3 Bedroom, 3 Bath Villa W/ Pool And Ocean Views--Walking Distance To Beach
Nestled a short distance up the hill with a private pool, luscious easterly ocean breezes, and a stunning view of turquoise waters, your vacation villa awaits. Pelican Point is located on the preferred east end of St. Croix, where you will meander along the Caribbean Sea to your handsomely appointed vacation home, for an unforgettable experience in paradise. This home is perfect for shared days, followed by private nights, with the ones you love.
This three bedroom, three bath Villa, includes all the conveniences for a home away from home stay in paradise. The high ceilings and open living area allow refreshing easterly breezes to travel through every room in the house. French doors open onto the large deck overlooking your private pool, which you'll slide into after settling into one of the two spacious upper bedrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready to cook up your favorite family meal.
The deck leads down to the pool and private guest bedroom and bath on the lower level. There is an additional room to sit back and relax or have some drinks while playing shuffle board. Walk out to the pool area or jump on the hammock to grab a nap in the cool breeze after a dip.
Lounge chairs, and an outdoor sitting area for snacking and relaxing, wrap around the pristine pool. Stunning ocean views; so close you can hear the waves break, can be enjoyed from the pool level, as well as the eastern upper deck. You’ll have a great view of the daily activities at the St. Croix Yacht Club where sailing, kayaking and dining are just a couple minutes away. On the West deck, you’ll see and hear the breaking of the reef waves with famous “Buck Island” as the backdrop. Just to the left is a view of the Reef Golf course & Tennis Club and world renowned Duggan’s Reef restaurant. Duggan’s is one the longest standing and most famous steak and seafood restaurants on St. Croix. Take a short walk down to Duggan’s for the best lobster on the island, or use the gas grill to cook your own, as you view the lush garden below the deck. Your view is of two-toned blue water, changing from cerulean to turquoise with foamy white reef-crashing waves framed by the slope of the eastern hills.
When you venture out, you can easily spend the entire day on the east end. Divi Bay Resort & Casino is quite close and features a sandy, palm-lined beach and pool with a few bars and eateries from which to choose. For a fun, unforgettably unique St. Croix treat, stop at Ziggy's Island Market: a gas station - bar - restaurant - convenience store! As far east as you can drive, you'll find Point Udall, a national monument and the absolute best place to catch the first sunrise in the United States each day; park and hike down to super-secluded Jack and Isaac's Bay for stunning snorkeling, intense sunshine, and the opportunity to truly disconnect (nothing man-made is visible from the beach)!
Of course, the rest of the island is just waiting to be explored. Take a sail to Buck Island, dine and shop in downtown Christiansted, watch the sunset from one of the many breathtaking beaches on the West End, and drive through the rainforest to feed beer-drinking pigs. There are more beaches on St. Croix than you could visit in a week, so make sure you talk to some of the locals to find the best secrets that suit your style. Dive at Cane Bay or ferry over for the tasty rum punches and sound of steel drum on Hotel on the Cay. Sandy Point is a treasure, when its open, Shoy's is a secret paradise, and Green Cay is a novel little island off the boardwalk.
Stress free from the start, your stay includes a complimentary arrival service. Preparation for your arrival begins before your plane touches down, as our island concierge service prepares your vacation home for maximum comfort. Once your home is ready, they will travel to the airport to await your arrival or meet you at the house if you prefer. You can be greeted at the airport, assisted with transportation, and escorted to your vacation home. Upon arrival, you will be provided a tour of the home and information about all the activities St Croix has to offer.

About Stan and Lisa Joseph
I grew up on St. Croix and enlisted in the US Air Force after graduating from St. Croix's Country Day High School. My wife is a mid west girl, born in southeast Missouri. We met while on a deployment in Italy. She was also in the Air Force but decided to get out once we were married, to raise our two daughters, while she continued to work in the private sector. After serving 21 years in the military, I retired in 2006. We both continue to work and currently reside near Greensboro, North Carolina. Both of our girls recently left the house; one in college and the other enlisted in the Air Force. It was hard seeing them venture out into life on their own but it gave us a chance to get to know each other all over again. It's like we fell in love all over again. We were also able to pursue some of the things we had been putting off. The islands were calling and we started spending more time in this beautiful paradise where I grew up. We were thrilled when we found out there was an opportunity to purchase Pelican Point. This home was designed perfectly for us and it is one of the best locations on the island--we had to have it! We will continue to list it as a vacation rental because my wife and I have always wanted to share the beauty and serenity of St. Croix with as many people as possible. There is no better place for fun and relaxation than on St. Croix and the comfort of this home is where it begins. We love hosting friends so this endeavor was perfect for us.
Stan and Lisa Joseph purchased this Villa in 2016
Why Stan and Lisa Joseph chose Slob
We purchased this Villa because of the open floor plan, simple comfort, cool easterly breezes and location, location, location! The very first time I brought my wife home she fell in love with the island. Also, I remembered why I loved it so much as I was growing up. This Villa and this island bring tranquility to a very hectic world when you are here; nothing but peace exists. The house has breath-taking views of the ocean without having to drive all the way up a mountain. You can see all of the famous Buck Island National Park and you are just walking distance from the beach, golf course and one of the island’s best steak and seafood restaurants --“Duggan’s Reef.” It’s only a few minutes ride to the Divi Resort and Casino, less than five minutes to the St. Croix Yacht Club or you can just sit back and view sailing regatta activities from the deck of the Villa. Like I said, location, location, location!

