(Mahogany Getaway offers QUALITY at affordable rates)

Why stay at an expensive place when you can stay at a quality, affordable, comfortable place? Don’t lose your opportunity to fully explore this island because you spent too much on lodging.

In this convenient location you can hop on a $1 or $2.50 bus and within minutes you'll be at one of the Island’s best white sand beaches. Save ($$$) for a few days then use your savings to rent a car your last few days to explore the rest of the island. Car rentals are expensive at $45-$50 or more a day, but don’t worry with your wise savings choice you’ll have a bundle left over to enjoy this entire small Island.

(THE BED)

Dive into the new amazingly, comfortable, sturdy, mahogany hybrid bed, and let the gel and memory foam relax every muscle in your body, so that you can get a well needed good night rest. This is a bed and mattress that only expensive hotels offer. I bought the mattress because my daughter fell asleep on it in the store in no time while I was testing out mattress for my guest. It was very expensive, but I felt compelled to buy it. Even when you are awake in this bed you don’t want to move because your body is so relaxed, but I must warn you that this is really just a vacationer’s bed, and it really has been misbehaving. As a result, disciplinary action now includes an alarm clock in the room, and if you need me to give you a shout I will. My 3rd guest asked, "What kind of bed is that?" It’s really a crazy bed, but you won’t regret how well rested your body feels overall. It was especially selected so that my guest could sleep in comfort. You’ll wake up feeling well rested with no pain. Finally, give your body the rest your health requires.

A 2ND ROOM AVAILABLE FOR FAMILIES

This Mahogany furnished room is one of three bedrooms on the 1st floor of a two-story home. Two bedrooms are available on the first floor. If you’re a traveling family or group another room is available that sleeps 3 in this same home. Companions could have privacy in the Mahogany room that sleeps 2, and children in the bunk bed room that sleeps 3. The second story is partially completed. Additionally, I provide a basket of things people forget to bring along on their trip. Relax in the Catnapper recliner at the end of the day and watch cable TV.

SOLID WALL PRIVACY

You’ll appreciate the cement poured ceiling, and solid concrete walls for extra privacy.

OUTDOOR SPACE

Your outdoor space now includes your own private table. It’s a pleasure to provide you with a quick self help complementary bagel, Cream of Wheat, Oatmeal, tea, juices, drinking water, and instant coffee breakfast you can enjoy outdoor if you please. You’re also welcome to try our Island bush tea I make weekly; it’s a very good immune booster for many ailments. It knocks the flu out in 2 days from my personal experience. This affordable, luxury room is your own space and privacy while you are here.

Note: As we move closer to the summer months remember to wear insect repellent outdoor especially at night. I provide this in your basket of things people tend to forget to bring along on their trip. Mosquitos are common on these Islands in the Caribbean because they are attracted to tropical climates. I can’t control your experience outdoor, but windows and doors are screened to protect you indoor.

Zugang für Gäste

KITCHEN & BATH

You’ll have access to a shared full kitchen with microwave, and very clean shared bath. Disinfectant wipes will be provided for toilet seat, and a potty seat for toddlers 2yrs and up. In addition to towel, toilet paper, and soap, you will be provided with complimentary shampoo, conditioner, shower cap, toothpaste, toothbrush, and Coco Butter cream for your skin just to make your shared warm bath more comfortable. So, stop for a moment and think. You’re only spending a small amount of time in the restroom. If you shared a bath in your own home it really isn’t very different.

LIVING ROOM & WORK SPACE

Feel free to relax in the living room whenever you please; it’s usually empty. The dining room is a sunny area you can use if you need a large work space. If you need to print anything I can help. Office Max is also within walking distance and offers free internet, and cents for printing a page so it is another option. Lots of effort goes into making you feel at home away from home.

LAUNDROMAT

The Laundromat is inexpensive and nearby if you need to wash and dry right away. Unfortunately, I couldn’t offer free washing at this time, but a Laundromat is within walking distance; washing is reasonability priced at $2 min and drying is only 25 cents.

PLACES TO EXPLORE PROVIDED

I’ll be available to offer help throughout your stay in any way I could, so don’t worry about anything. You won’t even have to think about what to do on island; I'll have pamphlets ready for you in your room, and automatically provide you with documentation on places to explore and activities on island periodically. This is just the way I treat my guest because I want you to take full advantage of what the island offer and have fun.

GUEST PRIVACY

Your room will only be entered for cleaning before you arrive and after you leave. It’s your private space and I especially like to give my guest privacy. You'll have your privacy, and if you need anything don't be afraid to inform me; I'll be in the next room I use as office space and shop etc., or off on business. My goal is to make your stay a pleasant one.

FAQ-SECURITY DEPOSIT

FAQ: Is the security deposit withdrawn for payment? The security deposit is not withdrawn for payment unless the host request compensation for calculated damage to the property. Unlike a security deposit that is required to lease or rent a home, or apartment the security deposit on Airbnb is not treated in that manner. The security deposit will not be included in your reservation charges.

