Description of Great View
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 villa is situated all on one level. Adjacent to the carport below the villa is a gated entryway and a brick staircase leading up to Great View. 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 or airbeds.
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 pool, complete this perfect place to gather and relax. Great View's pool may be heated for your stay on arrival at an additional charge of $600 per week.
This popular villa is surrounded by lush manicured landscaping; it's just a convenient short drive from Great View to The Ritz-Carlton Club and Hotel down the road, to several excellent beaches and just a few minutes further to Red Hook for shopping, restaurants, watersports and day sails, or for the ferries to St. John and Tortola.
