About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This is a Beachfront Home with 4 bedrooms all having En-suite baths perfect for couples or a family stay. This villa has a terrific layout for privacy as each bedroom suite is located in a different wing of the house. The Swimming pool is on the entry side of the home with a really nice private courtyard.

Best yet...this is an invitation to 'live in a glass house' surrounded by views. The roll and rush of the ocean are the focal point from every vantage point.. Every glance is an ocean view through the expansive walls of windows. From the break of sunrise to the moon's reflective ocean glow -- you are part of the Caribbean Ocean.

This 2500 square-foot villa is enhanced by a wall of french doors which open to include the 1500 square-foot lush courtyard patio. Open each door to extend the villa, and place the pool just steps from any room in the villa. A convivial party atmosphere for any occasion!

The home is located in the exclusive gated community of Judith Fancy on the North shore of St. Croix, with views of Christiansted Harbor and Buck Island. Enjoy the primitive lure of island life in the comfort of a villa! A 10 minute drive to the best restaurants and nightlife in Christiansted, or retreat to the moon glow of the Caribbean Ocean -- your choice!

A 10 minute walk to Salt River Bay National Historic Park & Ecological Preserve puts you on the only lands Christopher Columbus touched belonging to the United States.

The master bedroom and bath opens to its own ocean-front deck and has its own private outdoor shower and sunbathing area. The other bedrooms also have an ocean views.. The fourth bedroom is located close to the swimming pool and has a view of the ocean and Buck Island.

The courtyard and swimming pool are completely walled and private. The property is surrounded by 6 to 10 foot rows of sea grapes plants on either side to provide seclusion from neighbors on an acre of sea-front land.

On 'special days', you'll see St. Thomas or St. John 40 miles off in the distance, or catch sight of an errant kite surfer shooting the waves or maybe you will taste the salt spray as you bathe in the tropical sun on the ocean-front deck. And on 'special nights', you'll be able to wish upon a falling star under the Caribbean sky. May your stay include a very special time!

Bedroom #1 (Master) King size bed

Bedroom #2 King size bed or can be made up as two twin beds

Bedroom #3 Queen size bed

Bedroom #4 Queen size bed

**no extra sleeping capacity than the beds listed above.

Suitability Disclaimer: This home is 100 feet away from the ocean (you could not get any closer unless you were staying on a house boat). Coastal regulations no longer approve homes to be built this close to the ocean. Guests should expect to see some level of rust in areas throughout the home this is due to constant salt spray and high humidity. This is a comfortable older beachfront home. The value in the stay is the spectacular oceanfront location (sounds of the waves) not in the home itself. Therefore, this vacation rental may not be suitable to guests that are accustomed to pristine 5 star resort style accommodations. Other things to note is this is not a sandy beach it is fairly rocky and air conditioning is only in the bedrooms.

Dear Prospective Guest,

There aren’t really too many house rules. Basically, come in and make yourself at home. There’s no such thing as a check-in time that’s too late, so no worries there. Let me know if you’d like an earlier check-in time than 5:00 PM or later check-out time than 10:00AM. It can usually be arranged, depending on other bookings.

Our only request is please do not invite visitors, the villa and all the amenities we provide are only for our registered guests.

Please do not strip the sheets off the bed we prefer to do this ourselves, just put the beds back the way you found them with bedding left flat on top of the beds. If towels are damp please hang them over the towel rack to air dry. Please wipe down kitchen counter tops, load and start the dishwasher(s) if you are unsure where kitchen inventory belongs please leave on the counter. If grill has been used, please brush grill down and wipe off side trays. Lights have been turned off and check to make sure all doors are locked and bag all trash from kitchen and just toss your trash in the garbage receptacle(s) on the side of the driveway on your way out.

After you book and well before your arrival date, you’ll receive an email from us explaining how to get to the villa, where to park, and all sorts of good information about things to do in and around this wonderful island. When you arrive, there will be tourist brochures and welcome letter with more information, like WiFi access code and restaurant recommendations.

We want you to thoroughly enjoy the villa and your time in St. Croix. We’ll do everything we can to make that happen. It’s hoped you’ll book with us over and over again. We truly want you to enjoy the accommodations. We'll do everything I can to make your stay wonderful.

About The Owner

My husband and I used to own the villa and sold it to Larry and his wife Jane back in 2005. We have been handling all the reservations for them for the past ten years. What we enjoy most is seeing all the wonderful renovations the entire villa has been remodeled with new kitchen, bathrooms, floors, windows and much more..

