Carlisle House has an interior and exterior that has been artistically rendered in such a way that both museum qualities and the comforts of home mix together. Board games will keep the children entertained while you start up the outside barbeque grill, and when you need time to cool off, there's an outdoor shower and satellite TV indoors. The villa looks over the beach since it sits on the hillside, and driving down to the water line doesn't take long at all. If you'd rather not do your own cooking, restaurants are only five minutes away by car, and the evening can be enjoyed in the pool with its artistic ledge.
High on a breezy hillside overlooking the beach and Caribbean Sea below, Carlisle House offers a sweeping view of St. Croix's north shore. Terraced landscaping and a bubbling fountain surrounds this very private home.
The heart of Carlisle House is the large covered verandah with dining table, a gas grill, and outdoor kitchen. French doors usher guests into the cool interiors of this substantial villa furnished in tropical rattan and teak. Floors are cool Saltillo tiles, and bathrooms all offer custom tile and glass brick showers.
Just off the verandah are the villa's well-equipped kitchen, living area, and master bedroom which open to the covered terrace.
Bedroom two, with a queen bed, and bedroom three, with two twins, have individual baths en-suite and are accessed from the deck; they can also easily be made adjoining by unlocking the interior door.
The fourth bedroom/bath suite is an air-conditioned queen bedroom on the second level.
The pool area is reached by steps made from local stone and the vista of ocean views as far as the eye can see continues from the pool deck.
For entertainment and gaming, it's a 5-minute drive from Carlisle House to the Divi Carina Bay Casino. Several restaurants and small grocery stores are a short drive away.
Carlisle House has an apartment located under the house; it is very private with two quiet longtime tenants. Its entrance is camouflaged by landscaping and a privacy gate. The tenants have no access to the pool or grounds thus assuring your complete privacy at the villa.
