About the Property

3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 2,500 ft2, private pool, ocean view, on the beach

It’s so close to the sea, waves lap at your toes during a memorable vacation at Blue Iguana.

Fresh and appealing as a tropical morning, this airy luxury villa is set right on the beach in the gated community of Judith’s Fancy on St. Croix’s north shore. Enter a sunny great room with walls painted the yellow hue of Ginger Thomas, the Virgin Islands’ official flower.

Rattan island-style furnishings cushioned with cheerful awning stripes invite you to sink in and put your feet up in front of an entertainment center, complete with books, videos, wireless internet and cable TV.

Overhead are white beams with track lights and rope-trimmed ceiling fans crafted like props on the local seaplanes you’ll spot taking off in the distance. A sleek, modern kitchen, with wood cabinetry trimmed in sophisticated black, has a roomy island with barstools to pull up for informal gatherings. You’re fully equipped, too, to prepare and serve elegant meals at a dining table with views of the sea.


To the right, you’ll find a master suite with a wall of windows facing the beach. Open the lower window panels to scent your dreams with the tang of salt air.

Decorated in yellow and soothing green palm tree motifs, this room, like all the bedrooms, has sliding doors leading to the pool gallery and sea. The marble master bath has a large walk-in glass shower and double vanity, plus a convenient full size washer and dryer close at hand. The secluded outdoor shower is only accessible through the master bathroom.

On the left side of the great room, a blue bedroom with twin beds has a separate bathroom/powder room with a stylish glass bowl sink.

The third Blue Iguana bedroom is very private, with entry only from the pool patio via sliding glass doors, and features a bathroom with glass-walled shower and marble vanity.
Outdoors, you’ll have an additional living area: a gallery and pool fringed in sea grape trees, where you can swim with the sights and sounds of the Caribbean, or blink in the sun like the lazy iguanas that lend the villa their name. Walk just seven steps down to the sand for morning strolls and with a view of sailboats navigating their way to harbor.

Blue Iguana's travertine floors, high cypress wood and white beam ceilings, granite counter tops, marble bathroom walls, and tall glass window walls facing the ocean in every room lend an elegant feel to this high end villa.

Though you can spend glorious days without ever leaving the villa, its centered north shore location is ideal for enjoying all St. Croix offers. Just a few minutes away by car, fine dining is offered at oceanfront restaurants. Head east to explore the Colonial Danish West Indies town of Christiansted, with its historic sites, boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants.

Or turn the other direction for the Salt River Marina and Cane Bay, both offering Scuba diving, kayaking, and additional water sports. Enjoy spectacular sunsets at the island’s second town of Frederiksted at the far west end of the island.

Returning to your villa, you’ll note a striking contrast between the old and the new. Nearby are treasured plantation ruins, dating back to the island’s earliest settlement, yet indoors you’ll be pampered by today’s favorite amenities facing the timeless sea. And you’ll find contrast, too, in your choice between abundant activities available or the chance to truly enjoy doing nothing at all, the true sign of a perfect vacation.

Furnishings include linens, towels, a full kitchen and washer/dryer. Mid-stay maid service is provided one time per week. Rates do not include the USVI 12.5% Hotel Tax. 50% of the rental is required to confirm a reservation with the full balance due 45 days prior to arrival. We accept Visa and Mastercard. The damage deposit is $500 and it will be refunded within 3 days of departure provided there is no damage. We also suggest you purchase travel insurance. Please be sure to read our terms and conditions page before booking.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Jackie and I met and married while I was in the U.S. Army flying helicopters before retiring as a Colonel in 2001. Our son Gavin was born while we were stationed in Germany. We currently live in Virginia, just outside of DC where Jackie works in one of our government's comptroller offices. Gavin is a college freshman. The three of us love beach vacations. The crystal clear blue water of the Caribbean is our favorite vacation spot.

Why the Owner Chose Judith's Fancy, St. Croix, USVI:
St Croix is the only island where we could afford to build our dream house on a white sand ocean beach. We designed it and quarterbacked the construction. We love it and hope you do too.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our home is in a gated community with terrific neighbors. The roads are usually empty and ideal for walking, running, or skate boarding. The beach is terrific for strolling or just sitting and watching an unbelievably beautiful ocean.
