We are from Ohio and first visited St Croix in 2013 and instantly fell in love with the island.
We chose this property for the stunning scenery, laid back atmosphere, and friendly community. The condo is situated on one of the nicest beaches on the island. The North Shore offers more beautiful beaches and amazing dining and is conveniently located within 10 minutes of Christiansted.
Secluded beach, beautiful oceanfront pool with fantastic beach bar. This outshines every other condo complex on the island for its amenities and quiet atmosphere.
