Overview

About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Las Brisas Caribe represents a beautiful blending of classic Caribbean architecture with all the comforts of a luxurious, tastefully furnished modern home. This 4BR / 4.5 BA villa is elegant, refined, and stunning. Any 'top 10' list of St. John's finest villas would certainly include this exquisite St. John ultra-lux home.

Everything about Las Brisas is impressive, including such delightful features as a swimming pool with a gently flowing waterfall, the truly gourmet kitchen, the romantic 'crows nest' sunset gazebo, air conditioning and cable TV/DVD players throughout, abundant and colorful tropical landscaping, and picturesque views from all rooms of the house. If Las Brisas is in your price range, we strongly recommend it for families, couples and romantics, for this magnificent home will please even the most demanding of our clientele.

Maria Bluff, the peninsula between Great Cruz Bay and Chocolate Hole Harbor is home to Las Brisas Caribe. Maria Bluff has always been a quiet area of expensive villas, and with the completion of Las Brisas a new standard of excellence has been set for this upscale neighborhood. The beautiful water views from Las Brisas extend for 180 degrees across the sun splashed sea and include dazzling Caribbean sunsets and the distant twinkling lights of St Thomas and other islands at night. The restaurants, beach, tennis courts and fitness room at the Westin Resort are less than a five minute drive, and the charming boutiques, restaurants and nightlife of Cruz Bay are less than a 10 minute drive on paved roads.

Architectural Design - Las Brisas is a superbly designed and constructed, distinctively furnished home that was completed in 2002. It is built on 4 levels with the pool, stone gazebo, pool deck and a guest bedroom located on the lower level. The kitchen, dining room, living areas, decks and patios and two guest bedrooms are on the main level. The master bedroom and covered balcony is on the third level and the crows nest is on the fourth level.

This handsome design incorporates tiled roofs, beamed cathedral ceilings, private covered verandah supported by 12 foot Doric columns, gorgeous stone walls, tiled floors, and mahogany French doors that open to antique brick patios. Las Brisas is a south facing, sunny home with every room cooled by air conditioning, ceiling fans and gentle breezes. The gazebo and many decks provide plenty of cool shady places to enjoy the views.

Bedrooms with a View - The elegant and romantic theme found throughout Las Brisas is reflected in all four bedrooms. The master bedroom is truly lovely and includes a four-poster hand carved king bed, a complete entertainment center, a desk/workspace, and a divine tiled bath with an antique bathtub and an open air shower. The two guest bedrooms on the main level have four-poster queen beds and the pool level bedroom has two twins that convert to a king. All bedrooms have a feeling of gracious romance and include air conditioning, cable color TV/VCR, stereo/CD systems, walk in closets, attached tiled baths with open air showers and French doors that open to furnished private decks with sunset views.

Why Richard Matheny chose Cruz Bay

Maria Bluff, in Great Cruz Bay, is one of St. John's most prestigious and beautiful neighborhoods. It is only 5 minutes from the Westin Resort spa, beach bar, and restaurants; 10 minutes from

Cruz Bay shops and restaurants; and 15 minutes from the breathtaking North Shore beaches.

What makes this villa unique

Las Brisas Caribe is a magnificent Caribbean Villa. The elegance and attention to detail that the owners provide is wonderful. The peace, tranquility, and privacy of the pool is very relaxing. Cooking in the first class chef's kitchen is a delight. And the views from the Crow's Nest - anytime of day - are spectacular, especially with a tropical drink in hand! Welcome & enjoy!!

Better Than The Pictures

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and two other couples escaped an East coast blizzard to spend a magical 10 days at las Brisis Caribe. The villa is stunning. Pictures do not do it justice. Built of stucco and stone, the villa is beautifully designed with many architectural details. Each of our bedrooms was in a separate building so there was plenty of privacy. Each couple had their own covered balcony with a ceiling fan and comfortable seating.

We enjoyed preparing meals on the Viking stove in the large fully equipped kitchen; even the pot and pans were top quality.The climate is perfect for outdoor dining so though the dining room is lovely, we ate most of our meals at the round table on the veranda.

The villa is ideally sited to take advantage of the gentle ocean breeze. And how to choose where to relax and enjoy the matchless weather? We had our choice of the cushioned chairs on the covered veranda, the fully adjustable lounge chairs beside the pool, or the 3rd story crows nest which is the perfect spot to watch the sun set over the water.

The villa was immaculate. The landscaping and the pool are beautiful. The beds are comfortable and we had an ample supply of towels. The outdoor showers are a delight. There are beach towels, beach chairs, and coolers to take on expeditions to the beach.

The villa surpassed our expectations in every way. We could not have been happier.

A Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful vacation with friends and family at Las Brisas Caribe in mid-January. The villa is spacious and beautifully laid out - a great spot to enjoy Caribbean days and nights. During the day we visited the lovely beaches, sailed, snorkeled and explored the island. Then we came back to our luxurious accomodations. We swam in the pool and had 'happy hours' in the Crow's Nest looking out on Cruz Bay at the magnificent sunsets. We cooked dinner on the grill or went to one of the many first-rate restaurants on the island. We called it 'paradise'...a super week.

Beware--Construction Site and Bad Smells

  • 1 of 5

We just stayed here and you should be forewarned that there is a huge house immediately in front of the villa that is under construction and the work starts at 6:30 am and goes all day long including Saturday--you can't sleep in and forget the afternoon nap. Also, the house smells terrible --like a combination of raw sewage and moth balls.

Owner's Response: We are Tom and Cheryl , the owners of Las Brisas Caribe. We appreciate your feedback and are sorry that your experience at our villa did not meet your expectations. In conjunction with Suite St. John (our rental agency), we have been renting Las Brisas Caribe for over 10 years, serving hundreds of guests, and striving to provide them with the best possible St. John experience in a comfortable, well-maintained luxury villa. We, too, do not enjoy the construction across the street, but we recognize that our Maria Bluff neighborhood is very desirable for other luxury homes and that the construction of those homes is beyond our control. We and many of our returning guests deal with the noise by going to the beautiful beaches or enjoying other St. John activities during construction hours, and returning for the quiet sunsets from the Crow's Nest and dinners under the stars on the veranda. We also take great care of and perform meticulous and proactive maintenance on our villa, with bi-annual maintenance on the A/C and septic systems and weekly landscaping and site inspections. In fact, all our systems passed inspection with flying colors just four weeks prior to your visit. Upon receipt of your comments, we had our on-island manager and house systems manager reinspect the property for any issues, and this week the owner of Suite St. John will also inspect the property. And to be honest, in all our weeks of staying at Las Brisas Caribe over 10 years of ownership, we have never had your experiences. We and Suite St. John are serious about excellent and responsive customer service and maintaining Las Brisas Caribe as one of the premier villas on St. John. We invite you to contact us through Suite St. John to discuss your concerns and how we address them. Sincerely, Tom and Cheryl
