- Caribbean Villas Comments:
From a distance, this very handsome stone and antique brick plantation style home looks like it might have been built in the 19th century, when this land was used to grow the sugar cane that became the rum that (along with a few pirates) made these islands infamous. However, this classic estate home was completed in 2005 and underneath its stone exterior is a thoroughly modern, elegant and very tasteful interior.
This is undeniably a spacious, luxurious and beautifully furnished home, but the feature that really sets this house apart is its location. Unlike other luxury villas, the Francis Bay Estate house does not have villas on adjacent lots or anywhere in your view, with the exception of one house on St. John and 15 miles away on St. Thomas. At night, and even at times during the day, you might get the feeling that you are alone on an island in 1950, or even 1850. This is privacy in one of its purest forms on St. John, for the National Park landscape that surrounds you remains pristine and undisturbed.
It looks and feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, but this (sort of) beach house is an easy walk to Francis Bay beach, and also close to the beach at Maho Bay. For families with beach loving kids, couples or wedding parties, this is a unique choice in island homes.
A bold, beautiful and thoroughly elegant home, and one of the most private, naturalist settings in the Virgin Islands qualifies the Francis Bay Estate house as one of St Johns Ultra Luxury Villas. If you desire a more modest home at a more modest price, one of Francis Bays unseen neighbors is the 4-bedroom villa Serenity.
