Situated at the edge of the Caribbean, SeaViewPlay was built in the year 2000 as a private tropical retreat by the owners of a famed Resort and Spa. Sea View Play is a magnificent villa directly on the Caribbean Sea. In fact every room in this 5,000 square foot house faces the Ocean. Since the house faces North and has 180 degree views, you can see both Sunrises and Sunsets. We are on the 'rainbow coast' and the rainbows are fantastic. Whether your party is 2 or 12, you will all have the space you need for both intimacy and privacy. While many vacation properties accommodate large groups, they do not have the breathing space that Sea View Play affords each guest. SeaViewPlay is designed differently from most other houses. Being one of the larger houses on St. Croix, SeaViewPlay is configured into an East and West Wing (each with separate kitchen facilities and living areas).
If this isn't Heaven, what is?: Enter the Villa through the double Mahogany doors to the Atrium filled with beautiful plantings and look through the Great Room to sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea. The Great Room is the pride of the house with high vaulted ceilings in the old plantation tradition covers the huge common space. As you gaze out of every window and door, the stunning views and close proximity of the magnificent Caribbean Sea will memorize you.
We are very excited about our exquisite new fresh water pool and large deck off the Great Room. The oceanfront deck has a pergola to protect you from the sun, a bar for you to relax, and an outdoor kitchen to make wonderful. breakfasts, lunches, and romantic dinners under the stars. For those who enjoy cooking, the outdoor kitchen is complete with plenty of counter space, an outdoor drop-in barbecue, sink, and refrigerator. The Deck is the perfect venue for outdoor dining or simply a place to gather at dusk to watch the sun sink spectacularly into the sea. The deck and pool are just the perfect spot for ‘limein’, the Crucian word for “not doing much of anything at all”.
At either end of the main house is a Master Bedroom Suite, each with its own private bath. Two additional large bedrooms and bathrooms, both with ocean views, are situated mid house. The separate and private cottage has a master bedroom, living room, bath, washer & dryer, and full kitchen. The two full kitchens and two washer/dryers in the main house offer flexibility not normally encountered in a vacation rental. The oceanfront deck and balcony that wraps around the seaside of the house is accessible from every room.
The spacious Great Room has vaulted ceilings, an indoor atrium, and Lanai folding doors that open the Great Room to the deck and new pool.
A rare feature of this spectacular property is its natural tidal swimming pool. Constantly replenished by the waves breaking just outside the pool, relaxing or taking a moonlight swim is an experience like no other. The small tropical fish enjoying the pool with you only make the experience even more special. Children especially like to swim and snorkel in the safety of the pool.
SeaViewPlay also enjoys a panoramic view of St. Thomas, St. John, and the British Virgin Islands. Just minutes away is Cane Bay, with its palm lined beach, world class diving at the Wall, and wonderful casual beachside restaurants.
If you play golf, we have an exclusive arrangement with the Carambola Golf Club for all of our guests to play golf for free during their stay. There are no greens fees. The Carambola Golf Club also has tennis courts, swimming pools, and a restaurant that are open to all our guests.
If you dive, we can arrange a discount package for diving for your group. The Wall at Cane Bay is one of the best diving sites in the world. Just let us know.
Our Villa Manager, Phillip, will greet you at the airport, escort you to the villa, assist you with your groceries and act as your personal concierge & property manager during your stay.
A Special Place for Special Events: SeaViewPlay, situated on 1.3 acres of beautiful grounds covered with Pink and Red Bougainvillea, Palm Trees and numerous tropical plants throughout the grounds is the perfect place for to stroll, gather for a special celebration, or have a beautiful wedding.
No matter why you come, your time at SeaViewPlay is spent taking a break from the rest of the world. Your life the way it should be.
We always dreamed about being in the Virgin Islands. We love St. Croix because it is undiscovered and looks like many different places: Hawaii, Northern California and of course, the colorful Caribbean paradise which it is. Contact us and we will be happy to tell you about all of the wonderful things we have discovered on this island that will make your vacation, or your special event, a memorable experience.
