About Kent Vreeland
My wife and I love to travel! We work very hard...just so we can spend all of our money on traveling! We have been all over the world, but what is nearest and dearest to our hearts are tropical destinations. Of all the places we have traveled together, St. Croix was the place that we truly fell in love with. We love to swim, snorkel, SCUBA dive (St. Croix has some of the best diving anywhere), sail, eat, drink, shop, eat and drink some more...St. Croix has it all!
Kent Vreeland purchased this Villa in 1999
Why Kent Vreeland chose Estate Cane Bay
We visited St. Croix for the first time in 1998. We had already been to many of the Caribbean Islands, as well as many other tropical destinations, so we thought we would give St. Croix a try. We invited my parents to come with us and rented a villa not too far from where Villa Dawn is located. One day during this fateful trip, after my Dad and I probably had one too many Rum drinks, I sat looking out at the view and dreamed of one day owning a home of my own on St. Croix. I told my wife that I had been calculating....if we used all of our savings we just might be able to buy a house on St. Croix and rent it enough to pay the bills. She said, 'That's a nice idea but I don't think so!' The next morning, as I was sitting out on the deck nursing a terrible headache, she came over and said, 'You know, I've been thinking, you're probably right, we could do it' to which I replied 'Do what?' I didn't remember the conversation at all! Several months later we were on a Caribbean Cruise with Dawn's Mom and St. Croix was one of the Ports of Call. We decided to look at some real estate...just for the fun of it. By noon that day we found Villa Dawn, a mere shadow of what it is today, and put in an offer. The next day we were docked on St. Thomas. We called the real estate agent on St. Croix from a phone on the beach. 'Did they accept our offer?' we asked. YES! was the reply! OH...MY...GOSH! WHAT DID WE DO! The rest is history...we now own three vacation rental properites on St. Croix!
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Dawn is located in one of the most beautiful areas of St. Croix. The views are as good as any I have seen in the world! It is within a short walk of Cane Bay Beach, 4 waterfront restaurants, horseback riding, kayak rentals, SCUBA diving and snorkeling. It is an awesome place for a couple wanting some privacy and romance, as well as a great place for multiple couples or a family vacation. Everyone just loves the place!

Great view and location in Cane Bay. The villa was well stocked with all amenities. We had 7 people in our party and the house was a perfect size. The AC was a little disappointing but at least it was available. Just not very cool at night even with the fans going. Would recommend key code locks instead of having to keep up with keys but that's the only recommendations that I would have.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Dawn! It does have a great view and is in a really great location on the island!
I'm sorry that you didn't feel cool enough from the central A/C. We do monitor the interior temperature of the villa via a Wifi thermostat, and didn't get an alert that it was unusually warm. Generally, our guests set it at 74-76 degrees and find that comfortable.
We hope that you enjoyed the villa enough to visit again some time! All the best! Kent and Dawn
We have considered key code locks, but with the harsh climate of the tropics we are concerned about reliability of them. So, we stick with "ols school" keys :)
Wonderful Family/Group Home!
We've stayed on St Croix many times but first time at Villa Dawn as we now had 10 family members. Excellent location, amazing views, spacious home for our 10 people, and terrific amenities are a few of the highlights of this rental. Everything was well thought out as the kitchen, living room, deck and pool areas all had comfortable seating and tables for everyone. Very clean and well tended property where you feel 'at home'. The owners are very responsive to questions and helpful it many vacation ideas. A terrific find and highly reccomend Villa Dawn!
Hi! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Dawn! We are glad you liked the villa as much as we do! :) I hope that you will be able to return to Villa Dawn some day. If you do, you will find it better than ever, as each year we make improvements of some kind to the villa and the property. All the best...Kent and Dawn
Love Love Love!!!
We have stayed here probably 10 or so years. This is the ONLY place we stay when coming to St Croix. We like to come once per year. The house is well equipped, we cook many meals in the house and have never not had something we needed. Beds are comfortable and the pool and view are lovely. Owners are extremely responsive. You can walk to Cane Bay Beach and we of course love to eat at Off the Wall and "Eat @ Cane Bay" (also withing walking distance). I cannot say enough great things about this house and the owners.
Hi Karyn! We are so glad that you love Villa Dawn enough to write a nice review and come back again and again! We love having you as a guest! You can rest assured that each time you stay at Villa Dawn we will have done some upgrades that will make it better and better!
All the best! Kent and Dawn
All was good, the house had a home feel. The location was a bit of a terrain to get to, but once we discovered the alternative route it wasn’t so bad to get to Christiansted and the East side of the Island. It was clean and had central air. Overall a very nice place to stay in STX.
Location was perfect! Quiet and secluded but close to the beach.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Dawn! The location is pretty awesome! :) Kent and Dawn
Amazing property and St. Croix location for a family vacation!!!!
