Owner Cecilia is a great person to deal with.. Intelligent and caring... The caretakers are very helpful and even grocery shopped for us the day before we arrived and then met us at the airport. The house itself is a luxury villa with an incredible view.

“Perfect Getaway”

This is the second trip for us to St Croix and Cecilia's home for us. This was an opportunity for my wife and I to get away from the hustle and bustle of a busy life to kick back and relax. I can't say enough how beautiful the property is and how wonderful Cecilia is to deal with. Her home is absolutely beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Cecilia is very responsive and takes the time to make sure that you have a wonderful time. I could not recommend any higher.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Where to begin!! This house is absolutely Breathtaking!! Every room has an amazing view of the ocean and Buck Island in the distance. It's totally serene and private and it makes you feel like you're the only one for miles! The dock was awesome to watch the sunset from and to relax in the afternoon sun and enjoy the sounds of the waves against the shore. The pool was perfect, the outdoor living space was where we spent the majority of our time. The fans kept us cool and comfy and the lounge chairs were top notch! Each bedroom has its own a/c unit and makes it easy to sleep. The walls are thick and provide sound proofing and privacy. Having the washer and dryer there was wonderful, as we came home knowing our laundry was done and wouldn't have to worry about doing loads when we got back.
The location of the house is perfect! Point Udall is about a ten minute ride to the east and plenty of good restaurants and bars are just a ten or fifteen minute ride in either direction. Bobbie and Bob were wonderful and always responsive! They met us at the airport, allowed us time to pick up our bags and were able to guide us to the house.
If you're looking for a quiet large home to relax in and enjoy the ocean and sun that St. Croix has to offer please please please book this place. You will NOT be disappointed!!

“Relaxing, private and everything you need in one place!”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We have rented multiple villas/rentals and this was an amazing property. Bobbie, the house manager, and Cecilia, the owner, were very responsive and VERY easy to work with. It was great to have a dock and kayaks which we swam/fished right off of and swam off of multiple times. The house was well stocked and everything you needed right down to spices and q tips! The pool was great to have and there was plenty of room even up to a medium-larger sized group. Relaxing side of the island with a few restaurants and bars a short drive/walk. This would be a great house for adults that want to relax and get away (in our case) or even a family that wants to enjoy water activities and just have a private area.

“Best vacation ever!!”
Reviewed 5 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The description and pictures of Isla Vista are exactly how it appears. This place was beautiful, comfortable and had everything we needed. Cecilia has thought of everything you may need while staying at her home. Bobbie, the property manager and Mary, the housekeeper, were accommodating, friendly and gave great advice on what to do on St Croix. We were steps away from the ocean and swam in it every day. They provided kayaks and snorkel gear, which we also used at her place. This part of the island is quiet and laid back, with so many beaches, hiking spots and hidden gems. Yet, Christiansted is a short drive if you are looking for other activities. Definitely recommend a charter to Buck island to snorkel the underwater national park as well. We left relaxed, renewed and planning for our next return to Cecilia's beautiful home!

“Incredible - simply incredible!”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our stay at Cecilia's home was wonderful. Bobby, the caretaker, met us at the airport and provided us wonderful suggestions on restaurants, beaches and other fun things to do on the island. The home was beautiful and very comfortable. We loved sitting on the deck and watching the waves. We spent most evenings on the dock watching the sunset. We definitely plan to return.

“We didn't want to leave”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Isla Vista was the best home rental we have ever done, and we travel a ton. Everything was there I could have ever imagined I needed. They have gone above and beyond to make sure the experience was perfect . The detail of information prior to our arrival made for our trip to be filled with doing, and not researching which allowed for complete satisfaction. We especially loved the "Aquarium" right off the amazing dock. That and the Sea View mask (thank you Bobbie!) left me with no reason to really venture too much away from the house for snorkeling besides Buck Island. The island of St Croix and Isla Vista are a perfect combination and choice for an outstanding vacation. We have already recommended it to our friends and family and can't wait to get back there again soon!
