About the property

This condo features 2 large bedrooms with 2 full baths and sleeps 4

** NEWLY RENOVATED BATHROOMS. **

Enjoy the Caribbean lifestyle in our two-bedroom two-bath, tropical retreat in the quiet Pelican Cove on St. Croix's North shore.

Featuring large bedrooms with 4-poster beds, en-suite bathrooms and an open floor plan, the easily accessible first-floor condo is nicely appointed with quality items including a mangowood living set, rattan dining set, HDTVs (with over 100 channels) and high-speed wireless internet access.

Relax on the patio and enjoy the ocean views and breezes, or relax in air-conditioned comfort. The condo features beachfront access to Pelican Cove beach, a gorgeous pool, tennis courts, and great restaurants within walking distance.

With the well-stocked kitchen, you can relax in comfort, or check out the great attractions of St. Croix and the rest of the USVI.

There is plenty to do on St. Croix. Here are few suggestions if you are feeling energetic:

* Scuba dive: learn to scuba-dive at scenic Cane Bay or complete your certifications; take hosted dive trips from Dive Experience and other local companies

* Snorkel at many wonderful sights around the island: just out the doors of the condo at Pelican Cove, or for a must-see: go to the nation's only underwater national park: Buck Island

* Bring your golf clubs and check out one or all of the three golf courses on St. Croix: at the Buccaneer, at Carambola Golf & Country Club, and The Reef

* Tour historic Fort Christian and Fort Frederik

* Like rum? Tour the Cruzan Rum Distillery and the Captain Morgan distillery or just stop by the visitor's center

* Visit the St. George Village Botanical Gardens

* Check out sunrise or sunset from Point Udall, the easternmost point in the US.

* Check out some of the fabulous restaurants along the way.

About Reservations at Dolphin's Paradise (Richelle)

After vacationing in beach destinations around the world, we tried the US Virgin Islands and fell in love with St. Croix. We purchased our condo here in May of 2012, and rent it out when we aren't using it ourselves.

Reservations at Dolphin's Paradise (Richelle) purchased this condo in 2012

Why Reservations at Dolphin's Paradise (Richelle) chose St. Croix

We looked at condo complexes all over the island, but the relaxed, quiet atmosphere at Pelican Cove, easy access to the beach, beautiful pool, well maintained grounds, and open floor plans with large rooms in the condos themselves made it a no-brainer to pick Pelican Cove over the others. The close proximity to Christiansted and some of our favorite restaurants to hang out along the boardwalk didn't hurt either...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dolphins Paradise is perfect for us! We stayed two weeks this year and two weeks last year. We have reserved it for two weeks next year. That should speak for itself!!! The Condo is equipped with everything you need and more. Food Town is a wonderful grocery store very close. The deli there is fabulous. The Palms next door has wonderful food and great activities all a short stroll away. St. Croix has lots of fabulous restaurants also. The grounds, pool, and landscaping at Pelican Cove are beautiful and well maintained. The last Friday of the month there is Jazz In The Park on the lawn of Fort Christiansted. Folks bring lawn chairs, food, wine, etc. and listen to great performers. There is so much to do on St. Croix. Richelle furnishes lots of information. We also learned to ask the locals for suggestions. The people on St Croix are the friendliest in the world. We feel it is very safe, laid back, and a great climate. We did not turn on the TV's or AC for the entire visit. There is new patio furniture, which is great since we spend most of the time enjoying the view of the beautiful Caribbean. Richelle is wonderful to work with. No problems at all.

Very nice, comfortable, had everything we needed

  • 4 of 5

The location and home were as expected. We were very active and as a result, we had wet stuff all the time. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to hang stuff on the rail of the deck because of property rules. We had a tough time drying stuff out. I understand, but then an alternative should be provided.

The facility was very quiet and well kept. The pool was nice and we had the hot tub to ourselves every night.

Overall, we would go back for sure.

Great condo in best location

  • 5 of 5

We like being centrally located on the island, and Pelican Cove is the best fit for that requirement. The condo is lovely -- a view of the sea, but very close to the condo pool -- where we spent a lot of our time when we weren't out and about. We'll be back again next year.

