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!

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!

Another Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year at Cruzan Sands. Last year, we stayed in the guest house (Awesome). This year we had another couple and stayed in the main house. Words & pictures don't come close to the true beauty of this wonderful villa. Right on the beach where Christopher Columbus landed in 1493. They bring tours to our little private beach - how cool is that! This year, we spent a whole lot more time at the villa just enjoying the pool and the private beach. You can walk to the east around the point to the calm waters of Salt River or if you you have good water shoes, walk in the water to the west to Gentle Winds. Having been to several of the Caribbean Islands, I can say with out a doubt, Cruzan Sands is the best the Caribbean has to offer. Cruzan Sands is right in the middle of the island on the North Shore - it is the perfect place to relax, play, & enjoy all the Caribbean has to offer. Big thank you to the owner Dana and our property manager Austin for making our week another one to remember?

Sister Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had a wonderful girls' getaway at the gorgeous Cruzan Sands Villa. The home was extremely beautiful and accommodating. We had everything we needed for a week that was filled with both relaxed time and plenty of adventures. The villa is centrally located on the island, just minutes from everything we wanted to see and do. Highlights of our trip included kayaking the bioluminescent bay (which was just around the corner), the gorgeous botanical gardens/sugar plantation, a snorkeling trip to Buck Island, and buying beautiful jewelry in Christiansted.

The island has stunning beaches including a turtle nesting beach--returning to see the leatherback turtles hatching and running into the ocean is definitely on my bucket list. We met several travelers who said St. Croix was their favorite of the various islands they had visited. The artisans and the gorgeous architecture added to the flavor of the island.

Besides sightseeing, we enjoyed a lot of downtime at the Villa: drinking our coffee on the beach in the mornings, enjoying the sunsets in the evenings, and snorkeling just steps away from our home. I can't imagine a more beautiful place to stay than Cruzan Sands Villa! Would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and 2 other couples stayed here in January. Perfect size for us.

We were greeted by the property manager Austin who was super helpful when we arrived.

The villa is a wonderfully maintained property. The landscaping was beautiful. It was delightful and super in every respect!!

The view is stunning. We had the beach to ourselves.

When you lay in bed at night all you can hear is the surf. Great!

The kitchen is well stocked with all you could need should you choose to make a meal.

The location is just enough out of the way to be peaceful, but close enough to shopping and restaurants if you rent a car (You really need one to experience the island).

Rowdy Joe's and Off The Wall were 2 good restaurants not too far away. It was about a 15 minute drive into Christensted for other restaurants but the ride was fairly easy, given that the driving is on the left side. The distance into town was not a problem.

We had a fabulous time and enjoyed not only our time spent on St. Croix, but also the time spent at Cruzan Sands. We can't wait to get back!
