Rendezvous Bay villa description

The original owners of Monte Bay were one of the first couples to buy a lot in this exclusive neighborhood so they chose one of the best lots, one with a picturesque waterfront setting and excellent privacy. Monte Bay is tucked into a really sweet location with the main house built just above the turquoise and azure waters of Monte Bay, and the guesthouse built just behind the main house. Both houses face south–southwest and are a sun lover’s dream with soft breezes and warm sunshine all day long. Monte is hidden from view from the private road that accesses Klein Bay, and there are no traffic noises or intrusions. A short walk takes you to a pebble beach for swimming and snorkeling and a 10-minute swim/snorkel brings you to the white sand beach at Ditliff Point. Both Ditliff Beach and Klein Bay are protected by Ditliff Peninsula, so the calm, crystal clear waters are sheltered from heavy surf and strong winds which makes this inviting for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. Monte Bay is a 10-15 minute drive from the groceries, restaurants and shops of Cruz Bay.

Monte Bay is a handsome 2-½ level, custom home that was designed to be a luxurious indoor/outdoor tropical villa. To enter Monte you descend through a hillside garden and enter the great room with the kitchen on your right, the formal dining room on your left and the interior living room just 3 steps below the kitchen/dining areas. The two upper-level guest bedrooms and a convenient half bath are also located just below the kitchen. The spacious gallery (covered porch) contains a second living and dining area which is cooled by tropical breezes. The gallery is a half level below the interior living/dining area. From the gallery, tiled stairs on the left lead to the lower level with the master bedroom and the lower left guest bedroom, plus a 30' ceramic tiled pool surrounded by a tiled deck. The right set of stairs from the gallery leads to the lower right guest bedroom and a secluded hot tub nestled into a romantic setting.

The gallery, pool and sun deck are the outdoor part of the home. The gallery serves as a lovely outdoor living and dining room. When you relax here the sound of gentle surf and views of turquoise seas surround you. The indoor parts of the house are the kitchen and all the bedrooms (2 inside access, 3 outside access) plus the enclosed living and dining areas. Banana, papaya, palm and other abundant vegetation surrounds the house and create a superb clothing optional privacy.

The bedrooms are located on two levels. On the upper level two guest bedrooms (queen beds) are located on opposite sides of the great room to insure maximum privacy. Both of these bedrooms have air conditioning, 4-poster mahogany beds, tiled floors, vaulted ceilings and screened sliding glass doors that open to balconies with picturesque views. They also have tiled baths and private outdoor stone garden showers that are surrounded by luxuriant tropical foliage. The spacious, air-conditioned master bedroom (king bed) is located on the lower level. It features lovely views of the Caribbean through 20' screened sliding glass doors, and also includes a large bath/dressing room that is entered through beautiful stone arches. The fourth a/c bedroom (king bed) and bath adjoins the pool deck on the lower left, while the fifth bedroom (twin beds) is on the lower right side of the villa near the hot tub.

The kitchen has been completely remodeled and looks gorgeous with cherry cabinets accented by granite countertops and top name stainless steel appliances. It includes a Decor 4-burner gas cook top stove, Decor standard and convection ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, a microwave oven and dishwasher and a granite countertop bar with bar stools. The kitchen is amply supplied with cooking supplies, utensils and dinnerware. A laundry room with a washer and dryer is located off the great room and a separate stone patio off the deck contains a BBQ grill.

The interior dining room is centered around an antique mahogany dining set that seats 8, while casual lunches may be served on the pool deck or in the gallery.
The stylish, interior great room is furnished with top of the line wicker furniture, and includes a cable TV/DVD and a stereo with CD and cassette. The gallery is the outstanding design feature of Monte Bay. It is surrounded on 3 sides by Mediterranean style, 12 foot, open arched windows that effectively capture all the beauty of the Caribbean. The gallery is tastefully furnished in cushioned wicker furniture and is an absolutely splendid place to read, relax, paint or unwind.

