Our quiet airy apartment is attached to our home but very private. For those warm nights we offer air conditioning in the bedroom. There is a view of our tropical orchard and if you like fruit, we can offer you seasonal local fruit. Rental car is recommended with beaches, restaurants, a golf course and town only 5 to 10 minutes drive away. We are happy to offer tips on places to visit, restaurants etc. With most amenities provided you can travel light if you wish.
Our space is both quiet and airy. The bedroom has a queen sized bed, an in room air conditioner and a 32 inch flat screen TV with Dish network. The living/dining room features a table and chairs that will seat up to six people, a couch, love seat and single chair and a full size futon. Linens and pillows for the futon are kept in a roomy closet. There is a full kitchen with a gas stove, refrigerator and dishes etc for 4 people. The bathroom is small but has a great shower. Linens are provided. We just added a stack-able washer and dryer in case you need to launder your personal items. Our linens can go in the basket and we will take care of those.
(Our current situation is that St. Croix was hit by a category 5 hurricane. We are on generator power. We currently do not have wifi but do have limited cell service (ATT) where text messages will go through. Some amenities are not available with generator power-clothes dryer and microwave- but the AC in the bedroom works great!)
We have Wifi, which works best in the living room and Dish network in the bedroom. We have a very basic bike ( with lock) and some beach accessories upon request. We just installed a stack-able washer and dryer so that you can launder your personal items. Electricity is expensive and water can be scarce as we collect it from the sky. We ask that you are mindful of that. We have a large yard filled with fruit trees. You are welcome to use our hammock or just relax in the sun.
Interaction with guests
We usually try to meet our guests briefly to make sure they have what they need, otherwise we like to give them space. The best way for guests to contact us is through the Airbnb messaging when issues or questions arise.
Other things to note
Linens are provided,including beach towels. The kitchen is fully outfitted in case you want to cook. We recommend bottled water for drinking and will provide some to start with, as well as basic supplies, which you can replenish on your own if you need to. There are also board games and magazines for you to enjoy.
ATT and Sprint provide cell phone service to the island. ATT works best and we have a cell phone booster at our place to help you get service. In an emergency we do have a landline upstairs.
Please turn off the air conditioner, lights and fans when you leave for the day. This a quiet neighborhood, so keep the volume down by 10pm.
We suggest that you keep the screen door closed to minimize mosquitoes and other insects inside the home.
Conserve water when showering etc and we suggest drinking bottled water. We will provide a bottle of water to get you started. Tap water is fine for cooking and hot drinks.
We do charge a nominal cleaning fee but is our hope that you will leave our place in good shape.
