Island Views - Villa with surrounding ocean views, pool & beaches nearby
Description from the manager
Island Views is the grand result of luxury island living and excellent design for serene relaxation, indoors and out. Waterfront on its own peninsula, Island Views offers 2 levels surrounded by inspiring ocean views, conveniently within a few minutes' walk to 3 beaches and the nearby Chenay Bay Resort.
The elegant great room features an eclectic blend of tropical rattan, sink-into sofas, West Indian and other antique pieces, accented by fine fabrics, original art, and an entire wall of custom bookcases. A desk with a computer and printer is opposite, for keeping in touch with those at home. The great room is fully air conditioned, but french doors on the ocean side were designed to be thrown open to St. Croix's refreshing trade winds; they lead out to the sun deck and heated swimming pool, which are just a few feet from the water's edge.
Off the east side are the gourmet kitchen and dining area - a chef's delight! A breakfast bar with stools separates the kitchen area from dining. The dining area is set with a large round table surrounded by French doors which open out to the pool deck on one side, and from the other sides, to an enticing oceanside patio with cushioned sitting areas and chaise lounges for cocktails, sunning and admiring the passing parade of yachts. A gas grill and large teak table await for alfresco dining on the patio. Along the east side room this area is a smaller patio to catch the breeze, and a sunken hot tub tucked into the garden. On the opposite side of the pool deck, near the pool's reclining Buddha and waterfall, is the air conditioned exercise room.
A limestone staircase gracefully ascends to Island Views' 2 bedroom en-suite bathroom suites above. A wide, covered balcony with cushioned chaises and benches connects the 2 suites, but both bedrooms are so well separated that one suite cannot be seen from the other.
Island Views' location – within easy, short walks to beaches and resort amenities – is a rare treat for guests. The villa is honored with a highly-rated distinction of five stars – a stay here will certainly be one that you will never forget!

On some nights there may be live entertainment at the Resort, and if you choose to stay at Island Views instead of joining the jump-up, you may hear some ambient sounds of music drifting across the bay.

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!
