Get in touch with the fun, funky, and a bit slower life style on the Coral Bay side of St. John during your stay at the beautiful Dancing Dolphins Villa overlooking Coral Bay and the surrounding lush hillsides. Come see why The New York Times rated Coral Bay as #4 of the top 52 places in the world to visit.
Built in 2007, this 2,400 square foot custom-designed home, with gated entrance, sits high on the hillside in the exclusive Upper Carolina neighborhood with spectacular views of Coral Harbor and the unforgettable Caribbean Sea beyond. Dancing Dolphins Villa is just 5 minutes to the quaint village of Coral Bay and just 5 minutes from the first in the string of world famous beaches within the Virgin Islands National Park along the north shore of St. John.
As you wind your way up the green hillsides to Dancing Dolphins, getting there is easy on the fully-paved roads of Upper Carolina. You know you have arrived when you see the decorative “Dolphin” gate awaiting your entry to the concrete driveway with ample parking. Guests will be greeted by lush, professionally landscaped grounds which include beautiful native flora and numerous tropical fruit plants such as lemon, pineapple, mango and plantains. Entrance to the main house is from the adjacent covered parking area through elegant, custom mahogany and glass doors. Amidst the greenery surrounding the main entry area, guests will enter the pool deck area that is privately located adjacent to the main house. Here guests can enjoy the refreshing pool and expansive 1400 square foot patio with loungers, wet bar, shaded sitting area, gas BBQ grill, and an outdoor table perfect for alfresco dining. After a day of beaching, sightseeing or shopping, the 'tiki bar' invites guests to relax with a cool drink and an occasional dip in the refreshing pool with the dolphin fountain bubbling in the background.
With traditional island design, Dancing Dolphins Villa features beautiful mahogany framed, arched windows, creative native stone accents, beautiful tile flooring, teak cabinetry and granite counters. The island-style home features four bedrooms on two levels with one bedroom on the upper level and three others on the lower level and air-conditioning throughout. Unlike many vacation homes, three of the bedrooms in the main house offer unrestricted ocean views and full width decks that provide a relaxing area to 'soak in' the fabulous views. Entering the air-conditioned main level of the villa, guests will be greeted by the large, formal dining table and open air great room with comfortable seating areas framed by full wall sliding glass doors that open to a full width deck overlooking gorgeous Coral Bay and the Caribbean Sea beyond. A fully equipped gourmet kitchen and an adjacent casual dining area completes the great room. The air-conditioned master bedroom with king size bed and en suite bath also features full wall sliding glass doors that open to the full width side deck. For guests who may need to take care of a 'bit of business' while on vacation, or those needing a private location for surfing the web, there is a small study that is also conveniently located on the main level of Dancing Dolphins Villa.
Access to the lower level bedrooms is by a partially covered stone walkway between the driveway and main house. Entry to the fully air-conditioned lower level bedrooms and living area is through convenient sliding glass doors. Once inside the lower level foyer, there is the full bathroom located immediately to the left of the entrance. The first bedroom on the lower level is a queen bedroom and is located adjacent to the bathroom. Beyond this bedroom is an open sitting area with a comfortable couch and chair, television, elliptical trainer and small desk. The other queen size bedroom is conveniently located directly off the sitting area and also shares the full width deck. The twin bedroom is also located adjacent to the sitting area and features 2 twin sized beds perfect for children. There are full wall sliding glass doors leading to the full width deck in each of the queen bedrooms and the sitting area.
