Overview

St. Croix Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Located on a cliff in an upscale neighborhood on the East End of St. Croix, Villa Paradiso boasts one of the most spectacular ocean views on the island. Completed in 2011, this brand new home has spectacular, million dollar views that will delight even the most discerning traveler. The villa offers three separate living areas with their own terraces allowing couples to enjoy maximum privacy. There are breathtaking ocean views from each of the 3 bedrooms and private patios.

Tastefully decorated with interesting antiques, four poster beds and bright Caribbean colors, the home is a perfect retreat for two or three couples. The great room opens to the spacious terrace with open air dining and outdoor recliners. The knife edge saline pool blends with the ocean and the underwater benches are the perfect spot for sipping cocktails and watching the sunset .

We are sorry but the property is not suitable for children. Children must be 16 years or older. We are firm on this.

The villa has a whole house generator in case of power failures.

Netflix movies and a Wii station are available.

About Colette Diegel

We are a family of four from Minnesota. My husband Tim, is still working so we are happy to rent our home to others who would enjoy it. We have two daughters,Clare and Shannon, aged 27 and 28. My Dad from Ireland is a regular visitor also. He is 92!

Colette Diegel purchased this villa in 2011

Why Colette Diegel chose St. Croix

We choose the site because of the staggering view. We had a condo at the Reef nearby and would drive up and dream of the home we would build. We built our home in 2011 to take advantage of the amazing view and the lovely trade winds.

What makes this villa unique

The privacy of this executive location is wonderful. The house was built with three distinct guest suites with their own private balconies where couples could retreat to for some quiet time. There is ample deck space for communal activities and the pool is knock out focal point for the whole house.

Best. Vacation. Ever!

  • 5 of 5
We were fortunate to spend a week at the Villa & every minute there was heavenly. From the early stages of planning the trip, Colette was so friendly & helpful & couldn't have been nicer. I felt like I had met a new friend. I wanted this trip to be special for my daughters & granddaughter (graduating from HS), & it was special. It was such a blessing & the four of us have memories we'll treasure forever. We arrived late in the evening and were met at the airport by Bobbie & Bob, who are 2 of the nicest people I have ever met. They escorted us (in our rental car) to the villa. When we walked down the entry path to the front door, I knew the place was going to be special. The inviting entry path with its tropical foliage led us to the delightful foyer with a special sign with all our names on it! Our eyes immediately caught the view of the ocean under the stars, just beyond the zero-edge pool. We entered the living area that opens to the beautiful kitchen, which would make any chef excited. The villa is beautifully decorated! The wall of sliding doors in the living area opened the entire length of the room & allowed us to enjoy the ocean breeze. The place has to be seen to be truly appreciated--pictures don't capture the beauty of it all. We had plenty of space with the 3 private bedrooms & each one had a beautiful view of the ocean, with its own private balcony.
Thanks to suggestions that Colette offered, as well as those from Bobbie & Bob, we went on several island adventures, & thoroughly enjoyed meeting many friendly people. From disco bingo & crab races at the Deep End Restaurant/bar, the Sweeny Tour, which included the Botanical Gardens, Cruzan Rum Factory, beer drinking pigs; as well as Horseback riding; ferry over to the Hotel on the Cay beach in Christiansted, & several other beaches along the way. We were told by locals about the tradition of wearing "hook" bracelets, so we went to Sonya's and got ours. We ate at Duggans, Cafe Christine's, Galleon & The Deep End-all were excellent! Our favorite excursion was the sailing/snorkeling trip to Buck Island with Capt. Carl & Dana. They were so friendly & helpful & sailing is the way to go. It was a relaxing day! We all hated to leave Villa Paradiso. It was truly an island paradise. Thank you Colette & your husband Tim, & Bobbie & Bob. We really appreciated everything you did to make our vacation so special. Can't wait to return. Sincerely, Gail, Christine, Kimberly & Sydney

Absolutely Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I vacationed at Villa Paradiso for two magnificent weeks! The villa overlooks the beautiful Caribbean waters, is private and secluded all at the same time. The views and the grounds are spectacular! The amenities are endless and luxurious. When we first arrived we were greeted by a very friendly woman named Bobbi and welcomed with a complimentary bottle of Cruzan Rum. What a nice touch! We enjoyed breakfast and lunch outdoors in the inner courtyard, and dipping in the refreshing saltwater pool. We loved hiking to Jack's Bay, Isaacs Bay and Grapetree Beach which were just beautiful and private. Two of our favorite restaurants were Café Savant and Kendricks. Shopping in the town of Christiansted was so fun! Loved all the different shops! We visited the Cruzan Rum Distillery and the beer drinking pigs! Two trips we recommend to anyone visiting the island. At night we would just sit in the inner courtyard and look at all the amazing stars and listen to the waves crashing! Villa Paradiso was luxury all the way and we would highly recommend renting this beautiful home so you can see for yourself! Can't wait to return!!! Thank you Colette for sharing your paradise with us!

