St. Croix Villa Rental Photos and Description

SPECIAL OFFER! Extend your stay by one day for just $195

Bella Sera by the Sea -

The owners chose to build this luxurious 6,000 square foot villa on scenic Grapetree Point after traveling throughout the Caribbean to virtually every island. Just up the hill from Bella Sera is the Contessa Nadia D'Navarro's spectacular castle, and, indeed, this quiet scenic locale, on the east end of this Virgin Island, is enjoyed only by a special few.

Bella Sera is lushly landscaped with palms and tropical flowers, wonderful scents complemented with the mesmerizing sound of the turquoise Caribbean waves rolling in below . Here you will spend languorous days relaxing in the plentiful shaded or sunny sitting areas, relaxing on softly cushioned furniture to accommodate your every mood.

The fabulous pool and grotto area with waterfalls is complemented with a water slide and large adult foam floats that transform the pool into an inviting play area or a peaceful haven for drifting away, listening to your favorite music on the professional outdoor sound system.

The days here slowly melt away until the sun gloriously sets. It is time to move to the hot tub or the movie size 80'' LCD TV with unlimited streaming movies.

For dinner, enjoy a tropical dinner in the comfortably furnished outdoor pavilion complete with wet bar, fridge and gas grill` overlooking the ocean front.

This is barefoot luxury at its very best.

THE POOL (you will be spoiled forever): The pool is luxuriously heated to 85 - 89 F. Enjoy your 'float therapy' with the comfy adult foam floats accompanied by your favorite music on the outdoor sound system. The rock waterfall in the shallow grotto sitting area cascades into the pool, creating a nice relaxing shaded area in the pool. Two bridges span the pool above and below, for easy access back and forth.

Our hot tub is spectacularly set at the edge of the cliff with the waves crashing in below.

For the children, we have a box full of pool toys and smaller floats, and a fabulous water slide ( see photo). There is a small shallow play area at the entry for non-swimming children, but most of the pool is 4- 5 feet deep.

No luxury pool is complete without a poolside bath, large shaded pavilion, granite and glass block wet bar, ice maker, gas grill, Margartitaville frozen drink maker, and fridge. What a great day!

THE BEDROOMS ( be lulled to sleep by the waves): Each bedroom has spectacular ocean views. Soft, comfy linens and mattresses throughout. Each lovely decorated bedroom is air conditioned with an en suite bathroom that is also a piece of art. The guest bedrooms each have large windows overlooking the ocean and feature a patio with lounge furniture. For additional children (7-8 people) we have two 16 inch elevated air beds with head board.

The spacious master bedroom is honeymoon style. Lace canopied king bed with a nice sitting area and a walkout balcony to the waves crashing in below. You will enjoy brilliantly starry and moon-lit nights on the balcony's double chaise lounge. And the bathroom is HUGE! A work of art with a deep jetted jacuzzi overlooking the Caribbean.

All the bedrooms have DISH TV and DVD. Each has an alarm clock with IPOD/IPhone docks and players.

THE KITCHEN - (a view for the gourmet chef)

Start with the stainless steel appliances: DeLonghi expresso/cappucino and coffee maker; SubZero Pro glass fridge and freezer; and,Wolf range, double oven, griddle and grill. Add to that every cookware item made by LeCreuset and you are set for a large gourmet feast or a quiet dinner for two.

THE TECHNOLOGY (you will be surprised): You will find all the tech comforts of home. High speed internet with ethernet or WI-FI connection throughout the villa or grounds. Each room has telephone and intercom connecting every area of this large villa.

**This is a GREEN villa. Yes, we have all the power consuming luxuries, but while you are pool floating and soaking up the sun's rays, the roof top is producing 8,000 watts of solar power. All our hot water is solar heated, as is the spa and pool. (with electric utility back-up).

**The solar system provides battery back-up power. If you have visited the Caribbean before, you know the power can go down at any time. Here at Bella Sera you will never know, because the electric moves seamlessly to the solar battery packs or generator.

For a fabulous 72 photos slide show of high quality photos of this amazing villa go to www.BellaSeraByTheSea.com and click on the left top corner of the lead photo.