INTERNET & CELL PHONE COVERAGE

Cell phone coverage is better inland rather than on the outer shoreline part of the island. Unfortunately, some areas do not have good cell phone coverage at all. This is an ideal location because coverage is fantastic. Internet service is fairly good on island, but even businesses would tell you their computers are down, so don’t expect too much more than what the internet companies offer.

NEARBY CONVENIENT STORE & SUPERMARKET

The supermarket food here on island is somewhat expensive, but the local Caribbean food is as low as $10 -$12 a plate according to your order, and it’s a full meal. A bar & restaurant is a 3 minute walk across the street, and their local food is affordable & really great. There is also a little night life if you want to hang out a little.

DRIVING ON ISLAND

Remember to drive on the left side of the road when you get here. You can adapt very quickly to driving on the roads because most of the Island only has two lanes, and the traffic is very slow at 40mph. The highway from the airport has four lanes. Just be conscientious about staying on the left.

1- Smoking allowed outside the home only
2- Your room is air-conditioned, so turn off when not in use to conserve energy because we pay very high electrical bills here on island.
3- Please note: Your room will only be entered for cleaning before you arrive and after you leave. It’s your private space and I especially like to give my guest privacy. The small cleaning fee covers linen wash, and cleaning supplies. It’s not sufficient to cover labor. The shared living space is a courtesy cleaning to keep the cost affordable, but you are expected to clean the cutlery, dish & appliances you personally utilize daily. Thanks for your cooperation.
4- This is private property. Please do not unlock gates to allow strangers or people you do not know onto the property without approval.
5- Check out is at 1:00pm. I need to both clean & disinfect the room properly before another guest use it. My procedures take a little more time than a regular cleaning because I am caring for my guest. Kindly remove your items in a timely manner so that I do not have to do so; if your flight leave late you can stay around, but please remove items because another guest may need the room that day. Thanks for your cooperation.
6- Please keep screens doors closed at all times. Mosquitos are common on all tropical islands. The area is safe to leave windows & doors open for natural breeze, but keep screen doors close to keep out mosquitoes and critters that live on this island. I can’t control your experience outdoor, but windows and doors are screened to protect you indoor.
7- The upper part of the house is not completed; it's forbidden for safety reasons. No work will be done to disturb guest.
8- This is important. Please remove all empty food containers from your room wastebasket at the ending of each day. Absolutely do not store bags of food waste in your room trashcan overnight. This act encourages critters, and I make a big effort to keep them out. I will empty trash overnight to avoid any critters. Thanks for your understand.
9- Please throw toilet paper into the restroom trashcan. Too much toilet paper in toilet slows down toilet and can clog it. Thanks
10- Please understand that check-in is at 4:00pm and after, but not before because this is the time that fits into my schedule. My guest leaves at 1:00pm, so you cannot get into the room while it’s being utilized. I will be at the house to welcome you at the time indicated as listed.
11- If you or your children damage property kindly inform host. We all have damage something at some point and time in our life, and I can accept that we are not perfect, but walking away and denying our responsibility is not the right thing to do. Your damage is covered under the security deposit policy.
12- I have new light colored, quality carpet in the living room. Please be respectful, and do not wear your shoes on the carpet or in the house at all. If you wear your shoes outdoor absolutely do not wear them on the carpet or in the home. I put a lot of effort into keeping my carpet clean for guest, and I do not want to have to withdraw your security deposit for incompliance.

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation...

Jude stayed in the Queen bedroom with the hybrid bed. I hope he got around to explore my suggested places, and some good rest in the hybrid bed. It was a pleasure to host him. Thank you for supporting my business and using my service. I’ll see you around the island.

Hilda's place is in a great location, even though it's not at the beach. Her complex is on the main route for the buses and taxis ($2.50) that you can hop on and off of anywhere between Christiansted and Frederiksted. It was literally a perfect place for me to stay while attending a workshop at UVI. Her home is immaculately clean and taken care of. It's in a suburb type area with a gated fence for extra safety - though the neighborhood seemed very safe and everyone I encountered was friendly. Hilda was a great host, accommodating my early arrival and making me feel at home. She left lots of information about the island, transportation, things to do and great restaurant suggestions. I had a wonderful trip and hope to stay here again on my next visit to St. Croix.

Onji spent a few days in the Queen bedroom with the hybrid bed. She was another great guest I had the privilege to meet. It was a pleasure to host her for the time she spent at my place. She appreciated the service I offered, and was kind and respectful of my home. Onji, I hope you got an opportunity to enjoy a little of the island between your schedule. You are more than welcome to stay at my place anytime.

Hilda is a fantastic host, she provides a lot of information, recommendations, and she is very sensitive to privacy. The site is kept very clean (trash is taken away daily etc.) and comfortable (the bed matrace is of high quality). We would recommend Hilda's accomodation to anybody.

