Description

Mosaic Sunset, Cruz Views #3, is a center unit that sits over the pool of the facility. This unit commands the BEST and most sweeping views of the complex, the harbor below, and distant islands beyond. The quaint, yet cozy deck offers ultimate privacy and security, whether it be for early morning coffee or late night cocktails. The comfortable wicker rockers are the perfect perch for viewing magical late afternoon sunsets or watching the romantic allure of twinkling far off island lights at night.

Mosaic Sunset has been completely remodeled with a beautiful brand new kitchen, complete with all new appliances, a new peninsula bar with stools, all new furniture and amenities. Bright colors and artwork adorn the Master bedroom that overlooks the Great Room through tropical Caribbean shutters. The Master has beautiful Tahitian island furnishings, a new queen Sealy Marriott Euro-Plush firm bed, A/C unit which cools not only the bedroom, but the Great room as well, and a 32” smart HD TV with cable & DVD.

The 2nd bedroom is accessed by a ship’s ladder, which the kids simply love as they imagine pirate days gone by. It is tastefully, but whimsically appointed. It, too, is furnished with 2 XL Twin Sealy Marriott Euro-Plush firm beds, TV, DVD and has its own A/C unit. Views from the “crow’s nest” are spectacular! The Great Room has a queen sleeper sofa (sleeps 2) and provides a comfy spot to catch a late night movie or a favorite game on the new 50” smart LED HD TV, also equipped with cable and WiFi.

The stairway from the Great Room leads up to the private quarters and the amazing original Caribbean style bathroom. Smooth sea-polished Caribbean stones soothe your feet as you enjoy a refreshing shower, perhaps while you prepare for a night out. And more, you are surrounded by incredible artwork of the Mosaic Sunset, created by a famous local artisan of St. John.

Put your fresh catch on the grill or cook in for that special island style dinner as you enjoy a quiet evening on the deck, around the pool or just at home after a long, relaxing day at the beach.

You are sure to have a fun, comfortable and relaxing stay at Mosaic Sunset.

        Location

        Cruz Views is tucked into a tropical hillside 160 feet above the town of Cruz Bay. The units all face southwest to capture lots of sun and picturesque views of turquoise seas by day, memorable sunsets at days end, and the twinkling lights of distant islands at night. It’s an easy walk into Cruz Bay (downhill) but the walk back to Cruz Views is a bit more challenging, especially if you have enjoyed a few of the island’s infamous rum punches.