Larry, is a gentleman farmer in Central Pennsylvania and has managed up to 40 head of cattle on their 200-acre farm. The purchased this vacation home in St. Croix because, after traveling throughout the Caribbean, the felt this island has the Caribbean ambiance, while still having American convenience!

Larry’s wife's family is from Venezuela, so they have enjoyed trips to Angel Falls and Machu Picchu in South America. They have witnessed several volcano eruptions in Costa Rica, traveled in Cappadocia, Turkey and the Red Zone of Australia.

Larry has been in the Real Estate Development and Brokerage business for the past 40 years.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose USVI/St. Croix

Since we were the previous owners we can describe the villa in great detail. If you are looking for an oceanfront property with a semi private beach only steps away... then you have come to the right place! The best feature of this villa is every bedroom has it's own private bathroom. The villa has tons of windows and with it sitting so close to the ocean you can see beautiful blue ocean views out every window in the villa. The kitchen has French Doors that open up to the patio is another really neat feature. A super villa for family gatherings and for multiple couples!

What makes this house unique

Always being able to enjoy waking to the sounds and sight of the ocean, so I chose this ocean-front property. Larry and Jane have enjoyed St. Lucia with its characteristic pitons, Dominica because of its pristine Caribbean flavor, Barbados with its South American character, but St. Croix is the place they can call home!

Beachfront Home ~ 4 bedrooms with 4 insuite Baths~Gated Community
average rating of 4.5 based on 8 reviews

Beautiful home.

  • 4 of 5

House is beautiful and well equipped. Outdoor space, including pool is fabulous. Kitchen great if a cook. Cons: beach is not swimmable or walkable- should be mentioned in the overview and no air conditioning in the main space makes staying inside uncomfortable.

Relaxing Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit and stay in Judith's Fancy at the Sea Glass Villa! We stayed April 8-15. The house is exactly as it appears in the pics. Very comfortable with everything you need. The bedrooms and baths were relaxing and nicely decorated. The kitchen was well equipped as we cooked most days for the four of us occupying the home. There are extra fans in the bedrooms. The pool was sparkling blue and well maintained. We enjoyed lounging and swimming in the warm sun and/or moonlight. You will need swim shoes for the beach area. The house has some snorkel equipment available, pool floats and sand toys. Go to the house first and explore what's available before you go buy food or accessories as you never know what the previous renters may have left behind for the next renters :) We also used the grill for two dinners. There are four large beach towels per bedroom. The washer and dryer were handy as well. The back porch was lovely, especially in the mornings eating breakfast and watching the sun rise. As a previous reviewer stated, the home does show a little wear and tear, but it was nothing that prevented us from having a fabulous time and enjoying everything about the home and the area.

Michael, the caretaker, was extremely helpful, quick to respond and available for anything we needed.

This was our second visit to St Croix. Our favorite eatery is Rowdy Joe's. We ate outside on the patio and the staff is AMAZING (Burger was her last name and the other staff was equally awesome) and the food, well... off the hook. We also had dessert and drinks at Savant, downtown Christiansted. We particularly enjoyed eating downstairs in The Courtyard. Off The Wall was fun as well.

We drove all over the island; visited Point Udall and the Frederiksted Pier, stopped and hung out at beaches here and there. Shopped downtown Christiansted (Asha, The Blue Mutt, and many more), Christiansted Harbor (they have a live cam there :)) and loads of really cool shops and eateries. When you hit The Bistro, Coffee and Eatery (great coffee and eats) you must go next door and visit Undercover Books. These ladies are absolutely beautiful and the store has so much to explore.

Our visit was bittersweet as there was a death in our original 8 person group prior to our arrival. Linda was quick to respond to questions we had, modifications to the guest list, and we appreciated her condolences as well.

We look forward to returning soon.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 spent a week in this beautifully appointed house in Judith's fancy. Although it sits on oceanfront, the beach is very rocky and the shallows are filled with lots of sea urchins, not conducive for swimming, snorkeling, or sunbathing, but St. Croix has a plethora of beaches and we visited many -- our favorites were Cane Bay Beach for snorkeling and Shoys for the grandkids. The caretaker, Michael, responded quickly to our queries and dealt with a problem with a locked bedroom. Nearly constant breezes and the sound of the surf lulled us to sleep and the sun shone every day. The kitchen is very well supplied, the 4 bedrooms are spaced to give privacy and there's plenty of room in the common areas for the entire family. We enjoyed the pool and eating together on the patio. It's so nice to have the conveniences of home and not be stuck in a hotel room. Thanks to Lisa for all her answers to our questions!

