Description:Absolutely magnificent in every way! Isla Vista commands sweeping sea views from a breezy hillside, tucked in its own private enclave behind an electronic gate. Lushly landscaped grounds surround this very secluded two-bedroom luxury home, bordered by pristine Virgin Islands National Park lands, but conveniently just a few minutes' drive into Cruz Bay. Isla Vista features a spacious two-level floor plan with stunning custom interiors, expanded by dramatic island views stretching to the horizon. nArriving into the paved courtyard, Isla Vista's arched portico ushers you into the gallery. A grand arched doorway trimmed with island mahogany frames the pool and the adjoining jacuzzi just outside, with a tiled travertine deck for sunbathing punctuated by gardens and stately palm trees, the pool area overlooks a picture postcard panorama of sky and sea, Cruz Bay below, the green expanse of unspoiled National Park, and St. Thomas in the distance. nThe gallery opens to the Great Room, offering plush sofas for conversation, a mahogany and marble wet bar for cocktails, and a formal dining area. On the other side of the entry hallway is Isla Vista's fantastic gourmet kitchen. With lots of space for chefs and onlookers, this grand area is beautifully crafted in mahogany cabinetry, granite countertops, and features a professional gas cooktop, a bountiful array of cooking and serving pieces, lots of small appliances including an ice cream maker, and an office nook - all wonderfully laid out and equipped. Adjoining the kitchen is a separate open-air covered barbeque room with a stainless steel gas grill. nFrom the kitchen through the gallery, past an eye-catching large trompe l'oeil wall mural, is the villa's media room. A sofa and reclining chair beckon for reading, relaxing and watching satellite TV or the latest DVD movie. An arched door connects to the pool deck right outside. Just beyond the media room is the air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suite, a sophisticated pool-level sanctuary with a lavish bath with double sinks and a separate WC. Mahogany french doors connect this suite to the pool and sun deck, perfect for an impromptu midnight swim in the heated pool. nA graceful staircase ascends from Isla Vista's main-level gallery to the opulent master suite. The modern mahogany four-poster king bed, personally designed with handcarved pineapple accents, faces a wide arched doorway which escorts you out to the dramatic curved balcony set with table and chairs for two. This favorite spot overlooks the pool and the magnificent sea vistas in the distance, this balcony is the place to be for cocktails, savoring technicolor sunsets every evening. The large master bath is pure splendor, with a sleek travertine vanity with double sinks, a separate WC, a step-out balcony, and just outside, your own private alfresco shower pavilion bordered by serpentine walls which curve around manicured gardens. The shower pavilion expands into a tiled terrace, a private and peaceful spot for reading and quality time together. nIsla Vista's exclusive breeze-swept Caneel Hill location and its amazing views are indeed impressive, but the artful interior design and its polished and luxe detail put this home in a special class by itself: cool, smooth travertine floors throughout, vaulted cypress ceilings, rich mahogany cabinetry (some with handcarved detail), windows and doors, exquisitely-designed custom lighting inside and out, and artistic stained glass windows. The motif of grand arches continues throughout Isla Vista, gracefully melding one part of this villa with another, the floor plan has a very pleasing flow and provides lots of space and seclusion. Designer furnishings are absolutely top-notch, elegant and placed with your ease and comfort in mind. nIt's only a quick 5-minute drive into Cruz Bay, with all of St. John's shopping and dining pleasures conveniently nearby. nRefined perfection and luxurious privacy reign at Isla Vista. Share the many sun-kissed pleasures of St. John and the beauty of this superb home - what a memorable backdrop to lazy days spent here unwinding and lazing in the sun. This is the ultimate couples' vacation oasis - romantic, unparalleled, and way beyond five stars. Wonderful! nIsla Vista's tenant will from time to time stay in the apartment above Isla Vista's double garage, outside the villa. However, you will probably not see or hear from her at all, unless you happen to meet her by chance outside the villa in the driveway area. She cannot see into the villa or to the pool, and will not enter Isla Vista during your stay - so your total privacy is assured within Isla Vista. nChildren over 15 welcome. nSt. John is the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands. It features beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise waters, colorful coral and tropical fish, and green velvet hills. Two thirds of the island is the Virgin Islands National Park so the gorgeous beaches and forests will remain untouched and be accessible to everyone. Tour the national park by jeep or safari bus or hike the trails led by a park ranger. St. John is a peaceful, uncommercialized paradise yet still offers every facility and amenity that a resort has to offer. There is lots to do whether it be on land or in the water.

These suites all enjoy central air-conditioning, large ensuite baths tiled in charming designs, and via screened french doors, each has its own balcony. One of these five upstairs suites is À La Mer 's master suite, a larger suite with a king four-poster bed, a private roofed patio with seating, and a spacious bath.

This expansive outdoor living area, where you 'll spend most of your time, also has two gas grills, one of them built into a charming garden patio, a ping-pong table for family championship competitions, and a deck lined with cushioned chaise lounges for sun worshippers. The pool is absolutely spectacular! It has a four-inch deep shallow shelf, perfect for sun loungers and for small children, a waterfall, and is bordered on the ocean side with a beach, a strip of white sand set with more chaise lounges and a stone fire pit. The pool also features a swim-up bar with underwater bar stools at the pool cabana, a wonderful poolside entertainment pavilion with large-screen cable TV and DVD player, plus a wet bar with icemaker, beverage cooler and dishwasher. An electronic shutter rolls down at a touch of a button to secure the pool cabana when not being used. The pool cabana also has a handy powder room and outside shower. For experienced divers, there is access from the coral-and-sand waterfront into Great Cruz Bay for snorkeling - and you can also visit The Westin Resort 's lovely white sand beach further down the Bay, about a 10-minute walk away. nÀ La Mer 's Cottage is off to the side of the Main Villa, and on its upper level, offers a secluded fully-air-conditioned apartment suite, complete with a full kitchen, a bedroom with two queen beds and bath, a double-twin trundle bed in the living area for children under 16 years old, and a porch outside covered by latticework.

