Description

Sweeping grandeur of this palatial home and its grounds are intoxicating. Set amongst acres of exquisite and veritably untouched natural beauty, Marea offers a myriad of ways to engage with the wonders that surround you. Situated just ten minutes from the nightlife, fine dining and shopping of Cruz Bay, this is the perfect spot for anyone wishing to explore the vibrant culture for which St Johns is known. A short walk to its own private beach and only 20 minutes from the world-famous North Shore beaches, Marea borders the national park, providing a heady mix of wandering through nature and living it up in town. The 90-minute drive from the airport is well worth your while when you realise that not one of the gorgeous vistas you passed on the way quite compare to the sheer drama of the views from Marea itself. Designed by revered Caribbean architect Micheal Oxman, and stretching itself across 7,000sqft, Marea combines the elegance of tradition with all the benefits of modernity, including a hugely impressive eco-intelligent system which recycles rainwater and ensures all of the villa’s energy is 100% green. This state-of-the-art technology runs throughout the home. The kitchen is fully-equipped with Franke sinks and Wolf appliances, whilst the Great Room boasts a 60” LED Smart TV with all the fittings and a SONOS audio system is fitted both indoors and out. The aesthetics of Marea, however, are opulent and grand, characterised by the finest of materials creating open yet richly adorned spaces. The Great Room is fitted on all sides by custom Costa Rican mahogany accordion doors which slide back to create a wide, sweeping hall. Exquisite, handmade Italian ceramic dining ware adorns the surfaces. In the daytime, a mere tap of a button will lower blackout shades to shield the room, whilst at night the large windows provide a tantalising glimpse of the stars and island lights beyond. The five custom-designed bedrooms all face east across the sea, with promises of ocean sunrises if the mood should take you. Each ensuite is equipped with air-conditioning and a television and four of the suites boast outdoor showers and private balconies. The real wonders of Marea, however, await outside. From the wonderful al fresco tiki bar to the raised hot tub with sweeping vistas to the cascading waterfall across beautiful local stones. There are no neighbours or anything to disturb you: only the ambient lap of the ocean and the subtle zip of hummingbirds. Or you can fill the air with whatever music you fancy listening to! No light pollution makes for wondrous double rainbows and, from the rooftop star-gazing terrace, you might just catch a glimpse of a shooting star and then realise your wish has already come true.
