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

Why Rob DeRocker chose St. Croix

Spacious, 'fun,' and with one of the most picturesque views you'll find anywhere in the Caribbean.

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.

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!

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We (all 6 of us) agree. This place is magical. This was our first trip to STX but will most definitely not be our last. Rob's condo had everything we needed. Of special note THE VIEW! If we never left the place but merely sat on the balcony, that view would do it. But we did leave the place and each day offered a new adventure for our family. Snorkeling at Buck Island, Backyard BBQ and Blues. Carambola Beach and Horseback Riding on Rainbow Beach only scratch the surface. We must go back if only to visit the one thing we missed....the beer drinking pigs. GO!

Incredible Place to Stay - You Should Too!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This was an awesome condo to rent. Every detail was considered and accounted for. Every time my wife and I would say to each other......."Gee, I wonder if they have this", low and behold it was there! Pool and beach toys, snorkeling gear, cooler, beach towels, DVD's books, gas grill, plenty of towels and linens............K71 has it all! Then when we got into the kitchen, spices galore, cleaning supplies, all kitchen gadgets............my wife was impressed.

Top all that off with one of the most fun, colorful, tasteful decorated places you will ever see and you will know why this is a great place to visit.

We loved it so much that we bought a condo in St. Croix on our visit! We will be moving to this incredible island................one of the best kept secrets in the world. (Just learn how to drive on the left:))

Slice of paradise with all the amenities of home!

  • 5 of 5

St. Croix is stunningly beautiful and the DeRockers condo is in the center of it all, located a short 5 minute drive from the historic Christiansted.

The Island is magical. We woke up each morning and savored breakfast on the balcony, with sunny skies, and a deep Caribbean blue ocean.

The condo was immaculate, with two spacious bedrooms downstairs, each with well appointed ensuites. Upstairs we appreciated all the amenities of home, including a fully equipped kitchen, large dinning area and table, third bathroom, plus separate living room including the balcony and a BBQ.

Melinda and Rob's condo is located on a hill, allowing the ocean breeze to cool the apartment. I would highly recommend the condo for that reason alone. We never required AC and were especially appreciative of the breeze during the evening.

In addition, Melinda and Rob are wonderful owners and provided us with invaluable tips and recommendations of where to go. Highlights for us were, Carambola Beach Resort and The Buck Island Catamaran Sail with Captain Heinz. We also had a superb meal at Rowdy Joes, close to Cane Bay.

We would highly recommend The DeRockers condo and plan to be back in July!
