Club St. Croix is a small 50 unit building right on the beach. It is a clean white building with colorful bright balconies and a well maintained garden. All the units are ocean front and have a view of the quiet bay and the reef beyond. From our shaded balcony you can relax and watch the sea plane land, the kite boarders play, the pelicans fish, and the palm trees sway. There are tennis courts on the property. The beach is just steps away. Read on lounge chairs under tiki huts, stroll along the sandy beach, snorkel in the bay, swim laps in the pool or soak in the hot tub. If you don't feel like cooking, Breezes restaurant is on the property. Breezes is a popular destination on the island for lunch and dinner.
Unit 218 at Club St. Croix is an end unit on the second floor. Parking is available right in front of our condo. The unit has been renovated and decorated in a fun Caribbean theme. It is fully air conditioned. It has bright white tile floors and fresh paint through out. The bedroom is large with a pillowtop king size bed, a dresser, night stand and a chest of drawers. The condo has a complete bathroom with a new walk in shower, vanity and toilet. The kitchen has full size appliances, (dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, microwave) and is well stocked with dishes, cookware and utensils. You can eat at the counter, in the dining area, or on the balcony overlooking the sand and sea. The living room is furnished with a sofa, love seat and chair. There is a flat screen TV with a collection of DVD's. We have cable and wireless internet available.
Our clean, updated condo sits on a sandy, secluded beach in a calm bay protected by a coral reef. The snorkeling is great for beginners or experienced swimmers. We have sea grass where the smaller fish and baby sea turtles hide. We have seen and even saved baby sea turtles on our beach. One washed up entangled in a net and we were able to cut him out and return him to the sea. You can swim to a man made tire reef that attracts colorful tropical fish in open water. We often see rays on the ocean floor. Our nephew even spotted an octopus in our bay! We have a nice pool area where you can swim in the lap pool in the morning and relax in the hot tub at night.The pool has been repainted and resurfaced. It is in tip top shape. There is an on site laundry room close to the pool area. The tennis court has also been resurfaced recently.
There are too many beautiful beaches on St. Croix to name. You will want to visit as many as you can. Many of these beaches have great snorkeling. For the scuba divers, there are shipwrecks to explore, as well as 'The Wall' at Cane Bay. Don't miss taking a charter boat to snorkel at Buck Island. Help hoist the sails on a hundred year old sailing ship, the Roseway, as you head out on a sunset cruise. Try night kayaking in a glass kayak to see the magical bio-luminescence in the dark. You can rent jet skis or try kiteboarding or windsurfing. Charter a sail boat or do some deep sea fishing from a fishing boat.

About Judy Kimmel
My husband and I have recently retired and moved to The Villages in Florida. Don worked as a researcher in a drug company working on new drugs to make bones stronger. I had a small design business that specialized in custom window treatments. Now that I have time, I am learning to watercolor. I love to paint the tropical flowers and beautiful beach scenes we enjoy every day. The colors are spectacular and the air is so clean that everything looks fresh and bright. There is something to paint around every corner.
Judy Kimmel purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Judy Kimmel chose Estate Golden Rock
We were in the Virgin Islands celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. We decided to look at some beachfront property we saw advertised. We fell in love with this condo when we saw it and put an offer in on it that very day. It has been the best snap decision we ever made. We wanted to update and remodel it to make it seem more like home. We put in all new tile, fresh paint and a new kitchen. Every year we make small improvements to make it more comfortable and enjoyable for ourselves as well as our renters. We love to sit on the balcony to eat, read, relax or just watch the sun rise. We love the tiki huts on the beach and the snorkeling in the bay. When we are tired and lazy we love to walk down to Breezes for dinner. We like to relax in the hot tub or sit by the pool in the late afternoon. We love the friendly staff and our neighbors at Club St. Croix.
What makes this Condo unique
We have updated and continue to maintain 218 so that it is one of the nicest units at Club St. Croix. Club St. Croix is in a great location. We are just a few minutes from Christiansted where there are great restaurants, galleries and shops. Many of the fishing, boating, diving, snorkeling, jeep and sight seeing tours originate in Christiansted. We love to walk along the boardwalk around the wharf and eat in one of the many restaurants right on the water. The condo is close to two grocery stores and several fast food restaurants, as well as more up scale restaurants. It is mid-island on the north shore so we are equal distances from beaches to the east and west. We love St. Croix and all it has to offer. It is a beautiful island and we enjoy all the people we have met there. It is a treat to visit the island for a few weeks each year.

Our stay at the condo was terrific. The condo was very clean and cheery with a tropical décor. Having a restaurant/bar was a bonus. Chairs and shade were provided on the beach at the condo. The beach was lovely, but because of all of the seaweed in the water we had to wear water shoes. Once in the water, we used our "noodles" and all was great. (We left our noodles behind for others to use.) We enjoyed visiting many different beaches and fortunately there were 2 beach chairs at the condo that we could take with us on our excursions. This was our third time in St. Croix and it won't be our last. I would definitely stay in this condo again. I gave it 4 stars only because the cable wasn't working on the TV. (We were told there was no cable on the island since the hurricane.)
