About the property

4 Bedrooms with 5 1/2 private full bathrooms, sleeps 12

We have 4 bedrooms plus a cottage that has a King bedroom and a queen sofa bed. So if needed we have 5 bedrooms and can sleep up to 12 guests.

Situated at the edge of the Caribbean, SeaViewPlay was built in the year 2000 as a private tropical retreat by the owners of a famed Resort and Spa.

Sea View Play is a magnificent villa directly on the Caribbean SeaViewPlay. Every room in this over 6,000 square foot house faces the Ocean.

Since the house faces North and has 180 degree views, you can see both Sunrises and Sunsets. We are on the 'rainbow coast' and the rainbows are fantastic. Whether your party is 2 or 12, you will all have the space you need for both intimacy and privacy.

While many vacation properties accommodate large groups, they do not have the breathing space that Sea View Play affords each guest. SeaViewPlay is designed differently from most other houses. Being one of the larger houses on St. Croix, SeaViewPlay is configured into an East and West Wing (each with separate kitchen facilities and living areas).

If this isn't Heaven, what is?: Enter the Villa through the double Mahogany doors to the Atrium filled with beautiful plantings and look through the Great Room to sweeping views of the Caribbean SeaViewPlay.

The Great Room is the pride of the house with high vaulted ceilings in the old plantation tradition covers the huge common space. As you gaze out of every window and door, the stunning views and close proximity of the magnificent Caribbean Sea will memorize you.

We are very excited about our exquisite new fresh water pool and large deck off the Great Room. The oceanfront deck has a pergola to protect you from the sun, a bar for you to relax, and an outdoor kitchen to make wonderful. breakfasts, lunches, and romantic dinners under the stars.

For those who enjoy cooking, the outdoor kitchen is complete with plenty of counter space, an outdoor drop-in barbecue, sink, and refrigerator. The Deck is the perfect venue for outdoor dining or simply a place to gather at dusk to watch the sun sink spectacularly into the sea. The deck and pool are just the perfect spot for ‘limein’, the Crucian word for “not doing much of anything at all”.

At either end of the main house is a Master Bedroom Suite, each with its own private bath. Two additional large bedrooms and bathrooms, all with ocean views, are situated mid house. The separate and private cottage has a master bedroom, living room, bath, washer & dryer, and full kitchen. The two full kitchens and two washer/dryers in the main house offer flexibility not normally encountered in a vacation rental. The oceanfront deck and balcony that wraps around the seaside of the house is accessible from every room.

The spacious Great Room has vaulted ceilings, an indoor atrium, and Lanai folding doors that open the Great Room to the deck and new pool.

A rare feature of this spectacular property is its natural tidal swimming pool. Constantly replenished by the waves breaking just outside the pool, relaxing or taking a moonlight swim is an experience like no other. The small tropical fish enjoying the pool with you only make the experience even more special. Children especially like to swim and snorkel in the safety of the pool.

SeaViewPlay also enjoys a panoramic view of St. Thomas, St. John, and the British Virgin Islands. Just minutes away is Cane Bay, with its palm lined beach, world class diving at the Wall, and wonderful casual beachside restaurants.

If you play golf, we have an exclusive arrangement with the Carambola Golf Club for all of our guests to play golf for free during their stay. There are no greens fees. The Carambola Golf Club also has tennis courts, swimming pools, and a restaurant that are open to all our guests.

If you dive, we can arrange a discount package for diving for your group. The Wall at Cane Bay is one of the best diving sites in the world. Just let us know.

Our Villa Manager, Phillip, will greet you at the airport, escort you to the villa, assist you with your groceries and act as your personal concierge & property manager during your stay.

A Special Place for Special Events: SeaViewPlay, situated on 1.3 acres of beautiful grounds covered with Pink and Red Bougainvillea, Palm Trees and numerous tropical plants throughout the grounds is the perfect place for to stroll, gather for a special celebration, or have a beautiful wedding.

No matter why you come, your time at SeaViewPlay is spent taking a break from the rest of the world. Your life the way it should be.

About Joel Linchitz & Lucy Lasky

We always dreamed about being in the Virgin Islands. We love St. Croix because it is undiscovered and looks like many different places: Hawaii, Northern California and of course, the colorful Caribbean paradise which it is. Contact us and we will be happy to tell you about all of the wonderful things we have discovered on this island that will make your vacation, or your special event, a memorable experience.

We love to share all the wonderful things we have done on St. Croix

Joel Linchitz & Lucy Lasky purchased this villa in 2009

Why Joel Linchitz & Lucy Lasky chose St. Croix

We couldn't believe that this magnificent villa located at the edge of the Caribbean was in our budget. We wanted a place that we could use and enjoy and some day retire to.

Four Couples Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Four couples rented Sea View Play for a week. What a blast!! This place is in the perfect location. Right on the water and within a two mile radius, there are 6 excellent local restaurants for drinks, dinner, and dancing. Scuba, snorkeling and swimming are within a mile and located right along side a very cool beach bar.....try Calvin's Mama Juana drink!!

The house is very comfortable and nicely decorated with a stocked kitchen. The pool is a lifesaver and just the right size to cool off. My favorite thing was to just sit on the deck with a coffee or in the pool with a cocktail a look out over the ocean. The special location of this house allows you to see the sunrise in the morning and the sunset in the evening.

Lucy and Joel make it very easy to rent this fabulous place. We rented the house two years ago and couldn't wait to return. Trust me, we will be back!!

