Mermaid Falls is located at an elevation of about 550 feet in upper Peter Bay, where it is surrounded by the national park. This is a natural and beautiful setting where the views are just gorgeous. The view stretches for more than 180 degrees, from sunsets over St. Thomas in the west, past Jost Van Dyke in the north, to Tortola in the east. Below you are the white sands and turquoise waters of Peter Bay and Cinnamon Bay, while all around you is a forest of green. This is considered to be one of the finest, most highly prized locations on St. John and the entire Caribbean.
Mermaid Falls has deeded access to the beach at Peter Bay, a white sand beach with tranquil waters and good swimming and snorkeling. If you prefer, it's less than a 5-minute drive to the world class national park beaches at Trunk or Cinnamon bays. It's a 5-10 minute, beautiful drive to the celebrated restaurants at the four star resort at Caneel Bay, and an additional 5 minutes into the excellent restaurants and shops in the charming town of Cruz Bay.
The villa has a beautiful design that incorporates many elegant features like graceful arched passageways supported by doric columns, spacious coral stone decks, oversized mahogany french doors, ballistered railings, beamed cathedral ceilings, and many private decks and sitting areas.
Mermaid Falls consists of a great house and a guesthouse, both of which are connected by a coral stone deck and a covered patio and wet bar. The great house contains the kitchen, living and dining areas on the main (pool) level, while a mahogany staircase leads up to the master bedroom/bath and a guest bedroom/bath on the upper level. Exterior stairs lead down to the lower level bedroom/bath in the main house. The guesthouse is a 2 1/2-story building with a bedroom/bath on the lower level and a second bedroom/bath on the main level. Behind the waterfall, stairs lead up to the romantic hillside hot tub for 4 - 6 people.
Bedrooms. The master bedroom is the largest bedroom and includes a 4-poster king bed, a writing desk, upholstered reading chairs, a satellite tv and dvd and a whirlpool tub in the master bath. Down the hall from the master is a guest bedroom with a queen bed, satellite tv and dvd and tasteful furnishings. On the lower level of the main house there is a private bedroom with 3 twin beds, a flat screen tv and dvd and comfortable seating area for four. In the guesthouse, the lower bedroom has a queen sleigh bed while the upper bedroom has a queen 4-poster bed.
All five bedrooms have ocean views, tiled baths and showers, private tiled decks or balconies, and individually controlled air conditioning. The living room is defined by oversized french mahogany doors and is furnished with sink-into-it furniture, and includes a flat screen satellite tv/dvd and a stereo/cd player and satellite radio.
The elegant kitchen adjoins the living room and has coral stone counter tops, mahogany cabinets and all stainless steel appliances, including a gas stove and oven with ventilation hood, a microwave oven, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, toaster, coffee maker and a complete collection of cookware and dinnerware. There is a washer/dryer off the kitchen as well as a half bath.
