About the property

2 Master Bedrooms with en suite baths, Ocean views sleeps 4

Amazing views from all rooms, 2 outdoor furnished patios, extremely private standalone tri-level condo. Comfortable living room with cable TV and Internet available overlooking Buck Island. Completely renovated kitchen with new appliances. Pool available steps from villa with 360 degree view from hilltop overlooking the ocean and amazing countryside. 9 Hole Golf Course and Driving range at your fingertips. This unit DOES NOT have airconditioning, however, with the natural breezes and fans (ceiling and floor) we have found it very comfortable. We are new owners of this villa and have taken pride in renovating/cleaning/supplying this unit with everything we feel make it suitable for a laid-back lifestyle. There are so many activities to do on this lovely island, a car is a necessity for getting around though. If you want evening plans, you can choose from crab races, bingo (disco and traditional), food festivals, buffets, cultural events, music, dancing, art, bioluminescence kayak tours, and the list goes on. During the day, there are so many different beaches to explore to swim/snorkel/dive, something for everyone. Restaurants or make your own to take along for a day trip. Locals are friendly and love to talk and share their island and culture. I never knew how many fruits/vegtables one small island can grow, and the variety is endless. Lots of organic farming has taken off in the past few years which makes for some amazing meals at home or local restaurants. I will supply maps, local fliers of eateries/markets. Contact me for any other information! Last but not least, water conservation is a must, as with any island, the only water we get is from the clouds and there are sometimes weeks without any precipitation!!

About Vivian and Ed Blair

Ed and I were lucky enough to have a friend with a home on St. Croix to invite us for a week, it only took a few hours to fall in love with the island. That was 12 years ago, and we have been coming every year since!

Vivian and Ed Blair purchased this villa in 2014

Why Vivian and Ed Blair chose Cotton Valley

It was such a great opportunity to get our little slice of St. Croix, we hope to spend more time here in the coming years. Our 4 daughters love it here too!

What makes this villa unique

Easy to get to beaches, one of the best restaurants on island just across the street (Former Vice President Joe Biden eats there when on island)! Tennis courts and a pool at your fingertips if you choose to spend your vacation just at the villa surrounded by good books and a cool drink.

Very Nice Reef Bay Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our first time to St. Croix but won't be our last. Villa was clean and comfortable (it does have three levels and lots of hard surfaces like tile and brick just as a FYI). Rental car a must. Location is nice and quiet but still within 15 or so minutes of the majority of areas of interest. Ziggy's, Donovons, and Sea Side market are all close by and great. Pay attention to the golfers teeing off the 5th hole. We (two adults) would definately stay here again

What a way to relax!

  • 5 of 5

First time to the islands so did not know what to expect. The condo was clean, well equipped and quite spacious. Viv and Ed supplied everything under the sun so you need not worry if you forgot something. Rented a car for the 7 days and toured the entire island. What a difference between the North, South, West and East shores. You need to see them all. Christensted and Fredericksted were unique. Don't forget to see the drinking pig in the rain forest too. Wonderful food wherever we went. Don't forget to tour the Cruzon and Capt. Morgan distilleries. They were fun. We went to many hotels to enjoy their beaches and ended up eating there as well. The islanders were extremely helpful and so polite. What a way to enjoy the island life for the first time! A big thank you to Viv and Ed for providing me the opportunity of staying at the condo. The pool in the condo complex was clean and warm as well. Great place to stay.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were wonderful. Our family settled in to the island mode perfectly and we took advantage of all of Ed and Viv's recommendations.

We did not get all we wanted to do done in the ten day stay so plan at least seven days to just relax.

Do not ignore Buck Island - it is a treasure. Pristine.

You will be happy you stayed here if you want to unwind and feel the island spirit.

Beautiful Villa with Spectacular Views!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is located on the quiet east end of the island and offers spectacular views of the Caribbean. Windows in the living room open completely and allow for unobstructed relaxing tropical breezes. The two patio areas offer further relaxation options and outdoor dining possibilities. The villa is short drive from Christiansted which offers shopping, dining and oh yes bars on the boardwalk. You can also take snorkeling excursions or sunset cruises from Big Beards or do your sightseeing via scooter from Cruzin' Scooters (or just have a drink with Phil and Sandy!!) The island has so much to offer and there is plenty of information provided at the villa. Ed and Vivian were wonderful and friendly to deal with, the villa is newly renovated and just as pictured.

Great villa with wonderful caribbean breezes!

  • 5 of 5

October 2014 was a beautiful time to visit this newly renovated villa. The villa is as pictured and so well maintained, all the amenities for which you could ask. After a day of sightseeing it was very comfortable to relax and enjoy the island breezes on the patio and living room, overlooking the golf course and Caribbean ocean. Information was provided on everything from dining to entertainment and was so helpful. The multiple beaches you can visit and low-key local villages and shops kept us busy exploring every day. At night, there are crab-races, bingo and all the rum huts to visit. The pool area is a comfortable change from the beach and it was very relaxing sitting under the palm trees watching the iguanas. The owners were very friendly with which to work, it was like having a friend on the island. Great place to rent.
