Holiday Rental House
One could not imagine a more glorious view than the one from the elegant perch of La Mer. This stucco mediterranean 4 bedroom villa rises up from the hillside of Bordeaux Mountain on unspoiled St. John. From this incredible perch, you are as high as you can get without being a bird in flight. Views extend from Jost Van Dyke and Sandy Cay to the North to Virgin Gorda, all the way down the string of pearls known as the Virgin Islands. This new 4 bedroom luxury home is located down a private paved road that is heavily shaded with tropical trees and fauna. The glamorous house is tastefully appointed with original artwork and exotic elements such as bamboo stakes held in urns, African sculpture, and bronze herons. The thoughtful design creates harmony between the indoor and outdoor space and en...One could not imagine a more glorious view than the one from the elegant perch of La Mer. This stucco mediterranean 4 bedroom villa rises up from the hillside of Bordeaux Mountain on unspoiled St. John. From this incredible perch, you are as high as you can get without being a bird in flight. Views extend from Jost Van Dyke and Sandy Cay to the North to Virgin Gorda, all the way down the string of pearls known as the Virgin Islands. This new 4 bedroom luxury home is located down a private paved road that is heavily shaded with tropical trees and fauna. The glamorous house is tastefully appointed with original artwork and exotic elements such as bamboo stakes held in urns, African sculpture, and bronze herons. The thoughtful design creates harmony between the indoor and outdoor space and enhances the romance of the spectacular setting. The inviting pool is set in a sheltered courtyard between two pods. It opens into the breathtaking views and offers a cool retreat after a day on one of St. John's glorious beaches and is also a great place to soak and stargaze on balmy nights. This designer decorated home offers glorious surprises at every turn. At once inviting and exotic, with a lush, rich color scheme set off by light bamboo furnishings, this home offers a king size four poster bed in the master bedroom and a gorgeous stone shower large enough for two, offering views all the way to Virgin Gorda. The other 3 bedrooms offer equally appealing furnishings and baths and all have magnificent views. The kitchen is a gourmet's delight with beautiful custom ash cabinetry, granite countertops, and an island bar large enough for an indoor meal. The room opens up with large doors onto a covered balcony with a dining table and comfortable seating. The view is spellbinding. The color scheme and furnishings throughout the house create a sensual aura that blends effortlessly with the tropical surroundings. The breakfast bar invites casual meals and company around the kitchen. It is at once elegant and comfortable. The traditional Caribbean style great room encompasses the kitchen, sitting area and breakfast bar. it opens, with large doors, onto a balcony with a dining table. The living area in the great room opens onto the balcony, and beyond... With a choice of three separate eating areas and a gourmet kitchen, planning a meal and setting the stage is as much of a joy as sitting down to enjoy it. The melon stucco and mediterranean tiled courtyard achieves elegance, glamour and harmony with the natural surroundings. Semi-private spaces and eating areas invite guests to relax. La Mer easily sleeps up to 10 persons but is as wonderful for a romantic escape for two as it is for a large group of friends. This is a non smoking home and is not ideal for small children. It is, however, everything that we promise and more... The lower level queen bedroom is surrounded by light and glorious views. All of the bedrooms are elegantly appointed with details of warmth and luxury. They have ceiling fans and private bathrooms with stone showers. The pool level bedroom on the south side of the house is furnished with two trundle beds, providing comfortable sleeping quarters for up to four children and doubling as a family sitting room, and a cool retreat from the sunny pool deck. The upstairs queen bedroom is open to fabulous views. Like all of the bedrooms, it has a private balcony with comfortable chairs. The bedrooms are as generous in space and luxury as 5-star retreat.

La Mer is a beautiful home. It is on Coral Bay, on the far side of the island. Way, way up on the top of a hill. The view is outstanding. The house is very interestingly constructed: it's three pods that are connected via patios....More