Martin and Barbara were wonderful, easy going guest I had the pleasure to host. They stayed in the Queen bedroom with the hybrid bed. Martin, I am glad you appreciated the effort I put into making my bed comfortable for my guest, and you guys were able to sleep well. I am glad you took my suggestion and spent more than a day on the island. I hope you guys had a little more time to see and enjoy the island. It was a pleasure to host you and Barbara on your first AirBNB trip. You guys are welcome here anytime.

We enjoyed everything about this place! Hilda made sure we felt at home and that we had everything we needed including towels, new toothbrushes, water and juice and even bread and eggs for breakfast. She also provided us with a lot of information on attractions to see, activities to try and which beaches to visit! We would recommend this place to everyone.. The only thing to put a finger on, is that it's a little far from both cities, so you would have to be prepared to take the bus. We didn't see this as a problem, but someone might

Antwort von Hilda:
It was a delight to host Stine & Emma. They stayed in the mahogany furnished room with the queen size upgraded hybrid bed for a few nights. Stine and Emma attempted to tour the island by walking from place to place. This is not one of my suggestions, and I strongly suggest that my guest do not attempt to do so in this hot sun. St. Croix is 82.88 square miles, and it takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour to drive the entire island from east to west, but don’t underestimate the size. It’s good to do a little geography research on the islands before you get here. As I indicated, Sunny Isles main shopping mall is an 8 min walk where you'll find Kmart, Wendy's, KFC, McDonald, Office Max, Champs, Subway etc., and a hot bread bakery, local restaurant & grocery store is across the street from my place. Christiansted town is a 10 to 15 minutes drive, and Frederiksted town not city is about a 15-20 drive. I am located in the middle of the island, and you can get a $1 or $2.50 bus right on the spot to take you to Christiansted or Frederiksted town. Walking from place to place was not a good idea, but life is a continuous learning experience and you guys are young. Nevertheless, I hope you guys had a little time to enjoy the island. Thanks for selecting my place.

We got a fantastic experience. We had chosen not to travel by charter company, to experience how the local residents living and everyday functioning - Airbnb gives a fine opportunity for that. There are many mosquitoes so it's a good idea to make measures against such with e.g mosquito nets and there are many large potholes, so here is vigilance to recommend. We used the very functioning 05.02 $ buses (stops running at 6:00 pm), also to meet the locals. We were with Hilda for 7 days and rented a car for the last two days after having become accustomed to driving on the left and experience the standard of the roads. We were greeted by very great kindness and helpfulness of Hilda and generally of all we were in contact with. Hilda was very helpful with suggestions for experiences and practical such as driving, shopping center, laundry, etc. We enjoyed very much to dwell on her porch looking onto the residential street where we could follow the activities and also in the adjoining villa gardens. We are generally not to share kitchen, bathroom and toilet, but it was easy with Hilda and her daughter. Also Hilda's statement that we should go and see and experience the island and did not pay much to stay, helped to inspire us to our planning of the trip and the content we wanted to experience. Hilda is building up the house and we wish her all the best with this project and think it will be really good - would like to drop by if we again have the opportunity for a visit to St. Croix.

Antwort von Hilda:
Johanne and Peter thank you very much for selecting my place, and giving me the opportunity to host you. I enjoyed hosting you guys. I am glad you guys had a good vacation. These tropical Caribbean islands unfortunately attract mosquitoes because of the warm climate. Just about every home here in the US Virgin Islands has screens like I do on the windows and doors because it’s an everyday thing for us. We don’t think about it; we just protect ourselves especially outdoor because we will come across them. I am slowly making my space a special place for guest, but I am working around my guest schedule, and looking forward to great success. The flower you left in the water bottle is growing lots of roots, so I’ll try to grow it. I wish you guys the best, thanks for everything.

Hi!
I’m Hilda a certified Cosmetologist and publisher of a small beauty magazine; I live in the US Virgin Islands. I was born and raised on St. Croix. It’s a friendly place. I love humid climates and warm beaches. I am down to earth, cool, open and easy to communicate with. I’m a strong believer in human rights for all people. I believe that people should treat people the way they want to be treated. I take care of my guest and treat them all well regardless to ethnicity. I am thankful that the training of a loving mother instilled these values into her children. When you get to my place you won’t have to think about what the island has to offer; it’s all laid out for you daily. I try to live my life positively, and I give first time guest an opportunity without a review because someone has to. I respect my guest and I open my doors to offer decent, quality, affordable housing to communities that are in need of this service. I don’t indulge in negativity, and I kindly ask that guest respect my home, and be appreciative of the diligent service I offer. I welcome genuine guest of this manner to my home.
My goal is very simple. It is to provide quality, affordable lodging a much needed community service, commit myself to continuously improving your space, and make my guest feel at home.
