Beautiful and private villa

  • 5 of 5

It's great that someone meets you at the airport, makes for an easy transition to island life and driving on the left. Everything was great and the owner or his manager on island were very responsive to any questions. Villa was very clean compared to most places we have stayed.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our vacation at this beautiful villa! Owner emailed restaurant reviews and places to visit before we arrived, which was great!

The beds in both bedrooms were very comfortable and all four of us slept well.

The view from the pool area is amazing and the sounds of nature and ocean were lovely.

The owner was very responsive to an issue in the villa and repaired it immediately. We definitely recommend this villa.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the villa. Sorry the oven decided to die on your first day at the villa. I hope the new stove was much better. Please keep us in mind for your next visit. Thanks, Richard and Marie

Being our first visit to St. Croix we were somewhat anxious. The choice of where we stay played a major role in how our overall vacation was going to be.

We made a great choice with this home! We continue to talk as much about the home as we do the island.

First of all, the owners know the information you need and what you may ask. They will send you a guide to enjoying the home and the island and they are spot on. From beach suggestions to restaurant selections, we were never disappointed.

The home itself is situated in one of the nicest communities we saw. wonderful views, great breezes and all the amenities you need. The layout was perfect for our family of three. Our daughter spent her college spring break with us and the second bedroom seems almost detached from the main part of the home so this made for greater privacy for both of us. Both bedrooms were large and great bath/showers. Nicely decorated. The master bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept on. Between the clear air and the mattress, we slept better and woke more refreshed. (I reluctant to spend so much time on sleep but it was incredible)

Having a private pool was also great. very clean and just the right size for a quick dip and the lounge furniture made it hard to leave sometimes. Breakfast by the pool was a daily occurrence.(there is a little restaurant at the bottom of the driveway that has great breads and breakfast items....don't wait too long in your stay to discover it. get take out and enjoy the patio)

The kitchen was good like most people have mentioned but I don't recall any mention of the Margaretaville mixer available for frozen drinks! I've never been able to make the perfect frozen drink until now. There is a complementary bottle of rum on arrival. Nice touch!

Having someone meet you at the airport and helping you get to the home and settled in is also a nice feature. However, not knowing where we were going and how far we would be from "town" and groceries, we made the recommended grocery stop on the way and rushed, we purchased too much--things we didn't need.

The owners recommend Skyline rent a car. They were there to meet us at the airport and made it easy. However, the vehicle we got was not the best. We wanted a jeep we could take the top off. Recommend a better vehicle-4 door especially if more than 2. also, we had a flat and they don't help-actually charged us for it. The roads are very rough so get something comfortable and do explore!

Amazing trip

  • 5 of 5

This has been one amazing trip! i sure am glad we stumbled across this villa! First of all, we were met at the airport by Frank. Great guy! He then showed us where the grocery store is and a small market to pick up whatever we needed before heading to the house. I assumed we had a long drive ahead, but the villa is only about 10 minutes from there. This island is VERY easy to drive on compared to our previous trip to St. John. Also, Frank had filled jugs of drinking water for us. Most of the locals drink bottled water. It is only 60 cents to fill the gallon.

Once at the villa, I was so impressed! The private pool is amazing! We spent a day or two just hanging out there! The house is stocked with EVERYTHING. There is even a Wii that we played while it rained for an hour or so. The washer and dryer is also nice to have. The kitchen also has everything you will need. A nice touch was having the Garmin! We used that thing like crazy to find our way around. We ran into a man doing landscaping, Kenny. I asked him where to get a fresh coconut because they are everywhere of course! About a half an hour later, he came to the door with 6 coconuts for fresh coconut water and one to eat. The people here are so wonderful. I can see why people move down to this island. Everyone says hi. EVERYONE. It is a great culture.

The island itself is amazing. Beaches that are a must see are Buck Island (of course) and sandy point, and isaccs bay. We sailed to Buck Island with Lewwellyn (sp?). I HIGGHHHHLY recommend him! Great man. We had great meals as well. Zion Modern Kitchen is downtown Christiansted and has amazing food made from fresh local ingredients. You Are Here has good pizza. And American Cheeseburger in Paradise has great food too for something more casual. The service was wonderful no matter where we went

There are many places to choose from when looking to go on vacation. Honestly, the hospitality of the owners here, I would definitely stay here and recommend it to everyone I know. .

Fantastic and fun!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent an amazing week at Bella Villa .... an absolute gem! We spent time in the pool every day, enjoyed Duggan's restaurant and Blue Water Terrace multiple times (ask for brown sugar cornbread at Blue Water!), and overall just enjoyed ourselves to the fullest.

The Villa was clean, private and had every amenity we needed - or wanted. St Croix and Bella VIlla are a gem - definitely recommend it and we hope to return!

About Jackie Bunn

Jackie is the lucky owner of Bella Villa which she acquired after selling her previous popular St Croix vacation rental, Sugar Bay House owned since 1987. Jackie's primary goal is to insure that her guests have a wonderful vacation, in traditional West Indian comfort, on the island she loves so much. She aspires to offer the amenities and comfort that she herself would expect and wants her guests to return year after year!

Jackie Bunn purchased this villa in 2017

Why Jackie Bunn chose Slob

This wonderful villa in the secure gated community of Villa Madeleine located on the popular East End of St Croix is a magical place to get away from it all and relax. The view and refreshing tropical breeze from your private pool and courtyard make for a relaxing vacation. All of the island's activities are very close. You are minutes away from many of the island's best beaches for snorkeling, sunbathing, kayaking and sailing to name a few. The historic town of Christiansted is a short drive for some of the islands best shopping and restaurants.

What makes this villa unique

This particular Villa Madeleine villa has perhaps one of the best views within the community. The villa has a beautiful direct view of the ocean beyond the private pool from each room as well as the courtyard. Also given the location within the community (on the upper rows) your privacy on the courtyard is assured. We have also recently installed a cell signal booster insuring "4 bar" cell availability both in the villa as well as poolside. Each room is air conditioned.
