A piece of heaven in the Caribbean

  • 5 of 5

This place was beautiful. The house was well taken care of except the cable which was out for the first three or four days because the wiring outside the home wasn't properly encased so it had rotted through thank goodness for the young man who replaced thirty feet of cable so we had tv to watch at night. Situated on the east end of the island there was plenty of activities to do. St croix is a beautiful island and we drove all over finding plenty to do to keep us busy. The views from the home were beyond words. The outdoors space all over the property had breathtaking views. The nights outside were glorious with the breeze off the water. The waves crashing along the the rocks on the beach is a sound I could fall asleep to every night. Thank you for sharing your home. We will definitely rent this beautiful private home again

Amazing home and view

  • 5 of 5

The home and view are just as they look I the photos, beautiful! Very secluded. We only saw wildlife, no humans. Enjoyed watching the sea turtles, pelicans and iguanas from the deck.

Wonderful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We were in search of a relaxing, stress-free vacation and we found just that! The villa was clean and fully equipped and the views were just amazing. We loved the privacy as well. A day trip to Buck island was the highlight of our trip, but a close second was just hanging out by the pool with our morning coffee watching the turtles and floating in the pool in the afternoon listening to the crashing waves. It was also very nice to have Cole meet us at the airport and show us around the property.

There are only two things I wish were a bit more clear when we rented. One, the stairs to the loft bedroom in the guest house were a bit steep for my mid-60's parents and they had to be extra careful. Two, we didn't feel comfortable swimming from the beach in front of the house, but there are so many beaches nearby that it didn't change our enjoyment of the villa. Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful place!

Overall, our stay at this villa and in St. Croix was all we could hope for in a relaxing vacation!

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three had a wonderfull stay at this "mini resort. "The pictures do not do this place justice. Everyday we were greeted by the iguanas and sea turtles. We watched a thunder and lightening storm over the ocean which was amazing. The power never went out, although we thought it was going to at any moment. We were lulled to sleep by the waves every night. I definitely recommend having Deanne put some groceries on the kitchen before your arrival. Her and Stephen were a wealth of information. We can't wait to go back!

Vacation Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Rainbow Cove and found the house, views, and all amenties as described. It is truly was a 5 Star experience and by far the best house we have rented on VBRO. We really enjoyed sitting outside and watching the turtles go by. The group was three couples and it was set up well for privacy. Lots of dining choices nearby or eat at home you can't go wrong. We loved St Croix and can't wait to come back and rent the house again.

What a gorgeous villa right on the water - nothing lacking in this rental.

  • 5 of 5

Very private and quiet. The kitchen was high end with great appliances, counters and stone work.

The master bed and ensuite bath was excellent. Two adjoining showers with direct access to the pool. Above average soaps and shampoo and spa like bath towels.

The exterior gardens were beautiful and the sound of the waves semi-crashing on the shore was relaxing and not too loud.

The dip pool was very refreshing and the chairs were very comfortable.

We used the outdoor gas grill to make some great steaks, burgers and pork chops.

Wi-Fi was very good. The power went out one night while we were sleeping, but the generator kicked on right away.

My only slight concern about the rental was during the rental and communication process leading up to our stay - At times, replies to email was slower than expected. If you experience that, just give the owner a call instead.
