Le Lapin II

Hart Bay

  • Le Lapin sits on a ridgeline with lower and upper level decks that face north, south, east and west

  • Come let Le Lapin become your home away from home. This beautiful villa has views of Hart Bay to the south and St Thomas to the west.

  • By day, enjoy your morning cup of coffee while looking east down the sunny southern coast of St. John to beautiful sunrises & beyond

  • And in the evening, sit back and watch the ever changing skyline as the sun sets at the end of the day. This is just another beautiful view you will have when you stay at Le Lapin!

  • You will enjoy the west facing views while you relax in the sun and swim in your private pool

  • And in the evenings, you will enjoy looking out over your pool at the twinkling lights from St Thomas.

  • Your colorful and welcoming living room. Once you open the screened slider, you will enjoy listening to the sounds of the surf from Hart Bay

  • Your great room has an open floor plan and is a wonderful spot to enjoy time together!

  • The view from the deck off the living room is majestic

  • Imagine yourself enjoying your breakfast, looking out at the view and thinking about what you are going to do for the day

  • The teak exterior table is surrounded by a spacious coral stone deck

  • The interior teak dining table also has a great view to the west

  • Your dining room is open to the kitchen….

  • …and is well equipped. You can easily prepare a home cooked meal or …

  • …why not treat yourself and hire a private chef to spoil you for an evening…or two

  • Your pillow view from the upper left master bedroom. Imagine waking up to this view in the morning!

  • When the day comes to an end, you will sleep in air-conditioned comfort in the upper left master bedroom

  • Your pillow view from the upper right master bedroom…comfortable and beautiful!

  • The two master baths are identical and each was remodeled in 2015

  • The lower right bedroom can be set up as twins or as a king. This bedroom also has a beautiful view!

  • The lower right bedroom bath

  • The lower left bedroom can be set up as twins or as a king. You will enjoy waking up to this view!

  • The lower left bedroom bath

  • The 34 ft pool is also good for swimming laps and exercising

  • The clouds in the eastern sky may also turn lovely shades of pink at sunset

  • At sunrise, sometimes the eastern clouds quietly say good morning to Le Lapin (the rabbit) by forming the shape of a furry bunny

  • The view to the west includes beautiful sunsets

  • This is definitely a great way to start a St John day

Le Lapin is a 2-level home that has the kitchen, living areas and 2 bedrooms on the lower level, while two large master bedrooms accessed by interior stairs are on the upper level. Both Dolphin Run and Le Lapin were built by the same owner so they are similar in design, including unique wraparound decks and covered porches on both levels.
The 34′ x 12′ solar heated pool is surrounded by a beautiful tiled sundeck and colorful tropical landscaping. The pool and sundeck are located on the less windy, west side of the house where the sun shines from sunup to sunset. Even though Le Lapin is a south facing home, its unique design keeps the house surprisingly cool and comfortable, even in the warmest summer months.

  • Caribbean Villas Comments:

    Desirable real estate on St. John is all about "location, location", and with its lovely hilltop setting and its functional design, Le Lapin certainly qualifies as desirable. Le Lapin is the last villa on a dead end road that winds up the tallest hill overlooking Hart Bay. There's no noise from traffic, just the sound of surf breaking on Hart Bay Beach, so you can relax in delightful peace and quiet and precious privacy.
    Le Lapin's superb location and wraparound decks on both levels provide great views in all directions, including beautiful water vistas of the south shore of St. John to the east and south and Pillsbury Sound to the west. Even at night you have a choice of marvelous views: the distant twinkling lights of St. Thomas to the west or moonlight shimmering over Hart Bay to the east. This is also a sun lover's house. From your bed you can watch the morning sun rise out of the sea, then bask in its warmth all day by the pool, and later watch it slowly fall into the Caribbean sky in a blaze of color.
    Le Lapin was designed as a child friendly home that is great for families, and with its romantic location this is also an enticing villa for honeymooners and couples. If you're familiar with the earlier version of Le Lapin (now called Dolphin Run), you might wonder why anyone would sell such an enjoyable vacation home. The answer lies in this very inviting and attractive new home.

    8/30/18- I want to thank you very much for our fantastic stay at Le Lapin (under statement). We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at that villa, and of course at my favorite place on the planet - St John, regardless of the recovery that’s been happening since the last hurricane. I’ll always want to go back regardless of the climate challenges to the island. I just love it.
    Regarding the experience the Caribbean Villas gave us - Superb!! Details, details, details. Your staff was incredibly attentive to all the important details and we were most appreciative for everything:
    -Website usability
    - Friendly, Kind & Attentive office staff
    - No problems adding addt’l guests
    - Very informative material sent in advance regarding arrival & departure procedures, the Island amenities, and of course need to knows about the villa itself (which I made required reading for all guests on the plane - and a quiz on the boat- really!)
    - On the island greeter - Deloros
    - Jeep rental coordination
    - Jeeps delivered to the dock!
    - Escorted to the property
    - Deloros’ explanation and tour of the villa
    - Special touches and welcome gifts at the villa
    - Who to contact just in case..
    - Jeeps allowed to be dropped off at the dock upon departure

    I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but the above is something to be proud of and is incredible in and of itself and made our stay that much more enjoyable.

    I will be back & will be coordinating through Caribbean Villas when I do
    Again, big thanks to you and your staff for an absolutely fabulous vacation!!!

    - Le Lapin was ideal for our families. The deck and pool areas are very nice. The home is an exceptional villa with spectacular views and great privacy! Thank you!

    - We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Le Lapin. Thank you!
    - We had another great vacation on St John. This is our 5th year with Caribbean villas and our 3rd year at Le Lapin. Love the house! Thank you!
    - Thank you very much for a wonderful vacation ! This is our 6th time in St John, and we all agree that this was the best villa yet (except for the road up to the house - what a spine buster !!). The house was great, the views were fabulous and we all had a great time. Thanks again for all of the help that you and your staff gave us in selecting this villa.
    - MJ and I wanted to say thank you for assisting us with our reservation at Le Lapin. It is the first time a villa has ever exceeded our expectations! It was very clean, well stocked and laid out, and had super nice east west views! I will be posting a positive review on Trip advisor soon…though I am hesitant to do so, as I would like to keep this villa as our little secret!
