About the Property
4 Bed, 4.5 Bath Secluded Eco-Friendly villa overlooking Francis Bay
Completed in 2012, On a Clear Day… was built as an eco-friendly vacation home for fun, families, flexibility, health, nature, and finally and most importantly, life renewal. Your stay should rest your soul, invigorate your body, and restore your spirit. From the privacy and tranquility afforded by the National Park’s location to the structure’s exercise room and 54 foot long pool lap lane for workouts to a completely flat first floor (including one bedroom) for guests with physical challenges, this villa offers something for everyone.
For those interested in learning more about Green Energy Conservation, On a Clear Day… is a 5 Star Tropical Green Building, as certified by St. John’s Island Green Living Association. The villa makes use of low solar gain, low-E glass throughout together with LED lighting and Energy Star appliances, fans, and TVs. Low flow WaterSense plumbing fixtures, dual flush toilets, individually controlled high SEER-rated ductless air-conditioning units, solar heated domestic hot water, and a solar reflective metal roof sitting over a thermal reflective blanket and fiberboard insulation have also been incorporated into the design. The entire villa is powered by two large ground-mounted photovoltaic arrays situated on land just below the structure. The villa is also equipped with an emergency generator should there be an Island power outage. Continuing in the Green vein, On a Clear Day... utilizes organic-based fertilizer for its landscaping and the mildest forms of insecticide for pest control.
The entire interior is enclosed in one structure. Four large bedrooms comprise the sleeping space, three at 308 square feet and the master at 480. Three contain king size beds, the fourth with two twins that can easily be brought together to create king sized sleeping. All bedrooms have ceiling fans, secluded balconies, and private baths with dual sinks and tumbled marble showers. Each has an individually controlled air-conditioning unit along with a 40 inch LED TV with Dish Satellite programming and a Blu-ray disc player.
The kitchen offers Brazilian granite countertops and environment-friendly bamboo cabinetry and is equipped with an ultra-quiet dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, convection oven/range with hood, microwave, and wine cooler. A washer/dryer is available for guests along with a Weber gas outdoor grill. The kitchen has counter seating for 4 and abuts a dining room with seating for 8 to 10.
The Great Room is furnished in contemporary green bamboo/rattan and offers panoramic views of the pool, pool deck, and Francis Bay from every corner. A 60 inch LED TV with Bose Surround Sound is available for your viewing and music pleasure.
An air-conditioned exercise room with TV/stereo/iPod dock provides a Bowflex home gym, Sole elliptical machine, and a Concept II rowing Ergometer.
House Internet is provided through fiber optic broadband technology initiated in St. Thomas and is signaled directly to On a Clear Day … via SkyFiber. The system’s speed is 24Mbps/5Mbps, far faster than that offered in most other villas on the Island, which use DSL. Should primary connectivity be lost, the villa’s Internet transparently and automatically fails over to a backup AT&T cellular connection. WiFi transmits to every room. The house is also equipped with a cellular signal booster system positioned towards St. Thomas. This arrangement serves to stabilize and strengthen incoming and outgoing cellular phone and Internet signals. Additionally, your communications will be via cell towers on St. Thomas and not Tortola, helping to eliminate Tortola roaming charges. St. Thomas antennas are AT&T dominated. Thus, most cell phone users at On a Clear Day … and on St. John find AT&T the company of choice for coverage, quality, and avoidance of roaming fees. You may wish to consider a pay-as-you-go AT&T phone for your vacation and, for times away from the villa, AT&T or Virgin Mobile cellular Internet MiFi.
A wide pool deck supplies comfortable lounging with incomparable views of Francis Bay below and St. Thomas in the distance. Poolside offers various degrees of sun protection from out and out tanning to partial protection provided by trellises to complete coverage. A low chemical saltwater pool runs 3 foot 4 inches to 4 foot 6 inches in depth and contains a 54 foot long, 7 foot wide lap lane for exercise and an in-pool bench for relaxation. A screened-in porch off the dining room offers space for bug-free outside eating and socialization and easily opens to the pool deck via sliders.
We feel On a Clear Day… provides for both a healthful and relaxing vacation for friends and family and for youngsters, oldsters, and everyone in between. Nature and serenity abound. Yet, if needed, technology is not far away. We hope you consider partaking in the St. John Experience.

Year Purchased: 2012
Why Estate Annaberg, Saint John, USVI:
Our grandfather purchased this land in the 1950s and as the area around it became pristine National Park, it just sat there. It was always our father's dream to build a house on it that would bring our widespread family together. That dream has finally become a reality. He put thought and love into every detail of this house. If he could, he would live down there forever, but since that cannot happen, we are able to share the house with you. We truly want people to be able to appreciate the beauty of the island from a truly beautiful home.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Tranquility, health, and flexibility set this villa apart on St. John. The peacefulness of its location within the Virgin Island National Park together with an exercise room, 54 foot long pool lap lane, and easy access to hiking and ocean swimming/snorkeling combine to make your vacation both relaxing and an energy renewing experience. If you are specifically looking for the privacy and solitude of the Francis Bay/Annaberg Plantation area of St. John, On a Clear Day… is the only home in the small cluster of Francis Bay rental villas that offers both a pool and fantastic water views from almost every angle of the property.
