Beautiful Oceanfront Suites on a Private Island

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Enjoy your very own suites in America's paradise.

Located at the tip of a private island, the suites offers breathtaking views of Christiansted Harbor, Historic Fort Christiansvaern, and Downtown Christiansted.

The suites have granite floors, granite countertop, and granite bathroom with Italian marble tile. Let the natural ocean waves lull you to sleep. Enjoy the Caribbean trade winds from your balcony.

There is a beautiful white sand beach on site, as well as a restaurant, bar, and water sports center. These are St. Croix's best kept secret and are only minutes away from the airport and is located across from the historic district of Downtown Christiansted. The location is so fabulous it is close to shops, restaurants, nightlife and the popular Christiansted boardwalk where you can wave hello to family and friends through the live, real time web cam located at the corner of the boardwalk. Close to everything, a car is not necessary, although taxis are close by if desired.

The island is rich in culture, history and art with museums, the famed Cruzan Rum factory and tons of things to do. St Croix is the biggest and best of the US Virgin Islands, and no passport is required. I have 2 suites available for rent. Do not delay, reserve one of these great oceanfront suites today. Email or call me 24 hours a day.

I love the US Virgin Islands. It is truly America's paradise. I have another property advertised on VRBO, and wanted to add this one to share it with you as well. I love visiting St Croix. It is a beautiful place.

LARRY purchased this cottage in 2007

Why LARRY chose Christiansted

I purchased a vacation rental in this location because the US Virgin Islands is a fantastic Caribbean destination. The dollar is used here, and the official language is English. The average temperature is 86 degrees year round and I love the fact that I can offer the Caribbean experience, while under the protection and security of the US flag.

What makes this cottage unique

Enjoy swimming in the warm ocean waters, and lounging on the white sand beach. Viewing the swaying palm trees and enjoying exotic birds and wildlife. Shopping in local shops provide a great opportunity to see new and exotic things. A lot of great restaurants and island attractions are in close proximity to the property. You can do as much or as little as you want.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location. I love coming back here, and I come back to this same place 2-3 times a year. It is my favorite spot, and the owner is so easy to deal with.

Peaceful escape

  • 5 of 5

The unit is right off the water with beautiful sunrise views. The island offers great snorkeling right there and the giant iguanas kept things interesting! We arrived to a clean, welcoming environment. I hope to return in the future.

Great views, snorkeling around island

  • 4 of 5

Best suited for 2 guests as living space is small but gorgeous views all around! Some light boat traffic which adds interest. Not a lot of counterspace in the kitchen and no oven just stovetop, suggest eating out instead. Snorkeling can be done around the island. Check to make sure the restaurant/bar at the hotel is working, we stayed after Maria and due to damage it was closed. The forced us to take the short ferry to get food where it would have been nice to stay put. Overall highly recommend especially if you want views and relaxation!

Best trip to the island!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I come to the island once a month. We are so happy we found this ocean front condo.

Renting the unit was very simple. The owner(Larry) was very responsive and attentive to our needs.

The house itself is the old harbor master's home which has been divided into two units. Our unit was a one bedroom with a full bathroom, closet, kitchen/sitting room and patio. The unit faces the east and has a great breeze. The bedroom has an air conditioner which can cool the room quickly if desired. We enjoyed the ferry ride to and from the island and we had plenty of access to the waterfront restaurants and shopping.

This location and appt served our needs completely. We definitely will be back. We've found a quiet place to stay!

Thank you Larry!

Owner's Response: You are welcome ( literally ) ! Thank you for your 5 Star Review. I am elated to hear that it was your " Best trip to the island ! ", especially since you come to the island so often. That is so great, and it is very nice to hear that. I am so glad that you are happy that you found my place. Yes, I do try to make the rental process simple and enjoyable. I want you to have a great experience from beginning to end ( and even after that ). I look forward to you coming back again soon. As always, I will be standing by to help you.

Superb Location

  • 3 of 5

St. Croix is a great island made better by the location of this property. The access to restaurants, Christiansted & all activities are quick and easy. Riding the ferry is a fun part of the experience.

The porch was perfect with great views and privacy. Sometimes, we didn't even want to leave it.

Living spaces were adequate and not a disappointment. The kitchen area lacks preparation space, so we just ate out!

Not fancy, but cozy with Caribbean charm. For the price, it was a great value and we look forward to coming back.

Owner's Response: Thank you Karen for your stellar review. Yes, my place is quite unique, and in an excellent location, close to bars, restaurants, beach, attractions, etc. Yes, riding the ferry is a fun and beautiful part of the experience ( and a short, 60 second ride ). I am so glad to see you write about what a great value my place is...........I wholeheartedly agree that it is a great value, superb location and "quick and easy" to all activities. Don't forget that beautiful blue green Caribbean water, that the unit hangs over ! As you wrote , it is " cozy with Caribbean charm ", and I am glad to hear that you "look forward to coming back ". I look forward to you coming back as well to enjoy my special hidden gem.

I am a return guest, and keep coming back to this oceanfront paradise. Since my last visit, it is nice to see how the owner LARRY keeps upgrading the units. The owner, LARRY is always very responsive to questions, and is easy to communicate with. He is very responsive at all times. I stayed in the sister suite, which has phenomenal wide, wrap around waterfront views. When you open the door to the suite, you literally can see amazing blue green water and beautiful oceanfront views all around you. LARRY has upgraded this suite to include a new coffee maker and a brand new microwave ( I saw the new tags on it ), new balcony furniture cushions, brand new edge gutter, as well as freshly painted balcony, and a freshly painted front door / front facade. The unit is fresh and beautiful with a comfortable bed, and a nice flat screen TV, Dish network satellite service with Sirius radio, and blue tooth radio to stream your music from your cell phone. Recent upgrades include nice LED candles, with a programmable timer that turn themselves on and off, decorative room adornments and labels for the light switches (this is a nice detail and very helpful ). I have stayed in this unit before and am pleased that LARRY the owner really keeps updating it, which shows that he cares a lot about the place. I highly recommend this special and unique place for both the phenomenal location as well as the great host that LARRY is. It is a great value and a place that you will always remember.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5 Star Perfect Review. It is wonderful that you noticed all of the recent upgrades that I have made. Especially the " little special touches " that make my place different from the rest. I try my best to keep my place fresh and new for my guests. I agree with you that the views are absolutely amazing ( "phenomenal wide, wrap around waterfront views" as you so aptly put it in your above review ). You can do as little or as much as you want, and the beautiful, white sand beach is literally just down the path from your unit. Plenty of good restaurants and bars close by as well as museums, water activities, cultural events and Caribbean beauty. My place does have a special and unique location, and the US Virgin Islands is a great location in that there is no passport required as it is in the United States. I normally do not request reviews, which is why it is so nice that so many happy guests have wrote so many wonderful things about my place. I feel that being directly over the beautiful Caribbean water helps to make anyone feel happy ! It is so nice to have you as a repeat guest. I look forward to you coming back, and I am confident that you will continue to enjoy my oceanfront paradise. I look forward to sharing my hidden gem with more fantastic guests like you, and hopefully they will keep coming back as well.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this amazing cottage for our honeymoon. We wanted privacy but still close to everything. Upon arrival we were doubting our choice as we made the trek up the hill to our cottage, but once there it was worth the hike! It is not part of the hotel, so be aware that the ferry should cost the guests staying in the cottage. Miss Mary was very accommodating and it all worked out. Larry, the owner, was great to deal with, responded promptly and answered all questions. This was our first visit to St. Croix and we will be back and definitely will stay here again! This stay made great memories to cherish forever. Nothing negative to say!
