Villa Margarita 12/27/2006
Reviewers Rating: Excellent
My husband and I arrived at Villa Margarita after a less than perfect stay at another cottage on St. Croix. We were so thrilled with Villa Margarita, from our drive out along the Salt River Bay to our entrance into the home through a large and spacious foyer, that we wished we had booked our 8 nights at Villa Margarita instead of only 4 nights!!! Villa Margarita has a gorgeous location on a small cliff above the Caribbean Sea, which catches the most delicious breezes and affords both sunrise/moonrise and sunset views. On the multi-tiered decks below, a refreshing pool overlooks the lushly landscaped grounds and the beautiful reef.

Our warm and inviting welcome from both Adele and John, the husband and wife team who own and operate Villa Margarita, and their beautiful dog Blade, set the tone for the rest of our stay. An island cocktail hour hosted each evening by Adele and John gave us the opportunity to relax and meet the guests staying in the 2 other guest suites. As an aside, John makes the most delicious and potent Margaritas I have tasted in quite sometime!

We stayed in the East Suite, which is located on the second floor of the house and contained a small kitchen with everything you could possibly need to make a meal or a frozen island concoction and a lovely bath with a sliding door onto a small balcony with great views. A large sitting area with a dining table, chairs, couch, cable TV and DVD/CD player, had sliding doors opening onto a long balcony. The balcony, shared with the West Suite yet extremely private, provided stunning views of the Caribbean ocean. With a small table and chairs for lounging, it was the perfect spot for a sunrise coffee or some late afternoon reading. The bedroom was off the sitting area, with plenty of space and its own set of sliding doors to the balcony. Ceiling fans took advantage of the constant ocean breezes and kept the entire suite cool. If it felt warm at all we had a very quiet air conditioner, which would cool the suite down in a matter of moments.

Each suite (and the main house as well) was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated in a different color and theme. Our suite had colorful parrots as the motif and our rooms were comfortably furnished in soothing tones of sea green and accented with bright tropical flower prints and wall hangings. We even had a colorful parrot hanging over our bed, which swayed back and forth in the wonderful breezes. Our bath was supplied with an abundance of extra fluffy towels and an exceptional line of bath soaps and lotions. We were also provided with high quality beach towels and small coolers if we needed them.

Adele and John were the absolute perfect hosts, as they offered wonderful insight on St. Croix, where to go for entertainment, what local restaurants to dine at, beaches to visit, etc. They even invited us on several evenings to share in some island entertainment.

Villa Margarita was the perfect ending to our adventurous and wonderful 2 week visit to St. Croix. We would come back to both St. Croix and Villa Margarita in a heartbeat. You will not find more gracious hosts than Adele & John anywhere and Villa Margarita is hard to beat for value and amenities and its' beautiful location. We would say it is "Pure Perfection"!
