St. Croix Vacation Rentals   by Jennifer Weiss


A vacation in the Virgin Islands means plenty of sun and sand but for those who want a trip slightly off the beaten path, St. Croix can certainly accommodate your needs. The largest of the US Virgin Islands, St. Croix offers not only a wealth of outdoor activities over its stunning terrain and in its crystal clear waters but also has the privacy not typically found in such a beautiful area. Head to St. Croix for your next vacation and enjoy all this Caribbean hideaway has to offer from the comforts a vacation rental home.

When you head to a paradise in the Caribbean, you will probably want to stay near the ocean so you can take advantage of the warm breezes and breathtaking views. You can find numerous condos and homes located directly on the beach, where all you have to do is glance out your window for a view of towering palm trees, crisp white sand, and beautiful blue water gently gliding ashore. If this image is music to your ears, then a waterfront home is definitely for you.

Staying on the water means relaxing day and night. When you wake in the morning, you can step onto your patio or balcony with a fresh brew and let the sound of the waves gently nudge you out of your slumber. After a quick smoothie that you made in your fully-stocked kitchen, you can begin to make your way down to the water, which only happens to be a few steps away. Spend the day lying in the sun, soaking up the sounds and the fresh ocean air, without interruption on your sparsely populated sandy oasis or head out into the blue yonder for a day of snorkeling or swimming.

After a day in the sun, you will most likely be extremely tired and in need of a nap before heading into town. Since your rental condo is so close, making it back to your vacation haven is quick and painless and then you can crash in your private master suite that lies away from the commons area. Forget about vacations where friends or family members make it difficult to catch some daytime shut eye and take advantage of your spacious rental that makes it easy to experience the vacation you have always wanted.

While you are resting in your comfortable bed, there is no need to worry about other members of your traveling party being bored since your rental is fully-stocked with amenities to keep everyone occupied. Inside you will find wireless internet, TVs with DVD players, and sometimes even a few board games lying around for an entertaining, yet lazy afternoon. Anyone who still has energy left after playing at the beach can head outside to the tennis courts, basketball court, or tiki bar, which are conveniently located on the grounds of your condo rental.

If you enjoy the historical significance of St. Croix, consider a home that has sweeping views of not only Christiansted and Buck Island but also the Caribbean Sea. You can see the pastel colored buildings and red tile roofed shops from the backyard all while overlooking the stunning waters of the Caribbean. Tucked away in the lush forests of St. Croix's north shore, this can be your private retreat that allows easy access to everything you want to see and do while surrounding you with all that is beautiful and untamed about the island. Whether you want to dive into your private swimming pool or take the short drive to Christiansted, your villa rental can make your St. Croix dreams come true.

While there are numerous St. Croix vacation rentals located on the beach, you can also find villa and house rentals throughout the island that allow you to stay in your ideal surroundings. No matter where you want to stay or what kind of amenities you need, there is a perfect home or condo rental waiting for you at GreatRentals.com. Begin your search for your St. Croix rental today and escape the winter blahs with a Caribbean getaway.
