East End villa description
The Toucan House at Villa Madeleine is nestled in the beautiful, tropical East End of the Island of St. Croix. The Villa is warm and welcoming and features Caribbean décor for a true island experience. The Villa features an open air concept with french doors that lead directly out to the pool so that guests can enjoy warm tropical breezes with a tantalizing Caribbean sea view.
The homeowners and guests have found that the best way to start the day is a plunge in the private pool, which can be accessed from both bedrooms. Each bedroom is specially appointed with West Indian style furniture that maintains the character of the island. The bedrooms are private from each other because they are located in adjoining buildings, but both have direct access to the lounge chairs, outdoor dining area and pool. Guests enjoy all the amenities of home, but maid service is available for an extra, nominal fee.
Guests can experience many of the wonderful activities that St. Croix has to offer. The Villa is located a short 15 minute drive from historic Christiansted, where one can charter a boat ride for a trip to Buck Island and neighboring dive and snorkel spots, or experience fine dining in one of the local restaurants. Sports and nature enthusiasts can hike in the rain forest, play tennis on the court located on the property, visit the tide pools on the North Shore of the Island, or rent a bike for a beautiful ride along the island shores. The island also offers a seaside village complete with charming shopping.
There are many pristine, beautiful beaches around the Villa that offer beach lovers sensational turquoise ocean views and soft, warm sand. One of the best beaches is only a short 5 minute walk from the Villa.
The Toucan House is perfectly situated between a nine hole golf course and the exclusive St. Croix Yacht Club, as well as the Divi Resort & Casino. Just a short drive down the hill is an international deli providing gourmet food and spirits.
St. Croix is a beautiful, peaceful and serene island with great weather and phenomenal outdoor activities, and the people and culture are sure to impress everyone who visits. The close proximity to the Mainland and Puerto Rico makes it very convenient for those traveling to this U.S. Territory.
The Toucan House owners and other guests have discovered many splendors and delights on St. Croix. Come down and see for yourself!

Well, full disclosure here. I am friends with the owners and write the web-page for them. I had a chance to come down while they were here (I'm writing this from the pool). What a great place! When you park and walk in, it is a classic Caribbean tropical landscaping along the sidewalk. The house is very private and in a gated-community. Walking into the living room, you are greeted by a tall room, with a wood-framed cathedral ceiling. All the comforts of home are here. There are very nicely decorated rooms and even a full kitchen stocked with all the dishware and utensils. The master bedroom is off the living room and opens onto the beautiful swimming pool. The floors are made from the typical Carribean big red tiles, so no worries about walking from the pool back inside while you are wet. The second bedroom is also off of the pool deck and you can only get to it from outside, so it is very private as well. The Toucan House is set up perfectly for two couples. If there are more guests, as there are on my stay, I am sleeping on the sofa-bed in the living room. It is comfortable with none of the ususal metal bars sticking through the matress, it feels just like a bed. The full kitchen has a coffee maker and grinder, an oven/range, and full refrigerator, so we've been cooking just like at home. There's no shortage of some of the coolest beachside bars I've been to either. Villa Madeline is on the Eastern end of the island, and it's climate reminds me of Brazil, without all of the rain. Enjoy your stay, I didn't want to leave! I didn't even think about work while we were there...

My wife and I had a fantastic time in St. Croix and at Toucan House in June. The island was quiet this time of year, but we never ran out of things to do, and the Toucan House really made us feel like we were on vacation. The private pool was a great way to enjoy those lazy vacation days when we didn't feel like venturing out. The house was very nicely decorated, very clean, and comfortable enough that we never felt like we had to leave be on vacation. The location was ideal for a quiet getaway - the East End is quiet in general, though there is plenty to do in the area immediately surrounding the house. We enjoyed a bunch of the quiet beaches near the house, scuba diving on the north shore, snorkeling on Buck Island, 4-wheeling near the rain forest, as well as the Divi Resort, which is close enough to walk to if you like gambling. Christiansted is only an easy 15 minute drive west, and almost everything on the island is nearby Christiansted. I don't think we had a single bad meal while on island - all the food was delicious, and generally fairly priced. We had that rare combination of near-constant rainy weather on our trip, and yet we still enjoyed ourselves enough that we're looking forward to getting back to explore more of St Croix and relax at the Toucan House. It's just a great place to relax with no shortage of entertainment. -Matt

About: We live in Maryland, but travel quite a bit. Our favorite destinations have always been islands, especially the Caribbean. Our first visit to St. Croix was a business trip over Christmas and New Years in 2004. We had certainly not come to the island to buy property, but fell in love with the beautiful views, the sea, and the wonderful people. We decided that we wanted to make this island our second home, so the third day we were there, we looked at 3 properties. The Toucan House was the third one we saw, and we made an offer to buy it on the spot. We hope you love it as much as we do.
