Villa Dawn was beautiful - the pictures on the website don't do it justice. When we arrived everything was clean - a pack-n-play was provided for the babies. The directions provided were accurate although we all passed the driveway because the sign was so small & not visible. Kent & Dawn were very attentive - we called about a problem with the internet & a broken picnic table. Kent called back right away & everything was taken care of. We did have a few of us fall & slip by the pool - very slippery!!! Overall, we had an amazing experience. Villa Dawn was a much needed vacation. We hope to come back in the future.

Thank you!!

We had an awesome time @ Villa Dawn. We enjoyed the house and island!! This was our 2nd stay @ Villa Dawn, the first was twelve years ago. Thanks so much for the wonderful vacation spot. We hope to return again soon.

The villa was well equipped. The pool was clean. And the Yard was well kept. Overall, though you have an "A+" villa. Beautiful home, spectacular view, great access to beach and dive shop. And most important you were good to work with...

Dear Kent & Dawn-

We very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Dawn. The house and location were great. I think if there were anything I would change it would be for the lower apartment to be accessible from the interior of the main house. It's not a big deal, but that's the only aspect I might wish was different. I would love to stay at Villa Dawn again some day! Thanks!

Dear Dawn & Kent,

The villa was even more than we anticipated. It was the most comfortable accommodations we have ever had. We truly appreciate your attentiveness to our needs.

Had a wonderful time and hope to visit there again!!

Kent & Dawn - Our group had a wonderful time at Villa Dawn. The villa was wonderful and area was wonderful as well. The kitchen was the best equipped kitchen we have found in our travels, the pool was great and the porch was beautiful. There is nothing we can think of that needed repair. Thanks for an excellent experience and we will be back in the future (we booked yesterday).


Dear Kent & Dawn,

Thank you both so very much for sharing the lovely St. Croix villa with my group. Despite the comment on tripadvisor, our group was very happy with the accommodations.

I do hope to stay at your place in the future! Your home was so charming and comfortable.

Blessings to your both.

Hi Kent & Dawn,

Forgot to write in your book, very busy doing things, and time passed so fast.

Thank you for the use of your beautiful, comfortable home.

Played bingo at Off the Wall, fed beer to the pigs at Norma's, went to Jump Up in Christiansted, etc., etc.

Had a favorite (Thrushie) bird who loved tomato juice and visited daily. Had a great time with son at Rowdy Joe's.

Thanks so much! We'll be back.

Sincerely, Charla S.

Hello, Kent and Dawn,
We had an incredible week at your lovely home! All four of us (adults) were so pleased with the location, view, proximity to restaurants, snorkeling and activities, pool, thoroughly furnished kitchen and creature comforts! Well done! The only thing which was not working was the pair of binoculars. The power went out briefly on Friday morning, however nothing had to be reset or primed. We looked at the lower level, but didn't use it.
We ate and drank at EAT, Off the Wall and Angry Nate's - all good.....also Above the Cliff, but would not recommend it. Most of our meals were at Villa Dawn, however. We particularly enjoyed getting fresh fish and lobsters at the open air market. We did the night kayaking with Brian and the trip to Buck Island with Capt. Miles.
You have done a spectacular job with your rental and the care and understanding were really appreciated. I intend to write a glowing review on TripAdvisor. You provided a wonderful home away from home!

Hi Kent,

Thanks again for the use of your place last week.  We are putting your keys in the mail today, and you should get them shortly. 
We had a great week.  My daughter Elizabeth became a regular at the Cane Bay dive ship and made a lot of friends.  It was a great location, and the unit is very nice.  We called the look “Tommy Bahama meets Williams Sonoma.”

Hi Kent,

We returned safe and sound from a wonderful vacation. Villa Dawn is Awesome! We definitely found a “gem”.

The keys are on their way back to you.

Happy Thanksgiving,


10/9 - 10/16/2010

Kent & Dawn, The house was fabulous. The beds were so comfy, All things considered, you get an A+. Never had such a well-equipped kitchen in a rental house! We will recommend Villa Dawn to anyone traveling to St. Croix.

Best regards, Sandra

*loved having laundry facilities!


Property was in great shape. We noticed several improvements that we appreciated - wish I could have used the TV in the master! Although the weather put a damper on things & contributed to the cable outage & subsequent power issues, we had a good time.

PS - Joseph did a good job for us - thanks!

Hi Kent-  Attached is a picture of our HAPPY family at your beautiful home.  Thank you again for the opportunity to stay at Villa Dawn.   As you can tell we are all smiles.   I sent the keys a bit late (on Tuesday) as I got sick after I got home-   nothing from the water just a bit of a cold.

thanks again.

Kent & Dawn, Thank you for a wonderful, comfortable stay. The most "beautiful" views & the villa is located in the right spot on the island. Your cleaning lady will like us as we left it as we found it.
