About the Property

2 bedrooms, 2 baths 1-2 &3-4 guests have different rates Read rates carefully.

The views, privacy, comfort, and romantic ambiance of this intimate, elegant villa will delight you. Clothing Optional. Clinging to the hillside above Cruz Bay, Perelandra's breathtaking views sweep from the deserted cays nestled in the Windward Passage to the sailboats skimming through Pillsbury Sound to the spectacular sunsets resting upon St. Thomas. Later in the evening, St. Thomas' twinkling lights provide a romantic backdrop to your evening.

The villa's perfect location offers proximity to Cruz Bay with its ferries, restaurants, and shops -- and to the world-famous National Park beaches of the North Shore while also providing complete privacy among lush landscaping.

Perelandra offers two luxuriously appointed bedrooms -- each with its own air-conditioning, and two large bathrooms -- each with a large walk-in shower. There is a queen sized sofa bed in the living rom. This meticulously-crafted home includes cove molding, mood lighting, Saltilo tiles, exotic woods, and ceiling fans throughout


Glass tiles set in the vaulted ceilings bathe the living areas in light. Bedroom and great room doors open out onto two levels of wrap-around decks and verandas which, in turn, lead to the beautiful, refreshing swimming pool -- perfectly sized to be large enough to cool off and exercise in (10 x 18) but small enough to warm up quickly in the sun. While the pool area provides beautiful views of the ocean and St. Thomas, others can not view you as it is surrounded by garden walls and verdant foliage and flowers.

Perelandra is very-well provisioned. Its kitchen provides everything you'll need to fix snacks for the beach, to make your own Caribbean drinks to sip poolside or while watching the sunset, or to prepare that romantic dinner for just the two of you. Special kitchen features include a large side-by-side refrigerator with ice-maker, range with built-in griddle, chef-quality pots and pans, and designer dinnerware.

Additional amenities also include a full size washer and dryer, 2 tv's, many games, CDs, DVDs, videos, phones upstairs and down with answering machine, beach chairs and towels, picnic coolers, beach bags. See the extensive list below of all additional amenities provided for your comfort and convenience. All items are top quality.

Perelandra is perfect for a romantic interlude for the two of you, for two couples vacationing together (bedrooms are equally desirable), or for a family with children.

Location

Car: Necessary

Perelandra has the best location on the best island in the Caribbean.

St. John is unique among the Caribbean islands because it is the only one that is 2/3 National Park--providing you with rare access to pristine beaches and water for swimming & snorkeling as well as miles of nature trails to hike. After a days recreation, come home to relax at Perelandra.

Sitting on Perelandra's deck with an expansive view of the turquoise ocean and surrounding mountainous islands, surrounded with fragrant tropical flowers & chirping yellow sugarbirds, watch the brilliant sunsets as day turns into dusk, and then linger a bit longer & watch the twinkling lights of St. Thomas appear as the tree frogs begin your evening serenade.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My husband and I were lucky enough to buy this beautiful villa. We want to share it with you. We have been coming to St. John for years and think it is the most beautiful place on earth. I know you will love Perelandra and St. John.

Why the Owner Chose Estate Bethany, Saint John, USVI:
Who wouldn't want to own a piece of Paradise? We looked at lots of houses on the island and Perelandra was the perfect villa for us. The view and location were the reasons we bought this villa. We upgraded the house and now it is perfect.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We're Green! Solar panels help provide the electricity in our villa.
