Thank you Kat for your kind compliments on my vacation rental. It was a pleasure hosting you and your party. Thanks again see you in the future.
Above & Beyond was way above and beyond our expectations. The house is absolutely beautiful, and as others have said, the pictures really don’t do it justice. Perhaps most important is that Carissa … More
We just love that the whole family enjoyed every aspect of the Villa - from the unique showers to the unique pool. With the location being as perfect as it is, you were in the best spot to go to great restaurants and take in our beautiful sunsets. We're thrilled that you did so much while you had Above & Beyond as your home base. We can't wait to meet the rest of the beautiful family when you bring them with you next year!!
Your Family in St. Croix,
PS - I hope your training for the marathon is going better than it did while you were here. :-) I hope to hear that you ran in record time after you cross that finish line.

I am glad you and your friend joined us. Sounds like you both enjoyed the same things. Thank you for taking such good care of our home so others may enjoy it. As for the furniture I agree the hard woods are beautifully crafted and we enjoyed picking the furnishings out during our remodeling process.
I agree the distillery is a must. We loved having you and look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Let me begin by stating that I am one that never writes reviews, but this is trip was so amazing that I had to write about it. I have been on many vacations and have seen many condos but none as enjoy… More
Thank you for taking the time to write! Although this has been a vacation rental for many years, the new owners have taken a lot of time to create a wonderful and tropical space. Every room has been painted, new linens and towels, and new interior and exterior furniture! The comfort and enjoyment of the guests is of paramount importance to the owners. They have taken a condo in an amazing location with a fantastic view and proximity to everything, and turned it into a comfortable and lovely vacation hideaway. That stingray must like the area, because you are not the first to see it! It sounds like you had an wonderful time, and I do hope you return! I would be very happy to welcome you back! By then, I will have more suggestions for you. There's so much to do and see on St. Croix in between the necessary relaxing that must be done!
This was a perfect getaway. The owner has everything you could possibly want and more. She is a very gracious host. We felt right at home at the condo. The breeze coming through the back doors and the… More
We love that you enjoyed your stay at our condo and on St. Croix! Google Maps somewhat works to help you find your way around, and the commonwealth is working on a E911 system and adding "real" street signs, but that will take some time to implement. In the meantime, we're happy to help you find everything on our island and we're sure you'll want to come here again and again.
We are located right in the middle of the island, which makes it easy to get everywhere, and if you are looking for great snorkeling, be sure to check out not just our beach, but easy trips to Buck Island or my personal favorite, Cane Bay.

I am sorry your stay was not as you expected. The maids are not aware of how many are staying in this unit but I am glad they provided you with sheets you needed. I also have an exterminator that comes once a month. I have stayed in this unit for months at a time. The bath towels were never stained. Possibly the kitchen towels were unfortunately we cannot control what our guests use our towels for I would hope they would respect our things as this is not a hotel. We try really hard to make this unit affordable and do our best to keep up with guests destruction. Thank you so much for letting us know about your experience.
The condo had a great view! You can see the ocean and beach from your patio. The place was clean and very spacious. We enjoyed the Breezes bar and resturant which is on the property. It was great w… More
