Overview

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 condo complex, Coakley Bay, is built on a steep hill, which makes the view of Buck Island and the surrounding Caribbean water unobstructed and amazing! There is a large pool, great restaurant (which is open seasonally), and even a beauty shop on site! 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!

The view never gets old

  • 5 of 5

One of the better vacation rentals we've had. Both Christie and her husband Chris are very nice folks, good communication throughout. Chris met us at the airport for our VERY delayed flight, and we followed him to the vacation condo in our rental car. Without that help, there's NO WAY we would have found the condo complex in the dark. St. Croix is DARK at night! The condo is comfortable and was plenty roomy for a family of 4. The AC in the bedrooms works well, and the near-constant ocean breeze through the upstairs living room keeps it plenty comfortable. The Wi-Fi has a solid connection with good speed. The number of channels on the TV was surprisingly good, actually better than most hotels and at my house (Hey it rained one day, we watched TV. It happens) The condo is very well supplied with towels, etc, and of a good quality. The rental is close enough to Christiansted to be handy, but far enough out to be nice and quiet. The pool is well maintained, of a good useable size and the "deep end" is about 7 feet. The ONLY caveat to this rental: If you have knee/hip issues (we don't) you may want to consider a different rental. The bedrooms are downstairs, and the trip to the swimming pool is a Stairmaster challenge. Other than that, you would be hard pressed to find a better rental at this price point on St. Croix. Don't miss the Sunday Brunch at Ziggy's just down the street. A well-done brunch coming out of a neighborhood convenience store is St. Croix in a nutshell.

Owner's Response: Hello! Thank you for taking the time to write, and what a great review! You are right. St. Croix is very dark at night. The roads are not well marked, which makes it tricky after a long day of travel. People get here very tired, and then to have to drive on the left becomes a challenge. That's why we meet every flight, and guid people - even during the daylight! Following someone is a good way to begin driving on the left. It sounds like the condo was very comfortable for you, even with being "grounded" for that rainy day. I can just see you on the balcony watching the rain showers moving over the water and Buck Island, while sipping a nice beverage. Sounds like a nice way to spend a rain shower! The owners really hope to make your stay as comfortable as possible, and have extras like beach chairs, beach umbrellas, coolers, etc. And, Chris and I do what we can to ensure that you have everything and lots of information about the island. We have lived here 14 years, and will tell you anything we know! I do hope you return to Azure View! We would love to welcome you back! There's got to be many things you did not see or do! Kind regards, Christie

Outstanding View

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much. The condo has an outstanding view that includes nearby Buck Island. The balcony faces east which allows for morning sun and is mostly shaded during the hottest part of the day when the sun is heading west. Being on the second level we kept the siding doors open and had a nice breeze flowing through the living area. The condo has a nice cheerful ocean themed décor. Our agent, Christie and her assistant were great and made us feel at home. We would definitely rent there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing your wonderful review! Taylor and I enjoyed meeting you both, and are very glad you enjoyed the condo. It sounds like you mostly used the condo for relaxing and enjoying the wonderful view and breeze. It is a bright and cheerful decor, which reminds you that you are in the tropics. Please return! We would love to welcome you back to Azure View and St. Croix! Christie

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this condo deserve more than just 5 stars. To say azure view was amazing is an understatement! We loved staying in the condo which feels like home and has amazing views. The pictures don't do any justice!! St Croix is also such a wonderful and amazing paradise everyone should aim to visit. Wish we had more time to explore!

Owner's Response: Hello, Ivette! Thank you for such a great review! Yes, the photos don't capture experiencing the view. It is truly amazing, especially for a condo! And, the condo has everything you need. Time after time we hear just how special it is - the view, how the breezes move through the condo, and how the owners have given so much thought to the comfort of their guests. Please return! We would love to welcome you and your family back! Kind regards, Christie

Owner's Response: Hi, Michael! We want you to return! Please do come back. The condo will be waiting for you, and I will do my best to come up with more things to recommend. And, there's always sitting on the balcony staring at the blue Caribbean sea. The view is amazing! Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The pictures just don't do justice to the experience. Christie

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

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

WHAT AN AMAZING PLACE!

  • 5 of 5

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!
