VILLA GREENLEAF ON ST. CROIX
Christiansted, St. Croix 00821
(340) 719-1958, www.villagreenleaf.com
Reservations (888) 282-1001
Located just west of Christiansted atop a rolling hill over-
looking historic Salt River Bay and the Caribbean, this
lovely inn is a new arrival on the St. Croix scene. The owners
also own a luxurious inn in New England and now they've
transferred their expertise to a warmer climate. There are
only five suites and they are all air-conditioned but also have
ceiling fans. Although not identically furnished, look for
four-poster beds, rattan and mahogany furniture, colorful
local art and a screened porch where breakfast is served.
The common living room and library, furnished West In-
dian-style, has a large satellite TV and VCR/DVD player.
There is a sundeck here too. Formerly a private home, the
rooms open onto a pool and Jacuzzi. Rates here include a
rental car (a must) and breakfast. Afternoon cocktails too.
Lovely place to stay.
