Overview

St. Croix Villa Rental Photos and Description

Stay an 8th day in low season for $195! PLEASE CHECK OUR CHILD RESTRICTIONS.

Bella Sera by the Sea -

The owners built 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 a well kept secret.

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.

About Larry and Peg Meyer

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 and Peg Meyer purchased this villa in 2010

Why Larry and Peg Meyer chose St. Croix

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Seaside Splendor

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Bella Sera that is described in the overview of the property is as advertised....absolutely spectacular location and sweeping views, fantastic outdoor living spaces and incredible, fun pool and spa, well-appointed kitchen, and comfortable living areas. Gracious hosts who take great care to ensure our enjoyment of their home and the Island. Relaxation is the best activity at this seaside retreat. Try the new restaurant, Zion Modern Kitchen in Christianstead...lovely ambience and great cocktails and menu. If you enjoy sailing, book a trip with Belinda Charters, with Captain Dee and her mate providing a great experience of St. Croix from the sea. Looking forward to a return trip.

INCREDIBLE Felt like movie stars; Romantic/relaxed

  • 5 of 5

Completely "wowed" with our experience and stay at Bella Sera. First: hosts Larry/Peg were so incredibly gracious-from providing vacation info & personally picking us up at the airport to being available by phone anytime during our stay. Property is very clean & beautifully maintained. Views are spectacular from anywhere in the house! We wanted quiet, relaxed & romantic and got it! Doesn't matter if you are a sun or shade lover, there are plenty of cozy lounges for both. We enjoyed stargazing in the comfy 2-person lounge off the master bedroom. Giggled and gawked at the silly "sugar birds" every morning! Cooked in every night and was glad to do so in the finest kitchen around. Although just the two of us, a family of 6 would be very comfortable & each still would be able to find a place of solitude. We enjoyed renting a Jeep from Skyline Car Rentals (Erica was fantastic) & tooling around with the top off enjoying the island's many beaches. Also quite happy staying in, enjoying the pool, frozen cocktails (made from fancy machine) & favorite music on surround sound. We actually watched a few movies on the fabulous TV system (we never find time at home!) We were also quite thankful for the peaceful atmosphere and indoor chapel. I suggest renting now before all the movie stars get wind of this magnificent property!

An Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Bella Sera was just as beautiful as when we vacationed there last January. And we would come back next January if the opportunity presents itself. The pool is so relaxing and clean. The verandas are picture perfect places to sun oneself, read or just enjoy the view. The kitchen was large enough to handle all our culinary needs and the bedroom was a slice of heaven. Day or night, Bella Sera is a delight.

great vaca!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at Bella Sera! The home was spectacular and had everything that we needed for a great family Thanksgiving. We most especially enjoyed the pool and the breathtaking view. This was our first trip to St Croix. We found it to be very welcoming. Beaches and restaurants here were fantastic! We will be back!

Beautiful outdoor space in St. Croix

  • 5 of 5

This was our 11th year going to St. Croix for the Christmas holidays. Larry and Peg's home is simply beautiful, with the best pool/hot tub/outdoor living area on the entire island. We've stayed on all areas of the island over the years and loved the views and outdoor areas in this house the best. There were 6 of us traveling and all agreed that we did not want to leave at the end of our two weeks. Larry and Peg had decorated the house perfectly for Christmas, both indoors and out, again, the most festive decorating we've experienced in our 15+ years of Caribbean Christmas travel. I could go on and on about St. Croix, as it is our "home away from home" and a great island with the best, most friendly people you could imagine. Anyone will be pleased with this villa rental, I'm 100% certain of that!

An absolutely perfect setting for our honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Peg have spared no expense to create the most beautiful, tasteful, relaxing, luxurious home I have ever seen. With gorgeous details everywhere you look, it took us days before our chin stopped dropping. The house itself is in a safe location, perched on a scenic bay, and it is a constant thrill to experience sitting in the hot tub as the waves crash beneath.

As hosts, Larry and Peg were genuinely interested in making sure our time on the island was perfect and helped us get acclimated by taking us to the grocery store after picking us up at the airport. They also recommended some excellent boating and hiking excursions with some outstanding people. It is even more of a pleasure renting this house knowing that the owners have dedicated their lives to volunteering, and improving their community. In some small way, it feels good to know that our rent is supporting their efforts.

We cannot recommend this place or Larry and Peg highly enough.
