Ces’t la Vie......Amazing
Just returned home from a week in St Croix and this Home was absolutely perfect. The views are breathtaking. Rebecca,the owner and hostess was extremely gracious and welcoming and extremely helpful with any recommendations. I would highly recommend this Home and would love to return. You will not be disappointed. A true gem.
Lovely home and amazing views! close to beautiful beaches and laid back side of Island. All amenities of the house were high quality which made our stay very comfortable and relaxing. I highly recommend this home for a relaxing vacation on St. Croix and the pool is great for laps and lounging.
Thank you Veronica. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay !
Our family just returned from spending a week at C'est la Vie. We all loved it; the views are stunning, it's quiet and peaceful, yet not too far from town. It's the perfect spot for a family with young adult children; we all had privacy when desired but there's plenty of group space to hang out and enjoy being together. The pool was refreshing for afternoons spent relaxing after diving or exploring St. Croix above surface during the morning.
Rebecca is an exceedingly gracious hostess and gives you absolute privacy. She promptly responds to any questions and goes above and beyond by providing the little touches that make you feel welcomed. All of us were sad to leave. Many thanks, Rebecca, for making this a most memorable family vacation.
Thank you so much Barbara for your wonderful review. You and your family were so appreciative of everything; it was a pleasure to have you and super to that you were able to enjoy quality time with your grown up family.
Heaven on earth!
C'est la Vie is a rare pleasure. Sitting high in the green hills with panoramic sea views and gentle breezes, elegant C'est la Vie showcases traditional architecture appointed with authentic antiques. Spacious, stately and immaculately clean the accommodations were relaxed and comfortable. Ms. Merwin, who resides in the main house wing is gracious, friendly and so helpful. I can hardly wait to go back!!!!
Our stay was incredible. The house sits on the side of a small mountain with a completely un-obstructed view for sunrises, sunsets and moonrises. Each room has it's own spacious bathroom and walk in shower (one room has a wicked nice soaking tub). The beds are massive and extremely comfortable. All rooms open up onto the front porch which is covered and sits directly over the pool area and has a view of the Frederiksted coastline. The porch has a little wet bar and table for dining (the pool area also has a table and new grill under a nice wooden arbor/canopy). Having the pool was so nice to wake up to for a morning dip before having breakfast. Keep in mind, the pool area is in the sun from sunrise to sunset, perfect for tanning or lounging in the pool for extended hours.
The owner of the home was so kind and helpful. She provided a tour upon arrival and had a list of restaurants and attractions to go to (which weren't all listed clearly on tourist websites). She really made our stay better than we could have anticipated, as she knows the entire island like the back of her hand and was always available for help/questions, while also providing privacy! Another bonus, the house is about 25mins from the airport and in the direction that is out of the way of inbound/outbound flights, i.e. you don't hear loud planes arriving/departing overhead EVER.
The house is a 5min drive to Frederiksted, which offers a small town and boating excursions off of the pier (Lyric Sails, highly recommend). You can easily drive to Cane Bay and Christiansted as well, which offer additional shops/restaurants and beaches (However, we spent the majority of our time in Frederiksted).
Overall, our stay at C'est la Vie was incredible. The house, rooms, pool, views, and host were truly amazing. We have already decided to make our stay at C'est la Vie an annual vacation (if not more frequently!). We cannot recommend this place enough. It is the PERFECT get away for people of all ages and families!!!
Gem of a setting with gracious, kind host. Stayed here for 4 nites with 2 teenagers and the location is ideal if you're looking for tranquility. On west side of island near Frederiksted and easy drive to Christiansted. Excellently appointed bedrooms and kitchen and truly a special place
Thank you again Rebecca for hosting us and the setting will always have a special place in my mind. Namaste
