This private, gated residence evokes the romance of exotic travels around the globe and the serenity of the far east, right on St. Croix’s east end.
A large living room shares its seashell collection with plantation furnishings and designer fabrics from the spice isles of Indonesia. Built-in cabinetry throughout the house recalls storage crafted for a sailing schooner, and West Indian-style window shutters open to allow in the trade winds that give the villa its name.
The spacious kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel appliances and a huge center island with built-in wine rack and custom mahogany bar. French doors beside the... indoor dining area lead to a trellised terrace where you can dine outside whenever you want to enjoy the sound and scent of the surf.
Two bedrooms on the main level have custom coral and tile en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom faces the sea and has its own private sun terrace above the pool, while the second overlooks lush tropical plantings.
On the lower garden level of the villa, you find a very private studio suite with its own galley kitchen, king bed, flat screen TV and overstuffed couch. It opens onto a large pool, with cut coral tile deck, where you can laze away balmy days in the water with a close-up view of the Caribbean.
With its many charms, Whispering Wind’s most unforgettable feature is its white sandy beach where you can stroll, swim, or snorkel with only frigate birds for company. Search for shells each morning and collect smooth sea glass at sunset—you’ll discover a sense of well-being you’d almost forgotten was possible.

The villa size was perferfect. There was more than enough space for my immediate family and my in laws. All the rooms were air conditioned. It was clean and appropriately stocked. We had fun just relaxing in the villa. - Katreena S., New York, USA

The villa was great, all the comforts of home. The power went out and the generator did not kick in. We called and Cliff the maintance man was right out to fix the problem. - Michael C., Arkansas, USA
