About the property

Very Private & Romantic, Excellent Views, Pool, A/C, Affordable Price

Aria is one of four villas in a small gated neighborhood located on the south facing side of one of the mountains that towers over Coral Bay. The views are beautiful and include sweeping vistas of turquoise seas, blazing sunrises, the British Virgin Islands, Coral Bay, and Bordeaux Mountain. A privacy gate and an oversized lot insure that Aria maintains a peaceful and very romantic character. Although Aria is an ultra private villa, it is not secluded, for the warm waters and white sands of the National Park beaches at Maho Bay and Francis Bay are only a 5-minute drive. Coral Bay restaurants and bars are a 5 – 10 minute drive, and the delightful nightlife and shopping in Cruz Bay are a 15- 20-minute drive.

Aria is an environmentally sensitive home that was designed and built to be very much in harmony with its peaceful, ultra private natural surroundings. In keeping with its environmental awareness character, Aria’s pool has no chemicals but is instead kept sparkling clean by a pool ionization process. The villa is built on two levels, with the living, dining and kitchen areas, plus a deck on the upper level, and with the pool, and sundeck on the lower level.

The two master bedrooms are on different levels of the house to insure maximum privacy. Both bedrooms are similar in size and furnishings and both have king beds, air conditioning and tiled baths. Screened sliding glass doors on both bedrooms offer lovely views, and both bedrooms open to a deck. The lower bedroom is accessed by exterior stairs and also contains a small refrigerator and a telephone

The serene, natural and very private setting of Aria is just as private now as it was in 1997 when this villa was built. Aria’s standout features include the following:

• Aria is small but has it all; pool, a/c, TV and DVD, wireless internet and spectacular views;

• Aria’s natural environment has been carefully preserved, thus giving Aria superb privacy and the feel of a serene tropical hideaway.

• This is a perfect villa for anyone wanting a full body (no tan lines) tan. You don’t see any people, and no people can see you;

• The cozy interior and the peaceful, tranquil location make this villa an ideal romantic hideaway for one or two couples;

• Aria is also perfect for a small family that wants a villa with everything, but at an affordable price;

• Although Aria is unusually private, it is also centrally located and convenient to Coral Bay, north shore beaches and Cruz Bay.

Good and bad.

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed in this house twice, once in 2015 and once in 2016, both for 7 days. On the good side, it's a very quiet location with a killer view of Coral Bay. The pool is nice as well. The kitchen is barely adequately equipped. On the bad side, the furniture leaves a lot to be desired. Trying to find a comfortable way to sit in the living room is a challenge as there are no sofas or easy chairs, just a few upholstered dining room chairs and a day bed, for which we could find no use at all. We ended up dragging the patio furniture inside! Also, the master bed room has no ( as in zero) clothes bureaus or chests, so we had to keep a lot of our clothes in our suitcases. Finally, the downstairs bedroom is perfectly usable for anything other than sleeping. There's some kind of noisy pump next to it which seems to come on at all hours of the day and night. This belongs in an outbuilding. The very basic nature of the furnishings however are not reflected in the price, which is on a par with much more well equipped and comfortable houses very close by. Folks, invest a few bucks in living room furniture.

Owner's Response: Carl, thank you for sharing your experience. With your kind feedback, we are happy to share that we do have new furniture on the way! We hope it arrives as soon as possible, but as you know, "island time" is a very true motto for the virgin islands! In regards to your comment regarding the kitchen appliances, the stove is brand new and we do our best to make sure everything runs the way it should as well as fully stocked with cooking essentials. If there was anything in particular that was missing, please call or email us. We will have our island manager do a walk through to ensure there is adequate appliances and cookware in the meantime. As for the noise, this was addressed at the time of your review and the problem was resolved. Thank you, again, for sharing your feedback!

Great location and privacy!! Perfect spot for 2!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary! We were looking for a home with a pool and hot tub and this fit the bill perfectly! We were a bit hesitant with the living room furniture when we saw it on line but the day bed is quite comfortable. I would change the chairs out for something more inviting, but I guess as a vacation home, it works. This isn't a fancy home but if you are looking for a well kept property at a good value, this would be a great choice! My husband and I loved the views and the breezes were amazing! We weren't quite sure what to expect for August and were pleasantly surprised. This location is a short drive to Maho bay.... my friends recommended this beach as being one of their favorite and they were right, gorgeous!! We will return!
