Christiansted villa description

If the crazy world is weighing you down and it’s time to escape to pure tranquility unwind at VILLA SERENITY where our guests are surrounded by a garden filled with tropical flowers and a panoramic view of the Caribbean. Our Villa is designed to give you a quiet carefree oasis where the warm sun will melt away the troubles of your “real world”.
VILLA SERENITY is situated in the gated community called the Reef. Each Villa at the Reef is situated on our landscaped rolling hills to insure maximum privacy for our guests. Start your morning with a warm cup of coffee on the deck overlooking our panoramic view of the Caribbean. If you need a little exercise take quiet swim in our hill side pool or a leisurely walk around our 9 hole golf course.
If your idea of relaxation is a round of golf two passes for unlimited free golf are given to our guests when they arrive. 27 holes a day of golf? No problem but don’t forget that St. Croix also offers some of the finest reef, wreck and pier diving in the Caribbean and excellent snorkeling is only minutes from the front door of your Villa.
If all that golf, diving and snorkeling sounds like too much work don’t forget the hammock on our white sand beach and make sure you bring that book you’ve always wanted to read.
Whether your dozing all day in the hammock or playing golf and checking out the water sports you don’t have to go far to find a good meal. Within walking distance of our villa is Good Spirits which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week offers dining in an open air casual atmosphere. Also at the beach you will find fine dining at Duggan’s Reef a St. Croix legend offering the finest in fresh seafood and steaks. VILLA SERENITY also offers a concierge service for a small fee which allows you to have your refrigerator filled with all the necessities so when you arrive you can fix a perfect meal in our full kitchen.
After all that sun, fun, and fine dining you will be ready for a long night’s rest. VILLA SERENITY’s king size beds offer the ultimate comfort of “Weston Heavenly” mattresses. At VILLA SERENITY we know that a good night’s sleep is critical to your vacation so we purchased these high quality mattresses.
The dictionary describes “SERENITY” as a feeling of being calm or peaceful. Our whole goal is to give you, our guest, a feeling calm, relaxed peace because we know this is your time away from the rigors of the rat race and you deserve a little piece of “SERENITY”.