The Guest House at Monte Bay is an attractive villa built of stone and concrete and is located above and behind the main house. Like the main house, the Guesthouse enjoys a very private, quiet and romantic location. A spiral staircase leads from the ground level to the upper level, which contains the kitchen/living and dining areas, as well as the master bedroom and master bath. An exterior covered deck runs the full length of the upper level of the Guesthouse, and from the deck there are scenic views of Rendezvous Bay and the Caribbean. You also have private access to the path that leads to snorkeling and swimming.
The Guesthouse has stonewalls, beamed cathedral ceilings, tiled floors throughout, and tropical furnishings and artwork which creates a classy, comfy and inviting living environment. The a/c master bedroom (queen bed) has stonewalls and a delightfully romantic essence with screened French doors that open to water views. A tile and stone master bath with lots of closet space and a stone shower is off the master bedroom. A second bedroom (queen) and private bath is located on the ground level. The kitchen is modern and completely equipped, with tiled countertops, a 4-burner gas stove and oven, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster oven and a small table for two. The living room includes a cable TV/DVD and a stereo/cassette/CD. Two sets of French doors open from the living area to the decks and views of the water.

Klein Bay is a small neighborhood of exclusive residential villas located on the southern Caribbean coast of St. John. A short walk takes you to a pebble beach for swimming and snorkeling and a 10-minute swim/snorkel brings you to the white sand beach at Ditliff Point. Both Ditliff Beach and Klein Bay are protected by Ditliff Peninsula, so the calm, crystal clear waters are sheltered from heavy surf and strong winds which makes this inviting for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. Monte Bay is a 10-15 minute drive from the groceries, restaurants and shops of Cruz Bay.

Why Rendezvous Bay:
Monte Bay is the second home we have owned on St John, with our first home being located on the water at Hart Bay. Even though it was a beautiful home, we were looking for a more tranquil, private and intimate setting. Like my mother before me, I am an artist and I was also searching for a location where the light, colors and quiet beauty of the setting would inspire me and contribute to my paintings. Once I saw this house and the waters around it, I knew this was a unique place where creativity could flourish. Like the renowned coast of southern France, the textures and colors of earth, sky and water at Monte are especially beautiful and inspirational. But it’s more than the colors, it’s also the peaceful, quiet, yet stimulating nature of the gallery with its warm breezes, sounds of gently breaking surf, sweet smells of the Caribbean Sea and vivid scenes of sea and sky. I have been both blessed and inspired by my surroundings, and this is where I’ve painted some of my best works. it’s a artists heaven, and I love it. My husband also loves this house and its location, but for not all the same reasons. He loves the very private pool and hot tub, the beautiful tropical landscaping that surrounds the house, and the choice of living in a/c comfort or outside in the warmth of the Caribbean. We both love that we’re 10-minutes from great restaurants and good times in Cruz Bay, yet we return to a very private, quiet and seemingly removed waterfront setting. Monte Bay has been exactly what we were looking for, and although the setting was what drew us here, the house was what closed the deal. It’s a beautiful combination.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
There are four features that we feel give this villa a unique quality. The first is the vivid colors of the water and sky. The colors of the bay are constantly changing, from shades of turquoise to indigo to sapphire blues, but always beautiful to behold. It’s really a color performance that only nature could put on, and she does, every day. Second, Monte Bay’s two distinct living/dining areas give you a choice of two styles of living; indoors in air-conditioned comfort with a big screen TV, or outside with soft tropical breezes and the music of gentle surf lapping the shore below you. The outdoor gallery (the large covered porch) almost overhangs the water, and it provides a front row seat in the Theater of Nature and Fabulous Color that performs every day. You’re so close to the water it seems like you’re cantilevered out over the water. It’s really quite soothing and relaxing, and especially lovely. Third, Monte Bay is set back from the infrequently traveled Klein Bay access road, there is no neighboring villa on the right and the villa on the left is completely screened from view. This creates an especially serene and private atmosphere where you feel very much away from it all, and where full body tans are the order of the day. The four-person hot tub is also located in an exceptionally private and romantic garden setting. I guarantee that you’ll love this favorite evening hangout. Lastly, the interior décor of Monte reflects the artistic heritage of my family. Although I sell most of my works, I like to keep some of the family’s favorites around me, and they adorn the walls of Monte Bay. I feel that lots of art on the walls gives this home a warm, interesting and attractive décor. I hope you like it as much as my family does.
