The Villa Madeleine is a bunch of individual condos (homes) on a hillside that are privately owned and then rented out. They all look the same and have the same layout. They all have individual pools that are fairly private. Most of them are 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom. The second bedroom is in a separate structure as is the second bathroom, so not ideal for real small children because they could access pool area without your knowing even though the two structures are VERY close.
Most of the condos have a great view of the ocean off in the distance. They are not on the water, but provide a nice ocean view. The condos are located on the East end of the island, quite a ways from Christiansted. You should rent a vehicle if you are staying here.
The condos are starting to show a little age. They are still nice, but don't expect perfection. Seeing as they are owned by private party, all decorations, beds, kitchen items, and the like vary from unit to unit as does the view, parking, and condition. Also, don't be surprised if when you show up, if your unit is lacking even some basics like TP or paper towels which has happened to us.
There are some bugs and geckos, but not any worse than anywhere else. The landscaping is always nice, and the units are in a gated area.
Some units have window air conditioners and others have central air, but there is almost always a great breeze here, They all share cable and internet. While most have TV's, some are in better condition than others. The internet here is VERY slow and very unreliable. Don't expect fast speeds or any connection at all from time to time.
There is a tennis court on grounds at the bottom of the hill which is quite a hike from the top units. The tennis court is in fair condition. There is only one court and no lights.
The Divi Casino is at the bottom of the hill and is not a bad place to see. It has a cool lit up dome at night.
The kitchens are very small, but adequate for making small meals. Again, the kitchen items will vary from unit to unit. Most of them have a small microwave, full size fridge, small oven, and a small dishwasher. A big plus is that the units have a small washer and dryer in a closet so you can do some laundry too.
The showers in the condos are awesome. They are tiled and open air feeling. The water pressure leaves something to be desired and the hot water is solar.
Most of these units face the Divi Casino, but others do face Buck Island if that is your preference.
The prices for rental vary depending on the unit you are looking at.
This is a nice place, but remember that the units are very close together, and noise does travel.
TIP- Be very careful on the tile around the whole property, While it does look nice, it is VERY slippery!
