Private and beautiful are two words that perfectly describe Bombalassy Villa. Set on a hillside overlooking Great Cruz Bay, you are totally secluded with the exception of one other villa located on the property. This home is reasonably priced for all the amenities it has to offer. With two bedrooms this is a great locale for two couples to enjoy a beach getaway. The infinity pool is relaxing and feels as if you could continue right on into the turquoise waters of the bay below. After you wake up and fix a light breakfast, you can take it out onto the terrace and sit at the table set for four while enjoying the hillside views. St. John has been rated as having the top beaches in the world by many well known travel magazines. While staying at Bombalassy villa, you are conveniently located to Great Cruz Bay, a bustling, busy town where you can rent a car and explore some of these famous beaches.
Bombalassy and it’s neighbor, Pink Conch (together called the Caribbean Sea Shell Villas), are located in a lovely setting overlooking the turquoise waters of Great Cruz Bay, across the harbor from the popular villas Gull Cottage and Splash. On the Bombalassy side of the harbor, most of the very valuable shorefront property is still not developed. Except for Pink Conch, Bombalassy has no abutting neighbors, and it remains peaceful and private. Bombalassy is about 100 feet above sea level and it faces south - southeast with very beautiful harbor views, all day sun, and breezes that are softened by the hills across the harbor. Your view swings from the Westin Resort and the hills of St. John in the east, past St Croix on the far horizon, and on to the harbor and the Caribbean Sea in the south. Despite this tucked away location, you’re less than a 5-minute drive from the restaurants, shops and markets in the lively and quaint town of Cruz Bay.
