Built in 2014. Free Wifi thru-out villa, private pool, pool deck, grand lanai and verandas. Beautiful new built-in BBQ unit and countertops. When you arrive at Villa Joie De Vivre, you will experience a real “joy of living” that rejuvenates your senses and well-being. Drink it all in - the expansive down island views, deep blue Atlantic Ocean hues, the sound of waves washing up against our Peterborg peninsula, or breathing in the sweet, soft and virgin ocean air - you will truly feel at home. A typical morning will find you sipping coffee out on the grand lanai in shade and cool comfort with summer sun heat only a few feet away. You will smile and relax a lot as you view sensational island and ocean vistas of unique panoramic beauty. You may pleasantly observe the total absence of passing cars or traffic noise while relaxing to sounds of lazy ocean movements, fresh breezes and the brown pelicans, native parrots, morning doves, hummingbirds and other sea birds that frequently fly close by your treasured perch. Later, you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool and sunbathe on a lounge chair on the large pool deck.
