St. Croix Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (sleeps 6-8) On Two Floors.

Completely renovated 1,800 square foot Penthouse condo with gorgeous views of the ocean and surrounding island. The condo is just steps from the beautiful Caribbean Sea and a large pool complete with a cabana and lounge chairs.

On the top floor, the master bedroom has a king-sized bed, a master bath with walk-in shower and a large, beautifully furnished gallery (porch) with gorgeous ocean views. Also on the top floor is a loft with a queen sleeper sofa. On the main floor there are two bedrooms (each with queen beds), 1.5 baths, remodeled kitchen, dining/living room with soaring ceilings and another large, beautifully furnished gallery. The renovation included porcelain tile floors throughout, totally new bathrooms, mahogany staircase and a custom kitchen. The two large covered galleries offer space for dining, reading, napping, grilling or just enjoying the sun and sea from this very special spot.

Everything you need is included – linens, beach towels, completely equipped kitchen, washer/dryer in unit, wireless internet, cable TV.

Our stretch of the sea is a protected coral reef, great for long walks, lounging in beach chairs and beach combing. A few steps down the beach is great swimming and snorkeling. St. Croix is famous for diving and snorkeling. Kayaking is minutes away with phosphorescent night trips available. There are two restaurants/pubs just next door within walking distance. Our huge pool is newly renovated and purified without chlorine or saline. There is also a hot tub available.

This penthouse condo feels like a standalone villa – private, quiet, with secluded gallery areas. Pelican Cove is one of the top condo communities in St. Croix with immaculate 5-acre grounds and attentive staff.

St. Croix boasts gorgeous beaches- available for all to use, terrific restaurants often with live music, excellent golf courses, the nation’s largest underwater park for snorkeling, botanical gardens, historic ruins and museums, and miles of hiking. You do not need a passport, just a driver’s license, to visit the Island as it’s a U.S. territory.

Why Frances Harris chose St. Croix

Pelican Cove has it all-- beach, pool, hot tub, two bars and two restaurants you can walk to just down the beach. The pool has a new technology filtration system so no chlorine and no salt! the pool is never crowded and there's nearly always a chair waiting for you on the beach. The biggest problem you face is whether to stay at the condo and enjoy all the luxuries inside and out or venture out to see all of the wonderful sites of the island.

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

We feel very lucky to have stayed in this fantastic condo. Frances was extremely easy to deal with throughout the process and the instructions on getting in and out are very clear. the condo was very well stocked, more so than any place we have stayed in the past and we have stayed at many. We had two families for a total of 7 people and had plenty of room to spread out. The view was excellent when we were there. We mainly went around the island daily and spent very little time at the condo during the day. 20 minutes to just about everywhere on the island so centrally located. Grocery close, Christiansted close, airport close enough. Thanks for an excellent week!

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

We had two couples that stayed in the Penthouse at Pelican Cove. There is plenty of room. The condo was nice and spacious with everything you need. The balcony was nice and big too, plenty of room to relax with a drink and enjoy dinner. There is a second floor balcony as well off of the Master, great view! (Be careful not to lock yourself out). The condo is on the 3rd floor, no elevator, so be prepared to walk the stairs. The condo mostly overlooks the pool, which is very nice, but you can also see the ocean without a doubt. Unfortunately, we didn't spend a lot of time at the Beach at the condo as it is pretty rocky. We did spend a day at the beach and had several meals next door at The Palms. We were there in February and the mosquitoes are pretty bad, be sure take along some bug spray, even for sitting on the balcony. The location is great! Close to Christianstead and anything on the north side of the island.

The AT&T cell service on the island was great, Verizon was non-existent.

I would definitely stay here again!!

Gorgeous condo, great owner, awesome family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue. We own 2 VRBO homes and use VRBO to plan our vacations. I know how important the online reviews can be for both vacationer and homeowner so I wanted to be sure to write about our positive experience with the owner, Frances, and her lovely condo. Six of us (our family of 4 with 2 teen boys plus my father and his wife) visited St. Croix for the first time and spent a week in this spacious and immaculate condo during our Easter spring break. Honestly, the pictures don’t do justice to the size and beautiful décor of this home. Frances was very responsive and accommodating throughout the rental process. As another reviewer mentioned, you can tell when owners use their property and their guests do benefit because the home is well stocked with everything that is needed to enjoy your “vacation home away from home.” The condo was very clean, comfortable, and roomy for our 2 separate families. The unit is located on the top level on the opposite side from the stairs so there is no walk by traffic on the balcony space that leads to the front door entry. We loved hanging out on the comfy furniture on both lanai/patio spaces and there was always a wonderful breeze blowing - weather was perfect! Electricity is expensive so we were mindful and used AC only while sleeping a few times. We got a nice breeze through the living areas by using ceiling fans and keeping the doors and windows open. The condo complex is very nice and well maintained. The beach area out front is a little rocky and you don’t have long stretches of beach to walk but we didn’t mind since the pool area is gorgeous and there are other beaches within easy driving distance to visit. There is more of a sandy beach at the The Palms hotel next door, however, we preferred some of the other beaches we visited. It is nice, too, having the hotel restaurant/bar right next door if you don’t feel like driving and/or cooking in. We did make meals in and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The location of the condo is good as it is centrally located to access other areas of the island and very close to grocery stores and Christiansted. I was surprised and appreciative at how “un-crowded” St. Croix (and this condo complex) felt during a peak holiday vacation week. We travel a lot and there are many places that we want to visit but we would love to come back and see more of St. Croix. Would definitely rent Frances' home again and highly recommend to others!

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation! The pictures of the penthouse condo do not do it justice. It was exceptionally maintained and had everything we needed. The location was convenient to dining, shopping, and activities. We would definitely recommend to others and this is where we will return to when we come back!

Great Condo and Location for Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in St. Croix was awesome, and the" Caribbean Dream" condo added to the great time.The condo has all the necessary amenities for your stay. Plenty of room with three bedrooms with comfortable beds, two large decks with great views of the beach, and a nice kitchen with all the necessary items to cook your own meals. A great pool and hot tub. Centrally located near Christiansted for shopping and restaurants, diving and Buck Island excursions. The owner responses quickly with any information needed, and is easy to work with.

I highly recommend Pelican Cove and the Caribbean Dream Condo !!

Great Place!!!

  • 4 of 5

The place was lovely. There was enough space for everyone and the amenities were great. My family and friends enjoyed the comfy beds, well appointed kitchen and especially the huge dining room table which was used for playing the wide selection of available games. The views and sea breezes, pool access and myriad seating areas were the icing on the cake at this sweet place. I would definitely recommend for those with full mobility. :)

St. Croix is the largest and most diverse of the USVI with extremely friendly people. It is not completely focused on tourism yet there is a wealth of activities. It’s an easy vacation to arrange – no passports required for US citizens, English is spoken everywhere, the dollar is the local currency. Driving is on the left, but there are ample signs to help you get started. The condo is a great place to decompress and relax, to be with family or to entertain friends. The space lends itself to both private times and group activities. The staff at Pelican Cove is friendly, competent, and responsive. Welcome!
