Le Lapin II Villa is located high up on a hillside, and enjoys panoramic views of Hart Bay, Rendevous Bay, and the south shore of St. John. Here guests are able to take in this vast ocean span and still hear the surf below - a most unusual and spectacular feature of this home away from home. This four bedroom villa is a perfect family getaway. The pool area is gated, which is a nice safety feature for families with young children. And with such an elevated and private location, you can sunbathe from sunup to sundown and end the day with magnificent sunsets!
Le Lapin II is located in Hart Bay on the top of the largest hill separating Hart Bay from Chocolate Hole. Le Lapin sits above the beach at Hart Bay in a private and very quiet spot with outstanding 300-degree views, including magnificent sunrises and sunsets. This is the highest elevation of any of our Hart Bay homes and the splendid views include Hart Bay, Rendezvous Bay, the south shore of St. John, Chocolate Hole, Pillsbury Sound, and on out to the island of St. Thomas. It's a 10 minute drive into Cruz Bay on mostly paved roads.
DESIGN: Le Lapin is a 2-level home that has the kitchen, living areas and 2 bedrooms on the lower level, while two large master bedrooms are accessed by interior stairs on the upper level. There are unique wrap-around decks and covered porches on both levels. The 34x12' pool is surrounded by a beautiful tiled sundeck and colorful tropical landscaping. The pool and sundeck are located on the less windy, west side of the house where the sun shines from sunup to sundown.
Even though Le Lapin is a south facing home, its unique design keeps the house surprisingly cool and comfortable, even in the warmest summer months. At night the pool stays inviting, while the lights of St. Thomas twinkle in the distance.
LIVING/DINING: The living and dining areas capture east and west views through screened sliding glass doors. The living room includes a cable TV/VCR and a stereo/cassette/CD. Guests may dine inside at a teak table that seats 6-8, or outside on the covered deck overlooking the pool (also at a teak table for 6-8).
KITCHEN: The kitchen is both handsome and functional, with granite countertops, mahogany cabinets, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, etc., 4 burner stove and oven, refrigerator/freezer, telephone and complete dinnerware, cookware and utensils. Guests also have access to a washer/dryer.
BEDROOMS: The lower level bedrooms have twin beds that convert to king beds, while the large master bedrooms on the upper level both have king beds. All 4 bedrooms have air conditioning, tiled baths and showers, walk-in closets and views of Hart Bay through screened sliding glass doors.
