We are located on the North Shore of St. Croix in the Salt River National Park and Ecological Preserve. Completed in 2009 Villa Santa Cruz is full of modern amenities but steeped in a rich and storied history. Our hideaway is located on 'Columbus Landing' beach, named for the place where Columbus anchored 17 ships on his second voyage in 1493. Columbus, as the discoverer of this island, gave it it's original name, 'Santa Cruz' or Holy Cross. Though the island took the derivative of St. Croix later, the property carries the name 'Santa Cruz' in honor of the first visit and the original name of the Carribean isle. Come experience the luxury of our tropical paradise.
Customer service was excellent with Austin calling in advance of our arrival informing us he would be at the airport to meet us. He was there and was easy to find since he provided us with a description of what he would be wearing; as we had a rental vehicle Austin led us to the house. Upon arriving at the house Adele was there with welcome drinks and snacks; there was also a dish prepared that our group of 8 was able to share for dinner our first night. Adele and Austin took the time to show us the house along with providing information to ensure we had an enjoyable vacation. The house and amenities were exactly as described in the listing along with being clean, well equipped, and better than expected. If you enjoy grilling there is no better place than the 1493 Bar & Grill overlooking the sea (although one person in our group still thinks it is the ocean); words can not describe this feeling! The location of the house is perfect if you want to get out and enjoy the island as it is an easy drive to all the island has to offer.
We love Villa Santa Cruz! 3 of the bedroom/bath combinations are very spacious and private. The 4th is a bit small but still nice. Great breeze and amazing views. Pool was big. Chef Juliana is a delight! The beach access was not as easy as we had hoped but still within walking distance.
As all the previous reviews mentioned, the place is amazing in every respect. We were four couples in our late sixties who chose to spend most of our time at the Villa. And why not? We enjoyed hanging out around the pool, cooking, grilling, reading books and enjoying each other's company. I think the best feature was the covered porch by the kitchen and living room, which had ample, really comfortable chairs overlooking the pool and water. From there we viewed a full moon, and since my eyes are not perfect, it seemed to me it was full for THREE nights. You don't have to be young to enjoy this place - young at heart is good enough!
Four couples (college buddies plus our wives) traveled from various parts of the U.S. for a long awaited reunion. Villa Santa Cruz was the perfect spot! The right mix if laid-back down time combined with enough activities to make us feel like we accomplished something. The Villa is beautiful: comfortably furnished, well-appointed, comfortable beds and great amenities. The Bar & Grill by the pool the perfect spot for evening cocktails and snacks. We did not want to leave. And no trip would be complete without a visit from Juliana and her husband, Austin. They catered 3 of our meals and each one was better than the last. Villa Santa Cruz comes highly recommended.
By far, the best villa in which we have stayed!!
Customer service was top notch.
The property was beautifully maintained, and the villa lay out was very comfortable and spacious.
We have already booked again for next year....2 weeks this time!
There were 11 of us..... 8 adults, then a 15 yr. old 10yr. old & 7 month old. this house was plenty big enough for all of us. The game room with the pool table was used every evening!
There wasn't much of a "beach" but perfect for fishing or shell searching.
The beach we found was the rainbow Beach. It is beautiful and nice for snorkeling also. We Were there for Thanksgiving so the beach was not crowded at all but could see it being very busy during the high season.
We had 2 cars so we were able to get around but we stayed around the house & pool for the most part. We would stay here again but maybe get out to visit the other islands.
We did not take our passports because we stayed on the US side, but was advised to have passports next time. We had birth certificates for the 10 yr. & 7 month old just in case & had to show them upon leaving at the airport.
