Overview
Cottage -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Christiansted, St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands
Longford Hideaway is a very private eco-lodging: 1 bedroom 500 sq. ft. rural cottage, with swimming pool and deck, full kitchen with open plan living and dining areas, set on the ARTfarm: a working organic Caribbean fruit, vegetable and sheep farm. (Because of the farming operations, there is a strict no-smoking and no pets policy - children are welcome!)

The friendly owners live on this historic Danish-built property – the modern pool was originally the plantation cistern! With over 40 years of living on the island, we are always ready to offer assistance and suggestions. Our location on the south shore of St. Croix makes a great base for exploring the island. Resort beaches are as close as two minutes by car, or take a mile walk, jog or 4x4 drive through pastures to our secluded two mile stretch of wild beaches. Cattle roam the nearby...

The natural beauty and welcoming nature of our Italian host's was incredible. 2 weeks of fun, education, and laughter. Touring the farm and learning how to manage this massive undertaking in an eco friendly way was amazing. We were just minutes from the historical downtown...More

About the neighbourhood
Our Longford Hideaway property is tucked away on the rural and undeveloped south shore of St. Croix, USVI, but very easy to get to. We're on the South Shore Road (Rt.62), directly south of the major town of Christiansted. Route 62 runs east to west along the south side of the island on its east end, and we're on the on the sea side of the road. Our driveway is also the parking area for the ARTfarm organic vegetable stand. The rental cottage is tucked behind our fruit orchard and spacious yard, beyond the farmstand buildings. You'll have shady parking under some native flowering trees, about 200 feet from the main road. You won't need four wheel drive to get to us (although adventurous drivers may wish to rent a jeep for exploring more undeveloped roads on the island). Drivi... more
