Air-conditioned throughout, guests can relax outdoors on terraces and patios surrounded by refreshing sea breezes. Miramar is found in the beautiful Estate Solitude on the northeast shore of St. Croix. Guests enter to a columned portico and fountain, and the mansion’s 2400 square foot Great Room. The Great Room is beautifully enhanced by sparkling crystal chandeliers, sculpture and superb lighting throughout, with unobstructed and breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and nearby Buck Island. The Great Room’s high-coffered ceilings are supported by grand columns that run down to Italian marble floors, accented with oriental area rugs. A lavish living room area features a 70-inch LED television with surround sound. The Great Room also features a formal dining area, an 18-foot granite-topped wet bar with an ice maker and beverage coolers, which looks out to sea, and an impressive gourmet kitchen. There's also a Yamaha electronic piano for your entertainment. The kitchen contains black granite countertops and custom cabinetry, well designed and complete with warming drawers. It is impressively equipped with top Wolf, Sub-Zero and Asko appliances and a bounty of cook's tools. Just off the dining area and kitchen, through arched doorways, are the powder room and laundry. Miramar’s heated pool and sun terrace are found outside the French doors on either side of the bar. Cushioned patio furniture; chairs, tables, and a large coral-stone outdoor dining table are placed under a columned shady covered area, perfect for alfresco dining and cocktails with music, and a stone and stainless steel gas grill. There's also abundant space to relax outside the shade, on cushioned pool chairs and lounges. Sunbathers will relish under the blue sky facing the blue sea, with unparalleled views of famous Buck Island in the near distance, and the parade of passing pelicans, yachts and kite surfers. Miramar's east wing is the air-conditioned king master suite, a spacious room with a sitting area and more delightful ocean and Buck Island views. The ensuite bath of this lavish room features separate 'his and hers' vanities and enclosed water closets, dressing areas and custom walk-in closets with many drawers and endless space. 'His and hers' areas are separated by a central glassed-in shower and a jacuzzi bathtub. Several French doors lead directly to the pool terrace outside. Stairs descend from the master suite within Miramar's east wing to two king bedrooms with satellite TV and a large bedroom with two poster queen beds, all air-conditioned. Both of the two king bedrooms offer delightful sea views and in-suite baths and/o shower with separate toilets. The first king bed has an inlaid wood headboard, and the second king bed features a scrolled metal bedstead. The three bedrooms share a two level patio just outside their French doors, overlooking a varied and picturesque arrangement of native flowers and plants, as well as the clear blue sea. A few more stairs brings you down to Miramar's air-conditioned gym with satellite TV; cushioned rubber flooring and a NordicTrack treadmill, elliptical strider and recumbent bicycle; free weights and versatile exercise bench. Once again, you'll hardly notice time passing with the striking ocean and Buck Island views before you, and satellite TV. In the west wing of Miramar’s main level is the second king master bedroom. This suite is air-conditioned with an expansive ocean-view and features a sunken living area with satellite TV, and French doors, which open directly to the pool and terrace. The in-suite bath has double vanity sinks, a glassed-in shower stall, a Jacuzzi tub, and a separate WC. Adjacent to the second master suite is an elegant library/office with a generous library of books and a cozy sitting area for leisure. Expansive Miramar showcases creative design and rooms always oriented to the sea. Elaborate French doors with artfully framed eyebrow windows accentuate the breathtaking sea views and smart louvered wood panels in every room slide back and forth at a touch to perfectly adjust the natural light to your taste. Craftsman-quality custom cabinetry and tile work in addition to colorful original art and stunning designer furnishings throughout the mansion elevate this substantial property to an impressive and finely finished level. Gold fixtures and Miramar-monogrammed towels and bathrobes adorn each bath. For luxury travelers looking for a luxurious vacation experience with a bounty of amenities and comfort in a secluded and sublime location landscaped with rich tropical flora, superb Miramar is THE villa choice on St. Croix and the U.S. Virgin Islands ...five stars, plus!More

About the neighbourhood
Located in St. Croix's preferred East End, Miramar sits on a seaside bluff with expansive views of the sea, and the preferred view of Buck Island from every living area, bedroom, deck, pool and patio areas. Adjacent to Solitude beach, Miramar is located near multiple other pristine beaches. The Buccaneer Hotel is 10 minutes away and guests commonly access their facilities including main and beach restaurants, beach, golf and tennis. Christiansted with shopping and fine dining is another five minutes in the same direction.
Getting around
A rental car is the best solution for total freedom and access to all St. Croix destinations. If this is not practical then taxis can be called or a private taxi can be made available.
