After Irma / Maria I needed other housing. Crystal Cove was mostly rebuilt and they had a place for me. It has been a great place to stay and it is a favorite destination for Vacationers.... with good reason. Quiet, great location, close to Red Hook, Coki Beach and TuTu Mall Area is just a few minutes away. Not to mention the Saphire Hotel and Marina is just next door. I walk to restaurant 'Slice' and there is a 'On The Beach Grill / Bar'

We stayed again at Crystal Cove inadvertently... during Carnival week.
Not that I mind Carnival week but it created some issues as we stayed Saturday to Saturday.
Robin Nancy the owners of c-14 are amazing hosts they see to it that you have all the information you need and all the accommodations that you could enjoy. This year we spent some time and met some other guests in a couple different units and I've got to say their condos did not hold a candle to C 14 it was amazing... the difference.
Everything The View, the amenities, and the beach are star quality. if you're into things like tennis the courts look nice the pool looks fabulous although there's really no reason to go into it you have a beach right there remember?
I am right now organizing planning and reserving c14 Rob & Nancy's, place car rental through Paradise rentals, and my airfare for May 2019 I can't wait to see it again!!

I do believe that each of these units is individually owned so what you get depends on the owner. The pictures on TA show many different types of units, some very well decorated...ours was not.
We stayed in C33 which is beach view and lower level. There are 2 bathrooms and they are clean and serve the purpose. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. It is dated and, as a previous poster mentioned, the kitchen is small. We were only here 2 nights so it really didn't matter as we didn't cook anyway. There were ample supplies if you wanted to though. The WiFi was up and down but I didn't care because I was trying to escape that anyway. The AC was not very cold and the hurricane shutters are still on the windows.
This unit is bare bones but it does have a beach view and was comfortable. All of the decorations were removed from the walls so I assume there is some renovation going on. It appeared to have just been painted as well. The grounds were clean and relatively well maintained and it is right on the beach. Probably would not stay in this unit again, a second floor unit would have a better view.

I can't say enough about my recent vacation at Crystal Cove Condo B-11. I've been staying at various Crystal Cove Condos for 7 years, and this was by far the best accommodations I've experienced. B-11 is comfortably furnished with several updates, as well as stocked with helpful amenities. Steve provided a wealth of information prior to our stay, which was extremely helpful to my friends who had never been to St Thomas before. I wasn't sure what to expect following the hurricanes just 6 months prior, but I was pleasantly surprised at how the area has recovered. B-11 is located right off of Sapphire Beach, which is my personal favorite beach in St Thomas for snorkeling or just enjoying the sun & sand! We typically get groceries [& rum] on the way from the airport, and make breakfast and coffee in the condo each day. B-11 has a newly installed dishwasher [who wants to do dishes on vacation?] and a washer & dryer, in addition to stove, microwave and refrigerator/freezer. B-11 also has cable TV and fast internet service. The murphy beds are as comfortable as the king bed in the master bedroom! Over-all, B-11 is as clean, comfortable & convenient as I've seen in St. Thomas. I also love how close Crystal Cove Condos are to Red Hook, as I prefer the east end of the island, and being close to the ferry to St. John. I would definitely recommend staying at Crystal cove, B-11 and am looking forward to returning myself as well!

My family and I are on the tail end of a two week vacation and are having such a wonderful time we had to write a review. We stayed in unit B-11 in Sapphire Bay Condos West which is a tropical home away from home. As a family of 4 with two young children, finding a place to accommodate us is always a challenge, the unit has more than delivered. With immediate access to the beach and pool which are steps away from the unit made it more than manageable for all our daily activities (which if you have children you know is always an adventure :-). We were concerned that with the recent hurricane supplies and destinations would be limited, but were pleasantly surprised how many options we had. Nearby markets were reasonably stocked and the unit features a full kitchen enabling us to make plenty of meals. We also visited a few restaurants like Margaritaville which made for a nice night out. We also took two day trips to Water Island which is a quick 10 minute ferry ride from Crown Bay Marina. We stayed at Dinghy's Bar & Grill which is right on the kid friendly beach with games and music and good food. Those without children should also visit Dinghy's as the drinks and music make for a great time. We highly recommend visiting STT soon and staying in unit B-11.

St. Thomas is safe. I have never had any issues and I go out at night alone (female). There are bad areas just like anywhere else. You may have confused St. Thomas with St. Croix. St. Croix has a significant crime problem.
