"It's about all
things St. Croix..."
My wife and I first visited
St. Croix in October of 1998. We loved St. Croix so much
that we immediately began dreaming about starting a business
on the island so that some day we might spend a whole lot
more time there enjoying a beautiful, warm and sunny St.
Shortly after buying
our first property on St. Croix, in 1999, we saw the need
for a quality St. Croix Tourist Information website. The
"official" tourism website that the U.S. Virgin Islands
Tourism Department had online at the time left a lot to
be desired, so we felt compelled to put a "real" website
online...one that included a wealth of St. Croix information.
We first put our Villa Dawn website online in 1999 and that
first St. Croix website began to grow which lead to the
creation of StCroixTourism.com.
For the first five years
of its existence, all of the information included on StCroixTourism.com
was put there entirely free of charge. We wanted to put
as much information online as possible to promote the island
we love so much. As the years passed, the website grew larger
and larger, until it finally got to be too much work to
do part time. What was once done simply as a labor of love,
had grown into a fulltime business! We realized we could
not continue do this unless we did it full time, but we
needed some financial help. The best way to do that was
to generate advertising income from our five St. Croix websites.
Of course, we still include as much information as we can,
in every category, entirely free of charge. This makes us
much different than the other major St. Croix websites.
If you look elsewhere for information about say..."restaurants
on St. Croix"...all you will find on the other St. Croix
websites are restaurants that have paid for an ad on that
website. We try to include most St. Croix restaurants,
paid ad or not. The same is true for many other areas of
St. Croix information. Now that we have the financial help
we needed from our many St. Croix partners, we can keep
our websites growing and current.
you St. Croix Businesses!!!!
We devote all of
our resources to promoting St. Croix...and only St. Croix!
This is not true of many
other "St. Croix" websites that also work hard at promoting
St. Thomas and St. John via their "sister" websites. All
of our energies and passion, and all your advertising dollars
go directly to promoting St. Croix...and only St.
For now, we are still
part-time residents of St. Croix, however, StCroixTourism.com,
and our family of websites, VillaDawn.com, CaribbeanDreamVilla.com,
CaribbeanBreezeCondo.com and CruzanVacationRentals.com,
along with our two vacation rental properties on the island,
all contribute greatly to St. Croix's economy and its visibility
as a wonderful tourist destination!
StCtoixTourism.com is a proud member
We love to travel and
we work very hard in large part so that we can spend a lot
of time traveling! We have traveled all over the world,
and have found that what we love most are tropical destinations.
Of all the tropical places we have been together, St. Croix
is the place that stole our hearts right from the start.
We love to swim, snorkel, SCUBA dive (St. Croix has some
of the best diving anywhere), sail, laugh with friends,
eat, drink, shop...and then eat and drink some more...St.
Croix is the perfect place for all of these activities and
much, much more!
We know that you will
love St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands just as much as
we do! Enjoy your visit! to our beautiful and friendly
Kent and Dawn
