ISLAND HORIZONS - GORGEOUS VILLA WITH POOL, SPECTACULAR VIEWS

Coral Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Island Horizons sits on the flank of Bordeaux Mountain on St. John, one of the loveliest islands in the Caribbean. It is centrally located 12 minutes from St. John's fabulous North Shore beaches, 12 from the quieter South Shore and also from the secluded East End beaches. 9 miles from Cruz Bay. From its two verandas almost 700ft/ 200+ m above the sea, the view extends from the waters of Coral Bay across St. John's East End and down the Drake Channel to Virgin Gorda 40 miles away. The islands seem to float between sky and sea in a succession of horizons.

Island Horizons is a sparkling newly constructed villa that was specially designed to optimize this spectacular vista from the two 62 ft/20 m covered verandas and every room in the house ... as well as from the secluded pool and its adjacent sundeck. You can lay in bed admiring the view from the two air-conditioned bedrooms at either end of the villa's main floor -- one queen and the other with twin beds that make up into a king. Both feature sliding glass doors opening onto the veranda and have an attached bathroom with large tile/stone shower. The great room at the center of the main floor features three sets of sliding glass doors opening onto the veranda and the island horizons beyond. It contains a well-equipped gourmet kitchen, living and dining areas and a powder room. The large outside gas grill will delight the chef and dining on the veranda overlooking the sea and island horizons will leave all with an enduring memory.

A covered stairway leads to the second level and a queen bedroom suite with its own bathroom and sitting room. It offers the same great bedside view and sliding glass doors that open onto a second 62 ft/ 20 m veranda. Finally, the pool deck provides the same spectacular views from the secluded pool and sundeck. The covered shaded area of the deck offers shelter from the sun while the sundeck surrounded by tropical gardens is ideal for sunbathers.

The villa is very private and the pool very secluded, surrounded with tropical gardens.

Construction on the adjacent lot finished in February 2012!

Your hosts are Marie-France and Ed Smith. Ed's a retired Navy Captain and Marie-France, a native of France, is a retired university lecturer -- in French of course.

You'll see some of Ed's paintings at the villa.

They fell in love with St. John during a vacation with their two children in 1992 and carried that love into finding one of the most beautiful spots on the island and then constructing Island Horizons Villa in 2005-7. They hope that you too will be captivated by St. John and Island Horizons and return often.

Marie-France and Ed Smith purchased this villa in 2007

St. John is a unique blend of a small town (population only 4,300), laid back Caribbean ambiance, and a National Park with spectacular scenery both above and below the waves. The Smiths managed to find a particularly spectacular site for Island Horizons some 700 feet/ 200+ meters above the Caribbean with a view stretching all the way down the Drake Channel to Virgin Gorda more than 30 miles away. A view that they and you will never forget.

Island Horizons combines all of the amenities of a well equipped villa with a view so magnificent that it was featured in an article about St. John in 'Caribbean Travel + Life' magazine December 2008. Two 62 foot covered verandas take full advantage of the view which is also to be seen from each room -- and the secluded pool.

Words cannot even begin to describe how wonderful our visit to St. John & Island Horizons was. It truly could not have been more perfect. St. John is simply breathtaking, and so laid back and relaxing. We have already started scheming on how we can make it back!!!
Thank you so much for the ability to stay at your home during our vacation. Island Horizons was beautiful, clean, and comforting. I was very impressed!!
Your paintings were gorgeous, as well; I really enjoyed them! We were sad to leave, but look forward to returning to Island Horizons in the future!

My family and I (all adults) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "Island Horizons". The house was very comfortable and well equipped with all you need in a vacation home. The amazing views from the living room, bedrooms and veranda were breathtaking. The pool was nice for a float or dip after a hot day at the beach. We snorkeled daily at one of the many beaches about 20 minutes away. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and have a relaxing vacation this is your place.
You cannot walk to town easily as the road is very steep and narrow and a couple miles down. Not much there anyway and several places closed as we were getting into the off season. Those establishments open were very accommodating. We were very glad that we rented the All-Wheel Drive Jeep as recommended, our neighbor had not and could not get up the driveway to the main road.
Overall a wonderful place and I would happily return. It was a memorable vacation not just because of the great outings but also this amazing place we would come home to and savor each day!

We left St. John on Saturday and are already wishing that we were back there. Island Horizons was the perfect home away from home with the added bonus of having the most amazing views that we have ever seen. When we first walked in the door and saw the breathtaking views, we were in awe of the beauty of St. John and felt extremely lucky to have found Island Horizons.

Our first visit to St. John was more than 12 years ago. At that time, we stayed at The Westin in Great Cruz Bay. We only had a car for one day at that time, so we didn't spend more than an hour on the Coral Bay side of the Island; now that we have stayed in Island Horizons, we are hooked and hopefully will always stay there when we are "on island".

The owners of Island Horizons have thought of everything when providing for their guests' needs. From the beach chairs and coolers, to the well stocked kitchen, there was nothing that we needed that we couldn't find in the house.

Although we did stay in and grill during 2 of our nights there, we also went to some of the wonderful restaurants that were nearby.

I truly believe that our week in Island Horizons gave us the slice of "paradise" that we were looking for during this much needed vacation.
