Instagram: virginislandvilla

Why St. Croix? We have traveled to many of the Caribbean Islands before deciding on our favorite of St. Croix (STX). We were drawn to this U.S.Territory for many reasons. (No passport needed for U. S. Citizens). STX is the largest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands and the least "touristy". Yet, one can take a short ride on a seaplane to the busy & popular island of St. Thomas any day of the week. From there, you can travel on a ferry boat from Red Hook Marina to lush and exclusive St. John. These sister islands are less than 40 miles away and visible to the naked eye from Villa Bliss on clear sky days and nights. All of the natural beauty is obvious at first glance at those turquoise and cobalt blue clear sparkling waters surrounding this very special spot on the planet. The clear, light blue skies by day and spectacular starry skies at night are quite mesmerizing, too. We have often said that there are "50 Shades Of Blue" visible from Villa Bliss. Rainbows and Shooting stars are common sightings In the islands. Paradise can be found on earth, if you know where to look. Look no further.

Villa Bliss is perfectly nestled on two generous and private acres. This gentle hillside location is just 175 feet above Teague Bay Beach on the popular and desirable East End of the island. From here, you will have a full view of the country's first Nationally Protected Marine Park & Reef of "Buck Island". Also, in the turquoise Caribbean waters you can watch sailboats bobbing at the St. Croix Yacht Club just to the East. You will enjoy privacy and the wide open spaces with only a few other villas nearby. One of the most talked about villas on St. Croix is the $15,000,000. "Contessa's Castle". This, too, is a very prominent part of the view from Villa Bliss. This great location is an easy 15 minute drive into Historic Christiansted Town. A crescent shaped neighborhood beach is within a very short walking distance, as are TWO great restaurants (TLC Bakery, Breads, Bagels and More & Duggan's Restaurant & Bar), a 9-hole golf course and tennis courts.

From the moment you arrive, you will notice the various outdoor spaces. Before you ever open the door to the interior, you will walk through a covered courtyard with island architecture style in the arched openings and custom tiled floors. The comfy outdoor furniture here is perfect for your first cup of morning coffee, a lazy afternoon nap or 5:00 cocktails and always in the shade.

"Oh, WOW!" are the words most often spoken by first-time guests of Villa Blss. The Spectacular Caribbean Views are truly breathtaking. These VIEWS are enjoyed In every room! An open concept design with the spacious and airy Living/Dining Interior will continue to impress. We have provided new, comfy and tasteful seating options. A quality sectional sofa, custom upholstered oversized ottoman, a rattan chair & matching ottoman, double chaise lounges and seating for 4 at the bistro height teak and glass dining table. Tropical living meets modern conveniences here.

A Master King Suite enjoys the fabulous eastern breezes and Yacht Club Sea views. A spacious Guest Room Suite has another king bed and private bathroom with more blue sea views. All of the appealing interior is a blend of West Indies, Modern and Island Styles.

A GORGEOUS Swimming Pool is purified with a salt water system. This system allows for much more gentle water with none of the irritants of harsh chlorine purifications. Lustrous Iridescent Cobalt Blue Glass Tile sparkles in the Sunlight and surrounds the swimming pool. The tile installation is very unique with the glass tile not only being all around the pool, but up & over the two outer edges for a "faux infinity edge" design. You will find the Pool Terrace with Natural Stone Coraline tile flooring. This is the place to live with abundant outdoor living spaces. Here you will find a comfy new outdoor sectional sofa with plenty of seating, a dining area with new table and chairs for 6, a separate raised bar and 4 barstools, gas grill, two double chaise loungers for sunning under endless days of sunshine and star gazing beneath a blanket of starry, starry skies. There is even a covered gazebo for escaping the sun. In the unlikely event that the pool water is not warm enough, a heater is available. Pool floats, WIFI, cable, laundry and fully appointed island style kitchen for the guests comfort. Words can not fully describe this Caribbean Gem!!

About Donna Ford

Being born in the foothills of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, we were accustomed to living in a tourist area. But, we wanted a more laid back and less "touristy" feel in our much anticipated island villa. That's why St. Croix is such a perfect fit. It has all the natural beauty and the most perfect weather on the planet, just like the sister islands of St. Thomas & St. John. Even though it is the largest of the United States Virgin Islands, it is lesser known and more of a value in vacation rentals and real estate sales. Donna Ford is our on island property manager and has lived and worked on St. Croix for most of her life. She is a great asset in learning all about this perfect spot on the planet. You can call her at Ford Real Estate (340)778-8782.

Donna Ford purchased this villa in 2014

Why Donna Ford chose East End

This 2 bedroom villa has been beautifully and tastefully updated and upgraded inside and out in 2014/2015. The view is impossible to duplicate, looking over The Reef Golf Course, A Beautiful National Park of 176 acre Buck Island & Reef, the Glistening White Ships of St. Croix Yacht Club, the Contessa's Castle on the peak of Mountaintop Eyrie oh and the wide angle view of Turquoise and deep blues of the Carribean Sea.

