Peter Bay villa description

The Taylor House is located in a beautiful setting in lower Peter Bay, which is one of St. John's finest neighborhoods. Guests have access to Peter Bay Beach, a private beach located just below the house and between the beaches at Trunk and Cinnamon Bays. Even by St. John’s very high standards, the views from Taylor House are quite beautiful as they sweep from the northeast to the west and include the lush hills of St. John’s north shore, Cinnamon and Maho Bays, Whistling Cay, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, and other islands in the British and US Virgin Islands. It's a picturesque 5-10 minute drive to the tropical restaurants and bars at the 5-star Caneel Bay Resort, and an additional 5 minutes into the delightful town of Cruz Bay.

The Taylor House was completed in 2010, but it was not made available for rent until the summer of 2014. The house has also had very light owner use, and in combination with the owner’s commitment to superior maintenance, you’ll swear you’re in a new home.
This is St. John’s most advanced solar home, designed to operate entirely on solar power, but backed up by conventional electric power. Despite its solar heritage, this exclusive luxury villa doesn’t sacrifice any comfort, beauty or indulgence in return for its green status.

Both entrances to lower Peter Bay are gated, but the 150’ private drive with its own gated entrance gives this home a second level of privacy and security. If you value freedom from uninvited guests, this home will answer.

This villa is an appealing 2-story design, with 4200 sq/ft of interior living space, and 3800 sq/ft of lanai, pool deck, patios and balconies. The living and dining rooms, kitchen, pool, sundecks, lanai and exterior dining patio are on the lower level, and the four bedrooms and baths are on the second level, which is accessed by internal stairs. In addition to the 4 bedroom baths, there is a full bath off the pool deck and another half bath off the living room. There is a guest cottage available for an additional fee. The guest cottage comes with a full kitchen, living room, washer/dryer and full bath. It has high speed internet, satellite TV and sleeps four.

The living room of the Taylor House is the architectural showpiece of this villa. It is quite spacious - more than 50 feet long – and both elegant and casual. This room is rich with oversized windows and doors, a high ceiling with exposed beams, tiled floors, and comfortable furniture with seating for 9-10. Four hanging chandeliers, recessed ceiling lights, wall sconces and table lamps beautifully light the room, and numerous dimmer switches allow you to create a variety of enchanting nighttime ambiances. There is a 54” TV with a Dish satellite with premium channels, DVD, a multi speaker Bose sound system and high speed internet. There is also a desk and workstation in a small alcove in the living room.
The lovely dining room is located in a separate room just off the living room. It is bordered on three sides by glass doors and windows that provide charming views, lots of light and soft Caribbean breezes. The mahogany dining table seats 8 – 10 persons, while off the kitchen there is a garden patio with a teak table that also seats 8-10. The patio dining area includes a stainless steel barbecue.
Glass doors off the dining room open to the lanai, a 250 sq/ft outdoor covered living area with coral stone tile, very comfortable cushioned furniture, and an incredibly relaxing large hammock. A full bath adjoins the lanai for use when you’re enjoying the pool, the lanai, or the dining patio.
The kitchen is also a separate room located off the living room, and an exterior door leads outside to the barbeque and exterior dining patio.The kitchen’s white cabinets, designer lighting, and 25’ cathedral ceiling and oversized skylight create a charming area that is bright and cheerful.The appliances are all made by Bosh and include a 5-burner gas stove, standard and convection ovens, side-by-side refrigerator and freezer, dishwasher, and an array of small appliances. The abundant cabinets are crammed full with all types of glassware, dinnerware and cookware and there is a sizable pantry off the kitchen.
The bedroom arrangement is quite family friendly with all the bedrooms located off a common hall on the upper level, which is accessed by interior stairs. All the bedrooms have a/c and gorgeous views, with glass doors that open to private balconies. The 3 guest bedrooms are similar in size while the master bedroom is a larger and more luxurious bedroom on the east end of the villa All bedrooms have private baths and showers. In an alcove off the hall and overlooking the kitchen there is a small sitting area with a couch and a 40” TV/DVD.

Almost every rental home in Peter Bay is maintained by persons or companies that maintain multiple homes. This villa has an excellent maintenance and landscaping man who lavishes attention exclusively on this home, and provides it with a superior level of tender loving care. We think that you’ll see the difference.

This home was designed for the family that owns it and it’s bedroom layout, pool placement, lanai, games, entertainment, and other features make this an ideal family home. But you don’t have to have children to love this villa, for it’s also an ideal vacation home for couples, and an ever so romantic villa for an anniversary, special occasion or even a deluxe honeymoon.

                          About: We're a family who travels a lot and finds the world to be a very fascinating and exciting place to explore. But of all the places we've been, there's nothing quite like the intriguing island of St. John. That's the long and the short of it, and that's why we built a nest for our family here - there's no place like in the world.

                          Why Peter Bay:
                          There's a lot of reasons that Trip Advisor recently picked St. John as their number two preferred island destination in the entire world, and we agree with all of them. St. John and Peter Bay are really unique locations, and we built a very special home here so our family can come back year after year to our own home on this magic island.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          The Taylor House was designed to meet the needs of our family, and it does this superbly. We wanted a lot of outdoor living space, distinct dining, kitchen and living areas, all the bedrooms on the same floor, and an overall balance of comfort and elegance, and this house delivers on every level. Although the house was designed to operate entirely on solar power, it is backed up by conventional electric. With its central a/c, gourmet kitchen, entertainment systems and designer lighting, this home also demonstrates that you don't have to sacrifice any luxury, security or style in return for a renewable energy source. We also wanted to insure our privacy, so we designed a long driveway with a gate at the entrance. Now no one knocks on our door unless they're invited and buzzed in. Once we put all the time and resources into building our vacation home we wanted to insure that it was maintained in absolute sterling condition. We hired a very competent caretaker/maintenance man/landscaper whose only job is to insure that this house and its grounds are kept in really excellent condition. It's a lot more expensive to have a full time caretaker, but you'll see - the results are worth the cost.
