About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps up to 14)

Villa Dawn, a luxurious St. Croix villa, is located on the lush north shore of St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands, the most beautiful part of the island. This private, secluded and tropically landscaped, 1.3 acre, St. Croix estate includes a four bedroom, three bath vacation rental with breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and its stunning sunsets. It is only steps away from the white sands of Cane Bay Beach and four waterfront restaurant/Bar and Grills. In fact, it is the closest villa to gorgeous Cane Bay Beach.

The views from inside this extraordinary, St. Croix, vacation home, from the front covered veranda and from the pool deck are spectacular! The large pool has four stools in the water where you can sit and enjoy the view and the fountain that flows into the pool. Villa Dawn has central air conditioning and is outfitted with tropical designer furnishings and every conceivable amenity. There is world-class SCUBA diving at the Cane Bay 'Wall' right in front of Villa Dawn, many nearby attractions and a championship golf course is just a ten minute drive from this dazzling vacation home. Our caretaker of the property lives nearby and is available 24/7 for any and all of your needs. If you are looking for a special vacation rental with that extra touch of luxury in a stunning location that can't be beat, then Villa Dawn is definitely your choice!

Villa Dawn vacation rental is literally just steps from the beach. While some villas advertise 'walking distance to the beach,' they are truly a 'hike to the beach.' Not at Villa Dawn! This exclusive property goes all the way down to the coast road. On the other side of the road is the fabulous Cane Bay Beach! Villa Dawn has unobstructed views of Cane Bay Beach, the Caribbean Sea, and the surrounding lush mountains from the large front covered veranda as well as from most of the 1.3 acres that make up this St. Croix, USVI island paradise. Recline in the hammock on the large front veranda of this comfortable vacation home and listen to the soothing sounds of the Caribbean waves while gentle island breezes caress you. Go swimming in the pool... it's spectacular. Enjoy the lighted fountain with a waterfall that overflows into the pool. Bask under the St. Croix sun around the pool on the 1500 square foot deck or sit on one of the four in-water stools while you watch the stunning sunsets over the Caribbean Sea... watching for the elusive 'green flash.' Yes... you are in paradise!

Three of the four bedrooms and two of the three bathrooms are located on the upper level of this centrally air conditioned, fully equipped, designer decorated villa. The upper level's large gourmet kitchen and comfortable living room both have magnificent views of the Caribbean Sea from the villa's 'wall of windows.' The air-conditioned and private lower level of Villa Dawn is fully-equipped with one bedroom, a living room, a kitchen, and a bath. The lower level also has a 'wall of windows' that offer spectacular views from all of the rooms. Both levels are equipped with TV, VCR, and complete AM/FM/CD/Cassette stereo systems. No amenities have been forgotten at this beautiful retreat. Duty free shopping and additional fine dining is just a 20 minute drive to either Frederiksted or Christiansted. For your privacy, we will only reserve Villa Dawn to one group at a time. We are available 24/7 for any and all of your needs. We accept Checks, Visa, Mastercard and Discover as payment.

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!

Amazing vacation at Villa Dawn

  • 5 of 5

We had not had a family vacation in over two years and Villa Dawn was the perfect Paradise for the seven of us this week. We had an amazing, wonderful time and felt so at home. Kent was fantastic in responding to all our questions before we got here. Pictures don't do this beautiful home and location justice! We have found a place we would love to come back to again and again.

Thank you,

The Wolfpack --- Lisa, John Lobo and family

Beautiful Villa overlooking Cane Bay.

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my wife by flying out the children and grandchildren for her birthday. Villa Dawn was perfect even though we did not have Wi-Fi, cable TV or cell service (still off from the hurricane). We went old school at night playing board games and watching VHS movies. Pool was great and porch was perfect for visiting, cocktails and views of the Bay. Well stocked kitchen. Thank you Kent and Dawn.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Dawn! It must have been a lot of fun surprising your wife with your children and grand kids! Sorry for the lack of Cable & Internet. If you had AT&T, you would have had cell service at the villa. Besides the local phone company, AT&T is the only cell provider with decent service on the island..before and after the storm. It took us over 4 months to get our power back after the September hurricane, the communications company is following. They had to wait for all the new poles to be put in place and power restored by the power company. I think that you will agree that the island looks great...nice and green and lush. In another month or two, the hurricane from last September will be just a memory. We hope you will choose to visit St Croix again and stay at Villa Dawn!

Amazing views and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for my entire family to come for a once in a lifetime experience! The views from the deck and pool area are to die for. There was nothing like being able to take a 5 minute walk down the driveway and across the street to swim and snorkel to my hearts content. Bring your own gear and it is free or if you don't have any the dive shop is directly across the street and are very reasonably priced. Kent was very helpful with every question or concern we had! Only recommendation is to put up some kind of blinds in kitchen area because when sun is setting ( which is gorgeous) It gets pretty hot in the kitchen. That is not a complaint just a recommendation because being able to look out and see the mountains beyond the sea was breathtaking!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Dawn! It is a little piece of paradise! We have thought about putting some sun diffusing shades outside, attached to the covered deck, but have been concerned about the breezes damaging them if left open and unattended. And, as you mention, we don't want to do anything to deter from the incredible view! We hope you will choose to come back to St. Croix some time and will choose to stay at Villa Dawn again!
