Second Wind is in Reef Bay and just a few minute walk to the beaches of Reef Bay which are virtually empty and beautiful. The drive from Cruz Bay to Second Wind villa is about 20 minutes on roads that many would find challenging (we thought they were fun!) - 4 wheel drive vehicle is a must.
The villa was newly built in Feb. 2000. We rented Feb 2001. Everything is nice and new - appliances, furniture, etc. It has 2 separate bedroom pavilions on either end of a very long deck and a third bedroom in the main house. All 3 are equal - nicely furnished, very comfortable, sliding glass doors to deck. Each pavilion has its own bathroom, huge closet and wonderful outdoor shower. Bedroom in main house has the same. House has great kitchen with all the necessities, good selection of pots and pans and dishes. Dining room and living room are one big room with lots of windows and 2 sets sliding glass doors. Great lighting throughout house. House could, however, use better stereo system. Nice dipping pool and large hot tub located between main house and one of the bedroom pavilions. The view is okay - mostly open ocean. But late at night you can see the lights of St Croix through binoculars. We rented Second Wind through Caribbean Villas & Resorts and you can see pictures of it at:
We thought the villa was great - clean, new, very comfortable. But we only paid $2650 for 2 couples because we reserved it before the third pavilion had been built. (Now it rents for $3850 in February.)
