Thank you so much for your kind words, it is always so thrilling to read such well thought-out review such as yours. We are so happy that an experienced island traveler such as yourself enjoyed staying at private villa, Catch a Wave. Nothing brings us more pleasure than hearing a guest rave about a property, location, amenities and most importantly, time well spent with their loved ones. Your feedback truly assists us in improving our services as well as those of our partners and we are counting the days until your return.
Again, thank you Michael for your review and see you soon!

"Ironman St Croix 70.3 House - Wow"
The pictures didn\'t do justice to the experience. This house experience made the stay very satisfying while the ironman race wasn\'t stisfying. We had rain everyday but indoors at Catch a Wave\" mo… More

Thomas (chap) arrived as a guest and left as a friend.
We enjoyed his company and his outgoing personality. He was always courteous, respectful and optimistic in dealing with the quirks of island living. He also left the apartment super clean which we greatly appreciated.
People like chap renew our enthusiasm for meeting new people
from different parts of the country/world through our rental.
We hope to see him again soon.

We had a couple of issues... Ants, no sheets for the hideabed, stained towels, etc. We got past those after 24 hours, well, not the ants. But unfortunately, it was the attitude of the owner and loca… More
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.

We stayed here in September, 2015, and we would definitely rent this accommodation again if we have the chance to return to St. Croix.

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.

We had a fabulous stay at your condo! My husband did the St Croix Ironman so we wanted a place that was close enough to race venue without being right in Christiansted, and had a kitchen. This turned … More

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.

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!
