11/23 - 12/3/16

Thanks so much for the hospitality. We had a great 10 days at Villa Dawn and will keep it in mind for future trips to St. Croix. Location on the north shore is great, the pool and views are wonderful and we loved that it is close to everything yet nice and secluded.

Have a great year folks and thanks again :)

Doreen's review of Villa Dawn

August 14, 2016

Hello Kent and Dawn:
Thank you so much for the use of your Villa. We had a wonderful time. The villa was very spacious and well equipped. The pool was ideal for the kids after a long day of exploring the island it was a great place to cool off, have a cocktail and admire the sunsets. Views were spectacular and the location was great - nice and quite!!!! Amazingly, I was able to find it!!!!! We took your suggestions and did Big Beard, Cruzan Cowgirls Beer Drinking Pigs, Rum Tour, Angry Nates and Off the Wall. They were all very good. We dined at the Waves our last night which was also excellent.

Lastly, a big thanks for the late check-out. That was extremely helpful!!!! Just wanted you to know that before we left we made sure all bath and beach towels were washed, dried and put away, we swept all the rooms including the back and front porch, wiped down all the counter tops and glass tables, emptied all trash and cleaned out the fridge and all dishes were washed and put away. We really left it like we found it!   "Now, these are the kind of guests we love!" :)

Thanks for an amazing vacation. If you have any questions or concerns about my stay please feel free to contact me.  Doreen

First of all the villa was a beautiful experience. I took my in-laws to the island for the first time, the location & views were superb. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your villa. We have plans to return to St. Croix in the future and would love to stay at the villa again. The accommodations at the villa was very comforting & well thought of. We had a great trip and returned home safely. I would like to know if we did all that we were to do upon checking out. We have thought extensively about what more you could have done to accommodate us and for us it was nothing. Oh, the shower by the steps was not operational due to water valve handle not present, that was all we saw. If there is anything you were displeased about our stay, please let us know, because just as you want to be great hosts, we want to be great tenants. Thank you very much!

Dear Kent & Dawn, We had the most fabulous time at Villa Dawn! We love the house, the view, and the locals. I don't remember the last time I was so relaxed. I woke up Sunday morning thinking I was at the Villa, only to realize I was back home in my own bed. It was a somber moment...lol! We enjoyed every moment of our time together at Villa Dawn and Cane Bay. The guys said "why can't we pay for late check out." We made some great memories...snorkeling Buck Island, jumping off the pier, the tide pools and, spending time with our favorite locals at EAT! We can't wait to come back and make even more great memories. Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise! Suzie, Frank and Roger...Naples, FL

Dear Dawn,

I was on the island for both a sad occasion (with recent passing of my sis) & happy time with my pre-teen girls! Thank you so much for accommodating us with your warm hospitality!

After taking care of some estate issues, while my girls hung round the pool with pristine views of Cane Bay, we went kayaking (both during day & night translucent @ nearby Salt River), scuba diving (even my 12yr old) & snorkeling, horse back riding in the ocean & on the beach with character & cowboy Steve, Tues Day night bingo & pizza @ Off-the-Wall, Rowdy Joes for burgers & tuna, even take-out from 5 star Waves, & Fri nite Pirates BBQ with all you can eat crabs legs @ Renaissance Resort...Wow!

Thanks again for the perfect loca 2 stay!

Vlad & the girls!

I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to stay at your beautiful villa. You have done a wonderful job of making sure that everything we needed was there. It was a fantastic way to get to know St Croix.

We loved the island so much that we have put in a bid on a house in Salt Pond.

Thanks again,

Peter and Debbie G.

Kent & Dawn: Thanks for everything. We enjoyed Villa Dawn very much. My wife and I have been going to the island for 14 years and enjoyed the location at Cane Bay. The other couple had never been to STX and loved everything except the winding roads! They loved the proximity to the Waves @ Cane Bay and walking to Off the Wall.

Everything worked fine while we were there. We really like that the villa was so well equipped with dishware, glassware, etc. I like the excellent organization of your communications, etc. I also commend you on maintenance. The water pressure is very good and unlike other properties I've stayed at all the appliances worked well.

Thanks, Dave

Hi Kent and Dawn,

I just realized I sent the key back but forgot to put the note I had written to you both in the envelope, argh!
I wanted to thank you for sharing your beautiful vacation home with us and tell you that my family had a wonderful time on the island.  We enjoyed our experiences, meeting the locals and visitors alike.  We enjoyed the music at both the Eats and Off the Wall, the snorkeling both off the pier and Buck Island and the diving at The Wall, as well as several hikes.   We spent a lot of our time on the vacation at the Villa, relaxing in the pool, playing games and cooking.  The kitchen was equipped wonderfully and made it easy and fun to enjoy meals in....I thanked Jennifer when leaving a tip with a note for picking up our first bit of groceries.  She was great in doing a bit of housekeeping between the two weeks.  I read through your guest books and saw that many of your visitors are returning guests, I can see why!
Thanking you again.
A much relaxed, quite tanned,
Carolee R.

