Tastefully decorated in pinks, pastels, and the colors of the Caribbean, Azula Vista on St. Thomas is an ideal retreat for families. With four bedrooms and five bathrooms, there is plenty of space to enjoy each others company and then spend some private time alone as well. It provides a living area that includes a cathedral ceiling, glass walls, and a dining alcove that seats eight. This villa has a casual charm with comfortable furnishings. It also has a built-in charcoal grill near the pool and garden area, which makes it easy and fun to grill out as often as you would like. Azula Vista Villa is located in a terrific spot that is close to beaches and water sports activities when you want to fill your days with sand, sea, and sun. You can reach jet-skis and kayaks via just a short drive; there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Built on three levels with a very large pool, this villa has lots of room for everyone. A garden walkway brings guests into a semi-covered lanai, separating Azula Vista's two pavilions on the main level. The L-shaped lanai has a bar with mini-fridge and cushioned sofas and chairs set along the shady covered veranda, with arches framing a picture-perfect view of nearby Secret Harbour Resort and Beach.
One pavilion houses a living area with a cathedral ceiling, glass slider walls on two sides, and through an archway, a dining alcove. The dining alcove seats 8 at the table, and counter stools with seating for two more by the handy pass-through to the kitchen. The villa is equipped with high-speed internet access and Wi-Fi. The gourmet kitchen features lots of counter space done in granite, stainless steel appliances, and a broad array of small appliances, utensils and cookware, should guests be in the mood to create a festive island meal. A handy desk with a phone and Wi-Fi for your laptop and the laundry room share space with the kitchen.
Across the lanai in Azula Vista's second main-level pavilion are two air-conditioned bedrooms with full en-suite baths with a powder room between them. The master suite features a four-poster king bed. Next door is a suite with two twins (which can be converted to a king bed with your advance request). Exterior stairways on either side of Azula Vista take you to one of the villa's favorite spots for family fun in the sun (for small children's safety, access to the mid-level Garden Suites and the pool is gated off from these stairs).
On Azula Vista's Garden Level are two more fully air-conditioned suites. The West Bedroom Suite is a large, fully air-conditioned apartment offering a separate living and dining area with two sofa beds (a twin and a queen-size), a full kitchen, and a king bedroom with full bath. Next to it is the East Studio Suite, another roomy air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suite with a full size sleeper sofa and a full-size refrigerator, microwave, toaster, and coffeemaker. These two Garden Level suites offer private accommodations for extended families and friends traveling together.
Below, the third level offers the pool and a covered outdoor entertainment area equipped with a gas grill, wet bar and mini-fridge and a second convenient powder room. A few steps from the entertainment patio is Azula Vista's pride and joy: a swimming pool, with a tiled sun deck fringed with palm trees the whole family will enjoy. The deck is completed with chaise lounges, an outdoor shower, and another outdoor dining area on the sun deck. A built-in charcoal grill in the garden just off the pool deck is accessed through a gate, should guests need a second grill.
Azula Vista is a casual and comfortable home for all ages, but offers some special extras such as the wonderful kitchen, original island art throughout, a big selection of over 100 movies for all ages, and that wonderful pool. Its desirable East End location is very close to several excellent white sand beaches and water sports, from day sails and diving to parasailing, jet skiing and kayaking-just a few minutes' drive will get guests to something new to do or see every day. The ocean view fades as the sun sets, and sunsets mark the end of each sun-filled day. Azula Vista (which means "blue view") offers much to extended family and friends who are seeking quality time together in a well-located, comfortable, and well-equipped home.
