Five minutes from the bustling center of Cruz Bay, you will find a secluded retreat in Contant Farm called Argonauta. With 5 bedrooms, each with its own en suite bathroom, you will wake up each mprning to spectacular ocean views.
Have your coffee on the wrap around deck, sporting a 270 degree panorama of the Caribbean Sea. Then head to St John's famous North Shore beaches, just 15 minutes away. Finish the day playing in Argonauta's plunge pool or having a fun cocktail at the fully equipped pool bar. As the day ends, head to the hot tub to soak and watch the glorious Argonauta sunsets. When you are ready for dinner, make use of a full chef's kitchen or head down to Cruz Bay. Despite Argonaut's privacy, you're just a short drive from the town center.
Argonauta has two king bedroom suites in the main house. The lower main house bedroom is large enough to accommodate a crib or air mattress for littler guests. Its bathroom has a full outdoor shower enclosed in a screened stone grotto. The upper main house bedroom is accessed via a spiral staircase that has its own bathroom with shower. In addition to the bedroom, it has an office nook with a a mahogany desk facing the sea.
Two more king bedrooms are found in the guest "pod", each with stone showers and hammocks to soothe your soul. A 5th king bedroom with en suite bathroom, is tucked away off the pool deck and may be available to guests upon request. Please inquire.
As for dining al fresco, there is a wrap -around deck on the west side of the main house. It's a great spot for dining and sunsets, or just watching ships large and small glide towards St Thomas and its glittering lights in the distance.
Argonauta should be called Argonauta 2.0. It suffered massive damage from the 2017 hurricanes, and has been completely rebuilt by master builder Jonathan Doran. All its decks, fixtures and amenities are new and state of the art, from a new chef's kitchen with wine refrigerator, all new Mitsubishi air-conditioners throughout, to a completely rebuilt pool deck, with bar , pool and hot tub. For entertainment, should you want to take a break from star gazing and stream a movie, a professional grade internet system now reaches every room in the house as well as the decks. Or everyone can gather in the Great Room and watch together on the 50 inch smart TV.
Happily, one thing has not changed. The view, enjoyed by so many guests over the years, could not be destroyed by the storms, and remains as breathtaking as ever.
