Resting on a hill overlooking a lush peaceful valley, Salt River Bay, and both north and south shores, is a lovely home, Mountain Breeze. Mountain Breeze is truly a home away from home for it has all the comforts of home set in a tropical paradise - with the added bonus of a large 40 foot lap pool! It is centrally located, so it is easy to get everywhere for water sports, shopping, hiking, exploring the historic sites, and all the beautiful beaches! The open floor plan allows the gentle breezes to flow throughout the house. It is tranquil and delightful; a perfect place to enjoy a cool drink while watching the sunset! On clear days you can see the distant islands of St. Thomas and St. John.
The Main House is a spacious 1600 square foot home with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, vaulted ceilings, and a large great room taking up the entire top floor of the building. This is a true Cruzan home - completely furnished and ready for you to use as your own! The kitchen is fully equipped. The Main House can easily accommodate as many as 6 people. It has 2 master bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a third bedroom, and a third bathroom in the hallway. The gallery is perfect for relaxing, reading, and sharing meals. It overlooks the gorgeous lap pool, pool deck, and valley below. Sit there, or on the pool deck under the palm trees to keep in touch with loved ones via your computer. Or, if you must, do a little work. The wireless internet will give you access even there. Besides the gallery and pool deck, there is a wrap-around porch which extends to the balcony outside Sunrise master bedroom. It can be a perfect place to read, reflect, and observe nature. The hammock under the trees is a favorite spot to take a well deserved snooze!
The professionally landscaped property consists of 1.2 acres. There is a cactus garden, beautiful trees and flowers typical of St. Croix (flamboyant, tamarind, sour sop, frangipani, bougainvillea, and more), and wonderful, delightful (and hungry) hummingbirds and bananaquits. Other birds you may see are egrets, frigate birds, black ani. and doves. Of course, you will see geckos! They are everywhere on the island!
Within the property is a rented cottage and rented downstairs apartment. These local residents all share the grounds, but you would have exclusive use of the pool and patio space. They are friendly people who are happy to discuss their knowledge of St. Croix. All are working professionals with different occupations, so they have an abundance of information about the island.
An added feature of Mountain Breeze is an amateur radio station, NP2N, which is available to licensed amateur radio operators.
