Plumeria: Enjoy Stunning Views in Blissful Privacy

Views abound from the expansive decks at Pluermia on Gifft Hill.

The stunning 180-degree views from Plumeria’s expansive deck will certainly draw you to this well-appointed Gifft Hill home, but it’s the privacy enjoyed on that deck which will make you want to stay.

Plumeria, a two bedroom plus loft bedroom home atop Gifft Hill, is for sale for $1.05 million on the St. John MLS. The home has a unique gated design which affords the utmost in privacy, explained listing agent Lynn Giovanna, a broker associate with Islandia Real Estate.

“The privacy you can enjoy on the deck and near the pool area really sets this property apart,” said Giovanna. “People really like that tropical feeling of being able to enjoy the deck and have that privacy of no one seeing you while you enjoy the outdoors.”

The home is composed of two pods, one consisting of two private bedrooms and two full baths and the other containing a great room and kitchen. A spiral staircase leads from the open and airy living room to a spacious loft bedroom above. The bright and cheerful kitchen and a full bathroom complete the second pod.

The deck stretches from one side of the home to the other and incorporates both sitting, dinning and lounging areas. A pool is situated right between the two pods, calling for early morning dips or late night soaks under the stars.

“Plumeria is up on the top of Gifft Hill and has full 180-degree views of St. Thomas and Pillsbury Sound,” said Giovanna. “There are amazing sunsets every night that can be enjoyed on the large outdoor deck, which includes a pool area, a covered area and a gazebo. The views from the deck are amazing; it’s one of the features which really draws people.”

With a name like Plumeria, a type of flower commonly called frangipani, it’s fitting that the home has beautifully appointed gardens with professional landscaping maintained by the on-island home owners. The .43 acre property also boasts an actual flat yard with grass, which can allow for the expansion of an additional master suite or a small play area for children.

The home has also been successful in the vacation rental market, Giovanna added.

“Plumeria has been a successful short-term vacation rental for over 10 years,” said the broker associate. “It would be great for someone looking for a house already in the short-term rental market that has a long history of repeat customers. But the house would also be great for a small family who lives here.”

The home’s Gifft Hill location means it is close to Cruz Bay’s dining and nightlife scene, while far enough away to still enjoy the quiet tropical nights. The island’s amazing North Shore beaches are also just a short drive away from the mid-island location of Plumeria.

The jaw-dropping view and the attention to detail by doting owners, really sets Plumeria apart from other properties for sale on Love City, according to Giovanna.

“The house is very well appointed and very well maintained by the owners who live on island,” she said. “What everybody comes here for are the views and Plumeria has excellent views from the deck. Everyone wants that romantic getaway and that is exactly what you get from the private courtyard at Plumeria.”
