Property description

Enjoy sweeping views over the Caribbean east to Norman Island and beyond at ‘Alice by the Sea’, a modern, well appointed four bedroom/four bath pool villa overlooking Friis Bay in the Coral Bay area of St John. Just a few minutes drive to either the town of Coral Bay (shopping/dining) or several beautiful national park beaches and trails and 15 minutes from St John’s world renown North Shore beaches, Alice by the Sea’s location provides convenient access to all of what makes St John special. Please call 914-523-1390 to confirm availability!

The paved driveway leads to custom tiled threshold. The front door opens to the Great Room which includes a dining area with seating for 8, a comfortable living room and a separate media area (dish tv/roku/bose sound dock) as well as a brand new gourmet kitchen with custom Cuban encaustic tile floor, granite counters, island seating area, wine fridge, stainless steel appliances, Wolf gas cooktop and Wolf steam convection oven (perfect for preparing fresh fish!). The well appointed ‘cooks kitchen’ will ensure that you have the right tool for the job should you decide to ‘eat in’ rather than enjoy some of the wonderful island restaurants. Feel like dining ‘al fresco’? The outdoor kitchen located on the pool deck has everything you need for a perfect meal—large BeefEater BBQ, side burner, sink, fridge and icemaker—plus an out door dining and lounge area for entertaining. Outside of the great room is a large deck overlooking the pool and the ocean with comfortable seating – a great place for a cocktail or morning coffee. The usually steady ocean breezes mean mosquitos are rarely a problem here. If you are lucky enough to be here on a Sunday ‘in season’ take a short stroll down to Miss Lucy’s for their famous jazz brunch or if you are here during a full moon, their full moon party—or simply stay on the deck and listen to the music from there!

All four equal size bedrooms have AC, en-suite baths, private decks with seating areas and large closets with ample shelving and hanging space for your belongings. Two upper bedrooms are accessed via closed breezeways from either side of the great room. making it a perfect spot for parents with younger children. The two lower, pool level rooms are accessed via outdoor stairways from each breezeway. Bedrooms are arranged with a queen suite both upstairs and down and two XL twin (convertible to king) suites (one up and one down) – the bedroom set up insures privacy for all. Each room has a unique feel.
Broadband WiFi and a landline ensure you can stay connected if you need to. Games for all ages are available– including St John’s own version of monopoly (St Johnopoly!) for evenings or should rain be in the forecast. Access to the pool is gated for family safety.

The north side ‘edible garden’ contains macadamia nut, avocado, red papaya, pineapple, starfruit, cherry, and citrus trees—bananas and soursop are also on the property –lovely flowering plants and palms line the drive.

Enjoy your days with hiking and snorkeling the many national park trails and reefs, boating or exploring some of the many colonial ruins, take in a morning yoga class at nearby Concordia Eco-resort (or arrange for a class at ‘home’ ) or, simply lie by the pool! No matter what your choice, Alice by the Sea will relax and rejuvenate!
