About the Property
5 bdrm, 5.5 bath, central a/c, pool, beachfront
Serenata is a gorgeous three level home that was completed in the winter of 2009. It consists of a large main house, plus a 2 ½ story stone tower that overlooks the pool. The house sits as close to the beach as the law allows. You park on the second level and enter into the great room, which contains the interior living and dining areas, plus the kitchen, a powder room (half bath) and a laundry room. To the right of the great room is the main house bedroom. The stone tower is located on the left of the main house. One bedroom is on the second level, while a flight of exterior stairs leads up to the bedroom on the 3rd level. Off the front of the great room is an exceedingly comfortable lanai (an outdoor living/dining area.) From the lanai, exterior stairs lead down a half level to the pool and spacious pool deck. Exterior stairs also lead from the lanai down to the master bedroom and the twins bedroom, both of which are on the ground level.
The interior living room is even more comfortable than the photos show, with “sink into it” furniture, central a/c, a 42” flat screen TV/DVD and AM/FM stereo/CD played through Bose speakers and high speed wireless internet. The lanai is a natural extension of the living room, but it feels so different - very airy and tropical. This lanai definitely captures the essence of a classic island villa. Under the lanai’s roof, cushioned furniture seats 8 while the view through the columned arches is turquoise water and blue skies. From the lanai the only sound that you hear is the sweet music of gently breaking surf. In the great room the dining table seats 8-10, and there are 4 high back swivel armchairs at the bar/counter. The dining table on the lanai seats 6-8 and there is a breakfast/lunch table for 4-6 on the pool deck.
The attractive and well equipped kitchen has mahogany cabinets with granite counter tops, stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances, including a side by side refrigerator and freezer with water and ice dispenser, a 4 burner gas stove and oven, double sink, microwave, dishwasher, a blender, toaster and a coffeemaker with a coffee grinder. All dishes, dinnerware, pots and pans, cooking utensils and dining linens for a party of 10 are provided.
The bedrooms of Serenata were designed to insure an excellent degree of privacy and to capture the beautiful waterfront views. From the 1st floor to the 3rd floor the bedrooms are as follows;
• Bedroom 1 - the master bedroom - 1st floor- 375 sq/ft – king bed – terra cotta patio
• Bedroom 2 - the twins bedroom - 1st floor - 200 sq/ft – twin beds – terra cotta patio
• Bedroom 3 – main house bedroom – 2nd floor – 210 sq/ft - king bed – private balcony
• Bedroom 4 – pool house bedroom – 2nd floor – 210 sq/ft - king bed – private balcony
• Bedroom 5 – pool house bedroom – 3rd floor – 210. sq/ft - king bed – private balcony
All the bedrooms are fully screened with central a/c and each has a covered balcony or deck All have a private bath with a very private stone shower with views of blue skies and blue water. Bedrooms 1, 2 and 5 are accessed by exterior tiled stairs. Bedrooms 1, 2, 4, and 5 can be accessed through the great room, or from a private gated entrance that doesn’t require entering the great house.
The pool and sun deck are amenities that will keep you and your kids glued to Serenata. There are a couple of pool features worth mentioning. First, a third of the pool is 4 feet deep and the other 2/3rds is 6-7 feet deep, providing areas for different levels of swimmers. Second, in the shallow end a bench seat runs the width of the pool, providing a terrific place to sit in the warm water and have a drink, a conversation, a contemplative moment, or a bit of each. The barbeque pit is on the pool deck

- This exquisite villa took five years to plan, design and build and was completed in February of 2009. The owners are successful US real estate developers, and when it comes to building a St. John luxury home, there’s no substitute for in depth construction knowledge and experience. With its classic design features, central (built in) air conditioning, tasteful and comfortable furnishings, and a 5 million dollar price tag, Serenata would be considered a supreme luxury home in any St. John neighborhood. But Serenata’s beachfront location really sets it apart, with peace and quiet, serenity, privacy and great natural beauty. There is also swimming and snorkeling in calm, clear, 82-84 degree waters just 50 steps from your villa. The beach is mostly small pebbles but it’s also part sand, so you can get in and out of the water relatively easy. The protected waters of Klein Bay also provide a safe and scenic area to kayak (kayaks not provided, but can be rented in Cruz Bay). ...moreless

Klein Bay is slowly being developed, but your view from Serenata is as beautiful and unspoiled as it was 30 years ago. Although Cruz Bay is only a 10 minute drive on paved roads, rarely does a tourist ever drive or hike into this lovely, peaceful location.
Year Purchased: 2009
Why Rendezvous & Ditleff (Bethany, Cruz Bay, St. John 00830, USVI):
Our stateside business is building luxury homes and we had dreamed for years about building a vacation home on a beach on St. John, The problem is, the National Park owns most of St John’s beaches, so there’s not much private beachfront property. After too many years of looking, this property came on the market and we jumped for it. This beachfront location really sets Serenata apart from other homes. You’ve got to feel it to understand it, but all your senses are caressed in Serenata. The trade winds blow soft, warm and gentle as they caress your skin. The constant background music of small surf breaking on a pebble beach is a calming melody that caresses your ears. The beauty of sunshine, starlight and moonbeams reflecting on the sea caresses your eyes, while the light fragrance of the sea is so real that you can almost taste it. Every tired, stressed out, recession-weary human should spend a week in this house – it will breath new life and energy into anyone.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
One of the features that sets Serenata apart from other villas is the 400 square foot lanai, with its lovely views and comfortable cushioned furniture. The lanai wins first place honors for “the most enjoyable shaded place to spend an afternoon.” The lanai has a direct line of sight into the pool, so adults can relax nearby but still keep on eye on the kids in the pool. For people who love to be outside but not in the sun, this lanai is one of those “I’m too content to move” spots. You’ll also greatly enjoy: • Swimming and snorkeling in calm, clear, 82-84 degree, turquoise waters just 50 steps from your villa. The beach is mostly small pebbles but it’s also part sand, so you can get in and out of the water relatively easy. The protected waters of Klein Bay also provide a safe and scenic area to kayak (kayaks not provided, but can be rented in Cruz Bay). • A large (30 x 15) pool surrounded by a tiled deck, both of which bask in sunshine all day • A location that provides peace and quiet, serenity, privacy and great natural beauty. • A supremely comfortable interior living room with “sink way into it” furniture and a 42” flat screen TV/DVD, am/fm stereo +CD and Bose speakers plus wireless internet.
