4 Bedroom, 4 Bath | Great Cruz Bay
Additional Guests up to Max Guests, $250/week each.
Splash is located in a highly desirable beachfront setting a few feet from the tranquil, sparkling waters of Great Cruz Bay Harbor. The views from Splash are lovely with sailboats floating peacefully on the palm fringed bay in the foreground, and picturesque views of Pillsbury Sound, St. Thomas and blazing sunsets in the background. It's a short drive (5 minutes) on paved roads to the restaurants and boutiques of Cruz Bay. It's also a short walk (5 minutes) to the three restaurants, beach, fitness facilities and shops at the Westin Resort, but Splash remains a world removed from this upscale resort. For those who love to be in and on the Caribbean, this home is the perfect home base.
Splash is best described as a wonderful, whimsical beach cottage, but with all the creature comforts. With its floor to ceiling stone walls, wide board mahogany floors, skylights, interior and exterior gardens, and lovely and colorful decor, this is essentially a one level home, with the crow's nest bedroom being the only room on the upper level. You enter into the great room, with its unique , interior pool, kitchen, dining and living areas, all with wonderful views and all at ground level. The air conditioned master bedroom and the guest bedroom are located on opposite ends of the great room and offer excellent privacy.
Splash has three distinct deck/patios plus a small beach area. The main deck is located off the great room and has exquisite views, comfortable furniture and dining for 6. A half level below the sun deck on the east side of Splash is a private patio that is tucked away under tall palm trees. This romantic hideaway contains the basics for island “limin”; an outdoor shower, a hammock and a table for 4. The sun patio is also a half level below the great room and consists of sand, lounge chairs, sunshine and great harbor views. The Caribbean is literally at your feet, accessed by a private steps into the ocean.
The living room has comfortable furnishings for relaxation, watching a movie or soaking in the views. A wall of windows looks out on the harbor and a screened door off the living room opens to the main deck. For entertainment, this room includes a 37 inch high definition TV with DVD and VCR, and a stereo with a 5 disc CD.
The interior dining room is one of our favorites on St John. It is a right outside the kitchen and a few steps above the water, with a teak table that seats 6-8. There are screens on three sides of the dining room, so the picture postcard views surround you and the soft breezes caress you. As you sit here in the morning, coffee in hand, and with the early sunshine reflecting off the boats in the harbor, the feeling of peacefulness and tranquility is just magic. This is a great place to start another day in the islands.
The kitchen is separated from the pool area and living room by a large mahogany bar, complete with bar chairs and whimsical décor. This is a fully equipped kitchen with a refrigerator, 4-burner gas range and oven, dishwasher, microwave oven, blender, toaster, coffee maker, etc. There is a washer/dryer off the kitchen and a gas barbeque grill on the deck.
The bedrooms are decorated in a colorful Caribbean style. There are 3 bedrooms which have interior access.
The air conditioned master bedroom has a romantic decor with a king bed, stone walls, cathedral ceiling, cable TV and tiled bath and shower. The air conditioned guest bedroom has 2 twins that convert to a king. The newly added 3rd bedroom has a/c and 1 set of bunk beds. This 3rd bedroom is a great option for families traveling with young children.
The exterior access crow's nest bedroom has to be one of St. John's most unique and fascinating bedrooms. It's on the upper (rooftop) level and is accessed by a spiral stair case. The view is superb, and the decor is vibrant and tropical. All but the “bunk” room have full baths.
The pool at Splash is very unique - it's inside the villa and is bordered by floor to ceiling stone walls with a large skylight directly above. The tropical sun
warms the pool, and guests love this private oasis.
Splash is a wonderful home, waterfront, whimsical and the perfect spot to watch the sun go down with a refreshment in hand. Experience it for yourself.
