About CHRISTINE MEYER

My husband renovated Southern Cross & made it an airy and gorgeous villa. We had actually rented it before we purchased it. We lived in it for a year.. it was a year of cool ocean breezes, morning coffee on the deck watching the activity in the bay and falling asleep to the Caribbean Sea crashing on the rocks below...... We pride ourselves in sharing with our guests these experiences in a comfortable and beautiful villa!.

CHRISTINE MEYER purchased this villa in 2001

What makes this villa unique

We have lived on St. John for 27 years, and never take the beauty and lifestyle for granted. We love when people come to St. John and are totally blown away by the natural beauty and enjoy the island we have come to be so proud to be a part of.

Gorgeous views!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here for our wedding with our wedding party and we had such an excellent time! The house was beautiful, well kept with unique and island themed decor. The views were spectacular to wake up to in the morning and grill out for dinner. Highly recommend Southern Cross for your trip to my favorite place on earth! :)

An excellent villa for family, friends and a quiet relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have spent multiple vacations on St John and usually stay at a resort. With the recent addition of a baby to our family we asked our parents to join us for an extra set of hands (and to enjoy St John). Given the additional people, we searched for a villa that could provide us privacy, great views, plenty of space, on site pool, and be appropriate for a 7 month old baby. We reviewed many properties and decided that Southern Cross seemed to be a good fit. However, we were concerned about a property just below Southern Cross that was being renovated.

Well...Southern Cross was indeed a great property and made for an excellent vacation. The owners were very response to our initial inquiries regarding the property including keeping us informed about the lower property renovation progress. In the end, while construction was taking place during our stay, it was only during the morning and early afternoon and not particularly noisy.

The villa itself is situated along a largely private drive resulting in privacy. It was spacious, quiet, with a clean pool, nicely furnished, plenty of toiletries, stocked pantry, and clean. The views were spectacular and the breezes were fantastic meaning most of the day we had the doors open to take in the trade winds. At night we used the air conditioning in the bedrooms.

Finally, and not to be overlooked, is the service you receive while on site. Laurie and Craig of Crandall on St John Property Management were phenomenal. From the time we booked the reservation, Laurie and Craig were pleasant and responsive. They arranged our Jeep rental and offered a provisioning service. Upon our arrival, they met us at the ferry and transported us to the Villa where our Jeep awaited. Additionally, they transported us back to the ferry at the end of our trip.

Would happily stay again and recommend others do so as well, just don't take the week we want to come back!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, along with my sister and her husband, one daughter and her new husband, and our other daughter with her boyfriend, had been planning our return to St. John for quite sometime. After a lot of looking at various rental villas, we chose Southern Cross and we couldn't be happier with our choice. If you want location, this is it. If you want views, this is it. If you want to relax, this is it. Southern Cross is well laid out to catch the trade winds and for star gazing while sipping your rum drink by the pool in the evening. Christine and Rich take great care of the villa and their guests. When Christine learned that the villa below Southern Cross was undergoing some renovations, she not only contacted us to let us know, but also took measures at the Villa to ensure minimal noise and view problems. As a result, our stay was peacful and relaxing.

There are numerous dining options but I strongly recommend at least one evening at their restaurant, The Lime Inn. Whether you choose the blue cheese stuffed steak, the jerk seasoned snapper or the lobster roll, you can't go wrong.

If you're looking for a great snorkling spot, besides Trunk Bay, try Haulover Bay out on the East end. Small and relatively undiscovered, it is teeming with wonderful sea life.

Thank you Christine and Rich. We will be back.

Wonderful Views and Trade Winds

  • 5 of 5
This was a special trip for our family with us renewing our vows on Hawksnest Beach and our 2 granddaughters (2 & 4) being baptized the same day. My husband and I had the house to ourselves the first week then the family joined us for the second. The accommodations worked will for the children since we could lock them into the downstairs bedroom at night. We used a baby monitor (which we left) for them to talk to us in the morning when they wanted to be freed. They knew they could not be downstairs without an adult but we still blocked the stairs down by a couple of chairs (you could also rent baby gates if you would be more comfortable). The owners were great helping us with all our concerns prior and during our stay. The pictures you see on the listing are very accurate. We felt very fortunate that we were high enough to get the beautiful trade winds (hate air conditioning) just be sure to close the doors if there is any chance of heavy rain (learned this the hard way). Spent much time at HIgh Tides with some of the locals (best conch fritters). Didn't find the hamburger at the Rum Hut until the last few days. There G burger was even better than In and Out Calif. burgers. If we knew it was there we would have left several pounds heavier. Thank you Christine and Richard.

Beautiful Villa and Views

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at Southern Cross for a week in May, 2013. First I'd like to say the the website pictures don't do the villa or the fabulous views justice. The villa is beautiful but very inviting. The kitchen is very well equipped and we needed nothing. We ate all our meals in because we had our grandbaby with us and the kitchen had everything we needed--including some spices, lots of kitchen towels, dishwasher detergent, dish detergent, etc. There was also some plastic wrap, foil and plenty of trash bags, which is not something normally provided in any rentals I've been in. The week we were there it was rather windy -- which was welcome but if you were cooking on the gas stove, you had to shut the sliding glass doors or the flame would go out. The views from the deck were just breathtaking. The villa was very clean, had plenty of coolers for the beach and we were provided with plenty of beach towels and bath towels. So often a rental will come with only 1 bath towel per person. The laundry area even had detergent if you needed it. Our family has been raving about Southern Cross to everyone we know. Loved that it was close to town but very private. The pool is a nice size and there were plenty of lounge chairs around it. I would also highly recommend using the provisioning service that Laurie and Craig Crandall provide -- for a very reasonable fee of $40 they provided every item that was on our grocery list--and it was quite a long list since we were a big group. It was so nice to be able to settle into the villa and enjoy cold drinks, snacks and sandwiches after a long day of travelling. The Crandall's also made our car reservation--we requested a mini-van since we had 6 adults and a baby and we asked to pick it up at the airport in St. Thomas and then we took the barge over to St. John. That was far better than when we last visited St. John and had to get a cab to the ferry, and then pick up our car on St. John. We were all so happy with our stay and have been asking ourselves why it took us 15 years to come back from when last there and why we wasted time visiting other Caribbean islands that don't come anywhere near the beauty of St. John and the peace of mind with being able to travel anywhere on the island and feel safe. And then there are the beaches--our favorite was Cinnamon Bay---but they are all beautiful. Be aware that Trunk Bay charges -- only $4/pp. And the villa owner called our last night to see how our stay was.

Amazing Property with Excellent Views

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent stay at Southern Cross in St. John. There were six total people in our party and we stayed for eight nights. The house was beautiful, easy to get to and had excellent views. The owners were very accommodating, as was the staff at the management company that manages the property. The owners actually own a restaurant in St. John and we had an opportunity to meet them as well. The management company allowed us to send them a list of foods and beverages we wanted in the house when we arrived so it made for an immediate relaxing and welcoming stay. I would definitely recommend renting a car if you stay here as it is about a 10 minute drive from Cruz Bay and you will want to check out the numerous beaches on the island. Overall we had an excellent time and I would recommend the property to anyone.
