"We had the most amazing 8 day vacation ever! We couldn't have picked a better house or island to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary! The house is spacious, beautiful & has everything you could need. The views from the house are stunning & Lorraine was absolutely a pleasure to work with. We visited St. Croix 3 years ago on a cruise & we said then we would come back to St. Croix. Of all the islands we have been to there was just something special about St. Croix that we fell in love with. We really enjoyed meeting the locals & learning all about the beautiful island of St. Croix. Cheeseburgers just down the road from the house is great & Brenda there was fabulous! We went there several times & Brenda had to love on us our last night there. We almost cried when we had to tell her goodbye!!:-( Ziggy's just down from the house was nice. Good little bar called Libation Station, good/quick food & nice little convenience store but beware they have a 10.00 min. for cards and we were rudely told that on our 5th trip there and about 200.00 in total purchases later! Spratnets Bar on the West End, nice little beachside dive where Calvin the owner & Rachel the bartender are just fantastic!! Some points of interest we recommend: Point Udall (especially to see the sunrise), Off-roading on the West End (4 wheel drive needed), Cruzan Rum & Captain Morgan Distillery Tours, Rainbow Beach & Rhythms there (best lime n de coconut ever), Ft. Christian Brew Pub & Angry Nate’s on the Boardwalk in Christiansted, Jazz in the Park on the last Friday of the month, definitely find one of the many dirt paths on the side of the road and take it down to your own private beach (all of the beaches in St. Croix are public access), Hike to the Tide Pools (however let me give a disclaimer on this one the hike is about 6 miles round trip and very strenuous through the thickness of the rainforest. We are avid hikers & hike the Smoky Mountains a lot & we both agree it was the most difficult & strenuous hike we have ever done!!), Cramer’s Park just down the road from the house for a nice beachside picnic & to watch the sunset. Of course there were a ton of things we didn’t get to see or do like Buck Island, Sandy Pointe or the Beer Drinking Pigs so we will definitely be back to Villa Leja! We were so sad to leave. I definitely left a piece of my heart on St. Croix & Lorraine truly has a piece of paradise in Villa Leja! One day we hope to be lucky enough to own a piece of paradise on St. Croix!"Guest: Dave Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: October 8, 2014View listing
"The listing description and photos reflected the property which is conveniently located on the north shore close to Christiansted. Beach, pool and snorkeling access are on the property. The unit was clean, well equipped and comfortable. The owner was very helpful, answering questions and providing detailed directions from the airport, restaurant and activities suggestions. The on-site manager was very helpful, available and provided welcoming supplies. Recommend a rental car for easy access to town and for touring the island."Guest: Sandy Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 19, 2014View listing
"My husband and I spent a week at Blue Horizon in Cotton Valley on St. Croix in May 2014. We picked this house rental out of several for the view and affordable price and were not disappointed! The view was breathtaking and the colors of the water changed every day depending on the time of day and weather. There was a constant breeze so we left the windows open instead of running the AC. We spent a lot of time on the pool deck and in the pool and hammock. We know there were houses close-by but you could not tell due to foliage or they were on other hillsides. The house itself was nice and in great shape. It is not luxurious but the high ceilings and tons of windows to look out at the awesome view made us feel like we were living in luxury! Landscaping all around the house was tropical and very pretty. The owner was very responsive to emails and phone calls asking questions and getting deposits/payments made via Paypal. The very helpful Property Manager, Lou, met us at the airport and we followed him through The Buccaneer Resort and then to the house. The house is not far from The Buccaneer Resort (their Mermaid Beach was our favorite on the island) had the best snorkeling, nicest water, and cleanest beach. As others have mentioned, it is great that there are beach towels, beach chairs, music, movies, and a ton of other things other people have left so look around before going shopping. We thought Food Fair was the best grocery store, but if you need something quick, Ziggy's Island Market is close-by on 82. Ziggy's also sells cooked food and fuel. Downtown was about 15 minutes away and we thought the restaurant You Are Here had excellent pizza and Fort Christan Brew Pub had the best blackened mahi sandwich. I would recommend downloading Navigon before your trip so you can easily get around the island. Staying at this hillside rental was definitely the best choice we could make for a perfect vacation! We look forward to returning there someday."Guest: Carol C. Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 22, 2014View listing
"The one-bedroom was extremely clean, there were plenty of kitchen supplies, it is centrally located on the island, and the patio overlooked the ocean. There is a pool/hot tub - but we were so enamored with exploring the numerous beaches, we never used it! Our favorites on the island included ocean kayaking from the Tamarind Resort (1/2 day rental is $30 for single, $40 for double kayak) - we were able to kayak out to a deserted island and along several remote beaches. We also paddleboarded off of Rainbow Beach and hiked to the tide pools. We really enjoyed going during low season, because we had the majority of the beaches all to ourselves!"Guest: Rykaard Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 17, 2014View listing
