High upon a north-facing hillside at the end of a winding country road on the island of St. Croix, lies an opulent villa known as Dragonfly. This palatial property contains six bedrooms and can generously accommodate groups of up to twelve guests. Situated on top of lush and green elevation, this villa has been blessed with clear panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea that literally stretch out to the neighboring Virgin Islands.
Guests staying at Dragonfly are never left wanting as the villa has been imbued with many choice amenities. The villa’s sprawling, heavenly gardens provide a shield of privacy over the property and constitute a veritable rainbow of fruit bearing trees including banana, mango and orange. Popular features include a large luxury swimming pool, furnished terrace and a barbeque grill adjacent to a covered alfresco dining area. Additionally, the home features broadband access, a home theater, gym and total climate control.
Dragonfly’s interior has been treated with captivating custom finishes and murals all done by local artisans. The front door opens to a large great room, with plentiful seating, adjacent to the kitchen, TV room and office. This large gallery spans the length of the house on the main level and stretches out to the backyard terrace. The kitchen is capable of meeting even the most demanding cook’s requirements and has been made inviting for guests with both a central island and breakfast bar.
Nearly all of Dragonfly’s six comfortable bedrooms possess balconies with breathtaking views of the sea. Two bedrooms located on the upper level each have king beds, en-suite bathrooms and share a large balcony. Two other bedrooms on the upper level have king and queen size beds respectively, with shared en-suite facilities and balcony. A fifth bedroom with a queen bed is found in the solarium, and the sixth bedroom is located in a separate poolside apartment with its own living space, kitchen, game room, twin beds and en-suite bath.
Guests of Dragonfly are encouraged to experience St. Croix’s many attractions and activities. Explore the island through an eco-tour or horseback ride. Once an appetite has been worked up, St. Croix’s many eateries offer culinary delicacies from around the world including French, Thai and indigenous Caribbean dishes. Have your vacation, your way in fabulous Cane Bay!

The villa was beautiful and the perfect size for our group. The weather was great. We were all a little nervous about the access roads to the villa and the very steep driveway which made us not want to go out at night. Otherwise, lovely vacation. - Susan W., Massachusetts, USA

St. Croix is a quiet island with the friendliest of people. The Cane Bay Area has some good restaurants...Eat and Rowdy Joe\'s. Driving was a challenge...steep, not well maintained roads with many switchbacks added to the challenge of left side driving. We found the roosters difficult. They start crowing around 4am and with young children we started our days much earlier than we wanted. The house was clean and spacious and the bedrooms comfortable. Pool was old but fine. Paul our escort was a great source of information. Big Beard\'s sailing charter was great. We had such a terrific time...we went again! The captain and crew were absolutely the best with the children. - Char F., Virginia, USA

The house was beautiful. I have a few comments- several of the bathroom showers/sinks did not have hot water. In fact, the water was barely warm. Also, we stayed 5 nights and it would have been nice to have maid service one day. We have rented vacation homes throughout the Caribbean and this service is usually included at least once during our stay.

Great views, accommodations, most things in good working order...PLENTY OF HOT WATER, very appreciated! Wish there were some beach chairs (hard to spend the day at the beach for these getting older bones) and some more mats for the beach. Kitchen was wonderful.

Dragonfly was a remarkable experience. We all loved it. It was beautiful, well- stocked and certainly inviting. My family had a wonderful Christmas vacation. The only complaints were the switchbacks and the steepness of the roads.
