Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Beautiful, fully-equipped and recently renovated, two-bedroom, 1700-square-foot, duplex condominium in Saint Croix, the largest and most varied of the US Virgin Islands.

The condominium is in great condition, but the most stunning feature is the unobstructed view from its living room and outside balcony: the town of Christiansted one mile down an undeveloped hillside, waves breaking over the coral reefs offshore, and an expanse of water ranging in color from turquoise to deep blue. Buck Island and its white beaches can be seen to the east, and, on the frequently clear days, so can Saint John and the British Virgin Islands, some 40 miles across the Caribbean to the north. Sailboats bob in the harbor and every hour throughout the day seaplanes can be seen taking off for the 20-minute flight to Saint Thomas.

In addition to a colorful, fully-stocked kitchen, the unit includes a dining room, living room, and half bathroom on the upper floor, and two bedrooms - one of them a very big master with a separate vanity area - two full baths and an open air atrium on the lower level. The unit is perfect for a family of four to six, for two couples (assuming they get along), or for one couple who want a larger-than-usual space to themselves.

But enough from me. Email me and I will send you the evaluations from recent renters. And whether you rent from us or stay someplace else, do try Saint Croix. As a local radio personality says frequently, it is truly 'one of the world's most beautiful islands.'

About Rob DeRocker

After selling our apartment in Brooklyn, NY in 2003, we did the next logical thing -- we bought my grandfather’s condo in St. Croix, in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Well, it was logical for me, anyway, having visited him there over many years since I was 18. Melinda had quite a different perspective. At first it was ludicrous, even infuriating to her that our fruitless search for a primary home in New York would be followed by the purchase of a secondary one in the Caribbean. Domestic relations got even worse when she saw the condition of the place; in the last 10 years my grandfather had allowed it to get long in the tooth. deteriorate. For an island where the temperature never goes below 70 degrees, there was suddenly a lot of frost in the air. But thanks to the intervention of a mutual friend named Dianna Huber, who visited us in St. Croix that first year and essentially served as marriage counselor, we got through the troubled times and Melinda eventually warmed to the task of renovating it. Every visitor since says she did a fabulous job. You will too.

Rob DeRocker purchased this condo in 2004

Guestbook comments from the manager

I had a wonderful experience on St. Croix, and much of my enjoyment was having K-71 as my home base. The accommodations were fantastic, very homey, and it's Caribbean flair set the tone for the island. It is a secure location and we felt very comfortable there. The condo was clean when I arrived, and it offered more than what was needed, from washer/dryer, three bathrooms, comfy living area, and that view! I spent many hours sitting on the veranda overlooking the Christiansted Bay, pinching myself that I was there in that moment. Grab a book, pour yourself a Cuba Libre, and relax. Just remember to pull your head out of your book from time to time to remind yourself where you are.

memorable time with family in St. Croix

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in the beautiful condo in Questa Verde, aptly named overlooking Christiansted in St. Croix. Our daughter and granddaughter came with us and we had such wonderful times with them enjoying the pool, going to nearby sites and spending time with our daughter and her family who reside on the island. This is our third time using the condo and it won't be our last.

Fabulous St. Croix Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to St. Croix and we had such a great time! Lovely island and lovely people. We loved the condo we rented! It was in such a great location. Easy for getting around the entire island. And the view! The terrace off the living room has the most amazing view. We loved having drinks there looking out over Christiansted with the bay and the lights at night. The condo has everything you need from beach chairs to a stocked kitchen if you want to cook at home. Their condo manager, Shelley is wonderful. She will take good care of you and help with any questions. She even met us at the airport to help us get home the first afternoon. Driving on the left was a little strange at first but it gets easier! Thanks to Rob and Melinda for sharing their lovely home with us. We highly recommend this rental! We hope to be back soon ourselves!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I used to think Disney set the benchmark for customer service, but the bar has been raised. Long before we arrived in St. Croix we received a plethora of information providing insightful tips of where to dine, what to see, and how to get around. We were warmly greeted at the airport, and guided back to our accommodations, and given a thorough overview of the amenities. The view is arguably one of the best, and relaxing on the veranda was phenomenal at sunrise every morning. The kitchen was appropriately outfitted with all of the cookware you could need, and gear for the beach was at our disposal, which proved helpful when we went exploring. We never had to worry about our belongings, and the air-conditioned bedrooms were very comfortable. We certainly look forward to returning, but next time it will be for more than a week!

Wonderful condo and view! Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this condo for our recent vacation from Colorado to St Croix. Rob is wonderful - very attentive and responsive to questions about the condo and the area. You can't beat the view that you wake up to every day for morning coffee. We will be back my 8 1/2 year old twins had a blast and keep asking when are we going back. We would recommend this condo to our friends, family and anyone else wanting a nice and relaxing vacation on a beautiful island. The condo's layout is perfect having the two bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs and then the upstairs being separate with a 1/2 bath and kitchen, dining area, living room and deck. Great after putting the girls down we could go relax upstairs and have a glass of wine. Location is great centrally located and can get to different beaches and restaurants very easily. Thanks again Rob for everything talk to you soon when we are ready to come back! The Martin Family

This is a HOME away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and family came down to St.Croix to visit with family and get away from the cold in MN. We will be staying at Queste Verde when we come back! We walked in to an amazing view of the ocean, it was clean, beautiful, and we had more than even needed in the condo. The customer service was outstanding, Rob, was very easy to stay in touch with and helped get us exactly what we needed. I recommend Queste Verde to anyone that is planning on visiting St.Croix, you are central on the island and everything is easy to get to.

Aside from enjoying the on site pool, we visited Point Udall, hiked Jack and Isaac's bay, visited the beer drinking pigs at Norma's, snorkeled many bays around the island, went to Buck Island via Big Beard's Tours, and simply enjoyed hanging out on the boardwalk in downtown Christiansted. I highly recommend attending the crab races on the boardwalk when you are there, fun, and kid friendly experience.

Can't wait to go back!

Great Time Had By All

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently got the wonderful opportunity to explore the beautiful island of St. Croix and stay in this adorable condo. As many have stated, the condo is beautifully decorated with an island feel, is clean, and has EVERYTHING you need. It truly felt like home for the five days we were on island. We grilled on the balcony, cooked breakfast every morning, and were so grateful for the boogie board and play toys for our 6 year old son. My husband, adult daughter and I also enjoyed a game night thanks to the board games, dominos and playing cards at the condo. And the view is wonderful every morning to wake up to with a cup of coffee!

We did many activities while we were there including beach days, snorkeling at Buck Island, crab races, bioluminescent tours, touring the Fort, and a fun evening BBQ on the beach. The information at the condo allowed us to coordinate these activities easily and we were so grateful to have beach towels readily at hand for any trip.

We would definitely recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for a home feel while on vacation. The owner is very helpful and arranges a person to greet you at the airport and ensure you get to the condo easily (while assisting with finding the closest grocery store along the way). We can't wait to go back!
