Paul & Rachelle Tomlinson purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Paul & Rachelle Tomlinson chose Christiansted
We've spent years searching for a desirable location with lots of sunshine & warm weather. We chose St. Croix because of the beautiful tropical climate of 80 + degrees year round, fabulous assortment of uncrowded crystal clear water beaches with natural settings, less developed island landscape, and relaxed stress free life style. We traveled to many carribean locations, but St. Croix was a unique experience for us.
What makes this Condo unique
We fell in love with Schooner Bay & the Christiansted area because of its close location to everything. Our condo has amazing harbor & ocean views - day and night from every room, including the master shower. We LOVE stepping right out our door to enjoy the private palm tree lined tropical oasis outside living area with water views. Our end unit provides the convenience of being right next to the crystal clear clean pool so we can jump in and cool off all day & night. We LOVE being able to walk to several restaurants & bars including No Bones, Maria's Cantina, the coffee bistro, Miriam's, Seaside Market, Sharkey's, SeaVIEW, Nauti Bar & Grill, and the Downtown Christiansted boardwalk restaurants, bars, shops, & art galleries.

The View alone was worth the price of admission
Just back from a 6-day stay at this wonderful property! It was our first visit to St Croix, and from the day we booked, the owners couldn't have been more helpful in our planning. They not only sent us great ideas of things to see and do, but responded to all our questions with helpful thoughts and options. Their super-friendly manager Mike, picked us up at the airport as promised, drove us to the condo and got us settled in, with a promise that he would answer any questions or concerns giving us his number to text. The owners really thought to provide anything we could have needed, including suntan lotions, shampoo...any amenity you might need, they have waiting. Mike had the ingredients for our Pina Coladas in the fridge - including a whole bottle of Cruzan rum! Best pool ever with the same killer view was right outside our door (up a little flight of steps, which give all the privacy you could ask for). We were there off season and had the pool to ourselves all days of our stay, except one afternoon when we shared with a nice young family. Every evening we sat out on the patio enjoying the comfy chairs, the view and the breeze as the sun went down. The evening we arrived (before we had the rental car) we hiked to Seaside Market (15ish minute walk). They have a nice selection of wines and cheeses - a bit pricey, but good location. Note: they do not provide grocery bags, everyone knows to bring their own. We weren't aware of the custom, so I emptied out my shoulder bag from the flight and we carried the groceries home that way! Also, the hot buffet there is only available for breakfast and lunch. Highly recommend a rental car (Judi of St Croix) which they delivered to the condo the morning after we arrived. Although driving on the left with steering wheel on the left took a bit of getting used to, we ventured out to beaches around the island every day of our stay. There is a big binder in the condo with tons of helpful information including maps and menus from several local restaurants. The brochure we found most helpful is called St Croix Explorer 2019 Road Map. It includes a pretty good map of the island (although google maps was a big help too), a map of Cristiansted and one of Frederiksted. Beach shoes would have been helpful as many of the beaches were rocky. Found our favorite beach on our last day - Cramer Park on the way to Pt Udall. In all, great Island, great hosts, great place to stay and oh, that view!!
Our St Croix vacation
The accommodation were very clean and nicely furnished. The owners really went above and beyond to ensure our comfort. The fridge was stocked with my families preference of beverages. Sunsreen and other personal care items were provided just Incase we forgot something . The view was great, the master bed was very comfortable. The air conditioning units worked well and were greatly appreciated. The condo was fairly close to down town Christiansted and the board walk, but I personally feel it was a bit too far to walk to in the heat. Our rental car definitely came in handy to explore the whole island. Michael, the property manager also was very instrumental in guiding to get the most out our stay. It was a great vacation.

We can not say enough about our experience renting from Paul and Rachelle! They provided everything imaginable for a relaxing , well put together vacation . The condo is beautiful, clean and well stocked with beach towels , sunscreen, kitchen items , toiletries etc... anything you can think of or need! The beds were comfy and having 2 TVs for 3 of us really worked. We loved the entire condo - porch with a beautiful view, Caribbean feel of all rooms , - bonus washer and dryer and of course the swimming pool was gorgeous, clean and never a crowd. We want to thank you Paul and Rachelle for reaching out with emails, txts and phone call to provide us with all info on restaurants, beaches activities. It made for a super relaxing time and making the experience so personal . Some how I feel as if I know you both and have made 2 new friends We had a BLAST!! And we cannot forget Mike special thanks to him for showing us the way and being the kind sweet man he is ! Looking forward to a future visit to complete the “ to do list” !

My Husband and I had a wonderful stay at this beautiful condo. The location is perfect, close to a grocery and lots of resturants. Paul and Rachelle (and Manager Mike) have done a wonderful job insuring you have EVERYTHING you need for your stay. The bed in the master bedroom was really comfortable (we did not sleep in the room with the two twin beds). We enjoyed being able to cook several meals during our stay and having a washer/dryer in the unit was amazing.
This was my first trip to St. Croix (I have been to about 10 other carribean islands), it is very laid back, the people are super friendly. You will want to rent a car as it really allows you to explore the islands and would be necessary for most people to go almost anywhere.
Thank you to our wonderful hosts, we would highly recommend this location for location, cleanliness, and accommodations.
Heather , congratulations on you marriage , and choosing our property for your honeymoon! thank you for the kind words and thank you for being fabulous guests!! The next time in St CROIX look us up , you are part of the family something we all share together !

Beautiful Condo in St. Croix
We just returned from a wonderful time in Paul and Rachelle's condo in St. Croix. We were on the island for a wedding and had many friends staying in different locales on the island. Everything at #301 was well thought out and helped to make our time effortless. From the in depth recommendations on shopping, restaurants, beaches, and music to the generous refreshments left for us to enjoy, we felt very comfortable with and knowledgeable about the island. Mike was terrific and gave us a history of the island on our way from the airport. He is available for any questions you may have. We rented a car from Judi of St Croix rentals and the car was delivered to the condo. When Paul and Rachelle tell you they have everything you need for a wonderful time, believe them, we wanted for nothing. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us and we hope to return someday.
Barbara, thank you for taking the time for your awesome review!! We are thrilled you had a wonderful time. Our guests are number one priority. We will continue to grow and get better and better your our motivation , thank you for keeping us on our game you are priceless !!

I have a MBA in hospitality and tourism and enjoy value and great service. Our stay at Schooner Bay was outstanding. The property was well stocked with great views and pool access. The Gallery is a great outdoor space to Chill. The huge HD TV's were a blessing during Masters week! Mike, the property manager walked us through everything and was available if we needed him (but didn't).
I give my full endorsement for this property and the experience provided,
Thanks Paul & Rachelle!
Thank you for your wonderful response. It was great speaking with you before you left and having these conversations. We work hard to give great customer service we believe it is a big part of the whole experience. Coming from you with your experience and background surely makes us proud . Thank you for motivating us to continue on and get better !!
