Siren's Song is part of a private estate. The property enjoys expanses of beach that are free from crowds and ideal for sunning and picnicking. If the ocean calls to you, as the property's name suggests, try your hand at snorkeling along the live coral reef or kayaking off Little St. Thomas. These are experiences that will provide you with life-long memories. The views can be appreciated from nearly any vantage point on the estate-from the bedrooms, from the covered patio, even from the built-in benches in the pool and they can provide a special backdrop for an impromptu alfresco dinner.
Located within the 380-acre private Estate Botany Bay, this new and well-equipped villa overlooks colorful sunsets, long-distance ocean views, and several outlaying islands and cays from its 3.3-acre hillside location on St. Thomas's West End.
A terra-cotta Chinese Emperor greets guests as they enter Siren's Song's foyer, and a waterfall and water garden welcome guests into this mansion. The water garden is surrounded by the upper level landing's balcony and a high cathedral ceiling.
On the west side of Siren's Song's main level is a well-equipped gourmet kitchen with two refrigerators. A breakfast bar divides the kitchen from the dining area which seats 14 around a large teak table and 5 at the bar comfortably.
To the right of the kitchen and dining areas, doors lead out to a garden and lawn area with a gas grill and tables for alfresco dining for 12.
On the main level's east side are the powder room and the living area set with four white-slip-covered sofas and a media center. Just beyond this living area, an archway leads to two air-conditioned bedrooms: one of the king suites has a romantic four-poster bed and its own private step-out balcony with a sea vista.
This suite is adjoined by a smaller air-conditioned bedroom with two twin beds which shares the bath. This smaller bedroom also connects to a third air-conditioned king suite and has its own separate entrance. A few stairs lead down from the main level to the infinity-edge pool and the surrounding green lawn. In-pool benches for sitting, five fountains cascading into the pool, and hammocks and chaise lounges for sun tanning will enhance your hours at this sunny spot.
Another table for alfresco dining seats 6. Shaded by a canopy, there's also a poolside wet bar with 2 sinks, microwave, music center, refrigerators, a second gas grill, and an exercise bench with weights.
At the east end of the lawn is a poolside bathroom and laundry room; there are fruit trees, and a path winding down the hillside to a lower-level lawn and landscaped gardens for lounging in the sun or under a shady tree.
Siren's Song's upper level is accessed by a stylish curving staircase, and offers four air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suites with four-poster beds and a private balcony off each suite.
Each of these suites offers a rollaway bed (which may be set up in the bedroom suite or rolled just outside the door on the upper level's landing.)
A smaller air-conditioned multi-function room with an enclosed laundry, computer, fax and internet facilities also has a queen sofabed. Another queen sofabed is on the large landing of the upper level, handsome with its wooden floor.
A deck extends along a portion of the upper level, swept by Caribbean trade winds; this is an ideal spot for curling up with a good book. Furnishings are mahogany-stained teak; traditional West Indian reproductions with massive batik wall hangings, harking back to early island days.
Shell pink is the theme for Siren's Song exterior and pale cool floor tiles, warmed by scattered rugs, maple cabinets, and natural-wood ceilings and beams; arched openings throughout frame the sea views.
Siren's Song is surrounded by mature trees and landscaping, and below the property, fascinating natural wonders are to be found along more than 5,000 feet of shoreline at Mermaid's Chair (the sand bar which separates the Atlantic Ocean from the Caribbean Sea, and which connects Botany Bay to Little St. Thomas, a small island to the west owned by The Nature Conservancy.) These are private areas, just a few minutes' walk from Siren's Song, shared only with occasional visitors to the other three homes within Botany Bay's 380-acre private estate.
Guests will enjoy snorkeling among live reefs, beachcombing, shelling, picnicking, or perhaps just lazing in the tidal pools on Little St. Thomas. And it's only a 9-mile drive to town from this villa to the restaurants of Frenchtown and to downtown Charlotte Amalie. For guests yearning for serenity and peace far from crowds and traffic, Siren's Song is definitely the place...five stars.
