The open floor plan and high vaulted ceilings throughout this villa, coupled with the stone and tile work, keep the house cool on the warmest days. If you're a sun lover, you can relax on one of the cushioned chaises set up by the pool, or if you're preserving your milk and honey complexion, grab a book and tuck into one of the chairs on the covered patio for an afternoon enjoying the trade winds and fragrances that drift in from the ocean. Get ready for the evening by taking advantage of the alfresco shower. Outdoor bathing is an experience you won't soon forget. Cap the evening with dining and dancing on the patio while you watch the lights blink on over the island.
Magnificent in every aspect, this villa overlooking Charlotte Amalie's harbor views is built around the heart of Silk Cotton Villa-the expansive Great Room. This room encompasses individual, well-appointed areas for conversation, formal dining, media, exercise, and a gourmet kitchen. For comfort or privacy, the Great Room can be fully screened or shuttered by an on-demand electronic push button system. It is framed by native stone archways onto the 16- by 45-foot pool and its tiled deck.
Off the Great Room is the kitchen and shady alfresco dining area, hung with fragrant tropical orchids. Savor drinks each evening on your own pool terrace overlooking the ocean, or gather with friends or family around a dinner table in a home that you've made your very own for the week.
The kitchen surrounding the large service island is fully equipped with dishwasher, ice makers, and two-sided coffee maker.
Just off the Great Room, in the west wing of the villa, is a romantic king bedroom suite (blue bedspread). The next king bedroom suite is located 12 steps directly below and is accessed by a private staircase off the pool deck (striped bedspread).
Located above the Great Room, a spiral staircase leads you to two decorated king bedroom suites featuring twin sofa beds (perfect for children). They are well separated for privacy and each has a balcony.
On the east wing of the villa is the secluded apartment (5th bedroom) located on the upper level features a king size bed with a sitting area with television and dining area on the lower level. There is a queen size pull-out sofa on this level and an adjoining fully equipped kitchen. The apartment is fully air conditioned with its own private deck. The Apartment may be rented only if all 4 bedrooms are also rented.
The stone archways of the Great Room give way to the tiled terrace surrounding the 45- X 16-foot pool. Over 2,300 square feet of sun decks afford a view of the harbor below. Just steps below the pool level out of sight of the main house is a second smaller deck for sunning with a little more privacy.
Meals can be arranged with prior notice. Savor cocktails in the evening as you watch the cruise ships float out of the harbor toward their next port of call.
