Description of Villa Nonna
Surrounded by spectacular National Park beaches on St. John's north shore, Villa Nonna is set into a private and lushly-landscaped hillside behind an electronic gate, and offers wide-angled ocean views. As you enter the seclusion of Villa Nonna's stylish vaulted interior, a mesmerizing postcard panorama of azure ocean and sky will stop you in your tracks. Breathtaking! This just-completed five-bedroom luxury villa, sequestered within exclusive Upper Peter Bay, is a most impressive addition to our St. John luxury villa portfolio.
A classic St. John stone, brick and shell archway welcomes you into Villa Nonna's gallery foyer, which looks down into the Great Room's living, dining and kitchen areas. A custom mahogany staircase descends to the spacious, high-ceilinged Great Room.
One end of the spacious Great Room offers a leather sink-into leather sectional sofa, desk, game table and a media center with a 55-inch Bravia TV. At the other end is the large gourmet kitchen, adjacent to the formal dining area with a dining table which seats ten. The kitchen is superb, showcasing granite countertops embellished with graceful columns, stainless steel Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, a bar with an icemaker, and custom mahogany cabinetry accented with woven rattan. The woven rattan also covers the coffered ceilings, giving the large Great Room a lovely tropical aura. Arched mahogany-trimmed windows and doors bring the blue sea views right inside.
On two sides of the Great Room are tall screened french doors topped with eyebrow windows which open out to a terrace fronting the house. The terrace, set with chaise lounges and tables, overlooks amazing long-distance ocean and island views; at the end of a perfect low-idle day, you can also savor colorful island sunsets. Off the kitchen the terrace is roofed, sheltered for shady alfresco dining with a view and offering a convenient gas grill.
Just outside of the living area is Villa Nonna's outdoor lounge area, a roofed open-air area set with cushioned sofa and chairs, a wet bar, a pool table and a convenient powder room nearby. Adjacent is the built-in hot tub and the swimming pool with a brick deck and chaise lounges, secluded within tropical gardens behind a high stone wall - relaxing outdoor living perfected!
Villa Nonna features central air-conditioning throughout, along with a generous number of ceiling fans, should the cooling tradewinds from the east ever falter.
On the entry level is the small children's room furnished with two bunk beds, a twin trundle bed and Dish Network TV and XBConnect with games. Above, on Villa Nonna's second level via a handsome mahogany staircase, are three more beautifully-furnished air-conditioned bedroom suites, all featuring romantic four-poster beds. The easternmost suite offers a king bed, a sofa that pulls out to a queen sofabed, an ensuite bath with granite counter, a tiled shower accessed through french doors and its own private patio. The middle suite has a queen bed, a twin daybed, an adjacent tiled bath and a step-out balcony outside through french doors. The third bedroom suite is in its own separate pavilion, accessed on the second level via a covered walkway; it features a king bed and a small twin pull-out for a small child, both a step-out balcony and a private patio, and an ensuite bath with a roofed alfresco shower.
A few more stairs bring you up to Villa Nonna's very private master suite, an alluring room at the top with rich polished mahogany flooring, a queen four-poster bed, a comfy sofa, tiled indoor and outdoor showers, a separate WC with bidet, and two patios with chairs and tables from which to enjoy the spectacular views for two.
Villa Nonna is designer-furnished in sophisticated elegance and grand comfort, offering luxurious island style and plentiful amenities. Its unique design provides a pleasing balance of bountiful space and privacy, and it has been finished and equipped to a very high standard. Villa Nonna is the ideal home in which to relax and gather to discuss the day's pleasures before sitting down to dinner together. Relax and watch yet another glorious tropical sunset together, icy drink in hand.
Although in an exclusive residential neighborhood and well located only minutes from St. John's legendary National Park beaches and just a short drive to Cruz Bay, Villa Nonna enjoys privacy from surrounding homes in its own secluded world, inspiring romance and quality time with family and friends. Don't miss the special and ultra-luxurious island experience Villa Nonna offers with such stylish panache - unequivocally five stars!

As is true in any popular destination, construction of a new home has begun about 200 yards below and to the right of Villa Nonna. As of winter 2014, although the building site cannot be seen from Villa Nonna, we do anticipate some construction noise. If you would like further details on the current status of this building activity, please inquire and we'll be happy to obtain the latest information for you.
