About the property

Azure View is a comfortable, relaxing, and clean 2 bedroom 2 1/2 bathroom condo.

Come to Azure View to relax, enjoy watching the sailboats glide past to Buck Island, and participate in all that St. Croix has to offer! We are certain that when you step onto the balcony of Azure View, you will exhale, and let your cares float away on the breeze! Azure View has all of the comforts of home, including a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, AC in the bedrooms, and everything (we hope) that will make your Caribbean vacation memorable. There are 2 bedrooms - one with a King-sized bed, and the second has twin beds which can also be made into another King bed.

The property is located on the east end of the island, and is less than 6 miles to Christiansted, where there are great shops, restaurants, and cultural and recreational activities. There are several beaches within a 10 minute drive!

About Christie Powers

We are lucky enough to be owners of this wonderful condo in St. Croix. We came, and fell in love with the island. When we are here, it feels like another world! Since we have our permanent residence in Maryland, the team of Christie and Chris Powers manage the property on St. Croix. They have been residents of St. Croix for over 10 years, and are eager to share with you all the local secrets that St. Croix has in store for you during your stay. We love St. Croix, and hope that you will, too.

Christie Powers purchased this condo in 2014

Why Christie Powers chose St. Croix

We chose St. Croix because of its laid back atmosphere, its beautiful beaches, sea views, incredible dive sites, and friendly people. Where else can you go and experience all of these amazing things without even having a passport? This Coakley Bay condo is our dream come true, and we want to share it with you! The fantastic view of Buck Island, the wonderful breezes, its east end location, and amenities are what sold us on this condo. It is comfortable, and has all of the comforts of home. The condo complex has a large pool, great restaurant, beauty shop, and even its own generator for the occasional power outages.

What makes this condo unique

The island is so diverse that you can spend one day on the west end beaches enjoying the lush tropical foliage, and then pass cactus on your way to the beaches on the east end. The diving and snorkeling opportunities also vary from the pier in Frederiksted to the coral reefs off Buck Island, to The Wall at Cane Bay, and several wrecks. The restaurants are locally owned and offer everything from cheeseburgers and fries to incredible seafood dishes. There is no shortage of activities on St. Croix. There are three golf courses, several dive shops, and businesses that charter fishing boats, provide snorkeling excursions, and tours of the various parts of the island. Come and enjoy our wonderful condo on the beautiful island of St. Croix!

Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

This was me and my wife's first visit to St Croix and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The condo has a perfect view, and I really liked the setup with the bedrooms downstairs. The location of the condo is great because the east end of isle is very nice. We snorkeled at Buccaneer's and Shoy's which is right up the road. Our main goal for our stay was relaxation, and this condo provided that nicely. We also enjoyed the swimming pool, and made some new friends at the condo complex. We will return next year to see more of the island, and will bring the kids now that we know we have a place to stay that can accommodate us so comfortably. Thanks for everything

Owner's Response: It warms my heart to know that you enjoyed yourselves so much, and that the condo met all of your needs! Sounds like it was a perfect vacation! It was a pleasure meeting you, and I would love to have you return with your kids. I hope you make this your island home away from home! Christie

Our stay was phenomenal! The location of the condo is ideal in every way. 10-15 minutes away from many beaches (all of which are public) and some amazing restaurants. We ate at Duggan's twice! The condo unit itself is well equipped with everything you may need and the view is absolutely breathtaking from both balconies. I am a condo owner at a beach front property in SC and definitely got some ideas from the way the homeowners keep their unit. We loaded the rental car on the 1st day with a cooler, umbrella, beach chairs and towels - all of which were already there in the condo - and just kept everything in the car for the week just in case we were in the mood to pull over impromptu and take in the scenery on any given day. I would most certainly go back to this nook of paradise and definitely book this exact condo again!!!

Owner's Response: I am delighted that you enjoyed the condo so much, and that everything you wanted was right there! The view is spectacular, which is hard to really show on the photos. I'm also happy that you explored so much. With the chairs, towels, cooler, and umbrella already in the car, you were ready at any time for a beach stop. And, as you say, all of the beaches on the island are public, so that could have happened at any time. We would welcome you back any time you get the urge to explore some more. There's so much to do, and so many beaches, that I am still exploring after living here 12 years!

