On The Market: Casa Tua Makes those Waterfront Dreams Come True


Sit back and soak in the stunning water views from Casa Tua.

If the idea of living a mere stone’s throw from the calm waters of a crystal clear lagoon is a dream come of yours, look no further than Casa Tua.

This two-bedroom home with a separate private guest cottage — perched directly on the Lagoon Point waterfront, between Coral Bay harbor and the V.I. National Park’s south shore beaches — is for sale for $2.1 million, explained Islandia Real Estate sales associate Jane Kelly.

The home, with a total of three bedrooms and three and a half baths, is located in Estate St. Quaco and Zimmerman, just a short drive from the quaint town of Coral Bay, explained Kelly.

“Casa Tua offers someone the perfect dream of living on St. John,” said Kelly. “It’s a classic island style villa with phenomenal waterfront views. This choice property is located in St. Quaco & Zimmerman Estates, a short drive with fetching coastal views from Coral Bay.”

“The home is situated at the end of a long, well maintained drive from Route 107, affording you solitude, privacy and easy accessibility,” Kelly said.

Constructed in 2009 by local builder Jim Phillips on a little more than a third of an acre, Casa Tua’s location is simply stunning and literally no detail was overlooked, Kelly added.

“This masonry constructed designer home includes stone floors, an open kitchen, tasteful contemporary furniture, soothing colors and textiles that are in perfect balance with the phenomenal views of the turquoise Caribbean waters,” she said. 

Find hard wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances in the open-plan kitchen which leads right to a comfortable living and dining area. Spacious decks, both shaded and open to sunning, on two levels and an expansive pool area allow for plenty of space to soak up those tropical sunsets and cooling trade winds.

With views from each room and large windows, one is never far from the amazing water views at Casa Tua, explained Kelly.

“A wall of sliding glass doors open to your spacious brick floored porch which boasts a conversation area seating and a second dinning table,” she said.  “Downstairs are two of the en suite bedrooms, both having full water views and sliding door walk-outs to the brick paved lower level, which includes a large sunbathing area and an iridescent blue tiled pool.”

“The expansive pool area separates the main house from the idyllic guest house, which itself is equipped with a living room and kitchenette in the upper level and an en suite bedroom below,” said the Islandia Real Estate sales associate. “Both upper and lower levels open up to full water views and private porches.”

Stretching out on that deck and gazing out at the reef-fringed water, it will surely be difficult to drag yourself to one of the easily accessible beaches nearby. Don’t feel like driving? Just follow a path right from Casa Tua to the shoreline, Kelly added.

“There is an easy walking path which leads to the water to enjoy excellent snorkeling, bonefishing and beachcombing right from the home,” said Kelly.

Casa Tua offers that special Caribbean charm and unparalleled water views.

“Amazing views abound from this home,” said Kelly. “You can just loose yourself looking down at the crystal clear water and the wide variety of fish to the expansive Caribbean view of the East End, the British Virgins and beyond.” 

“The sounds of the surf is music to your ears and the cool easterly breeze is a sensual delight,” said the Islandia Real Estate sales associate. “This dream will be someone’s reality.”
