Reef Bay villa description

Our St. John home enjoys a spectacular location on the very edge of the National Park in Reef Bay, on the south shore of St. John. The south shore road ends about a quarter mile beyond us, and the house is located well away from the road. This creates an exceptionally peaceful, pristine and beautiful setting with no noise except the sound of surf breaking on the beach below you. The view is one of the island’s most unspoiled views of the National Park and the undeveloped southern coast of St John. The magnificent views include miles of turquoise and blue ocean, mountains covered with virgin subtropical rain forests, and the 'Big Sur' like shoreline of the National Park. The white sands of Reef Bay Beach lie directly below you and are accessible via a short hike. Reef Bay is one of St. John's most virgin National Park beaches where sea turtles still lay their eggs and snorkeling, swimming and beach walks are private and adventuresome. Although there’s a strong sense of being away from it all, it’s only a four mile drive into Cruz Bay.

Virgin Seabreeze is a Caribbean estate with a classic architectural heritage blended with a modern and comfortable interior. The estate consists of a large main house plus a 2-bedroom guesthouse. The living, dining and kitchen areas, plus the master bedroom, the pool bedroom, and the loft bedroom are located in the main house. The guesthouse is just off the main house and contains upper and lower bedrooms that share a recently remodeled bath. Outside the houses are terraced gardens, and an antique brick patio that contains a barbeque pit and a lovely outdoor dining area. The hot tub sits in an exceptionally private and romantic spot on the left side of the house, while the spacious pool and sundeck are on the lower level.
In the main house the large great room contains the living, dining and kitchen areas. On the ocean side screened sliding glass doors open to lovely views and a seaside deck, while glass doors on the garden side open to views of the courtyard and terraced gardens. The living room has custom built designer furniture that seats eight, and includes a 40” Sony flat screen cable TV/DVD, high speed internet and an AM/FM/CD stereo. You can dine inside at a mahogany table that seats 8, or outside at a 10-foot marble table that seats 8-10 under the gazebo on the patio. On the pool deck there are two tables that each seat four persons.
The recently remodeled kitchen has hardwood cabinets accented by granite countertops, tiled walls and a bow window that gives the chef a beautiful view of Reef Bay. Appliances include a 4-burner gas stove/oven, a refrigerator/freezer with icemaker, a dishwasher, 2 microwaves, a blender and coffee maker. There are hand painted decorative pieces and multiple sets of dinnerware. A Jennaire gas grill is on the brick patio, and a washer/dryer and freezer are located in an alcove off the great house.
The four bedrooms all have air conditioning, flat screen 26” TVs, water views and the subdued sounds of surf gently breaking on the beach below you. In the guesthouse, the upper and lower bedrooms each have a choice of a king bed or two twins, TV/DVD and an iPod clock radio. These two bedrooms share a tiled bath and shower that was completely remodeled in 2010. In the main house, the master bedroom has a 4-poster king bed, a TV/DVD plus an iPod, and beautiful views through sliding glass doors that open to a seaside deck. A separate tiled master bath and a shower serves the master bedroom. The fourth bedroom is off the pool deck (king bed or 2 twins) and has a tiled bath and shower (remodeled in 2010), TV plus AM/FM/CD player. A fifth bedroom, of sorts, is the loft with a ships ladder access off the great room. It contains an antique sleigh bed, desk, table, and small deck.

In sum, St John consistently wins green awards because it is one of the least developed, best preserved and most unspoiled and natural islands in the Caribbean, thanks largely to the presence of the National Park. In concert with this theme, Virgin Seabreeze is located in one of the least developed, most unspoiled and tranquil areas of St. John. Because the view looks into the National Park it has changed very little in the years Virgin Seabreeze has been renting. If you value peace and quiet and unspoiled vistas of green mountains and blue skies and seas, this location will greatly please you. As for the villa it’s a classic beauty that has been lovingly maintained and improved since it was built. It’s a spacious, comfortable and perfect house for this exceptional location.

                  Reef Bay is on the edge of the National Park on the south coast of St John. the road from Cruz Bay dead ends at Reef Bay and the lack of through traffic keeps this area free from sight seeing tourists and day trippers and insures the tranquility and peacefulness of the area.

                  The Reef Bay view is one of the island’s most unspoiled views of the National Park and the undeveloped southern coast of St John. The magnificent views include miles of turquoise and blue ocean, mountains covered with virgin subtropical rain forests, and the 'Big Sur' like shoreline of the National Park. The white sands of Reef Bay Beach lie directly below you and are accessible via a short hike. Reef Bay is one of St. John's most virgin National Park beaches where sea turtles still lay their eggs and snorkeling, swimming and beach walks are private and adventuresome.

                   

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 1988

                  Why Reef Bay:
                  When we first visited St. John it was love at first sight and we immediately began to dream about building a vacation home somewhere on the island. At that time (mid 1980s) we could have bought land anywhere – North Shore, Cruz Bay, Coral Bay, Great Cruz Bay – there were many choices. So we searched, and searched, and one day a local in the know advised us to visit Reef Bay and off we went. When we drove up the ridgeline and first saw Reef Bay we were absolutely awestruck by its rugged and untouched natural beauty, and its one of a kind gorgeous views of the National Park and the Caribbean. Long story short, we became one of the first couples to build in this beautiful wilderness on the edge of the Park. That was many years ago but we still return every year, and although today there are more homes in Reef Bay, it still offers the same bold beauty, soft tranquility, and sense of excitement and escape that we fell in love with so many years ago. The wonderfully unspoiled views of the Caribbean haven’t changed, and the lush, unblemished mountains and hillsides seem to get greener and denser every year. It’s as lovely today as the first time we banged our way out here in an old jeep on a bumpy dirt road. Today we ride in an air-conditioned SUV on a paved road, but the sense of escape, excitement and joy of being surrounded by unspoiled tropical beauty is still the same. We were captivated by Reef’s striking beauty when we first saw it, and we’re still awestruck every time we return. You will be too.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  Virgin Seabreeze ia a unique blend of different themes. First, Seabreeze is traditional and also contemporary. The house is a beautiful example of the classic Danish architecture that has become a favorite on St John, with white masonry buildings, red tiled hip roofs, wooden shutter doors, antique brick patios and courtyards, gorgeous hand cut stonework, a spacious layout and terraced tropical gardens. Yet the interior of Seabreeze is modern, comfortable, and stylish with custom rattan furniture, precious antique accessories, mahogany, granite and glass baths, a/c in all bedrooms, and frequent upgrades and remodeling of the kitchen, baths and living room. Second, this home has a decidedly romantic essence that derives from its hideaway location, and is enhanced by an inviting hot tub in a secluded setting, a sunny pool surrounded by a large deck, lovely bedroom décor and furnishings, and patios and decks that offer enough privacy for full body tans. Third, this home has an adventuresome quality. The National Park beach below you is little known, little used and usually deserted. Depending on the surf, the swimming and snorkeling can be inviting, or you can go for a long walk on a deserted beach. A one mile hike along the beach brings you to a second beach at the head of Reef Bay, while National Park trails take you on more challenging hikes through the Park to Lameshur Bay, Bordeaux Mountain or Rams Head.
