About the property

This private, serene home sits high on a hill in a well established neighborhood

Welcome to Villa Tortuga! Tortuga means "turtle" in Spanish. It is a gated, well maintained property in an established neighborhood in Christiansted. This lovely home sits on just under an acre of lush, tropical paradise. Brilliant flamboyant trees and sea views greet you as you enter through the gate. Your first steps through the front door of this vacation paradise draws your eyes immediately to the spectacular view. As you step out onto one of two large verandas, the view becomes even more breathtaking. Enjoy breakfast or dinner on the main veranda, or relax and just read a book. The second private veranda is located off both the bedrooms, another opportunity to enjoy the view or just kick back and relax. The home decor is both elegant and tropical. It has dark mahogany furnishings, accented with vibrant Caribbean colors. There's a 50" flat screen TV in the living room (complete with Netflix) and a flat screen TV in the master bedroom. The master bedroom also features an en suite bathroom. Each bedroom has a queen size bed. In addition, there is a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room. Villa Tortuga is serene and peaceful, yet it's only 5 minutes from downtown Christiansted, shopping and restaurants. If you choose to cook at home, Villa Tortuga is also only a few minutes away from the local supermarket. Open the doors to your Caribbean getaway at Villa Tortuga!

About James

I work in the healthcare industry in Atlanta and Ramon is an IT manager. I'm a military brat and have lived in many places here and abroad. I started going to the Caribbean about 15 years ago. After many trips and several islands later, we decided to buy a home on St. Croix. Ramon is originally from Trinidad and Tobago, so moving to St. Croix was like going home for him. This island is the Caribbean's best kept secret. We hope you enjoy this jewel of an island as much as we do!

James purchased this villa in 2014

Why James chose St. Croix

When looking for a home in St. Croix, we couldn't decide if we wanted a great view or land. Fortunately with this property we were able to get both! The property is about an acre with incredible views of the both the ocean and hillside.

What makes this villa unique

Although Villa Tortuga is only 5 minutes from downtown Christiansted, it is in a very tropical setting that is both serene and private. It's such a beautiful space.

Lovely Home. Great Views. Excellent Location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Villa Tortuga. The house is easy to live in, and conveniently located to both Christiansted and important amenities like supermarkets, gas stations, etc. If you are looking for a great getaway with few hassles, this is it! Everything you could want to do or see is easily accessible, but only IF you can pull yourself away from the view from the galleries - a task we found more difficult with every passing day!

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

I had a fabulous time at Villa Tortuga. I have stayed at a few other places in St. Croix, and this is my favorite by far. It's so close to everything, yet it's very private. I really liked the sea views and the nice breezes thought out the house. I felt totally relaxed and at home. The furnishings seemed new and the bed was really comfortable. The whole house was decorated tastefully. I spent most nights relaxing and enjoying the space. I really had a great time here. I will surely stay here again.