If you're looking for relaxing, comfortable & tasteful...it's all here and with that British West Indies Tropical flair. Inside and outside have been completely furnished with new pieces in every space. This little villa lives much bigger than its two King-sized bedrooms. There are more square feet Outdoors than Indoors....but, the Sunny Days and Starry Nights are the reason we all love the Caribbean. An Outdoor Grill for yummy meals is provided under a poolside gazebo. Both sunny and shady spaces exist here and will delight any traveler's needs. All of the above, PLUS the perfect location for the prevailing "East Winds" that swirl through the opened windows & doors. Not every villa is situated perfectly for the benefit of the cooling breezes in the islands. Not every villa offers all the benefits of Villa Bliss. Your treasured "Island Time" will be a cherished memory from your days and nights in Villa Bliss. This unique and lovely property will not disappoint, even the most discriminating visitor.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This sweet little place is really better than our dreams or expectations. We loved everything about it. "WOW!" really is the word you use most and frequently here. Classy touches in decor with not too cutesy beach themes that we have found in so many other vacation rentals. Very well designed and quality furnishings in both the interior and exterior living areas. Super nice touches like a huge walk-in shower, an outdoor shower and even beautiful dark blue glass tile sparkling all around the salt water pool. Terrific location close to so much, like golf, tennis courts, two restaurants serving delicious island dishes and homemade breads and of course the very quite Beach just a short walk away. But, THAT VIEW is what really made an impression! Nothing else will compare to Villa Bliss for the money. We just hope that it will be available for our next trip and every other trip to the Caribbean, You will not be disappointed.

We really can't express enough the best part about this vacation rental is the unsurpassed, breathtaking Caribbean Sea VIEW! We highly recommend leaving the windows open for the experience of the tropical trade winds swirling through the bedrooms and the entire Villa. The tropical birds can be heard singing right outside and the waves softly crashing on the shoreline just below are even further reasons to keep the villa opened when you're staying in and you'll want to stay in. Of course, we do offer A/C. Obviously, please keep the units OFF if the windows are open.

Pure Bliss!!

  • 5 of 5

Merriam-Webster defines "Bliss" as the the state of extreme happiness - Utter or Heavenly Joy. Villa Bliss is most appropriately named! My wife and I have traveled extensively. As we planned our 25th Wedding Anniversary, of course, we wanted to find the perfect place to celebrate. We wanted it all....amazing views of the beautiful blue Caribbean water, Luxury Resort-like comfort and amenities, but in a serene and private environment. We wanted to find Heavenly Joy. Villa Bliss exceeded all our expectations! From the moment you walk in the door, you just know you made the best vacation decision ever. Our word of the week was "WOW", which we used 50 times a day. Thanks for sharing your "slice of Heaven", we will be back!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The previous reviews are all spot on- you can't beat the views! We loved the privacy and serenity of the villa, and having a private pool was so nice! The outdoor spaces (sitting areas and hammock area, etc.,) were so beautiful! Wish we had more time there! The property manager was great to deal with, and the checkout process couldn't have been easier! Hopefully we'll make it back some day!

Luxury Private Villa Of Your Dreams

  • 5 of 5

From Carol M.:

Most amazing and memorable vacation Villa rental ever! We planned our trip to St. Croix, both as a vacation mixed with a trip to explore the area for real estate purchase opportunities, and we fell in LOVE with Villa Bliss. Most perfect view of Buck Island, the Ocean, the Breeze is so perfect, and the yacht club with the boats and sailing below, all viewed from the most gorgeous sparkled blue rimmed pool, with drinks in our hands, just letting the stress roll away, the day slip away, while floating on pool floats like "pool potatos". The privacy is just right, but you do not feel all alone up on the hill. Also, nearby there are several very good restaurants and bars, just minutes of driving if you want to grab a bite for dinner or a drink one evening. That is just on the East end! There is also nearby places for live music and charter tours to Green Cay & Buck Island. Villa Bliss is a great location! Close to everything, but not in the middle of all the hustle of it all. A wonderful place to unwind, relax, rejuvenate, and get back to centering yourself. We have always come back from vacation needing a vacation, but not this time. Actually, this is the first time ever! When we arrived, we swung by the grocery store 10 mins. Away and stocked up on sandwiches and grill meats. We literally enjoyed Villa Bliss so much, we hardly explored the island, we just couldn't leave. The Villa decorations in the whole entire home are both elegant, but beachy and homey, you will never want to leave. In fact, we found our perfect second home, and that is Villa Bliss! Now all we need to do is convince the owners to sell! He,he! No worries, we will be back and are already checking our schedules for the next open dates to return to Villa Bliss. Vicky, the owner, is prompt at replying and super friendly and helpful in making sure our stay was super amazing and unforgettable. You will not regret ever booking this Villa, only that you did not. Best kept secret!

Memories to Last a Lifetime at Villa Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a memorable stay at Villa Bliss! From the moment we got there we were blown away by the expansive views of the ocean and the layout of the house! We loved the open feel of the patio -- the pool was the perfect size for us to have daily "boat races" with our daughter with the toy boats, lounge out in the floaties that were provided, and soak in the amazing views before us! We loved the area by the grill, where we could sit and enjoy lunches at the bar. We had a wonderful night on the porch with Chef Aaron preparing an amazing 3-course personalized meal for us. Ending the nights watching the stars never got old! The layout of the house was perfect for us too! The beds and sleeping areas were very comfortable, the master bedroom bathroom with walk-in shower was very spacious and beautiful-- our daughter loved watching the glow-in-the dark jelly fishes on the wall! The kitchen had all the tools / plates / cups / utilities that we needed! And the open living room area where we could lounge out in when we wanted a break from the sun was very inviting. The hammock and swings were really relaxing and the new deck off the master was perfectly done to add a bonus area to the outside space. The close proximity to Duggan's for lobster, TLC for breakfast and fresh breads, the quiet beach, Ziggy's for a yummy lunch, and the yacht club where we caught a charter to Buck Island were all added bonuses to help make our trip even more memorable! Thank you so much for opening your home up to us! We hope to return soon!!
