About Dana & Scott

Dana & Scott got the island fever in 2002, when they built their first vacation rental, Crystal Sands Villa in the Turks and Caicos Islands. They live in Providenciales now. They wanted to make sure they kept their roots in the USA, however, and St Croix is one of the most remarkable US Territories around, being one of the few islands that is completely surrounded by the Caribbean Sea!

Dana & Scott purchased this villa in 2012

Why Dana & Scott chose St. Croix

The beach at Estate Salt River is one of the most picturesque settings on earth! The unique culture of the US Virgin Islands is appealing and inviting!

What makes this villa unique

Cruzan Sands Villa is located in a beautiful National Park. Our villa is removed approximately one mile from the main roads.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our Guestbook: We had a wonderful time. Spent almost every moment in the sun and sand. Beached out and swam in the pool, too. Scarlett perfected her handstands and forward flips in the water, Gavin became a pro at swimming (with his swim vest) under the water and Cameron was our napping pro! Saw sting rays - big fish - little fish - surfers - fishermen and even a man on a horse swimming along! Beautiful house and view! We had a great family time! I think we created memories for a lifetime here. A lot of family bonding and those ocean winds seem to blow away any thoughts of home or OK routines. Happy to have spent a week at the Cruzan Sands Villa in St. Croix USVI!

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I just returned from a wonderful week at the Cruzan Sands Guest House. It is a truly amazing place right on the beach with unbelivable views. From the moment we arrived Adele was there to show us where everything was and even had a map marked with places we should visit and restaurnts to try. The villa has everything you need for a great vacation. You can snokel right off your very own beach and watch the moon rise & stars at night.

This being our first trip to St Croix, we wanted a centrally located villa, so we could experienc the whole island and that we did. From scuba diving with N2 The Blue, snorkeling all around the island whever we could find a path to beach, hiking to the lighthouse on the north end, to a bioluminescent bay tour with Virgin Kayak.

Lots of great restaurants on island and especially the blackened fish tacos at Rowdy Joe's.

We will be back and thank you Dana & Scott for sharing your perfect villa. We will be back!

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our trip to St Croix it was pure paradise. We were celebrating our anniversary and there was a banner hanging up congratulating us what a welcome. Working with Dana the owner to plan this trip was so easy, when you send her questions she gets back to you to help so quickly. The house is beautiful and so comfortable we had 6 adults and all of us loved the accommodations. Adele the care taker is a total sweetheart she gave us great suggestions for places to eat and visit. One of the true gems you can meet if you rent this property is Chef Juliana she . Prepared a feast and I do mean feast for us for our first night and we ate the food for 3 days. Not only was it huge portions but it was soooooo delicious and you couldn't work with a kinder person she and her husband Austen really helped make our trip more delightful. We are already sharing our information about Cruzan Sands with our friends and it is the only place we would stay when we return because we feel we would be disappointed with anything after this. Also if you've never been to St. Croix you are in for such a treat the people on the island are so friendly and nice you will feel so welcome! We met so many wonderful people.

The Perfect 60th Birthday Party

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week (1/17/15 to 1/24/15) at the Villa to celebrate my father's 60th birthday. We rented the Main house as well as one bedroom from the Guest House to accommodate 8 adults. The moment we walked into the Villa to meet Adele, I knew the week would be perfect. Adele was so sweet to hang a "Happy Birthday" banner across the huge glass doors. All of our guests were delighted with the small details. Adele offered several suggestions for local food, activities and sights to see. She made herself available via phone or email, which was comforting during our first stay on St. Croix.

We visited several beaches, took a full day sail/snorkel with Big Beards in Christensted, visited Cruzan Rum Distillery, Jeep tours, and multiple visits to Christensted and Fredreksted for shopping. I would definitely recommend the Chicken Shack. Cold drinks, delicious food, great patrons and friendly staff. It was on the way in and out, so convenient for lunch and dinner. We also dined a couple of times at The Mermaid at the Buccaneer. Pretty setting on a covered patio overlooking the beach. One regret: not having Julianna come to the Villa to cook up one of her famous meals. I heard from several folks that her meals are unforgettable.

The Villa itself is in a perfect location. It was easy driving around any point of the island (everything within 25 minutes or so). We ended up spending more time at the Villa during late afternoon/evening than originally thought because of the amazing pool, outdoor dining area, and proximity to the beach.

The beach was within steps from the main house. There was a lot of seaweed washed ashore, which I know is unusual for the area (but we are on the shore of the open sea, it will happen!). The grounds keeper, Austin, was more than helpful clearing out the area to make sure we had a comfortable spot to park our beach chairs.

Overall, the house was clean, modern, comfortable, safe, and spacious. There was ample room for 8 adults to cook and eat, as well as relax, or enjoy alone time. The beach was great for snorkeling or just lounging. We did spend most of our time outside next to the pool. We played cards, gazed at the stars, and took late-night swims.

This was the perfect getaway to celebrate my father's birthday. The memories will be cherished as we pass on our experiences. I plan to visit in the future with my three children and in-laws. I want to share this treasure we found on St. Croix!

A Great Week at Cruzan Sands - Happy New Year!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last week of December at Cruzan Sands with our family (family of 5, with adult children). We really enjoyed the property -- super nice / clean house. Great water views from outside the house. When in the house, we spent most of our time between the kitchen and the spacious family room (all open / connected). We found the house to be situated perfectly on St Croix. We took three trips to Sandy Point beach; this beach is amazing - not crowded and the water is clear blue (one of the best beaches we've ever been on). The house was also perfect getting to daily activities, the grocery store, and dinners in Christiansted. One night, we did have Chef Julianna prepare a meal (it was a feast and the price reasonable). We also really enjoyed dinner at Rowdy Joe's - right down the street (best fish taco's I ever had!). It was our first trip to St Croix and we found the Island to be very enjoyable / people friendly / varied activities / easy to get around via car. The Cruzan Sands property was terrific (and safe and secure, when we were out during the day). Only negative, we couldn't use the beach (on the property) because of the quantity of seaweed that washed up. Not a big deal, since we found a large / beautiful beach 15 minutes away. One last thing -- make sure you stop at the Chicken Shack (a local food treasure).

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous Christmas vacation at Cruzan Sands and could not have asked for a better situation. We had six adults, a two-year-old, and a one-year-old and had more than enough room for everyone. The villa is so spotlessly clean and well maintained that it feels brand new, as if no one has been there before. The beach is only steps away and the babies (and I!) played in the sand, while my husband and the rest of the family could snorkel within eyesight for hours. Although the beach is public, there was virtually no one else there the entire week. The pool and lounging area were a great alternative, when we just wanted to sit around without sand.

Everything on the island is so close that you can be anywhere you want with minimal driving. We ate at restaurants and visited the sights (from the Cruzan Rum Factory, to the eastern-most point of the US, to the place where Christopher Columbus landed, etc. etc.) from one end to the other without any issues. Folks are friendly and helpful - especially Adele, the property manager, and Chef Juliana, who cooked two enormous gourmet meals that we feasted on for days.

Obviously, I can go on and on, but you will not find a better place to stay, and certainly not a better value. Thank you for a memorable Christmas!!

One of the best vacations my family has had!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both of the homes next door to each other (Homeaway listing 3847936, too). We had the best time! Our family enjoyed the beach, the island, the food, the historic sites, the boating.....everything! We did not realize how much St. Croix had to offer. The people are friendly all over! We hiked and went kayaking. We shopped. We explored. We won't be able to duplicate the fun. It was so great to have our family together!