Super Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the surf and the gentle breeze coming off the sea. Super relaxing. I have returned to this property 3 times. Some nice updates to the patio and bathrooms have been made since I was there last. The condo is in a great location near center of island but closer to Christianstadt. There are some fantastic restaurants close by (don't be afraid to drive on the left -it's easy to get used to it) and don't miss The Cast Iron Pot, almost right across the street, local and very fresh food. Also Toast is awesome for breakfast or brunch. Salute is also very good for dinner. This condo is located on non-swimable beach (too rocky) but the beach at the resort next door is available to swim and snorkel. The pool is very quiet with no pool pigs (which I define as people who head to the pool early to put towels on chairs then disappear until after lunch and which I hate). Most of the residents are owners of the condos so it is VERY quiet. In fact, out of all my extensive travels, this is the quietest place I have ever been.

Best vacation spot ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation ever and it was largely due to this amazing condo. The unit was beautifully decorated, the newly remodeled bathrooms are gorgeous, and we had more than enough space for the 4 of us. We had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. The condo has amazing views and the whole complex is super quiet with just the sound of the ocean. The beach access was perfect and we enjoyed the entire grounds of Pelican Cove; we felt like we had the place to ourselves. There was no one on the beach, and hardly ever anyone at the pool, which is simply beautiful. We will definitely stay here again when we go back!

The owner was great to work with and made sure everything was ready for us, and provided tons of information for us, including online app support with all the condo info as well as recommendations for restaurants, grocery stores, beaches and tourist attractions.

The condo had everything we needed, from snorkel gear, portable cooler, portable beach chairs and super-fluffy beach towels to make trips to St. Croix's beaches super easy, to a fully stocked kitchen with a complimentary bottle of rum to get started. The kitchen even had bunches of spices and supplies to make it easy to cook.

The condo has WiFi, and it is good enough for streaming video - we brought along our Roku and had no problems at all watching our favorite shows (and sports teams) on the one rainy day during our trip.

I'm already planning our next vacation to St. Croix, and plan to stay in this amazing condo again!

Comfortable and well stocked condo in a very relaxed setting

  • 4 of 5

The condo is a ground floor unit in a smallish but well maintained expanse of land adjacent to the Palms at Pelican Cove hotel. The condo buildings maintain their own good sized pool & jacuzzi, and small but delightful beach which is ideal for watching rolling waves against the sunset. Richelle's unit is on the ground floor of one of the three buildings and has good sized bedrooms and an extensive back porch. Her kitchen is incredibly well stocked- so much so that we kept discovering storage containers and cooking utensils for our in-house chef. Like all ground-floor seaside units there is an insect battle but a can of spray helped diminish their presence over time. Mornings we got a wake-up call from one of the three resident roosters (everyone seems to have chickens) who believed that he owned the place. The guest bedroom tiles and and porch screens need some work but, mostly this impressed as a comfortable, very well ventilated (we only used the fans) living space. The condo is very strategically located off route 75, with Christiansted 10-15 minutes east and Cane Bay and major food and Centerline Road shopping 15-20 minutes west and south. Along Route 75 itself there are 3-4 very good eating spots including the Cast Iron Pot, 2 barbecue stops and, farther southwest the outstanding La Reine Chicken shack. The owner, Richelle Ahlvers, was easy to work with and she seems invested in upgrading her property, which for us was a very pleasant and comfortable location.

Excellent Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect getaway. The owner has everything you could possibly want and more. She is a very gracious host. We felt right at home at the condo. The breeze coming through the back doors and the views were spectacular. We slept with the doors open and heard the ocean every night.

Be sure to follow her directions to the condo. St. Croix doesn't have a lot of street signs so landmarks are the best directional markers. I know this must sound scary but you can get around pretty easily. We knew our way around with in a day of driving for the most part.

There are plenty of great places to eat nearby and it's close to everything we wanted to do. The beach down by The Palms was great for swimming and snorkeling too.

We would definitely stay here again!

Car: recommended

St. Croix is the largest of the US Virgin Islands, with a relaxed and welcoming island lifestyle. With everything from tropical rainforest to national underwater reefs, there's plenty to see and explore.

If you'd like to learn how to scuba-dive, St. Croix's famous Cane Bay is a perfect location for your first dive experience, and don't forget to check out Point Udall, the easternmost point of the US.

There's also lots of local culture to soak in, so relax with some local Cruzan rum during a tour of the Cruzan rum distillery, or just kick back at one of the islands' great restaurants and enjoy.

Or, if you're looking for a quiet getaway, we can arrange to have your groceries stocked so you never have to leave the condo and poolside too. Whatever you decide, we know you'll enjoy St Croix as much as we do!