Through an electronic gate and from the driveway courtyard, a native stone entryway welcomes you, a graceful coralstone staircase curves down to the expansive terrace where an Italian baroque lion 's head fountain spouts a bubbling welcome. A second Italian marble fountain gurgles at the pool 's edge, a large infinity-edge pool which blends into the magnificent 180-degree view of Peter Bay below and the Caribbean Sea beyond, a vista dotted with the islets and cays of the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. All of the perfect National Park beaches, such as Trunk and Cinnamon Bays, are less than a 10-minute easy drive from Villa Carlota. nThe villa 's main pavilion, centrally air-conditioned with adjustable controls, features a spacious Great Room (the India Room) which incorporates a large gourmet kitchen done with a cypress ceiling, Brazilian granite, custom mahogany cabinetry, and bordered by a long countertop with stools.

It features beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise waters, colorful coral and tropical fish, and green velvet hills. Two thirds of the island is the Virgin Islands National Park so the gorgeous beaches and forests will remain untouched and be accessible to everyone. Tour the national park by jeep or safari bus or hike the trails led by a park ranger. St. John is a peaceful, uncommercialized paradise yet still offers every facility and amenity that a resort has to offer. There is lots to do whether it be on land or in the water.
Description:Utterly private and so romantic, Mooncottage will delight couples seeking a lovers' hideaway and a secluded spot for vacationing. Tucked within lush gardens and set high on a green hill reached via a winding island road, Mooncottage commands one of the best views on St. John - a sweeping 180-degree blue and green panorama of Coral Bay, Tortola, Norman Island and Virgin Gorda. A stone staircase ushers you into the soothing zen magic of Mooncottage: two pavilions crafted in native stonework bordered by a graveled garden courtyard set with a bubbling koi pond, and connected by a heated pool, with an adjacent covered verandah overlooking the endless Caribbean horizon. nThe Main House is tastefully done with upholstered sofas and chairs and a comfortable articulated chaise lounge which folds flat for sleeping, and is accented with teak and other exotic hardwoods. The living area shares space with the colorful gourmet kitchen and a full bath with a moon window. The restful aura of this pavilion is completed by the shaded porch just outside, which beckons relaxation. Adjacent is the master bedroom pavilion with an outside shower, a handmade teak four-poster queen bed, and a full bath. Linens are 100 per cent Egyptian cotton. The architecture, Feng Shui, eclectic furnishings and this villa's very serene and spiritual ambience are simplicity itself, but exceptional in so many ways. nSuperbly equipped, Mooncottage offers many excellent amenities, including satellite internet access for your laptop and complimentary welcome gifts for all guests. Set on a half acre of natural Caribbean beauty, Mooncottage is exactly the right size, totally private, fully screened and graced with lovely gardens, banana, papaya, mampoo and flowering Chapeau Napoleon trees. Its high elevation and constant island tradewinds assure cool comfort, and it offers tranquility and closeness to nature, with turtle doves cooing, surf whispering below and night skies offering you the moon and a million stars. A short drive down the hill to Coral Bay puts you within minutes of bars, restaurants and beaches - but you may decide to stay at Mooncottage and just savor the peace, the view and each other. Unique and exceptional. nHOW IS THE ROAD UP TO MOONCOTTAGE? Mooncottage is located in Calabash Boom - a lovely, secluded, quiet community. The Calabash Boom Road to Mooncottage is owned by the VI Territory and is largely unpaved. Seasonally, it can sometimes get pretty bumpy. However, any 4-wheel drive vehicle can handle it easily, renting a 4-wheel drive vehicle is required for Mooncottage. In late 2010 and 2011, some sections of the road were paved, and some concrete water bars were installed to help keep the road in better shape. Is it perfect? No. It will only be perfect when it is completely paved, which won't happen for a while. Is it navigable? ABSOLUTELY! Actually, many guests think it's fun going up and down! But, the road is now routinely maintained to make it as smooth as it can possibly be. nNOTES: One day of maid service if rental is for 4 persons,or for 10 days or more. Children over 12 years old permitted. nThere is an additional charge for a third or fourth occupant. nSt. John is the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

A wraparound balcony surrounds three sides of the gallery, with one side featuring a gas grill and wine cooler. Two steps lead to the private pool and sun deck, with chaise lounges for sunbathing and a small cocktail area for two. nA short stone staircase leads through lush landscaping down to this villa's next tier, offering a stone terrace with a large hot tub. A few more steps lead to a secluded waterfront overlook of Peter Bay's coral reef, rugged lava shoreline and the beautiful National Park waters and surrounding hills. This overlook is named Anniversary Point in celebration of its discovery on the owners' 25th wedding anniversary. Anniversary Point is a special intimate nook for two, designed to share a glass of wine and quiet moments together. Additional stone steps along the water's edge, lighted for balmy nights, lead gently down to the totally private Beach Terrace perched just 10 feet above the rolling ocean waves. Chaise lounges and chairs provide the perfect setting to watch pelicans diving for fry, turtles swimming by and enjoying the song of the ocean and pristine views that go on forever.
