Elysium is located on the Fish Bay side of the peninsula that separates Fish Bay from Reef Bay, on the south shore of St John. Elysium is located above its neighboring villa, Fish Beach and both of these homes enjoy a private and quiet location that is on a side road off the dead end road that goes to Reef Bay. Much of the Reef Bay/Fish Bay peninsula is National Park and it's a 5-10 minute hike through parklands to a little known white sand, National Park beach called Cocolobo where you are likely to be the only people on the beach.
Elysium sits about 100 feet up the eastern hill that overlooks Fish Bay. It faces south-southwest with colorful and scenic water views, gentle tropical breezes and all day sun. The views sweep more than 180 degrees from south to north and include Ditliff Point, Fish Bay, the Caribbean Sea and the hills of the south shore of St John. This tranquil location also provides enough privacy for discreet "tan anywhere" sunbathing. Cruz Bay is a 10-15 minute drive on paved roads, except for .5 mile of dirt road in Fish Bay.
Elysium is a 2300+ sq ft, 2+ level villa. You park on the upper level and enter into the great room which contains marble floors and a cathedral ceiling, and which houses the kitchen, dining, and living areas, plus a (3rd) full bath. Screened sliding glass doors from the living area open to a wrap around antique brick deck with colorful views of Fish Bay and beyond. Exterior brick stairs lead down to the lower level where there are two bedrooms, two marble baths and another wrap around brick deck. The 20' x 12' pool is six steps below the bedrooms and is surrounded by a 400 sq ft coral stone (non skid) sun deck with deck furniture and a 4-person hot tub. This south facing home gets lots of sun from mid to late morning to late afternoon, depending on the time of year. This is a great villa for sun lovers, but the covered decks on both levels also allow you to relax outside in the shade.
The living room and the two dining areas were refurnished in 2009, and the new furniture definitely enhances the richness and livability of the living/dining areas. The living room is equipped with a 32" flat screen TV/DVD plus a stereo/CD.
Elysium offers dining on the covered deck at a table for 4, and interior dining at a mahogany table for four.
The handsome kitchen has marble floors and countertops and is fully equipped, including a stainless steel (s/s) 4-burner gas stove and oven, s/s refrigerator/freezer, s/s dishwasher, microwave, blender, toaster, coffeemaker, cookware, etc. There is also a washer/dryer.
The bedrooms both have king beds, A/C, ceiling fans, and a tiled bath and marble shower. Both bedrooms open to decks and the slightly larger master bedroom enjoys a pretty water view.
