Property description

La Dolce Vita is a charming, 2 bedroom, 3 bath St. John Waterfront rental located just south of the peaceful town of Coral Bay. Surrounded by 376 ft of pristine shoreline and breathtaking views of the Caribbean, La Dolce Vita sits on an acre of lush tropical landscaping waiting for you to explore . Native stone retaining walls and stairs lead you to a sunbathing deck and the waters edge, inviting a refreshing swim or snorkel. An exceptional spot to begin or end the day in peaceful meditation.

The U shaped, paved driveway makes for easy in and out access as well as ample parking for several cars.

Custom mahogany cabinets, Corian countertops and Italian tile floors bring warmth and elegance along with easy maintenance. The house is tastefully and comfortably furnished and the ocean breeze flows freely through every room. Though not really necessary, the bedrooms are air conditioned. Most of the time, guests find their favorite spot in the hammock or in one of the over sized chairs on the terrace. A perfect place to relax and enjoy as the balconies have a unique railing system that allows for unobstructed water views and the feeling of being on a cruise ship instead of on land.

There are actually 2 incredibly well equipped kitchens. One of the bedrooms is also a separate studio, allowing for greater versatility and privacy when you are more than 2 people. It has a separate driveway entrance and stone stairway leading to the lower garden and water.
La Dolce Vita is a privately owned and managed home. The owners have lived on St. John since 2000 and are ready to assist you in anyway they can to assure you have a great vacation. 'Captain' Fernando is your on-island host and will thrill you with his enthusiasm and dedication to the St. John lifestyle. Be sure to ask about 'Fernando's Republic', which is a 30' Hunter, for a memorable day on the water snorkeling around St. John or a trip to the BVI's.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We were both born in the mountains. One is from Colorado and the other from Northern Italy. La Dolce Vita was created out of the labors of love. We hope you will enjoy our home and property as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Coral Bay:
I think it was really the people that made us choose to move to St. John. Great community spirit. People always say that they want to 'retire' and move to an island. (We moved but we didn't retire!!!)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Having a house on the water in St. John is an incredible luxury. Sometimes the water is so clear and still we feel we're looking into an aquarium instead of the ocean. Having an acre of waterfront land is great because you don't feel any neighbors and the gardens are beautifully landscaped so one can really walk around and enjoy the property.
