North Shore house description

Live the sweet life in an elegant, hilltop villa that links St. Croix’s intriguing past with today’s most luxurious lifestyles. This charming, West Indian great house embraces a 40-foot private pool and overlooks the sea with a stunning view of the Salt River Bay where Columbus arrived with his fleet in 1493.

Enter through double gates of solid mahogany to a spacious outdoor gallery. Here, catch up on your reading in a colonial planter’s chair under the shade of palm trees, or stretch out on one of three decadent cushioned, lounge beds and enjoy the sun or the stars.

A breezy gazebo is perfect for lunch, complete with a handy grill and speakers for background music. And at cocktail time, Harry’s Bar is irresistible—it’s your own private poolside pub!

From the pool area, Harry’s Bar leads into a magnificent Danish yellow great room and dining area with a spectacular window wall facing the Caribbean. Shutters lower at the touch of a button if you decide to darken the room for a movie and an armoire entertainment center is complete with DVD/VCR, iPod docking station, satellite television, and even Sirius radio. Ahead is a crisp white kitchen with all the culinary gear you might need.

The villa’s bedrooms all face the pool through individual French doors and are decorated in subtle tropical hues with tasteful classic West Indian-style furnishings. All four have private baths and air conditioning to use if you wish, though island trade winds will provide natural cooling. You’ll appreciate thoughtful touches provided for your stay-bath amenities, beach towels-even Sugar Bay House dressing gowns.

Running the length of the pool are three bedrooms. Two have twin beds that can be converted to kings, the first in spun-sugar pink with a shower/tub bath and the second in powder blue with Wedgewood accents. The third bedroom, with its soft mango glow and palm theme accessories, houses a king-size four poster bed.

At the end of the pool, steps lead up to the fourth bedroom’s pavilion with pale lime green walls, a queen-sized four poster bed, and tester canopy overhead. This spacious suite has its own wet bar with refrigerator, and another set of French doors to a patio.

Rooms feature high, beamed ceilings, traditionally employed in island residences for centuries and throughout the house are finely-crafted mahogany furnishings inspired by the plantation era, including hand-made local tiles in Danish yellow. Look closely you’ll see inlaid accents carved from authentic ballast brick brought to the island on 19th century sailing ships that carried sugar and rum back to Europe.

From the great room or the pool area, watch sailors come and go on the great bay below an outdoor museum designated as the Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve. Tour the park’s Visitor Contact Station, enjoy a refreshing swim at its white sandy beach visible from your villa, or stop by the marina to arrange a guided kayak expedition through the bay. And if you are a Scuba diver, or would enjoy learning, everything you’ll need is available at the marina’s dive center.

Your villa is ideally located at the center of the island’s north shore, an easy drive to either of the island’s two colonial towns, Christiansted or Frederiksted, for shopping, sightseeing, and fine dining. And just minutes away is Cane Bay, a spot favored by locals for its diving, snorkeling, and beachfront restaurants.

Whether you choose water sports or exploration to fill your days, you’ll find Sugar Bay House to be an ideal base. But you may decide to spend most days simply enjoying your delightful villa a destination itself that you’ll want to return to year after year.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1994

                      About the owner: Hello! My name is Jackie and I am the very lucky owner of Sugar Bay House. My husband and I fell in love with St Croix in 1986 and bought a house on this very same site in 1987. That house was destroyed by Hurricane Hugo but out of this catastrophe came the opportunity to build our dream house in 1994, the current Sugar Bay House. We have traveled to many parts of the world, being English and Australian ( and now American) but we always returned to the beauty and tranquility of St Croix and especially Sugar Bay House.We have had so many wonderful, fun times at Sugar Bay House with our family and friends and we hope to have many more. We invite you to create your own wonderful memories whatever the occasion!

                      Why the Owner Chose North Shore:
                      The views from the house are simply amazing. It is impossible to capture them in photos. The location is also close to so many great beaches and restaurants and yet is still tranquil and peaceful. We also like being able to easily reach either Fredericksted or Christiansted, the two main towns on the island. In addition, overlooking the Salt River National Park where Columbus first landed is very cool!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our outdoor living area with the amazing views and great places to either eat or sun is wonderful. Tropical living should be outdoor living and at Sugar Bay House that is certainly true. Our outdoor beds are also so relaxing whether reading a book during the day or star gazing with a glass of wine or a tropical cocktail at night. And of course there is Harry's Bar, the heart of the house where everyone gathers and shares stories at the end of a beautiful day in paradise.
