LOCATION.

Seawind is located on a secluded and quiet hillside lot in Chocolate Hole with scenic south - southwest facing views of Chocolate Hole and Hart Bay. This location is just a 5-minute drive on paved roads to the restaurants, groceries and nightlife of Cruz Bay!



My villa is true rendition of the traditional Caribbean architecture, with four hip roofed buildings that are connected by decks, covered walkways and patios.

A new expanded tile deck and railing will be erected and completed on, or by, November 1st, 2014! This new deck area will be just what the villa needs; an expansive area to sunbathe, entertain, star gaze. In addition, as always, AL-fresco dinning is a must!

(Please check back for new pictures as well as new amenities, which will enhance your stay at Seawind)

All rooms except the guest (loft) bedroom are on the pool level. The air-conditioned great house, with a vaulted 25-foot beamed cathedral ceiling, contains the great room, an interior dining area and a loft bedroom and Bathroom. The Bathroom is unique because it has something that is quite rare in a Villa: A full size bathtub to soak in!!!!

The granite and mahogany kitchen is attached to the great house and is also air-conditioned.

The two a/c adjoining master bedrooms are on the south (left) side of the pool. Temperature controlled rooms, exposed beam ceilings, multiple ceiling fans, screened sliding windows, Terra-cotta tiled floors throughout and beautiful landscaping provide an inviting and relaxing tropical atmosphere in this well furnished, very charming home.

LIVING/DINNING.

The well appointed, a/c living area has every amenity. It features furniture from Bali that is comfortable and cozy. You will find that the room is accented by local St. John artist paintings. Each painting tells a story and is a true representation of the beauty of St. John. Entertainment includes a HD cable TV/DVD with surround sound with stereo /CD. The deck off the great room is terra cotta tiled and includes retractable awnings that allow you to relax in the sun or the shade. You may choose from four dining areas, inside at the teak table for 4-6 in the great room, or outside on the deck off the kitchen at a table for 8. There is the bar/island in the kitchen, which is a great place to congregate for lunch or drinks.

KITCHEN.

The large, bright, air conditioned, granite and mahogany kitchen is a chef's delight. It includes a tiled bar/center island with bar chairs, a 4-burner gas stove and Convection oven, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, blender, coffeemaker, double filtered and ozonated water, a telephone and a complete assortment of dinnerware and cookware and a washer/dryer.

BEDROOMS.

Both air-conditioned master bedrooms have a cozy and romantic décor. Both are furnished with king beds, nightstands, lamps, artwork, accessories, and a hanging closet, and both have French doors that open to ocean views. Both master bedrooms have fully tiled baths and showers, linen closets and a locking safe.

Both master bath are fully tiled, with the main master encased in native stone wall with dual shower heads.

The 3rd bedroom is a nicely furnished a/c loft with a queen bed and a tiled bath and shower that is located on the lower level of the great room.

About Curtis Penn

I am from Baltimore and was born in Central New York. If you know Central New York, then you know how cold and miserable the winters are! I came to St. John in 1995 and fell in love with the beauty of the island. I have traveled all over the world and nothing compares to the water, beaches, people and restaurants in St. John!

Curtis Penn purchased this villa in 2001

Why Curtis Penn chose Estate Chocolate Hole and Great Cruz Bay

I bought this property because of the amenities as well as the location! It is quiet and private, but only minutes to Cruz bay and the beaches

What makes this villa unique

The views are spectacular! You see Ocean from every room!! At night the stars are bright and the constellations magnificent!

A slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our two daughters and my parents spent a wonderful week in this house. My two teenage daughters shared the loft bedroom and it worked out great for them. The views were a favorite as at night we gazed up at the stars and during the day, overlooked the water and watched for iguanas and hummingbirds by our deck, The location was a short drive from the coves for snorkeling and a quick trip into town for groceries or dinner. The day trip with Curtis on the boat was a blast! Highly recommend it. The house was clean and well decorated. We would highly recommend this house and would happily return.

