Property description

True to its name, Grandview offers from it's New Pool and Decks fabulous water views looking west toward the picture perfect Great Cruz Bay, the neighboring islands of St. James and St.
Thomas and the glistening, blue waters of the Caribbean. Grandview is a casually inviting St. John vacation home that is constructed of exotic island cyprus hardwoods along with native stone and oozes with charm! It is located in a quiet but convenient neighborhood and has steps from the back yard to Great Cruz Bay Road, which allows quick access by public road to the Westin Resort beach as well as a running route named as one of most desirable and scenic by Runner's Magazine. There is vehicle traffic on the road to be aware of that moves in the opposite direction from the States!

The home offers 3 A/C bedrooms plus a queen sleeping loft in addition to the 3rd bedroom, and 3 full baths, one being a newly built Euro Bath w/shower that is en suite to the newly built 3rd bedroom. Two showers are open air but fully enclosed and private. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a new ice machine, juicer, gas stove and a gas grill on the deck. There is also 2 seating areas facing the ocean with WiFI Internet, Cable TV, DVD and a Bose i-Pod player. The great room has high ceilings and ceiling fans with new track lighting and feels wonderfully open and airy! There are slider doors on the front and back of the house to maximize usage of the gentle trade wind breezes and enjoy the wonderful feel of being so close to Great Cruz Bay from the Bay side!. There is also a new outdoor laundry allowing one not to miss a moment of the awesome views even while performing the daily, mundane chore of doing laundry!

A 4 ft. deck with new stainless steel wire guard railing wraps around 3 sides of the house allowing for optimal ocean viewing while sitting on the deck visiting or relaxing! There is also a NEW 18'x20' private wood deck leading to the New Saltwater Pool! Beside the pool is an Italian marble slab dining table and 8 new comfy dining chairs for comfortable eating and conversation (indoor dining set as well). there is a new covered roof over the deck beside the pool to offer shaded area over the dining and conversation space, There is also a sunning deck at the end of the pool to allow you to enjoy ocean views toward St. thomas ! .A NEW 8'x14' coral stone tile deck off the new bedroom allows for separate privacy, morning coffee, a glass of nightly wine and enjoying the gentle trade winds! Grandview offers abundant privacy and a wonderful opportunity to unwind. The 2 king bedrooms offer amazing ocean views and fabulous sunsets with the comfort of Sleep Number Beds further offering the chance for a restful vacation!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: Our family of 6 from Winston-Salem, NC first visited St. John in March 2005 and fell in love with God's creation of the beautiful Caribbean Sea, wonderful warm weather, and the fact that most of the island is preserved as national forest. We so enjoy the sounds of the tree lizards and iguanas at night and the ability to snorkel, scuba dive, paddle board, or rent a boat during the day at the beach just down from the house. We have experienced owning a 2nd home at Bald Head Island, NC since 1994 and enjoy island life so much but sought a warmer winter climate. We began looking for a St John property in 2012 that could accommodate our family during times we could escape to the island with the goal of taking our experience of building and renovating at Bald Head Island to an additional adventure on St. John. We are extremely blessed to have such an opportunity and are excited to offer what we feel is a uniquely located, cozy home to others who may appreciate it as much as our family!

Why Chocolate Hole:
The location is very convenient to town where the dining is world class and the shopping is fun! We also love the friendly and quiet feel of the neighborhood, yet the closeness to the Westin where we can go pay to use the fitness facility and spa, or just go enjoy the restaurant, beach, and other offered activities thru the resort such as day snorkel trips to other nearby islands or even daily boat rental.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Pool that Overlooks Bay, Location, Sunset View, Close Drive to Town, Close Drive to North Shore Beaches, Closeness to Westin Resort and a Convenient Circle Drive to Park Your Car at the House! We love sitting on the wrap around porch and new pool deck in the evening watching the awesome sunsets and ensuing twilight as it approaches! Eventually you are gazing at the stars and the distant lights of St. Thomas! You can enjoy lounging in the pool as you enjoy the close of the day!