Best view on the Island hands down!
The moment you step on this property, you feel like you are in heaven! The wrap-around porch is perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee while the sun rises and a cocktail during sunset. The house has everything you need to enjoy the comforts of home in paradise. While the pictures do not reflect the updates, you will find that the owners take great care of the property and their attention to details have made the home modern but still has that beachy, paradise feel. The home is very clean and the pool area is well-maintained. The solar lights were a nice touch. We didn't have to worry about turning lights on and off outside. They made it very safe when we wanted to take a dip in the pool after dark. Just down from the property is a quaint breakfast and lunch spot. And only a few miles away is the most eastern part of the United States where there is a park and hiking trails. Overall, the property and location were simply exquisite! If you are looking for a relaxing spot to take in all that St. Croix has to offer, this is the place. Safe, clean, rejuvenating!
The perfect house for a perfect vacation!
We loved this house! It was located at the end of a private drive with no neighbors - huge bonus. The pool was larger than pools at other houses we have rented and was very clean with a gorgeous view and new patio furniture. The kitchen was updated and had everything we needed for cooking - including a new BBQ on the deck! They also had a great movie collection we enjoyed in the evenings!!
An absolute must while staying here - dinner at Duggan's Restaurant located at the bottom of the hill! We ate the best meal in the Virgin Islands at this restaurant!
The island you can see from the deck is called Buck Island Reef. It had the best snorkeling of all the sights I have visited in Hawaii or the Caribbean!
I would highly recommend this house! Great people to work with and you will not find a better location or a more beautiful view! I would change nothing about our stay!
Kim, it warms our heart to know you enjoyed your trip to St. Croix sooo much. That is what a week in paradise is all about. Ready to have you guys back anytime! Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review.

House and location was great, Pool, games, and ping pong table great for kids. Property manager is very helpful. We will be back!
Ben! Glad to hear you all enjoyed your stay. We'll look forward to hosting you and the family again.

We just returned from our stay at Pelican Point Villa and this property was absolutely perfect for us. located about 15 minutes east of Christiansted, we were able to enjoy the seclusion and tranquility of the east end of the island, while being a very short drive to all the action. The house's beauty was only eclipsed by the views. We had breakfast every morning on the balcony overlooking the ocean and spent every evening cooling off in the pool. The bedrooms being air conditioned was a definite plus as we were able to sleep in cool comfort. Stephanie was extremely helpful picking us up at the airport and guiding us to the house. She also had great tips on what to do and where to buy certain items. I would recommend renting a set of snorkeling gear and keeping it in the trunk the whole week. There are tons of great snorkeling spots so you will want to have your gear handy no
matter where you are. If you are looking for a great place to stay with your family I would highly recommend this place.
James, thanks for taking the time to review your stay. We are so happy you and your guests enjoyed your stay at Pelican Point. Steph is wonderful and we are lucky to have her as our on-island host to guest. She loves the island and is super responsive. We love getting reviews like this because it lets us know we are doing what we set out to do--share the beautiful St. Croix experience with as many people as possible. Glad you got to snorkel at so many locations. It is one of our favorite past times. We are happy to offer you the return guest discount next year. See you then.

Best view ever!
This was by far the best rental option for us. We had the luxury of an entire 3 bedroom, 3 bath home (with a private pool) for a fraction of the cost of a hotel/resort price. The home is in the perfect location, not far from resturants. Our only negative comment, we wished we had booked more time. Loved it!
Ruth, it was a pleasure having you and Michael as our guests. Don't worry....Michael will do better with the driving on the next trip :-) Looking forward to you coming back.

Unbelievable Ocean Views
Our entire family had a marvelous time vacationing in St. Croix at Pelican Point. The views from the house are unbelievably beautiful! You’ll never grow tired of looking out to Buck Island and Teague Bay from inside the villa or outside on the deck.
The property manager was very helpful and the house had everything we needed for our stay. The location on the east end of the island was perfect for us; a beach is just down the hill from the villa, Duggan’s Reef Seafood Restaurant is very close by as well, snorkeling at Point Udall (Isaac Bay) is nearby, and there is even a miniature golf course only a few minutes-drive away. Besides the beautiful views, it was also really peaceful and relaxing just hanging out at the villa with the soothing ocean breezes; whether we were at the pool, grilling dinner on the deck, or just resting in the hammock watching the stars.
We feel so lucky to have found this place…two thumbs up for the Pelican Point Villa!
Jay, we are glad you guys had a great time and made it out to Point Udall. Issac Bay is is one of our favorite snorkeling spots. Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at the villa!
