I grew up in St. Croix and became a contractor and built Aqua Blue Villa and other homes on the island. I currently live on St. Croix and travel the mainland and other carribbean islands.
Martin Massicott purchased this villa in 2006
After living here for many years and visiting the eastern part of the island, my dream was to own property and build a beautiful villa. This area is unique with it's natural beauty of the carribbean sea and rolling hillsides.
I chose this end of the island to build this villa because it is minutes from Point Udall which is the eastern most point in the U.S.A. There is a sundial known as the Millennium Monument built above Point Udall for the New Year's celebration in 2000. It marks the azimuth of the first U.S. sunrise of that year. The area has breath taking views and private beaches which are accessible to the public free of charge. All beaches in St. Croix are public. There is no admission for parking, sunbathing, or swimming.
This house met every expectation we had. Our fifth trip to St. Croix and first time at Aqua Blue Villa. As previous people have stated, Helene and Martin were the best. They met us at the house to explain anything we might need, left us with their phone numbers and a beautiful fruit and rum basket. They assured us they were only a phone call away if we needed anything. And yes, they shared the wonderful coconuts and their water with us one afternoon. Martin opened them like a pro. The house was more than we needed, the master bed was very comfortable. The pool area and view were the big draw, awesome views day and night. We spent a good part of our time out there. And the stars at night are absolutely mesmerizing. Pool was clean and refreshing. Close to Divi Resort if you want to pop over there and get a great pizza like we always do. Loved the remote feature for the gate, no need to get in and out to open and close gate. This is a really nice place to stay. Thanks Helene and Martin!
Our stay at the Villa was "beyond words." The homeowners Martin and Helene were extremely gracious, kind, and more than accommodating to our group. Upon our arrival, we were met with open arms by Helene at the airport. It felt as if we were meeting family the way we were welcomed. We were assisted in loading all of our luggage and then then led to the Villa. Once the doors to the home were opened we were all taken back by the absolute beauty. Martin and Helene's kindness was once again extended to us in the form of an enormous fruit basket and a bottle of Cruzan Rum. Pictures cannot explain the beauty of St. Croix that this Villa allows you to capture without even venturing from the property. The homeowners have gone out of their way to equip their property with all of the necessities and comforts of home. You name it...it was there. It is obvious that they truly welcome and take care of their guests by extending these comforts of home. We all felt as if we were their number 1 priority during our stay.
Early on in our stay, Martin and Helene telephoned and then stopped by to bring us delicious star fruit and coconuts which Martin skillfully opened. Helene then served ice cold coconut water to those of us by the pool. Wow! Martin and Helene are magnificent!
After renting from over a dozen VRBO and Home Away property owners they take the #1 ranking from us by far! We could not have been happier with our experience.
Several restaurants that we enjoyed during our stay included Duggans, Sandcastles on the Beach, The Deep End Bar and Grill, Tavern 1844 on the Boardwalk, Cheeseburgers in America's Paradise, and the Blue Water Restaurant. We also enjoyed the Seaside Market and Deli.
We highly recommend Jolly Gingers for their snorkeling adventure to Buck Island. We did a half day trip and also took their sunset cruise. Mike and Bridgette are wonderful people who are true professionals at what they do. We truly enjoyed these experiences. We also visited Point Udall which captured the true beauty of St. Croix. We spent a morning at Cramer's Park to enjoy the beach. Shopping in Christiansted was also fun. We recommend Sonya Ltd. for your hook designed bracelet. We were also able to take in the sites of Frederiksted and tried our luck at the Divi Casino.
This trip provided our group the opportunity to relax, rejuvenate, and share the many blessings that friendships offer. We are truly blessed by this opportunity and enriched by our experiences.
What can I say? This home is absolutely beautiful!!! It sits on a hill with unobstructed views of the sea. The layout and decor of the home was perfect for our family (including my wife, father and mother-in-law). This home is extremely spacious and has a very open floorplan with a wall of windows w/ views overlooking the pool and sea. Once you enter the private gate to this home, you feel totally at peace. This was the perfect place for our family to relax. In the evening, all you hear are the sounds of rolling waves from the sea...total bliss!
