Overview

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.

About Bill Graham

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.

Bill Graham purchased this villa in 2006

Why Bill Graham chose USVI/St. Croix

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Blue Iguana - Paradise Dream Home!

  • 5 of 5

Another couple joined us for a magical week at Blue Iguana. Centrally located in one of the best neighborhoods in St Croix, Judith's Fancy, a private gated community, this well equipped and comfortable beach house had all the expected amenities and more.

Includes a long beach for strolling, swimming and collecting shells and sea glass, and a great neighborhood for walking / exploring / jogging, and taking in the great views and the starlit skies at night.

Kitchen, Bedrooms and Baths, and W/D in home all top drawer, clean, comfortable and well stocked. And not to miss the master bath private outdoor shower, which got a lot of use. We found cooking a few meals and making our afternoon exotic tropical drinks a breeze, with the kitchen appliances, and cookware.

Location made it so easy to get to either large large town on the island and explore the restaurants, shops, beaches, and outdoor land or sea activities. St Croix is a laid back 'country' feel kind of island, with much less built up touristy commercialism which has kind of spoiled St Thomas, at least for us. Enjoy, you will not be disappointed!!

An Experience You Don't Want to Miss!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were only able to stay for 5 days but would loved to have stayed for 5 years although I think the owners might have had an issue with that :) What a phenomenal set-up! The house gives you that "beach" feeling the moment you walk in. Beautifully decorated, everything about it says, "relax and enjoy". And then there's the back deck (which is a whole other experience) - like walking into a post card. The constant ocean breeze, smell of salt air and watching and hearing the waves break is mesmerizing. Bill and Jackie (owners) were as excited about having us stay there as guests as we were being there. Fantastic hosts! It's only been a couple of weeks since we departed but we've already started mapping out our return. You are truly missing out if you don't stay here on your next (or first) visit to St. Croix

BLUE IGUANA WILL NOT DISAPPOINT

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week on St Croix and chose the stay at the Blue Iguana. This villa is well kept, quiet, and safe. We loved being able to take a few steps from the house and be on the beach or enjoy a coffee next to the pool watching the waves crashing on the shore. The views are exceptional. Bill the owner was extremely helpful with any questions we had. St Croix is a must visit, especially if you like empty sandy beaches, awesome snorkeling/ diving, sightseeing, great food, rum and Beer drinking Pigs. No doubt we will be returning to St. Croix in the near future.

GREAT stay at Blue Iguana !

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing week at Blue Iguana…the villa is wonderful. My family really enjoyed the villa layout, the pool and the proximity to the beach and ocean. We spent many hours just lounging poolside and staring at the waves rolling in…I really miss the sound of the waves crashing. The villa is very comfortable…from the beds to the chairs/loungers out on the pool deck. The kitchen is stocked with all the appliances you’ll need and the washer and dryer worked great. The neighborhood where the villa is located is great and we met many nice people walking around in the neighborhood and on the beach. Bill, the villa owner, is a pleasure to work with and was very prompt and helpful. Inderia, the greeter, was very pleasant and very informative about the island. We had a great vacation and look forward to returning to Blue Iguana and St. Croix in the future!

Elegant 5-star villa in every sense!

  • 5 of 5

This elegant villa has travertine floors, marble bathroom walls, granite counter tops, tall cypress wood ceilings, comfortable tasteful furnishings and a terrific outdoor shower. Soaking up the sun on the pool deck is as good as it gets! Watching the brilliantly clean, white-capped waves roll in across the multi-blue colored ocean is a sight to behold. Start your day with coffee in comfortable Adirondack chairs while looking across your pool at the waves rolling in. We continued to watch the waves roll onto the white sand beach while listening to our music (iPhone, MP3, etc) on the villa's outdoor speakers, tasting blender drinks made in the villa's well-equipped kitchen, and swimming in the villa's perfectly sized pool. During our stay we occasionally viewed people down the coast, surfing and kite boarding all from the privacy of our luxury villa. Watching the crystal clear, blue water just never got old. We will be back often!
