Property description

Beach Music is a spacious (4500 sq. ft.) and very comfortable two level home. Easy driveway access and parking on the upper level and entry into the lanai - a roofed, screened-in veranda. The lanai leads into the 750 sq/ft great room which contains the living, dining and kitchen areas. The two upper level bedrooms are on either side of the great room and both open to water views and decks. A dining deck connects to the great room, and the pool and sundeck are located in a well landscaped setting on the left side of the villa. Exterior stairs lead down to the two lower level bedrooms, the billiards room and more deck areas.

The house itself is quite attractive with a traditional Caribbean design featuring cathedral ceilings with exposed beams, walls of beautiful native stonework, terra cotta tiled floors throughout, multiple ceiling fans, over-sized sliding glass and oiled French mahogany doors, furnishings and accessories of mahogany, bamboo and rattan, and a deck off every bedroom.

Car: Recommended

Located in Chocolate Hole, Beach Music is in one of the most desired locations on St. John. Just a five minute drive into Cruz Bay, you are close to restaurants, bars and shopping. The island provides wonderful hikes and some of the best beaches in the world - all within a relatively short drive. Spend the day snorkeling at Trunk Bay or time your visit to catch a nighttime full moon hike. For fitness buffs, our house is located in a very walkable neighborhood off of the main road. Scenic views of the ocean along the way! The Westin workout facility is a short drive or leisurely walk away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are from Columbus, Ohio and spend our winters on beautiful St. John. There is no place like it in the world. You will fall in love with the beauty of the land and the friendliness and laid-back nature of the people. Let us know if you need any recommendations or tips for your visit - we are happy to help!

Why the Owner Chose Chocolate Hole:
While the island (and surrounding islands!) is abundant with fantastic activities, often times when friends or family come to visit us here, we joke that the best spot on the island is our home. St. John boasts world class restaurants and beaches, but we love to cook in the open kitchen - which looks out over the ocean and is truly made for gathering friends around. While we are located so close to Cruz Bay, and Beach Bar is always fun, hanging out on the deck or downstairs with some music and beers while playing pool can be the perfect spot to spend your evenings. The property is high enough to have a wonderful breeze that keeps bugs away, yet is a short path away from the ocean. We looked and looked for a house like this and are so glad we waited for the right one. We hope you have as many good times in it as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
While looking at different homes on the island, we began to notice one thing immediately before we even stepped foot in the house - the driveway! Many homes on St. John have incredibly steep driveways - or even dirt roads to get there. Besides being close to the Westin and Cruz Bay, we immediately rejoiced at the relatively easy incline of the driveway. Besides that, we love the pool, and the covered gazebo area of the deck that we just added. The two top bedrooms are beautiful with fantastic views. The two bottom bedrooms both offer a great deal of privacy - perfect for groups of families or couples.
