St John is a lush volcanic island, with a chain of hills, mountains and valleys that stretches almost the entire length of the island and separates the north side from the south side. The mountains grow taller as you approach the Coral Bay area, and it’s here that Bayview is located. Sitting about 1000 feet above the Caribbean Sea, Bayview is nestled into a very private and cozy setting on a spectacular mountaintop. The dramatic primary views extend far to the east, overlooking Coral Bay and the east end of St. John, with the British Virgin Islands and the Caribbean Sea on the distant horizon. Bordeaux Mountain dominates the expansive view to the south, while the view to the north and west captures St John’s famous north shore national park, with Francis and Maho Bays and the British island of Jost Van Dyke in the distance. Many rental homes offer fetching views of Coral Bay, but only a handful of homes are mountaintop and also offer fabulous views of the north shore and Jost Van Dyke. This is such a great location that it’s easy to spend the entire day at Bayview, but the calm turquoise waters and National Park beaches at Maho Bay and Francis Bay are an easy 4-7 minute drive. Cruz Bay is a 15-minute drive along Centerline Road, or slightly longer if you take the exceptionally scenic drive along the north shore, past Maho, Cinnamon, Trunk, and Hawksnest Bays. If you head off to the east, the restaurants and bars of Coral Bay are a 5 – 10 minute drive.
Our house is an attractive traditional design with two buildings that are connected by three decks and patios. You park on the upper level and enter into a private garden patio that runs along the north side of the main house. This north patio is sheltered from the tradewinds and is ideal for quiet dining, beautiful north shore views and exceptionally private full body tanning. Off the patio is the one-level main house which contains the living/dining rooms and kitchen, plus a covered deck which runs along the south side of the house and offers spectacular views. The 2-level building beside the main house contains an upper and a lower level bedroom, both with tiled baths. A large, sun deck adjoins the pool, which is located on the lower level. The pool deck is also quite private with a southern exposure that insures all day sun.
The tiled master bedroom (king bed) is located on the upper level, with wonderful down island views. Large screened windows, ceiling fans and the trade winds insure restful sleep in a comfortably cool environment. The tiled second bedroom is located at pool level and contains two twin beds that convert to a king (shown in photo). Both bathrooms are fully tiled with showers. The master bedroom also contains an iPod dock
In the great room there are twelve doors and windows which create a bright, well ventilated and open interior with stunning views from inside or outside the house. The tiled living room has a cathedral ceiling and is furnished with wicker and rattan furniture, Caribbean flavored artwork and other accessories. For your listening/viewing pleasure there is a 32” flat screen TV with DVD, a stereo/CD, a large collection of DVDs and CDs, plus high speed wireless from a satellite dish. A washer and dryer are located in the laundry room. For dining, you can dine inside at the countertop bar-table, or outside on the Coral Bay covered deck or on the cozy and romantic garden patio.
The kitchen is well equipped, including a microwave oven, electric stove and oven, toaster, coffee maker, blender, pots and pans, and assorted kitchenware. A gas BBQ grill, telephone and beach chairs are also included.Get the full listing »
