3 weeks in Paradise
We recently spent 3 weeks in this wonderful oceanside home to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. There was plenty of room for all of us to spend time together plus have privacy if needed. Austin met us at the airport to bring us to the Villa were we were treated to a delicious meal by Chef Juliana. Her meals are not to be missed (the best meals we had on the island). She cooked us 3 different times, each time leaving us with full bellies and leftovers for days. Austin and Selwin were so nice and helpful. They tended to our many needs (including leaks, toilet clogs, and air conditioning malfunctions) so that these issues were only minor inconveniences. We were was really disappointed because the so called "beach" is rocky, shallow, and filled with so many sea urchins, it made even getting your feet wet dangerous. We made the best of it and explored many other St. Croix beaches instead (Mermaid Beach at the Buccaneer Hotel was our favorite beach on the island). The pool was beautiful and we spent many an hour playing games and hanging out. The house has everything to make the pool and trips to the beach easy including pool toys, floats, masks, snorkels, fins, chairs, coolers, and umbrellas. Just pack your clothes and love Villa Santa Cruz as much as we did. Thank you Nora and Steve for making our reservation process so easy and Thank you Austin, Selwin, and Chef Juliana for everything you did to make our stay "Practically Perfect in Every Way"
Villa Santa Cruz was very nice. There were 7 adults and 2 small children and the house was large enough to accommodate all of us. Austin met us at the airport and we followed him to the villa. He took the time to show us the villa and explain things to us. The owners had arranged snacks and drinks for us when we arrived which was a very nice gesture. We had a great week. Thank you Nora, Steve and Austin.
Plenty of room and beautiful views
This property has beautiful views from almost every room. We had 4 kids with us plus sister's family with plenty of room to spare. The stay was overall enjoyable.We arrived to the house after a very long day of traveling to a nice meal made by Austin's wife, was appreciated as the trip in was a bit rough. The property is nice yet does need some minor maintenance repair, small minor fixes that need attention. Not realizing they are on rain water, the water pressure in all bathrooms is not what we are accustomed to, very light. Overall a nice stay.
Thank you for your honest review and for staying at Villa Santa Cruz. All of the water for our 5,000 square foot villa depends on rainwater and is stored in our 45,000 gallon cistern. If our cistern is running low we purchase truck loads of water. All bathrooms have water savers and do not have the same water pressure as we are accustomed to stateside. Paradise has it’s issues and we can relate to your stateside expectations. Our Villa is occupied 24-7 and we have blocked time in the fall for a major facelift as we have not wanted to disturb our guests during their stay. We hope you will return to our beautiful island and to Villa Santa Cruz.

Beautiful property with everything we needed. Absolutely stunning view ! 85 degrees and sunny every day. Austin is a top notch property manager, and his wife , Juliana is a wonderful chef! Would definitely book this property again!
This is our second time staying and it was amazing again! Would highly recommend to anyone!
The Salt River Trench is one of the most popular dive spots on St. Croix directly in front of the villa. Cane Bay Beach is 15 minutes away with a dive shop providing shore and boat dives.
