There are wonderful views from other properties on St. John, but here at Maison Miele, you are actually IN the view! The translation for Maison Miele is "Honey House", and the home was built as a special retreat for the owner's wife, Honey. His love for her shows at every turn. There are few adornments at Maison Miele, which makes it a perfect compliment to the spectacular waterfront location. Living is all on one level with easy access to the guesthouse and swimming pool. At Maison Miele, you can expect complete privacy and tranquility.
Sculpted gardens and paved paths are a small part of the ambiance that immediately immerses guests into another world at Maison Miele.
Maison Miele's main house entrance is framed by a welcome shade pergola. The courtyard beneath is a perfect area for relaxation and contemplation.
Just inside, hallways lead to the main house's two bedroom wings. An elegant glass dining table, with seating for six graces a portion of the great room.
But, it's the stunning views that will grab your attention and keep you invited throughout your stay. With wall-to-wall windows on three sides of the living room, it's understandable!
The splash of color in the living room is a perfect compliment to the serenity of the ocean and comes from the Sloop Jones slipcovers, custom made and hand-painted on the east end of St. John.
Maison Mielle's kitchen boasts a large sub-zero refrigerator and a separate sub-zero freezer along with all of the other expected kitchen amenities. With a large kitchen island and wrap-around views, the finest chefs will be at home here.
Remarkable views carry on throughout the villa, as here in the north bedroom. Each charming bedroom suite has a king bed and an adjoining bath.
The king bed in the south bedroom can also be split into two twins. And, there's also a sleeping alcove off the great room, with a full sized futon.
Both bathrooms in the main house are spacious and have an open airy feel. One has bath/shower combination and this one has a glass shower enclosure. In an adjacent hallway is a closeted washer/dryer for guest use at Maison Meile.
This 8x30 foot swimming pool on the south side of the main house is hardly necessary. As seen from the deck of the guest house has plenty of lounge chairs and floats for idling away an afternoon at home.
A swinging hammock awaits you in the garden area on the north side of Maison Miele, where you can daydream while butterflies and hummingbirds dance nearby.
A separate guest cottage at Maison Miele, with king sized bed and air conditioning, is located just a short pathway away from the main house. The guest cottage also has expansive views of both Friis Bay itself and the ocean views to the east.
There's even a complete kitchen with indoor dining in the guest cottage. A full bath makes the guest cottage a perfect addition at Maison Miele.
The pool is easily accessed from both the guest cottage and the main house via simple paved paths. No matter which direction you turn, there is beauty and tranquility all around at Maison Miele.
For those needing total privacy, Maison Miele is as good as it gets on St. John! With it's understated architectural beauty and simplistic furnishings to compliment the stunning surroundings, Maison Miele has no peers.
