The Calypso suite is located on 2 acres overlooking the west end of St. Croix and the Caribbean Sea offering, a bedroom. kitchen, dining area, gallery with a day bed, patio areas w/hammocks, lounges, and dining al fresco
in the garden.

The space

My listing is unique because when you are in the Calypso Suite you feel like you are in the deep quiet peaceful woods down in this cul-de-sac overlooking the Caribbean, the beach below, the Beachside Café and other hospitality spots.
Yet you are able to walk 2 blocks over to Queen Mary (Main Road) and catch a taxi van that can take you from the west end to all points east along the way.
You do have the choice of walking west 3 minutes and you will reach the sea and all of the socializing with tourists and natives alike. On the sea road you can travel north for one half a mile and be in the town of Frederiksted where all of the cruise liners come to dock on St. Croix.

Guest access

When guests reach the town, they have access to shopping, eating in various restaurants, scuba diving at the pier, listening to live music at some of the many beach parties and at Sunset Jazz.
Guests can attend performances of the Caribbean Dance Co., go to the Caribbean Museum Center, Whim Great House Museum, Botanical Gardens, Pavillion at the Rum Factory and have access to all kinds of sports activities including Horseback Riding, kayaking, deep sea fishing, sailing, gaming and many other exciting events.

Interaction with guests

My guest are usually out having the time of their lives with all of the fun things that there are for them to do. Usually, when I encounter them mornings, they describe what they have planned for the day. Encountering them in the evenings they relive their adventures with me. Something that we both enjoy.

Betty is a wonderful person, very much enjoyed meeting her. She efficiently handled our last-minute booking, an unexpected one day flight delay midway to getting there, and made us feel at home when we finally reached St Croix. The suite is just as described - a quiet, clean and secluded place nestled among lush trees, but just a short walk from the beach. Laundry on the premises, A/C in the house. Betty housekept while we were away during the day - we always came back to a fresh house. You'll want to rent a car to get around St Croix. We found calm, clear water for snorkeling at the nearby Frederiksted Pier. Piers and other structures here provide a habitat for fish and other marine life.

The Calypso suite was just as described, but the pictures could use some updating--there is a refrigerator in the kitchen and a lovely, wicker day bed on the porch (instead of the futon pictured) which is very comfortable for a third person/child who likes to sleep outside during cooler weather. We were pleasantly surprised that the bed was made every day and fresh towels were put out! Thank you so much for that, unexpected touch. There were plenty of towels for the beach and tons of tourism literature, all very much appreciated. Betty was simply delightful when we met her! I wish we could have spent more time getting to know her--next time for sure. The grounds are lovely, well taken care of, and you have a sense of seclusion and serenity amongst the trees. If you like to fall asleep to the many sounds of nature, this is definitely the place for you! The beach is a very short drive or a healthy walk away and downtown Frederiksted very short drive. HIGHLY recommend Polly's on Strand street for breakfast, and Turtles Deli for lunch. Freedom City Bar & Grill (Teres Veh-o) is also a great beach-front hangout anytime of the day! If you are like us and plan to spend your vacation out exploring the island and all that St. Croix, Frederiksted, and the people have to offer, I would highly recommend staying at any of Betty's properties, because when you do come back to your room, you feel right at home.

While in graduate school, I was recruited by the U. S. Virgin Islands Department of Education many years ago. I was delighted to find myself in such a magical place. Loved it so much that I stayed until my retirement. I wish everyone who visits the islands to experience the enchantment that I felt upon my arrival here. That is why we here at Sugar Hill by the Sea strive to present our guests with the beauty and ease of the islands. We want everyone to become enchanted. Caribe is your home in the Caribbean.
