Property description

PEBBLE BEACH is a spacious 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath, stone and masonry home with spa located in a spectacular, natural setting with 370 feet of waterfront. Stunning wraparound views of distant mountains and turquoise seas greet you as you enter the house. Pathways and terraces surround the house and wind through colorful flowering plants, wild orchids and tropical landscaping.

A stairway leads from the house to your own snorkeling beach A second pocket pebble beach is accessible by swimming, a secret private hideaway perfect for honeymooners or lovers. Both beaches consist of pebbles over sand, are well protected and calm, and offer excellent snorkeling, swimming sunbathing. Follow turtles or schools of blue tang between the sea fans and over coral heads.

Elk and brain coral, colorful queen angelfish, parrot fish, puffers, sergeant majors and schools of other tropical fish provide a natural aquarium around the house. Another beach and more excellent snorkeling are a 5 minute walk away at Haulover Bay.

Large screened sliding glass doors provide stunning 270 degree views of sparkling bays and green mountains and allow the constant tradewinds to keep the house cool. All three bedrooms have air conditioning.

Relax in the living room, on the deck or in the hammock and watch the pelicans dive, the fish jump or the turtles surface in the brilliantly clear, 80 degree waters below you. Watch the wind play on the water, yachts sail by and spectacular sunsets as you relax in the spa with after a full day of snorkeling or exploring. The kitchen is a cook's dream with a pantry and water views on three sides.

The spacious master bedroom with a king and a daybed opens to its own deck for sunrise viewing and water views. Stairs off the deck lead to down the Kitchen/LR level, the lower BR and the beach. A spacious tiled 2 sink bathroom with shower joins the master bedroom.

The second master bedroom with king has a private entrance, a private deck with sunset and water views overlooking Haulover Bay the the National Park land and water. It has a large 2 sink bathroom with enclosed garden shower.

The third bedroom and fresh air bath with shower is down one flight of stairs from the main floor, with a large deck/sitting area, also with water views. The bed can be prepared as two twins or a king. All three bedrooms afford excellent visual and sound privacy from the others. Enjoy your dream vacation at Pebble Cove and you'll return again and again. This is the place for people who love nature, beauty and snorkeling.

You can rent kayaks locally and keep them on the beach, making it easy to explore the protected surrounding waters.

Relax in the 6 person spa on the waterfront deck. Keep it cool and use as a dip pool or warm it up for a hot tub, your choice. With great swimming in year round calm waters of the bay you have a spectacular nature-made pool just steps away!

During high season there is the National Park Seminar Series with guided hikes, kayak or architectural tours with local experts.

Annual events to challenge your fitness include: September - The Love City Triathlon, February - 8 Tuff Miles, May - Beach to Beach Power Swim St. John School of the Arts offers a concert series.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: After sailing yachts for years we chose to settle on St. John to raise a family. We were looking for a home that would keep us close to the sea and the joys of the underwater world. Pebble Cove seemed to fit the bill perfectly. It is as close to living on a boat as we could find while living on land. We have enjoyed Pebble Cove as our special place for many years. We currently reside on Gift Hill, a short walk from the high school to give our daughters easy access to school. This allows us to share Pebble Cove with our many repeat guests who return year after year.

Why the Owner Chose East End:
We found Pebble Cove for sale as we drove in the beautiful community of East End and it looked like a small property from the road. We were blown away when we walked through the front door into foyer of native stone and a panorama of ocean views and mountains through the archway. We later got married under that same archway. In our wildest dreams we had never imagined owning such a piece of paradise but we knew immediately that we must work out a way. And we did!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
In our way of thinking a pebble beach is preferable to a sand beach because, as snorkelers and divers, we look for the teeming colorful tropical sea life that is found on and near coral reefs. Sand beaches in contrast have less visible life as the sand continually moves and keeps the coral from growing. At Pebble Cove we found the endless aquarium that we love and in a protective bay that allows comfortable swimming all year round, unlike the North Shore where winter swells stir up the water and surf. We also love the proximity to nature and the sea that this East End home offers, where we can fall asleep to the sound of the water lapping on the shore of our own beach. Our many repeat guests share these same joys and fill our guest books with stories of beautiful days enjoying the water and house.
