About this listing

1B/1B oceanfront cottage with a full kitchen sits in a gated community on St. Croix's north shore. Featured on HGTV's House Hunters International. 50 steps to the beach.

The space

This 1B/1B oceanfront cottage with a full kitchen sits in a gated community on St. Croix's north shore. Sit and watch the surfers, windsurfers, kite surfers, kayakers, and pelicans cruise through the water from the cottage deck or walk the 25 yards down to the beach for an even closer look. Walk/run/bike the 8 miles of private roads within the safe gated community. Great central location for exploring all that St. Croix has to offer. 4 miles to downtown Christiansted.

The property was shown on an episode of HGTV's House Hunter's International (Caribbean Quandary). Check it out at the end of the show.

St. Croix is the largest of the US Virgin Islands, but it remains a well-kept secret in comparison to St. Thomas and St. John. St. Croix is much quieter and more laid-back. The island offers water sports in abundance, such as scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, sailing, kayaking, surfing, and kite-surfing, with numerous beaches to explore. St. Croix has two small towns (Christiansted and Frederiksted) that have duty-free shopping and historic architecture. St. Croix offers something for everyone. Come relax on this wonderful island. No passports needed for US citizens.

St. Croix isn't just the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, but it also boasts the Caribbean's largest living reef. And it is the only spot in the region where you can dive a wall that drops more than 13,000 feet.

Rates are $1,300/wk in the summer and $1,650/wk in the winter + 12.5% hotel tax. 4 night minimum unless booking gaps exist.

Chad and Emily's guesthouse was the perfect place to stay on St. Croix. Not only were the views spectacular, but the guesthouse had literally everything you could ever need to explore and enjoy the island. If we come back I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!

Chad User Profile

Chad was born in Pennsylvania and moved to Texas after graduating from college. Shortly after his arrival in Dallas he met his future wife Emily. Chad’s main passion in life outside of his love for his wife, 3 dogs, and a cat, is soccer. Chad was lucky enough to get to play for the USVI national team for the FIFA World Cup qualifiers in 2011. When he is not playing soccer or working on the house he performs the role of a software developer, mostly internet technology.

Emily is a full-blooded Texan and never lived outside of the state prior to moving to St. Croix. When she met Chad she informed him she would never leave her beloved state. Part of this statement was targeted at the state of Pennsylvania, but mostly it is due to her love of all things Texas, including UT. While she spends a large part of her day in the role of attorney, she refuses to be defined by it. Emily would prefer to spend her days doing and teaching yoga. As a certified instructor she teaches a few private classes each week and wishes there was more time to attend classes for herself. Emily has also been on the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center board for the past three years. Somewhere in that free time she manages to train for the occasional marathon.
