About CHRISTINE MEYER

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.

property was well maintained, beautiful views, enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in St. John staying at Southern Cross. Property was well maintained and Craig Crandall was always available to assist us with questions/concerns. Washing machine was broken during our stay but Craig saved the day and then some! He took our laundry in the morning and had it back within 5 hours all cleaned and folded. New beach towels were also provided. In addition, we were given a gift certificate to Lime Inn for the inconvenience. Great service! Would consider staying at Southern Cross again. Thank you!

Lovely spot and home

  • 5 of 5

We felt right at home at Southern Cross - home in Paradise! We spent the first week with friends who had children - ages 8 and 10 - and the second week was all adults. The property was perfect for everyone. Comfortable, every accommodation we wanted, and beautiful. And, you can't beat the location - we love Chocolate Hole! This was our first year at Southern Cross and we hope to return next year.

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.
