About Dana & Scott

Dana & Scott got the island fever in 2002, when they built their first vacation rental, Crystal Sands Villa in the Turks and Caicos Islands. They live in Providenciales now. They wanted to make sure they kept their roots in the USA, however, and St Croix is one of the most remarkable US Territories around, being one of the few islands that is completely surrounded by the Caribbean Sea!

Dana & Scott purchased this villa in 2012

Why Dana & Scott chose St. Croix

The beach at Estate Salt River is one of the most picturesque settings on earth! The unique culture of the US Virgin Islands is appealing and inviting!

What makes this villa unique

Cruzan Sands Villa is located in a beautiful National Park. Our villa is removed approximately one mile from the main roads.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our Guestbook: We had a wonderful time. Spent almost every moment in the sun and sand. Beached out and swam in the pool, too. Scarlett perfected her handstands and forward flips in the water, Gavin became a pro at swimming (with his swim vest) under the water and Cameron was our napping pro! Saw sting rays - big fish - little fish - surfers - fishermen and even a man on a horse swimming along! Beautiful house and view! We had a great family time! I think we created memories for a lifetime here. A lot of family bonding and those ocean winds seem to blow away any thoughts of home or OK routines. Happy to have spent a week at the Cruzan Sands Villa in St. Croix USVI!

Extremely disappointed

  • 3 of 5

I am so disappointed in this property. The pictures are not what this place truly is. You can't even see the beach because the trees and hedges are so overgrown. We paid a lot of money for ocean front/ beach front property that we can't even see. And the beach is completely covered with trash, seaweed, and other foreign articles. I was so excited to see crystal white beaches and all I see is dirty, disgusting water. You can't even enjoy the water because of the rocks. Shoes are a must!

The pool is tiny! Not at all what I was expecting. Yeah there is a large deck because the pool is so small.

The kitchen is covered in small bugs that keep getting into our food. Fully stocked kitchen, they don't even have a pizza cutter. There isn't any water pressure and the house is so hot! You have to pay extra to use the air conditioner they make sure you leave your credit card when you arrive. There are not any vents in the bathroom, therefore; when you get out of the shower you're already sweating since there's no airflow.

I tried to get an earlier flight home but unfortunately there aren't any available. The grounds keeper needs to trim the trees and hedges b/c this place is so overgrown and messy! They also need to make sure that the bulbs work in the lamps and the batteries are working in the tv remotes. Apparently the pictures of this property were taken soon after it was built, because it is not this nice on the outside. Granite countertops, well I've never seen granite with wood showing. It's too bad that my much needed vacation was ruined by unsupported pictures. I spent a lot of money to be so disappointed!

Owner's Response: My husband and I are very concerned about the welfare of our guests. Other than the very positive report from our property manager during their stay, neither we nor our property managers were contacted by these people. We had heard from our property managers that the father indicated they were having a great time and that he was impressed with such a clean, well maintained villa. Later, when questioned about his daughter’s review at the end of the stay, he indicated there was a personal family argument which prompted his daughter to attempt to leave the island before she even left the airport upon arrival. We are so sorry for the child’s immaturity and are happy that the rest of her family had a wonderful time. The father apologized for his daughter’s review. The daughter would not respond to our multiple attempts to contact her.

Cruzan Sands Villa

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained inside and out. The pictures are truly what the property looks like, there were no surprises. Having the ocean out your back door was great. We saw stingrays, large conch and more. We enjoyed the constant breeze coming off the ocean on the covered back patio. We can't say enough about how awesome our vacation was and our thanks to the owners for offering such a wonderful place for rental guests. We hope to come back again. The owners and property manager were very responsive to all our questions. We recommend eating at Le Rein Chicken Shack, the best BBQ, chicken, and fish on the island. We would also recommend Big Beards for the all day Buck Island snorkeling. Their food was really good and the crew and captain made sure everyone was having a good time. The Tan Tan jeep tour was a lot of fun, however lunch and vehicle breakdowns were an issue all day.

AWESOME GET AWAY !!!

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time, a perfect place to decompress. Upon arriving, the caretaker, Austin, met me at the airport and took time to show me the area and toured the house and its operations. The house was very clean and neat with plenty of amenities. The private pool, the sandy beach what more does one need. If your planning a trip to St Croix i would highly recommend Cruzan Sands Villa !!!

Perfect villa and vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on St. Croix, celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary. The villa was very nice! It is new, well furnished, well maintained by their caretaker, Austin, and is positioned on a beautiful sandy beach. The booking process was very easy - I even got to talk to the owner on the phone with questions. I have been to St. Croix many times, and have stayed in several other villas. By far, this was my best experience by. I can't recommend this villa higher!

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five just enjoyed a really wonderful week at Cruzan Sands. The villa really is as good as it looks - very private, spacious, and well appointed. Then of course there is the pool, the beach, the sun, and the outstanding view.

Austin was very helpful, and his wife Juliana prepared two wonderful meals for us (with lots of leftovers) - highly recommend.

I also agree with other comments that you really do need to rent a car to get around and explore the island. Even though we spend most of our time at the villa, there is still a lot to do and see around St. Croix.

Can't wait to go back again one day...

Best Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the guest house with our two young children and had an amazing time. The villa was perfect and the view was beautiful. Austin was extremely helpful and his wife, Juliana, is a wonderful cook. We would recommend making a reservation with Juliana for the evening that you arrive, so then you don’t have to rush off to the grocery store or a restaurant and you can relax right when you get there. The villa has everything to offer, so there is no need to leave besides running to the grocery store for food. Both the pool and the ocean by the villa are refreshing and convenient. This place is second to none and we look forward to our next trip back. Best family vacation!
