About Billy Sinaplidis
My love and desire for the water started in my childhood years, growing up on the South Shore of Long Island. The water inspires me in every which way, and I knew that I always wanted my own piece of waterfront paradise. My professional background is in Real Estate - I own and am responsible for dozens of rentals across the NYC metro area. After traveling outside of the U.S., which include destinations in Europe, South America & Caribbean, I decided to take all of my experience and passion to pursue my dream on the beautiful island of St. Croix.
Billy Sinaplidis purchased this Condo in 2016
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Just wish there would had been a washer and drier and the bedroom A/C didn’t work
There is a common laundry room for all use, just steps from the unit. The A/c units are brand new with no issues. You might of had it set on a wrong setting and if you would of called me during your stay I could of walked you through it or had a technician come right away if need.
Do you like ROACHES?
We have stayed at Billy’s vacation rental 2 times before and have been very happy with our stay and have provided very good reviews.
This year was a different story!
The first night we were in the vacation rental, we started to see lots of ROACHES.
I was not happy! I texted Billy the next morning and he sent someone to spray!
The next night was NOT much better!
The 3rd night we were there, the island had a severe storm and the bedroom A/C took a hit from lighting, so the remaining 7 days we did not have A/C in the bedroom.
The cable was out too, so most of the week there was no TV.
This was acceptable... but what was NOT acceptable were the roaches!
Honestly, I just wanted out of this place!
I asked Billy, if he would credit me for the remaining amount of our stay (7 days) and I would stay someplace else, He could take care of all the issues and I would not have to deal with the bugs.
I thought this was very fair proposition.
Billy said he had a friend who owned another property on the island and he would call him to see if
we could stay there.
The next night, when I did NOT hear back from him about his friend’s place, I texted him again!
He said he would reach out to his friend.
Next night STILL no response, so again I reached out to see if he heard from his friend.
We never received an answered me about staying at his friends and nothing about crediting me for the remaining balance if we found another place to stay.
Billy did advise that he was crediting us 10% for all the inconveniences we had to endure.
Not sure if 10% was an acceptable amount. I hated to go back to the place at night when the bugs were most active.
Thank God, I never saw roaches in the bedroom.
The management did spray for the cockroaches 4 times during our stay.
By the 10 day when we were leaving, we were seeing less roaches (1-3 a night).
Sorry, still not acceptable!
And when I got home after all the aggravation, I found that we were not credited the 10%. I had to reach out to Billy YET again and FINALLY received the credit!
Maybe now the roach issue has been resolved. I see the Bedroom A/C has not.
Like most people, I look forward to my vacation and having fond memories. But this past vacation at Billy’s place, I would like to FORGET!
Clean, really nice kitchen, convenient, amazing ocean views, relaxing patio
Nice development that was easy to find using Billy’s description. Nice large master bedroom infected to the patio. Guest bedroom with the Queen size bed was perfect. New Appliances , flat screen tv’s, smallmsterii with Bluetooth and internet with wifi. Guarded security gate with very nice folks securing the entrance. There is not a way down to the beach but frankly the better beaches are a short drive away. The island is still recovering from Maria but there’s nothing you can’t get somewhere on the island. For St Croix you need a rental car. No Uber or Lyft and Taxis are a bit pricey. You need to reserve rental cars in advance since big projects at the refinery or distilleries on the other side of the island means they rent them all. In summary excellent place and we
Plan on returning.
What a great spot!
My husband and I had a wonderful week-long stay. The condo is thoughtfully renovated on the inside. You can have a view of the ocean view from the living room, dining area, kitchen and the master bedroom. There is also a great cross-breeze. We just left the sliding doors open and enjoyed the ocean sounds and breezes. The apartment is well-appointed with pretty much anything you will need (beach chairs, etc., utensils, pots/pans, toaster, etc.). The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The location of the condo is also perfect with easy access to the different parts of the island (do figure out your navigation tool situation though because in general I would've had a hard time navigating some side streets and turnoffs just using a map). St. Croix is our new favorite Caribbean island and we can't wait to go back. We would definitely like to rent this unit from Billy again when we return.
Nice clean condo
The condo is nicely decorated and clean. The location was good for getting to either side of the island. May sister and I both thought the beds were the most comfortable we had ever slept in away from home, no problems falling asleep! The view from the balcony is wonderful. I was surprised at the amount of bathroom supplies, only 2 rolls of toilet paper, 4 towels and no hand towels. We stayed Tuesday to Saturday. We called the housekeeper and she brought more the day we called. She was very friendly and helpful. It would be helpful to include in the instructions for the unit that you need to use the white passcard to get in the gate. The only reason we knew to use it was because the car infront of us used one. All in all we would stay there again. I would recommend this unit to friends.
If you want perfection, this may not be for you. But, for us, it was perfect. Great view, plenty big for a couple, good kitchen, very comfy bed, large bathroom sink counter, nice pool nearby. There were a few negatives---but for us, it took it down from an A+ to an A. When looking out the balcony, there is a huge storm-damaged old hotel to look at. This didn't bother us, as it's a reminder (evident throughout St Croix) of a hurricane's effect.....but in my opinion, this should have been disclosed on photos ahead of time. The condo complex shows signs of wear and tear, yet some renovations are occurring. Owner Billy was great--quick replies to emails, helpful with a minor A.C.issue. We recommend this rental, and without hesitation, we'd come here again. We loved the view every morning, amazing sunrises. We enjoyed cooking breakfast daily, listening to the sea waves. Overall, an excellent rental, we had a great experience!
The gated complex is conveniently located only minutes from the shops and dinning in Christiansted and mid-island services, as well as a short drive to Salt River, Cane Bay, the north shore beaches, and airport.
