Right on the water and within a few minutes' walk of three beaches.
The pool at Island Views has a waterfall, and it's a nice place for those who enjoy swimming. Island Views is located on the waterfront with easy access to nearby water sports. You could walk to three beaches from this villa, taking a grass path to white sand beaches near Pull Point. If you and your friends enjoy snorkeling, that's available right off the villa. The villa itself comes with most everything you'd need for a simple week's stay, and even has full air-conditioning. When you want to play board games while enjoying the weather, or practice on the fitness equipment while listening to the iPod dock, or lounge in the hot tub, this villa is a nice option.
Island Views is the result of island living at its best and was designed for serene relaxation, indoors and out. Waterfront on its own promontory, and sleekly built around a furnished Great Room, which flows out to a heated pool, sun decks, and wide-angled sea vistas, Island Views offers two levels surrounded by ocean views, all within a few minutes' walk to three white-sand beaches and nearby Chenay Bay Resort.
The Great Room features a blend of tropical rattan, sink-into sofas, West Indian and other antique pieces, accented by fine fabrics, original art, and an entire wall of custom bookcases fashioned of andiroba wood. A desk with a computer and printer is opposite, with a powder room nearby. The Great Room is fully air-conditioned, but French doors on the ocean side are made to be thrown open to St. Croix's refreshing trade winds; they lead out to the sun deck and heated swimming pool, which are situated just a few feet from the water's edge.
Off the Great Room's east side are the kitchen and dining area. Well-laid-out and equipped with the best of almost everything, this room is air-conditioned but also dotted with windows and French doors to invite sea views, breezes, and light in. A breakfast bar with stools separates the kitchen area from dining. The dining area is set with a large round table surrounded by French doors, which open out to the pool deck on one side, and from the other sides, to the ocean side patio with cushioned sitting areas and chaise lounges for cocktails, sunning, and viewing the passing parade of yachts across the sea.
A gas grill and large teak table also await for alfresco dining on the patio. From this area, along the east side of Island Views, is a smaller patio to catch the breezes, and a sunken hot tub tucked into the garden. On the opposite side of the pool deck, near the pool's reclining Buddha and waterfall, is the air-conditioned, mirrored exercise room with yet more marine vistas seen through large windows.
Back in the Great Room, a limestone staircase ascends to Island Views' two bedroom/bath suites above. Island Views' cool and breezy upper level offers a bird's-eye view of the pool and patio below, and longer-distance views of Green Cay beyond to the far horizon. A wide covered balcony with cushioned chaises and benches connects the two suites, but both bedrooms are so well separated that one suite cannot be seen from the other, providing privacy for couples.
The Buck Island Suite features air-conditioning, banks of louvered, screened windows handcrafted from exotic andiroba wood, and a handsome tiled en-suite bath with twin vessel sinks and a shower. The air-conditioned Chenay Bay Suite features a queen four-poster bed, wide, arched louvered windows showcasing the views, and a tiled bath with a vessel sink; a glass block half-wall divides the vanity area from the large shower.
The villa is situated on its promontory to provide a backdrop of ocean and sky, with an artful floor plan providing living areas inside and out with privacy. Tasteful interiors are executed with fine furnishings and accessories, providing an oasis for rest and relaxation throughout the villa. Handsome African sapele wood ceilings add drama, with artistic lighting featured inside and out, and a collection of original Caribbean art adds a polished finish. And its location, within easy, short walks to beaches and resort amenities, is a rare treat for guests. Island Views is honored with a highly-rated distinction of five stars-terrific in so many ways.
