Overview

Cruz Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

A 3 bedroom, 3 bath, full a/c, pool, very private, great views and furnishings!

LOCATION.

Seawind is located on a secluded and quiet hillside lot in Chocolate Hole with scenic south - southwest facing views of Chocolate Hole and Hart Bay. This location is just a 5-minute drive on paved roads to the restaurants, groceries and nightlife of Cruz Bay!



My villa is true rendition of the traditional Caribbean architecture, with four hip roofed buildings that are connected by decks, covered walkways and patios.

A new expanded tile deck and railing will be erected and completed on, or by, November 1st, 2014! This new deck area will be just what the villa needs; an expansive area to sunbathe, entertain, star gaze. In addition, as always, AL-fresco dinning is a must!

(Please check back for new pictures as well as new amenities, which will enhance your stay at Seawind)

All rooms except the guest (loft) bedroom are on the pool level. The air-conditioned great house, with a vaulted 25-foot beamed cathedral ceiling, contains the great room, an interior dining area and a loft bedroom and Bathroom. The Bathroom is unique because it has something that is quite rare in a Villa: A full size bathtub to soak in!!!!

The granite and mahogany kitchen is attached to the great house and is also air-conditioned.

The two a/c adjoining master bedrooms are on the south (left) side of the pool. Temperature controlled rooms, exposed beam ceilings, multiple ceiling fans, screened sliding windows, Terra-cotta tiled floors throughout and beautiful landscaping provide an inviting and relaxing tropical atmosphere in this well furnished, very charming home.

LIVING/DINNING.

The well appointed, a/c living area has every amenity. It features furniture from Bali that is comfortable and cozy. You will find that the room is accented by local St. John artist paintings. Each painting tells a story and is a true representation of the beauty of St. John. Entertainment includes a HD cable TV/DVD with surround sound with stereo /CD. The deck off the great room is terra cotta tiled and includes retractable awnings that allow you to relax in the sun or the shade. You may choose from four dining areas, inside at the teak table for 4-6 in the great room, or outside on the deck off the kitchen at a table for 8. There is the bar/island in the kitchen, which is a great place to congregate for lunch or drinks.

KITCHEN.

The large, bright, air conditioned, granite and mahogany kitchen is a chef's delight. It includes a tiled bar/center island with bar chairs, a 4-burner gas stove and Convection oven, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, blender, coffeemaker, double filtered and ozonated water, a telephone and a complete assortment of dinnerware and cookware and a washer/dryer.

BEDROOMS.

Both air-conditioned master bedrooms have a cozy and romantic décor. Both are furnished with king beds, nightstands, lamps, artwork, accessories, and a hanging closet, and both have French doors that open to ocean views. Both master bedrooms have fully tiled baths and showers, linen closets and a locking safe.

Both master bath are fully tiled, with the main master encased in native stone wall with dual shower heads.

The 3rd bedroom is a nicely furnished a/c loft with a queen bed and a tiled bath and shower that is located on the lower level of the great room.

Additional Amenities:

About Curtis Penn

I am from Baltimore and was born in Central New York. If you know Central New York, then you know how cold and miserable the winters are! I came to St. John in 1995 and fell in love with the beauty of the island. I have traveled all over the world and nothing compares to the water, beaches, people and restaurants in St. John!

Curtis Penn purchased this villa in 2001

Why Curtis Penn chose St John

I bought this property because of the amenities as well as the location! It is quiet and private, but only minutes to Cruz bay and the beaches

What makes this villa unique

The views are spectacular! You see Ocean from every room!! At night the stars are bright and the constellations magnificent!

Bucket list trip --Beyond Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, wow, wow! If you're looking for 5 star service and an amazingly relaxed vacation, book this house!! We are a family of 4---children ages 3 and 5-- and were looking for a last minute getaway. The house was more than what we needed for 4 people but it was so worth it! Curtis is the best, along with Myrtle--they are your go-to's for making everything happen and that they do WELL! The pool area is fabulous for all ages, the house and kitchen are perfect in so many ways. We chose the package with the car & gift certificates and then ended up adding on the boat trip with Curtis which was one of our trip highlights!! (Curtis is great with all ages and makes your day SO SO SO much fun-- a must do!) Book it the house, the car and the boat-- you'll have a trip of a lifetime! :)

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three generations stayed at Seawind for a week and thought it was just great! The property is beautiful and very well maintained. It was wonderful to have everything we needed stocked for us upon arrival. The three children (7, 9, 11) loved the pool and spent every possible moment swimming. The villa is close to Cruz Bay and to the beaches. Our day with Curtis at the helm was a real treat! Curtis was wonderful with kids, as well as the adults, and took us to great snorkeling spots, great restaurants for lunch and dinner, and tranquil beaches. He arranged a car rental and also someone to pick us up and take us back to the airport which was so helpful. We appreciated the restaurant recommendations...especially ZoZo's which was outstanding. Curtis certainly added to our enjoyment of Seawind, St. John and the surrounding islands. We loved our stay at Seawind and would heartily recommend the villa to vacationers on the island. And we would certainly love to go back.

Seawind and Curtis are great!!

  • 5 of 5

A great property. Excellent attention to detail in the construction and furnishings. Great location, easy drive to town.

Central A/C is hard to find on STJ, this property has it!!

The best part of renting Seawind is Curtis Penn, the property manager. I was skeptical about the gold and silver etc options. But it worked out great. Curtis arranged everything and it was all better than promised. We opted for silver level which was a great deal, we would have paid more for a car if we did it on our own. And the restaurant gift certificates were a great deal too. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Seawind again and will definitely use Curtis as a property manager and vacation guide. He's awesome!!!

This is an outstanding property. Layout of house provides ample room for group gathering but also affords privacy when that is wanted. Great kitchen, far better supplied than many rentals I've been in. Most wonderfully, though the house is 5 minutes from Cruz Bay, it's so quiet in the mornings and evenings that you'll think you're the only one on the island. Curtis is warm, knowledgeable, and responsive--a great bonus with this property. He arranged all our transfers and car rental, and everything went like clockwork. (*Don't miss the opportunity to spend a day with him in the BVI on his marvelous boat!)

spectacular!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Seawind for 9 days in April 2015. We were there for a destination wedding and we hosted the grooms dinner. Everyone there raved about the beautiful villa and the fantastic views. Everything that was included and the pictures of the villa was as shown. Curtis was a delight and was there when we had questions or requests. Would go back in a heartbeat!! Truly Spectacular!!!

Sea Wind is terrific

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a really fun vacation in March at Sea Wind. It's really one of the nicest vacation homes we've ever stayed in. It's very clean and tastefully appointed. The kitchen is completely modern, the view is perfect, it's centrally located near Cruz Bay. There are beach chairs and coolers. Get the silver plan, it comes with a jeep and gift cert. to some really nice restuarants. The manager did everything they said they'd do and really took care of us. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. You'll hear the wild rooster in the morning but you'll love the place so much, you won't even care.
