Rent a Villa to Vacation on St. Croix!
St. Croix Vacation Villas &
Villa Madeleine ~ Private Pool
A Piece of Paradise!
arrived in St. Croix, and after a short drive (about 30 min.) found
ourselves at Villa Madeliene, and tucked away in this island development
is Calypso Sol. Overlooking Teague Bay, the place is truly a piece of
paradise. As we walked into the unit, we found a very spacious living room
with comfortable couches and a wonderful recliner for those who need a
power nap after a day at the beach. A compact but very functional kitchen
equipped with all the conveniences needed for a meal, make living in a
breeze. The main house offers a large bedroom with bath and an open tiled
shower. Walking through a set of double doors, we are greeted with an
unobstructed view of the ocean and off in the distance Buck Island, a
national park. Our guest bedroom was off the main quarters, but offered a
very comfortable king bed and open shower, making it very pleasurable and
restful. Separating the main quarters from our secondary living quarters
is a large partially covered patio, hosting a fabulous swimming pool. This
area is perfect for relaxing, lounging around, and working on a suntan.
Both the main and secondary quarters are equipped with air-conditioning,
and while it may be necessary during the day, at night, we opened the
shutters on the screened windows, and found the cooling effect of the
trade winds very comfortable. The owners have thought of everything one
might need for a relaxing stay at Calypso Sol. We met Elvin, the pool
maintenance man, who gave me some insight regarding where the best fishing
spots were and great advice on how to be successful. It was fun just
visiting with him to get a feel for the island’s culture and
recommendations of the more popular restaurants. The island offers some
amazing food, and our favorite would be Duggan’s Reef (at the bottom of
the hill from Calypso) and the whisky lobster. We can’t wait until our

The Perfect St. Croix Villa...
Calypso Sol is the perfect villa for a vacation on St. Croix. It is
beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean. The villa has several
amenities including a well-equipped kitchen, sliding screen doors, beach
chairs, beach towels and even snorkeling equipment, which was very helpful
and appreciated. It is incredible to have a private pool right off the
living room and the two bedrooms which my kids, grandchildren, and I
loved. The view of the Caribbean Sea and Buck Island is amazing. Calypso
Sol is close to many restaurants and beaches. The villa staff and Villa
Madeleine reservations manager were all extremely accommodating. We would
definitely book again.

Perfect in so many ways!
Our stay at Calypso Sol was wonderful! The owners thought of everything to
make our stay perfect! From the nice updates in kitchen and baths,
comfortable beds, bedding, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable
furnishings, 2 blue tooth speakers, beach chairs, coolers, extra beach
towels, snorkel gear, terrace furniture, the list goes on and on! Anne,
the property manager is great to work with and was very helpful as it was
clear she loves St Croix and the villas. Elvin, pool maintenance was fun
to chat with while we were at the villa (they come once per week). Macho
(spelling?) from the security guard hut was very helpful with questions we
had about area and complex) and Charles stopped by to introduce himself in
case we had any maintenance issues during our stay. The views to Buck
island are amazing from the villa! All exterior doors have retractable
screen doors and we never used the air conditioners in living area or
bedrooms. This unit was tucked away within Villa Madeliene and it was a
very pleasant short walk to villa. It felt like you were walking through a
botanical garden to the villa and while taking a morning walk! When we
were at the villa we spent most of our time lounging on the terrace in the
comfortable chaises and chairs, dangling our feet in the pool, swimming or
floating on a raft. Writing this makes me want to return! Ofcourse, we did
not spend all our time at the villa, although our 79 year old father
enjoyed hanging back a time or two while relaxing with a view. We visited
some local restaurants and always had a great meal. Duggans with
exceptional service and meal while listening to the waves. Cheeseburgers
was a great place to go to our first night after a long day of traveling -
good food, wonderful music which was a nice welcome to the island. We
picked up pizza one night from Castaways and while waiting we listened to
great music... and went back another night for bingo. Super fun! Divi
Carribean BBQ night was fun seeing the Mocko Jumbie and local dance group.
Went back to their beach for snorkeling. Rainbow beach and beach bar...
can't say enough about this terrific beach, bar and food. Eat at Cane Bay,
a favorite every time we have been to the island... a must stop for us,
Popped into Christiansted for shopping and restaurants. Took our family to
Buck Island with Blackbeard tour and had a good snorkeling experience.
Walking along the beach on Buck Island we saw sea turtles in the water and
Dolphins by boat. Took the family to Point Udal for pictures. We were
there a week and did not have time to do everything we wanted to do! This
was our 4th time visiting St Croix...we will be back! And, the villa will
be top on our place to stay or recommend to others! Thank you for sharing
your villa with us!

What a great place to stay!! My wife and I
stayed here for a week during our honeymoon, and we loved every second of
it. It is completely private and extremely clean. The entire villa is air
conditioned with the ability to turn the air off and open up all the
windows. Don't like bugs that s fine they have screen that cover all the
doors to allow as much air flow as possible. The kitchen is perfect you
are able to make full meals and not feel like you have to eat out for
every meal. The pool is beautiful with a great view. The bathrooms are
nice as well, towels are provided for both the beach and showering. All
around a great time and will definitely be returning to stay here and
visit the island again. It felt like a home away from home, very warm
feeling. If you have the opportunity to stay here, you have too!!

Thank you so much for all
your assistance in the planning of our recent visit to St Croix. We
thoroughly enjoyed our week at Calypso Sol, we loved the location and it
had everything (and more) that we could want or need for our stay.
We would not hesitate to recommend this villa for anyone considering a
trip to the island.
It was so helpful having
Charles meet us at the airport & leading the way to the villa. It would
have been a real challenge trying to find our way after dark! The
car rental was good, the jeep a late model in great condition.
first visited St Croix approximately 40 years ago, our last visit was
about 20 years ago. After this visit I know it won’t be so long
Thank you, Arloa T. July 2016