Joel Linchitz & Lucy Lasky purchased this villa in 2009

What more could you want for valentines day but sun and sand. Left RI before a blizzard with single digit temps and came to Seaview play. What a great time. From our day trip to Buck Island to our nighttime Kayaking. Roudy Joes is def some place to go and eat. Had fish tacos yum. Bread pudding and home made ice cream was fab. House was great. What ever we needed or had a problem with was taken care of quickly. Would def come back
We have had the pleasure to visit St. Croix once before, and we had a great time. We stayed at SeaViewPlay on our second trip and it was even a better time!The property lived up to our expectations and more. It was a beautiful place with beautiful views and easy to get to many of the great spots on the island from there.The owners frequently checked on how we were doing and they had a wonderful support staff in place to help us if we had any problems.Everything about our stay at SeaViewPlay was first class! Most of the best restaurants on the island were within five minutes of our house, as well as the Carambola Resort,which we had full use of with our stay at SeaViewPlay.St. Croix is great, SeaViewPlay makes it better ,go there,stay there and have a super vacation.
Property was very clean and well appointed. It was safe enough for four toddlers. We enjoyed the deck pool and the coral pools. We enjoyed the closeness to Cane Bay for snorkeling and meals. The guest access to Carambola Resort can't be beat!
The owners and manager were very attentive to our needs. I would certainly recommend SVP to friends and family. We plan to return.
Seaviewplay is so much more than a vacation rental. It is an immersive life experience. Our family of twelve ranged in age from 8 to 73 and everyone was in awe of the villa, private pool, huge deck and the expansive open-air great room. The five bedrooms are all air conditioned and well appointed. With 5000 square feet of space everyone had plenty of room to be together or enjoy private time. The sound of the surf just below was mesmerizing and the views of the Caribbean coast were spectacular and ever-changing. Owners Joel Linchitz & Lucy Lasky provided excellent customer service before and during the trip and made certain that all of our needs were met. Seaviewplay is a one-of-a-kind opportunity not to be missed!
We were four couples, from the outskirts of NYC, who stumbled upon a serene oasis this past August 2014. Our hopes were to escape the hustle and bustle, of our active lives, for five days. What greeted us, at this extraordinary St. Croix destination, more than satisfied our every expectation.
Sea View Play. Enter the white gates, down the driveway, to a house that accommodated us superlatively. With four, nice sized bedrooms in the main house and a cozy cottage just around the way, privacy could be obtained if wished. Yet, most of the time was spent in the grand living room, back porch and tidal pool. The view, out the back, was something that took everyone's breath away at first sight. Sliding glass doors opened up to pure ecstasy. One phone call away and you could enjoy a massage, outside, with nothing but the sound of the waves crashing along the shore...just like we did!
The location of Sea View Play is outstanding. It is in close proximity to the airport, food mart and local restaurants. Speaking of restaurants..leave those fancy clothes at home! Tshirts, shorts and flip flops met the requirements of the casual dress code just famously. Restaurants such as Rowdy Joe's, Off the Wall, Carambola Bay, Angry Nate's and Above the Cliff were recommended to us. Delicious!
A fan of scuba diving? For a short drive away, one could see the likes of turtles, fluke, eel, rays, pufferfish, lion fish, seahorses and so much more. Thanks to our two scuba-certified friends, we went home with great footage of all of these incredible sea life creatures.
The motto of our trip was, "This doesn't suck"! Well, it most certainly didn't. We are already counting the days until our return to this hidden gem that is called...Sea View Play.
There were nine of us who spent our vacation at Sea View Play. I cannot say enough about the property. The design was the best part as it allowed all of us to have separate rooms when we needed them but yet had a large and very spacious family room when we all wanted to just relax. It was within walking distance to some great restaurants and bars. My flight was delayed and Joel, Lucy and Phillip were available to answer my calls even though it was midnight!! I had never been to St. Croix and had no idea how to get to Sea View Play but they were their for me every step of the way! If I had one criticism it would be they need a new grill but everything else was fabulous and I would HIGHLY recommend it for a wonderful destination!!!
