On a Clear Day …” is designed as an eco-friendly villa built for fun, families, flexibility, nature, health, and, finally and most importantly, life renewal. Your stay will rest the soul, invigorate the body, and restore the spirit.

As you enter the villa through massive double-doors, you will be engulfed by a picturesque all-encompassing view of Francis Bay. Walking further through 14 foot opening sliders will transport you to an expansive pool patio that, again, provides tremendous views of the Bay from every corner and lounge chair.

The villa’s rooms are all located within one structure for family and friendly living, but, through quality construction and design, privacy and quiet are maintained. For the athletically inclined, an exercise room is offered, and the saltwater, low chemical pool incorporates in its design a 54 foot long lap lane. After 8 wide steps up to a ramp leading to the front door and 5 short steps down from the entryway, the entire first floor remains flat, especially helpful for physically challenged guests. This includes the Great Room, kitchen, dining areas, porch, one bedroom, an exercise room, and the outdoor deck and pool. For sun worshippers, there is plenty of room poolside for fantastic tanning. But for those desiring various degrees of sun protection, the villa’s deck also offers a completely covered but still open area along with a portion topped by trellis. And for nighttime outdoor lounging and eating free of insects, a screened-in porch with sliders abuts the dining room.

For those interested in learning more about Green Energy Conservation, On a Clear Day… is one of only two rental villas on the island to earn Island Green Living Association’s 5 Star Tropical Green Building Certification. The house utilizes low solar gain, low-E glass throughout together with LED and CFL lighting, Energy Star Appliances and TVs, low flow Moen WaterSense plumbing fixtures, Toto dual flush toilets, individually controlled Mitsubishi high SEER-rated ductless air-conditioning units, solar heated domestic hot water, and a solar reflective Kynar painted metal roof sitting over a thermal reflective blanket and fiberboard insulation. The entire villa is powered by ground-mounted photovoltaic arrays situated on land just below the structure. Temporary loss of electricity to the villa due to St. John utility power outage is remedied by a large generator on premises. Continuing in the Green vein, On a Clear Day… utilizes organic-based fertilizer for its landscaping and the mildest forms of insecticide for pest control.

    • Caribbean Villas Comments:

      Caribbean Villas’ Comments. This beautiful, new villa is a contender for St John’s “most lovely and well-preserved location” award, and the house is ideally designed to fit in this Zen-like setting. Here are just a few highlights;

      The Villa. New in 2012, spacious, high end, very comfortable and well equipped, private, lovely, and thoughtfully built for stress free vacations.

      Location. This has to be one of the most unspoiled, naturalist settings in the Virgin Islands. You’re a short distance from the beautiful beaches at Francis Bay and surrounded by the National Park with no abutting neighbors. You’re also close to the scenic beach at Maho Bay, National Park hiking trails, and the ruins at Annaberg Plantation. This is a special place where the tranquility, peacefulness and privacy are exceptional.

      Views and Sunsets. The west facing orientation provides all day sun on your totally private pool and sundeck. You overlook sailboats floating on Francis Bay in the foreground, sunsets in the early evening and the distant twinkling lights of St. Thomas at night. Except for one other home visible in the distance, your view remains pristine and unspoiled.

      Atmosphere. The atmosphere is, in two words - ultra peaceful and relaxing. You might think you’re on a Caribbean island in 1950, or even 1850, but you’re actually ensconced in a modern luxury home with all the amenities. This is tranquility in one of its purest forms.
      Spa?This villa could be a small, luxury fitness spa, with its 57 foot long lap pool and big sundeck, hiking trails and swimming and snorkeling nearby, and one of the island’s best fitness rooms, with a/c, TV, music and high quality machines and equipment. But it’s not a spa; it’s your vacation home.

      If On a Clear Day is unavailable, there is one other elegant 5-bedroom home in Francis Bay, Francis Bay Estates. If you desire a more modest 4-bedroom home at a more modest price, look at Villa Serenity, or for a romantic and affordable 1-bedroom, you’ll love the Honeymoon Cottage.

      For a first person account of the good life at On a Clear Day, speak to Kris or Dolores in our office, in Nov, 2012, the owner was kind enough to suggest that they spend some time at his St John home, so they know this villa very well.
