beyond to assist us in any way.

Be sure to do carribean night on Mondays at the palms. The food is not great but the show is excellent.

"Island Oasis" A real island oasis in the middle of St Croix.

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to St Croix for many years and have even lived there twice. Pelican Cove Condominium is known island-wide for being one of the best, well maintained properties in St. Croix. Island Oasis is right in the middle of this property. Upon arrival I felt as if I was staying at the home of island friends. Cynthia has her condo equipped for dining in as much or as little as you like. A very nice grocery is only a few blocks away. There is a resort next to the property within walking distance that has a very nice dining options. St. Croix has excellent dining options for that matter from great local take-out rum shops to fine dining and everything in between.

If you enjoy having your morning coffee on your terrace, on the beach, or by the pool you can do it here. There are so many things to do on St. Croix that after 25 years of going there I still got to do some things on this trip that I had never done before.

Island Oasis is conveniently located on island making a drive anywhere no problem at all. If you have never been to St Croix Cynthia is always available to answer any questions you have before and during your stay. I highly recommend Island Oasis as it is truly an oasis on an island. I will be back!

Spring Break Escape!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to St. Croix. We had many questions regarding the condo and the area which were always answered promptly. Cynthia was very pleasant and helpful to work with. The condo was nice and clean and in a good location. It was quiet and relaxing as well. We learned quickly that the geckos like cheese... we would place a small amount near the railings off the porch and watch them slowly enjoy it (I'm sure they'll miss us). The TV was not working when we arrived and Cynthia made sure that it was replaced ASAP (even though we didn't plan to use electronics much but it helped with the two teenagers that were with us). The pool and hot tub were a nice addition and there were never many people there. Plenty of dishes to use and nice to have a washer/dryer if needed. We will definitely stay here next time we visit! Thank you so much, Cynthia, for making our vacation a wonderful experience.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Island Oasis, and only one word describes our experience...perfect! The condo was clean and beautifully appointed, and had everything our hearts desired. The grounds are a tropical delight and are always well kept. The location is ideal if you wish easy access to Christiansted and the beach. For us, Island Oasis is truly a gem.
