St John Villa Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Just completed in late 2010 and located on the outskirts of Cruz Bay, Seashore Allure is a small and intimate but very luxurious complex offering just eight stunning, soundproofed condo units. From its dramatic waterfront location on Turner Bay, Seashore Allure enjoys breathtaking ocean views dotted with the green islands of Little and Great St. James in the blue distance. Gentle waves whisper on the pebble beach, rippling in from the crystal-clear bay.
Situated on the third floor of Seashore Allure is Nautilus, a stunning two-level condo with three bedrooms featuring central air-conditioning throughout, three sumptuous king bedroom/bath suites and so many great guest amenities. Warm Brazilian hardwood flooring and cabinetry serve as a rich backdrop for Nautilus' elegant and modern furnishings, artistic lighting and excellent floor plan. The fully-equipped sleek and spacious kitchen features granite countertops lined with upholstered bar stools, stainless steel appliances, and has just about everything you might need to create a simple snack to a gourmet meal. The living/dining area is furnished with a large sectional leather sofa with electronic reclining seats for plush power lounging in front of the 55-inch high-def flat-screen TV.
On Nautilus' main level are two bedrooms, each with a king-sized bed and an ensuite bath, inviting romance and relaxation in deluxe style. Both baths feature a double vanity and a large walk-in shower of native bluebit stone and artistic tile work. A graceful staircase, set against a dramatic, spotlighted waterfall which cascades down a natural stone wall, curves up to Nautilus' separate upper level where the penthouse king bedroom suite looks out to a dazzling, wide-angle ocean panorama from its own private verandah. Its adjoining bath is beautifully laid out in travertine tile with granite countertops, offering a glassed-in shower, jacuzzi bathtub for two and a bidet.
From either the living area or from the upper penthouse suite, step outside to one of Nautilus' private verandahs set with comfortable seating; both overlook the pool area and sunkissed Turner Bay. The verandah's clear tempered glass half-walls allow you uninterrupted vistas from your shady private spot, just perfect for reading, admiring the ocean view, or for evening cocktails - you're at the top of the world. Should your friends or extended family wish to have their own accommodations, they can rent other units just steps from Nautilus, so everyone has their own beautiful space and privacy.
Just below, steps from your condo, is Seashore Allure's convivial pool and entertainment area, where all guests are welcome to hang out. The marine-blue pool, set into a coralstone terrace, gets sun all day long. Nearby is a thatched pavilion which offers a shaded area with a gas grill and a 46-inch satellite TV, and there are tables for alfresco dining. There's also a convenient powder room and shower. And at the very top of Seashore Allure is a spiral staircase which leads up to a partially-roofed patio and the complex's large hot tub and lounge area. A stone archway frames the picture-perfect ocean view seen from this level. On the premises is also the condo office (manned from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.), where you can get information and assistance and use the printer to print out your boarding passes.
These are beautifully-designed and artistically-executed residences. With travertine tile, the creative use of exotic warm woods on floors and ceilings, St. John-style classic stone and shell work accent walls, tasteful decor and the latest lighting, appliances and electronics, you'll find Seashore Allure exceedingly polished and sophisticated, sure to please its fortunate guests. A flat walking path from Seashore Allure takes you through a local neighborhood and a nature preserve into Cruz Bay in about 10 minutes, for shopping, dining, bars and nightlife (or drive into Cruz Bay in 2 minutes). And it's only a short drive to St. John's spectacular National Park beaches. Seashore Allure is an excellent choice for your Virgin Islands vacation with family and friends. Very highly recommended!
