Description of Great View (6 bedrooms)
Tucked into a cul-de-sac at the end of a private neighborhood road on St. Thomas's east end, charming Great View is aptly named. From Great View's front tiled patio overlooking Red Hook and St. John to the scenic pool deck, wonderful ocean views and cooling tradewinds abound. This comfortable home is conveniently laid out on two levels. Adjacent to the carport below the villa is a gated entryway and a brick staircase leading up to Great View's Main Level. The entry door opens into the high-ceilinged Great Room and its two walls of glass sliders which bring the island's tropical splendor right inside. On one end of the Great Room is the spacious kitchen and a half bath, and adjoining is a large den, with a convenient home office with DSL or Wi-Fi connection for your laptop, and a fax machine. The den/office may be partitioned off with shutters on tracks at any time to make an extra bedroom with a queen sofabed.
On the other side of the Great Room are three air-conditioned bedrooms. The king master bedroom suite leads to the second and third bedroom suites (one bedroom with a queen and the other with two twin beds) just beyond; all three suites open to the beautiful pool and sun deck just outside. The large pool area is the heart of this lovely property, offering plenty of space for sunbathing and some shaded areas for a nap, and sublime views of the island and sea; a wet bar with mini-fridge and ice maker, and a bubbling fountain flowing into the generous pool, complete this perfect place to gather and relax. Great View's pool may be heated for your stay on arrivall at an additional charge of $600 per week.
On Great View's Lower Level, accessed via an exterior walkway, are three more air-conditioned bedrooms (two queens and a two-twin bedroom), two with satellite TV, and two baths. From one of the queen bedrooms is a balcony overlooking the gardens, set with a table and chairs. A pool table is set up in the center of things, perfect for family fun - or watch TV and movies in the lower lounge, with a kitchenette just next to the lounge, equipped with a full refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, sink and counter with stools for handy snacks and simple, private meals.
