And amazing Island property with views of both coasts.

  • 4 of 5

Nice location at the top of the hill. Expansive estate built solid enough to withstand hurricane Irma! 4 1/2 months later the island was still working on Internet, cable, satellite and power to all the homes. We had a technician repair Internet on our fifth day. We were hoping it would be working all week, but understood a unique situation after such a powerful storm.

The Villa has a nice spacious living and dining area that was comfortable for 10 of us. The kitchen could get a little crowded but was OK.

The pool was really large for a residential property and we had lots of fun in and around the pool several times.

The villa needs some maintenance on several things, including middle shower which doesn’t have water pressure working correctly. The master bath tub not functioning due to water valves to faucet handles not connected.

Also the pump for the pool only worked about half as much as it should.

The big sweeping doors leading to the outside patio and deck had locks to hold them open, but we’re difficult to handle and keep comfortably safe from slamming shut.

For some reason the right-side oven in the kitchen didn’t heat correctly for a frozen pizza.

One day we lost power to the entire Villa. Through the instructions to the property we found directions for turning on the generator. Got the generator running and about 10 minutes later realized it was having mechanical issues and smoking excessively! So we had to make sure and turn it off right away. Hopefully they will get a new generator in there soon for any future power outages.

One evening we lost power and as the sun set we were in the dark other than having candles available, thank you Donna for that!

We all excepted the reality of the post hurricane situation and expected the power would come back on later, and it did about three hours later. We worked around it and since the gas range and oven still worked as well as the gas grill, that night we had dinner by candlelight and everyone had a very special time!

All in all we had a great time and the experiences were unique to any we have ever experienced before. We will have special memories to reminisce about later.

The Villa, location, views and privacy were amazing!

Dream Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many houses on St Croix and this is by far our favorite. The location is perfect. Close to the best restaurants, grocery stores, beaches, snorkeling and all attractions in Christiansted. The house is extremely comfortable inside and out. Plenty of space for the 10 of us. Bedrooms had excellent air conditioning, outside areas didn't need it because of a wonderful breeze. The house is lovely and modern, kitchen is a gourmet's dream. Our favorite parts were the outdoor spaces......the pool was exceptional. Way larger than anywhere else we have stayed. We even had visits from the resident iguanas. The pool was on the lower level and there was also a huge brick patio on the upper level where the views were breathtaking. All in all, this was our best vacation EVER, and a big part of it was this beautiful home we shared. Donna and her son, Daniel Ford did an exceptional job making sure we were taken care of. With them taking care of us, we didn't have a care in the world. Can't thank them enough for making this trip of a lifetime possible for our family and friends.

Golden Blue St. Croix

  • 5 of 5

Overall, this property was excellent. While some areas show their age, it must be noted that the owners are in the process of renovating. The location and views are perfect. The weather was fantastic. Restaurants are excellent. Highly recommend Duggan's Reef (within 1/2 mile) and Angry Nate's in Christiansted. Like most Caribbean island, the infrastructure is old and poor. Roads are rough and building are deteriorating and not attractive (we visited St. Croix 40 years ago and little has changed). Be prepared to drive on the left side of the road. However, there is interesting history here and a visit is certainly worthwhile. If you enjoy gambling, don't bother with the one casino on St. Croix. Machines are poor and table games are few and lame. Donna from Ford Realty was very helpful (even met us at the airport and led us to the house).

Villa Golden Blue

  • 4 of 5

Great location with stunning views of both north and south carib seas. Amazing pool for a single family with nice landscaping even in the dry East End. A nice breeze and large doors allowed outdoor living on the inside. The north side covered deck was our favorite spot. Nice secluded location was perfect to relax and recharge.
