About the property

Ocean View And Breezes, Quiet 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Private Space On 1 Acre

All is wonderful here in St. Croix. Come on down and enjoy our island.

Our quiet haven is located in a residential neighborhood on a 1 acre parcel with a sea view. It is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath private space on it's own level with lots of windows creating a light and airy atmosphere and a spacious covered front porch with outdoor furniture for your relaxing and al fresco dining pleasure. It provides privacy and serenity with beautiful sea views, views of the rolling green hills and sea breezes in America's tropical paradise and overlooks the St. Croix Yacht Club. It is St. Croix's east end living at its finest. No shared Condominium walls!! There is a view of the castle and we are very close to many beaches, (5 minutes from 2 wonderful beaches) 2 minutes from the closest golf course, The Divi Casino and Point Udall. You will find we have provided many amenities, including wifi, a writing table, satellite TV, microwave, coffee maker, stainless steel refrigerator with ice maker, beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, and even a blender. The haven is a part of our home on it's own separate level with its own private entrance, offering complete privacy. Your initial access is extremely easy, you will be provided with the combination to the easy to locate and well lit lock box to retrieve your keys. we have a newly paved road for smooth access.

There are so many interesting and fun things to do here on St. Croix. That makes it incredibly hard to pick. I am happy to help you decide how you would like to spend your time here.

You may pay with confidence, we use the safe and secure Home Away/VRBO booking system.

About Sarah Bucknell

We bought the lot where our home and apartment sit in 2006. We were sailing the world on our 44' sailboat and in Thailand. In 2011 we sailed into Christiansted Harbor and put the boat on the market, it sold and we built the house! It took 10 months, we have lived here since August of 2012, when the house was brand new. We love it!! We would love to talk to you about your visit, send us an email and we can set up a time for a chat.

Why Sarah Bucknell chose Slob

We love the view from our home and it's proximity to beaches, the yacht club and nice restaurants. We had been coming to St. Croix since 1997 on our sailboat and knew we would live here one day after our boating life adventure.

What makes this apartment unique

Fun for birdwatchers, our property is located on a skinny part of the island, it is a great joy to watch the many Pelicans and Frigate Birds flying over head to get to the other side. We see many hawks hunting in the valley just below us. We can hear the ocean and feel the sea breeze in our beautiful spot.

Fantastic View and Excellent Hosts

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this home. My wife and I booked this property for a combination of vacation and to search for a future homesite. Not only was the view amazing but the hosts were wonderful and very helpful as well. They provided pre-trip information about what to see on the island and then checked in on us during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. GB and Sarah answered all our questions about purchasing land on the island, gave us many suggestions and contact information for real estate and builders and directed us to some incredible beaches and restaurants. Truly nice people.

The apartment was exactly as advertised; clean, comfortable and private. It’s equipped with satellite TV, WiFi and a well stocked kitchen. It’s located on the northeast side of the island and it gets a steady breeze to keep you cool while sitting on the porch, overlooking the ocean, watching the beautiful sunsets. What’s not to love about that? This gave us a great way to experience St Croix that hotels simply can’t do. We really enjoyed our stay and plan to book it again in the near future.

Warm and cozy

  • 4 of 5

Spending 11 days in February away from home 🏡 was possible because of Sarrah and GB.warm and welcoming place. February was still windy, St.Croix is still recovering from the hurricanes, but The North Slob is all fine and helped us to manage the situation where some places are still recovering. Allways ready to help, allways providing sound advice, allways discrete and joyful around.

Thank you again Sarrah an GB. Looking forward for new experiences in St. Croix in the years to come!

We had a fantastic visit to the Island and staying in this apartment was fantastic. The apartment was very well maintained and has beautiful views. It is a little further east than most places we looked at but the views were well worth the extra time to drive into Christiansted. The owners, Sarah and GB, were very helpful and friendly with anything we needed. I highly recommend staying at this property.
