About the Property

4 Bedrooms Suites with Baths, a 5th bedroom and 2 Half Baths, sleeps 8 adults.

AcquaBlu has all the luxuries of a villa but feels like a home, because it was our home! It's 4800 square feet, with 7 porches and balconies, a 38' x 12' pool, a library, an extra large kitchen set up to serve a party, 4 uniquely themed bedrooms, gorgeous gardens, a separate media room with an extra pull-out bed, a laundry room and breakfast area, and a wine cellar for your use, stocked with the best Italian and French wines.

The villa is located in the quiet and private Boatman Point Association, which includes 38 acres with only 12 houses. Our home looks out on Rendezvous Bay and the vast Caribbean Sea. We chose to build our house here because of the stunning views, the privacy, and the constant ocean breezes, while still being only 7 minutes to Cruz Bay.

Sun, surf and breathtaking views. 10/16/2015

VRBO Bear stayed here:


On the day of check-in Jessy met us at the barge and led us to the Villa. The short drive to the Villa was picturesque. As we entered the property, we were blown away by the location and the unobstructed views of the blue Caribbean! Our favorite times in the Villa were to watch the sunrises with a cup of coffee and feel the strong Caribbean breezes at night. The Villa is very spacious and well-appointed, wonderful for family gatherings or special events. All parts of the Villa had breathtaking views of the ocean and the architecture allowed for plenty of sun and breeze. Its close proximity to Cruz Bay made shopping and dining a breeze. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the coral at world famous Trunk Bay and also visited the nearby Westin. I would highly recommend this Villa for anyone looking for a perfect Caribbean vacation!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I was four years out of UVa when I came down to St. John on the first Pan Am 727 service to St Thomas. It was love at first site and truly changed my life goals. Back then you needed a machete to cut your way through to the North Shore Beaches. It was quite an adventure, if you could manage to rent one of the eight available jeeps on island. Now St. John has grown up, but it is still pristine as 3/4 of the Island remains undeveloped as US National Park. I can still glimpse the old days when traveling about. St John has seen me through two families and now a new life with Ayn. I raised a daughter here, gave shelter to four other children, built a small guest house for myself when matters were in change, and now live on Bordeaux with Ayn. It is a bit difficult to believe that all of this has occupied 50 plus years, but it has and the fascination with this rock in the middle of the Atlantic continues unabated. I will be here to help you have the best holiday you possibly can. We built our first house on Gifft Hill in 1989. We used it as a rental house and traveled back and forth between Connecticut and St. John. Our daughter Megan grew up between our two worlds. Finally in 1995 we decided to move down here permanently. AcquaBlu is our second St. John home, completed in 2005. We lived there for 5 years but decided it was a little too big for us. Megan went off to Davidson College, so it was just the two of us and we decided we wanted to travel. Dale built a little house nearby and now we come and go as we please.

Why the Owner Chose Estate Rendezvous and Ditlef, Saint John, USVI:
After living in my first Island home for 12 years the lure of the ocean started working on me. I searched for almost three years before deciding on this one acre parcel to build our compound. Primarily it was being on the sea, the breezes and perfect views that sold us on the location; not muggy, not buggy, never hot as we catch the Tradewinds year round. Plus we have a night time view of the twinkling lights of St. Thomas and the sunrise over Ram's Head Point in the morning, along with the gorgeous ocean views and the sounds of the sea. There is something magical about leaving town and in minutes being totally away from it all. We also loved the Boatman Point community. It's safe, quiet, and very private.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Being part of The Boatman Point Private Association gives access to its rubble beach reserved for owners and their guests. Acqua Blu is accessible by a well kept private concrete road that leads in from South Shore Drive. You are truly out on the Point with amazing views, trade winds, and privacy as soon as you come off South Shore Rd.
