Overview

Skytop Villa Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Fish Bay, Great Rates (Sleeps 2-8)

Croix Vista is a spacious (5100+ sq. ft.), especially well furnished and very comfortable two-level villa. You park on the upper level and enter into the upper great room which contains a granite and mahogany kitchen, dining area with a table for eight, a half bath and a small seating area. Oversized and screened, arched, mahogany doors open to the fantastic views and an 800 sq. ft coral stone (non skid), partially covered deck with cushioned furniture. Located on either side of the upper great room are large bedroom suites that open to the deck. Exterior coral stone (non skid) stairs lead down to the lower level where the floor plan is similar to the upper level with a kitchen and dining area, plus a larger living area with a wet bar and home theater system. Like the upper level, two large bedrooms/baths are located on either side of the lower great room. The 16’ x 8’ pool is on the lower level and is surrounded by a 70’ x 20’ sq. ft. coral stone (non skid), partially covered deck with cushioned recliners and other deck furniture.

Living/Dining areas: The 600 sq. ft. lower level great room is the audio-visual and entertainment heart of this villa with a 50' plasma satellite HD-TV, a surround sound system, a wet bar and comfy, cushioned, rattan furniture. There is also a 500 sq. ft. great room on the upper level but most of this area is devoted to the kitchen and dining areas. A stereo/CD plays through 10 speakers in the great rooms and on the decks of both levels.

The primary dining area has a mahogany table and chair set that seats eight on the upper level. There is also a dining table for six-eight on the lower level and also casual dining at smaller tables on both decks.

Kitchens: Both kitchens (there are two) are defined by stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and custom mahogany cabinets. The lower level kitchen has a four-burner gas stove and oven, a full size side-by-side refrigerator and a sink, while the larger upper level kitchen (the primary kitchen) has a 4-burner electric stove and oven, s/s refrigerator, dishwasher, sink and a bar/counter with bar chairs. Both kitchens are well equipped with microwave ovens, coffeemakers, blenders and cookware and kitchenware. Each level also has a gas barbeque grill on the deck and there is a washer/dryer on the lower level.

Bedrooms: The four large king-size, air conditioned bedrooms are models of tasteful bedroom décor. The 550 sq. ft. upper east (left) master bedroom includes a king-sized, four-posted mahogany bed plus a pull out twin sofa bed, an antique chest of drawers and desk, antique armoire, 32” satellite HD-TV, lounge chairs, floor lamps for reading, a walk in closet, a cathedral ceiling, a mahogany and granite bathroom and lovely views from everywhere in the bedroom. The upper level west (right) bedroom (300 sq. ft), and the lower level right bedroom (400 sq. ft.), are similar in comfort and fine décor. The lower left bedroom (250 sq. ft.) is smaller but also tastefully decorated. All the bedrooms are air conditioned with very quiet and effective high wall split units and 32' satellite TV's

All bedrooms provide privacy and three have walk in closets, arched, screened mahogany doors that open to a deck and splendid views. All the bedrooms also have tiled baths and showers with mahogany and granite vanities.

FANTASTIC LOCATION, FANTASTIC HOUSE!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this house the last week of June. The weather was perfect! The house afforded privacy for the family and was a great place for entertaining. We spent a lot of time on the decks. The kids (and adults) really enjoyed the pool on the lower deck. The management team in charge of the property could not have been more helpful to us. They made sure we had what we needed and gave us helpful hints on how to navigate throughout the island. It was, by far, the best vacation my family and I have ever had. Thanks to the owners and Henry and Larissa who made our stay relaxing and fun!!!

Awesome house, awesome view, awesome time!!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my three adult children to St Johns for their first trip to an island. What an awesome time we had. The house was great because each one of us had our own spectacular bedroom, and the kids loved that, because they always had to room with each other whenever we went on vacation. This time they got to live like kings. :) I wanted to rent a place that would blow them away, and Croix Vista definitely did that. :)

Thank you to everyone at Sol Villas for all their help in making this trip a reality, and helping me through the process, as this was my first venture using VRBO.

Perfect House and a Perfect Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 8 people stay in Croix Vista with 2 teenagers, 2 parents, and 4 grandparents. The set up of the house if perfect for multiple families. The house has everything you could think of that you would need and the view is beautiful. The drive up to the house is a little scary the first time, but once you drive it a couple of times it is not a big deal. We even felt comfortable driving at night by the last 3 days of our stay. Would definitely come back and stay at Croix Vista!! Everyone loved this house.

HEAVEN ON EARTH, AND THOSE VIEWS! (The best place you can stay on the island. HANDS DOWN!)

  • 5 of 5

Where can I start? Let me think of all the adjectives I can use to describe this villa; Beautiful, peaceful, private, serene, breath of fresh air, heaven on earth, fantastic, breezy, charming, sunny extravagant, complete, amazing, awesome, and just PERFECT! We have come been on the island 4 times now and stayed here the last two trips and just love everything about St John and this house feels like our home away from home (even though my home is nowhere near this amazing).

This property has everything you could ever need and SO MUCH MORE. I would have to say my favorite thing about the entire house, if i had to actually pick one favorite thing, is the VIEW. The view of fish bay from the pool is one that cannot be matched, unless you walk up the stairs and catch the view from the top deck of the home. Three out of the four spacious and beautifully decorated bedrooms have this amazing view as well. Two kitchens are stocked with any cooking utensil, pot or pan that you could need including two grills and two blenders (that make the perfect bushwacker, a island must try). It boasts two large entertaining areas, including a sound system that plays inside and outside and throughout the entire house and even at the pool. A huge TV, which we didn't use once because seriously, those views! There are four private air conditioned bedrooms with wonderful spacious bathrooms which allows a perfect setting for separate families or couples. The pool and the lower deck was definitely the centerpiece. The deck area (on both levels) are perfect for eating meals (eating breakfast and having coffee with the views was our favorite) laying on the pool floats, swimming, drinking, dancing, reading, writing or just soaking in the beautiful St. John rays. The house is furnished extremely tastefully and the actual structure and all the finishing were just as tasteful. You can really tell the owners put a lot of love and thought into this home while building it and it is an absolute pleasure staying in it.

This house has everything you could ever want. We have stayed elsewhere and no where else compares. Sol Villas did a wonderful job guiding us up to the villa and giving us any recommendations we needed. We appreciate this property and the priceless memories made here. We plan on trying to come back every year. You will not be disappointed! Be prepared to leave a little piece of your heart here and on this island, it has a large piece of mine!
