Property description

Splash is located in a waterfront/beachfront setting on the tranquil, sparkling waters of Great Cruz Bay Harbor. The views from Splash are lovely, with sailboats floating peacefully on the palm-fringed bay in the foreground, and Pillsbury Sound, St. Thomas and blazing sunsets in the background. It's a short drive (5 minutes) to the restaurants and boutiques of Cruz Bay, and it’s also a short walk (5 minutes) to the restaurants, beach, fitness facilities and shops at the Westin Resort. Despite being near the Westin, Splash enjoys a quiet and peaceful setting, seemingly far removed from its neighbors. For those who love to be close by or in the Caribbean, Splash will delight.

Splash began as a fun loving beach house and was remodeled to become a more refined harborside villa with floor to ceiling stone walls, wide board mahogany floors, skylights, antique and custom built furniture, exterior gardens, and an interior pool. This is essentially a one level home, with the crow’s nest bedroom being the only room on the upper level. The great room contains the living and dining rooms, plus the kitchen and pool. The master bedroom and the guest bedroom are located on opposite ends of the great room and offer excellent privacy. There is a small bedroom with a bunk bed, which is great for children. The 4th crow's nest bedroom is outside access and is a charming, screened in bedroom, great for older teens.

Splash has three distinct deck/patios plus a small beach area. The main deck is located off the great room and has exquisite views, cushioned furniture and dining for 6. A half level below the main deck is a private patio under tall palm trees with an outdoor shower, a hammock and a table for 4. The sun patio is also a half level below the great room and consists of sand, lounge chairs, sunshine, and a tiki bar. The waters of the Caribbean are a half level below the patios, accessed by stairs that descend from a cut in the stone wall.

• A great villa for families with kids, especially kids who love to play in the water.

• The warm, exceptionally romantic ambiance of this villa also makes it one of our top recommendations for honeymooners and lovers. It’s a memory maker.

• A vacation home that has it all; a waterfront location, pool, a/c in 3 bedrooms, comfortable furnishings, lush landscaping, moderate privacy, sunsets and picture postcard views.

• You’re so close to the Caribbean that it’s almost like being on a boat, and the nautical sights and sounds of this quite harbor are wonderful.

• A superb location, 5 minutes from Cruz Bay and 10 seconds from swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding (snorkeling equipment, kayak's and paddle boards not included) in the tranquil, 82 degree Caribbean waters.

• Boaters have access to the deep water anchorages of Great Cruz Bay, allowing you to add boating activities to your agenda.

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Having traveled thru these beautiful azure blue seas for over 30 years now, I consider myself to be indeed a Pirate of the Caribbean and my heart definitely belongs to St.John... Yes all the other islands are beautiful as well but how do you describe St. John to someone who has never been here? St. John is God's canvas, 'undescribable breathtaking beauty, the emerald jewel of the Caribbean sea! All of these words have been spoken many times over...Just read any travel guide and you'll see St. John is at or near the top of their bucket list! But for those of us fortunate enough to be able to visit here often or even own a small piece of the island, we realize St. John is well beyond physical beauty, it has a rhythm that's all it's own...It's 'pulsating' rhythm captures the beat of it's roots, history, people, culture and it has an overall 'VIBE' that ties your heartstrings in knots so you can't let go...This island's very essence is intoxicating and draws you back time and time again... By fate and luck my career brought me to the Caribbean in the first place. Owning a large promotion agency out of Tampa, FL and having Joseph E. Seagram as an account, my task at hand at the time was to launch an unknown brand called Captain Morgan Spiced Rum throughout the USA, Caribbean and Europe! What opportunity and fun it was to be able to tell the tales of the real Captain Henry Morgan , share his rum with adult landlubbers and offer on a silver platter the fantasy to even snowbirds in 30 below temperatures in rural America the chance to sail the high seas...People couldn't get enough!!! So after 16 years, 65,000 promotions and events worldwide and a treasure chest full of over $2,000,000 in gold and silver doubloons, my crew and I set sail to St. John , bought Villa Splash and havn't looked back since..., 'A Dream Becomes Reality!' June 2005

Why Cruz Bay, St. John, USVI:
This area of St.John still gives you the sense of living on a tropical island, yet offers all the amenities, necessities and the comforts of home! You are literally 5-10 minutes from everything but you still feel ike your on vacation without a care in the world...

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Where do I begin, because the list of unique benefits is endless... Villa Splash captures the 'essence' of a wonderful Caribbean vacation and is indeed 'A MEMORY MAKER...' Whether you want the 'hustle and bustle' of the island's tourist attractions, 'fun and sun watersports,' or want the peace, solitude and tranquility of a lazy afternoon nap in the crowsnest or a good book in the backyard hammock splash offers something special for everybody... Many people have stayed at Splash thru the years and everyone agrees it's benefits and beauty are unsupassed! Some people have even booked splash 4-6 times! Oh by the way a little trivia for you to share...Villa Splash was originally named after a very friendly female bottle nosed dolphin who frequently swims our harbor looking for handouts of the 'CATCH OF THE DAY' from the local fishermen! Be sure to be on the lookout as she is not camera shy and she makes for a great photo opportunity! Yes, my fellow castaways, does life get any better than the 'lure' of the Caribbean Sea, droping anchor at Villa Splash, a pina colada at your own backyard tiki bar made with Captain Morgan Spiced Rum? I don't think so, why go anywhere else you're already in 'paradise', living the DREAM... 'IT'S A PIRATES LIFE FOR ME,' 'Arrgh,' Barb Baker/Owner
