LOCATION.Cruz Views is tucked into a tropical hillside 160 feet above the town of Cruz Bay. The units all face southwest to capture lots of sun and picturesque views of turquoise seas by day, memorable sunsets at days end, and the twinkling lights of distant islands at night. It’s an easy walk into Cruz Bay (downhill) but the walk back to Cruz Views is a bit more challenging, especially if you have enjoyed a few of the island’s infamous rum punches.
DESIGN. These 10 condos are located in 3 buildings which surround the pool and sundeck. Units 1 – 4 are above the pool, while units 5-7 and 8-10 are below the pool, but all share the beautiful views. The grounds are lushly landscaped with many varieties of colorful tropical plants and flowers, including areca and coconut palms, bougainvillea, croutons, and frangi pangi. On site parking for your jeep is provided as well as a gas BBQ for outdoor grilling.
Caribbean Villas’ Comments. All Cruz Views units have tiled floors, cathedral ceilings, living and dining areas with Ficks Reed furniture, fully equipped kitchens, a private bedroom with a queen bed, tiled baths with garden showers, and a private deck with Brown Jordan deck furniture and lovely views. Units 2, 6, 7, 8, and 9 have one bedroom with a queen bed, and units 1, 3, 4, 5 and 10 also have a loft bedroom with a ships ladder access and two twin beds. All units have multiple ceiling fans and are also fully screened with many opening doors and windows to allow the trade winds to circulate. Units 1, 7 and 10 have central a/c that cools the entire unit while the remaining units have a/c in either one or both bedrooms. Cruz Views Platinum Units #7 and #10 are Platinum units, meaning that they are the best that Cruz Views offers, and as expected, they cost a bit more than a standard unit.
