Property description

YOU ARE DIRECTLY ON THE OCEAN! Few villas can say that and none of the others are as new.

Upon arrival, my Villa Manager, Colleen who has been with me for years will meet you at the dock, help you with your car and then wisk you to my villa where a fine
meal awaits you complete with wine!

This is the biggest, baddest, newest two bedroom villa on St. John! The ultimate in luxury, With two king size equal sized masters facing an unobstructed ocean view and bedding to die for lends itself ideal for two couples to enjoy. Perfect for romance, or just to get away from daily life.

Situated 100' above the crashing surf on the ocean's edge. Infinity pool has seating area in the pool accommodating four as you enjoy afternoon libations or that evening swim while looking out toward the twinkling lights of St. Thomas and amazing winter sunsets.

Granite counters, stainless Whirlpool appliances, including 26 bottle wine refrig! Top of the line furnishings throughout. The dining choices, poolside, inside or out under the stars at your table for six watching the sun slip down in the west. You are less than five minutes away from Cruz Bay and it's restaurants and entertainment. This villa is the final word in luxury, convenience and amenities.

Bordo Mare enjoys embracing returning guests at nearly 40% as they know and expect to be taken care of by our excellent staff who has continually looked after the same villa since completely.

It is recommended you book six to nine months in advance due to our exceptionally high occupancy of 98%. Well leave "The Lite On!"

Car: Necessary

Most mornings you will find walkers and joggers taking the approximate one mile circuit past out site from you. During the later part of March the International Rolex Regatta makes their turns nearly in front of the villa. You can hear the Captains as they shout orders.

Occasionally you will see turtles and whales just off the cliff as they swim by.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: This is my third build. The last finished in 2009 - Sopra Mare at VRBO #251854 has proven so popular that I undertook another on the same 1.4 acre lot finished January 2014. It is slighly larger than the last with more amenities. Author of two books - 'Keep Left,' a 2008 comedy about the people I met while building my first villa Tesori. Also 'Flat Busted,' a 2014 fictional novel of high adventure set in the Caribbean. I currently reside in Aspen, Colorado and St. John with my significant other she's taller, smarter, younger beautiful nurse. Hey, at my age - you either get a nurse or a purse. I'm fortunate enough to get a nurse "with a purse!"

Why the Owner Chose Chocolate Hole:
Well one night in 2000 I went to a charity event in Vail, Colorado. I drank way to much wine and bought two TV's, a $500 savings bond, a shotgun, pink Harley Davis Motorcycle and finally a trip to the Virgin Island! Sold the Harley to a long legged movie producer's wife before morning! Thank God! Fell in love with this lot and basically did nothing with it until 2008 when I started Sopra Mare.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Views are 'killer' from the living, dining, massive decks and equal sized master bedrooms all face the ocean. Other places might have ocean views, but at Bordo Mare you are one with the sea. I have chosen 'Nana' type doors for these locations. Basically five panels that move totally to the right and provide an unobstructed panarama ocean view from every room. The pool deck is large, overlooking the infinity edge pool where there is additional seating around the in pool. In the morning grab your coffee and take the one mile circuit for a gentle walk of the quiet neighborhood while you watch iguanas lazily move out of your path. At night, you'll see the lights of St. Thomas and cruise ships moving slowly from right to left bound for their next island port. In the distance most nights, car lights on St. Croix are twinkling some 30 miles away. The low throated sound of tree frogs and gentle crash of surf below will lull you to sleep in your incredible duel master suites. You'll think you're in heaven rather than 'Bordo Mare' Edge of the Sea!