Amazing views, adorable interior, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love Azure Blue condo! It's hard to in words or even photos to describe how beautiful the views from the balconies are, or how the trade winds feel as you're enjoying a drink overlooking the Caribbean. The description of what you're getting is fully accurate. The condo was clean and well appointed; everything we needed was there - from the appliances (especially great to have a washer/dryer) to kitchen utensils to beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers. The TV cabinet has several dozen DVDs the whole family can enjoy. The owners have put a lot of thought and care into making guests feel comfortable. I liked the layout of the cozy bedrooms being on a separate floor from the kitchen and living room; early-to-bed or late risers could sleep undisturbed while the rest enjoyed the living areas! You can watch the sunrise from both balconies. The view from the restaurant on site (the Cultured Pelican - very good food) overlooks the beautiful pool with famous Buck Island in the background. The condo grounds are beautifully landscaped; great to wander through for exercise. Christie, the property manager, was attentive and answered all our questions. Within 10-15 minutes from the condo we enjoyed the beaches at Green Cay, Teague Bay, Chenay Bay and Cramer Park. Make sure you go to Pt. Udall and do the wonderful hikes from Pt. Udall to East End Bay and Jack & Isaacs Preserve and Beach. This end of the island is stunning rugged coastline and very picturesque. Restaurants/bars we enjoyed within a 10-15 minute drive include Duggan's Reef, Cheeseburger in America's Paradise, Deep End Cafe, and Castaways. We found the whole island accessible and spent time sightseeing and shopping in both Christiansted and Frederikested. We drove through the rainforest to the North Shore where we watched the sunset at Cane Bay Beach. On the west end of the island, we spent time on Rainbow Beach and at the Beach Side Cafe. Every beach we visited was great for snorkeling. We were surprised to find out that the southwest tip of the island is the Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge, the location where the last scene of "The Shawshank Redemption" was filmed. I highly recommend this condo and would go back in a second!

Owner's Response: Hello! We would love to have you return; take you back in a second! I truly enjoyed meeting you and your friends. It's wonderful that you explored all over the island - from the west to the east, you really got around! Although you did see a lot, St. Croix has so much to offer! After living here 12 years, I am still discovering hidden coves where I am the only one on the beach. And, the cultural events are fun and lively! I'm so happy that you enjoyed the condo, too. It really has everything guests could want. The owners have given a great deal of thought and care about the experience of the guests. I love meeting people and telling them about our lovely island. Please do return! Christie, Property Manager

Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5

There weren't any reviews of this condo when we booked it earlier this year, so I relied on Christie, and we weren't disappointed. The condo was perfect for us (couple). Immaculately clean. Well stocked kitchen (which I wish we had used, but too many restaurants to try!), plenty of towels (beach towels too!) and of course, that azure view! We would go back in a second.

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful retreat on this beautiful island. Everything you need is here from beach gear to a well furnished kitchen. Bedrooms are comfortable and beaches and dining are just minutes away. Love that there is a washer and dryer here. Spend mornings watching the sun peak up over Buck Island and enjoying the breeze on the balcony. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others!

Wonderful views and spacious condo!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Azure View and found it to be a wonderful rental. The kitchen is beautiful and equipped with everything you need. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony with a cup of coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening, just enjoying the outstanding views. The condo is in a great location, convenient to East End restaurants as well as to Christiansted. Our flight to St. Croix was delayed and we arrived much later than anticipated, but Christie Powers went above and beyond, meeting us with a smile and getting us settled.

Owner's Response: Hello! It was so nice having you stay at our lovely condo! It is the perfect place to relax on those balconies with either coffee or wine, isn't it? I never tire of the fantastic view! You had such a long day of travel, what could I do but try to have it be a happy ending to your day? You are a wonderful couple, and I hope to see you again when you return to St. Croix, as I'm sure you will!
