Our place is close to restaurants and dining, the beach, family-friendly activities, public transport...very private estate.. Our place is good for couples. You'll enjoy 180 Degree Views, Gentle & Constant Breezes, Rest & Relaxation.
(See our "Adorable Studio" on Airbnb located on the premises-Perfect for Group Rentals).

The space

This is a quiet residential estate. The upper level where the Cottage is located is quiet and the Caribbean breeze will sweep you away.
There are resident iguanas and they are our friends. Please don't whack them-they are strictly vegetarian.
We just completed an Outside Shower "Al Fresco" for an "After Beach" splash or Just In The Mood for an Outside Shower. Mmmmm! Sexy & Refreshing.
This is a tropical climate and with that comes tropical pests such as mahogany birds.
There are no bbq facilities in the grounds.
There are no pets on the property. Smoking is only allowed outside on the front porch.

Miguel and Ucinta are great hosts: they're very thoughtful, non-intrusive yet always ready to offer assistance with any help you need. The bungalow is better than it appears in the photo. It's a one-bedroom detached facility with TV, wi-fi and cooking facilities, and a fantastic view - everything you need for a perfect holiday. It's very quiet, clean and comfortable. You really feel part of a real neighborhood because of its location in a residential area. Maps and relevant island information is readily available in the bungalow. If you need any help, the hosts can be easily contacted by mobile phone.

We cannot say enough about Miguel, Ucinta, and the Cruzian Gem. Our trip started with very timely and thorough communications from Miguel. The day of our arrival, we were met at the airport by our hosts and escorted back to our residence. Both Ucinta & Miguel were always available to answer questions, give directions, or any assistance needed. The accommodations were spotless and there were several little special touches that made us feel very welcome. The Cruzian Gem is located less than 20 minutes from either downtown Christiansted or Fredricksted. It is also relatively close to a large grocery store, K-Mart, small restaurants, and of course the beach. Although the road leading up to their house is extremely rough, you can get there in a good car as well as a jeep. The road is scheduled to be repaved, but that will happen on island time. You must keep in mind that the island roads are riddled with potholes and you rarely get your speedometer above 40 mph. We highly suggest you come equipped with some form of GPS on your phone. Roads are not marked so road maps won't give you a lot of help other than to orient yourself. Our (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps was a life saver and with it we easily found our way home each night. And of course, if (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps went down we could always call Ucinta or Miguel for directions. We cannot wait to return to St. Croix to stay with Miguel and Ucinta again.

Ucinta and Miguel were wonderful hosts during our 8 day stay. They met us at the airport to guide us to their location, which would have been difficult to find on our own. They were always available if we needed anything, but they also respected our privacy. The location is mid-island, so you are not too far from either Christiansted or Frederiksted, and there are beaches within a 10 minute drive; Cane bay beach was one of our favorite hangouts. You will want to have an SUV, which is a good idea for St. Croix in any case, as the roads can be a challenge in some areas. It is a peaceful spot with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, and nice breezes. We enjoyed sitting out on the front deck in the late afternoon and watching the sun go down. Would be happy to come back again!

Miguel and Ucinta were the warmest and friendliest most helpful host that we have ever had with Airbnb. Everything from offering pick ups from the airport to providing some quick Snacks to eat on arrival to sharing lemongrass tea from the garden made our visit warm and memorable. They made us feel like part of the family and at the same time gave us all the privacy and space we needed.

Miguel was extremely hospitable and even met me @the airport after 9:30pm. The host provided a 'welcome dinner snack,' (which was incredibly generous) and snacks included popcorn, bottled water. I would definitely stay here again!
