"Matthew responsiveness is very excellent!!! I especially want to thank you for your generosity in the wake of the power outage that occurred during my stay on the island. I just vacationed for the first time in St Croix and months ago, started looking for accommodations. Unequivocally, I'd book this house again and will return! Spacious, well-appointed, this villa sits high on top of a cliff at The Reef Golf Resort, having views that are beyond dream-like. The breeze from the ocean is incomparable anytime of the day and tons of ceiling fans to cool the house down when temps soar too high!
Parking is close-by to the steps leading directly to house's front door. Two large bedrooms, both on different levels (great if you have kids) and both with its own full bathroom and views of the ocean. Laundry is in-house and on lower level; what a convenience!
On the upper level, kitchen/living/dining areas are open and perfect intimate family-dinners and entertaining; a lanai -- with BBQ grill and clothes-pen -- is steps-away from the kitchen.
When you want an alternative to the surf + sand, there's a huge pool for fellow guests that sits on a higher plateau, about 20 feet from this villa's back door. Beside the pool, that never seems to have more than a small handful of other vacationers, is a loggia and changing rooms.
Driving beyond the password-secure front gate (and you'll definitely want to rent a car to get around the island), paradise awaits ... Duggans Restaurant on the water has dinner only, but sunsets that are from the movies. TLC is an easy breakfast cafe located on near the Resort's property -- try there meat lovers breakfast sandwich! Further down the island some, is Point Udall -- breath-taking views of the oceans (and boasts the easternmost point of the USA). Of course, the island has tons to do and place to eat -- try Blue Water Restaurant (powered by solar panels) and Red Couch Cafe in town (organic breakfast and lunches).
Take my word for it ... if you're planning a trip to St Croix, book this beautiful villa, from Matthew."

"We just returned from a wonderful week at Lime Tree Villa. This was our first visit to St. Croix and it was very helpful that they arrange for someone to meet us at the airport and a Jeep rental with Centerline. Villa Madeleine is located on the East End of St. Croix and it was very quiet (especially in June). Our family was looking for a place to relax and enjoy each other - Lime Tree Villa provided! The location of this unit is perfect - being at the top and having Buck Island views. I think the location also provided for amazing breezes 24 hours a day. We spent almost our whole week at the pool - it was very private and pool floats and toys are provided! Our son LOVED having the separate bedroom area and of course his parents did too! I'm not sure the separate bedroom layout would work with small children, but with a teenager or another couple it truly is perfect. The bedrooms had AC which we ran at night. Villa Madeleine provides night security and we would see them walking around at night checking on things with a flashlight. This is a plus! Pack light - there is a washer and dryer and we spent most days in our swimsuits.
My husband and 15 year old son played golf at The Reef twice - they loved how quick it was to get to the course ad the friendliest of the staff. We also spent a day at the Buccaneer Resort - I enjoyed the beach while the boys golfed. We did our grocery shopping at Seaside Market and were able to prepare most of our meals at the villa. Yes the kitchen is small, but it is adequate! TLC restaurant at the Villa entrance has yummy homemade bread and great sandwiches and salads.
What a wonderful Island escape for our family! We loved our visit to St. Croix and our stay at Lime Tree."

"Our family had taken a trip to St. John 15 years ago when our children were teens and stayed at Maho Bay, an eco camping experience and it was wonderful. This time we returned with adult children and decided a house would be more appropriate, given the differences in personalities and expectations. Alan and Sarah's home was perfect for a quieter stay on the east end. We rented two cars to allow flexibility in sightseeing and meeting up later. The double porches were great at allowing a constant breeze throughout the house, the DIVI resort was a quick walk down the hill for those who wanted to just spend time on the beach and the kitchen allowed us to have half our meals at "home", thus saving us money for some meals at the great restaurants scattered throughout the island. The rental process was smooth, any small concerns we had while we were there were quickly handled via email and the caretaker. The rental cost was worth every penny and we would return to this house just for the sunrises and gentle, warm breezes. Thanks for sharing your home with strangers."

"Smuggler's Retreat was beyond our expectations! My family loved the house, the pool and especially the view. We explored the island and went snorkeling at Buck Island but our favorite was to return to Smugglers and spend time at the house. We ate most meals at the outside table on the front porch. You couldn't get a better view at any restaurant. We can't wait to go back again!"
