I am a local architect that has lived and worked on
St.Croix for the last 24 years.
Very warm welcome by John. Nice 1 bedroom unit. Close to Christiansted and East End beaches, but requires a rental car to reach property.
John & Chris Boucher are wonderful hosts. The house was clean, private, and had everything we needed. John and Chris were very helpful with telling us about local beaches and places to eat. Would definately recommend to others.
This was the perfect place to stay for a month of simplified living, quiet, and focus. Being female and traveling alone, it was important for me to find a place where I felt safe, and this private residential neighborhood on a dead end street provided that. Furthermore, being in an apartment attached to a private home where the hosts lived gave me an extra level of peace of mind. John and Chris are such good people. They were great about giving me space, but we enjoyed spending a bit of time together, too. They were terrific sources of information, and just wonderful "neighbors!" A few things to know: there is no A/C in the apartment, which won't typically be problematic, but I was there during the hottest month of the year. Also, the water (collected in a cistern) is okay for bathing and cooking, but plan on buying drinking water throughout your stay. The swimming pool is only 3.5-4 feet deep and not terribly long. As a swimmer, I thought that might be a problem, but it wasn't. Not at all. I got my workout in and I just loved having the pool available given the heat. I was in and out of it all day long. I highly recommend floating on your back in the pool at night to take in the stars -- incredible! A sofa would have been a nice addition, given that I was there for a month. I made do with the chairs just fine, but I could see a couple appreciating a sofa. A few creepy crawlies that take some getting used to, but you'll find them anywhere you go on the island. Renting a car is a must at this address. Gas is expensive, but the island is so small that I didn't use as much as I expected.
Great spot. Very quiet neighborhood. Close to a great walking/swimming beach. Perfect for a quiet, easy getaway. I will be more than happy to stay there again!
This is were you want live and you'll have a hard time leaving John & Chris's wonderful place. We spend our honeymoon there and did not regret it!
John & Chris are some of the most wonderful people we have ever met and we felt like visiting family.
The place is a few miles outside Christianssted where you can find a lot of great restaurants but there is also very good places nearby to get your breakfast, lunch or dinner. Also, since it's an appartment, you have the opportunity to make your own food and there is a supermarket closeby, just ouside Christianssted.
The poolarea is very lovely and there is chairs, sunbed and a hammock.
Nearby the appartment you can find some lovely white sandy beaches.
We really enjoyed our stay and had a very hard time to leave the place again. We will definitely come back!!
This one bedroom apartment was very clean and comfortable. The
Queen bed had a firm mattress that was perfect with high quality sheets and comforter. The kitchen has all that's necessary for preparing the fish that we caught in nearby waters. The apartment is located a ten minute
walk from Green Key Marina and Tamarind Reef hotel and restaurant where you can find a boat trip to the nearby marine preserve, a nice bar and restaurant or a paradise beach. The apartment is situated on John and Chris' lovely property with beautiful landscaping, pool and mango trees. John and Chris were quite accommodating and friendly.
