Property description

Surrounded by 376 ft of pristine shoreline and breathtaking views of the Caribbean, La Dolce Vita sits on an acre of lush tropical landscaping just south of the peaceful town of Coral Bay. Native stone retaining walls and stairs lead you to a sunbathing deck and the waters edge, inviting you to explore with a refreshing snorkel or relaxing swim. An exceptional spot to begin or end the day in peaceful meditation.
The house is tastefully and comfortably furnished with custom Mahogany cabinets and Italian tile and the ocean breeze flows freely through every room. Most of the time, guests find their favorite spot in the hammock or in one of the over sized chairs on the terrace. A perfect place to relax and enjoy the unobstructed water views ... The balconies give the feeling of being on a cruise ship and looking into the crystal clear waters is like looking into an aquarium.
There are 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Each bedroom is Air-Conditioned with queen size beds and Cable TV.
The house is equipped with high speed wifi, TV/ DVD/Netflix, stereo, BBQ grill, coolers, beach chairs, beach towels, some snorkeling gear, ... everything you need to have a great vacation!
The U shaped, paved driveway makes for easy in and out access as well as ample parking for several cars.

La Dolce Vita is a privately owned and managed home. The owners have lived on St. John since 2000 and are ready to assist you in anyway they can to assure you have a great vacation. 'Captain' Fernando is your on-island host and will thrill you with his enthusiasm and dedication to the St. John lifestyle. Be sure to ask about 'Fernando's Republic', which is a 30' Hunter, for a memorable day on the water snorkeling around St. John or a trip to the BVI's.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We were both born in the mountains. One is from Colorado and the other from Northern Italy. La Dolce Vita was created out of the labors of love. We hope you will enjoy our home and property as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose St. John, USVI:
I think it was really the people that made us choose to move to St. John. Great community spirit. People always say that they want to 'retire' and move to an island. (We moved but we didn't retire!!!)

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Having a house on the water in St. John is an incredible luxury. Sometimes the water is so clear and still we feel we're looking into an aquarium instead of the ocean. Having an acre of waterfront land is great because you don't feel any neighbors and the gardens are beautifully landscaped so one can really walk around and enjoy the property.
