Sun worshippers have a spacious deck on which to lounge by the fresh water swimming pool. The constant easterly breezes keep the villa cool and the ceiling fans in every room help to maintain the balmy, sultry feel that we crave. Optional air conditioning is available for those who want it.

Vacation comfort is a given, with the villa’s large living area, designed for enjoying time with friends and family in a warm, sunny tropical setting.

CONTACT US, send email and ask questions BEFORE you Request to Book. Although the calendar is automatically marked when a reservation is made through the Homeaway/VRBO system, we do mark the calendar ourselves. We do not want to disappoint anyone if we have inadvertently missed marking the calendar herein.

NOTE about the VILLA: Cruzan Sands Villa is comprised of two separate homes, each with very similar amenities, each on its own 1/2 acre space. We do rent both homes independently or together. Please refer to Homeaway listing number 3847936 if you are interested in the two bedroom Guest House.

PAYMENTS: Please note that we respond to our inquiries personally with our own email address, not with a rental company address. We use the Homeaway/VRBO online secure payment system. Call us by phone if you have any concerns about the authenticity of the response.

AIR CONDITIONING ESTIMATE: Guests are charged $1.00/kwhr used, a rate which is based on our historic costs. During the last year, our conservative guests who used AC set the thermostat on 85 degrees when no one was present in the home and on 78-80 degrees for sleeping. They spent $150 per suite on average, with a range of $114 to $479 for a week. The majority of our guests did not use AC at all. Our home has a sub-meter which measures usage for AC specifically. Electricity on island is considerably more expensive than on the mainland.

CANCELLATION: We do have a cancellation fee if a reservation is cancelled prior to 90 days before arrival. We offer no refunds within 90 days of arrival. We STRONGLY recommend “Cancel for Any Reason” insurance available from large, reputable insurance companies for anyone who has any reason to believe he may cancel at any time. Travelers can obtain such insurance; Owners cannot.

About Dana and Scott

Dana & Scott got the island fever in 2002, when they built their first vacation rental, Crystal Sands Villa in the Turks and Caicos Islands. They live in Providenciales now. They wanted to make sure they kept their roots in the USA, however, and St Croix is one of the most remarkable US Territories around, being one of the few islands that is completely surrounded by the Caribbean Sea!

Dana and Scott purchased this villa in 2012

Why Dana and Scott chose USVI/St. Croix

The beach at Estate Salt River is one of the most picturesque settings on earth! The unique culture of the US Virgin Islands is appealing and inviting!

What makes this villa unique

Cruzan Sands Villa is located in a beautiful National Park. Our villa is removed approximately one mile from the main roads.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our Guestbook: We had a wonderful time. Spent almost every moment in the sun and sand. Beached out and swam in the pool, too. Scarlett perfected her handstands and forward flips in the water, Gavin became a pro at swimming (with his swim vest) under the water and Cameron was our napping pro! Saw sting rays - big fish - little fish - surfers - fishermen and even a man on a horse swimming along! Beautiful house and view! We had a great family time! I think we created memories for a lifetime here. A lot of family bonding and those ocean winds seem to blow away any thoughts of home or OK routines. Happy to have spent a week at the Cruzan Sands Villa in St. Croix USVI!

Beautiful Property Inside & Out

  • 5 of 5

I am so grateful to have found this property to experience our first time in the Caribbean. From the very first time we contacted Dana (owner) we have been well taken care of. Dana made sure that we had directions, house instructions and restaurant recommendations. The property itself is exactly as described. The whole house decor is warm and inviting. The property is even more beautiful on the outside now that the plants and trees have matured. We had the whole beach to ourselves. Austin (our caretaker) checked on us several times to make sure we were taken care of. He even gave us tips on the bait to use to catch fish from the beach. We visited Christensted, Fredericksted, took a fishing charter, toured through Mahogany Road and Point Udall. The meals at restaurants were all very well prepared. If we ever come back to St. Croix, we will definitely book this property.

Wonderful Stay at Cruzan Sands!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 3 couples stay the last week of March at Cruzan Sands. We absolutely enjoyed the villa! It is set up perfectly with 3 bedrooms that have ensuite bathrooms as well as a powder room. The kitchen is well equipped, and the living area has comfy furniture to relax. The patio is spacious with a pool that was great to relax in after the day at the beach. The beach was awesome- we were practically the only people there each day- we felt like we had our own private beach! Austin was there to greet us, checked in throughout the week, & was readily available when we had an issue with water. His wife, Chef Jay, stocked the villa & cooked us two wonderful meals while we were there- highly recommend having her cook for you! The booking process was easy, & Dana was great for contacting with any questions we had. Overall, we had a fantastic vacation & would return again!

Great Couples Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Cruzan Sands Guest House was a great spot for our two couple vacation. The home was clean and comfortable. The gardens, walkway to the beach and private pool provided the perfect atmosphere for a relaxing tropical vacation. The beach is private with an area of sun and an area of shade for a long day on the sand. There is enough room for a short walk past a public access area and that area never had more than a couple visitors. Located in the middle of the north shore, we were easily able to visit Christiansted and Frederiksted during our stay. A special thanks to Austin for our afternoon treat of fresh coconuts.

Elegantly comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our group. It had everything you need plus more. The grounds are gorgeous and have your own private pool and access to the beach was lovely. The property manager greeted us upon arrival and was more than helpful. You definetly need a car to get around the island. This island is a beautiful spot. Point Udall is very cool and gem to be discovered is ISAACS BAY ...you must go!!