Paradiso says it all!

  • 5 of 5
My wife & I spent a spectacular week at Villa Paradiso the first week of May, 2014. Our initial request regarding the dates was answered the same day by the owner, Colette, who couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Confirming the dates & paying couldn't have been easier or smoother & all communication between us was prompt & informative. The information packet emailed to us before our stay by Colette & her husband Tim was exceptionally thorough & was several pages in length covering everything from directions to the villa, activities, & multiple restaurant recommendations.
On to the house; as most reviewers have pointed out, the photos on the website don't come close to providing an accurate impression of just how beautiful the home is or how lovely the views are from every window & balcony. Special mention goes to the view from pool gallery, which should be on the cover of a magazine & is your first impression as you walk in the entry. Personal touches such as a welcome card with our names inside the entry, a bottle of local Cruzan rum on the kitchen counter, & a box of greeting cards featuring the photography of their house manager, Bobbie, were waiting for us as we walked in. The furnishings & decoration are all lovely, well thought out, & well put together. This is a beautiful, comfortable home with a priceless view & we felt the stress start melting away immediately. We loved every minute of our time there & would go back in a heartbeat!

HEAVEN ON EARTH. A PLACE FOR HEALING!!

  • 5 of 5
Villa Paradiso deserves more than a 5 star rating. From the moment we arrived and got out of the car and saw the white caps of the waves, we knew we were about to experience something special. It never stopped delivering.

Once you walk through the beautiful arch doors your eyes go into instant extra sensory overload. You see the infinity pool meet the ocean, and the ocean meet the sky.You stop, your brain can't believe what your eyes are seeing. We felt like this is what heaven is supposed to look like, yet your still here on Earth.

You could tell in this home that not one detail was overlooked. We knew that we were getting the chance to experience something very few get to experience. It is truly a place to remember and never forget. The sliding hide away doors in the living room was a hidden gem. We left them open everyday and allowed the beautiful breezes that come across the terrace to go through the house.

Action speaks louder than words! We already booked our reservation for next year. I would not want to vacation anywhere else for fear it could never live up to Villa Paradiso.

All the conveniences and comforts needed for a great vacation are provided. From the morning coffee on the terrace until the starry night solarium effect, and then climbing into the most comfortable bed, Villa Paradiso is the only befitting name.

We enjoyed eating dinner at Duggan's. "Try the Whiskey lobster," to die for and great atmosphere. The cruise to Buck Island was a wonderful experience. Captain Carl was wonderful and made us feel like family. My wife snorkeled for the first time and had the time of her life. The island natives were so friendly and made us feel so welcomed.

Bobby our coordinator was wonderful. She was there whenever we needed her and she filled our every need.

Thank you Tim and Colettel for building such a beautiful home and then allowing others to share in your masterpiece.

Sincerely,

Steve & Angela Z

NAME SAYS IT ALL!

  • 5 of 5
True PARADISE! We have visited many Caribbean islands…it will be tough to match this stay!
Photos of the home on-line looked great ….once we arrived at the home we stood in absolute AWE!
The home was furnished perfectly….from the kitchen where every amenity is provided, (if your hobby is cooking you’ll be preparing great meals) … to the bedrooms with private balconies with endless water& hill views, to the outdoor kitchen area, to the fully equipped outdoor patio complete with an endless pool & surround sound system (great for playing steel drum music which the owners provided! ) There was not one item that was overlooked when this home was designed and furnished! Absolute 10+ !
The location was private which we loved…yet had easy access to major towns as well as local casual & fine dining restaurants. Stop at Ziggys Bar for happy hour or enjoy some fine dining at Galleon at Tamarind Reef. Having the various hiking trails just steps away from the home was one of our major focal points …along with access to Jack and Isaac Bays…great for a quick dip in the water…with or without your suit!
Buck Island Tour with Captain Heinz & Earl is a MUST! Pack a lunch, bring along a Frisbee and simply chill! They will provide full snorkel gear if you don’t have it.
Some of the beaches we would recommend…Chenay Bay…calm waters, shady areas, Shoy Beach..superb views & fine sand, Rainbow Beach (west end) stop by Rhythms and have a cold drink and lunch. Don’t forget Mt. Pellier Hut near the Rain Forest ..home of the best burger on the planet… and enjoy a beer with the Beer Drinking Pigs!
Colette and Bobbie were fabulous with providing all the information to us prior to the visit as well as while we were there….it could not have been easier! Thank you for your great hospitality and suggestions throughout the stay.
Simply stated…..the hardest part was leaving this Paradise Vacation! WE WILL BE BACK!!

A wonderful home- not a rental!!!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect, perfect, perfect!! We stayed for 2 weeks and barely left the property. It was a true home; all the conveniences so we could cook and relax in wonderful/ comfortable surroundings.

Colette was fabulous to deal with and Bobbie/Bob were so welcoming and there to help in a flash if needed.

We loved the fabulous view and privacy. We will definitely be returning next year. Thank you!!
