Two Bedroom Two Bathroom Luxury Villa with Spectacular View and Amenities
About Alyce Jordan
Paul grew up in Rensselaer New York and Alyce in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. We met through a personal add in Philadelphia Magazine in 1987 before the internet and social media.Paul had taken a position with the Franklin Mint outside of Philadelphia. On a phone interview Paul passed Alyce's Love Test questionnaire with flying colors and was invited to meet. We agreed on a "love contract" as it was a second marriage for both of us. The contract provided for two vacations a year without the kids. It was on our first vacation that we found St John and decided we would make our home here. It took us ten years of saving and planning but it was a wonderful dream we shared.
Alyce Jordan purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Alyce Jordan chose Estate Glucksberg and Grunwald
We first purchased and renovated Plumeria another villa in 1996. We renovated it to be our home but ended up never living there as it became one of the most successful vacation rentals on St. John. We loved our Gifft Hill location and purchased the land for our new home SeaSwan Villa completed in 2015. We have lived at our building site since 2006. The privacy, the quiet and spectacular views are unparalleled.
What makes this Villa unique
One picture is worth a thousand words. The view is 110 miles on a clear day and we have many of them with beautiful soft breezes. We are at the very end of Gift Hill lane with 24 acres of undeveloped land in front of us as we look across the Caribbean sea. The vista the quiet and privacy are one of the best on St.John.

Our family had a wonderful vacation in St. John. We enjoyed the beaches, the boating, the snorkeling. My favorite part of the whole vacation, though, was waking up to the amazing views and especially sitting in the gazebo or eating dinner as the sun went down. And the house itself was perfect - spacious, well equipped, beautifully decorated, quiet. Our greeter, Winnie, was so kind and helpful! Thank you Alyce and Paul for sharing your spectacular home with us!
SeaSwan was a fantastic place to stay. The view is incomparable and the patio was a daily pleasure, from the quiet mountain breeze and rooster crows in the morning to the spectacular sunsets in the evening (not to mention the special treat of fireworks on July 4th). Alyce was a very attentive host and our greeter Jamie went out of her way to acclimate us and give us great snorkeling tips. The villa is spacious and quaint and everything you need from coolers to beach chairs and umbrella are provided. The only challenge was learning how to back into the parking space, but that's just the way it is on St. John! Would go back in a heartbeat.
My husband and I had the most AMAZING week at Seaswan! The Villa is located in the perfect spot on the island, right in the middle! Making it easy to explore. We absolutely love Saint John and all it has to offer & this Villa only made our stay that much better. Seaswan is clean, spacious, & comfortable with the most gorgeous views! Winnie and Alyce are so lovely & helpful! We look forward to staying here again! :) Thank you for the amazing hospitality!!
So glad to hear your family enjoyed our home and had a great week on St. John. Thank you for sharing your thoughts it's great to hear!
All the Best,
Alyce & Paul
The Seaswan is a beautiful home located on Gifft Hill overlooking St Thomas! My family and I had a wonderful stay. The house and outside living area are absolutely gorgeous and the views are breathtaking. The house is very well appointed and comes with everything you would need to feel at home and enjoy outdoor living. I highly recommend this home to anyone who is considering staying there. We will definitely be back next year! Such a beautiful place to be it was hard for us to leave!
Thanks so much for sharing your SeaSwan experience. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and we never get tired of compliments about our home.
Thanks so much,
Alyce & Paul
Love St John
We have been to the island several times and it never disappoints! Seaswan is in a great location to access north side beaches and east end. Close to Cruz Bay for shopping and restaurants.
Loved the outdoor areas of the home. Good communication from owner and her assistant on the island. Lots of towels and 4 beach chairs, and the umbrella was a plus.
Only improvements to be made are the mattresses in loft area, and bed linens in master. Otherwise, perfect in every way!
This is truly a one of a kind property with perhaps the most spectacular view on the island . The house is very stylish , clean and well stocked with all the essentials you would ever need . Alyce provided a wonderful welcome basket of food and drink for our arrival . We were greeted by Winnie who rode with us on the ferry from st thomas . She is wonderful person who assisted us with our rental jeep and the guided us to the house .she truly made us feel like part of the St. John family .
The house has all the modern amenities, well located and extremely well maintained. This was our second stay at this property and I'm sure there will be many more . I felt like a king for week as I sat out on the patio at night gazing at the lights of St Thomas enjoying my cold beverage . If you have the opportunity to stay at this property , do not pass it up . You will not be disappointed!! Thank you Alyce and Paul
Dear Wendy and Tom, It is such a pleasure to have you return and so glad you enjoyed our home. Thank you for sharing your experience. After the difficult Boston winter we’re glad you could really relax and enjoy the view.
Have a great year.
Alyce & Paul
