Due to its architectural significance, Estate Belvedere has a very naturalistic flare, and is well-suited for up to five couples to enjoy. Because of this, it is a good place to have a special event. Guests could enjoy board games and barbeque, allow use of the on-site fitness equipment, or let kids and grown-ups alike spend time in the pool. Once the event's over, the vacation residents can make use of the hammock, spend time overlooking the North Shore, or taking a drive down to the beach to enjoy spending time with each other at their vacation destination.
Estate Belvedere emerges from an expansive two-year renovation to blend old world elegance with ultra modern conveniences. Attention to detail has been afforded to every aspect of the estate, while maintaining the historical features of the original architecture. This is a terrific property, ideal for a large group or family gathering.
Originally built in 1791, the sugar mill has been transformed into an extensive three-bedroom, four-bath, main house featuring a library and fully appointed gourmet kitchen with a fresh herb garden steps away.
Located on the north shore in a nice area of St. Croix, this totally private estate is spread over three and one-half acres of shaded gardens, multi-level terraces, and historical ruins.
The surrounding patios are embraced by tropical vegetation, cool breezes, and Caribbean Sea views. The sugar mill further offers a rooftop hideaway for private sunbathing or stargazing.
The 300-year-old ruins of the original master's home provide a picturesque setting for relaxing amid flowering hibiscus and bougainvillea. The main house sleeps 6 with 2 king bedrooms and a queen bedroom.
Across the well-tended lawn, past the courtyard fountain, is a two-story guesthouse with two complete suites. Each unit has two queen-size beds, a full kitchen, and full bath sleeping up to 8 guests comfortably.
A detached cottage sleeps 2 with a king bed. There is also plenty of room for a few cots for extra children.
Estate Belvedere offers one of the largest private pools on the island. The huge and extremely secluded 20-foot by 40-foot pool is surrounded by terraced gardens of tropical flowers and shade trees.
