Brisas del Mar is located on the eastern side of St John overlooking Coral Bay, a 30 minute drive from Cruz Bay. The villa is situated just a 10 minute drive to shops, restaurants and bars in Coral Bay. Several beautiful national park beaches are a 15 to 25 minute drive.

Brisas del Mar is primarily a one level villa with the pool and exterior deck directly outside the sliding glass doors with a hot tub on the lower deck.
The great room affords expansive views of East End and the British Virgin Islands through two sets of screened sliding glass windows. All 3 bedrooms have sliding doors with similar east views. The house has tiled floors throughout, beamed and vaulted ceilings, and ceiling fans in every room. The living area includes cable TV, wifi internet access, DVD, stereo with CD and cassette deck player, books, games, puzzles, telephones and tropical artwork.
There is ample seating for diners at the casual bar or formal mahogany table seating six or enjoy the view from the glass topped table on the deck.
The well equipped kitchen features mahogany cabinets and island, stainless refrigerator, gas stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, espresso machine, toaster, blender, cookware and dinnerware.
The two en suite bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the villa on the main level to ensure maximum privacy. A spiral staircase leads to the third en suite bedroom with private balcony and spectacular sunrise vistas. Bed linens, towels and beach towels are provided.
An outdoor gas grill and laundry room with washer and dryer complete the 'at home in paradise' atmosphere. Ice chests in several sizes and beach chairs are available for island exploring.
The last half-mile access to the villa is on a road, part of which has unpaved switch-backs, that may require 4-wheel drive in tropical showers.

About Susan and Bob Voigt
After many vacations on St. John since 1968, we bought this beautiful villa with a fabulous view of Coral Bay and cooling breezes on the quiet side of the island. We extended the sun deck and added a lower deck and hot tub to make the villa even more attractive. It is a great retreat after a day at the beach to snorkel! Although we live in Virginia, we have a great couple nearby, Buck and Sally, taking care of our villa for us.
Susan and Bob Voigt purchased this villa in 2004
Why Susan and Bob Voigt chose Bordeaux Mountain
We have vacationed on several other Caribbean islands, but St. John is our favorite! The USVI National Park covers over two-thirds of the island and offers many protected beaches with great snorkeling. Our villa is central to south, east end and the north shore beaches.
What makes this villa unique
The spectacular view, the comfortable layout, and well equipped kitchen make this villa a comfortable vacation home for families or up to 3 couples. The final half-mile drive up the hillside on a partially paved road provides a chance to experience St. John the way it was 25 years ago.
