About Jackie Bunn

Jackie is the lucky owner of Bella Villa which she acquired after selling her previous popular St Croix vacation rental, Sugar Bay House owned since 1987. Jackie's primary goal is to insure that her guests have a wonderful vacation, in traditional West Indian comfort, on the island she loves so much. She aspires to offer the amenities and comfort that she herself would expect and wants her guests to return year after year!

Jackie Bunn purchased this villa in 2017

Why Jackie Bunn chose Christiansted

This wonderful villa in the secure gated community of Villa Madeleine located on the popular East End of St Croix is a magical place to get away from it all and relax. The view and refreshing tropical breeze from your private pool and courtyard make for a relaxing vacation. All of the island's activities are very close. You are minutes away from many of the island's best beaches for snorkeling, sunbathing, kayaking and sailing to name a few. The historic town of Christiansted is a short drive for some of the islands best shopping and restaurants.

What makes this villa unique

This particular Villa Madeleine villa has perhaps one of the best views within the community. The villa has a beautiful direct view of the ocean beyond the private pool from each room as well as the courtyard. Also given the location within the community (on the upper rows) your privacy on the courtyard is assured. We have also recently installed a cell signal booster insuring "4 bar" cell availability both in the villa as well as poolside. Each room is air conditioned.

Five star luxury with a million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

Villa Bella is by far one of the nicest places we have ever stayed anywhere! The condo is tucked away in the east end and very easy to get to with ample parking right outside the unit. Only 15 minutes from downtown Christiansted and just minutes from Point Udall , Cramer Beach park and several other beaches, bars and restaurants. Feel like golfing, tennis or snorkeling? Just look in the closet and everything you need is right there. Grill out by the lovely pool while enjoying delicious Cruzan rum (Jackie doesn't just provide the rum, she gifts you with souvenir glasses to take home!). Headed to the beach? The condo is packed with towels, sand chairs, ice chest...even sunscreen is provided. I can't think of one single thing that we looked for in the condo and didn't find, Jackie has provided for every need.

I can't forget to mention the wonderful folks who met us at the airport, Luke & Danielle. We arrived at 9:30 pm so they brought pizzas for us! PIZZAS! They showed us around the condo, explained everything, and when we had a plumbing glitch Luke came right back the next day and fixed it.

Amazing customer service, a beautiful condo with a breathtaking view, rum and pizza! WOW! We visit St Croix several times a year and our stay at Bella Villa was by far our best stay yet! It was the first visit for Roger's teenagers and they were completely blown away! We will definitely stay here again!

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home and I highly recommend it... Such great hospitality from the owners and I really appreciated the owners' attention to detail for my stay. Everything about the villa was comforting and relaxing from the water views to the trade/cross winds. I really did not even need to turn on the AC. Having the pool was a very cool bonus. There was lots of privacy from the neighbors, a bbq grill, and internet/extra cell phone boost. Since I was there for work, having the internet and cell coverage was extremely helpful.

Perfect spot for rest and relaxation!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful two-week stay at this unit in Villa Madeleine. By the time we left, it felt like home. The owners had recently installed new A/C units, although we only really needed the bedroom unit for sleeping.

The weather was a bit windy (but beautiful), so we didn't make much use of the pool itself. However, we spent many hours lying on the comfortable chaises under the awning next to the pool...reading, napping and drinking island cocktails! The unit was equipped with just about everything we needed, but a safe would have been a nice addition.

We would return again!

Beautiful and private villa

  • 5 of 5

It's great that someone meets you at the airport, makes for an easy transition to island life and driving on the left. Everything was great and the owner or his manager on island were very responsive to any questions. Villa was very clean compared to most places we have stayed.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our vacation at this beautiful villa! Owner emailed restaurant reviews and places to visit before we arrived, which was great!

The beds in both bedrooms were very comfortable and all four of us slept well.

The view from the pool area is amazing and the sounds of nature and ocean were lovely.

The owner was very responsive to an issue in the villa and repaired it immediately. We definitely recommend this villa.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the villa. Sorry the oven decided to die on your first day at the villa. I hope the new stove was much better. Please keep us in mind for your next visit. Thanks, Richard and Marie

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Being our first visit to St. Croix we were somewhat anxious. The choice of where we stay played a major role in how our overall vacation was going to be.

We made a great choice with this home! We continue to talk as much about the home as we do the island.

First of all, the owners know the information you need and what you may ask. They will send you a guide to enjoying the home and the island and they are spot on. From beach suggestions to restaurant selections, we were never disappointed.

The home itself is situated in one of the nicest communities we saw. wonderful views, great breezes and all the amenities you need. The layout was perfect for our family of three. Our daughter spent her college spring break with us and the second bedroom seems almost detached from the main part of the home so this made for greater privacy for both of us. Both bedrooms were large and great bath/showers. Nicely decorated. The master bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept on. Between the clear air and the mattress, we slept better and woke more refreshed. (I reluctant to spend so much time on sleep but it was incredible)

Having a private pool was also great. very clean and just the right size for a quick dip and the lounge furniture made it hard to leave sometimes. Breakfast by the pool was a daily occurrence.(there is a little restaurant at the bottom of the driveway that has great breads and breakfast items....don't wait too long in your stay to discover it. get take out and enjoy the patio)

The kitchen was good like most people have mentioned but I don't recall any mention of the Margaretaville mixer available for frozen drinks! I've never been able to make the perfect frozen drink until now. There is a complementary bottle of rum on arrival. Nice touch!

Having someone meet you at the airport and helping you get to the home and settled in is also a nice feature. However, not knowing where we were going and how far we would be from "town" and groceries, we made the recommended grocery stop on the way and rushed, we purchased too much--things we didn't need.

The owners recommend Skyline rent a car. They were there to meet us at the airport and made it easy. However, the vehicle we got was not the best. We wanted a jeep we could take the top off. Recommend a better vehicle-4 door especially if more than 2. also, we had a flat and they don't help-actually charged us for it. The roads are very rough so get something comfortable and do explore!
