We got lost on our way to Sailor's Rest. Not because it was hard to find, we were just a little turned around and confused. Alexandria, the owner of the property, was patient and stayed on the phone with us to help us find our way. It's really not hard to find nor is it far from the airport. Upon our arrival, we received a very warm welcome (hug).
The property is simply amazing. Absolutely beautiful. My hubby and I chose to stay here for our 24th anniversary. So glad we did. The inside of the property looks just as the pictures posted. It was a very comfortable stay. Everything that one would need is inside of the home. The kitchen was stocked with food. The wine bar was stocked with libations. We didn't want to leave. The outside of the property offers an amazing view. I thought the pictures posted of the view were beautiful but it's even more beautiful in person. There is also a pool area with a grill and more patio furniture to relax on the upper deck.
Snorkeling gear, pool noodles, etc, all of the amenities (and more) that one would need while on vacation are available on the property. Sailor's Rest is close to restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations and shopping areas.
We typically stay in hotels or resorts when we vacation. This is our first time staying in a vacation property. This place has set the standard by which we will choose other places when we travel. I can't rave about this place enough. It really is a quiet comfortable stay. I highly recommend this place.
The location was great and the view spectacular. So relaxing to
sit and watch the kite surfers and crazy storms! We are already
planning our next trip!
Sailor's Rest was a wonderful place to stay. The view is amazing, the bed is comfy, and the kitchen is perfectly stocked if you prefer to make your own meals. The place is very private but if you need anything Alex is a fantastic host and will help you with whatever you need. They even provide high quality beach chairs and snorkeling gear! I would absolutely stay here again on my next visit to St. Croix.
Having spent the week at Sailor's Rest, we did not want to leave! The guest house is beautiful, clean and filled with natural light and a lovely breeze. The tempurpedic bed is a dream and the kitchen has everything you'll need for a short or long-term stay. The view from the house is stunning. It overlooks the bioluminescent bay and once you relax in one of the chaise lounges you may never want to leave (particularly when the sun is setting)! When you do decide to venture out, there are several beautiful beaches and great restaurants within a short drive from the house. Alex is an incredibly thoughtful, welcoming and respectful host. She provided us with snorkeling gear and was always available to answer our many questions. I will definitely be back to Sailor's Rest and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing and dreamy getaway!
We had the great fortune to spend the month of August at Sailor's Rest. Having travelled to many far corners of the globe, this is certainly the most special place we've stayed. The unit combines high end design and amenities with unique artistic touches and a thoughtful attention to detail. It is such a beautiful, comfortable, and peaceful place to stay. We had many meals, and our morning coffee, on the covered deck overlooking the stunning bay and ocean. The sunrises and sunsets are just incredible here. We slept more deeply that we have in a long time. Alex and Dedrick are the consummate hosts, welcoming, accommodating, and always happy to share their wealth of knowledge about St. Croix. They are available with information and assistance, and for great conversation, but are very respectful of the privacy and quiet of the place and its guests. Sailor's Rest is a perfect home base for exploring the island, resting and relaxing, or writing your novel. It's hard to describe in words the feeling of magic and rejuvenation here, see for yourself!
I cannot say enough about Sailor's Rest! Everything about our stay was absolutely perfect! From the second you walk down the stairs and have a glimpse at the STUNNING view, you will know you made the right choice! But if you can peel your eyes away from that and make your way inside, you will not be disappointed in the amenities either. You instantly feel at home. A fully stocked kitchen, a beautiful shower with a view of the ocean, and a gorgeous bedroom that feels truly Caribbean. And what could be better than waking up with an ocean breeze on your face, and the sound of the ocean down below?! And the owners have got to be some of the nicest people on the island! Don't even hesitate, book this place NOW!

Our stay at Sailor's Rest was unforgettable. The location was just perfect with magnificent views of the Caribbean water. It was just a quick 3-5 minute walk down to the ocean. We loved watching the beautiful colors of the sky over the water during sunset. The space was perfect for us, newly remodeled and clean. We slept great in the very comfortable bed and enjoyed the luxurious shower. We got to experience an amazing rainbow over the water right out from our apartment. We got to take a swim in the world famous Bio-luminescence bay which can be seen right from he porch. We went into town a few times and had some really delicious meals but prepared a lot of our food in our very own kitchen. Just a delightful visit we had to St. Croix!!! We would go back in a heartbeat! Many thanks to wonderful hosts Alex and Dedrick for providing us with such a great visit. We can't say enough good things about this location...just hope that when we want to book again it isn't already taken!
