Overall impression was good. The view was unbelievebly beautiful!
My girlfriend and I took our first trip to the Caribbean and had the luxury of staying at Kathryn's Joy. We were blown away by this little piece of paradise on the ocean front. The condo was extremely well kept and clean and certainly maintained. We were provided with all of the essentials to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The kitchen was well equipped and there was an abundance of clean bath towels and beach towels. We loved the overall feel of the condo, the furnishings and decorations were very complimentary to the island vibe. There was plenty of storage for clothes and belongings and a large closet in the master bedroom with a bunch of hangers. The patio furniture was very comfortable and awesome to sit back and watch the sunset or have a meal with a terrific view. Buck island is in clear sight and we couldn't get over the crashing waves feet from the condo. At night time the patio was great for star gazing. We had an amazing ocean breeze that kept the place nice a cool through out the day and night. This made up for not having any air conditioning and we loved constant sound of the ocean. The condo property has a pool and a private beach to sun bathe. The ground staff was very helpful, informative and gave us great advice on things to do. The owner of the condo unit, Joe Hansen, was also very nice and he answered all the questions we had and was extremely accommodating. We loved the fact that the property was centrally located to all of the activities we wanted to try. We went snorkeling at Buck Island above the Great Barrier Reef. We also went on a bioluminescent bay tour in see through kayaks to see the water light up. Less than a 15 minute drive away from all of these places, the super market, and plenty of places to eat, we were very pleased with our location on the island. Overall we had an amazing experience, can't wait to come back, and would highly recommend staying at Kathryn's Joy.
You can't get any closer to the ocean without getting in it!! Beautiful views from the patio. Comfortable patio furniture! We spent most of the time while we were in the condo on the patio. The condo was super clean and had everything needed to cook. We ate 2 meals at the condo everyday and 1 meal at a restaurant. The condo is located in close proximity to groceries, gas, and restaurants. The owner, Joe, gives any information you may need on the island. The recommendations of places to eat was spot on. The food was great! We loved every place we ate. Follow Joe's recommendations and you can't go wrong. Rowdy Joe's near Cane Bay had great food--try the fish tacos. "You are Here" restaurant in Christiansted had the best pizza and also shrimp corndawgs. They do not taste like your typical corndogs (which we both hate). They are shrimp on a skewer with an awesome jalapeno breading with sauce to dip it in that tastes great! The Monday night buffet at the Palms (a short walk down the beach) had great BBQ, coleslaw, potato salad and beans to name a few items. We did experience trouble with the refrigerator as soon as we got there, but the response was immediate and it was taken care of. The only reason we didn't rate the condo 5 stars was because it didn't have air conditioning. In our opinion, it's not needed most of the time due to the breezes from the ocean and the multiple fans in the condo. However, it did get a little humid on some afternoons and air conditioning would have been nice. We will recommend this condo to our friends and family. Thanks Joe!
This condo is right on the ocean! It is exactly as described on the VRBO website. Pros: Very clean, plenty of towels, 4 ice trays filled in the freezer, good water pressure and hot water for showers. There was supplies like garbage bags, paper towels, toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, soap....plenty for the week!!!! Many little extras such as salt and pepper, some condiments and odds and ends that I'm sure were left by past tenants - stuff that came in handy. We did the same and left some good stuff (rum / wine/ butter/coffee...) for the next tenants. We loved are time on the patio watching the surf, surfers, horses in the water, kitesurfers, snorkelers (at the Palms) sailboats and fishing boats. The chairs are comfortable and some of us had a few nice little naps on the lounger. You have a beautiful sunrise every morning and also a great view of Buck Island. We kept the screened windows open at night and shut the patio door since there wasn't a screen on it. There are ceiling fans and 3 standing fans available to use. Nice Pool.
This location was really great for getting around the entire island. It is so centrally located.
Con: No air conditioning - Yes there are plenty of fans. If you don't like air conditioning then this is the place for you. But if you like to stay in a nice 70-74 degrees then pick another unit with air conditioning.
Other info:This condo unit is gated - you have to use a key to get from the parking lot to your unit and another to access the beach. We had a little trouble the first 2 days finding our way around because the road signs are limited and sometimes confusing. By the 3rd day we had it mostly figured out.
Our favorite things on the Island of St. Croix: Night time snorkeling with Chuck from The Palms(walking distance). ROWDY JOES Rest. LOVED IT went 3 times! The food on this island is amazing! La Reines Chicken, The Palms (Monday night Caribbean night with a show)The Waves for a special dinner out (reservations)specular sunset and view, The Deep End Bar at Tamarind - really fun bar, beach and snorkel. Buck Island with Capt. Carl (Capt. Heinz) aboard the Teroro ll - less people and more time (9-2 $75.00) out of Tamarind Marina. Virgin Kayak Tours for a night kayak tour of biobay. They have paddle kayaks and we had fun with them(very relaxed and informative). We also really enjoyed our lunch in Frederiksted at Beachside Cafe. They have a great view(wish that we would've went back for sunset).
We had a wonderful stay, escaping the cold Midwest for the lovely island of St. Croix. The condo was lovely, and even though there was no air conditioining, we opened up the windows and were cooled by the ocean breezes all day and night. The condo has a view that can't be beat - only feet from the waves. Everything that you need is there right down to big fluffy, white towels. The complex has a beautiful pool, and the location is convenient to the major roads, but is back far enough to feel very private. A very enjoyable stay.
