A good place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Carl and I had a really good time in St Croix, and this condo was a really nice place to have as our home base. The views of the ocean are amazing and the condo is very comfortable and well equipped with what we needed.

One thing that might make it better is a resource book on wifi codes, operating the TV, local emergency numbers and resources, etc. When we have stayed at other VRBO properties it has been very helpful to have that info, as well as favorite grocery stores, restaraunts, rental companies, etc. We needed the internet/Wifi information as soon as we got there, and while the property manager was very pleasant, it took until the next day ((at mid-da.y to return our phone call from the previous evening . This significantly delayed getting some fairly important communication completed. A simple resource book could have avoided that issue, and would have made our trip almost perfect.

Fantastic condo With fantastic views.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in December and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Chris and Christie were very helpful. Being close to Christiansted was perfect. There are plenty of places to eat within a short drive. The only negatives were that we were unable to keep the windows open at night due to rain, or threat of rain, each night. Also, wifi quit working for our last 3 days. We would stay there again

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!

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
