Nestled on a hillside in Estate Teague Bay on St. Croix’s desirable and residential East End, Villa Carinya is truly an exceptional property high enough on the hill for a rare view of both the north and south shores, yet low enough to hear the crashing of the ocean waves.
This contemporary West Indian style home boost high ceilings with exposed beams in every room. An abundance of windows allow for plenty of natural light, and create frames for the spectacular views that surround this home.
Here you will experience casual elegance and comfort. A custom built kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops comes fully equipped for your cooking needs. There is a one bedroom master suite on the first floor, and, up a spiral staircase, the second bedroom suite.
The Caribbean lifestyle is all about outdoor living, and this home boosts a large deck that is partly covered to create a comfortable shaded lounging area, and partly uncovered for sun bathing during the day, and star gazing at night. There is an outdoor cooking area with a built-in professional gas grill, an HD Satellite TV, and a SONOS/Bose sound system, offering hours of outdoor cooking, dining, and entertaining possibilities. A cast iron chandelier provides plenty of light for reading or playing games, and directional lights over the gas grill make evening cookouts a joy! The deck enjoys almost constant trade winds that cool and caress you.
Villa Carinya is situated on the eastern slope of Meggie Hill directly overlooking the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, and the many boats moored at St. Croix Yacht Club. The villa offers panoramic northern views of Buck Island, and on clear days, the islands of St. Thomas, St. John, Tortola, and Virgin Gorda on the distant horizon. To the east, lush green hills stretch up to the Contessa’s Castle. The southern shore with its shades of blue and green fade into endless ocean.
Villa Carinya is the perfect home away from home – whether you are looking for a private romantic refuge, or a relaxing vacation get-away! The home provides a superb opportunity to enjoy some of the island’s most beautiful panoramic views in a secluded and peaceful oasis.
About the Owners: We are a couple residing in the Northeastern United States. We purchased and renovated Villa Carinya in 2013/2014 to serve as a relaxing tropical island get-away and a comfortable home away from home.
Why We Bought This Property: We first visited St. Croix in 2013 and fell in love with the beauty of the island, the quaint historic towns, and the fact that St. Croix is so much less congested and touristy than many other places in the Caribbean. St. Croix is still a place where you can discover your own beach, and spend hours on it without seeing a single person. Yet, beaches with watersports and amenities are only a short drive away. St. Croix has a rich history, and the landscape is dotted with ruins and landmarks waiting to be explored. As avid snorkelers and divers, we were impressed by the diversity of marine life and wide variety of dive sites. From the spectacular snorkeling or wall dives in Cane Bay, ship wrecks at Butler Bay, and exceptional snorkeling and diving at the Frederiksted Pier! St. Croix has so much to offer!
Unique Benefits: Villa Carinya is the perfect escape for one or two couples, or a small family. It’s a cozy and peaceful hillside property; a true hide-away with panoramic views of Buck Island and the Caribbean Sea, surrounded by lush green hills. It’s high enough to enjoy a rare view both the north and south shore, yet low enough to hear the ocean waves. The villa is located in a desirable and safe neighborhood, with great neighbors. Unlike the sometimes crowded and noisy condo/villa communities, Villa Carinya offers a quiet and private setting without the feeling of being remote.
The large outdoor partly shaded deck is perfect for sunbathing, cooking and entertaining, or just relaxing soaking up the almost constant breeze.
The surrounding area offers miles of back roads for walking/running. While the closest beach, Duggan’s Reef is only minutes down the hill by car. The East End Marine park, a few miles down the road, has some of the best and most secluded beaches on the island with some great snorkeling.
The large outdoor partly shaded deck gives hours of relaxing opportunities. There are great backroads for morning walks, constant trade winds, and so much beauty! Less than a 5 minute drive is Duggan’s Reef, the closest beach, and restaurant/bar. There is access to some of the best and most secluded beaches on the island, plus snorkeling, paddle boarding, kite surfing, golf, Divi Resort and Casino, miniature golf, and casual and fine dining.
