Nestled high on a ridge top along scenic road on St Croix's prestigious North Shore sits Brimstage Estate, named after a quaint country village located in the Northwest of England (the owners parents are the Lord and Lady of the Manor Brimstage.) The 3 bedroom/2.5 bath villa offers 180 degree views of St. Croix that stretch from the North to South shore and include; the US and British Virgin Islands, Salt River, Buck Island, Green Cay, and Christiansted.
The pool with swim up pool bar and outdoor kitchen offer an ideal place to enjoy an afternoon cocktail and burgers on the grill or perhaps end your evening in the hot tub sipping champagne as you gaze out upon the twinkling lights of Christiansted at night and the million dollar view.
Further Details: Ideally situated facing east this charming Caribbean villa takes full advantage of the constant trade winds. The main villa consists of an open living/dining room, kitchen, master bedroom and bath, and half bath. There are 20 foot open beamed ceilings and lovely ceramic floors throughout. Step through the double French doors out onto the wraparound arched gallery that has an outdoor dining table and sitting area as well as shaded hammock. Just off the main patio besides the pool, outdoor kitchen and hot tub is the separate Caribbean themed guest sleeping quarters with a large private deck. The two bedrooms have separate entrances and share a common bathroom. One of the bedrooms has a queen size bed and the other has two queen size beds. Below the guest sleeping quarters is the office with its own deck and is equipped with broadband internet, copy/fax machine, coffeemaker, sink, and microwave.
The villa is located mid-island on St Croix and is within 15 minutes of Christiansted and 20 minutes of Frederiksted. It is 5 minutes from Cane Bay and the beach, snorkeling, and diving and 10 minutes from golfing at Carambola. There is a tenant living in the separate guest house on the hillside below the main house in case of emergencies; your privacy is their main concern.
You will be met at the airport and escorted to the villa.
What an experience! Our two weeks at Brimstage Estate were indescribable. Every day out exploring... every night in the hot tub. The villa is perfect in every way. Our favorite area is the Northshore... we will be back!
This rental has everything that you will need! It is very private with the best views on the island! My husband and I actually currently live on St. Croix and this is the rental we chose. Wally is very personable and makes sure you have everything to have the perfect vacation. My family and I spent our days/nights at the villa out on the patio grilling, enjoying the hut tub, swimming in the pool, and sitting at the table all while enjoying each others company and the spectacular scenery. The furnishings in the house are also gorgeous and comfortable. Don't miss the opportunity to rent this villa, it really is a once in a lifetime experience.
I'm not sure I've ever given a five star rating before because I'm very picky about where I stay but this place is definately worthy of my rating. I had spoken to the owner (Wally) a couple times before our visit and his tips and insight for our trip was helpful since it was our first trip to the island. We were met at the airport by a very nice young lady and escorted to the property where we were given a brief tour and overview of the house, grounds, pool, hot tub, etc.... The entire property inside and out is beautiful, very well maintained, and looks even better in person than the pics. We have stayed in VBRO properties several times before and we are very picky where we stay but I can say this is one of the nicest places we have stayed in the Caribbean.
This was the 3rd time we've stayed in this home. We have discussed staying somewhere else just for a change but know we wouldn't find another place this perfect. The views and the breezes are amazing. The pool and hot tub are wonderful. The patio provides room in the sun and a large covered area if you need to get out of the sun. The hammock, the sound system, the outdoor kitchen, are all great. The beds are comfy and the bedrooms separate enough to allow lots of privacy. The kitchen is fully stocked along with beach towels, cooler, beachchairs and really anything else you can think of. This place has it all . ITS PERFECT and ITS BEAUTIFUL
My daughter and I love St Croix and chose Brimstage as our home away from home for Christmas. From the time Anne met me at the airport and escorted me to the house, I knew I was in for a special treat! There was a huge gift basket of fruit, wine, cheese and crackers which was a very thoughtful touch. There were necessary condiments and spices provided and the kitchen is a cook's delight. We enjoyed dining out but also prepared many fine meals in both the indoor and outdoor kitchens...grilling and enjoying the hot tub at night was a relaxing way to wind down after spending days at our favorite beaches! There were beach chairs, coolers, snorkel gear and plenty of beach towels provided for our use. Another bonus was the fact that all cleaning supplies, toilet tissue, dish soap, laundry detergent, etc were provided for our entire stay of over a month. The house itself is very well appointed...good wifi, great music system, comfortable beds, nice linens and towels, great water pressure, lovely grounds, plenty of dining and seating options both indoors and outside. The pool with swim up bar is great and the views are simply magnificent. Wally was very good about checking in on us and making sure we were taken care of...although we've never actually met, he feels like a long lost friend! The house phone with answering system was great for local and stateside calls, especially since Verizon isn't Island friendly...we were able to "disconnect" without being totally isolated. St Croix is a magical place and Brimstage did not disappoint. We always feel at home on Island and certainly enjoyed all that Wally and his beautiful home offered! Wish I was there right now!
We were looking to explore St Croix and Brimstage was an excellent location as a home base to see all parts of the island. We rented a 4 door 4 wheel drive truck to haul 5 folks all over the island and had a great time visiting Fredricksted, Christiansted, Cruzan Rum Distillery, several beaches, and restaurants. As other reviews have stated, the views are awesome as Brimstage sits 680 feet above sea level. You can see St Thomas / St John on clear days, Salt River Bay, Christiansted, east side and south side of the island. Amenities were very good with WiFi access, snorkel/fins, beachchairs, hot tub, etc. Definitely recommend staying at Wally's place.
This was our first trip to St. Croix. We love the island! Friendly people!! Brimstage was Great! Perfect location, gorgeous views and so easy to travel to and from as we drove all around the beautiful island. The house itself was very much like home and so relaxing. Awesome winds kept it very comfortable. Anything we could possibly need was available and Wally was so helpful with info about the island, restaurants, places of interest to see.
We would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a great vacation home.
