Get close to St. John’s abundant natural beauty with this secluded and affordable island home. Just a few minutes’ drive from Cruz Bay, HAIKU is the first architect-designed, traditional Caribbean-style house built on the island. Designed in native West Indian style influenced by the Danish plantation great-houses, Haiku is built on one floor at ground level, it is safe for children and is wheelchair accessible. Entry is through a garden gate beyond which is a covered, open air living/dining room pavilion made from hand laid stone. Island trade winds keep you cool while lounging in the living room, eating at the dining room table, or just enjoying the peace and quiet of the adjoining tiled patio. A garden of native flowers and trees provide shade and quiet not just for you, but for island birds and animals as well. While cooling off in the patio swimming pool, you might spot one of the resident iguanas feeding on the garden flowers.
The two bedrooms with bath are air-conditioned and separated by the living/dining room, allowing for privacy for two couples. A third bedroom is adjacent to the Master suite and perfect for another couple or children. Plus, there is an outdoor shower to wash off all the sand you’ve accumulated from enjoying St. John’s phenomenal beaches.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a four-burner stove, oven, microwave, toaster, blender for cocktails, refrigerator, and plenty of cupboard and counter space. China, glasses, silverware, cooking vessels, and utensils are provided as well as place mats, dish towels, a gas barbeque grill, and other amenities to make cooking easy and fun. A washing machine, dryer, and clothesline are located behind the kitchen. The driveway can easily accommodate two vehicles, so invite new friends over for drinks after dark while marveling at the luminous night sky.
