Villa Dawn, a luxurious St. Croix villa, is located on the lush north shore of St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands, the most beautiful part of the island. This private, secluded and tropically landscaped, 1.3 acre, St. Croix estate includes a four bedroom, three bath vacation rental with breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and its stunning sunsets. It is only steps away from the white sands of Cane Bay Beach and four waterfront restaurant/Bar and Grills. In fact, it is the closest villa to gorgeous Cane Bay Beach.

The views from inside this extraordinary, St. Croix, vacation home, from the front covered veranda and from the pool deck are spectacular! The large pool has four stools in the water where you can sit and enjoy the view and the fountain that flows into the pool. Villa Dawn has central air conditioning and is outfitted with tropical designer furnishings and every conceivable amenity. There is world-class SCUBA diving at the Cane Bay 'Wall' right in front of Villa Dawn, many nearby attractions and a championship golf course is just a ten minute drive from this dazzling vacation home. Our caretaker of the property lives nearby and is available 24/7 for any and all of your needs. If you are looking for a special vacation rental with that extra touch of luxury in a stunning location that can't be beat, then Villa Dawn is definitely your choice!

Villa Dawn vacation rental is literally just steps from the beach. While some villas advertise 'walking distance to the beach,' they are truly a 'hike to the beach.' Not at Villa Dawn! This exclusive property goes all the way down to the coast road. On the other side of the road is the fabulous Cane Bay Beach! Villa Dawn has unobstructed views of Cane Bay Beach, the Caribbean Sea, and the surrounding lush mountains from the large front covered veranda as well as from most of the 1.3 acres that make up this St. Croix, USVI island paradise. Recline in the hammock on the large front veranda of this comfortable vacation home and listen to the soothing sounds of the Caribbean waves while gentle island breezes caress you. Go swimming in the pool... it's spectacular. Enjoy the lighted fountain with a waterfall that overflows into the pool. Bask under the St. Croix sun around the pool on the 1500 square foot deck or sit on one of the four in-water stools while you watch the stunning sunsets over the Caribbean Sea... watching for the elusive 'green flash.' Yes... you are in paradise!

Three of the four bedrooms and two of the three bathrooms are located on the upper level of this centrally air conditioned, fully equipped, designer decorated villa. The upper level's large gourmet kitchen and comfortable living room both have magnificent views of the Caribbean Sea from the villa's 'wall of windows.' The air-conditioned and private lower level of Villa Dawn is fully-equipped with one bedroom, a living room, a kitchen, and a bath. The lower level also has a 'wall of windows' that offer spectacular views from all of the rooms. Both levels are equipped with TV, VCR, and complete AM/FM/CD/Cassette stereo systems. No amenities have been forgotten at this beautiful retreat. Duty free shopping and additional fine dining is just a 20 minute drive to either Frederiksted or Christiansted. For your privacy, we will only reserve Villa Dawn to one group at a time. We are available 24/7 for any and all of your needs. Click on our website link for more details.

About Kent Vreeland

My wife and I love to travel! We work very hard...just so we can spend all of our money on traveling! We have been all over the world, but what is nearest and dearest to our hearts are tropical destinations. Of all the places we have traveled together, St. Croix was the place that we truly fell in love with. We love to swim, snorkel, SCUBA dive (St. Croix has some of the best diving anywhere), sail, eat, drink, shop, eat and drink some more...St. Croix has it all!

Kent Vreeland purchased this villa in 1999

Why Kent Vreeland chose USVI/St. Croix

We visited St. Croix for the first time in 1998. We had already been to many of the Caribbean Islands, as well as many other tropical destinations, so we thought we would give St. Croix a try. We invited my parents to come with us and rented a villa not too far from where Villa Dawn is located. One day during this fateful trip, after my Dad and I probably had one too many Rum drinks, I sat looking out at the view and dreamed of one day owning a home of my own on St. Croix. I told my wife that I had been calculating....if we used all of our savings we just might be able to buy a house on St. Croix and rent it enough to pay the bills. She said, 'That's a nice idea but I don't think so!' The next morning, as I was sitting out on the deck nursing a terrible headache, she came over and said, 'You know, I've been thinking, you're probably right, we could do it' to which I replied 'Do what?' I didn't remember the conversation at all! Several months later we were on a Caribbean Cruise with Dawn's Mom and St. Croix was one of the Ports of Call. We decided to look at some real estate...just for the fun of it. By noon that day we found Villa Dawn, a mere shadow of what it is today, and put in an offer. The next day we were docked on St. Thomas. We called the real estate agent on St. Croix from a phone on the beach. 'Did they accept our offer?' we asked. YES! was the reply! OH...MY...GOSH! WHAT DID WE DO! The rest is history...we now own three vacation rental properites on St. Croix!

