Some nice words about Grapetree Escape, from some very nice guests…

From Stephen and Carolyn: “It’s difficult to express how much we have cherished our time at Grapetree Escape! The views, ocean breeze and delightful pool far exceeded our expectations.”

From Melinda: “This is our 4th time on St. Croix and of all the places we’ve stayed this is the best location yet. The pool, deck, huge private bedrooms and lovely common area suited us to a tee. And only 5 minutes from Isaac Bay, the best beach on the planet!! Michael was the most responsive and kind owner of all the houses we’ve rented and we appreciate that. We don’t want to leave!!”

From Jay: “The home speaks for itself – perfect, private, safe, open to nature…we will be back.”

From Kathy: “First we just want to thank you for sharing your beautiful family home with us, and giving us the opportunity to experience this true gem. From the moment we arrived, we were just so comfortable with the layout of the house and really appreciated that everything was clean and well stocked. (We would love to have this kitchen.) But what impressed us the most was the perfect location you have. Upon arrival, first walking in to the sounds of the waves, the warm island breezes, and that mesmerizing view, we found ourselves in awe. Then waking up each day to experience it over and over again was just a gift. We loved, loved, loved the gallery (outdoor space), where we spent a lot of our time. It was the first place we went when we woke up and the last place before we went to bed. We just couldn’t get enough of that beautiful view, whether it be the different shades of greens and blues as the sun lit the water or the bright nighttime glow courtesy of the full moon. We didn’t even need to turn the pool light on at night. The moon did the job for us. The pool was also great. It was a relaxing retreat when the ocean waves tired you out or you just needed to cool down. There’s nothing like sitting out there with that wonderful breeze and the waves lulling you to sleep. When we were out and about, we looked forward to “coming home” to relax. Whether inside or out, we tried to sit in just about every spot just to experience the beauty from all angles — Plenty of good places to read a book. We had fun looking to see if Momma Cat was there each day. Momma Cat is really a cutie, and we enjoyed feeding her. Your home is perfectly named. It truly is an escape. Best Wishes to you and your family and continued blessings with Grapetree Escape. The owner was great and very communicative –answered all our questions and good person taking great pride in his family home. The property manager was also a sweetheart– very helpful and went out of her way to get us settled in. We definitely hope to go back.”

From Heather: “As first time vacation home renters we could not have been more pleased with our stay. The owner was not only extremely communicative, but made many recommendations and accomodations to ensure our stay would be perfect! The property manager met us at the airport and escorted us to the local grocery as well as back to the house. Upon arrival she gave us a tour of the house and ammendities. Each evening and morning we enjoyed the beautiful views and the sounds of the waves crashing. The pool was perfect for lounging if we felt like staying in or a great way to cool off after a day at the beach. By far one of the best ammendities worth mentioning was the kitchen. Both of us love cooking and the wonderfully equipped, spacious kitchen made this a real treat! Being able to cook breakfast and dinners was really nice. We also were able to pack lunches and take a cooler with us to the beach! Renting a car was essential as this property is located on the other side of island. However, the beaches and shopping are just a short drive. It actually became a nice adventure to browse different shopping centers, beaches, and the local flavor. The house has a gate which really made us feel like things were private and safe. Also, there is a full laundry room onsite which was quite nice. We did go through lots of towels between the pool and the beach. We loved the rooms and the baths, which also were accomodated with many essentials. This property is a true gem! We did not want to leave and are hoping to return soon! If you are planning to visit St. Croix and want a retreat away from home then book the Grapetree Escape. You will not be disappointed!”

From Mikhail: “We traveled to St. Croix for the winter holidays and loved everything about the Grapetree Escape! This villa was spacious, well-maintained, and definitely exceeded our expectations. The villa offered lots of outdoor seating, and we enjoyed relaxing mornings by the pool indulging in the view. The three completely separate bedrooms were perfect for having our teenage daughter and older son with us — just enough privacy but still a family vacation. Bathrooms and bedrooms were exceptionally clean. The villa was tastefully decorate and made us feel like guests of the owners, not just vacation renters. The kitchen was well equipped and the great room provided lots of space for family time in the evenings. The villa is within a pleasant walking distance to the beautiful, secluded Jack’s Bay, and it is a short drive to copious beaches and restaurants. Pam greeted us at the airport and was very helpful in providing us with everything we needed to know about the island. She was always a phone call away when we needed her. Ideal location, and we highly recommend!”
