|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
This house is just amazing! Situated to capture the tradewinds, amazing views and extra ordinary accommodations... With a huge master bedroom and 2 amazing other rooms. This 3 bedroom 4 1/2 bath is just drop dead gorgeous, from spectacular views to wonderful easterly breezes. It has almost everything. But come and see for yourself and experience the outdoor shower or lounge under the covered gazebo and gaze at unparalleled views of Buck Island and Christiansted. Come and enjoy.
I am a lady that goes above and beyond to make sure you have a fabulous time on my Island... From airport pick ups to grocery delivered, to newsletters of events that are happening while you are here... I will make sure u enjoy your stay.
Donna Ford purchased this house in 2010
This is a newly built house with all the high end things you can imagine. With outdoor shower and fabulous views how do you go wrong.
If you like open air this is your house... They have sliding doors, to big windows that open to the unique views. With a/c in the master bedroom to cool off if you get to hot...
It was our first time in St. Croix and we loved it. The house is really beautiful and it appears even nicer then the pictures show and has all the amenities you need. The views are incredible and you can hear the soothing sounds of waves crashing on the beach from the distance. The beach is in walking distance from the house about 5 minutes away but unfortunately not really adequate for swimming because of the waves and the rocky beach.
What I would like to point out is that the master suite and the the two guest suites are only accessible thru like a court yard what you don't really see on the pictures. To get an better idea of the incredible architectural design of the villa go on YouTube and type the following in your browser - www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWfF7wOjjaY
We stayed here with our two kids and their grand parents and had a fantastic time. The pool is solar heated and therefore the kids spend hours in there every day. A special thanks goes to the property manager Donna Ford who took care of really everything!
I highly recommend this house and of cause working wit Donna.
We've been visiting St. Croix on vacation since 1998 and spent our first full winter on the island this year. We knew we wanted to rent a villa for about five weeks of our 10 week stay so that we could entertain friends. During our 2014 visit, we previewed about 15 villas and said "game over" when Donna Ford took us to see La Mer Caribe. While we had wanted to find a place on the East End, we decided to give the Judith's Fancy neighborhood a try by renting this villa and we were delighted that we did. La Mer Caribe is a fantastic value for the money and we loved every minute of our stay.
From the moment you enter, you will be blown away by the view, the constant breezes, and the upscale feel. Complete with a working fountain, a walk in pantry and two bathrooms in the MBR, this place has it all. We particularly loved the outdoor seating area with both a living area and dining area under cover. The pool is delightful and quite large by villa standards. The kitchen is massive which made it easy to use when we had two other couples visit. And the layout of the house, with a separate 'pod' for the MBR/laundry/sewing room/office, made it quite private when friends visited.
The pictures are an accurate description of most of the house although the living room now has cushioned wicker furniture instead of the leather furniture. The house is fully equipped with more towels and linens than you could ever use in a month and you can even use the automatic garage opener to keep your car out of the sun.
We found that we enjoyed being in the Judiths Fancy community as it is convenient to town and more convenient to the West End and North Shore than the East End. Plus, the neighborhood has many paved streets for walking and jogging. You probably won't use the beach in "The Fancy" as it's rocky and rough, but there are so many great beaches on St. Croix that you will want to try.
We were tempted to try a new villa for 2016 and looked at several more on the East End; however, none compared to the upscale feel, view and price of La Mer Caribe. So we have booked five more weeks in 2016! There are a few things that we feel would improve the villa: better beach chairs, some spices, labeling of the light switches (trust me, there are a million of them!!), and an instruction/welcome book with info on the house and area, but we trust that Donna will work on those things and they are just minor issues.
Rent this house....you won't be disappointed!!
We just finished a week and a few days at this house. My wife, three teenagers and I. We all loved it and did not want to leave. Great, comfortable outdoor space. Very clean. Very interesting architectural design that made great use of the wonderful view. The pictures are a fair representation of the house; actually, the photos understate it. Also, the real estate agent, Donna and her son, Daniel we very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend this house.
This was our first trip to St. Croix and we were originally supposed to be in another villa. However, our property manager and host, Donna, told us that the villa we were booked into was in no condition to receive guests and suggested putting us in La Mer Caribe.
At first, we were a little reluctant, but we are so glad she did! La Mer Caribe was absolutely wonderful! It has a fantastic view of the ocean, a gorgeous master suite and guest suites, pool and super indoor and outdoor living areas. Although we did go out and enjoy Christiansted and other attractions on St. Croix, it was great just relaxing in the pool and cooking on the grill.
On Monday, it had been storming a little and we stayed in that evening and grilled outside. We had just sat down to eat and the power went off. Let me tell you, it was very dark! In 30 to 40 seconds, the backup generator started and restored the power! It ran for about 40 minutes, then the lights blinked and the normal power was restored. The generator ran another minute or two and then shut down. How cool is that!
I also have to praise and thank our host Donna. We were going to arrive late following a full day of travel and she volunteered to pick up a few supplied for us so we didn’t have to go out that evening. She met us at the airport and we followed her to the villa. When we arrived, she showed us around and gave us operational tips on staying there. And yes, the supplies were all there and put away. Thanks Donna!
As I said, this was our first trip to St. Croix, but will not be our last! When we return, we will most definitely work with Donna again and will most likely ask to stay at La Mer Caribe if it is available.
