Bedrooms 3

Property type villa

Overview

About the property

3 BR / 3 BA villa with pool on the beach close to Yacht Club

Totally relax and unwind at lovely Holly’s Beach Folly.

Wake up to a gorgeous view of the Caribbean Sea; Buck Island; the dancing moored boats; smooth sandy beach, and the St. Croix Yacht Club. You are so close to the Caribbean that you can hear the waves on the shore, watch pelicans flying and diving, see the sandy beach beneath the turquoise sea, watch tarpon from the shore, and lazily swim or snorkel right off your beach. Nearby charters sail you out to Buck Island for snorkeling and a relaxing day at the beaches, or will take you deep-sea fishing, in-shore fishing, kayaking, or let you rent your own day-sailer.

Holly's Beach Folly is located on the beach, just west and adjacent to the St. Croix Yacht Club. This Villa features 3 master bedroom suites with 3 baths, a large free form pool and of course, the beautiful white sand beach just steps from the villa.

The open concept great room with a rock wall back-drop flows into the dining room with seating for up to 8 that is in front of the fully equiped kitchen. Don't want to cook? Then head out to a number of local restaurants that are close by - DIVI Starlight, Good Spirits BBQ, Ziggy's Quick Stop, Blue Water Terrace, Duggan's Reef for steaks and seafood or the Cultured Pelican for great Italian food.

The main floor continues with a master suite on the right containing a king bed/bathroom and a second bedroom/bathroom suite on the left featuring a view of the Contessa's Castle and containing two twin beds which can be combined for another king bed. The third master bedroom/bathroom suite is up a circular staircase, featuring a king bed, deep soaking tub with a garden view, and a nice sitting/patio deck facing the water with seating for much coveted quiet time, morning coffee, or a fine sunrise/sunset watch.

Holly's is elevated above the level of the beach so there are about 10 steps up to the house and so about 10 steps down to the beach.

About Sharon Early

We purchased our home in St. Croix in 2002 and started living the dream in May of 2005.

Intending to live the retired life after a 20 year career in the Nuclear Power industry, I gradually transitioned back to the working world. I started as a part-time assistant at Coldwell Banker St. Croix Realty and I have been a full time Agent since 2007 specializing in Property Management and Vacation Rentals. Whether you are looking for the perfect vacation in paradise or you're ready to make your move, I can assist you with fulfilling your dream.

Originally from Virginia, I graduated from Christopher Newport University with a degree in Fine Arts. When not working, I enjoy gardening and have been a volunteer at the St. George Botanical Gardens since arriving on island. Other interests are sculpting, snorkeling, photography, and the never-ending home renovation projects.

My energy and attention to detail enable me to do whatever is necessary to ensure the expectations of both the property owner and the vacationer are always exceeded.

Why Sharon Early chose Slob

I have been managing Holly's Beach Folly since 2012. Holly's is a lovely 2-story villa on the east end of the north shore next to the St. Croix Yacht Club and convenient to shopping, restaurants and great beaches. It is located on a small white sandy beach and the quaint town of Christiansted with its dining, shopping and attractions is less than 15 minutes away. Nine holes of golf at the The Reef course is a short drive away.

With it's seaside location, many amenities, and privacy, Holly's Beach Folly is the perfect vacation destination.

Private and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Very private and peaceful and nicely stocked home. Over all we had a great time at the house. I would however, recommend a few items be addressed. Beach is nice but has lots of stickers and seaweed that needs to be cleaned up. The steps down to the pool and beach needs to be trimmed back because several plants including a large cactus plant have over grown to the point of being very intrusive to the walk way. And I would make sure that the guest are aware of all of the steps in this home, inside and out. It is not for the handicap. The House needs a generator for when utilities go out like they did for over 7 hours one night of our stay. That being said, I would recommend this home and we are planning on coming back.

Simply FANTASTIC home & property!

  • 5 of 5

Holly's Beach Folly has everything you could need for your vacation stay on St. Croix- furnishings and amenities are simply wonderful! You couldn't ask for a better view, pool area or private beach out of a vacation home! Family of four (two teenagers), all of us felt like we were in our own home for the week- hated to leave this bit of paradise!

Everything we had hoped!

  • 5 of 5

Holly's Beach Folly was a great experience for my wife and I. It is directly next to the St. Croix Yacht Club. Two of the three master bedrooms are both air conditioned as well as their accompanying bathrooms. There are great views of Buck Island and a nice small beach to relax on and take a quick dip in the sea. I was able to take hikes from close by Point Udall to Goat's Hill and Jack and Isaacs's Bay and then walk back to the house. Close to the house are Ziggy's, Castaways, TLC Kitchen, and Blue Water Terrace (which were all as great in their own way). The kitchen in the house was fully stocked. The only person we saw the entire week was the nice gentleman who came to clean the pool. The entire experience was nice and relaxing. We had a nice bottle of prosecco in the fridge when we arrived. There was one minor issue during the week (non controllable) that Sharon was quick to address. The pool was refreshing as well. We did a day down to Frederiksted (The Pier, Rainbow beach, drove back through the Rain Forest) and one day sailing (shout out to Ididarum). We rented our car through Centerline- no issues. We are already plotting our return and will hopefully be able to stay at Holly's Beach Folly.

Wonderful property, the very best value I've experienced in the Caribean...over 30. + years of traveling there. Terrific house:,terrific common area with well stocked kitchen/appliances. Beautiful private beach area, perfect for small children yet great for swimmers. Pool area perfectly situated. 3 spacious rooms, each with their own bathrooms. One upstairs a gem with private balcony. Open to refreshing breezes...never felt too hot., Well situated to beaches and great hike near Udall point. Holly and Jim as hosts very knowledgable about island and always willing to help. Very reasonably priced.Well situated off main highway.

In summary, a real find. Most relaxing... Perfect getaway for families and adults alike!!

Highly recommended.,

Incredible getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all! Three private bedrooms (with full bathrooms inside each room) and a spacious open-plan living/dining area. The windows overlooking the sea and the high ceilings make you feel like you're outside. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable, relaxing and fun.

Wake up to gorgeous sunsets over the bay, walk down to your own private beach, swim in the pristine pool, have sundown drinks on the sprawling terrace listening to the gentle waves lapping the shore. It's the perfect spot to relax and enjoy - you don't have to ever leave the house! But if you do, Cramer's Park is a gorgeous 2 minute drive, and it's a quick ride into town.

Highly recommend for couples coming for a getaway, families coming with small children, or friends coming to relax and have fun!
