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.

Even Better The Second Time

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful Villa in Paradise was even more unbelievable staying their for the second time, two years in a row. Our two week vacation was truly a wonderful experience that we will never forget. The second time there we stayed in their Amber Suite. A completely different experience at the same place.

We would eagerly get up early every morning and watch the sunrise come up over the horizon of the water and watch the moonrise come up over the water at night. We also couldn't wait until 6:30 PM everyday to experience God's wonder and see what He had in store for us when we watched the sunset and the amber glow across the ocean waters while floating in their refreshing pool. There are very few places in the world where you can experience all three of these wonders at one location.

It is very hard to leave this home because of the spectacular views and amenities. Want to see a beautiful sunset over the water while eating dinner, The Waves at Cane Bay is a wonderful experience. While eating dinner, you are only 15 feet from the water waves. Love or want to experience snorkeling, Buck Island is a must.

Our hats are off to the Diegel's for building such a wonderful paradise. Colette is such a beautiful and kind person. Very responsive to your needs and takes great pride in making you feel comfortable. I am sure we will also experience Villa Paradiso for even a third time next year.

Absolutely awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed this beautiful home and how accommodating it was. The views and breezes were wonderful; gorgeous sunrises out our bedroom door. It was so truly relaxing. Over that we were on the quiet side of the island with plenty of restaurants to choose from and a wonderful market for fresh fish caught daily that was fairly close (and a wonderful wine selection as well!) to the villa. Thank you, Tim and Colette, for making your "home away from home" so comfortable and inviting.

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

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you had a wonderful vacation and appreciated our guest services. We care so much about our guests and we will be delighted to have you back at Villa Paradiso in the future. Thank you for the compliments about Captain Carl on Teroro II. Sailing both ways is so much better as you acknowledged. Magical St. Croix!

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!
