Situated at the edge of the Caribbean, Sea View Play was built in the year 2000 as a private tropical retreat by the owners of a famed Resort and Spa. Sea View Play is a magnificent villa directly on the Caribbean Sea. In fact every room in this 5,000 square foot house faces the Ocean. Since the house faces North and has 180 degree views, you can see both Sunrises and Sunsets. We are on the 'rainbow coast' and the rainbows are fantastic. Whether your party is 2 or 12, you will all have the space you need for both intimacy and privacy. While many vacation properties accommodate large groups, they do not have the breathing space that Sea View Play affords each guest. Sea View Play is designed differently from most other houses. Being one of the larger houses on St. Croix, Sea View Play is configured into an East and West Wing (each with separate kitchen facilities and living areas).
If this isn't Heaven, what is?: Enter the Villa through the double Mahogany doors to the Atrium filled with beautiful plantings and look through the Great Room to sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea. The Great Room is the pride of the house with high vaulted ceilings in the old plantation tradition covers the huge common space. As you gaze out of every window and door, the stunning views and close proximity of the magnificent Caribbean Sea will memorize you.
We are very excited about our exquisite new fresh water pool and large deck off the Great Room. The oceanfront deck has a pergola to protect you from the sun, a bar for you to relax, and an outdoor kitchen to make wonderful. breakfasts, lunches, and romantic dinners under the stars. For those who enjoy cooking, the outdoor kitchen is complete with plenty of counter space, an outdoor drop-in barbecue, sink, and refrigerator. The Deck is the perfect venue for outdoor dining or simply a place to gather at dusk to watch the sun sink spectacularly into the sea. The deck and pool are just the perfect spot for ‘limein’, the Crucian word for “not doing much of anything at all”.
At either end of the main house is a Master Bedroom Suite, each with its own private bath. Two additional large bedrooms and bathrooms, both with ocean views, are situated mid house. The separate and private cottage has a master bedroom, living room, bath, washer & dryer, and full kitchen. The two full kitchens and two washer/dryers in the main house offer flexibility not normally encountered in a vacation rental. The oceanfront deck and balcony that wraps around the seaside of the house is accessible from every room.
The spacious Great Room has vaulted ceilings, an indoor atrium, and Lanai folding doors that open the Great Room to the deck and new pool.
A rare feature of this spectacular property is its natural tidal swimming pool. Constantly replenished by the waves breaking just outside the pool, relaxing or taking a moonlight swim is an experience like no other. The small tropical fish enjoying the pool with you only make the experience even more special. Children especially like to swim and snorkel in the safety of the pool.
Sea View Play also enjoys a panoramic view of St. Thomas, St. John, and the British Virgin Islands. Just minutes away is Cane Bay, with its palm lined beach, world class diving at the Wall, and wonderful casual beachside restaurants.
If you play golf, we have an exclusive arrangement with the Carambola Golf Club for all of our guests to play golf for free during their stay. There are no greens fees. The Carambola Golf Club also has tennis courts, swimming pools, and a restaurant that are open to all our guests.
If you dive, we can arrange a discount package for diving for your group. The Wall at Cane Bay is one of the best diving sites in the world. Just let us know.
Our Villa Manager, Phillip, will greet you at the airport, escort you to the villa, assist you with your groceries and act as your personal concierge & property manager during your stay.
A Special Place for Special Events: Sea View Play, situated on 1.3 acres of beautiful grounds covered with Pink and Red Bougainvillea, Palm Trees and numerous tropical plants throughout the grounds is the perfect place for to stroll, gather for a special celebration, or have a beautiful wedding.
No matter why you come, your time at Sea View Play is spent taking a break from the rest of the world. Your life the way it should be.
We always dreamed about being in the Virgin Islands. We love St. Croix because it is undiscovered and looks like many different places: Hawaii, Northern California and of course, the colorful Caribbean paradise which it is. Contact us and we will be happy to tell you about all of the wonderful things we have discovered on this island that will make your vacation, or your special event, a memorable experience.
We couldn't believe that this magnificent villa located at the edge of the Caribbean was in our budget. We wanted a place that we could use and enjoy and some day retire to.