This is our most recent villa we built, and we previously built another ocean front villa next door. We retired to the island full time and are active in the island community as volunteers and supplement our income by renting our villas out to visitors. We love sharing our villas and the island with 'state siders'.

Larry Meyer PLEASE CHECK AVAILABILITY CALENDAR BEFORE INQUIRING purchased this villa in 2010

It is absolutely gorgeous here, we have a love for the sea, and a love for the laid back island life style. the people are wonderful here, and the weather is almost always similarly wonderful.

Paradise on earth?

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 18, 2014

Bella Sera is as beautiful as the pictures show. The owners were attentive to our every need or request. Sitting in our luxurious bedroom with the ocean right outside the glass door provided an ambiance that was so restful, we could not have hoped for more. Our biggest complaint about the place was that we couldn't stay for a year or two. In 30+ years of traveling, this was the first time we did not want to get back to the comfort of our own bed. The pool provided hours of fun. The veranda provided a warm, comfortable place to bask in the sun. Even though the wind blew, it was still warm and because of the wind, almost bug-free. All the rooms were attractive, nicely furnished, with no visible flaws. The nearby restaurants served good food. Point Udall, the easternmost point of the U.S., is just down the road and has some nice views. While Bella Sera doesn't have a sandy beach on the property (that we saw), there are a number of beaches nearby. When we arrived, I wasn't feeling that great (fighting cancer), but by the time we left, I was feeling great. A week later, I'm still feeling great. Just what the doctor ordered.
Owner's Response: So glad that Bella Sera could be part of your cancer therapy....we have had many visitors talk about the "healing" nature of this beautiful spot, and it makes us so glad to have the opportunity to share it with others.

Truly Amazing Paradise

Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful ocean front villa. The pictures on your website were incredible, but seeing it in person was truly amazing! Your decorations, furnishings and amenitiies are awesome as was our week vacation here in paradise!

In addition to swimming in your spectacular pool and sitting on the decks to enjoy the fantastic views and ocean breezes, we also took your advice and went deep sea fishing and snorkeling at the snorkel trail by Buck Island - great experiences both!

We definitley plan to return again, and we'll highly recommend renting your home to our family and friends.

My Husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon the Villa was a great choice. It gave us the privacy we were looking for. Larry provided excellent customer service, when our flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems, he made the necessary contacts for car rental and pick-up. He met us at the airport, and showed us the way to the local grocery store and back to the airport to get our luggage, because it came on a later flight. Even though we arrived a day later than scheduled. The property was clean, and well taken care of, has everything in the villa that you could need.(arm chairs, coolers, grill, coffee pot) Larry was very helpful before we traveled with information on activities, restaurants and other island information. The pictures in the listing doesn't give the view justice, very beautiful. The villa pictures are accurate. I would highly recommend this villa to everyone. We went sailing to Buck Island, enjoyed the history of Christiansted, went to the harbor, Point Udall, Isaac Bay, Jack's Bay, Frederiksted, and toured the rum factories. Thank you Larry for everything, after a long day of traveling, your help got us through! Kimberly And Michael Brekken
Owner's Response: Thank you, Honeymooners!! We were worried that your honeymoon would be spoiled by all the airline and luggage problems, but we worked it all out and so glad to hear you had a wonderful time and that we were able to make things go smoothly once you got settled in!!

Private Paradise

  • Submitted: Dec 14, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
I planned this as a second honeymoon for our 25th anniversary. It was our first vacation sans kids in over 20 years. What a beautiful place. Just as the photos show. Skyline had our rental Jeep ready to go when we arrived. Larry's friend Meg met us and showed us the way to the villa, stopping for groceries along the way. Our mornings were spent having breakfast in the courtyard overlooking the Caribbean watching the clouds change color as the sun rose. Our first day we lounged in and around the pool without a care in the world. The next day we made the hike down to Issac's Bay. The beach and snorkeling were fantastic. While there we saw only three other couples. Larry's recommendations for food and fun are spot on although we found ourselves spending most of our time in our own private paradise (Villa Bella) and only left for dinner. We look forward to making it back to Bella Villa soon.
Owner's Response: Thank you, most often we are able to meet our guests at the airport as we live on island ourselves, but I am so glad Meg did a good job - she is a good friend and a wonderful host to visitors to our little island.
