Overview

About the property

4 BR main house with 1 BR guest cottage and huge pool built on a bluff

This prize winning villa by renowned architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen will take your breath away!

If you want to get away from it all, if you dislike noisy restaurants, traffic and tourists but are rather looking for peace and serenity, then this villa is for you! Drive past water melon fields, through a canopy of vines and arrive at the villa at the dead end of a lane, with only two neighbors- welcome to SEASCAPE!

One of the biggest estates on the island, this villa is the perfect destination for groups of up to 12 people.

The main house has two wings: One with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and the other with a full kitchen, formal dining room, bedroom/office and half bath. The open atrium with mature palm trees and the great room connects the two wings; all rooms connect through here. Our villa is an open-air concept house, with sliding glass doors everywhere to allow maximum integration of the beautiful island into the house. The guest house is on the other side of the oversized 20ft x 40ft pool that was just redone in October 2015.

The brand new, enormous patio of over 6000 square feet fronts the ocean and offers wonderful outdoor living while uniting the main and the guest house. It features ample couches and outdoor dining with comfortable armchairs. The garden is newly landscaped by our expert landscape artists and has local plants, towering sea grape trees that provide shade as well as mature palms that sway gently in the breeze.

The entire property just underwent a complete renovation inside and out, with new patio, newly tiled pool, new paint and all new furnishings- everything you could possible desire for the vacation of a lifetime!

Our local property manager couple will make sure the villa is ready and set up for you prior to arrival. You will be picked up and escorted to the house and our manager is available 24/7 for your questions or concerns (does not live on premises). Rest assured, this will be the vacation of your dreams come true at SEASCAPE!

About Olivia Korsun

After travelling to St Croix for the first time in 2014, we quickly fell in love with the island and its people. We believe that St Croix is by far the most beautiful island of the three US Virgin Islands and has so much to offer!

Olivia Korsun purchased this villa in 2015

Why Olivia Korsun chose St. Croix

Once we saw SEASCAPE, there simply was no other house for us! SEASCAPE is ideally located on the tip of Long Point on the South Shore, and is surrounded by water on 3 sides. The architecture is stunning with 19 foot ceilings throughout and the ocean waves lapping at the rocks.

What makes this villa unique

This is a very private villa, located away from it all on a 2.75 acre lot, but within a few minutes' drive to Frederiksted and all of its restaurants, and pier. On the island, it is said that "West is Best" and the locals agree that the Western beaches are unparalled, topped of course by the Natural Reserve, Long Point Beach that is just minutes from our house!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Olivia, was a great hostess even though she was not actually on site! She made sure to stay in contact with me before & during my family's stay. Although in the beginning a little hard to find. After we found our way no problem! The grounds and the house were beautiful, but the view absolutely amazing, magnificent and all that! Everything was just as Olivia preped us for! Pool, guest house, atrium, fantastic!!

It's everything it seems to be and more

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week in St. Croix staying at Seascape. The group included five of us traveling down in March. Words do not begin to do justice to this property. The pictures in the posting only begin to show how great everything is. First of all, it's a beautiful place. Located right next to the ocean, we had the constant sound of waves breaking on the cliffs. The entire property is large and spacious. With five of us there, everyone had their own room and we could easily find privacy when we wanted it, or could join together in the communal spaces.

For most of the trip, we would go explore the island during the daytime and have lunch out, but then we would spend the late afternoons around the pool, cook at the grill for the evening, and then enjoy the night star gazing or playing cards. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking equipment if you want to prepare your own meals, and the washer and dryer were top notch as well. We would just run laundry each night and it didn't interfere with the relaxing one bit. Also the property is wired for satellite tv and internet so both can be nice for relaxation as well. The internet was a very good connection even with five people using it at once.

You will need to rent a car if you stay here, but I would recommend that anyway so you can explore the entire island. Roads can be a little tricky, so having GPS can be helpful. Driving on the left side takes some getting used to at first!

Finally, I can't say enough about working with Olivia in planning this trip and during our time there. During the whole process she was always available if we had questions, and she provided great suggestions as well. We had a delay with our flight and she was very responsive to our change of arrival time. Throughout the week, she would check in to make sure things were going well and see if there was anything more we needed.

