Overview

Frederiksted Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Br, 1 Bath 2nd Floor Waterfront Condo 2 Patios. Sleeps 2.

One of our Four beautiful Sunset Beach Condos, an absolutely perfect choice for your vacation, “Mermaid’s Balcony” is a waterfront condo located on Sunset Beach. It offers spectacular beach vistas, the relaxing sound of ocean waves and tropical island breezes. Truly paradise, this unit has it all: sunsets, snorkeling, relaxation, and privacy. It is an upper-level 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath condo on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Wake up every morning to crystal blue water and watch postcard sunsets in the evenings from your private, spacious balcony. Enjoy a walk on the beach, treasure hunting, or simply relax with your favorite beverage and a book on the gorgeous white sand beach just steps from your door. St Croix has some of the best snorkeling in the Caribbean and this beach is no exception. You will be amazed by your undersea adventures!

Just minutes from your beachside condo, you can enjoy Stand-up paddle boarding, jet skiing, horseback riding, scuba diving, hiking, kayaking, ATV tours, and bicycling. Also on Island is eighteen holes of the most beautiful and challenging golf in the Caribbean at Carambola Golf Club. This course was established in 1966 and designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. It is considered by many to be the finest course in the Virgin Islands.

Frederiksted is within walking distance, where you will find many local shops and restaurants. You can also enjoy a walk on the pier or a leisurely stroll along the waterfront. The pier is a great place to fish, swim, snorkel and dive or take a refreshing plunge into the sea! Regularly scheduled events on the West side of St. Croix include Sunset Jazz concerts, Wine Club and live music at most beach bars on Sundays. And the Carnival parades are not to be missed!

Diving in St Croix is exceptionally diverse. There is near-shore and beach diving, walls, reefs, pinnacles, wrecks and one of the most spectacular pier dives in the Caribbean, located just minutes from the condo. Buck Island, the only underwater National Park in America, is a short boat-ride away and is an international diving and snorkeling destination. No experience is necessary as they will teach you all you need to know for your first dive.

Spacious and convenient off street parking

About Cheryl Wooden

Our first trip to St Croix was in 1995. In 2006 after numerous trips to the Island, we decided to move from our Nations Capitol, Washington DC to the Island we love so much. We love our Island living, Sun, Sand, beautiful water and wonderful people.

Cheryl Wooden purchased this condo in 2013

Why Cheryl Wooden chose St. Croix

Prior to moving to the Island we made many, many trips to St Croix. Our family enjoyed our stay at the Sunset Beach condos and were very excited when we found out two units were for sale. We quickly bought them both and have since added three more. This is where we spend our days on the beach. We know you will enjoy it here as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

Wonderful snorkeling right out your door. Most days you will think you have your own private beach, a rare commodity these days. Every evening enjoy the best sunsets on the island. Family owned and operated, owners are on island. Your vacation is important to us.

Wonderful beach vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

It takes 30 seconds to walk to the beach! And no shoes necessary! The location is perfect for a relaxing vacation. The condo has everything you need, including wonderful owners! Dolphins swam by in the morning and sunsets were stunning in the evening. The ocean was nice for swimming and snorkeling. My husband and I walked to restaurants on either side of the condo and easily adapted to driving on the left side of the road. We plan to return in 2017! Thanks Cheryl for the hospitality!

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Nothing beats sunshine everyday and those sunsets breath taking! The unit had everything you could need, from beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, snorkel equipment, cooler to name a few. The unit was well equipped and nicely furnished! Renting a car is a must as the island has many things to do and see. We loved leaving the screen door open at night to feel the ocean breeze and listen too the waves crash on shore! I would go back tomorrow if I could! Loved this place!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The condo is just right for two people. The kitchen and bathroom were extremely clean. The kitchen had more than the basics as far as cooking utensils, pots and pans. The little ice make, in the freezer, was a Champ!

The Caribbean is just a few feet from the condo. Great little beach and the snorkeling was very good. The balcony is perfect. Waking up to the sound of waves hitting the beach and the view for the the FANTASTIC sunsets is second to none.

Fredericsted is a sleepy little town, most of the week. It really comes to life when the, moderate sized, cruise ship is in port. Keep this in mind because most of the eating establishments close about an hour or two after sunset. I'm sure with the longer days, spring and summer, most beach front places stay open longer.

Driving around the island isn't impossible but give yourself time. The speed limits are slow and a lot of roads are not on the tourist info maps. But no worries you can't get too lost. You're on an island.

Stay to the left!

Perfect Place to Unwind

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks during Christmas and New Year's and what a fabulous time. The balcony of our condo was much bigger than others I'd rented and we spent considerable time on the balcony just enjoying the beautiful water. We were so close to the beach we could throw a rock from the balcony into the water. With the limited number of units, we virtually had a private beach on many days. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed and it was a real plus to be so close (just steps) away from the beach. The sunsets were incredible and it was a real treat to watch the New Year's fireworks from the balcony. The island is very easy to navigate and we enjoyed seeing the rain forest. The people were very friendly and we can't wait to come back! If you enjoy the sand, sun, water and close proximity to where you stay, this place can't be beat. Shopping was 15 minutes away an easy to find. Cheryl checked on us during our stay to ensure everything was OK and the housekeeper came twice during our two weeks. I would strongly recommend this place if you're looking for a nice place to relax, decompress from work and enjoy the warm sunshine.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this lovely review, we believe St Croix is a "best kept secret" and The Pink Condos are a great place to enjoy the best sunsets on island. We actually stayed on this property prior to moving to St Croix and we LOVED the balcony for coffee in the morning and sunset beverage in the evening.

A little piece of heaven here on earth

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 10 each in our own condo. From the moment we arrived Deb and Cheryl went out of their way to make our visit was one to remember. The condos are well appointed and every detail is thought of from shampoo in the shower to complementary bug spray and sunscreen. The bed was very comfortable and the air in the bedroom blew cold each night making for an amazing nights sleep. We had a private balcony that was great to view the amazing sunsets each night and it was literally steps to our own "private beach". Not really private but it was rare to see anyone but us on it. They provided snorkel gear as well as beach towels. We could walk into town for meals each day if we wanted or stroll the other way for food at Rainbow Beach.

I would not hesitate to recommend this condo to anyone who wants to get away from it all and enjoy a beautiful view.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our 25th anniversary and we couldn't be happier that we did. Everything about this condo and beach were breathtaking. We felt like we were in our own little paradise. We loved the snorkeling right outside the condo. Didn't want to leave. Cheryl is a gem and is so patient and helpful.
