There are two Estate Solitudes on St. Croix. The one you are most likely referring to is towards the east end of the island a little west of Estate Cotton Valley. This is generally an upscale area of homes with high sale prices. Many of the properties have good ocean views and views of Buck Island. It is a low crime area as it is fairly distant from the urban centers. There are no government housing projects in this region. It's a 10-15 minute drive east of Christiansted along the north shore road. Maybe about 6 miles, but the road is curvy and the speed limit is 30-35 mph. It can be a pleasant drive, as you can see the ocean much of the way. There aren't many services at the east end of the island. There are two very small convenience stores, one gas station attached to one of the stores, a deli attached to the other, one nice restaurant called Duggan's Reef, and if you continue around the end of the island to the southeast shore, you will find the Divi Carina Resort & Casino that also has a restaurant and bar.

There is another Estate Solitude in the north shore area of the west end of the island up on Scenic Drive. This is a fairly remote part of the island, but the houses there are typically very nice. The views are awesome as you would be at about 800-1000 feet of elevation. It would be about a 20 minute drive into Christiansted or 10-15 into Sunny Isle for all kinds of shopping. There are a few fast food restaurants, gas stations, convenience stores, grocery stores, etc. on the way into Sunny Isle and others on the road to C'sted. If you drop down to the north shore road, there are several popular beach bars with food and also the restaurant and bar at the Carambola Beach Resort. Another restaurant and bar is at Salt River.

Both locations are very rural. The east end of the island is more arid with grass land and cactus. The north shore of the west half of the island has a lot of rain forest area and lush vegetation.
