The mezzanine connects to the Great Room via a graceful curving staircase and leads into the well-equipped kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances; the kitchen looks out to the sea view. Adjacent to the kitchen is a covered pavilion with a glass-and-stone table for outside dining. From this cool, open-air pavilion, a walkway leads to a classic West Indian welcoming-arms staircase, which descends between planters filled with palms, colorful bird of paradise, ixora, ginger, and bougainvillea, to the tiled sun terrace and solar-heated pool.
The pool terrace, set with chaise lounges for tanning, overlooks sweeping views of the white sands of Long Bay Beach below and far beyond to Jost Van Dyke. It is perfect place for lazy daydreaming, sunset cocktails, and for stargazing at night. There is an outdoor shower on this terrace for convenient after-beach rinse-offs.
