Tennis Villa is located in Great Cruz Bay in a very convenient and appealing setting. It's an exceptional spot that enjoys excellent privacy and peace and quiet, and yet it's a 3-4 minute walk to a white sand beach with swimming and boating in calm Caribbean waters at the Westin Resort. For dining options, it's an easy walk to a beach side restaurant/bar under swaying palms at the Westin or it's a 5 minute drive to the restaurants in Cruz Bay.
Tennis Villa sits on a large lot on the peninsula that separates Great Cruz Bay Harbor from Chocolate Hole Harbor, with picturesque views of both harbors. Both Great Cruz Bay and Chocolate Hole Harbor are well-established and desirable neighborhoods that consist of expensive residential villas.
As with the location, the design of this graceful villa is also alluring. Completed in 1995, the one-story custom design is child friendly, spacious and comfortable. Only a few St. John villas combine this much space and privacy with such easy access to so many activities and amenities. Tennis Villa consists of a 3 bedroom/3 bath main house plus a 1 bedroom/1 bath detached pool house. The main house contains a truly gourmet kitchen plus the living and dining areas, while the pool house overlooks the all weather surface tennis court. The arched doorways of the living area of the great house flow into a large garden courtyard that encircles a 43 foot pool. The south-facing courtyard gets all day sun and affords privacy and sunset views.
A charming guest cottage, (Tennis Cottage), is located behind Tennis Villa in a concealed setting that insures that both Tennis Villa and Tennis Cottage are private and hidden from each others view. The 3 bedroom/3 bath Cottage has its own 40' pool, kitchen and living room, a private driveway and south facing, scenic views of Chocolate Hole Harbor. Tennis Cottage can be rented with Tennis Villa as a 7 bedroom estate, or each villa can be rented separately.
The very spacious and comfortable living room contains 3 large arched doorways that are framed by stately columns and beautiful native stonework. Sliding glass screened doors recess into wall pockets and extend the living room onto the expansive garden patio and pool area. The arched doors open to gentle breezes and scenic harbor views and combine with cathedral ceilings and tropical furniture to create a relaxing summertime setting. A 56 inch flat screen TV and DVD, stereo with CD and cassette, wireless internet and a regulation pool table are included.
The large table in the dining area seats 8-10 and there are breakfast and lunch tables on the pool deck that seat 4-6.
This fabulous kitchen is definitely a gourmet's delight. It is very well equipped and includes a 6 burner Wolf gas range with griddle and hood, standard and convection ovens plus a microwave oven, 3 white ceramic double sinks, 2 refrigerator freezers, toaster, blender and complete cookware, china and glassware. A washer/dryer is located off the kitchen and a gas barbecue grill is on the patio. There is plenty of room for multiple chefs, and this spacious kitchen will easily handle a large group.
The four air conditioned bedrooms, (1 king, plus 3 kings that convert to 6 twins) and the four adjoining baths are comparable in size and furnishings. In order to insure sound and visual privacy there are no common walls between the bedrooms. Each bedroom has abundant closet space, tasteful furnishings and an attached tiled bath. Three bedrooms (north, south and west bedrooms) are located in the main house while the fourth bedroom is housed in the pool house.
