Cloud Nine Villa 12/03/02
Reviewers Rating: Excellent
The three outstanding features of Cloud Nine are its location, its

location, and its deck. The first location advantage of Cloud Nine is that it is at the summitof Gifft Hill, overlooking Cruz Bay. This is a nice location , sinceit is close to town, centrally located, and provides a great view ofSt. Thomas. When we stayed there in 1996, we enjoyed rising justbefore sunup at 6 am and sitting in the hot tub on the deck watchingthe lights of the cruise ships entering Charlotte Amalie, and sittingin the hot tub after sundown at 6 pm watching the lights of the cruiseships as they left Charlotte Amalie. (Unfortunately two palm treeshave since grown, blocking the view from the hot tub. However theview from the deck is still spectacular!)The second location advantage of Cloud Nine is that there is no placenearby from which you can be seen. Since no one can see you, theonly things you need wear on the deck at Cloud Nine are a smile,suntan lotion, and a hat. There's even more privacy here than atVilla Serenity. The third advantage of Cloud Nine is the big beautiful deck, witha gazebo for outdoor eating, a hot tub for cool mornings and evenings,and a small (8' x16' x 3') pool for cooling off when the afternoon sungets too hot. Most days we'd walk/swim/snorkel in the morning , andspend the afternoon on the deck with a blender of pina coladas. Ourfavorite place to eat was the deck of Cloud Nine! The kitchen isnicely equipped for preparing meals, The villa has a nice gas grill onthe deck which we used to grill steaks. Other nights we had steamedshrimp with pasta, and scallops. The view of the sunset over St.Thomas was better than from any restaurant, and besides we didn't haveto dress for dinner (at all!) Cloud Nine itself consists of two buildings connected by abreezeway. One building contains the two bedrooms, each with its ownbathroom, while the other contains the kitchen, living room, and aloft bedroom. It has a fully equipped kitchen and a gas grill on thedeck.I'd choose Cloud Nine for a more romantic, villa-oriented vacation.
