2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Beautiful Condo newly remodeled
About Shawn Bender
I live in San Antonio Texas and owned this property for about 4 years. I have met a lot of great people in Mill Harbor. St Croix is a wonderful oasis with friendly people and less touristy than other islands. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about Mill Harbor or the island.
Shawn Bender purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Shawn Bender chose Estate Golden Rock
Mill Harbour is a safe gated property close to downtown Christiansted with great groundskeepers that keep the property in top shape. The staff is wonderful and extremely friendly. A putting green was recently added for golf afficionards. Our beach is great with a nice breeze and calm waters inside the reef for snorkeling. (We have snorkle gear available to use during your stay).
What makes this Condo unique
I found this treasure when we were looking for an ideal vacation spot to enjoy for years to come. The locals are the friendliest in the Carribean. St Croix is a hidden gem, not as touristy as other islands. It truely is 'Island Time' all the time.

Love it. Was a very nice place!
This place was very nice. Close to everything. Clean and had everything we needed.
My husband and I were very surprised and disappointed when we entered the condo. Many of the photos on the site do not match what we saw. We should have been told that the condo is in a state of being remodeled/repaired. There were cans of paint in plain sight, globs of spackle of the floor, and a newly sheet rocked but unpainted wall. A kitchen outlet had no cover plate (dangerous!). An entire wall of kitchen cabinets aren't there now, making it very inconvenient to get on our knees to access the dishes and pots and pans in 2 low cabinets. There are no doors on any closets. The sheers on the bedroom windows offer no privacy whatsoever (people walking by can see in as this is a ground level condo). In this condition, the condo has a 'cheap', low class vibe. If we had been made aware of the 'work in progress' condition, we would not have rented it at this time. We were not told the security code to enter the complex or that we had to register our stay at the office. On a positive note - the grounds are very nice, the beach and pool areas are never crowded, the bar & restaurant are convenient.
I generally appreciate feedback.
Since the comments will misrepresent my property, I would like to clarify.
The island was hit by Cat5 Hurricane Maria and left the island devastated (FEMA workers are still on the island trying to do restoration), many home still don't have roofs. The reason I bring this to the attention of my future guests is that labor and supplies are still hard to come by on the island. I had a contractor leave the renovation work half finished and the shelves I ordered to replace the cabinets I removed took almost a year to get. Most guests have been understanding and enjoy the beautiful island.
My condo is fully functional and I'm working to finish the kitchen renovation, (it's just aesthetics at this point)
It should also be noted I have all new beds with top of the line mattresses.
I have also bought top of the line AllClad cookware.
To my future guests, I would hope you would contact me if you are not satisfied with your stay. #islandlife
Great place. Great location
Perfect location to explore the island. Beaches close, 2 min. to town, less than 30 min. to each end of the island. Conda was clean and had everything we needed. Mattresses seemed new and were comfortable. Kitchen has some new upgrades. Plenty of room. Can see some hurricane damage but looks like new flooring and continues to upgrade. I will be returning.
I had a great week. I plan to retire to St Croix and could easily live in that condo.
Great place for family vacation
My family really enjoyed staying at this condo. Shawn answered all my questions quickly. The unit itself is fully furnished, even including beach towels and snorkeling equipment. It is about a two minute walk to the beach, and there are several beaches within walking distance. There is a restaurant in the property and another within walking distance. The only negative thing is that the WiFi isn’t very strong in the unit - but it is stronger by the pool.
The PERFECT Condo and Location!
What a blast we had in St. Croix! Shawn's condo was the perfect place for our stay. The newly remodeled kitchen was a nice touch but the best thing was the location. Right in the middle of the island so we could easily get to either end of the island.
The beach there and amenities were nice and so handy. Pool toys, blender and spacious condo were all bonuses. We even found the laundry at the condos and that was VERY handy for those of us who travel light.
Thank you Shawn for the use of your wonderful condo. It was a gem and a perfect fit for our stay!
Thank you for the review!
So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to host you again in the future.
