About the property

Reef Watch 2 BR / 2 BA With Guest House And Pool

Very Cool, Very Turquoise – come to Reef Watch in St. Croix!

This immaculate, very private villa has an unobstructed, 180 degree view of the Caribbean and Buck Island. At night, the lights of St. Thomas twinkle while you recline by the pool to stargaze and enjoy the evening breezes. During the day enjoy your breakfast and lunch inside or out while you drink in the picturesque waters and reef, watching sailboats slip out to Buck Island, and kite boarders turn summersaults 30 feet in the air. The landscaping surrounds you with changing colors of island flowers. Delight in the private pool and mix up a pitcher of your favorite tropical refreshments in your fully furnished kitchen.

Relax and unwind in one of the pool loungers, a rocking chair on the gallery or chill out in the poolside hammock.

The one-story villa has a main house and guest house. Reef Watch was recently renovated and has new furnishings, including four flat-screen TVs and two DVRs, and is a comfortable, accessible home for all age groups.

All bedrooms have ocean views and air conditioning with 2-person tiled showers/full bathrooms. There is a private, outside shower for the nature lover. The master bedroom has a Tempurpedic king bed. The guest bedroom and guest house have optional king or twin bed arrangements. The guest house also has a day bed and an inflatable Aerobed for the kiddies.

Just bring your toothbrush and swimsuit! We want you to enjoy your stay and we believe we have anticipated your every need. Beach towels, hats, binoculars, beach chairs and mats, and coolers are waiting for you. The pool has plenty of chaise lounges and floaties. You can hook up your iPod or iPad/Pandora to the stereo in the pool house or main house and listen to your favorite tunes.

Reef Watch is a 10 minute drive to Christiansted, the Buccaneer and the Divi Casino. You are 5 minutes away from great restaurants, golf, tennis, beaches. Carambola Golf Course is 45 minutes away and well worth the drive.

Friends, Family or Just Us!

  • 5 of 5

It is rare to find a place that can adapt easily into a place to go for a family vacation, a friends trip, or a couples get-a-way.

Reef Watch is that place! In the main home there are two bedrooms each with their own private bathrooms that are on each end of the home, which ensures your privacy. The guest home is a wonderful space for with a sleeping area, bathroom and small kitchen. The private pool is an oasis of relaxation and you can gaze at the views of bluest water and Buck Island from the lounge chairs or from two outside dining area or the main inside dining area.

When we visited it was the two of us and it was a wonderful place relax and rejuvenate. We hope to come back sooner than later, deciding who to bring with is the only difficult question – maybe we will have to return several times!! We highly recommend Reef Watch.

We stayed at Reef Watch back in 2000 and 2001. Always a great location with a fabulous view! Returning again in 2017, we found the place renovated with many improvements. I highly recommend this property.

Beautiful house with breath taking views

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fabulous family vacation and stay at Reef Watch! There are lots of great areas within the home to hang out together or have your own peace and quiet. The views are spectacular while also overlooking Buck Island. All the amenities are top notch and everything you would ever need. Great stocked kitchen plus all your pool needs. The pool house is an extra bonus with a kitchen and bath and can also house an extra person. We really loved the location on the island as well. We give Reef Watch a 10!

We stayed here over Christmas last year (2014). It is both immaculate and informal. The pool house provides a lot of flexibility and privacy for a larger group or an extra couple. You'll need a car to get around, but it's convenient to lots of activities including sails to Buck Island. Or you can just watch the sailboats head over to the island each morning from the pool deck. Caretakers were a pleasure to deal with. Bioluminescent kayaking on Christmas Eve will be a lifetime memory for us, but simply staying at Reef Watch would have made the trip special.

Great Winter Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week here in St Croix. This home has all you need - one could easily spend their entire time here, just relaxing and enjoying the view and never venturing out. If you do, however, there are wonderful restaurants, great boat rides, and the tour of the sugar plantation is quite interesting. Be sure to view the stars at night from the pool chairs for an additional treat!

My favorite thing about Reef Watch?....watching the reef! Absolutely nothing beats sitting out on the porch deck first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee and looking right at beautiful Buck Island. Before you know it, it's lunchtime and you haven't moved too far from your chair. The house and pool house are outstanding...and the private setting melts away your City tensions. The owners have spot-on recommendations for restaurants and recreational activities...and they go out of their way to make their home comfortable for your stay. Enjoy exploring St. Croix...and, if you've never'll be surprised by its beauty and occasional rugged places. We like to hike, and especially enjoy the trek at nearby Jack and Isaac's Bays beaches. All in all, a good time for family or couples...but hard to tear yourself away from the view.
