ROYAL PALMS

ROYAL PALMS is a very luxurious, private, romantic & secluded, totally air--conditioned villa, 700 ft. from the beach, with extraordinary views and large, well appointed suites. Sited on almost an acre in extensively landscaped, palm tree filled tropical gardens, the setting is ideal for a private visit or a very romantic honeymoon.

The very large living room has a TV with satellite service, a DVD, a music system with CDs, a book library and adult games. Just off the living room and overlooking the palm tree filled garden is a 20 ft sq. screened porch with views of the lagoon and Christiansted harbor. The porch is furnished for both lounging and dining and will accommodate 6-8 people.

The two bedroom pavilions (separate buildings) are located on either side of the living/dining pavilion. The bedrooms offer the ultimate amount of privacy, as each one is located on either side of the main living pavilion. Both bedrooms have king beds with baths en-suite & each bath has an oversized shower. Every room opens with French doors onto the views, pool, gardens, and trade winds, & each bedroom is connected by the wide covered gallery which is furnished for both lounging and dining. On the covered gallery facing the pool and the Caribbean is another dining area and three separate areas for lounging.

The completely private pool, 30' x 17' x 4.5' deep (av.) is chlorine free.

Heaven

A stay at Royal Palms is as close to heaven on earth. From the first moment Nancy and I walked through the entry gate our jaws dropped at the incredible view and the unbelievable pool. The home is beyond spacious and with each new room another amazing blue vista. The sunsets and the ever changing blues of the Caribbean are amazing. With only a week it was hard to even take advantage of all the great places at Royal palms to sit and read. Dinner overlooking the pool is great. The home has easy access to everything else in St Croix but it is hard to leave. Bravo. Can't wait to return.

Nirvana

It was a perfect week at a perfect house and definitely love at first sight.
We felt at home within seconds of walking in. We were in the pool minutes later.
It only got better. I even loved my insomnia, because when I walked around in the middle of the night, I walked right past the pool and had the most extraordinary view.

The house came with EVERYTHING. The space, the openness, and oh that view!

How lovely that our biggest decision was whether to go to the beach or stay at the pool.
It is Nirvana. And a vacation thru and thru.

One Month Stay

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
After reviewing several different properties in St. Croix, my family chose the Royal Palms villa for our month long stay. From the moment we stepped off the plane, we were taken care of by the wonderful property manager. The home was beautiful and located within the most prestigious gated community on the island. The Buccaneer hotel is just around the corner and provided us with an easily accessible beach and other amenities. The neighborhood beach was also very nice and very private. It too was just a short drive or walk from the villa. Everything at the villa was in working condition and we especially enjoyed the large pool and screened in patio area. The extra guest bedroom provided a nice place for our in-laws that came to visit. Both of the bedrooms are disconnected from the main living area and provided extra privacy with guests staying multiple nights. The views of Christiansted are magnificent. I can't say enough great things about this villa. We had a great vacation and would definitely put it at the top of our list should we return.

Trip number 2 AMAZING!

Pictures don't do justice to this place. What we loved about it is this place is secluded you can do whatever you want.. Go to some restaurants which we enjoyed alot. The best restaurant was when me and my wife decided to stay home and watch the sunset by the guest room. We had drinks and appetizer there and then had a candlelight dinner by the pool.

If I can say one bad thing about this trip is time went by too fast.. We are soo looking forward to going back hopefully next year..

50th Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
It took my husband and I several months of on-line research to decide where we wanted to celebrate our 50 years of marriage, and then he showed me the Royal Palm web site, and that was it!

Well folks, we were not disappointed. We prefer staying at houses/condos rather then hotels when on vacation and have rented many over the years, but the Royal Palms is by far the most beautiful house we have ever stayed at, in fact, we never wanted to leave it. Ten days flew by and will be forever etched in our memories.
