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.

The perfect place to live on island time!
The condo was very spacious with great views of Buck Island from the patio. It had everything was needed and it really felt like you were living at your own home instead of a hotel room. Which we really enjoyed. One of the best features is that every room or outdoor space was designed to maximize the ocean view. The area is quiet and peaceful. The pool was large, and not that crowed with great views on top of the hill. A couple good places to eat are in walking distance (TLC Kitchen which is a great breakfast place and Duggin's which is one of the nicest restaurants that we've been too on the island.) Cramers Park (beach) is really nice and only a 5 minute drive away.The location is on the far east end of the island so you will put some miles on the car to get to other attractions on the island, but the trade off is very beautiful and peaceful place to stay. I will very likely be back soon! Thanks
Cozy, quiet and great view! Will be back.
Neat, Clean and everything we need for a wonderful stay!
Thank you so very much Stan and Lisa!! Would love to have you back again!!
Good unit for cooler months, but would be challenging in the heat of the summer!
We stayed here in mid-November. The unit does not have AC, and there were a couple of nights we wished it did. The fans do help, but sometimes you need AC.
FYI - The Washer & Dryer are located in the lower bedroom.
If there is no hot water, check the switch by the access door to the utility area in the lower bedroom to the right of the washer & dryer.
There is no sign posted on the driveway for this unit. Take the 3rd left, which is a tight one to swing in anything bigger than a small car.
On particularly rainy days water will leak into the kitchen through the wall that is underground.
Watch out for the caterpillars, their bite is poisonous.
Thank you Pete! Of all the years we have been here, never noticed that our unit # is not listed on the sign or any of the signs actually. Sorry about the leak, apparently you experienced some heavy squalls. Appreciate your patience and understanding. Vivian & Ed
Glorious hillside with spectacular views! The place was even better than we imagined. We were hesitant at first with the lack of AC and the time of year, but let me assure anyone out there- you don't need it. The ocean breezes were soothing beyond belief; and so much so my wife spent a few nights outdoors under the stars! I prefer a bed, however and those were great too. The layout of the apartment was roomy and would leave plenty of privacy for a family(ies) or more. Everything was as promised, but sadly we didn't drink the bottle of local Cruzan rum (thank you though)! We stocked up at the local grocery store before getting there.
I could write an entire blog about the island! What a place! We were a bit petrified at first of the left-side driving, but settled in real soon. Note to drivers as were learned from Ron at Duggan's the first night- "Keep your left arm in the bush!" From the Dog with an Iguana in it's mouths, to the beer drinking pigs (which we found entirely by accident), the island is so laid back, and yet there is a surprise around every turn.
We decided to explore the island the first day, and explore we did. Our Sunday brunch at Louie & Nacho's (Frederiksted) with owner Monty was a great welcome to the island on our first full day there. He let us in on many island secrets and the food and drink, along with the 2nd floor ocean view was just what the doctor ordered on our first full day on St. Croix! On our way back to the Eastern side of the island (and the eastern most point of the US), we had many great visits throughout the week: Rain Forest (who knew?) , Mamawanna and the previously mentioned beer drinking pigs at the Domino Club, road side vegetable stands, Ziggy's, Duggan's, Blue Water, the beach and the Mermaid restaurant at the Buccaneer, the Jolly Roger snorkeling company, and on and on and on.
After each full day in the sun, the pool was a glorious retreat with perfect water temperatures, chairs, and a wonderful view of the heavens.
What a wonderful spot to pick for a destination wedding and we could not stop thanking our friends for picking the spot for their nuptials! Congratulations Teresa and Chris!
I think we found one heck of a candidate for a retirement spot! Can't wait to come back as there is so much more to see!
Thank you Ed and Vivian for being wonderful hosts!
Jason and Brea Allers
Thank you Jason and Brea!! So glad you enjoyed our little slice of heaven as much as we do, it really is special. Please keep in touch, V & E
Love the Location!!
This was our first visit to St.Croix! The villa was everything that we were hoping for location comfort etc... I cannot wait to go back in 2019
Very Nice Reef Bay Villa
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
So glad you enjoyed St Croix!!!
Unobstructed view of Caribbean sea, Buck Island and located directly on The Reef Golf course on St Croix's beautiful East End.
