Property description

The enchanting magic about Spirit on the Water, sitting 100 feet above the Caribbean, is how seamlessly it blends into the ocean below. The infinity edge pool becomes one with the waves that extend to the jagged edges of the British Virgin Islands in the far distance. Along the way, are small islands, scattered everywhere, adding breathtaking drama to the ocean’s architecture. Music from our outdoor sound system will get you dancing on the deck or on the dance floor in the pool (yes – IN the pool). We’ll be here to welcome you as you melt away the tropical heat under the shade of palm trees growing up through our deck. You will soon to discover that there’s much more to Spirit on the Water than meets the eye!

A private secluded walkway along the oceanfront hillside leads to one of the most beautiful infinity pools anywhere, two stunning bedroom suites and a huge living/dining room area, all with direct access to the pool deck. There is a complete indoor/outdoor kitchen, a barbecue pit, 1000 square feet of coral stone decking with palm trees growing through it, orchids, hummingbirds and tree frogs.

Spirit on the Water offers you peace and tranquility, spectacular uninterrupted views down island to St. John and the British Virgin Islands, unequaled sunrises and star-filled night skys.
The Great Room opens on to the pool deck and is furnished with a large desk and a flat screen TV with Dish Network. Used for additional sleeping or lounging are two hanging twin beds. There are a host of board games and DVDs and a dining area with seating for 6. And all you see is the pool, the ocean and islands scattered in the distance.

The Dream Suite opens onto a large deck with lounge chairs overlooking the pool and the ocean. With it's en suite bathroom and a drop down shower with ocean views, a Duxianna queen bed with soft linens, a flat screen TV with Dish Network, a Sonos stereo system in your room along with a bookshelf full of great reads, you may never want to leave your suite. There is also a twin size 18th century day bed for additional sleeping or lounging in the Dream Suite!

 The Blue Moon Room opens onto a smaller deck adjoining the pool and also looks out over the ocean. Besides the really comfortable queen bed there is a twin size bed all overlooking the pool out onto the ocean. The bathroom for the Blue Room is just around the corner and has a skylight in the shower!

Both bedrooms are air-conditioned and have blackout curtains (neither of which get used very often because of the ocean breeze that comes from the East and the beauty that comes from the landscape - you probably won't want to block any of it out).

Spirit on the Water has a full kitchen just behind the great room that has everything you may need to prepare meals during your stay: refrigerator, freezer, stove and microwave. Unless of course you like to Barbecue, then you’ll just need to step out onto the deck and use the propane grill, of course! You will be happy to know that we have an automatic generator so should the electricity go out (it sometimes happens on the island) we've got you covered. We also have a water filtering system that turns our collected rain water into the most delicious water ever. Its filtered twice and run through a UV sanitation system,so yes, we can all drink the water! There is also wireless Internet throughout house. Oh, and there are several 'Mosquito Magnets' spread around the property so bugs aren't a problem!!!

The glass tiled swimming pool is 32’ x 16’ with an infinity edge and it is a salt water pool that is solar heated most of the year. There is also an 8ft x 5ft. ledge that is only 18 inches deep for little people to play on. There are plenty of pool floats, outdoor speakers and orbit chairs to provide for your maximum enjoyment of one of the greatest pools you will find anywhere!!!!

This is truly a one of a kind place. It’s funky, it’s fun, it’s private and it’s full of spirit!

 The owners or house managers live on site (in a completely separate living area) and are there to help you should you have any questions or need recommendations on anything from beaches to boat trips to restaurants and bars. If you would like to hold a private party here please speak with June about additional event fees. And don't forget to check out our other listing, The Luxury Loveshack On The Water which is just next door... in case you need additional space and would like the option to house more guests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: “What do you mean I can’t have fun all the time?” I wouldn’t be who I am today if I followed all the rules. In fact, it’s because I refused to do what I was told that I’ve had this huge array of experiences. Ok, I wouldn’t say that living out of my car in Hawaii was the best idea I ever had but it sure made me appreciate life and know for sure what I didn’t want! I like fresh air, warm turquoise water, and open spaces for miles. I like young people and old people, little people and big people as long as I can be who I am around them. I like relationships with no yelling, conversations that get me thinking, characters in books that I can imagine being and I like mashed potatoes and gravy no matter what time of day. If I had a choice whether or not to stop on the side of the road to help rescue a dog or keep driving to get to an appointment on time, I’d be late for my appointment. But that is about the only thing that would make me late. I like keeping my word. There has never been a time in my life when I wasn’t interested in what other people were thinking, where they were ‘coming from’, and where they were going as a result of all their experiences. There also has never been a time in my life when I wasn’t looking at who I am, what I want, how I’m going to get it, what it’s going to look like when I do so I can share it with others. So, that’s my life. Except for the part I left out about my 5 husbands, my 2 French kids or my job as a Chief Intuitive Officer all while moving over the years from Texas to California to Hawaii to Connecticut to Paris to New York City and finally in 2004 to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands where I live very happily today with my husband our four dogs, four cats and assortment of lizards, iguana’s and tree frogs. Who could ask for anything more? Did I mention I like swimming in warm turquoise water? Ed is an investment banker, Chinese art dealer, music nutcase, father of 4, grandfather of 5 and partner of 1.

Why the Owner Chose Estate Tabor & Harmony:
We fell in love with the property the minute we saw it. Completely secluded at the end of a 1/4 mile drive in a private estate on the most beautiful stretch of coastline in St. Thomas, Spirit on the Water is also graced by the trade winds 12 months a year. We have transformed the house itself, adding the pool and decking and a second story Master suite to create our perfect home and love sharing it with others. We have incorporated our love of music into a sound system that allows you to play your music in your space, or share the thousands of songs we have available.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We like to have fun and expect you to have a blast. Period. Part of our joy in sharing this unique property is introducing new people to the secrets we have learned about the island over the last 14 years that casual visitors don't normally discover. Maps and directions are available to and from all the popular island destinations and since we are so close to many of them (Red Hook, Magen's Bay (voted one of the top ten beaches in the world by Conde Naste') or our famous Mahogany Run Golf Course, you may want to explore! Directions to the lesser known gems are also there for you. We also make sure that there will always be someone nearby to answer any of your questions about the house, the pool, music system or the animals. They will be cared for by us or a caretaker and can easily be kept out of the main house if that's a concern.... but you might just discover that they are one of the main attractions!
