Absolutely Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The first week of December my husband and I along with our bother and sister in law stayed in this unit.

Everything was wonderful; from the ease in getting in to the view off the balcony. It has been a while since we have had beachfront with a 180 degree view. You can relax on your balcony and watch the seagulls fight over the catch, the seaplanes taking off and landing around the bay.

Snorkeling in the area right in front of the condo was very good (especially after I found out about the man made reef in front of Colony Cove next door). I saw southern stingrays and two different spotted sea rays on multiple occasions; and because it is not too deep you were able to see them very well.

The condo was great. The bedrooms are spacious and the kitchen well equipped.

We will definitely be back. Talking about it already.

Great Place to Relax!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to St. Croix before so finding "Paradise Found" condo was perfect for us. We knew we needed to relax and escape from our busy, hectic lives and this was the perfect location. The condo was very nice - convenient - large enough for us and another couple to each have our own private bedrooms and bathrooms. The Brophys could not have been more pleasant and friendly to work with as this was our first time to use VRBO as we have always done time share in the past.

We spent a lot of time around the pool area which is very, very nice. We really enjoyed the swim up tables and seating in the pool!! There are two side trips we highly recommend - the island tour with Prince is worth every dollar spent. He covers the entire island - the tour of the Cruzan Rum Factory is a real hit!! Visit and share a drink with the "drunkin' pigs" and see and enjoy the history of St. Croix. Take in the crab races - an interesting experience - and be sure to spend the $2.00 to buy a crab to race!! We took a day/night trip to St. Thomas on the seaplane which was the highlight of our "tourist" experience portion. Taking off and landing in a plane on the ocean was such fun!!! We spent the night in St. Thomas, had a wonderful "date night" to Havana Blue Restaurant which is definitely 5 stars and enjoyed shopping in the many boutiques and shops right downtown while the husbands enjoyed the outdoor bars!!!!

We really loved the outdoor deck which is right on the beach - watching the sunrise - enjoying the sound of the ocean and just unwinding which is exactly what we had hoped for.

We were pleased with the condo and felt the price point was very good and well worth the money spent. If you are looking for partying and night life - Saint Croix is not your place - if you want to kick back and relax - it is an island in the sun to soak up!!!

awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

The entire vacation was wonderful. Working with the owners for the booking process was simple and they were always quick to respond. The Island is easy to navigate and the ride from the airport to the condo was a breeze. The Paradise Found condo is inviting, comfortable and well stocked with everything you need and in good working order. The unit was clean and the beds are comfortable. The view is incredible and we enjoyed morning coffee, snacks and dinners on the deck. We spent a few afternoons pool side and enjoyed gazing at the sugar mill and swimming in the free form pool. We used the BBQ for a few meals and loved being able to dine with an ocean view. Having the kayaks was a bonus and we enjoyed paddling out the reef. No matter where you are on the property the views are phenomenal. Hearing the ocean in every room was so soothing and relaxing, enhanced by the cooling ocean breeze. The owners, staff and facility make this a truly memorable vacation spot!

We are already looking at dates to return.

Could not have been better!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a lot of places in many locations and could not have been more pleased with our experience with this property, location and the whole experience. Everything is comfortable and all needs are met for a wonderful island experience, in a beautiful location. The owner is readily available to address any needs and provide guidance where needed. We will return and recommend highly to friends.

A Paradise that we could have only dreamed up having

  • 5 of 5

The property was an experience that we could have only imagined and then got to experience. This was our 50th Anniversary and we wanted to take a trip to an island that we had never visited. We have been to many Caribbean islands as well as Bermuda and by far this resort and more importantly the condo was exceptional. The unit was fully stocked with modern well maintained furnishings. We were told all that we needed to bring were our personal items all the other necessities would be there, and the owners were right.

Weather you are at the beach or by the sugar mill poolside area, you were always able to enjoy the tropical trade-winds of the Caribbean sea. The island offered snorkel adventures to view all the underwater beauty as well as great restaurants to dine inside or out.

Without a doubt this was the best vacation at a fabulous resort.

Thank you and hope the next guest there has as nice a time.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately unbeknownst to us the beach authority, came in one day during this guests stay and replenished and reshaped the beach area and our guests felt inconvenienced. We are very sorry that this had to happen during their stay. However the end result is that the beach is in great shape .If we had known in advance that this work was to be done we would have alerted our guests and would have made arrangements for them to visit another beach.
