Sol Mate villa is located in the exclusive Virgin Grand Estates, which is a neighborhood of recently built, luxury vacation homes. Sol Mate has a picturesque view over looking Great Cruz Bay, the Caribbean Sea, Dog Island, the St James Islands, St. Thomas and other islands. You’ll also enjoy colorful sunset views and at night you can see the twinkling lights of southeast St. Thomas. Sol Mate is the only house on its drive and with no abutting neighbors Sol Mate enjoys a pleasant feeling of seclusiont. This desirable location is peaceful and quiet, and private enough for discreet clothing optional sunbathing. Sol Mate villa faces southwest, so you’ll have sun on the pool deck from morning to sunset. Although you don’t view or hear the Westin, it’s only about a ¼ mile walk, and we think you’ll find a few reasons - the beach bar, boat rentals, a massage, fitness facilities, shops - to wander down the hill. Walking back (up) to Sol Mate villa takes a bit more effort, but of all the Virgin Grand Estates villas, Sol Mate is one of two villas that have the easiest walk to the Westin. The many restaurants, bars, shops and other delights of the village of Cruz Bay are a 10 minute drive, entirely on paved roads.
Sol Mate has 3-levels of living space to create a valued sense of privacy and spaciousness. You park on the ground level in the front of the villa and ascend a set of stairs to the pool deck level. The large tiled pool deck (830 sq/ft) has the pool and a half bath. Another set of exterior stairs leads up to the 2nd level. This level contains the 680 sq/ft great room with living, dining and kitchen facilities, plus another half bath. Two master bedrooms are also on the 2nd level. The east master bedroom is on the left side of the great room (looking at the water), while the laundry room and the west master bedroom are on the right. Each accesses from outside. A 60 foot covered deck, complete with deck furniture and exterior dining, runs the entire length of the 2nd level. A 3rd set of stairs (exterior) takes you to the 3rd level with the upper master bedroom/ bath, private balcony and the best views.
The Great Room combines comfortable furniture with classic features such as tiled floors, a beamed cathedral ceiling and screened sliding glass doors. There’s a satellite TV/DVD plus a stereo with CD.
The interior dining area is in the great room and has a wooden table that seats 8. On the covered deck off the great room there is another table and chair set that seat 6.
The kitchen features cherry cabinets, granite countertops and tiled floors. Stainless steel appliances include a refrigerator/freezer, 4-burner electric stove and oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, and plenty of cookware and dinnerware. A 12 foot granite bar with barstools separates the kitchen from the dining room, and there is a gas grill just off the kitchen.
Recently updated, Sol Mate is now better then ever. Great for your honeymoon or two or three couples traveling together.
