My husband renovated Southern Cross & made it an airy and gorgeous villa. We had actually rented it before we purchased it. We lived in it for a year.. it was a year of cool ocean breezes, morning coffee on the deck watching the activity in the bay and falling asleep to the Caribbean Sea crashing on the rocks below...... We pride ourselves in sharing with our guests these experiences in a comfortable and beautiful villa!.

What makes this villa unique

We have lived on St. John for 33 years, and never take the beauty and lifestyle for granted. We love when people come to St. John and are totally blown away by the natural beauty and enjoy the island we have come to be so proud to be a part of.

Perfect villa for our party of 5 adults and 3 kids

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, home and view. We miss it already! The villa has everything you need for an exjoyable stay including a leave behind closet with beer and liquor (check this before buying your provisions, we left some nice stuff!), snorkel equipment, and sand toys. Eight beach chairs were provided as well as beach towels and bath towels. We had 3 small children with us (ages 5. 6, and 9) and the set up of this house allowed us to have everyone sleep in their bedroom without worrying because 2 bedrooms were under the main roof. We could lock the sliders in the bedrooms up high so the kids could only exit through the living room instead of walking downstairs near the pool. The island was wonderful. Every beach and hike had something different and special. Crandall on St. John did a great job getting our rental cars and groceries. Would recommend without hesitation! Enjoyed the free drink coupons as well :-)

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Southern Cross is all you could hope for in a vacation villa, it is close to shops, dining, has incredible views and is well stocked. We were a group of 7 adults, never did we feel crowded or cramped.

Crandall Management was helpful with questions or any needs. We rented two vehicles and had plenty of room for parking. This was our 3rd year in beautiful St John and we all agree that it was our best time yet!

I saved the best for last, upon our arrival an envelope was on the counter greeting us along with coupons for free drinks of choice at The Lime Inn, we enjoyed a delicious lunch along with our free cocktails.

We feel in love with Southern Cross I know future guest will too. 😎

Amazing in all ways!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we started looking into staying at this villa to our checkout yesterday- Southern Cross was perfect. I have used VRBO all over the world but this was the best equipped house I have ever stayed. From the "leave behind" closet which is ingenious (why not leave that salt or rum you bought?) to the beach chairs, rafts and coolers we had everything we needed and more. The views are breathtaking and the location is ideal. We were 2 families so the parents stayed in the upper 2 masters while the "20 something" girls had the 2 huge bedrooms below. Everyone had their own bathroom as well as spot in the great room overlooking the water. We had a gorgeous breeze (trade winds) so we never had to turn on the air conditioning. The design and the layout of house, ample decks and outdoor seating let us know it was built with love.

Crandall maagment compamy were top notch and answered all of my pre-arival questions imediatley as well as helped us secure 2 vehicles. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and we go to meet their daughter at their family run restaurant "The Lime Inn".

Great house, excellent location and view I am still dreaming about.

Thhank you for sharing Southern Cross with us.

Gorgeous views!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for our wedding with our wedding party and we had such an excellent time! The house was beautiful, well kept with unique and island themed decor. The views were spectacular to wake up to in the morning and grill out for dinner. Highly recommend Southern Cross for your trip to my favorite place on earth! :)

An excellent villa for family, friends and a quiet relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have spent multiple vacations on St John and usually stay at a resort. With the recent addition of a baby to our family we asked our parents to join us for an extra set of hands (and to enjoy St John). Given the additional people, we searched for a villa that could provide us privacy, great views, plenty of space, on site pool, and be appropriate for a 7 month old baby. We reviewed many properties and decided that Southern Cross seemed to be a good fit. However, we were concerned about a property just below Southern Cross that was being renovated.

Well...Southern Cross was indeed a great property and made for an excellent vacation. The owners were very response to our initial inquiries regarding the property including keeping us informed about the lower property renovation progress. In the end, while construction was taking place during our stay, it was only during the morning and early afternoon and not particularly noisy.

The villa itself is situated along a largely private drive resulting in privacy. It was spacious, quiet, with a clean pool, nicely furnished, plenty of toiletries, stocked pantry, and clean. The views were spectacular and the breezes were fantastic meaning most of the day we had the doors open to take in the trade winds. At night we used the air conditioning in the bedrooms.

Finally, and not to be overlooked, is the service you receive while on site. Laurie and Craig of Crandall on St John Property Management were phenomenal. From the time we booked the reservation, Laurie and Craig were pleasant and responsive. They arranged our Jeep rental and offered a provisioning service. Upon our arrival, they met us at the ferry and transported us to the Villa where our Jeep awaited. Additionally, they transported us back to the ferry at the end of our trip.

Would happily stay again and recommend others do so as well, just don't take the week we want to come back!
