Great Cruz Bay villa description

As featured on HOUSE HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL 2013. THIS IS A NEW EPISODE as CHEZ SHELL WAS ALSO FEATURED ON HOUSE HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL 2010 WITH DIFFERENT POTENTIAL BUYERS... Chez Shell is a two bedroom Pool Villa (pool completed as of November 2011!!!!) located near the Westin Resort in Great Cruz Bay and is just 5 minutes from down town Cruz Bay. Enjoy evening sunsets over Great Cruz Bay and the twinkling lights of St. Thomas once the sun has set for the evening. The home has two Master Suites each with en-suite Master Baths with custom showers. The entire home has beautiful quarry stone floors imported from the Middle East.

The main entrance at Chez Shell is graced by Old Chicago Brick walkways and tropical gardens bordered with palm trees, fragrant frangipani flowers, tree orchids and other tropical foliage. Once you step inside the front entry, the well-appointed great room opens up before you. Through large archways, the views of Great Cruz Bay and beyond sooth your senses. Proceed through the great room and enter the completely Screened Outdoor Living Area. Beyond the Screened Outdoor Living Area is a Sun Deck with table for out door dining and the view of Great Cruz Bay, the Sandy Beach and Swaying Palm Trees at the Westin Beach Resort. The Screened in Porch area is a great spot to read a book or enjoy evening conversations over cocktails while the sun sets in the distance. Just off the kitchen/dining area you step out to the brand new 20 X 35 pool veranda featuring classic Old Chicago Brick Pavered sun deck and native stone walls overlooking Great Cruz Bay and St. Thomas Beyond. Every room is appointed with plenty of windows to ensure that you enjoy both gorgeous ocean/harbor views and garden views regardless of where you rest.

Preparing meals in Chez Shell's well-equipped kitchen is a pleasure with plenty of lighting, great air flow and ample space to prepare your meals. Dine inside adjacent to the kitchen or outdoors on the Sun Deck. There is comfortable seating for six at the either of the indoor or outdoor dining tables with views of the Ocean/Harbor and the Island of St. Thomas.

It is a wonderful Villa for families with inside access to both of the Master Bedroom Suites directly from the Great Room. The Master Suites are air conditioned, one with garden views and one with views of Great Cruz Bay Harbor and the Ocean beyond. Chez Shell also has multiple living spaces inside and out so you may enjoy the active harbor views and sunset views towards St Thomas from many different areas.

The decor is warm and inviting and in tune with Caribbean Style living. Most of the furnishings are from India, Bali, the South West United States which includes various antiques from around the world. Chez Shell was totally remodeled in 2007 by a talented builder out of New Mexico.

The house is just a short 5 minute walk to the beaches at Great Cruz Bay and Chocolate Hole and a short drive to the famous North Shore Beaches.

If you enjoy colorful awesome sunsets over the water, a convenient location and a beautiful place to stay, you'll find your perfect vacation waiting at Chez Shell

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: John and Denise have been traveling to the Island since the late 1990's and finally decided to purchase a home and live on island. We love the beach and the ocean. We also love hiking on the island as it is so picturesque. We are also Licensed Real Estate Agents on St John and work with Tropical Properties in Down Town Cruz Bay in front of Castaways Tavern!

                      Why the Owner Chose Great Cruz Bay:
                      We have been vacationing in the Islands since the late 1990's and fell in love with St. John the first time we visited. Contractors by trade owning a home in Paradise was a must. The Island is beautiful, the people are warm and the weather is perfect. 'Welcome to summer for the rest of your life' is the attitude on Island.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Brand new luxurious pool was completed as of November of 2011. Also 24/7 on site concierge, separated for privacy, will allow you to have access to information either in person or by cell phone ranging from island 'must see and must do's', excursions and dinner reservations. We will personally pick you up at the ferry dock and escort you to the Villa. Villa provisioning is also available at the cost of groceries plus 25% with no delivery fee. We will work very hard to make your vacation as relaxing and rewarding as possible to insure that you will choose us the next time you decide to visit the Island.
