St. Croix's jewel, Villa Larimar, is a designer masterpiece nestled on two hilltop acres overlooking the blue Caribbean. You can see all the way to St. John and St. Thomas, but no one can see you in your tropical hideaway. There is a full-time caretaker in a separate apartment on-site to maintain the condition of this 4200-square-foot home, which has been featured in House Beautiful magazine. If you are looking for serenity, privacy and lush beauty, look no further. We have also just completed the installation of self-contained 3.5KW solar system with battery back-up. No loud generator or diesel fumes - come to Paradise and reduce your carbon footprint!
There are four spacious bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. The Master Bedroom has a canopy King bed, entertainment center, sitting area and a lovely antique desk for that office work you just had to bring with you. (Don't worry, there's broadband WiFi throughout, so you can always get your email.) It has a magnificent view of the Caribbean through the huge picture window.
The Upstairs Master features an enormous balcony with patio table and chaises -- and a view that will take your breath away -- plus constant tropical breezes that make this room a favorite with returning guests.
The two interior bedrooms each has two twin beds (convertible to queen bed or queen + twins if desired -- sleeping layout is flexible so ask and we will try to make it happen).
In true West Indian style, the kitchen is in a separate wing from the bedrooms, across the pool area. You never live with the heat or smell of cooking. The kitchen is equipped with stainless steel side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, gas range, microwave, blender, Cuisinart, coffeemaker, and all the cooking and serving utensils you could want. There is even picnicware to take to the beach. We provide everything you need, including a gas BBQ grill for those big lobsters you're going to catch!
The private pool sits in an open courtyard with lush landscaping and a spectacular ocean view.
This fully environmentally friendly retreat has its own cistern, solar system and battery back up. Our caretaker will help you find your way around and make you comfortable, and keep the place in ship shape. Michael is also an advanced SCUBA diver, in case you want to brush up on your skills, and a boat captain for your sailing or fishing trip. He will meet you at the airport and act as your concierge, all included in the rental amount. Michael's goal is to have the guests of Villa Larimar loving this Island as much as he does before you depart!
We provide the beach towels, beach chairs and sunscreen you'll want to take down the road to Cane Bay, one of the loveliest beaches in the Virgin Islands. A three-minute drive from Larimar, Cane Bay is a family-friendly, pet-friendly gathering spot. It boasts some excellent beachfront restaurants, a dive shop, kayak rentals, and what SCUBA divers generally recognize as the best dive wall in the Caribbean. It is also the location of the infamous bike leg of the 'The Beast,' St Croix's triathlon that serves for many as the warm up for the Iron Man.
Larimar is a short hop from Carambola, St. Croix’ top golf course, and a quick ten minutes' drive from the Henry E. Rohlsen International Airport.
Guests of Larimar also are provided with passes to Carambola Renaissance Beach Resort, a five star Marriott property. These passes allow you all of the amenities that their guests receive plus a 10% discount on food and beverages, spa treatments and activities! Go for a workout or enjoy the fabulous Friday night Pirates Buffet with Mocko Jumbies (stilt spirit dancers)and Kiki's Flaming Gypsies, or just relax on their manicured beach
St. Croix is America's best kept tourist secret, a tropical adventure that US citizens can enjoy without even needing a passport. The beaches are never crowded, the old Danish towns of Frederiksted and Christiansted are a sightseer's delight. Buck Island is one of the nation's only underwater national parks, a fantastic day trip on a catamaran or antique sailing vessel.
