About Debi Howe

My husband and I have traveled to the Caribbean for 20 years and our dream came true with the purchase of this house. We live in Michigan so having a vacation home in St. Croix helps us escape to some warmer weather in the long winters. We have two children who both live in Michigan.

Debi Howe purchased this house in 2004

Why Debi Howe chose St. Croix

We selected this property because number one we wanted to be under the US Flag and two because of the views, the location to amenities, the privacy, the open floor plan and enough room to accommodate all our family and friends when they visit.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite spot is to sit on the pool deck and watch the sea, it is so relaxing and peaceful.

Great Place - Better than the pictures make it look.

  • 5 of 5
I loved my weeklong vacation at this house. My family went there for a week with 2 rental cars. The rental cars are a must. We were met at the airport by the people renting the house and followed them to the house. That was needed at first but I quickly learned the island. It's pretty easy to get around. They even pre-stocked the house with groceries that we picked out since we came in Christmas Day and were concerned about finding anything open. It was great service.

The house is off the beaten path and secluded. The house is very nice and great to hang out in. The living room, dining room and kitchen are all together and open and it makes for great entertaining. It was easy to get around on the island. I particularly liked Buck Island for snorkeling and Issac's Bay was a great secluded beach that also had decent snorkeling. You have to seek out adventure on this island. If you want a resort atmosphere, St. Croix is not for you. If you love cool, small beach towns with their own vibes, St. Croix is the place to explore.

Other great places to see are Cane Beach and Rainbow Beach. It's also worth seeing the bar that has the beer drinking pigs but I can't remember exactly where that was.

Great vacation and a great house.

Excellent! Too much to do! Too little time!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Rhapsody in Blue far exceeded my expectations. My friends and I planned to use the house as a launching point to explore the rest of the island. Upon arrival the stunning ocean view was incredible! To sit pool side with the Caribbean as a backdrop was too much. I hadn't anticipated that I just wouldn't want to leave the house! But alas, leave we did.

From Rainbow Beach to Point Udall, the islands mysteries unfolded. Whether it was the social settings of shopping downtown, the beaches, fine dining to nightclub hopping, or the quiet, all-alone solitude of the island's remotest regions, this house was awesome to return to. I almost couldn't wait to get back home and lounge by the pool. (Even though exploring was really fantastic! You should see the 650 pictures I took!)

When traveling and lodging with friends, it is important to have "private" spaces. This house provided that, and then some. We were able to retire to the lovely guest rooms for private moments and intimate conversation, or pop out into the public areas and be social. The space for both was more than ample. Additionally, all the furnishings, artwork and decor was remarkably tasteful and exuded island charm. It was total comfort at every level, all the way down to the laundry room! (Which we used a lot! Hint.... Don't pack so many clothes.... just wash them there and travel light!) Suffice it to say, we didn't want to leave for home. When you go, plan extra time. Ten days wasn't enough!

Also, when you go, make sure you go to the remote Dominoe Club to give a shaken can of beer to the enormous pigs. They crush it in their teeth and drink it down. Plus, the jungle setting is mysterious and delightful.

Also, if dining out, the Pickled Greek is close by and really fun. Also close is the Buccaneer, and Cane Bay. Some places were a little "out of my league," but at least stop in for a soda, or a cocktail to take in the atmosphere.

Happy travels! I hope to return someday!

Enjoyed this little slice of paradise!

We were lucky enough to stay at Rhapsody in Blue for a week with 3 other couples! Had all of the comforts of home..........but in a tropical setting. The view from the pool & deck is stunning....he perfect place to start the day with a cup of coffee and end the day with a glass of wine. Beautifully decorated, clean, bright and cheery. Lots of living space, very private bedrooms. We cooked in the well outfitted kitchen one night, but there are so many restaurants on the island to eat at, we let them do the cooking for us! So much to do...beaches, snorkeling, shopping & dining, day trips to BVI, something for everyone. We wanted for nothing but more time to enjoy it! Wish we could have stayed two weeks! But we will be back.

You will have everything you need for a wonderful time. I highly recommend this property for rent. Thank you so much Big Blue!!! Sharon

The only place to stay in St. Croix!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed at this beautiful villa 8 times. It has a fantastic view of the ocean, while being secluded and private. Just minutes from any activity, ocean, shopping, golf, marina, dining... Since it is privately owned, we are always confident that it will be in pristine shape on each of our visits. The villa is spacious enough to share the rental costs with multiple couples, making it even more affordable then a hotel.
Sitting out at the pool during the daytime in the sun or during the evening, star gazing is a vacation all on it's own. Throw your clothes in your suit case and relax, this villa comes fully equipped. Beach towels, hair dryers, coolers, kitchen appliances and utensils.
The only thing you need to be careful of is.... St. Croix is addictive! You will be back!
