 St. Croix Vacation Home


You will think you’ve gone to Paradise – because you have!  Enjoy a week’s stay and spectacular breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea in beautiful St. Croix (formerly part of the Danish West Indies)!  With five bedrooms including ensuite bathrooms spread over three terraced levels, your companions will all enjoy the gorgeous sea views and spectacular starry nights from their rooms as well as their balconies. You can hear the sound of the waves throughout the villa – adding to your relaxation.

Three separate kitchen areas make it easy for large groups to cook and dine individually or together; with the main kitchen convenient to dining on the spacious covered patio.

The six foot deep swimming pool and an adjacent whirlpool are a perfect complement to this tropical home. Surrounded by stone walls the pool area is both beautiful and private… without blocking the scenery. Floating on your back at night will reveal some magnificent views on beautiful starry nights. The ambient light is minimal in the neighborhood making star gazing a wonderful pastime.

Spacious, private, breezy, and views to live for. Five O’Clock on the Hill offers several configurations to satisfy the honeymoon couple, extended family, large groups of friends, multiple families, private retreats, and more.

Destination weddings can be held on the neighborhood beach or right on our covered patio. There is plenty of room for wedding guests, a small band, and a catered dinner with outdoor seating for 24.

Airfare is not included.
