About the property

4 Bedrooms plus cottage bedroom with 5 1/2 private full bathrooms, sleeps 12

We have 4 bedrooms plus another bedroom in the cottage that has a King bedroom and a queen sofa bed. So if you need, we have 5 bedrooms and can sleep up to 12 guests.

Situated at the edge of the Caribbean ocean, SeaViewPlay 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 SeaViewPlay. Every room in this over 6,000 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. SeaViewPlay is designed differently from most other houses. Being one of the larger houses on St. Croix, SeaViewPlay 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 SeaViewPlay.

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, all 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.

SeaViewPlay 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.fow

A Special Place for Special Events: SeaViewPlay, 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 SeaViewPlay is spent taking a break from the rest of the world. Your life the way it should be. M

About Joel Linchitz & Lucy Lasky

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 love to share all the wonderful things we have done on St. Croix

Joel Linchitz & Lucy Lasky purchased this villa in 2009

Why Joel Linchitz & Lucy Lasky chose St. Croix

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.

Four Couples Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Four couples rented Sea View Play for a week. What a blast!! This place is in the perfect location. Right on the water and within a two mile radius, there are 6 excellent local restaurants for drinks, dinner, and dancing. Scuba, snorkeling and swimming are within a mile and located right along side a very cool beach bar.....try Calvin's Mama Juana drink!!

The house is very comfortable and nicely decorated with a stocked kitchen. The pool is a lifesaver and just the right size to cool off. My favorite thing was to just sit on the deck with a coffee or in the pool with a cocktail a look out over the ocean. The special location of this house allows you to see the sunrise in the morning and the sunset in the evening.

Lucy and Joel make it very easy to rent this fabulous place. We rented the house two years ago and couldn't wait to return. Trust me, we will be back!!

Spacious, great layout for privacy. Out of this world views from every room.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our trip to St. Croix. Fantastic snorkeling at different beaches around the island and Buck Island was definitely worth doing. We tried several of the restaurants that were recommended and they did not disappoint. I wish we could have stayed longer than a week, but I guess we will just have to go back:). Thanks to Lucy and Joe for sharing their fabulous vacation rental!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay at SeaViewPlay was outstanding from the time the reservation was made, discussing activities with Lucy and Joel to actually landing and experienceing first hand what it's like to be in an oceanfront property! The house was spacious and had everything including golf clubs to snorkel gear available for our enjoyment. Each room was uniquely decorated and consistent with the nature of the island and surroundings. I only wish we could have brought a couple of the enormous sea shells we found during one of our many snorkel trips we took. The kids went scuba diving nearby and actually came across two whales enjoying the morning! We were totally pleased and can't think of a thing to change.

Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sea View Play for a week with some family members. The stay was very enjoyable. The caretaker met us and showed us around and was very gracious. The home is well stocked, and the setting is breathtaking. WE spent our morning on the deck watching the waves and were lulled to sleep by the waves. I would highly recommend this home.

Beautiful villa with incredible ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

Seaviewplay is a true gem and everything you would expect from the pictures and description. Our group of 5 just returned from a fantastic week of diving and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The villa is very spacious, well designed, and has all the comforts you would ever need. Ocean front patio was a favorite for morning coffee & cocktails and dinner in the evening. Lots of room to spread out, everyone had their own bedrooms and bathrooms. Lucy, Joel, & Phillip were all awesome to work with.

Dive shop, shore diving, and several great beach bars & restaurants at Cane Bay 5 minutes away.  Also visited nearby Carambola resort as guests of Seaviewplay. This is a fantastic resort right on the beach with every amenity you can imagine, including a dive shop at beach level.

Highly recommend Seaviewplay and hope to return someday. Maybe next time we'll even bring our wives!

breath taking, spacious home with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Seaview Play was wonderful! We had ten adults and had more than enough space for everyone. The views and the tide pool were amazing. Lucy and Joel were great to work with and made everything easy. I would recommend this house. Lots of great adventures await in St Croix.

An Amazing Perk For Those Guests Who like to Play Golf: Less than 8 minutes from the Villa is the beautiful Carambola Golf Club, the par-72 Carambola Golf Course that was built by Laurence Rockefeller as the centerpiece of a luxury Caribbean resort complex. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., one of the most highly respected designers of the 20th century, Carambola opened in 1966 to rave reviews and was considered by the master designer himself to be one of his finest courses.

. All Guests of Sea View Play can play golf for free as often as they like.

For those who do play Golf, this can result in savings of hundreds if not thousands of dollars. The free amenities extend to tennis, swimming pools and Club House Restaurant. Our Villa is the only one on St Croix that can boast these amenities.

For Those Who Love to Scuba Dive and Snorkel: Not five hundred feet from the balcony lies one of the Caribbean’s unique wonders, the Cane Bay Wall. The Wall is the famed destination of divers from all over the world. Less than a quarter of a mile from shore, the sea plunges to a depth of a thousand feet or more. The Wall offers novice and professional scuba divers and snorkelers one of the world’s most thrilling experiences. Scuba diving is extremely easy from our Villa.

This challenging, spectacular Trent Jones signature course is a Caribbean gem and a 'must play' for any true lover of the game of golf. Carambola has received a four star rating from GOLF Magazine.

You will fall in love with the Carambola Golf & Country Club and with its beautiful island home. For those who do not play golf, Sea View Play guests can utilize all the other facilities including Tennis Courts, Swimming Pools and great food at the Club Restaurant.
