Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: We are Allen and Linda. We and our two teen daughters are residents of St. John and have lived on St. John since 1990. We chose St. John as our ideal home after exploring the Caribbean and Bahamas by sailboat. We manage Cloud Nine and Pebble Cove on East End ourselves and it is very important to us that our guests are pleased with the property. We love the views from the large courtyard deck, perfect for spectacular sunsets, rainbows in the rain, moonlit nights and wonderful stargazing from the hot tub. Every time we walk in the door we are still charmed by the view!
Why the Owner Chose Gifft Hill: We wanted to offer this pleasure to our guests as well. We also love the relative coolness of this particular Gifft Hill location. The sun keeps the pool warm, but gentle breezes keep the house very comfortable year round. The courtyard opens to the view and offers plenty of privacy, a feature most guests highly value. Yes, you can swim, sunbathe or soak in the spa with no bathing suit.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: A short drive to the beaches, close to town yet uniquely private. This is the perfect location from which to explore St. John. We love sitting on the deck under the stars or under the shade of the gazebo and watching the play of light and wind on the waters below. The sunsets and lights of St. Thomas are magical!
