We had a wonderful stay at Villa Dawn on St. Croix. We had never rented a private villa before and didn't know what to expect but we were very surprised to find that the villa and its location were better than we had expected from seeing it on their fantastic website. The owners of the property helped us with all of our plans and gave us lots of tips for things to do and where to dine.
The villa itself was just beautiful and was decorated just wonderfully. I don't think that there was one thing that they forgot to include in the villa. It was very clean and was maintained excellently. We have never stayed anywhere that had a better view!
The villa was very close to the water and the walk to the beach only took about three minutes. Cane Bay Beach was beautiful and you could swim, snorkel or go diving. Some of our group were divers and they said that diving the Cane Bay Wall, which was just a short swim from the beach, was just spectacular. There is a dive shop accross the street from the beach where you could rent dive gear as well as snorkel gear.
There are several places to eat within walking distance of the villa and we spent a lot of time at Off the Wall Bar & Grill, eating and drinking and watching the sunsets. Did I mention the sunsets? That was a favorite of all of us. You could sit on a stool in the pool with a drink and watch the sun go down over the ocean...it just doen't get any better!
There was so much to do within walking distance of the villa, swim, snorkel, dive, kayak, horseback ride, eat, drink, that we had to tear our selves away to see the rest of the island!
Overall, our stay at Villa Dawn was wonderful. The villa and pool are awesome, the views are to die for, and the owners very helpful and friendly. We will be back!
