My husband and I stayed at The Breakers for our 10th Anniversary. I have hesitated in writing my review bc I don't know how to put into words the perfection of this property. I did not believe a trip could top our honeymoon but this trip did!
I will start with the only thing we did not like and that was leaving the driveway (and leaving at the end of our stay!). The home is located between a small hill on one side and a curve on the other. The road is not very busy, but the limited visibility made us a little nervous to pull onto the road. I basically stood outside of the Jeep and listened for cars and waved my husband out when I was pretty sure no cars were coming. Now to all the good stuff...
This property is gorgeous and breathtaking just like the island it is built on. The drive from the airport along the north shore is the perfect start to your stay in paradise! Once we arrived at the villa, I felt like I was living in an HGTV show property for the week. The sound of the waves just outside the windows was so soothing. Also, the birds sang all day and there were little butterflies everywhere. In the afternoon the sun reflected off the ocean in a way that looked like a pathway to heaven. It was glorious! Then, there were the gorgeous sunsets from the balcony in the evening. We have stayed in many luxurious all inclusive properties and this was actually our first time renting a villa and car and being on our own outside of the states. It was a fun adventure!
This property gives you privacy and solitude. While it is a perfectly designed property for two couples to enjoy, don't feel guilty for renting it alone! How often can you escape the world with your significant other? This property would be lovely to escape to for a creative work project as well (artists, etc.). The beauty of it will bring out the best in you.
While this property gives your privacy, it is very close to Cane Bay and great restaurants. The island also has a very reasonable food delivery service so you can enjoy an awesome meal in the comfort of the villa. We opened all the sliders and windows and enjoyed the breeze, the waves and sunset one evening with a delicious meal from one of the restaurants.
The home was very comfortable and you can tell a lot of thought went into maximizing every square inch of the property. The beds are super comfy (I am picky) and the kitchen is well stocked. The pool is the perfect size for 2-4 people to enjoy and was warm. There are 4 lounge chairs outside and a couple rafts to float on in the pool. The pool gets morning shade and afternoon sun. There was even a grill to cook on outside. (Note: there are wasps and bees around the property/island so take an Epi-Pen if you are allergic. We did not get stung but they were present.)
Overall, my favorite memory was floating in the pool one afternoon while singing a song. The birds flew from the utility poles and from across the street, landed on the outdoor bathroom's roof and started singing back to me. It is a memory I will cherish among many others made that week. You will not regret renting this home and visiting this island. I cannot wait to return! Do it!
Great condition (near new), well-designed floor plan with communal and private spaces, perfect for two couples plus room for 2 more people if needed. Amazing views from all three levels and pool/patio area. Feels safe and secure with locked privacy gate. Well outfitted kitchen with upgraded appliances. High quality beds and linens. Watch the tide pools fill from all three patios while listening to the waves breaking on the shore just below you! Feels remote but only a minute from great snorkeling and excellent dining, 20 minute drive to Christiansted or the airport. Already looking forward to our next visit!
We stayed here for one week with another couple and had a very relaxing, wonderful time. The home is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Wonderful gourmet kitchen with all the best appliances. Two master suites with their own large bathrooms. Wonderful views from every window in the house. Swimming pool next to the house is Great for a relaxing plunge in the late afternoon. The Internet service was excellent. And the TVs were very large and nice. However with the beautiful views and fantastic lanais there is no need to be on the Internet or on the TV! Several great restaurants are short walk or a short car ride away. Cane bay beach is about half mile walk. The owners have included beach towels and beach lounge chairs - we just threw them in the car and we were ready to go. There is a nice hiking nearby to a tidal pool. Everything was in perfect working order. What a great place to be in Paradise!
a few days of island life at its best, still in the U.S.A. but the laid back island life. The Breakers is a beautiful modern home looking out in to the open waters of the Caribbean Sea. Obviously, a trip like this you want to be at the beach, bars, diving or exploring, but this house was amazing, high end kitchen with all the utensils to put on a full dinner, expansive unobstructed views of the ocean, sleep to the sounds of the waves crashing, walk a few steps over to cane bay and lay out and enjoy the crystal clear and calm waters and grab a drink or some food from eats and relax. I also highly recommend scuba diving in St Croix! The owners were responsive to our inquiries and it was a great relaxing and fun few days!
I don't normally write reviews but couldn't hold back on this one. What a marvellous week my husband and I have had in this beautiful villa. So clean and has all you could ask for in this lovely home right on the shore of the Caribbean Sea. Comfortable beds, lovely clean pool, ( which we used a lot after long days sightseeing). Scuba diving, Cruzan Rum tours and lots of great restaurants. We could not have picked a better villa for our vacation, and we most certainly will be back! (We will be inviting friends to join us next time for sure:). We are sorry to be leaving this island tomorrow. Thank you to the owners and the wonderful staff at Vacation St. Croix!
