Best trip of my life at this luxurious villa

  • 5 of 5

A group of four of us went down to St. Croix and stayed at the Estate Buena Vista villa. We got in late at night so we we're blind to the country side view around us. When we walked into the house we were all speechless to how beautiful and well maintained it was. The following morning we woke up and were in amazement again as we could finally see the beautiful view of the beach from the balcony, it was the perfect place to sit and enjoy your morning coffee everyday. From there heading into town is just a quick 15min drive and you can enjoy every restaurant and tavern Christiansted has to offer, I would highly recommend the Voodoo Shrimp at 40 Strand Eatery. If you're looking to spend the day at a calm beautiful beach Cramer park is just a 10 min drive from the property. The next time I find myself in St. Croix I will be looking to book my stay at this villa again and would encourage my friends and family to do the same.

A week of Island Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

With 2 families of 4, the Buena Vista house had room to spare. A gorgeous view out virtually every window, of one of the prettiest bays I have ever seen. Out on the East End of St. Croix, this house was totally kitted out for families, with movies, games, pool toys and yes-unfortunately, great Wifi (kids on tablets during vacation). The bedrooms were all comfortable and the great room was heaven. What an amazing Easter Vacation-we even had a visit from the Easter Mongoose (in place of the Easter Bunny).

Best Villa Rental By Far!

  • 5 of 5

We have done quite a few Villa rentals over the years being a family of 5 and all of us agree that this Villa Rental has been the best by far! The house was more than we expected. Eastern end of this beautiful island, peaceful and tranquil yet conveniently located close to beautiful beaches and restaurants. Kitchen, bathrooms and laundry rooms had everything you could think of that you would actually have or want in your own home ( even the local rum with mixers ). Our 3 weeks spent there were the best ever. We were able to not only enjoy the island but also enjoy the comfort and amenities of the villa as well. I would like to thank Serenity Villa Management for being available by phone call or text to assist us with anything we needed from simple suggestions to wanting and delivering local mangoes. I would definitely recommend this rental company to everyone. We are looking forward to visiting again soon.

AMAZING property!

  • 5 of 5

Ten adults (five couples) spent nine days at Estate Buena Vista in May. We had a FANTASTIC time. The house is beautiful, well-equipped, and cozy. The concierge met us at the airport and escorted us to the property, and was very responsive to questions we had during our stay. Being on the East End, Estate Buena Vista is in a quiet area. Christiansted is a short 15 minute drive, and we had easy access to grocery stores and other amenities. We will definitely return to Estate Buena Vista. Thanks for a fantastic time!
