Nestle into a tropical charmer at Villa Madeleine where citrus trees, classic palms, and blooms of every color welcome you to perfect days in paradise. These free-standing villas clustered on the island’s exclusive east end hills have everything you need—including individual swimming pools.
Set a saucer of sugar on a patio table just outside your French doors and wake to the song of tiny yellow birds waiting to join you for breakfast poolside. You may not want to leave your cottage with its perfect blend of West Indian style and modern convenience, but be sure to visit the Danish colonial town of Christiansted for duty-free shopping and lunch—it’s just 20 minutes away.
If you’re feeling energetic, play tennis at Villa Madeleine’s courts, shoot a round of golf at one of three St. Croix courses, and put on a mask and snorkel to explore the undersea world. Or simply stretch out with a good book and doze the afternoon away on any of our nearby white sand beaches or your own secluded sun terrace. Toast sunset with a concoction of our local rum before dinner at one of the island’s excellent restaurants, or choose to stay in—a convenience store with provisions is close by and your kitchen is well-equipped. Test your luck at the end of the day—the Virgin Islands’ only casino is just moments away. Before going to sleep, have a private dip in the pool and watch stars shooting through the amazingly clear night sky.
