Amenities appealing to all ages!

This well-equipped luxury home sits in exclusive Peter Bay. Safely located behind Peter Bay's electronic gate, Delfina Villa is distinguished by its five-bedroom, five-bath suites, a gourmet kitchen, an entire level devoted to family entertainment, with the complete residence cooled by central air-conditioning.

Stone pillars invite guests into the large, brick entry courtyard and parking area of Delfina Villa. A few coral stone steps open to the pool, which overlooks views of Peter Bay, National Park lands, and the British Virgin Islands in the distance. Large glass slider doors and screens lead into Delfina's sitting and dining areas on the main level. These pocket doors (which disappear into the walls) allow for true Caribbean indoor-outdoor living by welcoming the cooling island trade winds.

A circular patio is just off the indoor sitting area and is set with cushioned wicker chairs and ottomans for cocktails with a view. On the opposite side of the pool is a shaded wet bar with icemaker and mini-fridge. Here guests can relax on the chaise lounges to visit and sunbathe. There is also a powder room, Jacuzzi hot tub, and a small lawn area with palm trees and a hammock for a tropical nap or two.

Inside, the gourmet kitchen adjoins the dining area where up to 14 guests can dine. Screened French doors lead to the barbecue area equipped with a stainless steel gas grill and a hand-painted Italian stone dining table with umbrella. An alcove off of the kitchen offers a desk with a PC computer, a DSL line for your laptop, telephone and a fax/printer/copier. There is also a pantry and laundry room. Down a few stairs is another convenient powder room, and up a few stairs, a hallway displays photos of St. John and accesses two bedroom/bath suites - the Trunk Bay Suite, done in blue and white, and the Leinster Bay Suite, featuring a citron and black theme. Each suite has its own private covered balcony overlooking scenic Peter Bay set with table and chairs for two, a TV and DVD player, a DSL connection, bathrobes, baths with tiled alfresco showers, mini-fridge, and coffeemaker.

Separating the two suites is a completely-screened lanai - a quiet sitting area with a TV and DVD player which looks out to Delfina Villa's back garden and tall trees.

Above, via another short staircase, is the very private master suite and balcony. The master bath features an onyx countertop, two travertine stone sinks, a separate WC with toilet and bidet, and a walk-in closet. The tiled alfresco shower, big enough for two, looks out to a grove of trees.

Between the villa's main level and the entertainment level are two more bedroom/bath suites connected by a common open-air sitting area which is bordered by gardens and a small lawn. The Bordeaux Suite is done in pale green with a queen four-poster bed, and the pink Coral Bay Suite offers a king four-poster bed. Each of these suites has its own covered balcony, a TV and DVD player, a DSL connection, bathrobes, baths with tiled alfresco showers, and a mini-fridge and coffeemaker.

On Delfina's lowest level, the main room has a pool table, a large circular wet bar of native bluebit stone and granite with barstools, icemaker, mini-fridge and TV, and a full bath with shower. Screened pocket doors open to a wraparound balcony. Adjoining is the media room, with comfortable seating and a 50-inch flat screen HDTV, DVD player, books, board games for all ages, and an extensive collections of movies and music CD's. Next to the media room is another entertainment alcove offering an X-box, an electronic dartboard, pinball machine, TV and DVD player. Here guests will also find a double-twin trundle bed and a queen sofabed - perfect for up to 4 children under 15 years old.
