Year Purchased: 2002
About: We’re a family from Connecticut that has been coming to this amazing island for more than twenty years. This is the second home we have built on St. John. The first villa was also on Hart Bay and we fell in love with this wonderful location, so when we built a larger second home it had to be on Hart Bay, and of course it had to have sunrise and sunset views. We were fortunate to find this hilltop location; it’s quite a beautiful spot and we love it and hope that you enjoy as much as we do.
Why Cruz Bay, St. John, USVI:
We love this setting for lots of reasons, but primarily because it has two distinct personalities. The east and south sides of the house overlook Hart Bay and the south coast of St. John. Here the sound of surf breaking on the beach below you is your background music, and the trade winds blowing in from the east are enlivening and refreshing. On the west side of the house the pool and sun deck is much more mellow, with soft breezes, lush tropical gardens and captivating views of west St. John and St. Thomas. Sunrise or sunset, bold view or relaxing view, wind in your face or gentle breeze on your bare skin – we love them both. This is also a location for sun lover's. From your bed you can watch the morning sun rise out of the sea, then bask in its warmth all day by the pool, and later watch it slowly set in a blaze of color. Also, the privacy of this location is excellent. No lost or curious tourist ever finds their way to Le Lapin because if you don’t have directions, you’ll never find us. Despite the wonderful privacy and serenity that surrounds us, we’re less than 10-minutes from great food, bars, and shopping and good times in Cruz Bay.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Although a sunrise/sunset view is not unique to Le Lapin, it certainly is a rarity on St. John that only a few hill top homes enjoy. Almost every morning and evening Mother Nature puts on a dazzling display of color and light, and for the morning show you need only move an eyelid. For the sunset show, the refrigerator is only a few steps away from the western deck. We’re also not the only villa with a solar heated pool that offers exceptional “no tan lines” privacy, but you’ll greatly enjoy both these highlights. The privacy factor is also found inside, as well as outside the house, with each bedroom and bath enjoying excellent privacy. Another rarity that is uniquely St. John is the sense of being far removed from civilization, yet you’re less than 10 minutes from Cruz Bay; it’s a bit of a conundrum but you’ll greatly enjoy it, especially when you’re driving home from Cruz Bay after an evening of top notch food, island drinks and friendly people.