This unit was badly misrepresented!
Owner failed to disclose that there would be no operating TV. The garbage disposal was inoperable, we got no sheet or towel changes at all and no room service at all in the 28 days we stayed there. Her pictures of the beach and and the cute little huts totally misrepresent the view, which we believe she does purposely.
We spent $28 to wash and dry our own linens, which were ragged and stained. Bad mattress was lumpy and stained: sheets barely fit.
We watched other units get room service the whole time we were there. We had to clean the unit ourselves with her broken down brooms and not even a mop or bucket for water available for us to use to clean the floors with. The top to the kitchen waste basket was missing, so you had to smell and look at your own garbage. We CHOSE this unit because of the kitchen and the view! Who would assume that you would have to do your own linens and clean your own unit, especially considering the price.
Our view was ACTUALLY the top of the restaurant on the property and the parking lot as opposed to the lovely full ocean view she shows in her picture. If we wanted the patio door open for a breeze, we smelled frying food coming in, as well as yelling of the restaurant staff. Made you nauseous with the restaurant open 7 days a week.
There are other problems with this unit, but I'll just stop here. Too many things were represented to have chosen this place.
I hope the people reading this review will take the time to read some of the other 53 positive reviews from guests who were happy in our condo. We have a 4.8 out of 5 ranking on VRBO.
I received an unpleasant phone call from this unhappy guest early on. I was not aware that the cable TV had not been restored since hurricane Maria. I had been told by the manager that all would be restored by January 1st. I explained this to him and offered to give him a $250. refund for the inconvenience. He told me that was fair. That night I sent him a refund through VRBO as a credit on his credit card.
He also complained about the disposal not working. I let my manager know. He went to a plumbing store and to Home Depot to replace the disposal. They didn't have any in stock. He went back and explained to the guests that he couldn't find a disposal on the island. Restocking issues are common in the Caribbean when everything has to come by container ship to the island. Hurricane Marie did not help.
It clearly states in the description on VRBO that house keeping is available on request for an additional charge. They never asked about housekeeping or told me that they wanted to set it up.
It also states that there is a washer and dryer available by the pool. Many guests appreciate the laundry room by the pool so that they don't have to go the the laundromat. They can enjoy the beach or pool while the washer and dryer are going.
Breezes restaurant is on the property. Most people enjoy having a nice restaurant available just a short walk from the condo. It is nicely landscaped with tall bushes and palm trees. It is about 75 yards from our building.
We have spent months in this condo. I've never heard a conversation coming from the restaurant or smelled anything. The ocean breeze always smells fresh to me. We think this restaurant is a real plus. We love to eat there.
I tried to work with these guests to make them happy when he contacted me early on. I addressed the issues he brought up. I thought they were satisfied with the refund we gave them. I didn't hear from them again and I assumed that they were happy for the rest of their stay.
The other complaints are news to me.
I'm sorry that they were so miserable in a condo that we love and our other guests have found wonderful. I believe that the other 53 reviews on VRBO give a more accurate picture of the condo. Please read them.
A lovely beach front condo at Club St Croix
We spent the last 11 days of December in Judys one bedroom condo. It was well outfitted and met our needs entirely. The kitchen was well-equipped. We cooked often and used the gas grill on the premises. It was a pleasure having meals on the breezy deck. The bed was comfortable. Judy was great to work with - very responsive and accommodating with our last minute rental. Once there, she was again beyond accommodating- when the AC in the bedroom wasn't working and the maintenance person took time to replace it, she refunded those nights we were without it. Very unexpected and generous. The condo is comfortable with a pleasant beach and lots to do and see nearby. I will definitely book with Judy when I return to St Croix
Best Birthday Gift Ever.......
My husband and I were celebrating my 70th Birthday and we both were extremely excited to visit St. Croix for the first time together. We can't say enough about how beautiful and peaceful the condo and surroundings were not to mention the wonderful hospitality of the owner, Judy as well as the Association President, Pat. We look so forward to visiting again and staying at Club St. Croix.
The on sight restaurant, the Breeze offered excellent food and service besides be convenient. The beach area and grounds were well maintained and the condo was spacious and welcoming. We were pleasantly surprised as to how well maintained and the good condition of Club St. Croix since they were recently hit by Hurricane Maria. We would highly recommend that you book your next vacation in St. Croix at Club St. Croix and stay at Judy's. Oh, the view from the condo as well as the porch are picture perfect. Thank you...
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We love St. Croix and the condo at Club St. Croix. You have been wonderful to work with. I hope you can rent from us in the future!
Beautiful condo! Clean and organized and most comfy bed ever!
