The design of Vista Caribe is similar to the design of its 4-bedroom sister home, South Palm, except that Vista Caribe has a handsome pool cabana (bedroom). You park above the villa and descend a flight of stairs to the great house. The design of the great house consists of multiple adjoining buildings with separate exterior rooflines, but with an interior that is all under one continuous roof. You enter into the great room, which contains the living and dining rooms, with the kitchen in an adjoining alcove. Beyond the kitchen and laundry room, a common set of interior stairs leads to the bedrooms. Each of the three bedrooms in the great house is on a different level, with each bedroom facing south to capture the dazzling views. The great house master bedroom is on the uppermost level, with a second bedroom (2 twins) one level below, and the third bedroom (king bed) on the ground level. There is a private master bedroom in the pool cabana, which is defined by coral stone floors, a granite and mahogany bath and wet bar, and an exterior built of gorgeous native stone.

Vista Caribe enjoys a terrific setting on one of the choicest lots within the gated and exclusive Virgin Grand Estates. It is located 650 feet above the Caribbean Sea in a quiet and exclusive location, with distinctive neighbors like Kalorama and Rapture. The excellent views include the distant islands of St. Croix, the St. James, Dog Island, St. Thomas, Lovango and more. The sunset views are spectacular, undoubtedly some of the best on the island. A private road leads to Vista Caribe and dead-ends about 200 yards beyond your villa. As of April 2015, there are only two villas beyond Vista Caribe on this private drive, so there is very little road traffic and this setting remains quite tranquil and peaceful. The sun arcs across your horizon all day long and provides you with an ever-changing panorama of color. Your south / southwest orientation also means gentle breezes and sun on your pool deck from 9 AM to sunset – this is definitely a sun lovers villa (the gazebo, pool and a/c house provide relief, if you need it). About a half-mile below you are the restaurants, beach and fitness room of the Westin Resort, while the restaurants and shops of the always enjoyable village of Cruz Bay are a 10-minute drive, entirely on paved roads.
