Frederiksted, Saint Croix, US Virgin Islands

About St. Croix Island

The US Virgin Islands are made up of the islands of St. Thomas, a bustling cruise port town, St. John, home to Virgin Islands National Park, and St. Croix, the largest of the US Virgin Islands. Casago are stoked to announce we’ve made our splash into the Caribbean Sea with our new St. Croix franchise, and no passport required for US citizens! 

Surrounded by the Caribbean Sea, the island of St Croix is only 28 miles long by 7 miles wide with two historic waterfront towns, Frederiksted on the west end of St. Croix, and Christiansted on the northeastern coast of the island. A tropical island paradise awaits with barefoot bliss on beautiful beaches, underwater tours of colorful coral reefs on Buck Island, eco adventures for nature lovers, and island activities for all ages. 

That’s only the beginning! When you’re not out exploring the tranquil bays, tidal pools, and tropical forest trails, the towns of Frederiksted and Christiansted are abuzz with fun things to do, and local Crucians eager to share their culture and traditions. Discover the rich history of St. Croix at the island’s historic attractions, tour the famous distilleries and breweries, dine on authentic Crucian cuisine on an oceanfront patio (sipping a Cruzan rum cocktail of course!), and spend hours duty-free shopping. Shopping on St. Croix is an attraction in itself!

Interview with Robin Bass, Owner of Casago St. Croix

Casago: What attracted you to the vacation rental industry?

My diverse career history gave me the building blocks I needed for my future. I moved to St. Croix, got involved in real estate, and the opportunity of property management came upon me. Due to my hospitality, tour and travel background it was such a natural transition and I instantly saw the opportunity and growth of this industry. My personality, work ethic and customer service skills are perfect for the vacation rental industry! 


Casago: Tell us about your vacation rental business before you decided to join Casago.

My business has been growing quickly, I wear many hats and have been able to grow in a financially responsible way. But with the fast growth, I was feeling overwhelmed, needing help and support. Thank goodness, Ryan contacted me with the solution of Casago, to assist in growth, support and more improved, efficient software, Streamline.


Casago: Why did you decide to join forces with Casago?

First – I loved the weekly zoom calls with the Team/Family of Casago! I was honestly impressed with the energy, the professionalism and overall fun, people actually enjoyed being on the call! Second – the software! I am more than excited for the opportunities to be more efficient with reporting to my owners, among other things! Third – Networking/Support – the opportunity to network with fellow property managers and owners throughout the US, and to have the support from like-minded individuals. Let’s be honest, this is an industry that is fabulous, but we do need a self-help group at times. 🙂 


Casago: Tell us a little about your involvement in your community.

I have always found time to be involved in the community. In New York I was a New York Cares Volunteer, volunteering with everything from delivering meals on wheels to recording books for the blind and dyslexic. In St. Croix, I am proud to be on the Board of The Animal Welfare Center of St. Croix. My household is officially a “Shelter Family” with Sophia, adopted by a shelter in Orlando 16 years ago, and Scrooby, my Cruzan mix dog from the St. Croix shelter, who is now a healthy 82 pounds. 


Casago: Do you have a quote that inspires you?

Yes, I have two quotes. “Great Minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small discuss people” by Eleanor Roosevelt, and “I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles”, by Audrey Hepburn.

Whether you’re island hopping the US Virgin Islands, planning a family beach vacation, or in search of an island paradise to work remotely with ocean views, St. Croix ticks all the boxes for a vacation destination, and Robin knows a great place for you to stay!