What makes this villa unique

Villa Dawn is located in one of the most beautiful areas of St. Croix. The views are as good as any I have seen in the world! It is within a short walk of Cane Bay Beach, 4 waterfront restaurants, horseback riding, kayak rentals, SCUBA diving and snorkeling. It is an awesome place for a couple wanting some privacy and romance, as well as a great place for multiple couples or a family vacation. Everyone just loves the place!

Amazing vacation at Villa Dawn

  • 5 of 5

We had not had a family vacation in over two years and Villa Dawn was the perfect Paradise for the seven of us this week. We had an amazing, wonderful time and felt so at home. Kent was fantastic in responding to all our questions before we got here. Pictures don't do this beautiful home and location justice! We have found a place we would love to come back to again and again.

Thank you,

The Wolfpack --- Lisa, John Lobo and family

Amazing views and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for my entire family to come for a once in a lifetime experience! The views from the deck and pool area are to die for. There was nothing like being able to take a 5 minute walk down the driveway and across the street to swim and snorkel to my hearts content. Bring your own gear and it is free or if you don't have any the dive shop is directly across the street and are very reasonably priced. Kent was very helpful with every question or concern we had! Only recommendation is to put up some kind of blinds in kitchen area because when sun is setting ( which is gorgeous) It gets pretty hot in the kitchen. That is not a complaint just a recommendation because being able to look out and see the mountains beyond the sea was breathtaking!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Dawn! It is a little piece of paradise! We have thought about putting some sun diffusing shades outside, attached to the covered deck, but have been concerned about the breezes damaging them if left open and unattended. And, as you mention, we don't want to do anything to deter from the incredible view! We hope you will choose to come back to St. Croix some time and will choose to stay at Villa Dawn again!

Memories were made !

  • 5 of 5

Villa was everything as advertised. The home was clean, well appointed, comfortable, spacious and of course the pool with the super views of the ocean. We enjoyed a very relaxing time, grilled out and watched the sunsets while sitting in the pool. It is a place that lends itself to you "kickin' back" and not doing a dam thing. We enjoyed ourselves so much, that we have put it on our list to come back next year !

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Dawn! We have tried to show the villa in our photos just like it is...if anything, it's better than our photos can show! Many of our reservations throughout the year are from "repeat" guests. We look forward to hearing from you again!

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

Six adults stayed at this wonderful place last week. The home has everything you can possible need. The owners also recommend places to shop for groceries, places to eat, and places you must see. They are very responsive should you have any questions. The views are breathtaking. You can walk to the beach, although a bit of a walk. I can't think of any reason why someone wouldn't stay here if they are going to St. Croix.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Dawn! The walk from the door of the villa to the beginning of the beach is just 380 yards, with most of that going down our driveway and past our property. We wind up taking a car down to the beach most of the time because we want a cooler, snorkel gear, beach chairs and an umbrella with us...all of which we have at the villa! :) Now, depending how much you have to drink at at one of the beach bars, the walk back to the villa can become more interesting! LOL! ;) We hope that you will choose to visit Villa Dawn and St. Croix again sometime! It was a pleasure having you as our guests!

Awesome place. Furnished with everything to make your stay comfortable. Beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

It is a nice place to go on vacation. You are in the middle of the island so it is easy to get to both towns on each end of the island. Their was a grill which was nice for eating dinner in some evenings. It would be a wonderful place to take your family and have quality time in the pool as well as beautiful excursions close by. The beach was close and then their were many other beaches close to go to. I would recommend it for a relaxing vacation for a family. Great place to make memories with a beautiful view. The owners were very professional and very nice. Very Friendly and they let you know if you needed anything you could call them and they would do their best to get the issue resolved immediately.
