About Martin Massicott

I grew up in St. Croix and became a contractor and built Aqua Blue Villa and other homes on the island. I currently live on St. Croix and travel the mainland and other carribbean islands.

Martin Massicott purchased this villa in 2006

Why Martin Massicott chose East End

After living here for many years and visiting the eastern part of the island, my dream was to own property and build a beautiful villa. This area is unique with it's natural beauty of the carribbean sea and rolling hillsides.

What makes this villa unique

I chose this end of the island to build this villa because it is minutes from Point Udall which is the eastern most point in the U.S.A. There is a sundial known as the Millennium Monument built above Point Udall for the New Year's celebration in 2000. It marks the azimuth of the first U.S. sunrise of that year. The area has breath taking views and private beaches which are accessible to the public free of charge. All beaches in St. Croix are public. There is no admission for parking, sunbathing, or swimming.

Amazing views-and so private!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our February break. This house was terrific. It is much more spacious than the photos show. The pool and the pool deck are larger than they appear. The view of the ocean spans the entire deck-and one can hear the waves lapping along the shore.

Although I never heard a neighbor's voice, we could still walk easily to the beach, a pizza place, the Divi Resort, the Casino or a mini-gulf place. (Didn't try out the last 2). It is a 15-20 minute drive into Christiansted, so a little driving, but still worth the location.

The beds were comfortable and the AC in the bedrooms was decent and quiet.

The owners were kind enough to pick us up at the airport at 10:00 at night so we could follow them at night to the house!!! They also left us fruit and rum-as well as star fruit and coconuts later in the week.

We can be a fairly picky family, but we were very pleased with this location.

Be sure to get to Jack and Isaacs Beach and the beach at Sandy Point (only open weekends/winter months) if you like a secluded, picture perfect beach. So beautiful, but note there are no facilities.

LOVED St. Croix!

Massive house and great pool!! Wonderful view!

  • 4 of 5

Very large house and great pool! This house could easily accommodate a group of 6. Perfect for 3 couples. No bad rooms! There is also a guest house and an apartment if you had a larger group. It was just my husband and I so we didn't see either of those. There was everything we needed to enjoy our stay and cook great meals. The pool was one of the best we have ever had in our rental villas.

The only criticism I had - and its small - was that there is very little shade by the pool and the outdoor furniture could use some upgrades. Really would have liked a space outside to lounge and relax without being on one of the pool chairs, some of those were broken as well. Also the grounds could be cleaned up a bit.

All in all a perfect location for a quiet and relaxing trip. We always enjoy St. Croix!!

Wonderful, private villa- we highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved Aquablue Villa. We stayed for a week, and while the villa can easily accommodate 8+ guests, we were very happy to have it to ourselves. The main living area and kitchen are quite spacious as well as the bedrooms and master bath. All open up to the wonderful pool and gorgeous view. The photos are very accurate and the place was very clean. All windows had screens allowing us to keep the open all the time and not worry about mosquitos, especially overnight. All bedrooms and living room had A/C, but it was not even needed. We felt that the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glasses, utensils, bowls, pots, pans, toaster, coffee maker, blender, waffle iron. There were plenty of towels, beach coolers. Nothing was lacking. We did 1 major grocery run to stock up on food, drinks, snacks for the week and that was it. On the way to the villa, our hosts pointed out the grocery stores. We also received a lovely fruit basket with rum upon arrival, which made breakfast the first morning very easy.

Helene and Masicott are great hosts and met us at the airport and we followed them to the villa in our rental car about 30 minutes away. This was super helpful and after a day or so we got our bearings on getting around the island.

The villa is on the east side of the island in a very nice area and across the street from the beach. We felt very safe. Point Udall is a quick drive away as well as additional beaches near Green Cay. We ventured to the west side of the island a few times to check out Rainbow Beach, Butler Bay and the Botanic Gardens. The Gardens were great and we spent about 90 minutes there. One of the days we went to the beach at Butler Bay, we couldn't believe it, we were the only ones there!

All in all, we loved our time in St. Croix and at the villa. Big thank you to Helene and Masicott and we hope to return again. Christine and Alan

Beautiful and peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This house met every expectation we had. Our fifth trip to St. Croix and first time at Aqua Blue Villa. As previous people have stated, Helene and Martin were the best. They met us at the house to explain anything we might need, left us with their phone numbers and a beautiful fruit and rum basket. They assured us they were only a phone call away if we needed anything. And yes, they shared the wonderful coconuts and their water with us one afternoon. Martin opened them like a pro. The house was more than we needed, the master bed was very comfortable. The pool area and view were the big draw, awesome views day and night. We spent a good part of our time out there. And the stars at night are absolutely mesmerizing. Pool was clean and refreshing. Close to Divi Resort if you want to pop over there and get a great pizza like we always do. Loved the remote feature for the gate, no need to get in and out to open and close gate. This is a really nice place to stay. Thanks Helene and Martin!

Breathtaking Views/Top Notch Homeowner Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Villa was "beyond words." The homeowners Martin and Helene were extremely gracious, kind, and more than accommodating to our group. Upon our arrival, we were met with open arms by Helene at the airport. It felt as if we were meeting family the way we were welcomed. We were assisted in loading all of our luggage and then then led to the Villa. Once the doors to the home were opened we were all taken back by the absolute beauty. Martin and Helene's kindness was once again extended to us in the form of an enormous fruit basket and a bottle of Cruzan Rum. Pictures cannot explain the beauty of St. Croix that this Villa allows you to capture without even venturing from the property. The homeowners have gone out of their way to equip their property with all of the necessities and comforts of home. You name it...it was there. It is obvious that they truly welcome and take care of their guests by extending these comforts of home. We all felt as if we were their number 1 priority during our stay.

Early on in our stay, Martin and Helene telephoned and then stopped by to bring us delicious star fruit and coconuts which Martin skillfully opened. Helene then served ice cold coconut water to those of us by the pool. Wow! Martin and Helene are magnificent!

After renting from over a dozen VRBO and Home Away property owners they take the #1 ranking from us by far! We could not have been happier with our experience.

Several restaurants that we enjoyed during our stay included Duggans, Sandcastles on the Beach, The Deep End Bar and Grill, Tavern 1844 on the Boardwalk, Cheeseburgers in America's Paradise, and the Blue Water Restaurant. We also enjoyed the Seaside Market and Deli.

We highly recommend Jolly Gingers for their snorkeling adventure to Buck Island. We did a half day trip and also took their sunset cruise. Mike and Bridgette are wonderful people who are true professionals at what they do. We truly enjoyed these experiences. We also visited Point Udall which captured the true beauty of St. Croix. We spent a morning at Cramer's Park to enjoy the beach. Shopping in Christiansted was also fun. We recommend Sonya Ltd. for your hook designed bracelet. We were also able to take in the sites of Frederiksted and tried our luck at the Divi Casino.

This trip provided our group the opportunity to relax, rejuvenate, and share the many blessings that friendships offer. We are truly blessed by this opportunity and enriched by our experiences.
