About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 And A Half Baths With Fantastic Water Views, Hot Tub

Prior to 2015 Lost in the Sun had never been rented. A new owner who is also an interior designer purchased the house in 2014 and the entire villa was completely remodeled, refurnished and accessorized before being placed on the rental market in January of 2015. This villa now exudes a genuine sense of comfort, hominess and style that makes it ideal for island vacations.

The house sits on an over sized 1.2-acre waterfront lot, with a well-maintained path down to the water. In addition to offering more privacy this site is very peaceful and quiet – there is no noise from passing cars or trucks, no noise at all except the sounds of trade winds wafting through the house and small surf breaking on the shore below you.

Lost in the Sun enjoys a terrific waterfront location in Hart Bay, which is a small bay on the sunny south shore of St John. The is a small beach on Hart Bay and the Bay offers some interesting snorkeling when the surf is not running large. Hart Bay is one bay south of Chocolate Hole and it's an easy 3-mile drive from the ferry dock in Cruz Bay. The house offers splendid views that overlook Hart Bay and the south coast of St. John, including large swaths of the National Park. This is a very quiet and semi private setting where the only sounds are the music of surf breaking on the shore below you. It's about a 2 mile drive to the Dolphin Market for groceries, and less than 2-miles to the restaurants and spa at the Westin Resort.

Lost in the Sun is a 2-level design in which the great room (living, dining, kitchen) and the master bedroom are on the upper level along with a seaside deck and hot tub, plus the garden courtyard on the back side of the house. Like its name implies, Lost in the Sun is a villa for those who enjoy the warmth of the sun, for it floods one of your decks from early morning to late afternoon. You park above the house and walk down a half level to enter the great room with its polished marble floors, vaulted ceiling, elegant woodwork, outstanding views, rich accessories and lovely atmosphere. The living area, which is tucked into the left side of the great room far away from the master bedroom, is centered on a 50” flat screen TV/DVD and is an especially cozy and comfortable seating area with a stunning water view.

The kitchen is located along the back wall and is separated from the dining area by a 4-person bar and counter. It includes a 4-burner gas stove and oven, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, toaster, blender, coffeemaker plus an abundance of dinnerware, cookware and cooking utensils, plus plenty of glasses and china for entertaining if the need arises. A washer/dryer is located in a laundry room off the kitchen.

All three bedrooms are cooled by the wind off the water plus a/c if you desire, and all have water views and an adjoining bath. The master bedroom is off the great room and has a queen 4-poster mahogany bed, tiled floor, 32” flat screen TV/DVD and ample closet space. It opens to unforgettable views and the upper deck through sliding glass doors.

The queen and king bedrooms on the lower deck are accessed by exterior stairs and each bedroom has a 30” flat screen TV/DVD. The two lower bedrooms open to a sundeck with seating for four, plus recliners and a hammock. All three bedrooms have lovely pillow views of Hart Bay.

The 4 person hot tub is located on the south side of the villa in a natural setting that is private and romantic. Below the villa a short path takes you to Hart Bay Beach where you can experience some interesting snorkeling on a calm day. Lost in the Sun is a gated villa and abundant tropical landscaping surrounds the house and the hot tub.

A few of the best features of Lost in the Sun include the following:

• Although this is a moderately sized villa, it offers more exterior living and dining spaces than many large homes. If you want a private place in the sun, you have multiple choices: 1) at the small beach below you, 2) the lower sea deck, 3) the upper sea deck, 4) the hot tub deck, 5) the west porch, and 6) the wind sheltered garden courtyard.

• The 4 person hot tub is located off to the side of the villa in a very private and romantic location with especially enchanting views of the moonlit bay

• The versatile floor plan is excellent for one couple, very comfortable for 2 couples and quite suitable for a family with 3-4 children. Every room has a lovely water view and the interior and exterior of the villa are a blend of coziness and elegance that you will find quite pleasing.

Open house with a great view

  • 4 of 5

we loved the house. great views and liked being able to open the windows and let the breeze in. The house only has air conditioners in the bedrooms but they suffice. Loved the flowers and paths and all of the gardening. Victor was great and the house is well maintained. Loved the birds and iguanas. This style of house (being open) is very typical of the islands. The walls of stone with shells were beautiful. Couldn't get the wife out of the outdoor shower.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving such a wonderful review! We enjoy sharing our beautiful and peaceful spot with others. Our goal is to provide a comfortable home away from home. We love the privacy Lost in the Sun provides yet it is still a close drive in to town Cruz Bay. We hope to see you again in the future!

A wonderful home for fun in the sun to relax and enjoy the sound of the ocean and it's breeze!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in St John driving from St. Thomas. We rented a jeep there and it worked out better then renting on St John. Victor met us at the boat ramp and brought us to the house which was a nice start. As we drive into the driveway the overlook was just breathtaking! We where shown the house and grounds. The house was clean and ready for our stay with even a few nice complimentary items to welcome us. A beautiful backyard with a trail down to the water. Only 7 minutes to Cruz bay was nice to have a little distance as apposed to another location we where glad to have passed up. Clean linens,soaps and other items available at the house. Would be very accommodating with 2 other guest with private rooms away from main living spaces. The photos don't do the location justice. We look forward to staying in St John again and if not on a boat this location is a must! Thanks so much for everything it was great! Only suggestions would be to have hot tub worked on (needs second pump working and controllers) and a couple kayaks but that's probabably pushing loved the place and thanks so much!
