Villa Carlota is a fairytale palace nestled in the heart of St John’s national park which encapsulates the wonder and beauty of the island. Built and designed by a family passionate about craft and culture, this stylish home is adorned with pieces discovered on their travels and will transport you into a whole new realm. Situated in the exclusive, gated community of Upper Peter Bay, Villa Carlota is reached by a gorgeous scenic 80-minute drive from the airport and is only 12 minutes from the vibrant town of Cruz Bay. All of the pristine national park beaches - such as Trunk and Cinnamon Bay - are less than ten minutes away and beneath the villa lies the semi-private sands of Peter Bay, only five minutes from the door. Arriving at Villa Carlota you will be greeted by elegant, dusky pink-hued walls and a stone turret reaching to the azure sky: and so the enchantment begins. A grand entranceway leads to the graceful curves of a coral stone staircase which ushers you down to the magnificent terrace. Here, the Italian marble fountains’ soothing susurration makes a perfect accompaniment to the stunning views of Peter Bay and the Caribbean Sea beyond. Five air-conditioned ensuites contain regal beds with sumptuous Ralph Lauren linens and Egyptian cotton towels. Each room combines stylish, dark-wooden antiques with cutting-edge technology: there are smart TVs and Bose systems throughout, including outside on the patio. A home cinema system and state-of-the-art kitchen continue this theme as the amenities are tastefully melded with the period pieces, providing all the comfort of the current century with all the glamour of another. Handcrafted mahogany cabinets, doors and floors, cedar plank ceilings and ceiling fans crafted from rattan palm leaf blades, all leave you with a feeling that no detail has been forgotten. Outside, the grand, infinity-edge pool seems to blend into the sapphire sea below and its waters lap against the very stones of the house, bringing a touch of the seashore to your very door. Multiple veranda and patios, as well as an outdoor kitchen, create plenty of opportunities to enjoy the glorious natural beauty and sunshine. As the sun sets, you can sip a cocktail at the open-air bar and soak in the glowing ambience amongst the colonnades and fountains. In this golden hour, you’ll feel the true magic of Villa Carlota take hold, so much so that you never want to be anywhere else.
