The condo was very clean and included sufficient service-ware and cookware. We quickly discovered that eating out at St. Croix was pricey, so chose to have breakfast at the condo each morning, and sometimes we would pack a picnic lunch. (There are two grocery stores close to Mill Harbour, one in walking distance.) Towels and bedding for six people were included, but for bathing only. Fortunately, we packed beach towels for ourselves and hung them over patio chairs each night to dry.
The master bedroom had a queen size bed, but we quickly found that it was two mattresses pushed together. There was a large air mattress stored under the bed to be pulled out for sleeping two other people. The second bedroom had two twin beds. The girls said the beds were hard and uncomfortable. Each bedroom had it’s own air-conditioning unit. We kept the bedroom doors closed and ran the air-conditioners. The front steel door allowed a cool breeze throughout the rest of the unit so we were sufficiently comfortable.
Mill Harbour has it’s own beach, but the description on the brochures is misleading. Yes, it is a sandy beach, but it’s a very rocky entrance into the water. Big rocks, like a rock wall. A sandy entrance into the water was two units east, minimal walking distance, and open to the public. However, Mill Harbour’s beach chairs stayed on their property, so we were without chairs when swimming in the ocean.
Mill Harbour does have a wonderful swimming pool and we took late night dips into the water several evenings after sunset. There were numerous chairs around the pool area and Smuggler’s Inn bar was connected to the pool area for a drink or a snack.
Washing machines and driers were in a separate unit, costing $1.75 to wash and several sets of quarters to dry. We washed our beach towels and some of the sand filled clothes about mid-week. Even though we were keeping them dry, the beach towels were smelling pretty fishy!
Mill Harbour had their own patrolling security with a guard posted at the entrance each night. The area is surrounded with a high chain link fence to provide extra protection.