Wonderful stay at an amazing property

  • 5 of 5

Two couples stayed at Seawind for eight days in March. The property is very clean and well laid-out. The kitchen and living room (and loft bedroom) are in a separate building from the other two bedrooms. This worked well for those who got up early and wanted to make coffee/breakfast, so that the ones who wanted to sleep a little later would not be disturbed. The patio was huge, and ran all the way across the front of the property. Four nice loungers by the pool were great for laying around and looking at the view over Chocolate Hole. The patio was in all sun for most of the day, so the pool was not too cold. There was a covered walkway between the bedrooms and the living area in case it rained. There was a table and 6 chairs on the patio for breakfast/dinner outside. The kitchen was updated and well stocked with small appliances, cookware, and dishes. Wifi was excellent in the kitchen and living area, but very weak signal (if any) in the detached bedrooms. The tiled bedrooms were spacious with plenty of closet space and the attached bathrooms were nice with tiled showers and room to store your toiletries. Each bedroom had patio doors overlooking Chocolate Hole. Nice! Water pressure and temperature were good the whole time we were there. There were plenty of beach towels provided, as well as beach chairs and coolers for your use. There was also a welcome basket with snacks that was a very nice touch. All rooms had A/C that worked very well. The drive in to Cruz Bay was only about 10 minutes, and less than 5 minutes to the closest grocery store (St. John Market). Very convenient. Despite being so close to town, the area was actually very quiet and peaceful. The driveway to the villa was a bit narrow, but easy to navigate once you got used to it. Myrtle called after we had gotten settled in to see if we had everything we needed. She also checked in with us the day before we left to arrange someone to meet us at the ferry dock to turn in the Jeep we had rented. We had a great vacation and would definitely stay at this property again.

Great vacation getaway, beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

We recently returned from a ten day stay at Seawind villa. The property is exactly as shown and the island is beautiful, comfortable and we cannot wait to return. I would recomend this home to anyone looking for a villa close to town and yet far enough away to relax and feel like you are in a very private spot!

Mellow Yellow

  • 4 of 5

The driveway was a bit daunting the first time I pulled in, but I got it down. Other than that, this is a wonderful home with a great layout. Everything was in working order and clean. Location was perfect and the view was amazing! Curtis and Myrtle were AWESOME as well. They handled our trip and requests like champs. I highly recommend the lobster tail at High Tide in Cruz Bay and lunch at Foxy's on Jost Van Dyke. I would most definitely stay here again!

Bucket list trip --Beyond Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, wow, wow! If you're looking for 5 star service and an amazingly relaxed vacation, book this house!! We are a family of 4---children ages 3 and 5-- and were looking for a last minute getaway. The house was more than what we needed for 4 people but it was so worth it! Curtis is the best, along with Myrtle--they are your go-to's for making everything happen and that they do WELL! The pool area is fabulous for all ages, the house and kitchen are perfect in so many ways. We chose the package with the car & gift certificates and then ended up adding on the boat trip with Curtis which was one of our trip highlights!! (Curtis is great with all ages and makes your day SO SO SO much fun-- a must do!) Book it the house, the car and the boat-- you'll have a trip of a lifetime! :)

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three generations stayed at Seawind for a week and thought it was just great! The property is beautiful and very well maintained. It was wonderful to have everything we needed stocked for us upon arrival. The three children (7, 9, 11) loved the pool and spent every possible moment swimming. The villa is close to Cruz Bay and to the beaches. Our day with Curtis at the helm was a real treat! Curtis was wonderful with kids, as well as the adults, and took us to great snorkeling spots, great restaurants for lunch and dinner, and tranquil beaches. He arranged a car rental and also someone to pick us up and take us back to the airport which was so helpful. We appreciated the restaurant recommendations...especially ZoZo's which was outstanding. Curtis certainly added to our enjoyment of Seawind, St. John and the surrounding islands. We loved our stay at Seawind and would heartily recommend the villa to vacationers on the island. And we would certainly love to go back.
