Our large, one bedroom apartment is ideal for quiet, retired folks seeking the Caribbean sun and sea. We are located in the best neighborhood on the island (yes, we are biased!), simply known as Miss Bea, after the woman who formerly owned the entire area. The apartment is under our home, with it’s own driveway and private entrance.
You’ll enjoy the tropical breezes and lovely views of Buck Island from the apartment, but when the beach pulls at you, there are two to choose from, both an easy 5-6 minutes walk away. Relax in the lounge chairs provided by the neighborhood association on Miss Bea Beach - chances are, you’ll have it to yourselves - or take the plunge for some lovely snorkeling. At Crescent Beach, the odds are good that you'll see a sea turtle.
Another five minutes walk will get you to the beach at Chenay Bay Resort where you can have lunch or dinner and a pina colada, and rent a stand up paddle board or kayak to explore the waters of nearby Green Cay island, a National Wildlife Refuge.
Speaking of walking, people come from other neighborhoods to walk our roads, especially “the loop” which offers beautiful water views east and west. If you prefer more of a workout, we have challenging hiking hills, also with great views.
The apartment has everything you’ll need to make it your home away from home, including Dish Satellite TV for the flat screen, and high-speed internet for your laptop. There is an a/c unit but, truthfully, you will probably never turn it on: the apartment stays cool and breezy most of the time. (Please note that there is a surcharge for use of the a/c.)
Linen, towels and beach towels are provided as are beach chairs and a cooler; iron and ironing board; rain umbrella, blow dryer. Just bring your bathing suit and toothbrush!
Enjoy seasonal tropical fruits from our fenced yard with a gated drive. Do some bird watching - there are many interesting birds to see right from the patio including kestrels that nest in the sugar mill behind our house.
Eat in with the fully equipped kitchen or dine out at numerous restaurants within a 5-10 minute drive. There’s an 18 hole golf course 7 minutes away and you can also be in downtown Christiansted in under 10 for duty free shopping or hop aboard a boat to Buck Island.
After you have your base tan, a trip to Buck Island is very worthwhile. The water is SO clear, the beach beautiful, and the snorkeling great. There's also a nice hike to the top of the island.
There are lots of good restaurants within just a 5-20 drive. We are lucky that we have such a variety of fine restaurants on our tiny island.
The east end offers kayaking and, on the right day, stand up paddling. This is the end of the island with the best snorkeling, as well with many spots from which to choose.
One of my favorite hikes is just 10 minutes away - to the top of Goat Hill, which affords breathtaking views of all of St. Croix, Buck Island, the sea. It's a great place to meditate.
If you decide to venture out more and explore the rest of the island, the possibilities are endless!