The owners (Helene and Martin) were the best!!! They were super responsive to all of our questions prior to the trip. Our experience only got better once we landed in St. Croix. We were personally met by Helene and Martin at the airport. They escorted us to the home and gave us a great tour to understand the facilities. Helene and Martin were so friendly it felt as if we had known them for years.
I also have to give a shout-out to Chef Julianna. She came highly recommended to help our family celebrate my Dad's 78th birthday. Chef Julianna and her husband Austin cooked a meal in our vacation home w/ local Cruzan spices and flavors that melted in our mouths. The Mahi-mahi, curry lobster, beef patay and pineapple upside down cake were scrumptious...I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. :)
Special thanks again to Helene & Martin for helping make my Dad's 78th birthday celebration so special. I HIGHLY recommend this home to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in a beautiful home (w/ stunning views) on one of the more exclusive sides of St. Croix. You are close to many local attractions including the Casino, Point Udall (farthest East point of the US), many local restaurants (incl. Duggans, Blue Water Terrace) and The Buccaneer (great resort w/ a very nice beach). All of this and you are also only ~30min drive to reach downtown Christiansted.
I wish we could have stayed longer. When we return to St. Croix, we will definitely stay here again! Thx again Helene & Martin for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home.
The home is very nice and spacious and accomodated our family of six (two adults, four children) perfectly. It was especially nice to have the pool as the kids would jump in and play as soon as they woke up and relax in it after a day of exploring.
I will say that the home was quite dusty and dirty when we arrived. Thick layer of dust on shelves, which I cleaned off, microwave was greasy and had leftover food products in it. Stove had grease on it, fridge was dirty on the inside with food particles. Everyone's fridge gets crumbs in it from everyday use but I would have thought that it would have been thoroughly cleaned after one patron leaves and before another arrives. Cabinets and cabinet handles were greasy. Ceiling fans had a thick layer of dust on them, so much so that when we would turn them on, clumps of dust would fall down on the ground and even into our food when we turned the one on over the dining table. We found two dead lizards in the master bedroom that obviously had been there for awhile as the only thing remaining were the little bones, which makes me think a thorough cleaning just wasn't done prior to our arrival. The air conditioning unit in the master bedroom was very week and left us with poor nights of sleep because of the intense heat never cooling down. Other rooms AC worked fine.
The home is about 10 years old I think from the description given and could use a little bit of touching up but other than the less than stellar cleanliness of it, it was a nice stay. Please be aware that the home is located on the southeastern side of the island, about a twenty minute drive to downtown Christiansted, and then about a 35 minute drive to downtown Frederiksted.
The owner/manager, Helene, was very kind and pleasant.
Our stay at the villa was amazing! The view is absolutely to die for! The house is very secluded and private. The house was extremely clean and comfortable.
Helene and Martin were the best hosts, and really make our stay perfect! They picked us up at the airport and escorted us back to the lovely home. I would recommend renting a car to explore the island. They coordinated a private chef, Julianne, who made some of the best Caribbean food we have ever put in our mouths! They also made some restaurant recommendations that were top notch- Blue Water Terrace and Duggans Reef are a must!
This home is truly a paradise and is a great home away from home! Hope to come back to celebrate many anniversaries!
Within 2 hours of arriving at the villa we had a medical emergency. Helene was my guardian angel through the entire thing. Going to the hospital with us, sitting with me, and bringing me back to get our car. What an amazing woman!! After a few stressful days we were able to relax and what a great place for it. The house is stunning and very comfortable. We had a lovely welcome basket from Helene and Martin that we thoroughly enjoyed. All of the comforts of home were there and we never went without anything. We could walk to the beach and to the local pizza place. Close drive for many great restaurants. The owners supplied amazing customer service and I would recommend this home to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy island life. I can't say enough about the homeowners. They are a wonderful family that was there for us for anything we needed. Definitely went above and beyond any expectations that we had. We have been home for less than a week and already miss everything about it. Hope to return again soon. Thank you again Helene for all you did. I wouldn't have made it without you.
