A spacious hideaway with great party areas, In the Stars Villa was made for entertaining! The large and open floor plan of the main level is the perfect setting for a get-together or for simply visiting with friends and family after a long day in the sun. The cook can visit while preparing a light supper, and guests can mix and mingle without feeling cramped. If you want to take advantage of the views and the trade winds, just open a few doors and expand the living space out onto the deck. If you feel you must get in a little exercise, the lap pool is at your back door. If you really want to start your day right, grab a cup of coffee, pull up a chaise on the covered deck, and watch the sun come up over Coral Bay.
In the Stars is a 4-bedroom, 4 1/2-bathroom private villa next to the national park in Coral Bay on the Carolina Ridge Top. A few select villas share the views of Carolina Ridge above Coral Bay. Bounded by the VI National Park, the North Shore beaches are quickly accessible, as is Annaberg Plantation and snorkeling in the Leinster Bay/Watermelon Cay areas. Tropical landscaping, year-round trade winds, and creature comforts are the norm. There is quick accessibility to Coral Bay, restaurants, shops, and seasonal night-life.
Guests enter the home through the 20-foot long kitchen, especially designed for chefs and entertainers. Well-supplied and tastefully appointed with cypress cabinetry, granite counters, mahogany crown molding and a spacious breakfast bar, this kitchen is ideal for feeding and entertaining.
The dining room seats 8 and is adjacent to the kitchen, living room, and screened-gallery. Furnished with articles from Africa, In the Stars offers multiple dining and entertainment options on the main and pool level.
The multi-use Great Room is a free-flowing space designed around the view of Coral Bay as is centered with a floor to ceiling native stone archway inspired by Caneel Bay's Turtle Bay Resort. The Great Room contains a dining room and living room serviced by a large open, modern kitchen constructed of beam, stone, and mahogany.
The 25-foot wide, multi-use screened-dining gallery seats 12 and allows everyone an uncompromised view of Coral Bay. This is a great spot to enjoy a cocktail, or to enjoy the tropical breezes and sounds of the island after dark in a comfortable bug-free area.
Walk out onto private sundecks on each side of the gallery overlooking the pool patio area and Coral Bay. Casual built in-seating and sun loungers are perfect for enjoying the St. John weather, your morning coffee, or a private spot to read and relax.
The comfortable living room has TV-cable with a 3-person sofa and 2 large chairs with ottoman and easy access to the kitchen.
Each bedroom has an individual safe, closet, air-conditioning with controls, ceiling fans, and full en-suite baths for privacy. Bedrooms are arranged for privacy and are spacious with vaulted 2-story cypress ceilings, air-conditioning, and direct access to the large sundeck.
The two pool level bedroom suites are equally private, with separate A/C, safes and full-length closets for wedding/formal wear. Each has a full bath w/shower, painted in tropical colors and faux designs.
Each of the en-suite bathrooms have custom cabinetry of cypress, mahogany, and teak, and offer handmade soaps—glycerin for the sinks and exfoliating scrubs for the showers. The bedroom linens are all high thread count with pillow-top mattresses, and the furnishings are mahogany, cypress, and teak.
The open-air loft above the Great Room is a spot to read, relax, or play board games away from the crowd. The queen bed and futon increases sleeping arrangements and has its own half bath.
The primary entertainment and gathering spot is the 1000-square-foot pool deck, with stairs into an 8-foot x10-foot common pool area connected to a 55-foot long lap pool.
Next to the pool, a sliding door leads into the lower living level. The full kitchen is great for poolside snacks, and the nearby poker table (with cards and chips provided) converts to a bumper pool table for lots of fun away from the sun. The poker table also converts to a dining table.
Also on the pool level is a family room which is both spacious and comfortable. Guests can bring their favorite tunes, movies, or games, or rent them at the local video store in Coral Bay.
