Who am I to spoil Villa Margarita's perfect rating? In fact, this well-maintained three-unit villa near the mouth of the Salt River, on St. Croix's beautiful North Shore, provides good value for Caribbean travelers. Pros: It is right on the (rocky) beach, with a constant breeze and a fabulous view stretching to St. Thomas; it is centrally located to funky Christiansted, the swanky Carambola, the Wall at Cane Bay, and the La Reine Chicken Shack (our favorite fast food hot spot); the Villa comes with a pretty and very private pool; each suite is outfitted with everything you forgot or decided to leave home (sunblock, shampoo, conditioner, beach towels, beach chairs, beach reading, DVD's, Dominican coffee, Crucian rum, and enough electrical appliances to overload the circuits of most hotels); Adele provides reliable information about what to see and do; each room comes with a kitchenette, satellite TV, and a DVD player. Cons: counterspace in our kitchenette was very limited, and a toasteroven passes for a major appliance; island foodstuffs are very expensive, at least in the supermarkets, so don't count on cooking many dinners; the Villa Margarita beach is rocky; you'll need rubber-soled shoes to walk to the adjoining beach or an inexpensive rental car to drive to, say, Davis Beach at the Carambola. But there are small demerits. St. Criox is a lovely island. Villa Margarita is an excellent accommodation on the island.

Room Tip: The one- and two-bedroom suites are on the upper floor and have better views. The studio is on the lower floor with a walkout to the pool.

Thank you for your excellent review.
Your right, the counter space in the West suite is a little small. Next time you visit stay in the East suite or studio, they have bigger kitchenettes in them.
The beach in front changes with the storms, right before you came a storm had pushed alot of broken up coral & rocks onto the beach. The last couple of days we have had big waves so it has taken alot of the broken coral & rocks off the beach.
Hope you will be able to visit us again.

You know how some places smell like they're trying to cover up a mildew smell with lysol? I noticed as soon as we walked in that this place doesn't have a smell - other than the fresh outdoors. We really feel lucky to have found this place and doubt there's anything better than Villa Margarita for couples. We stayed in the 1 bedroom suite and, with a good arm, the balcony is a stone's throw from the ocean. We left the A/C off and had the 2 sliding doors open to look at and listen to the waves 24 hours a day. The views from every room were spectacular. Even the rain was an experience from our balcony setting. - and John and Adele - what great, personable hosts - thought of every detail to make our stay pleasant. We saw all 3 suites and they were equally adorable with decorations/furnishings to fit the island style. You can't go wrong with Villa Margarita and you'll sleep like you've never slept before.

Villa Margarita is a great place to stay. We stayed for a week in June and scuba dived with Anchor Dive which we also highly recommend. Very good diving.

Adele & John were wonderful hosts. The inn has a 2 brm, 1 brm, and a studio, all with a super ocean view and balcony. The kitchen has everything you need, just like home. We had the 1 brm, however, the studio is also a good option for 2 adults. Nice pool and John was building a outdoor bar while we were there. Adele is a great host and gave us many tips and recommendations. Happy hour was also enjoyable. There is a lot to do on the island, beautiful mountains and countryside. We are looking forward to our return trip. You will need a car to enjoy the island.

My wife and I stayed in the studio suite at Villa Margarita for eight days and nights in mid-June. We felt at home there in a way you rarely feel when traveling, falling asleep every night to the sounds of waves crashing, making breakfast in the suite’s kitchen, and having meals on our terrace, with a stunning view of the sea. While there we never lacked for comfort, and we relaxed with the seclusion and unhurried pace that characterizes life on island. John and Adele gave us many great recommendations for things to do and places to eat, and were incredibly fun to hang out with during happy hour! If you are looking for a romantic place that is very down to earth, Villa Margarita is a great choice.

As a couple who loves traveling to tropical islands we picked Villa Margarita over boutique hotels we typically lean towards because of the rave reviews and we are so glad we made that decision! Villa Margarita lived up to every expectation we had after reading all of the excellent reviews! Adele and John are wonderful hosts and the bottle of Cruzan cocount rum in our room upon arrival in addition to our "arrival cocktails" prepared by Adele were welcoming, refreshing and a perfect way to start our vacation! We stayed in the one-bedroom suite and immediately loved it! There are lovely views of the ocean in every room (even the bathroom!) within the suite. The suite was very clean and comfortable. Between the bed being soft and plush and the sound of the ocean waves, we slept like babies each night. (I must say though that the next time we stay on island, we'll be taking up in the studio. It's on the main floor and offers direct access to the pool, shares the patio in the back of the house and has a larger patio table to eat on. (Not a huge deal, but we loved the cozy feel of the studio after peeking in it since it was vacant during our stay.)
The weather was picture perfect. We certainly were very lucky as the day we arrived was the first day it didn't rain in 3 weeks! We had perfect weather every day of our vacation.
Our favorite places to eat were Rowdy Joe's, Eat @ Cane Bay (we ate at both of these places 3 times each), Duggans Reef and Bluewater Terrace. Amazing food and drinks at each location! Turtles Deli in Fredericksted was yummy as well! The Tropical sandwich was HUGE...my husband and I shared it!
A few highlights of our trip were diving with Anchor Dive Center (located 3 minutes away from the Villa), Carambola Spa (located about 15 minutes west of the Villa), snorkeling, hiking Point Udall to get down to Jack and Isacc's Bay for the most pristine beaches and breathtaking views anywhere on island! But we definitely can't leave out paddleboarding! That was my most favorite water activity! We went out with Bill at Paddlesurf St. Croix who immediately made us feel at ease as he patiently gave us a lesson on paddleboarding before my husband and I jumped on and took off! So much fun, I can't stress it enough! I wish that we hadn't waited until the last full day of our trip to do that because we would have gone out a couple more times. Definitely a must do next time we're on island.
I B Designs downtown Christiansted is a must for jewelry lovers! Beautiful pieces and a friendly staff that explain the meaning of each piece to you!
We loved our stay here on St. Croix. So much to see and do for an active couple like us! However, beaching it or hanging by the pool with fruity rum drinks suited us too. There is something for everyone here! We can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: Studio is on main floor w/ direct access to pool.
