Peter Bay villa description

Mermaid Falls is located at an elevation of about 550 feet in upper Peter Bay, where it is surrounded by the national park. This is a natural and beautiful setting where the views are just gorgeous. The view stretches for more than 180 degrees, from sunsets over St. Thomas in the west, past Jost Van Dyke in the north, to Tortola in the east. Below you are the white sands and turquoise waters of Peter Bay and Cinnamon Bay, while all around you is a forest of green. This is considered to be one of the finest, most highly prized locations on St. John and the entire Caribbean.
Mermaid Falls has deeded access to the beach at Peter Bay, a white sand beach with tranquil waters and good swimming and snorkeling. If you prefer, it's less than a 5-minute drive to the world class national park beaches at Trunk or Cinnamon bays. It's a 5-10 minute, beautiful drive to the celebrated restaurants at the four star resort at Caneel Bay, and an additional 5 minutes into the excellent restaurants and shops in the charming town of Cruz Bay.

The villa has a beautiful design that incorporates many elegant features like graceful arched passageways supported by doric columns, spacious coral stone decks, oversized mahogany french doors, ballistered railings, beamed cathedral ceilings, and many private decks and sitting areas.
Mermaid Falls consists of a great house and a guesthouse, both of which are connected by a coral stone deck and a covered patio and wet bar. The great house contains the kitchen, living and dining areas on the main (pool) level, while a mahogany staircase leads up to the master bedroom/bath and a guest bedroom/bath on the upper level. Exterior stairs lead down to the lower level bedroom/bath in the main house. The guesthouse is a 2 1/2-story building with a bedroom/bath on the lower level and a second bedroom/bath on the main level. Behind the waterfall, stairs lead up to the romantic hillside hot tub for 4 - 6 people.
Bedrooms. The master bedroom is the largest bedroom and includes a 4-poster king bed, a writing desk, upholstered reading chairs, a satellite tv and dvd and a whirlpool tub in the master bath. Down the hall from the master is a guest bedroom with a queen bed, satellite tv and dvd and tasteful furnishings. On the lower level of the main house there is a private bedroom with 3 twin beds, a flat screen tv and dvd and comfortable seating area for four. In the guesthouse, the lower bedroom has a queen sleigh bed while the upper bedroom has a queen 4-poster bed.
All five bedrooms have ocean views, tiled baths and showers, private tiled decks or balconies, and individually controlled air conditioning. The living room is defined by oversized french mahogany doors and is furnished with sink-into-it furniture, and includes a flat screen satellite tv/dvd and a stereo/cd player and satellite radio.

The elegant kitchen adjoins the living room and has coral stone counter tops, mahogany cabinets and all stainless steel appliances, including a gas stove and oven with ventilation hood, a microwave oven, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, toaster, coffee maker and a complete collection of cookware and dinnerware. There is a washer/dryer off the kitchen as well as a half bath.
The formal dining room seats 8 but there are also dining tables on the sun deck and in the alcove by the gas barbeque grill.

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About: We’re a multi generational family from Massachusetts, and Mermaid Falls is the island home where we all get together and enjoy the unique pleasures of this wonderful island that we have come to love so much. There is something so uniquely special about family gatherings in this beautiful tropical setting. It may be that when you’re surrounded by peaceful and serene natural beauty the peacefulness envelops you and becomes a part of you. Or maybe it's because we're all on vacation, together, in such a wondrous setting. Whatever the reason, we tremendously enjoy the time we spend together here. Our memories of St. John are an everlasting treasure for all of us, as they will be for you and your family or friends.

                  Why Peter Bay:
                  Mermaid Falls was built in 2003 by the original developers of Peter Bay. This was the first home built in upper Peter Bay, and the developers selected the finest lot to build on because they wanted to build a showcase home that would (and did) establish upper Peter Bay as a neighborhood of distinguished homes. The favorite feature that we love that really distinguishes Mermaid Falls from other Peter Bay homes are the gorgeous views. Looking west, throughout the day the waters of Hawkesnest Bay turn vivid, almost neon shades of turquoise and blue, while in the late afternoon you're blessed by the colors of the sun setting behind St. Thomas. The views of Cinnamon Bay and Tortola in the east are also strikingly beautiful, while the view of Jost Van Dyke in the north is also gorgeous. This is a family that has traveled a lot, but we’ve never seen anything quite as beautiful, peaceful and naturally composed as the views that lie before us at Mermaid Falls. It brings us back, year after year, and being together with your family or special friends in Mermaid Falls - it's incredible.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  We’re often asked where the name Mermaid Falls originated. A seemingly natural waterfall flows into the pool from a rocky outcropping and a mermaid overlooks this scene, thus the name Mermaid Falls. One of the unique things we love about this house is that it’s well designed for a large family like ours. The many private decks, patios and bedrooms combine so well with the common areas that we can be together and yet everyone can have their own space, which is great when you’ve got 6 or more people under the same roof. I was also taken with the overall ambiance of this villa, it’s both stately and elegant yet it’s not pretentious or overdone; everyone feels comfortable here. The hot tub is in a beautiful and private spot and everyone seems to really enjoy it, as well as the pool. The house stays so cool and comfortable that we rarely use the central a/c, but we know some guests seem to really appreciate it. The last thing that sets Mermaid apart that we love are the French doors and windows. They’re varnished mahogany and they require a lot of maintenance and affection, but they look so beautiful and they give the house an air of classic tropical elegance that they’re worth the effort. There’s lots more that’s unique about Mermaid but we’ll leave that for our guests to discover.
