East End villa description

VILLA GIN DE MER is a private villa located on Long Point Peninsula in the 'less traveled' East End of St. John. This ridgeline location offers 270 degree views from 2,000 square feet of decks, patios and lanais. Coral Bay, where you will find restaurants and shopping, is a 15 minute drive thru Hurricane Hole and the National Park.
Villa Gin de Mer is a spacious, well-appointed, private 3-bedroom luxury villa with breathtaking views of the sea, the animals, the boats, and the beaches that make the East End of St. John such a unique and relaxing spot. Enjoy your morning's first cup of coffee on the expansive lower patio, watching sea turtles come up for air in the crystal blue waters of Hansen Bay. Catch sight of dolphins and sometimes even migrating whales as you lounge by the large in-ground pool or soak in the hot tub. A short, 10-minute walk will lead you down to a private, rocky beach where you can snorkel in the lovely and well-populated reefs of Hansen Bay.
Each of the Villa's 3 bedrooms includes a Queen Size bed, seating area, full bath, TV, walk-in closet, ceiling fan, AC and outdoor patio. The Master Suite also has a kitchenette, a covered lanai and an outdoor shower. The great room is outfitted with a large HDTV, shelves full of board games and books, and comfy seating for all. A fully equipped kitchen makes preparing and serving meals easy . . just add food!
There is no better spot on the island to enjoy the tropical sights and sounds unique to St. John than the Villa Gin de Mer. Come to the East End for your next vacation and find a little piece of paradise waiting for you here.
Away from it all...a 10 minute drive to Coral Bay.

              Why East End:
              What attracted us immediatley to Villa Gin de Mer and the East End of St. John was the quiet and the privacy. The proximity to the sea, several wonderfull beaches and great snorkeling made this a perfect location to escape from our busy lives in the states.

              Villa Gin de Mer offers a spacious and comfortable place to relax. With our large multi level decks offering expansive views of the Caribbean and St. John, you can swim in our salt water pool, relax in the hot tub while star gazing, and find any number of secluded shady spots for catching up on your reading or napping. There is a covered outdoor dining area, or enjoy our more formal indoor dining space. The greatroom is very comfortably furnished to accommodate all guests and they enjoy DISH Network's 'Welcome Package' on Satellite HDTV. The kitchen is large, fully equipped and will please any gourmet chef. The 500 sq. ft. master bedroom suite is complete with a small kitchenette and private lanai. This suite has a full indoor bath, and a private outdoor shower. Each of the other two 300 sq. ft. bedrooms have their own full bath, and they share an outdoor seating area overlooking the gardens and Hansen Bay.
