Property description

Apito is a casually elegant home on the island of St. John located within the National Park boundaries. Completed in June of 2009, this home was built and furnished with the complete comfort and relaxation of guests in mind. Fully air conditioned, it is ecologically sensitive yet delightfully fun and upscale. Located high atop Mamey Peak at approximately 940' above sea level, it is near the geographic center of the island and less than a five minute drive to the famous North Shore beaches. As you enter Apito though its exquisitely carved entry door, you'll be greeted with extensive travertine tile work, rich mahogany and pear wood furnishings, quality finishes and oil rubbed bronze fixtures.

Be sure to check out the web site for pictures and our Construction Blog on how Apito was conceived and constructed!

Interior square footage of 1,185 sq ft plus 1200 sq ft of outside living area.


Additional Tidbits...: Apito has 2 large master suite bedrooms and fully tiled bath rooms. Each bedroom has a king sized bed and pillow top mattresses to insure a peaceful nights sleep. The very private pool and pool deck area offer spectacular views of Bordeaux mountain, Coral Bay, St. John and the British Virgin Islands. The mountain breezes typically make this area many degrees cooler than the lower lying areas of Cruz and Coral Bay.

The kitchen has all of the modern conveniences. A full size dishwasher, energy efficient Liebherr refrigerator, microwave, 5-Burner, dual fuel stove and double oven and a garbage disposal (one of the few on St. John!), along with virtually every cooking utensil a gourmet cook could desire. Because we know how aggravating it is to buy every day items when you stay at a villa, Apito maintains a supply of sugar, flour, herbs, spices , and cooking oils along with dish towels, paper towels, trash bags, baggies, dish and clothes detergents, etc. so you DON'T have to spend hard earned vacation money on the simple necessities of everyday life.

Apito is a very private villa while at the same time being very conveniently located to all St. John has to offer.

We hope you'll decide to stay at Apito!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My name is Tom. Lori, my beloved wife of 26 years, and I have two boys Alex and Conner, although they were much younger when all of this began. My first trip to St. John was in 1978 when my parents chartered a bareboat out of Tortola for a two week vacation. Needless to say, I fell in love with the islands, and the hook was firmly set. While Lori and I have always loved the Caribbean and have traveled to several islands over the years, after the kids were born, we were not able to afford a trip back to the Virgin Islands for a long time. Our first trip to the Virgin Islands as a family finally occurred in 1997. This is the year we finally reached a station in life that allowed us to show our kids the beauty of St. John. We chartered our own boat the following year and have been returning as often as we can ever since. Over the years, we have always dreamed of owning a little piece of this rock, and that dream became a reality late in 2005.

Why the Owner Chose Mamey Peak:
We began looking for property on St. John in 2005 and decided to purchase a lot on Mamey Peak for its stunning views, cool mountain breezes and geographically central location. We didn't want the crowded, hustle, bustle of Cruz Bay, but also didn't want to be as far out as Coral Bay or the East End. We wanted the best of all worlds and we think we found it on Mamey Peak.
