Rendezvous Bay villa description

Mare Blu Villa is a amazing new addition to St. John's beautiful landscape. Overlooking Rendezvous Bay , this colorful, 10,000 sq. ft. villa mirrors the dramatic hues of the Caribbean scenery. Mare Blu is considered to be one of the most luxurious high-style, relaxing and private villas on the island of St. John.

After 30 years of island hopping, Mare Blu owners, Teri and Bernie Ackerman, found no match for the appeal of the friendly and culturally diverse community of St. John, nor for the beauty of its tropical forests, national parks and secluded sandy beaches. St. John is believed by many to be the most beautiful of the USVIs, if not the most beautiful island in all of the Caribbean. The vacation home of their dreams was built on a hill above the turquoise waters of Rendezvous Bay, looking south, with scenic views that stretch from the east end of St. John to St. Croix.

The Ultimate in Style and Luxury: Mare Blu's great floor plan, superb design, lighting, and finishes distinguish this spectacular villa overlooking Rendezvous Bay. Built in four spacious pavilions linked together by generous outdoor living spaces, the sparking pool and tropical gardens, Mare Blue offers full air conditioning throughout the villa. Its excellent floor plan is designed so that all of the home's living space and pool is on one level. Six large bedroom/bath suites, a stunning indoor gourmet kitchen flanked by an outdoor kitchen dining and sitting area, and a beautifully-decorated Great Room and loggia are just a start at Mare Blu.

6 Bedroom Suites for the Ultimate in Privacy: Mare Blu has six large bedroom/bathroom master suites, two located at pool level, three on the garden level and one in the pavilion above the grand veranda.

Bathrooms have double vanities, showers, and are tiled in grey granite from floor to ceiling. The Orange suite features an alfresco shower, Yellow a semi-alfresco shower and the Pink suite also offers a bathtub.

Incredible & Well Appointed Living & DIning Areas: All of the villa's living space is on the main level of the pavilion. The Great Room, with two seating areas, provides a 55' HDTV, DVD, movies, games & game table. Adjacent, the gourmet kitchen leaves nothing to be desired, even by the most discerning of gourmet cooks. Well stocked with a large variety of glassware, stemware, dinnerware & cookware, the kitchen is equipped to feed the masses with its top of the line stainless steel appliances, including a 3-door refrigerator/freezer, standard oven, microwave/convection oven and two dishwashers. Sliding glass pocket doors lead from the indoor kitchen to its outdoor kitchen providing easy service to the alfresco dining room & includes a professional gas grill, 2nd oven, icemaker & generous countertop space. The dining room joins the covered outdoor living room resulting in one expansive outdoor living space with awesome ocean views.

                                  Mare Blu Villa is a striking addition to St. John's beautiful landscape. From a hillside on the exclusive Rendezvous Bay overlooking the majestic south shore, this colorful villa mirrors the dramatic hues of the Caribbean scenery that inspired it. Mare Blu is considered to be one of the most luxurious high-style, relaxing and private villas on the island of St. John. Please be sure to visit our personal website for much more about this gorgeous home and it's surroundings.

                                  Other Activities: St. John's casual ambiance, coupled with the sense of seclusion the island provides, quickly sends visitors into a vacation state-of- mind. Once through the security gates of Mare Blu and into the villa's main pavilion, guests are not only convinced that they have escaped civilization, but are also certain they have found paradise! From a lounge chair on the veranda at Mare Blu, one may feel as if they are completely secluded, but in fact, they are only a short drive from the best of everything the island of St. John has to offer. Mare Blu is only a short distance from the festive town of Cruz Bay with its upscale shopping, trendy boutiques, gourmet markets, art galleries and fine dining. It's only a short drive to numerous bays and inlets suitable for kayaking, scuba diving, sailing, power boating and also to the renowned National Park beaches for a leisurely day of snorkeling or simply relaxing on powder white sand.

                                  Golf: For golfers, the thrill of a lifetime awaits at Mahogany Run Golf Course on St. Thomas, a Caribbean resort course rich in tropical foliage, exciting and challenging greens and spectacular vistas! The 14th hole of Mahogany Run - perched on a cliff 200 feet above a rocky inlet of the Atlantic Ocean and commanding an unlimited view of the sea and neighboring U.S. and British Virgin Islands - may well be one of the most photographed and among the most challenging of par-3 holes in the world.

                                  Designed by George and Tom Fazio and opened in 1980, Mahogany Run has attracted thousands of visitors, golfers and non-golfers, celebrities and Presidents alike - to its challenging and exciting greens. Carved and blasted out of native Blue-Bit stone resulting in an area of land just less than 100 acres, Golf Digest proclaimed that its creation was more of an engineering marvel than an architectural one. As you stand on the 14th tee box and feel the pounding surf between you and the 14th green, it is understandable why there have been no other attempts to build a golf course on St. Thomas.
