This unique island home offers 3 air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms, a private swimming pool with waterfall feature, a Jacuzzi hot tub, immaculate and lush tropical landscaping, and 270-degree views of the island and Caribbean Sea.

Luminaria is gated with a spacious floor plan. The Great Room has cathedral ceilings and wall-to-wall sliding glass doors that open onto wraparound decks with views of the Caribbean Sea. Ceiling fans and year round trade winds will keep you cool and comfortable.

The entertainment center includes a Satellite Tivo-style TV, VCR, DVD, CD/cassette, a video library, a wet bar with ice maker, as well as loads of card and board games.

The Relax and Renew area, decorated with comfortable furniture, is a tranquil place that's perfect for reading, quiet reflection, or a mid-afternoon nap.

Luminaria's glass dining table seats 6-8 and overlooks Coral Bay. The large modern gourmet kitchen is equipped for preparing everything from snacks to large meals. A telephone/fax and answering machine are provided, and a washer/dryer and a half-bath are located off of the kitchen. The kitchen opens onto a covered dining veranda for casual meals with a gas barbecue grill, a table for 6, and magnificent sea and island views. A third dining experience can be enjoyed from the wraparound deck on the main level. Down-island views enhance this setting.

A hot tub is also located on this main deck directly off the living room with views of Coral Bay.

The main floor master bedroom has huge picture windows overlooking a tropical garden and the Caribbean Sea. Sliding glass doors open onto a private deck, just right for enjoying the early morning sunrise or a late afternoon cocktail. The king-size bed is comfortable, and there is an adjoining master bath with an oversized shower area.

Downstairs, there is a den and two bedrooms with private baths. The den offers a second entertainment area with satellite TV, DVD, and VCR. It also has a queen sleeper sofa.

Tropical gardens surround the exterior stairway which links the upper deck to the poolside area and lower level bedrooms.

Another king bedroom, called Bliss, has sliding glass doors that open onto a large deck with Coral Bay views.

The third bedroom, Island Dream, reflects Caribbean charm with its cool colors. This bedroom offers pool views and a bed that can be made up as twins or a king. Through the sliding glass doors, you will enjoy immediate pool access.

Each lower level bedroom at Luminaria has an en-suite bathroom with glass block shower and glass tile countertops. The bath connected to Island Dream also has direct pool deck access.

A large patio comes with a wet-bar and fridge to keep beverages handy.

The mountaintop setting and views are considered one of the finest in the Virgin Islands. With Luminaria's extensive sliding glass doors and oversized windows, the views can be enjoyed from practically every room. Luminaria is also in close proximity to North Shore beaches, and only a 20 minute's drive to the Cruz Bay ferry dock. Bounded by the VI National Park, the North Shore beaches are easily accessible, as is Annaberg Plantation and snorkeling in the Leinster Bay/Watermelon Cay areas. Coral Bay is also easily accessible, with its growing number of restaurants, shops, and seasonal night-life. This is a terrific villa for honeymooners, couples, families, and/or wedding parties.
