  • Description

    From the moment you cross the threshold at SolMates, you'll find yourself beginning to relax. Everything at this private oceanview condo in the desirable Villa Madeleine complex has been designed to instill a sense of peace, comfort and happiness.
    The heart of the home is the private pool and pool deck. The rest of the house is built around it, with French doors (and new screen doors) from every room providing maximum views, breezes and privacy.
    The two luxurious master bedroom suites are at opposite ends of the house. The primary master bedroom features a mahogany king size bed, and the second master features a new (2015) king bed that can also be converted into 2 twin beds. Each master suite has a large bathroom with pink marble walk-in shower and separate water-closet. Both bedrooms also have AC, cable TVs, ceiling fans, views of the ocean and hillside, and French doors out to the pool deck.
    The pool and deck are furnished and equipped for floating, sunning, dining, and livin’, island style! You may never want to leave!
    For times indoors, the living/dining room features new (2015) comfortable furnishings for watching movies on the flat screen cable TV or WiFi, listening to your favorite tunes via the Bluetooth stereo speakers, and just kicking back.
    The galley kitchen is well-equipped for serving cocktails, snacks, and full meals. A gas grill is sheltered from the sea breezes on the separate grilling patio, under the shade of palm trees.
    For dining at home, there's a cozy rattan table for 4, or an umbrella-shaded patio table by the pool.
    While you may never want to leave SolMates, there is so much more to enjoy on St Croix! In addition to tennis on the grounds and golf just minutes away, SolMates is convenient to all island activities — beaches, scuba and snorkeling, boating and other water sports, restaurants, shopping, and a casino, and historical sites.
    SolMates is a perfect haven for a couple wanting a romantic getaway, or two couples traveling together. Also great for vacationing friends, or families with teenagers.

      The Property Managers Robin and Clyde were so welcoming and friendly! We wish we were back on St Croix right now. The private pool was very relaxing. The layout of the Villa is perfect for two couples, internet speed was good and reliable. Too many amazing restaurants on the island to choose from but do not miss 40 Strand and Galangal our favorites.

    • excellent place

      Reviewed by James K. on January 17, 2017 for their trip during December 2016

      two of us spent a week here and we had an excellent time. The Villa was extremely clean and was ready for our arrival. The kitchen was well stocked with staples although we did not do hardly any cooking at all. The coffee maker by the way takes cone type filters. The bathrooms were very nice and they were stocked also with dove soap and hair shampoo. The water in the pool was a little too cold for my taste but it is December. I did however love laying out on the terrace and getting some nice sun. for general information the Villa is on the east side of the island. It will take about 40 to 45 minutes to get to Frederiksted if you choose to drive there. it takes about 15 minutes to get to Christiansted. I rented a jeep which I'm very happy I did because the roads on St. Croix have more potholes than the entire state of Michigan. And trust me Michigan has a lot of potholes! Robin was an excellent hostess and met me at a central location and took me to the Villa. She showed me everything that I needed to know and was very helpful. The Villa also has a stacked washer and dryer in the second bedroom. We did use that a lot so I was happy that it was there. if you wish to walk down to the casino you can do so it's not that bad, although the walk back up the hill might be a little problem if you have trouble walking. overall it was an excellent vacation and the vast majority of the reason is because of the Villa being so nice.

      Owner Response: Thank you so much for sharing your experience at SolMates St Croix @ Villa Madeleine. We're so glad you had a lovely vacation, and hope to see you again sometime soon!

      Before getting ready to greet the Sea and begin another day's exploration of the rich landscape that STX has to offer, I enjoy sitting by this rental property's poolside in the early morning spying on the cloud formations on the horizon and anticipating the imminent sunrise. I do this again at night, except that now it is the Southern Cross and Scorpius that I am engrossed by. With all the lights out but the shadows of the surrounding hills still recognizable, I would also take a quiet dip at the pool, to recreate my college-day experiences retreating in an aboriginal valley crouched in a mile-high mountain in Taiwan. Staying in this property was unforgettable. It was paradisal, divine, mesmerizing, and totally empowering for a vacationer like me!

      Owner Response: Dear Teddie K., Wow, thank you for your beautiful recollection of what it's like to stay at SolMates St. Croix! We're so happy you enjoyed your visit, and hope you will join us again sometime soon!

      Reviewed by Holly R. on December 14, 2016 for their trip during November 2016

      SolMates is a lovely, private retreat on the gorgeous east side of the island, but still well within easy driving distance of Christiansted. The nearby restaurants are welcoming and offer some of the best seafood I've ever had. It is easy to find snorkeling, sailing, and other wonderful excursions. After a busy day, you can head back to the villa for a relaxing dip in the private pool or lounge on the patio with great views of the ocean and local flora and fauna. I loved every minute and can't wait to go back!

      Owner Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review! We're so glad you had a great time at SolMates, and we'd love to have you come back!

    • Excellent

      Reviewed by Damian R. on December 12, 2016 for their trip during November 2016

      The accommodations at the Villa were excellent. The guest room was spacious and the bath was quite luxurious. Of course the pool was just perfect for a dip anytime day or night and the views were very impressive. We had tons of fun snorkeling off Buck Island on Llewlyn Westermans trimaran. The entire sail was just fabulous. The Tan Tan tour was not for the faint of heart but gave us great memories and good cocktail conversation! Ask for Kevin and Kareem, they are drivers, mon! We ate at so many good places it is hard to pick just one but Blue Water Terrace was exceptional. Two days of beach time at Cane Bay were not enough. The Botanical Gardens at St. George's Plantation are not to be missed even if you are not a plant person. What a way to spend Thanksgiving week.DRR Lyme, CT

    • Wanted to never leave!

