About Lexi Segre

Luis and Lexi are both Caribbean natives, Luis, an architect, was born in Cuba , while Lexi, a jewelry designer, was raised in nearly Puerto Rico. We were captivated by St. John and it's magnificent beaches from the first time we visited. We hope our guests enjoy St. John as much as we do!

Lexi Segre purchased this condo in 2014

Why Lexi Segre chose Cruz Bay

Back in 2000, we visited St. John for the first time and we fell in love with this magical island. We came back to visit each and every year since, sometimes up to seven times per year, because we just couldn't get enough of St. John.

During one of these visits we stayed in Sunset Vista and feel in love with its amazing views and location

In 2007 we purchased our first unit in this intimate condominium complex (Villas on the Upper Deck) of only 11 units, and have thoroughly enjoyed it over the years with our family and friends.

In 2014, we are excited to have purchased Sunset Vista also located in the Villas on the Upper Deck, with magical views, island trade-winds and convenient central location.

What makes this condo unique

This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom standalone hilltop villa is the perfect place to come back to after a fun day at St. John's pristine beaches. The open island style floor plan and high ceilings give it a warm comfortable feel. It's front porch overlooking the Caribbean's blue waters is the perfect place from where to relax watching a glorious sunset and/or prepare a juicy meal in the BBQ.

Sunset Vista's hilltop location is removed from the beaten path, but also centrally located near all the conveniences you'll need to have an amazing time on this magical island of St. John.

Great rental with beautiful view and 5 minute drive to Cruz Bay.

  • 5 of 5

Great rental in St John! We are a family of four and had an amazing week in St John. When we got off the ferry we were greeted by Tim from the management company and he drove us to pick up our jeep rental and took us right to the property. It is in a great location. Just a 5-10 min drive to Cruz Bay. Highly recommend this rental.

An excellent option for a relatively low budget

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very comfortable and clean and the views off the deck were beautiful. I would definitely stay there again. I took my son and his best friend to St. John for spring break and we had a fantastic time. It was nice to have a kitchen so we could cook some meals (we ate breakfast at home every day and had a couple of dinners as well). The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The only down-side to the condo was that the hot water in the boy's bathroom didn't work so they had to shower in mine. Note too that there bedrooms have openings to the public space high on the wall, so the bedrooms are not very sound-proof. It wasn't a problem for us, but it might be if privacy is a concern.

Disappointed in St John

  • 3 of 5

St John is a beautiful tropical island and was fairly quiet while we stayed there. The beaches and snorkeling were extraordinary. We shared this villa with another couple who we travel with regularly. My overall feedback on the unit is fairly positive. It is not huge but has plenty of space. It was clean and nicely furnished. We like to cook and found the kitchen to be fairly well equipped compared to other situations we have been in. The place is nicely decorated and comfortable. The view is breathtaking and we had numerous beautiful sunsets. However, due to the heavy wooden levered patio doors the view was not "viewable" unless you went outside. The November temperatures were in the mid 80's and it is fairly humid. The main room air conditioning unit was not operating nor appears be set up to run. this required the constant use of all ceiling fans and the master bedroom AC to be running constantly. The unit has beautiful vaulted ceilings. However, the bedrooms were also opened up to these ceilings. This did enable the air to flow freely through the entire unit but also all sounds. So we never really had any privacy. The management company was responsive and helpful to any requests that they could control. I would not recommend this unit.

Gorgeous views, sufficient and nice space for family of 4 (few minor issues)

  • 4 of 5

We had a terrific week with our family, two adults, two kids (7, 10). It was clean and comfortable and perfect for our week. The location of this unit was very close to town, 2 minute drive, which was nice, but it's on top of a very steep hill, the drive was always entertaining getting up there. We had a few nice nights just sitting and reading on the deck with the beautiful view. The space is totally fine and works well for a family of this size, any more and it would be crowded. For the most part everything in the unit was fine, it was bright during the day, the lighting at night was not great, the main bedroom has poor lighting at night but that was not a big deal. The kitchen had a few small issues that were quickly addressed for us, which was helpful. The kitchen was not stocked as well as we might have preferred, that was one gripe, the pots and pans were so-so and the drawers didn't have a lot of great utensils or we couldn't find a potholder, so that was tricky. Just little annoyances. The living room was comfortable and spacious, dining table worked out well. We didn't love the rooster crowing before 7 a.m. every morning, but it brought a few laughs from the kids! :) There was a beautiful picture of a swimming pool in the photos, but nobody told us where it was, and as it turns out the pool is not connected to the unit and is a good walk away. It was not a big deal, as we spent our days at the beaches, but we wish we were better informed about the pool. "A few steps away" is not quite what we learned. All in all, can happily recommend it as a nice alternative to the expensive hotels!

Awesome family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent a week at this apartment. The views from the balcony were beautiful which made for nice evening BBQ's. The apartment is well equipped and very clean. The pool area also had beautiful views. It is located close to many great beaches and restaurants. It was a great place for us to recharge our batteries before another day on the spectacular beaches of St. John. Highly recommended for a couples getaway or family vacation.

Great Villa in Great Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this villa last year with our two young boys. We were very satisfied with our stay. It is very clean, comfortable, and well kept. It is minutes away from the restaurants and shops at Cruz Bay. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a nice place to stay.
