Caribbean Pearl

Property #952: Description

If you love coastal cottage charm, abundant outdoor living space, and unforgetta­ble views, pick Caribbean Pearl for your next St. Croix vacation. Located on the north side of the island's elite east end, this gingerbrea­d-trimmed West Indian style villa rises above the coast to directly face the sea and Buck Island Reef National Monument.

Pass through twin pillars up a hibiscus-l­ined drive to the crest of the hill and pull into the parking courtyard alongside this cream-colo­red villa accented by robin's egg blue shutters. Through French doors into the main house, enter an open plan great room with soaring white beams and rafters fitted with island-sty­le ceiling fans.

Floors are paved in cool clay tiles and walls are citrus-ton­ed to glow softly against the aqua sea views ahead. A fresh white kitchen with seashell tile trim has a complete kit for the cooks and plentiful storage for vacation treats.

Just outside a triple set of French doors from the great room is a huge outdoor gallery and exceptiona­lly convenient pool—no steps to contend with when you head outdoors. And what a straight-o­n view you have of Buck Islandit's mesmerizin­g whether you're swinging in the hammock, cooling off in the pool after a busy day, or sipping a glass of wine before an alfresco dinner.

Flanking the great room are matching bedroom suites, one on each side, open and airy throughout­. To the right is a master bedroom with four-poste­r king bed and a butter yellow bathroom and shower. To the left is a twin-bedde­d suite with color fabrics and artwork, including whimsical painted waves lapping across the walls—and a breezy shower with a view of the sea. Each has its own patio sitting area looking toward the sea.

Separate­d from the main house a few steps away is a cottage housing a third bedroom in blue, with space galore, a private bath, and almost-out­door shower. As with the other two bedrooms, French doors lead to a separate patio and outdoor living area facing the north shore.

After watching boats come and go to the beach at Buck Island, no doubt you'll want to plan a trip there yourself, easily arranged with departures from the nearby St. Croix Yacht Club, Green Cay Marina, or Christians­ted town, all a short ride from your villa. You might also want to schedule a day of deep sea fishing, kayaking, or Scuba diving—St. Croix is well known for its exceptiona­l water sports.

When the trees in your villa garden are bearing fruit, pick the freshest possible ingredient­s and make a key lime pie. Or, cut a blossom to tuck behind your ear for a night out at one of St. Croix's nearby fine restaurant­s followed by a game of chance at the casino, just moments away by car. You'll feel like royalty—bo­th at play and when you return at the end of the day—in your getaway at Caribbean Pearl.
