Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, Garden Pool, A/C, Sunset and Harbor Views

Jasmine was built about 120 feet up the tropical hill that overlooks the beach and harbor at Great Cruz Bay. The house is nestled into a hillside garden that includes bougainvillea, hibiscus, jasmine, periwinkle and other continuously blooming tropical flowers. The gorgeous 180 degree view sweeps over Great Cruz Bay and the Caribbean to a necklace of distant Virgin Islands that include the St James Islands and a slice of St. Thomas. Jasmine faces south and west so it gets plenty of sun, and gorgeous sunsets in the early evening, and at night island lights sparkle in the distance. Jasmine is ultra convenient, being less than a 5-minute drive to the restaurants, bars, groceries and shopping in the delightful town of Cruz Bay. You should rent a jeep, but because you’re only a 5-8 minute walk down to the four star Westin Resort, with restaurants, beach bar and a taxi stand, this is one of the few villas where you could get by without a jeep.

This is an intimate 2-level, 2+-bedroom, 2 bath home with central a/c (in the upper level only) and a pool set in a tropical garden. You park on the upper level and enter into the great room with the living, dining and kitchen areas. The great room opens to a sun deck, and both have lovely views. The pool and pool deck are on the lower level, surrounded by tropical gardens.

The 3 bedrooms are all on different levels. The master bedroom/bath (king bed) is off the great room and the guest bedroom/bath with a/c (2 twins) is on the pool level and is accessed by exterior stairs. The loft third bedroom is accessible by interior stairs and contains two twin beds.

In the great room a bar/countertop separates the kitchen from the living room.

The living room contains honey rattan furniture that is accented by colorful rugs, lamps and artwork. The entertainment system includes a 32” flat screen cable TV with DVD and an AM/FM stereo with CD and iPod capability. You can dine inside in your cozy dining room at a table for 4-6, or dine outside on the deck at a table also seating 4-6.

The kitchen is well equipped with a 4-burner electric stove, GE refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, blender, toaster and coffeemaker, cookware, server ware, utensils and attractive dinnerware for 6. Also included are a washer/dryer, telephone, Webber BBQ grill and an iron and ironing

About Owner/Property Manager

Jasmine is one of four villas that we own in Great Cruz Bay, all with 1-2 bedrooms. The four homes are all neighbors but there’s hillside land and tropical vegetation between them, so they’re mostly hidden from each other’s views. We had planned on buying one home with 4-5 bedrooms, but we noticed that most of the 1-2 bedroom villas in Great Cruz Bay have vanished and have been replaced by 3-5 bedroom homes. So instead of buying one large house, we bought four smaller homes. Jasmine is one of the most private of the four villas and it also has a unique floor plan with 3 bedrooms located on three different levels, giving Jasmine the preferred bedroom privacy of a much larger villa.

For additional questions on our beautiful home please call our representatives at Caribbean Villas of St John. Their sales office is located in the states and if you would like to speak with a "live" person (M-F, 9-5 EST), give them a call! They are ready to answer your questions and make your reservation. 800 338-0987 and 207 510-6300. Once you arrive on St John, their local office staff will meet you and will be your on island hosts. "You've got friends on the island," who are ready to assist you in any way they can!

Owner/Property Manager purchased this villa in 2003

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Cruz Bay

We especially love Jasmine for its great views and the pool and deck that are neatly carved into a hillside garden. All four homes have lovely views of spectacular Caribbean sunsets, boats floating in the harbor and islands on the horizon, but we think Jasmine’s view is a little lovelier, although guests at Hawksbill, Rosebay or Periwinkle might disagree. The comments we made for Hawksbill re Cruz Bay are also true for Jasmine. We’re big fans of Cruz Bay. It’s a small Caribbean village that has a warmth, friendliness and fun personality like no other place we’ve traveled; it’s always just so delightful. The Caribbean music and liveliness is the essence of the welcoming and fun loving Caribbean spirit. So we really wanted to be located close to Cruz Bay, without actually being in the town itself. Instead we’re about 5 minutes away on a quiet hillside overlooking a much quieter and more tranquil harbor – it’s the best of both worlds

What makes this villa unique

As we’ve mentioned, there is one thing that certainly makes Jasmine unique. Jasmine is one of a family of four villas, all within an easy walk but all pretty much concealed from view from the others. For couples and families you can have togetherness when you want it, and privacy when you need it. Jasmine’s pool is also certainly unique, located in a hillside setting surrounded by flowering plants and palm trees. Although one and two bedroom villas are not unique in this preferred neighborhood of premium villas, they certainly are becoming quite scarce. As we said for Hawksbill, with the harbor views, sunsets, privacy, convenience and affordability, this is a pretty neat package.

Perfect St. John Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had an outstanding time. The villas are great--old time St. John but with just the right amount of amenities. Your staff are very professional and efficient. We had a couple of little house problems, and Brian was just terrific. Maggie is a great housekeeper; everything was spotless.

The views aren't bad either!

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Jasmine was completely satisfactory. We enjoyed everything about it. The private pool was a nice amenity. The a/c cooled the rooms quickly, after having them turned off while away from the villa.The efforts to conserve the water and electricity costs was of no consequence. Its a very nice place. So nice in fact, that we are considering it for a future trip back!

Jasmine was the perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in November. The weather was great and the house is perched just right for good sunsets, great views, nice tropical breezes. The house was very cozy, a great set up for a group of friends or family. The kitchen had everything I needed when we cooked at home. All the appliances worked and the A/C was also more than adequate for the afternoons.

There were plenty of towels for the bath & the beach. Extra sheets & blankets too. The pool was a great plus! Nicely sized for a group of people.

If you have more than 6 people check out their other property Hawksbill. It is about 20 paces away from Jasmine, close enough that you would feel you were still together. We had a group stating there and it made the vacation just a little better!

Close to the food store, the Westin, and town it's a great place to stay, which we will be again next year!

Perfect summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Jasmine last July with my family. It was the perfect set up for us! We so enjoyed the convenient location to Cruz Bay! A grocery store is right down the road - St John Market so if we forgot something it was a quick drive to go get it. Our favorite beach was Hawksnest - about an 8 minute drive from the villa - next favorite was Francis Bay beach - about a 15 -18 minute drive - depending on if you get behind a taxi! I was looking for a more economical villa and this met our needs perfectly - well appointed kitchen, beautiful views, pool and this home had central a/c - which came in very handy - when we would get back from the beach, we would turn the a/c on - cool the house down and then turn it off - and open all the sliders to enjoy the warm, yet cooling tradewinds. Perfect! Loved the outdoor deck off the living room - we ate many a meals there - and the pool was an added bonus! The main bedroom has a king bed and then the 2nd bedroom is outside access off the pool area - the 2nd bedroom is a bit basic but my kids (14-17) thought it was great - they had their own space and bathroom! I was a bit concerned in the beginning about the outside access bedroom - but it worked fine for our family. This isn't a fancy house but you are looking for a comfortable and affordable option - stay here! I recommend it and plan on returning!!
