Perfect for couples, Drupe at Seashore Allure on St. John's is the Caribbean getaway you've been dreaming about. Part of a small complex of condos, Drupe has tasteful furnishings and incredible views of the sea and nearby islands. Its location on the outskirts of Cruz Bay means it's just a short walk from the condo to town, where you'll find lots of dining and entertainment options. Or, you can choose to stay and relax at the condo complex, with its large community pool and hot tub. You don't have to worry about crowds, either, as the complex only has eight condos total. This means that your vacation will have a feeling of peace, privacy, and hard-earned relaxation.
Resort Villa Description
Recently completed in late 2010 and on the outskirts of Cruz Bay, Seashore Allure is a luxurious yet small and intimate complex offering just eight stunning, soundproofed condo units. From its waterfront location on Turner Bay, Seashore Allure enjoys ocean views with the islands of Little and Great St. James in the distance.
Situated side-by-side on Seashore Allure's main level are four stylish one-bedroom units, all with central air-conditioning and spacious king bedroom/bath suites. This one-bedroom condo, Drupe, has Brazilian hardwood flooring and maple cabinetry that attests Drupe's elegant and modern furnishings, artistic lighting and its well-designed floor plan. The fully-equipped kitchen features a glass cook top, stainless steel appliances, and has just about everything you'll need to create a meal or late-night snack.
The king bedroom and ensuite bath invite romance and relaxation. The adjoining bath has travertine tile with a granite countertop. The bath offers a magnifying mirror, a bidet, and an ample shower with a rain shower inset into the ceiling and body spray shower on the side.
Step outside to Drupe's private verandah with comfortable seating. It runs the length of the unit and overlooks the pool and Turner Bay. The verandah's glass half-walls allow continuous viewing from their shady private spot, perfect for reading, admiring the ocean view, or for evening cocktails. Should friends wish to have their own accommodations, they can rent the unit right next door, and with advance request, guests can get a key to the door connecting both private verandahs so they can visit each other freely.
Steps from the door, Seashore Allure's pool and entertainment area allow all guests to hang out. The pool, set into a stone terrace, gets sun all day long. Nearby is a thatched pavilion which offers a shaded area with a gas grill and a 46-inch satellite TV, and there are tables for alfresco dining. There's also a convenient powder room. At the very top of Seashore Allure is a spiral staircase which leads up to a partially-roofed patio and the complex's large hot tub and lounge area. A stone archway frames the picture-perfect ocean view seen from this level. On the premises is also the condo office, where guests can do their laundry, get information and assistance, and use the printer to print out boarding passes.
A flat walking path from Seashore Allure takes guests through a local neighborhood and a nature preserve into Cruz Bay in about 10 minutes, for shopping, dining, bars and nightlife (or drive into Cruz Bay in two minutes). And it's only a short drive to St. John's spectacular National Park beaches. Seashore Allure is an excellent choice for a Virgin Islands vacation and for honeymooners, both young and old. It is highly recommended.