Wonderful 50th Anniversary Celebration!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending an incredible week at SeaView Play. The house is just like the photos and very

comfortable, allowing for plenty of privacy, even with a large group. The location of the house is amazing! Loved hearing the waves splash against the rocks all day and into the night. Several of us went to Rhythms Beach Bar at Rainbow Beach on Sunday afternoon. Rented jet skis and enjoyed all the people-watching and live music. Went to "Off The Wall" beach restaurant, 5 minutes from the house, numerous times. We even played Bingo there with a lot of the locals on Tuesday evening. A local photographer shot family photos at the Renaissance Hotel Beach at sunset, which is a short distance from the house. Gorgeous setting. Snorkeled on Buck Island through Big Beard's Tours. Would highly recommend them. On Thanksgiving Day, our 50th Wedding Anniversary, our children hired a professional chef, recommended by Joel & Lucy, to cook for us at the house. What an amazing evening it was and a total surprise, too. We thought we were going out to dinner. Our last night we went to the "Jump Up" Festival in downtown Christiansted. We had a ball watching all the people, listening to numerous live bands and singers, seeing the Moko Jumbies, as well as eating and drinking along the boardwalk. We managed to fit in a tour at the Cruzan Rum Distillery and lunch at La Reine Chicken Shack before heading to the airport. Even though we stayed busy each day, we also relaxed at the house, swam in the pool, cooked dinners in the well-stocked kitchen, and enjoyed the incredible views. We would recommend SeaView Play to anyone who wants to create unforgettable memories in paradise!

What an amazing house and location!

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful time we had staying at SeaView Play!!

We all had a great time...not always an easy task for a party of 11(age 17 to 79)! We had a lot of enjoyable dinners, snorkeled on Buck Island, kayaked at night to see the bio luminescent creatures, swam at Cane Bay and enjoyed a tour of the Captain Morgan's distillery. And then, of course, lots of fun and relaxation at the house!

We all would recommend this property to anyone that wants a beautiful location for an unforgettable vacation. This is one that we will remember and cherish forever!

Amazing Oceanfront Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a beautiful week in St. Croix in February thanks in no small part to Lucy and Joel's amazing house on the ocean.

We are four siblings and spouses who gather every two years from all parts of the country to reconnect. Where we stay and the amenities offered are key to the experience, and SeaViewPlay came through in every way.

The four bedrooms all open to the outside with stunning views of the water. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, two ensuite. The center of the house is a large space with a generously sized table, many comfy chairs, and a floor-to-ceiling wall of glass doors that fold back to open the entire room to a gorgeous large deck, pool, bar, and barbecue area with coastal views for miles in every direction. You will never want to leave the chaise lounges - except to fetch another adult beverage!

From the deck we watched two whales feeding just offshore of the house! A whale biologist friend identified them as mother and baby humpbacks.

Look down from the deck to the most unique attribute of the house - its own tidal lagoon! You can float with the fishes while waves continuously break over the rocky edges. The main kitchen, while small, works well and is reasonably well-outfitted.

The location is perfect! Cane Bay is five minutes away and offers the best scuba diving and snorkeling on the island...and multiple restaurants, including our favorite, eat@canebay. The atmosphere is laid back, the staff is friendly, and the food and drinks (try an orange crush!) are exactly what you need after a tough day of relaxation. They never flinched at our party of eight and seated us within minutes (with no reservations!). Five minutes the other way is Rowdy Joe's, for good food and drink and the best house-made ice cream.

The island has a nice, easy-going vibe. Shop-til-you-drop visitors may not find enough of that, but if you like a little bit of history (don't miss the national park in Christiansted), mixed with rum (Cruzan factory tour), nighttime kayaking (Salt River we didn't see a lot of bioluminescence but had a great time), and hanging out with friends or family, St. Croix is a terrific destination.

From meeting you at the airport to restaurant recommendations to tips on dive masters to how to turn on the barbecue, Joel and Lucy and their on-island support crew are eager to help make your visit enjoyable.

We would go back in a heartbeat to a place that lives up to its name...SeaViewPlay.

An Amazing Perk For Those Guests Who like to Play Golf: Less than 8 minutes from the Villa is the beautiful Carambola Golf Club, the par-72 Carambola Golf Course that was built by Laurence Rockefeller as the centerpiece of a luxury Caribbean resort complex. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., one of the most highly respected designers of the 20th century, Carambola opened in 1966 to rave reviews and was considered by the master designer himself to be one of his finest courses.

. All Guests of Sea View Play can play golf for free as often as they like.

For those who do play Golf, this can result in savings of hundreds if not thousands of dollars. The free amenities extend to tennis, swimming pools and Club House Restaurant. Our Villa is the only one on St Croix that can boast these amenities.

For Those Who Love to Scuba Dive and Snorkel: Not five hundred feet from the balcony lies one of the Caribbean’s unique wonders, the Cane Bay Wall. The Wall is the famed destination of divers from all over the world. Less than a quarter of a mile from shore, the sea plunges to a depth of a thousand feet or more. The Wall offers novice and professional scuba divers and snorkelers one of the world’s most thrilling experiences. Scuba diving is extremely easy from our Villa.

Other Activities: Horseback riding on the beach and in the water, kayaking at night in the Bio-luminescent bay, sea kayaking, taking a sail boat to Buck Island

Winding through a lush, tropical valley on the northwest side of the island of St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands, the Carambola Golf & Country Club is truly one of the great treasures of American golf and the finest course in the Virgin Islands. This challenging, spectacular Trent Jones signature course is a Caribbean gem and a 'must play' for any true lover of the game of golf. Carambola has received a four star rating from GOLF Magazine.

You will fall in love with the Carambola Golf & Country Club and with its beautiful island home. For those who do not play golf, Sea View Play guests can utilize all the other facilities including Tennis Courts, Swimming Pools and great food at the Club Restaurant.

Our Villa is the only one on St Croix that can boast this amenity. For those who do play Golf, this can result in savings of hundreds if not thousands of dollars.
