About Sam Dike

My partner and I are from Southern California and first visited St. Croix in 2004. We purchased our first home in 2005 which is now a successful vacation rental and is listed with HomeAway.

During our 10 year run on St. Croix we have opened two galleries in historic downtown Christiansted, D&D Studio - Fine Art Photography where we featured my partners incredible artwork which is now hanging in both our villas. In 2011 we opened Bassin Fine Art, a beautiful gallery dedicated to fine artists on St. Croix. Ted and I moved to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico in July 2014 and plan to open a gallery featuring his work.

Sam Dike purchased this villa in 2006

Why Sam Dike chose St. Croix

We fell in love with Hidden Valley Villa when we started looking for a investment property. The floor plan is perfect for entertaining, raising a family and it's perfect for a vacation rental.

What makes this villa unique

Hidden Valley Villa is a gem of a property! From the unique location which has gorgeous trade winds throughout the year to the spaciousness of the entire home. Each room is well appointed with A/C, and best of all have sweeping views of the valley and the Caribbean Sea. We love the modern vibe of the home, the deep pool and expansive deck. Sitting on the deck at night watching the fireflies with a rum cocktail is an awesome experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family could not have asked for a more perfect week! We arrived at Hidden Valley Villa and were so impressed by how new and clean everything was. Sam informed us that it was recently renovated, but this felt like we were staying in a brand new house, every single thing was new! Very quiet and serene except for the sound of our three boys splashing in the huge pool all day long. This is a big roomy house and it fit our needs perfectly. My mother had been going through seroius health issues these last two years and my husband and I wanted to take her somewhere quiet where we could feel at home.The first night we ate at Duggans Reef which is very close, Mom had been there 10 years ago and was so happy it was still there. Whiskey lobster is a must. Other places we enjoyed were Ziggy's and Savant. We grilled chicken on the BBQ at home on a couple of nights. The boys and I hiked out to Jack's Bay and felt like we were on a perfect desert island, the snorkeling out there is world class. We didn't get to explore the rest of the island as much as we wanted because we were so relaxed at this house and felt no need to leave. That means we will explore more on our next trip to St. Croix! For our last night we went back to Duggans and they remembered us!

Great week in St. Croix

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in St. Croix. Colette Woodson, the property manager, could not have been greater. We arrived after dark and lost our way. Colette talked us through several missteps and then came and got us. Back at the house she had a snack and rum punch waiting for us. We can't say too much about how great she made our visit.

The house is really lovely. Our only tips for other vacationers are these: it is NOT an easy walk to the beach so we found that description misleading. The house is very open and the drapes in the back are very sheer. If you prefer window coverings for privacy, you will be uncomfortable.

Having said that, we want to stress that the house is beautiful and we had a great time. The view from the house and deck is lovely, the pool area is furnished nicely, and we would highly recommend it to all.

Wonderful Week at Hidden Valley Villa in St. Croix

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a wonderful and relaxing week at Hidden Valley Villa. The house is even nicer that the photos indicate. The interior is beautiful and bright, with many photos and paintings throughout. The private pool and sun deck are just outside the living room and it was great to take a dip throughout the day. There are beautiful views of Buck Island and the hills surrounding the villa on the deck. Many restaurants a short 5-10 minute drive from the villa along with a small grocery store and gas station. We cooked in the villa a couple nights and the kitchen had all the cookware, dishes & utensils and you could want. The villa has three bedrooms with 2 master suites and would be perfect for 2 couples. We will definitely return to St. Croix and Hidden Valley Villa.

Perfect villa for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Hidden Valley Villa really was the perfect place to stay! We had 3 adult couples so 3 bedrooms each with their own bath was essential. The decor and furnishings were beautiful and the viiews were amazing! We loved grilling on the BBQ, relaxing in the pool, and gazing at all the stars at night. HVV is in a perfect location- quiet enough that it feels like it's just you, but close enough to walk to the local beach or drive a short few miles to Christensted. Loved every minute of our time here and looking forward to coming back again! So much to see and do in St. Croix!

Amazing House !!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was nothing short of delightful. The house is beautiful and comfortable. Everything appeared to be new. The breeze blowing through the house was nice, there was no need for the a/c. The pool area and view was where we spent a lot of our time relaxing and watching birds during the day and the stars at night. House was clean and even nicer than the pictures. A lot of Ted's artwork graces the house and is amazing.

This was our third trip to St. Croix and we love the island. Staying somewhere nice like this makes the trip even better. No need to worry about anything! Thanks Sam & Ted!

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I visited the Hidden Valley Villa Dec 13th -Dec 20th 2014 and didn't want to leave. Working with Sam was so amazing and he communicates quickly which is always nice when renting a home. Very clean and updated home. It is even better in person than what you see if pictures . What an amazing view of Buck Island! If you are looking for a "home" feel and want relaxation then this is for you! Must have a car to get around but that is easy. We loved having our coffee and breakfast out by the pool looking at Buck Island. After doing some sightseeing it was so great to just go back to the house and relax in the pool with a cocktail. It was heaven. Just can't say enough about working with Sam the owner and the décor of the home. Felt very safe there and sad we had to go. If anyone needs to speak with me you are welcome to email me. You can ask Sam and he will give you my email. I will be happy to help.

Thanks again Sam, we love St Croix and loved the house!

Incredible Stay at Hidden Valley Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay on St. Croix in five years and all I have to say is that we were totally blown away by this villa! The pictures on Home Away are nice but in reality it’s like a magazine and my wife said it felt like we were in one of those HGTV Designer shows! Beautiful art in every single room, this is sophisticated island living. Spotless, and fully stocked, we didn’t have to bring anything but our bathing suits and flip flops which we basically lived in the whole week. The villa is spread out so no-one felt like they were on top of each other. The big new kitchen had everything we could need, even a blender for our morning smoothies. The location is in a quiet valley, surrounded by trees and birds with an awesome ocean view of Buck Island. The designer bathrooms are nicer than other villas we’ve stayed in, and my daughter loved having her own luxurious bathroom. There is a nice lime tree just outside one of the bedrooms and we made good use of them in our nightly Cruzan rum on ice by the pool. Buck Island with Llewellyn is a must, do the half day. Had brunch again at Sand Castles Beach Café in Frederiksted, really good omelets (plan to take your time, no rushing here;) Lisa recommended a place called Villa Morales near Frederiksted and was by far the best Caribbean food we’ve had. We went on Friday night, she said order sautéed shrimp with rice even though it’s not on the menu, swimming in butter, so good! My daughter is a vegan and we found a cute and good place in Christiansted called Ital in Paradise, we went there twice. Our last night we did the traditional Duggan’s Reef and it was great, even in a big downpour!

My only request is for the fireflies to come out every night by the pool deck rather than only on the first night we were here. Can we make that happen for our next visit?:))
