Sea Waves is a 4 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath oceanfront villa located in a private and very quiet setting on Hart Bay, on the south shore of St. John. Your view overlooks Hart Bay and the beautiful turquoise waters of the Caribbean, and the only sounds you hear are the palms rustling in the breeze and the waves breaking on the beach below you. A trail leads from the villa down to the beach below you which is pleasant for a morning walk and offers good snorkeling on a calm day. Nice as it is, Hart Bay is certainly not in the same class as the National Park beaches on the north shore, which Trip Advisor has rated as some of the world’s best. It’s a 2-mile and less than 10-minute drive to the ferry, restaurants, bars and shops of Cruz Bay, and a 1.5-mile drive to the Dolphin Market for groceries.
Vehicle Information: A 4 Wheel Drive vehicle is needed for travel on St John

Caribbean Villas Comments
Caribbean Villas Comments:
St. John is a beautiful island where tranquility and natural beauty still flourish. We’re always searching for villas that capture these qualities and Sea Waves is one of those homes. Some of the notable features of this villa include:
A very peaceful and quiet oceanfront setting above the beach at Hart Bay,
A location with no other noise except for the sound of the wind and the surf, yet you’re an easy 2-mile drive from “beach bars, guitars and a whole lotta love”
The design of this home offers unusual privacy for couples who want to share a villa and still have a bedroom and deck with ocean views and “alone on an island” privacy.
This is a one owner villa, and the owner lives on island and insures that the villa is very well maintained. Although the house was completed in 2012, Sea Waves has the appearance and overall condition of a new home.
There is a12’ x 20’ pool and sundeck, and a covered deck with clothing optional privacy,
In the unlikely event that you tire of the soothing sound of breaking surf, the powerful sound system and good acoustics easily override the music of the surf
Despite being a 4-bedroom villa, this is also a great home for 1-2 couples because the great room, pool, sundeck, and bedroom 2 are all on the same level.
Sea Waves is the perfect name, because that’s what you’ll be looking at and listening to every day, in every room.
Thank you for your interest in villa Sea Waves!
