- 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.
