Overview

St. Croix House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

High on a breezy hillside overlooking the white sand beach at Smugglers Cove, Smugglers Retreat commands a sweeping view of St. Croix's east end, Buck Island and the Caribbean Sea.

Colorful tropical terraced landscaping surrounds this very private home and pool. As you step onto the walk way to the house, you know something special awaits—the start of a perfect vacation!

Entering the great room with it’s flat screen TV, and comfortable mahogany couches, the blues of the Caribbean Sea catch your eye. A small dining area shares the great room.

Step out on the wrap around deck and take a look down on the palm trees lining the white sand beach; it’s a picture postcard view. Bedroom 2 is directly to the right of the great room. This room has 2 twin beds which can easily be made up as a king.

The well equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare a quick snack or gourmet meal to enjoy at one the teak tables on the deck. The laundry room adjoins the kitchen.

The master Bedroom is on the left or the house and overlooks the pool. This room has a king bed. Bedroom 3 is on the lower lever and very private. This room has a King bed, mini fridge and large deck to enjoy the views.

The most outstanding thing about Smugglers Retreat are the dramatic views from everywhere—the bedrooms, pool and decks. A special spot is the hammock, perfect for sunning and relaxing.

Smugglers Retreat is a dream come true vacation spot for couples or a family with older children.

About Allison Williams

My family currently resides in Virginia. We fell in love with the Virgin Islands and after more than two years of searching, we purchased this dream home on St. Croix as an investment/vacation/retirement home.

Allison Williams purchased this house in 2010

Why Allison Williams chose St. Croix

We fell in love with the Virgin Islands during several sailing trips. In over 2 years of house hunting we visited Tortola, St. John, St. Thomas, Turks and Caicos, and St. Croix. We chose St. Croix for its personality, charm and amenities.

What makes this house unique

Our home is a true island paradise with panoramic views of the Caribbean, tropical breezes, and privacy! Enjoy the views from every room, private pool, patios and hammock!! We are walking distance to an incredible palm-lined, white sand beach and a short drive from restaurants, bars, shopping, and other amenities - including the casino!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Smugglers was the perfect house for anyone wanting to enjoy this island! Being on the east end was excellent because after exploring you could retreat to the quiet oasis and enjoy a swim. At first it seemed a little far but we ended up loving that it was private with a private beach... The view is spectacular from anywhere in the home. I found the house to be the highlight of our vacation. The set up of the home was ideal to include the landscaping, location, bedrooms, pool, deck, outside music, air conditioning for sleeping, all the extras (games) & on & on. We truly found relaxation on this trip because of that awesome view and lovely home! Thank you to the owners, well done....

GREAT stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We returned to Smuggler's Retreat for the 2nd time to bring in the New Year. We absolutely love this place!!!! It's familiar, like a second home! Everything was clean and well-maintained as usual. The owners and property managers were so helpful and always available. We love the beach below the house. That was a new find on this visit. Very private and serene. It's hard to get off the front porch for the first day or so, just taking in the breathtaking views of Buck Island and the Caribbean. This home has everything you might need on vacation. Thanks again for allowing us to share your beautiful home! We will be returning soon I hope!

We just returned from our vacation at Smugglers Retreat. Beautiful! The views are absolutely breathtaking! The villa was very clean and inviting. The "island breeze" was a little more than just a breeze but it kept the villa cool and we never even thought about using th a/c. The pool water was a little chilly but that was a small thing! It would have been nice to have a TV in the bedroom. All my questions were answered promptly before we got there. You need to rent a car because it is a little ways from some of the islands activities, but it was fun to explore the island whenever we wanted. Just jump in the car and go! No cell phone service here and the phone wasnt working,but we had Wifi so communicated via email. Overall, a very relaxing and laid back vacation! Just what we needed!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review and for choosing Smuggler's Retreat for your girls' getaway! I am glad that you enjoyed our house - and your stay in STX! You're the first to suggest TVs in the bedrooms. We are usually too wiped out from our days of sun and fun for TV, but we will definitely consider adding them. Sorry about the phone service, we will look into that too. Please visit again soon!

The perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do not do this home justice. The setting is beautiful, from the gorgeous landscaping to the beautifully decorated home. The privacy of the home allows you to sleep with all windows and doors open. You can hear the surf below you. The cool breezes made the home's air conditioning unnecessary.

This home is furnished with everything you will need to make your vacation feel like a home away from home. Upon arrival, the rental agency met us at the airport and escorted us to the home. They made sure to tell us about all the wonderful features of this home and the surrounding area. The owners also left a binder for us, detailing all the area attractions and recommendations. The home also had everything we needed for our excursions, including beach chairs, towels, snorkels, fins, books and games.

The home is in the most beautiful and undeveloped area of the island, so it's landscape is still unspoiled. It was wonderful to enjoy the sights of St. Croix all day and then escape back to the paradise of this secluded retreat. The setting is so beautiful that we didn't want to leave. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone visiting St. Croix. You will not be disappointed!

Amazing vacation home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Smugglers Retreat in December 2011. The house was perfect. It seemed like everything we needed was provided. Loved the pool and deck. Did I mention the two naps I took in the hammock ovelooking the Caribbean - amazing! Had breakfast and dinner outside almost every day. Couldn't have asked for a more relaxing vacation. The living room was so comfortable as was the bed in the master bedroom. As luck would have it there was a full moon during our vacation. Night after night the beautiful moonlight glistened off the water while we sat on the deck. We could also see the moonlight from the master bedroom. Several restaurants and bars close. Our favorite was The Blue Terrace. Also enjoyed. The lobster and Cobe burger at Duggans was a real treat. Service was fantastic. The staff at Vacation St. Croix provided excellent customer service. Marti found this home for us based on
our wish list - this house met each and every wish we had! We will definitely come back to Smugglers Retreat. It was abvious the owners take great care to make sure guests have an amazing vacation experience on St. Croix. Thank you so much.

sitting on the top of paradise

  • 5 of 5
I just returned from the most fabulous two week vacation at Smugglers on St. Croix.
I am a travel agent and have stayed at many villas in the Caribbean and I am very picky! Smugglers is not the most delux villa I have ever stayed in but it is right at the top of my favorite list. It had everything a person needs to spend days having fun and relaxing. It is decorated with a Caribbean flavor and we felt very comfortable inside and out. It is being well cared for and is very clean. It sets up high enough to have a great breeze (never used the AC) and the view is abosultley septacular. The pool area is very inviting and the grounds are lovely with flowers and aloe plants. The only draw back would be the road to the villa is somewhat bumpy but not a problem or an issue. St. Croix has fabulous restaurants (we did use the very nice grill to make dinner several times during our stay), shopping offered some great island items (mocki jumbies), great glass art, clothing and the usual items. Grocery shopping is always an interesting experience and just adds to the fun. If the Casino interest you it is worht the visit. My favorite moments at Smugglers were the beautiful sunrises with the tourquise water and a Mimosa in my hand. I look forward to a return visit to St. Croix and plan to stay at Smugglers next time!
