Power and internet restored!. Located on a cliff in an upscale neighborhood on the East End of St. Croix, Villa Paradiso boasts one of the most spectacular ocean views on the island. Completed in 2011, this fabulous home has spectacular, million dollar views that will delight even the most discerning traveler. The villa offers three separate living areas with their own terraces allowing couples to enjoy maximum privacy. There are breathtaking ocean views from each of the 3 bedrooms and private patios. The home is within a short hiking distance of Jack's and Isaac's Bays (pictured) .These are pristine, secluded and mostly deserted national park beaches. The path to these beaches is directly below the house. We are the only rental property on St. Croix with direct access to the path from our home, as our property borders the national park. Occasionally you will meet another group but most of the time you will have this paradise to yourselves. These beaches are perfect for snorkeling and playing in the weaves. We are the only rental property on St. Croix with direct access to the path from our home.

The home is tastefully decorated with interesting antiques, four poster beds and bright Caribbean colors, and is a perfect retreat for two or three couples. The great room/kitchen opens to the spacious terrace with open air dining and outdoor recliners. The knife edge saline pool blends with the ocean and the underwater benches are the perfect spot for sipping cocktails and watching the sunset . The ambience of the home is casual Caribbean elegance and it is maintained to the highest standards by our team. Our wonderful reviews show our attention to detail in every aspect of your stay, from the moment your arrive to when you depart Villa Paradiso.

We are sorry but the property is not suitable for children. Children must be 16 years or older. We are firm on this.

The villa has a whole house generator in case of power failures.

Netflix movies and a Wii station are available.

About Colette Diegel and Tim Diegel

We are a family of four from Minnesota. My husband Tim, is still working so we are happy to rent our home to others who would enjoy it. We have two daughters,Clare and Shannon, aged 30 and 31. My father, Terry, is also pictured.

Colette Diegel and Tim Diegel purchased this Villa in 2011

Why Colette Diegel and Tim Diegel chose Estate South Grapetree Bay

We choose the site because of the staggering view. We had a condo at the Reef nearby and would drive up and dream of the home we would build. We built our home in 2011 to take advantage of the truly spectacular jaw dropping view and the lovely trade winds.

What makes this Villa unique

The privacy of this executive location is wonderful. The house was built with three distinct guest suites with their own private balconies where couples could retreat to for some quiet time. There is ample deck space for communal activities and the pool is knock out focal point for the whole house.

                                                                      The place is perfect. Spectacular view. It’s a good get away place to have quiet time and just enjoy the nature, from sunrise to sunset; and the soothing sound of the ocean waves. My husband and I love the walk down to the beach and just chill in the patio during our stay relaxing and didn’t even bother to watch TV. Bobbie is very helpful getting us situated from the time she met us at the airport and helped us go to mini grocery, to getting us to the house and going over about everything we need to know about our stay in the house and things to do & see while in St Croix. Definitely it’s a must see and experience place to be. Thank you for the wonderful service and making us feel like home.

The view, the view, the view! The villa is stunning, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. All the comforts of home and then some. We had breakfast each morning outside in the gallery by the pool and just absorbed the breathtaking view. Had to force ourselves to leave and explore the island. Bobbie, the island contact for the villa provides a wealth of information. She met us at the airport and helped us get groceries. She was extremely helpful and informative. We followed her recommendations and were never disappointed. She goes out of her way to make your stay perfect, we made a friend for life. ALL of us fell in love with the villa and the island of St. Croix. Already planning our next trip back!

It is a spectacular property and we are very proud of it and the great people we have on our team. Bobbie is such a treasure! She cares deeply about our guests and it shows. Hurry back! Colette

                                                                      The beaches were beautiful and quite private. We enjoyed snorkeling Isaacs which was a short hike from the house.

We could just feel the hospitality from all the little details that made it so special, and the graciousness extended by Bobbie was exceptional. We loved the location of the home, so private yet so close to great restaurants. Duggans was such a favorite that we ate there 3 nights. The home has everything that is needed for a very relaxing stay and the beautiful décor just made it even more enjoyable. This was our first visit to St. Croix so the information packet you sent was very helpful to get to know the island and plan our trip. We definitely will be returning and making the Villa our own for another vacation.

                                                                      We had the pleasure of spending 1 week at this beautiful home with the most gorgeous views. We stayed there with 1 other couple & the house was perfect. Bobbie & Bob met us at the airport, escorted us to the house and answered all of our questions. The owners provided a large binder of island information to use if needed. The rooms are completely private from each other and then we could hang out in the common area inside & out by the pool where we spent most of our time. You can easily hike down to Jacks Bay & have the beach all to yourself. Bring good shoes for the hike though because the thorny bushes will get ya! We really loved the East end of the island because it was very quiet and still had access to many things to do. Great local shops & restaurants. Thank you for sharing your stunning home with us.

                                                                      Incredible Place!

                                                                      I normally don't write reviews for places I stay but this property was so absolutely wonderful I could not refrain. Like some of the other reviews mention the pictures on the website do not do this place justice. The views are breathtaking. The owners of his villa really take care of the property, and go above and beyond making sure to accommodate our every need. The villa was very well maintained and immaculately clean upon our arrival. Bobbie, who manages the property, was extremely helpful in making everything perfect. She met us at the airport where we rented our car, and even stopped by the grocery store for us on the way out to the villa. The house is quite close to some very good restaurants - while we did quite a few our favorite was Blue Water Terrace. Golf at the Buccaneer club was wonderful and the scuba diving ranks up there with other great places we've been in the Caribbean. We will definitely be returning to St. Croix and will certainly stay at the Villa Paradiso again.

                                                                      Owner's Response:
