About Elisabeth Karcher & Paul Joabar
I live in South of France on the French Riviera.
In Cannes, my grand parents apartment was feet away from the Rockfeller mansion witch is now a public library surrounded by a beautiful park.
60 years ago, Rockfeller bought then donated 2/3 of St John island to National Park.
14 years ago, the captain and me had been sailing up and down the Caribbean islands during 2 years and St John appeared to be the jewel. We fell in love with St John the day we anchored our boat in Coral Harbor. Upper Carolina estate in Coral Bay was the best spot I could find to realize my dreams: a house on the hill with breath taking views. Adventure villa location provides nice breezes, panoramic views, good satellite cell & internet receptions.
In 2001 I decided to redesign the villa as aerie as if it was a boat.
Why Elisabeth Karcher & Paul Joabar chose Coral Bay
Adventure villa is located in Coral bay hill on .82 acre away from neighbor & hurricane winds. Its mahogany cathedral ceilings are laid out East to West which allows the easterly Trade winds and ceiling fans to ventilate every room. The villa has been entirely upgraded in 2001 then in 2012.
Its 4,100 square feet provide enough space for the numerous artifacts collected during our travels and the addition of St Johnians paintings.
Adventure villa turned out to be a successful weekly rental especially by the quality of its guests.
There is a saying : 'Nice house, nice guests'. Adventure's guests fall in love with the villa and we often find a farewell little gift. It is a warm feeling.
What makes this villa unique
Adventure villa is a very secluded & spacious family home perched on the hill with breathtaking views on Coral harbor & surrounding hills . You will have to share the villa with a lot of birds nesting & singing all day since 6 am .
The manager lives in the cottage below the villa & is available if you need him.
Guestbook comments from the owner
As we look down upon the moonlit, your home sitting atop this mountain makes
us feel as we too are stars. Our week was so outstanding ! Your artwork was a
window that you opened for us to enjoy. The landscaping was enjoyed by many
including beautiful birds that would stop by. Your shower areas were fabulous.
We would truely love to return. What a magical place this is !