Glorious Week at the beach

  • 4 of 5

BEACHFRONT says it all. The waves break literally feet from the foot of your bed. Saw gorgeous rainbows each day associated with a bit of the liquid sunshine with which we were blessed.

Located in a quiet, friendly, gated neighborhood with plenty of elbow room between the homes. No chance neighbors will disturb each other with music or partying. Spacious deck area (portions under roof, portions under the sky so useable if you get a shower), protected from the strong trade winds by the house, was perfect for dining out or playing a card or board game with the family. The pool and surrounding deck got a ton of use from grandparents, kids and grandkids alike, including the two year old! The listing description is spot on accurate. Plenty of equipment from beach chairs, coolers, snorkel masks and fins in the large box on the leeward deck.

House was clean on arrival but difficult to keep clean (we managed). Great Room which includes kitchen is not air conditioned so we left the doors open for the cooling sea breeze. This was problematic because with the breeze comes very humid salt air which condensed and left wet salt deposits on the floors and counter tops. And when you get a shower with a strong breeze you have to close up or mop up. We used the plentiful supply of "Old Towels for Cleanup" we found in the master bedroom utility closet. Washed dried and returned to the bin before departure so the next guest would have them available. The house could benefit from having a mop and bucket. Many of the fixtures are beginning to show fatigue from the constant salt air breeze.

We were there for Christmas week 2015. Very high winds each day kept us off the beach in front of the house and along the north shore coast. A short ride away we found Cane Bay, well enough protected for snorkeling, bathing and picnicking. Spent two days there. Ate at the Off the Wall Beach Bar and Rowdy Joes as suggested by Michael the Caretaker. Good calls. Spent a day snorkeling at the Frederiksted Pier. Parked at the beach and swam out from there. Highly recommended especially if you've never been face-to-face with a barracuda in HIS environment. Got rotisserie chicken and fixins from La Reine Chicken (you'll pass it on your left on the way from the airport) one night. Great price, no work for our vacationing "cooks", delicious dinner on the patio (just add rum). Favorite restuaunt was Angry Nates on the waterfront in Christiansted.

Not what I expected

  • 3 of 5

Terrific location, having lived on St Croix for several years I knew what a great location this was. The property itself left something to be desired however, the pictures of the rental are several years old I would guess based on the condition. We had doors that would not close and lock, a roof leak in one of the bedrooms every time it rained so you had to move everything off the floor. The maintenance guy, Michael, did everything he could and was very helpful. And was there in no time flat which was great when we ran out of water.I also would urge you to review the lease prior to leasing as there are some unusual rules. Not to mention the fact the leasing agent is not on Island. I would not recommend this home for the price you can do better elsewhere.

Owner's Response: We were sorry to hear that this guest was disappointed with the villa. The photos are not old they were taken professionally this past February. The home was also freshly painted just a few weeks before this guest arrived. This review is misleading this is not a home that is neglected and there was nothing wrong with the roof the problem was related to a gutter issue during this guests stay. The caretaker came out immediately and opened up another bedroom for them The guest never disclosed to us that the real intent was to utilize the villa as a gathering place to host a reunion with friends that live on St. Croix. The guest was very unhappy with us when he learned there would be a visitor fee to cover the cost of the additional water usage. This guest drained every drop of water out of the cistern, usage was 250 gallons of water. They alerted us that the villa had run out of water right before check out. We agreed to work on an honor system for visitors and to just advise us as to how many visitors they had after the stay. The guest claimed that they did not have any visitors which we thought was odd based on the water usage unless they turned the water on and had mistakenly forgotten to turn the faucet off. We all tried our very best to attend to this guests needs in every way.

Beautiful house with lots of amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time to Sea Glass Villa and it gets better each time. The house has new floors, new furniture and now has wireless internet. Its nice to be able to sit outside, watching the sun come up and check emails before leaving for the beaches!. Each bedroom is private and has its own ocean view. As the sun rises, with Buck Island and Christiansted in the background, the views are some of the best on the island. The house in a gated community; very private yet conveniently located close to downtown Christiansted. Shopping, dining and water sports are all close by. The house has a pool area with lots of chairs and toys available. The area by the pool is great for morning breakfast outside and late evening card games. The local roads are great for morning walks and the hill close by offers spectacular views. We will definitely be back!
