3 Bedroom 2 Bath Sleeps 6 - 3 1/2 miles east of Christiansted, St Croix, US Virgin Islands. DSL Wireless Internet Service.
You are cordially invited to a Caribbean Island Holiday in the West Indies. Enjoy the comfort of a private residence in 'America's Paradise'. This home is both private and secluded, built by the owner and cherished by many long time return guests. Located in a rural area of open countryside and rolling hills just 3.5 miles east of Christiansted. The private swimming pool, surrounded in tropical landscape, are a highlight. Take a night swim under the open starry sky. Wake up in your quiet sanctuary, step out onto the poolside, sip a cup of the local coffee, and listen to the peaceful song of the mountain dove. Estate Tipperary has been a secret retreat for many return vacationers; for some it was their very special honeymoon.
Beverly was the one who had this dream and made it all happen. Because she has been the sole contractor, builder, and owner, this villa has remained a very special place for her and her family. She feels strongly that everyone should experience a welcome, relaxing, memorable stay on St. Croix. There are many amenities, including an open mahogany wet bar, a complimentary bottle of the local Cruzan Rum with a fresh lime, DSL WIRELESS INTERNET, Cable TV, DVD,VCR, two outdoor showers, coolers, beach chairs, outdoor sensor lights, ample parking on private property, and a historic Danish brick garden walkway from driveway to swimming pool.
I built this house in 1964 and again after Hurricane Hugo in 1989.
Bev Collins purchased this house in 1964
Just love this place with the water gut and enormous Ironwood trees.
Lots of lawn to play on and the pool is tucked in close to the house and only a few minutes to beaches, restaurants and town!
We had an absolutely amazing week long vacation on St. Croix, and loved staying at Tipperary. The house is gorgeous, spotless, welcoming, and comfortable, with all the creature comforts of home. The wireless is fast, and cell phone coverage to the states is excellent. There is ample room to relax and unwind, the bedrooms and bathrooms are very nicely appointed, and the kitchen is spacious and up to date. The pool is fabulous, my little boy just learned to swim and he spent hours each day enjoying the pool.
The owners, Bev and Chip, provided exemplary customer service, with detailed directions and information about the house and all its offerings prior to our arrival. Bev is an amazing hostess, so kind and warm, and helpful, truly gracious. Lovely tropical flowers and a bottle of Cruzan rum were awaiting our arrival upon entry into the gorgeous living room and kitchen area. What a treat!!! They had everything we needed, from beach towels to pool toys and rafts, even extra sunscreen. The attention to detail was unsurpassed, and this made for such an enjoyable stay.
We loved Cheeseburger's in Paradise and the Deep End Restaurant (at Green Cay Marina), very close, and easy drive for lunch or dinner. The Buccaneer hotel was nice for an evening drink overlooking the ocean, and the Mermaid Beach at the hotel was fun for the whole family. We enjoyed Chenay Bay and the Carambola Beach, and the beach at the Tamarind Beach hotel... perfect for snorkeling after a delicious lunch. Crab races at the Buccaneer and The Deep End were so much fun!!
I would highly recommend this home to friends and family for their next caribbean vacation. We can hardly wait to return back to St. Croix and Tipperary!!!
Having visited St Croix many times we had always stayed in a condo but this year decided to rather stay in a house and we are hooked. This house is large and very airy with light coming into every room and the wonderful Caribbean breezes flowing through. The house as everything you would need for a great stay from books to read, games, pool floats as well as all the things one would need in the kitchen. The house sits away from the road and so it is very private and is located in a very safe part of the island. It is 10 minutes from downtown Christiansted but also only 15 min from the Casino so is very central.
Shops are also close by for groceries and the newly opened seaside store has a great selection of products just down the street. The pool was great and in fact we found it hard to leave the house.
The owner worked with us on departure and we really enjoyed staying in this wonderful home. Our biggest decision was weather to laze around the pool or go to the nearby beaches. For great Hamburgers Cheeseburgers in Paradise is 5 minutes away and for fine dining Sevant in Christiansted is our favorite.
This home has everything, and it's beautiful. The rooms were large and spacious, the woodwork and attention to detail in the home were phenomenal, and it had all the conveniences of home. We felt so at home in this beautiful property, from the crystal-clear pool to the large, spacious kitchen, to the open-bay garage where we were able to spread out our bikes and get them ready for Ironman 70.3 St. Croix. This home is on the bike course and is a great place to stay if competing in the triathlon, or even if you're not.
This home is just 3 miles or so from town, and only a mile or so from Tamarind Beach, Shoy's Beach, and Chenay Bay. And Cheeseburges in Paradise is just a mile north of the house, too. I would recommend this house to small and large families alike, and there are even baby beds for the little ones in the master bedroom. We even found the iPod and stereo already programmed with Caribbean and contemporary music; it was just like coming home from work into our own home, but this time in the paradise of St. Croix.
This was our 6th trip to St. Croix and this home was the best value and had the most amenities of any we have ever stayed at. We'd love to come back.
I have lots of family on the island, but I have not visited in over 20 years. Because I was visiting on business plus my brother and two friends were traveling with me, I thought it best to find a place of own instead of crashing with relatives - was I glad I made that decision! The house is very spacious and there is a private pool! There was enough room for everyone to spread out to have their own space and the common areas were very comfy too. Beverly, the owner is awesome! Her welcome email included all the information we needed to know about the house as well as what restaurants and activities are in the surrounding area. When there was a problem with the freezer and one of the ceiling fans at the house, Beverly sent a repairman right away to fix the problem.
The area was very quit and exclusive, which I liked a lot. When we wanted to go into town, we could; when we wanted peace & quiet, we could go back "home".
The first morning I woke up, I looked out the window and there was a baby deer sitting in the back yard. At that moment, I knew I picked the right place for me! The property is not on the beach, but the beach is close enough to drive in just a few minutes. When we wanted a little extra pampering, we visited the nearby Bucaneer hotel. The Divi casino isn't far either, if you want to go gamble or for live entertainment.
I would definitely recommend anyone to stay at this property - the price was reasonable and the location was away, but still close to everything. When I come back to the island, I would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful retreat location with more amenities than you could ask for. Quiet location, open spaces and of course a great pool a few feet from the doorway.
Very clean, well maintained, bright, secure and open concept layout.
We golfed at Carambola and Bucanner (the only 2 real courses on the island). There is also a great small private beach 1-2 miles from this villa.
Above all, Bev is an absolute wonderful host and made us feel at home.
I would say that this is a great choice for anyone - families, a few couples or a relaxing getaway for men and/or woman.
Thanks again for making our vacation ideal!
