We rented Brimstoke for 3 weeks and it was hard to say goodbye. The first week was a girl’s getaway for me and two friends to celebrate collective momentous birthdays. I loved showing the island to my friends, but we also put aside time to just enjoy the patio and the views. When my friends left, my husband joined me and we spent 2 of the best weeks together that I can remember. This beautiful house and setting allowed my husband to unwind and find his happy place like none other. It is a perfect mid-island location from which to explore. But again we made sure to set time aside to enjoy the patio with the pool, hot tub, and endless views each day. Fantastic trip! We’ve been to St.Croix several times and have always stayed in resorts. Never again!

We enjoyed our stay at Brimstage. Wally, Paul and Marti were very accommodating and always helped us when we had questions. The kitchen is huge, as is the master bedroom. The other two bedrooms were a good size also. The living room area is adorable and comfortable. The outdoor space is fabulous, along with the beautiful views. It’s windy though. Hot tub is great! Plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, coolers. Washer and dryer is a plus. The pool is gorgeous, but it’s cold, but that didn’t bother us as we beached it everyday. I give this property a big thumbs up, A+!!

Wally was great owner to work with. Very responsive both via email and over the phone. Villa was exactly as represented in photos; with the exception of the view being even better. Pool seemed a little cold but once you jump in it’s fine. Wally explained it’s heated using pump and solar panels so it’s the warmest about 2:30 in afternoon if I remember right. This time of year the strong breezes are very evident given the homes elevation; which is responsible for the unbelievable views, particularly to the the North. I spent every morning lounging in chair and staring at the Caribbean Sea to North. Just mesmerizing. We also used the hot tub nearly every night. Hammock got plenty of use as well. We also used the grill most evenings. Kitchen was very well stocked. Master bedroom/bath, living room and kitchen are very large. The other two bedrooms/bath, which are close, but detached from home was nice since our two children are both college age. I love the architecture of the ceilings. The mid island location made virtually everything accessible within 20-25 minutes with exception of far East end (Udall point) about 45 minutes away. It’s worth the drive though!
We stayed at the villa for a week. This was the first time that I can remember that I wasn’t ready to go home and sleep in my own bed. I wish we’d been able to stay longer.
I always ask myself if I would stay here again to rate the VRBO. In this case, we absolutely will. Very highly recommend this villa.

My wife and two daughters stayed at Brimstage I’ve the Christmas holiday. From the time Paul met us at the airport, until we had to unfortunately leave, we had the best time. Family flew in from other parts of the US, and all were jealous of our house and location. You can’t go wrong here, and the trade winds made it much more comfortable! Wally is a great host, and very accommodating. Thank you!

We recently returned from a restful and relaxing stay at Brimstage Estate(Clairmont).
Communication was excellent before and during our stay. Wally the host answered all my questions and even checked in on us during our stay. The property management company was also great to communicate with.
The villa was exactly as you see in pictures. The views are beautiful and when the sun is shining is looks spectacular. There is definitely a breeze and it is great for keeping you cool on a hot day. However at times especially in the evening we did find the breeze a bit much.
The outside of the villa has everything you need...comfy sun loungers, saltwater pool, hot tub, bbq, eating area and of course the relaxing hammock that was great for afternoon naps.
The inside of the villa is also wonderfully equipped. Well stocked kitchen, lots of towels(bath and beach), washer and dryer, nice master bathroom and comfy bed. It was a plus having AC in the bedroom for sleeping at night.
The villa is centrally located. We rented a car and easily drove to restaurants, into Christianstead and Frederickstead and beaches.
The villa is very private and not surrounded by other properties which is a bonus if you are looking for quiet but also if you want to play your music. It's always 5 o'clock somewhere:)
We have stayed at a few villas and this was definitely one of our favourites. We highly recommend it.

My wife and 2 kids (ages 7 and 10) absolutely loved our stay at Brimstage Estate! The views are beautiful and enjoyed from pool and hot tub! The villa is well equipped and the central location is perfect to explore various parts of the island. Wally and the management company are both very responsive and want you to enjoy your stay! Highly recommend Brimstage Estate!!

Villa Brimstage was perfect for our family's recent 11 day vacation in St. Croix. This was our first time to this island, but we've rented many homes on VRBO. My husband and I agree Wally was the best host we've ever encountered. He kept in contact with us before and during our stay without ever feeling overwhelming. He also offered many helpful tips and suggestions for our stay. He was an absolute pleasure to work with.
As for the villa, the views are stunning. We enjoyed gazing across the island in the mornings while sipping coffee and tea, and did the same with cocktails and wine in the evenings. The home is spacious, clean and well-decorated. Our kids (9 & 12) also appreciated having their rooms detached (but very close) to the main house. It gave them a little extra sense of independence and privacy.
Brimstage is well-equipped and Wally provided some items most hosts don't typically offer, such as laundry detergent, hand soap, and plenty of toilet paper. We also enjoyed the pool and hot tub most days, and there is plenty of space on the deck to lounge. It's also breezy on the deck, which keeps away the bugs. That's a plus for me! Another bonus of Brimstage is that it's centrally-located on the island, so it's not a far trip to most areas.
If you are looking to visit St. Croix, don't hesitate to book Brimstage. You won't be disappointed.

Beautiful villa with the best breezes in the Caribbean. The long range view is beautiful day and night. What pure joy it was to sit out on the deck and enjoy all the beauty the island has to offer. Loved hearing the wind blow through the trees, birds chirping away, and the dog barking chain on the island! :).
The villa is stocked with anything you would need(the kitchen is HUGE). The beds are very comfortable., plenty of room for everyone to gather but have individual time as well. Give all the amenities a go...the pool, hot tub, hammock(afternoon naps are the best).
We listened to a few "vintage" CD's(Foreigner, Bad Company, Kenny Chesney) during our stay that brought back happy memories.
Our host Wally, was exceptional. Never intrusive but always provided helpful tips and advise to enjoy our stay at the right time. One day it was cloudy and a bit rainy. Wally suggested it might be a good shopping day! :)
I can't say enough wonderful things about Wally and this villa. I would highly recommend it to anyone considering it for their stay. I can't wait to return.

Everything about our stay at the Clairmont Estate (Brimstage) was marvelous. It's situated in a hilly area, which allows for almost 180 degree breathtaking views (day and night) from the pool/patio area. Our three teenagers had their own cabana while my husband and I were in the main house with our own lovely view of the ocean. The living areas of the house were inviting and comfortable and everyone could find their own place to relax or work (school was still in session for us). The kitchen was well-appointed and also conducive for studying or visiting over breakfast. We all enjoyed the wonderful salt-water pool and sat in the hot tub each evening to watch the lights around the island. Being up high, we had great cooling breezes, but there is A/C for sleeping, if desired. We were centrally located to both major cities and all attractions. We often went into Christiansted for dinner. Wally and the management team were great and very responsive, checking in with us throughout our stay to make sure everything was well. We really appreciate all the personalized suggestions Wally gave us for activities and meals. It was a unique time to go, before the cruise ships return. And, we didn't need a COVID test to return to the mainland, but you will need one to go to the island (the USVI government makes it a very straightforward process). We hope to come back soon!
