Great Cruz Bay villa description

Limin Time is located in Great Cruz Bay, which is an upscale waterfront neighborhood consisting of moderate to ultra luxury villas. The view from Limin' Time includes pieces of St.Thomas and sunset skies in the west, and sailboats floating on the harbor in the north. The house is located one lot back from the shoreline and a private right of way leads down to the Caribbean and a small sandy spot from which you can swim, snorkel, kayak or paddleboard in the always tranquil waters of the harbor. Or, you can walk (10 minutes) to the white sand beach at the Westin Resort. It's less than a 2-mile drive to the restaurants, bars and boutiques of Cruz Bay and less than 1 mile to the restaurants, bar, beach, fitness facility and shops at the Westin Resort.
Limin Time is a colorful 2-story, 2-bedroom home where you enter the villa on the upper level, which houses the kitchen/living/dining areas plus the master bedroom and bath. A wall of opening windows overlooks the harbor, and combined with the windows on both ends of the house the great room is well ventilated, bright and cheerful. Two sets of exterior stairs lead down to the guest bedroom and bath on the lower level. The pool and the lovely coral stone sun deck are surrounded by palm gardens and are located a few steps from the lower bedroom.
The master bedroom is on the upper level and has a queen size, 4-poster Tommy Bahama bed set with custom linens, a/c, a tiled bath and shower, and an AM/FM radio alarm with an iPod dock. The master bedroom expands into the living area to create a very large suite. The guest bedroom is on the pool level and has a queen size bed plus a sofa, 2 chairs and an ottoman in the attached suite. This bedroom also has a/c, 40” flat screen TV, plus a tiled bath and shower.
The great room is an excellent example of tropical comfort, style and entertainment. Travertine marble floors, a cathedral ceiling, central air conditioning, and Tommy Bahama furniture and ceiling fans provide the comfort and style. The entertainment is provided by a 42 inch flat screen cable TV/DVD, a stereo/CD, Wifi access, a scanner/copy machine and fax, and soft breezes and harbor views from everywhere in the living area.
Five features make the kitchen a real standout – marble floors, granite countertops, a granite bar that seats 3, mahogany cabinets, and stainless steel appliances. Besides being attractive, this kitchen is quite functional with a 4-burner gas stove with range hood, a built in oven and microwave, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, double sink, coffee maker, toaster, blender and all the cookware and dinnerware for enjoying great meals. This is a villa where the chef is regarded as a VIP, and to insure that he/she doesn’t miss a minute of the game, movie, or favorite show, the chef has his/her own 40 inch flat screen TV mounted on the kitchen wall. A gas barbecue grill is just off the kitchen and the washer/dryer is on the lower level.
The mahogany table in the dining area seats 4 – 6 and the umbrella table on the pool deck seats 4

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About: We’re St John residents who sold our house in the states a few years ago, packed our bags and moved to this storybook island. We love it here, where every day is an adventure, and every night is another pleasant memory. We bought Limin' Time in 2006 and then spent two+ years doing a premium remodel of the original house. Every aspect of this rebuild was done first class because we planned to live in it while we were on St. John, and then rent it when we were off island. We still travel a lot, and we badly wanted a really lovely, romantic island home to return to after our travels. Sometimes you need to be careful what you wish for; we got the lovely island home we wanted, the problem is our guests love it as much as we do, so it rents out more than we planned. This is ok because we’re not sleeping on the beach; we own other properties on St. John, including a romantic and affordable 1-bedroom condo named Happy Hours at Cruz Views. Cruz Views is a boutique 10 unit condo resort that overlooks Cruz Bay (a link to Happy Hours at Cruz Views is below). However Limin' Time is our home and our favorite place anywhere, and good things and good times are meant to be shared, so please enjoy Limin' Time the way we do – one beautiful day at a time.

                          Why Great Cruz Bay:
                          As we stated above, we live on St. John so we try to stay current on the real estate market. One thing every St. John resident agrees on is that Great Cruz Bay is one of St. John’s most convenient, desirable and prettiest neighborhoods, which is also why it’s the home of the four star resort at the Westin. We were looking for a location where our family would have water access so we could snorkel, kayak, and paddle-board, so Limin Time’s private access to the shore made a big difference. We also wanted either to build from the ground up, or buy an older home and totally rebuild it. When we looked at Limin' Time we knew it had the right location and it was a perfect candidate for a top to bottom total rebuild. We stripped it to its bones and completely rebuilt it and added a pool, coral stone sundeck and palm garden, and a tired, plain old home was transformed into a very cute, cozy, and comfortable new two bedroom beauty. This was the fifth St. John home we have built or remodeled so we pretty much knew what we were doing, although this island always throws you a surprise or two. We wanted to create a best in class villa in a great location, something that would totally outshine all the expensive condos in Great Cruz Bay. Every Limin' Time guest so far that has commented has agreed – we nailed it.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          There’s nothing by itself that makes Limin' Time unique, but if you look at the total package – central a/c, pool, sundeck, sun most of the day, harbor and sunset views, travertine marble floors, Tommy Bahama furniture in all the rooms, three flat screen TVs, a handsome mahogany and granite kitchen, private access to swimming, snorkeling and kayaking, cozy and romantic ambiance, quick access to Cruz Bay – then look at the price, and Limin' Time definitely has to rate as a unique, best in class two bedroom villa.
