Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We were actually here in June 2015 but the calendar will not go back that far. We loved this property. It was very clean and well maintained. You could not beat the view. We were there to unwind and relax and that is exactly what this condo helped us do. Just listening to those waves everyday made our trip excellent. I would definitely recommend staying here. We are looking to buy a condo her ourselves due to this beautiful condo and the wonderful owners!

Awesomeness!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay! This was our first visit to St. Croix for our honeymoon. The condo was well maintained and located in safe complex. It is centrally located and has amazing views. We really enjoyed our stay. Ken and Dianna were a pleasure to book with. We hope to rent again on our next visit to St. Croix.

Great Seaside Retreat - You Owe It To Yourself

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have high pressure jobs and an elderly parent with special needs. This was a critical vacation to reconnect.

Although we were hesitate to rent a condo, the Jewel C exceeded our expectations. Tastefully decorated, immaculate and a fully equipped kitchen. Wow, a perfect start to our vacation.

Our favorite part was sitting out on the private balcony enjoying the trade winds and crashing waves. At bedtime we used the air conditioner and were comfortable throughout our visit. On our final day and we have no regrets. Waking up in the morning and going to bed at night was life in pure paradise. What a wonderful place to get away.

Chris and Christie Powers, the property managers were great. They both met us at the airport and Chris escorted us to the condo. In addition to walking us through the condo, he provided island maps and suggested attractions and local restaurants. Also, when we notified Chris of an issue with the television, he replaced it the very same day. The owners are very fortunate to have such great property managers.

We recommend this condo to everyone wanting/needing to get away, slow down and enjoy one of god's creations~~St Croix. After driving all over the island, we feel the Jewel C was by far one of the best locations on the Island.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had such a wonderful time! It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed the island, our condo, and the magnificent ocean views and sounds. We are also happy that Chris was able to quickly assist with the tv! Our property managers are indeed wonderful and so committed to ensuring our guests enjoy their stay. Thank you so much for choosing Jewel of the C and we would love to have you visit again. --Ken and Dianna

A must stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are return guests to Jewel of the C - it is simply wonderful here. The condo is comfortable, tastefully decorated with updated furnishings, and the most spectacular view that is enjoyable any time of day. It was a pleasure to come back to after our daily outings to the beach. Being a little more familiar with our surroundings this go around, the location is also great. Just a short drive to Christiansted, and not much further to other locations on the island (we thoroughly enjoyed Rainbow Beach & Cane Bay).

Thank you so much for sharing your space, we had a great trip!

Great view

  • 2 of 5

Great view and excellent security. Unit needs several minor repairs and deep cleaning. Shower water pressure is bad. This unit and complex is not for anyone who has problems climbing stairs or going up or down hills.

Owner's Response: We’re sorry your experience at the condo wasn’t as wonderful as it has been for our other guests. I do want to address your comments. It is important for all of our guests to know that the condo gets a complete deep-cleaning after every guest stay. Our property manager has inspected the condo after cleanings as have I and always found the condo to meet the highest cleanliness standards. I’m guessing you may have made your comment due to the fine sea spray mist that occasionally blows into the condo. Because we are located so close to the ocean, we do get some sea spray when we leave the balcony doors open (which we love to do!). I have been sitting in the living room and have seen a mist hit the tile floor as the ocean breeze blows in. I assure you that this does not mean the condo is not clean. It is just part of the experience of having a condo so close to the beautiful sea. We are always happy to provide mid-stay cleanings for guests for an extra charge if requested. It is unfortunate that you didn’t report the minor repairs you mentioned in your review to our property managers while you were there. They are always willing to assist guests with any problems or issues. We have received so many compliments about the service provided by Chris and Christie and I’m sure they would have addressed your concerns had you notified them. We have received some concerns of late about the water pressure and we are diligently exploring our options to address this. With regard to your comment about stairs and hills, we are on the third floor but as a previous guest noted, we are only one floor up as the parking lot is at the second floor level. The complex is perched on the slope of Frenchman’s Hill at the ocean’s edge, but there would be no reason for a guest to have to walk the hills. The hills are beautiful to look at though with some of the best tropical landscaping on the island! Lastly, we are happy that you enjoyed the incredible views from the condo. Take care, Ken and Dianna

Quiet complex, great ocean view

  • 4 of 5

The property manager was great at meeting us at the airport and having us follow her to the condo. We had a few days of dealing with a leaky air conditioner from the bedroom, it was installed recently, but they were right on top of things and we just texted the repair man each day when we left the condo and he worked on it while we were out. Water pressure in the shower was non-existent. The condo was very quiet. We were not there much during the day, but rarely saw people when we were. There is no where to really walk to from the condo, so plan on using your car.

There are so many things to do on the island! The Cruzan Rum Tour was great and the staff there is super nice! We actually had so much fun, we went back to sample more rum and bought 6 bottles to send home. They will give you a box to fit six bottles and the airline in St. Croix will send them through as checked baggage without a fee. Buccaneer Beach was a beautiful beach with great snorkeling, saw lots of fish and even a turtle. Ate at their restaurant with a beautiful view of the beach through palm trees. Hiked through the rain forest area and walked back in rain the whole time - we were soaked through. Drove back to C'sted to find out that the rest of the island had been dry the whole time! Learned some history touring the Whim Estate. Great pizza and staff at Lost Dog in Fredericksted. Took a boat tour out to Buck Island to snorkel and check out the beach. My best water/beach photos are from that trip. So many different colors of blue water! Tried some local places for food, fresh fish of the day was great. There is a 4.2 mile round trip hike to the Carambola tide pools that was fun to do. Bingo on the beach at sunset at Off the Wall in Cane Bay. We also did a nighttime kayak in clear kayaks at Salt River Bay to see the bio-luminescence. We needed much more time there than the week we had -- I suggest a 2-week minimum!

We never did find our way to Pelican Cove Beach. Since it is pointed out as a selling point of the condo, directions to the beach at the condo would have been great.

Driving on the left was not too hard to get used to, you just have to stay aware. Only one time did I get honked at! Our iphones worked great for navigation, although they were a little slow keeping up sometimes. We have AT&T and had no problems with cell service. And no extra fees when we got home as St. Croix is covered!

We would recommend this condo to friends and would consider staying here again.

Owner's Response: We're so sorry to hear that the new air conditioning unit was leaking but also glad to hear our property managers took care of that right away for you. Thank you so much for the tip on leaving directions to Pelican Cove Beach. We will do that, as it is very close to the condo, but a little tucked away. It sure sounds like you had a fabulous vacation and we want to thank you again for choosing Jewel of the C! We hope to have you back. Ken and Dianna
