Bedrooms 5
Space 3,500 sq ft
Property type villa

About the property

5 king size bedrooms and 4 baths and heated pool!

Breath taking view of the east end of the island which includes Buck island and as far west as the eye can see . The saltwater pool that is electrically heated * faces the view and you can see Tortola, St Thomas, St John ,and Virgin Gorda. At night it is still spectacular with the twinkling lights of the city of Christiansted. The main living area and kitchen is fully air conditioned where you can enjoy the view and big screen tv and dine in comfort. There are five king size beds with two four posters with air conditioning in each bedroom. Two large screen tvs with big speaker surround systems- one is 70 inch 3-D with dvd player in the main living area and the other is 65 inch with dvd in the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a super large Jacuzzi tub with the view of the sea and city with St Thomas on the horizon. This jacuzzi is large enough for four people. All the furnishings are high quality and mahogany throughout. All the bedrooms are king size and air conditioned. We recently remodeled the downstairs apartment with its own full kitchen and ensuite bathroom which is great for a teenager or nanny. Panama Jack patio furniture which includes a daybed, chaises and large table for eight is outside. Kitchen has dishwasher, trash compactor,microwave, and electric smooth cooktop with two double ovens. Also the property has a propane grill outside. The house sits on a high hill and is very private with an electric gate for added security and a large driveway and carport for your car. We have wifi-broadband so you can sit at the breakfast bar and compute while looking at the turquoise water beyond the pool and patio. It is very convenient to stores and restaurants. It is 5 minutes away from some of the top restaurants on the island. Beaches are only five minutes away. Bringing your toothbrush is all that is needed in Paradise!

About Donna Ford

We have just finished remodeling our villa with all new paint and furnishings, inside and out.

Why Donna Ford chose Estate Recovery Hill

We fell in love with the view and the uniquenesss of the house with its high ceilings and beautiful woodwork. The master bedroom with the Jacuzzi and view was the clincher.

Incredible property!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time on St. Croix and this house was incredible! There were eight adults and two children in our party and the Villa de Mer had more than enough room for everyone to spread out. The separate apartment worked wonderfully for the couple with two small children. The house is beautifully appointed and the view from the patio/pool area is breathtaking. The house is perched above the Christiansted harbor and is close to the boardwalk, multiple grocery stores, and is only a 20-25 minute drive from the airport and some of the best beaches on the island (Cane Bay and Rainbow are our favorites!). Donna was an amazing host and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We will definitely be back!

Absolutely Stunning and Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

Seriously, this house is amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. Just do yourself a favor and rent a SUV or 4x4. We got a jeep. The driveway up is no joke, but well worth the trip for the outcome. We absolutely loved this home and if we stay in St. Croix ever again we will look to reserve this house before looking anywhere else. You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thank you Stephen for your wonderful comments. I am so glad that you enjoyed the house. The driveway was just resurfaced with rebar and reinforced concrete. So it won't be a problem for you or anyone else again.

Perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it! Extraordinary views, gorgeous house, and a great location just a few minutes from downtown Christiansted. The house has a nicely maintained private road/driveway leading up to an automatic gate which gives some added privacy, a pool and deck that overlooks the harbor, and beautiful mahogany wood finishing inside. The kitchen has everything, the beds are big and comfy, and there is a lot of space throughout the house. The view from the pool deck was easily the highlight for me the pictures really don’t do it justice. I couldn’t have asked for more and would absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting the island!

Felt Like Home II

  • 4 of 5

I forgot to mention Donna, the property manager. She was AWESOME. She picked us up and gave us all the information we needed. She was attentive and prompt. Communication was a little shaky during the renting process but once we got past that point she was a powerhouse. Thanks Donna.

Felt like Home

  • 4 of 5

My extended family and I stayed here for my son's wedding in June. It was EVERYTHING the pictures promised and so much more. I don't have enough words or time to describe how absolutely wonderful the home is. I plan to visit again and again. I would have given it 5 stars plus except the road to get to the villa is a NIGHTMARE. No one told us about the road prior to our arrival. There were few taxis willing to travel the road and some would not even come all the way up the hill. They couldn't. The vans would slide once they got almost to the top. Who would build such a BEAUTIFUL home and not fix the road to the home? One of the drivers tried to "rip us off" so we fired him (and he still got a very nice tip $100+) and got a new driver. But the home was LOVELY!!!!!!

Owner's Response: So sorry about your road problem but taxis tend to be unreliable on the island. Most people have jeeps or suv's even as rentals. It is a paved road most of the way and there is a gravel road that is longer to get to the house. My manager was not aware of the taxi issue . I am so glad you enjoyed the house.

Incredible view, relaxing vacation, great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week here with two other couples, all adults. The house and location are amazing! The view is one of the best on the island, and the pictures do not do it justice. We would wake up in the morning and eat breakfast out on the large dining table by the pool, while watching the island come to life - waves breaking over the island reef, seaplanes taking off, and boats coming into the harbor. The house has all modern amenities - high speed Internet wifi, dishwasher, washer/dryer, air-conditioned bedrooms, satellite TV, cooking supplies, so that you don't feel like you've completely left civilization. Our afternoons were spent exploring the island (we rented a jeep from Centerline Car Rentals) - going to beaches, taking excursions - the Cruzan rum tour, snorkel trip to Buck Island are not to be missed - and "planning" our restaurants. At night, we ate at the restaurants (there are many near the house, since it's right by the downtown area), then came back and enjoyed the lighted pool area, watching the town below transform to night life, or played cards or dominoes on the large dining table in the house. We also used this time to experiment with drink recipes given to us by the local restaurants. This was an extremely relaxing vacation, made all the more amazing by the view and conveniences the house offers. We would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to others.
