The house is laid out in 3 separate structures, connected via the pool and gallery so the bedrooms offer easy convenience but are private and quiet.
The villa consists of three separate structures

The master bedroom is located above the great room via interior stairs and is big and beautiful with a great en-suite bath and a large private deck... a perfect place to escape with a book or to just watch the stars before bed.

There are an additional 2 king bedroom suites that are also large and lovely with beautiful en-suite baths. The fourth bedroom is much more than that - actually a small apartment with its own kitchen, living space and queen bedroom and bath. This room is perfect for those wanting a little more independence, or is perfect for grandparents, teens or even nannies.

Every one of the rooms has views to the west and the spellbinding views of the Caribbean Sea, including those world famous sunsets!
All rooms have an ocean view!

Ard na Mara sits on a very large gently sloping double lot surrounded by beautiful gardens, and it's not unusual to find one of our Caribbean key deer grazing below. The location in the venerable Virgin Grand Estates is perfect, high and quiet in an upscale neighborhood with incredible views, yet a quick 5-7 minute drive to Cruz Bay and the beaches immediately beyond.

We stayed at this beautiful home for a week in February. The view is absolutely stunning, especially at sunset. The home is beautifully designed, with many details, such as the ceramic sea turtle lights, each unique. The three separate units provide nice privacy, and are each very lovely. The view from the pool is spectacular. There are beautiful flowers within the landscape. We never wanted to leave, it was paradise!

...The staff at Destination St. John were very nice, accommodating, and quick to respond to our (literally) last minute request. They had the villa cleaned & ready the next day, with a staff member ready to meet us & show us to the villa...they even put a very nice welcome basket of food/snacks in the refrigerator. Another villa rental company sent me a rude email saying they were too busy to schedule a cleaning service...I'm so glad we stayed with DSJ...Great service!...I plan to use them exclusively in the future.
