“Best vacation stay ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

What a magnificent location, and what magnificent hosts! John and Adele have created a wonderful villa experience, from the great rooms and the extra amenities, to the super island drink specialities at happy hour. This is in addition to the fantastic location right on the north shore of St. Croix, just a few hundred feet from the Christopher Columbus landing site.

St. Croix is already a vacation paradise. Villa Margarita is that wonderful cherry on top. It would be worth the money at twice the price.

Room Tip: If you can get the downstairs studie, you can enjoy the cross breeze from the East as you sleep, and...

I concur with “perfect” and every other positive description made about this place. It is truly a gem. I can’t believe how awesome Adele and John are; they’ve thought of everything and are such generous, hospitable hosts! The property is beautiful, serene, and relaxing, inside and out. The room was incredible; we woke up to the sound of the ocean and a wonderful breeze every morning. I am so glad I didn’t stay elsewhere, I can’t imagine having missed the opportunity to stay here and the wonderful week we had. Adele and John know the best restaurants, activities and beaches and are so willing to share their experiences with visitors, it was great. I’ve had a lot of good vacations and always try to stay at a small Inn or B&B type of place, and I’ve never had such an awesome experience. The place is a little hard to find if you are not familiar with the area, so make sure you don’t forget those easy directions Adele will send you.  It was so worth finding and we can’t wait to go back someday!

Room Tip: The Studio Suite has a wonderful cross breeze & the better kitchen counter space. It also walks...

Perfect! That's the word that comes to mind for our Christmas trip to beautiful St. Croix and the hospitality shown to us by Adele and John. Everything we needed was right there! The views from both bedrooms were incredible. We never needed the air conditioners. The breezes and sounds of the surf lulled us to sleep each night. Adele and John are the perfect hosts, truly welcoming and helpful in every way. We'll be back..in fact, we didn't want to leave. Thank you!

Our recent week-long stay at Villa Margarita was one of the very best vacation experiences my husband and I have ever had. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed with open arms. Owners Adele and John did everything possible to make us feel at home—from providing us with restaurant and activity recommendations, to lively conversations during Happy Hour at their handcrafted tiki bar, to complete privacy when desired. Our suite in the beautifully appointed and impeccably clean villa boasted a stunning beachfront view from all rooms—a full kitchen and bath, a very comfortable bedroom, and a large living-dining area complete with satellite TV. For our comfort, we could choose between air conditioning or cool and constant sea breezes. Each night we were awed by the view from our balcony of a magnificent rising full moon, as well as views of the lights on some of the surrounding Virgin Islands (Spanish, US, and British), and the days we spent touring the island and snorkeling the reefs right in front of our room.

It was because of the relaxing and accommodating ambience Adele and John provided that St. Croix, and Villa Margarita in particular, has a special place in our hearts.

Room Tip: All rooms have outstanding views!

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...

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.
