Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)


Overlooking the incredible Caribbean Sea and within a mile of Cruz Bay, St. John, Dream Sea has a secluded and unparalleled view. By day, sunset, or night the 180 degree vista of St. Thomas and the Sir Frances Drake Passage, with its rich history of pirates and treasure, is amazing, inspiring and romantic.

This breath taking view will be your focal point as you enter past the sparkling pool (19' X 10' / 3.5 - 5ft deep) and ascend to the grand veranda. The sea air will draw you across the classic Caribbean porch with comfortable swing chair, two chaise lounges and upholstered wicker furniture arranged for relaxation and dining.

For those who want to stay close to home, enjoy the entertainment center which includes a 40' Smart TV with digital cable, stereo system with CD & DVD players, IPOD connection to speakers, all complimented by a surround sound home theater. Dream Sea is beautifully appointed with comfortable wicker furniture. This two bedroom, two bath main house along with a one bedroom one bath cottage will wrap you in historic traditions of Caribbean style and luxury.

The Gourmet equipped and richly appointed kitchen will make it easy for you to have breakfast by the pool or enjoy a special dinner on your private veranda with the twinkling lights of St. Thomas in the background. Or, if you choose, you can go out for dinner. After all, you are within a mile of Cruz Bay and all of its great restaurants and shops.

The Master Suite with private balcony has a dramatic four poster king bed with matching chests in antique white wood and wicker finish. The bed is covered with a lovely quilt of Caribbean colors, prints and complimented by oversized pillows.

Adjoining is a full size bath with a wonderful garden shower with views to the sky and the garden.

The Guest Suite is quietly elegant with 2 twin bamboo beds that can be left as twins or made into a king. Two dressers, with matching end tables and a small closed are included. These pieces compliment the stately beds with arched pillow headboards.

The beds are covered in a dreamy embroidered matelesse coverlet. Custom made pillows enhance the decor. Adjoining is a full bath with shower. Just outside this bedroom is a lovely hammock perfect for reaching or daydreaming. Or step into the hot tub and relax while enjoying views of the vast Caribbean sea.

Take a three mile ride and you will find yourself on some of the greatest and most renowned beaches in the world or hiking the trails of the Virgin Islands National Park.

St. John is a special place in the world and Dream Sea will leave a guest with discerning taste memories that will last forever.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Sea Cruz is a beautiful home with a world class view of the Caribbean and St. Thomas. This trip was our second stay at Sea Cruz and we are already talking about booking our third. It’s obvious a lot of thought went into designing, decorating and landscaping Sea Cruz, it feels like home only with a view you could never tire of. My wife and I love to be on the huge porch when the sun is setting over St. Thomas. Very convenient location for the beaches, grocery store and restaurants.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to stay on the island, look no more! My husband and I wanted to stay on St. John for our honeymoon but wanted something more private than a hotel - Sea Cruz was perfect! There wasn't anything this villa lacked. We had everything we could've hoped for and more! The views are breathtaking which at times, made us never want to leave the villa. We will definitely visit again and hope it will be in the near future. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay!

We were fortunate to spend two extensive vacations at Sea Cruz. Each time, we were warmly welcomed by Kathy at the ferry and she was a great source of information during each visit. The house, which is close to shopping and town, is well maintained, clean, and beautifully furnished including a fully equipped kitchen--can't think of anything missing. in addition, beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, pool toys are there for your use. Fans throughout the house and porch kept us cool without need of air conditioning, although it was available. Grounds are lovely including the pool and an orchid that bloomed throughout our stays. But the most amazing part of Sea Cruz for us was the grand porch. It is very large and beautifully furnished with areas for both sitting and eating. If that were not enough, the porch has the most spectacular wide angle view of ocean, islands, boat traffic, as well as twinkling lights on St. Thomas at night. At times, you can even hear the sound of water splashing on rocks below. We would often come home from the beach or touring the island and say, 'why did we leave the house--it is so glorious here'. We would definitely recommend Sea Cruz to a friend

Sea Cruz

  • 4 of 5

We really liked "Sea Cruz." It has a great view. The sunsets are amazing!!!! You can sit on the porch in the mornings and have your breakfast and watch the sunsets in the afternoon. The pool rocks!!! We used it every morning and every afternoon. The inside of "Sea Cruz" is awesome. The decor is so pretty. The owners took great care in decorating it and the art is amazing. I felt right at home. The kitchen is fully stocked and we wanted for nothing. We cooked two nights and it was prefect. My only complaint is that the AC was on a timer. Many people may not need the AC at all, but I do. I get very hot, so having them on a timer was not good for me. If I booked here again, I would ask if they could be taken off the timer. I would go back here. It is pefrect for a couple, two couples or a family of 4.

Sea Cruz review

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great and as advertised, with the possible exception of the roaming neighborhood rooster(s) crowing in the morning. Could be an issue depending upon how light and how late a sleeper you are!

A Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

My wife Sue and I spent two glorious weeks at Sea Cruz from Feb. 20th, '10 to March 7th, '10. The decor and ammenities in this home were well beyond our expectations (we've been renting homes on STJ for many years). The home is cozy and secure. The location is convenient to town. This is a great home for one or two couples. Privacy, great pool, and beautiful views to STT. A perfect vacation home!
