About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Pink House St Croix is an elegant 3 bedroom home, and beautiful garden scape located a short walk from a white sand beach. The interior features vaulted spaces and ceiling fans throughout, air conditioned bedrooms and Mexican tile floors. Coral stone outdoor living space and stone walls bring the gardens and Caribbean Sea view in. The Pink House is located just minutes east of golf at the Buccaneer, Buck Island excursions, restaurants, shopping and the art scene in Christiansted.

The house and location are truly exceptional. It is a vacation home that feels like a home. Comfortable furniture, great views, conveniences, appliances, Broadband and Satellite TV.

Our house faces northeast catching the prevailing trade winds, morning sun and afternoon shade. It has some history - 150 foot walk off our back patio sits the ruins of the Cecilia plantation mill (Circa 1804). And it is comforting to know that it is well built - one of the few (approximately 10% of all homes) on the island that did not loose its roof during the 100 year storm 'hurricane Hugo' in 1989.

The location is unique. It is not on a remote hill side, not separated from the beach by the busy East End Road. It's a neighborhood home built around a great beach, and quiet community.

Our beach is one of the best kept secrets on the island - beautiful white sand, lush foliage and ample shade, gradual sandy entry where you can then swim to coral reefs at Pull Point and Candle Reef and a view of Buck Island that is fantastic.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The pink house made for a great vacation for our family. Kris was a completely accommodating homeowner who made our entire experience positive. Kris went out of his way to provide us with as much information as possible to make sure that we had a great vacation. The house is very spacious and gives you plenty of room to enjoy each others company while still providing privacy in its three bedrooms. The GPS map that Kris provided made getting around the island much easier and made left sided driving much less hectic. It also made it possible for us to fully explore the island without being worried about getting lost. Kris gave us a number of restaurant recommendations which we found to be very helpful in deciding where to eat. Overall, we had a great rental experience and would definitely recommend the pink house for your vacation."

A lovely place in St. Croix

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed ten days at the Pink House in late March. This is a family home. It is beachy in a genteel Caribbean way without being “themey.” Everything is geared toward a casual style of easy living and relaxation – soft colors, gently worn oriental rugs and furnishings and wonderfully soft sheets on the master bed. All of the windows open to allow a continuous breeze through the house creating a wonderful sensuous pleasure. The beach is within a short walking distance, close enough to hear the persistent sound of the ocean waves (without the too close roar). We look forward to our next visit!

Perfect Rental for Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The pink house was extremely charming and fulfilled our needs for our two week vacation. The beaches near the house are beautiful and most times, we had them to ourselves. We had six adults staying in the house and no one ever felt crowded. Hortensia was a wonderful guide and meet us at the airport which we found was very helpful. Overall, staying at the Pink House made for a relaxing and wonderful vacation. Thanks again! Oh the internet was great too!

Very Nice, Outstanding view of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Plenty of room and very comfortable for our family of 5. First thing we did was go down to the secluded beach and watch the pelicans diving for fish. not much of a swimming beach, water is rough, but soft sand, wildlife and awesome view of the Caribbean. Hortensia was very helpful and willing to provide all we needed. Coffee on the front deck looking out over the ocean in the morning is tough to top.

The property location was ideal. Close to beaches and quiet east end of the island needed cleaning

  • 3 of 5

Although the location was ideal, beaches, quiet east end of island. Easy drive to Seaside market and Christianstead the house itself needed some attention. It was somewhat unkept...bathrooms needed a good cleaning and the whole house needed a good dusting and vacuuming. There were dirty dishes in the cupboards and dirty hair brushes left behind in the bathrooms. Wish it wasn't so b/c we really enjoyed St Croix and would definitely go back to the island again.

Comfortable and Roomy!

  • 5 of 5

This is a genuine family home that comfortably accommodated our family for the week of our special event. What a wonderful place to have my daughter's wedding dinner. Brilliant open-design circulated both fresh air and sociable people very well. The kitchen is well equipped; good sized fridge/freezer and plenty of storage for a week’s worth of food. The setting is quiet, with a beach nearby for a daily swim (or two) and the garden had some new local wildlife (a baby bird near the patio wall). The out-door rinse off was a good idea for us with all the time we spent in the salty water, and there is clothes line! This property could not have accommodated our needs any better. It was more than we had expected. We even enjoyed some authentic coconut / lime cocktails with extra thanks to local manager. It is a reasonable drive to area sights, and makes the best possible place to just chill out and relax.
