About CHRISTINE MEYER
My husband renovated Southern Cross & made it an airy and gorgeous villa. We had actually rented it before we purchased it. We lived in it for a year.. it was a year of cool ocean breezes, morning coffee on the deck watching the activity in the bay and falling asleep to the Caribbean Sea crashing on the rocks below...... We pride ourselves in sharing with our guests these experiences in a comfortable and beautiful villa!.
CHRISTINE MEYER purchased this Villa in 2001
What makes this Villa unique
We have lived on St. John for 34 years, and never take the beauty, lifestyle or our amazing friends and neighbors for granted. We love when people come to St. John and are totally blown away by the natural beauty and enjoy the island we have come to be so proud to be a part of.

Amazing home, Amazing Views! STJ is my new favorite!
This was our first trip to STJ and it was almost perfect, just not long enough! First, Christine is 1 of the best property managers I have ever dealt with. We had a nightmare experience with American Air and she did everything possible to help. She is quick to respond and she feels like a private concierge answering all of your questions with patience.
The house is just like in the pictures. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. There are 2 rooms down and 2 up. They all have AC. The house had nice touches like beach towels, chairs, coolers and even some spices in the pantry.
As a first timer, I do recommend staying close to Cruz Bay if you want to be hear restaurants, the markets, bars, etc. Chocolate Hole is close enough (10 min drive- $6pp taxi) without being IN the congestion. It's a great, safe location. The views at Southern Cross are truly beautiful. You feel like you are in a movie. The house is about 18-20 minutes from the North Shore beaches. More like 30 to the furthest Maho Bay but the drive is pretty and it's own adventure. The beaches are amazing. Personal ranking of the ones we hit: Honeymoon Beach, Trunk Bay, Maho Bay and Hawksnest. Do a little research on each one to figure out what you want. If I had to come up with cons it would be the prices (expected) and the food was good, not amazing. Our biggest sticker shocks were produce ($9 blueberries and an apple for $3.50) but again, we knew this going into it. If you are there for a week or more, I would think about packing some of your food, ie. bacon packs well and is $12/pack over there!
I have been to about 6 or 7 Caribbean islands and STJ is my new favorite. Safe, absolutely gorgeous and super nice people. We had fantastic service everywhere we went, including the super fun, open-air taxis. You can book here with confidence. Have fun!
Best vacation ever
Our group of six usually travels together going to various destinations with scheduled events. This time we decided to go to St John and go without a schedule. It was the best. Beautiful property, awesome setting overlooking Chocolate Hole. Great beaches and restaurants. Very relaxing. Best vacation ever!
Southern Cross is a gorgeous place with a stunning view of Chocolate Hole. We were a group of 7 and had plenty of room. The kitchen is SO well stocked, and we enjoyed cooking there. I would love to go back someday!
Loved our stay at Southern Cross! Beautiful house....great location...very friendly and helpful owner and greeter. Could not be more pleased with our stay!
Southern Cross Villa was perfect for our group of 8 Adults. When we arrived, Dabney met us at the Jeep rental place and we followed her to Southern Cross where she showed us all around the property and gave us a run-down of do's and dont's. That was our only contact with her because there weren't any problems during our 10 night stay that required us to contact her. The villa is located only 10 minutes from Cruz Bay and is an easy drive once you do it a couple of times. The villa is just as nice in real life as it is in the pictures. The pool itself and view from the pool area is unbelievable. The villa is plenty big for 8 people and the kitchen has everything you will need. The bedrooms and bathrooms are also spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable. We had a great experience renting this villa and would definitely rent it again. It was also a pleasant experience dealing with Christine, the property owner. She was always very prompt at returning my emails and answering any questions I had.
Directions from Cruz Bay. Head towards the Westin Resort. Make the first Right after the resort onto Great Cruz Bay Rd. After the 3rd speed bump, make a Left on Great Sunset Rd. Then make 1st Right, where stone house is. Road will be concrete and then turn to dirt. The Southern Cross driveway is just past the very large unfinished stone house. DRIVEWAY Backing out of the driveway and making a sharp cut so that the back of the vehicle goes all the way to the back of the hill, you can then sharply turn to the left and once turned, follow road to the left to Great Cruz Bay Rd. Make a Right on Great Cruz Bay and then a Left on the main Rd to go to town. Alternate Driveway - once you have backed out, don't turn around, just continue up the bluff on the dirt road. When you reach the first option you have to turn, bear left instead of going up the hill. Carry on around, on the paved road, overlooking the Westin- you will be on Great Cruz Bay Rd. Turn Left at the end to go past the Westin into Cruz Bay
