About Dino

My wife, Patti, and I live on the water in New York and we have a villa on the water in Cape Coral, Florida, too. We love the water and love to visit the villa when it is not being rented to vacationers. We have had great success and have made many a vacationer happy with Villa Foster, our Florida home (www.villafoster.com), so while on a recent trip to the Caribbean, we decided that it would be a lot of fun to have another getaway that offers a completely different and more unique experience as a change of pace. Then, since we liked it so much, we decided that it only made sense to share that experience with our guests, too. Thus, Blue Thalassa at Villa Madeleine was born.

Dino purchased this villa in 2013

Why Dino chose St. Croix

Blue Thalassa - a villa with it's very own private pool, situated in the gated community of Villa Madeleine, offering well manicured grounds and amazing views of both the sea and the mountain. It is very unique and I do not know of any other property that can offer a similar experience.

Beautiful as the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week on St Croix and our stay at Blue Thalassa. The very private pool is beautiful and was used every day. It's great that every room opens to the pool area. We were met at the airport by the property manager Hortencia who made sure we got our rental car, stopped with us to pick up groceries and got us settled in at the villa.

The half day trip to Buck Island was a great excursion. We enjoyed the restaurants, including Savant in Christiansted, Duggans near the villa and Turtle Deli in Fredericksted.

The villa is very nice with 2 beautiful bathrooms and an upgraded kitchen with everything needed for a stay.

Blue Thalassa was great!

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from ten days at Blue Thalassa in the Villa Madeleine complex on the east end of St. Croix. We were extremely pleased with the property. It is well equipped and well maintained and the gated community provides good security. The private pool is delightful and truly private. (It could be a problem for families with very young children since it is so close to the living areas but for adults or older kids, it is perfect.) Owner Dino was extremely helpful and even had someone meet us at the airport, lead us to the grocery store and then on to the villa for a quick orientation and hand over of the keys. A very fine welcome. The beach within walking distance is not great but there are lovely beaches just a short drive away. It is also very close to Duggan's Reef, probably the best restaurant on the island. We would highly recommend it and hope to return.

Just what I needed ...

  • 5 of 5

Just what I needed ... an escape from winter weather. This property and location suited my party perfectly. Spent 1 week here and never ran the A/C as the onshore sea breezes were great everyday.

Everything about the villa was as expected. This is the second time renting from this owner and every communication or transaction was timely, informative and helpful. The owner, Dino, is a consummate professional. My only regret is that he does not have other properties available for rent.

For a relatively small island, there are so many places that we did not get a chance to explore and enjoy. Will definitely spend minimum of 10-days here next time ... and yes there will be a next time.

Owner's Response: Hi Kim, I know that after visiting our other holiday getaway, Villa Foster in Cape Coral, Florida, this represents a more exotic experience and we are so glad that you liked it. We look forward to your returning to either property in the future and, when visiting Blue Thalassa in St. Croix, one week is truly great but you are definitely wise to spend more time if it is at all possible. There is just too much to see and do and often times my guests get melancholy when it is time for them to go home. Thanks again! -Dino

Excellent Accomodation with Private Pool

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of four adults who stayed in January. We were met at the airport by the caretaker, Hortensia who was very kind, and helpful. We rented our car, and Hortensia guided us to the local grocery store and waited while we shopped! Hortensia guided us to the villa, and explained where everything was, and gave us her phone number if we needed anything.

The villa kitchen is well stocked, and we ate the majority of our meals here. There is a gas grill with a side burner located on the pool deck. We never needed the air-conditioning as there is a constant breeze coming in . Blender drinks were a breeze while enjoying the pool, and the layout of the villa accomodates privacy for two couples quite nicely.

The location of the villa is great, there are many nearby beaches that we explored, Tamarind Reef, Duggans Beach and the beach on the bay across from Christiansted Harbor were all very different and we enjoyed all of them. We chartered a half day off shore fishing trip and caught a 38 pound Bull Mahi that we shared with the captain and crew. We later cooked the Mahi at the villa, a great day!

I truly recommend a stay at Blue Thalassa, it is charming and a very comfortable villa. We really fell in love with St. Croix and we're hoping to return very soon!

Amazing St. Croix Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a weeks stay at this Villa and had a fabulous time. The description of the villa, etc. was spot on. We enjoyed the private pool (including the rafts, ball and beach towels), the gas grill, and the patio table for eating our meals. The kitchen had exactly what we needed and everything was clean and well-maintained. Hortensia was our escort and contact and she was always available to answer questions. Her customer service skills are excellent! We sailed to Buck Island and found our way to the Ha'Penny and Chenay Bay beaches. The beaches are beautiful with few people so it's as if you have a private beach! I would highly recommend St. Croix and this villa! Thank you to Rob for helping us find this little piece of heaven on earth!

I believe that we offer a little more than most and so I thank you for appreciating our efforts. Hortensia has been a blessing for us and, as all my guests discover, she is truly a very valuable asset. Until your return... have a great 2016!

Beautiful Villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Blue Thalassa on 7/18/15. Everything about this villa is as it's stated and exactly how it looks in the pictures. We LOVED it!!! Extremely clean and had everything we needed. Pool was so relaxing to come back to at the end of a hot day and despite the warm air temps, the pool water was cool and refreshing. We did a full day trip with Big Beards out to Buck Island (I would only do a half-day next time as the beach BBQ was a waste of time IMO). Horseback riding with Cruzan Cowgirls - awesome!! Loved the north side of the island! Dino (owner) was extremely helpful and always timely responsive with great suggestions. We ate twice at Duggans Reef and twice at Blue Water Terrace -- both awesome, but Duggans was by far my favorite! Also ate at Cane Bay and Rhythms at Rainbow Beach - great drinks! Also hiked to Jack & Isaac Beach and Carambola Tide Pools. We are a family of 4 (children ages 16 & 12). We all had a great time and never got bored! I would highly recommend this villa and would definitely come back and stay here again!

Car: recommended

Villa Madeleine's 'Blue Thalassa' is built into the mountainside (located within a gated community) and has it's very own personal and private pool... really private ;-) Your view is southward towards the Divi Resort and Casino, allowing your pool to maintain maximum sun exposure throughout most of the day. From your lanai, you will simultaneously see the beautiful turquoise blue of the Caribbean and the splendid magnificence of the adjacent mountain. It doesn't get much better than that! You may walk to the beach at the Divi Resort or drive to one of the many other beaches in the area. All beaches are open to the public, so feel free to explore any where that you like. Tennis courts are on the premises, for when you can tear yourself away from the splendid view that Blue Thalassa has to offer.
