Perfect Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we've rented a villa and it won't be the last. We cannot describe how thrilled our whole family was with our stay @ Millpoint sugar mill in St. Croix. The island has over 100 sugar mills that were built 250 years ago. This property was situation on 8 acres. The villa was built around the sugar mill. The driveway and the estate were surrounded by large beautiful flowering shrubs. From the pool/deck eating area our view in every direction was lush landscape and calm ocean. We enjoyed watching sunsets and stargazing @ night. We could not see a home or a building in any direction. The privacy was perfect for our family of 12. We felt like we were in a movie. The great room included a large kitchen where many of us could prepare food at the same time. There was also a dining room and living room. We never used the dining room. All our meals were eaten outside at the table that seated 14. Each room was uniquely appointed. I especially enjoyed the fact that some of the showers backed up directly to the unique stone of the mill and were individually decorated. Each bathroom was hand painted with birds, flower pots etc. The windows were louvered allowing the breeze & sounds of the ocean although air conditioning was also provided. Our pool was clean and had a great diving board. Everything we needed was supplied in the kitchen, bathrooms and pool. The only thing I missed in renting a villa/home was not having maid service to take care of towels and dishes when we were leaving. Our stay was very reasonably priced for a 6 bedroom villa for a week. We were on the side of the island away from tourism which we enjoyed immensely. It was very tropical, not crowded on the roads or restaurants and no chains, strip malls or big box stores anywhere nearby but still close enough to purchase anything we needed.. We are already looking for a villa for next year through this site. None of us had ever been to St. Croix. We came prepared for sun, mosquitoes and no see-um's but we did not have problem with any of those things but we did have a few bee stings. The bushes were flowering, the bees nesting and we did have our share of "sticky" sweet drinks outside. The gardener was there 3 times during the week and routinely sprays for bees but we wished we would have sprayed more for bees at the beginning and hosed down the table and deck after meals. We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary & the manager had personally baked a cake for us!

SPECTACULAR!

  • 5 of 5

Truly a one of a kind property. It's a perfect venue for a family vacation. We spent the week there with 10 family members. We had privacy, plenty of room and great common areas for getting together. It has a pool, with fantastic views and is secluded and safe, yet close enough to activities. The property manager is highly responsive. If you are considering a Caribbean vacation I highly recommend this property.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

The view are simply incredible. The place and space is quiet and serene. It really feels like a personal oasis. I loved the rooms and the private pool. The stars at night are stunning! I highly recommend Mill Point.

Literally perfection!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was more than we even dreamed! We chose to stay here for 5 days with our family and also had our wedding right in the sugar mill arch overlooking the pool and ocean. Not only was the house breathtaking and well kept, but the staff and property managers were so accommodating and helpful. House and all rooms are beautiful and very private. We will definitely be coming back!!

AMAZING!!!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here when it was privately owned by a husband & wife. I see that it has been sold and majorly updated. I can only imagine how much better it must be now. We went down with family back in March/April of '06 I want to say. I may be a year or two off. Anyway, this place is absolutely the best! I stayed in what they called "the dungeon", the room that is down and kind of away from the main part of the house. I loved how unique this property was. And that it was an old sugar mill. It is truly the most unique place I have ever had the pleasure of staying. I would highly recommend it! The price really isn't that bad considering the view. Holy cow! And it sleeps up to 14, so that really is affordable! We are considering going back again. We got to stay here for free since we knew the owners. I didn't realize just how blessed we were. But I would totally pay the cost now anyway :)

A spectacular view of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was all we had hoped it would be, and more. The view is nothing short of spectacular, the beaches are only a 2-3 minute drive away, and the villa itself was amazing! We had 12 people (2 per room), and we were NEVER crowded. The individual rooms are secluded, the common areas (pool, patio, dining room, living room, and kitchen) are all centrally located and perfect for everyone to get together in, or retreat to your room for privacy. There are no close neighbors to bother or worry about, but restaurants and activities are only a short drive away. I definitely recommend renting a vehicle, and the great thing is that someone from the property management will meet you at the airport, and escort you to the villa. We did have issues with some creepy crawlies, but you're in the Caribbean, and being from Michigan where we don't have that issue for the most part, we still knew that would be a part of our visit, no matter where we stayed. There were very few in the rooms, mostly around the damp pool area, so it was expected and we took it in stride. There was one minor issue with a sewage odor in one of the rooms, but I texted Carissa and it was taken care of immediately! We enjoyed our stay there IMMENSELY and would DEFINITELY go back again. Thank you, Jennifer and Carissa for a wonderful vacation!