Hopefully, we will be back to St. Croix again sometime in the future, and if we are, this will be the place I hope to stay again. If you're lucky enough to enjoy it too, you'll see what I mean.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for submitting this review! I am glad that you found the relaxation that you were looking for. We, too, just love the privacy that Seascape offers, and always come back energized and refreshed (and planning our next stay). Thanks again for posting this review, as I believe it will help future travelers understand just how special a place Seascape is.

Beautiful, ocean front private oasis in St. Croix!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Olivia's place in St. Croix! The accommodations were beyond what we expected! Each day we would go scuba dive the island and come back to our own private oasis over looking the ocean, it was wonderful! Olivia, was always available and provided us with everything we needed, excellent instructions and recommendations! We hope to visit again one day! Thank you Olivia!!

Did NOT get all we PAID for and was NOT compensated

  • 1 of 5

My guests and I stayed here from April 20-25th. We chose this home because of the swimming pool, number of rooms, privacy and security. There were 5 guests and when the owner asked if I had any questions or concerns prior to the trip my last statements were that we really want the place and pool to be clean.

Upon our arrival just before 4pm we were greeted by the property manager who immediately apologized that he did not have enough time to fully clean and wished he’d had more time to clean. We were all surprised that the place was not ready, the property manager and his wife were the cleaning crew, the place was being spot cleaned and there were linens still drying. We were under the impression that the sizeable cleaning fee we paid involved a company/crew.

On a tour we noticed the place had just been wiped down and the pool had not been cleaned. After the Property Manager and his wife departed I went to lock the gate through which access is gained to the home and the latch that I was supposed to place the padlock through had rusted right off. There was no way to secure access to the home so I text the owner and let them know. I was asked if I could purchase a bike lock. When we returned from getting food a bike cable lock had been placed on the gate. Good thing because several of the doors to the home had non-functioning locks including the guest home.

There was a fair amount of hair on the floors so we used sandals and placed towels on the floors when showering. When showering all guests noted the water was lukewarm at best and remained the same for a few days. The bed that had been "fixed" broke again our first day so a guest had to sleep in the office on the futon. Several of the fixtures did not work in the home to include ceiling fans which was important with the heat and lack of ac and water leaked into the home through cracks when it rained.

I reached out to the owner to further discuss the issues where we did not get what we paid for. The owner was very concerned about getting a poor review, said they’d make the necessary corrections and said they’d rather I just not write a review. After 2 weeks of no communication I reached out again. I was told they’d contact me the next day. I've waited 3 weeks since that date in the hopes of coming to an agreement that was both fair and favorable to both parties but they’ve chosen to avoid communication. I’d highly recommend another property unless you are flexible in regards to your expectations.

Amazing, Secluded Estate. 10 out of 10. Your own private, luxury Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a 10 out of 10. Amazing ocean views, a full size pool, and immaculate accommodations are just the tip of the iceberg. Olivia, the host, and her contact on island, Jack, were amazing. Olivia was wonderfully communicative, honest, and always prompt with her responses. This house was the PERFECT venue for our St. Croix destination dream wedding. The house had enough space for the entire bridal party to stay and an amazing ocean view pool deck to host the wedding and reception. The separate guesthouse king suite was ideal for us as newlyweds, it provided us with a location that was both private and close enough to share time with friends and family. The pictures on the profile are spot on. When the sun is too much, the house's fast internet and big screen TV with satellite make taking shelter a joy as well. Lastly, the kitchen was amazing. My wife and I love to prepare meals together and the kitchen is awesome. Plenty of space, great appliances and it has everything you need to make a feast. We love this place and we are already planning on staying here for 5th anniversary!!!

Amazing family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this amazing home - more like a compound with a separate guesthouse and ridiculous pool and patio area that look straight out of Architectural Digest. We were joined by another couple, and this home works great for both family-style and adult-vibe getaways. We liked that it was secluded in feel but still quite close by car to everything we wanted and needed. The home is tastefuly done with a lot of attention to detail, especially in the kitchen. We ended up cooking most meals at home because the setting was so great with options for dining indoors or by the pool. Olivia is a great host and very accessible even though she wasn't on-island at the time. Our son is just shy of 3 years old and simply adored the place, as did all of us. Great place to also host a special event or wedding. At night when it's lit up it is really spectacular. We will return!
