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.

The space

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.

Guest access

(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.

This apartment is as spacious as mentioned. It is very well appointed and thoughtfully prepared. Very peaceful and relaxing. It is a bit away from Christiansted , by my estimation, about 10-15 minutes . The road leading to the house is a bit narrow and may have been aggravated by the recent hurricane.

Jean and Jack are wonderful caring people and excellent hosts. Their house is tucked away in a nice green valley in the mountains. If secluded and quiet are for you, they have the place. The price and hospitality makes this a delightful location on a beautiful island. Thanks guys.

Jean & her husband are great hosts! You definitely need to rent a car though...very hard to catch cabs on the island. also, cell service is spotty on the island though AT&T is the better of them on the island. Their place is very secluded and scenic.

Hi Beth, Thanks for your feedback. We have taken note of your concerns and will certainly do our best to address them. Living in the tropics can have issues. We hope that you had a safe journey home and thank you for recommending our place to your friends. Jean and Jack

Nice apartment in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood within a 5 minute drive to wonderful east end restaurants. Great value for the price. Jean and Jack were wonderful hosts, providing fresh fruit from the garden. Bonus surprise - the apartment has unique and beautiful paintings by the owner artist herself! Jean is amazing at capturing unique island scenes.

Jean and Jack were great hosts! Jean took my boyfriend and I into town until we got a scooter and exploded the island ourselves . They had great food and beach suggestions for us. We had an amazing experience and I had a wonderful birthday! I'd definitely recommend this place for a couple or a group of friends!

Jean and Jack are awesome hosts! The apartment is very spacious and has everything you could need. The kitchen is fully stocked with cook ware and dishes so that you can cook without any worries! They will answer questions quickly and are very helpful. All the beaches and attractions are in easy driving distance and we enjoyed the privacy of this location and had romantic dinners on the patio...could not have been better!
