About the Property

2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 4

Sopra Mare (Above The Sea) is a stunning cliff villa, built on solid native rock set atop Maria Bluff with crashing surf below. This unique home offers gated privacy yet has a one mile level walking circuit on paved roads where you may sip your morning coffee and watch iguana's cross your path. The home is continually cooled by a slight gentle breeze which generally assures no biting insects. Less than five minutes to town of Cruz Bay which offers excellent jazz at several locations on Saturday and Sunday including the famous Beach Bar - partial setting for my book about St. John 'Keep Left.' Shopping and night life abound in Cruz Bay.

Your villa is a world apart from noise and traffic; yet three minutes to the Weston Hotel, it's sandy beach and great Sunday Brunches. Enjoy the song of the tree frogs late at night and wake to the hummingbirds making a feast on Sopra Mare flowers. Ceiling fans in all rooms and full individual frosty air conditioning in each bedroom.

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Sopra Mare (Above The Sea)is a stunning cliff home, built in 2009 on solid native rock set atop Maria Bluff with crashing surf below. This unique home offers gated privacy yet has a one mile level walking circuit on paved roads where you may sip your morning coffee and watch iguana's cross your path. The villa is continually cooled by a slight gentle breeze which generally assures no biting insects. Less than five minutes to town of Cruz Bay which offers excellent jazz at several locations on Saturday and Sunday including the famous Beach Bar - partial setting for my first book about St. John 'Keep Left.' Shopping and night life abound in Cruz Bay. Other features include full laundry, digital cable, two connections for your iPod or MP3 player, secure, wireless high-speed Internet access for your laptop. Your villa is a world apart from noise and traffic; yet three minutes to the Westin Hotel, it's sandy beach and great Sunday Brunches. Enjoy the song of the treefrogs late at night and wake to the hummingbirds making a feast on Sopra Mare flowers. Ceiling fans in all rooms and full individual frosty air conditioning in each bedroom. Laze away in the pool on colorful rafts or if it's the right time of year watch the Rolex Sailing Cup from the balconies with a cool beverage in your hand. Sopra Mare has everything you would expect from an island home; convenience, elegance and comfort.

Why the Owner Chose Cruz Bay, Saint John, USVI:
I actually got to St. John by mistake after over bidding at a charity event in Vail, Colorado about six years ago. This was the result of definitely drinking way too much wine by the time the auction began. By morning after they presented me with a bill for the event I had purchased two TV's, a shotgun, a pink Harley Davis Motorcycle and 7 nights in the Virgin Islands! But I have never been sorry about the trip and as a result it has led me on a long and winding road of adventure! St. John is very unique, approximately 60% of the island is National Park with numerous hiking and walking trails. Old sugar plantations dot the island. The more than forty beaches are incredible, most with pure white sand. The Caribbean water is always warm and crystal clear, often you can see fifty feet down with an abundance of sea life. The people of St. John are exceptionally friendly and eager to help you enjoy your island experience.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The home is secluded behind a private gate with zero steps to access - something nearly unheard of on St. John. Lush landscape awaits you and soon several lime and banana trees will provide a source for frosty drinks. The living room and master bedroom have a panorama twenty foot expansive view achieved by opening one set of folding doors. Complete entertainment with a 34' plasma TV, CD, DVD, IPOD system awaits your enjoyment and of course WIFI throughout. The kitchen has granite counters, stainless steel appliances and everything a chef would require to whip up a gourmet meal. Or you can dine al fresco under the stars on a Brown Jordan table and matching chairs. A stainless steel commercial radiant bbq with separate burner is steps away. As you are on the ocean its a great pleasure to occasionally see whales, dolphin and giant turtles swimming below you. Once night falls, watch the cruise ships slowly sail across your view on the way to their next foreign port. As you are facing directly south, the villa receives all day sun allowing the pool to remain at 80 degrees.
