Perched nearly eight hundred feet above sea level, on the north face of Blue Mountain, "The Villa on the Edge" is in a class of it's own.

The one hundred and eighty degree, aerial view from the veranda is exhilarating!
On a clear day it's possible to see; St. John, St. Thomas, Virgin Gorda, and Puerto Rico, while listening to sounds of the surf down below.




Nestled against the mountain, this stately villa is cooled by tropical breezes. Located near St. Croix's rain forest, "Villa on the Edge" is within hiking distance to Cane Bay, which is host to one of the most beautiful white sand beaches on the island. Some of the best snorkeling and diving in the Caribbean done here for your discovery.


"Villa on the Edge" contains nearly 4000 square feet of living area including it's two-story seventy foot long covered verandas. The villa is further enhanced with a private sun drenched swimming pool and moonlit whirlpool spa. Spectacular views can be enjoyed while sunning or cooking out on the villa's large patio, complete with lounges and barbecue grill.


The top floor has two king sized bedroom suites with private baths, separated by a large great room which hosts the full sized living, kitchen and dining rooms. All rooms have vaulted cypress ceilings and ceramic tile floors.


Ground floor accommodations include a great room with full kitchen, dinning and living room, plus a king sized bedroom suite with private bath. The villa can accommodate up to ten guests with sleep sofas for additional people.



Caribbean lobster is our favorite. A dinner of "surf and turf" after a hard day at the beach is the perfect way to relax. You can dive for your own lobsters or purchase them from the local fishermen. Annette is holding two large lobsters out on the ground floor veranda of "The Villa on the Edge", St. Croix. The background of the photo is just a sampling of the magnificent view from the villa.



Sue is about to cool off by taking a dip after sunning at Cane Bay beach. Located at the bottom of the hill, below The Villa on the Edge, Cane Bay is great for: sunning, swimming, snorkeling, and diving. A dive shop and two open air beach bar grills are at your beckoning.
