Botany Bay villa description

The Location: Siren's Song is located within an exclusive 400+ acre development, The Preserve at Botany Bay, which currently has 10 large homes on 2.5 to 15 acre lots, and a security gate manned 24/7. Siren’s Song is perched on its 2.5+ acre gated lot of cliff top land, with 700 ft of water front. A 5 min stroll takes you to the beach at Mermaids Chair, a sand bar that separates the Atlantic Ocean from the Caribbean Sea and connects St Thomas to a small island to the West, called Little St Thomas, owned by the Nature Conservancy. The beaches of sand shells, corals and pebbles are constantly changing with the winds and the tides. Just off shore the unspoiled coral reefs are alive with a multitude of live hard and soft corals and many different species of tropical fish. Your neighbors are Siren's Song's owners who live on the adjacent lot and are happy to assist if needed. The living area, dining area, five bedrooms and outdoor terrace have balconies with stunning 250+ degree sea views of uninhabited islands. On a clear day you can see St Croix to the South and Puerto Rico to the West. If you yearn for peace, serenity and tranquility away from crowds and traffic, and want an unforgettable island experience that few have been privileged to share, then Siren's Song will enchant you, yet its only a 20 min drive to downtown, abundant with activities and world class restaurants.
The House – Main Level: A terra-cotta replica Chinese emperor welcomes you into Siren's Sons' foyer where a waterfall ushers you into this luxurious villa. Ahead is a cozy sitting area with six chairs and steps leading down to the pool level below. To your right is the gourmet kitchen, breakfast bar and dining area, with alfresco dining on the terrace beyond. The terrace has a gas grill and 2 dining tables each with a sun umbrella for shade and 6 chairs. The dining area has a 12 ft dining table with 14 matching dining chairs. To your left is a powder room, the living area with three comfy white sofas and media centers. Further to the left an archway leads to 3 air conditioned bedrooms ( 2 king and 1 twin) and 2 bathrooms. The king bedroom with forest views has a separate outdoor entrance. The main level has Italian ceramic tiles on the floors, with scattered rugs and natural wood ceilings. Furnishings are largely mahogany reproduction Caribbean antiques with art work collected from around the world by the owners.
The House – Upper Level: Siren’s Song’s upper level, accessed by a stylishly curved staircase from the main level has 4 air conditioned bedrooms, each with a 4 poster, king size bed and en-suite bath, and its own private balcony with sea and island views. There is a sofa bed in a smaller air-conditioned bedroom, which has an enclosed washer / dryer laundry, perfect for small children who must be near parents. Another sofa bed is on the large atrium landing of the upper level. A deck with chairs extends along a portion of the upper level, with forest views, swept by refreshing Caribbean trade-winds. The upper level has wooden floors, with scattered rugs and wooden cathedral ceilings. Furnishings are largely mahogany reproduction Caribbean antiques with art work collected from around the world by the owners.
The House – Pool Level: At the pool level, five fountains cascade into the infinity edge pool, which overlooks the lower level gardens, Caribbean Sea and several uninhabited islands. The pool is four feet deep and has benches along the sides for sitting in the pool. The pool is surrounded by green lawns and lawn furniture and there is a double sink wet bar. Additionally the pool level has a second grill and a refrigerator. There is also exercise equipment, pool toys, beach toys, a half bathroom, outdoor shower and second washer and dryer. Under the wet bar is snorkel equipment pool exercise equipment and fishing gear.
The Beach: On the beach to the East of Mermaids Chair, the land belongs to the owners of Siren's Song and they have for your enjoyment some umbrellas for shade, tables chairs and loungers. There are also 3 kayaks. From Mermaids Chair you can take a short hike across Little St Thomas to natural boulder rock pools washed by the sea. For the more adventurous a mile hike will take you to another beach within The Preserve at Botany Bay, called Sandy Bay. Mermaids Chair, Little St Thomas and Sandy Bay are generally deserted and you will probably be the only people there. Spend your sun spangled days snorkeling, shelling, beachcombing, fishing, hiking, kayaking, picnicking and luxuriating in the natural boulder pools.

Glorious views from Siren's Song overlook several deserted islands in the Caribbean Sea as well as Mermaids Chair, a sand bar that separates the Caribbean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean and connects St Thomas with Little St Thomas, a small island owned by the Nature Conservancy. Siren's Song is just a five minute stroll to the beach. Deer, parrots, iguana and seabirds abound within The Preserve at Botany Bay. Life under the sea is teeming with many different varieties of corals and tropical fish; as well as dolphins, conch and turtles.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: I am Lynda and I have lived in the US Virgin Islands for 24 years. The first 10 years within the National Park on St John, and thereafter at Botany Bay, which is so much nicer than St John. My husband Marshall has lived on St Thomas for 19 years. We have retired here and love it so much we have even built our crypt!

                          Why the Owner Chose Botany Bay:
                          We built Siren's Song on the lot adjacent to our own home. We just love it here and although we travel the world, we have never found anything, anywhere more wonderful than this location.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Peace, serenity, space, amazing views, fabulous night skies - all away from the maddening crowds; yet very convenient being only 8 miles from the airport, 7 miles from lots of restaurants and bars, 15 miles from the golf club, etc