Stay @ Villa Dawn was great. House had everything we needed and then some. I broke a broom trying to clean a little but went and bought another one. No big deal. Pool was great, that's where we spent most of our time. The location of the villa is great...walking distance to 3 bars and perfect location for the sunsets, even though we didn't get any good ones. All in All Villa Dawn was a great place to stay!

Thanks

Had a fantastic vacation and stay at Villa Dawn. The only issue we had was an ant problem on the patio which we expect is common on the island. (It can be at times. We have the villa treated monthly for pests and we had a special treatment for the ants based on your comments. Thanks!)

Thank you for allowing us to stay at Villa Dawn. We will definitely recommend your villa to friends!

P.S. we never used the
downstairs apt.
just took a
peek to see
for next time.

We had a wonderful time at Villa Dawn. We found the villa to be very well equipped. We used the washer / dryer once during our stay. Worked well. We also enjoyed the bluetooth for our music. It was an excellent idea to bring the GPS. Very helpful and don't know what we would have done without it! Even the personal chef from Ziggy's found everything needed to cook a beautiful meal! We loved every minute of our relaxing vacation. Thank you!

We had a fabulous time at your villa. Very spacious and comfortable. We had everything we needed there. We spent 2 weeks. The first with 6 retired adults. We enjoyed the pool & lounging with Pina Coladas on the veranda. The second week was our family, 2 adult children with spouses and five grands from 1 1/2 to 11 years old. Used the pool every day. Tried many beaches and restaurants including ones on Cane Bay. All agreed it was the best vacation ever. Thanks for the use of your villa. We would recommend it to everyone.

Villa was great. Particularly loved the pool, size, view. Loved the fact that you had every type of appliance and/or kitchen utensil needed! Our bathroom was the perfect size! Bed comfy.

We were initially nervous not having anyone to meet us @ the villa, but it turned out fine!

Kent & Dawn,

We had an amazing time and the best part was Villa Dawn! Your home is wonderful, perfectly located and better equipped than many other VRBO/Homeaway rentals we have stayed in over the years. The beds are comfortable, the grounds well kept, and the location can't be beat. Having both eat@canebay (try the duck chili) and Off the Wall within walking distance was great. Add Rowdy Joes and Above the Cliff minutes away and you never have to leave the area to have a great vacation. The team down at Cane Bay Dive Shop is excellent to work with, make sure you dive the pier at night! I hope we respected your home enough to be back for another stay.

Thank you, Scott & Ellen

Not even been home a week and miss Villa Dawn immensely - loved, loved, loved everything about it - kitchen awesome, well stocked and could cook and look at the amazing views - Deck - out of this world, such an amazing gathering place - lived on the deck. The pool - just beautiful. Loved the location on St. Croix - sort of right in the middle. Love the restaurants all around and beach bars.

Thank you so much - Hope to rent again next year - if possible.

Thank you so much! It was wonderful to stay in your home. Sorry about the alarm that first day. It would have been easier for me if the code was included in that 3 page summary of rules about the house. I simply didn't read everything because my hands are full!!

All in all, a beautiful, much needed vacation.

Thanks again,

Kale, Leila & Family

Kent and Dawn,

We just wanted to say thank you for the use of the villa, we had a great vacation!  I can see why you choose this location, it is perfect. We loved being able to walk to the beach, the bars, and restaurants. My girls snorkeled every day and were able to see octopus, barracudas, and a sea snake, and a sea turtle, along with many fish and coral. We had the best lobster ever at the waves, we were able to pick the ones we wanted out of the cage in the ocean, loved Eat at Cane Bay, Rowdy Joes was good with great entertainment. The best drinks came from off the wall ( much larger and the same price with more alcohol). We really. Only had time for one outing and decided on a cruise to Buck Island with Captain Carl and first mate Dana on Buck Island Charters. It's on a catamaran and you sail out to buck island. It was incredible!!! The reef there is second to none, there were nurse sharks, stingrays , barracuda, and beautiful coral that so many different fish. It was one of the best experiences of our lives. We have traveled to many different islands but we have never seen water as blue and clear and beautiful as this. We also went to Rainbow beach, nice sandy, better for swimming, it was very calm, good for small children.
We don't want to leave, but must.
We made memories to last a lifetime!
We will be back,
