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!.

CHRISTINE MEYER purchased this villa in 2001

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.

Great views and breeze with great outdoor spaces to eat outside and enjoy morning coffee.

  • 5 of 5

This property has two bedrooms upstairs with a shared living room and kitchen. Downstairs has two additional bedrooms and a laundry room. The bedrooms downstairs are accessible by stairs outside which may be difficult if young children but ideal for older children or groups. This is a great place to stay. The views are fantastic and it is very private and quiet. Many of the rental properties will show you views of the ocean but won’t mention there is a busy road below or beside the property. This is so peaceful. No busy roads or neighborhoods on top of you. Just nature, sun and breeze. Let’s not forget about the star gazing! The outdoor deck has a grill and a table for eight but ten could easily fit. It is a great place for morning coffee or dinner outside. Don’t pass up an opportunity to stay at this property. Some people are worried that St. John isn’t back and running after the hurricane. It’s running! We’ve been coming for years. And yes, there is hurricane damage. There are homes being rebuilt or repaired and foliage destroyed. The beaches are still more beautiful than anywhere else I’ve travelled. And I’ve travelled... The people are friendlier, the food is great, and I am already planning my next trip. 😎?

Beautiful villa in a private, peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay at Southern Cross villa. From check-in to check-out everything went perfectly. The screened great room doors let the ocean breezes cool the villa while listening to the waves crashing below. Large bedrooms are beautifully furnished. The pool was refreshing and spotless and the open-concept kitchen bright and well stocked.

We’re looking forward to returning to Southern Cross villa soon!

Souther Cross exceeded our expectations! We loved the house, the rooms, the view, all of it! The house was perfect for the 4 of us even though it sleeps many more. The sound of the ocean was a delight. The owner of the house was a joy to work with. And we loved dining at the Lime Inn which we went to two nights in a row! We cannot wait to return to St. John next year and we hope to stay at Southern Cross again!

Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is spacious and great for relaxing with a large group. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery while being shaded on the patio. The views from the home are terrific: blue water, crashing waves on rocks nearby, St. Croix in the distance.

The road is eroded and rough near the home. Most rental vehicles on St. John are Jeeps, so that shouldn't be a problem. I suspect the road will be improved as the island recovers from the recent storms.

Southern Cross - a beautiful home with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Southern Cross was perfect for our family of 6 during the holidays. The view from the patio was incredible and we loved eating our breakfast outside daily. It looked like the home sustained very little damage from the hurricane and we felt very comfortable there. Christine was an excellent host and we enjoyed dining at the Lime Inn while we were on the island. We would be happy to stay at Southern Cross again!
