View With A Room: Douglas House, Unit 3204 at The Fred, St. Croix

This is the view that greeted me upon waking and exiting my room each morning of the extended weekend stay I enjoyed two weeks ago at The Fred. As noted previously, St. Croix’s newest and most stylish boutique hotel remains a work in progress, with the pool, bar, restaurant, and elevated sundeck still in the works. What’s missing mattered very little to me, though, in large part because of this view.

You’re looking due west, the calm Caribbean Sea stretching as far as your vision might allow. It’s a perspective that immediately informs your mind and soul that you are in West.

Frederiksted.

Freedom City.

A place that in many ways is the most historically significant anywhere in all of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

I never lived in Frederiksted during my formative years in St. Croix, but I always loved waking up there. You feel the real soul of St. Croix here. The island’s rich history, the peace and tranquility of her surrounding seas, the callaloo of cultures from near and far that make St. Croix so great – nowhere does it all come together more vividly than in West.

On top of all this, of course, are those amazing Frederiksted sunsets…

From my balcony at The Fred it seemed like Mother Nature put on this particular grand performance just for me, another reason why I can’t check back in here soon enough.
