Perched on an idyllic promontory overlooking the shimmering Caribbean, Island Views is a luxurious villa on a grand scale. Impressive stone pillars and manicured hedges guide you towards its welcoming entrance. Within this opulent two-storeyed façade you’ll find spectacular rooms looking out over a magical bay dotted with islands. Hidden from view is your magnificent infinity pool fed by the sparkling water of a cascading waterfall. Here, east of Christiansted, you’ll find a retreat where every detail is dedicated to blissful relaxation.
From this sensational vantage point on the St. Croix coast you can soak up the summer sun and escape from the everyday. Throw open the patio doors and you’ll find a spacious terrace surrounding your iridescent pool. Refreshed by a constant stream of water it stretches tantalizingly out towards the ocean. Around its edge, you can unwind on a sun-kissed lounger or recline on a chaise longue, cocktail in hand. Venture slightly further and you’ll find a hidden patio, complete with a sunken hot tub.
Island Views expertly blends luxury and informality with grandeur and comfort. Throughout this serene property the outdoors and indoors flow together perfectly. At day break you can swim in the pool or exercise in your own fitness center. You can gather for a relaxed barbecue around the terrace’s teak table or enjoy fine dining in the stylish kitchen accompanied by epic views and soft breezes which drift through the French doors. At the heart of this house, the grand hall is an inviting combination of rich wood furnishings, comfortable sofas and panoramic views.
Take the elegant limestone staircase to the second floor and you’ll find two sumptuous, decadent bedrooms. Both are air conditioned to help ward off the extremes of St. Croix’s tropical heat and feature elegant en-suites dressed in marble and wood. From one, you can lie in your four-poster bed and gaze through the arched windows towards the shimmering sea and languid landscape. From the other, a shady balcony beckons for early morning coffee or evenings bathed in romantic sunsets.
Far from the hustle and bustle of the island’s vibrant towns you can immerse yourself in peace and tranquillity. But when the urge to explore grows strong simply take the road to Christiansted. Here you’ll find streets dotted with colonial houses and churches rubbing shoulders with boutiques and bars. Closer to home you can play tennis at the Chenay Bay Resort while at the other end of St. Croix you can encounter the rainforest at Frederiksted.

This was an excellent villa where every detail of living is covered and all possible thought was put into designing, building and running the villa! Excellent quality throught every piece of the villa and a joy to live in and cook in!\n\nDue to weather, air conditioning and bugs i do not think we got the full enjoyment from the windows which opened around every room as there was little breeze and a lot of humidity and bugs. This is unavoidable at the time of year but wanted to share.

The home was lovely. Lots of extra conveniences, extremely clean. The property manager had cheese and crackers and rum punch ready for us when we arrived. She was delightful. There were wonderful views from every room. We had ample beach towels and other than the staff, it is very private. The snorkeling around the home was great, more fish than Buck Island. I would recommend this home to anyone!
