Kismet is located on the summit of Maria's Bluff, offering breathtaking 360-degree views of sunrise and sunset, and encompassing vistas of Chocolate Hole, Great Cruz Bay, St. Thomas, and on clear days, St. Croix beyond. This property sets a superlative standard among St. John's luxury villas. This spacious and fully-screened home is beautifully designed and executed with a sumptuous Moroccan flair and luxuriously furnished with your comfort in mind. Sitauted behind an electronic gate, Kismet is built as three fully air-conditioned pavilions, offering five bedroom/bath suites in two pavilions, and the Great Room pavilion with separate living and dining areas, a movie theatre and a gourmet kitchen. The master bedroom pavilion features a sitting room, bedroom and bath with a steam shower and bathtub. Two bedrooms are situated in Kismet's second poolside pavilion with a few stairs leading down to a second breezy patio set with a Moroccan fountain; two more bedrooms/bath suites and an air-conditioned billiard room with two single daybeds, wet bar and full bath adjoin. All three pavilions open into a tiled courtyard with a sparkling pool and hot tub enjoying magnificent views of St. Thomas in the blue distance. Take a stroll off the courtyard along a path that winds through the enticing, lush gardens planted with exotic date palms, majestic royal palms, tropical flowers and fruits, set with a magnificent gazebo and small private seating areas for quiet moments.
Located above the master bedroom pavilion via a staircase, the breezy Sun Room offers spectacular long-distance views of the pool courtyard and miles beyond to the horizon through its open arches. Seating banquettes within this scenic aerie are strewn with colorful, plush cushions from which to enjoy sunsets and cocktails. The screening room, perhaps the only one on St. John, features a 55-inch LED-HD screen and a lavish and varied collection of movies on laser discs, DVDs and videos. Stunning custom woodwork throughout this incredible villa adds to Kismet's privileged aura. All of Kismet's bedrooms offer satellite television and internet access, but if you don't bring your laptop, a computer with printer is available in the living room for easy access to your email. Kismet sets the benchmark in the U.S.V.I. for luxury, and offers an unprecedented level of attentive and special service to villa guests' needs and desires - unequivocably, five stars plus!

St. John is the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands. It features beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise waters, colorful coral and tropical fish, and green velvet hills. Two thirds of the island is the Virgin Islands National Park so the gorgeous beaches and forests will remain untouched and be accessible to everyone. Tour the national park by jeep or safari bus or hike the trails led by a park ranger. St. John is a peaceful, uncommercialized paradise yet still offers every facility and amenity that a resort has to offer. There is lots to do whether it be on land or in the water.