      Reviewed by Diver G. on September 09, 2016 for their trip during April 2016

      SolMates exceeded our high expectations. We wanted a quiet place with lots of privacy, all the comforts of home without any of the distractions, and easy access to beaches, sailing and diving. This place scored on all, plus! Loved the pool, the bed is so comfortable, the kitchen is small but has everything one could need (who wants to spend vacation in the kitchen anyway?!). The week ended too quickly. We dream of returning soon.

    • Charming Villa

      Reviewed by Jennifer B. on August 27, 2016 for their trip during July 2016

      This lovely villa is charming and a favorite vacation spot. I'm already planning a return visit. The interior design fits perfectly and could be featured in any design magazine. This gated community villa is located in a quiet and private area tucked away but still just 5 min from restaurants, beaches, golf or a local favorite pub. You can tell the owners love this special place. They've thought of everything. I'm equally now in love with the concept of having a refreshing pool ready for each day's return home. Believe me, It was so hard to leave. Thank you for making my stay such a wonderful memory. I've told friends about SolMates and can't wait to get back. For this beach lover and diver, it fit all that I love so well. The ocean and terrain views and Caribbean air were simply incredible. (No air conditioning needed at night -- even in July.) Yea, I'm hooked!! Jen

      Owner Response: Dear Jen, Thank you for your review! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay @ Sol Mates! It sounds like you love the place as much as we do! We look forward to having you visit again soon!

    • Vacation Paradise

      Reviewed by Gordie from Niantic, CT on August 25, 2016 for their trip during August 2015

      The moment I entered the villa, I took a deep vacation-sized sigh. The nicely furnished main living area had two French doors that offered a view and entrance to the villa's own private pool, and a breathtaking view of the ocean. Both the master and guest suites had French doors that opened to the pool. The king size bed in the master suite, where we stayed, had an incredibly comfortable and beautiful 4-poster bed, from which we could look out through French doors to the pool and the ocean beyond. What a sight to behold when we opened our eyes in the morning! Our days began with breakfast at the umbrella table on the pool lanai overlooking the blue and turquoise sea. The guest suite was also lovely with a wonderful view. At night, breezes off the ocean kept the rooms cool and comfortable, and the ceiling fans kept the air moving day and night. Air conditioning was available, but we didn't go to St. Croix to be closed up in AC. We loved the island and did some touring on our own. We enjoyed swimming and snorkeling at the local beaches and eating lunch or dinner at some of the wonderful restaurants set in various locations along the ocean front. In the town centers, we did a bit of shopping. We were absolutely in vacation mode.We were always delighted to return "home" to the villa to relax, and take a swim in the pool after having dinner out, or to fix a light dinner in the well-equipped kitchen and then spend a quiet evening talking or reading. The detached villa provided us with incredible privacy, which we loved. Whether we were inside the villa, dining by or swimming in the pool. Our week went by much too quickly. Since I arrived home, I've been telling my friends about this wonderful vacation villa. They want the same experience. Whether you're a beachcomber, a swimmer, scuba diver, golfer, someone interested in sailing, kayaking, etc., or just enjoy touring the beautiful island, or lounging by or in the pool, you'll love staying in this inviting, and comfortable villa. It has everything that makes an island vacation a dream come true. Recommended for: Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Adventure Seekers, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers

    • Paradise Inside and Out!

      Reviewed by Julie from Connecticut on August 22, 2016 for their trip during June 2016

      We just got back from a lovely stay at Solmates, St. Croix. The villa is gorgeous and so comfortable. The pool is fantastic, of course, as is the view! But I also just loved lounging around and reading with the breeze brought in by the overhead fans. Very peaceful. We loved St. Croix! We snorkeled as much as we could and would highly recommend the Buck Island tours via Caribbean Sea Adventure and the Snookah Dive in Cane Bay via Aquaman. We had a lovely meal at Duggan's Reef, which is just across the drive from Solmates and were very impressed by the Seaside Market in Christiansted to get our food to eat in. All in all, it was a great vacation and we're already planning on what to do on our next trip! Thank you so much!

    • A great place in every respect to relax and enjoy.

      Date of stay: October 13, 2015 Outstanding in all respects SolMates is a true slice of paradise Suddenly I realized I was not in Iowa anymore -- or even in Connecticut, for that matter. The gentle ocean breezes, the warm sun and warm friendly island people all told me that I could spend a lot more time on St. Croix and at Solmates. SolMates, with its fantastic ocean view and great East End location, had every amenity. (It could use a toaster upgrade, however.) The new furnishings were a pleasure. The private pool, especially in the early mornings and late afternoons, was a sheer delight. The nearby eateries offered a variety of great food. I especially enjoyed The Pickled Greek for the food, fun, and unique homemade baklava ice cream. Duggin's Reef, just down the hill, was comparable to any fine dining anywhere, in my experience. The food and drinks were outstanding. All in all -- SolMates is a true slice of paradise... "I go to come back!"
