Calypso del Sol has glorious water views from the pool deck and from both large, covered porches, with inviting views of Chocolate Hole and Pillsbury Sound and gorgeous sunsets. You can relax around the unusually large pool or take a short walk to Chocolate Hole Beach. The house is fully and beautifully appointed to offer every comfort in a close-in but private location, while making the most of its beautiful Caribbean setting. Just 7 minutes from downtown Cruz Bay, the villa is in the perfect location for going to town to try the many terrific restaurants or for exploring the famous North Shore beaches. Calypso is meant to be your vacation home away from home. With vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans, tiled floors, and Caribbean art and furniture throughout, Calypso del Sol has a relaxing and inviting interior. For your entertainment, a TV/VCR/DVD, cable, and a stereo with a CD player are provided. We offer free WiFi.
Great Kitchen and Cool Covered Decks: The gourmet kitchen has cherry cabinets, a new dishwasher and stainless steel appliances, microwave, and a center island to allow collaborative meal preparation. The plates, glasses, serving utensils, etc., are also new. The kitchen is fully equipped with almost every kitchen appliance or tool one could want. Although many wonderful restaurants can be found close by in Cruz Bay, you will probably find yourselves drawn to this efficient, fabulous kitchen to prepare a few meals featuring local food available from nearby grocery stores.
Among the most charming features of Calypso del Sol are its porches. Sliding glass doors toward the Bay open to the 500 square foot porch from the upstairs living/dining room with a fabulous view of Chocolate Hole Bay through the arched overhang. The upper deck has a propane grill. The same porch design on the lower level has comfortable rocking chairs -- another attractive space outside the two downstairs bedrooms for reading or other activities.
Large Romantic Bedrooms and Spacious Baths: Calypso del Sol sleeps 6 comfortably in its three bedrooms. The master bedroom is off the living room, and has a king-sized bed; this bedroom -- as the others -- has a sliding glass door out to the covered porch and has wonderful views of Chocolate Hole Bay. Air conditioned and with ceiling fans, this room provides a tranquil, romantic island getaway. The large bath has a full, island style, walk-in tiled shower, and comfortable privacy.
The second and third equally-spacious bedrooms are on the lower level and open out to the large covered deck on that level. Each features king-sized beds or can be configured as twin beds. Both bedrooms have sliding glass doors onto the porch and gorgeous views of Chocolate Hole Bay. Both are fully air conditioned. Each has a large, en suite bathroom with double vanities and a walk in shower. The linens and decor for these bedrooms are tropical and cheerful, and black-out curtains are provided for those who want to sleep in.
Enjoy Calypso's Breezes, Pool and Hot Tub: Just outside the living/dining room on the top level toward the pool is a screened porch with a table that seats 6 for al fresco dining or you can eat in the inside dining room which also comfortably seats 6. A sofa and chairs make the screened porch also an serve as an outdoor living, cooled by breezes from the ceiling fans and overlooking the pool and Chocolate Hole.
St. John's gorgeous beaches may lure you into the Caribbean, but you may not be able to tear yourself away from Calypso del Sol's azure blue pool, which is perfect for floating or swimming under St. John's sun. Chaises and umbrellas for shade make this a truly comfortable place to while away the day, reading or tanning or napping; floats are provided. Later, after a fantastic sunset and under the twinkling evening stars, you can enjoy the hot tub - which also seats 6.
