Property description

Calypso del Sol has glorious water views from the pool deck and from both large, covered porches, with inviting views of Chocolate Hole and Pillsbury Sound. You can relax around the unusually large pool or take a short walk to Chocolate Hole Beach or over the hill to Hart Bay. The house is fully and beautifully appointed to offer every comfort in a close-in but very private location, while making absolutely the most of its beautiful Caribbean setting. It is air conditioned and offers free WiFi.

The living room is furnished with traditional Caribbean furniture. With vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans, tiled floors, Caribbean art, and white walls, Calypso del Sol has a relaxing and inviting interior. For your entertainment, a TV/VCR/DVD, cable, and a stereo with a CD player are provided. The wicker sofas are covered in a colorful island print fabric. The great room is fully air-conditioned. And the views never stop.

The gourmet kitchen has cherry cabinets, a new dishwasher and stainless steel appliances, microwave, and a center island to allow collaborative meal preparation. The plates, glasses, serving utensils, etc., are also new and evocative of the tropics. The kitchen is fully equipped with almost every kitchen appliance or tool one could want. Although many wonderful restaurants can be found close by in Cruz Bay, you will probably find yourselves drawn to this efficient, fabulous kitchen to prepare a few meals featuring local food available from nearby grocery stores.

Among the most charming features of Calypso del Sol are its porches. Sliding glass doors toward the Bay open to the 500 square foot porch from the upstairs living/dining room with a fabulous view of Chocolate Hole Bay through the arched overhang. The same porch design on the lower level has comfortable rocking chairs, providing another attractive space outside the two downstairs bedrooms for reading or other activities. These porches are comfortably furnished to ensure maximum enjoyment and ease.

Just outside the living/dining room on the top level toward the pool is a screened porch with a table that seats 6 for al fresco dining – or you can eat in the inside dining room which also comfortably seats 6. A sofa and chairs make the screened porch an outdoor living or dining room, cooled by breezes from the ceiling fans.

Calypso del Sol sleeps 6 comfortably in its three equally-spacious bedrooms. One bedroom is off the living room, and has a king-sized bed; this bedroom – as the others – has a sliding glass door out to the porch and has wonderful views of Chocolate Hole Bay. Air conditioned and with ceiling fans, this room provides a tranquil, romantic island getaway. The large bath has a full, island style, walk-in tiled shower, and comfortable privacy.

The second and third equally-spacious bedrooms are on the lower level and open out to the large covered deck on that level. Each features king-sized beds that can also be configured as twin beds. Both bedrooms have sliding glass doors onto the porch and gorgeous views of Chocolate Hole Bay. Both are fully air conditioned. The porch has comfortable rocking chairs for easy reading or just watching the boats go by. The linens and décor for these bedrooms are tropical and cheerful, and “black out” curtains are provided for those who want to sleep in.

St. John’s gorgeous beaches may lure you into the Caribbean, but you may not be able to tear yourself away from Calypso del Sol’s azure blue, unusually large pool. The crystal clear pool is perfect for floating or swimming under St. John’s sun. Chaises make this a truly comfortable place to while away the day, reading or tanning or napping; floats are provided for enjoying the pool. Later, under the twinkling evening stars, you can enjoy the 6-person hot tub located right on the pool deck.

Calypso del Sol is the very definition of a charming, romantic, Caribbean-styled Villa. This Villa has it all. The landscaping consists of lush topical trees and flowers, including banana palms, guava, and many other local fruit trees. Because of its quietness, fine appointments, perfect location, and Caribbean style, Calypso del Sol is one of the most sought after homes on St. John for friends and families looking for adventure or for a quiet retreat.

Chocolate Hole Bay and Hart Bay, plus many others

Car: Necessary

Chocolate Hole Bay is quiet but glorious, with wonderful views out to the Sound toward St Thomas. The Bay typically has a few dozen small boats -- mostly sail boats -- anchored in it, making for a beautiful scene. You can walk about 10 minutes down to the beach for some gentle swimming and snorkeling off this sandy but 'unimproved' beach. Happily, this quiet area does not attract crowds like the famous North Shore beaches. One advantage of the Chocolate Hole location is that it is about 7 minutes to town, but the area is a quiet, safe neighborhood.

Other Activities: Sunning, reading, exploring, hiking, snoozing -- trying island drinks!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Three couples jointly own Calypso del Sol. We all live in Northern Virginia and have known each other for years. St. John has been the scene of many special events for us...one of the couples even got married on St. John!

Why the Owner Chose Cruz Bay, St. John, USVI:
We all LOVE St. John and purchased Calypso to have a wonderful villa to share with others as well as a great place to stay ourselves. We're convinced that St. John is the best island in the Caribbean because it is so beautiful, the people who live there are wonderful, and the island is 2/3 National Park and therefore protected from over-development.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
At Calypso, we especially love the fabulous sunsets, the big pool, the screened porch, and the perfect location – close enough to Cruz Bay but way quiet. Oh yes, and the birds and iguanas.
