Spacious, spectacular views
This was one of our favorite rentals. The location at the very top of the hill provides views in both directions — Christiansted and sunsets, Buck Island and sunrise. We had dinner outside every night — even one night when it rained. Stayed 7 nights in Apr 2023

no place better
We’ve been going to St. Croix for many years and have stayed at various places. We have stayed at Top of Shoys several times before and think it the best of all the places we’ve stayed. Stayed 7 nights in Mar 2023

Christmas at the Top of the Shoys
What a perfect vacation home! Pictures do not do it justice, the bedroom/ bathrooms, kitchen, pool and deck space far exceeded our expectations. Panoramic views everywhere you look. Donna was wonderful and very accessible. She answered any questions that we had. I would highly recommend this property and will be going back. Stayed 7 nights in Dec 2022

What a wonderful stay! The pictures do not do the property justice. They place is gorgeous. The views are spectacular from every angle. Great location. Close to the Christenstead boardwalk with great restaurants. Only about 30 mins to the west end where we visited a few times. You also have access to Shoys beach (2min drive) where one day we were the only ones there. There are some beach chairs, coolers, beach towels, and some snorkeling gear available at the home. It was also one of the best stocked homes we have stayed in. Thanks again! We made some great memories here. Stayed 5 nights in Dec 2022

Top of Shoys is a beautiful property. It is up on a hill so it gets breezes all day. There are lots of outdoor living spaces. The bedrooms are nice and spacious, but the master bedroom and bathroom are huge. This is the first VRBO where I felt the photos didn’t do the property justice. There are beautiful views from every angle. The house has everything we needed. The pool was beautiful. I really can’t say enough good things. Stayed 10 nights in Jul 2022

Family 4th of July Trip
As a long time and frequent visitor to St. Croix, this house is quite possibly the most well thought out and has the best layout of any we’ve stayed in. The bedrooms are all spaced out, allowing maximum privacy and the center area which houses the kitchen, dining and living rooms is simply beautiful. The kitchen is also one of the most well stocked as we’ve seen. The master set-up is amazing and the views are fantastic. Shoys is the best area to stay in, allowing easy access to downtown Christiansted and the Buccaneer and its amenities. Our grandkids loved the area which used to be a hot tub, as it was shallow and safe for them to swim in. We had a wonderful trip and would definitely consider this house again! Stayed 7 nights in Jul 2022

A vacation to remember
Our traveling party consisted of 4 couples, all over 50. We had a great time in St. Croix and this vacation home was the hub of everything we did. The bedrooms are large and air conditioned, the kitchen well stocked, and the outdoor space was expansive. We can’t wait to return to this same home. The few minor issues that arose were handled quickly and communication was excellent. Stayed 7 nights in May 2022

Top of Shoys
We just stayed at Top of Shoys for a week. The property views are incredible and it really is at the top of the development overlooking The Buccaneer Hotel, Buck Island and Christiansted. WE LOVED THE HOUSE so so much!! The house had a few issues that could be easily fixed if communication was better with the property manager. The bidet in the master was leaking into the master bathroom walkway, pool skimmer was ripped to shreds, 2/4 bathrooms had NO hot water the entire stay. We made these issues known. After reaching out to Donna about getting a new pool skimmer to get the bugs out of the pool she said she would have one delivered the next day. That never happened. We shared showers at first and didn’t tell her about the hot water until a few days into the trip. When I did reach out it was a holiday so we DIDN’T expect immediate service. She said she would send someone over on Monday morning and that never happened. Cold showers for the rest of the trip. We ran into a couple other issues like trash cans/pickup and a missing cap on the garbage disposal pipe. With no help from previous issues we stopped asking. We reached out about a late checkout due to flight delays and we also asked if we should be expecting people at the property the last day because there were two cars in the driveway and she never responded. In the islands it is important to have a property manager who is available during normal hours because it is really difficult to find certain items/fix issues on your own. We spent over $10,000 to have access to all four bedrooms and showers for our family. With that said, we expected the house to be in perfect running condition without ANY issues and OPEN communication with the property manager. If Donna had followed through it would have been a different experience. Just an honest review to help you when considering this home. Stayed 7 nights in Apr 2022
Response from VrboOwner on May 17, 2022 Thank you for coming to Top of Shoy. I am sorry that the pool net was not delivered as I had hoped. This was because we could not get one as they were sold out. I was not informed of this until after I read your review as I thought it had been handled. If you had reached out that it was not delivered, I would have followed through and found the reason it was not delivered as requested by me. The plumber Frenchie was there on Monday to check the water leak with the bidet. He said the guts had to be replaced. He said he locked off the water. The hot water in the downstairs and pool room was working though he explained it had to run for a bit to get hot. The cap off the vent pipe on the exterior was left off as we were having a venting issue with the sink, and this stopped it from backing up. Which I would have happily explained. I am not sure on the trash can situation as this is a government opened operation that we pay for. They collect the trash once a week. I would say unfortunately communication was not good with either of us. I should have followed through, and you should have felt free to call me if you felt things were not resolved. I apologize and hope to see you return to Top of Shoy! Donna

We really enjoyed our stay at Top of Shoys. The home provided our family of 5 the perfect layout and design for our needs. We loved the pool, the amazing views, the privacy, and quiet neighborhood. Away from everything- yet very close! We’ll be back! Stayed 7 nights in Apr 2022
