“Its a CONDO not a Villa !!! - UNIT-2”
Reviewed 17 July 2005

Island is so beautiful that nothing else matters !!!

PROS
- Unit 2 was nice with FANTASTIC VIEW !! from our own secluded deck, facing the swimming pool followed by beautiful sea and sunset view!!
- Had all possible stuff in the room, which are needed by a beach goer,
Towels, Beach chairs, Cooler, First aid kit, well equipped kitchen and lots of bedding stuff !!
- Condo has a cute floor plan (Kitchen,small living room and deck is downstairs and Terra-cota steps goes up to bedroom and bathroom. A/C is in living room, but if left ON for few hrs it is perfect for whole Condo)
-Bedroom is small but cute, bathroom is nice with Terra-cota tiles.

CONS
- Condo needs overall Linen makeover.
- Since it is a condo, Kitchen need to have some basic stock !! .. coffee m/c need coffee pouches
- Due to its location, either u are a confident driver or is ready to walk steep 100 mtrs up/down the hill to reach center of the town.

Recently returned from USVI. Stayed at Cruz View #1. It is above the other complexes and has a spiral staricase leading to a loft style bedroom. We were only 2 but, thought it would be nice to have the extra space. The place was well equippted with kitchen supplies and tons of bathroom towels and beach towels. They also included a cooler and a few beach chairs. The general appearnce of the unit could be livened up a bit and the couches could use an update. The bedroom & bathroom need more lights. The bedroom was the only room with and A/C.
Some pluses were we had a huge patio, the villas were quiet, pool was clean, rate was good and it's only minutes from town and the main road to all beaches.
If looking for a deal and minimal ammenities this place is for you! Our unit is privately owned and each unit most likely has it's own feel and decor.

I was shocked to read the scurrilous remarks re Cruz Views. We vacationed during the same month as the author of the negative review and had a completely different experience and perception. Our unit was well-equipped, comfortable with a porch that boasted views of Cruz Bay, the Caribbean,other islands and the sunset that were unforgettable. Sunny, the caretaker, was available for any questions-and the condo ,as well as the pool ,was scrupulously clean. We will be returning to Cruz Views in 2005.

We stayed at Cruz Views (unit #6) in early April 2004 and found it to be nothing like what was represented on Caribbean Villa's website or in their printed brochures. We didn't have a chance to see any of the other units so I suppose they might actually be nice, but all I can stay is steer clear of #6 -- and to be on the safe side, avoid Cruz Views altogether. The place was a dump. Our condo was dirty (floors I did not want to be barefoot on) and in very poor condition. There was a skylight that was so cracked, rusted and covered in grime that no light actually came through. When I opened one of the kitchen cabinets the door fell off. There was one futon to sit on and that was it for furniture in the living area. The bathroom was nasty and the linens and towels were ratty and bleach-stained. None of the unit's outside lights worked (which was disturbing since the rental agent told us there had been break-ins in the area lately). The beach chairs provided for our use were broken.Upon arriving and realizing what a huge disappointment the condo was, Caribbean Villas was no help. They rudely told us that we were stuck there and there was nothing they could do. We asked that they at least repair the outside lights and the broken cabinets and they assured us that the maintenance person would be there that afternoon. Well, we were there for five days and no one ever fixed these things.The worst part was that the condo completely ran out of water (or else it was caused by some kind of major plumbing problem) 48 hours into our stay. Literally, not a drop of running water. It was the weekend so we called the "emergency" number that Caribbean Villas had provided and left and message. And then, hours later, left another message. And then, the next day, had to call a THIRD time (having had no response). By the time they fixed it we had been without running water for more than 24 hours. So much for the "first-class around the clock guest and maintenance service" Caribbean Villas boasts about all over their website.Bottom line, Cruz Views #6 was a complete ripoff and in my mind Caribbean Villas lacks any credibility. We loved the island of St. John but if we return we will be finding accomodations through another agency.
