You don't need a passport to go from the US, just a driver's license or any US i.d. and your on your way. Throw a couple of pairs of shorts, a couple of tops, a bathing suit and your sandals in a bag and you'r ready to go.
The US Virgin Islands are truly America's Paradise. Average daily temperature in Feb. is 82; average daily temperature in July is 84; what's not to like. Beautiful beaches, great water sports, a Robert Trent Jones, Sr. golf course, and beautiful sun drenched tropical gardens of flowers and more flowers.
And nothing beats having your own home away from home with all the amendities you could want. You can eat every meal out, or buy local fish from Cruzian fisherman that sell it from there boats; then grill it at the outdoor gas grille by the pool.

Twenty-seven years ago, my wife and I wanted to get away for 'just a week' but we didn't want to chance a cold spell in Florida. And we didn't want to leave the safety of the USA. So we traveled to the USVI, St. Croix. Knowing nothing about our destination except it was in the Virgin Islands, we discovered a lifestyle change that has lasted and will continue to last for our entire life.
Why did we chose St. Croix for our home away from home after vacationing there two years in a row? The one overriding reason was the people. The friendliness of the people and the great weather, coupled with the pace of life on the island, slow and slower, make it the ideal get away spot. You MUST say hello or good morning/afternoon/evening to all the locals and everyone with whom you come in contact or pass on the street. It is considered very rude not to do this. When you do, you will be rewarded with a wide smile and friendly return of the greeting in almost every case. The local Crucian people are wonderful. I can't tell you how gracious and helpful they will be to you.
When you drive on island, you will be amazed that everyone stops to let everyone else out of shopping malls, and side streets. Then you get a 'honk' to acknowledge your kindness. So don't forget to 'honk' when someone lets you into traffic or to turn in front of them. After over 28 years, it still amazes me.
Because the restaurants are all very casual and our having a full size washer and dryer in the unit, you can often pack a carry-on with bathing suit and a few things for a weeklong stay or longer. We had a family of four adults (mom, dad, and two grown daughters) that did exactly that. Getting into and out of airports easily with no baggage fees is a pleasure.
My family and I enjoyed our stay at this beautiful condo. We loved sitting on the patio every morning and night enjoying the cool sea breeze with beautiful views! Thanks Lynda for sharing your beautiful home!
I recently stayed with my fiance and his mom for 5 nights at the condo and it was perfect for us. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms was very convenient, the balcony was perfect, there was ice in the freezer, towels in closet (beach towels at the front desk whenever you need them) and all of the kitchen amenities you need!
The restaurant next door is the Golden Rail and it's awesome! The people that work there are so nice (especially Regina!) and the food was the best that we found (ate at Breezes and Rum Runners but Golden Rail beat them both)! Pizzas were amazing and so was the lobster and conch. We love local places that have a local flavors so if you enjoy more Americanized food then you may prefer the other restaurants that I mentioned.
Taxi service is few and far between but Big John was awesome (got his name and number from the folks at Golden Rail). Sounds like renting a car is best but if you don't plan to venture out much go ask them for his number and he will take care of you.
We did the Big Beard Buck Island tour and that was great - nice people. Other than that we were at our beach by the condo or at the pool, relaxing and soaking in the sun!
This is HOME away from HOME. I arrived in St. Croix with a bunch of ideas as to how to spend my time on the island. When I checked in and saw the property grounds, I didn't want to do ANYTHING but spend time there. Nice little slice of beach, 2 great pools, Bar, Restaurants (Perfect). As far as the actual condo, It's geared up with everything you could ask for. We packed light and did Laundry in the unit. We used the blender for banana daiquiris. We prepared breakfast daily and ate on the balcony overlooking the water. If you are someone like me that will spend HOURS trying to find something perfect...STOP....you've found it.
My husband and I enjoyed our winter break in St. Croix. The condominium was perfect for what we wanted, which was a place where we could walk to the ocean, to restaurants, to hear music and to basically relax and enjoy being on the island. Having a rental car allowed us to explore the entire island, and to learn about the local history. We did cook a couple of dinners in, as well as enjoyed eating out and taking in the local flavor of St. Croix. Yes, we would come back, and thank you Lynda, for sharing your home with us.
This was our first trip to St Croix and our first vacation that was over 10 days- we rented from Lynda and George for 4 weeks. We did NOT want to leave! The condo had everything you could ever need- and was clean and comfortable. The location was perfect with 2 good restaurants a quick walk down the beach and an easy drive to any place on the island. We rented a car to do lots of sightseeing and dining out- for such a small island we never got bored! Toured the botanical gardens, several plantations, the rum factory, the fort in Christianstead, and were awed by the beautiful vistas and beaches all over the island. The condo's beach and pool were lovely and the people were very friendly. We snorkeled at the condo's beach and throughout the island- don't miss Buck Island! Security staff were friendly and we always felt completely safe. We have been to many places in the Caribbean- I'm glad we chose this condo as our home-away-from-home to explore St Croix. We especially liked that Lynda checked in with us when we arrived to be sure everything was to our liking- it is clear that they really care about their renters' satisfaction. We would absolutely stay here again!!
This is a beautifully decorated (snazzy new bathrooms) condo located to take best advantage of scenery and ocean breezes (we never turned on the AC). Spacious balcony, great ceiling fans in every room. Nearby restaurant "Salud" is a reliable delight. We always make a trip out to "Cheeseburgers in Paradise", and have New Year's Eve dinner at "The Galleon". Friendly condo community, always some interesting European renters.
You rise almost every morning to a fabulous sunrise coming over the island from the east. You can drive (on the left) all over the island to enjoy magnificent beaches; snorkeling and scuba; night scuba diving at the pier in Fredericksted; sailing to and snorkeling at the only underwater national park in the US parks system, Buck Island; you can go on eco-hikes to natural mineral hot baths; at the right time of year, you can arrange to see the sea turtles nest at Sandy Point; you can fish and grille the catch at the pool; eat out at a plethora of great restaurants; play golf at the Robert Trent Jones, Sr. golf course or the Buccaneer with it's fabulous views; you can drive to Point Udall and stand on the furthest Eastern point of the United States of America; you can drive into the rain forest and visit the beer-drinking pigs; you can go into downtown Christiansted and shop at the duty free shops and the wonderful art galleries full of art from local and famous artists; you can take the Sea Plane from downtown Christiansted to Charlotte Amalie Harbor on St. Thomas and spend the day there, shopping and eating; or just plop-down by the pool or beach and soak in the warm Caribbean sun.
You get the best of all worlds at our condo. While being an Ocean Front Property with all the amenities of your home at your fingertips in a gated community, you are on an island in the Caribbean with all the fun and sun things to do; being in the United States, the USVI has all the 'comforts' of home, but you only need a US driver’s license or other valid i.d. not a passport to travel here. You can literally walk a few blocks to the main road to find grocery stores the same as a Giant or Kroger; McDonalds; Subway; KFC: Fitness Centers; etc.
As you will see from reading our VRBO reviews, we go to great lengths to make your stay at our condo an enjoyable one. Thank you for considering our 'home away from home' for your vacation destination. We hope to hear from you.
