Boatman Point villa description

AcquaBlu has all the luxuries of a villa but it feels like a home, because it was our home! It's 4800 square feet, with 7 porches and balconies, a 38' x 12' pool, a library, a state of the art kitchen, 4 uniquely themed bedrooms, gorgeous gardens, a separate media room with a pull-out bed, a laundry room and breakfast area, and a wine cellar stocked with the best Italian and French wines.

The villa is located in a quiet community called Boatman Point overlooking Hart Bay, Rendezvous Bay, St. Thomas, and the vast Caribbean Sea. We chose to build our house here because of the stunning views, the privacy, and the constant ocean breezes.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: The Miller family has been in love with St. John for over 50 years. Dale has been coming to the Virgin Islands since the days of the first Pan Am service in the 1960's. Back then you needed a machete to cut your way through to the North Shore Beaches. It was quite an adventure. Janet has been coming to St. John since the early eighties, and though the North Shore Road was not overgrown, getting there was still a Jeep adventure--if you could manage to rent one of the eight available jeeps on island. Now St. John has grown up, but it is still pristine since 3/4 of the island is US National Park. We built our first house on Gifft Hill in 1989. We used it as a rental house and traveled back and forth between Connecticut and St. John. Our daughter Megan grew up between our two worlds. Finally in 1995 we decided to move down here permanently. AcquaBlu is our second St. John home, completed in 2005. We lived there for 5 years but decided it was a little too big for us. Megan went off to Davidson College, so it was just the two of us and we decided we wanted to travel. Dale built a little house nearby and now we come and go as we please.

                  Why the Owner Chose Boatman Point:
                  This is the second home we built on St. John, so we learned a lot. We could have bought anywhere: beachfront, mountain top, rainforest, East End, Coral Bay or Cruz Bay. We spent 3 years selecting this lot. Primarily it was the breezes and perfect views that sold us on the location: never muggy, never buggy, never hot we catch the Tradewinds year round. Plus we have a night time view of the twinkling lights of St. Thomas and the sunrise over Ram's Head Point in the morning, plus the gorgeous ocean views and the sounds of the sea. We also loved the Boatman Point community. It's safe, quiet, and very private.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  Acqua Blu is part of the Boatman Point Association with its own rubble beach reserved for owners and their guests (that would be you). Hart Bay is a 5 minute walking trail away. As part of a private association, it is accessible only via one well maintained concrete road.
