Los Chivos house description

With banana, mango, papaya, pinapple, passion and bread fruit, avocado and lemon trees surrounding the house, we decided to name it 'Los Frutales,' Spanish for 'The Fruit Trees.'

The house and pool are perched on a dramatic hillside overlooking an expanse of government protected forests and the world famous Bioluminescent Bays. Beyond is a breathtaking, panoramic view of the Caribbean with St. Croix on the horizon, some 45 miles in the distance.

it is located minutes from the spectacular and unpopulated beaches of the southern shore: Media Luna, Blue Beach, Sun Bay, Red Beach and Navio Beach where 'Lord of the Flies' was filmed in the 1960's.

The two level, three-bedroom house is set on a little over one acre. It features two completely separate living areas: Upstairs has two bedrooms - a master bedroom with a queen, and a guest room with two twins. It has a bath, fully equipped kitchen, living room, dining area and screened-in porch.

The roof has been recently converted to deck for sunning and dining.

The downstairs living room has DirectTV and DVD. The bedroom has a queen. The unit has a full bath.

The outdoor dining area is set in our courtyard garden of bougainvillea and palms.

The house has refreshing cross ventilation from the prevailing trade winds. The bedrooms are air conditioned for cool sleeping on hot nights.

For those of us who need to stay connected to the world, there is broadband Wi-Fi.

Our house manager meets visitors at the airport, helps with car rental arrangements, gives an introduction to the island and can provide deliveries of all sorts of provisions, gourmet foods, spirits and wines.

Other amenities include a Denon-powered, three-zone Bose speaker sound system with iPod dock, 5.8 GHz phone system, linens, towels, beach chairs & umbrella, outdoor gas grill and a laundry room with both washer and dryer.

Activities nearby the house include swimming, sailing, Ecotours, snorkeling, biking, sea kayaking, hiking, nature walks, bird watching, fine and casual dining and excursions to bars reminiscent of Hemingway’s Havana of the 40’s.

No children under 12. The maximum number of guests is 4. And no smoking, please.
