St. Croix Retreats

About This Center

At St. Croix Retreats our business model calls for partnering with retreat leaders. We mean that sincerely. While building our business plan, we realized that the major stumbling block for qualified individuals to host retreats is the many hats required to pull off a successful retreat. Locating suitable venues, finding caterers, booking excursions, arranging transportation, and taking huge financial risks that depend on their ability to market and sell their retreat spaces… it’s no wonder that most people have shied away from leading a retreat
Our business model is based on one simple premise… We take care of everything - except teaching your class. We do what we do best, so that you can do what you do best. As partners, we have a common interest and goal. A successful retreat happens if we do our job right and you do your job right. We expect no less and we give no less. A healthy partnership benefits both of us. Not only will you have a successful retreat with St. Croix Retreats, but that success will help you grow your local business as well.
Our motivation, beside it just being our nature to help folks succeed, is to see you return to St. Croix for your retreats, year after year. We have a beautiful island in St. Croix and there is much to explore. Having visited this island consistently for over 30 years before buying our home, we can attest to the fact that you will never run out of things to see or do.

We do what we do best, so that you can do what you do best. St. Croix Retreats, your partner for success.

Venue Highlights

Spacious, private, breezy, and views to live for. Our featured property, Five O’Clock on the Hill, offers several configurations to satisfy retreat attendees.

Two separate kitchen areas make it easy for large groups to cook and dine individually or together; with the main kitchen convenient to dining on the spacious covered patio.

The six foot deep swimming pool and an adjacent whirlpool are a perfect complement to this tropical home. Surrounded by stone walls the pool area is both beautiful and private… without blocking the scenery. Floating on your back at night will reveal some magnificent views on beautiful starry nights. The ambient light is minimal in the neighborhood making star gazing a wonderful pastime.

Five O’Clock on the Hill is located in East End’s private South Grapetree Bay neighborhood, adjacent to Jack’s Bay and Isaac’s Bay Beaches which are protected and maintained by the Nature Conservancy.

Grapetree Bay Beach is a short walk away and you will often find yourself alone on this beautiful private beach. Sea Turtles enjoy nesting in the solitude of this beach and can be seen hatching in the fall.

The property covers 1.6 acres and offers several private areas for outside lounging and dining. There is ample paved parking… enough to park five vehicles without blocking anyone in. Cable/Smart TV and wifi internet are also included. A separate laundry room with outside access and a half bath is near the pool area. Air conditioning is available in all of our rooms.

Enjoy our spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea!


With five bedrooms including ensuite bathrooms spread over three terraced levels, your guests will all enjoy the gorgeous sea views and spectacular starry nights from their rooms as well as their balconies. You can hear the sound of the waves throughout the villa – adding to your relaxation.

We offer a private room with a queen size bed, two rooms - each with two twin beds, two larger rooms - each with two twin beds and pull out twin bed, and a queen size pull out sofa in the living room. All of our bedrooms enjoy the same fantastic view of the Caribbean Sea. You can even lay in bed at night and watch the stars from every room. The balconies just put you that much closer.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
