LOCATION. Sea Wind is located on a private and quiet hillside lot in Chocolate Hole with scenic south - southwest facing views of Hart Bay and Chocolate Hole Harbor. This location is an easy 5-minute drive on paved roads to the restaurants, groceries and nightlife of Cruz Bay, yet this site is private enough to allow discreet clothing optional tanning.??
DESIGN. Sea Wind is a handsome example of traditional Caribbean architecture, with four hip roofed buildings that are connected by decks, covered walkways and patios. This design is similar to the design of the villas that we offer at Gifft Hill, and like the Gifft Hill villas, you enter onto the deck with the ocean views and blue sky stretching before you. All rooms except the loft bedroom are on the pool (lower) level. The air conditioned great house, with a soaring 25 foot beamed cathedral ceiling, contains the great room, an interior dining area and a loft bedroom. The handsome granite and mahogany kitchen is attached to the great house and is also air conditioned. The two a/c adjoining master bedrooms are on the south (left) side of the pool, which is enveloped by lush tropical vegetation that insures its romantic privacy. Temperature controlled rooms, exposed beam ceilings, multiple ceiling fans, screened sliding windows, French doors, terra cotta tiled floors throughout and beautiful landscaping provide an inviting and relaxing tropical atmosphere in this well furnished, very charming home.
LIVING/DINING.The fine-looking, a/c living area has an undeniably pleasing quality. It was completely redone in 2005 - 06 with superior wicker furniture that is accented by Caribbean wall hangings and other accessories. Entertainment includes a cable color TV/DVD/VCR with some movies and a stereo /CD/dual cassette. The deck off the great room is terra cotta tiled and includes retractable awnings that allow you to relax in the sun or the shade.
You may choose from four dining areas. Dine inside at the teak table for 4-6 in the air conditioned dining alcove off the great room, or outside on the deck off the kitchen at a teak table and chair set for 8. There is also a breakfast table for 4 off the master bedrooms and the bar/island in the kitchen is a neat place for lunch or drinks.
KITCHEN. You'll love the large, bright and air conditioned kitchen which was also totally remodeled in 2005 - 06. The resulting granite and mahogany beauty is a chef's delight that is both very functional and quite attractive. It includes a tiled bar/center island with bar chairs, a 4-burner gas stove and oven, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, blender, coffeemaker, double filtered and ozonated water, a telephone and a complete assortment of dinnerware and cookware. A washer/dryer is located outside the kitchen.
BEDROOMS. Both air-conditioned master bedrooms have a cozy and romantic décor. Both are furnished with queen beds, nightstands, lamps, artwork, accessories, and a hanging closet, and both have French doors that open to ocean views. Both master bedrooms have fully tiled baths and showers, linen closets and a locking safe, and there\'s a hammock and a table for 4 on the deck outside the bedrooms. The 3rd bedroom is a nicely furnished a/c loft with a queen bed and a tiled bath and shower that is located on the lower level of the great room.
Based on reviews from hundreds of past guests from the Gifft Hill homes, this 3-bedroom design is one of St. John's favorites. It's popular, in part, because it combines traditional grace and style with modern comforts.
Sea Wind captures all the beauty of the original Gifft Hill design, but because it was built later and then twice remodeled, it's actually an improved version of a proven winner. The expanded and sun filled kitchen is a great improvement, as is the loft bedroom and its improved access. The terra cotta tiled covered decks, childproof railings, and screened garden showers are also nice improvements, while the central a/c in the great house, kitchen and loft bedroom is a real advantage.
This home is its quiet and peaceful setting in Chocolate Hole. The lots above, below and beside Sea Wind are undeveloped (as of 2012), so it has a private and tranquil ambiance, despite being a very convenient 5-minute drive from Cruz Bay. This is also a south facing, sun lover's house, with poolside sun from 9 AM to sunset. The pool and pool deck are the center of this home and are definitely a wonderful place to linger and relax.
A completely new kitchen (appliances, cabinets, everything) was installed in 2005 - 06 and the great room and bathrooms were also redone at the same time. Sea Wind now has much of the look and feel of a new home.
Sea Wind is ideal for honeymooners and lovers of all ages. Plus if you are traveling with friends it is a perfect spot for two couples or for a family with older children. The day and evening ambiance of this intimate villa makes this home a perfect place to relax and unwind
• Thank you...Everything was great! The house was very nice and we loved the location!
• Can't thank you and your staff enough. This was a great house and in the 5 yrs I've been using your company, Seawind was the best. We already miss having our wine on the deck in the evenings. Thank you for everything!
• Thank you very much we had an amazing time at Seawind! We will be back!
• We very much enjoyed our stay on St John and at Seawind. The villa was perfect for our family and we would definitely book again if visiting the island. Your staff were polite and friendly and service was very good not that we needed much because everything was great to begin with.
