About CHRISTINE MEYER

My husband renovated Southern Cross & made it an airy and gorgeous villa. We had actually rented it before we purchased it. We lived in it for a year.. it was a year of cool ocean breezes, morning coffee on the deck watching the activity in the bay and falling asleep to the Caribbean Sea crashing on the rocks below...... We pride ourselves in sharing with our guests these experiences in a comfortable and beautiful villa!.

CHRISTINE MEYER purchased this villa in 2001

What makes this villa unique

We have lived on St. John for 30 years, and never take the beauty and lifestyle for granted. We love when people come to St. John and are totally blown away by the natural beauty and enjoy the island we have come to be so proud to be a part of.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Southern Cross is all you could hope for in a vacation villa, it is close to shops, dining, has incredible views and is well stocked. We were a group of 7 adults, never did we feel crowded or cramped.

Crandall Management was helpful with questions or any needs. We rented two vehicles and had plenty of room for parking. This was our 3rd year in beautiful St John and we all agree that it was our best time yet!

I saved the best for last, upon our arrival an envelope was on the counter greeting us along with coupons for free drinks of choice at The Lime Inn, we enjoyed a delicious lunch along with our free cocktails.

We feel in love with Southern Cross I know future guest will too. ��

Amazing in all ways!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we started looking into staying at this villa to our checkout yesterday- Southern Cross was perfect. I have used VRBO all over the world but this was the best equipped house I have ever stayed. From the "leave behind" closet which is ingenious (why not leave that salt or rum you bought?) to the beach chairs, rafts and coolers we had everything we needed and more. The views are breathtaking and the location is ideal. We were 2 families so the parents stayed in the upper 2 masters while the "20 something" girls had the 2 huge bedrooms below. Everyone had their own bathroom as well as spot in the great room overlooking the water. We had a gorgeous breeze (trade winds) so we never had to turn on the air conditioning. The design and the layout of house, ample decks and outdoor seating let us know it was built with love.

Crandall maagment compamy were top notch and answered all of my pre-arival questions imediatley as well as helped us secure 2 vehicles. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and we go to meet their daughter at their family run restaurant "The Lime Inn".

Great house, excellent location and view I am still dreaming about.

Thhank you for sharing Southern Cross with us.

Gorgeous views!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for our wedding with our wedding party and we had such an excellent time! The house was beautiful, well kept with unique and island themed decor. The views were spectacular to wake up to in the morning and grill out for dinner. Highly recommend Southern Cross for your trip to my favorite place on earth! :)

An excellent villa for family, friends and a quiet relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have spent multiple vacations on St John and usually stay at a resort. With the recent addition of a baby to our family we asked our parents to join us for an extra set of hands (and to enjoy St John). Given the additional people, we searched for a villa that could provide us privacy, great views, plenty of space, on site pool, and be appropriate for a 7 month old baby. We reviewed many properties and decided that Southern Cross seemed to be a good fit. However, we were concerned about a property just below Southern Cross that was being renovated.

Well...Southern Cross was indeed a great property and made for an excellent vacation. The owners were very response to our initial inquiries regarding the property including keeping us informed about the lower property renovation progress. In the end, while construction was taking place during our stay, it was only during the morning and early afternoon and not particularly noisy.

The villa itself is situated along a largely private drive resulting in privacy. It was spacious, quiet, with a clean pool, nicely furnished, plenty of toiletries, stocked pantry, and clean. The views were spectacular and the breezes were fantastic meaning most of the day we had the doors open to take in the trade winds. At night we used the air conditioning in the bedrooms.

Finally, and not to be overlooked, is the service you receive while on site. Laurie and Craig of Crandall on St John Property Management were phenomenal. From the time we booked the reservation, Laurie and Craig were pleasant and responsive. They arranged our Jeep rental and offered a provisioning service. Upon our arrival, they met us at the ferry and transported us to the Villa where our Jeep awaited. Additionally, they transported us back to the ferry at the end of our trip.

Would happily stay again and recommend others do so as well, just don't take the week we want to come back!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with my sister and her husband, one daughter and her new husband, and our other daughter with her boyfriend, had been planning our return to St. John for quite sometime. After a lot of looking at various rental villas, we chose Southern Cross and we couldn't be happier with our choice. If you want location, this is it. If you want views, this is it. If you want to relax, this is it. Southern Cross is well laid out to catch the trade winds and for star gazing while sipping your rum drink by the pool in the evening. Christine and Rich take great care of the villa and their guests. When Christine learned that the villa below Southern Cross was undergoing some renovations, she not only contacted us to let us know, but also took measures at the Villa to ensure minimal noise and view problems. As a result, our stay was peacful and relaxing.

There are numerous dining options but I strongly recommend at least one evening at their restaurant, The Lime Inn. Whether you choose the blue cheese stuffed steak, the jerk seasoned snapper or the lobster roll, you can't go wrong.

If you're looking for a great snorkling spot, besides Trunk Bay, try Haulover Bay out on the East end. Small and relatively undiscovered, it is teeming with wonderful sea life.

Thank you Christine and Rich. We will be back.

Wonderful Views and Trade Winds

  • 5 of 5

This was a special trip for our family with us renewing our vows on Hawksnest Beach and our 2 granddaughters (2 & 4) being baptized the same day. My husband and I had the house to ourselves the first week then the family joined us for the second. The accommodations worked will for the children since we could lock them into the downstairs bedroom at night. We used a baby monitor (which we left) for them to talk to us in the morning when they wanted to be freed. They knew they could not be downstairs without an adult but we still blocked the stairs down by a couple of chairs (you could also rent baby gates if you would be more comfortable). The owners were great helping us with all our concerns prior and during our stay. The pictures you see on the listing are very accurate. We felt very fortunate that we were high enough to get the beautiful trade winds (hate air conditioning) just be sure to close the doors if there is any chance of heavy rain (learned this the hard way). Spent much time at HIgh Tides with some of the locals (best conch fritters). Didn't find the hamburger at the Rum Hut until the last few days. There G burger was even better than In and Out Calif. burgers. If we knew it was there we would have left several pounds heavier. Thank you Christine and Richard.
