About Michael Luce
My grandparents moved to St. Croix in 1965. Five years later, I was baptized on the island as an infant. The property has remained in the family all these years, and our connection to it is deeply personal. It's our sincere wish that anyone staying at Grapetree Escape also feel that sense of belonging...and a desire to come back, time-and-time-again!

An absolutely amazing vacation
When we first walked into the house we were breathless.The property is gorgeous. The house is open, bright and immaculate. The views of Grapetree Bay from the house are breathtaking. The view is so stunning that it is difficult to describe. You must experience this setting yourself. Michael has made sure that the house is stocked with everything you might need. The gourmet kitchen is stocked with any utensil you could want. I tried to spend most of our week at the house lounging in the pool. The yard is landscaped in a manner that makes you believe you are on your own private oasis. We'll definitely be back!
Don, thank you so much. We're looking forward to your return!
Gorgeous house and views. Kitchen was well stocked with all the cooking equipment you could need.
Owner and manager are very accommodating, gracious and hospitable. They are in contact all through the reservation, arrival and departure to ensure your stay is enjoyable.
Thanks for choosing our house for your visit, Dana!
Fabulous! Homey yet elegant!
This is our 4th time on St. Croix and of all the places we've stayed this is the best location yet. It rained elsewhere on the island this week but only one morning here. The pool, deck, huge private bedrooms and lovely common area suited us to a tee. And only 5 minutes from Isaac Bay, the best beach on the planet!! Michael was the most responsive and kind owner of all the houses we've rented and we appreciate that. We don't want to leave!!😥
We don't want you to leave, either! But we hope to have you back soon, Melinda. Thank you so much, for your thoughtful comments.
Loved this house!
If you are looking for a peaceful, secluded, and immaculate vacation home with amazing ocean views, then look no further! We have stayed at many villas throughout the Caribbean, and Grapetree Escape is one of our favorites. The house design is well planned, nice open-concept, yet the bedrooms are very private with separate entrances and bathrooms. Better than the pictures depict. Although it was just two of us, this home is perfect for three couples or a large family – plenty of space. Our favorite features included the bump out on the deck for breakfast and late day cocktails/dinner, the extensive wrap around deck, and the covered outdoor patio by the pool - perfect mix of shade and sun throughout the day. The pool was the best - morning and evening swims between daily excursions. Gourmet kitchen was also a big plus since we love to cook. A few restaurants are within a quick car ride (highly recommend Cheese Burgers in America’s Paradise – we had Mahi & Snapper sandwiches and drank Pain Killers). Christenstead is a 15 minute drive and has great restaurants; we had an amazing dinner at 40 Strand Eatery. Lots of great beaches within a few miles, Knights Bay is a 10-15 minute walk from the villa and we had the entire beach to ourselves – nice snorkeling around the small pier. Must do: Point Udall (very close, 10 minutes by car): hike down to Issac/Jack Bays – unbelievable beaches with little or no people. Many thanks to owner Michael and villa manager Pam, both extremely helpful and hospitable. I have never had such a positive experience with renting a vacation home – top notch service. Last but not least: Mommacat was our pet away from home, always looked forward to her daily visits, we really miss her!! You will not be disappointed with Grapetree Escape Villa, a very special place!
Thank you, Beth and Paul. We're humbled by your generous comments. And we'll be happy to welcome you back!
A Beautiful Escape!
This was my second stay at Grapetree Escape, and I didn't realize how much I missed it, until I settled in again. All I did was kick back, enjoyed that spectacular view, and found myself hypnotized by the sound of the surf, a sound I crave. Yes, it's sometimes nice to head into town (or closer) for an occasional lunch or dinner out, but I'm partial to “staying home," and taking in the nature of the east end. This property makes that effortless. Highly recommended for travelers seeking escape from the so-called “real world”. The name Grapetree Escape is most appropriate! I had the best time, and hope to come back soon. Thank you so much!
It's a pleasure to have welcomed you back, and we look forward to your next visit, as soon as you can return!
Comfort and Security
Grapetree Escape is a gem! The property is gated and thus very secure. Located in a quiet neighborhood, the only sound is of the waves. ( No roosters !! ) The kitchen is up to date and very well equipped. There is a generator and all systems are state of the art. The tap water is drinkable. The owner is responsive and helpful. Pam, the rental agent, escorts one to and from the airport and is warm and welcoming. The resident cat, MommaCat, patrols the property and appears at mealtime. We loved our stay at Grapetree Escape and hope to return!
Nancy, we enjoyed having you and Bill as guests, and look forward to welcoming you back for "the next adventure!"
Grapetree Escape is situated on St. Croix's east end, in the Grapetree Bay area. It's a very serene and relaxing environment, within short driving distance of several nice restaurants, conveniences, and attractions.
