About Dana and Scott
As Owners, Dana and Scott LOVE St. Croix and their Cruzan Sands Villa's beautiful setting on one of the most restful places on the island. They consider it to be incredibly good fortune to be able to own such a fabulous villa and to share it with the great guests they have had to date. They are excited to tell everyone they know about it! Contact them at any time for information. Dana & Scott got the island fever in 2002, when they built their first vacation rental, Crystal Sands Villa in the Turks and Caicos Islands. They continued to grow their business and they currently have over 450 five star reviews for their two locations! They credit the compliments to the personal attention they give to their guests.
Dana and Scott purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Dana and Scott chose Estate Salt River
The beach at Estate Salt River is one of the most picturesque settings on earth! The unique culture of the US Virgin Islands is appealing and inviting! St Croix is one of the most remarkable US Territories around, being one of the few islands that is completely surrounded by the Caribbean Sea!
What makes this Villa unique
Cruzan Sands Villa is located within beautiful Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve. Our villa is removed approximately one mile from the main roads.

Excellent Villa and wonderful beach side.
We enjoyed ourselves a lot. Austin (the Villa manager) was excellent - a real gem. We enjoyed lunch and being at the Buccaneer twice, you can go in there by just doing lunch at the Mermaid. Christensted was very enjoyable shopping. Locate car parks before going and then leave your car there. Boardwalk is very relaxing with good water side cafes, plus of course the shops but parking in the street can be difficult. Big Beard snorkeling trip is a must. Great staff, patient and fun. Altogether an excellent vacation at a first class villa.
Shower water unfortunately just warm in the morning but boiling hot in the evening due to heating from Solar panels. So shower in the evening if you wish to have a good hot one. The facilities though were excellent. We felt very much 'at home'.
Wonderful beach location, house and pool.
We were a party of 6: my wife and I, and my son, his wife, and 2 young children, 5 & 3. We all loved the beach access out the pool gate and spent hours out there every day, soaking up sun and breeze. The snorkeling is decent right off the beach, although it is challenging getting past the breakers out to where you can see the wall drop off (and where there is tons of sea life, like turtles and schools of fish). The bedrooms were spacious and satisfactory in all respects (we never used the a/c, or needed to, with the breeze blowing all the time). The kitchen is ample to prepare home cooked dinner meals, which we did 4 times during our 12 night stay. We left extensive notes on best places to buy foods on St. Croix and favorite restaurants. We'd love to make this an annual visit for all of us.
Fantastic home in a beautiful setting
Cruzan Sands Villa is everything the website says it is and so so much more! My husband and I and our two boys and their families just spent a week in this lovely home. Beautifully decorated, comfy beds and pillows, well equipped kitchen, great outdoor furniture and pool, lovely gardens with hummingbirds, iguanas, and sand crabs to watch and play with. Internet and WiFi did give us a bit of trouble but we soldiered through by calling the number left in the help book, it all got resolved. The beach is just steps away and while the winter brings rougher waves and seaweed it was still beautiful. We enjoyed our outings to the Cruzan Rum distillery (please assign a designated driver they do not skimp on their Rum), the Virgin Kayak Bio-luminescent tour and our tour and dinner in Christensted. The night we arrived we had Juliana Sheridan prepare a typical Cruzan meal and it was so delicious that we had her come back and cook for us again! Definitely treat yourself to her cooking it is fabulous and the prices are very reasonable for appetizers, cocktails, salad, soup, main course AND dessert!!! You will have leftovers for the next night too...win win! Grocery stores are not far away and they stock most items you are used to getting back in the states. The only thing we brought was our own coffee.
I loved, loved, loved Dana and Scott's Cruzan Sands Villa. Do yourself a favor and put this one on your bucket list!
Thanks so much, Dana! We loved our stay at your beautiful villa. Austin was super sweet too. We loved kayaking with Virgin Kayaks for their evening bio bay tour, and really enjoyed dining Flyers. Wonderful stay!! Thank you again!!
We had an absolutely FANTASTIC time at the Villa!!
We had an absolutely FANTASTIC time at the Villa!! We love St. Croix (who wouldn't??) and I wish I was there right now- in your Villa, of course. If you ask me, it's the ONLY way to stay in St. Croix- and Chef J's food was AWESOME & a great treat after the plane flights! The grounds- landscape and inside & out at the Villa were PERFECT!! It was a bit of a gem in the surroundings of many of the other places on the island that were hit hard. Austin is a FANTASTIC property manager! All the hard work is DEFINITELY noted big time!
So, yes-- I want to go back right now!!
Of course, though- it's going to have to be only in my mind right now- but asap I want to start planning another trip- for a longer stay (it would be nice to not have to come back at all, ha ha.)
Beautiful property and location
Five of us (two parents, married daugther and son-in-law, son). February 2018. Island is still recovering for hurricane last November, many places not open. Restaurants in Christiansted were great (except Angry Nates - fish had gone off, fake crab, lousy service). Villa was clean and everything worked. Toilet broke, one call and they were out to fix it same afternoon. I didn't like that there was a separate charge for air conditioning. We didn't use it much and they waived the charge. In mid-February was freakishly chilly and windy. Flyer
